Country music recording artist, Isaac Cole first captured the nation’s attention when he earned a spot as a finalist on FOX’s ‘American Idol’. The 17-year-old has already performed live at popular venues, including Tootsie’s World Famous Orchid Lounge and Wild Horse Saloon in Nashville, has had multiple songs land on the Inspirational Country Music Chart, and has released three albums.

Isaac released his debut album, Country Boy, in 2012. One of the singles from that album, ‘God’s a Country Boy Too’, was co-written with well-known Country Christian artist, Tommy Brandt and quickly landed at the #16 spot on the ICM Charts. The CD also earned Isaac the fan-voted “Youth in Music” award at the 2012 Inspirational Country Music Awards in Nashville.

His sophomore album release came in 2013 with the unveiling of Just a Kid. The title track from that CD gave him his highest tracking single yet, climbing to #6 on the ICM Charts. Isaac’s most recent album, I’m Your Huckleberry, dropped in May 2016.

In December 2016 Isaac was inducted as an Artist Member into the Wheeling Jamboree, which is the nation’s second longest running country music show behind only the Grand Ole Opry. Upon induction, Isaac will be the Jamboree’s second-youngest solo artist member behind country music superstar, Brad Paisley.

A multi-instrumental musician (guitar, fiddle, banjo, mandolin, bass, and dobro), Isaac has performed live to help several charity events, including the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life and fundraisers for the American Red Cross. Away from music, he is an avid hunter and fisherman and enjoys spending time with his border collie, Oreo.

In March 2016 she began working with Grammy nominated singer/songwriter/producer Jamie O’Neal. “I am so excited about this project. Working with Jamie is a dream come true!”  Her current project, Meghan Woods, has a positive, meaningful message she wants her fans to connect with while also having a young, fun side that she lets shine through. Not only is she blessed to be working with such an amazing producer and mentor, but she is so honored to be joined with Vince Gill on one of her songs.

Aside from her music, Meghan has been cast in BIG SKY, an exciting new television series that takes place in the American west during the 1870’s. BIG SKY shows the hardships of bigotry, slavery and greed and the overcoming qualities of forgiveness, hope, restoration and the pursuit of a dream.
