BECKLEY — West Virginia-born and raised country music stars Taylor Made recently signed with Tenacity Records for radio promotions services. Little General Records, Taylor Made’s home label, will collaborate with Tenacity for the new promotion.

Taylor Made, Music Row Magazine Independent Artist of the Year, has climbed multiple charts with their singles “Good Love,” “Things You Don’t Grow Out Of” and “That’s What Life Is.”

Tenacity Records President Mike Kraski said, “We’re proud to be associated with Music Row’s new artist of the year and look forward to contributing to their future successes.”

Little General owner Greg Darby said they have had a wonderful ride so far.

“We’re looking forward to taking Taylor Made’s success to the next level with the help of Tenacity,” Darby said.

Band member Greg Duckworth said he’s excited about the collaboration also.

“Tenacity is going to promote us to a whole market of radio across the country that we haven’t been exposed to yet.”

Duckworth said Taylor Made will release a new single soon and he, brother Brian Duckworth and sister Wendy Williams are gearing up for some fairs and festivals for the rest of the summer.

“We did the national anthem at the opening ceremony at the Boy Scouts Jamboree and then did a 20-minute set after that. We had 40,000 Boy Scouts doing the wave, so that was pretty cool.”

He said the Boy Scout leaders contacted them to set up the show.

“They felt like the inaugural opening ceremony should have a West Virginia act. We were flattered to say the least. We couldn’t wait to do it, to have that many people in front of you and be a part of history in the making.”
