  • Gullahorn

    Andy Gullahorn
    Andy was born and raised in the rich musical climate of Austin, TX and then went to College at Belmont University in Nashville to join the legions of songwriters in the country music scene. After graduation, he spent a number of years as a staff writer for publishing companies while playing guitar on the road for singer/songwriter Jill Phillips (who he happened to be married to). In 2004, after realizing that his second child was on the way and that his wife would need to come off of the road, Andy released "Room to Breathe" and began performing his own shows again for the first time in 5 years. He has since released five more records - "Reinventing The Wheel" (2007), "The Law of Gravity" (2009), "Christmas" (2010), "Beyond The Frame" (2013) and the critically acclaimed new record, "FaultLines" (2016). "Andy's songs are full of humor, clear vision, and compassion.

    His voice is humble and strong; his writing is kind and cutting; his sound is familiar and intriguing; and it all comes together around a beautiful heart that holds a truth that is inspiring and believable." - David Wilcox

    There is a small fee of $8 for the concert only.
