A prolific painter and watercolorist, Wyatt Waters’ most recent book is The Watercolor Road – Painting and Writing Through the American’s South.
The book is a collection of over 100 paintings and twenty-one essays, plus an array of adages that depict southern life. The journey spans Arkansas, Louisiana, the Blue Ridge Mountains, the low country marshes of South Carolina, across southern farmlands and down to the balmy Florida Keys — plus points in between.
Waters’ previous books include Another Coat of Paint, Painting Home, An Oxford Sketchbook, and in collaboration with Mississippi restauranteur, Robert St. John, A Southern Palate, Southern Seasons, An Italian Palate, and A Mississippi Palate.
Wyatt is co-host with St. John of Mississippi Public Broadcasting’s television series, Palate to Palette, a traveling culinary and art series set in Italy and Mississippi.
Ally Durr is a singer songwriter from Jackson, MS. Her latest releases include the singles What You Livin For and Keep Fighting, which is included on the soundtrack of the film, I’m From You.
Singer-songwriter Walker Wilson saved money to move to Nashville in 2021. The move paid off when he landed a heralded spot on NBC’s The Voice. Wilson was coached by Blake Shelton and made it to the Battle Round.
Since then he has released the singles, Little Less Here, Wanna Want You and Dear Raymond.
