Thomas Fountain

thomas fountainThomas Fountain, born and raised in the mountains of North Georgia, has been entertaining audiences for several years but decided in 2013 to take a different direction with his music. 

It paid off as he won 2014 Georgia Country Male Artist of the Year and 2014 Georgia Overall Artist of the Year.   Influenced by writers such as Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson and Mo Pitney, Thomas chose to go against the grain to create lyrics that are honest and relatable.

The music he is creating is country to the core and his soulful delivery with a vintage feel puts you in his story reflected in every song he writes.

His most recent EP and his new direction for his songwriting skills have quickly garnered the attention of many in the industry, allowing him the opportunity to open for such acts as Chris Stapleton, Trace Adkins, and Joe Diffe.   Thomas’ goal is growing his fan base nationwide and interacting with as many of his fans as possible.

He is already a local favorite and can’t wait to take his music across the country to the people who support his music, his story and his journey through the music he loves. 

Thomas Fountain is heading to the studio this winter to release his second EP insuring his fans of real, raw, rootsy country music.

What are people saying about Thomas Fountain: As a huge fan of live music it didn’t take more than a few notes for me to be hooked on Thomas. It’s more than the flawless chords and soulful vocals, it’s the connection he has with every note he plays and lyrics he sings. His talent shines bright and always leaves me wanting more.
