He’s a new voice for every man. Actually, make him an honest new voice for

every man. That would be country-rock singer, songwriter and guitarist Logan

Mize.

Just listen to his current single “Can’t Get Away from a Good Time,” It’s no

wonder the song is burning up the charts on SiriusXM’s The Highway. You can

catch the video on his website, loganmize.com.

The anticipation is building, particularly since Mize spent a good part of 2013

behind the camera in a couple of high profile turns on the small screen. The

Kansas native serendipitously found himself guest starring in two nationally watched

TV appearances that undoubtedly introduced him to new audiences.

He ended up in a widely viewed “Fabric Of Our Life” cotton commercial with

Hayden Panettiere of ABC-TV’s lauded Nashville. Mize and his band are shown

performing on stage at Music City’s legendary Station Inn. But there’s more: Mize

played himself and sang, also with his band, in a recent episode of The CW’s hit

drama Hart of Dixie starring Rachel Bilson.

Mize, 28, saw both tube assignments as great ways to trumpet his debut national

CD release, 2012’s Nobody In Nashville, an auspicious 10 song collection that

highlights Mize’s rugged voice, his earthy songs and his ability to merge

mainstream country with front porch rock ‘n’ roll.

‘I was just happy to get the gigs,” Mize said about the TV exposure. “I was real

excited about them. It helped promote Nobody In Nashville. The commercial with

Hayden was more just fun, singing some songs for a commercial. We were just

playing the songs while she was shooting the commercial.”

About Hart of Dixie, he has this to say: “I just played myself in the series. I had no

lines but I was in a battle of the bands club scene and I won the battle of the

bands.”

Making Nobody In Nashville, which is the follow-up to Mize’s very independent,

regional 2009 self-titled first effort, was a musically organic experience. The disc

was released on Big Yellow Dog Music, the imprint of his publishing company. It

is an earthy project that puts the emphasis on Mize’s voice, guitar playing and

songs. Unpolished gems include “State Of Your Heart,” “Hey Carolina,”

“Sunflowers,” “Good Life” and the autobiographical “Rock N Roll Band.”

“It wasn’t auto-tuned or anything,” Mize said about Nobody In Nashville. “The

vocals are really raw. There are parts where I cringe a little bit. It’s a really dry

sounding record, but I like it because it’s really simple. We didn’t hire the biggest

names in Nashville. We kept it very grassroots.”

There are no artifices. Mize’s real guy-next-door demeanor is exactly the reason

why Nobody In Nashville garnered immediate attention from Roughstock, The

Boot, Billboard.com, Keepin’ It Country, and M Music & Musicians magazine. He

also has a fan in country and pop superstar LeAnn Rimes, who not only tweeted

about Mize’s new single, “Used Up,” but also invited him to open her recent

shows in Europe. Award-winning country vocal group Little Big Town also blew

up Twitter with praise for Mize’s “Used Up.”

No stranger to touring, Mize delivers a blistering live show with his commanding

onstage presence. He has opened shows for headlining household names Lady

Antebellum, The Band Perry, Eric Church, Dierks Bentley, Charlie Daniels Band,

Blake Shelton, Billy Currington and Pat Green.

That’s pretty lofty company for the kid born in Wichita, Kansas who grew up in

nearby Clearwater immersed in the music of Tom Petty, Elton John, Alan

Jackson, Garth Brooks, The Wallflowers, Nirvana, the Foo Fighters and Stone

Temple Pilots.

“If it sounded good to me, I would listen to it,” Mize said about his eclectic

musical tastes. “I am a song guy. There is no bias. I like it all.”

His arms-open-wide philosophy extends into family, naturally. Mize, who is

married to country singer-songwriter Jill Martin and has a 2-year-old son Lincoln,

slowly soaked himself in the history of his great uncle Billy Mize. The elder Mize,

now 84, is considered a pioneer in the Bakersfield country sound that emerged in

California and was popularized by Buck Owens and Merle Haggard. Mize didn’t

learn of his revered kin until he was in his early 20s.

“When I found out about him I really researched the Bakersfield sound. Buck

Owens was in Billy’s band. He also got Merle Haggard recognized. He was a

behind-the-scenes guy.”

Logan Mize, however, is not only behind a microphone; he’s also in front of the

cameras. In characteristically every man fashion he’s getting priceless VIP

attention.
