Lyndie Burris has been performing country music for over 25 years. In that time she has performed all over the southeast and has had the honor of serving as the opening act for several national country artists including, Charlie Daniels, Kellie Pickler, Blake Shelton, and Tracy Lawrence. After spending 8 years pursuing her dream in Nashville, Lyndie has returned to make Clay County her permanent home. She is very excited to be a part of the 2019 Ham Jam Line Up.
Luna Cruise is an all original rock band, poetry-styled vocal melodies with intricate instrumentation. Jacksonville, FL-Based Luna Cruise brings together 60’s-70’s psychedelic nostalgia and a driving groove. Forming a contemporary sound reminiscent of classic icons with a new age twist.
Katlyn Lowe is a force to be reckoned with. A talented singer, performer, and songwriter who exudes a measure of honesty and confidence that makes her a unique and undeniable fixture on Nashville’s emerging country landscape. Lowe’s self-penned, spirited debut radio single, “Rise Up” charted at an impressive #69 on country radio’s Music Row charts in 2018 and her sophomore single, “Wild,” rose to #44 on the charts just prior to the release of her debut album, Chasing Tomorrow. Her third single, “Last Time,” again co-written by Lowe impacts radio this October.
