Country Music Staples Andy Griggs Joins Buddy Lee Attractions Iconic Talent Roster
Buddy Lee Attractions (BLA) is pleased to announce the addition of two recording artists to its roster. Andy Griggs and Mark Wills—who have become staples in the country music scene since the launch of their respective chart-topping careers—will join the iconic booking agency’s roster of notable country music entertainers (including Darryl Worley, Daryle Singletary, Halfway to Hazard, Radio Romance and more) following in the historic footsteps of award-winning, trailblazing acts (such as Lorrie Morgan, the Dixie Chicks, Ronnie Milsap, Willie Nelson, Garth Brookes, George Strait and Jason Aldean).
“The Country music sector has long provided a venue for a wide variety of musical styles,” said Donna Lee, Owner and CEO, Buddy Lee Attractions. “Griggs and Wills have made it evident, with their consistent demand, that their style of music can put bodies in seats at any venue. Promoters recognize their ‘test of time’ entertainment value.”
“I am thrilled to rejoin the Buddy Lee Attractions family,” remarked Griggs. “I’ve known several members of the staff for years and there is something to be said for a steadfast, long lasting relationship—especially in light of the new landscape of the music industry.”
Louisiana native, Andy Griggs, moved to Nashville in 1995 as a working member of Bluegrass band Jerry and Tammy Sullivan. He landed his first record deal with RCA Records (1999) and made career headlines with his first single,
“You Won’t Ever Be Lonely,” which landed at No. 1 on the country music charts. His song “She’s More” also reached
No. 1. His early successes included a total of three RCA albums [YOU WON’T EVER BE LONELY--which achieved gold record status), FREEDOM and THIS I GOTTA SEE], five Top 5 chart-toppers while four of his singles ranked in the Top 10. He scored industry nods with his most recent independent album, entitled NAKED (Little Hannel Records), which was released in 2013.
Multi-platinum recording artist Mark Wills became a household name in 1998 when he landed the title of the Academy of Country Music’s “Top New Male Vocalist.” Wills has eight Top 10 hits to his name including the popular
“19 Something,” “Don’t Laugh At Me” and “Wish You Were Here” (all of which received nominations for single, song and video of the year by the Country Music Association). In 2002, “19 Something” spent six consecutive weeks at No. 1 and became Billboard’s Top Country Hit of the Year. Wills is an avid supporter of our military who makes annual trips overseas to entertain the troops. He has performed at several events for Champions for Champions, the USO and Fallen Soldier Charities. In his alliance with USA Cares, Wills has lent assistance to launch a national awareness campaign surrounding the severity of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Mark has also been an active spokesperson for Children’s Miracle Network since 2007. Wills is currently in the studio recording music for a new project anticipated later this fall.
“The Buddy Lee Attractions name is characterized by its history in shaping the careers of recording artists who have made country music great,” Mark Wills added. “It’s an agency built upon relationships, hard work and impressive results and I’m proud to be part the BLA roster once again.”
Happy New Year from Andy Griggs!

Today, this year's official talent lineup was announced for the annual Charlie Daniels & Friends Christmas 4 Kids benefit concert. The Charlie Daniels Band, Phil Vassar, Andy Griggs, Ty Herndon, Jamie O'Neil, The Roys and Ryan Weaver are all scheduled to perform at this year's show to be held at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium on Monday, November 24 at 7 PM.
"It just feels good to get together with friends and do something worthwhile that brings so many smiles to faces that don't really have a lot to smile about," says Daniels.
"Christmas 4 Kids wants to extend a special 'thank you' to Charlie Daniels for headlining our concert for the 14th year," says Christmas 4 Kids President, Linda O'Connell. "He holds a special place in the hearts of this organization."
Tickets are $60 and $36.50 and are available for purchase now online at www.christmas4kids.org.
Christmas 4 Kids is a not-for-profit organization that has been in existence for over 25 years providing many children, each year, with their very own shopping spree. The funds generated by the concert, and the Tour Bus Show/Artist Meet and Greet event, are used to give over 400 children from 29 different schools, a day-long shopping excursion. The special day consists of a chauffeured trip from their school aboard an entertainer's luxury tour bus, dinner, and a party hosted by Santa and Mrs. Claus at the Hendersonville Expo Center. To wrap up the day, the tour buses journey to the Hendersonville, Tennessee, Walmart, where the kids receive a brand new winter coat, and $150.00 to spend however they choose.
