By March of 2020, COVID-19 had put the brakes on the music industry almost entirely. Festivals and concerts were stripped from the calendar. Tours were canceled. Major artists delayed album releases. And broadcasting for up-and-coming aspiring music artists was essentially turned off air. By the time mid-March rolled around and stay-at-home orders were put in place, according to Rolling Stone, “as cities quieted, the music did too, with even the smallest of venues forced to shut their doors.” Eliminating live performances only exacerbated the challenges aspiring musicians face along their journey. Everything stopped. But the sun always rises and musicians from every corner of the industry are finding new and creative ways to persevere. In support of their return, we are partnering with aspiring music artists within the Western community to help share their music on air, featuring each artist and their music through a Boot Barn sponsored 30-second radio spot. Keep tabs on this page—we will be updating it regularly with new up-and-coming artists.
Amanda Kate Ferris
Red River, New Mexico native Amanda Kate Ferris first debuted onstage at just one week old, resting in a bassinette as her singer-songwriter mother performed on stage. Two years later she began performing with her mother every night and by the time Amanda was 14 years old, she was singing professionally. In 2019, Amanda’s debut album, Time, released, a deeply personal collection of songs recorded with her mother shortly after her mother was diagnosed with cancer. Featuring songs written by her mother, Time revitalized Amanda’s career and helped start Amanda’s desire to leave her country band to pursue a solo career. Now settled in Texas with her daughter and husband, Amanda looks forward to revealing more of herself through her yet to be announced new music, showcasing her powerhouse vocals, traditional flair, and ’90s country appeal.

Small-town Flowery Branch, Georgia native, Andrew Jannakos, was raised on country. His singing and songwriting come from a deep love for country music with family roots in the genre, from his grandfather’s bluegrass band to listening to Waylon, Hank, Whitley, Brooks & Dunn, and belting Shania Twain in the car with his mother. Following his illustrious run during season 16 of NBC’s The Voice, Jannakos returned to Georgia and immediately got to work writing and recording his own material. Blending his pop and hip-hop influences with his own “authenticity and modern country twang” (The Boot), he developed a distinct, pop-forward sound mixed with traditional roots, which can be heard throughout his introductory self-titled EP released in April 2020. At the same time as the project’s arrival, Jannakos was independently booking shows across the country, eager to test his new music in front of live audiences. Following the hugely successful independent release of “Gone Too Soon,” which entered Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and helped Jannakos debut at No. 1 on the Emerging Artists list, he linked with a proactive management team that helped him begin meeting with record labels in Nashville. Soon after, Jannakos signed a recording contract with Sony Music Nashville. Now, the new husband, father, and major label recording artist is looking ahead with more focus than ever before.

Fourth-generation cattle rancher with parents who met on the rodeo circuit, Sykamore lives the stories told in country songs. Country was the music of her people, and that laid the groundwork for her to start writing her own songs. Growing up outside Calgary, Alberta in the house her great-grandfather built with his bare hands, her introduction to music came through artists like George Strait and fellow Canadian Shania Twain. She was brought to Nashville by a publishing deal with Home Team Music, a father-son partnership of Rhett Akins and Thomas Rhett. Quickly finding her footing, she was soon collaborating with top songwriters and working with producer Michael Knox (Jason Aldean, Kelly Clarkson). Having amassed more than 10 million on-demand streams, Sykamore is releasing her debut album Pinto on August 12, 2022.
Vincent Neil Emerson
Raised in Van Zandt County in East Texas by a single mother of Choctaw-Apache descent, Vincent Neil Emerson is a torchbearer of the Texas songwriter tradition. He channels the straightforward truth-telling and resonance of his songwriting heroes in Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, and Steve Earle into something fresh and distinctly his own. Where his 2019 debut Fried Chicken and Evil Women proved that he is one of the most reverent students of country and Western musical traditions, his follow-up LP was a brave step forward that solidified his place as one of music's most compelling and emotionally clarifying storytellers. His songs are cathartic and bluntly honest, never mincing words or dancing around uncomfortable truths.
He not only performed at Willie Nelson’s birthday party, but he also just finished a national tour with Charley Crockett, and this month he will start his very own headline tour. Emerson has been making waves among country music die-hards with a tearjerker single “Son of a Bitch” that CMT.com called an “arena-ready melody.” Taking a page from classic technology, Emerson is set to soon release a cassette tape in conjunction with renown Willie Nelson-backed Luck Reunion, on which Emerson covers the classic Neil Young song, “Cowgirl in the Sand.” Tickets for his headline tour are on sale now at www.VincentNeilEmerson.com/tour.

Words like “groundbreaking” and “trailblazing” are often overused. But for Lily Rose, they may be an understatement. A Georgia native whose inspirations range from Bruce Springsteen to Keith Urban and Katy Perry, Rose broke out in 2020 with the viral smash and debut hit, “Villain.” The modern expression of country music’s most treasured ideal—pure, unflinching honesty— “Villain” has revealed Rose as a talent both 100-percent unique and utterly relatable, with a fresh perspective and forward-looking sound. Both vulnerable and defiant with a boundary pushing country-meets-R&B sound, the track hit Number One on the iTunes all-genre chart and SiriusXM's The Highway Hot 30 Weekend Countdown, leading to her new, ten-song project, STRONGER THAN I AM. With her focus firmly on integrity, Rose’s bold mix of personal lyricism and distinctive language meets the hooky sonics of a post-genre fanbase, as pure-country confessions merge with hip-hop beats and R&B flow – plus representation where there was none before. All told, it gives new credence to this Big Loud Records / Back Blocks Music and Republic Records Country star’s “groundbreaking” label.

How do you explain air movement? ›
The movement of air is mainly caused due to the differences in pressure and temperature. Warm air is lighter and it rises upwards, meanwhile, cold air is denser and hence it moves down to replace the warm air. This phenomenon creates wind.How much air is pushing down on you at all times? ›
At sea level, because of the 60-mile column of atmosphere between you and outer space, there's about 15 pounds per square inch of air pressure pushing down on every part of your body.Why does air move faster over the wing? ›
A wing is shaped and tilted so the air moving over it moves faster than the air moving under it. As air speeds up, its pressure goes down. So the faster-moving air above exerts less pressure on the wing than the slower-moving air below. The result is an upward push on the wing—lift!How much weight of air is always on your head? ›
1000 kg of weight of air is always over your head . Even though air molecules are too small to observe or to see all the molecules of air in the atmosphere above your head weight something . This combined weight of the air resembles a pressure on your body which is approximately equals to 1000 Kg/m.What is movement of air called? ›
The movement of air is called wind.What are the two types of air movement? ›
a) Movement of air due to differences in temperature between two locations is known as convection or advection. Convection is the term commonly applied to vertical movement of air, whilst advection is used in the context of horizontal displacement of air.How much air is in a human body? ›
6 Liters of Capacity
The maximum amount of air an average adult male's lungs can hold is about six liters (that's the same as about three large soda bottles).
How much air pressure do we carry on our head? 14.7 pounds per square inch, at sea level, at least.How much air pressure can a human take? ›
A pressure of 6.3 kPa—the Armstrong limit—is about 1/16 of the standard sea-level atmospheric pressure of 101.3 kilopascals (760 mmHg).Can Aeroplane stand still in air? ›
Can an airplane stay up in the air without moving forward just like helicopter? A: Techincally, there is only one way for the aircraft to remain hanging motionless in the air: if weight and lift cancel each other out perfectly, and at the same time thrust and drag cancel each other out too. But this is incredibly rare.
In which case will the air move faster? ›
More the difference in the air pressure, greater will be the speed of movement. Air moves from higher pressure to lower pressure region.How do you increase air speed? ›
The velocity of air movement in a wind tunnel can be increased by two means. Increase the amount of air supplied by use of a larger supply fan, or turbine, or compressor. Decrease the size of the venturi restriction in the target area.What is the weight of air called? ›
That pressure is called atmospheric pressure, or air pressure. It is the force exerted on a surface by the air above it as gravity pulls it to Earth. Atmospheric pressure is commonly measured with a barometer. In a barometer, a column of mercury in a glass tube rises or falls as the weight of the atmosphere changes.What does air look like? ›
A: Air is normally invisible. From space, the atmosphere, which is made of air, looks like a thin blue band because of the way the light passes through it. That's the same reason why the sky looks blue.How do we feel air answer? ›
Since air is invisible we easily forget that it is all around us. When we blow air in a balloon, we can feel the air pushing on the balloon. It's the same with a tire or basketball. When we sit in front of a fan, we can actually feel the air molecules moving in the same direction.What causes air to move? ›
A: Air moves due to a difference of air pressure which can be caused by different temperatures. Air pressure is the push caused by the particles in the air.What causes air pressure? ›
The atoms and molecules that make up the various layers in the atmosphere are constantly moving in random directions. Despite their tiny size, when they strike a surface they exert a force on that surface in what we observe as pressure.What air is called wind? ›
Option A) Wind – Wind is a movement of air that occurs when air from the region of high air pressure moves to a region of low air pressure.What is normal air flow? ›
Normal flow rate is 1 atmosphere (101.3 kPa) or 14.696 psia at 32 0F (0 0C). Actual flow rate is the actual volume of fluid that passes a given point based on given pressure and temperature of the process.What is the unit of air flow? ›
Multiplying air velocity by the area of a duct determines the volume of air flowing past a point in the duct during specified unit of time. Volume flow is typically measured in cubic feet per minute (CFM).
What are the types of air flow? ›
Three types of airflow system are available in the operating theatres of our university hospital: laminar (or unidirectional) flow, stabilized flow and turbulent flow.What air do humans need? ›
All cells in our body need oxygen to create energy efficiently. When the cells create energy, however, they make carbon dioxide. We get oxygen by breathing in fresh air, and we remove carbon dioxide from the body by breathing out stale air.Why do we have 2 lungs? ›
There is also a structural advantage to having the lungs be separate, the main one being that the bronchial tubes bifurcate naturally, and that there is a place for the heart and other "indivisible" organs in the middle. Separation also decreases the chance of problems or disease in one spreading to the other.How can you feel air? ›
Air cannot be seen but is felt when it moves. The movement of air is called breeze or wind depending on its velocity or speed. Air fills in the empty space available everywhere. We all breathe in air.How much is the air pressure? ›
Standard sea-level pressure, by definition, equals 760 mm (29.92 inches) of mercury, 14.70 pounds per square inch, 1,013.25 × 103 dynes per square centimetre, 1,013.25 millibars, one standard atmosphere, or 101.325 kilopascals.Can we feel air pressure? ›
You might be surprised to learn that air has a weight, although you don't feel it. We have evolved so that the pressure inside our body matches the external atmospheric pressure. You are, however, able to feel changes in atmospheric pressure. For example, if you fly in an airplane, your ears might start to hurt.Why do we not feel the weight of air? ›
The reason we can't feel it is that the air within our bodies (in our lungs and stomachs, for example) is exerting the same pressure outwards, so there's no pressure difference and no need for us to exert any effort.What is a comfortable air pressure? ›
Vanos said people are most comfortable with barometric pressure of 30 inches of mercury (inHg). When it rises to 30.3 inHg or higher, or drops to 29.7 or lower, the risk of heart attack increases.What happens to humans in high pressure? ›
These symptoms occur because the fall in barometric pressure allows the tissues in the lungs and brain to swell (visualize the change in the size of a sponge when you squeeze and release it) in an attempt to get more oxygen. The dilated blood vessels in the brain may cause headaches and swelling of the brain.What happens to humans in low pressure? ›
If the human body is exposed to a low enough absolute pressure, then surface fluids (tear film, saliva, and the air-exposed surface of alveoli) will begin to boil at normal body temperature.
What keeps a plane in the air? ›
Four forces keep an airplane in the sky. They are lift, weight, thrust and drag. Lift pushes the airplane up. The way air moves around the wings gives the airplane lift.How do planes stop so fast? ›
Commercial jet transport aircraft come to a halt through a combination of brakes, spoilers to increase wing drag and thrust reversers on the engines.Why do planes stop in the air? ›
Airplanes stay in the air because of one simple fact-- there is no net force on them. And with no net force, an object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays that way, even if it's in midair 10 kilometers above the Earth's surface. Now, of course, it's not like there aren't forces acting on the airplane.What happens to air on heating *? ›
As the molecules heat and move faster, they are moving apart. So air, like most other substances, expands when heated and contracts when cooled. Because there is more space between the molecules, the air is less dense than the surrounding matter and the hot air floats upward.Why is sound faster in warm air? ›
Molecules at higher temperatures have more energy and can vibrate faster and allow sound waves to travel more quickly. The speed of sound at room temperature air is 346 meters per second. This is faster than 331 meters per second, which is the speed of sound in air at freezing temperatures.How does air flow in a room? ›
Air always flows from a high-pressure area to a low-pressure area, much like water running downhill. Therefore, without an effective barrier, air outside a home at a higher pressure will always attempt to enter the home.What are the two properties of air? ›
A mixture of gases is called air. Properties of air are as follows: Air can exerts pressure. Air can be compressed.Why is fast air low pressure? ›
Air moves more quickly over the curved upper surface of the wing than it does under the wing, which has a flatter surface. The faster moving air produces less pressure than the slower moving air, causing the wing to lift toward the area of low pressure.Does air flow like water? ›
Air is a fluid, just like water. It will also flow from one area to another because of a difference in pressure. Therefore, to create an airflow, we need to create a pressure differential.How do you measure air pressure? ›
A barometer is a scientific instrument used to measure atmospheric pressure, also called barometric pressure. The atmosphere is the layers of air wrapped around the Earth. That air has a weight and presses against everything it touches as gravity pulls it to Earth. Barometers measure this pressure.
What causes wind? ›
During the day, air above the land heats up faster than air over water. Warm air over land expands and rises, and heavier, cooler air rushes in to take its place, creating wind. At night, the winds are reversed because air cools more rapidly over land than it does over water.What are the main gases in air? ›
The air in Earth's atmosphere is made up of approximately 78 percent nitrogen and 21 percent oxygen. Air also has small amounts of other gases, too, such as carbon dioxide, neon, and hydrogen.What is called air? ›
Air is the invisible mixture of gases that surrounds Earth. Air contains important substances, such as oxygen and nitrogen, that most species need to survive. Human beings (Homo sapiens), of course, are one of those species. Sometimes, the word "atmosphere" is used instead of the word "air."What is the Colour of air? ›
Air is transparent and has no specific colour.What are the 10 uses of air? ›
- Sustain life and growth.
- Maintaining Temperature.
- Supplier of Energy.
Air is important for living things.
Breathing is part of a process called respiration. During respiration, a living thing takes in oxygen from the air and gives out carbon dioxide. This process gives animals and plants the energy to eat, grow, and live life!
For example, if we flap a hand fan near our face, we will feel the air and if we ride a bicycle, we will feel the air against our face. A mixture of various gases such as nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, water vapour, and a few other gases is called air.What are five things that need air? ›
- Plants need air ( CO2) to respire.
- Animals need air (O2) to respire.
- Plants need air for pollination ( wind pollination)
- We need air to fly the kites.
- Aeroplane and other airways need air.
A: Air moves due to a difference of air pressure which can be caused by different temperatures. Air pressure is the push caused by the particles in the air.How does air move through the atmosphere? ›
Air that rose just south of the equator flows south. When the air cools, it drops back to the ground, flows back towards the Equator, and warm again. The, now, warmed air rises again, and the pattern repeats. This pattern, known as convection, happens on a global scale.
What is the movement of wind? ›
Generally, prevailing winds blow east-west rather than north-south. This happens because Earth's rotation generates what is known as the Coriolis effect. The Coriolis effect makes wind systems twist counter-clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere and clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere.How does air move in a building? ›
Air movement through buildings result from the difference in pressure indoors and outdoors , which may be created either by natural forces (wind induced pressure difference and stack effect e.g. pressure difference induced by temperature gradients between the inside and outside of the building) or mechanical power (fan ...Can air move things? ›
Air can move things – think of leaves or sand blowing on a windy day. It can speed things up or slow things down (think of cycling a bike with the wind behind you or against you). In olden days large ships had sails and relied on moving air (i.e. wind) to drive them.What is the difference between wind and air? ›
The gaseous mixture in our atmosphere is called air. It includes oxygen, which we breathe and carbon dioxide which we exhale. In fact, it includes every gas that makes up the atmosphere. Wind is the horizontal motion of air, due to the pressuredifference between two places.What are the 4 types of wind? ›
Types of Wind - Planetary, Trade, Westerlies, Periodic & Local Winds.What causes air pressure? ›
The atoms and molecules that make up the various layers in the atmosphere are constantly moving in random directions. Despite their tiny size, when they strike a surface they exert a force on that surface in what we observe as pressure.Does air have weight? ›
Air is a real substance and it has weight. That is why it weighs 14.7 pounds per square inch at sea level. What scientists mean when they give this figure is that if a column of air one square inch in size from sea level to the top of the atmosphere above Earth would weigh 14.7 pounds.Does air flow hot to cold? ›
Yes, hot air rises – but to say that it's the heat's natural state to want to rise would be wrong. It can move in any direction. Basically, heat travels from an area of higher temperature to a lower temperature. In scientific terms, this is known as the law of thermodynamics.What are the types of winds? ›
Generally, there are three types of winds on earth: Primary Wind. Secondary Wind. Tertiary Wind.What is wind Short answer? ›
Wind is the natural movement of air or other gases relative to a planet's surface.
What is wind made of? ›
At its most basic, wind is simply masses of air molecules moving very quickly. The air you breathe is made up of a variety of molecules. Nitrogen (78%) and oxygen (21%) make up most of the air you breathe. In addition to these two elements, there is also water vapor and a mixture of other trace elements.How do you control air flow? ›
- Check Vents and Registers. One of the simplest things you can do to increase airflow in your home is to check the vents and registers in each room. ...
- Turn on Ceiling Fans. ...
- Schedule HVAC Maintenance. ...
- Consider Duct Cleaning. ...
- Invest in a Ventilator.
Air is constantly moving around the earth. This moving air is called wind. Winds are created when there are differences in air pressure from one area to another.
