Sam Hawksley. When he’s not making albums for himself, you might find him producing albums for other people or you may have seen him on stage sometime in the last 5 years as a member of the Bodeans.
A gifted guitarist and gun-for-hire, Sam has performed and recorded with a variable who’s-who of music, a list that includes the likes of Olivia Newton John, Charlie Worsham, The Whitlams, John Farnham, Adam Brand, Paul Brandt, Ian Moss, Wendy Matthews, Vanessa Amorosi, Richard Clapton, Sixpence None the Richer……
Joe Hudson was born in Muhlenberg County, KY, where he still resides today with his wife Stacey, and daughter Shelby. He began playing guitar at the age of 13, focusing on Rock & Southern Rock. In 2007, Joe began to branch out and become a student of Thumbpicking, a style of guitar that started in Muhlenberg County, when he began seeking instruction from well-known Thumbpicker and all-around great guitarist Steve Rector
Joe has since played in numerous bands and shared stages with multiple well-known performers covering a wide range of styles, the most recent being actor / singer John Schneider (who he also performed with numerous times at the Grand Ole Opry), and star of stage & screen Tom Wopat. The ability to back up an artist and play the songs as they were originally recorded is Joe’s strength, but he is right at home “shooting from the hip” if needed.
Awards to his credit include: Horizon Award Winner in 2009, President’s Award in 2014, Co-Thumbpicker of the year in 2015, and Thumbpicker of the Year in 2016 by the fans & voting members of the National Thumpickers Hall of Fame.

After 15 years playing electric, in 2004 (thanks to Chet Atkins, Tommy Emmanuel, James Taylor, and others) he started playing acoustic guitar and became passionate about fingerstyle world! He has performed in Europe, Russia, Canada, USA and shared the stage with greats like Mike Marshall, Clive Carroll, Beppe Gambetta, Bob Brozman and others.
