BMI is proud to welcome Ben Daniel to its growing family. The singer/songwriter delivers solid country tunes with sly reverence and crying guitars. Daniel nails rural America (Country boys do drive Pontiacs!) without mocking the everyman, and his warm directness makes for unnervingly intimate ballads and laugh out loud rollicks. He’s a real life, bona fide hog farmer by day, rubbing elbows with the characters that color his songs. Authenticity and attention to detail set Daniel apart, while his obvious affection for vintage country cool plays nicely with his contemporary honky tonk sensibility.
