Well it may be time to add Logan Halstead to that list too.
I’ll admit I just discovered Logan recently after seeing his videos posted on Reddit, but holy shit, this kid is GOOD.
At only 17 years old, Logan hails from Boone County, West Virginia – home of Jesco White, coal mines, and…not much else. He’s got a sound and songwriting ability that’s eerily reminiscent of guys like Tyler Childers and Zach Bryan, in the best possible way.
After doing a session with RadioWV, Halstead’s song “Dark Black Coal,” a haunting look at life for many who work in the coal mines of southern West Virginia, has already racked up almost half a million views on YouTube.
