“You can go anywhere and be anyone in a song,” says Bearden Oklahoma native, Justin Andrews, as he speaks of his love for his brand of Country music that is whiskey soaked in roots and truth and delivered with melodic emotion that laughs and cries the sounds of his soul.

Justin’s tried and true voice paints pictures of who he is, where he’s from, how he was raised and who and what he loves with powerful conviction and melodic brilliance. His mischievous spirit pairs well with his grounded upbringing and musical background. Justin’s songs drip of God and Grace and Girls and Guitars and Regret, with a seasoned Honky Tonk sound as authentic and genuine as his farm boy handshake.

The former oil field roughneck moved to Nashville in 2016 and has spent the last 7 years perfecting a live performance that is quickly becoming the talk of the town, as he continues to write songs that are raising the eyebrows of the music row underbelly. Justin signed a world wide publishing deal with Sea Gayle Music in 2022 where he is further developing his country music craft.

A Honky Tonk King for the past 15 years, Justin Andrews plays the songs of yesterday with an infectious personality as rowdy as the dive bars he brings to life as he feels the music in a way that most don’t, and sings his songs in a way that most can’t.

In a land made for writing and singing country music, Justin Andrews Lives It !!!
