Opening Act - Logan Mize

 

He’s a new voice…. an honest new voice. That would be Heartland Country-Rocker, Logan Mize.

Just listen to his no-nonsense single “Used Up,” a hit-the-road anthem for every guy who’s endured a crushing breakup. Mize delivers it with raw candor, and gritty passion. It’s no wonder the song was recently a “Highway Find” on Sirius XM’s The Highway. You can catch the lyric video on his website, loganmize.com.

Mize spent a good part of 2013 behind the camera in a couple of high profile turns on the small screen. The Kansas native found himself guest starring in two nationally-watched TV appearances that undoubtedly introduced him to new audiences.
