ABOUT LOGAN MIZE:
Logan Mize is an accomplished singer/songwriter from Clearwater, Kansas, who has deep musical roots to his family tree. His great uncle was Billy Mize, largely known for crafting and evolving the legendary Bakersfield sound, which included musical pioneers Merle Haggard and Buck Owens. In 2010, several years after moving to Nashville, Logan signed a publishing/record deal with Big Yellow Dog Music and a booking deal with a major agency. He spent the next seven years playing seemingly every venue in every town across the U.S. and winning over fans every stop along the way. In 2016, Mize made waves when he booked a solo acoustic tour via social media and travelled more than 20 thousand miles in less than two months in a 1989 Chevy station wagon named “Glenn” running his own sound and lighting performing 2-3 hour acoustic shows for fans across the country.

Logan released his ‘Come Back Road’ album in 2017 which debuted Top 20 on the Billboard Country Album Sales Chart and #2 on the iTunes Country chart. The album features the highly successful first single “Ain’t Always Pretty” which gained major buzz from early support on the Bobby Bones Show and has over 35M+ streams to date on Spotify alone. Current single, “Better Off Gone” (nearly 60M+ streams across all platforms) has been featured on all the major country playlists on both Spotify (Hot Country, New Boots, Wild Country) and Apple Music (The A-List: Country, Breaking Country, Cool Country). Logan Mize has shared the stage with Lady Antebellum, Eric Church, Dierks Bentley, Cam, Billy Currington, and Blake Shelton, among others; and this winter embarked on his twenty-city US headlining Better Off Gone Tour presented by Big Yellow Dog Music.
