Music from the Arkansas native Michael “M Callahan” could not come at a better time. As a new generation yearns for authenticity, American country music is needed more than ever to remind us of who we are. Born the son into a blue-collar military family, Callahan grew up to respect many things such as common values and a deep work ethic. His acclaimed albums Working Man, Chicken on a Chain and Trailer Park Paradise touch on these values, producing three #1 charting songs on Europe’s Hot Disc Country Charts and garnering him Indie Music Channels Country Artist of the Year.
M Callahan has worked with Grammy winning producer Matt Rollings (“Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin”), Dove winning songwriter Michael Hunter Ochs (“On My Knees” - Jaci Velasquez), Grammy winning songwriter Frank Meyers (“I Swear” - John Michael Montgomery) Billboard #1 songwriter David Elliott Johnson (“Over” – Blake Shelton) and many other talented musicians. Callahan cut his teeth in the smoke-filled songwriter venues and dive bars throughout the South East Texas music scene before making the move to Nashville. M Callahan has toured throughout Europe playing festivals such as the “Yeehaw Music Festival” in England and “Festival Country Rendez-vous/The Green Escape” in France. Callahan’s crooner style voice speaks levels to anyone, and he manages to always introduces layers of subtle harmonies with atmospheric guitar work that cradles the lyric masterfully.
