It is only fitting that The Contenders will kick-off the first of the BPAC Troubadour Series, a series focused on individual and bands with North Carolina roots. The duo, Josh Day and Jay Nash, embody the true spirit of what it means to be a troubadour and their latest album "Laughing with the Reckless" is a testament to their strong bond and shared experiences of life on the road.
"Not many people know what it feels like, I fear, to be in so many strangers’ homes sharing music and stories, food and drink. But the troubadour knows. We do it all the time. And The Contenders mean to let you know it’s real, it gives them hope, and, lately, it breaks their hearts."
