Local Dreams BIG! When you were young, you probably had BIG dreams! Our Trinity, NC resident, Landon Wall, is just one of those young dreamers. When Landon was 6, he asked his father, Ken, to teach him to play the guitar. At age 7, he started looking for more instruction. For 8 months Bob Spencer (www.themoodswingzband.com) was Landon’s first professional guitar instructor. Due to scheduling conflicts, Landon was forced to find another instructor. Today, Dom McManus (www.dominicmcmanus.com) is Landon’s guitar instructor; Landon has been working closely with Dom! Because of Landon’s supportive parents, Angela & Ken, Landon has been performing with the Legends in Concert, Carolina Opry, Mini Starz, and at other festivals and events. I met Landon at our very own Town & Country Restaurant in King, NC (336-983-3641) where he performed with Chad Belton & Dom McManus - GREAT SHOW! Be sure to call ahead so you can catch their next show! With the Mini Starz, Landon performs Hunter Hayes’ song, “Secret Love.” The company sent Mr. Hayes a copy of Landon’s performance. After seeing the video, Mr. Hayes invited Landon to perform “Secret Love” with him at his concert in Myrtle Beach at the 2015 Carolina Country Music Festival! With 22,000+ people in attendance, Landon really put on a show! But Landon’s main focus was on the interaction he had with Hunter Hayes and the ability to thank Mr. Hayes for writing music that Landon does not have to edit before Landon performs it in front of audiences! After talking with the Wall family and witnessing Landon perform, I encourage you can catch Landon Wall and see where he is performing next on his Facebook page, webpage (www.landonwall.com) or by email (landonwallrocks@ yahoo.com).
