Although they've only been together for about six months, the Williams Riley Band can already boast an impressive list of collaborators, including legendary rock guitarist Slash. The former Guns N' Roses member takes a stab at country on the band's self-titled debut album, which also features Edwin McCain and Bryan White, among others.

"I can't believe how passionate everyone has been about what we're doing," says lead singer Steve Williams. "Not long ago, I was just a blue-collar guy writing songs in Louisiana. Now a bunch of my heroes are playing with me and my band on my songs because they love what I'm doing, that tells me that we must be doing something right."

The band has been on the road with Edwin McCain and recently finished shooting a video for their first single, 'I'm Still Me,' which they plan on introducing to country radio this month. Fans have already started catching on through sites like OurStage, where they have been a featured artist on numerous occasions. With so many big names already taking notice, be sure to keep an eye and an ear out for these future superstars.
