It started with three chords and an old guitar.
Now, Landis Frier’s musical journey spans a growing fan base and a stop this weekend at downtown Columbus nightclub Bootleggers.
The Albany, Ga., native performs at the hot spot Friday and Saturday. Expect a high-energy show that spans multiple musical genres. “I have a great appreciation for a lot of different musical genres and there aren’t too many I can’t put my own spin on,” Frier says in an online bio. He specializes in country music.
Given his upbringing, Frier’s passion for music isn’t too surprising. He grew up in a musical family and learned the aforementioned three chords from his grandfather. His mother bought him the old guitar.
Fast forward to performances at clubs and colleges throughout Georgia -- which ultimately led to Frier’s move to Nashville. He still lives there and is working on a new album of original tunes that will hopefully be released later this summer.
Frier has opened for acts like Joe Nichols, Jake Owen, Craig Morgan and LoCash Cowboys. He’s also scheduled to perform in conjunction with the Best Ranger Competition next month.
“I know this journey will be a long ride but I’m ready and I’m sure that it will lead me to a life filled with music! I want to thank everyone that has shown support, believed in me and given me the motivation to pursue what I believe is my destiny...music,” Frier says on his website.
