Horse show organist and Christian singer/songwriter, StacyBeam, has come all the way from the winner’s circle to Broadway and back. But now he’s landed in center ring and he’s bringing the all the excitement of the city with him. With his new CD, Swingin’ in the Saddle, and a roster full of horseshows from San Antonio to Massachusetts, this Nashville based music man is poised to make an impact on the sound of shows all over the U.S.

He can also be heard many Sunday mornings at Christ Church in Nashville, TN where he plays Hammond B3 with their internationally renowned choir.

He is currently booking church concerts and shows where he shares the joyous message of Christ’s love through his music.

“Having grown up showing horses, I used to play name that tune at shows with my Grandma as a kid, so I learned a ton of songs like that.” Beam says. His grandfather, Harold “Coach” Bentley, worked for American Saddlebred owner, Neil Luther in the 1940’s and eventually bought a horse that went on to win three consecutive World titles in the Racking Horse Industry. Bentley’s Ace, the product of an American Saddlebred sire and a Tennessee Walking mare, was trained and ridden by Stacy’s dad, Gary Beam. His brother, Steve, now trains Tennessee Walking Horses. Stacy himself rode his Park Pleasure mount, Peddler’s Sundrop, to six Grand Championship titles.

After graduating with his BS in Music from Middle Tennessee State University, Stacy began his career as a musician full on. Since then, he has performed at some of the top piano and cabaret rooms in New York City, as well as the famous Bluebird Café in Nashville as a singer-songwriter. His range of talent has even allowed him to perform in shows at Dolly Parton’s Dollywood, and as the pianist for the gospel trio, No Other Name. But through all his musical pursuits, there has been one constant; he has remained true to his love for horses and horse show music.

“People have said that my music makes them happy,” says Beam. “And if I can do that, I’ve done my job.” He covers everything from Jazz Standards to Country Classics, Show Tunes to Rock and Roll, whatever the situation calls for. “I really try to pay close attention to what the horses are doing and make sure the spotlight is always on them. I know why people go to the horseshow, and it’s rarely, if ever, to hear me. What I want to do is add a new level of excitement to what is already going on.”

With shows like the American Royal in Kansas City, Alabama Charity in Decatur, and Mid-A Morgan in Lexington, Virginia on his calendar, Stacy is quickly making a name for himself as the new guy with the fresh sound in center ring, and he isn’t slowing down any time soon.
