About Easton Corbin:
Mercury Nashville recording artist Easton Corbin is lauded for his traditional country sound, authentic lyrics and mastery of understatement. His self-titled debut album was released in 2010 and spawned back-to-back hits “A Little More Country Than That” and “Roll With It;” making him the first country male artist in 17 years to have his first two consecutive singles reach No. 1. That same year the Gilchrist County Florida native won all of the Breakthrough Artist awards at the American Country Awards – Artist of the Year: Breakthrough Artist, Single of the Year: Breakthrough Artist and Music Video: Breakthrough Artist for “A Little More Country Than That.” Billboard named Corbin as the Top New Country Artist of 2010. "Lovin' You Is Fun," Easton's debut single from his sophomore album All Over The Road, placed No. 5 on the country airplay charts. His current single is “All Over the Road.” Visit www.eastoncorbin.com or www.umgnashville.com to learn more about the Florida native.
About Dustin Lynch:
Since the release of his debut single, “Cowboys and Angels,” Broken Bow Records’ Dustin Lynch has earned a No. 1 album, over a million single sales and has surpassed 8 million views on YouTube/ VEVO. He’s soared to No. 1 on the MTV Music Meter, earned a No. 1 ringtone on CMT, a Top 5 on the Billboard Heatseekers Songs chart, and a No. 2 country radio single. With the release of his self-titled debut album, Lynch became the only new male act to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart in 2012. People magazine declared Dustin Lynch to be “one of the best debuts of 2012” and the editors of Rolling Stone lauded him as one of “Nashville’s Newest Hitmakers” in its 2013 Best of Rock issue. His follow-up single, the Top 20 double-entendre head turner, “She Cranks My Tractor,” further cemented his status as one of country’s hottest new talents. Lynch’s new single, “Wild in Your Smile,” impacts country radio on May 28th.
About Greg Bates:
Growing up in Music City, the Nashville native was born with a natural tendency to write and sing. Greg Bates continued developing his skills while attending Belmont University, where his undeniable talent caught the attention of music industry tastemakers. Soon after graduation, Bates began “living the dream” after signing a co-publishing/artist development deal with Effusion Entertainment and Super 98 Music. Currently, Bates is in the studio with producer Jimmy Ritchey recording new material for his debut project, which includes his Top 5 hit, “Did It for the Girl” and latest single, “Fill In the Blank,” which recently hit country radio. He is weaving together a collection that will connect with today’s youthful audiences while still honoring his musical heroes - Alan Jackson, Dwight Yoakam and George Strait. Bates has shared the stage with Alan Jackson, Darius Rucker, Willie Nelson, Kellie Pickler, and most recently, wrapped up an opening slot on Brantley Gilbert’s Hell On Wheels Tour. www.gregbatesofficial.com
About Chris Janson:
Since releasing his chart-climbing single “Better I Don’t,” dynamic multi-instrumentalist Chris Janson has been garnering nationwide buzz from media and fans alike. With undeniable charisma, Janson brings a blue-collar, working-class, boot-stomping hillbilly redneck attitude to bear on every live performance, earning him opening slots for music legends Merle Haggard and Hank Williams Jr. as well as regular appearances on the Grand Ole Opry. The talented songwriter, who co-wrote the fastest rising single of Tim McGraw's career, “Truck Yeah,” and began writing at just 18 with an impressive group of musicians from the likes of Guns N' Roses to Bill Anderson. The Perryville, Missouri, native first broke onto the Nashville music scene when he landed a yearlong, four-show-a-day gig at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge on Nashville’s Lower Broadway. Janson is currently working with producer Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band) on his full-length album debut, expected for release later this year via Bigger Picture Group. www.chrisjanson.com
