Brett Eldredge
Brett Eldredge

Platinum-selling singer/songwriter Brett Eldredge has established himself as one of country music’s smoothest-singing vocal powerhouses, biggest radio heavy-hitters and most entertaining, arena-packing showmen. His current hit “Love Someone” is Top 20 at country radio and is the third single from his self-titled record, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and the all-genre Top Albums Sales chart. The record has yielded Gold-certified hits “Somethin’ I’m Good At” and most recently “The Long Way.” The latter tune lends its name to his critically acclaimed and first ever sold-out headlining tour. Eldredge’s live shows feature his six chart-topping, Gold and Platinum-certified singles spanning three albums. The Paris, IL native released his Christmas record Glow in October 2016 and earned an additional No. 1 song on the Holiday Music and Adult Contemporary charts with “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” a duet alongside GRAMMY-winner Meghan Trainor.The deluxe edition, featuring five brand new evergreen tracks, was released in October 2018.

Mac McAnally
Mac McAnally

The renowned songwriter, singer and instrumental virtuoso has authored dozens of hit records for other artists, several of which peaked at No. 1. His own recording career began with a debut hit single “It’s A Crazy World” (1977) and continued most recently with this 14th album release Southbound (2017), an ambitious orchestral adaptation of many of his best-known songs. He has written hits for Alabama, Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, and Sawyer Brown and has studio credits that include albums by Toby Keith, Linda Ronstadt, George Strait, Dolly Parton, Brad Paisley and Amy Grant, among others.

Jessy Wilson
Jessy Wilson

Years before she toured the world alongside Alicia Keys, wrote songs with John Legend, belted the Southern rhythm and blues with Muddy Magnolias and kicked off a solo career with 2019’s Phase, Jessy Wilson grew up in Brooklyn, listening to the diverse sounds that filled her family’s apartment. Those influences come together on Phase, the GRAMMY-nominated songwriter’s first release as a solo artist. Written and recorded with producer Patrick Carney—drummer for the Black Keys—Phase brews up its own storm of soulful sound. Gritty and progressive, Phase reintroduces Jessy Wilson as never heard her before: undiluted, unaccompanied and unleashed.

Dylan Scott
Dylan Scott

It’s a long way from the outskirts of Bastrop, LA to the No. 1 spot at Country radio, each mile marked by passion, perseverance, and sweat. Scott’s romantic platinum-certified hit “My Girl” went to No. 1 and his gold-certified “Hooked” was a Top 5 smash. His new album is Dylan Scott Deluxe Edition, which includes three powerful new tracks to join the original album’s 13 songs. Born into a musical family, Scott’s father played guitar for stars like Freddy Fender and Freddie Hart. By the time Scott arrived in Nashville to start chasing his own dreams, he was still only in high school, but his drive was obvious for all to see. Scott’s self-titled album debut landed at No. 5 on Billboard’s Country Albums chart, helping him gather over 535 million on-demand streams and 4 million stream equivalent songs in the process. He made a triumphant Grand Ole Opry debut and launched a headlining tour, selling out some of the nation’s biggest clubs for crowds of over 3,000.
