Kane Brown was just a shy teenager when he began posting videos of himself singing cover songs online. Growing up singing Shania Twain and George Strait in the car with his mom in hometown Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia–a small town just outside of Chattanooga, Tennessee–the classic country songs he covered were comfortable territory for the young singer, whose deep drawl will immediately garner comparisons to Josh Turner and Chris Young. It wasn’t long until his audience online far outpaced what he would find on stage: when his cover of Lee Brice’s “I Don’t Dance” racked up 60,000 shares, Brown began to find his following had become its own community, interacting with his personal posts while becoming a sounding board for snippets of original music, too.
“The only time I would want to anybody hear me sing was if I was singing with a big group of people—or if I was in the shower by myself,” he says of himself just a few years ago, when he was another voice in his high school choir. But once his cover songs began racking up views, transitioning into songwriting was a natural next step. As Brown gears up for a landmark year–including dates with Florida Georgia Line–anything seems possible, but one thing is certain: millions of fans will be along for the ride. http://kanebrownmusic.com/
Following up on the success of her 2014 gold-certified debut single “God Made Girls” with the release of her Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music Nashville debut album, the time has come for RaeLynn to blossom as an undeniable force of nature with roots deeply planted in tradition and a finger on the pulse of life. On “WildHorse,” we hear that same warmth and accessibility and sense the same buoyant personality that ushered her into the spotlight on NBC’s “The Voice.” But she was only 17 years old then, her appeal defined in part by her innocence and openness to all that lie ahead. She’s still young but at 22 she can apply a deeper dimension to those qualities. That same Texas twang colors her voice; add to it a new sophistication, a broader palette, with a maturity in her ability to deliver a performance, and you’ve got something special. That uniqueness comes though immediately on “WildHorse.” She co-wrote almost every song on the album and shows no fear in tackling any subject with honesty and sensitivity. http://www.raelynnofficial.com/
Born into the bluegrass brawn of Kentucky, Carly Pearce has never known a moment that Country music wasn’t her destined path. At the young age of 11 she began touring with a small band and by 16 was performing at Dollywood six times a day, five times a week. Over the past eight years in Nashville, the CMT “Next Women of Country” alum has been blazing her own trail with the depth of her songwriting, more than 35 invitations to play the Grand Ole Opry and joining the bill with notable artists such as Martina McBride, Kip Moore, Cole Swindell, Eli Young Band, Hunter Hayes and Lucy Hale of “Pretty Little Liars.” In 2016, Carly earned a coveted opening slot on Kelsea Ballerini’s THE FIRST TIME TOUR and celebrated her first Top 40 hit “Wasn’t That Drunk,” a sultry collaboration with Josh Abbott Band. Currently working on new music for her debut album on Big Machine Records, 2017 is destined to be Carly’s breakout year. https://www.facebook.com/CarlyPearceMusic/
