Brett Young’s GOLD-certified “soothing, approachable self-titled debut album” (New York Times) (BMLG Records) continues to make a big impression as only one of two Country artists to hit that milestone with albums released this year. His latest offering "Like I Loved You" is quickly rising at Country radio as it recently entered the Top 30 on the Billboard and Mediabase Country Airplay charts with the accompanying video at No. 2 on Vevo’s Top Country Videos Chart. The single follows back-to-back No. 1 smashes, including the PLATINUM-certified “Sleep Without You” and 2X PLATINUM “In Case You Didn’t Know. "Young is quickly becoming one of country music’s most reliable new hit makers...” (The Tennessean) and the industry is noticing with ACM Award, People’s Choice Award, CMT Music Awards, CMA Award and AIMP Award nominations. Breaking barriers in the video format as well, he landed in Vevo’s Top 10 Videos of 2017 (so far) with “In Case You Didn’t Know,” surpassing 120 million views and joining the rankings with Zayn and Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar and DJ Khaled. As Billboard notes, “... with a full album's worth of music for fans to divulge -- and an opening slot on Lady A's tour all summer -- his impact goes beyond the singles."Fans and critics are also raving about his live show, with The New York Times saying "... Brett Young renders deep feelings with thick polish."

Kentucky native Carly Pearce has never known a moment that Country music wasn’t her destined path and as the only solo female currently in the Top 10 at Country radio with her soul-bearing single “Every Little Thing,” her dreams are coming to fruition. Life experiences and tenacious spirit chronicle her 13-track debut album EVERY LITTLE THING, out October 13 on Big Machine Records, with sought-after producer/songwriter busbee (Katy Perry, Keith Urban, Maren Morris, Kelly Clarkson), emphasizing Carly’s textured vocals and emotive songwriting prowess. The CMT Next Women of Country alum has also been named an Artist to Watch across multiple platforms – Youtube, Rolling Stone Country, The Huffington Post, Country Living, Sounds Like Nashville, The Boot, Whiskey Riff and One Country – and landed prominent features in The Washington Post, Billboard and People. Blazing her own trail from the time she was 11 and performing in a Bluegrass band, Carly has been invited to play the Grand Ole Opry nearly 40 times, joined bills with notable artists such as Martina McBride, Kelsea Ballerini, Kip Moore, Hunter Hayes, Lucy Hale and recently opened for Eric Church on his HOLDIN’ MY OWN TOUR.
