With two No. 1 singles, multiple awards and nominations, plus performances on some of the biggest stages in the world, Mercury Nashville’s Easton Corbin has made a lasting impression on the country music landscape. He became the first country male artist in 17 years to have his first two consecutive singles reach No. 1 with his unapologetic traditional sound in the spirit of Alan Jackson and George Strait, but with a vocal twist that only Easton can deliver. A devotee of Alan, George and Keith Whitley, Easton is the genre’s biggest torchbearer for the neo-traditional movement. Easton’s third studio album About To Get Real debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard country albums chart with 20,447 units sold landing within the Top 15 on the Billboard Top 200 with a first week consumption total of 23,756 units. About To Get Real features the Top 5 hit “Baby Be My Love Song” and is the follow-up to Easton’s first two successful albums which included the No. 1 hits “A Little More Country Than That” and “Roll With It” as well as the Top 5 hits “Lovin’ You Is Fun” and “All Over The Road.” The Mercury Nashville artist recently celebrated the release of About To Get Real with appearances on The TODAY Show as well as FOX & FRIENDS and will continue to hit the road this summer.
Nichols racked up two consecutive #1 hits from his critically acclaimed RED BOW RECORDS album CRICKETS. The multi-week #1 smash “Yeah” and chart-topper “Sunny and 75” are now both certified GOLD by the RIAA. Nichols became one of only two artists in 2014 to spend more than two weeks at #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart when “Yeah” held the top spot for three weeks. (The other artist was Luke Bryan.)
The 4X Grammy nominee has earned SIX career #1s and is the winner of the Horizon Award from the Country Music Association, Top New Male Vocalist from the Academy of Country Music, CMT Breakthrough Video of the Year, as well as New Artist awards from Billboard, Radio & Records and Music Row Magazine and a New York Times Best-Albums-of-the-Year nod.
Multi-platinum MCA Nashville recording artist Josh Turner, is one of country music’s most recognizable hit-makers. With a rich, deep voice and distinctive style, Turner has sold more than 12 million units, is a disciple of traditional country music and one of the youngest members of the Grand Ole Opry. From his 2003 Platinum-selling debut Long Black Train to his most recent 2012 Billboard No. 1 release Punching Bag, Turner has garnered multiple GRAMMY, CMA, and ACM nominations. Turner’s hits include “Your Man,” “Why Don’t We Just Dance,” “Firecracker,” “Would You Go with Me,” “All Over Me,” and “Time Is Love,” the most played country song of 2012.
Turner added author to his list of accomplishments. His first book, Man Stuff: Thoughts on Faith, Family and Fatherhood was released in 2014. The Hannah, S.C. native has been songwriting and performing since he was a young child, and in support of music education, created The Josh Turner Scholarship Fund to assist students interested in pursuing a future in arts and music. As a high school student, Turner had very little access to music education, therefore realizes first-hand the importance of arts education in schools.
Turner is currently on the road in support of his latest radio single, “Hometown Girl,” which Rolling Stone Country notes, “pairs the South Carolina native’s unmistakable, country-to-the-core baritone with a modern, rollicking beat.”
