Multi-Platinum Entertainer Jason Aldean has learned a thing or two about the music he has made over the past 16 years, but as far as he’s come, Aldean always looks back home to Macon, Georgia.

Kane Brown is an American Country Music Singer who is best known for his hit singles ‘What Ifs’, ‘Heaven’ and ‘Used to Love You Sober.’ Despite his young age, he is already a popular name in the Country Music Scene. He became interested in music as a little boy and was initially an R&B enthusiast. Kane later began focusing on Country Music after he won a contest when he was in the 11th grade. He realized the potential his rich voice possessed and instinctively knew that he was destined for success in the Country Music Genre. He soon started posting videos of his covers online.

Tanner Elle Schneider, more popular by her stage name Elle King, is an American Singer, Songwriter and actress. Born in Los Angeles, she is the daughter of popular celebrities London King and Rob Schneider.

Her interest in music also led her to learn several musical instruments such as the guitar and the banjo. Her career began with the release of her debut EP ‘The Elle King EP,’ in which she experimented with various styles of music. The EP was well-received and it effectively launched her career. She eventually released her debut studio album, ‘Love Stuff,’ which reached the 26th position on the US Billboard 200. Her song ‘Ex’s and Oh’s’ was Nominated for two Grammy Awards as well.

“Tullahoma is the town that made me the man I am,” says Dustin Lynch. “So, as a Songwriter now, I can’t help but go back and jump in my boots as a kid or a teenager in high school and write from that frame of mind.” Lynch has already scored Seven #1 Singles, Four Top 5 Albums, Eight GOLD and PLATINUM Certifications and a membership in the Historic Grand Ole Opry. But his current Album, TULLAHOMA, marks a true moment of arrival, a leap from rising star to career artist. TULLAHOMA is Lynch’s most personal and ambitious statement to date, depicting the lives and feelings of small-town America. “There wasn’t an intention to write an album inspired by my hometown,” he explains, “but there was an idea to aim at the character of who that small town boy is and to write an album that that guy would like, that he would want to play in his truck and try to impress his girl with. Every single song had to check all those boxes or we just tossed it out. It was a very small bull’s-eye, but it was fun.”
Since his debut with his 2012 self-titled, #1 Album, and PLATINUM breakout “Cowboys and Angels,” Lynch has, in the words of Billboard, “steadily built one of the most consistent recording careers in Modern Country Music.” He has toured with the likes of Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Brad Paisley and Thomas Rhett. With over 2.22 BILLION total career streams, Lynch has earned industry recognition with Billboard Music Awards, iHeartRadio Music Awards and CMT Music Awards Nominations.
