Danny Gokey– After being a third-place finalist on season eight of American Idol, Danny Gokey signed with RCA Nashville and began a career in country music and released his debut album, “My Best Days.” After leaving RCA Nashville, he moved his musical direction towards Contemporary Christian and released his first Christian album, “Hope in Front of Me. The title single spent three weeks on top of the Christian Charts in 2014. His second single “More than You Think I am,” is currently in the Top 20 on the Christian Charts.
Mark Wills– One of Georgia’s favorite sons, Mark Wills is a multiplatinum-selling country music star with eight top-10 hits to his name including “19 Something,” “Wish You Were Here,” and “Don’t Laugh at Me,” all of which (more) received nominations for Single, Song and Video of the Year by the Country Music Association. Wills won the Academy of Country Music award for Top New Male Vocalist in 1998. In 2002, his single “19 Something,” spent six consecutive weeks at No. 1 and was the most-played song of the year.
Montgomery Gentry– Is an American Country duo who has charted more than 20 Chart singles including five No. 1 Hits to date. The duo was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2009 and hasn’t slowed down! They just released their newest album, “Folks Like Us,” in June of 2015.
Dustin Lynch– Broken Bow Records artist, Dustin Lynch, occupies a unique place in today’s Country Music. Thanks to his classic sensibilities, he’s been heralded as the heir to George Strait’s throne. Yet with one listen to, “Where it’s At,” it is obvious the young Tennessee native knows how to combine his traditional influences with an edgy intensity that places him at the vanguard of today’s contemporary Country scene.
Kellie Pickler– Kellie is an American country music artist and television personality. Over the course of three albums, hundreds of concert appearances and a breathtaking 2013 win on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, she has earned the admiration and attention of countless fans, serving as both inspiration and role model. Kelli has just released her newest single, “Feeling Tonight.”
Eric Paslay– This young man definitely knows how to craft a hit song. Jake Owen, Rascal Flatts, Love and Theft and the Eli Young Band have all had No. 1 singles thanks to Paslay’s song writing prowess, but fans who have seen him on stage will testify there is so much more to the tall, Texas red head than his song writing chops. As his debut album lead single “Friday Night,” reached the top of the charts and his follow ups “Song About a Girl,” and “She Don’t Love You,” have both charted the Country Charts.
