About Farewell Angelina
Named after a haunting Bob Dylan song, Farewell Angelina is an all-female country group with four powerhouse vocalists, dynamic songwriters and accomplished multi-instrumentalists. Their stellar blend of heart-stopping harmonies over blazing double violins and guitars has earned soaring praise across the board. Roughstock calls them a “Superstar Act... with Killer Songs;” Rolling Stone says, “Wickedly smart songwriting delivered with a healthy dash of sass... deft playing... into one sonic knockout punch.” A band of longtime friends, Nicole Witt, Andrea Young, Lisa Torres & Ashley Gearing all met pursuing their dreams in Nashville, TN. Each deeply respected and admired one another while they were building successful solo careers, touring and recording with top artists, and writing songs for some of Country Music’s biggest hitmakers. When they heard the undeniable magic of their voices together for the first time, they couldn’t wait to take their show on the road. Major opportunities soon followed including singing the National Anthem for Thursday Night Football, The Unbridled Eve Gala for the Kentucky Derby, the ACM All-Star Jam, and the Albisguetli Schutzenhaus Festival in Switzerland. Farewell Angelina’s chemistry lives in watching each other shine, and most of all, creating moments every night with the Country Music fans they love so much. The relationship they share with their fans won them the fan-voted “Hot Seat” spot of the Taste of Country 2017 “RISERS” Program by over 20,000 votes. They’ve also been named among Rolling Stone’s “New Artists You Need To Know” and Roughstock’s “Ones to Watch” with a tour schedule to prove it. The girls have opened shows for the likes of Kenny Chesney, Old Dominion, Frankie Ballard, Jake Owen, Billy Currington, Maroon 5, and Trace Adkins, to name a few. The girls joined the Bacon Brothers (Kevin & Michael) as the opening act on many dates of their last two summer tours. They are currently headlining their own “Women & Wine Tour” to packed crowds across the US. The girls closed out 2018 having played over 75 shows. The band released their highly-anticipated Women & Wine EP in January 2019. Visit their website at www.farewellangelinamusic.com

About James Robert Webb
True to his blue-collar roots, James Robert Webb walks the line between traditional and contemporary country music. Raised on a small farm outside of Tulsa, he grew up listening to a wide variety of Oklahomans including Bob Wills, Garth Brooks and Leon Russell. His sound is driven by his unique, indefinable voice and organic, neo-traditionalist style fused with modern production. His 2016 debut, Pictures, yielded two top-40 singles on the Music Row Country Breakout chart - “Makin’ Love Tonight” and “How That Feels.” Both broke the top 60 on the Billboard Indicator charts. In 2019, one of country music’s most award-winning and renowned producer’s Buddy Cannon (Kenny Chesney, Willie Nelson), took notice of Webb’s unique style. The pair recently finished recording a full-length project coming May 1. “April May,” penned by Webb himself, was his second top 25 single on the Music Row charts and top 45 on Billboard’s Country Indicator chart. This single also is No. 10 on CDX's True Indie Songs of the Year chart. “Tulsa Time,” his latest release, has enjoyed support from Apple Music and frequent play on SiriusXM Willie’s Roadhouse. His music has continued to attract new opportunities for the “easygoing giant.” He recently played Calf Fry 2019, was chosen to headline the Southfork Music Festival in Parker, Texas and continues to play across the country connecting directly with the fans.

About Joe Hanson
Singer/songwriter Joe Hanson is already breaking the mold, and he’s brand new to country music. He is equipped with a striking tenor voice and a knack for shaping a melody like a sculptor with stone: tastefully and expressively. Even now, Hanson knows how to write the kind of songs that stick in your head, with lyrics that reflect the bitter and the sweet he’s tasted in life. And while he seems to have been born to sing country music — in fact, he probably was — it took Hanson a while to decide whether his destiny was in Christian music, on which he was raised back in Naperville, Illinois alongside country stalwarts like Randy Travis, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, John Denver and more. After experimenting with various sounds and projects, Hanson knew that his calling was to make country music, so he officially moved to Nashville. Since moving to town he has had the opportunity to attend writers retreats, where he met Keesy Timmer, who’d penned Kelsea Ballerini’s “Yeah Boy.” Hanson has also had the opportunity to open for some of Nashville’s best including Brantley Gilbert, Randy Houser, Russell Dickerson and Lindsay Ell. This year, Hanson is working on an EP to be released in 2020. For more information about Hanson go here joehansonmusic.com.  

About Kalie Shorr
According to The New York Times, Kalie Shorr’s debut album - Open Book - was the #7 Best Album of 2019 alongside Taylor Swift, Lana Del Ray and Ariana Grande. Along with a long list of other accolades, Variety called Open Book “2019’s best freshman country effort,” and Stereogum said “country music needs this kind of fire.” Shorr burst onto the Nashville music scene in 2016 with her self-penned hit “Fight Like A Girl” and shortly after, the Portland, Maine singer-songwriter became a Sirius XM “Highway Find” and was spotlighted by Apple Music, Spotify, CMT, Radio Disney Country, Pandora, Taste of Country, The Boot and even Billboard magazine.  She was named a “CMT Next Women of Country”, “The New Nashville” by Teen Vogue and a “Top 10 Country Artists To Watch In 2018” by the Huffington Post. She made her Grand Ole Opry debut in 2018 and has gone on to play that heralded stage 17 times so far. Shorr has toured with Sara Evans, RaeLynn, Jimmie Allen and spent the past December supporting LeAnn Rimes’ “You And Me And Christmas” Tour. From her work with the all-female, singer-songwriter collective Song Suffragettes, Shorr has been featured on PBS NewsHour, NPR’s “Morning Edition” and “On Point” as well as in ELLE Magazine. She rang in 2020 performing for over 200,000 people at Nashville’s largest-ever New Year’s Eve show with Keith Urban, Jason Isbell, The Struts and more. With wide praise for her current album Open Book coming from diverse outlets like NPR, Slate, People, No Depression, Rolling Stone and more, Shorr’s new year is already lighting up with The Guardian (UK) and The Tennessean calling her an artist to watch in 2020.

About Paul Bogart
Though his songs are fresh and he himself is young, Paul Bogart is an old soul with a knack for capturing time-honored traditions and summing up classic sentiments in catchy, commercially-viable songs. Exuding sincerity and a rare, down-to-earth charm, he is, simply put, the epitome of traditional country music. After nearly a decade of writing, playing and touring, Bogart has begun pulling in big numbers in every arena, literally. Whether it’s the main stage at the AQHA World Championships with thousands in attendance or the social media scene with over 3.5 million fans reached through all social video platforms, led by “The Cowboy Way” and “Cowboy Ride” with over 2.6 million views, Bogart’s songs have connected with America’s Heartland in a real, tangible way that modern country has perhaps missed. He released the album Leather in 2017 which garnered critical praise for “grounding itself in the foundations of country music fandom's tenets of faith and family,” (CriticalBlast.com) and Taste of Country called his 2019 single “When the Cowboys Are Gone” “nothing but authentic.” Often compared to Chris LeDoux, the modern-cowboy has written songs for Porter Wagoner, Wade Hayes, Roger Creager, Kevin Fowler and, most recently, one of only two outside cuts on the great songwriter Red Steagall’s new record Hats Off To The Cowboy.

About Scooter Brown Band
After four years and three months, two tours overseas with one tour of combat in Iraq as a United States Marine, Scooter Brown traded his guns in for guitars and hit the road. Scooter Brown Band was formed and began playing mainly in and around Houston, Texas. They have toured North America and opened for some of their biggest influences including Charlie Daniels Band, Travis Tritt, Dwight Yoakam, Lee Roy Parnell and the Marshall Tucker Band, just to name a few.

About Terry McBride
As one of Nashville’s most established performers, Terry McBride has forged an impressive four-decade career in country music as an entertainer, songwriter and musician. Along the way he’s worked with legends like Brooks and Dunn and Delbert McClinton, written countless hit songs and participated in the country revolution in the ‘90s leading a hit-making band, yet he’s waited until now to emerge as a solo artist. His dynamic set list blends new material, familiar songs he’s written for others, and modern classics like “Sacred Ground,” the signature hit from his band McBride & the Ride. Growing up outside Austin, Texas, McBride always wanted to be in his father’s band, finally getting the coveted spot after auditioning once he graduated high school. The early ‘80s brought him to Austin where he secured a job as a bass player with Delbert McClinton. Eventually making his way to Nashville and forging a solid friendship with Ronnie Dunn, McBride is named as a co-writer on 13 of Brooks & Dunn’s singles, with an overall 25 cuts with the duo. This rich catalog includes the No. 1 smash, “Play Something Country,” as well as Brooks & Dunn’s two duets with Reba McEntire: “If You See Him/If You See Her” and “Cowgirls Don’t Cry.” He also placed songs with Garth Brooks, Easton Corbin, Josh Gracin, Cole Swindell, Gretchen Wilson and many others. In addition, McBride and Chris Stapleton co-wrote “Gonna Come Back as a Country Song”  for Alan Jackson. After nearly 20 years away from the spotlight, McBride has spent the last few years returning to center stage. Inspired by the honky-tonks and dance halls of his youth, he released an EP in 2017 titled Hotels & Highways EP and just wrapped up a new album Rebels & Angels produced by Grammy winning songwriter/producer Luke Laird.
