Chase rICE

Country music maverick Chase Rice has become one of country music’s most exciting figures since arriving in Nashville, building a loyal fan base across the country through his energetic live shows and gaining the attention of music critics and industry professionals alike with his edgy, eclectic sound.

Fame often has a chilling effect on one’s psyche. However much as he’s done his entire life, when faced with a No. 1 major label debut album in 2014’s Ignite the Night, as well as a pair of Top 5 singles with the RIAA Platinum-certified “Ready Set Roll” and Gold- certified “Gonna Wanna Tonight,” Chase Rice turned his cheek and took the path less traveled.

The past few years have been monumental ones for Rice: following the release of Ignite the Night, the 31-year-old budding superstar toured the world with four massive headlining tours and stadium-show opening runs for country megastars including Kenny Chesney and Dierks Bentley.

Ask Rice what propels him forward and the country star will tell you it’s undoubtedly a continuous drive to prove his earliest fans right. “You guys chose to bet on me as one of your favorite artists back when it was just 500 people in a room,” he wants them to know. “I told you we were doing this thing and that I couldn’t do it without you. And now we’re doing it!”

Warrant

Warrant was founded in 1983 and over the course of their career, WARRANT has sold over 10 million albums worldwide, with the song “Cherry Pie” taking on a pop culture life of its own, being featured in countless movies, TV shows, and commercials.

The band first came into the national spotlight with their debut album, Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich. This album produced the radio and MTV hits “Down Boys,” “Sometimes She Cries,” and “Heaven”, which became truly inescapable. “Heaven” soared to gold sales and the album eventually sold over 3 million copies. Their sophomore album Cherry Pie was released in September 1990 and launched Warrant into the stratosphere. The album, which spawned the massive MTV & radio hits “Cherry Pie,” “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” and “I Saw Red”, went on to sell 3 million copies in the U.S.

WARRANT has always been successful in carrying the torch. In September 2008, Robert Mason replaced Jani Lane (R.I.P.) as lead vocalist joining the other four original members of Warrant: Jerry Dixon, Steven Sweet, Joey Allen, and Erik Turner. In 2011, this line-up released Rockaholic on Frontiers Music. In 2017, the band, with the same line-up, returned with Louder Harder Faster, which landed in the Top 20, Top 30, and Top 100 on Billboard’s Independent, Current Rock, and Top Current Albums charts, respectively. This year, the band also recorded a cover of Merle Haggard’s “I Think I’ll Just Stay Here And Drink” which has been named the official song of the Professional Bull Riding Association.

Midland

Midland is the embodiment of Seventies California country, all smooth Eagles harmonies and heart-on-your-sleeve lyrics. Their songs are intoxicating, sung with the twang of George Strait. And it's impossible to resist. Now, after endearing themselves to fans with the hit radio single "Drinkin' Problem" and a self-titled EP, Midland unveil their full-length debut, On the Rocks (Big Machine Records).

Midland hearken back to a time when an artist's personal style – colorful suits, tailored denim and well-worn hats – dovetailed with the music. And they tip their hats to other groundbreaking artists.

"On the Rocks is a confluence of our musical tastes and our reverence for classic country," says Duddy, whose wife, photographer Harper Smith, shoots all of the group's stylish photos."This record is truly a nod to the time period we are influenced by," says Carson, a Pacific Northwest native, "and is an effort to bring that sound and that pageantry back to the forefront."

Whether they intended it or not, Midland are filling a void in country, with songs that run the gamut from lush Urban Cowboy anthems to loose campfire sing-alongs. Putting their own spin on a classic sound, they're making something old relevant again. With On the Rocks, Midland have captured a sound decades in the making that is just right for today.

Seether

Seether is a South African rock band founded in May 1999. The band originally performed under the name Saron Gas until 2002, when they moved to the United States and changed it to Seether. Thankfully, there are still dedicated, hardscrabble, no-nonsense soothsayers, organizers, musicians, and likeminded creative badasses who’ve defiantly said, “enough!” Like SEETHER, the multiplatinum rock radio anthem-making machine whose albums, songs, and live performances are armed with big riffs, bigger melodies, crunchy tones, and atmosphere.

SEETHER’s existence itself is an act of rebellion, weaponized to cut through the noise with truth telling clarity and undeniable authenticity. Even as no-talent hacks and cartoon social media living mannequins seek to dominate the discourse, SEETHER takes a stand against those who Poison the Parish.

“We want to bring back musicality, playing loud, and the importance of having something to say that you can stand behind,” declares SEETHER front man/co-founder Shaun Morgan. “It’s about honesty in your music."

Album opener “Stoke the Fire,” is a focused statement of purpose and the message is clear: SEETHER is a hard rock n’ roll band, first and foremost. Lead single “Let You Down” is a dynamic, groove-oriented earworm. The moody vibe of “Emotionless” is relentless and chilling while “Against the Wall,” brooding and melodic, reverberates with honesty and self-reflection.

Sammy Kershaw - Aaron tippin - Colin Raye

Sammy Kershaw, Aaron Tippin and Collin Raye join forces in the Roots & Boots tour. The Roots & Boots tour is rooted in the longstanding friendship between the legendary musicians, and it’s your chance to hear them swap stories and perform many of their classic songs all on one stage.

Often referred to as the heir apparent to the legendary George Jones, Sammy Kershaw blazed his own path in the world of country with five Platinum albums with hits such as “She Don’t Know She’s Beautiful,” “I Can’t Reach Her Anymore,” National Working Woman’s Holiday,” “Love Of My Life” and many more.

Aaron Tippin’s breakthrough 1990 hit “You’ve Got To Stand For Something” became a favorite among Gulf War soldiers which led to a special tour for the armed forces alongside Bob Hope. Tippin has remained a favorite among armed forces ever since.

Joining Kershaw and Tippin is Collin Raye who rose to fame with the 1991 hit “Love Me,” which set the stage for a career filled with accolades including being nominated as country music Male Vocalist of the Year an impressive five times.


“People can look forward to us performing hit records, that’s what it’s all about. All three of us will play our biggest hits. But what’s great is we’ll have people from one-year-old to 100-years-old in the crowd.
