Since the arrival of his self-titled, No. 1 Top Country Album in 2016, Kane Brown has ascended from social media notability to become one of country music’s most accomplished mainstays. The 4X AMA winner is the only artist in history to notch two titles in the genre’s Top 5 most-streamed songs of all time. “Heaven” and “What Ifs” featuring Lauren Alaina, the record-setting tracks from Kane Brown, are also certified 5X Platinum, making Kane one of only five country artist to achieve that certification twice.
Following up his 2016 debut LP, which, alongside the two No. 1 singles mentioned above, made him the first performer ever to lead all five of Billboard’s main country charts simultaneously, Kane released Kane Brown Deluxe Edition in 2017. The long-player again debuted on top of Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, climbed to No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart, and is certified 2X Platinum.
With the chart-topping Billboard 200 release Experiment in Nov. 2018, Brown became the only male country artist in more than 24 years to have his sophomore album debut at the top of this chart. His Platinum-certified Experiment has yielded three consecutive No. 1 Platinum singles, “Homesick,” “Good As You” and “Lose It.” That same year, Associated Press named Kane Breakthrough Artist of the Year, and Time Magazine included him as one of “31 People Changing the South.”
Made up of three different but complementary voices, Restless Road is a one-of-a-kind country band with all the makings of the next big thing. With their powerhouse harmonies and soul-baring lyrics, members Zach Beeken, Colton Pack, and Garrett Nichols are a trio made in music heaven. As NBC’s Today Show host Hoda Kotb put it: “That harmony…you feel it in your soul”.
Since Zach and Colton joined forces after meeting on a singing competition (where they met future collaborator Kane Brown), Restless Road has stood out as a vocal force in a genre increasingly defined more by its production than its voices. When Garrett came onboard in 2015, they knew they had something special.
In 2020 the trio unveiled their debut self-titled EP, which includes “Take Me Home,” featuring Kane Brown. Restless Road earned themselves the opening slot of Kane Brown’s 2020 Worldwide Beautiful Tour, which they helped kick off the same week of their release. With all signs indicating Restless Road is a contender for best new vocal group, its members continue to write, sing, and perform together as they take the next steps down country music’s long and winding road.
Tigirlily is comprised of sisters Krista and Kendra Slaubaugh. Though new to some, the duo has been touring across their home state of North Dakota and the Mid-West since they were young teens. After relocating to Nashville, Tennessee they quickly became an in demand act, playing over 130 shows in 2019 alone, including opening slots for LeAnn Rimes, Big and Rich, Justin Moore and Chris Janson.
Featured among female entrepreneurs from all over the world in KEDS shoes’ global fall/winter 2020 campaign titled “Progress: Whatever That Means,” the duo was making waves across industries. After the release of their most recent single “Somebody Does,” rocketed to the top of both the iTunes Country Songs chart and the iTunes All Genres Songs chart, Tigirlily signed with Monument Records.
