More Info

Blake Shelton: Born in Ada, Oklahoma, Blake Shelton took to music from an early age. He learned to play guitar at age 12, and by the time he was 16, he was already an award-winning, amateur musician. After graduating high school, Shelton journeyed to Nashville to pursue his dreams of country music superstardom. The young singer didn’t have to wait long; his debut single, “Austin”, from his self-titled debut album shot to the top of Billboard’s Country chart, and even broke into the Top 100. The album itself quickly went platinum, and set the stage for his illustrious career.

Shelton’s third album, Blake Shelton’s Barn & Grill, featured two Top 10 singles (“Goodbye Time” and “Nobody But Me”), as well as the #1 smash hit single “Some Beach”. As with his debut album, Blake Shelton’s Barn & Grill also went platinum. In 2007, Shelton began appearing on television singing competitions, appearing as a judge on Nashville Star. He also released his fourth album, Pure B.S., which featured the hit singles “Don’t Make Me” and “The More I Drink”. He scored another hit when the album was re-released the next year, with Michael Bublé’s cover of his song “Home”.

In 2010, Shelton released his first original E.P., Hillbilly Bone, which featured the acclaimed, self-titled duet with Trace Adkins. That same year, he also released his first “Greatest Hits” album. Shortly after the album’s release, Shelton received an invitation to join the prestigious Grand Ole Opry; he was inducted by Trace Adkins in October of 2010. Shelton released his sixth studio album, Red River Blue, in 2011. The album set the record for fastest gold certification by a male country singer, and featured a slew of #1 singles. 2011 was also the year that he became an original judge on Season 1 of The Voice, where he has become a national sensation due to his successful finalists and friendly feud with co-star Adam Levine.

In 2012, Shelton released his first Christmas album, Cheers, It’s Christmas, which topped both Holiday and Country charts. His eighth studio album, Based on a True Story, set yet another record, as Shelton gained the most #1 singles of any male country singer. His next album, Bringing in the Sunshine, topped the Billboard 200 and eventually went platinum. 2016's If I'm Honest was possibly Shelton's most introspective record to date, and was heavily influenced by his tumultuous personal life in 2015. Audiences and critics responded enthusiastically, and the album has since attained gold certification. Also in 2016, the country star earned his fifth victory as a coach on The Voice, mentoring singer Sundance Head to a win in the final round.

Easton Corbin: Country music has found its latest male vocalist in the form of Easton Corbin. The Floridian hit it big in 2009 with his cowboy anthem "A Little More Country Than That", which peaked at #1 on the Billboard Country Charts. The crooner is bringing his act on the road this spring and summer; Easton Corbin tour dates are currently scheduled nationally.

After graduating with a degree in agribusiness from the University of Florida in 2006, Corbin moved with his wife to Nashville in pursuit of a recording contract. Working his contacts and his guitar, Corbin was able to secure a deal with Universal Music Group Nashville after being introduced to A&R execs by his uncle. Before cutting an album, Corbin released "A Little More Country Than That" to radio in 2009. The song was co-penned with Rory Lee Feek, of Joey + Rory, fame and quickly became a huge hit. Corbin was under pressure to produce his debut album before buzz for the single faded. He quickly recorded and released his self-titled debut in 2010 and became the year's breakout star!

The album debuted at #10 on the Billboard 200 and was an immediate hit. The album yielded a second #1 single, "Roll With It", in April as well as the current single "I Can't Love You Back". In the short time that Corbin has been on the country scene, he has already been nominated for several awards including the 2011 ACM Top New Solo Vocalist award and a CMT Music Award for "A Little More Country Than That". In support of his debut effort, Easton Corbin concert dates have been scheduled nationally.

Jana Kramer: If you ask Jana Kramer to describe her life in this very moment she would say, “Dreams really do come true.” The singer/songwriter/actress has already had success with three songs that were featured on The CW’s “One Tree Hill,” where she plays the firecracker actress, Alex Dupre. Jana will debut a fourth song on “One Tree Hill” this upcoming season that will air mid-January.

Jana is no stranger to the bright lights with her impressive string of movie and television roles, but she credits her recent break into the music industry as her most important accomplishment to date.

“I love acting, but my heart and soul is in singing. I’ve been terrified to pursue this dream because it’s so personal to me. If someone tells me they don’t like my voice, it’s a lot harder of a hit to take,” said Jana. “This is what I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve wanted to do music my entire life.

Growing up in Michigan, Jana is no stranger to the rich history of country music, crediting one of her favorite memories to baking cookies with her grandmother while listening to Patsy Cline. These little moments are one of the many reasons why Jana hopes to share her music with others.

And she’s doing just that as the singer-songwriter is lighting up country music with her emotionally moving songs and sweet, country vocals, selling over 150,000 digital singles in the first six months. All eyes are on Jana as she boldly graces country music with a fresh, new sound and powerful new music.

“Country music is in my blood. I love country music because it tells a story and I have a lot of stories to tell.”
