His hit duet with Shania Twain, “Party for Two,” earned nominations from both the CMA and ACM. “People Are Crazy” took Currington’s already hot career to another level. He earned Grammy nominations for Male Country Vocal Performance and Best Country Song in addition to being nominate for Single and Song of the Year from the Country Music Association.

SATURDAY, JUNE 24 – JIMMIE ALLEN
A native of Southern Delaware, Allen has carried his “never give up” mantra with him through good times and bad, from living in his car to receiving his first Academy of Country Music Award nomination for New Male Artist of the Year in 2019 and a Country Music Association Award nomination for New Artist of the Year in 2020.
In 2021, Allen was named the ACM’s New Male Artist of the Year, becoming the first Black artist to win that category since its inception, and a win with which he hopes “opens some doors for more Black artists to have success in country and more Black artists to feel comfortable enough to do country, if that’s what they want to do.”With the 2018 release of his debut album “Mercury Lane” — named for the street he grew up on — a lifetime of never giving up brought him full circle.
It’s an understatement to say 2021 was a monumental year for Allen, who received the only country nomination in an all-genre category for the Grammy Awards, released his latest star-studded collaboration album “Bettie James Gold Edition,” and published his first children’s book, “My Voice Is a Trumpet.” In addition to his ACM and CMA awards, Allen reached the quarterfinals of the 30th season of “Dancing With The Stars,” served as executive music producer for the Netflix series, “Titletown High,” performed at the Kennedy Center Honors in tribute to Garth Brooks, launched the inaugural Bettie James Fest in his hometown of Milton, Delaware, and appeared on Elton John’s newest album, “The Lockdown Sessions,” with the track “Beauty In The Bones.

He’ll celebrate the silver anniversary of his album debut in 2021 with THE WAY I WANNA GO, doing exactly what he always has – mixing pure-Country reverence with standout collaborations featuring Blake Shelton, Melissa Etheridge, Snoop Dogg, Stevie Wonder on harmonica and more.

With an inimitable voice The New York Times describes as “wholly different, thicker and more throbbing, a caldron bubbling over,” Randy Houser racked up three consecutive No. 1 hits and more than four million in singles sales to date with his Stoney Creek Records album How Country Feels. He topped the charts with the title track, “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” and “Goodnight Kiss” (also his first No. 1 as a songwriter) and earned critical acclaim for his powerful delivery of the Top 5 smash and CMA Song of the Year-nominated “Like A Cowboy.” Houser added a fourth No. 1 to his catalogue with “We Went” from his 2016 album, Fired Up. Houser’s sixth studio album Note To Self is available now via Magnolia Music Group and features 10 tracks all co-written by the Mississippi native. Currently in the top 30 and climbing at Country radio, lead single and title track “Note To Self” marked his “powerful return” following 2019’s critically-acclaimed album Magnolia, with MusicRow boasting the Mississippi-native “remains one of country music’s very finest vocalists.” With multiple sold-out shows in 2022, including an at-capacity stop at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, Houser wrapped his coheadlining tour with longtime friend Jamey Johnson and is currently on the road with Cody Johnson. Along with preparing new music and a relentless touring schedule, Houser landed onscreen roles in Martin Scorsese’s upcoming film Killers of the Flower Moon starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro and more, as well as the inspiring The Hill starring Dennis Quaid.
