Lukas Graham

Lukas Graham has rapidly become the breakout act of 2016. The Danish foursome, led by vocalist and songwriter Lukas Graham Forchhammer, are topping charts worldwide with single “7 Years” reaching #1 at both Top 40 and Hot AC radio, and #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. Their self-titled debut album has received overwhelming critical acclaim since its April 1 release, debuting at #3 on the Billboard 200 and propelling the band further into the global spotlight with what the New York Times describes as “neatly turned songs that merge the lilt of pop-soul with the quick cadences of hip-hop.” Hailing from Christiania, an autonomous, artistic community in the center of Copenhagen, Lukas developed his natural talent for honest and gritty songwriting. Classically trained with the Copenhagen Boys’ Choir, with a musical scope widened by his Irish folk roots and passion for hip-hop, Lukas possesses a distinct, poetic ability to capture the full range of emotions in his music. Known for a phenomenal live show, Lukas Graham sold out his first ever U.S. headline tour and will continue to play festivals and sold out shows around the world in 2016 alongside bandmates Mark Falgren (drums), Magnús Larsson (bass), and Kasper Daugaard (keyboard).

Bryan is also nominated as Artist of the Year, his second nomination in that category. This is Bryan’s second appearance on the AMA stage; he first performed in 2013, singing his hit single “That’s My Kind of Night.” Fairchild will take the AMA stage without her band mates for the first time but Little Big Town is nominated for their first American Music Award this year in the category Favorite Duo or Group – Country.

Charlie Puth is nominated for his first American Music Award for Song of the Year and Collaboration of the Year Un-leashed by T-Mobile.

Luke Bryan

 

Luke Bryan – Since the debut of his first album in 2007, Luke Bryan has placed 14 singles at #1 and sold nearly 8 million albums with 30 million digital tracks from his five studio albums. He has been named Entertainer of the Year by both the Academy of Country Music (twice) and the Country Music Association. Bryan’s recent album Kill The Lights recently debuted at #1 on both the Billboard Top 200 and Top Country Albums charts. This is Bryan’s third consecutive album to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200. Kill The Lights is the third-largest-selling album debut in 2015 at the time of its release, after R&B / hip hop releases from Drake and Kendrick Lamar. Kill The Lights is also the highest country album debut in the last two years, since Bryan’s Crash My Party debuted at #1 in August 2013.

Karen Fairchild

Karen Fairchild (Little Big Town) – GRAMMY Award-winning country super group Little Big Town, comprised of Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet and Jimi Westbrook, is one of country music’s most iconic foursomes. The multi-Platinum-selling band is currently the reigning ACM and CMA (3x) Vocal Group of the Year, and they are the most recent inductees into the famed Grand Ole Opry. Little Big Town is responsible for some of the format’s biggest hits including “Day Drinking,” “Pontoon,” “Little White Church,” “Boondocks” and their most recent record-breaking smash, “Girl Crush.” Little Big Town is now out on the PAIN KILLER TOUR in support of their latest Capitol Nashville release, Pain Killer. For more information, visit www.LittleBigTown.com.

Charlie Puth

Charlie Puth – Charlie Puth has fast become a worldwide star thanks to the international smash hit, “See You Again,” by Wiz Khalifa (Feat. Charlie Puth). The 4x RIAA platinum certified track, which was co-written and co-produced by Puth, is featured on Atlantic Records’ FURIOUS 7: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK. It has entered the history books as one of the decade’s biggest singles, topped Billboard’s “Hot 100” for a stunning 12 weeks, hit No. 1 on the iTunes Store’s “Top Songs” chart in a remarkable 101 countries, and shattered Spotify records by becoming the most streamed track ever in a single day (with 3.18 million global streams on April 8th alone) and in a single week (a stunning 21.9 million worldwide streams). Puth is also seeing huge success with his hit single “Marvin Gaye” feat. Meghan Trainor, which is featured on his upcoming debut album NINE TRACK MIND along with current single “One Call Away.” As if that weren’t enough, Puth recently teamed up with Lil Wayne for “Nothing But Trouble,” the new single from Big Beat Records’ hugely anticipated soundtrack for 808, the landmark documentary chronicling the incredible story of the influential Roland TR-808 drum machine. A Berklee College of Music graduate, Puth has found himself among modern pop’s most in-demand co-writers and producers – recent credits include two tracks on Jason Derulo’s acclaimed new album Everything Is 4, the R&B chart-topping single “Slow Motion” by Atlantic’s own Trey Songz, and further collaborations not yet announced.

Meghan Trainor – The Nantucket-born pop singer and songwriter earned superstar status in 2014 the old-fashioned way—with infectious, inimitable, and inescapable music. Her debut single “All About That Bass” went 9-times RIAA platinum, eventually received two Grammy® Award nominations, won Billboard Music Awards for “Top Hot 100 Song” and “Top Digital Song,” held #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for eight weeks, and received over 1 billion YouTube/VEVO views in less than a year. However, she didn’t stop there. Her full-length debut, TITLE [Epic Records] crashed the Billboard Top 200 at #1 in early 2015 and broke records as the “biggest-selling debut for a female artist’s first full-length album in more than five years” and “the biggest-selling debut for a solo artist’s first full-length in more than three years.” The critically acclaimed album also produced the double platinum hits “Lips Are Movin” and “Dear Future Husband” and platinum “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” featuring John Legend.  Meghan sold out every date of her first national tour and went on to pack venues during Summer 2015’s THE MTRAIN TOUR. However, this star has only just started to shine, and you’ll be hearing more about her soon.
