Craig Morgan

On November 1st, Morgan is preparing to release his self-produced extended play (EP) titled, This Ole Boy. This highly anticipated EP features new songs reflecting about his life experiences and music career and illustrates that his songwriting is still one of the best in business. In addition to his musical career, Morgan is also a successful television host on the Outdoor Channel’s “Craig Morgan: All Access Outdoors.” His first season run, quickly became the network’s #1 Saturday morning hunting show.

Hunter Hayes
At only 20 years old, Hunter Hayes is already an accomplished songwriter, producer and musician who can sing and play with the best, and does. Concluding his tour with country star Taylor Swift, Hayes’s next move is a 2012 tour alongside with Rascal Flatts and Sara Evans. Adding to his credentials, Hayes co-wrote the song, “Play” for Rascal Flatts’ Nothing Like This album and contributed to 2011 remake of Footloose performing a duet with actress/singer Victoria Justice for “Almost Paradise.” This multi-talented musician recently released his self-named album in October 2011, which hit the Top 10 Billboard Top Country Albums, and features his hit song, “Storm Warning.” Hayes writes about life and love from a refreshing point of view, performs with the grace of someone twice his age and most importantly is spiritually grounded with the American values of God, family and country.

Glen Templeton
Glen Templeton is a Southern-born, Southern-bred musician-songwriter and one of country music’s most promising up and coming stars. Templeton claims he never chose country music, country music chose him. Throughout all his other jobs, country music kept calling his name to move to Nashville and pursue music career. His claim to fame started in 2008 when Conway Twitty’s daughters hand picked him to portray Conway, the lead role, in the touring musical production, Conway Twitty: The Man, The Music, The Legend. Since then, Templeton has played at several country music events including performance on CMT, The Grand Ole Opry, The ACM’s All-Star Jam, Country Jam USA, Cheyenne Frontier Days and numerous state fairs and festivals. His likes, looks, and talent have captured the attention of Black River Music Group. Templeton released his first single “I Could Be the One” earlier this year which has debuted at number 58 in the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Song chart. Glen Templeton’s voice is described as one with a rich traditional country with a hint of rock and R&B. His album entitled, GT, is soon to be released later this year.

Lee Brice
With musical influence ranging from Garth Brooks and Hank Junior to Coldplay and 3 Doors Down, Lee Brice fuses tradition honkey tonk with contemporary rock n’ roll for a “country all the way” sound that is uniquely his own. Brice has released one album and 4 singles. The fourth single, “Love Like Crazy” Declared as the #1 country song of 2010 by Billboard Magazine, and currently holds the record for the Longest Charting Single in the history of the Billboard Hot Country Song chart. Brice recently released a new hit single earlier in September titled, “A Woman Like You.” Shortly after the release he was named NRA Country Artist of the Month. In addition to his vocal success, Lee Brice is credited to have co-written singles for super stars Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw, and Adam Gregory. Currently, Brice is finishing up his tour with the 10th Annual CMT on Tour starring Luke Bryan and Josh Thompson. 
 
LoCash Cowboys
The LoCash Cowboys consists of a country music duo including Chris Lucas and Preston Burst. Add to that Jeffrey Steele, one of Nashville’s biggest names in songwriting (“The Cowboy In Me,” “What Hurts The Most,” “My Town”) and producing (Montgomery Gentry, Keith Anderson), and you have a trio of talent and energy that is the LoCash Cowboys. Currently touring the southeast US, both country superstars developed one of the most dynamic live shows that any genre has to offer with their energetic stage presence and vocal capabilities. Their debut album, This Is How We Do It, is a fitting introduction to a compellingly charismatic duo and includes hit singles such as “Here Comes Summer,” “Keep in Mind,” and “You Got Me.” These honky-tonk style Cowboys are also credited as co-writing Keith Urban’s 2011 single, “You Gonna Fly.” 
 
Exile
Exile is a former rock turned country music band best remembered for their 1978 number one smash hit single, “Kiss You All Over” which has been featured in films such as Happy Gilmore and Employee of the Month. The current members consist of original members J.P. Pennington and Les Taylor along with Sonny LeMaire, Marlon Hargis, and Steve Goetzman. With a successful career spanning over 48 years, they have produced more than 10 number one hit singles including, “Woke Up in Love” “I Don’t Want to Be a Memory,” “She’s a Miracle,” and “Give Me One More Chance.” Their unique sound which fuses the energy from rock and roll with the melodic blues of country music captivates audiences world wide.
