About Kip Moore
Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Kip Moore just returned from his second noteworthy headlining stint in The U.K. this year where he was praised as “without a doubt the best live performer on the Country circuit right now” (Entertainment Focus). Moore is currently gearing up to continue his “wildly successful” (Chicago Tribune) ROOM TO SPARE: ACOUSTIC TOUR for a third leg this fall, following two previously sold-out runs meeting capacity crowds at every stop in the U.S., Canada and The U.K.. The anticipated run will kick off in Grand Rapids, MI on 10/10 and Moore has invited special guests Tucker Beathard, Devin Dawson and Kylie Morgan along for select dates. Moore’s new single “She’s Mine” is taken from his upcoming fourth studio album, of which more details will be revealed in the coming weeks. The forthcoming project follows his ROOM TO SPARE: THE ACOUSTIC SESSIONS EP which sparked his acoustic tour and his third studio album SLOWHEART, which garnered instant praise from critics as his “most complete, cohesive declaration of his artistic sensibilities yet” (NPR), as well landing on multiple “Best Of” lists including Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, UpRoxx, Bobby Bones Show and many more. SLOWHEART included Moore’s fourth No. One single and follows the critical acclaim that surrounded Moore’s sophomore album WILD ONES and his PLATINUM debut album UP ALL NIGHT that spawned three No. One hit singles.

The pioneer behind the sport of professional bull riding, Tuff Hedeman, is returning to Las Vegas, and to the South Point Arena and Equestrian Center, on Saturday, March 3 with his signature event, newly titled the “Tuff Hedeman Bull Riding Tour.” Top ranked bull riders and bulls will compete for one night only as four-time World Champion and Pro Rodeo Hall of Famer, Tuff Hedeman, lines up the roster of World Champions and Wrangler National Finals Rodeo athletes to compete for the championship title.

It will be an amazing sport filled weekend.”

 

The Tuff Hedeman Bull Riding Las Vegas event is the highlight of the industry that pits man verses bull in a two-hour long bull riding competition that promises to captivate and entertain fans.

The event concludes in a final four man round where the competitor must ride to win the lion’s share of the prize money. Las Vegas will be the third stop on the Tuff Hedeman Bull Riding Tour in 2018. The competition in Las Vegas follows previous events held in Hobbs, New Mexico and El Paso, Texas where bull riders earned points towards a World Finals bonus and World title.

 

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and the competition will get underway at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at www.tuffhedemanbullriding.com. Follow Tuff Hedeman on Facebook and Instagram @TuffHedemanOfficial. Schedule, roster of competitors and appearances will be released at a later date.

About Rodney Carrington:
A native of Longview, Texas, Carrington first came to prominence with a series of appearances on morning radio shows across the United States, such as The Bob & Tom Show. The exposure led Carrington to become one of the most sought-after comedians on the live comedy circuit. In 1998, he released his debut album, Hangin’ With Rodney, which led to a successful string of albums, including Rodney Carrington Live, Nut Sack, and Morning Wood, which earned an RIAA Gold certification for sales of 500,000 copies – a rare occurrence for a comedian in the 2000s. He brought his talents to the big screen, appearing with Toby Keith in Beer For My Horses, and his own ABC-TV sitcom, appropriately titled Rodney, which ran for two successful seasons. Carrington has appeared on countless other TV shows, including the ACA (American Country Awards) and hosting the American Country New Year’s Eve Live show on FOX. He also won “Supporting Character of the Year” from the CMT Music Video Awards for his appearance on the Trace Adkins’ music video “I Got My Game On.” Carrington continues to tour and maintain a strong connection to his audience, both at live shows and through social media.

Old Dominion
Proving that they are not your average country band, Old Dominion lend old-fashioned country charm, lyrical wit and rock n’ roll grit into radio-friendly hook-heavy pop nuggets. Old Dominion has emerged as one of the hottest breaking bands in country music, fusing clever lyrics and an infectious sound. The band released their first full-length album Meat and Candy, which Entertainment Weekly called a “deceptively smart, occasionally cheeky, stellar debut.” Old Dominion released their platinum two-week No.1“Break Up With Him” and RIAA certified gold hit “Snapback” prior to their third single “Song For Another Time,” which is climbing the charts now. They spent their summer on Kenny Chesney’s Spread The Love Tour and will headline their Meat and Candy Fall Tour, beginning Sept. 22, with 15 of the dates tapped as Stagecoach Spotlight: Old Dominion Meat and Candy Tour; the first-ever tour produced by the award-winning Stagecoach Music Festival. The ACM and ACCA Breakthrough Duo/Group of the Year are also nominated for two CMA Awards: Best New Artist and Vocal Group of the Year. Old Dominion consists of lead singer Matthew Ramsey, lead guitarist Brad Tursi, multi-instrumentalist Trevor Rosen, bassist Geoff Sprung and drummer Whit Sellers.

sawyer-brown

Sawyer Brown
With more than three decades of creating 50+ chart singles including country smash hits like “Some Girls Do,” “Step That Step,” “Thank God For You,” and their most recent single “We Got the Night,” Sawyer Brown is always on the move – on the road, on stage, and in their career. Having been described as “the Rolling Stones of Country Music,” Sawyer Brown bounds onto the stage night after night, delivering its own unique brand of high-energy entertainment, and the band remains a perennial favorite at fairs, festivals, theatres, and casinos. After twenty-three albums, 50+ chart singles, CMA, ACM, and CMT awards on the shelf, more than 4,500 shows and counting, and more than a million miles behind them, Sawyer Brown is still seeing the highway miles click by outside their bus window.

 

Craig Campbell

Craig Campbell
Craig Campbell has never taken a backseat to anything. He’s certainly never taken a backseat in his career as one of country’s brightest rising stars who launched onto the country music scene in 2011 and continues to exist in a perfect sweet spot between tradition and modernity. There have been bumps along the way for the Georgia-born artist, on his path from the small town of Lyons to Nashville’s Music Row. But through hits like “Keep Them Kisses Comin’,” “Fish” and “Family Man,” plus countless shows, he’s kept his eyes on his mission – to bring his fans true country music with a spin all his own, through timeless songs that tell his life story. And with his forthcoming debut project on RED BOW Records – flag-shipped by the earnest “Outskirts of Heaven,” which was co-written by Campbell – he is ready to share the next chapter: where that timelessness meets the here and now.

aaron-watson

Aaron Watson
With the release of The Underdog in February 2015, Aaron Watson made country music history by becoming the first-ever independent artist to debut an album at #1 on Billboard Country Chart. This achievement was highlighted by the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2016 with an installation commemorating this milestone showcasing some of Aaron’s artifacts throughout his career that brought him to this place. Press continues to praise his music as well…”a proud country traditionalist” – Rolling Stone, “one of the few real cowboys left in country music” -iTunes, “puts the bite back into traditional country music” -Rolling Stone are a few of the rave reviews his brand of country music has received. In a world where country music at times seems to have lost its identity and roots, Aaron remains firmly committed to staying true to his music and the brand; the epitome of representing Texas, cowboy hats, buckles, and fiddles that have served country music and country music lovers for generations while always staying focused on the core values that have brought his unprecedented success to this point….faith, family, and fans.

high-valley

High Valley
High Valley’s major label debut single “Make You Mine” (Atlantic / Warner Music Nashville) is an exercise in balance and purity of expression. By combining their bluegrass roots with a modern pulse, brothers Brad and Curtis Rempel have created something that feels simultaneously fresh and timeless.

 

Beginning with a burst of turbocharged acoustic guitar, the tune builds momentum with a four- on-the-floor kick drum and rousing group choruses that beg to be shouted at full-volume. This energetic attack is mirrored by the determination and confidence in the lyrics, aimed at winning over a “soul miner’s daughter.” Also remarkable is how “Make You Mine” refuses to be overwhelmed by electric instrumentation, staying close to its acoustic core. That was a very conscious decision, according to mandolin player/harmony vocalist Curtis. “Even getting some buddies in the studio and just shouting out lyrics, bringing energy in that way instead of always defaulting to crunchy guitars and things like that,” says Curtis. “That’s what we’re all about.”

 

Earlier this year, Brad and Curtis played the song at the Grand Ole Opry and were fortunate to be accompanied in the hallowed circle by one of their biggest influences, Ricky Skaggs. Though Skaggs’ early ’80s heyday pre-dates either brother, they’ve been longtime fans since discovering him on the lone AM radio station they could receive growing up.

 

While their upbringing didn’t exactly acquaint them with the Billboard 100, it’s that insulation that helped cement their musical ideals and love of simple, classic country, allowing High Valley’s music to feel simultaneously fresh and timeless. Dear Life, their major label debut releasing November 18 on Atlantic/Warner Music Nashville, is an album that fuses tradition with wide-eyed musical exploration, stays true to their family-first value system and celebrates resilient positivity.

 

High Valley learned to become skilled digital citizens, building an avid fan base that is actively involved in selecting the duo’s songs through the High Valley app and connecting with each other via social media. As a result, they have amassed more than 10 million song streams worldwide – including 5.75 million for lead single “Make You Mine,” which also represents the duo’s first Top 30 and climbing radio hit.
 

jackson-michelson

Jackson Michelson
Raised in Corvallis, Oregon, Jackson Michelson kicked off his country career on the West Coast, carving out a sound that blended the rootsy twang of the American South with the sunny, feel-good spirit of the Pacific Coast. Nashville — the official capital of country music — lay 2,300 miles to the southeast, but Michelson focused on his home turf first, building an audience of West Coast fans who were drawn to his high-energy shows and relatable songwriting. By the time he did move to Nashville, he’d already spent years on the road, growing his fan base show-by-show and earning a record contract with Curb Records in the process. Songs like “The Good Life,” which has since become a popular track on SiriusXM radio, helped spread Michelson’s music to new fans across the country. Now, with a record deal under his belt, Michelson is prepping for the next phase of his career.
