Ty Herdon: Ty Herndon’s career has produced more than four million in album sales, a Grammy nomination, Dove Award and multiple No. 1 singles on the Country charts, including “What Mattered Most,” “Living in a Moment” and “It Must Be Love.” Among his nine studio albums and 17 charted singles are the Top 10 hits, “I Want My Goodbye Back,” “Loved Too Much,” “A Man Holding On (To a Woman Letting Go)” and “Hands of a Working Man.” Ty is currently writing and recording new music for his forthcoming album.

Brian Collins: Hailing from the music hotbed of West Georgia, Brian radiates a true southern soul. Humbled by his modest upbringing as the son of two truck-driving parents, Brian exudes passion and love in every corner of his career. The highly anticipated release of his album Healing Highway is set for October with the lead-off single “Never Really Left” hitting radio airwaves in August.
Carissa Leigh had an interesting journey from music lover to Music City. While working as a professional photographer and getting her Master’s degree, Carissa knew she would never forgive herself if she did not pursue her true passion of creating music. So, she packed up and moved to Nashville to find a sound of her own. Carissa’s optimistic and playful personality reveal themselves in both her music and performance, which has always been her goal. “My hopes, dreams, and fears are like so many other women. I want my music to connect with them and be relatable as well as enjoyable to listen to,” she says.
Sarah Ross: At 19, Sarah is being called upon to forge the trail for women in the fast-growing Country/rap/hip hop genre of music. The New Jersey native is no stranger to forging Country music lyrics with a hip-hop beat. Signed to Average Joes Entertainment after the label head, Shannon Houchins, saw her on “American Idol” and looked up her videos on the internet, Sarah has been in Nashville one short year yet has already found recording success. 
Nick Sturms: With debut single “Amen” now playing on Country radio and an album release tour in the works for this spring, 2015 is off to a good start for Nick. The singer-songwriter from Austin, TX has had a successful career in songwriting since the young age of 16 when he landed a publishing deal and, shortly after, was touring the country, playing lead guitar for several different national acts. 
Amy Wilcox: Amy was a featured cast member on A&E’s “Crazy Hearts: Nashville”— a reality show that documented the lives of up-and-coming Nashville artists. Amy Wilcox’s new single, “Summer In Slow Motion,” is an upbeat summer party anthem that is now available on iTunes, Amazon and other major digital retailers. She is set to release a new EP later this year.
