MAIN STAGE

Lee Brice is a craftsman, the kind whose boundless desire to hone his skills and relentless pursuit of perfection are matched only by his humility about the entire process. His latest album, ‘I Don't Dance,’ is a showcase for his painstaking approach to writing and recording, with his distinctive fingerprints clearly emblazoned on every element of the album. Don't miss out on seeing his talent on stage!

Nashville prolific hitmaker Jerrod Niemann is speaking from his heart – instead of his liver – with his romantic new single, “God Made A Woman,” now impacting Country radio. Fueled by a nearly decade-long career, Niemann is digging deeper with his forthcoming Curb Records album featuring an uplifting duet, “A Little More Love,” with good friend and labelmate Lee Brice. Known for clever wordplay and attention-grabbing lyrics, the highly engaging singer-songwriter last topped country charts with his PLATINUM-certified multi–week No. 1 anthem, “Drink to That All Night.”

California is not exactly the place that comes to mind when you think about country music, but the golden coast was the inspiration and breeding ground for James Rensink's music to take shape. With a background that includes Pop, Indie, and Folk, James' sound is unmistakably the new wave of todays country music.

Rooted in three-part vocal harmonies, southern twang, and pop hooks, Honey County is a female country trio led by singer/songwriter Dani Rose.

You won't find Honey County on any map. Launched in 2014, the group takes its name from a fictional place, a move that allows Rose and her two bandmates — Devon Jane and Katie Stump — to create their own landscape of story-driven country; modern, melodic pop; and punchy, guitar-fueled rock (an influence that's strengthened by Jane, the trio's lead guitarist, whose fretwork has landed her gigs with everyone from Keith Urban to Ceelo Green). The band wasted little time developing its audience in California and beyond, earning a spot on the HBO series True Blood with Honey County's very first single, "Blood From a Stone," and appearing as semi-finalists on VH1's Make a Band Famous competition. Meanwhile, shows with artists like Chase Rice, Easton Corbin, David Nail, Clare Dunn, and Dylan Scott kept Honey County busy, adding history and heft to the band's sound.

Alexandria Corn

For as long as she can remember, she has been passionate about music. At five, Alexandria Corn started to develop an ear for it - she enjoyed singing and dancing around the kitchen to classic rock with her mother.

In 2013, Alexandria got the opportunity to travel to Nashville to attend the CMA awards. There she met Jillian Farrar (Publisher/Writer). Alexandria and Jillian hit it off immediately and began writing. The alchemy between the two was undeniable.  Together they wrote Alexandria’s newest single, “Say It Again”, along with writer A. Helms.

Now living in Los Angeles, CA, Alexandria is focusing on her music career with plans to relocate to Nashville, TN next year. She is currently recording her new EP with an expected release date in early 2017.
