ABOUT ELI YOUNG BAND: Somewhere in the midst of 10,000 towns, along a lonely highway between packing clubs in their native Texas years ago and more recently performing stadiums on one of country music’s hottest tours, the Eli Young Band became more than a band. They became a brotherhood. Camaraderie and creativity fused into an intoxicating cocktail that has propelled the talented foursome to the vanguard of contemporary country music. With three No. 1 hits under their belt as well as a Grammy nomination and an Academy of Country Music Award for Song of the Year for their hit “Crazy Girl,” the Eli Young Band approached their second Republic Nashville album, 10,000 Towns, with a sense of confidence and purpose. “We were genuinely excited about making this new record,” says bassist Jon Jones. “People talk about the sophomore record being really tough to make and in a lot of ways this felt like our sophomore record even though it’s technically our fifth record as a band.”
ABOUT GREEN RIVER ORDINANCE: At the core of Fifteen, the third studio album from Green River Ordinance, is a simple message: hold fast to the things that are true. On album opener “Keep Your Cool,” over slow, smoky guitars and a clear, bright church organ they advise, “Get your head out the clouds/ feet on the ground/ pride don’t mean you gotta be too proud.” If there’s a single lyric that sums up the way Green River Ordinance have conducted themselves over the course of the last decade and a half, that’s it — no matter what’s going on around you, remember to stay grounded and focus on the things that are important. “We’re at our best when we’re challenging ourselves about why we’re doing what we do,” explains frontman Josh Jenkins. “The purpose can’t be to sell a bunch of records — it has to be about something more.”
ABOUT LANCO: Country-rock band LANCO -- which stands for Lancaster & Company -- were formed in 2013 by namesake and frontman Brandon Lancaster. Hailing from Georgia, Tennessee, and Kentucky, the quintet was rounded out by drummer Tripp Howell, guitarist Eric Steedly, keyboardist Jared Hampton, and bassist Chandler Baldwin. Crafting feel-good country anthems tinged with classic rock and blues edges, LANCO got their start after a chance meeting between Lancaster and producer Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Little Big Town) at a Keith Urban concert. Joyce signed LANCO to his publishing company and produced their eponymous debut EP. The band signed with Sony Music Nashville imprint Arista Nashville in late 2015. Their second EP, Extended Play, was released in early 2016. It contained three of the same songs as their debut, exchanging "High" for newer track and lead single "Long Live Tonight," a pop-fused country song with a Kings of Leon undercurrent. Their song "American Love Story" was also featured as the theme for the Netflix series The Ranch.
ABOUT CHARLOTTE LEIGH: Up-and-coming vocalist Charlotte Leigh (June 12, 1997 in Little Rock, Ark.) is dedicated to composing and performing the hottest pop music with a country attitude and southern, soulful style. This gift to the music world began performing in local talent shows at the age of 11 and has proven she has mega-star potential. She released her debut single and video “Not Another Love Song” in the fall of 2014. Her first EP, “Take a Chance,” has a special, deeply personal meaning to her. “It can be hard to put yourself out there,” she says, “but to get to where I am I definitely just had to take a chance.” The EP became an instant hit both in the local and larger markets including Atlanta and Los Angeles. In sixth grade, Charlotte performed a duet with country sensation Kelly Pickler. And in 2014, Charlotte performed the National Anthem at the SEC basketball tournament. She co-wrote her smash single “Little Rock” with Christian “Davis” Stalnecker. “It is my anthem,” she says, “It’s just about how my life has been and my family and my friends. It really means a lot to me.” Her musical style is outlined in the song’s chorus: “In Little Rock, We mix a little Country with a little Pop.” The song she dedicated to her home town will forever remain close to heart but will also propel her to the next level. She performed “Little Rock” on the radio at 103.7 The Buzz, on television at THV 11 and rang in 2015 with the jam on KATV 7. Her deep sultry voice, fresh alluring look, and phenomenal upbeat performances earned her an invitation to play at Riverfest 2015, opening for Sam Hunt, a star quickly climbing the country-pop charts.
