Maddie + Tae
Award-winning duo Maddie & Tae are drawing praise for their No. 1 debuting The Way It Feels album release with Rolling Stone saying the new music is “anchored around their stellar vocal pairings and some of the tightest harmonies on Music Row.” Together as longtime friends and music collaborators, Maddie Font and Taylor Kerr co-wrote 14 of the album’s 15 tracks including the Platinum-certified No. 1 country radio hit, “Die From A Broken Heart,” which Esquire calls “their finest moment yet.” The pair also co-wrote two brand new holiday songs to join a collection of classics for their first ever holiday project- We Need Christmas.
Maddie & Tae first broke out in 2013 with their brilliant counter to bro-country, the Platinum-selling smash, “Girl In A Country Song,” which took Country radio by storm, skyrocketing to the top of the charts and quickly going PLATINUM. The duo became only the third female duo in 70 years to top the Country Airplay charts, also earning trophies from the Country Music Academy and Radio Disney Music Awards along with multiple ACM, CMA and CMT Award nominations. Maddie & Tae have received widespread praise from Associated Press, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, NPR, The Tennessean, The Washington Post, Glamour and others. The celebrated duo has toured with country music’s hottest stars including Carrie Underwood, Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley and more. For additional information, visit www.maddieandtae.com
Authentic and unapologetic, Tyler Farr records songs he would listen to in his truck – windows down, sound up. It just so happens country music fans want to hear the same songs.
Without pandering or compromise, Farr’s powerhouse vocals, real-guy relatability, and willingness to mine emotional themes and personal imperfection resonates with people searching to find themselves in the music that underscores their daily routines and future dreams.
With three No. 1 songs (“Redneck Crazy,” “Whiskey in My Water,” and “A Guy Walks Into a Bar”) and a growing string of hits, they found it in Farr. And like a weathered truck with rusty tail pipes, it can get a little loud and gritty.
For his latest project, the Missouri native turned to likeminded mentor Jason Aldean, who signed Farr to his label Night Train Records in partnership with BBR Music Group. As an energetic performer who achieved superstar success cultivating fans from the barstool up, Aldean brings a unique point of view as Farr’s producer along with Kurt Allison and Tully Kennedy (Aldean’s guitarist and bassist, respectively). And Farr clearly breathes easier with his friend and former wedding groomsman in the studio. It’s a creative partnership road tested and forged by truly knowing someone at their core.
Nearly three years after the chart-topping success of his self-titled, fourth studio album, country superstar Brett Eldredge proves you can go home again with his latest album Sunday Drive. Joined by GRAMMY-winning producers Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk, he holed up in Chicago’s intimate Shirk Studios, where the album came to life. As a mental health advocate, Eldredge pulls from a personal place with the current single “Good Day,” which brings the message of keeping a healthy mindset. “Good Day” follows the wistful, piano-driven lead single “Gabrielle,” which made its TV debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and has been called “a breath of fresh air” by Rolling Stone. Having added a seventh country radio No. 1 to his name with “Love Someone,” the critically acclaimed entertainer filled arenas on his first ever sold-out headlining The Long Way tour, which included performances of his Gold and Platinum-certified singles spanning four albums. His highly celebrated Christmas album Glow debuted at No. 2 on the country charts and featured the Billboard Adult Contemporary and Holiday Music Chart-topping duet “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” with Meghan Trainor. In 2016, the album inspired a single live holiday show in Nashville, which has now grown into the annual Glow LIVE holiday tour, hitting major cities across the country. He continues to bring holiday cheer with his new duet “Under The Mistletoe” with Kelly Clarkson and “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” (Latin Version) featuring Sofia Reyes, both available everywhere now.
