Tenpenny, a Nashville native, is best known for his hit "Drunk Me" from his major label debut Telling All My Secrets (Riser House/Columbia Nashville). The album was released Dec. 14 and earned him 2018's best first-week showing for a major label country debut album.
Seaforth is childhood friends Jordan and Thompson, who grew up together in the Sydney, Australia suburb from where they take their name. Their debut single was "Love That," and they put out a four-song EP, "Love That," which they co-produced alongside award-winning producer Dann Huff.

Concert Review: What's in a name? Strings lives up to it
Billy Strings may not be his real name, but the bluegrass performer more than lives up to his adopted moniker.
Bluegrass may not be the first style of music when one thinks of William Apostol's (yup, that's Billy's real name) home state of Michigan, but with more miles on the bus and shows like this outstanding, lengthy, lyrical night... »»»
