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.

While he sings with a distinctly enjoyable, Otis Redding-like soulful voice, the arrangements to these songs on his second album feature far more pop than twang.

Chris Stapleton's All-American Road show feels like a singular mission to rid the genre of the bro country scourge that has plagued it for years. He came out with a blazing one-two punch of "Second One To Know" and "Without Your Love" and packed a stadium sized onslaught into a 9,000-seat arena. He never once veered from his... »»»
Concert Review: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones
Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before. It seemed like Jinks has made a lot of musical inroads into the public's consciousness because roughly three quarters of the audience raised their hands to show that this was their first time.
That probably made Jinks feel pretty darn good about how life has been... »»»
