Young has enjoyed hits with "In Case You Didn't Know" and "Mercy." Young is currently on Thomas Rhett's Life Changes Tour 2018 and is set headline a sold-out show Nashville's Ryman Auditorium for the first time on Oct. 10.
Raised in Yuba City, a small farming community in northern California, Rich found his love of music gathered around a Christmas tree alongside family singing holiday classics and Creedence Clearwater Revival before being introduced to the George Strait, Garth Brooks and Alan Jackson. His lead single is "The Difference." The Rhett Akins, Ben Burgess, Devin Dawson and Jacob Durrett-penned song offers a glimpse into his real-life courtship with fiancée actress Sabina Gadecki.
Wammack, a 24-year old native from Muscle Shoals, Ala., mixed country, soul and pop. At 17, she was discovered by a Sony Music Nashville executive while performing at a piano restaurant in Muscle Shoals. Five years later, she received a record deal from Sony Music Nashville. In April, Wammack released her self-titled, four song EP via the RCA Records Nashville imprint. "Damage" is her debut single.

CD reviews for Brett Young
Brett Young had a hit out of the box with "Sleep Without You," as ear candy of a song. His soulful vocals carry the percolating song that seemed designed with airplay in mind. If Young were a band, this is the type of song that Rascal Flatts might cover. In fact, the airplay bent could be said of most of the dozen songs on the Californian's major label debut after five indie releases.

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music
John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia.
