Sara Evans Booking Agent

Sara Evans:

She’s had five #1 singles, sold millions of records, won the Academy of Country Music’s Top Female Vocalist Award and claimed a Country Music Association trophy for her signature song, “Born To Fly.” It’s tough to imagine many accomplishments Sara Evans hasn’t already checked off her bucket list.  And yet, with the release of her eighth studio album, Words demonstrates that she’s still willing to leap into the unknown, taking greater control of her career and calling the shots in a way that’s unusual in country music – particularly unusual for a woman in the genre.  Words is the first project on Evans’ own label: Born To Fly Records, appropriately named after that CMA-winning signature song, which celebrated risk and adventure. Much is familiar about Words. Evans’ voice is warm and strong, the songs are authentic and memorable, and the actual words themselves resonate with the realities of everyday life.

Dan + Shay Booking Agent

Dan + Shay :

No one knows the Dan + Shay sound better than they know themselves, so whether it’s a heartfelt ballad like “From the Ground Up,” their first No. 1 “Nothin’ Like You” or their latest offering, off their forthcoming 2018 release, “Tequila,” their career has largely been built on the two of them in the studio working all night on one song after another.  Whether it’s another late night with their acoustics jamming for close friends or on stage for thousands of fans on tour, Dan + Shay enjoy what they’ve been able to create together. Their layered voices – Shay brings a gospel and R&B flavor, while Dan is influenced by the harmonies of Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles – give each of their songs, especially a song like “Obsessed,” a dynamic feel that stretches the boundaries and creates its own unique place the soundscape that is contemporary country music.

Toby Keith Booking Agent

Toby Keith :

The Songwriters Hall of Fame inducted Toby Keith two years ago and the Academy of Country Music gave him the Poet's Award this year – exceedingly high songwriting honors amidst a career chock full of them. And with good reason. The list of writer-artists in any genre who have achieved or exceeded the collective airplay Keith has amassed is quite short. Artistic and commercial achievements aren't the reasons he writes, however. Neither are awards. No, songwriting isn't something Toby Keith does. Songwriting is who he is.

Dierks Bentley Booking Agent

Since then, he’s had 20 country No. 1s – and counting – from nine studio albums, seven of which have reached the top spot on the U.S. country LP charts, and nearly all of which have been certified gold or platinum.  Singer / songwriter / guitarist Bentley’s success might seem understandable, when hearing his note-perfect delivery of classic Music Row songs and seeing his blonde, square-jawed good looks, but it begins to feel a little less likely when considering some of the unpredictable and gutsy choices he’s made.

Tim McGraw Booking Agent

His first album was released by ‘Average Joes Entertainment’, an independent record company that mostly releases the albums of independent artists. Later on, ‘Big Machine Records’ helped him by re-releasing his second album, ‘Halfway to Heaven’. When the album was first released, it failed to reach far and wide, but the re-release helped Brantley to achieve fame as the album became available to a host of listeners. This turned out to be the breakthrough that Brantley was looking for. A couple of songs from the album topped the Hot Country Songs Chart, soon after it was re-released. In 2013, he was honored with the ACM New Male Artist Award for the album. Brantley subsequently released two more country albums that gained critical and commercial success. Two of his albums, ‘Halfway to Heaven’ and ‘Just as I Am’, are certified platinum records.
