Saturday March 12
BROOKE EDEN – Brooke has become one of Country music’s most anticipated new acts and is currently enjoying success with the single, “Daddy’s Money”. The daughter of a carpenter who moonlighted as a drummer in a country band, Brooke adopted the scrappy underdog mentality and stamped it all over her soulful and bluesy brand of country music. A Florida native, Brooke is a confident and commanding vocalist, an accomplished performer and has opened for big names like Alan Jackson and Brooks & Dunn.
HIGH VALLEY – Canadian brothers Brad and Curtis Rempel are High Valley. These two young men are making what the music industry in Nashville has called “singular,” “seminal,” and “a perfect mix of radio, revision, and respect.” But they like to call it “popgrass”! Growing up on a 1,400-acre farm in the far-northern reaches of Alberta, with music, farming and family as the basis of their entertainment, their musical language was formed at a very young age.
DAVID NAIL – Since his 2009 debut Grammy-nominated David Nail has made a career singing about subjects few artists dare touch these days; hits about cheating (“Let It Rain”), breakups (“Red Light”), failed dreams (“Turning Home”) and desire (“Whatever She’s Got”) singing as if from personal experience. His I’m A Fire Tour was named a “Must See” by Rolling Stone Country and his album I’m A Fire landed on “Best Of” lists for Rolling Stone Country and Billboard. Nail’s latest US single, “Night’s On Fire”, borrows from Arcade Fire for a pop-rock-infused story about two lovers enjoying the moonlight.
Sunday March 13
LAUREN ALAINA – Georgia native Lauren Alaina captured America’s hearts when she appeared on Season 10 of American Idol. Recently Lauren released a self-titled five-song EP, the highly-anticipated follow-up to her No. 1 debuting first album Wildflower. Lauren co-wrote every track on the EP including her latest single, “Next Boyfriend,” and the ESPN exclusive promo track, “History,” which was played throughout the network’s extensive college and professional football coverage. In addition to her busy tour schedule, Lauren regularly appears on the Grand Ole Opry and is one of CMT’s “Next Women of Country”.
THE SHIRES – They have swiftly become one of the UK’s biggest breakout successes of 2015. The duo of Ben Earle and Crissie Rhodes played Nashville’s Grand Old Opry, released their debut album ‘Brave’ which subsequently went gold and have had hits such as ‘Nashville Grey Skies’ and ‘State Lines’ on national radio playlists. They have taken the support from industry tastemakers they received early on in their career and built it into radio plays, record sales and legions of fans and have helped change the perception of country music across the UK in the process.
