About the Artists


A repeat performer at the Coors Light Birds Nest (2014), Owen released his debut studio album “Startin’ with Me” in 2006 which produced three singles, all of which reached Top-20 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. His 2009 single “Eight Second Ride” peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot Country chart. Owen achieved his first number one hit on the country charts with the title track to his third studio album, “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” – a certified Gold album.  Owen was awarded the ACM Top New Male Vocalist in 2009, and the 2012 American Country Awards Breakthrough Artist of the Year. 



Rice’s first studio album “Friday Nights & Sunday Mornings” was released in 2010 and includes the first song he ever wrote/recorded, “Larger Than Life”, a song about the passing of his father. In 2011 he released “Country as Me”, a 6-track EP featuring his single “Buzz Back“. He has received airplay as a “Highway Find” on satellite radio channel The Highway (Sirius XM). In 2012 his “Dirt Road Communion” debuted at No. 48 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and was the No. 6 download on iTunes for the week. He co-wrote Florida Georgia Line‘s “Cruise“, which topped the Billboard Hot Country Songs. In 2013 he released “Ready Set Roll”, a 6-song EP that included the title track that peaked at No. 1 on the iTunes Country album chart. 


From the moment Toby’s debut single “Should’ve Been A Cowboy” shot up the charts to become his first No. 1, the engine driving everything else has been the music. He writes it. He arranges and produces it. And he releases it on his own record label, Show Dog Nashville. At the core is his songwriting, as recognized in his 2015 induction into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame in New York City. The Nashville Songwriters Association International named him Songwriter/Artist of the Decade and he is a three-time BMI Country Songwriter/Artist of the Year. His songs have received more than 87 million BMI performances on commercial radio stations worldwide. Keith’s albums have sold more than 40 million copies. Toby’s most rewarding experiences, however, have come from giving back locally, nationally and abroad. His golf classics fund the Toby Keith Foundation and OK Kids Korral, a cost-free home for families of children dealing with critical illnesses.  


Composed of siblings Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry, the group signed to Republic Nashville in August 2009 and released their self-titled debut album with the hit song “If I Die Young,” which reached number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs and Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks charts and has been certified quadruple platinum. Their second album “Pioneer” was released in 2013 and produced additional number one singles – “Better Dig Two” and “Done” – which also won Country Music Television’s 2014 award for group video of the year. Additionally, they took home the 2015 GRAMMY Award for best country duo/group performance for “Gentle on My Mind.
