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.

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.
But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
