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.
"Close Enough" has a funky side, trying to get the singalong going with the opening »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Life's good for Carll, Moorer
Life's been pretty darn good for Hayes Carll. He released a new disc, the sturdy, "What It Is," and he remarried - to fellow singer Allison Moorer.
Carll has enjoyed a two-decade long career as a plainspoken singer, some of it distinctly country, some of it more following in the footsteps of the great Texas singer/songwriters, like Ray... »»»
Concert Review: Evans brings the cheer
What's a country song without drinking? Morgan Evans seems to have gotten the missive loud and clear as a good chunk of his songs incorporate libations into the mix.
And when the Australian-bred singer isn't confronting drinking, he's dealing with matters of the heart, but in keeping with the positive attitude he purveyed, love is most... »»»
