Singer-songwriter Kip Moore’s journey is from that of a struggling Nashville musician to a massive country superstar with his mammoth 2012 debut album Up All Night, and an artistic adventurer with 2015’s sonically bold and critically revered second effort, Wild Ones. Moore’s 2017 album, Slowheart, was the culmination of an ever-evolving talent’s process of self-discovery, a warm and honest embrace of his rugged rock roots and a showcase for his innate poetic prowess.
West Coast native and fast-rising country music newcomer Jon Pardi's Gold-certified 2016 album California Sunrise debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, earning him CMA New Artist Of The Year and ACM New Male Vocalist Of The Year. Pardi dominated the top of the country music charts with consecutive No. 1 hits, including "Dirt On My Boots," the Platinum-selling "Head Over Boots" and "Heartache On The Dance Floor.” California Sunrise is the follow-up to 2014’s Write You A Song, which debuted at No. 3 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and yielded the Top 10 Gold-selling song “Up All Night,” plus “What I Can’t Put Down,” “Missin’ You Crazy” and “When I’ve Been Drinkin” (all of which Pardi co-wrote).
