Gilbert hails from Jefferson, Georgia and cites his southern roots as the basis for his lyrics. It wasn't until a near fatal car accident in which his truck flipped over several times on the highway that Gilbert realized that life is short and precious. Following a lengthy recovery, he then focused his energies towards his passion and embarked on a full-time career in music. He was picked up for an indie record deal in 2005 and was supposed to release his debut album, A Modern Day Prodigal Son, but he was dropped from the line-up before the album hit stores. Brantley Gilbert toured constantly, and performed as many concerts as venues would have him in order to secure another deal.

Years of constant touring earned Gilbert a record contract with Average Joe's Entertainment who released his debut album in 2009. Although, no singles were released, the album did appear on the Billboard Country Albums chart in 2009 and garnered him attention in and around Nashville. Gilbert was noticed by Jason Aldean who re-recorded Gilbert's "My Kinda Party" for his 2010 album of the same name. The single became a #2 hit for Aldean and legitimated Gilbert as a songwriter. Aldean also recorded the Gilbert penned track, "Dirt Road Anthem", which serves as his current single and is climbing up the Billboard country charts. Brantley Gilbert tour dates were vigorously scheduled throughout the Southeast and he was soon picked up to a major deal with the Valory Music Group.

Gilbert scored his first charting single with "Country Must Be Country Wide", in 2011. The single is currently rising up the country charts and his sophomore album, Halfway to Heaven, has been in stores since 2010. The aspiring country star has been on the road touring for the better part of 2010-11 to promote his records. In addition to individual Brantley Gilbert tour dates, the country rocker has signed on to Willie Nelson's Country Throwdown Tour, which is playing fairgrounds and festivals throughout Summer, 2011.

Tyler Farr: Born and raised in the small town of Garden City, Missouri, Tyler grew up hunting and fishing, playing football and baseball, and of course, singing. At the age of 16 he had the opportunity of going on the road with country music legend, George Jones. That was all it took for him to realize that's what he wanted to do. With the help of a friend and hunting buddy, Rhett Akins, Tyler began to move forward in the industry. For the past year Tyler has been writing for Sony BMG's publishing company "Monument" and working with Jim Catino. He continues to write music on a weekly basis and get in his deer stand when he can find the time. For the following year Tyler will be on the road opening and playing for Colt Ford. Look for his upcoming songs on I-Tunes and playing around a hometown near you!--------- " A big thanks goes to Colt Ford for giving me this great opportunity, my fans and everyone supporting me. Without you it would be much harder. Another thanks goes to God for believing in me when no one else did and standing by my side both day and night through thick and thin. I am grateful for everything You have given me. And lastly, I want to thank my family for loving and supporting me all these years. Thank you and God Bless." -------Tyler Farr-------

Kip Moore: Singer-songwriter Kip Moore combines a raw and rustic voice with compelling lyrics of honesty to create a unique sound that’s simultaneously hypnotic and edgy. His voice is weathered by life’s detours and disappointments and strengthened by his dreams and determination. His music is infused with relentless intensity, both of passion and frustration.

The boy who grew up daydreaming about life outside of the small town of Tifton, Ga., became a man who has been continually inspired by Bruce Springsteen and Kris Kristofferson to paint vivid portraits with his lyrics.

His music powerfully captures some of the contradictions that he grapples with personally. Although he’s from a large family and enjoys musical collaborations and performing onstage, he’s an introvert who is often more comfortable being alone. Despite its edge, his music remains desperately optimistic.

During high school, he secretly began playing his brother’s guitar because he was intimidated by the talent of his mother and older brother. “I would play when nobody was around, just figuring out stuff, watching his hands and trying to do the same thing.”

Kip moved to Hawaii on a whim with just a backpack, a surfboard and a friend. They slept on an airport bench the first night and then lucked into a hut that was $50 a month. They would walk or hitchhike the mile to the beach daily. After six months of this tropical paradise, Kip thought he had found his permanent home until his friend encouraged him to pursue songwriting as a living.

He drove to Nashville on Jan. 1, 2004 in an old black Nissan truck that contained one bag and his guitar. He immersed himself in the songwriting community, observing songwriters’ rounds for two years and honing his craft before gaining the confidence to join in. After four years of performing locally, he caught the attention of Creative Artist Agency’s Mark Dennis, who called Universal Music Group Nashville’s Joe Fisher. Not only did Joe’s encounter lead to his record deal with MCA Nashville, but it also brought about his introduction to songwriter Brett James, who produced Kip’s debut album.

He also found important relationships with songwriters Dan Couch, Scott Steppakoff, Westin Davis and Kiefer Thompson, two of whom didn’t have publishing deals when he began writing with them.

And different his debut project is, as evidenced by the album’s first single, “Mary Was the Marrying Kind,” the story of the one who got away. The dreamy and spell-binding song is the true story of one of Kip’s friends, who returned to his hometown after about six years and saw the once tall, lanky girl who had since come into her own and become a model.
