Born into the Bluegrass Brawn of Kentucky, Carly Pearce has never known a moment that country music wasn’t her destined path. At the young age of 11, she began touring with a local band; at 16, she quit high school for a job performing at Dollywood while being homeschooled and learning humility working odd jobs upon moving to Nashville. Now she is defying odds with her No. 1 debut “Every Little Thing,” which steered a chart-topping trifecta on SiriusXM’s The Highway which also includes “If My Name was Whiskey” and “Hide the Wine.” Carly became the highest charting solo female artist since July 2015 with the gold certified track from her acclaimed debut album Every Little Thing. Earning her first ACM Awards Nomination for New Female Vocalist of the Year in April 2018, Carly won CMT Music Awards Breakthrough Video of the Year for “Every Little Thing.”
Hit songs include: “Every Little Thing,” “Hide the Wine”
More than 4,500 shows and counting. More than a million miles behind them and still seeing highway miles click by outside their bus window. Twenty-three albums. More than 50 chart singles. CMA, ACM, and CMT awards on the shelf. To pull a line from one of the band’s enduring hits: “This is the life and times of a travelin’ band.” Always on the move – on the road, on the stage and in their career.
The band’s live shows are legendary. Having been described as “the Rolling Stones of Country Music,” the band bounds onto the stage night after night, delivering its own unique brand of high-energy entertainment.
Lead Singer Mark Miller and his band-mates are more than just music artists. In addition to writing and co-writing many of the band’s hits, Miller has also produced many of the band’s albums. He discovered the multi-platinum contemporary Christian band Casting Crowns and has produced all their records – including winning a Grammy for one of their albums.
Hit songs include: “Some Girls Do,” “Thank God for You,” “The Walk”
David Lee Murphy
David Lee Murphy arrived in Nashville determined to fuse musical influences such as Lynyrd Skynard, The Allman Brothers and Z.Z. Top into his own recording style. When every label in town turned him down, he turned to writing songs for others and playing honky-tonks in the middle of Tennessee. A diverse range of artists from Reba McEntire to Dobie Gray began recording his tunes, which resulted in MCA Nashville President Tony Brown hearing Murphy’s recording of a song called “Just Once” and putting it on the soundtrack of the 1994 rodeo movie 8 Seconds. This led to the recording of Murphy’s debut album, 1995’s Out with a Bang. It yielded the massive hits “Party Crowd” and “Dust on the Bottle” and became a Gold Record.
While performing, Murphy became an in-demand songwriter for such post-millennial country stars as Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean and Blake Shelton. He has earned more than a dozen songwriting awards and his songs have been recorded by superstars Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett, Eric Church, Brad Paisley, Brooks & Dunn, Chris Young and many more.
Hit songs include: “Dust on the Bottle,” “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright,” “Party Crowd”
