The harmony-based trio Lady Antebellum (Lady A) continues to reaffirm the very foundation of their music by focusing on deft songwriting and fresh uses of their talents. Since the band's 2006 inception, Lady A has won the Vocal Group of the Year honor from the CMAs and the ACMs three times in a row and sold more than 11 million albums worldwide. The trio has taken seven trips to No. 1 on the country radio charts, earned five Platinum singles, including their recent "Downtown," and has been awarded seven Grammy Awards, including the all-genre Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Lady A most recently released "Compass" as their new single, off a special edition release of "Golden Deluxe," available in stores now. The trio will kick off their North American headlining Take Me Downtown Tour on January 10. In the end, the mix of their road experiences, songwriting and creative partnership have allowed the magic to remain - because they have kept the focus on the music. Lady A has won a total of seven American Country Awards , making them the most award-winning group at the ACAs.

Since releasing the chart-topping album "Barefoot Blue Jean Night," Jake Owen has emerged as one of country music's leading vocalists. The RCA Nashville project delivered four consecutive No. 1 hit singles, including the multi-week chart-toppers; the double-Platinum title track and Platinum "Alone with You," and Gold-certified hits "The One That Got Away" and "Anywhere with You." Poised to follow the success, Owen's Top 15-and-climbing hit "Days of Gold" marks his fastest-rising single to date. The song is featured on his highly anticipated album "Days of Gold," to be released on Dec. 3. His energetic live show and captivating songs have landed him coveted opening slots with Jason Aldean, Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw and his first headlining tour, CMT on Tour Jake Owen: The Summer Never Ends 2012, which made CMT history for the most sold-out shows in a row for the annual nationwide tour. The Vero Beach, FL, native first captured the national spotlight with his hits "Startin' with Me," "Don't Think I Can't Love You" and "Eight Second Ride." The 2009 ACM Top New Male Vocalist's revival of "Life in a Northern Town," with Sugarland and Little Big Town, in 2008 earned him Grammy and CMA Award nominations.

Kellie Pickler grew up immersed in country music in the small town of Albemarle, NC, with the words of Tammy Wynette, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton shaping her musical footing. At the age of 19, she gained fame as a contestant on the fifth season of AMERICAN IDOL. In 2006, she signed with 19 Recordings/BNA Records and released her debut album, "Small Town Girl," which has gone on to sell more than 800,000 copies worldwide and produce three hit singles: "Red High Heels," "I Wonder" and "Things That Never Cross a Man's Mind." She followed that in 2008 with her self-titled sophomore record, featuring country radio hits "Don't You Know You're Beautiful," "Best Days of Your Life" (co-written with Taylor Swift and her first Top 10), and "Didn't You Know How Much I Loved You." Having established herself as not only a powerful vocalist but also a songwriter, Pickler released her third studio album, "100 Proof," in 2012 to huge critical acclaim. The album was named the No. 1 Country Album of The Year by Rolling Stone and was listed on Best of 2012 lists by The Washington Post, Rhapsody, AOL's The Boot and more. In the spring of 2013, Pickler partnered with dance coach Derek Hough and won the Mirror Ball Trophy on "Dancing with the Stars." Earlier this month, Pickler released her new album, "The Woman I Am," on her new record label, Black River Entertainment. The album contains her current hit single, "Little Bit Gypsy." The album also contains her song "Someone Somewhere Tonight." The video of that song (featuring Pickler and Hough) has been nominated for an American Country Award for Music Video of the Year: Female. Pickler is also an avid supporter of the U.S. military, and will soon embark on her seventh USO tour.

AMERICAN COUNTRY AWARDS is executive-produced by Bob Bain (TEEN CHOICE 2013, "Kids' Choice Awards"). Fletcher Foster, Paul Flattery and Tisha Fein serve as producers. Greg Sills is supervising producer.
