LeAnn Rimes has sold more than 40 million albums, won two Grammy(R) Awards, three Academy of Country Music Awards and 12 Billboard Music Awards. She is the youngest recipient of a Grammy Award, and was also the first country recording artist to win in the Best New Artist category. Rimes has placed 42 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, 13 of which were Top 10 hits, and has scored numerous hit singles in her career, including "Can't Fight the Moonlight" which went No. 1 in 11 countries, and "How Do I Live," which is the second-longest-charting song ever on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Having released more than 10 studio albums, three compilation albums and two greatest hits albums in her illustrious career, her latest album, "Spitfire," debuted at No. 9 on Billboard's Top Country Album chart and No. 4 on iTunes. Rimes co-wrote nine of the album's songs, which also feature guest vocals by Rob Thomas and Allison Krauss (among others).

With his most recent album, "Off The Beaten Path," Justin Moore once again has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and No. 2 on the all-genre chart. The project has produced Moore's fourth No. 1 song, "Point At You." Along with his previous Gold-certified albums -"Justin Moore" and "Outlaws Like Me" - Moore has sold more than five million digital downloads. He recently kicked off his Off The Beaten Path Tour, with special guests Randy Houser and Josh Thompson. He is nominated for two American Country Awards - Artist of the Year: Breakthrough Artist and Single of the Year: Breakthrough Artist ("Til My Last Day). Visit www.moorejustinmusic.com for tour dates and more.

Randy Houser topped the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart for two weeks this summer with his most recent single, the RIAA Platinum-certified "Runnin' Outta Moonlight." This was his second No. 1 single of 2013, following "How Country Feels," the title cut from his latest album, which was released earlier this year. After earning songwriting credits for Trace Adkins, Justin Moore and Chris Young, Houser catapulted onto the scene with his debut album "Anything Goes," which spawned the Top 20 hit "Anything Goes," and the No. 2 smash, "Boots On." Houser co-headlined CMT On Tour '09 with Jamey Johnson, joined Gary Allan on the Get Off On The Pain tour and Willie Nelson on the Country Throwdown Tour. He most recently toured with Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley on the Locked and ReLoaded Tour, and he will hit the road this fall for the Off The Beaten Path Tour with headliner Justin Moore.

Thomas Rhett signed his first publishing deal with EMI while still a student at Lipscomb University in Nashville, and shortly thereafter, signed a record deal with The Valory Music Co. The 23-year-old singer has scored two Top 15 hits - the poignant "Beer With Jesus" and debut single "Something To Do With My Hands" - both of which are on his debut album, "It Goes Like This," out now. The project also features Rhett's multi-week No. 1 single, "It Goes Like This," which has been certified Platinum. With his first-time No. 1 holding the top spot for three weeks on the Billboard Country Singles Chart, the Valdosta, GA, native ties Miranda Lambert for the record set three years ago. As a gifted songwriter, he has penned Florida Georgia Line's two-week No. 1 "Round Here" and two Jason Aldean cuts, including the Top 15 smash "1994." He recently wrapped his opening slot on Aldean's Night Train Tour and was a part of the first-ever Country concert at Fenway Park in Boston. For tour dates and more visit: www.thomasrhett.com.
