Eric Church: Eric Church is the latest country outlaw to hit it big in Nashville. He was named the Academy of Country Music's Top New Vocalist at the awards ceremony held on April 3, 2011 where he also performed his hit, "Smoke a Little Smoke." Now you can catch this rising rebel at a venue near you. The Eric Church concert schedule has been announced and he is slated to perform with country bad boys, Jason Aldean and Toby Keith, at various dates throughout North America this spring and summer 2011.

This North Carolina native heard the calling to country music early on and by high school he was playing gigs at local honky-tonks. He continued playing at local bars near his alma mater, Appalachian State University, where he graduated with a marketing degree. Church put his dreams aside for a second, deciding to get engaged and start a corporate job. The call to country proved too strong, and Church put Corporate America and his fiancee aside, opting instead to move to Nashville. His career quickly took off, first in the world of music publishing when he was signed to Sony/ATV Music Publishing. He penned a major hit with "The World Needs a Drink," which Terri Clark recorded and charted in 2004. Not long after, Church signed with Capitol Nashville and released his debut disc "Sinners Like Me" in 2006.

His first single, "How 'Bout You," was a rough and tough country anthem that hit #14 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs in 2006. Church wrote or co-wrote every track on the album and even persuaded country legend, Merle Haggard, to do a track with him. The album yielded two more top twenty country singles and peaked at #29 on the Billboard 200, garnering him attention in the crowded Nashville scene. In support of the album, the Eric Church concert schedule included opening stints for the Brad Paisley and Rascal Flatts national tours.

He was quick to produce a sophomore set, releasing "Carolina" in 2008. The lead-off single "Love Your Love the Most," peaked at #10 on the Hot Country Songs chart and was certified gold. Church blended outlaw back into country with songs like "Smoke a Little Smoke," and "Young and Wild," and has established himself as one of country's edgiest and most aggressive singer-songwriters. His success has not just been commercial, he was lauded with the ACM award for Top New Vocalist and narrowly lost out to the Band Perry for the ACM Top New Artist award at the April, 2011 ceremony. The prolific artist is already back in the studio crafting his untitled third release, whose lead single "Homeboy," is racing up the charts.

Church's performance at the 2011 ACM awards ensured fans that he knows how to rock the rodeo. Make sure you catch this cowboy rocker when he visits your area. Eric Church tour dates are booked across the country and his concert schedule includes opening stints for Jason Aldean and Toby Keith.

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.

Justin Moore: Justin Moore combines southern rock and backwoods lyrics to satisfy country fans from the boondocks to the big city.

The Poyen, Arkansas native got his start in Nashville fresh out of high school. Moore joined his uncle in a Southern rock band and moved with the group to the Country Music capital. After years of concert performances and hard work, Moore was signed to a solo deal with the Valory Music Group. In 2008, Moore released his debut single, "Back That Thing Up", which peaked in the Top 40 of country radio. Moore expanded his popularity through social networking and constant touring while crafting his debut album. He released a digital EP, The "You Asked For IT" EP, before releasing his self-titled debut which was a top ten hit for the aspiring country star. The lead-off single, "Small Town USA", became a #1 country hit for the country rocker in 2010. The album's second single, "Backwoods", was another top ten single from the album.

Justin Moore tour dates were booked periodically in support of his debut album and he headed back to the studio to record his sophomore album. As an homage to the Willie Nelsons and Merle Haggards that preceded, Moore titled his second disc, Outlaws Like Me, which hit stores in June, 2011.
