After almost 15 years at the top of his format, three-time ACM “Entertainer of the Year” Jason Aldean has seen trends come and go. Aldean’s helped bring a few out of the shadows, making the mainstream’s first contact with hard rock (“Hicktown”), hip-hop (“Dirt Road Anthem”) and R&B (“Burnin’ It Down”). But after all that time, he continues to hold his ground making modern albums with an old-school soul—most recently with his ninth studio album, 9, which debuted at the top spot on Billboard’s Country Albums chart. Notably, all seven of Aldean’s previous studio albums have been certified PLATINUM, while bolstering 15 billion streams and more than 20 million albums sold. Known as a member of Country’s elite headliners, Aldean’s past tours are nearing legendary status as he is one of the first of few acts in the genre to sell-out multiple stadiums including UGA’s Sanford Stadium, Fenway Park and Wrigley Field. Continuing success outside of the music industry, Aldean recently launched his latest collaboration, Wolf Moon Bourbon, an 80 proof bourbon that has been distilled from Midwestern grains and aged for four years offering a finish of caramel, oak and spice.
Our amigo Dustin returns for his seventh year on the beach at Crash My Playa!
Since his debut with his 2012 self-titled, #1 album, and PLATINUM breakout “Cowboys and Angels,” Lynch as, in the worlds of Billboard, “steadily built one of the most consistent recording careers in modern country music.” He has toured with the likes of Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Brad Paisley and Thomas Rhett. With over 2.22 BILLION total career streams, Lynch has earned industry recognition with Billboard Music Awards, iHeartRadio Music Awards, and CMD Music Awards nominations. Lynch’s newfound level of confidence comes through in the driving sound and blazing focus of his latest collection of songs. “My hope for the TULLAHOMA album,” he concludes, “is to show everybody that we know who we are, this is our lane, and we’re going to drive in it for a while.”
“I hear the crowd, I look around, and I can’t find one empty chair. Not bad for a girl going nowhere” sings Ashley Mcbryde on “Girl Goin’ Nowhere,” the seminal title track from her GRAMMY-nominated major label debut LP. They’re words built from experience: over the course of her life, growing up in Arkansas, McBryde’s been finding her own way to fill those seats and sway those hearts since the very first time her teacher told her that her dreams of writing songs in Nashville would never see the light of day. Every time she was brought down, she persevered; trusting her timeless tone and keen, unwavering eye for the truth. It paid off. In April 2017, Eric Church brought her on stage and called her a “whiskey-drinking badass,” confessing that he’s a massive fan. The rest of the world is quickly catching on, too.
Born in Jacksonville, Alabama, Riley Green was raised on the sounds of traditional Country, Bluegrass and Southern Gospel music. He learned the spirit of songwriting and performing at a young age while spending time with his grandfather, Bufford Green, who ran the Golden Saw Music Hall. Riley shared the stage with him and other men of his generation, laying a foundation for the songs he’d craft in the years to come. His full-length debut album DIFFERENT ‘ROUND HERE was released in 2019 via BMLG Records and has produced GOLD-certified No. 1 hit “There Was This Girl” and GOLD-certified single “I Wish Grandpa’s Never Died” – a song People praised “might take him to a whole new stratosphere,” and one he shares co-writing credits posthumously alongside his two grandfathers. Highlighting his Southern roots and relatability, he co-wrote each track offering a perspective Rolling Stone describes as “Drinks-in-the-air Nineties country at an Alabama vs. Auburn tailgate.” Riley was recently named ACM’s New Artist of the Year and has been nominated for Best New Country Artist at the iHeartRadio Music Awards. He was also voted as one of CRS’s 2020 New Faces and was named MusicRow’s Breakout Artist of the Year at their Country Breakout Awards. Additionally, Green was selected as a CMT “Listen Up Artist” and one of MusicRow’s 2019 “Next Big Things”.
For rising, multi-platinum selling, trailblazing Country star Jimmie Allen, a simple phrase sums up his view on life and music: Never give up.
A native of Southern Delaware – the “slower, lower” part of the state, he explains – Allen has carried that mantra with him through good times and bad, whether that meant living in his car or receiving his first ACM nomination for New Male Artist of the Year in 2019, a CMA Awards nomination for New Artist of the Year in 2020 and subsequently winning the ACM Award for New Male Artist of the Year in 2021 – the first Black artist to win that category since its inception, and a win with which he hopes “open[s] some doors for more Black artists to have success in country and more Black artists to feel comfortable enough to do country if that’s what they want to do.”
Creating a sound that fuses modern Country and classic heartland rock with an edgy vocal blend, Wheelhouse Records’ LOCASH is the Country music duo made up of singer-songwriters Chris Lucas and Preston Brust; natives of Baltimore, Maryland, and Kokomo, Indiana, respectively. With two albums and eight charting singles to their credit, LOCASH broke out in 2015 with their gracious GOLD-certified hit, “I Love This Life,” followed by the flirtatious GOLD-certified #1 smash, “I Know Somebody” – their first trip to the top of the Country radio airplay charts – and 2017’s fun-loving romantic anthem “Ring on Every Finger.” All three singles were part of their album, THE FIGHTERS, which was released in the summer of 2016 to Top 15 success. In 2017, they earned their first round of awards show recognition, nominated at the ACM Awards for New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year, the CMT Music Awards for Duo Video of the Year (“I Know Somebody”), and the CMA Awards for Vocal Duo of the Year. The 2019 ACM Duo of the Year nominee released their latest album (and first with their new label BBR Music Group/BMG), Brothers on March 29, 2019. The follow up to their #1 single “One Big Country Song,” “Beers to Catch Up On” is out on Country radio now.
Raised on the country rebels of old, country music’s newest powerhouse Jameson Rodgers currently finds himself basking in the success of two consecutive No. 1 hits, with his Platinum-certified debut “Some Girls” and follow-up smash “Cold Beer Calling My Name,” featuring label mate Luke Combs, making back-to-back runs up the charts. And now, with the release of his debut album Bet You’re from a Small Town, the soft-spoken yet edgy country traditionalist just might find himself landing in superstar territory. An already established singer/songwriter on multi-Platinum-selling hits for Florida Georgia Line (Top 10 single “Talk You Out of It”) and Chris Lane (No. 1 smash “I Don’t Know About You”), Bet You’re From a Small Town is a gritty country music masterpiece effortlessly travels both sonically and lyrically between love songs (“Porch with a View”) and breakup songs (“Girl with a Broken Heart,”) party songs (“Cold Beer Calling my Name”) and songs that tell the story of the deepest of losses (“Good Dogs.”) “All these songs make me feel something,” he admits. “That’s the whole goal of music, isn’t it?” Rodgers is currently headlining his COLD BEER CALLING MY NAME TOUR 2021.
Hailing from the small farming community of Baskin, Louisiana, country music newcomer Lainey Wilson has as much grit in her as she does soul. She moved to Nashville in a bumper-pull camper trailer to pursue a career in music and has been carving her own unique place in the country music landscape ever since, already garnering early praise as “a cautious optimist with just enough scares and pragmatism to write great, universal country songs” (Taste of Country) and “one of those voices who will grab your attention and keep it” (Whiskey Riff). A natural-born storyteller, Wilson has quickly established herself as an in-demand songwriter on Music Row as part of powerhouse publisher Sony/ATV. Following the independent release of her self-titled EP in April 2018, Wilson was named one of CMT’s Next Women of Country for 2019, landed a record deal with BBR Music Group/BMG and spent the first part of the year opening for chart-topping country artist Morgan Wallen during his 2019 If I Know Me tour. Undaunted by the inevitable early mornings and late nights that lie ahead, Wilson has no plans of slowing down as she turns her momentum into a movement.
With the 2018 release of her debut album, Starfire, Smith established herself as one of the brightest rising stars in Nashville; her finely etched writing and soulful voice earned her numerous television appearances and high-profile touring slots. Now, with the follow-up, Supernova, the singer-songwriter who garnered acclaim from Rolling Stone, Billboard, and countless critics has upped the ante, delivering a set of songs that are bigger, bolder, and more powerful sonically and lyrically. Growing up in the small town of Cannon Falls, Minnesota, Smith was drawn to music at a young age. After making three albums before she turned 19, she moved to Nashville, where she became one of the town’s most celebrated songwriters; her compositions were recorded by artists from James Bay to Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton to John Legend and Meghan Trainor (for whom she co-wrote the multi-platinum duet “Like I’m Gonna Lose You”). But attempting to re-launch herself as a singer proved more challenging than she expected.
That journey, and her ultimate triumph, formed the backbone of Starfire. With Supernova, Smith advances the story, grappling with life as a touring artist, a wife, and a mother of two young children. If Starfire chronicled a young artist chasing her dream, then Supernova dives into what happens after that dream starts to come true – the struggles of the road, the pressures felt on family and friendships, and the rewards of lessons learned and hard-fought love that transcends all.
As a young girl growing up in Scotts Hill, Tennessee, Whitney Duncan developed a passion for music early on. Her love for performing at local festivals, churches, and talent shows soon blossomed into a publishing deal with Big Picture and a record deal with capitol Records at the tender age of 17. Finding great success in songwriting, Whitney released a duet with superstar Kenny Rogers, giving way to her career as a recording artist. Her breakout single, “When I Said I Would,” released by industry-giant Warner Brothers, was named iTunes song of the week after being widely downloaded. Since then, Whitney has racked up 20 million plus career streams, working with accomplished producers such as Mark Bright, and current producer Michael Carter. She was named a part of CMT’s prestigious Next Women in 2018 and also found success appearing on the 23rd season of Survivor and the 25th season of The Amazing Race. Whitney looks forward to continuing her career, releasing new music in 2021.
Kendell Marvel wrote and recorded Solid Gold Sounds in a matter of days, but it took a lifetime in country music to get there. The new project is Marvel’s first release for Easy Eye Sound, the Nashville label launched by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys. Rather than dipping into their own catalogs, Marvel and Auerbach co-wrote nine of the album’s 20 songs, rounding out the collection with a lush rendering of the Bee Gees classic, “I’ve Gotta Get a Message to You.” In some ways, Solid Gold Sounds is a throwback to Marvel’s formative years, when distinctive artists like Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and Charlie Rich dominated the radio. Yet the album also reflects Marvel’s life now – as an accomplished songwriter, an incredible singer and a proud father and husband. Listening to it as a whole, there’s a mature perspective that comes through his rumbling vocals – one that reflects nearly 50 years of his own experiences and influences.
We can’t wait to welcome Kendell back to Mexico for another special performance at Crash My Playa.
