2017 Acts


With all the chest-thumping going on in Nashville today, where bluster and swagger have replaced heart and soul, you half expect some of country music's male stars to be sporting bruises. This is what makes Midland, a trio of friends, based in Dripping Springs, Texas, so undeniably refreshing. Made up of singer Mark Wystrach, lead guitarist Jess Carson, and bass player Cameron Duddy, Midland is the embodiment of Seventies California country, all smooth Eagles harmonies and heart-on-your-sleeve lyrics. Their songs are intoxicating country sung with the twang of George Strait. And it's impossible to resist.

Kevin Fowler

"We're coming to a honky tonk near you,
A little hardcore troubadour hillbilly blues
Bringing country back, a little old a little new,
We're coming to a honkey tonk near you"

The title song off the new album by independent veteran country artist Kevin Fowler pretty well sums up his sound, approach, and endless work ethic. Steeped in the old-school charm of classic country music, amped up with a modern energy all his own, and steadily touring from one packed house of honky-tonk diehards to another, Kevin Fowler makes music on his own terms for the thousands and thousands of loyal fans he's earned down through the years.

Michael Ray

Michael Ray, is an American country music singer and songwriter. He is signed to Warner Music Nashville, for which he released his debut single, "Kiss You in the Morning". The song has reached No. 1 on Country Airplay. Before this single's release, Ray was mentored by John Rich of Big & Rich on the singing competition The Next: Fame Is at Your Doorstep, which he won. He and Rich co-wrote Big & Rich's 2015 single, "Run Away with You". Michael Ray's other hit singles include "Real Men Love Jesus" and "Think a Little Less".

Frankie Ballard

When Frankie Ballard was growing up in Battle Creek, Michigan, his father played him one classic album over and over again: Marty Robbin's Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs, featuring Robbin's signature hit "El Paso". Now Ballard, a quick-draw guitarist and rough-hewn singer, has cut his own metaphorical gunfighter album, decamping from Nashville to a gritty El Paso studio to record the follow-up to his 2014 breakout Sunshine & Whiskey.
