Fan-favorite singer, songwriter and producer, Deana Carter, took the country music industry by storm with the release of her multi-platinum international debut, Did I Shave My Legs For This?, featuring her top-selling hit "Strawberry Wine," more than ten years ago. Today, she is gearing up for the release of her new album, Southern Way of Life, after recently celebrating a songwriting chart-topper and ACM/CMA/GRAMMY "Song of the Year" nod in Kenny Chesney's "You & Tequila," co-written with Matraca Berg. Having grown up the daughter of renowned studio guitarist and producer Fred Carter, Jr., Carter's musical style was influenced by the likes of Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, Waylon Jennings and Simon & Garfunkel, with whom her father worked. Often compared to artists like Mary Chapin Carpenter and Sheryl Crow, Carter embraces a country-pop musical style weaved with autobiographical songwriting.

A dignitary in music since the 1960s, Charlie McCoy has played on a multitude of hit records including Elvis Presley, Simon & Garfunkel, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and many more. Widely-known for his unparalleled harmonica skills, he has released more than 24 albums over the past 30 years, and is known all over the world — from Japan and France, to Europe and Denmark. He also served as the musical director of the legendary and beloved syndicated television series, "Hee Haw," and in 2009, it was announced that he would be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Today, McCoy still continues to tour around the globe and perform in studio sessions on some of Nashville's biggest hit albums.

Mountain Faith, hailing from the mountains of Sylva, NC, has been singing and traveling together for 14 years. Possessing a unique style that offers a variety of genres of music, including contemporary bluegrass, classic/modern country, folk, acoustic/contemporary gospel, as well as rhythm and blues --  this band leaves a lasting impression on audiences of all ages. Having frequented Dollywood over the years, they have built up a solid fan base and tour throughout the U.S. and Canada performing at festivals, arenas and auditoriums from state to state.

The accolades continue to pour in as the record-breaking duo closed out 2014 topping four of Billboard’s year-end charts and leading Forbes “30 Under 30” list. 

FGL has skyrocketed to stardom becoming the only artist in history to join Brooks & Dunn in achieving four back-to-back, multi-week #1 singles; breaking the record for longest #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and selling over 21 million tracks worldwide of their 2X PLATINUM debut HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES and ANYTHING GOES.

The project also produced the PLATINUM-certified No. one smash “Get Me Some Of That,” as well as two Top 15 hits, “Beer With Jesus” and “Something To Do With My Hands.” His “high-energy all the way” (El Paso Times) caught the attention of critics out on the road, where he’ll be stepping up as direct support for Florida Georgia Line’s ANYTHING GOES TOUR 2015 this year. The CMA “New Artist of the Year” nominee initially garnered attention as a gifted songwriter with credits including hits by Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean and Lee Brice.

Moving to Nashville in 2009 from Battle Creek, MI, to pursue music, Ballard drew on his working class values, performing every chance he could, honing his guitar and songwriting skills to create a unique blend of blues-infused, country rock. He steadily built a loyal fan base and took the time to grow as an artist and an individual. All of these experiences culminated in selling over 1.5 million tracks to date. Just off the road from his first headlining run – LIGHT ‘EM UP TOUR – as part of the exclusive Live Nation Ones To Watch with Skype, the gifted showman will amp it up even further on Florida Georgia Line's ANYTHING GOES TOUR 2015.
