Josh Turner: Whether it’s with his deep, soulful voice, his South Carolina accent or his philosophy on life, Josh Turner has never been one to hurry. But a memorable country song recently convinced him to pick up his pace.The singer-songwriter was months away from scheduled recording sessions when he first heard “Why Don’t We Just Dance,” which became the debut single from his fourth studio album, Haywire. Josh placed the song “on hold” with the music publisher so they wouldn’t allow anyone else to record it. But when another artist expressed interest in the song, the publisher asked Josh to record the song to see if he liked it enough to keep it, and he did.“We felt like we couldn’t lose that one,” Josh says. “It’s a strong song and something that I could have a lot of fun with vocally. I felt it would be a great center point for the record. It is positive and a love song and you can dance to it. Nowadays, that’s a good formula.”

Easton Corbin knew he wanted to be a country singer well before he learned how to play guitar.“One of my earliest memories is from when I was three or four,” he remembers. “I was sitting between my parents in the car and a song came on the radio—it was Mel McDaniel’s ‘Baby’s Got Her Blue Jeans On’. I began using the gearshift as my microphone. The desire has always been there.”Born and raised in rural Gilchrist County, Fla., Easton spent much of his time on his grandparent’s cattle farm after his parents divorced when he was young. “I lived a mile from the Suwannee River,” he says. “I grew up fishing on it and I loved to work on the farm. Every weekend, that’s where I’d be.”

Chris Young: With an ear toward the past and an eye on the future, Chris Young is quickly distinguishing himself as a new comer who honors country music's best traditions while adding a fresh new chapter to the genre's legacy. With his rich, warm baritone and penchant for writing relatable, slice–of–life songs, Young's sophomore project, The Man I Want to Be - featuring his current smash single, "Gettin' You Home" – is an album that showcases a new traditionalist poised to take his place among his musical heroes.One of those heroes, the legendary Willie Nelson, joins Young on the the album for a duet of "Rose in Paradise," the hauntingly beautiful Waylon Jennings classic.

Josh Thompson hit the country music scene with a bang last year with his breakout hit, “Beer on the Table.” The song went on to become a Top 20 hit for the Wisconsin native, and his current single, “Way Out Here” (also the title track of his debut album), is following hot on its heels. Both songs, along with the other eight tracks off WAY OUT HERE, were written or co-written by the singer who began dabbling in songwriting nearly 10 years ago.“As a songwriter, I’m really at the mercy of a great idea. I could sit and write songs all day about a telephone or a piece of dry wall, but at the end of the day, you really need a great idea, a great hook and a great story,” Josh says of the struggles of songwriting. “I think those things don’t come along every day. Of course you’re always ready for them to come along, but trying to find a different way of saying something that people have said for hundreds of years can be tough.”Click here to visit joshthompsonofficial.com
Chuck Wicks: A gifted songwriter and vocalist, Chuck Wicks made a compelling impression and quickly became a fan-favorite with his Top 5 smash, “Stealing Cinderella,” the fastest-rising single by a debut country act in 2007.By the time his first album, Starting Now, was released in January 2008, he had begun a year-long 750,000 fan-packed tour opening for superstar Brad Paisley. Wicks co-wrote all but one of the songs on his debut CD, including his single hits, “All I Ever Wanted” and “Man of the House.”A Delaware native, Chuck was raised on a family farm, where he grew up loving a variety of music – from traditional country to R&B – but his early career aspirations focused on his passion for sports. He attended Florida Southern College to play baseball, but by his senior year, he found that music had overtaken his athletic aspirations.Chuck began a series of trips to Nashville, and early interest from record label RCA Nashville inspired a permanent move to Music City, where Chuck spent several years paying his dues, honing his craft, and learning – earning his place within the city’s songwriting community and ultimately landing a recording contract with RCA.Most recently, Chuck has been on the radio and video airwaves with the sultry groove of “Hold That Thought,” a song that Chuck co-wrote and the first taste of new music from Chuck’s upcoming second album, set for release next year.
