About Chancey Williams
Rocky Mountain CMA Entertainer of the Year and Wyoming native Chancey Williams and his “Younger Brothers Band,” have relentlessly toured the western United States, developing a rabid fan base not seen from the cowboy state since Chris LeDoux. In fact, Williams and LeDoux are the only two people to ride in the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo (touted “Daddy of ‘Em All”) and also play its main stage as a major entertainer. The former saddle bronc rider and the band have shared the stage with dozens of artists, including Lady Antebellum, Old Dominion, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Brantley Gilbert, Gary Allan and Travis Tritt, bringing fans a rowdy, raucous, unapologetic, memorable stage show. The band’s latest album, Rodeo Cold Beer, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Mountain Heatseekers Chart, No. 5 on the Billboard West North Central Heatseakers Chart, and No. 7 on the iTunes Country Albums Chart. Rodeo Cold Beer is the commercial follow-up to the Billboard Heatseekers Charting album, Echo.
About Chevel Shepherd
Season 15 winner of NBC’s “The Voice” Chevel Shepherd continues to impress audiences with her powerful voice despite being just 17 years old and petite in stature. Raised on country music and the outdoors – often doing crafts, feeding the animals and fixing up cars with her dad – Shepherd was 8 when she started singing on the radio around Florida, Colorado and New Mexico. Every Friday morning her dad and mom would drive her to the local radio station before school and she would sing live. Her winning season on the hit vocal competition, coached by Kelly Clarkson, has catapulted her to accomplishing lifelong dream opportunities including singing on-stage at the Grand Ole Opry, working on her debut album alongside Clarkson and touring nationwide.
About Casey Barnes
The Gold Coast-based Barnes had a solid start to 2018 when his current album The Good Life debuted at #1 on the iTunes Country Album Chart and peaked at #2 on the Aria County Album Chart. Radio has embraced a number of cuts from the album including The Way We Ride, Be Mine, and his current single, Better Days. Lead single Ain’t Coming Home enjoyed consecutive weeks at #1 on the Country Tracks Top 40 chart.
The Good Life has helped Casey to grow his audience to over 134,000 listeners per month across streaming services alone. His recordings have generated 4.37 million streams with over 40,000 fans joining in online to tell the likeable artist that they are ready for whatever he’s got next in store for them.
About Chase Bryant
One of the most prolific guitar players in today’s country class, 26-year-old Chase Bryant was raised in Orange Grove, Texas (pop. 1,200). Bryant’s grandfather played piano for Roy Orbison and Waylon Jennings and his uncles co- founded the group Ricochet. Conway Twitty, Merle Haggard, Tom Petty, Vince Gill, Bob Wills, Steve Wariner, Bryan Adams and more were early influences, as were records by Keith Urban and Brad Paisley. His guitar-wielding debut single “Take It On Back” hit the Top 10 of the Country Billboard Chart and Bryant’s second consecutive hit “Little Bit of You” rose to #3 on the Country Billboard Chart. Internationally, the single was a Top 20 hit in Canada and earned the #1 spot on Australia’s CMC Countdown.
A musical maverick, Bryant taught himself to play guitar upside down and backwards at the age of 3. Fans have witnessed his guitar work across the globe on tours including Tim McGraw’s SHOTGUN RIDER TOUR, Brantley Gilbert’s LET IT RIDE TOUR, Kip Moore’s 2016 WILD ONES TOUR and Brad Paisley’s 2017/2018 WEEKEND WARRIOR TOUR. After finding inspiration in his roots, Bryant is excited to share new music later in 2019. For more information visit: www.chasebryant.com
