Neal McCoy has released fifteen studio albums on various labels, and has released 34 singles to country radio.In 1993, Neal McCoy broke through with the back-to-back number 1 singles No Doubt About It and Wink from his platinum-certified album No Doubt About It. His commercial success continued into the late 1990s with two more platinum albums and a gold album, as well as six more Top Ten hits. A seventh Top Ten hit, the number 10 Billy’s Got His Beer Goggles On, came in 2005 from his self-released That’s Life.
Ten years after the release of his first album, music listeners likely think they have a good idea about who Lee Brice is, based on his eight #1 singles and his seven CMA Award nominations.
He is, one might argue, a sensitive country roughneck, the guy who embraces the power of long-lasting relationships in “Love Like Crazy,” “A Woman Like You” and “I Don’t Dance.” He’s the guy who makes his audiences cry every time he memorializes people who sacrificed their lives on our behalf in “I Drive Your Truck.”

Adam Doleac, dubbed "the hero country needs" by Popdust, has staked his claim as one to watch in Nashville. Recently No.1 on Sirius XM's Hot 30 Countdown with his single "Famous" - a successful follow-up to previous release "Whiskey's Fine" reaching No. 3 on the countdown. Doleac's music was described by Rolling Stone as "anchored not only in the trends of Top 40 radio, but also the blue-collar grit of Bob Seger and the bluesy influence of his Mississippi hometown."
Sitting across from country singer/songwriter Niko Moon, the words "GOOD TIME" are inescapable, peeking through the threads above his knees. "Good Time" is a track on his forthcoming genre-testing debut EP, a moment he wanted to benchmark with tattoos: "GOOD" on his right leg, "TIME" on his left.
"I always wear holy jeans," Moon explains, "and I’m starting to run out of real estate."
"GOOD TIME" deserved permanent ink, since the phrase is more than just an album title. It’s also a way of life for Moon, an adventurous artist, writer and musician with an enduring optimism and a flair for challenging boundaries.

It’s no surprise that along with his dad, Walker cites his two main musical influences as Randy Travis and Luke Bryan.
