Country music maverick Chase Rice has become one of country music’s most exciting figures since arriving in Nashville, building a loyal fan base across the country through his energetic live shows and gaining the attention of music critics and industry professionals alike with his edgy, eclectic sound. The Tar Heel State native recently released his first taste of new music with “Lonely If You Are,” now available on all digital platforms. The song follows his sophomore album, Lambs & Lions, released with Broken Bow Records in November 2017 and featuring two-week chart-topper “Eyes On You” – Rice’s first No. 1 as an artist and the most-streamed song of Rice’s career with more than 130 million streams and counting – as well as Top 20 lead single “Three Chords & the Truth.” Lambs & Lions followed Ignite the Night, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums and No. 3 on the all-genre chart, producing a pair of Top 5 hits; the Platinum-certified “Ready Set Roll” and “Gonna Wanna Tonight.” After supporting Kenny Chesney’s The Big Revival Tour, Rice consistently sold out 2,500-3,000 seat venues on his headlining JD and Jesus Tour, Everybody We Know Does Tour and Lambs & Lions Tour. He recently served as direct support on the Luke Bryan Farm Tour 2018 and headlined a U.K. run in advance of his highly-anticipated Eyes On You Tour, currently underway.
After making the move from Columbus, GA to Nashville, TN to pursue a career in music at the age of 22, Cale Dodds independently released his first EP titled “Wild & Wreckless” (2014). A year later, Dodds received a cut from A Thousand Horses for his song “Drunk Dial” which reached number 23 on Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart. Shortly after this achievement, in 2016, Dodds released his second project, “People Watching - EP” and was signed to Warner Music Nashville to continue his rise as an artist and songwriter. Since then, Dodds has released three “doubles” -- two sided singles -- with the third including “Take You Back,” his debut radio single. Prior to hitting the airwaves, Dodds had already received critical acclaim from some of the top media outlets. Rolling Stone named Cale Dodds one of their November 2017 "New Country Artists You Need To Know," while CMT Listen Up revealed him as one of their "18 for 2018" class members -- a year-long campaign that spotlights "country music's most promising newcomers." Today, Dodds has over 13 million on-demand streams in the US.

Hunter Phelps was born and raised in Niceville, Florida, where he was introduced to songwriting at a young age by his father, who owned a small recording studio. When he wasn’t out hunting or fishing the bayous and bays of the Florida panhandle, he spent his days teaching himself to play the guitar and working at a local marina.
After high school, Hunter attended the University of Florida in Gainesville, where he began writing songs. He joined a band, started playing tailgate parties and bars around town, and quickly developed a loyal following.
Early in his career, he shared the stage with major label acts like Jason Aldean, Blake Shelton, Gary Allen, Keith Anderson and Michael Ray. Hunter moved to Nashville in 2012, before ever having visited the town and without really knowing how to break in to Music City’s circles. Armed with his guitar, he honed his craft in the honky-tonks of Lower Broadway and sharpened his songwriting skills in the writers’ rooms of Music Row.
In 2014, shortly after his self-released debut EP came out, Hunter signed a joint publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music and hit songwriter Ashley Gorley’s Tape Room Music, where his recent cuts include Florida Georgia Line’s “Wish You Were On It,” recorded for their upcoming album, Dig Your Roots. Hunter is currently writing and recording for his debut full-length album release.
