The Band Perry is fronted by Kimberly Perry and rounded out by her younger brothers Neil and Reid. The band has released several hit singles, including the quadruple-platinum “If I Die Young,” which climbed to No. 1 on Billboard’s Country and AC charts, the platinum “You Lie,” and the Country No. 1 “All Your Life.” They’ve won multiple ACM, CMA, and CMT Music awards.

Country singer and songwriter Jon Pardi was raised in Dixon, California. His first single, “Missin’ You Crazy,” was released in the spring of 2012. In 2015, Pardi began work on his second album, and a track from the project, “Head Over Boots,” became No. 19 on the country singles chart. Pardi’s sophomore album, California Sunrise, was released in June 2016.

After years of working in his home state of California, Gary Allan released his gold-certified debut album, “Used Heart for Sale,” in 1996. Allan’s first three albums went platinum. His fourth studio album, “Alright Guy,” included his first No. 1 country hit, “Man to Man,” which also crossed-over to No. 25 on the pop charts. The album climbed to No. 4 on Billboard’s Country Albums chart and No. 39 on the All-Genre chart.
