After almost 15 years at the top of his format, the three-time ACM “Entertainer of the Year” has seen trends come and go. Jason Aldean’s helped bring a few out of the shadows, making the mainstream’s first contact with hard rock (“Hicktown”), hip-hop (“Dirt Road Anthem”) and R&B (“Burnin’ It Down”). But after all that time, he continues to hold his ground making modern albums with an old-school soul—most recently with his ninth studio album, 9, which debuted at the top spot on Billboard’s Country Albums chart. Notably, all seven of Aldean’s previous studio albums have been certified PLATINUM, while bolstering 15 billion streams and more than 20 million albums sold. Known as a member of Country's elite headliners, Aldean's past tours are nearing legendary status as he is one of the first of few acts in the genre to sell-out multiple stadiums including UGA’s Sanford Stadium, Fenway Park and Wrigley Field. Continuing success outside of the music industry, Aldean recently launched his latest collaboration, Wolf Moon Bourbon, an 80 proof bourbon that has been distilled from Midwestern grains and aged for four years offering a finish of caramel, oak and spice.
Darius Rucker first achieved multi-Platinum status in the music industry as lead singer and rhythm guitarist of the GRAMMY Award-winning band Hootie & the Blowfish, who have sold more than 25M albums worldwide including their Diamond-certified debut Cracked Rear View, which remains among the Top 10 best-selling studio albums of all time. Since releasing his first Country album in 2008, Rucker has earned a whole new legion of fans with four No. 1 albums on the Billboard Country chart, including RIAA Platinum-certified Learn to Live and True Believers, plus ten No. 1 singles at Country radio. In 2014, Rucker won his third career GRAMMY Award for Best Solo Country Performance with his 9x Platinum version of Old Crow Medicine Show’s “Wagon Wheel,” one of the top five best-selling Country songs of all time. He recently co-hosted the 54th annual CMA Awards and topped the charts at Country radio once again with “Beers And Sunshine” in February. Follow up single “My Masterpiece” is available everywhere now as Rucker puts the finishing touches on a forthcoming album.
As a lifelong philanthropist, Rucker supports the MUSC Children's Hospital in his hometown of Charleston, South Carolina and has also raised millions of dollars for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital through his annual Darius & Friends benefit concert and golf tournament. Rucker has also advocated for over 200 charitable causes supporting public education and junior golf programs in South Carolina through the Hootie & the Blowfish Foundation, and serves as a National Chair for the National Museum of African American Music in Nashville.
From The Judds to the Dixie Chicks and the Carter Family itself, country music’s history is steeped in and rife with family duos, bands and groups. Warner Music Nashville sister duo Walker County adds to that ‘family tradition’ with blood-thick harmonies and solid musicianship. Born and raised in rural Sulphur Springs, Indiana, sisters Ivy Dene (lead vocals) and Sophie Dawn (percussion and harmony) have been performing almost as long as they can remember. Sophie’s hard-driving rhythms and Ivy’s strutting, soulful vocals create a unique blend of country music that was inspired by the sounds of middle America they grew up on. And now, having spent years honing their skills, Walker County is ready to carry on the heritage of country music with their modern-traditional blend. The 2020 CMT Listen Up and Next Women of Country artists started rolling out new music in the fall, showcasing both their range and true-to-themselves style in feisty rocker “Shovel,” wistful reflection “Drag It Out” and upbeat ode to loving relationships “Someone’s Someone.” They’re kicking off 2021 with the bright pop country of “Bits & Pieces,” their major-label debut single, as they prepare for a breakout year.
