BRAD PAISLEY
Brad Paisley is a walking testament to modern-day country’s possibilities. His albums are cornucopias of words and music that provide alternately poignant and hilarious journeys across the human landscape. A triple threat recognized as one of the finest singers, songwriters, and guitar slingers of his generation, he brings a wide spectrum of subjects and styles to records as diverse and accomplished as anything being done today, and he manages it all with true wit and distinctive style.

DIERKS BENTLEY
Not so many years ago, he was singing for tips in Second Avenue bars and soaking up country music history at his day job working in the video tape library of the late, great Nashville Network. Today he's among the most successful and relevant country singers in the business. They say Nashville doesn't work like this anymore - that talented strivers with no connections don't stand a chance. But Dierks Bentley proved that Music City's engine still runs and that as a place for education, inspiration and validation, it has no parallel. Critics find him credible. Fans pack his shows. There are precious few new artists recording hits today about whom that can be said.

JIMMY WAYNE
You can tell a lot about a person by the things you find on their refrigerator door. Inside Jimmy Wayne’s comfortable Nashville home, you’ll find letters from people telling him just how much his songs have touched them, how HIS story is THEIR story too.  Character, creativity and an unbridled passion for life infuse Jimmy Wayne’s music and reverberate through every track on Do You Believe Me Now, his debut on The Valory Music Co. “It’s definitely a change,” Jimmy says of his new effort. “The record that I put together only has two ballads on it and that’s it. Everything else is up-tempo. I spent three years trying to find these songs that just really set me apart.”

SARAH BUXTON
Sarah Buxton grew up in Lawrence, Kan., and became actively involved in music as a child by learning piano, playing flute and joining a children's choir. She sang Patty Loveless' "Blame It on Your Heart" at a talent show as a junior in high school. As she learned more about music, she became interested in songwriters and began writing poetry. After graduation, she met one of her musical idols, Stevie Nicks, who encouraged her to pursue music, which meant a move to Nashville. Keith Urban cut one of her songs, "Stupid Boy," for his 2006 album, Love, Pain & the Whole Crazy Thing.

ZONA JONES
Over the years, Zona has developed loyal fans and friends who have supported him throughout his career. Zona's efforts have not gone unnoticed. Most recently, Zona signed with Tracy Lawrence's Rocky Comfort Records. Zona is ready to expand his already developed fan base and spread his brand of music across the country. "Tracy and I have been friends for several years, and I have been a huge fan of his music since the Sticks & Stones days" stated Zona. "Working with T.L. to create the best music "we" can has been a lot of fun.and I think we are just getting started." With his growing fan base and proven track record, Zona can rest easy knowing Rocky Comfort Records and his own Texas Legacy will propel him to new heights.

PETER BRANDON
In 2003, Peter Brandon made his first trip to Nashville armed with a backpack full of homemade demo CD's and a dream. Little did he know then that he would now be living out his dream of being a Country Music Recording Artist. Brandon has just released his third studio album "For Anything", and penned 9 of the 10 songs for the record. The lone cover, a countryfied version of Ozzy Osbourne's "Crazy Train", is the first cover Brandon has recorded on any of his albums. The first single, "In The Name of Freedom", premiered Fourth of July weekend exclusively on LA's 105.1 Go Country and has received a great response both on air and live.
