One of the most prolific guitar players in today’s country class, 26-year-old Chase Bryant was raised in Orange Grove, TX (pop. 1,200). Bryant’s grandfather played piano for Roy Orbison and Waylon Jennings. His uncles co-founded the group Ricochet. Conway Twitty, Merle Haggard, Tom Petty, Vince Gill, Bob Wills, Steve Wariner, Bryan Adams and more were early influences as were records by Keith Urban and Brad Paisley.
His guitar-wielding debut single “Take It On Back” hit the Top 10 of the Country Billboard Chart and Bryant’s second consecutive hit “Little Bit of You” rose to #3 on the Country Billboard Chart. Internationally, the single was a Top 20 hit in Canada and earned the #1 spot on Australia’s CMC Countdown.
A musical maverick, Bryant, taught himself to play guitar upside down and backwards at the age of three. Fans have gotten to witness his guitar work across the globe on tours including Tim McGraw’s SHOTGUN RIDER TOUR, Brantley Gilbert’s LET IT RIDE TOUR, Kip Moore’s 2016 WILD ONES TOUR and Brad Paisley’s 2017/2018 WEEKEND WARRIOR TOUR.
Danielle Bradbury is a 23-year-old, multi-faceted artist who stepped into her own lane with sophomore album I Don’t Believe We’ve Met, released in December 2017 on BMLG Records. As the title suggests, Bradbery re-introduced herself after taking time since her debut LP to focus on the writing process and, for the first time, infusing her own story into her songs – penning seven of the album’s 10 tracks. Lead single “Sway” perfectly blended her R&B, soul and country influences, while empowering follow-up anthem “Worth It” led to national TV performances of the emotional tune on NBC’s TODAY and The Voice.
Bradbery recently returned to radio airwaves with “Goodbye Summer,” a fresh take on album cut “Hello Summer” with Thomas Rhett adding a male perspective to the seasonal story of love and heartbreak. The Texas native has worked on fine-tuning her unique sound since getting her start winning Season 4 of NBC’s The Voice and has since garnered multiple ACM nominations as well as being up for CMT Breakthrough Video of the Year and CMT Performance of the Year.
Bradbery recently shared her cover of A Star Is Born hit “Shallow” featuring Parker McCollum, after releasing the critically-acclaimed “Yours Truly: 2018” series featuring her take on Ariana Grande’s “God is a Woman,” Post Malone’s “Psycho” and Kacey Musgraves’ “Slow Burn.” She is currently touring fairs and festivals across the country after kicking off the year on Kane Brown’s Live Forever Tour and making her Australian debut at the CMC Rocks music festival.
