Armed with an arena-sized voice Dallas Smith is one of the most successful Country singers from north of the border. The Vancouver, British Columbia native is the only Canadian Country Artist to have all of his 12 charted singles peak in the Top Ten including the multi-week #1 hit "Wastin' Gas."

If you love traditional country music, James Wesley is an artist that demands your attention. Influenced by such artists as Marty Robbins and Merle Haggard, the Broken Bow recording artist struck a chord with fans via his debut single "Jackson Hole," and has landed on many "Ones to Watch" lists because of such follow-up singles as "Real," "Didn't I" and "Thank A Farmer." His newest single is called "Hooked Up," recorded in association with his sponsor, Calcutta Fishing.

Named to several 2016 "Artists To Watch" lists, Texas native Olivia Lane brings a youthful and vibrant approach to her music. A fan of many styles of music, Lane says she enjoys everything from Frank Sinatra to Katy Perry. That versatility shows up in her music. Her latest single, "Make My Own Sunshine," is beginning to make an impact at radio stations across the United States, and she has shared the stage with such acts as Frankie Ballard and the incomparable Wynonna.

Consisting of mother Kate and daughters Lindsay and Emily Anderton, the trio Lucy Angel made waves as they emerged onto the Country scene with debut single "Crazy Too." Their self-titled album made its way to Walmart and Target shelves nationwide alongside the AXS TV premiere of their 13-episode docu-series, DISCOVERING LUCY ANGEL. No strangers to the road, the trio visited over 100 radio stations in the U.S. while "Crazy Too" soared up the Billboard/Mediabase chart and was named One of Tomorrows Hits by Billboard. The upbeat and lighthearted acclaimed single led them to headline shows coast to coast as well as open for artists including Jake Owen, Chris Young, Dustin Lynch, Kip Moore, Craig Campbell, Chris Janson, Big & Rich, Lauren Alaina, James Otto, A Thousand Horses, LoCash, The Swon Brothers and more. Also deemed Pepsi's No. 1 Country Star Lighting Up 2015 Out of Nowhere, Lucy Angel was honored as the first Western/American act to ever sing at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, China and "Crazy Too" found success in the UK, spending 6 weeks at No. 1 on the Hotdisc Chart. DISCOVERING LUCY ANGEL made it's UK debut on SHOWBIZ TV in February and has garnered the trio a great deal of international media attention. Lucy Angel most recently performed on ABC's hit romance reality show The Bachelor, which catapulted their digital sales landing them in the top 30 on the iTunes Country chart.
