Uncle Kracker is a MULTI-PLATINUM selling artist, with massive #1 hits such as “Follow Me,” “Smile,” and his collaboration with Kenny Chesney “When The Sun Goes Down.” His cover of Dobie Gray’s “Drift Away” set a Billboard record for the most weeks at #1 on any chart, at a staggering 28 weeks atop the Adult Contemporary radio charts. This Detroit-native and well-known former member of Kid Rock’s band fully embraced his Country side with 2012’s critically acclaimed album Midnight Special. Continuing to create new music, recent releases include “Sweet 16,” “Reason To Drink” and “Cruising Altitude,” with a brand-new album expected to drop later this year.

RVSHVD: Rising country singer-songwriter RVSHVD (pronounced RA-SHAD) hails from the small town of Willacoochee, Ga. Ten years ago, he heard Keith Urban’s “Sweet Thing” and dove headfirst into writing and recording country music, finding the genre more personal and rewarding. RVSHVD, recently touted by Billboard as the magazine’s Country Rookie of The Month, will be touring with stops at Stagecoach and CMA Fest. His latest release, “Deal with the Devil,” features singer Danny Worsnop of the band Asking Alexandria.
