Brett Eldredge’s current single, “Drunk On Your Love” is the second single from his recently released sophomore album, Illinois. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and #3 on the Billboard top 200 Chart and has already produced the #1 single “Lose My Mind.” The 2014 CMA New Artist of the Year co-wrote and co-produced every song on the 12 set disc, which follows on the heels of his 2013 debut album Bring You Back.
Twenty-five year-old Columbia Nashville singer/songwriter Maren Morris has quickly established herself in Nashville’s music community with songwriting and vocal stylings that reflect her Country, Folk and Pop influences, with Rolling Stone Country touting her “a stellar solo artist in her own right.” Songs from her self-titled EP have been critically received and just two weeks after its release surpassed 5.5 million streams, with 3 songs hitting Spotify’s US and Global “Viral 50″ chart, zipping to #1 on Billboard’s Heat Seeker Album Chart. Her first single, “My Church,” has been released to Country radio and is already in the Top 15.
Urban’s ‘ripCORD World Tour 2016’ takes place on the heels of his soon to be released eighth studio album release of the same name, which has already produced two singles – his Grammy nominated, #1 song, “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16” and its second single “Break On Me,” which just became Urban’s 20th #1 song. The album will be the follow-up to Urban’s groundbreaking release FUSE, his fourth #1 album, marking the first time in history that a male Country artist had debuted atop the all-genre charts in the U.S., Canada and Australia.
