Eric Church began writing songs at the age of 13 in his hometown of Granite Falls, N.C. His style of music is honest and reflects the human spirit, reminiscent of artists such as Merle Haggard, John Prine and Steve Earle.
Church released his newest album, "Carolina," in 2009, and has had two singles from it — "Love Your Love the Most" and "Hell on the Heart" — reach Billboard Magazine's Country Top 10 chart.
His newest single, "Smoke a Little Smoke," is currently on its way to huge success, as well.
Jonathan Singleton and the Grove's music draws influence from Singleton's hometown of Jackson, Tenn., nestled between the cities of Memphis and Nashville.
Memphis shaped the bluesy style of the music while Nashville guided the lyrical story-telling delivered by Singleton's weathered, but still smooth voice.
The Grove released their self-titled EP in May 2010.
Nash Street is comprised of a group of Starkville natives that successfully bridges the gap between country music and traditional bluegrass.
Nash Street's influences include Chris Thile, The Eagles and Ricky Skaggs to compliment the soulful melodies of the Mississippi and the leisurely rhythm of Southern life; the quintet describes their music as grassroots country.
Nash Street's newest CD is titled "Between Hope and Heartache."
