About The Artists:
Deborah Allen – Deborah Allen is best known for her Grammy-nominated smash, “Baby I Lied,” but this singer/songwriter/producer’s career has been bolstered with numerous hits on the Pop and Country charts: “Rock Me,” “I’ve Been Wrong Before,” “I Hurt For You” and plenty of others. Deborah’s new album (out this summer) features her signature sound of Country, Blues, Pop and Rock influences – delivered in a way that only this sultry Delta singer from Memphis can. The first single is a fun-loving, funky Country shuffle called “Anything Other Than Love.” www.DeborahAllen.com
Lacy Green – North Carolina native Lacy Green was exposed at an early age to the Country, Bluegrass and Folk music that dominated her local music scene. Her 2011 debut single, “For the Summertime,” reflects those influences admirably in a warm, Alison Krauss-inspired sound. The 21-year-old college student and singer is currently busy recording her debut album in Nashville with renowned producer and songwriter Ronnie Bowman. “For the Summertime” is due at Country radio in June, with an EP release scheduled for this fall. www.LacyGreen.com
Adam Gregory – This Edmonton, Alberta native secured his first record deal at age 13 and was a Gold-selling artist in Canada by the time he moved to Nashville in 2007. He released his U.S. debut single, “Crazy Days,” in 2008 and followed up the Top 30 Music Row effort with the ballad, “What It Takes.” In 2010, he starred in the film “What Would Jesus Do?” with John Schneider. Currently, Adam is splitting his time between Edmonton and Nashville, where he is writing material with a number of prominent, chart-topping songwriters in preparation for his next project. www.AdamGregory.com
Amber Hayes – Amber Hayes had a breakout year in 2010 with her Top 40 debut single, “C’mon.” Her follow-up, “Wait,” is currently climbing the charts and closing in fast on another Top 40 appearance. Award-winning director Steven Goldmann shot the video for “Wait,” which world-premiered on Yallwire.com on May 13. This Oklahoma native and former theater star is as genuine as they come and one of those rare artists today that can make radio-friendly Country music without straying too far from tradition. Her debut EP was released through FUNL Music in September 2010. www.AmberHayesMusic.com
Ty Herndon - Ty Herndon’s latest album, the Country/Christian/Bluegrass-inspired Journey On, earned the chart-topping Country singer a Grammy nomination in 2011 and a Dove Award in 2010. The title track was also selected as the signature song for the Kevin Turner Foundation. Turner is an ex-NFL player recently diagnosed with ALS, and after hearing “Journey On,” Turner and Herndon agreed that it was the perfect song to help raise awareness in the fight against ALS. Both Ty and Kevin have been chosen as co-chairs in this year’s national ALS Therapy Alliance/CVS campaign, featured in 7,400 stores across the country. Ty is currently working on a new, 100% Country effort and preparing to release a new single later in 2011. www.TyHerndon.com
Rachel Holder – Eighteen-year-old Rachel Holder possesses the kind of voice that makes an immediate impression. For the past several months, Rachel has been working in the studio on her debut album with industry vet and respected producer Chuck Howard. The first single, “Chocolate,” is currently at Country radio and is already making a connection with female listeners. Rachel also released a special holiday track and video in December for her cover of “Christmas Eve.” Rachel’s debut album is due out later this year on All Entertainment. www.RachelHolder.com
DJ Miller – DJ Miller is grabbing Country radio’s attention with his most recent single, “Whatever It Takes.” The heartfelt track earned the singer his first Top 40 single on the Billboard Country Indicator, Aircheck Activator and Music Row charts. This 21-year-old from Idaville, Indiana, is known for his entertaining stage show, and with a new album ready for release this summer, he’ll be on the road bringing that show to Country music fans everywhere. DJ’s debut single in 2010 was the up-tempo party track, “A Little Naughty Is Nice.” DJ is gearing up for his next release, “Between Sundays,” which will be at radio in the coming weeks. www.DJMillerCountry.com
Margaret Phillips – Newcomer Margaret Phillips has the voice to match her striking looks. At nearly six feet tall, the model-esque Phillips is certainly a compelling presence on stage, but this Mississippi native is more than just another pretty face. Discovered by Grammy-nominated artist Deborah Allen, the two women have been writing material for Margaret’s debut album, due out in 2011. The bluesy, soulful influences of her upbringing are balanced nicely with her affection for Country acts like Sugarland, Lee Ann Womack and Loretta Lynn. Produced by Allen, the project’s first single is expected this summer. www.MargaretPhillipsMusic.com
