About Eric Church:
Eric Church recently released his widely praised sophomore effort, Carolina. The album debuted at #4 on the country charts and yielded the Top 10 single, “Love Your Love the Most” and the current single, “Hell on the Heart,” which is Top 25 and climbing. Rolling Stone praised the album’s “surging guitars bolstering good-ol’-boy narratives,” and The New York Times declared, “His music puts rock muscle behind honky-tonk and turns ballads into intimate close-ups.” Carolina follows the breakthrough success of Church’s critically acclaimed first effort, Sinners Like Me, which claimed three Top 20 singles and a #1 video. The album earned Church widespread praise from Associated Press, Rolling Stone, People Magazine and The New York Times. Visit www.EricChurch.com for more information.
About Emily West:
Emily West’s rich, distinctive vocals and smart, emotive songs combined with her energetic and engaging stage presence make her hard to ignore, much like the iconic female country artists – Patsy Cline, Tammy Wynette and Loretta Lynn – that she’s always looked up to. “Emily West is an original,” explains Keith Urban, who is featured on “Blue Sky,” the heartbreaking new single that West co-penned with Gary Burr. The song illustrates the pain from the split of West’s parents after 32 years of marriage. Visit www.myspace.com/emilywest for more information.
