Kellie Pickler
After making it to the top six on the 5th season of American Idol, Kellie Pickler was guaranteed a place on the American Idol tour. Her unmistakable talent and star quality also earned her a recording
contract in Nashville.



Her debut album, Small Town Girl, was released on Halloween Day, 2006, and was certified Gold just three months after its release. It yielded 3 top 15 singles.


On the national broadcast of the 41st CMA Awards in 2007, she offered a heart-wrenching performance of “I Wonder,” the yearning song she had written about the mother who abandoned her as a child.

“Don’t You Know You’re Beautiful,” is more than a song, it’s a statement from Kellie, who chose the upbeat tune to lead off her self-titled second album. Urging inner strength, independence and confidence, it is powerful message from this resilient young woman who has wrestled with insecurity, endured tragedy, suffered heartbreak and celebrated triumph on a winding road to maturity, self-awareness and newfound happiness. She is destined to remain one of Country Music’s lasting stars.

Houston County
Zack and Adam Hooper put their music careers on hold and were working in their family's restaurant when Adam began collaborating with John Milldrum. Adam soon asked Zack to join them and Houston Countywas born.
          
With their debut CD on Stroudavarious Records, the trio announce themselves as one of country music's most compelling new acts.

Adam and John's musicianship perfectly complements Zack's skill with lyrics. Their songs are emotionally powerful treatments of loss, confusion, hope, belief and purpose, brought into focus by their collective musical talents.
          
The album varies from the upbeat and summery "Workin' On A Suntan," to "Nothing's Gonna Shake Me," a declaration of steadfast love and "I Can't Make It Rain," the album's poignant first single.

Matt Kennon
Matt Kennon, recently signed to BamaJam Records, bursts onto the scene with the impactful song, “The Call.” Rife with redemption, the tender and touching ballad is causing radio request lines to light up nationwide. “The Call” is a moving story of how simply reaching out to someone else can make all the difference. One phone call can be life affirming, even life-saving. The powerful song was produced by the legendary James Stroud.

Whiskey-voiced and heavily tattooed, Matt Kennon survived a rebellious youth and came out on the other side with his faith, determination and a love of music intact. As a songwriter, Kennon’s lyrics tell his story and the stories of countless others who have been challenged by life and have overcome tremendous odds to achieve success.


Kennon is clear about his music and his mission.

 “I want to touch people with my music,” Matt says. “This is my calling. This is what God put me on this earth to do. Whether it’s 100 people or 1 million, I want to have an impact.”
