Kip Moore burst onto the national music scene in 2011, quickly establishing himself as one of country music's hottest new stars. Moore is an American Country Music singer-songwriter from Nashville, Tennessee who is known for combining a raw and rustic voice with compelling lyrics of honesty to create a unique sound that's simultaneously hypnotic and edgy. His voice is weathered by life's detours and disappointments and strengthened by his dreams and determination. His music is infused with relentless intensity, both of passion and frustration. His debut album "Up All Night" was released in 2014 and was the best-selling album by a male in both 2012 and 2013. His debut single "Mary was the Marrying Kind" peaked at number 45 on the country singles charts before releasing his second single, "Somethin' Bout a Truck," which hit number 1 on the Billboard country charts within a month of release. Most recently, he released his third studio album, "Slowheart."

At 81 years young, Buddy Guy proves that it gets greater later as he continues to record and tour around the world. The title of his latest album, "The Blues Is Alive and Well," says it all. The legendary blues artist's eighteenth solo LP and follow-up to 2015's "Born to Play Guitar" showcases his raw and unadulterated sound, its fifteen tracks a true pleasure for aficionados and genre newcomers alike. The recipient of the 2015 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, Buddy Guy's incredible career spans over 50 years with just as many albums released. Career highlights include seven Grammy Awards, 37 Blues Music Awards, Kennedy Center Honors, Presidential National Medal of Arts, and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
