ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Dylan Altman has been writing songs and performing in Nashville since 1995. Altman has had three #1 songs: Tim McGraw’s “Watch The Wind Blow By,” Jake Owen’s “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” and most recently Jason Aldean’s “Take A Little Ride.” Other artists who have recorded Altman’s songs include Eric Paslay, Chase Bryant, Joe Nichols, Eli Young Band, Gloriana, Jennette McCurdy, Trace Adkins, Will Hoge, Gabe Dixon, John King, JT Hodges, The Almost, Ted Russell Kamp, Hayden Panettiere and Jonathan Jackson.

Craig Campbell played keyboards in his mother’s church and then on the road for then up-and-coming Luke Bryan, eventually landing a coveted bandleader gig in the famous Nashville honky-tonk, The Stage. Starting in 2010, “Family Man” and “Outta My Head” both cracked the Top 15 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, while other songs like “Fish” snagged more than 10 million on-demand streams. “Keep Them Kisses Comin’” became a Top 10 hit, while “Outskirts of Heaven” reached critical acclaim. Campbell’s latest single is “See You Try.”

Brice Long, a songwriter of 25 years, he has had cuts with Garth Brooks, George Strait, Chris Stapleton, Hank Williams Jr, Randy Houser, Josh Turner, Reba McEntire and Gary Allan to name a few. His songwriting hits include the #1 singles “Heartache On The Dance Floor” by Jon Pardi and “Nothing On But The Radio” by Gary Allan. Long was nominated for CMA Song of the Year for Randy Houser’s “Like a Cowboy.” Other recent chart toppers are Randy Houser’s debut single, “Anything Goes,” “Today” from Gary Allan, Casey James’ “Let’s Don’t Call It A Night,” and Jon Pardi’s, “What I Can’t Put Down.”

Leigh Nash recorded four full-length albums with Sixpence None the Richer. Their debut, which released when Nash was just 16, was 1994’s critically acclaimed LP The Fatherless & The Widow. In the years that followed, the band released numerous timeless songs and huge radio hits, from the GRAMMY-nominated “Kiss Me” to “There She Goes,” among many others. Today, Nash is based in Nashville working as a touring solo artist and songwriter, and she continues to tour with Sixpence None The Richer. “Get Happy” is Nash’s latest February-release and features the 20th Anniversary Edition of “Kiss Me” and a tapestry of new songs “God Gave Me Horses”, “My Love My Drug and “Something Worth Leaving Behind.”
