About Hunter Hayes
Multiple GRAMMY nominated artist, Hunter Hayes, is a multi-talented performer, musician, producer, and writer who was nominated for six Academy of Country Music Awards, including nods for his work as artist, songwriter, and producer. His critically acclaimed self-titled album has already garnered two No. 1 singles, selling almost five million singles to date while the album itself nears platinum certification. His current single, "I Want Crazy," is off the forthcoming Hunter Hayes (Encore) deluxe edition due out June 18th. Hunter has been touring and performing live for decades. He has headlined sold out venues across the US and Canada. The Louisiana native has also shared the stage with Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Trace Adkins, Brad Paisley, Hank Williams, Jr. and most recently, his friend, Stevie Wonder.

About Ashley Monroe
Ashley Monroe released her critically-acclaimed album Like A Rose, co-produced by 20-time GRAMMY award-winner Vince Gill and Justin Niebank, earlier this year. Monroe co-wrote the entire album working with the legendary Hall of Fame songwriter Guy Clark as well as many of Nashville's A-list songwriters. Creating music for more than half of her life - attracting kudos along the way from some of music's finest contemporaries such as Dolly Parton and Jack White - her new, full-length album release serves both to fill in the back-story and impart to us who she is today. At times her songs are dead serious, at others utterly hilarious, but always Monroe is an original with a compelling story to share. Named one of People's "10 Best Albums (so far)" along with being called "the first great album of the year," by Washington Post, Monroe's Like A Rose also received stunning 4 out of 4 star reviews from USA Today and Rolling Stone.
