GRAMMY®-nominated Sam Hunt today announced the winners of Hyundai and The Recording Academy® fourth annual GRAMMY Amplifier® program. Chosen from about 4,000 entrants, hard rockers American Bombshell, R&B artist Kirby Maurier and Blake Shelton team member on season two of The Voice, Adley Stump. Each win one of three prize packages: a studio recording session with a Recording Academy producer, a live performance showcase series opening for a noted artist; or the filming of a music video with a celebrated director.

“It takes a whole lot of passion, commitment and conviction to put yourself out there, to enter a competition and to be judged,” said Sam Hunt who helped pick Adley Stump. “There is no formula for making it in this business, but American Bombshell, Kirby and Adley have been given a tremendous opportunity to learn and grow as musicians. There’s absolutely nothing that gives us more pleasure than to be a part of an initiative like the GRAMMY Amplifier® program, that gives these aspiring talents opportunities that will help them to develop their crafts.”

“What an immeasurable honor. I am so thankful to the Grammy’s for front-running this initiative that recognizes & fosters independent talent. I couldn’t be more humbled to have been acknowledged; there is no better organization from which to learn and grow, not only as an artist, but as a person & a member of the creative community I love so much,” says Adley.

Adley Stump got her start in country music by auditioning for season 2 of The Voice on a dare and securing a spot on Blake Shelton’s team. Her latest two musical releases have been in the iTunes Top 40 Country Chart and she contributed to the book “How They Sell Music.” Stump is currently recording in FAME Studios in Nashville.

The fourth annual GRAMMY Amplifier program launched last November.
