Live In The Vineyard Goes Country attendees will be treated to a very special acoustic performance at the Opening Reception on Tuesday, May 14 by SONY Nashville artists Brad Paisley, LANCO and Walker HayesBrad Paisley is a critically acclaimed singer, songwriter, guitarist and entertainer whose talents have earned him numerous awards, including three GRAMMYs, two American Music Awards, 14 Academy of Country Music Awards and 14 Country Music Association Awards (including Entertainer of the Year), among many others. He has been a proud member of the Grand Ole Opry since 2001. Paisley has written 21 of his 24 #1 hits and has accumulated over 20 million career total worldwide album sales, track downloads and streaming equivalents. His 2019 World Tour was recently announced and kicks off May 30 and concludes Oct. 13 after traveling across the U.S. and also several dates in Canada and Europe.  His current single is a passionate love song titled “My Miracle.” Paisley has partnered with Boot Barn® and developed an exclusive line of jeans, hats, T-shirts, jewelry, belts and woven shirts called Moonshine Spirit by Brad Paisley. One singer might be a force, but five is a family. It’s impossible to deny: there’s just something about the power of a band, where songs form a bond thicker than blood. Which speaks to so many different corners of the music lover’s heart. That experience is at the core of LANCO – singer and lyricist Brandon Lancaster, It’s a collective effort from five artists with solid southern roots that rocks and twangs equally, making songs like “Greatest Love Story,” their newest single, resonate like few others: one part classic, one part cutting edge and completely honest. Monument Records recording artist, Walker Hayes, is a singer/songwriter originally from Mobile, AL. Hayes’ current single “90’s Country,” which made its debut on Good Morning America, references 22 hit country songs from the 1990’s. In December 2017, Hayes released his debut album boom., which he co-produced with GRAMMY Award winning producer and songwriter, McAnally. The 10 track album includes the RIAA certified Platinum hit, “You Broke Up With Me,” as well as fan favorites “Halloween” and “Beautiful.” Tracks from the album were nominated for Radio Disney Country Favorite Song (“You Broke Up With Me”), CMT Breakthrough Music Video of the Year (“You Broke Up With Me”), and AIMP Song of the Year (“Craig”). Earlier this year, Hayes kicked off his headlining, Dream On It tour, which continues throughout the Spring. He has previously toured with Kelsea Ballerina, Thomas Rhett, Dan + Shay, Old Dominion, and more.

On Wednesday, May 15 attendees will enjoy a tailgate style “guitar pull” with Caylee Hammack, Chris Lane, HARDY and Ingrid Andress. Capitol Records Nashville’s Caylee Hammack constantly felt like a self-described “hippie in a hillbilly town” in her tiny hometown of Ellaville, Georgia. “I used to pray every night as a kid, ‘God, just please make me different. Don’t make me like everyone else,’” she remembers. Hammack is indeed refreshingly different. She’s a country expressionist, a grungy firebrand and a spiritual seeker. And at only 24, she has already packed a full life into just a few years, using fake IDs to get gigs around South Georgia, turning down a college scholarship for a love that burned out just a few months later, sleeping in her car when she arrived in Nashville and then losing her home in an electrical fire. The soulful “Family Tree” is the debut track from her forthcoming album, which she both co-wrote and co-produced. Since bursting onto the scene with his breakout #1 smash “Fix,” Chris Lane’s star continues to rise with GOLD and PLATINUM level single certifications, two Top 10 albums and nearly 1 BILLION combined streams. Out of the gate, his irresistible new single “I Don’t Know About You” is climbing the Country radio charts and follows the success of his hit collaboration “Take Back Home Girl” with Tori Kelly. Both songs are featured on Lane’s Big Loud Records sophomore album – LAPS AROUND THE SUN – that made a chart-topping debut, landing at #1 on the iTunes Top Country Albums chart and inside the Top 10 of Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart for the second time in his career. Gaining recognition, Lane was named one of MusicRow Magazine’s 2017 Next Big Thing Artists, has scored nominations at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, ACM Awards and Radio Disney Music Awards and appeared on TODAY, The Bachelor, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night With Seth Meyers and CONAN. Previously landing coveted opening slots on tours with Florida Georgia Line, Dustin Lynch, Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw + Faith Hill, and Rascal Flatts, the Kernersville, NC-native closed out his second headline run – the LAPS AROUND THE SUN TOUR – in January. He will join DAN + SHAY THE TOUR this spring, before hitting the road with Brad Paisley as direct support on his 2019 WORLD TOUR. A native of Philadelphia – (the one in Mississippi, not the City of Brotherly Love) – Big Loud Records/Tree Vibez Music Country artist HARDY first arrived in Nashville in 2010 and has since established himself as one of the most exciting new songwriters on Music Row. Emerging in 2018 with the PLATINUM-certified #1 “Up Down” (performed by Morgan Wallen feat. Florida Georgia Line) and PLATINUM-certified, #1 hit “Simple” (Florida Georgia Line), his knack for unforgettable grooves and unique turns of phrase have made him an in-demand collaborator, with new school talents like Chris Lane, Seth Ennis, Tyler Farr, Walker McGuire and more lining up to cut his tracks. HARDY made his debut as a solo artist, releasing two four- song EPs of Country swagger and rock attitude, THIS OLE BOY (October 2018) and WHERE TO FIND ME (January 2019). Putting his artistic identity on display, HARDY’s voice is gritty in “4×4,” soulful in the background vocals of “This Ole Boy,” resigned in “Signed, Sober You” and edgy in the stack of harmonies in first single “Rednecker.” HARDY is introducing his fresh Country sound to fans for the first time as part of Wallen’s IF I KNOW ME TOUR on the road now, and will join multi-platinum duo Florida Georgia Line for their CAN’T SAY I AIN’T COUNTRY TOUR this summer. Atlantic Records / Warner Music Nashville recording artist Ingrid Andress has been chipping away at expectations of herself, and her sound, since she was a young child. As good at sports as she was writing songs, Andress was born into a large family and homeschooled in her youth, growing up outside of the traditional definitions that apply to most kids. On her debut song “Lady Like,” Andress addresses how these early life experiences led her to question what females are “supposed” to do, or how they’re supposed to interact with the world around them. The “slow-burning anthem of independence” (Rolling Stone) earned MusicRow‘s DISCovery Award, with Paper applauding how her use of “lyrical specificity, moments of self-critical vulnerability and raw vocal gravity makes [country music’s] well-worn motifs sound fresh.”  The New York Times has praised her voice for being “steady, calm, [and] alive” with CMT naming her a “Listen Up” and “Next Women of Country” artist for 2019, declaring that she’s “arguably one of the most creative tunesmiths to call Nashville home in recent memory.” Having written with heavy hitters in the music community such as Sam Hunt and Alicia Keys, Andress has co-writer credits on hits like “Steady 1234” and Charli XCX’s “Boys.” Andress will continue to release new music in 2019 that will prove her to be one of the most unique and moving voices in the country space and beyond; one that is thrillingly honest, raw and refreshing in a way rarely seen emanating from Music City.

The night of May 15 attendees will head to Uptown Theatre for the main concert event featuring Brothers Osborne, Cody Johnson, Michael Ray and headline performance by Little Big Town.  GRAMMY, ACM, CMA, and AMA Award-winning group, Little Big Town — consisting of members Karen Fairchild, Phillip Sweet, Kimberly Schlapman, and Jimi Westbrook — first entered the music scene over 20 years ago with hit songs “Boondocks,” “Bring It On Home,” “Good As Gone” and the GRAMMY- nominated “Little White Church.” Their breakthrough albums Tornado and Pain Killer produced multiple #1 singles, including “Pontoon,” “Tornado,” and “Day Drinking,” as well as the history-making, best- selling country single of the year (2015) “Girl Crush.” Little Big Town’s last studio album, The Breaker, debuted #1 on the Billboard Country Charts and Top 10 (No.4) on the Billboard 200 to critical acclaim, marking the group’s fourth Top 10 debut on the Billboard 200 chart. The album features their GRAMMY- winning, multi-week #1 single, “Better Man,” as well as the 2019 GRAMMY-nominated, “When Someone Stops Loving You.” The band is currently in the studio working on a new album expected for release later this year. Little Big Town has earned more than 40 award show nominations and in the past five years has taken home nearly 20 awards, including multiple GRAMMY, AMA, People’s Choice, CMA, ACM awards, and an Emmy award. The Country Music Hall of Fame inductees (2014) went onto receive their star on the Nashville Walk of Fame in 2017. This past July, The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville launched their new, yearlong exhibit called LITTLE BIG TOWN: THE POWER OF FOUR showcasing the bands powerful and storied 20-year history within the country music community. The band recently launched 4 Cellars wine, their first non-musical project as a band, with Browne Family Vineyards.

Two sons from a working-class family, John and TJ Osborne grew up in a small, Maryland water town writing and playing s ongs for friends and family in their father’s shed. John moved to Nashville first to play in other bands and two years later, TJ joined him. It was then they formed Brothers Osborne as a duo that blends equal parts country and rock into one of the freshest, most identifiable sounds to come out of Nashville in recent years. The singer/songwriter siblings recently took home their third CMA Vocal Duo of the Year trophy at the 2018 CMA Awards where they also performed the Top 10 hit “Burning Man” with Dierks Bentley. Earlier this year, Brothers Osborne earned back-to-back ACM Vocal Duo of the Year Awards along with ACM Music Video of the Year for their Top 10, GRAMMY-nominated Platinum single, “It Ain’t My Fault.” The award-winning video also won the 2017 CMA Music Video of the Year Award. Brothers Osborne’s debut album PAWN SHOP was released January 2016 and has been certified Gold by the RIAA. PAWN SHOP features three GRAMMY-nominated tracks including “It Ain’t My Fault,” the Platinum Certified No. 1 smash hit “Stay A Little Longer,” as well as Top 25 hit “21 Summer.” They just released their new single “I Don’t Remember Me (Before You)” off their sophomore album, PORT SAINT JOE, which continues to receive acclaimed reviews from critics and fans alike and was recently nominated for Best Country Album at the 61st GRAMMY Awards. Brothers Osborne has previously toured with Chris Stapleton, Eric Church, Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert and more. The duo is currently on their Headlining World Tour hitting over 40 markets including London, Toronto, New York, Los Angeles and Nashville. Cody Johnson’s first major label release Ain’t Nothin’ To It impressively debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart after becoming the third-highest pre-added country album of all time on Apple Music. The 15-track release also appeared on three of their all-genre charts, arriving at #1 on the Digital Albums chart, #2 on the Top Album Sales chart and #9 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album’s lead single “On My Way To You,” which Johnson performed on TODAY, is rapidly climbing toward top 10 at country radio. With an independent catalogue five albums deep and over 525 million on-demand streams, he has established a rabid following of loyal fans that thirst for his unique and authentic brand of country music. The aptly named CoJoNation regularly flock to shows across the country, helping him become the first independent artist to sell out Rodeo Houston and causing his very first Ryman Auditorium date to be sold out four months in advance. The former rodeo bull rider, turned prison guard, turned budding country star is known for his explosive live shows and electrifying stage presence. Prior to signing a joint venture with Warner Music Nashville, Johnson’s independently released project skyrocketed to No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and No. 11 on the Billboard 200 Chart. Country singer-songwriter Michael Ray was a hit right out of the box, scoring both with critics and on the charts. With Country Aircheck boasting there are “big things on the horizon for Michael Ray” and his live shows lauded by USA Today as simply “lip- smacking good,” the Florida native backed up that praise with two number ones from his 2015 self-titled debut album with “Kiss You in the Morning” and “Think a Little Less.” His sophomore album, Amos, which debuted in the Top 3 on the Billboard Country Charts upon release has already spawned the hit “Get to You” and Top 10-and-climbing single “One That Got Away,” which All Access declared “an undeniable crowd pleaser.” Michael Ray, nominated for New Male Artist of the Year at the upcoming ACM Awards, is currently headlining select dates in addition to recent trips across the globe for the UK’s C2C festival and CMC Rocks 2019 in Australia. He will also be playing a number of fairs and festival dates this summer, including Tortuga Music Festival, Stagecoach, Country Thunder and Faster Horses.

Live In The Vineyard Goes Country will conclude on Thursday, May 16 with a Send Off Brunch featuring performances by Gone West, Morgan Evans and Scotty McCreery. Gone West is a new Nashville-based band featuring 2-time Grammy award winner Colbie Caillat, multi-platinum singer/songwriter Jason Reeves, 4-time Hawaii music award winner Justin Kawika Young and ACM and CMT nominated artist Nelly Joy.” Praised by Rolling Stone as “a savvy performer with strong songwriting chops,” Australian-born rising Country artist Morgan Evans is celebrating the release of his debut album, Things That We Drink To (Warner Bros. Records / Warner Music Nashville), out now. The project features his #1 debut US single “Kiss Somebody,” as well as chart-rising follow-up “Day Drunk.” Forging a path as one of the genre’s up-and-coming stars, he has been named to People’s elite “Ones To Watch” 2018 list, MusicRow Magazine’s “Next Big Thing” 2019 list and spotlighted as an emerging artist by CMT, SiriusXM, Pandora, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Bobby Bones, The Tennessean and more. An award-winning Country force in Australia, he recently reached new heights by topping both the Aussie Pop and Country charts with “Day Drunk.” Previously sharing the bill with Taylor Swift, Chris Young, Cole Swindell and more A-list acts, Evans completed his 10 in 10 Tour, performing 10-straight shows in 10 days including sold-out headline dates in Los Angeles, CA, Atlanta, GA, and New York, NY. He is currently on the road with Dan + Shay through the end of March. Multi-Platinum-selling singer/songwriter Scotty McCreery has recently achieved two back-to-back No. 1 hits: the RIAA Platinum-certified “Five More Minutes” and the RIAA Gold-certified “This is It” (which stayed at No. 1 for two weeks). Both songs, plus his new single, “In Between,” are from his current album Seasons Change, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart last year. Billboard ranked “Five More Minutes” at No. 3 on their “20 Best Country Songs of 2018: Critics Pick” list, and wrote that it “…became a declaration of independence from an artist who matured from a blue-chip prospect to a power player.” The ACM, BMI, CMT, and NSAI Award-winning McCreery made history in 2011 as both the first country artist and the youngest male artist of any genre to debut his first studio album, the Platinum-certified Clear as Day, at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard Top 200 Albums chart.
