Named one of the Best Albums of the Year by The New York Times and US Weekly, the Platinum-selling project features 12 songs all written by Hunt, including his No. 1 hits “Kinfolks”; “Breaking Up Was Easy in the 90’s”; one of NPR’s “Best Songs of 2020,” “Hard To Forget”; and his three-week No. 1, nine-times-Platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated smash, “Body Like A Back Road.” Hunt also wrote his recent eighth chart-topping hit, “23,” his latest radio staple “Water Under the Bridge,” and brand-new tracks, “Start Nowhere” and “Walmart.”

About Brett Young

Young has captured the hearts of fans everywhere through his honest lyrics and West Coast-meets-Southern sound, aptly dubbed "Caliville" style. With an undeniable string of seven No. 1s – “In Case You Didn't Know" (eight-times Platinum), "Mercy" (four-times-Platinum), "Sleep Without You" (Platinum) "Like I Loved You" (two-times-Platinum), "Here Tonight" (Platinum), "Catch" (Platinum) and "Lady" (Platinum) – and two albums defined by a transcendent romantic spark, he has cemented his status as country's master over matters of the heart.

The star broadened his emotional scope on “Weekends Look A Little Different These Days.” The project features his current single that is climbing through the Top 15 on country radio, "You Didn't"; and "Lady," whose lyrics inspired Young's debut children's book, “Love You, Little Lady,” published by Tommy Nelson (an imprint of HarperCollins).

Young previously debuted atop the Billboard country albums chart with his Gold-certified “Ticket To LA.” His Platinum self-titled debut dominated the Top 20 on the country albums chart for 37 weeks, all contributing to over 5.5 billion global streams. Young was named ASCAP's 2018 Country Songwriter-Artist of the Year for his "melodic craftsmanship"(Billboard) and has also garnered nominations from ACM, Billboard, Teen Choice, CMT and CMA Awards as he continues to rack up nonstop hits as "one of Country's most consistent radio stars" (Rolling Stone). 

Alongside Shay Mooney and Bear Rinehart, Young also penned "Long Way Home (From The Motion Picture 'Father Stu')" a song featured in the Sony Pictures film starring Academy Award nominee Mark Wahlberg. For tour dates and more, visit BrettYoungMusic.com.

About Lily Rose

​​Words like “groundbreaking” and “trailblazing” are often overused. But for Big Loud Records / Back Blocks Music and Republic Records Country star Lily Rose, they may actually be an understatement. The modern expression of country’s most treasured ideal – pure, unflinching honesty – her debut hit, “Villain,” has revealed Rose as a talent both 100% unique and utterly relatable, with a fresh perspective and forward-looking sound.

A Georgia native whose inspirations range from Bruce Springsteen to Keith Urban and Katy Perry, Rose broke out in 2020 with the viral smash, “Villain.” Both vulnerable and defiant with a boundary pushing country-meets-R&B sound, the track hit No. 1 on the iTunes all-genre chart and SiriusXM's “The Highway” “Hot 30 Weekend Countdown,” leading to her new, 10-song project, “Stronger Than I Am.”

In 2022, Rose was nominated for ACM Best New Female Artist and recognized for Outstanding Breakthrough Artist at the 2022 GLAAD Media Awards. Rose kicked off 2023 with a headlining tour that featured sold-out shows in New York City, Philadelphia and Boston, and will join Shania Twain in the fall for 11-stops on her “Queen of Me Tour.” 

With her focus firmly on integrity, Rose’s bold mix of personal lyricism and distinctive language meets the hooky sonics of a post-genre fanbase, as pure-country confessions merge with hip-hop beats and R&B flow – plus representation where there was none before. All told, it gives new credence to her “groundbreaking” label.
