Owen is an ACM award-winner and has had six No. 1 singles to date : the 2X platinum anthem “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” platinum-certified hits “Beachin’,” “Anywhere with You,” “Alone with You,” “The One That Got Away,” and, go-certified “American Country Love Song.” Owen's fifth studio album, American Love, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and No. 4 on the Billboard 200 all-genre chart. Most recently, Owen signed a new label deal with Big Loud Records, reuniting him with Joey Moi, who produced his biggest hits to date. Owen and Moi are currently in the studio working on a new record.
Country artist and prolific singer/songwriter Chris Janson began his professional music career more than a decade ago, but his recently released sophomore album Everybody has elevated him to the next level. Called “quite possibly the most important song to come out of Nashville in years” (CMT), Janson’s brand new single “Drunk Girl” is already drawing praise from fans and critics alike. The “heart-piercing ballad” (People) follows No. 1 singles “Fix A Drink” and his debut album’s platinum-certified smash “Buy Me A Boat.” Janson has also penned chart-topping hits for artists including Tim McGraw, LoCash and more. Lauded for his “infectious” (Billboard) performances, the electrifying multi-instrumentalist is hitting arenas across the nation this spring alongside label mate Cole Swindell on the "Reasons To Drink" Tour. A Grand Ole Opry regular with over 150 appearances to his name, Janson was recently invited by Keith Urban to become the hallowed organization’s newest member.
MCA Nashville’s Jordan Davis has been named an “Artist to Watch” by Billboard, Rolling Stone, CMT, Pandora, Shazam, Amazon Music, Sounds Like Nashville, The Tennessean, Whiskey Riff and more. A native of Shreveport, Louisiana, Jordan was surrounded by music from a young age as both of his parents played instruments and he sang in his church choir. The middle of three children, he learned to play guitar around the age of 12 in between baseball and football games. After graduating from LSU, Jordan briefly pursued the path of his degree working as an environmental consultant in Baton Rouge, Louisiana; however, his passion for music and songwriting eventually compelled him to move to Nashville in the summer of 2012. In 2015, he signed with ole for publishing followed by a record deal with Universal Music Group in 2016. Last year, Jordan received the prestigious Songwriters Hall of Fame Abe Olman Scholarship for Excellence in Songwriting as the only Nashville-based songwriter. Jordan just released his debut single “Singles You Up,” which continues to climb country radio’s Top 10. “Singles You Up” spent several weeks on the Spotify US Viral Chart (all genre) and even hit the Spotify Global Viral Chart (all genre). The singer/songwriter wrapped touring with Kip Moore on his "Plead The Fifth Tour” last fall and just embarked on his first headlining “White Wine and Whiskey Tour” this month with special guest Jillian Jacqueline. Jordan is set to release his debut album HOME STATE on March 23.
