Tuesday, June 5 – David Nail

Among the accolades: The Oklahoman‘s Brandy McDonnell wrote that “Nail proves that his strength is using that soulful voice to transport listeners into the songs and the places, feelings and stories in them”; and the Los Angeles Times‘ Randy Lewis stated, “Nail is plowing more fertile territory than so many of his peers who seem content to invoke stereotypical images and situations and then be on their happy-go-lucky way.”
Friday, July 13- Jana Kramer
Warner Bros. Nashville artist Jana Kramer’s singles include “I Won’t Give Up” and “Why Ya Wanna”; her debut CD will be released this summer. A successful actress, Kramer has appeared as a regular or recurring character on several television series, including Friday Night Lights, 90210, Entourage and One Tree Hill, and her music has been featured on One Tree Hill.

Since releasing its Top 10 hit “Runaway” on Lyric Street’s Carolwood Records two years ago, the band Love and Theft has downsized to a duo (Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson), signed with RCA Records and been nominated for ACM Vocal Duo of the Year.
