Pamela McNeill: McNeill grew up between the Mississippi River and Highway 61 in the small town of Minnesota City, Minnesota with a population of less than 200. She was raised in a home musically divided. Her mom brought in the pop genre, while her dad was all about country music, and these mixed influences can still be heard in McNeill's music today. McNeill recalls, “I spent all my allowance buying pop and country songs, and I learned how to play keys on my grandmother's Hammond organ.” In junior high and high school she played trombone in the jazz band and orchestra. By sixteen, she was in her first rock band opening shows for the iconic Minneapolis band, The Suburbs.

In her early twenties, McNeill moved to England and landed a gig touring with British superstar Rick Astley. She also appeared in his video, “Take Me to Your Heart.“ After returning to America, she was introduced to legendary performer and composer Yanni backstage at the Target Center in Minneapolis. The two hit it off professionally and shortly afterwards McNeill collaborated with Yanni, writing lyrics to several of his songs on his albums, “Tribute” and “Ethnicity”. In 1999, she was again “discovered” in a local television commercial and brought to the attention of the Duluth, MN United Way – who partnered with corporate sponsor Minnesota Power to finance her first album. The national United Way eventually caught wind of the album, “Two Sides to Every Sky”, and sponsored her tour across the United States.

Over the past few years McNeill has split her time between Nashville and her home state of Minnesota, where she performs over 150 shows a year doing gigs with the iconic Fabulous Armadillos,“Rumours and Dreams Fleetwood Mac Tribute” band, “Wild Angels – the Women of Rock, Pop, and Country”, “Rock and Roll XMAS Spectacular” as well headlining her own Pamela McNeill concerts. She has written with many Music City icons including Pam Tillis, Roxie Dean, and Buffy Lawson (Bombshell). In addition to Yanni, her songs have been cut by Wynonna Judd, and she recently caught the attention of Reba McEntire with her song, “Captivated.“ In 2017 she received a rare standing ovation at the world famous Bluebird Cafe after her debut performance.

His songs have been performed around the world including venues such as The Grand Ol’ Opry and the Ryman Auditorium. He has over a decade of experience on the Nashville music scene and has written songs recorded by artists such as Trace Adkins, Lonestar, Delta Rae, and Smithfield. His songs have been featured on CMT and Sirius/XM radio and have been streamed millions of times on platforms such as Spotify and YouTube. Adam is currently signed as a staff writer in a co-venture between platinum selling country artist Lee Brice and Curb publishing.
Bart Walker: Bart Walker is an award-winning Nashville guitar slinger, singer, song writer and currently lead guitar player for T. Graham Brown, Mike Farris & the Fortunate Few, and  Hank Williams Jr. A prodigy guitar player since the age of four, Bart has brought his sultry, rootsy, deep grooves as right-hand guitar man to country-rocker Bo Bice. He’s collaborated in the studio with such heavyweights as Steve Gorman (Black Crowes), Audley Freed (Cry of Love, Black Crowes) and Robert Kearns (Cry of Love, Lynyrd Skynyrd). He's played with Stevie Ray Vaughan's original back-up band Double Trouble and was joined in his own touring band by Double Trouble keyboarder Reese Wynans. Bart has toured all over the US, UK and Europe with  The Bart Walker Band, Mike Farris and the Roseland Rhythm Revueand Royal Southern BrotherhoodHe has swapped licks live with people like Leeroy Parnell, Blues Traveler, Robert  Randolph, Delbert McClinton, Marshal Tucker Band and many others. 
Doug Johnson: Whether it’s behind the pen as the writer of record-breaking hits like the recent Billboard “Song of the Year,” Love Like Crazy (Lee Brice) or the CMA and ACM “Song of the Year,” Three Wooden Crosses, (Randy Travis), at the console as the producer of artists like Lee Brice, Hank Jr., Clay Walker and Michael Montgomery, or behind the desk helming an A&R department, Doug Johnson knows his way around a hit.
In 2011, Doug Johnson joined the team at Black River Entertainment as the V.P. of A&R and is currently working with the artist roster of Kelsea Ballerini, Abby Anderson, Carolina Story, Hannah Kerr and Josh Wilson.

Throughout his 30-plus year career as a songwriter, Johnson has had over 100 cuts, including 7 Number One Hits and 10 Top 10’s by everyone from Bertie Higgins and Alicia Bridges to George Strait, Rascal Flatts, Trace Adkins, Wynonna and Kenny Rogers, among others. Johnson recently made history when he broke a country music record with new artist Lee Brice with the hit, Love Like Crazy, which spent an amazing 56 weeks on the charts.

His production credits are equally notable as well: as VP/A&R for Epic Records in the early 90’s, he oversaw the careers of Patty Loveless, Collin Raye, Doug Stone, Joe Diffie, Ty Herndon, the Sons of the Desert and many others. He later moved to Giant Records as President, where he guided the careers of Clay Walker, The Wilkinsons, Blake Shelton, Joe Nichols and Neal McCoy among others. 

Following his time at Epic Records, Johnson lead the A&R department of Curb Records, whose roster included Tim McGraw, Leann Rimes, Wynonna, Rodney Atkins Lee Brice, Clay Walker and Heidi Newfield, among others. Over the past three decades Johnson has carved out impressive niches in all aspects of the business as an engineer, mixer, musician, producer and top executive, but it’s his passion for creating or finding a well-crafted song that continues to inspire and motivate him with an energy and enthusiasm that is unparalleled in this business. “By far my greatest love is the song. Everything else is an attempt to powerfully capture and express the song in its truest sense to get it to the listener. I’ve been fortunate to be involved in several different aspects of the music business but if I could only do one, it would definitely be songwriting,” says Johnson, “Every other job I’ve had means absolutely nothing without a great song.”
