Lucas Hoge: Some people are just born communicators and Lucas Hoge has that gift. Fans know this because Hoge's  album Dirty South hit No. 1 on the Billboard Country Album Sales chart during its debut week. Whether he’s performing for troops overseas, sharing his love for the great outdoors with fellow sportsmen at a Bass Pro/Cabela’s gathering or writing another song for a hit TV show, Hoge has that rare ability to find common ground with just about anyone and draw them into his world.

Hoge has traveled overseas for the past 10 years performing for our troops. He’s written TV show theme songs for Discovery Network, Animal Planet and scored shows for HBO, he's appeared in a commercial with Faith Hill for the NFL campaign. His single “Power of Garth” was his first TOP 30 on Billboard reaching #29. Hoge was the very best he could be on the Ryman stage when he was asked to make his Grand Ole Opry debut and Hoge has returned to perform on the Opry many times since.

Lucas has performed his original Christmas songs on the Hallmark channel and William Shatner (Captain James T Kirk) recently cut Lucas' song "Should've Loved" for his latest album. Lucas' current single “That’ll Be The Day” is currently at country radio at #44. With a #1 album, a restless creative spirit, abundance of Midwestern charm and a work ethic that won’t let him slow down, it looks like the best is yet to come!
Keesy Timmer: Keesy Timmer is an American country music songwriter from Washington State, currently residing in Nashville, Tennesse. He is a staff writer for Average Joes Entertainment’s publishing company and Average Zjs Music Publishing. Keesy has had charting success with Kelsea Ballerini on her world wide hit "Yeah Boy" reaching Gold single status and remaining on the top 40 charts for nine months, including six weeks at top 5. Keesy is an energetic story teller who loves connecting with his audience.
Jordan Rager: Jordan Rager has been through it all. He's weathered every possible high and low, and so his upcoming releases feel not only special but downright triumphant. Expected later this year, the collection of songs was born out of his willingness to step back and reassess his life. Its themes of celebration of small-town life, heartbreak, love, loss and simply living in the moment are woven into a rich, electric guitar-soaked snapshot of what it means to be country right down to his core.

A down-home country boy in every way, Rager was born and raised in the tiny rural community of Loganville, Georgia, which lies just 30-miles west of Atlanta. He's the son of a preacher man, and his early roots of singing in the church instilled him with both a great sense of worship and an unwavering passion for performing. It was one crisp Sunday morning when he was a wide-eyed 11-year-old that Rager's life changed forever; at the urging of his father, he took to the church stage for the first time to sing and was immediately struck by music's innate power. And he's never looked back.

During a transitional period of his life, Rager took nearly two years to just write. He soon found himself more creatively energized than he had been in a very long time. “Going back home never entered my mind. Someone once told me when I was really young when I had just gotten started playing music,” he recalls. “They said, ‘If you have a plan B, you might as well just go with that, because this career path takes an immense amount of dedication. You’re going to have days when you feel like you want to give up.’"

Musically, he digs even deeper into his well of influences these days. “I’ve gotten to touch on a lot of influences that I never really got a chance to work with. Country music is my first heart and always will be,” he explains. “But I’ve got a lot of influences that range from the different styles of rock ‘n roll to punk-rock. I grew up in church, so I have a lot of gospel influence. I feel like I pull inspiration from anything I’ve ever listened to and enjoyed.”
Phillip Lammonds: Phillip Lammonds is a songwriter and talented instrumentalist from the musically rich mountains of North Carolina. From his childhood in the mountains to his time in the South Carolina Lowcountry, it was this melting pot of sounds and rhythms that formed his musical sensibilities. When pressed, Phillip describes his musical and writing styles as “raking through a toolbox in the dark.” In his opinion,“Songs aren’t really written, they are caught like a fish. They’re out there swimming around. But they aren’t always biting.” 

After college, Phillip was a founder of The Blue Dogs, a beloved and critically acclaimed bluegrass and rock inspired jam band. He then started his family in Pawley’s Island, South Carolina while working as a fishing guide, a falconer, and the owner of the islands Southeby’s real estate company. All the while, Phillip wrote songs and traveled to Nashville to pitch them. After fifteen years, fifty or so trips to Nashville, and cuts on major artists—Hootie and the Blowfish, Josh Turner, Craig Morgan—Phillip moved to music city to pursue songwriting full time. He stepped onto the scene with a publishing deal from Curb Entertainment and a back catalog nearly five hundred songs strong. Phillip’s songs have been recorded by artists like Lee Brice, Jerrod Niemann, Darius Rucker, Blake Shelton, Edwin McCain, Craig Morgan, Kellie Pickler, Mo Pitney, and Dylan Scott.
