Here’s a little bit about each performer!
Brett Young: This Nashville-born baseball player-turned-country singer has been in the game for about a decade, starting out soft with 2003’s Songs Of Sorrow and leading up to 2013’s On Fire album. Get familiar with the country crooner by listening to tracks like “Kiss By Kiss” and “Pretend I Never Loved You.”
Dinner And A Suit: This Nashville pop/rock trio are masters at creating catchy, can’t-get-out-of-your-head-for-days hooks reminiscent of Coldplay, Jack’s Mannequin, and The Fray. Lose yourself in tracks like “Love Is Risky” and “Too Late,” both from their debut album Since Our Departure.
Asher Monroe: Former V-Factory member Asher Monroe has spent the last couple of years charming audiences with his good looks and onstage swagger, plus pop anthems like “Hush Hush,” “Why Worry,” and club banger “Here With You.” Look out for Asher’s Chris Brown-produced debut disc later this year.
Royal Teeth: New Orleans indie poppers Royal Teeth, led by Nora Patterson and vocal partner Gary Larsen, are a fresh-faced, cute-as-a-button bunch with a penchant for joyful melodies and quirky videos. Now out with their first EP, Act Naturally, the six-piece are prepping a debut LP and are definitely charmed the socks off everyone at last spring’s SXSW. Get to know Royal Teeth with the band’s new “Wild” video below.
