With chart-toppers like "Pickup Man," "Third Rock From the Sun" and "John Deere Green," plus thirteen albums and over twenty Top 10 singles to his credit, Joe Diffie has little to prove at this point in his career, yet he still has a fire in his belly to make good country music. A renowned songwriter in his own right who recently turned his focus back to writing after years on the road, Diffie has written hits for artists like Tim McGraw, Conway Twitty, and Jo Dee Messina, and has cuts on upcoming projects for X Factor winner Tate Stevens, Dylan Scott, and Tyler Farr among others. He is also hard at work on an album of brand new material, due out later this year.
Carrying the torch in the footsteps of George Jones and Waylon Jennings, Mark Chesnutt's trademarked voice has helped shape genuine country music. The Texas native has 14 No. 1 hits, 23 top ten singles, four platinum albums and five gold records. It's hits like "Too Cold At Home," "Blame It On Texas," "It's A Little Too Late," "Bubba Shot The Jukebox" and "Old Flames Have New Names" that have made Chesnutt a fixture on country radio and in the honky-tonks across America.
Country music songstress Lorrie Morgan kicked off 2016 with Letting Go Slow, her first new solo album in five years. She has sold over 6 million records, and charted more than 25 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Track charts. No. 1 hits include "Five Minutes," "What Part of No" and "I Didn't Know My Own Strength." Born in Nashville to Grand Ole Opry legend George Morgan, Morgan made her debut on the Grand Ole Opry stage at age 13, later being inducted into the Opry cast when she was just 24.
