Performing Live

Chase Matthew

Chase Matthew

Warner Music Nashville’s Chase Matthew is on the fast track to becoming one of Nashville’s hottest newcomers. A Music City native, Matthew began his career by independently paving a path for himself in the genre, due to his infectious personality, rowdy live performances and authentic, relatable music – amassing a massive 450M+ global career streams (with more than 150M global streams on his first RIAA GOLD-certified smash, “County Line”), garnering 1M+ followers across social media and being named a HITS Magazine “One to Watch.”

Since releasing his debut album, ‘Born For This,’ earlier this year, Matthew has been busy selling out
venues across the nation on his headline ‘Born For This’ Tour, recently making his hometown headline debut in Nashville to a SOLD-OUT crowd of more than 1,600 fans. His latest single, “The Way I Am,” is out now, and fans can expect more new music from this Nashville riser in the coming months.

Chayce Beckham

Chayce Beckham

Chayce Beckham is one of the most buzzed about newcomers in country music today, having won over millions of hearts while competing on Season 19 of American Idol. From the first audition, superstar Katy Perry highlighted how Chayce’s gravely vocals sound like “the heart of America.” Armed with a determination to make something of himself and the unwavering support of his family, Chayce auditioned for the competition show after undergoing a particularly difficult year to ultimately become the first-ever show winner to claim the title with an original song — kickstarting his journey to fulfilling his lifelong dream of becoming a singer, songwriter and entertainer.

Following his first time onstage after performing in his fifth-grade talent show, the southern Californian began teaching himself guitar, eventually finding his way into a Reggae band (while earning his wages at a construction equipment rental company). Influenced by artists such as Chris Stapleton, Tyler Childers, and Kolton Moore & The Clever Few, and knowing that country music was where his heart
called home, Chayce turned to Instagram as a creative outlet for his more intimate songs, sharing his
original material.

With his family, his hometown of Apple Valley and now America behind him, the mellow 24-year-old with the alluring rasp recently released his debut song, “23.” The song is a semi-autobiographical account of his struggles with alcohol and of the lows it can take a person. After its May release, the song quickly earned the top spot on both the iTunes Country and all genre charts. Now signed to 19 Recordings in partnership with BBR Music Group/Wheelhouse Records and finding his home in Nashville,
Chayce is ready to dig into new music and share his signature sound with his legions of fans.

Spencer Crandall

Spencer Crandall

Unfiltered. Unconventional. And above all, unapologetic. Those are the defining traits of a whole new generation of Country star – and Spencer Crandall is one of them. As one of Country’s most progressive new talents, self-made and as dynamic as they come, Crandall has no time to say “sorry” for his raw, soul-baring stories. Driven toward greatness, he’s got no remorse for his big dreams, and pulls no punches with his ever-evolving sound. The Nashville based artist has spent years combining pop’s untamed energy with the confessional lyricism of Country, opening up territory no one before him even knew existed – and with his ambitious new 20-track album, Western, the frontier expands again.

Growing up in Denver with a tight knit family, the creative powerhouse was taught hard work
and dedication, and learned his lessons well – even playing football in college. But when injuries ended his career, the standout athlete was officially out of his comfort zone. Fully embracing his natural, genre-defying instincts, with ultra-smooth vocals, deeply-personal themes and hot-blooded performances, Crandall now counts 1.2M monthly Spotify listeners, 250M total career streams, more than 2.6M followers on TikTok, and fan engagement so off the charts it drives sold-out shows around the nation. He released three albums before Western, made his Grand Ole Opry debut in 2022, and continues pushing toward the ultimate goal of a sold-out stadium performance – Western is just the next step.

Tyler Rich

Tyler Rich

Northern California-raised, Nashville-rooted Tyler Rich found his love of music gathered around a Christmas tree alongside family singing holiday classics and Creedence Clearwater Revival. Fast forward to graduating college with a degree in Economics, Tyler moved to LA to pursue a different game of numbers – music – exploring various genres with songwriting and bands before taking the leap as a solo artist. Since, Tyler has amassed nearly half a billion global streams to date and notched three No. 1 hits on SiriusXM’s The Highway with his debut album TWO THOUSAND MILES (The Valory Music Co.), featuring GOLD-certified “The Difference” plus subsequent releases “Better Than You’re Used To,” “A Little Bit of You” and “Trucks Don’t Lie.”

In 2022, Tyler joined forces with one of Canada’s most successful bilingual singer-songwriters, Marie-Mai for a duet on “Thinkin’ We’re In Love,” which serviced as the name of his headline tour. With his newly released I KNOW YOU DO EP, Tyler gives fans the best of both worlds fusing the spirit of youth with an easy-going buzz. Produced by The Cadillac Three’s Jaren Johnston, the three-track collection puts the many layers of the heartfelt singer/songwriter on full display. Tyler’s music embodies the feelings all people have in common – the need for acceptance, devotion and a place to call their own – and that empathetic spirit extends to animals too. With Rich Rescues, Tyler visits local shelters while out on the road to raise awareness for pet adoption. For a full list of tour dates and more, visit Tylerrich.com.

David Morris

David Morris

David Morris is a country artist, singer-songwriter and rapper from Charleston, West Virginia. His sound fuses traditional country music with modern pop and hip-hop creating a lane that is unique to him. He’s seen recent success with the release of his 2022 single “Carrying Your Love” which interpolates a 1997 George Strait classic. The song went viral on tiktok in July of 2022 and peaked at #3 worldwide on the platform.

The song, along with its follow up “Dutton Ranch Freestyle,” pushed David onto the Billboard charts where he peaked at #12 emerging artist, #3 in digital sales country, and #12 all genre digital sales in September of 2022. “Carrying Your Love” received press coverage from Bobby Bones, The Boot, E! Online, Entertainment Tonight, Yahoo, Today.com, Buzzfeed, People.com, Insider, CBS, and so much more! That song, along with “Dutton Ranch Freestyle ” have also been featured on SiriusXM The Highway, TikTok Hits, and Sirius Hits 1. Needless to say, David has had quite the year, and he is finishing it out on tour opening for Kidd G and Jelly Roll through the fall season.

His recent viral success comes off the heels of his latest June 2022 EP “Hometown Heartbreak”. Which is a follow up to his 2020 debut album “Red, White & American Blues” which features the stand outs “Who Hurt You”, “Smalltown Queen” and “Does He Know About Us”. David’s catalog has over 100 million streams on Spotify and over 55 million on Apple Music. His latest single “I Hate This Job” can be heard on all streaming platforms today!

Known for his homegrown visuals, his signature HEARTLAND hat, and camo pants David is ready for the spotlight. He recently inked a partnership with Sony Music Publishing and has been in the studio working on his next project as well as writing for other artists. His flashy style is accompanied with a humble outlook. He says, “The greatest honor as an artist is seeing your music resonate with people. Hearing that a song can comfort someone, or inspire someone is the real reward”.
