When Rascal Flatts closed the first leg of the “Nothing Like This Tour” in October 2010, the band had performed for more than 650,000 fans in all of 2010, including earlier shows on their “Unstoppable Tour.” Since their touring career began, they have sold over 6 million concert tickets.
Rascal Flatts – Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney – debuted their first album on Big Machine Records, Nothing Like This, in November at #1 on the country album sales chart and became one of only four country acts to debut six consecutive studio albums at #1. Since their musical debut in 2000, the band has sold 20 million albums and 25 million digital downloads and delivered 12 #1 singles to the top of the chart. Rascal Flatts is the most awarded country group of the past decade with nearly 40 trophies from the American Country Awards, Academy of Country Music, American Music Awards, Country Music Association, People’s Choice Awards and more.
Capitol Records Nashville artist Luke Bryan leaps into the New Year still enjoying the success of his current album, Doin’ My Thing, which contains his co-penned, #1 hits “Do I” and “Rain Is A Good Thing” and current smash “Someone Else Calling You Baby,” as well as his recent award accolades. Bryan was named the 2010 Academy of Country Music’s Top New Artist and Top New Solo Vocalist, both fan-voted, and won a 2010 CMT trophy for the fan-voted USA Weekend Breakthrough Video of The Year for his “Do I” music clip.

Accomplished singer/songwriter and 2011 GRAMMY® Award nominee Chris Young has topped the charts with back-to-back #1 singles with “Gettin’ You Home” and “The Man I Want to Be.” His current Top 5 single, “Voices,” also from his acclaimed sophomore album, The Man I Want to Be, is quickly moving up the charts. With his rich, warm baritone and penchant for writing classic slice-of-life songs, Young emerged as an immediate fan-favorite when his self-titled first album became the highest-selling debut by a new country male in the year of its release. In 2010 Chris was named the winner of the Breakthrough Songwriter Award at the 22nd Annual MusicRow Awards and received his first CMA Award nomination as New Artist of the Year. He recently earned his first GRAMMY nomination for Best Male Country Vocal Performance for his co-penned “Gettin’ You Home.” For more information, visit www.chrisyoungcountry.com.
