Chase Bryant is of the most celebrated new artists in today’s country music landscape, 24-year-old Chase Bryant was raised in Orange Grove, TX. Chase has deep roots in country music, his grandfather played piano for Roy Orbison and Waylon Jennings. Bryant’s second consecutive hit “Little Bit of You” rose to #3. His guitar-wielding Top 10 debut single “Take It On Back” spent 15 consecutive weeks on the CMT Hot 20 Countdown, seven weeks on theGAC Top 20 Country Countdown, and was a Top 20 Most Watched Video on VEVO TV Nashville. Internationally, the single was a Top20 hit in Canada and earned the #1 spot on Australia’s CMC Countdown.
Josh Phillips, born and raised on a 25-acre farm in the small town of Sanford, North Carolina, playing baseball was Josh’s first love. With dreams of playing professionally, he enrolled at Pfeiffer University as a member of the baseball team upon his completion of high school. After an injury plagued first year, he transferred to Pitt Community College. However, a second career torn meniscus forced Josh to hang up the cleats. It was then he started singing for the first time in his life.
Three years after he started his new career, he made the move to Music City. Since being here, his band has had the opportunity to serve as an opening act for Sam Hunt, Cole Swindell, Tyler Farr, Luke Combs and Colt Ford. His musical influences include Hank Williams, Jr., George Strait and Garth Brooks. Josh is currently working on a five-song EP that will be released later this year. Follow him on social media at @imjoshphillips to keep track of his musical happenings.
Dylan Schneider is wise beyond his years, especially when it comes to his songwriting. But perhaps even more impressive is Schneider’s ability and willingness to connect with fans on a personal level. “I used to freak out if an artist would respond or interact with me. It’s incredibly important to me that I do the same with my fans.” That love for fans has helped grow Schneider a collective social following of over 1,000,000.
After the release of the debut EP Wannabe in August 2016, his follow up EP 17 was released in October of the same year, landing at #3 on the iTunes Country Album Charts.
