By the early 2000s, Robert Randolph began applying his dazzling steel guitar technique to secular music, and from that grew the Family Band. The group’s sound was so different than anything else around that they were soon packing New York City clubs. Their first album, 2002’s Live at the Wetlands, was recorded at the now defunct jam band haven, and was followed by four studio albums and another live set, each widening the band’s audience—they’ve long been regulars on the festival circuit—and broadening their stylistic range as well.

   Faren Rachels   

"Hailing from the very small town of Sparta Georgia (with a graduating class of only 12 people), Faren Rachels has undeniably country roots. Whether it’s owning and driving her own drag racing car by the age of twelve or putting her own band together while attending college at the University of Georgia, Rachels has shown that she has what it takes from a very early age. This drive led her to Nashville in 2012, and she has had no regrets. The singer/songwriter penned four of the five tracks on her new EP, which includes her first two singles “Free Drinks” and “If It Ain’t Fixed.” As she releases her long-awaited self titled EP, the spitfire performer will get to shine on stage this fall as she opens for one of country music’s hottest newcomers, Luke Combs, on his “Don’t Tempt Me With A Good Time” tour."


Chase Rice has been one of country music’s most exciting figures since arriving in Nashville. He co-wrote Florida Georgia Line’s megahit Diamond certified “Cruise” and his 2014 major label debut album, Ignite the Night. Rice scored two consecutive Top 5 hits from Ignite the Night with lead single “Ready Set Roll” (peaking at No. 5) and “Gonna Wanna Tonight” (peaking at No. 2). “Ready Set Roll” also earned its RIAA Platinum certification for selling more than 1,000,000 units. The 31-year-old singer-songwriter has had eclectic life for inspiration, playing football at the University of North Carolina, serving as a NASCAR pit crew member, even a role on a season of Survivor, all before finding success as singer/songwriter/entertainer.
