Multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley has forged his own brand of country music, combining classic country songwriting, influences of bluegrass instrumentation and the energy of rock ’n’ roll. Bentley’s sixth studio album, Home, was released in 2012 and debuted at number one. The record has spawned three consecutive chart-topping hits, marking 10 career number-one songs for Bentley as a singer and songwriter. Home also garnered Bentley three 2012 CMA Award nominations for Album of the Year and Single and Song of the Year for the title track. His five previous studio albums have sold more than five million copies and earned him an invitation to join the Grand Ole Opry.
With six top-twenty hits, two gold-certified albums and a 2009 award from Billboard Magazine for Best Male Country Artist, Justin Moore has already established himself as one of the fastest rising names in country music. Smash-hit singles like “Small Town USA” and “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away” have amplified Moore’s early success and secured a loyal and enthusiastic fan base.
Moore’s first, self-titled album was released in 2009. The album’s first single topped the charts and secured the record’s gold certification. The follow-up song, “Backwoods,” peaked at number six on Billboard’s country chart, followed by “How I Got to Be this Way,” another top-twenty hit. Moore’s sophomore album, Outlaws like Me, debuted at number one and featured his second number-one hit as well as two more top-twenty songs: “Bait a Hook” and “’Til My Last Day.”
Originally from Poyen, Arkansas (population: 272), Moore grew up working alongside his parents and grandfathers on the family farm. At age 18, he moved to Nashville to pursue a career in country music where he joined forces with Jeremy Stover, his writing partner and producer. Moore is currently working on his third album which is set for 2013. The album’s first single, “Point at You,” was released earlier this month.
