McCreery’s 2018 album Seasons Change marked a career milestone for the 24-year-old artist. Its leading, RIAA-Platinum certified single “Five More Minutes” earned McCreery his first No. 1 song. The second and current single “This Is It” can be heard on airwaves across the country, while the music video featuring footage from his recent wedding surpassed 4 million views in just 20 days. The album, released on Triple Tigers Records, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart with more than 40,000 album sold in its first week, making it one of the top-selling country album debut weeks of the year. Seasons Change was McCreery’s fourth consecutive album to debut at No. 1 on a Billboard Album chart. It also received praise from the Tennessean, Billboard, Huffington Post and Rolling Stone, including being named to their list of the 25 Best Country and Americana Albums of 2018 So Far.
Unlike his previous releases, Seasons Change showcases McCreery’s songwriting talents on all 11 tracks, featuring collaborations with Jessi Alexander (Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton), Monty Criswell (Eric Church, Darius Rucker, George Strait), David Lee Murphy (Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Jake Owen) and more. With themes such as losing loved ones, moving out on his own, falling in love and coming of age, Seasons Change is a reflective and honest narrative of McCreery’s experience navigating life in his early twenties. The album was produced by Frank Rogers, Derek Wells and Aaron Eshuis.
Allen is currently finalizing his first full-length album, due out later this year via Stoney Creek Records. Last October, Allen released his self-titled debut EP which earned him recognition as an “artist to watch in 2018” by Rolling Stone, Billboard, Pandora, Sounds Like Nashville and more, in addition to a spot in the The Bobby Bones Show’s Class of 2018. The personable singer, which fans have come to know via his “Jimmie Allen All In" series, is currently climbing the charts on Country radio with his Top 30 debut single “Best Shot.”
A Richardson, TX native, Morgan has written songs for Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Dierks Bentley and Maren Morris, and she's penned more than a dozen album cuts for Brett Eldredge, including the No. 1, RIAA-Gold certified singles “Lose My Mind” and “Beat of the Music," which earned the BMI Country Song of the Year Award in 2015. Morgan's solo-penned “Your Hurricane” premieres on digital streaming services today, and her debut album Borrowed Heart, produced by Paul Moak (John Paul White, Marc Broussard, Caitlyn Smith), bows October 5.
