After almost 15 years at the top of his format, the three-time ACM “Entertainer of the Year” has seen trends come and go. Aldean has helped bring a few out of the shadows, making the mainstream’s first contact with hard rock Hicktown, hip-hop Dirt Road Anthem, and R&B Burnin’ It Down. He continues to hold his ground making modern albums with an old-school soul—most recently with his ninth studio album, 9, which debuted at the top spot on Billboard’s Country Albums chart. Notably, all seven of Aldean’s previous studio albums have been certified Platinum, while bolstering 15 billion streams and more than 20 million albums sold. Known as a member of Country’s Elite Headliners, Aldean’s past tours are nearing legendary status as he is one of the first of few acts in the genre to sell-out multiple stadiums.

Recognized as Billboard’s Top New Country Artist of 2020, an Amazon Music Breakthrough artist, one of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in Music plus listed in Variety’s 2020 Young Hollywood Impact Report, Barrett is proving why she’s “the face of Gen-Z Country.” Her meteoric 5X Platinum debut I Hope was the most-streamed Country song of 2020, highlighted as one of the Best Songs of the year by the Associated Press and Billboard, winner of CMT’s 2020 Breakthrough Video of the Year award, while catapulting to the Top 3 on Billboard’s all genre Hot 100 chart.
Hailing from the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina, John Morgan brings a blue-collar toughness to Country that’s pulled straight from the only life he knows. Inspired by six-string legends, John began playing at eight years old before touring the Bluegrass-festival circuit with his family band. Roughly a year after deciding to follow is passion and move to Nashville, John crossed paths with Kurt Allison and Tully Kennedy, two incredible songwriters and longtime bandmates of Country superstar Jason Aldean. The hard-rocking Country tastemakers immediately recognized John’s potential and Aldean agreed. After cutting several songs written by John, including his latest history-making single with Carrie Underwood, “If I Didn’t Love You,” Aldean signed John to Night Train Records. As John works toward his debut, he has an invaluable all access pass as he joins the superstar’s Back In The Saddle Tour. His first song, “Coldest Beer In Town” is available now.
