Former front man for blues band Hootie and the Blowfish, Darius Rucker is no stranger to the spotlight.

Charleston, SC 1966—a title which pays tribute to one of Rucker's biggest influences, Radney Foster—includes the multiple-week number-one hit single “Come Back Song” and his current Top 10 single, “This.”

Co-headliner Rodney Atkins has had wonderful response from his second album, If You’re Going Through Hell, which was released in 2006. Its first two singles, “If You’re Going Through Hell” and “Watching You,” each spent four weeks at the top of the country music charts. Both songs were also named as the number one country song of the year by Billboard magazine.
The album, which has since been certified platinum in the United States, has produced two more number one singles in “These Are My People” and “Cleaning This Gone,” as well as “Invisibly Shaken,” which peaked at number forty-one. A twelfth single, “It’s America,” was released in November 2008 as the first release from his third album, It’s America, and the song became his fifth number one charting single and was performed on numerous awards shows and national TV shows. In the summer of 2010, Atkins released “Farmer’s Daughter,” his seventh top five country hit.
New personality Frankie Ballard showcases a bluesy, rocking edge to the country scene. His talents as a vocalist, songwriter, instrumentalist, and showman have already made him one of the genre’s most memorable new artists. His first single, “Tell Me You Get Lonely,” became a top-five video chart success.
