Trace Adkins is one of Country music's most accomplished entertainers.

The Grammy-nominated member of the Grand Ole Opry is also a television personality, actor and author. He is a spokesman for the Wounded Warrior Program, the American Red Cross and will soon complete his eighth USO Tour.
In 2011, he released his tenth studio album, Proud to Be Here. It was a great success debuting atop the Billboard Country Chart and featuring the Top Ten single, "Just Fishin'."
If you want to get to know Aaron Lewis, just listen to The Road. On his first full-length album, the Grammy Award-nominated, multi-platinum singer, songwriter, and guitarist tells one story after another. Echoing traditional country, some of those tales are hilarious and heartwarming, while others are pensive and personal.
In 2011, Lewis formally arrived in the country world with the release of his debut EP, Town Line. Highlighted by the success of gold-selling single "Country Boy" featuring the legendary George Jones and Charlie Daniels, the seven-song EP reached #1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and #7 on the Billboard Top 200 upon release.
The members of Southern Rock quintet, Blackberry Smoke are no strangers to hard work. Playing up to 250 dates each year, the guys are on the road more often than not, and they've seen tangible results of their labor. The band has toured with and befriended idols such as The Marshall Tucker Band, ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd and George Jones.
