The Oak Ridge Boys –The four-part harmonies and upbeat songs of The Oak Ridge Boys have spawned dozens of Country hits and the No. 1 smash “Elvira”, earning them Grammy, Dove, Country Music Association (CMA), and Academy of Country Music awards and a host of other industry and fan accolades. Every time they step before an audience, the Oak Ridge Boys bring four decades of charted singles, and 50 years of tradition, to a stage show widely acknowledged as among the most exciting anywhere.

Diamond Rio – Diamond Rio has accomplished much throughout their lengthy career. In addition to two compilations worth of hits, they’ve sold over 10 million albums, racked up 14 Grammy nominations and a 2011 Grammy win for their latest album The Reason, 15 consecutive CMA nominations for Vocal Group of the Year – more than any country group in CMA history, two-time Academy of Country Music and four-time CMA Vocal Group of the Year awards.

Paul Revere and the Raiders – The magic chemistry of Paul Revere’s personality has been a major factor in the Raiders’ rise to popularity. His sixth sense for pleasing an audience has created, over a period of time, a highly polished act built on warmth and spontaneity. During their career, Paul Revere and the Raiders have had 23 consecutive hit singles. Some of which include, “Louie, Louie,” “Steppin’ Out,” “Indian Reservation,” and “Just Like Me.”

Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers – Over the course of a four-decade career that has taken the Gatlin Brothers from dusty Texas stages to White House performances, from Broadway to Grammy Awards to the top of the country charts, there has been one unifying element: music. The Gatlin Brothers have scored more than a dozen Top 40 hits, including "Denver," "Houston (Means That I'm One Day Closer To You)," and "She Used To Be Somebody's Baby.”

Lonestar – This year marks Lonestar’s 20th Anniversary and they are recording a new album to celebrate. The Texas-bred band, known for merging their country roots with strong melodies and rich vocals, has combined sales in excess of 10 million album units. Lonestar has achieved 10 No. 1 country hits including “No News,” “Come Crying to Me” and “Amazed.” The band’s awards include a 1999 ACM Single of The Year and Song of the Year for “Amazed” and the 2001 CMA Vocal Group of the Year.
