Shinedown has built their name on rock songs both brutal in power and epic in scope. Since the band’s inception, they have released five albums: Leave a Whisper (2003), Us and Them (2005), The Sound of Madness (2008), Amaryllis (2012) and Threat to Survival (2015). With their latest album, Shinedown – consisting of Brent Smith (vocals), Barry Kerch (drums), Eric Bass (bass/piano) and Zach Myers (guitar) – veered away from a densely layered sonic palette and took a more direct approach. Featuring lead single “Cut the Cord,” a blistering track that shot to #1 on Active Rock radio, Threat to Survival finds the multi-platinum-selling band achieving their most powerful sound ever and offering up their most important album to date.

Shinedown continues to bring both staggering musicality and a powerful emotional complexity to their music. “There’s always been a certain level of positivity with Shinedown—that’s even where our name came from,” says Smith. “There’s a sense that everything that’s bad has a little bit of good to it, just like everything that’s good has a little bit of bad. Our songs address the reality that we’re all going to die at some point and that sometimes the willingness to survive is all you have. It’s about holding onto that sheer will to live and getting through whatever might come your way because the legacy that you leave behind is what will carry you on to your next journey.”

A decade ago, Black Stone Cherry made an attention-grabbing self-titled debut near their hometown of Edmonton, KY. The band – consisting of Chris Robertson (guitar/vocals), Ben Wells (guitar/vocals), Jon Lawhon (bass/vocals) and John Fred Young (drums/vocals) – proclaimed the arrival of a vibrant and exciting new force in Southern rock 'n’ roll. They played with fire, sang with brimstone and had plenty of cajones – what other young band, after all, is willing to take on something as iconic as the Yardbirds' “Shapes of Things” on their debut album? Flash forward nine years and the BSC crew has released four studio albums: Black Stone Cherry (2006), Folklore and Superstition (2008), Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea (2011) and Magic Mountain (2014), as well as three EPs, which spawned rock radio favorites like “Lonely Train,” “Blind Man,” “White Trash Millionaire” and “Me and Mary Jane.” BSC has charted eight singles on the U.S. Mainstream Rock Tracks charts and had their last three albums hit #1 on the U.K. Rock charts.

Halestorm is an American rock band from Pennsylvania, consisting of lead vocalist and guitarist Lzzy Hale, her brother drummer and percussionist Arejay Hale, guitarist Joe Hottinger and bassist Josh Smith. The group's self-titled debut album was released in 2009, The Strange Case Of... came next in 2012, followed by Into the Wild Life in 2015. “On the last record, we hit all these crazy milestones,” Hale says. “All of a sudden the world was aware of us so we celebrated unabashedly.” Indeed, “Freak Like Me” and “Love Bites (So Do I)” both reached #1 on Active Rock charts, making Halestorm the first ever female-fronted band to top the format’s airplay ranking. In addition, the band won a Grammy for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance for “Love Bites (So Do I).” The accomplishments didn’t stop there. Hale collaborated with “America’s Got Talent” star Lindsey Stirling on the EDM song “Shatter Me” and performed with country maverick Eric Church at the CMT Awards, demonstrating her versatile vocals mix with any genre.

Whiskey Myers is an American country music band. They make honest music. Loud and proud, they sing about what they know with a refreshing directness and clarity. Some call it rebel music, but it’s more like every day soul. Their songs are stories, with characters and situations that are immediately relatable. Through the quality of these songs, and their undeniable power in concert and on record, the band has attracted a devoted army of outspoken fans who pack venues, sing the band’s praises online, and continue to make Whiskey Myers a growing word-of-mouth sensation. Whiskey Myers’ most recent full-length, Firewater, was released on their own Wiggy Thump imprint in the spring of 2011. It continues to sell steadily, enjoying a remarkable run on the Texas Music Charts that culminated with its third single “Anna Marie” reaching # 1.
