Josey Milner is part small town teen, part road-worthy country starlet, and at only 17 years old, she turned heads and changed hearts with her debut US single, “Not Pretty Enough.” The song thrust Josey into the country music spotlight, launching her anti-bullying campaign with Angels and Doves, earning her a 2013 Independent Country Music Award nomination for Promising Young Artist, a Top 10 Hottest New Artist designation, and a Number One single on the world’s first independent country music chart, Indie World. Now, 18 and a recent Magna Cum Laude high school graduate, Josey has taken her initial successes to greater heights with “Cowgirls.”
“Cowgirls” was recorded at Awestruck Studios with her “Not Pretty Enough” production team of Micah Burdick and Matthew Russo (Hall and Oates.) Mastering engineer, Larry Gann (John Rich, Elton John) also played drums on the track, with Jimmy Mattingly (Dolly Parton, Reba, Garth) on fiddle and Smith Curry (Jason Aldean, Randy Travis) on pedal steel. The single was released to country radio in November 2013, and it reached #1 on the New Music Weekly country charts and Top 75 on Music Row! “Cowgirls” is a boot-kicking, foot stomping dance anthem that has country radio fans

Matt Austin grew up in the Detroit downriver area with a guitar-playing father but he didn’t gain interest in playing until his uncle from Texas moved to Michigan. He was inspired first by the sound of the blues guitar greats Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jimi Hendrix. Matt later fell in love with this new age country genre that is growing by leaps and bounds.
In 2013 along with releasing his new EP Matt Austin, was also direct support for Lee Brice, Brantley Gilbert, Uncle Kracker, Aaron Lewis, Josh Gracin, Charlie Worsham, Chase Rice and Jerrod Niemann.
MA has also performed in 2013 to thousands at many of the great country music festivals in Michigan such as 99.5 WYCD’s downtown hoedown and the Faster Horses series at Michigan international speedway.
Growing up in small town MN was the basis for Greg's love of country music.
Eden Valley, a farm community of about 800 people and no stop lights, is where he got his first guitar and wrote his first country song. He grew up on the edge of a main road, railroad track, and a corn field. It's a place where he learned to hunt, fish, play sports, and appreciate music of many genres. It's where he learned about honesty, family, friendship, and team work. All of which come into play in the songs he writes, in his live show and on a daily basis. If he's not out playing or writing country songs, he's in the woods with a bow, on a lake fishing bass, cruising dirt roads in his truck with his buddies, or out listening to area classic country bands.
Influenced by the vinyl record sounds from his father's collection of country greats such as Haggard, Strait, and Cash...Greg found that a strong song and a strong vocal is key to a good career. He was later influenced by the sounds and live shows of more modern day artists like Kenny Chesney, Brooks & Dunn, Tim McGraw, etc. and also the 90's country scene. He has worked hard over the years to develop his skills as a country performer and songwriter. He has been fortunate to have played in the company of many talented MN musicians, and opening shows for talented National acts such as
Jamey Johnson, Little Texas, Emerson Drive, Colt Ford, and Trent Willmon.
Doug Briney began like so many other musicians, singing in church. His first solo was when he was two years old. He continued singing throughout high school and then graduated in 1988 from Pacific Coast Baptist Bible College as a Vocal Music Major. During his college days, Doug had the opportunity to sing with a gospel quartet and travel all over the western half of the USA. He also had the unique opportunity to sing with the San Diego Opera Chorus. After graduating Doug went on and has spent the next 23 years leading worship in churches and pastoring.
Doug's new project "Super Country Cowboy" was released November 5, 2013. With a strong title track that is really a reflection of who Doug is as a person and cowboy this track blends traditional with an edge ready for radio. "I Get To" is a track Doug is extremely proud of and it has been a motto for his family for the past 23 years. Doug chose to cover a Brook's and Dunn classic "Believe" and brings a very raw emotion to the song. This project is truly a snapshot of Doug's life in every song.

Hannah Bethel grew up on country music and classic rock in the backwoods of Northern Michigan. At a young age, it was apparent that Hannah was a natural entertainer. She sang for anyone who would listen. She loved to make people laugh and think and feel the emotion of the songs. At fourteen she picked up a Squire acoustic guitar that her younger sister had ditched and soon after she was traveling the Upper Midwest, performing original music at fairs, bars, talent shows, coffee houses, shopping malls and country and western shows. Hannah self-released her first record at 17 and the following year she moved to Nashville, Tennessee.
Hannah is an avid writer and co-writer. She has written with some of Nashville’s finest songwriters, from big names to newcomers. One of those newcomers is Momentum Label Group artist, Rachele Lynae. Hannah had her first song cut in 2013 with Rachele’s sophomoric single, “Fishin’ For Something”, which received extensive radio play across the US. Hannah has recently been named one of CMA Close Up’s Who New to Watch in 2014.
