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.

The EP showcases the band’s high energy personalities with their lighter-swaying tunes including She’s Got A Way and The Cotton’s Gettin’ High, a party anthem of a good ole southern Saturday night. With enviable talent they have held their own opening for renowned bands such as ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kid Rock, Eric Church, Shooter Jennings and many others.

They can rock out on guitar like Skynyrd with explosive crescendos but, are still able to sing to the hearts of many with their vulnerable ballads like Eric Church. The Cheaters have sold thousands of records and played over 1,000 shows throughout the U.S.A., in addition to successfully performing in Europe, Guam and Japan.
Hailing from Tucson, Arizona, Haeley may look like an angel, but there’s more to her than meets the eye. This girl knows how to get down country-style and isn’t afraid to show it. Her new EP Hoot n’ Holler showcases Haeley’s infectious personality with her boot-stompin’ tunes including Boom in the Boondocks and Shakin’ in Your Boots, a vindictive anthem of a girl done wrong. While Haeley has been performing her whole life, her first big break came when she was just 16 when her American Idol Season 9 audition resulted in a spot among the Top 20 finalists. This success gave her the confidence boost she needed to “hit the ground running” in terms of her career. Following Idol, Haeley made the move to Nashville and since then, she has been writing and performing non-stop and has been taking part in several industry events, including performing and signing autographs during the CMA Music Festival and playing regularly at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge in Nashville. Haeley is on her way to becoming country pop’s next darling with her genuine optimism, infectious effervescent personality and enthusiasm for singing that cannot be deterred.

Country music is a soundtrack of the south. With the artistry of vocalist and songwriter Amanda Lamb, the compass points to Southern California and the sun swept shores of Orange County. Amanda’s new single, “We Were Here,” is an invitation to a coastline drive and an exuberant nod to her West coast roots. Her wistful “Endless Summer” evokes a vivid panorama of rusted Woodies, shivering palm trees, abandoned surfboards and deserted cottages.
Growing up in Newport Beach, humming along to Dixie Chicks and Shania Twain on the radio, Amanda Lamb was entranced by the authenticity of country music. “The stories in these songs sounded real,” she says. When she began her personal musical journey, she recalls her grandmother making a perceptive suggestion. “She said, ‘Why aren't you singing country?’” Recording in Nashville, she realized that her Grandmother had been right. “Country Music feels more comfortable than anything I have ever done,” she says. “It feels like home.”
