Like Home” is one of the most focused albums that Sheryl Crow has
written. Her debut album on Warner Bros. Records features her current
single, “Callin’ Me When I’m Lonely,” and her Top 20 hit, “Easy.” Full
of great storytelling that features some of the most powerful and
heartfelt vocals of Crow’s career, “Feels Like Home” is an album which
this proud daughter of Kennett, MO, was born to make. “Feels Like Home”
captures the sound of a great and established artist enjoying a kind of
fresh start. The album really got started with Crow, Brad Paisley and
Chris DuBois – one of Paisley’s frequent collaborators – penning one of
the albums’ standout tracks, “Waterproof Mascara,” a stunning song that
recalls classics by some of country’s greatest female
vocalists. Gradually, Crow began working with a series of collaborators
that included her longtime guitar player and frequent co-writer, Jeff
Trott (with whom she co-wrote such past Crow classics as “If It Makes
You Happy,” “My Favorite Mistake” and “Every Day Is A Winding Road”), as
well as many of Nashville’s finest writers, including DuBois, Luke
Laird, Natalie Hamby and Chris Stapleton, among others. Crow also
credits her co-producer Justin Niebank as a key collaborator on “Feels
Like Home.” For Crow, making her first album for a Nashville label is an
experience she won’t forget. “Feels Like Home” was primarily recorded
above her barn in Nashville, TN, allowing her daily life to be her
primary inspiration. Everything about making the record felt like home
for Crow.
Georgia Line has skyrocketed since releasing consecutive, multi-week
No. 1 smashes in the U.S. and Canada, with the Gold-certified “Round
Here,” Platinum-certified “Get Your Shine On” and 6X Platinum-certified
“Cruise.” Breaking the record for the longest No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot
Country Songs Chart, “Cruise” has sold more than 6.1 million downloads
in the U.S. and is the second best-selling country single ever,
according to SoundScan. FGL is the only act in history to join Brooks
& Dunn in having their first three singles hit No. 1 for multiple
weeks each. Also poised to succeed, FGL’s new emotionally-fueled Top
15-and-rising single, “Stay,” showcases another side of their unique
sound and tight harmonies. Amassing international appeal, the duo
recently crossed a new career threshold – tallying more than 10 million
tracks sold worldwide from their debut album “Here’s To The Good
Times” (Republic Nashville), which has been certified Platinum in the
U.S. and Gold in Canada. On Nov. 25, FGL will release “Here’s To The
Good Times…This Is How We Roll,” a deluxe version of their chart-topping
debut, that will feature five new songs, including a collaboration with
Luke Bryan; “Cruise” (Remix), featuring Nelly; a documentary on the
making of the album; all official music videos with behind-the-scenes
footage; and the previously unreleased video for “It’z Just What We Do.”
“Along with radio, sales and touring success, the talented twosome also
has racked up several industry awards and nominations. Comprised
of Tyler Hubbard (Monroe, GA) and Brian Kelley (Ormond Beach, FL), FGL
is currently on their first headline run, Here’s To The Good Times Tour
2013, breaking venue sales records nationwide with sold-out shows on all
stops to date. 
Nashville recording artist Darius Rucker released his third country
album, “True Believers,” in May. The album is his third consecutive
album to top the Billboard Country albums chart and features the
Platinum-certified No. 1 single, “Wagon Wheel.” Rucker’s first two
country albums – “Learn To Live” and “Charleston, SC 1966” – produced
five No. 1 singles, including “Come Back Song,” “This,” “Alright,” “It
Won’t Be Like This For Long” and “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It.”
In 2012, Rucker achieved a personal goal and childhood dream when he was
inducted into the Grand Ole Opry. He recently announced dates for his
2014 True Believers Tour. 
COUNTRY AWARDS is executive-produced by Bob Bain (TEEN CHOICE 2013,
“Kids’ Choice Awards”). Fletcher Foster, Paul Flattery and Tisha Fein
serve as producers. Greg Sills is supervising producer.
