Nashville Tennessee’s SONY/SKYDANCER Entertainment Recording artist, Jeff Bates has been a staple in country music for over 10 years, delivering numerous hits such as “Long Slow Kisses”, “The Love Song”, and “I Wanna Make You Cry”. He has had more than 7 Billboard chart topping singles, four secular country music albums, and two inspirational albums. On his most recent project titled “Me and Conway”, Bates honors his idol, the late Conway Twitty. The album includes his own versions of six Conway classics as well as six new JB songs that he believes are appropriate for the tribute to the legend. Loretta Lynn joins Bates on the Conway / Lynn classic duet, “After The Fire Is Gone.
Jamie O’Neal came to town with her powerhouse vocals and unique flare for the craft of songwriting, which opened many doors and created countless contacts throughout Music City. O'Neal has penned cuts for LeAnn Rimes, Martina McBride, Reba, Cece Winans and more. After crossing paths with Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson, Clay Walker), the famed producer helped the young rising singer/songwriter land her first record deal with Mercury Nashville, which resulted with the release of her critically acclaimed and platinum selling album Shiver.
O’Neal went on to earn the title of the ACM's Top New Female Vocalist award and was named the Top New Country Artist by Billboard. Two of her four Grammy nominations came as a songwriter, for Best Country Song for “There Is No Arizona” and its chart-topping follow-up, “When I Think About Angels.”
In addition to headlining her own shows, O’Neal has toured with Reba McEntire, Kenny Chesney, Martina McBride, Alan Jackson and more. She has also landed songs on the soundtracks of Bridget Jones’ Diary and When We Were Soldiers singing a duet with Michael McDonald as well as having Idina Menzel record a song she wrote for the ABC smash Desperate Housewives.
Turning heads with his unmistakably soulful and Southern-as-molasses sound, Andy Griggs has made a name for himself in Country music. With chart topping hits like “You Won’t Ever Be Lonely,” “I’ll Go Crazy,” “She’s More,” “If Heaven,” and “She Thinks She Needs Me,” Andy has cemented his reputation as a true song interpreter and has won himself fans far and wide. To him, it's those loyal fans and the time he gets to spend onstage with them that matter more than anything else he does. Andy Griggs continues to keep his career going strong by writing songs, recording music and, of course, touring. With the recent release of his 13-track acoustic album, titled Naked, Andy Griggs provides fans with a rare look at his raw talent with just an acoustic guitar and his soulful voice. He also received several first round Grammy nominations for this project. Andy is currently putting the finishing touches on his new, yet-to-be-titled full-length album. Triple Play Plus is a taste of what’s to come from that project. It contains four new songs, and is currently available on iTunes.
