JULIA CAPOGROSSI: This petite firecracker songstress is getting great recognition from her previous country radio release and is gearing up for a brand new single and official music video in the new year called Morgan. While she may still be a fresh face and sound on the country music scene, Julia has had a very successful year. This past fall, she held the coveted spot of the sole American entertainer at the San Pedro Country Music Festival in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She also participated in her first CMA Music Festival where she performed on various stages throughout the week, met fans and signed autographs. With musical influences ranging from Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Fleetwood Mac and Bruce Springsteen, this dynamite vocalist started performing at a young age and, as she grew older, loved it more and more.
With great poise and a go get ‘em attitude, this Connecticut native’s passion for music can easily be seen with her upbeat personality, warm smile and dynamic stage presence. www.JuliaCapogrossi.
CRYSTAL DAY: This multi-talented country powerhouse vocalist is a strong believer in what goes around comes around. Her powerful vocals and prodigious writing ability soars on her latest single, Karma Like Flowers. Despite her powerful vocals and remarkable songwriting ability, she is also an accomplished actress and children’s author. Having always turned to writing during tough times, this tunesmith was inspired to write her first children’s book, Mason The Bull after a tragic family event. The book has since developed into a series. She has visited libraries and schools around the country, reading the story and doing signings at various book stores along the way. No matter which path her career takes she will always be an entertainer. “I can’t imagine doing anything else in my life” she says.
With her confidence and a go get ‘em attitude, Crystal has set the bar high and if her stage presence and immense talent are any indicator of what’s to come, the finish line is nowhere in sight. www.crystalday.net.
NICK HICKMAN: Fresh off the success of his first Top 50 single, Tipsy, this dynamic country artist is back with his latest, Live For Tonight, which is currently #39 on the charts. At first glance Nick may appear to be just another mega-talented country heartthrob, but an invaluable work ethic and genuine love for entertaining distinguish him from the rest. With musical influences including George Strait, Travis Tritt, Luke Bryan, Justin Timberlake, and The Fray, this Knoxville native combines a combination of powerful vocals, strong songwriting skills and an energetic performance that you do not want to miss.
Since moving to Nashville in 2014, Nick has evolved from strictly songwriter to well-rounded entertainer. “My job is to entertain. I give everything I have in order to do just that,” www.TheNickHickman.com.
BAILEY JAMES: This teen country sensation is climbing up the Music Row Country Breakout chart with her release of Run Girl (currently #36). This rising country artist and social media sensation might be a new name, but this 14-year-old has been stamping her name on country music for years now. With performances at the legendary Bluebird Café and Wildhorse Saloon already under her belt and multiple CMA Festivals in the books, her future is bright. Her passion for music can be heard in her powerful live performances, advanced songwriting, and a level of artistry that is well beyond her years. She has followed in the footsteps of country music icons, Rascal Flatts and Charlie Daniels by joining The Jason Foundation as their first national teen ambassador. This foundation is dedicated to the prevention of youth suicide by raising awareness through education and empowerment. By teaming up with the foundation, James has been able to spread their mission to the forefront of her social media presence.
The genuine love she has for music and helping others shines through and promises to only grow stronger as this teen continues her musical journey. www.
