2016 brought us a lot of new music and a fresh crop of talented artists…with the start of 2017, here are five artists you will want to keep an eye on this year!
This rising star really started gaining momentum with the release of her single, “Every Little Thing.” It has shot up The Highway Sirius XM charts. She opened up for Kelsea Ballerini on her Dallas and Houston tour dates and she was featured on the Josh Abbott Band’s song “Wasn’t That Drunk.” With the growing popularity of “Every Little Thing,” she has proven she is a force to be reckoned with and we can expect even bigger and better things from Pearce this year.
This country duo just released their debut single, “WD-40” and are gearing up for an EP release in early January. These two stand apart with their beautiful harmonies and dynamic lyrics. There is a lot of buzz around Muscadine Bloodline and we expect to watch them really take over the country music scene in the next year.
This talented artist released his debut single, “Do It All Again” at the end of 2016 and continues to grow his popularity through his Instagram covers. He hit to road with Chris Lane and Tyler Rich in 2016 and is gearing up for another jam-packed year. You’ll want to keep a watch on this one!
Clayton Anderson had a big 2016! He released a new single, “Only In The Dark” and followed it up with his EP, Only To Borrow, release. He also co-hosted the ABC’s CMA All Access Red Carpet with host Kelly Sutton. Anderson got his start in country music when he won Kenny Chesney’s The Next Big Star competition. Anderson has taken what he’s learned from opening for acts like Blake Shelton and Jason Aldean and made his live shows one of the best. Clayton’s drive to succeed is unparalleled and we are sure to see big things from him in the coming year.
Boo Ray had a breakout year in 2016. He released his fifth studio album, Sea of Lights, and the title single climbed the Americana charts. He finished the year in L.A. recording his next album with famed producer, Noah Shain. It will be Boo Ray’s most vulnerable album yet. It will be released later this year.
