Country Cruising has already announced the names of some of the artists that will be taking to the high seas in January 2017, with a trio of the hottest artists today…Kelsea Ballerini, LOCASH, and Chris Young, in addition to Nashville cast members Charles Esten and Clare Bowen.
The cruise’s organizers continue to go the extra mile by providing a wide array of talent on the Brilliance of the Seas® with the latest group of entertainers for the cruise representing some of Country Music’s all-time greatest hits from the past two decades. Joining the cruise are Montgomery Gentry, Diamond Rio, Phil Vassar, and Halfway To Hazard.
Montgomery Gentry has been a force in Country Music since their 1999 debut hit “Hillbilly Shoes.” With over 30 plus charted singles, the duo recently celebrated a major career milestone as Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry were inducted into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame. Montgomery Gentry has earned countless CMA, ACM, and Grammy awards and nominations with undeniable blue collar anthems like “Hell Yeah,” “My Town,” and “Hillbilly Shoes” and will soon celebrate their 7th anniversary as Grand Ole Opry members.
Diamond Rio have sold over 10 million albums earning three platinum and five gold records and won the Country Music Association’s Vocal Group of the Year award four times and two Academy of Country Music Awards in the Top Vocal Group of the Year category along with thirteen Grammy nominations. The band debuted on Arista Records in 1991 with “Meet in the Middle” and became the first group in the history of country music to have a debut single reach No. 1. They continued to place 32 more singles on the Billboard chart, including “How Your Love Makes Me Feel,” “Beautiful Mess” and “One More Day.”
Phil Vassar has written many of the biggest hits of the past two decades…with hits like “Little Red Rodeo” for Collin Raye, and “My Next Thirty Years” for Tim McGraw. However, in 1999, the singer hit the top ten on his own with the rollicking “Carlene,” and has not looked back. He topped the chart on his own with “Just Another Day In Paradise,” as well as with “Love Is A Beautiful Thing.” Vassar will be releasing a new studio album this summer.
Halfway To Hazard, comprised of David Tolliver and Chad Warrix, made an instant connection with Country fans in 2007, while on tour with Tim McGraw, Faith Hill & Jason Aldean. Together as well as separately, the pair have enjoyed cuts from acts such as Tim McGraw, Brantley Gilbert, and Jerrod Niemann. After taking a break from the scene for a while, the duo are back with their most recent single, Heaven on Down the Highway and are finishing up their 3rd studio Album.
Country Cruising offers the Country Music fan an amazing experience – a five night cruise, with accommodations and all meals taken care of during the event, as well as autograph sessions, photo opportunities, daily musical performances, and songwriter workshops.
Pricing begins at $1299 for interior rooms, and packages are also available with ocean and balcony views as well.
