“Ranked as the fourth best-selling rap artist of all time by the Recording Industry of America, Nelly has become a symbol of rap's crossover success in mainstream pop music. With over 21 million albums sold in the US alone, his pop-infused hip hop and unique vocal delivery have earned him six Top 10 albums and made him a live concert favorite. His seventh studio album, 2012's M.O., features hit singles "Hey Porsche" and "Get Like Me," a collaboration with Nicki Minaj and Pharrell. Born Cornell Iral Haynes, Jr. in 1974, Nelly got his first taste of musical success with the St. Louis hip hop collective St. Lunatics. In 2000, he launched his solo career with No. 1 debut album Country Grammar, which showcased his signature Southern drawl mixed with a Midwestern twang. 2002 follow-up Nellyville also peaked at No. 1 and included the international smash " Hot in Herre," which earned him a Grammy in 2003 for Best Male Rap Solo Performance. On 2013's M.O. tour, Nelly treated ticket buyers to his greatest hits, earning rave reviews for his upbeat stage presence and charismatic performances”

Carly Pearce

Carly Pearce’s kind of Country transcends the moment. Fiercely rooted in the classics, the girl who left her Kentucky home and high school at 16 to take a job at Dollywood has grown into a woman who embraces the genre’s forward progression and is confident in what she wants to say. Lighting a fire with her debut album EVERY LITTLE THINGthe PLATINUM-certified history making title track steered a chart-topping trifecta on SiriusXM’s The Highway as “If My Name Was Whiskey” and “Hide The Wine” followed. A loyal advocate of Country music’s legacy and future, it’s no surprise an institution like the Grand Ole Opry has invited her for more than 75 performances since her debut while the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum® partnered on Unbroken Circle: Exploring Country Music History with Carly Pearceconnecting the genre’s eras. Adding slots on major tours with Blake Shelton, Rascal Flatts, Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean as well as Old Dominion, Carly has become “Country’s ‘it’ girl” (ABC Radio). The down-to-earth female vocalist has quickly carved out her own highly honest, emotionally compelling place in a very Pop-Country world, evident on her self-titled sophomore album. Now, navigating her music for the first time without longtime mentor busbee, who unexpectedly passed away, Carly turned to the comfort of records she’s drawn inspiration from since her childhood dream started to take hold. Like those before who spoke their minds with a little sass and steel guitar – Dolly, The Chicks, Trisha, Reba, Patty Loveless – she’s leaning on her own intuitions with new single “Next Girl,” out now with a clever new video on Big Machine Records. Carly co-wrote the looking-out-for-your-sister track with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, who stepped in as new collaborators and producers. With the most CMA Awards nods for any new artist nominee in 2020, Carly led with New Artist of the YearSong of the Year, Video of the Year and won Musical Event of the Year for her PLATINUM-certified, No. 1 duet with Lee Brice. The ABC broadcast performance of “I Hope You’re Happy Now” with Charles Kelley of Lady A is also out now. Carly penned the 321+ million-global-streaming track alongside Luke Combs, Jonathan Singleton and Randy Montana. The song was also featured on multiple Billboard year end charts – Hot Country Songs, Country Airplay Songs, Country Streaming Songs – while Carly was listed on Top Country Artists and her self-titled sophomore project landed in Top Country Albums.
