Blake Shelton: Blake Shelton jumped out of the gates running with a #1 single on his first try. Shelton released his self-titled debut in 2001; The lead-off single "Austin" spent five weeks at #1 and he was suddenly one of country's top new vocalists. Five studio albums, dozens of singles, and an up-coming marriage to country starlet Miranda Lambert have kept Shelton on country radar. Blake Shelton tour dates are currently scheduled throughout 2011.

Shelton moved to Nashville at seventeen years old to pursue a career in country music. After several painstaking years he finally scored a deal with Giant Records in 1998. He recorded what became Toby Keith's signature hit "I Wanna Talk About Me", but it was ultimately scrapped in favor of the single "Austin". Either way, Shelton made a huge impact on the country charts when he released his debut in 2001. It featured the hits "All Over Me" and a cover of the George Jones classic "Ol' Red". Shelton was nominated for the Best New Male Vocalist award at the 2002 Academy of Country Music Awards and shot to country fame.

Shelton followed up with The Dreamer in 2003 which featured the #1 single "The Baby". He released his third album Blake Shelton's Barn & Grill in 2004 which featured "Some Beach" and "Nobody but Me". He released his fourth album Pure BS in 2007 which was produced by veteran country musician Bobby Braddock. The album featured a cover version of Michael Buble's "Home" which became his fourth #1 country single. His fifth album, Startin' Fires was released in 2009 and featured his fifth #1 hit single, "She Wouldn't' Be Gone".

Since his last album, Shelton has released a series of highly successful extended plays. In 2009, he recorded the track "Hillbilly Bone" with Trace Adkins which also reached number one and was awarded "Vocal Event of the Year" by the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association in 2010. In 2010 he released the EP All About Tonight which featured the #1 title track and the #1 single "Who Are You When I'm Not Looking". By years end, he had enough singles to release a Greatest Hits album and was invited to join the Grand Ole Opry. He topped off 2010 by winning the Male Vocalist of the Year Award at the 44th ACM Music Awards.

2011 is gearing up to be a huge year for Shelton. He will be starring on NBC reality competition show "The Voice" as a judge. Additionally, he is getting married to Miranda Lambert, the union will certainly make them the hottest country couple since Tim and Faith. Finally, Shelton has released his latest single "Honey Bee", which is racing up both the country and pop charts and is his highest charting single on the Billboard Hot 100 to-date. Shelton has proved that he is a country star with eight #1 singles and a shining personality. Don't miss out when he comes to town.

The Band Perry: For The Band Perry, country music is a family affair. The group, fronted by big sister Kimberly and supported by younger brothers Reid and Neil, became country music's breakout act in 2010. The massive success of their single "If I Die Young", was followed by accolades and Platinum plaques. Now, The Band Perry has embarked on a national tour on the opening stage for country superstar Tim McGraw. Don't miss the Band Perry tour dates along the Emotional Traffic Tour this Summer, 2011.

The Alabama trio began touring together when Kimberly was a solo-act with Reid and Neil, then 8 and 10, serving as her opening act. They put their forces together in 2005 and booked tour dates as The Band Perry on the New Faces of Country Tour in 2005. They were finally discovered in 2008 by Garth Brooks' manager and were signed to fledging Nashville start-up label Republic Nashville. The cultivation process was short and in 2009, The Band Perry released their debut single "Hip to My Heart" and due to the success quickly put a record together. They released a self-titled EP in April, 2009 to capitalize on a hit single while forging ahead in the studio and with tour dates.

By 2010, The Band Perry became formidable country stars when "If I Die Young" hit country radio. The single was a massive triumph becoming the act's first #1 single and receiving a double-Platinum certification. The single brought The Band Perry commercial success and they were lauded by the country music community. In 2011, the group was awarded the Top New Artist and Top New Duo awards at the Academy of Country Music ceremonies and they were nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Country Song.

The Band Perry scored another country hit in 2011 with "You Lie" off their self-titled debut album which has since been certified Gold. The Band Perry was last year's breakout success and they are currently riding the wave of their monumental debut.
