Ben Burgess

About Ben Burgess:

A collector of broken watches and broken hearts, time stands still with Ben Burgess, an award-winning songwriter and country artist. His work urges his listeners to avoid making the same mistakes he did. His music: a cautionary tale for the next generation.
A man of truth and contradiction, Burgess invites his listeners to reject aphorisms in exchange for introspection. He’s a no-bullshit bullshitter, shifting seamlessly from heart to humor in a way that feels refreshingly non-conformist.
Even with endless categories and sub-categories to choose from, Burgess’ music, much like the artist, defies attempts to be placed in a single box. His distinctive sound will no doubt invite imitators of his East Dallas swagger.

Ben Burgess wrote several notable tracks such as Morgan Wallen’s 7X platinum hit “Whiskey Glasses,” Tyler Rich’s gold-certified “The Difference,” Pat Green’s Texas radio #1 “Drinkin’ Days,” Lil Wayne’s “Dreams,” Martin Garrix & Troye Sivan’s platinum record “There for You,” Dierks Bentley’s “My Religion,” and HARDY’s “SIGNED, SOBER YOU,” among others.

Brian Davis

About Brian Davis:

Brian Davis is a singer/songwriter from North Carolina who co-wrote the number one songs “One Hell of an Amen” recorded by Brantley Gilbert and “Memory I Don’t Mess With” recorded by Lee Brice. He also has songs recorded by Jason Aldean, Gretchen Wilson, Tyler Farr, Jerrod Niemann, and The TV show Nashville among others.

Ashland Craft

Ashland Craft:

Ashland Craft introduced her brand of country music with debut album, TRAVELIN’ KIND, available everywhere now. Among CMT’s Next Women of Country Class of 2021 and Pandora’s Country Artists to Watch 2021, American Songwriter claims, “there’s a new country badass in town, and her name is Ashland Craft,” also praising, “this girl has star quality flying out of her boots.” Featured on HIXTAPE: Vol. 2 with Brothers Osborne on “I Smoke Weed,” CMT’s “‘can’t miss’ country star on the rise” supported Ashley McBryde’s THIS TOWN TALKS TOUR 2022 adding to her touring resume alongside recent direct support slots opening for Cody Johnson, Brother Osborne, Zac Brown Band, Luke Combs, Morgan Wallen and Marcus King. Ashland also just kicked off the 2023 Long Live Cowgirls Tour as direct support for Ian Munsick. Discovering her honky-tonk spirit while cutting her teeth at bars in her South Carolina hometown, Craft buzzes under the influence of musical heroes Def Leppard, Chris Stapleton, Bonnie Raitt, The Chicks, and Sheryl Crow.
