About Brent Anderson:
Sea Gayle Records/Arista Nashville recording artist Brent Anderson has just been chosen as one of Billboard’s “Best Bets for 2012.”  A Pascagoula, Mississippi native, Anderson co-penned his debut single, “Amy’s Song,” which is currently climbing Country airplay charts.  At age 13, Anderson was fronting his own band, and by 17, his gift for songwriting caught the ear of Nashville, earning him his first publishing contract in 2005.  A distinctive vocalist as well as a skilled guitarist, Anderson co-wrote all of the songs on his upcoming debut album, helmed by noted producer Frank Rogers (Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker).  Fans can keep up with Brent Anderson online at www.BrentAndersonMusic.com and via Twitter: @Brents2cents.   

About Wade Bowen:
Award winning singer/songwriter and lifetime road warrior Wade Bowen recently released his first single, “Saturday Night,” from his forthcoming studio album on Sea Gayle/BNA Records. Thirteen years after launching his career at Stubb’s Barbecue in Lubbock, Texas, Bowen’s new music isn’t a debut; it’s more like a fresh start on a bigger stage.  Bowen has made a living of 200-plus nights a year on the road and patient grassroots fan development.  With nine No. 1s on the Texas Music Chart, multiple awards including 2009 Texas Music Awards’ Male Vocalist of the Year and the 2010 Lone Star Music Awards’ Live Act of the Year, three studio albums and a Live At Billy Bob’s CD/DVD combo at the iconic club in Fort Worth under his belt, the Texas native is currently in the studio recording his first album for a major Country label.  Visit www.WadeBowen.com for more information.

About Jerrod Niemann:
Sea Gayle/Arista Nashville recording artist Jerrod Niemann launched a trio of hits with his acclaimed album, Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury, which included “One More Drinkin’ Song,” the Gold-certified “What Do You Want,” and the Platinum No. 1 single, “Lover, Lover.”  Co-produced by Niemann, Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury was one of The New York Times’ Top 10 Albums of 2010 and featured Niemann as a writer on 10 of the 12 songs.  Upon release, the album debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums sales chart and remained the only major-label debut to hit No. 1 on the chart all year.  Niemann has quickly become a fan and industry favorite, earning award nominations from the ACM, CMA, CMT and the American Country Awards, while headlining his own shows and touring with such artists as Dierks Bentley and Brad Paisley.  Jerrod is currently at work on a new album and on the road with Miranda Lambert’s “On Fire” tour.  Keep up with Jerrod online at www.jerrodniemannofficial.com and on Twitter: @jrodfromoz.
