Dierks Bentley: Dierks Bentley, aka the Modern Day Drifter, struck a cord with guys everywhere with his singles about leavin', lovin' and heartache. For 2011, Dierks Bentley tour dates are scheduled periodically and he is gearing up to release his sixth album in less than a decade.

A native of Phoenix, Arizona; Bentley moved to the East Coast to attend the University of Vermont. He lasted a year before transferring to Vanderbilt University in Nashville and has been working in the music industry every since. He got his start as a researcher on the Nashville Network (TNN) before being picked up by Capitol Records. He released his self-titled album in 2003 and it featured the #1 hit single "What Was I Thinkin'". For his debut, he won the Top New Artist Award at the 2004 Academy of Country Music Awards and the Horizon Award at the 2005 Country Music Association Awards.

He followed up with Modern Day Drifter in 2005. The sophomore album was even more successful and featured two #1 singles including "Settle for a Slowdown" and "Come a Little Closer". His country heartbreaker image was solidified with the single "Lot of Leavin' Left to Do". After the album's success, Bentley was invited to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry. Dierks Bentley concert dates were scheduled on the High Times & Hangovers Tour throughout 2005.

He released his third album Long Trip Alone in 2006, another success it contained the #1 singles "Every Mile a Memory" and "Free and Easy (Down the Road I Go)". In support, Dierks Bentley tour dates included his first headlining outing on the Free and Easy Summer Tour. At one of the stops, he recorded a live DVD entitled "Live and Loud at the Filmore" in Colorado. In 2008, he had enough material to cut a Greatest Hits album and he joined Luke Bryan and Bucky Covington on the Throttle Wide Open Tour.

In 2009, Bentley released Feel That Fire; the album's title track and the single "Sideways" became his sixth and seventh #1 singles on the charts. Dierks Bentley concert dates included a top billed spot on the Paisley Park Tour with Brad Paisley and Darius Rucker. He cut his latest disc Up On the Ridge in 2010 and was subsequently nominated for three Grammy awards at the 2011 ceremonies. Currently, Dierks is in the studio finishing up his sixth studio album Diamonds. It is scheduled for a late 2011 release; Until then, you will have to check out the few remaining dates left on the Dierks Bentley concert schedule.

Billy Currington: Currington emerged in 2003 with his self-titled debut which spawned the hit single "I Got A Feeling". But it was his duet, "Party for Two", with country's biggest country star, Shania Twain, that pushed Currington to the top of the charts. He released his sophomore set, Doin' Somethin' Right which peaked at #2 on the Billboard Country charts and he hit the touring circuit in 2005. The video for "Must Be Doin' Somethin Right" won Currington the CMT Music Award for Hottest Video of the Year and garnered him a lot of attention from female fans. While Currington toured, he penned his #1 hits "People Are Crazy" and "That's How Country Boys Roll", which solidified Currington as Country's party boy.

Jackie Lee: Country vocal stylist Jackie Lee was only six years old when he stepped into a professional recording studio to cut songs with famed country songwriter, musician and producer Carson Chamberlain (Keith Whitley/ Easton Corbin). Sixteen years later, Chamberlain is hard at work in the studio producing Jackie’s debut album – his first as a Broken Bow recording artist.Influenced by classic country singers like Faron Young and Keith Whitley as well as popular music icons like Michael McDonald, Bob Seger — and even Justin Timberlake – Jackie has carved out a distinctive style that lends his big, soulful vocals to both arena-ready country rockers like “Show You Around” as well as to the tenderest of love songs such as the lovelorn and riveting “First Girl.” His debut single for Broken Bow Records, “She Does,” became the Most-Added Country song in the U.S. upon release. “She Does” captures the refined and distinctive style of Lee’s bold, soulful vocals. Written by Neil Thrasher and Kelley Lovelace, the song is an honest reflection of a give-and-take relationship with a girl whose smile makes it hard to disagree.Jackie’s versatility as a musician and vocalist may come as a surprise from the 23-year-old Maryville, TN native. At once unassuming and charismatic, Jackie was a celebrated high school athlete who played baseball, basketball and helped the Alcoa High School football team win two state championship rings. In fact the rising star, whose first love was the drums before taking up guitar and piano, turned down the chance to spend two more years playing center to future Green Bay Packer Randall Cobb to pursue his dreams of a musical career.Jackie’s music is as accessible as the artist himself, a man with an easy laugh, an engaging manner and an optimistic outlook on life:“I never knew my papaw,” he says, “but my dad talks about him all the time. He used to say, ‘It doesn’t cost a bit more to dream big than to dream little. People on my team tell me, ‘You need to get your expectations right, but I say, ‘I’ll let you guys do that.’ I’m going to reach for the stars.”
