Headline Entertainment


Bryce Mauldin is from Webster, FL. He raced amateur motocross his whole life, racing at a nationals level until he fell in love with music. He first got involved with music in February of  2016 and introduced his voice to social media shortly after. His first video received positive responses online and he continued to post more videos, growing a larger audience and fans. After a year of posting, his first cover of "I can love you like that" went viral, reaching over 9.1 million views and over 230K shares so far. He has now moved to Nashville, TN where he writes music daily. Last year, Bryce released his first independent single "All the Proof I Need" and this year dropped his self-titled EP.


Soaring vocals meet dextrous, layered guitar and intimate storytelling that can evoke the poetic lyricism of Passenger in one song before sliding into the wrenching neo-soul of Leon Bridges in the next.  Thunderstorm Artis was born and raised in a large musical family on the North Shore of Oahu, and it’s easy to find the laid-back vibe of island life effortlessly blended with the real life experiences that inspire his music. As a Season 18 finalist on The Voice, Artis wowed audiences with both his original compositions, including quiet acoustic track “Sedona,” and loving reinterpretations of songs by artists like The Beatles and Louis Armstrong, with John Legend describing his tone as “magical” and Billboard praising his “earnest, uplifting presence.” Artis has played alongside modern icons Jack Johnson, Train, and The Zac Brown Band, as well as toured extensively with his brother, Ron Artis II. He also was a featured artist at Bottlerock Music Festival.


Tracy Byrd became a household name on the country music scene in 1993 when his song "Holdin' Heaven" off his self-titled debut album hit #1 on the Billboard Country Charts. The Album also included the remake hit of Johnny Paycheck's "Someone to Give my Love to", cementing Byrd as a traditional country troubadour! The debut album went on to be certified Gold, an award signifying sales in excess of 500,000 copies. Byrd's 2nd project, No Ordinary Man, kept building on the momentum of his first album, with the release of the smash, chart-topping hit "Watermelon Crawl", quickly certifying the album Gold. "The Keeper of the Stars" shot to #1 on the singles charts and pushed the album to Double Platinum Status (sold of over 2 Million Copies) and later won the Academy of Country Music "Song of the Year" award in 1995.


Drake White grew up singing in his church’s youth choir in Alabama before becoming one of Country music’s most spirited innovators, earning four Top 40 hits and traveling the country on multiple nationwide tours. His 2013 debut single “Simple Life” introduced his brand of Country Soul, which he cemented with his 2016 debut album SPARK followed by the EPs Pieces and Stars. White has received numerous accolades including Rolling Stone’s 10 Country Artists You Need to Know, The Grammy’s Artist of Tomorrow, and the British CMA Awards’ International Song of the Year and has shared the bill with many of Country music’s superstars like Luke Bryan, Eric Church and Zac Brown Band.
