ARTISTS

ASHLAND CRAFT

Emerging as one of the most exciting new voices in the genre, Ashland Craft is introducing her own brand of edgy Country music. As the first release on Big Loud Records, her Soul-infused vocal roars off the tracks with “Trainwreck.” Craft is set to drop a powerful batch of fresh music, after a Top 10 stint on NBC’s The Voice and opening tour slots for major artists like Luke Combs, Morgan Wallen, and more. Since relocating to Nashville last year, she has won fans with her no B.S. stamp on independent releases like Country girl anthem "Good Ol' Girls," the cleverly-constructed ode to loneliness "Your Place or Mine," and clear-eyed ballad "They Always Do."

CHRIS LANE

Heading into his second album for Big Loud Records, aptly titled Laps Around the Sun, that quest for self discovery was heavy on Chris Lane's mind. Two whirlwind years of chart toppers and jam-packed shows had gone by for the breakout country talent, but the North Carolina native still felt restless. He found himself looking back to his early days, and back to the reasons he fell in love with music in the first place.

ERNEST

Adopted at three weeks old and victim to a freak heart attack at 19, surmounting ridiculous odds has always been ERNEST’s gift. He learned banjo and guitar before he was a teen but quickly developed a passion for Hip-Hop and R&B as well, citing Eminem, Ludacris, and George Strait as some of his earliest influences. Discovering an equally powerful love of songwriting, ERNEST began working alongside Nashville songwriting royalty like the Warren Brothers and soon earned cuts from Florida Georgia Line, Chris Lane, LOCASH, Jake Owen, Mason Ramsey, Morgan Wallen and more. After spending endless amounts of time in the studio, the Tropical Cowboy showcases his distinct sound on his Big Loud Records debut project, Locals Only, out now.

HAILEY WHITTERS

Hailey Whitters was closing in on her first decade in Nashville, but despite 10 years of hard work, the singer-songwriter still hadn't had her breakout moment and, fed up with pushing the boulder uphill, she took a step back to reassess. "I hit my 'fuck it' point," says Hailey. "I felt like I was watering myself down to try and fit in with what this town was doing, and I was looking for Nashville to define my happiness. When I quit doing that I was able to dig into why I am on this journey in the first place: to create music that I love on my own terms. And that's when I wrote 'Ten Year Town'", a ballad written with Grammy nominee Brandy Clark, that takes a stark look at what happens when life doesn't work out as planned and how rejection can ultimately lead to empowerment.

HARDY

With every new release, Big Loud Records' HARDY puts his signature loud-and-rowdy stamp on modern Country music as both an artist and a songwriter. Following the release of HIXTAPE VOL. 1 - 17 all-star collaborations on 10 tracks, including current single "One Beer" featuring Lauren Alaina and Devin Dawson - the unprecedented compilation album was praised as "one of the most ambitious projects of the year" (Billboard). The countrified mixtape follows career-launching EPs THIS OLE BOY and WHERE TO FIND ME, and earned HARDY acclaim as a Vevo DSCVR artist, a MusicRow 2020 Next Big Thing artist, and “One To Watch” by CMT, Rolling Stone, Amazon, Pandora and more. The pride of Philadelphia, MS is “one of Music Row’s most consistent hit-makers on the rise” (CMT).

JAKE OWEN

Jake Owen recently released highly anticipated album “Greetings From…Jake” featuring his 7th career No. 1 hit “I Was Jack (You Were Diane)” and top 10 single “Down To The Honkytonk”. His other six No. 1’s include the 2X Platinum anthem “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” Platinum certified hits “Beachin’,” “Anywhere with You,” “Alone with You,” “The One That Got Away,” and, Gold certified “American Country Love Song."

LARRY FLEET

Don't let Larry Fleet's humble demeanor fool you: the Chattanooga-based Country singer-songwriter is the real deal, with fans in contemporary heavy-hitters like Jake Owen and living Country legends like Willie Nelson. He's a thoughtful songwriter with a knack for a one-liner, an ear for a good hook and a powerhouse voice that strikes the perfect balance of soul and twang. And he's ready to show off those chops on his debut album, Workin’ Hard, out on November 8 via Big Loud Records. Fleet recorded Workin’ Hard alongside producer Joey Moi (Florida Georgia Line, Jake Owen, Morgan Wallen) after two whirlwind years that saw him on tours with Owen and Nelson, and landing his first record deal.

MACKENZIE PORTER

With her first new music since 2015 MacKenzie Porter presents a pair of no nonsense, hook-laden tracks that are timely and timeless. Scheduled for release on November 30th on Big Loud Records, ‘About You’ and ‘Drive Thru’ showcase the Nashville-based, Canadian born singer/songwriter’s substantial chops as a vocalist and songwriter as never before. Produced by Joey Moi (Florida Georgia Line, Dallas Smith, Jake Owen), Porter’s latest songs find her treading the line effortlessly between modern and traditional country and displaying a depth of musical experience and emotional range as a performer that can only be accumulated by someone who first took to the stage as a youngster.

MASON RAMSEY

Skyrocketing to fame with an oversized voice, a huge love of classic Country and enormous personality to match, 11-year-old Mason Ramsey is the biggest little star in Country music today. An internet sensation who’s captured the hearts of million of fans, Ramsey was discovered in 2018 when a foot-tapping video of the youngster yodeling in a Walmart located in Harrisburg, Illinois, went viral.

MORGAN WALLEN

Morgan Wallen has staked his claim as Country music’s next superstar with 2.5 BILLION+ career streams, several GOLD, PLATINUM and MULTI-PLATINUM certifications, and back-to-back chart-toppers. Morgan has been riding a red-hot streak since 2017 collecting accolades which include: Billboard’s #1 song of 2019 on both the Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts (multi-week #1 “Whiskey Glasses”), nominations at the CMA Awards (2019 New Artist of the Year) and ACM Awards (2020 New Male Artist of the Year), a nod for 2019 CMT Breakthrough Video of the Year (“Whiskey Glasses”), spotlight placements on PEOPLE’s 2019 Ones to Watch and MusicRow’s 2019 Next Big Thing lists, and high-profile features by The Associated Press, The Washington Post, Genius, and more.

SEAN STEMALY

Sean Stemaly was born in Western Kentucky and raised in the river-bottom fields of Southern Indiana, a hard-worker whose Country music comes straight from the only life he knows. Stemaly taught himself to sing over endless days in the cab of a Case IH 9370 tractor, planting the seeds of stardom to the sound of icons like Brooks & Dunn, George Strait, Alan Jackson and Jason Aldean. Now based in Nashville and signed to BIG LOUD RECORDS, the 24-year-old diesel wrenching, heavy-equipment operating talent infuses modern Country with youthful, salt-of-the-earth swagger and rocked up heartland soul – a sound that’s both fresh and based in timeless traditions.
