CELTIC THUNDER - A group of men from Ireland and Scotland, who range in age from 21 to 42, and feature songs that celebrate a common Celtic heritage. An eclectic mix of songs ranging from the traditional to international hits and some original pieces. The current cast of Celtic Thunder is made up of Keith Harkin, Ryan Kelly, Neil Byrne and Emmet Cahill, Emmett O'Hanlon and special guest artist Damian McGinty. Damian was one of the original members of Celtic Thunder who left the show in 2011 to compete in the first season of the hit show "The Glee Project", which he subsequently won. He then joined the cast of the hit show Glee and has been pursuing his solo career ever since.
AMY GRANT - Her career spans more than 30 years and stretches from her roots in gospel. She's become an iconic pop star, songwriter, television personality and philanthropist. With three multi-platinum albums, six platinum albums and four gold albums, her total career album sales have exceeded 30 million. Grant's chart success is brimming with six No. 1 hits, ten Top 40 pop singles, seventeen Top 40 Adult Contemporary tracks and multiple Contemporary Christian Chart-toppers, her six Grammy Awards, 26 Dove Awards (including 4 Artist of the Year Awards), and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Grant put Contemporary Christian Music on the map, becoming the first Contemporary Christian artist to have a platinum record, the first to hit No. 1 on the Pop charts, and the first to perform at the Grammy Awards. Her legacy is of being one of the most influential artists in the past couple of decades.
JEFF DUNHAM - Jeff is a global entertainment phenomenon, with more than 45 years onstage and countless performances. Fascination with ventriloquism began at age 8 and by 10 he was performing anywhere he could find an audience. After University, he worked on his act, defining his characters Jose Jalapeno, Peanut and Walter. He moved to LA to become one of the top headliners on the US comedy club circuit, with many appearances on the Johnny Carson and Letterman shows. He has expanded to film, television, animation, digital, publishing, and the concert stage. He's sold millions of DVDs, and generated more than 1 billion views on YouTube, breaking broadcast records and topping sales charts throughout the world.
JOE DIFFIE - A legendary singer and multi-platinum-selling artist, Joe Diffie has never slowed down - writing, touring and recording a myriad of projects including his critically acclaimed 2010 bluegrass album "Homecoming", and his upcoming "Country Unplugged" acoustic tour with fellow hit makers Mark Chesnutt and Lorrie Morgan. The video for his most recent single "Girl Ridin' Shotgun" which features cameo appearances from such superstars as Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley, Toby Keith, Lee Brice, Tim McGraw, and Keith Urban has amassed well over 7 million views on YouTube.
JOHN MICHAEL MONTGOMERY - One of country music's most storied careers. A string of hit record, roomful of awards and the critical and fan accolades define his phenomenal success. Undeniable talent, his proven knack for picking hits, turned him from an unknown into a national star, John Michael's rich baritone has carried that most important of assets - believability. Few artists in any genre sing with more heart than this handsome Kentucky-born artist.
DOOBIE BROTHERS - Born out of Northern California's chaotic, late-1960s musical stew, the Doobie Brothers' rugged, real and authentic approach to rock and roll made them biker bar stalwarts. But their self-titled debut album in 1971 went beyond just leather and motorcycles, revealing even more musical layers: sweet three-part harmonies and rootsy, introspective acoustic flavours. Their legacy built not just hit records, but also musical integrity and steadfast allegiance to their fan base. The ability to evolve in a constantly changing industry is a testament to their craft.
LITTLE RIVER BAND - Was formed in Melbourne, Australia in 1975. With good songwriting, powerful vocals, and guitar harmonies, they immediately claimed their place as one of the great vocal bands of the 1970s, and the '80s, and are considered as one of Australia's most significant bands. Their worldwide album and CD sales now top 30 million. They also set a record for having Top 10 hits for 6 consecutive years... the first band to achieve that mark.
JOSH TURNER - An American singer and actor, one of country music's most recognisable hit-makers. With a rich, deep voice and distinctive style, Turner has sold more than 12 million units, is a disciple of traditional country music and one of the youngest members of the Grand Ole Opry. Turner is also an author of Faith, Family and Fatherhood, released 2014.
GARY ALLAN - An American country music artist with the allure of a modern day outlaw, with his signature blend of smouldering vocals, rebellious lyrics and raucous live performances. While becoming a force on the country music scene, Allan just re-signed with Universal Music Group in Nashville.
