It’s hard to tell whether Frank Vieira found country music, or whether country found him, but there’s no denying it’s a perfect fit.

With two No. 1 singles, multiple awards and nominations, plus performances on some of the biggest stages in the world, Mercury Nashville’s Easton Corbin has made a lasting impression on the country music landscape. He is lauded for his traditional country sound, authentic lyrics and mastery of understatement. American Songwriter says, “Easton Corbin has one of those rare, glorious voices that was made—just made—for singing country music.” His self-titled debut album released in 2010 and spawned back-to-back hits “A Little More Country Than That” and “Roll With It;” making him the first country male artist in 17 years to have his first two consecutive singles reach No. 1.  In 2012 the Gilchrist County Florida native released his sophomore album, All Over The Road, which included the Top 5 hits “Lovin’ You Is Fun” and “All Over The Road.”  Corbin set a career-best debut on Country Airplay with his top 5 hit single, “Baby Be My Love Song,” from his No. 1 debuting album About To Get Real.  His latest single, “Are You With Me,” was most added song at country radio the day it was released.  “Are You With Me” first appeared on All Over The Road and was such a special song to Corbin he carried it over to About To Get Real in hopes it would be a radio single. Corbin spent 2016 on one of the biggest tours in country music -Carrie Underwood’s The Storyteller Tour. Corbin will release his new single, “A Girl Like You,” from his upcoming fourth studio album on January 30.

Kayla Schureman

Main Stage1:30 - 2:30 pm

Kiss The Ground, the first full-length album from Kayla Schureman is a windows-down ,whatever the weather, drive through the Americana soundscape.  Subtle nods to artists like Ryan Adams, Jenny Lewis, and Kathleen Edwards abound, but the songs are fresh, focused and pulling their own weight.  At times dark and desperate, each track still glistens with the hope of the great wide open, territory that Schureman narrates and navigates with one eye on the rearview and her foot on the gas.  A little bit country, and never short on rock and roll, the album tells a story that’s there and back and gone again with plenty of guitar along the way.

A look back to Smash Mouth’s formative years shows us a band determined to make an impact from the get go. Formed in late 1994, the band immediately begins recording demos and showcasing in both San Jose and Hollywood CA. In June 1997, Smash Mouth is signed to Interscope Records when label brass catch wind of an unknown (and unsigned) band being ADDED to highly-influential L.A. radio station KROQ’s playlist after only one (!) spin of their song “Walkin’ on the Sun”. Smash Mouth’s major-label debut “Fush Yu Mang” goes more than DOUBLE PLATINUM and sets the table for what most consider their masterpiece, the brilliant follow-up album “Astrolounge”. No sophomore slump for these guys. Boasting three top-ten hits (“All-Star,” “Then the Morning Comes,” and “Can’t Get Enough Of You Baby,”) sales for “Astrolounge” are nearly double those for their debut, approaching QUADRUPLE PLATINUM status. Smash Mouth’s third eponymous Interscope release features the ecstatic first single “Pacific Coast Party” and the smash hit “I’m a Believer”. Around this time, Smash Mouth crosses over to the film world by providing the musical heart of the soundtrack for “Shrek” and even making a cameo appearance in the movie “Rat Race”. In recent years, Smash Mouth has focused on touring and entertaining troops in Japan, Guam, Guantanamo Bay, Afganistan, and Iraq.

So get ready for a “MAGIC”-al year! We all know Smash Mouth is the ultimate summertime party band…And with jumpin’ songs like “Magic,” “Flippin’ Out,” and “The Game,” Smash Mouth’s new CD “MAGIC” is the perfect soundtrack for your year ’round fun in the sun baby.

Raelyn Nelson Band

Main Stage6:30 - 7:30 pm

As an emerging female country artist in Nashville, history suggests that the quickest path to success is somehow aligning oneself with one of the major publishers, producers, songwriters, labels, or managers that are the heart of Music Row. So what do you do if you are an emerging female country artist in Nashville, and also happen to be the granddaughter of musical icon, Willie Nelson? You hook up with an independent producer and veteran of the rock/punk scene, write some songs that are part Loretta Lynn, part Cheap Trick, and form the Raelyn Nelson Band.  After recording some of these early songs with JB (Jonathan Bright), they decided to try to write some things together and see what happened.  The result? A completely fresh and original sound, a true hybrid referred to by some critics as “Country/Garage Rock.”

The Defibulators

Main Stage8 - 9:30 pm

CBGB’s meet the Grand Ole Opry. Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, the six-man, one-woman band blends bluegrass, country, rockabilly, and a sucker punch of punk for a rubber-meets-the-road roots sound. Many of their songs tow a thin line between serious and satire. But don’t let irreverence fool you. These accomplished musicians create artistic arrangements that feature harmonies worthy of Gram and Emmylou, and a virtuosic chicken-pickin’ guitar that belies their geographic origin.
