Blurring the lines between Country and hip-hop music, Blanco Brown makes a southern sound that he proudly calls “TrailerTrap.” It’s a boundary-breaking, multicolored genre of his very own – which draws upon the rawness and storytelling abilities of his two biggest musical influences, Johnny Cash and Outkast. His debut album, Honeysuckle & Lightning Bugs
, shows off the full range of its creator, who juggled multiple roles as the project’s songwriter, producer, vocalist, visionary, and multi-instrumentalist (guitar, harmonica, lap steel, spoons, tambourine, to name a few). Since 2014, Blanco has been honing in on his unique sound, which is a mix of countrified influences and street-smart lingo, that balances both the urban and rural settings in which he grew up. His viral hit “The Git Up” (certified 11x PLATINUM across three countries) took the world by storm, claiming the top spot in charts across the global and spawning nearly four billion views across social platforms. It claimed the No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for 12 weeks and was the top-selling digital Country song in the US for 13 weeks resulting in Billboard
naming him as their No. 1 Top New Country Artist for 2019. In addition to being named Billboard’
s “7 Country Acts to Watch in 2019,” the Georgia native is a background singer, artist and Grammy-nominated engineer who has worked with big name talent including Fergie, Childish Gambino, Kane Brown and Chris Brown. The multi-talent’s multi-national Platinum-certified collaboration “Just the Way” with Parmalee is currently in the Top 20 on Hot AC and has garnered more than 200 million on-demand streams in the US alone, also marking Brown’s first No. 1 hit on Country radio (peaking at No. 1 in the US and Canada). No stranger to collaborations, Blanco recently collaborated with Nelly and Breland for their funky fun “High Horse,” and “
Never Gonna Tame You (Original Song from “The Mustangs: America’s Wild Horses”),” written by Diane Warren. In September 2020 Brown was in a life-threatening accident and has been recovering, leaning on creating music to heal-the first taste of that is “Nobody’s More Country,” available now.Direct Support: King Calaway
Named as one of the seven new Country acts to watch out for by Billboard, King Calaway has been taking the Country music industry by storm ever since their 2019 debut album, Rivers. Performing on national TV shows such as Jimmy Kimmel, The Late Late Show with James Corden, TODAY, The Kelly Clarkson Show and the internationally acclaimed show Neighbours to making their Grand Ole Opry debut, the band has opened for Country music icon Garth Brooks, Brooks & Dunn, Rascal Flatts, Lainey Wilson, Gabby Barrett and Scotty McCreery. Most recently, the “rising Country band” (Country Now
) joined forces with the award-winning Zac Brown as their producer on brand new music, including “When I Get Home” that the guys performed with Zac Brown at Nissan Stadium during this year’s CMA Fest as well as the high-energy track “I’m Feelin’ Good (Steve Miller Band).” The band will join both Blanco Brown and Dustin Lynch on tours this fall and will have more Zac Brown produced new music early next year.
