ABOUT JERROD NIEMANN: Sea Gayle Records/Arista Nashville hitmaker Jerrod Niemann is celebrating the success of his newest single, “Blue Bandana,” an ode to the nation’s music festivals, and the first single from his upcoming album, produced by Niemann with Jimmie Lee Sloas. “Blue Bandana” follows his RIAA Gold-certified multi-week No. 1 smash, “Drink to That All Night,” from his High Noon album. Niemann co-wrote eight of the 13 tracks on High Noon, the follow-up to his acclaimed, musically adventurous 2012 release, Free the Music. Niemann’s chart-topping major-label debut, 2010’s Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury, produced the No. 1 smash and RIAA-certified Platinum digital single, “Lover, Lover,” and the Top 5 and RIAA-certified Gold digital single, “What Do You Want.” His sophomore release, Free The Music, hit shelves last year and featured the Top 15 single “Shinin’ On Me” and the poignant ballad “Only God Could Love You More.” Niemann has quickly become a fan and industry favorite, earning award nominations from the ACM, CMA, CMT and the American Country Awards, while headlining his own shows and touring with such artists as Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban.

ABOUT CAM: Cam is a California-born singer-songwriter who released her Arista Nashville/RCA Records debut EP Welcome to Cam Country on March 31st and since has received multiple new artist to watch in 2015 accolades. Her single, “Burning House,” has already reached #22 on country airplay charts after only 7 weeks, amassed nearly 8 million streams on Spotify and is selling over 30,000 downloads a week. Currently Top 10 on the Billboard Country Digital Songs chart and the #1 most-Shazamed country song, Cam’s hit is the highest-charting single by a solo female for four consecutive weeks. Out of the box, “Burning House” was the #1 most-added song at Mediabase in its official airplay impact week and achieved the best impact-week showing from a female artist’s debut project since Carrie Underwood’s “Wasted” in early 2007! This powerful, vulnerable song was co-written by Cam, has drawn favorable critical attention from gossip king Perez Hilton, SPIN, and Rolling Stone Country, while The New York Times calls “Burning House” “beautiful…echoing the 2003 Brad Paisley-Alison Krauss duet ‘Whiskey Lullaby.’” On the heels of her chart-climbing hit, Cam will be opening for multi-Platinum headliners Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town and Darius Rucker, among others in the coming months. Her performances in the past year included the opening slot on Dan + Shay’s national tour, Stagecoach, SXSW, ACM Lifting Lives Party for A Cause, CMA Music Festival, the Grand Ole Opry (debut May 29th and two times since) and a tour in Scandinavia (her second). Earlier this year, Cam was among the new talents selected for CMT’s Next Women of Country.
