THE FRONTMEN

DREW BALDRIGE

TAILGATE REVIVAL

The Frontmen have 30 No.1 hits, have sold 30 million albums, and are the soundtrack to every Friday night honky. THE FRONTMEN, comprised of 3 former lead singers, Larry Stewart (Restless Heart), Richie McDonald (Lonestar), and Tim Rushlow (Little Texas)- is country music's hottest new supergroup. Powerhouse hits performed by Frontmen of Country include Restless Heart classic, "The Bluest Eyes in Texas," "That Rock Won't Roll," "I'll Still Be Loving You," and "Why Does It Have to Be (Wrong or Right). Lonestar smashes such as "Amazed," "Smile," and "I'm Already There," plus Little Texas hits including "God Blessed Texas," "Amy's Back in Austin," and "What Might Have Been." These songs and many others included in their shows are the soundtrack of generations.

Drew Baldridge brings a voice as rich as the mid-western soil he was raised on, Patoka, IL native. Drew Baldridge's music reflects small-town life while living large on the simple things. His latest viral hit, "She's Somebody's Daughter," has amassed over 400 million social media impressions and streams while starting a whole movement on TikTok called "The Daughter Trend." His music catalog, including songs like She's Somebody's Daughter, Rebound, Imma, and She Does, has been streamed over 350 million times globally. He's an acclaimed songwriter writing for Sony Music Publishing. He has had his songs recorded by Locash, Bailey Zimmerman, Chase Matthew, and more. He has shared the stage with many artists, including Eric Church, Jason Aldean, and Luke Bryan, to name a few.

Tailgate Revival has been a powerhouse staple since its 2016 debut. It has grown into a full-fledged country touring act with a brand-new album slated for a late summer release. Their current single, "Enough of You," garners radio airplay and streams worldwide. Attracting fans from all over, the Nashville, Tennessee-based band is known for their high-energy blend of country covers and can't-miss acoustic sets highlighting original songs mixed with real life and those country gold sounds. Name almost any country artist, and chances are lead singer Blake Billman can deliver a rousing rendition – especially all of those beloved '90s country hits. Influenced by Garth Brooks, Joe Diffie, Blake Shelton, Jon Pardi, and Justin Moore, Tailgate Revival has followed in the honky-tonk footsteps of their idols and has even shared the stage with them at festivals, bars, and large venues!
