This 👏 girl!! “Sharp, swooning, and all the right kinds of sentimental” (Rolling Stone), blossoming singer/songwriter @madison_kozak mesmerizes listeners with a strong pen and a vulnerable voice. Her breakout debut single, “First Last Name,” not only scored the @belmontu alum a publishing deal with @bigloud in 2018, but compelled award-winning songwriter @nicatnitemusic to launch female-driven label @songsxdaughters, and sign Kozak as their flagship artist. In the months following her signings, Kozak graduated with a music business degree, toured the U.S. and Canada with @morganevansmusic, @aaronwatsonmusic, and @masonramsey, and made her @opry debut to a standing ovation. Named to CMT’s 2021 LISTEN UP roster and 2020 Next Women of Country class, the Lindsay, Ontario native was named a country artist to watch by Pandora, Pop Culture, Sounds Like Nashville, and more. Kozak returns with a taste of “a voice that glows and songwriting capability that resonates” (Sounds Like Nashville) on her first new release in over two and a half years, “If We Were A Country Song.”

Known around Nashville as a “rare talent” (CelebMix), @farenrachels is one of the hardest working women in Music City. Having played her way through every bar in her college town of Athens, the Sparta, Georgia native turned her sights on Tennessee in 2012. After working side-gig after side-gig, the tenacious firebrand landed a publishing contract that saw her earn cuts Billboard has called “steady, stomping [and] propulsive”. Rachels has also hit the road with country greats @lukecombs, @brantleygilbert, @willienelsonofficial, and @dwightyoakam. “My grandparents loved country… used to take me to concerts,” she recounts, “now I get to tour with some of the artists that they introduced me to.” Rachels’ honest approach to songwriting has landed her credits with luminaries such as @laineywilsonmusic, @ashlandcraft, @chrissymetz, and many more. “I wanna make music for grown-ass women; real… raw,” she explains, “I wanna make music about things people are actually going through, and not drinking beer 24-7.” Despite having to take a break from touring due to the COVID pandemic, Faren is now poised to impress once again with a string of new releases (produced by Rocky Block and Austin Goodloe) and a rapidly building tour schedule. It’s no wonder her work has been described as “speaking to the universal journey, and struggle, of turning dreams into reality,” (American Songwriter) because Faren Rachels has lived, and thrived, through it all. ...

At just 22 years old, singer-songwriter and self-taught guitarist, @thepaytonsmith, has a lot to celebrate. Since co-writing his debut single “Like I Knew You Would” and releasing his self-titled EP in late 2019, the Louisiana native has amassed over 35 million streams worldwide and was the most added new artist to radio in 2020. Known for not only high-energy guitar slinging and smooth vocals, the CMT 2021 Listen Up artist also composed and played every string instrument on each track of his debut project. As Taste of Country noted his “raw talent, authenticity and strong work ethic are bound to bring him country music success for many, many years” as one of 2021’s Hottest Country Artists Under 25. Music Row called Smith the 2021 Next Big Thing, while “Like I Knew You Would” charted as the number 7 song of the year on Spotify’s Hot Country. With a string of new shows and a collection of new songs, including the high-energy breakup song “Need You To Not”, 2022 will undoubtedly continue to be a breakout year for Payton Smith.

First up on this year's lineup is the beautiful and talented, @sarahbuxton who’s lent her signature ethereal grit to projects for a range of artists from range of artists from @mirandalambert to @dierksbentley to @davidnail to @blakeshelton to @willhoge 👏 Buxton has also written songs for a list that’s equally impressive... @keithurban, @floridageorgialine, @bigandrichofficial, @garyallanmusic, @trishayearwood, @caitlynsmith, @sarahjarosz, Reba McEntire, Harry Connick Jr., Dan Tyminski, and more. She’s sung on records for Urban, Florida Georgia Line, McBride, Smith, Tyminski, and numerous others as well––evidence of a telling pattern: When discerning ears hear her voice singing her song, they want to incorporate as much of Buxton’s magic into their own version as possible. Buxton has also contributed songs to hit TV series such as Nashville, for which she and co-writer Kate York earned an Emmy nomination.
