THANK YOU TO OUR CAROLS BY CANDLELIGHT 2017 HEADLINERS
Known for merging their country roots with strong melodies and rich vocals, Lonestar has amassed RIAA-certified sales in excess of ten million album units since their national launch in 1995, and achieved ten #1 country hits including “No News,” “Come Crying To Me,” and their crossover smash “Amazed” (which was also #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, the first record since 1983’s “Islands in the Stream”, to top both charts). The band’s awards include a 1999 ACM Single of The Year for “Amazed” (the song also won the Song of the Year award), and the 2001 CMA Vocal Group of the Year. Lonestar’s latest release, Never Enders, features ten new songs that bring the band’s trademark sound into the contemporary arena.
Brandy is a 2014 Country Music Association Award winner and a four-time Grammy nominee. She’s written hits for such artists as Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert. Clark is part of a new vanguard in country music — one that tips a hat to tradition, while not eschewing its evolution.
American Songwriter calls Charlie Worsham, “the sort of triple threat artist that seems in short supply on Music Row these days. He writes well, sings well, and is a skilled and tasteful guitarist to boot,” while Rolling Stone asserts, “A fleet-fingered guitarist and empathetic vocalist, his talent is reminiscent of a young Keith Urban in all the best ways.” Rolling Stone has also called Worsham’s 2017 release one of the 25 best of the year. Charlie recently toured with Tim McGraw & Faith Hill and in early 2018 he’ll take to the road with Miranda Lambert.
Anna Vaus is no stranger to Carols by Candlelight. Now she’s making a name for herself in Nashville. Vaus signed a publishing deal with Black River Entertainment. In 2016, she was chosen by Miranda Lambert as the first recipient of the Miranda Lambert Women Creators Fund. She recently became the recipient of the Don Gibson Songwriter’s Scholarship. She has opened shows for legendary Nashville artists and performed at legendary venues. But no matter where she plays or who it’s with, for Vaus, it’s about the song.
2010 Grammy winner; four-time Grammy nominee. He has performed at the Grand Ole Opry and the White House. Vaus, along with Wayne Nelson of Little River Band, founded Carols by Candlelight in 1990.
