American singer-songwriter Jimmy Wayne made his debut in 2003 with his self-titled album, featuring two top-ten hit singles, “Stay Gone,” and “I Love You This Much.” Wayne’s second album Do You Believe Me Now showcases his creative character and unbridled passion for life with a repertoire of up-tempo songs that encompasses his evolution as an artist. Released in 2008, the album’s title track reached the number one slot on the Billboard country music charts, becoming his first number one hit single.
Jessica Andrews has been on the country music scene since the age of 15 after the release of her first album, Heart Shaped World, in 1999. The album reached number 24 on the Top Country Album charts and produced three singles, “I Will Be There for You,” “You Go First (Do You Wanna Kiss),” and “Unbreakable Heart.” In 2001 Andrews released her second studio album featuring her first number one hit “Who I Am.” The success of “Who I Am” also earned Andrews a Top New Female Vocalist award from the Academy of Country Music (ACM), and the album received RIAA Gold certification.
Up and coming country music starlet Julia Burton started her career after moving to Nashville, Tenn. and performing at The World Famous Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, which quickly became a catalyst to jumpstart her career. Shortly after Burton began touring with big names like Jo Dee Messina, Wynonna, Kool and the Gang and The Commodores. Her debut album is slated for release in June with her first single, a fiery, upbeat anthem, “What a Woman Wants.” Burton’s unique style has been compared to a mix of Faith Hill’s vocals fused with Gretchen Wilson.
