BlackHawk

Multi-platinum-selling country artist Blackhawk is Henry Paul (guitar, mandolin and vocals) and Dave Robbins (keyboards and vocals).

With a dozen top ten hits including two number ones to their credit and album sales that exceed 7 million records, they continue to carve out their own place in music history.
In 1999 tragedy struck when Van was diagnosed with melanoma, a deadly form of skin cancer. In 2001 after a long courageous fight Van lost his battle. Henry and Dave have since followed through with his dying wish that Blackhawk continue to make great music and that they try and help find a cure. They established the Van Stephenson Memorial Cancer Research Fund in his memory, donating the proceeds of their efforts to the Vanderbilt Cancer Research Center. They continue to write and record new music and with their incredible band and continue to spread Blackhawk’s unique musical message.
Their new album “Down From The Mountain” will be out in the spring of 2011 supported by a busy touring schedule. There is a sincerity and originality in what they do that rings true with audiences everywhere. Great songs are the cornerstones of their career and these songs have touched people of all ages.  Their unique musical character has been a catalyst in bringing non-country music fans to the genre. Blackhawk’s faithful followers have continued to grow in numbers over the years based on the consistency of quality in their live show. Night after night Blackhawk puts on an inspired performance that resonates in the hearts and minds of music enthusiasts everywhere.

Shenandoah

Shenandoah is an American country music group founded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, in 1984 by Marty Raybon (lead vocals, acoustic guitar), Ralph Ezell (bass guitar, backing vocals), Stan Thorn (keyboards, backing vocals), Jim Seales (lead guitar, backing vocals), and Mike McGuire (drums, background vocals). Thorn and Ezell left the band in the mid-1990s, with Rocky Thacker taking over on bass guitar; Keyboardist Stan Munsey joined the line up in 1995. The band split up in 1997 after Raybon left. Seales, Munsey, Thacker and McGuire reformed the band in 2000 with lead singer Brent Lamb, who was in turn replaced by Curtis Wright and then by Jimmy Yeary. Ezell rejoined in the early 2000s, and after his 2007 death, he was replaced by Mike Folsom. Raybon returned to the band in 2014. That same year, Jamie Michael replaced the retiring Jim Seales on lead guitar.

Shenandoah has released nine studio albums, of which two have been certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America. The band has also charted twenty-six singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, including the Number One hits "The Church on Cumberland Road," "Sunday in the South" and "Two Dozen Roses" from 1989, "Next to You, Next to Me" from 1990, and "If Bubba Can Dance (I Can Too)" from 1994. The late 1994-early 1995 single "Somewhere in the Vicinity of the Heart," which featured guest vocals from Alison Krauss, won both artists a Grammy Award for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.

Restless Heart

Restless Heart is an American country music band established in 1984. The band's longest-lasting lineup has consisted of Larry Stewart (lead vocals), John Dittrich (drums, background vocals), Paul Gregg (bass guitar, background vocals), Dave Innis (piano, keyboards, guitars, background vocals), and Greg Jennings (lead guitar, mandolin, background vocals). Verlon Thompson was the band's original lead singer, but he was replaced by Stewart before the band had issued its first single. Between 1984 and 1998, Restless Heart recorded for RCA Records Nashville, releasing the albums Restless Heart, Wheels, Big Dreams in a Small Town, Fast Movin' Train, Big Iron Horses, and Matters of the Heart. Stewart departed for a solo career before Big Iron Horses, which resulted in Dittrich, Innis, and Gregg alternating as lead vocalists; Innis also departed before Matters of the Heart, and the band ultimately went on hiatus from 1994 to 1998.
