Chris LeDoux

Song: “Dallas Days And Ft. Worth Nights”

Label: Liberty 

What You Should Know: Chris is this generation’s embodiment of honky-tonk mystique – a living, breathing repository of the best of Country’s past and present. The skill and believability behind the voice have combined to make Chris a true force in Country radio. ^m^

Shelby Lynne

Song: “Slow Me Down”

Label: Magnatone 

What You Should Know: Shelby’s sultry voice has enough passion to melt a lot of radio hearts. Her debut Magnatone release, Restless, should broaden the horizons of Country radio through her music, emotional breadth and commitment. Many have rushed to add this track early, including WRBQ, KSON, WSIX, KYCY, WGTR, KQFC and WWYZ, to name a few. ^m^

Brooks & Dunn

Song: “You’re Gonna Miss Me When I’m Gone”

Label: Arista 

What You Should Know: One of the top Country touring acts over the last few years, Brooks & Dunn continue their high-energy pace well into ’95. With Kix on vocals, “You’re Gonna Miss Me When I’m Gone” goes deeper than the duo’s requisite two-steppin’ honky-tonk sound. The two co-wrote this radio-friendly hit, the fourth single from the multi Platinum CD Waitin’ On Sundown. ^m^

Ty Herndon

Song: “I Want My Goodbye Back”

Label: Epic 

What You Should Know: Ty has all the energy and drive of a fresh new artist, but the key to the appeal of “I Want My Goodbye Back” is its simplicity, basic honesty and reality – the same qualities that have been at the heart of Country music forever. Check out the new video already playing on CMT and TNN. ^m^

Shane Sutton

Song: “I’ve Got Your Number”

Label: Polydor 

What You Should Know: Shane’s debut single from his self-titled album will be tying up phone lines and warming up the airwaves at Country radio everywhere. Brilliantly produced by Tony Haselden and Russ Zavitson to help spotlight Shane’s vocal abilities, “I’ve Got Your Number” is very accessible to all demos and is highlighted by an infectious hook. Don’t forget to call this one in. ^m^
