The Friday Five: Country Artists To Watch in 2015

1. Cam – “My Mistake”
We’ve never had as much fun watching an unfamiliar opening act as we did during Cam’s set on the Where It All Began Tour with Dan + Shay.  She just launched her first single, “My Mistake,” and we’re sure we’ll be catching her on a headlining tour very soon.

2. Canaan Smith – “Love You Like That”
Canaan scored opening spots on some of the hottest tours this year, including Dierks Bentley’s Sounds of Summer Tour. His self-titled debut EP will be released in March, just in time to learn all the words before seeing him on tour! 

3. Chris Lane – “Broken Windshield View”
Chris has played shows with some of the biggest names in country, making a name for himself on the road in the process.  He’s currently working on an EP following the release of his single “Broken Windshield View.”  

4. Michael Ray – “Kiss You In The Morning”
2015 is shaping up to be Michael Ray’s year – his first single “Kiss You In The Morning” was the highest debuting single on the Country Airplay chart when it was released.  You can also see him on the Lipstick Graffiti Tour with possibly the hottest country singer of the moment, Sam Hunt, this Spring.

5. Jackie Lee – “She Does”
With his raspy southern drawl and electric guitar in hand, Jackie Lee is ready to make you fall in love with him.  Like he sings in his debut single, “She Does,” he may not like the same things you do, but he’s willing to love them for you.  Jackie is currently working on his debut album and landed the Nashville Lifestyles’ 2015 Most Eligible Singles cover.

Sam Hunt Announces The “Lipstick Graffitti Tour”

Sam Hunt just announced his first headlining tour, kicking off in West Hollywood in January!  And, best of all, he’s making a stop in NYC!  (Loyal Secret Fangirl readers will know this is a huge deal for us.)  We love how Sam’s unique mix of country and R&B influences blend into his distinct sound.   He’s also an incredibly fun artist to watch live.  Even on his opening spot on the “Up In Smoke Tour,” the whole crowd was singing along.


You don’t want to miss this one – Sam’s single “Leave The Night On” has gone platinum, and his first album “Montevallo” debuted at #1 on the country charts.  He just sold out his first headlining show on Long Island next week, and we’re sure he’ll be selling out arenas one day.  Pre-sales start Wednesday Nov 12th,  and general on sales begin Friday Nov 14th!
