Known for her confessional lyrics and raspy, smoky vocals, Melissa Etheridge stormed onto the American rock scene in 1988 with the release of her critically acclaimed self-titled debut album and has remained one of America’s favorite female singer-songwriters for more than two decades. Etheridge has won two GRAMMY Awards throughout her illustrious career, including one in 1992 for “Ain’t It Heavy” and one in 1994 “Come to My Window,” her searing song of longing. In 2007, Etheridge celebrated a career milestone with a victory in the “Best Song” category at the Academy Awards for “I Need to Wake Up,” written for the Al Gore documentary on global warming, “An Inconvenient Truth.” In October 2016, Etheridge released “MEmphis Rock & Soul” to which debuted at #1 on the Blues charts. This marked her first album since 2014’s critically-lauded “This Is M.E.” Recorded at Royal Studios in Memphis, the 12- track album features original material as well as interpretations of classic songs from the legendary Stax catalog, celebrating its artists and legacy and spotlighting the vital role Stax Records played in the Civil Rights Movement.

Cam is a Grammy, CMA and ACM nominated artist who doesn’t limit herself to just one musical style. Since the beginning she has put faith in the uniqueness of her voice allowing that to be the defining character of her musical persona. She burst into the music scene in 2015 with the debut of “Untamed” which went to #2 on Billboard’s Top Country albums and had the best first week sales of 2015 for a debut country artist. In addition, her single “Burning House” is a #1 platinum-certified hit showcasing the counterpoint to the party atmosphere of modern country. Cam co-wrote each song on “Untamed” which is evident every time you hear her sing, she’s clearly living the experience for the three or four minutes she’s in it. The simple, three-letter name is bold. And that rings true to the art, and the heart, of one of country’s shining new acts.

26-year-old Calgary native Lindsay Ell was discovered at age 13 by BTO and The Guess Who's Randy Bachman. Diving head-first into the world of blues, jazz and rock guitar, Ell’s passion and study has served her well, leading to several unique opportunities, including an opening slot with blues icon Buddy Guy. With a focus on country music inspired by her first songwriting trip to Nashville, she knows her rare six-string prowess is not the only focal point, but an accent to her vision as an artist. Having spent a decade learning about the music industry from the front of a stage, Ell is more than ready to take the next step, however big or small.

By age 24, Orianthi has already experienced what most aspiring musicians only dream of. She's opened for her hero Steve Vai, backed for Carrie Underwood, traded solos with the legend Carlos Santana and shared the stage with Michael Jackson. At the age of six in Adelaide, Australia she began taking an interest in her dad’s record collection which led her to mastering the six-string. However, guitar is not the only means of express for Orianthi as she also sings, writes and leads her own band. Songs like “Suffocated” and “Think Like A Man” are anthemic rock tracks.  First single “According To You” is a catchy tale of an ungrateful boyfriend with a killer guitar solo.  She is also part of RSO—Richie Sambora & Orianthi—two extraordinary musicians and songwriters who combine their passion for guitars and putting on a magnetic stage shows.

Musician and singer Troi Irons has always been surrounded by music - her mom is ‘80s recording artist Anne G and her dad drummed for ‘70s group Brick.  Irons, grew up singing with her family and taught herself guitar at age 12. After graduating from college in her teens, Troi struggled to make ends meet and spent six months living in her car after being kicked out of the house at 18, all of which makes its way into her sincere, honest songwriting. Described as a “brutally honest bombshell making indie rock for the next generation,” Irons is currently working on her debut album and writes and produces all of her own songs.

Rose has shared the stage with artists like Tim McGraw and Sheryl Crow, appeared at the Grand Ole Opry more than 30 times, scored an Emmy Award and received praise from outlets like Vogue, The New York Times and NPR. Her latest EP, “The Variety Show – Vol. 1,” was released in April 2016 and features songs that combine the exhilaration of hip-hop with the impact of '80s rock and the rootsy, story-based stomp of country music. Rose is currently in the studio, working on a project that continues to display her evolving style, transcend norms and showcase her unique artistry and sonic and lyrical versatility.

Born and raised in Nashville, Savannah Conley is a 20-year-old singer and songwriter that has been influenced by country along with countless other genres. Her parents, both heavily involved in the music industry, never pushed her to follow in their footsteps, but her path was apparent from an early age. Recording for hire by the age of seven and writing frequently by age 11, she has already explored many different avenues of the music world.  After winning the John Lennon scholarship in 2016, Conley is excited to share new music with her newest record.

Three-time Grammy Award winner, Lucinda Williams has been carving her own path for more than three decades now. While not a huge commercial success at the time Lucinda Williams (aka, the Rough Trade album) retained a cult reputation, and finally got the reception it deserved upon its reissue in 2014. For much of the next decade, Williams moved around the country turning out work that won immense respect within the industry. The past decade brought further development, both musically and personally, evidenced on albums like 2007’s “West,” Which All Music Guide called “flawless…” and 2011’s “Blessed,” which LA Times dubbed “a dynamic, human, album, one that’s easy to fall in love with.” All of this work has led to her most current release, “The Ghost of Highway 20,” a 14 track ode to the road.

Cultural icon Dr. John is a six-time GRAMMY Award-winning musician, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and New Orleans' greatest living legend. As a West Coast session musician in the '60s, playing keyboards on records by Sonny and Cher, Van Morrison, Aretha Franklin and The Rolling Stones, he launched his solo career developing the charismatic persona of Dr. John The Nite Tripper. His breakthrough 1968 album “Gris-Gris” introduced his voodoo mysticism, funk, rhythm & blues and psychedelic rock. Additional classic releases include 1971’s “Sun, Moon and Herbs,” which featured Eric Clapton and Mick Jagger; 1973’s “In the Right Place,” with hits “Right Place Wrong Time” and “Such a Night”; GRAMMY Award-winning albums “City That Care Forgot” in 2008 and “Locked Down” in 2012; and 2014’s critically acclaimed Louis Armstrong tribute “Ske-Dat-De-Dat: The Spirit of Satch.” In 2016 he will receive the Jazz Foundation of America's Hank Jones Award at “A Great Night in Harlem,” which has pledged $1 Million to help musicians recovering from the Louisiana flood, and has just released a double live album and DVD, “The Musical Mojo of Dr. John: A Celebration of Mac & His Music,” with performers including Bruce Springsteen, Widespread Panic and many more that is #1 on the Blues charts.

Bold and electric, The Cadillac Three has proven to be a force with high-energy shows and gritty sonic instincts. Grammy nominated and chart-topping frontman Jaren Johnston (Guitar & Lead Vocals) along with musical co-conspirators Kelby Ray (Bass Steel Guitar, Acoustic & Vocals) and Neil Mason (Drums, Percussion & Vocals) have a style all of their own that hovers between radio-ready Country anthems, rock ballads and traditional Southern folk. The Nashville natives, who met in high school, have a raw sound like no other that builds around Neil’s melodic percussion and the intertwining of Jaren’s gruff vocals and guitar with Kelby’s lap steep, all ready to explode at a moment’s notice. Since being named 2015 UK Classic Rock Roll of Honour: Best New Band, TC3 will have grown a rabid fan base across the globe with slots on Superstar tours and sold-out headline stops across Europe at famous venues – O2 Academy Islington, Dingwalls and The Garage – and will return in November for their Don’t Forget The Whiskey Tour to debut tracks from their latest album Bury Me In My Boots (Big Machine Records)

Bonnie Bishop is a Grammy-winning singer-songwriter who recently released her sixth album propelling her into the world of Soul. Before this, however, Bishop cut ties with music and passionately focused on writing and storytelling, marking an end to a decade long Country career. It wasn’t until Producer Dave Cobb reached out that she considered singing Soul leading her to the career she has today. Bonnie is credited with writing “Not Cause I Wanted To” and “Undone” for Bonnie Raitt and has also had songs featured on ABC’s “Nashville”.

Featuring the world's greatest artists spanning generations and musical genres, Skyville Live is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for performers and audiences alike. Each episode is recorded with full HD video in front of an intimate studio audience in Nashville and live-streamed around the world. Thanks to its reputation for inspiring creativity and magical on-stage moments, the show has become a destination for the biggest names in music. Since debuting in January 2015, Skyville Live has welcomed artists like Cyndi Lauper, Kris Kristofferson, Jason Isbell, Gladys Knight, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Taj Mahal, and many more.

A protégé of legendary songwriters Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, Steve Earle is one of today’s master musical storytellers, whose songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Waylon Jennings, Travis Tritt, The Pretenders, Joan Baez and countless others. Throughout his more than 30-year career, Mr. Earle has mined the veins of American roots music: country rock and roll, folk and rockabilly. His debut record, Guitar Town, shot to No. 1 on the country charts, and his Grammy Award-winning albums include The Revolution Starts...Now, Washington Square Serenade and Townes. He is host of "The Steve Earle Show: Hardcore Troubadour” Radio, on Sirius XM Radio. On June 10, his collaborative album with Shawn Colvin, Colvin & Earle, was released on Fantasy Records. Produced by Buddy Miller, it reveals a truly creative partnership between these friends who first met nearly three decades ago. His debut novel, I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive, was published in 2011, and a second novel and a memoir are forthcoming. Mr. Earle is also recognized as an actor from his roles on HBO’s The Wire and Treme, both created by David Simon. His website is steveearle.com

A 13-time Grammy winner and Billboard Century Award recipient, Emmylou Harris’ contribution as a singer and songwriter spans 40 years. She has recorded more than 25 albums and has lent her talents to countless fellow artists’ recordings. In recognition of her remarkable career, Harris was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2008. Harris is known as much for her eloquently straightforward songwriting as for her incomparably expressive singing.  Admired through her career for her talent as an artist and song connoisseur, Harris shook up country radio in the 1970s, and established herself as the premiere songwriter of a generation selling more than 15 million records and garnering 13 Grammy Awards (this year she and Rodney Crowell won the Grammy for “Best Americana album"), three CMA Awards, and two Americana Awards. Harris is one of the most admired and influential women in music. She has recorded with such diverse artists as Linda Ronstadt, Daniel Lanois, Bob Dylan, Mark Knopfler, Neil Young, Gram Parsons, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Roy Orbison, Ryan Adams, Beck, Elvis Costello, Johnny Cash, Lucinda Williams, Lyle Lovett and most recently Rodney Crowell. Few artists have achieved such honesty or have revealed such maturity in their writing. Forty years into her career, Harris continues to share the hard-earned wisdom that—hopefully if not inevitably—comes with getting older, though she’s never stopped looking ahead. A longtime social activist, Harris has lent her voice to many causes. She has performed at Lilith Fair, helping promote feminism in music and organizing several benefit tours to support the Vietnam Veterans of America Foundation.  Harris is also an avid supporter of animal rights and is actively involved in Bonaparte’s Retreat, the dog rescue organization that she founded.

Buddy Miller is an award winning guitarist, songwriter, singer, record and music   producer. He's produced records for Robert Plant, Patty Griffin, Emmylou Harris, Solomon Burke, Ralph Stanley, The McCrary Sisters, Richard Thompson, The Wood Brothers, Shawn Colvin, Steve Earle, The Devil Makes Three and The Carolina Chocolate Drops and others. Miller has released nine studio albums of his own, both as a solo artist and with collaborators including his wife, singer-songwriter Julie Miller. His most recent release titled Buddy Miller  & Friends: Cayamo Sessions at Sea is a collaborative effort featuring a host of guest artists including Kacey Musgraves, Kris Kristofferson, Brandi Carlile and Lucinda Williams and was recorded in a temporary studio set up in the bowling alley of a cruise ship. He has toured with the likes of Harris, Steve Earle, Griffin, Shawn Colvin, Plant and Allison Krauss. Miller has a weekly radio show with Jim Lauderdale on SiriusXM Outlaw Country, is the musical director and band leader of the annual Americana Music Associations Honors & Awards show, as well as the Executive Music Producer for seasons 2, 3 and 4 of the hit ABC TV show Nashville.

Brothers Osborne are two sons from a working class family. John and TJ Osborne grew up in a small, Maryland water town writing and playing songs for friends and family in their father’s shed. John (guitar) moved to Nashville first to play in other bands and two years later, TJ (vocals/guitar) joined him. It was then they formed Brothers Osborne as a twang and crunch duo that blends equal parts country and rock into one of the freshest, most identifiable sounds to come out of Nashville in recent years. The singer/songwriter siblings have been featured on several “Ones to Watch” lists including Rolling Stone, Billboard, Paste, Country Weekly, Nashville Lifestyles and Spotify. Brothers Osborne’s debut album Pawn Shop was released on January 15 and features the GRAMMY-nominated, No.1 smash hit “Stay A Little Longer” which has been Certified Gold by the RIAA as well as their current breezy single “21 Summer.” Brothers Osborne has previously toured with Eric Church, Little Big Town as well as Miranda Lambert and will embark on their first headlining The Dirt Rich Tour this fall.

Colter Wall is a prairie-born songwriter/performing artist from Saskatchewan, Canada. Recently chosen to perform for the P&E Wing of the Grammys -- as well as having earned his Ryman Auditorium debut opening for Lucinda Williams -- Wall's inaugural EP, "Imaginary Appalachia" continues to keep him a non-stop, buzzed-about young artist. His signature baritone vocal is paired with sparse, beautiful old-soul songwriting inspired by artists like Townes Van Zandt, Blaze Foley, Emmylou Harris & Waylon Jennings.

Lampedusa: Concerts for Refugees features renowned American recording artists Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Patty Griffin, Buddy Miller, The Milk Carton Kids and more coming together for an 11-stop concert series this fall to raise awareness about the unprecedented worldwide refugee crisis. In November 2015, Pope Francis reminded Jesuit Refugee Service that to give a child a seat at school is the finest gift you can give, and encouraged JRS to double the number of refugees educated to 240,00 by 2020. Under the umbrella of this Global Education Initiative, JRS is sponsoring Lampedusa to raise support for this critical cause. Funds raised by Lampedusa will support educational programs for refugees around the world.
