About Tyler Rich

Three months before his 14th birthday, his Grandparents surprised him with a guitar for Christmas, and he never stopped playing.
After countless hours working on his craft, and spending years on the road touring across the country with multiple bands, Tyler decided it was time to pursue his career as a solo artist.
Since that day Tyler has performed along side some of the industries top artists including, Cole Swindell, Sam Hunt, Dan + Shay, Gloriana, Canaan Smith, Maddie & Tae, and more!

About Adam Hambrick
Adam Hambrick is a lucky guy. He would even go so far as to say he won the songwriter lottery when country star Justin Moore found him on an Arkansas morning TV show in 2011. Moore’s by-chance channel surfing introduction opened the door for Adam to move to Nashville, turning his part-time pursuits into a full-time career in country music.
As the son of a Baptist pastor, Adam’s musical roots are in the church, singing hymns with his family. They are in the country and bluegrass standards that his grandparents love, and they are in the pop hits that defined the 90s and 2000s. These are the influences that have guided Adam to write songs that have been recorded by Justin Moore, Miranda Lambert, Eli Young Band, Dan + Shay and more.
While Adam’s main focus is his songwriting, the touring and performing aspects of his career continue to grow. He played 40 shows across 6 states in 2015 with a diverse group of artists including Eli Young Band, Josh Abbott Band, Steve Moakler, Chris Lane and others. Adam continues to develop with every show, turning heads with his unique songs and signature voice.
Whatever happens next for this Arkansas singer/songwriter, one thing is obvious: he is determined to make the most of the good fortune that brought him to Nashville. You can listen to Adam’s newest offering, “July” exclusively on Soundcloud and at www.AdamHambrick.com.
SmithField was founded in 2011 with a dream as big as their home state of Texas. Comprised of vocalists Trey and Jennifer, SmithField took the stage by storm with their memorable music and stunning harmonies. Having grown up together, their on-stage chemistry is undeniably genuine and natural. After more than a year of performing together, the duo headed to Nashville to start a new chapter in their musical career.
Country duos are a unique breed in the music industry. Two voices have to blend perfectly together, and that combination is often hard to find, even in two great singers. Against all odds, the duo has continued to persevere with their music and develop their sound, and found that with a lot hard work and passion that anything can be accomplished. After one year in Nashville industry executives began to take notice and SmithField began to open for established artists including Eric Paslay, Scotty McCreery, Jana Kramer, Dustin Lynch and Craig Campbell.
Mixing the heavily rock influenced background of Trey and the classical country tendency of Jennifer, SmithField creates a contemporary country sound that’s different and compelling. SmithField is set to make another splash this fall with their new single, “Good Ol’ Days.” The upbeat anthem is the perfect way to end summer and lead into their new EP being released this fall.
