ABOUT SHY CARTER
Songwriter, artist and producer Shy Carter has reached all corners of the industry with his early success. With credits that span Kane Brown’s “Heaven” to Charlie Puth’s “One Call Away,” Carter is one of the most formidable up-and-coming talents in Nashville and beyond. He is among the writers behind Billy Currington's “It Don't Hurt Like it Used To,” Sugarland’s smash hit “Stuck Like Glue” and Rob Thomas’ single “Someday.” In addition to his feature on Tim McGraw’s “Way Down,” Carter has collaborated with Keith Urban on both “Never Comin’ Down” and “My Wave.” Named to Variety’s 2018 Hitmakers list, he has also worked with Jason Derulo, Meghan Trainor, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Lopez, Nelly and more. His roots in gospel, jazz, R&B and soul developed into an early career in hip-hop, but his gift for storytelling and love of organic instrumentation led to a natural transition into country music. Now, with a transcendent style perfectly suited to the times, he’s ready to stand on his own as a country artist. With its earthy groove, laid-back beat and unflagging spirit, Carter’s debut radio single “Good Love” is a fitting introduction to the man behind the music. Described as “a breezy, inspirational anthem with skittering high-hats and crisp piano… [that] underscores Carter’s grand ambitions” (Rolling Stone), “Good Love” and his second Warner Music Nashville release “All Night” are available now. The born entertainer closed out the year visiting radio stations and media partners across the nation on his first-of-its-kind, socially distanced radio tour and has been named a 2021 Artist to Watch by Amazon Music, MusicRow magazine, Pandora, Sounds Like Nashville and more.
With a sound she describes as ‘R&B country,’ Alabama-native, Tiera, is emerging as one of the newest and most exciting voices in the genre with her rich and soulful vocals. Tiera kicked off the new year with recognition from Spotify’s Hot Country, Teen Vogue, CMT, Sounds Like Nashville, Nashville Lifestyles and Country Now as an Artist to Watch in 2021, proving her momentum from 2020 is only just the beginning.
After discovering her voice at a young age, she taught herself how to play the guitar by watching YouTube videos and decided to pursue a career in music. Tiera performed at venues around her hometown of Birmingham, AL where she honed her songwriting abilities. Trips to Nashville led to performances at iconic venues like the Bluebird Cafe and The Listening Room, earning opening spots for legendary country acts like the Charlie Daniels Band and Rodney Atkins.
Over the last calendar year, Tiera signed her first publishing deal with Songs & Daughters as the flagship songwriter for Nicolle Galyon’s female-driven publishing house, she was inducted into CMT's ‘Next Women of Country’ and ‘Listen Up’ Class of 2020 and was honored by the AIMP for their Rising Songwriters Class of 2020. In August, Apple Music launched Apple Music Country radio station where Tiera joined some of Country’s biggest names to host her own daily radio show about up-and-coming artists.
New music is on the horizon for Tiera as she continues to share her sound with fans and build on the critical acclaim she’s already earned from Rolling Stone, Billboard, Don’t Rock The Inbox, Teen Vogue, American Songwriter, People and many more. On March 12, 2021, Tiera will release her debut EP that will include “Miles” ft. breakout star BRELAND and feature track “Not Your Girl.”
About Jimmie Allen
Signed to BBR Music Group’s Stoney Creek Records, Jimmie Allen has already made history as the first black artist to launch a career with two consecutive No. 1 hits on country radio – the first being his debut single “Best Shot” – which claimed the No. 1 spot for three weeks – and second being his latest single “Make Me Want To” off his debut album Mercury Lane, released fall 2018. Named in tribute to the street he grew up on and the origin of his incredible journey, Mercury Lane features a cutting-edge mix of country, rock, R&B, and pop that draws upon the influence of his family and small-town upbringing of the critically-acclaimed rising star. Rolling Stone raved Allen’s debut “challenges the narrowly defined model of what constitutes a next big thing in country music in 2018” and The New York Times dubbed it one of 2018’s strongest, calling it “a conventional country album, filled with songs about the small details.” Jimmie’s most recent single “This Is Us” features Noah Cyrus and marks Allen’s fastest consuming single, with 30 million streams to date. His latest project Bettie James, released in July 2020, is a star-studded collaboration EP featuring Brad Paisley, Charley Pride, Darius Rucker, Mickey Guyton, Nelly, Cyrus, The Oak Ridge Boys, Rita Wilson, Tauren Wells & Tim McGraw. Wanting to weave his late father and late grandmother’s legacies into his music, Jimmie named the project after them, with each featured artist on the project having touched their respective lives through their own music. The result is a musical composition of love, heartbreak, perseverance, hope, and faith.
