Joe Nichols, Chase Bryant & Lauren Jenkins to perform at CCMF
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Mar. 4, 2016) ― Carolina Country Music Fest (CCMF) in conjunction with Full House Productions (FHP) announces the addition of Joe Nichols to the lineup of country stars taking the stage during the Southeast’s premier country music fest, June 10-12, 2016.
Nichols started in the industry in 1996, but found major success with his second album titled Man with a Memory released in 2013. His single “The Impossible” went on to become No. 3 on the Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts (now called Hot Country songs charts). Man with a Memory earned Nichols a Top New Male Vocalist Award from the Academy of Country Music, three Grammy Award nominations and a platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
Joining Nichols on the Coors Light Main Stage is newcomer Chase Bryant. Bryant’s musical upbringing led him down the path of becoming a country artist; his grandfather played piano for Roy Orbison’s first two bands. Bryant’s debut single “Take It On Back”, hit the top 10 of Billboard’s Country Airplay chart. The singer-songwriter has also opened for fellow CCMF headliner Tim McGraw on his 2015 Shotgun Rider Tour.
Accompanying Nichols and Bryant in the CCMF lineup is Texas-native, Lauren Jenkins. Jenkins left home at 15 to pursue her dream of becoming a star country artist. Her cover of Mötley Crüe’s “Looks That Kill” was her debut to the country world. Jenkins caught the attention of Billboard Magazine and was named to Billboard’s 10 Hot Country Artists to Watch in 2015. Jenkins will be performing on the Jack Daniel’s Fire Stage in June.
