Johnny Bulford

Johnny Bulford is a name to be known in Nashville. Growing up in a home filled with music it was natural for Bulford to realize and hone his passions from an early age. Performing throughout high school and college, Bulford won the national singing competition Colgate Country Showdown in 2008 and secured a publishing contract from Warner Chapell Music shortly thereafter. 2011 was a great year for Bulford – he had his song “Flashlight”, co-written with RCA artist Chris Young, cut on Young’s 2011 album “Neon”, and secured his first #1 hit with Lee Brice’s “A Woman Like You”. Honored at the 42nd Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame Dinner for “A Woman Like You”, Bulford stood on stage not far from his idol, Garth Brooks. Continuing to tour the Southeast with his own band, Bulford is captivating audiences with his showmanship, boy-next-door personality and beautifully written originals while his newest single, “Lonely Eyes” by Chris Young is quickly climbing the charts. He has already opened shows for many major country acts including Collin Raye, The Warren Brothers, Josh Turner, Emerson Drive, Chris Cagle, Diamond Rio, Tracy Lawrence, Tanya Tucker, Montgomery Gentry, John Anderson, Gretchen Wilson, Blake Shelton and Jamey Johnson among others.Bulford continues to pen hits with Warner as well as perform at writers’ rounds in and around Nashville and writers festivals and events worldwide.

Tyler Reeve

One of Nashville’s hottest new songwriters and artists, Tyler Reeve, may look like everybody’s All-American with his flipped ball cap and quarterback shoulders, but his lyrics are light on tailgates and dirt roads, and heavy on memory-evoking imagery. Tyler came to Nashville by way of Mobile, Alabama, detouring through Florida for college (FSU), then Georgia to launch his performing career. With the encouragement of business associates and the respectable fan base he had built, Reeve began visiting Nashville to explore the music business. A pocketful of well-crafted tunes opened the door to well-established co-writers who helped him further refine his already innate talent. Tyler is signed with Erv Woolsey, who has managed George Strait since 1978.

Jesse Lee

Three songs. That is all it took for Atlantic Records chairman and CEO, Craig Kallman, to sign Jesse Lee at the ripe age of 20. Kallman credits the gifted Lee for inspiring him to take a plunge back into country in a major way. “She reminds me of a modern-day Patsy Cline, with an amazing voice, a magnetic personality and, of course, a tremendous gift for songwriting.”
With a fierce determination to see her dreams and aspirations come to life, Jesse is now enjoying the success she has worked so hard for. In 2016, Jesse co-wrote Kelsea Ballerini’s #1 hit, “Peter Pan”, Keith Urban recorded her song “That Could Still Be Us” on his platinum selling album Ripcord, and her song “Feels Like Christmas” was recorded by the acapella group, Straight No Chaser for their ‘I’ll Have Another…Christmas Album.’ In 2017, Jesse was awarded “Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year” by Music Row. This same year, at the annual NSAI Awards, “Peter Pan” was voted as one of the ’10 Songs I Wish I’d Written’ by her fellow songwriter peers. As if this year couldn’t get any better, Jesse saw her song “Like I Loved You”, co-written with and sung by Brett Young, soar up the charts to the #1 spot for 3 weeks. This became Jesse’s second, back-to-back #1. On the artist side, Jesse has worked with Grammy Award winning producers Mark Bright (Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts), Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift), and Paul Worley (Dixie Chicks, Martina McBride, Lady Antebellum).
