Exclusive: Matt Mason dishes on touring with Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan, his other career path and his forthcoming EP

Matt Mason

Newcomer Matt Mason is slowly (but decidedly) building his brand from his Indiana upbringing. His background on such reality TV singing competitions asNashville Star and CMT's Next Superstar (he took the title in 2011) is simply a small piece of the puzzle. He's landed opening gigs on tours for Blake SheltonLuke Bryan and Little Big Town, but he still remains the down-to-earth person he's always been, something he notes is rather important in the overall scheme of things.

Dakota Bradley On Being Country Music’s Biggest Upcoming Star [INTERVIEW]

Dakota-bradley

18-year-old Dakota Bradley has fought hard to get to where he is; going through some difficult times during his teens, he teamed up with another aspiring artist and wrote 'The Girl Is Mine', which became a hit on YouTube. It was so much of a hit, in fact, that they were invited to perform on The Ellen Show, and it wasn't long before Dakota was writing with big producers, not least Tim McGraw, who ended up producing every song on the album after being really impressed with his talent. Dakota brings the powerful, raw energy of rock to his songs, but is

be around it every day is a dream come true.
