Billboard: Top Country Music Artists to Watch in 2017


    With the Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM Awards) on the horizon and the Billboard Music Awards in May, we thought it would be fitting to share who we think are the up and coming country artists to watch out for this year.

    The country music genre is filled with so much talent, from Luke Combs with his gritty sound and Brantley Gilbert-like edge to Runaway June with their sweet, country twang and beautiful harmonies. We are loving this new music and can’t wait to see more of these artists over the next few years.
