We krijgen regelmatig tips van onze contactpersoon bij The AristoMedia Group in Nashville. Deze tips betreffen dan meestal beginnende country artiesten die nog niet zijn doorgebroken bij het grote publiek. We zullen proberen je zo veel mogelijk op de hoogte te houden van deze tips.

Holly Tucker – “Dallas On Your Boots”
Holly Tucker has been singing and performing since she was 7 years old. As a child, she performed in a trio with her parents called “The Tuckers” and began opening for acts such as Willie Nelson, Neal McCoy, and Tracy Byrd in her teens. However, she truly burst out into the limelight during the 2015 season of the Voice when she was one of the few contestants to receive the “four chair turn” after her tryout. Of the 40,000 people to audition, Holly Tucker progressed all the way to the Top 6 with the help of Blake Shelton, who she chose as her coach. Appearing on the show led to a multitude of new opportunities including performing on The Voice tour, CMA Fest, and over 600 other live performances since. She has just completed her first full-length studio album titled STEEL which was produced in Nashville, TN at Jay Demarcus studio. She also put together her first official tour to go along with the release of the new album and has confirmed over 100 stops across the United States with new dates being added weekly. Although she likes to keep close to her home state Texas she regularly makes trips to Nashville to write with other songwriters and work on record projects. “Dallas On Your Boots” is a touching heartfelt song about love and letting go of the past that audiences from all kinds of backgrounds can relate to!
