About Kelleigh Bannen:
EMI Nashville recording artist Kelleigh Bannen is a Nashville native who always dreamed of becoming an artist. After graduating from college in Virginia, Bannen made her way back to her hometown, where she began to write and craft her sound. It was while on the “90in90” tour, in which Kelleigh played 90 gigs in 90 days to benefit the Butler Center for research that she connected with legendary country producer Paul Worley (Lady Antebellum, Martina McBride).

Hailing from a small town called Dixon in Northern California, Jon Pardi’s first taste of country music stardom started in his Grandmother’s house at the tender age of 3.

Determined to make his dream of country music fame a reality, Pardi moved to Nashville at 22 years old, where his unique musical style led to a record deal with Capitol Records Nashville. Pardi has shared the stage with Eric Church, Zac Brown Band, Dierks Bentley, Pat Green, Gary Allan and Luke Bryan. Pardi’s first single “Missin’ You Crazy” is out at country radio now.
