About the Artists
Country singer-songwriter Lana Scott’s roots are in Virginia, yet she calls wherever she’s performing ‘home’. Recently relocated from the music scene in LA, she is fresh in Nashville’s. Lana’s most recent accomplishment was reaching the Top 8 Semi-Finals on the latest season of NBC’s The Voice. During her run she was labeled “Radio and tour ready” by Blake Shelton, “Songbird” by John Legend, “Perfectly packaged” by Ariana Grande, and “Unstoppable” by Kelly Clarkson. With subtle hints of Pam Tillis and Dolly Parton, she is known to marry the classic country sound with what’s current in pop/country radio today.
Her studio-recorded original arrangement of Katy Perry’s “The One That Got Away” debuted #28 on iTunes Top 100 Country Songs the day after her performance, making a statement of what she’s capable of. Lana’s driving force in life is to connect with people through music and conversation, spurring encouragement and a sense of zest wherever she can. She is set to begin releasing her original music this year!
For most artists trying to break in the entertainment industry, authenticity is the ultimate goal. While many artists search for a certain image or brand, rarely an artist will come along who seemingly doesn’t have to try to create this, he just is. Nick Hickman is such an artist. A modern country act hailing from Knoxville, TN, this now-Nashville-based singer-songwriter doesn’t try to mimic anything out there, and instead delivers a high-energy, genuine performance tempering a passionate show with heartfelt and genuine lyrics that are insanely catchy and singable. “What you see is what you get,” Hickman says. “I do not edit myself, I do not censor myself. I am just me.” It is exactly this unapologetic and real personality that draws so many to nick’s music.
Perhaps most refreshing, aside from Hickman’s talent and ability, is his work ethic. Anyone who knows nick personally knows the extent of his drive and his unwillingness to settle for anything less than top of the game.
“I want to sell out arenas, I want twenty #1s, I want to play 200 dates a year, I want to be a member of the grand ole opry, I want an ACM award and a Grammy. I will not stop or sleep until I have all of them. I do not care what it takes, what sacrifices have to be made, or how long.”
