About the Artists
Growing up in Kentucky and Indiana, Rachel Horter began her love for singing and entertaining from an early age that continued into her high school days. After graduating, she decided to put off college and move to Nashville to pursue her dream of becoming an artist.
Since then, she has played at many venues and events all over Nashville and the US, also enjoying her weekly gig at Blake Shelton’s Ole Red in downtown Nashville. She had the opportunity to tour in Germany, and one of her most memorable shows was an opening performance for country music legend, Loretta Lynn. Rachel also has had several placements of Christmas songs in various movies on the Hallmark Channel and she enjoys recording covers for her YouTube channel, which has garnered her over 6 million views and tens of thousands of subscribers.
Rachel’s debut EP “Lucky” is available now on all platforms, featuring her single “How Lucky” and it’s accompanying music video that is on her YouTube channel. She is currently working on finishing up her next project and continuing to write for even more after that.
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.”
