About the Artists
After snagging a spot on Team Blake during Season 3 of NBC’s The Voice, performing on Today Show, and being in Miranda Lambert’s Tequila Does (Telemitry Remix) music video, Krystal Steel is stepping out in a fresh direction that is uniquely her own. Krystal serves up show-stopping performances and laughs with her big voice and personality, alongside her band Loose Cougar every week in Nashville. Krystal and her band are truly an experience; proving that good music, talent, and showmanship never go out of style.
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.”
