Rascal Flats are one of today’s very successful country bands. They did an excellent cover of Tom Cochrane’s “Life is a Highway” a few years ago which was a hit. This prolific band has released nine albums since 2000, seven of which have gone platinum (or higher). Twelve of their singles have gone to Number One.

Sheryl Crow has a golden voice. Since she made a splash on the music scene with her first single “All I Wanna Do,” and her first album Tuesday Night Music Club, Sheryl Crow has been a mainstay in the music scene. Her captivating duet with Kid Rock “Picture” really showed her depth of emotion. Ms. Crow has released ten albums to date. Some of her work has been featured in movies.

Gloriana is an American country band which was formed in 2008 and garnered their first Top 40 hit with “(Kissed You) Good Night” in 2012. They have two albums to their credit, the last being A Thousand Miles Left Behind.
