Becky Hobbs: Whiskey-voiced Becky Hobbs is one-of-a-kind. She is a gifted songwriter, as well as a captivating entertainer.

Amanda Williams: As daughter of Nashville Songwriter Hall of Fame Member Kim Williams (“Three Wooden Crosses” Randy Travis, “Ain’t Goin’ Down Till the Sun Comes Up” Garth Brooks), Williams knows the ins and outs of the music industry first hand. Upon graduating from Berklee College of Music in Boston with a magna cum laude degree in Music Business and Management, she returned to Nashville to pursue her career in 1999, the year Napster turned the industry on its head.
