Tim McGraw is scheduled to close out the first day of BamaJam 2012 on June 14. McGraw’s most recent studio album, ‘Emotional Traffic,’ was released on January 24 and debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. The first single, “Felt Good on My Lips,” hit #1 and remained there for three consecutive weeks.
His recent single, “Better than I Used to Be,” is currently at #20 on the Billboard Country chart and climbing. McGraw’s accolades include three GRAMMY© awards, 14 Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM), 11 Country Music Association Awards (CMA) and three People’s Choice Awards. He has starred in such blockbuster movies as “Blind Side,” “Country Strong” and “Friday Night Lights.”
Zac Brown Band will take the stage to headline Friday’s BamaJam2012 performances. Zac Brown Band has become one of the most-sought-after groups on the touring market. 2008’s double-platinum project ‘The Foundation’ was the first major-label debut album in 18 years to spawn five #1 singles including “Chicken Fried” and “Free.”
The band recently earned four GRAMMY© nominations including "Best Country Album" for their sophomore release, You Get What You Give, and five CMA award nominations including "Entertainer of the Year." Previous awards include the 2010 GRAMMY© award for "Best New Artist," 2010 CMA award for "New Artist of the Year," 2009 ACM win for "Top New Vocal Group" and the 2009 "USA Weekend Breakthrough Video of the Year" award from CMT for their video "Chicken Fried."
Kid Rock is scheduled to close out the final day of performances at BamaJam 2012. Racking up sales of almost 25 million units from eight studio albums since 1998, Rock is one of the biggest concert draws in the touring industry. Released in 2007, ‘Rock ‘N Roll Jesus’ was the biggest-selling rock album of 2008 and not only debuted at #1 but stayed on the charts for 100 weeks.
In November 2010, Atlantic Records released the platinum-selling ‘Born Free,’ which was inspired by events taking place in Rock’s hometown of Detroit, Mich. A five-time GRAMMY© nominee, Kid Rock has received numerous awards including American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, CMT Music Awards (which he also hosted in 2010 and 2011) and People’s Choice Awards, among others.
Darryl Worley will perform and host the opening night of BamaJam 2012. Worley has hit the country charts more than 20 times over the past decade. His chart-toppers include “I Miss My Friend,” “Awful, Beautiful Life” and the iconic “Have You Forgotten.” Darryl’s latest album, ‘One Time Around,’ will be released in June 2012, and the first single, “You Still Got It,” will begin hitting radio March 19, 2012.
