DISCOVER

There is something special about turning on the radio to hear a song you wrote playing back at you, a sentiment that doesn’t get lost for Barry Dean who could’ve been in an entirely different career in his home state of Kansas. The versatility seen in Dean's writing is one of the reasons why he has had multiple radio singles heard on both country and pop formats – which include three No. 1 hits with “Pontoon” and “Day Drinkin’” (Little Big Town) and "Think A Little Less" (Michael Ray). In 2015, Barry received a BMI Pop Award for co-writing the Top 40 hit, “Girls Chase Boys” (Ingrid Michaelson). He also co-wrote Tim McGraw’s Top 5 radio hit, “Diamond Rings And Old Barstools” which garnered him his first GRAMMY® nomination in 2016 and an NSAI award for “Songs I Wish I’d Written.”

Natalie Hemby
DISCOVER

One of the driving voices behind country radio is songwriter and Nashville native, Natalie Hemby, who has made a mark with a style and intensity that is uniquely hers. She has had six No. 1 singles, including Miranda Lambert’s No. 1 hit, “Automatic,” which received several award nominations including a GRAMMY® for Best Country Song. Throughout her career, Natalie has had multiple ACM, CMA and GRAMMY® nods and international chart success, most recently with Labrinth’s radio single “Jealous.” In the last year alone, Natalie had seven songs on Miranda Lambert’s album, four songs on Little Big Town’s album, a Blake Shelton cut and a song on Kelly Clarkson’s long-awaited release, Piece By Piece. It should come as no surprise that Natalie is revered as one of the top female writers of the industry.

She graduates this Winter from Belmont University where she won the school’s esteemed Country Music Showcase earlier this year. The showcase garnered attention from some of the industry’s top influencers, leading her to sign her first publishing deal with Creative Nation.

Her depth and magnetic charm is uniquely reflected in her songwriting, making it clear why she is becoming one of country music’s most buzzed about breakout acts.

Mags Duval
Mags Duval
DISCOVER

Mags Duval is a study in the magic only contradictions can make. She’s a could-be poet laureate who writes club bangers. She lives distinctly in the moment but is also a welcome throwback to vintage Hollywood glamour, a mix of beguiling sweetness, risky edge, and class. She’s private but candid, pulling from her own life to help others understand theirs.

“I feel so fortunate to be able to have my songs as an outlet for my life, my feelings,” Mags says from her home in Nashville. “To be able to give that to people––to provide an escape, help them feel understood and like they’re not alone. That’s what I want to do with my music.”

Music as a gift she can give to others is a theme 19-year-old Mags returns to again and again in conversation. “When I’m feeling something and don’t think there is a song I can jam out to to get me over it, I think, ‘Okay. I guess I need to write one. Because if I’m feeling this way, chances are there’s someone out there who’s feeling this too.’”

Mags started writing songs when she was about 9 years-old in Clearwater, Florida. The third of four children and the only daughter, she jokes that at first, her parents assumed her increasingly around-the-clock songwriting habit was just something little girls did. By the time she was 13, they realized there was more at work, and Mags recorded some songs in a local studio, which led to her first meetings in New York City.

While her parents were supportive, they were also adamant that Mags focus on school, remain a kid, and foster any relationships in the entertainment industry herself. “They told me from the very beginning, if you want to do this, it has to be run by you. We’re not going to send people emails,” Mags says. “At first, it was really difficult, because it was hard for me as a 13-year-old girl to get people to take me seriously.” A challenge––and one that she tackled beautifully.

In addition to wanting Mags to build her own career, her parents also nixed New York in favor of the doors that were opening in Nashville. After years of meetings and visits to co-write with other songwriters in town, Mags and her family relocated to Nashville in 2012. “Nashville has been incredible for me because I’m a songwriter first,” she says. “I wouldn’t do any of this if I didn’t write songs, and Nashville is a town that really values the art of songwriting.”

Mags signed with elite music publishing and management hive Creative Nation in 2013. Now, almost 20 years-old and already a veteran, Mags is ready to introduce the world to the distinct sound and finely crafted songs she’s always dreamed of making. Asked about the new nom de plume, she doesn’t miss a beat. “Mags is my nickname, what my closest friends and family call me. That’s the kind of relationship I want to have with the people who get to know me through my music.”

Co-produced by Grammy winner Luke Laird (Kacey Musgraves, Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton, Little Big Town, Eric Church, Tim McGraw) and John Hill (Eminem, Shakira, Snoop Lion, Pink, Christina Aguilera, Wu-Tang Clan, Jay Z), Mags’ new music proves it was more than worth the wait.

“Pop music has always been what I wanted to make––what I’ve always heard in my head,” Mags says. “But pop is such a big genre. I think you have to have more of a sense of self to be a pop artist who stands out now than ever before. It’s hard to create that from nothing and to find the right people to help you bring your vision to life.”

Mags’ sound defies easy categorization: smart storytelling layered over hooks that nod to 90s hip hop and iconic 50’s girl-group harmonies, all from a distinctly empowered female perspective. “I find power in femininity,” she says. “I love to dress up. It’s a huge part of my self-expression.”

First track “Stay Lonely” is a slow burning exercise in brazen honesty. “I don’t love you enough to be your lover / But I love you too much to be your friend / I want you to stay lonely / Cause if i can’t have you / Nobody else should have you,” Mags sings over percussive guitar and a thick beat. “It’s not always pretty,” Mags says with a laugh when asked about the roles we all play in relationships. “You don’t always get to be the good guy. There could be a lot of interpretations of this song, but I don’t think it’s ever intentionally mean.”

Moody and vivid, “Cinnamon Gum” relishes in being hung up on the wrong someone. Mags wrote the song after a few dates with a guy who made a strong impression but wasn’t the right fit. “There is strength in vulnerability,” she says. “I don’t think you have to act like everything’s okay to be strong.”

“Pink Cadillac” is a smash. Mags co-wrote the song with frequent collaborators April Geesbreght and Tiffany Vartanyan, who also sing harmony vocals on all of the new tracks. The three were on a writers’ retreat in Denver, walking to get coffee as Mags showed them her secret wedding board on Pinterest––“I think most girls have one!” she says with a laugh. One of the photos featured the bridal party in a pink Cadillac, and when her friends picked it as a favorite, Mags told them about her childhood dream car.

“My dad is in the car industry, and when I was little and at his showroom, I’d sit behind the wheel of his business partner’s pink Cadillac and pretend to drive it. I’d look at my dad and say, ‘This is going to be my car someday, right?’ and he’d say, ‘Yeah, baby girl, of course.’ So then out of nowhere Tiffany began singing the hook, “Hey baby girl, whatcha lookin’ at, lookin’ at? / Daddy, I want that! I want that!’

“It felt like we were in a school yard,” Mags says happily. “We started walking and just singing the refrain.” The resulting “Pink Cadillac” sounds like a street party, all claps, chants, and winking loops.

When asked what she hopes listeners get out of the new music, Mags is her signature blend of pensive and lighthearted. “I hope people feel that it’s honest. I hope they can dance to it. And I hope they can drive at night to it,” she says, pausing for a moment before adding, “I hope it becomes a part of people’s lives and gets them through things.”

Muscadine Bloodline
Muscadine Bloodline
DISCOVER

Muscadine Bloodline's Gary Stanton and Charlie Muncaster both grew up playing music in Mobile, Alabama, with mutual friends saying they should connect. But their first official meeting didn't happen until about six years ago, when Muncaster's college band was playing a show in Mobile and needed an opening act. Stanton got the call. During his junior year at the University of Southern Mississippi, Stanton started his own band and the two began swapping opening slots and writing together.

After graduation in 2015, Stanton headed to Nashville while Muncaster commuted from Alabama to play and write with him. In October of that year, Muncaster made his move and, the very next week, the guys were in the studio cutting three songs. Muscadine Bloodline became a reality upon their release in December 2015, and “we haven't looked back since,” Stanton says.

They have, however, spent most of their weekends on the road, gigging across the Southland because they believe in making their fans the old-fashioned way: by earning them, one at a time. “We really want to 'grassroots' Muscadine Bloodline,” Muncaster says. “It’s cool to watch it grow town by town — coming back to a town and more people are there. That is hard to do these days, but it truly is the definition of staying true to yourself and the music you put out.”

With a soulfulness in their harmonies and a catchiness in their hooks, the music Muscadine Bloodline puts out echoes the combination of classic country and Southern rock they both grew up listening to, from the Eagles and Lynyrd Skynyrd to Eric Church and Blackberry Smoke.

Unlike many artists in contemporary country, Muscadine Bloodline leans away from frivolity and into earnestness, a reflection of their own lives and loves. Thinking about country music, Stanton notes, “I fell in love with the stories, not the sound. As a writer, it is cool to put myself in a situation, whether it directly applies to me or not. That’s why I love country music and that’s why we love writing about real topics, instead of party anthems.”

Muscadine Bloodline's brand of country music tells stories of new highways and old memories. As their own story is only just beginning, how do they hope it all unfolds? “We’d be lying if we said we wouldn’t want to be the most successful duo there ever was, but we just really want to play good, honest music that moves hearts and not hips,” Stanton says. “But sometimes they can go hand-in-hand.”
