His most recent album HOME debuted at number on the Billboard Country Album Charts and spawned three consecutive chart-topping hits, marking 10 career number one songs for Dierks as a singer and songwriter. His five previous studio albums have sold more than five million copies and earned 11 GRAMMY nominations and an invitation to join the Grand Ole Opry. Dierks recently released his new single “I Hold On” off his upcoming album RISER.

of classics. Danielle’s covers of top Country songs landed her on the top of the iTunes Country Chart multiple times throughout the season, making her the highest selling artist in the show's history. She joins the likes of Javier Colon, Little Big Town, Nicole Henry, Arturo Sandoval, Katherine McPhee, Cece Winans, Ruben Studdard and Yolanda Adams to perform the National Anthem at the Orange Bowl.
