Although country music sounds great in a stadium, it started out in the heart of the country. That’s why we’re partnering with iHeartRadio, Martina McBride, and some of country music’s biggest rising stars to celebrate all things country.


The Lineup

Country Crock

Martina McBride

Raised on a dairy farm in the small town of Sharon, Kansas, we’re proud to say that Martina is a long-time neighbor of ours. In addition to being nominated for 14 Grammy awards, she’s the author of multiple cookbooks. We’re honored to celebrate great music—and great food—alongside this country music legend.

Gabby Barrett

Spotlighted on several “Ones To Watch” lists for 2020, Gabby Barrett has quickly taken the country music world by storm. Her multi platinum debut single “I Hope” reached #1 on the country radio charts, is 2020’s most-streamed Country song to date, and has earned her a CMA nomination for Single of the Year. Boasting an additional CMA nomination and ACM nomination, Gabby is proving to be a rising star.

Jimmie Allen

An epitome of hard work and never giving up, Jimmie made history as the first Black artist to launch a career with two consecutive #1 hits on country radio: “Best Shot” and “Make Me Want To.” His unique fusion of country, rock, R&B, and pop has proven a hit with listeners everywhere and this year, he’s nominated for his first CMA, joining Gabby in the New Artist of the Year category.
