In addition to the Country Throwdown main stages, Nashville's Bluebird Cafe is sponsoring a tent featuring nine emerging singer-songwriters, including Ashley Ray, Brad Tursi, Cory Branan, Dave Pahanish, Heather Morgan, Jedd Hughes, Sarah Buxton, Troy Olson and Walker Hayes. And if you're not familiar with these artists, there's a good chance you know them somewhat indirectly: Ashley Ray wrote Wade Bowen's current single "Matches"; Dave Pahanish wrote Toby Keith's #1 hit "American Ride and Jimmy Wayne's #1 hit "Do You Believe Me Now?"; Sarah Buxton co-wrote "Stupid Boy" which went on to win Keith Urban a Grammy for "Best Male Country Vocal Performance" in 2007; and Troy Olsen Co-wrote "I'll Just Hold On," the Top 5 single by Blake Shelton.
Pretty cool, huh? And what's even cooler is that Ashley Ray is going to cover the whole Country Throwdown Tour for Yallwire by doing weekly video recaps. So why not get in boot-scootin' mode with a free 7-song sampler featuring Jack Ingram, Eli Young Band, Jonathan Singleton & The Grove, Ryan Bingham, Sarah Buxton, Jedd Hughes and Cory Branan?
