Funny How Fast These Things Happen with Cale Dodds

We were thrilled to see Cale Dodds on Rolling Stone’s list of “New Country Artists You Need To Know” and we couldn’t agree more! Not only does he have a buttery smooth, deep voice, but his videos are really easy on the eyes (know what we mean?!).

Dodds signed with Warner Music Nashville in early 2017 and released his debut single, “Take You Back," which has been embraced with open arms -- reaching well over 1.5 million streams -- by fans on Spotify. His other single “All Over” has over 2.5 million streams.

It is clear country fans have fallen in love with Cale and we are excited to have him join us out in wine country for Live in the Vineyard! He will be on stage alongside Maddie & Tae, Eric Paslay, and Jerrod Niemann for a country style "Artist in the Round" Tailgate, which is always a treat for all in attendance.  

Be sure to check out his “Cale Cam” YouTube series, and if you’re a huge fan, you can sign up for his mailing list as he'll send you #CaleCam videos the day before he posts them! DO IT.

Maddie and Tae Waitin’ on a Plane - To Napa!

Signed by Dot Records in 2014, the two debuted START HERE, which quickly climbed to the top of Country radio charts. This PLATINUM-certified album certainly became a crowd favorite, with hit singles like “Fly,” “Girl In A Country Song,” and “Sierra.”

But creating amazing music isn’t all they can do! The pair partnered with Bloomingdale’s in 2016 to develop AQUA x Maddie & Tae, a Spring Capsule Collection embodying their sense of adventure and spirit.

Parmalee Will Bring The Music

Since 2001, brothers Matt and Scott Thomas, cousin Barry Knox, and friend Josh McSwain have been on the road chasing their aspirations of becoming a country-rock band. Paying homage to their southern roots, they named their breakout single “Carolina” which is now a Platinum-certified hit.


Along with their hard work and dedication, the group has released several more singles, some of which include “Close Your Eyes,” “Already Callin’ You Mine,” and from their second album, “Sunday Morning.” Named after their hometown’s zip code, 27861 proves Parmalee’s visionary musical talent while still staying true to themselves.

With smooth harmonies laced with a touch of rock-and-roll spirit, this country group has got entertaining down to a science.

Can it just be May 16th already? We’re on edge waiting to hear their live set!

You Need To Know Ashley McBryde

Arkansas native, soulful singer, and fearless songwriter Ashley McBryde will be on our Main Stage at this year’s Live in the Vineyard Goes Country festival!

Ashley McBryde

Known for her hit single, “A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega,” McBryde has been dubbed as one of Rolling Stone’s Artists You Need To Know for showcasing an honest in-all approach that epitomizes great storytelling.

She started her journey on the country music road back in 2007 by moving to Nashville, and later self-released her first EP, Jalopies & Expensive Guitars, scoring her opening slots for Eric Church and Chris Stapleton.

By listening to one of her songs, you can tell McBryde draws her inspiration from real life experiences and is not afraid to share the stone cold truth. Her second album, Girl Going Nowhere, does just this with a little bit of fire and fury, and all country spirit!

She might just become your new favorite whiskey-drinking, spunky country singers.
