A winner of six Grammy Awards and eight Country Music Awards, just to name a few of his accomplishments, Ronnie Milsap delivers a blend of pop, rock and R&B elements to test country’s borders, and did so in a way that connected fiercely with the music-buying public. He compiled 40 number one country hits. Milsap’s sales accrued eight gold albums; his Greatest Hits made him one of the first acts in any genre to obtain double-platinum status after the RIAA introduced the multi-platinum honor in 1984.
Milsap set the standard for thinking outside of country’s proverbial box, a practice made popular by many of today’s country stars. This unique approach led to Milsap’s 2014 album, Summer Number Seventeen, an album of important songs which Milsap built his musical persona over his successful career. From “Mack The Knife” to "Mustang Sally" and “What’s Become of the Broken Hearted,” it is a release filled with classics.
Daughtry has scored four No. 1 hits, garnered four Grammy nominations, won four American Music Awards, sold over 8 million albums, 18 million singles worldwide and sold out concerts around the world.

Daughtry’s singles “Waiting For Superman" and "Battleships broke into the top 15 from his most recent album Baptized.
Tim Allen is one of America’s most beloved actor/comedians. He stars on the hit ABC sitcom “Last Man Standing” and can also be seen performing stand-up to sold-out crowds at venues across the country.
The voice of Pure Michigan, Allen honed his talents as a stand-up at regional comedy clubs while also working a day job at a Detroit area advertising agency. It wasn’t long until Hollywood executives saw him on stage and signed him to star in the ABC series “Home Improvement” for which he received a Golden Globe Award, an Emmy nomination, and was honored with the People’s Choice Award for “Favorite Male Performer in a Television Series” for an unprecedented eight years in a row.
Allen made his film debut in 1994 playing a holiday icon in “The Santa Clause,” earning him another People’s Choice Award. In 1995, he voiced Buzz Lightyear in the blockbuster hit “Toy Story” and went on to reprise his role in “Toy Story 2” and the Oscar-winning “Toy Story 3.” His other film credits include the hit films “Galaxy Quest,” “Wild Hogs,” “The Shaggy Dog,” “Jungle 2 Jungle” and “For Richer Or Poorer.”
