Her current album, “Four The Record,” made history when it debuted atop Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, making Lambert the first country artist in the 47-year history of the chart to have each of her first four albums debut at number one.
A multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter, Bentley has forged his own brand of country music combining classic country songwriting, influences of bluegrass instrumentation and the energy of rock and roll. Bentley’s sixth studio album, “Home” released earlier this year, debuted at number one and has spawned three chart-topping hits. “Home” is currently nominated for three 2012 CMA award nominations for “Album of the Year” and “Single” and “Song of the Year” for its title track.
