Friday, May 20 - Chris Ruediger

Chris Ruediger may be from just outside of Boston, but his signature country sound has scored big all the way from New England to Nashville. As a kid, his musical influences ranged from Bruce Springsteen to Tim McGraw. When he started training on the piano and moved into acoustic guitar, Chris fell hard in love with country music. 
          Chris was soon playing small shows at restaurants and bars, garnering a devoted local following. It didn’t take long for him to start hitting a new type of home run: New England radio stations 101.7 The Bull and Country 102.5 began playing his songs. Chris packed his bags and headed for Nashville, where he attended Vanderbilt University and soaked up the sounds and culture of Music City. 
          In the fall of 2021, Chris unveiled his debut EP, Kid Anymore. Filled with the relatable truth-telling, the record moves through four different areas of the artist’s life as he matured into adulthood – from music and memories with his dad, nightlife filled with his fraternity brothers and friends, the girl who moved away, and a phone call to his mom where he discussed the frightening yet freeing realization that he was ready to be a man.   
          “This music is really personal,” said Chris of the process of creating Kid Anymore. “The songs are so deeply rooted in my own life that I hope people connect with them.”

Friday, June 17- Jenny Tolman

Sweet yet sassy, vintage yet fresh, an old soul with a new vision and some incredible comedic timing, the intriguing country music songstress is the breath of fresh air that the genre needs now.
Having woven the incredible storyline of her life into her music thus far, Tolman has found a way to create albums which tie up all that life has handed her – both the good and the bad and the downright tragic – and makes it sound beautiful. “She is practically single handedly bringing humor back to country music and deserves our heartiest applause for doing so,” longtime MusicRow contributor Robert K Oermann explains. 
 

In 2020, Tolman released her debut album There Goes the Neighborhood, a 13-song concept album of sorts in which Tolman found herself playing a long list of roles and characters within a melodic, made-up story. The project debuted in the Top 25 of Billboard’s Country Album Sales Chart and finished off the year being named as one of the top country albums of the year by Rolling Stone.
