I’m to Blame was released in 2015
Moore is growing in popularity and won New Artist of the Year in 2014.

Maddie and Tae went Gold with their single Girl in a Country Song. The group’s first studio album Maddie & Tae reached #28 on the country music charts. The girls also released Fly in 2015.
Smith is the final opening act. Active since 2011, this country pop singer is best known for his singles: We Got Us and Love You Like That.
