North at a glance



North - J.T. Harding and Uncle Kracker

This is sure to be a fun and rowdy way to kick off the week of virtual Tin Pan South. Both hailing from Michigan, J.T. Harding is a Nashville treasure who has penned familiar hits such as "Sangria" (Blake Shelton) and "Somewhere With You" (Kenny Chesney) as well as the smash song "Smile" recorded by the other incredible writer and artist in this round, Uncle Kracker! Uncle Kracker has penned several hits himself including Kid Rock's "Cowboy" and his massive hit "Follow Me" which topped the charts in 8 countries!



North - Eric Bazilian, Jim Peterik, Kristal Tytewriter

The Recording Academy brings us an eclectic mix from the Northern geography of the US. Kristal TyteWriter is a 2x Grammy nominated, platinum singer/songwriter who has worked with the likes of Justin Timberlake, Kanye West, Sean 'Diddy' Combs and many more. Founding member of the rock band The Hooters, Eric Bazilian is perhaps best known for writing Joan Osborne's massive hit "One of Us," but he also has cuts with everyone from Ricky Martin to Bon Jovi to Cyndi Lauper. Last but certainly not least, Chicago native, Jim Peterik will bring the heat with rock classics like "Eye of the Tiger," "Vehicle" and "Hold On Loosely." This show should be "Rockin' into the Night."



North - Kelly Archer, Victoria Banks, Deric Ruttan

How could we highlight the "North" without a nod to Canada. Native Canadians, all three of these writers have made it big in Nashville as well. Victoria Banks has earned awards as both Female Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year at the Canadian Country Music Awards (CCMA) and is a writer on Mickey Guyton's acclaimed new culturally significant single "What Are You Gonna Tell Her?" Banks and Deric Ruttan attended high school and performed in a band together in Ontario before they each made their treks south to Nashville. Also a winner of multiple CCMA's, he's also been nominated for a Grammy for "Mine Would Be You" (Blake Shelton) and enjoyed further success with songs like "Any Ol' Barstool" (Jason Aldean) and "What Was I Thinkin'" (Dierks Bentley). Rounding out the Canadians is Kelly Archer hailing from Vancouver. In addition to the hit singles she has enjoyed in Canada, Kelly has had recent success with singles such as Travis Denning's "After A Few," Justin Moore's "Somebody Else Will" and Brett Young's "Sleep Without You."
