Key Signature Premium: National Touring Artists For Festivals

Did you know that you can book a national performing artist for festival-style events? We primarily receive requests for local and regional acts to play for private events, but national performing artists can often be part of the conversation for festivals and concert series events too. Continue reading for information about two national country artists we booked for an event in 2019, and a few details you should keep in mind when considering a national artist for yours.

Joe Nichols

National Country Artist Terri Clark

Known for early radio hits like “The Impossible” and “Home Run” and a style that blends the old in with the new, Joe Nichols has forged his own unique path into the timeline of country music history. Because of his impressive resume and kind personality, Key Signature Entertainment was ecstatic to be able to work with him. We booked and helped produce his performance at the 2019 Jiggy with the Piggy barbecue festival in Kannapolis, NC. His set was supported by Triad-area country band Michael Cosner & the Fugitives.

Chase Bryant

National Country Artist Terri Clark

Born and raised in Orange Grove, TX, Chase Bryant comes from a family of country music performers who have shared the stage with legends like Waylon Jennings. Therefore, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he became a prolific new-school country guitar player and songwriter on his own merit. Bryant has penned hits like “Little Bit of You” and “Take It On Back,” which he performed at the event. Like with Mr. Nichols, we had the privilege to book and help produce Bryant’s headlining slot on day two of Jiggy with the Piggy, supported by Charlotte favorites Diamonds & Whiskey.

Who We Are

Company Profile:

Brandon Crumpton, owner of Key Signature Entertainment, started booking live music for events over 15 years ago. He has lead the company through a growth period booking and producing entertainment to an average of over 700 events a year. Key Signature Entertainment has 2 full time employees and has developed an event staff to assist with larger, award winning events through out the season. Key Signature Entertainment was recently chosen as the 2018 Service Partner of the Year by the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority. This honor was voted on by key decision makers in the hospitality and events industry.

Early in his career, Brandon realized that event professionals and musicians speak a different language. He noticed that both were trying to achieve the same results, but just went about the process differently. He built Key Signature Entertainment with the goal of bridging that communication gap so that both musicians and event professionals could produce successful events effectively and efficiently.
