Kelly Hope, Wait For Tomorrow
Kelly Hope is a 23-year old singer-songwriter taking on the country music world by storm. Based in Albury, NSW, Kelly has been performing and writing her own songs since the age of 14. Kelly released her self-titled debut album late 2006, with the first single HEARTBREAK ROAD making the Top 30 on the Top 100 Country Hits chart as well as making the 2007 Top 100 Country Hits Of the Year at 97, with the accompanying filmclip seen on CMC. But her achievements as a singer/songwriter began many years ago. After some success in various talent quests culminating in a win at Echuca Moama’s Country Music Festival in 2003, where she won a trip for two, to entertain on the Tamworth Country Music Train. She released her debut ep SUMMER TRAIN in 2003, containing four covers and two originals titled WAIT FOR TOMORROW and SUMMER TRAIN. In 2005, Kelly was named a Top 20 Toyota Starmaker Finalist, and onstage she’s been the main attraction of both International and Australian crowds ever since. With powerful vocals and strong lyrics, Kelly’s originality and stage presence is like no other in the country music industry. Late 2005, Kelly completed her first US tour including studio time with one of Nashville’s most prestigious producers Bill Warner (Faith Hill, Alan Jackson, Jewel, Natalie Imbruglia). It was here that she was introduced to legendary country songwriter Jim Owens who has written songs for many of Country’s greats including Hank Williams, George Jones, and Loretta Lyn. Jim was so impressed by Kelly’s talent that he insisted that she record one of his songs YOU MAKE ME WANNA CHEAT. This track, along with nine originals, is included on Kelly’s debut album. In January 2007, Kelly graduated from the Tamworth College of Country Music. Kelly’s single YOU’RE NOT MY UTE has again hit the mark with radio gracing the Top 40 on the Top 100 Country Hits chart, and can be seen on CMC. Her determination to succeed will ensure she can overcome anything life throws her way. “The most important thing is to make the most of every opportunity. This is just the beginning for me. The best is yet to come.”
Gary & Carol Bibb, Why Wait
Born and raised in Missouri, husband & wife Gary & Carol Bibb write and sing songs about life issues, hope, and love as an expression of how they live their lives in relationship with people and each other. Thanks to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for the words, melody and music to our songs. “Why Wait” is a song about choosing to admit when we have a wrong attitude toward one another, along with a conviction in our heart, the importance to make things right with one another. May the “message of this song” help be a stepping stone to a deeper closeness and love for one another as husbands, wives and children (the family). Our love and appreciation we extend to our daughter Kimberly Bibb-Marrs on fiddle, our son (in law) Larry Marrs who produces, arranges and plays bass and drums (along with anything else that is needed), Robby Turner on steel guitar (friend and gifted musician), and our grandchildren Katie and Jonathan Marrs singing at the tag of the song. They were very young when they recorded this special part. Loving each other as we forgive before the “sun goes down”, brings a ray of Sonshine, Hope, and a Future to the Family!
Love in Jesus, Gary & Carol Bibb

Joe Navrath, Mom
Joe Navrath was born and raised in Oklahoma where he still resides today. Presently he lives on his farm and ranch in rural Lincoln County near Prague, OK. His agricultural roots run deep, as he not only grew up on a farm, but also graduated from Oklahoma State University and taught vocational agriculture for many years. It was while at his first teaching position in Wyoming, that Joe became interested in singing and songwriting. Upon moving back to Oklahoma Joe further developed his unique songwriting style. Joe is a gifted songwriter, and has written every song on the CD himself, and it is that gift and unique styling that always leads his fans to ask when he is going to have a new CD coming out, because they "just have got to have it". Joe has a "clearly-country" style, reminding you of the styles of the "Good 'ole Boys" of country music. His innate sense of humour is also a strong part of his musical writings. In such songs as in the dance song, "Okie Dokie" and "Setting George Straight" his love of "word" humour shines through. His family values and down-home country soul shows beautifully in the tribute song, "Daddy's Belt". He is a great country music storyteller and that is clear in the songs "How Can I Go Wrong" and "What Makes A Man Go Crazy". His romantic heart shows in the tragic love song, "Stolen Moments" about the relationship between a married couple that are not married to each other and in the title track, "Looking" about the break up of a relationship and a cowboy's hope that his "Cowboy Wife" will return. Joe has a great ability to touch your funny bone in one song and in the next song, touch your soft side. In 2002, Joe founded his own publishing company, Sugartime Music Publishing and a record label, Sugartime Productions. In addition, Joe, along with his son Laramie, started Sugartime Recording Studio to assist singers and musicians develop their musicial ambitions.
Andrew Dean, One Life (the Tommy Dean song), In The Garden
With a tank full of fuel.....this super-charged entertainer .....really revs up the show. Andrew Dean charges forward in high speed until the end, slowing up a bit only to connect with his audience...making a special connection to talk about those things nearest and dearest in his life: God, Country, and Family. Then it's right back to full speed ahead, with throttle WIDE OPEN... and DREAMS that have no end. He cares and it shows, he is real, and he's genuine, that's the mark of a quality entertainer. Many wonder why he would rather talk about his sister Jenny's battle with cancer, than the numerous awards he's won. ...ask him, and he will say those award are reminiscent of new friends met in many cities across the nation. As for Jenny, she lost the battle with breast cancer in 2000, but a signifcant role model for her younger brother, Jenny's influence is always present when talking with Andrew, and he has made Breast Cancer Awareness one of his many adopted charitable organizations. Compliment his Tribute To Veterans songs "In A Mother's Eyes", "Lonely Soldier", or "The Price", and you may be in for a heartfelt discussion on the neccessity to provide our heroes, troops and veterans with quality health care, jobs, and the respect they deserve for standing up to protect our country and freedoms. Go out to dinner... and you may find the Dean's seated around a family sized table, giving thanks to the Lord. Yes, they do pray in public places, as well as at home. God is faithful, always providing what is needed, and Andrew and his family worship openly. Annually they all walk CROP WALK for hunger, giving food and donations to needy children in over 80 countries. You see, when what you see is what you get, you only get the best with Andrew Dean. He is proven, driven, loyal, trustworthy, energetic, with some of the best Country Music to come out of Nashville.
The Kentucky Sisters, Angels With One Wing
"Sibling harmonies to die for..." That's how Jeffrey Lee Puckett, music critic for the Louisville Courier-Journal, described the Kentucky Sisters performance at the Kentucky State Fair as they opened for country legend, George Jones. And ifs true, there is no other harmony to compare with that of family. Ever since they were little girls, the Kentucky Sisters have been pleasing audiences with this perfect sound that is both beautiful and magical. The Sisters began performing professionally in 1994, out their singing together started long before that Even as small children they often gathered around the piano with their parents, and at ages 5, 7, and 9, Brigit, Beth, and Laura began singing praise and worship songs in their local church. Winning a small-town talent contest changed the lives of these three sisters forever. From that day the desire to sing country and gospel music burned in their hearts. They were determined to share their voices and talents, a determination which has taken them to fairs, festivals, churches, and special events all over the United States and beyond. They became world travelers by singing their heartfelt music for military personnel in countries in the Middle East, Asia, Central America, and the Caribbean. The Kentucky Sisters' goal is to positively influence people with their music - they want to make people happy. When they hear their audience sing along or tap their toes to an up-tempo song or give a chuckle at a joke or see a tear wiped away because of the tender interpretation of a favorite song, they know their dreams are coming true. In 1994, they recorded their self-titled, debut album. Michael W. Stout, critic for "Louisville Music /Vews" said, "Each sister possesses a sweet, yet unique voice which, when blended with the other two, creates charming and angelic alto and soprano vocal harmonies to warm the coldest heart" In 2004, the Sisters released their second project, "In & Out of Love" an album reflecting some of their favorite traditional country sounds. In June, 2005, a gospel album, "One Holy Morning" was released. Songs from both albums have been released to radio, both in the United States and internationally through Nite*Sky Records, and are receiving rave reviews. They are honored to be named "Vocal Group of the Year" by the North American Country Music Associations International (NACMAI) for 2003 and 2004 and "Vocal Group of the Year" from the Kentucky Country Music Association for both 2002 and 2003.
