Ava Paige

Ava Paige fell in love with performing during a karaoke duet with pop-star, Kelly Clarkson. With influences like Vince Gill, Chris Stapleton, and Brad Paisley, Ava’s talent has been on display at many legendary Nashville venues such as The Bluebird Cafe, Tootsie’s World Famous Orchid Lounge, and The George Jones. At just 17 years of age, she has collaborated with some of Nashville’s most prominent songwriters and continues to be on the watch list of Nashville’s hottest.


At the prime of her young career, Ava was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Being the optimistic, loving fighter that she is, she continues to write and perform at every opportunity as she recovers. Songwriter friends like Ashley McBryde, Carley Pearce, Michael Ray, and Brandy Clark filled her hospital room with music during recovery.

Even during these turbulent times, Ava gave back by raising money and awareness for The Leukemia Lymphoma Society and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Jamie Floyd

Jamie Floyd is a Nashville based two time Grammy-nominated independent songwriter and recording artist. She has written songs recorded by Kelly Clarkson, Kesha, Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys, Miranda Lambert, Ronnie Dunn, Sturgill Simpson, Ingrid Andress, Brian McKnight, Wrabel, Kalie Shorr, Ty Herndon, Ashley Monroe, Madi Diaz, Jake Hoot, Cassadee Pope, Hayden Panettiere, Kellie Picker, Lucie Silvas and more.

Jamie just released (4/28) her new single "I Never Want To See You Again," a singable/danceable/cryable 'country sad song in disguise!' It was just named one of Billboard's Top 10 Must Hear New Country Americana Songs, alongside new releases by Willie Nelson & Joy Oladokun.


Music Row Magazine also named Jamie their New Discovery Country Artist, raving: This bopping, danceable ditty is ear candy on several levels. The melody is enchanting. The production shines like crystal beads. Her soprano-leaping vocal is a delight. The songwriting is stellar: "I never want to see you again, until I see you again," she warbles as she contemplates an up-and-down relationship while notes sparkle like glitter around her. A lovely record.

Other new releases that Floyd has written include "The Blade," co-written by Jamie and recorded by the legendary Ronnie Dunn for his latest #1 album "100 Proof Neon." Jamie also co-wrote 4 songs that appear on the new Ty Herndon album "JACOB." One of the tunes is a duet Floyd sings with Herndon, and she co-wrote the debut single from the album, "Till You Get There." Other notable credits include having co-written "Anything But Love" with new country star Ingrid Andress, which appears on Ingrid's Grammy nominated album, "Lady Like," and cowriting the last single from Kelly Clarkson & Jake Hoot (Winner of The Voice Season 17), a duet called "I Would've Loved You." The song has amassed more than 15 million views and 7 million streams. She also has songs included on the newest albums by Wrabel (Nettwerk/Big Gay Records), Cassadee Pope, Kalie Shorr (TMWRK) and several songs on the new Madi Diaz album "History Of A Feeling" (ANTI). Recently, Madi has been showcasing several songs she's co-written with Jamie, opening for Hary Styles on several dates for his ongoing "Love on Tour."

Jamie has written extensively for film and television, including writing and performing "Oh Darlin'," the only original song featured in Theresa Rebeck's Glimpse, a new thriller shot entirely on an iPhone. The film features an all-star cast including Michael Emerson, Alysia Reiner, Raul Esparza and Janet McTeer. She also wrote and recorded "Let it Shine," which closes out the final scene of the new movie Dakota. Her other credits include writing the finale for Dolly Parton's A Country Christmas Story and writing and performing the entire 12 song soundtrack for Burt Reynolds' award winning final film The Last Movie Star. Jamie and her co-writer John Martin, took home the Nashville Film Festival's "Best Song in A Feature Film" for "Yet To Come," the closing song of the Burt movie. She also appeared in the critically acclaimed documentary The Last Songwriter alongside Garth Brooks, Emmylou Harris and Jason Isbell.

As a composer & lyricist, Jamie has written all the original music, 20+ songs, for an upcoming new musical in development, "The King's Wife." The musical recently had its first 29 hour reading with the prestigious Playwrights Horizons in NYC. The piece is produced by Emmy and Tony-nominated and Drama Desk winning producer Jennifer Kranz in association with multi-Tony-nominated Rosalind Productions (Broadway's The Prom, Funny Girl, Three Tall Women, King Lear), with book and story by award winning playwright Mêlisa Annis, directed by Tamilla Woodard (Hadestown) and with Music Direction by Ethan Popp ("The Greatest Showman," Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, School of Rock). Jamie was also tapped to write the theme song "Little Christmas Miracles," for Off Broadway Christmas play, of the same name. She penned the song by herself, especially for the show, and made her off Broadway debut as both a songwriter and a performer at The Actors Temple Theater in New York when she closed the show with her performance of the song on opening night. Jamie has most recently been tapped as a composer along with artist Jeremy Ryan, for another new Broadway musical in development titled "That Boy Ain't Right," alongside her longtime collaborator and accomplished playwright, Mêlisa Annis.

As a touring artist, Floyd has toured nationally, including playing Stagecoach and headlining at The Washington State Fair with her band. After the independent release of her EP "New Girl," debuted at #6 on the iTunes Country Album charts, Jamie made her Grand Ole Opry debut, opening for Metallica & Three Days Grace. The show aired in 300 cities/drive-ins across the United States and Canada as part of the Encore Drive In Nights concert series. She was awarded 2021's "Rising Star Award" by the Concert For Love & Acceptance, a televised charitable event organized by Ty Herndon's Foundation for Love & Acceptance and CMT.

She plans to tour extensively and will release new music beginning April of 2023.
