Country duo, Indigo Summer is taking country fans by storm with their self-titled debut release. Featuring all original songs co-written by the duo, Bryan Edwards and Hope Nix, the full-length album is sure to add a fresh and exciting sound to country music. Meeting at a songwriter’s night at Nashville’s famed Hotel Indigo in December of 2010 (hence part of the duo’s name), Hope and Bryan quickly hit it off with their musical similarities. The two began writing together and from those sessions, their partnership grew to include performing and producing together.
Indigo Summer, released the music video for their second single, “Wants What It Wants,” off their self-titled debut album. The duo, comprised of Bryan Edwards and Hope Nix, think of this single as their signature song.
“When Hope and I wrote this song, it was when we first started out as a duo, I don’t think we even had a name yet. “Wants What It Wants” has little bit of everything that Indigo Summer represents. I think it’s one of the most emotional songs that we have, I feel it every time we sing it, and it’s been a fan favorite ever since we added it to our set.” Says Edwards.
With the release of the new single, Indigo Summer followed up with the release of their music video for “Wants What It Wants.”
“Filming this video was an intense experience. Since the song is dark and moody, Bryan and I wanted to emulate those emotions in our performance, putting our acting skills to the test. It was a long and tiring night of filming, but I think Stephen Byrum, our videographer, captured everything we wanted and I’m proud of how it turned out.” Says Nix.
The duo is excited about the release of the new single and the music video and they are continuing to build the buzz surrounding their album release. The members of Indigo Summer are proud to have co-written all twelve songs on their debut album, produced by Indigo Summer’s own Bryan Edwards and David Dorn.
As solo artists, they have performed across the country and opened for some of the biggest names in the industry, including Keith Urban, Jason Aldean, and Charlie Daniels. As songwriters, they have had numerous cuts and TV placements, including songs recorded by Jason Aldean and featured on the Discovery Channel.

What The CMA Awards Got Wrong
Without a doubt the CMA Awards continue to prove that they can put on an event worth being called the biggest night in country music. With endless performances and unforgettable collaborations, no country music fan will ever turn down the chance to attend the CMA Awards.
Yet despite your hosts Carrie Underwood & Brad Paisley and the breathing tributes to those who've fallen each year, the awards themselves haven't changed in years. In fact Little Big Town has won Vocal Group of the Year for 6 consecutive years, a well deserving award... the first time. Plus Garth Brooks, a country music legend by all means, received his sixth Entertainer of the Year award. In fact Entertainer of the Year hasn't been awarded to a female artist since 2011 when Taylor Swift received the honor. And Miranda Lambert, the only female award winner last night, took home her 7th Female Vocalist of the Year award.
Watching the CMA Awards one could assume that only ten artists make up the entire genre, while radio stations such as Sirius XM The Highway and the Bobby Bones Show have proven otherwise.

NASHVILLE, Tenn.

Nashville Mayor Megan Barry was on-hand to announce CMT’s Next Women Class of 2018.
“The team at CMT has been a constant support and safe place for me since I first moved to Nashville four years ago. This was the fourth CMT’s Next Women of Country event I’ve attended, so getting to be in the Class of 2018 was such an honor and a cool perspective moment for me,” said Kalie Shorr. “I am surrounded by many talented women who I’ve admired and looked up to for a long time. I am very thankful for the people of Nashville who champion women relentlessly, and CMT is at the forefront of that.”
