Nickelback’s 10th album and first in five years, “Get Rollin’,” was released on Nov. 18, 2022 via BMG and debuted at No. 2 across the Current Rock, Alternative, Hard Music, and Digital Album charts. The record also landed on the ARIA Album chart at No. 3 and in the Top 10 in the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, Australia, and Austria. Additionally, “Get Rollin'” debuted at No. 1 in Switzerland, a career first for the band.
The acclaimed new album is a thrilling soundscape of adventure, nostalgia, and emotional exploration. With the new record, Nickelback continues their incomparable legacy as “one of rock’s biggest-ever bands,” as noted by Kerrang, and they will be furthering their legacy as they are inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame at the Juno Awards on March 13.
Named the “most successful rock band of the decade” by Billboard in 2009, Nickelback is one of the most commercially viable and important acts of the past two decades. The four-piece – comprised of Chad Kroeger (vocals, guitar), Mike Kroeger (bass), Ryan Peake (guitar, keyboards), and Daniel Adair (drums) – is globally celebrated for their career-defining and award-winning hits, including “How You Remind Me,” “Photograph,” “Far Away” and “Rockstar,” which all held top spots on the Billboard 100. Their success includes worldwide sales of more than 50 million units, solidifying their status as one of the top-selling acts of all time and the second best-selling foreign act in the United States in the 2000s decade, behind only The Beatles. Their inescapable and irresistible smash “How You Remind Me” was named Billboard’s “Top Rock Song of the Decade.” It was the No. 1 most-played song on U.S. radio (any format) in the 2000s with over 1.2 million spins, according to Nielsen Soundscan.
Among all of these accolades, they’ve also been named Billboard’s “Top Rock Group of the Decade” and received nine Grammy Award nominations, three American Music Awards, a World Music Award, a People’s Choice Award, 12 Juno Awards, seven MuchMusic Video Awards, and they were inducted into Canada’s Walk of Fame in 2007. With more than 23 chart-topping singles and fans spanning the globe, Nickelback boasts 12 consecutive sold-out world tours, playing to well over 10 million diehard and adoring fans.
With back-to-back platinum albums and a grassroots following that is millions strong, Brantley Gilbert’s music has been shared, covered, and adopted as the soundtrack to Saturday night and Sunday morning by audiences around the world. The Georgia native who started as the defiant life-of-the-party can still go ’til sunrise, but he’s also emerged as something far greater – the leader of a massive tribe of hard-working, fun-loving believers for whom electric guitar-shredding, rapping, and twang can go hand-in-hand-in-hand. They call themselves the BG Nation, and when the BG Nation watches Gilbert on a stage, they don’t just see a star – they see themselves.
Seven No. 1 hits punctuate his career: “Country Must be Country Wide,” “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do,” CMA Awards Song of the Year nominee “Dirt Road Anthem,” “My Kinda Party,” RIAA five-times platinum-certified “Bottoms Up,” “One Hell of an Amen,” and the collaboration with Lindsay Ell “What Happens in a Small Town.” Gilbert’s landmark record “Just as I Am” clinched the 2014 American Music Award for Favorite Country Album.
Earning praise from the New York Times, NPR, American Songwriter, and more, he has mined a rich vein of conflict between the party and the pew on all of his albums. Instead of toiling in limbo, unable to enjoy good times for fear of Judgment Day, Gilbert fully lives – rowdy friend, man of faith, devoted husband, smitten father – just as he is. His new album, “So Help Me God,” includes his latest single, “Heaven by Then” with Blake Shelton and Vince Gill, and is available now.
In 2022, Canadian Josh Ross debuted with his independently released chart-topping Top 5 cathartic ballad on romantic losses, “First Taste of Gone.” He celebrated with his major-label signing to Universal Music Canada, along with his management team signing to The Core Entertainment.
Often writing from personal experience, Ross has delivered versatile lyrics throughout his collection of songs. Recently, he shared his live sessions of “First Taste of Gone,” “On a Different Night,” and his TikTok fan favorite cover of the Goo Goo Dolls’ “Iris,” garnering over 32.1 million global streams. The CCMA Rising Star nominated singer/songwriter continues to impact an international music stage. Last November, he joined Jordan Davis and Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line for a one-time-only performance at the 109th Grey Cup in Canada. In January, he joined Bailey Zimmerman in Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina for three sold-out shows.
Ross continues to carve out his place in country music across the nation with chart-topping music releases and performances on both sides of the border.
