Gavin DeGraw will be performing new material off his highly anticipated fourth album “Sweeter” that was released in September on RCA Records. “Entertainment Weekly” describes the first single “Not Over You” as a soulful majestic ballad and “People Magazine” declares the hot single as his welcome return to the airwaves. DeGraw first broke through with the 2003 release of his debut album, “Chariot,” which sold more than 1 million copies, earned platinum certification and yielded three hit singles: “I Don’t Want To Be,” “Follow Through,” and the title-track, “Chariot.”

DeGraw’s self-titled second album debuted at No. 1 on the digital sales chart and at No. 7 on “Billboard’s” Top 200 album chart in 2008, earning DeGraw his first Top 10 album. It spawned the hit singles “In Love with a Girl,” and the gold-certified “We Belong Together.” In 2009, DeGraw released "Free" as a gift to his die-hard fans clamoring for recorded versions of his live favorites. DeGraw recently toured with Maroon 5 and TRAIN which finished in August. He has performed and is scheduled to perform on numerous TV shows in support of his new album including “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, ”Live with Regis and Kelly,” “The Today Show,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and more.

David Cook is touring in support of his most recent release “This Loud Morning” (19 Recordings / RCA Records), which was released on June 28. The first single “The Last Goodbye” was met by rave reviews and Cook’s second single “Fade Into Me” is being released to coincide with the tour. After winning the “American Idol” crown in season 7 of the show, Cook went on to sell over 1 million copies of his self-titled debut album and set out on a yearlong nationwide tour in support of his multiple hit singles. Released on Nov. 18, 2008, “David Cook” (19 Recordings / RCA Records) entered the Billboard charts at No. 3 and the digital album charts at No. 1, marking the best debut from an American Idol winner since 2006. Collectively the songs from “David Cook” have sold over 2 million tracks and ringtones combined. Cook’s coronation single, “The Time of My Life,” was certified platinum and is not only the biggest single debut but the highest selling coronation single in the show’s history.
