In its 43rd year, the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta has grown from launching 13 balloons in 1972 to over 500 balloons, becoming the largest hot air ballooning event on earth.

The Albuquerque Box, influenced by terrain, is a set of predictable wind patterns that make navigating a balloon fairly simple. The box allows pilots to start and finish at the same spot with southern winds at the lower elevations and northern winds at higher elevations.

County Road 5 was established in the fall of 2003 and has exceeded the expectations of its members and fans alike. The group has endured the rough terrain like many groups do, of finding permanent members, creating a marketable product, and establishing their own identity. Finding time in their busy schedules of 250 performances per year and writing original music, they have released three albums thus far, with two more albums in the works.

Founded in 1981, the Sawyer Brown band has played more than 4,000 shows over the course 30 years, logging mileage well into the seven figures. And as the band clearly shows in its new CD, the wheels are still turning and an ever-open road stretches out ahead.

Turner released his fifth studio album, Punching Bag on June 12, 2012 which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart. The debut single, “Time is Love” was #1 on the Best of 2012 Billboard Country Chart. The Associated Press says, “With Punching Bag, Turner once again proves he ranks among the most effective -- and most hard-core country -- performers of his generation.”

Since his debut in 2009, David Nail has made a career of singing songs that few artists dare touch in contemporary country music: sad songs. He has had hits with singles about cheating (“Let It Rain”), breakups (“Red Light”) and failed dreams (“Turning Home”) and he has owned every one, singing as if from personal experience.
