Texas Hill is the new vocal trio of Craig Wayne Boyd, Adam Wakefield and Casey James.  Texas Hill is instantly identifiable, thanks to its well-developed signature sound – an in-your-face harmonic wall. Each individual Texas Hill member earned a national presence as contestants on TV music competitions – Craig and Adam were both members of Blake Shelton’s team during different seasons of NBC’s The Voice, and Casey developed a following during the Simon Cowell era of FOX’s American Idol.

Nicholas has been a mainstay of country music for two decades, bridging the gap between the genre’s old-school roots and contemporary eras. From his first radio smash, 2002’s “The Impossible,” to 2021’s Home Run,” Nichols has blurred the boundaries between country music’s past and present along the way. It’s an approach that has earned Nichols multi-platinum success, three Grammy nominations, a CMA award, and an ACM trophy.
