About the Artists

Lee Brice

One of the most-played country artists of all time on Pandora, Lee Brice was the second country artist behind Keith Urban to receive the Pandora Billionaire plaque. Brice is also a Grammy nominee, a CMA and ACM award winner, and he's taken nine radio singles to No.1: “A Woman Like You,” “Hard to Love,” “I Drive Your Truck,” “I Don’t Dance,” “Drinking Class,” “Rumor,” “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” “One of Them Girls” and “Memory I Don’t Mess With.”

Vanilla Ice

The iconic Robert Van Winkle, aka “Vanilla Ice,” exploded on the Rap/Pop music scene in 1990/91, selling 10 million albums in four months and hitting No.1 on the Billboard charts with the chart-topping single “Ice Ice Baby.”

Rob Base

In 1988, Profile Records released Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock’s debut album “It Takes Two.” The title track became a massive single. The single and the album were certified platinum by the RIAA on June 12, 1989 and December 28, 1989, respectively, and produced three top-10 hits.

Montell Jordan

The Billboard Top 10 Songs chart for 1995 contains the following names: Coolio, TLC, Seal, Boyz II Men, Mariah Carey, Madonna and Montell Jordan. “This Is How We Do It” was a breakout new jack swing song that topped the Billboard Hot 100 for seven weeks and R&B charts for eight.

Tone Loc

Tone Loc soared from obscurity into pop stardom in 1989 when his hoarse voice and unmistakable delivery made the song “Wild Thing” (using a sample from Van Halen's “Jamie's Cryin”) a massive hit, winning Grammys and countless other awards.

The postgame concert will be produced by Ballpark Music.
