Current Single: 'I Love This Song'

Why We Dig Him: Marcel was a professional hockey player before setting his sights on Nashville. He found success as a songwriter, penning songs for Rascal Flatts, LeAnn Rimes, Big & Rich and Josh Gracin. But we're glad he's keeping his songs to himself now, as he proves to be a talented singer with a fresh, country-rock edge.
