Gilbert, a two-time platinum album selling artist (Halfway To Heaven, Just As I Am), released his latest single 'Rolex on a Redneck' with multi-platinum and Grammy nominated artist Jason Aldean on March 25.

Now signed to Warner Music Nashville and with more than 150 million streams under her belt, Decker has begun a new musical chapter of growth and empowerment with her latest project The Woman I’ve Become EP.

It's also been announced that DJ Valentino Khan will "welcome fans with the hottest hits in music" as they arrive at WrestleMania 38. Both nights of the event are being held at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
