KAYLA ADAMS Hosts Country Fix


Newcomer KAYLA ADAMS Hosts Country Fix Feature Episodes Beginning Tonight

 

Debut Single Rises To #20 On
MusicRow Chart


Nashville, TN (November 24, 2014) - As her debut single "Sober & Sorry" breaks into the Top 20 on the MusicRow chart, newcomer KAYLA ADAMS' Country Fix feature episodes begin airing tonight on the Heartland, Angel Two and AMG networks.  The program will continue to broadcast, as indicated below, through Sunday, December 14. 

Mondays - Heartland 8 p.m. ET (Nashville/Paducah markets  6 p.m. CT)
Tuesdays - Angel Two 3 a.m. ET
Sundays - Angel Two 5:30 p.m. ET and AMG 5 p.m. ET

The new 30-minute program, shot and edited in HD, premiered in August on New Zealand's Country TV network and Kayla's episodes ran there last month.  In total, the combined foreign and U.S. broadcast reach is over 60 million households.  Country Fix features music videos, "behind the scenes" footage and/or interviews with entertainers ranging from the up-and-coming to the legendary.  In each case, the shows are taped at various recording studios and hosted by the artists themselves.  Kayla was interviewed at SMS Recording Studios in Hendersonville, TN; "in the can" episodes feature the music of Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, The Band Perry, Jason Aldean, Willie Nelson, George Strait and others.  Plans are for an initial 52 episodes.

For Adams, the opportunity to showcase her debut music video, "Sober & Sorry," to the show's vast audience was "astounding."  The clip premiered globally on The Boot in September and generated enormous interest in the young star.  During the month of October, Virgin Airlines featured her "Sober & Sorry" video on flights to and from Australia, and on all domestic runs in the U.S.  The video remains in rotation on MTV.com, VH1.com, ZUUS Country, Yallwire and CMT.com. 

The Country rocker has just wrapped a five-month long radio promotion tour that will resume in 2015.  Kayla is currently writing songs with Nashville's top tunesmiths for her debut CD on SSM Entertainment. 

JESPER MUNK mit neuem Programm im April 2015 auf Tournee

JESPER MUNK
JESPER MUNK mit neuem Programm im April 2015 auf Tournee

Die Zeit vergeht wie im Flug mit JESPER MUNK! Hinter ihm liegen zwei erfolgreiche Headliner-Tourneen und Festivalsaisons. Mit unter anderem fünf Gigs beim diesjährigen Reeperbahn Festival, gilt der Songschreiber und Gitarrist als neuer Rekordhalter. „Einfach nur geil“ schreibt die Augsburger Allgemeine über sein jüngstes Konzert im Rahmen der November Tournee und die Musikwoche ist überzeigt, JESPER MUNK ist „Neuer Hoffnungsträger in Sachen Blues“. Einst als Wunderknabe gefeiert, legte der heute 22-jährige Deutsch-Däne eine überraschende Blitzkarriere hin und trat neben seinen eigenen Konzerten mit Legenden wie u.a. Michael Hurley, Willard Grant Conspiracy, Eric Burdon & The Animals sowie deutschen Top-Acts von Bosse bis Sportfreunde Stiller auf.

Sein Debüt „For In My Way It Lies“ (Redwinetunes/ Rough Trade) brachte ihm bereits Lob und Aufmerksamkeit der Medien und viel Gehör bei den Fans ein. Mit seinem archaischen Blues im Stil der 1930er und 1940er Jahre, wandelt JESPER MUNK auf den Pfaden von Jack White, Gary Clark Jr. und The Black Keys und zieht das Publikum reihenweise in seinen Bann.

Im April 2015 präsentiert JESPER MUNK bei 14 Terminen, in Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz, sein neues Programm live. Neben echten Bluesrock-Krachern, schlägt der Münchner auch ernstere Töne an, die einen Einblick in Seelenleben und Gefühlswelten geben und wiederrum von wilden Post-Punk Klängen der Achtziger Jahre abgelöst werden. Zusammengehalten wird das alles durch Jespers außergewöhnliche Stimme. Das Publikum darf gespannt sein.

Tickets sind ab 26.11. unter www.eventim.de sowie an allen bekannten VVK-Stellen erhältlich.

CD: JEREMIE RAY FAGA - Where Eagles Fly

JEREMIE RAY FAGA
Where Eagles Fly
You're Spending Too Much Time On My Mind - Broken - Drugged On Jesus - Your Lips Won't Be Lonely Long - Spread Your Wings And Fly - Iowa Storm - Bottle Of Wine - Long Road In Life - You're Never Too Far Gone - I Need You As A Friend Most Of All - Hope For Today - Fly Where The Eagles Fly
 
 I was very surprised to hear this album by Jeremie.  It's all his own originals, and that is very impressive.  We've been watching him develop over the past few years here in Iowa, and it's a real pleasure to see him step out on his own, just him and his guitar doing a very nice session at Dry Creek Studio in Omaha.  He was well liked at the LeMars Festival in 2014, and we expect him back, not only there, but at the Oak Tree Opry in Anita, which recently received a really nice story in the Iowa History Journal.  My favorite song on this project is "Iowa Storm," Jeremie seems to know what he's talking about, and a little bit of sound effect makes it interesting.  I like the sound of his guitar, and he plays it well.  Most of his songs are songs of hope, songs of love, songs of friendship.  That's all pretty positive stuff, so unlike modern composers who are lost in a sea of negativity.  He's kind of acoustic country, and needs no outrageous 'noise' to hide his voice.  I'd say he leans a little toward folk music, but not quite, and he definitely is not what I would label modern country.  Another of my favorite's on this nice work is "Hope For Today."  Jeremie knows the world seems insane at times, and "Hope For Today" does take some of the pain away.  Jeremie says  "That growing up on a farm in Iowa he learned the importance of faith.  We all struggle through life in various ways, some more than others.  Having gone through several valleys in my life, I know there's light at the end of the tunnel."  And, his closing song "Fly Where The Eagles Fly" gives certitude to this recorded effort, it brings the 'creative process' to it's rightful place.  Good going Jeremie, this one goes to the Rural Roots Music Commission.

CD: MATHEW JOHNSON - Carving Out A Tune

MATHEW JOHNSON
Carving Out A Tune
Down Yonder - Donegal Clog - Billy The Barber Shaved His Father - Reel de L'Aveugle - Concert Reel - Blindman's Reel - Jolly Fiddler's 2-Step - Olympic 2-Step - Walking up Town - Contessa Waltz - Frank Ryan's Hornpipe - Carelton County Hornpipe - Lightning Hornpipe - Listen To The Mockingbird - Screwdriver Rag - Mary Get Your Shoes - Frenchie's Reel - Golden Eagle Hornpipe - Dill Pickle Rag - Festival Waltz - Shingle The Roof - Back Up & Push - Rochester Schottische - Go To The Devil & Shake Yourself - East Tennessee Blues - Reel du Fogeron - Salute To Columbia - Yellow Rose Waltz - Allen's Reel - Don Messer's Breakdown - Ida Red - Robbie Dagenais Reel - Jim's Heartwarming Waltz - Four String Polka - Fiddle Strings - Four Mile Run - Spanish Two-Step - Territorial Days Reel - Gfatineau Reel - Lou Sullivan - Mansion Over The Hilltop
 
Wow, with the number of tunes on this album, you have to realize it took awhile to listen to it.  I'm not exactly sure how I came to receive this incredibly well recorded fiddler, but I'm glad I have the privilege of listening to this young man play his instrument so well.  He reminds me so very much of a young Mark O'Connor when Mark came to Omaha to participate in a fiddle contest with a $10,000 first prize paid for by the Brandeis Store when Laurier Birginal was still around and still promoting old-time fiddle.  What an amazing situation that was, and I have to say what an amazing gathering of incredibly good old-time fiddle tunes on this one album by Mathew Johnson.  I like Mathew's own composition "Screwdriver Rag" but I'm also a Kenny Baker fan, and Kenny's "Festival Waltz" is well represented on this gathering.  Some of the best backing musicians I have ever heard behind a good fiddler is on this project, and Mathew has 'combined' some of his songs into one compilation, meaning he modulates up and down the scale, seemingly effortlessly and without warning.  So, these musicians have to be really good, have as good an ear as Mathew has, and pay very close attention to what he is doing on the fiddle.  This particular CD is already pretty old, so I'm not sure what the status is with Mathew Johnson, but I do know there will be a nomination for induction of him into America's Old Time Fiddler's Hall of Fame.  I will send this particular CD along to the Rural Roots Music Commission to see their reaction to this piece of work.  I believe Mathew has a great love for hornpipes, these sound exceptionally well as he delves into the inner make-up of these kind of tunes.  There's a kind of gourd-tapper horse-clop sounding instrument that joins well  into some rags like "Dill Pickle," and enhances the old-time flavor of the songs, making them sound even vaudevillian.  With the fiddle forsaken in today's country music scene, it's such a pity they have sacrificed this most magnificent instrument that made country music such a very likable musical genre, its absence making it such an unlikable one today.  If you like fiddle music, played well, as much as I do, you need to find this CD.  It's out there somewhere, I have it, so it has to be.  "Back Up And Push" really has that Mark O'Connor touch and brings a million fond memories back to me of how tremendously great this kind of music is.  Five stars for this one.

TY HERNDON, ANDY GRIGGS & JAMIE O'NEAL SET TO TOUR TOGETHER IN 2015

TY HERNDON, ANDY GRIGGS & JAMIE O'NEAL SET TO TOUR TOGETHER IN 2015

Trio Set to Perform at Charlie Daniels & Friends Christmas for Kids Concert this Monday at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville
  NASHVILLE, Tenn. (November 22, 2014) There’s an old saying about there being strength in numbers. Country Music fans will no doubt find that out with the upcoming tour that teams up three of Country Music’s most distinctive stylists of the past two decades – Ty Herndon, Andy Griggs, and Jamie O’Neal. Separately, the numbers don’t lie – and together, they are staggering – over 40 chart singles on the Billboard Country Singles chart and millions of records sold. Each artist has their own success story to tell, but when they are on stage, it’s truly a magical combination – one that will stay in the minds of fans well after the last bow.

Talk to either Ty, Andy or Jamie, and you will find nothing but respect for the other two artists. Andy said that he’s excited to be teaming up with a pair of artists that are among his favorites, though he does admit that opposites do attract. “We all blend together about like Tupac, Bill Monroe and Joan Rivers but somehow it works on stage! Go figure! But when we’re not singing our hearts out together it's the most awkward, misplaced, dysfunctional, hilarious carnival that has ever been displayed!” Andy expects being on the road with Ty and Jamie to be nothing short of...entertaining.

When discussing Jamie, Andy says “Take a phenomenal female vocalist. Now add a husband to go with that that has to carry her 10 piece luggage all over God's creation. Then, mix it with her having to put up with 2 guys that are more different than night and day and can't even agree on having a vocal rehearsal which in return drives her so far up the wall that she's on verge of quitting the whole tour at any given moment of any given day and that's Jamie,” he says, adding that Ty is also an interesting character, as well.

“God certainly displays his amazing sense of humor each time he places me and Ty on tour together! I've never known a guy that I had half of the things in life in common with (born in the Spirit filled Bible Belt, completely southern, in love with the same kind of music...etc..) but then again can't be any more different than John Wayne and Prince! There's no way for us to completely understand each other's taste buds of life and we don't even pretend to try. That would be a total waste of each other's time. It's the strange ironies and upside down compasses in life though that makes us all rich. With Ty and myself, we share 2 of the rarest things in common. I suppose they out trump the mountains of shortcomings and differences that lay between us. Those two qualities we share are: being real and true to our natures, and being friends.”

Jamie feels that the new partnership will definitely be entertaining – on stage and off. “I'm so excited to be a part of this. Ty and Andy are two of the best male vocalists from any genre. They're so funny, good looking, and just a couple of goofy smart asses! I just couldn't resist. Ty is the most well put together, smoothest control freak I've ever met. Andy is a cute, lovable redneck with the softest heart. I only know when we sang together for the first time something very special happened and here we are, taking the next obvious step.”

Ty believes that the fans are going to get their monies worth when seeing their show live. He knows he’s been entertained from the stage. “The first time the three of us did a show together I wondered how in the world this would ever work. At first we did separate shows, but as time went on we started doing our shows together. The crowd seemed to love the fact that they got all these hits in one 2 hour show. Then we started singing harmonies with each other. I noticed pretty quickly that we had something special. Three powerhouse vocalists coming together and taking things to a new level. I first noticed it when something went wrong on stage and we had to save our asses by singing something acapella. ‘Amazing Grace’ never sounded so good. It was magic!”

About Ty Herndon:
Ty Herndon was born in the heart of Mississippi, and was raised in Alabama. He grew up enamored with much of the Gospel music that was around the south, performing around home as a teenager. After high school, he moved to the Lone Star State, where he developed his craft so well he was named as Texas Entertainer of the Year in 1993. Not too long after that, Ty found himself on the roster of Epic Records. His first single, “What Mattered Most,” topped the charts in the summer of 1999, and led to other number ones as “Living In A Moment” and “It Must Be Love.” He notched a pair of Gold albums for his first two releases – What Mattered Most and Living In A Moment. The past few years have seen no end to Ty’s artistry – as he earned a Dove Award and also a Grammy nomination for his 2010 release “Journey On,” and received some of the most sterling reviews of his career for his thought-provoking “Lies I Told Myself,” from his album of the same name.

About Andy Griggs:
Louisiana native Andy Griggs was a one-time minister in his home state before being signed to RCA Records in the late 1990s. His 1999 debut, “You Won’t Ever Be Lonely” (from his Gold-selling album of the same title) was one of the most played hits of the year, paving the way for such future hits as “She’s More,” “I’ll Go Crazy,” and the powerful “If Heaven.” Andy has collaborated with some equally talented artists in the past – such as Martina McBride, Blake Shelton, and one of his heroes, Waylon Jennings – with whom he teamed up on his debut album for “Shine On Me.” Andy’s soulful delivery can ooze romance or bring people to tears – especially on ballads such as 2013’s “20 Little Angels,” a song after the tragic events of Sandy Hook, CT. The singer also earned quite a bit of attention for his all-acoustic album Naked, which was also released in 2013, and for this year’s Triple Play EP, which was released on iTunes.

About Jamie O’Neal:
Performing comes very naturally to Jamie O’Neal. She started performing in a band with her family in Australia.  Jamie signed with Mercury Records in 2000. Right off the bat, she scored with not just a “Hit” record, but an instant classic with the haunting “There Is No Arizona.” Her follow-up, “When I Think About Angels,” also hit the top of the charts, helping to propel her debut disc, Shiver, to Gold status. She hit pay dirt time and again with other records like “Tryin’ To Find Atlantis” and “Somebody’s Hero.” Her 2002 collaboration with Mark Wills, “I’m Not Gonna Do Anything Without You,” remains a fan favorite to this day, and she was featured on the soundtrack of the box office hit Bridget Jones’ Diary. Eternal, her most recent album, contains her take on many classic songs by some of her favorite artists – including a smoldering take on Larry Gatlin’s “I’ve Done Enough Dyin’ Today,” as well as a take on the George Jones and Tammy Wynette classic “Golden Ring,” with Andy.

Oak Ridge Boys Celebrating 25th Year Holiday Tradition


Oak Ridge Boys Celebrating 25th Year Holiday Tradition
with Christmas Night Out Tour


Legendary Group Launching Concert Series
Wrapped with True Meaning of Christmas

  NASHVILLE, Tenn. (November 20, 2014) The legendary Oak Ridge Boys are kicking off the holiday season with the Christmas Night Out Tour, and marking 25 years of one of the longest running Christmas tours in the music industry.  This year’s series of concerts will journey across the U.S. with an unforgettable show featuring yuletide classics blended with some of the group’s greatest hits.  The creative force and signature sound of the Oaks have become synonymous with Christmas music as the country legends continue to captivate multi-generational audiences around the globe.

Lead singer Duane Allen describes it as tradition that offers something for everyone, “It’s that time of year again…time for the jingle bells to be ringing around the world, and on the stage of The Oak Ridge Boys’ Christmas show.  There’ll be songs you already know, the traditional songs, Oak Ridge Boys’ Christmas hits, and some new songs.  And I’ve heard that Santa Claus may be arriving on a Peterbilt Sleigh.  We begin our show with some major Oak Ridge Boys hits, then we take a break and when the snow starts falling, it’s a full-blown Christmas show….fireplace, rocking chairs (thank you, Cracker Barrel) and all of the exciting, fun, and spiritual songs that reflect the true meaning of Christmas.”

Tenor Joe Bonsall adds, “The Oak Ridge Boys’ Christmas tour has become a solid tradition all across America. This year’s tour will play 28 shows in 23 cities across 11 states.  It features 40 minutes of hits followed by a full production, 75 minute Christmas show that covers every aspect of this annual celebration from romance to presents, cookies and trees to Santa Claus, and the rocking chair conversations that are loved by all. We proudly end our show with 5 songs that reflect the true meaning of Christmas as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

The Oak Ridge Boys are also currently working on a new album that’s expected to be released in 2015.  For the latest updates, including information on a concert near you, visit: oakridgeboys.com.

BILLY DAWSON CONTINUES MOMENTUM

BILLY DAWSON CONTINUES MOMENTUM
WITH PERFORMANCE AT DALLAS COWBOY STADIUM 
DAWSON LAUNCHES SALVATION ARMY PRE-GAME SHOW FOR COWBOYS VERSUS EAGLES
WITH 45 MINUTE FULL BAND CONCERT ON THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 27 

Nashville, TN (November 20, 2014) -  Rising country star Billy Dawson always dreamed of playing the Dallas Cowboy stadium as a football player but little did he know after 25 years he would be playing the stadium as a musical artist.  His childhood dream will come true when he plays a 45 minute set in West Plaza’s Miller Lite Stage at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium on November 27th.  The full band performance will kick off Salvation Army’s pre-game show for the Thanksgiving day battled between the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles.  Other entertainment at the game includes LeeAnn Womack performing the national anthem and Pitbull entertaining during half-time. 
“My mom was praying the other day and the Lord reminded her of my desire to play for the Dallas Cowboys when I was a child.  She told me the story and it brought back memories of the time we went to a Cowboys game and I was able to play on the field.  It was so exhilarating running down the field and making a touchdown,” says Dawson.  “I am pumped and overwhelmed to be performing a concert at one of my favorite places. I’m so thankful and blessed for this incredible opportunity God has given me.” 
 Dallas Cowboys fans may be familiar with Dawson’s music as two of his songs have been blasted over the loud speakers at games this season.  “Go To Guy,” written by Amy Jack, Eddie Galan, Diana Williamson and Dawson and “Born To Lead,” the official theme song of the 2013 Lombardi awards, written by Amy Jack, Gannon Adams and Dawson, have became fan favorites at stadiums across the country including the world famous Cowboys Stadium, "Born To Lead" is availble now on iTunes. Thousands of  people are expected to be in attendance. Mega group Rascal Flatts recently graced the same stage for a concert. 
Lacy Leigh Photography and Saylor Productions will be onsite to document the concert.
