CD: MARY CHANNER PAUL - He Touched Me

MARY CHANNER PAUL
He Touched Me
I'm Using My Bible For A Road Map - He Touched Me - The Old Rugged Cross - I'd Rather Have God - Don't Let Me Walk Too Far From Calvary - Livin' in The Name of Love - In The Garden - How Great Thou Art - There Is Power In The Blood - Bring All Your Needs To The Altar
 
Mary Paul is one of our longer standing professional performers and recording artists who makes her home in Nebraska.  She just moved from the small rural town of Belgrade to another small rural town, Fullerton.  Out on the prairies, music can be very important to one's life style.  This is so with this marvelous vocalist and entertainer.  Don't have any information on who the players are that are backing Mary in this most excellent old-time gospel CD.  Opening song has a great banjo on it, which takes the listener immediately to the heart of this particular song, "I'm Using The Bible For A Road Map"  which is originally from the Appalachian region, and the addition of a mandolin to this mix is also very gratifying.  It all changes on the second song where the slower song brings us some very well played softer instruments, including an old piano, and a super good sounding steel.  Wish I knew who these great players are, I would share that with you, but it's Mary's voice that stands out so very well.  There is a harmony singer on "He Touched Me" which I am going to assume is daughter Molly.  What a very pleasant and pleasing sound this is, the old style done so well, the voice so sure and so sensitive.  That's what makes a true artist, and that is exactly what Mary Channer Paul is, a true artist. It amazes me how Mary moves so eloquently from a bluegrass sound to an old-time country sound to a classic country sound, and make it all 'fit' beautifully.  It's sort of my own philosophy of 'mixing' bluegrass and old time traditional country to bring together the original sound of what country music was all about in its early days.  This CD should do well wherever it can get airplay, and I would certainly recommend Europe, which has a penchant for this older style done beautifully.  Brings a kind of 'O Brother Where Art Thou' basic sound to all the songs, which were very well picked for this session.  Off to the Rural Roots Music Commission this one goes, and I do expect a very nice reaction from them.

CD: HOWARD VOKES, JR. - The Gospel Side

HOWARD VOKES, JR.
The Gospel Side
Beautiful Shores of Heaven - Wait For The Light To Shine -If Jesus Comes Tomorrow - Precious Lord - Amazing Grace - I'll Fly Away - What A Friend We Have In Jesus - My Loyal Friend Is Jesus Christ - Where He Leads Me - House Of Gold - Gods Gonna Get You For That - If I Could Hear My Mother Pray Again - I Saw The Light - This Train - Old Rugged Cross - Were You There When They Crucified My Lord - Great Speckled Bird - All I Want For Christmas is Jesus
 
I've been a fan of Howard Vokes and his Grand Ole Opry catastrophe songs.  He has had a ton of them, and they are all terrific 'story' songs, written in the old way of country music.  That's not the case anymore, country music has changed so drastically, you are highly unlikely to hear a 'story' song these days.  This particular CD by Howard's son, Howard, Junior, is a very nice old-time gospel tribute to Jesus Christ.  It's too bad some of the so-called country music stars of today can't do this as well as Howard Junior does it.  It's all a heart-filled and heart-produced CD.  Probably not one that will get a lot of air play, but certainly one that will get a lot of record player play, simply because it is a very nice tribute to the music Howard Junior loves, and a very nice tribute to his Savior, Jesus Christ.  Howard plays the rhythm guitar and bass, and also does all the vocals.  Skeets Martin is on lead guitar (very nicely done), and Chet Houge is on the Dobro (also very nicely done).  I would suspect that 'dad' Howard Vokes Sr., is lurking in the studio keeping the session going on it's obvious course of producing some really good old-timey gospel music.  The entire project is very heart warming, not pushed, not hurried, not aspriring for perfection, and to me that is absolutely what original traditional and classic country music was all about.  Nice job, well done, Howard Junior.  Tell your dad you did good.  Howard Junior dedicated this very nice effort to his mother.

CD: EMMA LIN HEYEN - Proud To Be A Cowgirl


 
EMMA LIN HEYEN
Proud To Be A Cowgirl
 
Blue - Oh Shenandoah - Crazy - Cry Me A River - I Fall To Pieces - Josephine - Cupid's Got A Shotgun - Walkin' After  Midnight - Daddy Was A Yodeling Cowboy - Cowboy Sweetheart - American Tears - On My Own - Memory - How Great Thou Art
 
Emma Heyen is without a doubt one of the very best country vocalists we have in Iowa right now.  Her voice is astonishingly refreshing and incredibly right on the button.  Her control of her vibrato makes her one of the most beautiful young singers we could possibly have, doing the songs that appear on this CD.  Rick Andersen is the engineer putting Emma through the hoops with sound tracks, but it's a delightful experience and Emma's voice fits very nicely.  Her selection of material are songs that she does 'live' with Rick & Harriette Andersen, and it's always a pleasure to hear her sing.  Rick & Harriette begin to add some backing when she begins "Crazy" and it sounds just right.  It's a simplified backing, but for me simplicity is the epitome of sophistication.  What it does, it magnifies Emma's voice to it's maximum.  I also noticed the 'tracks' are not over done either, a very nice selection for backing.  Emma is also a very avid 'cow-girl' has her own horse, and the front and back cover of this brand new CD shows her in all her 'cow-girl' regalia, so it's no wonder she called the CD "Proud To Be A Cowgirl."  I wasn't going to review this particular CD until we got to California for the winter, but I couldn't hold off any longer, I was very anxious to hear this new project of Emma.  I wish I could pick one or two songs out that I find 'best' but I can't do it, all of the songs are incredibly well done.  Listening to this young woman sing some exemplary old-time country, and then go into "Cry Me a River" where her 'jazz' qualities lead the listener directly to where she is going with her voice.  What a very lovely listening experience.  I also like Emma's good sense in closing her brand new CD with a gospel song.  "How Great Thou Art" is a wonderful way to end an already exuberant music listening experience. This CD is definitely going to the Rural Roots Music Commission.  I know what they will do.

Kentucky Headhunters Celebrate 25 Years of Pickin' On Nashville

 
Kentucky Headhunters Celebrate 25 Years of Pickin' On Nashville
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 17, 2014) – It was the album that Nashville – or the music industry as a whole – didn't quite know what to do with. But, the fans quickly figured it out. On October 17, 1989 – twenty-five years ago today - Mercury Records released the album Pickin' On Nashville, the debut disc from The Kentucky Headhunters.

The band originated in 1968 and was comprised of Richard and Fred Young, along with cousins Greg Martin and Anthony Kenney. They didn’t look or sound like any other groups in the business, they were more comfortable in t-shirts and jeans than your typical stage attire – and their sound was a hybrid of Country, Southern Rock, and Blues.

Growing up in Edmonton, KY on a family farm, the band had played together for over twenty years prior to their big break. That time period included a couple of brushes with the spotlight. Under the name Itchy Brother (Richard Young recalls the name came from a scraggly lion from the cartoon Bongo Congo), the group were groomed by Capricorn Records in the 1970s, and almost signed with Led Zeppelin’s Swan Song Records in the early 1980s. However, the third crack at the big time proved to be the charm.

With a lineup that now included bass player and vocalist Doug Phelps, and his brother, Ricky Lee, the die was firmly cast for stardom. Having created a buzz with their live appearances in the Southern Kentucky area, as well as “The Chitlin’ Show,” their popular radio show at WLOC in Munfordville, by 1988, the Headhunters were ready to take their sound nationwide. Encouraged by their fans and friends like Tom Long, Larry Shell, and manager (and former Swan Song exec) Mitchell Fox, the boys agreed to roll the dice and take their music to Nashville.

Richard Young remembers their showcase in Nashville. "As soon as I hit those first chords of ‘Walk Softly on This Heart of Mine,’ it looked like someone yelled "’There’s a bomb in here!’ With the exception of the bartender, waitress and a few friends, we cleared Douglas Corner. One man was left standing, Harold Shedd, then president of Mercury Records. He came up, took one of our homemade albums and left. The next day he called and said, ‘Boys, we may be cooking hamburgers next year, but I gotta try this.”

Shedd’s gamble proved to be right on the money. “Walk Softly On This Heart Of Mine,” the Bill Monroe classic was released as the first single, hitting the Billboard Country Singles chart on September 30, 1989. Radio didn’t know what hit them, as the group watched the single move up the charts.  Though the single only made it to No. 25 on the charts, Stan Hitchcock at CMT was paying attention, and the video spread the music of the Kentucky Headhunters around the nation like wildfire.

Pickin’ On Nashville included three more singles, “Dumas Walker,” “Rock and Roll Angel,” and their top-ten cover of Don Gibson’s “Oh Lonesome Me.” When the dust settled, the disc sold well over two million copies, and was named as the 1990 Album of the Year by the Country Music Association – not bad, when considering the group recorded the album in three days for only $4500 – an unheard of amount of time and money then and now. The success of the album also led to back-to-back wins for Vocal Group of the Year from the CMA in 1990 and 1991. They also won the Academy of Country Music trophy for Vocal Group of the Year, an American Music Award, and the most coveted award in all of music – a Grammy Award for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for the album. Their fan base would also include some of the biggest artists of all time, such as ZZ Top. Young recalls a conversation he once had with the architects of Rock & Roll, Carl Perkins.  “You know Carl, I was beginning to think we would never get an album out,” he told the man behind “Blue Suede Shoes.”  To which Perkins replied, "Yeah buddy, but when ya'll came out, you came out sideways!” Truer words were never spoken.

All of these years later, the success keeps coming for the Kentucky Headhunters. Never one to be pigeon-holed in any one specific genre, the group continues to tour and record to this day. All in all, they have released thirteen albums, including their self-titled disc this year. They also continue to play to packed houses both here in the United States and abroad.

Sparta, TN (October 16, 2014)—Bluegrass and Country music legend, Lester Flatt, was honored in his hometown of Sparta, Tennessee recently when city and county officials joined forces to unveil an historical marker in his honor during Sparta's annual event, Liberty Square: A Lester Flatt Celebration
 
Plans for the marker began nearly 18 months ago when Sparta residents, Blake and Kimberly Williams presented the idea at a White County Commissioners meeting to have a marker placed at Oaklawn Cemetery where Flatt is buried. "Lester was a very humble man and when he passed away, he didn't want a lot of attention," explains Blake Williams, who is a former member of Flatt's band, the Nashville Grass, and was also a pallbearer at Flatt's funeral. "Kimberly and I have talked to many people who worked with Lester over the years and also to his family, and we've all felt the same way—that we wanted to do something in his honor. Since he would have been 100 years old in June of this year, it just made sense to do it now."
 
The commissioners agreed and voted unanimously to pass the budget for the marker. Sparta's Mayor, Jeff Young, was at the meeting and without hesitation volunteered to pay for half the cost and offered any assistance needed to see the project through. "With the green light from both city and county officials in place, Kimberly began the legwork that involved working with the officials, tasking music journalist Barry Mazor, with the text for the marker and enlisting the help of W.D. Stone & Associates on a design."
 
The historical marker was unveiled during the city's annual event, named for Flatt, on Saturday, October 11th. "We've been producing 'Liberty Square: A Lester Flatt Celebration' for well over a decade now and were thrilled to be able to commemorate Lester Flatt's 100 years in bluegrass with this marker and some very special guests," states Sparta Mayor, Jeff Young. The 45-minute ceremony included a special music presentation by Blake Williams who enlisted the help of another Nashville Grass alumni, Roland White, as well as Michael Cleveland, Wayne Southards, Dwayne Anderson and a guest appearance by Darin Aldridge. Tennessee State Representative Paul Bailey presented a proclamation on behalf of the State of Tennessee honoring Flatt's contributions to bluegrass and country music and Kyle Cantrell, former Grand Ole Opry announcer and current program director for SiriusXM Bluegrass Junction, spoke on Flatt's impact on him personally and professionally. In attendance and recognized during the ceremony were Flatt's granddaughter Tammy Brumfield and her husband Mike;  Don Clark, owner of the Bluegrass Bus Museum;  Danny Clark, an International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Board member; Joe Lurgio, IBMA staff member; Ashlee-Jean Trott, associate producer of Music City Roots; Ray Seckler representing his father Curly Seckler; and White County Executive Denny Wayne Robinson.
 
The historical marker will be placed at Oaklawn Cemetery located on Hwy 70 just outside of Sparta, TN in the next few weeks.

THOMAS RHETT CONCERT THIS SATURDAY


THOMAS RHETT REVS UP FOR HEADLINING TALLADEGA POST-RACE CONCERT THIS SATURDAY


Thomas Rhett Steps Up as Direct Support on Florida Georgia Line’s ANYTHING GOES TOUR 2015
 
Nashville, TN – Oct. 16, 2014 – In the race for CMA's New Artist of the Year award, first-time nominee Thomas Rhett will head to NASCAR’s most competitive track on Saturday to headline Fred’s 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series post-race concert at Talladega Superspeedway (10/18).

"Talladega is one of those iconic places that you grow up knowing about, whether you follow NASCAR or not,” said Thomas Rhett. “So, to be able to go there and perform…that definitely goes on the 'Things I'll tell my Grandkids' list."

The Platinum-selling singer/songwriter was also recently tapped as direct support for Florida Georgia Line on their upcoming ANYTHING GOES TOUR 2015, which kicks off Jan. 15 in Toledo, OH. The new tour will follow runs with some of Country Music’s biggest stars including Jason Aldean and Miranda Lambert.

TANYA TUCKER AT COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME® AND MUSEUM

 
TANYA TUCKER: STRONG ENOUGH TO BEND
OPENS NOVEMBER 14 AT
COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME® AND MUSEUM

 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 16, 2014) – The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum will explore the career of superstar Tanya Tucker with the exhibition Tanya Tucker: Strong Enough to Bend, which opens November 14, 2014, and runs through May 2015.

Tanya Tucker’s talent blossomed early, despite being born into poverty in Texas and raised in ramshackle apartments and trailers in Arizona, Utah, and Nevada. She began performing on local shows at age six, and within years was a regular on a Phoenix TV program.  A Las Vegas agent sent a demo recording to Billy Sherrill, who quickly signed Tucker to Columbia Records. She was thirteen years old.

At the time, few child performers had achieved success in country music. But the singer’s husky voice and audacious confidence made her seem more grown-up. She proved as much when she walked into a Nashville studio, in March 1972, and announced to Sherrill and the veteran musicians, “Well, I know my part, boys. Do you know yours?” She proceeded to belt out “Delta Dawn” like a seasoned pro, and by summer the song was a hit.

Tucker assured her success by releasing six consecutive Top Ten hits—including the #1s “What’s Your Mama’s Name,” “Blood Red and Goin’ Down,” and “Would You Lay With Me (in a Field of Stone)”—in two years, all produced by Sherrill. The narrative songs told daring stories that courted controversy, and Tucker’s mature-beyond-her-years vocal style brought out the drama and emotion in each.

Two years into her singing career, Tucker appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine—a rare national media spotlight for a country star in 1974. To her parents, Beau and Juanita Tucker, such recognition signified that their teen daughter had crossover potential that could take her beyond the country audience.

On October 10, 1974—Tucker’s sixteenth birthday—she signed a $1.4 million contract with MCA Records, a deal brokered by her ambitious father. Her seven years on MCA yielded the #1 hits “Lizzie and the Rainman.” “San Antonio Stroll,” and “Here’s Some Love.” In 1978, she recorded the rock-influenced album T.N.T. in Los Angeles.

In California, Tucker began dating singer Glen Campbell, twenty-two years her senior; their fiery, tabloid-filled relationship ended in acrimony.  After a stint with Arista Records, Tucker signed with Capitol Records and reunited with producer Jerry Crutchfield, with whom she had worked at MCA.

Tucker’s 1986 album, Girl Like Me, featured four Top Ten hits, including the #1 “Just Another Love.” She enjoyed a long run of success on Capitol (and sister label Liberty), with a string of Top Ten hits through 1997, including three consecutive #1s, “I Won’t Take Less Than Your Love,” “If It Don’t Come Easy,” and “Strong Enough to Bend.”

Tanya Tucker heard her name called as the 1991 CMA Female Vocalist of the Year while lying in a hospital bed, watching the awards show on TV. Earlier the same day, she had delivered her second child, Beau.

Her first child, daughter Presley, was born in July 1989—a year after Tucker had checked herself into the Betty Ford Center over issues with substance abuse. Her third child, Layla, arrived in 1999.

For Tucker, the CMA award came at a time when some radio stations refused to play her music while criticizing her choice to be a single mother. The CMA award, the first of her career, proved that the country music industry at large continued to support her. The national media cited Tucker’s win, and her eighteen Top Ten hits between 1988 and 1994, as signs that country music reflected the evolving roles of women in American society.

Tucker detailed her colorful life story in her 1997 autobiography, Nickel Dreams: My Life. The singer also starred in her own reality show, Tuckerville, on cable network TLC. “Every one of us has good and bad times in our lives,” Tucker wrote in Nickel Dreams. “In my case, they have been to extremes.”

Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum is operated by the Country Music Foundation, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) educational organization chartered by the state of Tennessee in 1964. The museum’s mission is the preservation of the history of country and related vernacular music rooted in southern culture.  With the same educational mission, the foundation also operates CMF Records, the museum’s Frist Library and Archive, CMF Press, Historic RCA Studio B and Hatch Show Print®.
