2015 Country Music Hall of Fame Inductees Announced

2015 Country Music Hall of Fame Inductees Announced

On March 25 at the Country Hall of Fame and Museum's rotunda, the Class of 2015 Inductees were announced by the Hall of Famer "Little Miss Dynamite" Brenda Lee. 

The speculations are always many among country music lovers and media before the names of the honorees are revealed. This year artists that were in the predictions will be inducted in the Veteran's Era, and they are Jim Ed Brown and The Browns. The Modern Era category inductees are The Oak Ridge Boys and the late Grady Martin will be inducted in the category Recording and/or Touring Musician active prior to 1980.

All of the inductees have contributed in significant ways to keep country music alive and well, broaden its audience and keep it on people's minds and in their hearts. If you ever have heard "On The Road Again" with Willie Nelson, "Hound Dog" by Elvis Presley and "El Paso" by Marty Robbins, you have heard Grady Martin play. Jim Ed Brown and The Browns have given us "Looking Back To See", "Three Bells" and "The Old Lamplighter" and toured all over the world which made people who hadn't been familiar with the genre before discover and start loving country music.

The Oak Ridge Boys is a group that - just like The Browns - has very distinct and original style vocal harmonies, but unlike The Browns intricate soft and tender style, The Oak Ridge Boys have put more emphasis on - in their own words - power. Starting out as a gospel quartet, they went over to country in 1977 and had their first success with "Y'all Come Back Saloon". "Elvira" is another of their big hits.


A Medallion Ceremony will be held for the inductees later this fall.

CHRIS JANSON SAILING HIGH WITH “BUY ME A BOAT”

CHRIS JANSON SAILING HIGH WITH “BUY ME A BOAT”


New Song Shatters Digital Sales, Soaring To #1 On iTunes Country Chart


Superstars Are Abuzz About The Fresh Tune


Buy Me A Boat

Courtesy of Chris Janson
NASHVILLE, TN (March 25, 2015) – Unsigned, independent artist Chris Janson was all the buzz Friday morning (3/20) when his dream-big anthem "Buy Me A Boat" sailed high at iTunes landing at #1 on the Country and #7 on the all genre charts. Continuing to make massive waves, the tune shattered digital sales with over 21K sold in only three days, an impressive feat since Janson is virtually unknown outside of Nashville and has no radio promotion staff.

“Buy Me A Boat” received a boost from DJ Bobby Bones who gave it a high-profile endorsement on his nationally syndicated Bobby Bones Show following the release. As Bones told Rolling Stone, “It’s not often that I play completely untested, unsigned artists…We played the same song [“Buy Me A Boat”] twice in a half hour, which is a no-no. It hit Top 15 and I realized this song had real legs…And I’ll be damned it hit Number One and took down Sam Hunt, which has been the Number One song for weeks.”

Janson, a formidable songwriter in his own right (Tim McGraw’s “Truck Yeah”), co-wrote the song with Chris Dubois (who has co-written a stream of #1 hits for Brad Paisley). “Every song I’ve written in the last couple of years, I was always thinking of who’s recording now, or who’s looking for songs, or what I could do to write for somebody else and get another ‘Truck Yeah,’” said Janson to Rolling Stone. “I just had to have that one ["Buy Me A Boat"] for me. It’s rare that I love one that much.”

Amidst the song’s heat wave, “Chris Janson” trended in the Top 10 on Twitter amongst superstars including Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. Celebrities and heavy-hitting songwriters also continued the momentum with endorsements on Twitter. Toby Keith exclaimed, “Check out this mofo of a song #BuyMeABoat from @janson_chris” while ABC’s “Nashville” actor Charles Esten tweeted, “A little @mrBobbyBones love for a great @janson_chris song helped put “Buy Me A Boat” to #1.” Additional Twitter support came from Country artist RaeLynn, GRAMMY-Award winning producer and songwriter Luke Laird (Kacey Musgraves, Kenny Chesney) and songwriter Ben Hayslip (Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan). 

As the song continues its stronghold in the Top 10 on iTunes, Janson has a full schedule of dates where “Buy Me A Boat” is sure to be anticipated and echoed by the crowds including April 3rd and 4th at the Grand Ole Opry, followed by Country Thunder (Florence, AZ) on April 11th and Stagecoach (Indio, CA) on April 26th.

With undeniable charisma, Janson brings a blue-collar, working-class, boot-stomping hillbilly redneck attitude to bear on every live performance, earning him opening slots for Florida Georgia Line, music legends Merle Haggard and Hank Williams Jr., as well as over 60 appearances at the Grand Ole Opry. The talented songwriter began writing at just 18 with an impressive group of musicians from the likes of Guns N’ Roses to the esteemed Larry Gatlin and co-wrote Tim McGraw’s highest chart debut of his career, “Truck Yeah.” The Perryville, Missouri native first broke onto the music scene when he landed a year long, four show a day gig at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge on Nashville’s Lower Broadway. Janson is currently focusing on a heavy summer touring season and writing songs for his debut album.

Ashley Monroe's Billboard Success and New Single

Ashley Monroe's Billboard Success and New Single

Ashley Monroe is having great success as a solo act. Recently she was on top of the Billboard's Country Airplay Chart with the vocal event and hit single "Lonely Tonight" that she is singing with Blake Shelton.

Her newest solo single "On To Something Good" is a sweet and softly groovy song with hopefulness written all over and in it. It says it can go either way, but the end result is always going to be good when you come out from where you were.
The sweetnees of the singer, the song and the sound may fool you unless you really listen to the lyrics, because they are very well crafted with lines that converse with life itself.

The new single is a promising start of what is going to be an upcoming album. Her last album, "Like A Rose", was released in 2013.

Link to the video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fc05bVvN27Y


In case you didn't know, Ashley Monroe was one third of the project "Pistol Annies".

3RD ANNUAL CRAIG CAMPBELL CELEBRITY

3RD ANNUAL CRAIG CAMPBELL CELEBRITY CORNHOLE CHALLENGE TO RAISE AWARENESS FOR COLORECTAL CANCER


National Spokesperson for One Million Strong Campaign To Hold Special Event in Nashville on March 29th

NASHVILLE, TN (March 24, 2015) – BBR Music Group/Red Bow Records recording artist Craig Campbell has partnered with Fight Colorectal Cancer (Fight CRC) and Bayer HealthCare’s March awareness campaign, One Million Strong, for the 3rd Annual Craig Campbell Celebrity Cornhole Challenge. As a national spokesperson for the cause, Campbell will raise awareness for colorectal cancer education, research and prevention, while honoring more than one million colorectal cancer survivors. Fans can join the “Keep Them Kisses Comin’” singer on March 29th at Centennial Park in Nashville, TN, as the festivities kick off at 12PM CST.

During the 3rd Annual Craig Campbell Celebrity Cornhole Challenge, artists including Jerrod Niemann, Charlie Worsham and Lindsay Ell will be paired with fans who have bid online for the opportunity to play, with all proceeds going towards Fight CRC. The event will also include a festive parade, family-friendly activities and a concert in the park featuring Campbell and more.

To register for a pass to the 3rd Annual Craig Campbell Celebrity Cornhole Challenge click here.

Colorectal cancer is close to Campbell’s heart, as his father was diagnosed with the disease when Campbell was only 11-years-old, and passed away within a year. Through One Million Strong events, the singer-songwriter met colon cancer survivor, Rose Hausmann, and the two proudly co-wrote the song “Stronger Than That” to support the Fight Colorectal Cancer awareness campaign. Campbell is donating all proceeds from download sales of the song to Fight CRC, while Bayer HealthCare is giving Fight CRC $1 for each #StrongArmSelfie photo or brief video posted publicly to Twitter, Instagram, or Vine, up to a maximum of $25,000.

ABOUT CRAIG CAMPBELL:
Craig Campbell launched on to the Country music scene with the release of his self-titled debut album (2011) delivering the hits “Family Man,” “Fish,” and “When I Get It.” To date, he has logged four consecutive charted hits with over a billion radio airplay audience impressions and over a half million downloads. Acclaimed as one of the genre's most neo-traditionalist singers, his Top 15 breakout debut “Family Man” was featured on HBO’s True Blood and the top-selling fan-favorite “Fish” has tallied nearly 400,000 digital copies sold. Most recently, Campbell earned his first Top 10 smash with the infectious “Keep Them Kisses Comin’” from his sophomore album NEVER REGRET (2013) produced by Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band) and Matt Rovey (CCMA Album Of The Year Producer). The gifted songwriter co-penned six of the tracks on the twelve-song project. Prior to landing his first record deal, the Lyons, GA native spent time on the road playing keyboard for both Tracy Byrd and Luke Bryan - shows that inspired him nightly. He was soon discovered while playing a regular gig at the downtown Nashville honky-tonk, The Stage. Campbell has been playing his own headlining shows nationwide, with regular performances at the Grand Ole Opry and shared the stage with artists such as Alan Jackson, The Band Perry, Jerrod Niemann and Justin Moore. Recently signing to BBR Music Group’s Red Bow Records roster and Magic Mustang Music arm for publishing, the talented singer will be releasing a new single in early 2015.

Fight Colorectal Cancer is a leading colorectal cancer nonprofit in Washington, D.C. Through patient education, advocacy and research funding, the group spreads awareness and demands a cure for the second-leading killer in the United States.
