Nashville, TN (August 19, 2014) – After announcing across his social sites just days before, country star Jake Owen threw Nashville’s largest beach party for fans last night, Monday (8/18) at BMI. Taking it up a notch from the wildly successful block party last year, the capacity crowd gathered for the talented singer’s free concert, where he performed a dynamic set, including his PLATINUM-certified, #1 summer anthem “Beachin’.” Music industry insiders were also on hand to present Jake with a plaque for his Beachin’ milestone pre-show.
 
Concert highlights included songwriter Travis Meadows joining Jake onstage for a memorable performance of his emotional new single “What We Ain’t Got” and special guest Mike Posner appearing for a crowd-jumping rendition of “Cooler Than Me.” Lee Brice, Sonia Leigh, Dan + Shay and Brothers Osborne also made surprise appearances throughout the night and openers Old Dominion and The Cadillac Three got the crowd revved up.
 
Jake is currently on his major nationwide headlining run - DAYS OF GOLD TOUR 2014 - which delivers the party atmosphere with a stage set designed to resemble his hometown Riverside Café, including tiki bars, nautical ropes and palm trees. Presented by Discover Boating, the sizzling tour covers 75-plus cities.
 
Touring in support of his latest album DAYS OF GOLD, the RCA Nashville project is the follow up to the GOLD-certified BAREFOOT BLUE JEAN NIGHT album, which has sold well over 5 million tracks.
 
Previously taking home ACA and ACM Awards, the Vero Beach, Fla., native has ascended to one of Country music’s leading male vocalists with five #1 smashes – GOLD-certified hits “The One That Got Away,” “Anywhere with You,” PLATINUM-certified “Alone with You,” “Beachin’” and 2X PLATINUM “Barefoot Blue Jean Night.”

RICKY SKAGGS AND SHARON WHITE JOIN HANDS FOR FIRST-EVER STUDIO ALBUM

RICKY SKAGGS AND SHARON WHITE JOIN HANDS
FOR FIRST-EVER STUDIO ALBUM
 
 
Legendary Country Music Couple to Release HEARTS LIKE OURS on September 30, 2014
NASHVILLE, TENN. (August 19, 2014) - On August 4, country and bluegrass legend Ricky Skaggs and Sharon White (of country music's The Whites) celebrated their 33rd wedding anniversary.  Over the course of more than three decades of marriage, Skaggs and White have savored every moment of their lifelong commitment to one another.  With both of their respected careers cemented into the country music history books, one might find it hard to believe that the couple has never recorded an album together.  That all changes on September 302014 when Skaggs and White release their first-ever studio album, Hearts Like Ours.
 
In 1987, the pair won a CMA Vocal Duo of the Year award for "Love Can’t Ever Get Better Than This," but White was touring with her family band and Skaggs was on fire with his solo career, so releasing a full project wasn't possible at the time.  Skaggs and White are beyond thrilled to finally release their first full project.
 
"Hearts Like Ours is a dream come true for Sharon and I," says Skaggs.  "Being married for 33 years, you really get to know someone's heart. I know hers and she knows mine, and you can hear that on this CD.  I loved getting to work with her.  She knows what she wants."
 
White notes, "I am so happy that Ricky and I have finally done a duet CD, which we have wanted to do for years and I think our hearts are in the right place to do this now.  It was great to pick songs together and share ideas about how we wanted to do them.  I have always enjoyed making music with Ricky so this album is the fulfillment of a dream of my heart."
 
The 13-track album, releasing on Skaggs Family Records, is produced by Skaggs and White and features the couple dueting on handpicked country love songs.  The album includes songs written by some of the industry's top songwriters including Connie Smith and Marty Stuart-penned tunes, "Hearts Like Ours" and "I Run To You," Bob DiPiero and Keith Sewell's "Forever's Not Long Enough," Paul Overstreet and Don Schlitz's "Hold On Tight (Let It Go)," Leslie Satcher and Buddy Jewell's "When I'm Good And Gone" and the late Townes Van Zandt's "If I Needed You," among others.
 
About Ricky Skaggs and Sharon White
With 12 #1 hit singles14 GRAMMY® Awardseleven IBMA Awardseight ACM Awards and eight CMA Awards (including Entertainer of the Year), Ricky Skaggs is truly a pioneer of Bluegrass and Country music.  Since he began playing music more than 50 years ago, Skaggs has released more than 30 albums and has performed thousands of live shows.  Skaggs and his band, Kentucky Thunder, continue to keep the tour trail red hot, performing more than 80 live dates each year.  He started his own record label, Skaggs Family Records, in 1997 and has since released 12 consecutive GRAMMY®-nominated albums.  Last year, the Grand Ole Opry member released his first-ever autobiography, "Kentucky Traveler."  The book details the life and times of Skaggs and provides a descriptive history of Country and Bluegrass music, as told by the master himself.
 
Sharon White is a member of beloved country-gospel family band, The Whites, and has been making music alongside her father Buck and sister Cheryl for more than four decades.  They originally began as a Bluegrass group, but the family trio became well known for their string of Country hits in the 1980s, including "Hangin’ Around," "Give Me Back That Old Familiar Feeling," and "Pins and Needles."  The Whites are Grand Ole Opry members and combine a respect for – and mastery of – traditional country and bluegrass with a refreshing style in each of their performances.  They were involved in the 2001 hit movie and soundtrack, O Brother, Where Art Thou?and have gone on to win multiple awards, including GRAMMY®CMA and Dove Awards, among others.

CANADIAN COUNTRY DUO AUSTIN BELLE RELEASE NEW EP  
JUST DRIVE SEPTEMBER 16

TORONTO, ON - Vancouver-based Country duo, Austin Belle, will release their debut EP, Just Drive (Cordova Bay) on September 16, 2014. The EP will be available on iTunes and features their current single, "Just Drive," which is now playing on Canadian Country radio. Consisting of lead guitarist and songwriter Jesse Wainwright of the Rock band State of Shock and lead singer Stacey McKitrick, Austin Belle is breaking into the Country music scene from a talented award-winning background.

"Jesse and I had a blast during this entire project start to finish," said McKitrick. "It is so incredible seeing songs that started out as a mere thought come to life step by step in front of your eyes.  This record in particular gives us an incredible sense of pride because we were a part of the process the entire way, from writing, to recording, to co-producing and it was so amazing to be able to be involved. We are so excited for everyone to get a chance to hear it!"

Produced by Jeff Johnson (Small Town Pistols, Wes Mack, Chemical Cowboys, Faber Drive), the Country sound of Austin Belle's new EP is a determined force to be reckoned with. From the upbeat, catchy sound of "3 Sided Story" to the heartfelt love ballad "Back Where We Belong," each track on Just Drive recreates a full range of key life experiences for fans.

Individually, the duo have had the opportunity to perform with notable acts such as Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi and Great Big Sea. Additionally, they have won numerous awards including a JUNO for Single of the Year, two Canadian Radio Music Awards for Rock Song of the Year and Adult Contemporary Song of the Year and more.

To promote their new EP, Austin Belle will be performing dates in British Columbia and Ontario starting in September.
