DIERKS BENTLEY SELL OUTS THE WEST COAST

DIERKS BENTLEY WRAPS THE WEEKEND WITH SELL OUTS
ACROSS THE WEST COAST ON THE 2014 RISER TOUR



Smash Hit Of The Summer "Drunk On A Plane" Soars Up the Top Five At Country Radio This Week


Nashville, TN – July 28, 2014 – Country Music Star Dierks Bentley made an unforgettable run of 2014 RISER TOUR dates across the west coast this weekend, beginning with a capacity crowd at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater on 7/23. The tour’s biggest weekend yet also included full houses at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre and San Diego's Sleep Train Amphitheatre.  The highlight for the weekend, however, was the Grammy nominated singer's return to his hometown of Phoenix to perform for more than 17,000 fans at the Ak-Chin Pavilion. 

In total disbelief, Bentley told the enthusiastic hometown crowd, "For those of you who don't know me, you're participating in the best night of my life right now."  Bentley went on to humbly dedicate both of his GOLD certified No. one hits "I Hold On" and "Home" to his friends in the Valley and to the families of the fallen Granite Mountain Hot Shots, who perished a year ago in the Yarnell Hill Fires.

Big & Rich Breaking New Ground with Historic New Album Release

Gravity

'Gravity' Set to Explode Its Way onto the Music Scene on September 23rd
  NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 28, 2014) – Country superstars Big & Rich, Big Kenny and John Rich, are celebrating 10 years of hit music making with their highly-anticipated new album, Gravity.   It’s the multi-platinum selling duo’s fifth studio album and is set to launch on September 23, 2014.  Big & Rich’s lead-off single for the project, “Look at You” has already proven a chart-climbing success.  Their first studio album, Horse of a Different Color, was released by Warner Bros. in 2004, producing four straight hits, including the iconic "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)."   Other accolades include being first-rate songwriters, producers and musicians with a roster of collaborations and hits produced or penned for various artists including Jason Aldean, Gretchen Wilson, James Otto, Martina McBride, Faith Hill, Merle Haggard, Bon Jovi, John Anderson, Willie Nelson, Jewel, Keith Anderson, Hank Williams, Jr., John Legend, Wyclef Jean, Tim McGraw, Ky-Mani Marley and Cowboy Troy.

In addition to the latest recording project, the larger-than-life duo has formed its own label, Big & Rich Records, a partnership with Kobalt Label Services.  Big Kenny describes the business venture and forthcoming CD as a platform for gaining creative control of their trailblazing musical legacy.  "This is an exciting and intense time in the history of Big and Rich.  We continue to embrace all the change that happens in our business of entertainment.  As artists, we are now at the place where we can finally gain complete creative control.  That's huge.  It allows us to be true to ourselves and be the trailblazers we've always risked being. We want to be important to Country music.  It's important to Big and Rich. It is our musical legacy.  Our new album title is perfect.  Big and Rich can now really feel the Gravity.  We are counting our blessings," he says.

John Rich adds, "We couldn't be happier with how the fans and radio are responding to our new music!  To take on the challenge of being your own label and slugging it out with the majors is a gambler's move, but BK and I are happy to just let it all ride.”

Big & Rich are generating rave reviews for the summer leg of their 2014 concert tour with shows spanning across the U.S. and Canada.  Cities among upcoming stops for the tour include Orlando, Grand Rapids, Spokane, Hampton, Panama City and more.

TIM MCGRAW SUNDOWN



TIM MCGRAW BEGINS TO SHED LIGHT ON SUNDOWN HEAVEN TOWN 
– SET FOR RELEASE SEPT. 16

McGraw Returns As Co-Producer with Byron Gallimore On The New Project


Nashville, TN- July 28, 2014- Country music icon Tim McGraw revealed more details today about his upcoming Big Machine Record's album, SUNDOWN HEAVEN TOWN, available everywhere on Sept. 16.  With a staggering 35 No. one hits and 54 Top 10 singles to his credit, McGraw presents a new collection of songs that capture a distinctly country and a distinctly McGraw sound.  The album was co-produced by McGraw and his longtime collaborator Byron Gallimore and features both a 13 track standard and 18 track deluxe version.  The album cover was revealed to fans on Facebook this morning, and is available for pre-order on iTunes, Amazon MP3 starting tomorrow, July 29.

"This album is very encompassing of everything that I’ve done in my career," said McGraw.  "I think it’s a good microcosm of what my 20 or so years in music have been, in a lot of ways.  You can certainly hear parts of my career throughout all of these songs, as well as the future and where my music is headed.  To me, the title of the album is all about that time where you stop doing what you have to do, and start doing what you want to do. "

"I feel like I’ve got a lot of music in me and that's part of the reason why this album is so soon after the last one and why I wanted to start sharing it with everyone as soon as I could," continues McGraw.   "I’m excited about where music is gonna take me and where I’m gonna take my music."

To build anticipation of the new album, McGraw launched his sold-out summer tour ahead of the album's release and began revealing tracks through his "Countdown to Sundown" program.  Over the past few months, he has made high profile performances where he introduced new songs to fans for the first time.  He has appeared on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon to perform "Shotgun Rider," on The Voice where he debuted "City Lights," at NBC's TODAY where he revealed "Overrated" and on the Academy of Country Music Awards, where the performance of "Meanwhile Back At Mama's (featuring Faith Hill) spawned so much fan demand that it was immediately released as the next single.   The song is currently driving up the Top 10 at country radio.

Out of Amarillo, Texas, came a singer/songwriter and super guitarist that became one of the main movers and shakers of Austin’s progressive country scene of the 1970s and '80s. “It was a life-changing childhood experience that inspired him to be a musician. When he was 7, his parents took him to a local Pontiac dealership to hear a piano-pounding singer from Ferriday, Louisiana named Jerry Lee Lewis. "I'll never forget that vision of my childhood," Ely remembered years later. "You could hardly see across the street, and then there's this madman up there pounding on a piano. The wind was blowing so hard it would blow the microphone over. Jerry Lee would be singing and the microphone would go thump! And somebody'd run over and pick it up and it would fall over again. It was like a vision from hell. But it was so wonderful because it seemed like it fit, with the wind blowing and the static electricity in the air. I always look back at that moment as the very beginning, the spark that made me consider doing this as my life." And one can easily pick up on that influence when listening to Ely’s DEFINITIVE COLLECTION #19 - “Musta Notta Gotta Lotta” that sends us into the same toe-tapping tailspin as Lewis’s Great Balls Of Fire.
Even with the influences of others in the music industry, Joe Ely is, without a doubt, a sound of another color. His music touches on honky-tonk, Texas Country, Tex-Mex and rock and roll. He has had a genre-crossing career, performing with Bruce Springsteen, Uncle Tupelo, Los Super Seven, The Chieftains and James McMurtry in addition to his early work with The Clash and more recent acoustic tours with Lyle Lovett, John Hiatt, and Guy Clark to name only a few.
Ely's own first, self-titled album was released in 1977. “Further albums- HONKY TONK MASQUERADE and DOWN ON THE DRAG showed that the first album was no fluke. An electric country-rock outfit designed to play up-tempo honky-tonk music for dancing audiences, the Joe Ely Band proved to be a very popular live act, not only in Texas, but also Europe. Ely and his band perfected a mind-blowing celebration of Texas honky-tonk music, mixing rock sounds with the traditional to bring it slap-bang up-to-date. They were not from Nashville or Austin and were not even proper Outlaws, but Ely and band became their own breed of drifters by knocking out barroom crowds in far-flung places like Manhattan and Minneapolis and even Manchester.” (Quote: Alan Cackett)
Throughout his career, Ely has issued a steady stream of albums, most on the MCA label, and a live album roughly every ten years. The Joe Ely Band song "Brainlock" was featured in the 1980 movie Roadie starring Meat Loaf, Alice Cooper, Don Cornelius, and Kaki Hunter. In the late 1990s Ely was asked to write songs for the soundtrack of Robert Redford's movie The Horse Whisperer, which led to re-forming The Flatlanders with Gilmore and Hancock. A new album from the trio followed in 2002, with a third in 2004.
In February 2007, Ely released Happy Songs From Rattlesnake Gulch on his own label, Rack 'Em Records. Ely said in an interview with Country Standard Time that he thought it would be easier to release the material on his own label instead of dealing with a regular record label and their release cycles. A book of Ely's writings, Bonfire of Roadmaps, was published in early 2007 by the University of Texas Press. In early 2008, Ely released a new live album featuring Joel Guzman on accordion recorded at the Cactus Cafe in Austin, Texas late 2006. The Flatlanders released their newest album "Hills and Valleys" on March 31, 2009. In 2011, Ely released the critically acclaimed album, "Satisfied At Last”.
This reviewer highly recommends that you stay home, give a party and kick off your shoes as you listen to the changing genre’ from rock and roll of Musta Notta Gotta Lotta to seeing DALLAS out of a DC9 at night. The Definitive Collection of Joe Ely contains a smorgasbord of arrangements in sound to savor the appetite of feel good music cravers worldwide… yesterday, today, and tomorrow. (Ps: If you’re not an avid exerciser, you will be after hearing this one. Guaranteed you will have a ball.)
