KRISTIAN BUSH LETS SPARKS FLY WITH “LIGHT ME UP”

KRISTIAN BUSH LETS SPARKS FLY WITH “LIGHT ME UP”



Second Single From Critically-Acclaimed Debut Solo Album SOUTHERN GRAVITY





NASHVILLE, TN (June 1, 2015) – Platinum-selling country star and Streamsound Recording artist Kristian Bush is letting sparks fly with the release of his new single “Light Me Up” today, June 1. The track is already one of the most added at country radio. 
 
The anthemic love song, co-written by Bush and Jesse Rice (“Cruise”), marks the eagerly awaited follow-up to Bush’s Top 20 hit “Trailer Hitch,” and shows a different side of this multi-faceted artist. “When you are loved by someone, it changes you forever,” says Bush of “Light Me Up.” “I decided to write a song to celebrate that.”
 
 
Bush is currently on the road for a two-week long military tour of U.S. military bases in Japan. Following those performances, he will return to Nashville, TN for the CMA Music Festival, making several appearances throughout the week including the Bluebird Cafe (6/9), the CMA Close-Up Stage (6/11), the Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman (6/13), the Chevy Riverfront stage (6/13), and the HGTV Lodge (6/14). In the evenings, he will sit in as the on-air host for BBC2 Radio/Bob Harris Country’s coverage of the LP Field concerts for the third consecutive year.
 
The GRAMMY-winning recording artist has been leaving his mark on music for more than two decades. The singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist started his career with folk-rock duo Billy Pilgrim in the early ‘90s; in 2004, he exploded onto the country music scene with Sugarland, surpassing sales of over 22 million albums worldwide, achieving five No. 1 singles and winning numerous awards, including GRAMMYs, AMAs, ACMs, CMT Music Awards and CMAs. To date, Bush has garnered six BMI Awards for his songwriting, and in 2011 he founded the music publishing company and songwriting collective Songs of the Architect. Recent collaborations include Laura Bell Bundy, Larkin Poe, Dan Tyminski, Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale and more. Bush is currently serving as a celebrity ambassador for Goodwill Industries International, with “Trailer Hitch” featured as the centerpiece of their #GiveItAway campaign.

A THOUSAND HORSES LEADS THE PACK WITH #1 HIT “SMOKE”

A THOUSAND HORSES LEADS THE PACK WITH #1 HIT “SMOKE”
First New Act Of 2015 To Top The Country Charts

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 1, 2015) – A Thousand Horses haven’t slowed down since their history-making debut on the Country charts earlier this year with their first single “Smoke.” The hit song has reached the number 1 spot this week on both Mediabase and Billboard Country Airplay charts, one week before their debut album, Southernality (Republic Nashville), is released on June 9.

"Absolutely unreal! I've dreamed of this day since I picked up a guitar and started trying to write songs when I was 12 years old," frontman Michael Hobby reflects. "We are all so appreciative of Country radio for their support and to the fans for making this song theirs."

“It's rare air for an act in any genre of music to accomplish what A Thousand Horses has just achieved,” added Jimmy Harnen, EVP Big Machine Label Group/President Republic Nashville. “Country radio has welcomed this band with open arms and we are incredibly grateful for their support!  It takes a village to break a band so on behalf of the entire team and to everyone who has cheered this band on along the way, we say, thank you to all of the believers!”

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 1, 2015) – The spotlight exhibit devoted to multi-talented legend Kenny Rogers will end its run at the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum on June 15, 2015 giving CMA Music Fest fans one last opportunity to see the exhibit before it closes. Incorporating awards, costumes, sheet music, memorabilia, and more from Rogers’s personal vault as well as from the collections of frequent collaborators, Kenny Rogers: Through the Years provides a comprehensive look at Rogers’s acclaimed musical phases and other artistic outlets.

Rogers has sold more than 120 million records worldwide. What’s more, he has charted a single in each of the last seven decades—including 21 Billboard #1 country hits. According to the RIAA, he has one diamond album, 19 platinum albums, and 31 gold albums. He has earned three Grammys, six Country Music Association awards (including a 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award), eight Academy of Country Music awards—including Entertainer of the Year in 1978—and was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2013.

The exhibit features dozens of artifacts including:
  • Costume pieces worn and used by Rogers in the five-part Gambler TV movie series, including a fedora and gun belt, a Western-cut jacket, shirt and brocade vest, and a cane with a brass knob
  • A Tony Alamo of Nashville denim outfit, embellished with rhinestones and studs, worn by Rogers as the front man for Kenny Rogers and The First Edition in the 1970s
  • Dolly Parton’s rhinestone-embellished velvet jacket and dress, which she wore during a performance of “Islands in the Stream” with Rogers on her TV show, Dolly
  • Dottie West’s Bob Mackie outfit with bugle beading and Dolcis pumps, worn in performance with Rogers
  • Assorted cameras used by Rogers, including two Polaroid models; a Calument Scientific Inc. 8" x 10" folding camera; and a Linhof Master Technika Classic camera, used by Rogers to capture the fifty-eight studio portraits of country artists in his third book of photos, Kenny Rogers: This Is My Country
  • Numerous awards, including the CMA Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award; Grammy statuettes; the Academy of Country Music’s Cliffie Stone Pioneer Award; and the Honorary Master of Photography award presented to Rogers by the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) at its annual conference; and more

CD: ANDY STANLEY - Back To God

ANDY STANLEY
Back To God
Back To God - What Would Our World Be - New Horizons - A Man Stands The Tallest - On The Wings Of A Dove - Far Side Banks of Jordan - How Great Thou Art - One Day At A Time - Old Rugged Cross - Just A Closer Walk With Thee
 
    Andy Stanley makes his home in Michigan, and he's an old friend that has been doing 'real' country music for a long long time.  His dairy-farm operations have been very successful for him, giving him the ways and means to bring his 'style' of country music to the CD-disc, and the public at large, making it possible for all of us to enjoy his music.  His biggest hit so far has been "Snowgoose" which received considerable radio air play.  It kind of reminds me of how Andy sings.  If you like Eddy Arnold blended with Burl Ives, you kind of have what Andy Stanley sounds like as a vocalist.
    He's also a songwriter and wrote two songs on this album, but he is also using some really nice original songs from mutual friends.  Terry Smith is the guy who wrote 'Far Side Banks of Jordan' for Johnny and June Carter Cash, and Andy does a magnificent job on the song on this CD.  Both Terry and Andy will be at the 40th National Old-Time Country Music Gathering in LeMars, Iowa, this year (Aug 31-Sept 6).  So will Daniel Tousignant who wrote "What Would Our World Be."  Quite a gathering of really good songwriters.
     I really like the musical instrumentation backing on this CD, lots of very nice, not too loud, steel guitar which is no longer featured in so called 'country' music of today.  Neither is the fiddle, and the latest development is to eliminate the guitar lead so radio stations who play this 'kind' of modern music has more time for commercials.  Wow, what in the world happened to country music.  Thank God we have the likes of Andy Stanley who continues the 'real' work of 'real' country music.  And, he's not afraid or ashamed to sing his songs to the glory of Jesus Christ, the savior and salvation of nearly every single one of 'real' country music fans, myself included.  Thank you for that Andy Stanley for the strength of character, and the strength of an artist to keep the vitally important part of our lives intact and meaningful to all of us.  Five stars to Andy Stanley on "Back To God."  Bring some with you to LeMars Andy.

CD: JIMMY ARTHUR ORDGE - Country Music Legend

JIMMY ARTHUR ORDGE
Country Music Legend
Snowflake - If Heartache Is The Fashion - Shepherd Of My Heart - Skip A Rope - Mail Order Bride - Does My Ring Hurt Your Finger - Drunken Driver - Chilly Winds - Don't Call Me I'll Call You - Child of Clay
 
    One of Canada's most popular country music recording artists, is without a doubt country music legend Jimmy Arthur Ordge.  This particular CD is incredibly well done, with the distinction of Jimmy's voice standing tall and proud.  He's a very good vocalist, and the backing musicians are exceptional, though the CD doesn't tell us who they are.  Traditional and classic country music has always been very popular in Canada, and still is, much more so than in the USA where the word 'country' has been hijacked and forced to define a musical art form that is so far from being real 'country' it no longer means anything at all.
     Jimmy Ordge's voice is perfect for 'real' country music, and he's incredibly popular in Canada, as well as other world-wide radio stations that play his records internationally.  I particularly like "Skip A Rope" a hit by Henson Cargill in 1967.  That particular song touched on some amazing topics, far ahead of its time.  Verbal spousal abuse, tax evasion, even racism, and at the end, this song laid blame for what children say directly at the feet of their parents.  Jimmy does this song very well, and a couple of times he does a kind of Red Sovine style talk-song, particularly "Drunken Driver," which demonstrates his ability to 'tell a story' in a song.  All the way through this CD, Jimmy shows us what a wonderful country singer he is.
     He was born and raised in the Donalda area of Canada, and became a regular on "Old Dad Taylor's Jubilee Jamboree," and went on to become a regular on radio and television shows.  His first hit was "Irena Cheyenne" which won him his first Moffat Award.  He had other hits in Canada, but lesser known in America, "Muk Tuk Annie" and "Hershel's Hemi Half-Ton."
     Jimmy has been nominated for a 2015 induction into America's Old Time Country Music Hall of Fame, whether he is able to attend for the ceremonies remains to be seen.  In the meantime, I am forwarding this CD to the Rural Roots Music Commission to find their reaction to what I consider one of the better country CD's to come out of Canada.  Especially good playing by the background players is the harmonica and fiddle, predominate throughout, and incredibly well done.  The whole production makes today's country music in Nashville sound like a pale imitation of the real thing.
