The Common Linnets at Gibson Club in Frankfurt Germany

The Common Linnets at Gibson Club in Frankfurt Germany

The Common Linnets are now touring in Germany, meaning they are playing a couple of concerts and doing a whole bunch of promoting in order to get sold out concerts. Okay, it could be that success from making it big in a European market and a lot of #1 hits could help assist them too.

When the Gibson Club in Frankfurt Germany opened the doors for the public at 7:00 pm, the line of fans was not really long. But, by the start of the concert at 8:00 pm, the Gibson Club was packed with music lovers and everybody that arrived on time was still able to get a seat.

The fans welcomed the band by giving them a rousing hand of applause. From the first minute of the show you would swear that the new band, which was built around Ilse DeLange, was not real country, but had a great deal of influence from Nashville.

After two songs Ilse DeLange explained to the crowd, that she was ill, but didn't want to cancel the concert, because the audience in Frankfurt meant too much to her and the band. During the show, The Common Linnets performed songs like, Calm after the Storm, Proud, Lovers & Liars, Hungry Hands, Still Loving after You and at least a handful of others.

In the end, I walked away with an empty feeling. The results I was left with were: The concert was nice but 25€ for an hour and a half show is really disputable. In my opinion, there are a lot of other bands out there that provide more bang for the buck.

Paulette Carlson Lands Spot as Nashville Veteran’s Day

Three Time Grammy Nominee and Singer Paulette Carlson
Lands Spot as Nashville Veteran’s Day Parade Grand Marshal

Three time Grammy nominee, CMA/ACM award winner and lead singer of Highway 101, Paulette Carlson, will grace the nationally recognized Nashville Veteran’s Day Parade as Grand Marshal on Tuesday, November 11th at 11am

Where:
Nashville, TN
Parade Starts: at 14th Ave & Broadway
Parade Ends: at 3rd Avenue
When:
Tuesday, November 11th @ 11am

“It is quite an honor to be asked to be the Grand Marshal in such a prominent parade which has gained recognition nationally,” Carlson said. “I always attend a parade each Veteran’s Day because I am a patriot and it’s important to honor my dad and brother who served in World War II and Vietnam (respectively), but this is my first time being invited to be the Grand Marshal.”
As a successful songwriter and longtime military supporter, it’s no surprise Carlson was selected to lead this year’s parade in Music City. Carlson penned the song “Thank You Vets” from her critically acclaimed album It’s About Time, which was a project she created for the 2005 “Operation Homecoming” event in Branson, Missouri for Vietnam Veterans. 
“My late brother, Gary, served in Vietnam in 1968 with the 82nd Airborne and in 1969 with the 173rd Airborne; he was a medic. He was 17 when he landed in Vietnam and was convoyed up to Hue in the first days of February 1968 after the Tet Offensive, which was one of the largest campaigns of surprise military attacks by the Viet Cong and North Vietnam Army on South Vietnam throughout the Vietnam War. My brother spent his 18th, 19th and 20th birthdays in Vietnam.”
Carlson’s brother is not the only military hero she looks up to. Her father served in World War II in Pacific Theater as a radio operator. “Dad even survived a crash in Burma up in the mountains of the Himalayas and had to navigate his way out of the jungle. He also had the honor of flying with Academy Award Nominated Actress Paulette Goddard. He was so impressed with her charm and beauty he named me Paulette!”
The Nashville Veteran’s Day Parade has been a Tennessee Capitol tradition for over 60 years and is one of only five parades recognized nationally by the Department of Defense. The parade features floats, antique cars, local military groups and supporters, local business and charities, and nearby high schools' marching bands, etc.
Carlson also recently signed with longtime booking veteran Gerald Murray Music LLC.
“I am pleased and thrilled to add the award-winning Paulette Carlson to our roster of dynamic artists,” said GMM/CEO Gerald Murray. “She is a great writer, singer and to top it all off, a great thinker. I believe we will do really well together.”
Gerald Murray Music LLC is a full-service booking agency, representing nationally recognized performing artists. As former manager of the late George Jones and Vern Gosdin, his impressive music roster includes Shenandoah, Doug Stone, Bryan White and others.
“I am so delighted and eager to work with Gerald Murray Music LLC.,” Paulette Carlson said. “I look forward to building a long working relationship with a top-notch company.”

FRANKIE BALLARD FIRES UP CROWD

 

FRANKIE BALLARD FIRES UP CROWD IN MINNEAPOLIS, MN WITH LIGHT ‘EM UP TOUR


“Sunshine & Whiskey” Top 10 & Climbing At Country Radio


Nashville, TN (October 22, 2014) – Warner Bros. Records’ Frankie Ballard kicked off his energetic LIGHT ‘EM UP TOUR on Thursday, October 16th at the Varsity Theater in Minneapolis, MN. As part of the exclusive Live Nation Ones To Watch tour with Skype, the run serves as the “Sunshine & Whiskey” singer’s first headlining trek, with stops in 19-cities between now and December.

To kick off the dynamic tour, Ballard teamed up with the brand new Live Nation Channel and Yahoo Screen, which is an exclusive live music channel that can deliver one exclusive convert live stream a day, and has featured popular artists such as Lady Antebellum and Dave Matthews Band.

He will continue his LIGHT ‘EM UP TOUR this weekend, with stops in Louisville, KY (10/24) and Indianapolis, IN (10/25).

Known for his energetic live shows, Ballard will amp it up even further on the Florida Georgia Line 2015 ANYTHING GOES tour. He has also landed coveted opening slots for Jake Owen, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift and longtime idol Bob Seger.

Since releasing his first #1, GOLD-certified smash “Helluva Life,” Ballard has lit up the country music scene. The Battle Creek, MI, native continues the hot streak with his follow-up infectious anthem “Sunshine & Whiskey,” which has sold over 460,000 copies to date. Currently Top 10 at Country radio, the tune is quickly approaching the top of the chart. Both songs are featured on his latest album, SUNSHINE & WHISKEY, which debuted in the Top 5 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart, and ROLLING STONE noted as “required listening.” Produced by Marshall Altman (Marc Broussard), the project captures the newcomer’s unique blend of blues-infused, country rock and his undeniable guitar prowess on every song.

RAY PRICE HONORED WITH COUNTRY'S FAMILY REUNION TRIBUTE

 
RAY PRICE HONORED WITH COUNTRY'S FAMILY REUNION TRIBUTE

5 DVD Set Available For Pre-Order; Television Tribute To Air On RFD-TV in 2015
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 22, 2014) – Rarely in life do we get to honor someone whose singing style ushered in a new way to do it. Ray Price passed away Dec 16, 2013, and Country’s Family Reunion is honoring Ray’s memory by getting together those who knew him best with a CFR Ray Price Tribute.

Janie Price, Ray’s widow, joins Bill Anderson and a room full of Ray’s friends, band members and Country artists who all paid tribute to his songs, his style and his life. Here are some of the people who came to the taping: Johnny Bush, Darrell McCall, and friends like John Conlee, Larry Gatlin, Gene Watson, Janie Fricke, Jeannie Seely, Moe Bandy, T. Graham Brown, Wade Hayes, Tracy Lawrence, Johnny Lee, Ray Pillow, Curtis Potter, Bill Mack, Linda Davis, David Ball, Teea Goans, Jim Lauderdale, Jim Ed Brown, Mo Pitney, Jan Howard and Roy Clark.

“What an honor it was to have so many great artists in one room to pay tribute to such a remarkable artist.  The stories told not only by the artists, but by his lovely wife are absolutely great,” says executive producer Larry Black.

It truly is a tribute to the man who brought us songs like “City Lights,” “Release Me,” “Crazy Arms,” “Heartaches by the Number,” “For the Good Times,” “Night Life” and so many more-- songs that were sung by his friends to honor his memory.

  About Ray Price:
Born in 1926 in Peach, Texas, Ray Price defined two major eras of Country music.  His barroom Shuffle classics made him a master of the honky-tonk style of the early 1950s, and a cornerstone of the Nashville Sound-era with a string of smooth ballads throughout the ‘60s and ‘70s.  Best known for his iconic rendering of the Kristofferson smash “For The Good Times,” the Cherokee Cowboy charted over 100 times with 46 Top Ten hits, nine #1 singles and five #1 albums.  A member of the Grand Ole Opry, Ray enjoyed Gold and Platinum album sales, won two Grammy® awards, took home a CMA trophy, earned two ACM awards - and his place in the Country Music Hall of Fame.

A “gentlemen’s gentleman,” Price fought pancreatic cancer to complete his final album project with legendary producer and longtime friend Fred Foster.  BEAUTY IS … the final sessions was released in April, following Price’s death on December 16, 2013.
