 THE SWON BROTHERS HELP FORMER TENNESSEE VOLUNTEERS FOOTBALL COACH,
PHIL FULMER, SURPRISE HIS DAUGHTER  WITH SPECIAL WEDDING RECEPTION PERFORMANCE 
NASHVILLE, TN (October 24, 2014) - CMA "Vocal Duo of The Year" nominees, The Swon Brothers, warmed the hearts of many last weekend when they surprised the daughter of former Tennessee Volunteers football coach, Phil Fulmer, with a special rendition of Tim McGraw’s “My Little Girl,” for the daddy/daughter dance at her wedding reception. Coach Fulmer planned the special appearance for his daughter and enlisted the help of the brothers. 
The duo performed at the wedding reception following their show at the Foothills Fall Festival on Saturday October 18th in Maryville, TN. 
Fulmer's daughter, Allison, and the rest of the family became fans of Zach & Colton when they appeared on Season 4 of NBC’s ‘The Voice,’ so Coach Fulmer thought it would be an excellent surprise for his daughter on her big day. 
Fulmer presented Zach and Colton with personally autographed UT footballs to show his appreciation.

The Band Perry Shares Career Experiences

 The Band Perry Shares Career Experiences with
Belmont University Music Students During Special Master Class 
   
Nashville, TN (October 24, 2014) – 2014 CMA “Vocal Group of The Year” nominees, The Band Perry, took time out of their busy touring and recording schedule last week to give a Master Class at Belmont University’s School of Music in Nashville.  
With Massey Concert Hall as their backdrop, the sibling trio shared the backstory on how they started in the music industry, which included raising money for sound gear by selling homemade caramel apples door to door and traveling around the southeast to play shopping malls, campsites and restaurants. The band stressed the importance of perseverance, a strong support system, and accepting constructive criticism. They also mentioned the development of stage presence in addition to technical skills. 
The reigning ACM “Vocal Group of The Year” shared their strategy on how they grew “from a band to a brand,” encouraging students to find their own voice and focus on what they do best and what makes them unique.  They also lent advice on coping with the rigors of breaking into the music business, a challenge very familiar to many of the young performers in the room.  At the end of the hour, the band answered questions from the students, and then treated the audience to an impromptu acoustic performance of their quintessential hit, “If I Die Young.” 
"It was great to have Kimberly, Reid and Neil speak to our music students," said Dr. Cynthia Curtis, Dean of The College of Visual and Performing Arts.  "Practical advice from professional musicians is an integral part of our students' education, and we could not have scripted this Master Class any better. The Band Perry offered our students real-life information about what the combination of talent and hard work can bring. Coming from an intelligent, accomplished and relatable act like The Band Perry, this advice was exactly what our students needed to hear as they begin to pursue their own professional careers."
 ABOUT THE BAND PERRY
One of the most dynamic acts in music today, The Band Perry has achieved both massive mainstream success and major critical acclaim since delivering their platinum self-titled debut. Introducing the sibling trio as a powerful new force on the country scene, 2010’s The Band Perry offered up five hit singles, including the quintuple-platinum chart-topper “If I Die Young” and other platinum hits – the #1 “All Your Life” and “You Lie” – as well as “Hip to My Heart” and “Postcard from Paris.” For the band’s gold-certified second album Pioneer, frontwoman Kimberly Perry and her younger brothers Reid and Neil delved deeper into an edgy, rock-and-roll-inspired sound while staying true to their Southern roots. Featuring the platinum #1 single “Better Dig Two” and the gold #1 “DONE.” (plus smash hits “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely” and “Chainsaw”), Pioneer found The Band Perry widening their appeal and continuing to showcase their breathtaking three-part harmonies.


In recent years, The Band Perry has earned multiple awards from the likes of The Academy of Country Music, The Country Music Association, CMT Music Awards, and The American Country Awards. They have also received nominations from The American Music Awards, The Billboard Music Awards, and the Grammy Awards. Named Vocal Group of the Year by the ACM in 2014, the group also kicked off the WE ARE PIONEERS WORLD TOUR in late 2013 and quickly established themselves as a global powerhouse. Their latest single, a spirited rendition of Glen Campbell’s “Gentle on My Mind,” also appears on the soundtrack for I’ll Be Me, a documentary about the country music legend. The band is currently at work on new music for their upcoming third album.The WE ARE PIONEERS WORLD TOUR continues through the end of the year.

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.”
