NASHVILLE, TN (January 28, 2015) – Platinum-selling country star Kristian Bush brings his voice to the forefront with his highly anticipated debut solo album, SOUTHERN GRAVITY, to be released April 7 on Streamsound Records. Drawing on his proven skills as a hit-making performer, writer and producer, the record builds on the catchy, radio-friendly vibe of lead single “Trailer Hitch” and showcases Bush as a recording artist at the top of his craft.

"I love this album. The songs on SOUTHERN GRAVITY feel like home to me, and I am proud and excited to share them, finally. They are your stories as much as they are mine, and I hope you hear yourself in here, no matter if you are standing up, falling down, or dancing in between the pieces of your life,” said Bush.
For his solo debut, the GRAMMY Award winner teamed with friend and producer Tom Tapley, as well as executive producer Byron Gallimore (Sugarland, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw), to hone SOUTHERN GRAVITY’s groove-heavy mainstream country sound. Bush is a co-writer on each of the album’s 12 tracks, including collaborations with legendary Nashville songwriters like Bob DiPiero, Paul Overstreet, Tom Douglas and more.

The feel-good lead single “Trailer Hitch” – now Top 25 and rising at radio -- was released to rave reviews from music critics, radio, and fans alike. Named USA Today’s “Song of the Week,” the track was also featured in ROLLING STONE Country’s TOP 25 SONGS OF 2014 and iTunes BEST OF 2014 – COUNTRY SONGS. The infectious tune has racked up millions of streams to date, and its inspiring lyrics sparked Bush to partner with Goodwill Industries International for the #GiveItAway campaign to encourage donations of used clothing and goods.

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, collaborating with Matt Nathanson, the dB’s, Martin Johnson of Boys Like Girls, Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale and more.
In 2015, Bush will continue his PUT YOUR SOUL IN IT TOUR, beginning with appearances at the Ryman Auditorium (2/15), The Bluebird Cafe (2/26) and the Grand Ole Opry (3/6) in Nashville before heading overseas for select tour stops in Australia.

T. GRAHAM BROWN RETURNS

T. GRAHAM BROWN RETURNS WITH FOREVER CHANGED

SET MARKS HIS FIRST STUDIO ALBUM IN NINE YEARS

T. Graham Brown
  NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 27, 2015) – It’s been almost a decade since T. Graham Brown has released a new studio album, but that drought comes to an end today with the release of Forever Changed. The disc is released by Mansion Entertainment and distributed by Sony RED Distribution and Provident. The album is also available through Cracker Barrel Old Country Store. Brown co-produced the disc with Mark L. Carman.

In addition to Brown’s trademark blues styling, Forever Changed features no less than twelve of Brown’s contemporaries and fellow artists lending their talents to the album. Among the guest list includes Vince Gill, Leon Russell, Steve Cropper, The Oak Ridge Boys, and Jimmy Fortune. The disc has already made a little bit of history for the Georgia native by garnering him his first ever Grammy nomination – in the category of Best Gospel Roots Album. Brown and his wife Sheila will be traveling to Los Angeles for the February 8 Grammy festivities.

Brown – whose last studio disc was 2006’s The Present – is very excited for his fans to hear the new music. “It’s a neat record. I think it’s probably the best one I’ve ever made, and I’ve got a lot of friends singing on it. I picked out a batch of songs I liked, and it turned out exactly like I wanted it to. Then, it gets nominated for a Grammy, and I’ve never been nominated for one before, so I’m loving every minute of it.” The album’s first single, “He’ll Take Care Of You,” the collaboration with Vince Gill, is currently making an impact at both Country radio and Southern Gospel radio.

Brown was born in Georgia, and played in local bands throughout the 1970s, making the move to Nashville in the early 1980s. His talent came to the attention of Capitol Records executive Jim Fogelsong, who signed him to the label. His first single, “Drowning In Memories,” immediately connected with fans, landing in the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot Country Singles Chart, but the best was yet to come. His sophomore release, “I Tell It Like It Used To Be,” hit the Top-10, kicking off a series of hits that included “Hell and High Water,” “Darlene,” “Come As You Were,” and “Don’t Go Out,” a 1990 hit single that paired him with Tanya Tucker. In 1998, Brown charted with the personal “Wine Into Water,” a song that detailed his long and painful struggle with alcohol addiction. Brown re-cut the song on Forever Changed with Jimmy Fortune.

2015 marks three decades since Brown first hit the charts, and the singer will celebrate by taking his unique blend of Country and Blues on the road.

Kaitlyn Jackson Releases New Country Album

Rising Country Star and Former American Idol Contestant Kaitlyn Jackson Releases New Album

Rising country star and former American Idol Contestant Kaitlyn Jackson has released her new self-titled country album, available today on iTunes, Amazon and other online retailers. This album is highly anticipated by fans nationwide who witnessed the 16-year-old make it to the final Hollywood solo rounds during 2014’s season 13 of American Idol. 
This project, produced by Grammy-nominated Kent Wells, features 8 tracks all co-written by Jackson. Complete with upbeat songs about having fun with your girlfriends (“Break It Down”), staying true to yourself in the midst of love gone wrong (“I’d Rather Be Me”), and thanking God for his blessings no matter the size (“All The Little Things”), Kaitlyn’s album evokes the very best of her influences, which include Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift and Jo Dee Messina.  
“I have always loved the sincere stories that country songs tell,” says the Norwich, NY native who grew up singing alongside her father. “By revealing pieces of myself in my music as a songwriter, I hope that people will be able to connect with me as a person, as well as with my songs."  
With a voice and maturity well beyond her age, this brown-eyed girl next door is no stranger to the spotlight. Aside from being a high school honors student and class president, Kaitlyn has already opened for acts like Cole Swindell, Kristin Bush, Joe Nichols and Bryan White and has road-tripped to Nashville many times to write with hit songwriters like Marty Brown (George Strait) and Sarah Majors (Trisha Yearwood).  
“I’m so excited for the future and can’t wait to see where this new album takes me,” remarks Jackson.  
Kaitlyn’s infectious personality, coupled with the many years of performing under her belt and her unparalleled determination, make it very clear that she is well on her way to becoming one of the next leading ladies of country music.
