NASHVILLE, TN (March 31, 2015) – BBR Music Group/RED BOW Records' Craig Campbell, joined forces with Fight Colorectal Cancer (Fight CRC) and Bayer HealthCare on their March awareness campaign, One Million Strong, for the 3rd Annual Craig Campbell Celebrity Cornhole Challenge, which was held this past Sunday (3/29) in Nashville, TN. The event, hosted by GAC’s Nan Kelley, helped raise over $100,000 for colorectal cancer education, research and prevention, while honoring more than one million colorectal cancer survivors.
Brad Cummings from the band Blackjack Billy, was part of the winning team of the 3rd Annual Craig Campbell Celebrity Cornhole Challenge. The day wrapped with a One Million Strong march around Nashville’s Centennial Park, while Jerrod Niemann, Charlie Worsham and Campbell closed-out the day with special performances in the park.

Through One Million Strong events, Campbell met colon cancer survivor, Rose Hausmann, and the two proudly co-wrote the song “Stronger Than That” to support the Fight Colorectal Cancer awareness campaign. The singer-songwriter was joined by Hausmann on stage for a special duet of their impactful song.

Colorectal cancer is close to Campbell’s heart, as his father was diagnosed with the disease when Campbell was only 11-years-old, and passed away within a year. As a national spokesperson for the cause the talented artist is donating all proceeds from download sales of the song to Fight CRC, while Bayer HealthCare is giving Fight CRC $1 for each #StrongArmSelfie photo or brief video posted publicly to Twitter, Instagram, or Vine, up to a maximum of $25,000.
ABOUT CRAIG CAMPBELL:
Craig Campbell launched on to the Country music scene with the release of his self-titled debut album (2011) delivering the hits “Family Man,” “Fish,” and “When I Get It.” To date, he has logged four consecutive charted hits with over a billion radio airplay audience impressions and over a half million downloads. Acclaimed as one of the genre's most neo-traditionalist singers, his Top 15 breakout debut “Family Man” was featured on HBO’s True Blood and the top-selling fan-favorite “Fish” has tallied nearly 400,000 digital copies sold. Most recently, Campbell earned his first Top 10 smash with the infectious “Keep Them Kisses Comin’” from his sophomore album NEVER REGRET (2013) produced by Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band) and Matt Rovey (CCMA Album Of The Year Producer). The gifted songwriter co-penned six of the tracks on the twelve-song project. Prior to landing his first record deal, the Lyons, GA native spent time on the road playing keyboard for both Tracy Byrd and Luke Bryan - shows that inspired him nightly. He was soon discovered while playing a regular gig at the downtown Nashville honky-tonk, The Stage. Campbell has been playing his own headlining shows nationwide, with regular performances at the Grand Ole Opry and shared the stage with artists such as Alan Jackson, The Band Perry, Jerrod Niemann and Justin Moore. Recently signing to BBR Music Group’s RED BOW Records roster and Magic Mustang Music arm for publishing, the talented singer will be releasing a new single in early 2015.

Bob Dylan und Johnny Cash in Nashville

Bob Dylan und Johnny Cash in Nashville

Bob Dylan und seine Plattenaufnahmen im Nashville der 60er Jahre stehen im Mittelpunkt einer neuen großen Ausstellung ebenfalls in der „Music City“, die noch bis Ende 2016 läuft. Es geht auch um Dylans Studioband Nashville Cats und die Zusammenarbeit beider mit Johnny Cash. 

Die Ausstellung Dylan, Cash And The Nashville Cats: A New Music City in der Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum beleuchtet den großen Einfluss Nashvilles auf Bob Dylan seit 1965 und 1966, als er dort das Doppel-Album Blonde on Blonde mit der Studiomusiker-Formation The Nashville Cats aufnahm. Auch geht es um die Zusammenarbeit Dylans mit Johnny Cash und um dessen legendäre The Johnny Cash Show von 1969 bis 1971 im ABC-Fernseh-Network.

Die Ausstellung untersucht zudem weitere Einspielungen der Nashville Cats aus der Epoche mit Musiklegenden wie Joan Baez, J.J. Cale, The Byrds, Leonard Cohen, Paul McCartney, Linda Ronstadt, Simon & Garfunkel und Neil Young. Diese Aufnahmen leiteten in den 1960er- und 70er-Jahren einen Wandel ein: War Nashville vorher nur die Hauptstadt der Country Music, öffnete sich die Stadt seitdem auch anderen Musikstilen. Mit Folk, Rock und Pop wurde Nashville so zur heutigen „Music City“. Was für den Film Hollywood, ist für die Musik Nashville.

Zu den Perlen der Ausstellung zählen Musikinstrumente und Kostüme, das handgeschriebene Manuskript des Songs Wanted Man von Bob Dylan, den Cash im Jahr 1969 für sein Album Johnny Cash at San Quentin aufnahm, sowie Clips der Johnny Cash Show. Der Eintritt zur Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum, der die Sonderausstellung mit umfasst, kostet 24,95 Dollar. Kinder von 6 bis 12 Jahren zahlen 14,95 Dollar. Das Museum ist täglich von 9.00 bis 17.00 Uhr geöffnet.

Back to the Roots …

Back to the Roots …

hieß es am 6. Februar im Headquarter der Vienna Globetrampers in Wien. Es gab wieder eine Premiere, diesmal mit dem Trio MOCKINGBIRDS. Leider hat diese Band keine Website.

Bandleader Peter Trenkler (Ak. Git., Voc., Banjo, Kazoo) kenne ich noch aus der Zeit als er vor ca. 25 Jahren mit Ray Bamboschek (Dobro) als Duo schon unter diesem Namen auftrat. Nach Ray’s Unfall startete er mit Martin (E-Baß) im Jahr 2000 neu durch. Der dritte Mann im Bunde heißt Hans (Fiddle, Banjo, Trommel)) und begleitet das Duo fallweise. Sowohl Peter als auch Hans sind außerdem in einer klassischen Musikgruppe aktiv.

Wie meine Überschrift schon verrät bestand ihr Programm aus lauter altbekannten Titeln der Genres Country, Bluegrass, Blues, Folk. Das Repertoire reichte zurück bis 1890 (Wabash Cannonball), 1905 (Nobody / Hank Williams), 1930 (Mule Skinner Blues / Jimmie Rodgers), 1937 (Home on the range / Gene Autry), um nur einiges zu nennen. Besonders gut gefiel mir >Wheeping willow tree< (Carter Family), >Irene good night< (Gordon Jenkins), >Wayside tavern< (Peter Rowan) und >Mr. Bojangles< (J.J.Walker).

Natürlich durfte auch Johnny Cash nicht fehlen – diese Songs liegen Peter besonders gut – und davon u. a. der >Hef'n Blues< (1955) mit sehr gutem deutschen Text. Noch zwei deutschsprachige Ausflüge gingen zu Ostbahn Kurti (Ka Idee) und Hermann Leopoldi (Schnucki, ach Schnucki). Letzteres wurde sehr bekannt durch die >Worried Men Skiffle Group<, die es nach mehr als 50jährigem musikalischem Wirken aus gesundheitlichen Gründen leider nicht mehr gibt.

Als Zugabe hörten wir >When the circle be unbroken<. Es befremdet mich immer wieder, wenn bei diesem traurigen Lied Menschen mitklatschen und tanzen, das passt eigentlich nicht und ich nehme mal an, dass diese den Text nicht verstehen. Trotzdem war es ein sehr netter Abend der viele Erinnerungen wach rief.
