Lydia Rogers added, "Our sincere thanks go out to T Bone--not only has he helped us grow musically, but he has also provided us with loads of advice about how to maintain our artistic integrity in a world that is pulling us in a million different directions. We're humbled and privileged to call him a friend."

Interview with Chase Rice
CL: I’m Christian Lamitschka and today I present you Chase Rice. Chase, welcome to the show!
CR: I appreciate it, thanks very much.
CL: Chase, most Americans know you, but the European fans might be hearing about you for the first time. Can you please introduce yourself to them, what type of music you’re playing and show us a little bit about your personality?
CR: Yes, my name is Chase Rice. I do a kind of a country rock thing. We got a new EP coming out, it’s called “Country Is Me.” It will be coming out March 8 on iTunes. I really love music. I love doing it. You might know me from the TV Show “Survivor.” I was on “Survivor-Nicaragua.” Now, it’s just all about music. I’m releasing an EP and doing shows. I’m really looking forward to getting the music out there.
CL: Chase, you have a new single out there, called “Buzz Back”. Please tell us something about this song and what inspired you to pick up this song.
CR: I didn’t pick up this song; I wrote the song. It’s called “Buzz Back.” I wrote it with Jesse Rice and Brian Kelley. It’s just a song about getting rid of a hangover pretty much. In the second verse, it talks about other ways to get your buzz back. Do you get it back by going out and having some drinks or do you get a buzz when you get a new girlfriend? Basically, it asks what do you do to get that everyday buzz. It’s got that cool feeling.
CL: Chase, what brought you to country music?
CR: I’ve been huge fan of country music my whole life growing up listening to Garth Brooks and Chris LeDoux. I’m a big Kenny Chesney fan as well. I started playing guitar my sophomore year in college just for fun. In my junior year, my dad passed away, so the only way to deal with that was to write a song about it. And I wrote that song, then another song, then another. People were liking what I was doing, so I just continued to do it. I never thought it would be a career, but right now it’s going well. This new EP coming out is going to be a real big for me.
CL: What’s more fun, to be an artist or a songwriter.
CR: Well I’m doing both and I’m having a blast right now.

2011 JÄGERMEISTER COUNTRY TOUR With Dierks Bentley, Josh Thompson and Miss Willie Brown Continues To Trek Across The Country
NASHVILLE, TN. – March 24, 2011 – Columbia Nashville’s Josh Thompson is making a slight detour on the JÄGERMEISTER COUNTRY TOUR for a couple of national TV appearances next week. Thompson will stop by Fox & Friends on Monday, March 28 to perform his current single and break-up anthem “Won’t Be Lonely Long.” He’ll also swing by Better TV for a performance and interview, set to air on Monday, April 4.
“Being on the Jager tour, we don’t really have a lot of early morning wake-up calls…so, I’ll need to prepare myself for that,” laughs Thompson. “We’re having a blast on the road. I’ve been touring so much over the past couple of years, it’s definitely become my second home, but there is no place else I’d rather be right now. The fans are awesome and the Jager isn’t so bad either.”
Thompson kicked off the 2011 JÄGERMEISTER COUNTRY TOUR with Dierks Bentley on March 17. The 30-city tour will make stops in Poughkeepsie, NY, Reading, PA and Westbury, NY this weekend, and features new duo Miss Willie Brown.

Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of
The Andy Griffith Show
DANCE 'TIL YOUR STOCKINGS ARE HOT AND RAVELIN'
Digital Release Set for March 29
Saguaro Road Records
Nashville, TN (March 24, 2011 ) -- Grammy-nominated bluegrass band The Grascals pay tribute to one of America's most-beloved television programs, The Andy Griffith Show, with the release their newest disc, DANCE 'TIL YOUR STOCKINGS ARE HOT AND RAVELIN' (A Tribute To The Music of the Andy Griffith Show). Available digitally via BluGrascal Records/Saguaro Road Records on March 29 and via CD on June 7, the seven-song EP features tunes that were an integral and humorous part of the show's eight-year run. The disc's release coincides with The Andy Griffith Show's celebration of its 50th anniversary.
DANCE includes one original song written and recorded in the spirit of the sweetly-comical series, "Boy, Giraffes Are Selfish," alongside iconic tracks such as "Dooley," "Boil Them Cabbage Down," "Stay All Night (Stay A Little Longer)," "Ol' Joe Clark," "Leaning On The Everlasting Arms" and "Mayberry's Finest Theme."
THE GRASCALS' guitarist, Terry Eldredge, is a longtime fan of the show and confesses to have seen each episode numerous times. "The Andy Griffith Show had a moral lesson that every human being should live by," Eldredge comments. "It's an honor and privilege to be associated with the best TV show ever made. It was - and still is - awesome family entertainment."
"The Andy Griffith show, The Grascals, and Bluegrass music is a quintessential American combination and The Grascals have given us another great listen," says Saguaro Road / Time Life Senior VP Retail Mike Jason.
The Grascals launched their career in 2004, and have become one of the most-lauded Bluegrass bands of their era. Accolades abound and include: SPBGMA's 2011 Instrumental Group of the Year, SPBGMA's 2010 Bluegrass Band of the Year, SPBGMA's 2009 Album of the Year and IBMA's (2007, 2006) Entertainer of the Year. The band's unique sound has also earned two of their previous releases (THE GRASCALS and LONG LIST OF HEARTACHES) Grammy® nominations in 2005 and 2006, respectively.

|Annette Humpe erhält ECHO für Lebenswerk Insgesamt konnte sie sich an diesem Abend über drei Auszeichnungen freuen|
Berlin, 24.03.2011 / Heute Abend erhielt die Songschreiberin, Sängerin und Produzentin Annette Humpe einen ECHO für ihr Lebenswerk. Sie steht damit in einer Reihe mit so erfolgreichen Künstlern wie z.B. James Last, Udo Lindenbeg und Hildegard Knef. Mit dieser bedeutenden Auszeichnung ehrte die Jury die einflussreichste deutsche Popmusikerin der letzten drei Jahrzehnte. Sie hat mit ihrer Arbeit Maßstäbe gesetzt und tut das bis heute.
Insgesamt wurde Annette Humpe an diesem Abend mit drei ECHO Awards ausgezeichnet. Die anderen beiden erhielt sie in ihrer Eigenschaft als weibliche Hälfte des Erfolgsduos Ich + Ich an der Seite von Adel Tawil. Gemeinsam gewannen sie jeweils eine Trophäe in den Kategorien „Gruppe national Rock/Pop“ und „Erfolgreichster Live-Act national“.
Annette Humpe wird 1950 geboren und geht nach Abbruch ihres Klavierstudiums an der Kölner Musikhochschule nach Berlin. Dort gründet sie mit ihrer Schwester Inga Humpe zunächst die Neonbabies, bis sie mit Ideal 1981 den Durchbruch schafft und über eine Million Einheiten verkauft. Zwei Jahre später verabschiedet sich Annette Humpe von der Bühne und arbeitet von nun an als Produzentin und Songschreiberin, unter anderem mit DÖF, Rio Reiser, den Prinzen, Lucilectric und Udo Lindenberg.
2004 tut sich Annette Humpe musikalisch mit dem Berliner Sänger Adel Tawil zusammen. Gemeinsam veröffentlichen sie als Ich + Ich drei Hit-Alben und werden zu einer der erfolgreichsten deutschen Bands aller Zeiten. Im Sommer 2010 geben beide bekannt, eine Kreativpause einlegen zu wollen.
Die aktuelle Produktion von Annette Humpe ist das im Januar erschienene Album „Küssen kann man nicht alleine“ von Max Raabe.
Zur Feier des Tages sang Annette Humpe heute Abend auf der ECHO-Bühne gemeinsam mit Adel Tawil, Max Raabe und Selig den alten Ideal-Song „Ich steh auf Berlin“. Für alle, die den Auftritt verpasst haben, gibt es den Track als Download exklusiv bei iTunes.
Tom Bohne, Senior Vice President UNIVERSAL MUSIC GmbH: „Annette ist einfach großartig. Was sie anfasst, wird zu etwas ganz Besonderem, fast immer auch zu etwas sehr Erfolgreichem. Ihr musikalisches Gespür und ihre Kreativität reichen für mehr als einen Künstler. Gut für alle, die das Glück haben, mit ihr arbeiten zu dürfen. Zu diesen Glücklichen zähle ich mich auch selbst. Vielen Dank und herzlichen Glückwunsch, Annette!“
Frank Briegmann, President UNIVERSAL MUSIC Deutschland, Österreich, Schweiz und Deutsche Grammophon: „Ich gratuliere Annette auf das Herzlichste zu dieser großartigen und mehr als verdienten Auszeichnung. Sie gehört für mich zu den bedeutendsten Persönlichkeiten der deutschen Popmusik. Sie ist immer am Nerv der Zeit, ist Trends nicht hinterhergelaufen, sondern hat sie gesetzt. Ich schätze die Zusammenarbeit mit Annette sehr, wünsche ihr beruflich und persönlich alles Gute und freue mich auf die kommenden, gemeinsamen Projekte.“
