Awards Show, and this year we have been rewarded by Rhonda accepting our invitation to be our featured artist for October 6, 2011 at the Al Menah’s Shriner’s Temple. The excitement of knowing that we will be entertained by one of country and bluegrass music’s premier superstars is great news for all of our R.O.P.E. members, and for her fans.



Rhonda & The Rage are the most celebrated band in bluegrass with over seventy awards in such a short period of time. She has been honored with the coveted Entertainer of the Year Award from the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA), and has won the IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year Award seven consecutive times.



In 2001 Rhonda signed a high-profile endorsement contract with Martha White baking products to follow in the footsteps of the company’s first sponsored bluegrass icons, Flatt and Scruggs. She carries the torch of Martha White as far and wide as anyone could have ever envisioned. When you see the Red, White, and Blue Martha White bus roll into every show, you can be assured that Martha White products are being supported by the beautiful and talented First Lady of Bluegrass.



SPEEDWAYCLUBRaceWeekEvent5302010COCACOLA6000511She has surrounded herself with one of bluegrass’s elite bands. Loyalty and super musicians make up The Rage, and the front and center of every show is occupied by the talented lady that brings a new meaning to bluegrass. The band is a special blend of musicians who enjoy who they work for, and what they do to make her the superstar that she is, and Rhonda understands how fortunate she is to have this great grouping of friends and musicians surrounding her efforts.

CMA ANNOUNCES 2011 BROADCAST AWARDS FINALISTS
The JaneDear girls Make Announcement Live from Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium

NASHVILLE – Final nominees for the nation’s top Country radio stations and broadcast personalities were delivered to Country Radio today, when the JaneDear girls revealed the 2011 CMA Broadcast Personality and Radio Station of the Year finalists live from Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. The announcements were carried live to Country radio stations by CMA’s official radio partner Premiere Radio Networks.

The winners will be notified in mid-October and will be acknowledged at “The 45th Annual CMA Awards,” to be held Wednesday, Nov. 9 (8:00-11:00 PM/ET) and broadcast live by the ABC Television Network from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood return to host “Country Music’s Biggest Night” for a fourth year.

The CMA Broadcast Awards finalists were revealed at a press conference today where select CMA Awards finalists were also announced by Jerrod Niemann and Thompson Square.  Additional CMA Award final nominees were announced this morning on ABC’s “Good Morning America” by The Band Perry and Jake Owen.  

As always, the National Broadcast Personality of the Year category is filled with familiar faces. Two-time CMA National Broadcast Personality of the Year nominee and 2009 winner, Kix Brooks of “American Country Countdown,” is back in the running with competition from Big D & Bubba and Lia Knight. Big D & Bubba were also nominated for the award in 2002 and 2007. “The Lia Show” has been nominated five times, and Knight took home the trophy in 2005 and 2007.

Five finalists are selected for CMA Broadcast Personality and CMA Radio Station of the Year in four categories: small, medium, large, and major market. The categories are established by market size based on population as ranked by Arbitron. Entries for Broadcast Personality of the Year are judged on aircheck, ratings, community involvement, and biographical information. Candidates for Station of the Year are judged on airchecks, ratings history, community involvement, and format leadership.

Three finalists are selected for National Broadcast Personality of the Year. To be eligible, candidates must be syndicated, short-form, hub voice-tracking, and satellite personalities heard in at least three markets with a minimum of 40 shows per year.

CMA members who are full-time, on-air personalities and CMA member radio stations in the United States and Canada were eligible to enter. The entries are judged by a panel of distinguished broadcast professionals, representing all market sizes and regions.

An aggregate score of the first round of judging and the second round, which is done by a different panel of judges, determines the winners. The international accounting firm of Deloitte & Touche LLP tabulates scoring by the judges. CMA Broadcast Award winners are not eligible to enter in consecutive years; therefore, those who received trophies in 2010 were not eligible in 2011.

NASHVILLE – Topping the list of final nominees are four artists with five nominations each for “The 45th Annual CMA Awards” including Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, and Taylor Swift. Right on their heels are The Band Perry and Zac Brown Band, who each received four nominations as a group while individual members Kimberly Perry (of The Band Perry), Coy Bowles and Zac Brown (of Zac Brown Band) each earned a solo nod as a songwriter.

“’Country Music’s Biggest Night(tm)’ is shaping up to be a tight race with an outstanding group of new and established nominees topping the list,” said Steve Moore, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “With no clear frontrunner there will be a heightened level of excitement and anticipation for the CMA Awards in November.”
“The 45th Annual CMA Awards” will be hosted for the fourth time by Paisley and Carrie Underwood and broadcast live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Wednesday, Nov. 9 (8:00-11:00 PM/ET) on the ABC Television Network.
For the sixth year, the announcement of the final nominees in five of the 12 CMA Awards categories was made live on ABC News’ “Good Morning America” with The Band Perry and Jake Owen delivering the news from the heart of New York City’s Times Square. Finalists in the other seven categories were announced by Jerrod Niemann and CMA Vocal Duo and New Artist of the Year nominees Thompson Square from the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, which was home to the first broadcast of the CMA Awards in 1968.
Aldean received first-time nominations in five categories in 2011 including Entertainer; Male Vocalist; Album for My Kinda Party, produced by Michael Knox; and Single and Musical Event of the Year for “Don’t You Wanna Stay” with Kelly Clarkson, also produced by Knox. Aldean has two prior nominations including the Horizon Award in 2007 and in 2008 when the category changed names to CMA New Artist of the Year. Clarkson was last nominated in 2007 for Musical Event of the Year with Reba McEntire for “Because of You.”
Aldean’s golden touch in 2011 extended to songwriters Brantley Gilbert and Colt Ford, who penned Aldean’s “Dirt Road Anthem,” nominated for Song of the Year.
CMA’s reigning Entertainer of the Year, Paisley received five nominations for Entertainer; Male Vocalist; Album for This is Country Music, which was produced by Frank Rogers; Musical Event and Music Video of the Year for “Old Alabama,” featuring Alabama and directed by Jim Shea. Paisley’s nominations keep him in the No. 3 spot for the most career nominations in CMA Awards history. He has been nominated every year since 2000 and has amassed an incredible 57 career nominations to date. Only George Strait (81) and Alan Jackson (80) have more. With their two nominations Alabama has 41 career nods. The supergroup has won nine CMA Awards including three for Entertainer of the Year. The group received its last nomination in 2004 in the Vocal Group of the Year category.
CMA’s current Male Vocalist, Shelton also received five nominations including Entertainer; Male Vocalist; Album for All About Tonight, produced by Scott Hendricks; and Single (produced by Hendricks) and Music Video of the Year for “Honey Bee,” directed by Trey Fanjoy.    
Swift also received five nominations including Entertainer; Female Vocalist; Album for Speak Now, which was produced by Swift and Nathan Chapman; Music Video for “Mean,” which was directed by Declan Whitebloom; and Song of the Year for “Mean,” written by Swift, her first nomination as a songwriter.

The Band Perry received their first nomination in 2010 and they are back in 2011 with four nominations including Vocal Group; New Artist; Single for “If I Die Young,” produced by Paul Worley; and Music Video of the Year for “If I Die Young,” directed by David McClister.

Zac Brown Band garnered four nominations for Vocal Group; Album for You Get What You Give, produced by Keith Stegall and Zac Brown; Musical Event for “As She’s Walking Away” with Alan Jackson; and Single of the Year for “Colder Weather,” produced by Stegall and Brown. Additionally, bandmates Brown and Coy Bowles each received a nomination for Song of the Year for writing “Colder Weather” with Wyatt Durrette and Levi Lowrey. Brown could also pick up an additional two trophies for producing the nominated Album and Single of the Year.
Rounding out the Entertainer of the Year category with Aldean, Paisley, Shelton, and Swift is Keith Urban, who won the trophy in 2005. Urban is also nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year, which he has won three times (2004, 2005, and 2006).
Four-time CMA Entertainer of the Year Kenny Chesney received three nominations including Male Vocalist; Musical Event and Music Video of the Year for “You and Tequila” featuring Grace Potter and directed by Shaun Silva. Matraca Berg and Deana Carter each received a nomination for Song of the Year for penning the No. 1 hit. These are Potter’s first CMA Awards nominations.
Sara Evans, who received her last CMA Awards nomination in 2006, was nominated for Female Vocalist and Single of the Year for “A Little Bit Stronger,” produced by Tony Brown. Brown leads the list of nominees among non-performers with 39 career nominations.
CMA Awards co-host Carrie Underwood received her sixth nomination for Female Vocalist in 2011. Underwood won Female Vocalist of the Year in 2006, 2007, and 2008. If Underwood wins the Female Vocalist of the Year trophy again, it will tie her with Martina McBride (1999, 2002-2004) and Reba McEntire (1984-1987) for most wins in this category. McBride is nominated in the category again in 2011, with Evans, reigning Female Vocalist Miranda Lambert, and Swift.  
Lambert received a second nomination along with Sheryl Crow and Country royalty, Loretta Lynn for Musical Event of the Year for their performance of the classic “Coal Miner’s Daughter.” The song, which tells the story of Lynn’s humble beginnings, was nominated for Song of the Year in 1971. The subsequent soundtrack for the movie by the same title won CMA Album of the Year honors in 1980. Lynn, who was CMA’s first Female Vocalist of the Year in 1967 and first female Entertainer of the Year in 1972, received her last CMA Awards nomination in 1994 for Musical Event of the Year with Dolly Parton and Tammy Wynette for “Silver Thread and Golden Needles.”

"Wir Sind Am Leben"
VÖ: 09.09.2011

Das Leben ist vertrackt und ungerecht. Gäbe es nicht hier und da Lichtblicke, die einen zurück auf den Boden bringen, müsste die Sonne Überstunden leisten.

Doch wie steht es um die Sonne? Die kann man hierzulande abschreiben. Der Sommer war ja wohl nichts. Ein Glück, dass es zuverlässigere Quellen für die innere Erbauung gibt.

„Wir sind am Leben“ heißt die neue Single von Rosenstolz, die am 9. September veröffentlicht wird. Und man kann, gerade in diesen miesen verregneten Sommertagen behaupten, dass es sich genau um die akustische Punktlandung handelt, nach der sich geplagte Seelen sehnen.

Es ist der Soundtrack zur dritten Dekade des Berliner Erfolgsduos. Und bereits jetzt hat „Wir sind am Leben“ die erfolgreichste Radio-Premiere eines Rosenstolz-Songs in der zwanzigjährigen Historie des Berliner Duos hingelegt und ist inzwischen bereits in den Top 5 der Airplay Charts zu finden. Eine Fanhymne, die es in sich hat. Ein Appetithappen auf das kommende Rosenstolz-Album, das auf Amazon für rekordverdächtige Vorbestellungen sorgt. Ein Album, ein Wagnis und doch ganz Rosenstolz. Das wird spannend.

Spannend und farbenfroh ist auch die Single „Wir sind am Leben“, die als 5-Track Maxi erscheint.
Mit „Gott geht heut ohne mein Gebet in sein Bett“ erscheint ein Bonus-Track, der nicht auf dem Album sein wird. Der Inhalt erzählt augenzwinkernd von einem Höhenflug der besonderen Art.

"Irgendwo in Berlin", als Instrumental-Version mit großem Orchester eingespielt, transportiert große Emotionen. Der Song ist eine Hommage an die Stadt aller Städte: Berlin.
Zu diesem Lied haben sich Rosenstolz eine Besonderheit ausgedacht und ein sehr emotionales Mini-Musical kreiert, das allerdings erst mit der Veröffentlichung ihres neuen Albums am 23.09. erscheinen wird.

Für zwei Single-Remixe konnten Rosenstolz den spannenden Oliver Koletzki und die wunderbaren wie frechen Disco Boys gewinnen.

Das hochemotionale Video zur Single läuft bereits erfolgreich auf allen Videoportalen sowie im Musikfernsehen. Für die Darstellung der Hauptakteurin, die sich in Rückblenden an ihr Leben erinnert, konnten Rosenstolz die wunderbare Schauspielerin Katrin Sass („Good Bye, Lenin!“, „Polizeiruf 110“) gewinnen.
„Ein absoluter Glücksfall und eine Traumbesetzung für uns. Wir verehren Katrin sehr“, erklärt Peter Plate.

Schön, dass Rosenstolz zur bewährten Stärke zurück fanden. Und es ist schön, dass sie wieder strahlen können. Wer braucht da noch einen Sommer?
