Neal McCoy Returns to GAC

Neal McCoy Returns to the Sales Floor on GAC’s “Day Jobs” Oct. 16th
The Multi-Platinum Country Singer Reflects on Early Days as Women’s Shoe Salesman
Neal McCoy on GAC's 'Day Jobs'Nashville, TN (October 13, 2011) – Before two-time Entertainer of the Year and platinum singer, Neal McCoy, made it big in country music with eleven career albums, three of them platinum and one gold, and over 25 charted singles with five #1’s, amongst numerous other accolades to his name, the entertainer got his start on another stage performing to a much different crowd. Returning for a day in his previously held role as a Longview, TX based shoe salesman, specializing in women’s footwear, Neal McCoy reflects on his pre-country entertainer nine-to-five lifestyle in Day Jobs, airing on Great American Country (GAC) October 16th, at 8:00pm EST/7:00pm CST. 
In Day Jobs, many of today’s top country stars step back in time, putting in a full day’s work at a job they held before making it big. Each one-hour episode will follow three stars as they work a shift in a variety of previously held jobs. In the process, they will discover if they still have what it takes and at the same time, come to realize just how much those early jobs helped shape their lives today.
Taking a glance back from his present day career, to his days as a young singer living in Longview, TX, McCoy supported the beginning stages of his dreams of being an entertainer by finding additional work in a local department store selling women’s shoes, a job he would hold for three years. It was in this role that the aspiring entertainer first came into contact with the general public. "It's good grooming for you. In the music business, you have to deal with different folks every day, different personalities all the time.," McCoy notes.
And even in his early days, the relentless entertainer never let his optimistic and charismatic persona slip, telling himself, "I'm gonna try to win them over. I want them to like me and I’m gonna work until they are entertained,” a motivational policy that McCoy would command from his live performances all throughout his long and illustrious career, a career that would produce such country hits as “Wink,” “The Shake,” and his current single “A-OK,” available at all digital retailers Oct. 18th, 2011.
In this episode of Day Jobs, you’ll see Neal McCoy bring that determination and spirit back to the sales floor when he literally goes toe to toe with co-worker and top Belk department store women’s shoe salesmen, Joe, to see who will be the top dog when the store doors close.
Although McCoy has toured thousands of miles and entertained thousands of people throughout the years, returning to the sales floor granted McCoy yet another unique experience, the chance to glance back at the life he once lived, as well as the ability to look into the life that may have been. But whatever the turnout of the early days of his career may or may not have been, McCoy remains determined that his life always belonged in music, and his heart, forever the heart of an entertainer working with people. Told best in his own words, McCoy explains, “I'd probably be in some job working with the public. I'm a people person, and if I wasn't singing for a living, I'd still find a way to sing.”
Try it on for yourself this Sunday as Neal McCoy brings his charismatic presence and witty charm back to the sales floor on GAC’s Day Jobs.

BILLY DEAN CO-STARS IN 'DECISION'

BILLY DEAN CO-STARS IN 'DECISION' PREMIERING THIS SUNDAY ON THE GOSPEL MUSIC CHANNEL

Dean Stars Opposite Four-time Dove Award-winning Singer Natalie Grant

Nashville, Tenn. (October 13, 2011) – This weekend, GRAMMY Award-winning country music star Billy Dean is set to appear on television screens coast-to-coast, as he stars in the world-premiere of the Gospel Music Channel (GMC) faith-based made-for-TV film, 'Decision.'

'Decision' premieres this Sunday, October 16, with Dean co-starring alongside four-time Dove Award-winning singer, Natalie Grant.

In the film, shot in Kingston Springs, TN, just outside of Nashville, Dean plays the role of Grant’s fireman-husband,  who is killed in a car accident after falling asleep at the wheel, plunging his wife into hard times as she is left to raise their teenage son alone.

Earlier this year, in an interview with Country Weekly Magazine, Dean explained the film noting, "It's a great story about parenting and faith, about when you reach the age of being a teenager.  Ultimately, you have all the basics your parents have given you, and at some point you have to start making decisions in your life. It's about that transitional period from when your parents make you do things and punish you when you don't, to taking ownership and responsibility for your own life and making the smart decisions based on your upbringing."

Starring in 'Decision' isn’t Dean’s first acting role.  He co-starred with Crystal Bernard in the 1999 TV movie, 'A Face to Kill' and with Dolly Parton in 'Blue Valley Songbird' that same year.

COUNTRY SOUNDS OF THE '50s

Vin Bruce might not be a familiar name but he played a major role in Cajun recording history and earned the name “King of Cajun Music”. He was the first Cajun to be marketed to a mass public having been signed to a major label, Columbia Records, and the first to record with Nashville session musicians.

On a geographical basis Vin Bruce was considered more a hillbilly artist rather than a Cajun as he hailed from Lafourche Parish, in south-east Louisiana, rather than the more recognised Cajun area that stretched from Lafayette to Lake Charles. Consequently he sang in Cajun and English, did not feature an accordion  and played dances and honky-tonks. His records, produced by Don Law, clearly mixed the two music’s, with pickers like Chet Atkins, Owen Bradley and Grady Martin providing accompaniment not associated with Cajun recordings. And, as a major label artist, recordings like Dans La Louisianne, Fille de la Ville, My Mama Said and Sweet Love were given major promotion, earning Bruce a spot on the Grand Ole Opry and attention from the likes of Ernest Tubb and Hank Williams. (Williams even invited Bruce to play at his public wedding ceremony to Billie Jean Jones in New Orleans). But his days with Columbia were short-lived due to the advent of rock ‘n’ roll which terminated, or slowed down, so many other country music careers.

This 20 track collection brings together all of Vin Bruce’s Columbia recordings, including a couple of unreleased items, and presents an entertaining variant of early ‘50s honky-tonk. Michael Hunt provides a detailed biography on an artist rarely found in the country music reference books and, completing the accompanying booklet’s 34 pages, there’s also rare photographs and a discography.

(Bear Family BCD 16525 AH)

Warner MacPherson (later to be known as Warner Mack thanks to an  accidentally misspelling on a record label!) was one of those rare country artists to have been born in Nashville although he grew up in Vicksburg, Mississippi. Although he’s best known for a couple of dozen country hits in the 1960s and ‘70s - headlined by such as The Bridge Washed Out and Sittin’ On A Rock (Crying In A Creek) – he began recording in the ‘50s with his aim set firmly towards rockabilly. Now that early stage of his career is brought together in this 38 track collection - the latest release in Bear Family's "Gonna Shake This Shack Tonight" series - comprising recordings made for Delta, Decca, Scarlet and Top Rank alongside a couple of other rarities.

His rockabilly intentions are made clear with the two items for Delta, covers of Baby Let’s Play House and Ubangi Stomp, both following closely the originals made by Elvis Presley and Warren Smith respectively. He began his first association (and the change of name) with Decca in 1957 where such originals as Is It Wrong (For Loving You), which enjoyed country and pop chart success, and Roc-A-Chicka established his reputation as a songwriter. But it was a short-lived association as Mack felt that Decca “weren’t pushing my records at the time and country was as dead as a doornail in 1959”. So one-off, more country orientated, releases followed on independents Scarlet (My Love For You c/w Someone, Somewhere) and Top Rank (Prison Of Love c/w I’ll Run Back To You) before returning to Decca and the beginning of his country chart run.

Also featured on this cd are advertising spots for the Mary Carter paint company and a live radio recording of Honky Tonk Song in which Warner Mack shares vocal credits with Dale Potter. This artist’s part in creating the Nashville Sound (and his subsequent career) is told in the cd’s accompanying 42 page booklet by Martin Hawkins, with his text accompanied by rare photographs and discography.
