BLAKE SHELTON INVITES KENNY LOGGINS FOR CMA AWARDS

BLAKE SHELTON INVITES KENNY LOGGINS TO JOIN HIS PERFORMANCE OF “FOOTLOOSE” AS THE OPENING SONG ON “THE 45th ANNUAL CMA AWARDS”
NASHVILLE – Reigning CMA Male Vocalist of the Year Blake Shelton has invited legendary singer/songwriter Kenny Loggins to join him during a performance of the classic hit “Footloose” as the opening song for “The 45th Annual CMA Awards.”

“The 45th Annual CMA Awards,” hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, airs live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Wednesday, Nov. 9 (8:00-11:00 PM/ET) on the ABC Television Network. Previously announced performers for “Country Music’s Biggest Night(tm)” include Jason Aldean, The Band Perry, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Sara Evans, Faith Hill, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride, Scotty McCreery, Sugarland, Taylor Swift, Thompson Square, Keith Urban, Chris Young, and Zac Brown Band, plus Kenny Chesney and Grace Potter singing their hit collaboration “You and Tequila;” Vince Gill, Paisley, and Urban performing a tribute to Glen Campbell; Rascal Flatts and Natasha Bedingfield singing their current hit duet “Easy;” Lionel Richie performing select duets with Little Big Town, Rascal Flatts, and Darius Rucker; and co-hosts Paisley and Underwood in their first live televised-performance of their No. 1 song “Remind Me.”    

Written by Loggins and Dean Pitchford as the title song for the motion picture of the same name, “Footloose” was a No. 1 smash hit for Loggins for three weeks in 1984. With the remake of the movie currently in theaters, Shelton is dancing up the charts with his version of the song.  

Loggins has built a successful, decades-spanning career on the foundation of his songs. He first received national attention as part of the duo Loggins & Messina with Jim Messina, achieving hits such as “Your Mama Don’t Dance” and selling more than 16 million albums. As a songwriter, he wrote or co-wrote such classics as “Danny’s Song” (a Top 10 hit on both the Billboard Country and Hot 100 charts for Anne Murray in 1972), “A Love Song” (also a Top 10 hit on the Billboard Country Singles chart for Murray in 1974), and “What A Fool Believes” (which hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1979 for co-writer Michael McDonald’s band The Doobie Brothers). As a solo artist, Loggins wrote and/or recorded such favorites as “Whenever I Call You ‘Friend’” (a duet with Stevie Nicks), “This is It,” “I’m Alright,” “Heart to Heart,” “Meet Me Halfway,” “Danger Zone,” “Conviction of the Heart,” “For the First Time,” “House at Pooh Corner,” and more.

Shelton received five CMA Awards nominations this year including Entertainer; Male Vocalist; Album for All About Tonight; and Single and Music Video of the Year, both for “Honey Bee.” This feat tied him with Aldean, Paisley, and Swift as the artists who received the most CMA Awards nominations in 2011. This is the first year that Shelton has been nominated in the Entertainer and Album of the Year categories.  He has won two CMA Awards thus far in his career. In addition to Male Vocalist, he also won Musical Event of the Year in 2010 for his performance of “Hillbilly Bone” with Trace Adkins. Shelton’s current album is Red River Blue, featuring the Platinum-certified digital single “Honey Bee” and his fifth consecutive No. 1 hit “God Gave Me You.” In total, Shelton has racked up 10 No. 1 hits.

The special will be shot in high definition and broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC’s selected HDTV format, with 5.1 channel surround sound.

Guy Penrod Brings "More Power To Ya"

November 2, 2011 - Guy Penrod brings his brand new Country single, "More Power To Ya" directly to Country fans at the Grand Ole Opry on Friday, November 11.  The Veteran's Day performance is his debut appearance at the Opry as a solo artist; he will be accompanied by musicians Jason Ahlbrandt and Jonathan Crone along with the Opry Band.  The show kicks off at 7 p.m. (CT), and will be held at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium, known worldwide as "The Mother Church of CountryMusic." Fans can also listen online at www.wsmonline.com.

The evening is an important one for Guy, who shares the bill with one of his Country music heroes, Charley Pride.  "I've got his GREATEST HITS CD playing in my truck right now," Penrod says. It is also Veteran's Day, and Guy understands what an important day that is for those who have served our nation.  "My Dad was an Air Force veteran who served in Korea," Penrod states.  "He has a military marker at his grave, and I have the flag from his funeral hanging in my home.  We need to salute not only those who have served, but those who continue to protect and defend the United States of America."

Penrod, who rose to fame as the powerhouse lead vocalist for The Gaither Vocal Band, was raised in West Texas and, while his local radio station didn't carry the Opry, there was plenty of good Country music to be heard.  "I grew up listening to some great artists," Guy says.  "Pride, Ray Price, Marty Robbins, George Jones and Tammy Wynette ruled the airwaves then, and their music is just as impactful today. I am proud to follow in their footsteps at The Ryman."

Guy's debut solo CD, BREATHE DEEP, was released worldwide in 2010. The best-selling disc generated critical acclaim and earned Guy a Dove Award nomination, chart success and recognition as a stand-alone artist. BREATHE DEEP was the biggest-selling New Southern Gospel album of 2010. He recently entertained the sold-out crowd at the 17th Annual ICM Faith, Family & Country Awards Show where he was nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year.  Penrod has performed over 170 shows on his "Breathe Deep Tour" in 2010-2011, including three days as part of  Dollywood's Gospel Celebration and various stages around the world.

In November, Guy returns to the studio to begin work on a new CD.  The upcoming HYMNS disc has generated an early buzz within the industry and among his fans. He will continue to record through December, and in January heads out on the First Annual Snowbird Tour of Florida. 

ABOUT GUY PENROD
During his 14-year tenure with The Gaither Vocal Band, Guy logged over 3,000 hours of television airtime and generated CD/DVD sales of over 20,000,000 units.  With The GVB, Guy won four Dove Awards and one Grammy; performed at legendary venues, including: Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center; Sydney Opera House and more.  Penrod has performed in front of more than six million fans and appeared onstage in Germany, Norway, England, Scotland, Ireland, Holland, Denmark, Israel, South Africa and Australia. He was inducted in to the Texas Gospel Hall of Fame in 2011. Guy and his wife Angie have eight children and they live just south of Nashville, TN.
