Asleep At The Wheel und George Hamilton IV anstatt von Little Big Town mit dabei!

INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF COUNTRY MUSIC   
04. März 2012 / SAP ARENA Mannheim / 18.00 Uhr

Einziges Gastspiel in Deutschland!

Asleep At The Wheel und George Hamilton IV anstatt von Little Big Town mit dabei!

Außerdem mit dabei: Reba McEntire, Ricky Skaggs u. Lonestar


(07. Dezember 2011). Das bahnbrechende internationale Festival der Country Music kehrt nach langer Abwesenheit endlich wieder nach Europa zurück. Die deutsche Country Music-Gemeinde darf sich auf einen Event der Superlative freuen, wenn das International Festival Of Country Music am 4. März 2012 in der Mannheimer SAP Arena über die Bühne geht. Ein absolutes Top-Programm mit Reba McEntire, Asleep At The Wheel, Ricky Skaggs, Lonestar und George Hamilton IV garantiert eine außergewöhnliche Attraktivität.

Reba McEntire gilt als Superstar des Genres. Die Country-Legende und Schauspielerin steht an der Spitze des Festivals, das ihr die seltene Gelegenheit gibt, sich ihren Fans außerhalb Amerikas zu präsentieren. Reba McEntire freut sich sehr darauf, ihre Musik in Europa zu spielen. Zum letzten Mal war sie 1999 hier. „Wir sind wirklich enthusiastisch, dem europäischen Publikum sowohl bekannte Hits als auch neue Songs zu präsentieren“, erklärte die populäre Interpretin in einer Stellungnahme.

Asleep At The Wheel sind eine absolute Ausnahmeformation der klassischen Country-Musik. Ihre Karriere wird begleitet von enthusiastischer Kritik und enormer Publikumsresonanz.

Unglaubliche 14 Grammy-Auszeichnungen hat Ricky Skaggs im Verlauf seiner Laufbahn erhalten. Seit er im Alter von fünf Jahren die ersten Akkorde auf der Mandoline spielte, galt er als Wunderkind. Ricky Skaggs entwickelte sich zu einem der herausragenden Interpreten der traditionellen Country Music und des Bluegrass.

Seit 1995 haben sich Lonestar als Country-Chart-Stürmer einen Namen gemacht. Neun ihrer 27 Singles erreichten die Nr. 1, ihre Alben wurden mit Gold und Platin belohnt.

Das Festival-Programm wird komplettiert durch den legendären George Hamilton IV, der als Botschafter der Country Music gilt.

Little Big Town, die ursprünglich zum Festival-Aufgebot zählten, mussten ihre ursprüngliche Zusage wegen der Aufnahme ihres neuen Albums zurückziehen.

Das International Festival Of Country Music, das jetzt nach Europa zurückkehrt, war 23 Jahre lang ein Sprungbrett für Karrieren. Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Tammy Wynette und der unvergessen Johnny Cash wurden dadurch in Europa bekannt. Der legendäre Promoter Mervyn Conn erfüllt mit der Neuauflage den Wunsch zahlreicher Country-Fans, denen in zwei Jahrzehnten nichts Vergleichbares geboten wurde.

Tickets ab 55,- EUR (zzgl. Gebühr) und Infos gibt es unter der Hotline 0621-10 10 11 sowie an allen bekannten Vorverkaufsstellen und über das Internet unter www.bb-promotion.com und unter www.rheinneckarticket.de

JAKE OWEN RAISES MONEY FOR ST. JUDE

JAKE OWEN RAISES MONEY FOR ST. JUDE THROUGH MULTIPLE EVENTS and AOL PREMIERES EXCLUSIVE BEHIND THE SCENES FOOTAGE FROM "ALONE WITH YOU"




Nashville, TN – “If I can’t be on the road playing songs for people,” says RCA Nashville’s Jake Owen, “I’ll do it from my kitchen through a live concert on Stageit.com.” Jake recently played his second Stageit show to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “The concerts are very spur of the moment,” he says. “There aren’t any mics or cords, just a few guitars and my MAC that has an eyesight camera on it. I Tweet about it ahead of time to let everyone know we’re doing it. The other night we raised 3K for St. Jude in just 35 minutes. I would have been playing music with my friends in my kitchen anyway, so it’s a pretty cool way to give back.”
Jake’s philanthropy continues on December 10 at the benefit he and his childhood friend and the top ranked American in professional tennis, Mardy Fish, are hosting for the sixth consecutive year in their hometown of Vero Beach, FL. The concert will include performances by Eric Paslay, Chris Young and Jake. The official name of the event is Mardy’s Tennis & Jake’s Music Fest. Jake’s portion of the proceeds are donated to St. Jude and The Mardy Fish Foundation, whose mission is to provide children access to after school exercise, nutritional and enrichment programs in a safe environment to prepare them healthy, productive and successful lives so they can achieve their dreams.
