MCGHEE ENTERTAINMENT NAMES GINO ROSATO TO EUROPEAN BOARD OF DIRECTORS
 
Nashville, Tenn. (Thursday, December 15, 2011) – McGhee Entertainment continues to expand their presence on the forefront of the music industry by naming Gino Rosato to their European Board of Directors. 
 
Doc McGhee, CEO of McGhee Entertainment, spent the majority of his summer in Europe while multiple artists from the McGhee Ent. roster—including KISS and Vintage Trouble—toured across the continent.  In passing, McGhee met Director of Corporate Operations for LOTUS Group, Rosato, who promotes concerts as a side passion.  The two found they shared a similar vision of the future of the music industry in Europe and immediately began discussing ways to join forces. 
 
Rosato’s new role will consist of finding new strategic partnerships for all of McGhee Entertainment artists in Europe.
 
“In my 35 years of business, I’ve had the pleasure of aligning with several visionaries in the profession, and I immediately recognized Rosato’s innovation in the world of touring and knew McGhee Entertainment could benefit from an alliance,” shares McGhee.  “I’m looking forward to breaking new ground as we continue to grow this division of the company with Rosato at the helm.” 
 
Rosato may be reached at GRosato@lotuscars.com.

Haudegen: Single: Ich war nie bei dir

Haudegen

Single: Ich war nie bei dir
VÖ: 02.03.2012

Sie haben sich aus dem buchstäblichen Nichts in die vorderste Riege deutschsprachiger Musik gearbeitet, die Charts mit ihrem Albumdebüt von hinten aufgerollt, sich schließlich die Namen ihrer Plattenkäufer tätowieren lassen und während monatelanger Touren die stetig wachsenden Massen begeistert - kein heimischer Newcomeract hat 2011 für auch nur annähernd so viel Furore gesorgt wie Haudegen.  Hagen Stoll und Sven Gillert transportieren den Zeitgeist auf ihren imposanten Schultern; sind keine überkandidelten Rockstars oder gecastete Popsternchen, sondern Männer aus dem Volk. Bodenständige Kumpeltypen mit beachtlichen Muskelpartien, vernarbten Kämpferherzen so groß wie Möbelwagen und einer Geschichte. Ihrer eigenen, deren erste Kapitel Haudegen schon erfolgreich mit den Singleauskopplungen "Ein Mann ein Wort" oder "Zu Hause" aufgeschlagen haben.
Mit "Ich war nie bei Dir" erscheint Anfang März das bisher wohl eindringlichste, anrührendste, zerbrechlichste Stück der beiden Ostberliner Gossenpoeten: Haudegen und die Kraft der leisen Töne; eingefangen in der kleinen, großen Ballade vom Suchen, vom Loslassen und vom Abschied. Kein melodramatischer Pomp, sondern die Schönheit einfacher Worte. Schlicht & ergreifend, so wie auch der Titel ihres im vergangenen Spätsommer veröffentlichten Debütalbums, das sich seit dem Top10-Chartentry ganze 16 phantastische Wochen in den Top100 hielt. Zwei Freunde auf ihrem gemeinsamen Weg durch dick und dünn. Einem Weg, der zwar nicht immer der leichteste, dafür aber der ehrlichste ist. Auch wenns weh tut.
The Belle Brigade: Single: I Didn't Mean It

The Belle Brigade

Single: I Didn't Mean It
VÖ: 04.12.2011

Im Grunde genommen, war es überhaupt keine Frage, dass es mit "Breaking Dawn - Part 1" auch der brandneue Teil der berühmt-berüchtigten "Twilight"-Saga auf Anhieb an die Spitze der internationalen Kinocharts schaffen würde. Immer noch ist die Faszination für das neuerdings frisch verheiratete Vampirpärchen Bella & Edward ungebrochen, ebenso wie auch sämtliche Verkaufsrekorde des dazugehörigen Soundtracks! Nach dem gigantischen Erfolg des von Bruno Mars performten Lead-Tracks "It Will Rain" setzt mit dem US-Duo The Belle Brigade nun die zweite Band vom "Twilight"-Soundtrack zum schmissigen Blutsaugerehegelöbnisständchen an: Die beiden Geschwister Barbara und Ethan Gruska entstammen nicht nur einer komplett musikverrückten Familie (ihr Großvater ist kein Geringerer als der mehrfache Oscar-Preis tragende Komponist John Williams und ihr Vater, Filmmusikproducer Jay Gruska, ist ebenfalls nicht ganz unbekannt),  haben nicht nur zusammen am renommierten California Institute Of Arts studiert, sondern mit ihrem Simon & Garfunkel-, Fleetwood Mac- und den Beatles-inspirierten Songs zwischen Rock und Country auch den großen Sprung in die düster-glitzernde "Twilight"-Welt geschafft. Mit Punktlandung sogar. Auch wenn sie knackfrech behaupten, sie würden das alles doch gar nicht so meinen: Auf "I Didn`t Mean It" wecken The Belle Brigade mit ihren krachigen Selfmade-Pianos, den charmanten Knörzgitarren und nicht zuletzt mit den zum Niederknien anbetungswürdigen Bubblegum-Wooohoooo-Chören Tote auf, und sogar Untote! Irgendwie ein bisschen nerdy, aber gemacht, um den Tag zu retten. Und die Nacht erst recht. Mit anderen Worten: Ein Song für die Ewigkeit (Vorsicht: Vampirwitz!)!

OST/ Various

Album: Alvin & the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked
VÖ: 09.12.2011

ERST AB MONTAG IM MPN !
Chip ahoi! Nach Alvin und die Chipmunks (2007) und Alvin und die Chipmunks 2 (2010) tauchen die chaotischsten Streifenhörnchen der Welt wieder auf - oder unter, wie man’s nimmt. Denn ab Dezember unternehmen Alvin, Simon und Theodore eine Kreuzfahrt, auf der sie nicht nur einen ganzen Edel-Clipper auseinandernehmen, sondern auch auf einer einsamen Insel stranden. In Alvin und die Chipmunks: Chipwrecked ist das Chaos vorprogrammiert, aber schlechte Laune wird gar nicht erst aufkommen. Immerhin haben die Chipmunks wieder einen ganzen Beutel großer Hits dabei, die sie auf ihre ureigenste Art im legendären Chipmunk-Style zu jeder Gelegenheit zum Besten geben - diesmal in schönster Eintracht mit den Chipettes, mit denen sie sich (wir erinnern uns) im „Alvin und die Chipmunks 2“ heiße Gesangs-Gefechte geliefert hatten.
Bereits die ersten beiden Soundtracks wurden zu wahren Chip-Hits. Das Album zum ersten Teil, Alvin & The Chipmunks - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, erhielt Platin in den USA, und der mit Gold ausgezeichnete zweite Teil Alvin And The Chipmunks 2: The Squeakquel - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack wurde gleich nach Erscheinen zu einem Top-10-Hit in den Billboard 200! Der Soundtrack enthielt überdies das Duett  "The Song" der Chipettes mit den „Popstars“-Gewinnern 2008, Queensberry, welches Platz 6 (!) der amerikanischen Billboard Charts erreichte. Den Erfolg des Vorgänger als Vorbild, wird auf der deutschen Version des neuen Soundtracks auch ein Song von Queensberry als Bonus Track enthalten sein.

Steel Guitar News

Hello fellow players,

There’s a lot more to being in the music business than standing in front of a microphone or playing your steel guitar. There are many people who have come to Nashville to be a big star and ended up being much more successful over a much longer period of time in another facet of the music business that they may not have even known existed when they came to town.

Then there are other people who came to Nashville, got a good music education and took what they learned back to their hometown area and were successful musically there.

I remember a great songwriter, Dave Kirby, who came to town to be a guitar player on the road with a star. He soon found out that he could make much more money being a studio guitarist. After doing many demo sessions for famous songwriters, he realized that he could be a songwriter also. Instead of getting $75 for playing on someone else’s demo, he could get thousands of dollars for writing the song himself in less time than it took him to play a demo.

Dave went on to write many hit songs such “Is Anybody Going To San Antone” and many hits for Merle Haggard, along with playing guitar on many master sessions and raised a good family. Dave confided to me that his dream was to be so successful that he could move back to his hometown, make money from there in the music business, have a new pickup truck, an off road motorcycle and time to enjoy them.

Dave did realize his dream. However, after having a full life and making thousands of friends, Dave died a few years ago. I know he died very happy. The moral for this week’s Bobbe’s Tips is to follow that musical dream, whether it’s in Nashville or in your home area.

Once you get in the business, you will find many branches and different roads that you can travel throughout your musical career. There are many turns that you can make that will be very fruitful and interesting. Of course, there will be some up hills and down hills in your travels, but you will find this in all of life in general.

Find a facet of the music business that you enjoy, do it and make good decisions along the way and see where the musical road of life can take you. It’s taken thousands of nice people to a world of immense fun and riches. Don’t expect it overnight and do expect to work hard.

This pertains to steel guitar players, singers, even accountants, lawyers, bookkeepers, road managers, sound and lighting crews, tour bus drivers and booking agents. Remember the music business needs every service that every other business needs. Nashville is full of people who came here to be singers and players and ended up being very successful in related fields.

Most towns and cities in the USA have some type of music business. You may find the scene in your home area to be bigger and more lucrative than you imagined. Most towns have recording studios and do jingles for local advertisers such as car dealers and restaurants. They need musicians.

The gospel music world spreads over the entire planet. This can be a very personally rewarding sector of the music business. A song can be written anywhere. You don’t have to be in Nashville to be part of the music business.

Hunter Thompson was just being humorous when he said “The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There’s also a negative side.” Funny how he always liked to hang around on Paycheck’s bus when we toured California. Actually, he loved it!

Don’t be afraid to follow your dreams.

BILLIE JO SPEARS PASSES ON

COUNTRY MUSIC  MOURNS ANOTHER LEGEND
BILLIE JO SPEARS PASSES ON


Country Singer and Vidor resident Billie Jo Spears has passed away.  Her oldest son Tim Pierce says she died at her home in Vidor Wednesday morning.  Billie Jo was 73 years old.

Spears, who had her biggest Country hits in the 1970s, was born in Beaumont.  She has called Vidor her home for the past 10 years.

She had 5 songs reach the top-10 of the Country music charts between 1969 and 1977.  Her her biggest hit, and only song to make #1 on the Country music carts, is "Blanket on the Ground" which she released in 1975.
Arrangements are being handled by R.S. Farmer Funeral Home in Silsbee.  A memorial service will be planned but the date has not yet been set.
Although Spears had her biggest country hits in the 1970s, she sounded more earthy and more grounded on records than other country music singers during that time. This was because during the height of Spears' career in the 1970s, country's sound moved more pop-sounding. This new type of Country was called countrypolitan, and the popular singers of this genre at the time were Crystal Gayle, Lynn Anderson, Kenny Rogers, Ronnie Milsap, and Mac Davis. However, Spears, unlike so many of her contemporaries, did not follow the trends of the day, and proved to Nashville that country music can still have a more earthy sound.
Spears was born in 1937 in Beaumont, Texas. She made her professional debut at age 13 at a country music concert in Houston, Texas. She cut her first single while she was still a teenager called "Too Old For Toys, Too Young For Boys". The single was released by the indie label Abbot under the name "Billie Jean Moore". She also performed on the Louisiana Hayride at 13.[1] After graduating high school, she sang in nightclubs and sought a record deal. Spears' early career was orchestrated by famed country/rockabilly songwriter Jack Rhodes. Working out of his makeshift recording studio, Rhodes took it upon himself to provide Spears with material and clout in her early years. Spears moved from Texas to Nashville, Tennessee in 1964. She got her first recording contract with United Artists Records, and worked with producer Kelso Herston. Her first singles brought her little to no success. Soon her producer moved over to Capitol Records and Spears followed. She earned a recording contract there in 1968.

Height of her recording career

http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTCi8w_yhIUIuAmSJo9wClu1Ya9cK1_oUtmDddRrj_EA5hRMi6KSpears' first hit came in 1969, when her "Mr. Walker It's All Over" reached number 4 on the Country chart.[1] It also reached the Pop charts at #80. The song told of a secretary who resigned a job where she was discriminated against. She gained four more top 40 country hits during the next two years and then went four years without a hit.[1] During this time at Capitol, Spears recorded some cover versions of popular Country hits, like "Ode to Billie Joe" (originally by Bobbie Gentry) and "Harper Valley PTA" (originally by Jeannie C. Riley). She also recorded novelty songs, like "Get Behind Me Satan and Push". According to the book Country Music: The Rough Guide, her vocals in that song sounded similar to that of Loretta Lynn. Soon however, she decided she would have more success it she switched record companies.
In 1975, Spears returned to United Artists Records, which was now the home to some of country music's pop-based acts, like Kenny Rogers. She returned to the charts in 1975 with "Blanket on the Ground"[1] The song had been previously turned down by Nashville producers who feared controversy with the chorus line "slipping around", even though the tune was not about adultery.[2] The expected controversy never materialized, and it became her only number-one song. In the United Kingdom the song climbed into the top ten of the UK Singles Chart. An album of the same name was released that year, which was also a success.
Spears' followed up "Blanket on the Ground" with the Top Ten "What I've Got In Mind." The track did even better across the Atlantic, turning out to be a top five British hit. Spears had successes with "Misty Blue" (a song covered by numerous other artists, including Wilma Burgess in the '60s, who made the song a Top ten Country hit), "'57 Chevrolet," "Love Ain't Gonna Wait For Us," "If You Want Me," and others. 1981's cover version of Tammy Wynette's 1960s hit, "Your Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad," was Spears' last voyage into America's country top 20. Her Greatest Hits album was a Top Ten best seller, and furthered her fan base.

Later career and life today

By the mid 1980s, her success in the United States had tapered off. However, she retained a following in the UK, and remains a popular live performer there. Spears has recorded a number of albums for the British market that had limited or even no release in the US. This level of fame in the UK was summed up by the magazine, Country Music People, during the 1990s when their article described Spears as "The Queen Mother of country music." She continued releasing albums in the United States throughout much of the 1980s. However, by the late '80s, she did not record as much. She recovered from triple bypass surgery in 1993, now makes her home in Vidor, Texas, and continues to tour.
