EASTON CORBIN “ROAD TO THE RAM® JAM”

“ROAD TO THE RAM® JAM” ANNOUNCES EASTON CORBIN AS THE THIRD ARTIST IN THE ALL-STAR COUNTRY MUSIC SERIES

“Road to the Ram Jam” Provides the Ultimate Fan Experience Leading Up to the
Invitation-only Ram Jam Concert in Nashville, Dec. 29th

May 9, 2012 – Mercury Nashville recording artist Easton Corbin will join previously announced artists Kellie Pickler and Brantley Gilbert for the “Road to the Ram® Jam” series and sweepstakes.  The Road to the Ram Jam, presented by the Ram Truck brand, features five of today’s best country music artists and provides fans the opportunity to win prizes including trips for two to an invitation-only 2012 Ram Jam concert event December 29th in Nashville, TN, where all five artists will perform.

The Road to the Ram Jam series and sweepstakes helps bring country music fans closer to some of their favorite artists with exclusive video content, the opportunity to win prizes including collectible posters and vinyl records through participating country radio stations nationwide, and free music downloads. Fans can enter the sweepstakes for a chance to win trips for two to the invitation-only 2012 Ram Jam concert event at www.RamTrucks.com/RoadtoRamJam or on the Ram Trucks Facebook page at www.ramjamsweeps.com.

Corbin will offer fans a chance to win a free download of his new single “Lovin' You Is Fun,” from his forthcoming sophomore album All Over the Road, when they enter the Road to the Ram Jam concert sweepstakes. The remaining Road to the Ram Jam artists will be announced throughout the year and all five participating will receive a lease on a 2012 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn truck. The trucks will then be auctioned off in early 2013 with all proceeds going to benefit a charity of each artist’s choice.

Proceeds from Corbin’s Ram truck will be donated to the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund. The Scholarship Fund honors the bravery and dedication exhibited by Americans in our Armed Forces who have sacrificed life or limb defending our country by awarding college scholarships to their children. Scholarships are awarded to students whose parent has been killed or permanently disabled in an operational mission or training accident.  For the 2011 academic year, they awarded more than $1 million in scholarships to 240 sons and daughters of American heroes.  To date, the Fund has awarded more than $5 million in scholarships. For more information on the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund you can go to www.freedomalliance.org.

“I feel so fortunate to be apart of the Road to the Ram Jam series involving three things I am passionate about; trucks, honoring our military and country music,” said Corbin. “Growing up on a farm, I learned to love trucks.  Driving my new, loaded Laramie Longhorn is great and to be able to auction it off and donate the proceeds to the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund is an added bonus.  I am looking forward to this program and being a part of the Ram Jam Concert in Nashville in December.” 

“Easton Corbin is a great addition to the select family of Road to the Ram Jam artists,” said Fred Diaz, President and CEO - Ram Truck Brand and Chrysler de Mexico, Chrysler Group LLC. “Easton’s road to success clearly shows that he shares the same determination, hard-work values and dedication as the Ram Truck brand. We’re proud to see him driving a new Laramie Longhorn.”

Easton Corbin is known for his traditional country sound, authentic lyrics and mastery of understatement. He was the first country male artist in 17 years to have his first two consecutive singles reach No. 1 -- “A Little More Country Than That” and “Roll With It.” The Gilchrist County Florida native won all of the Breakthrough Artist awards in December 2010 at the American Country Awards – Artist of the Year: Breakthrough Artist, Single of the Year: Breakthrough Artist and Music Video: Breakthrough Artist for “A Little More Country Than That.” Billboard named Corbin as the Top New Country Artist of 2010.  His current single is “Lovin’ You Is Fun,” from his forthcoming sophomore album All Over the Road.

About Ram Truck Brand

ABBA “The Essential Collection“




 __________________________________________________________________
ABBA für die Insel. Alle Hits und noch viel mehr. Auf zwei CDs und einer DVD schlägt die funkelnagelneue “Essential Collection“ von ABBA einen bemerkenswerten Bogen durch ihre gesamte Karriere.

Die taufrische Retrospektive der schwedischen Pop-Superstars erscheint am 25. Mai 2012 in drei Formaten: als Doppel-CD mit 39 Audio-Tracks und 12-seitigem Booklet. Als Einzel-DVD mit 36 Titeln. Und als limitierte luxuriöse Hardcover-Buch-Edition mit den beiden CDs plus der DVD, inklusive eines 24-seitigen anspruchsvollen Booklets mit neuen Linernotes vom Pop-Literaten und ABBA-Experten Carl Magnus Palm, der “The Essential Collection“ kompiliert hat. (2001 erschien von Palm die umfassende Band-Biographie "Licht und Schatten, ABBA - Die wahre Geschichte".)

Die Doppel-CD vereint die kompletten Single-A-Seiten von ABBA mit Titeln, die nur in bestimmten Ländern als Singles erschienen sind. Dazu gibt es diverse Albumtracks, zu denen Videos gedreht wurden.

Die DVD enthält sämtliche offiziellen Promo-Clips der 1970er und `80er von ABBA.  Direkt von den originalen 16-mm-Filmen remastert und aufgearbeitet, sind sie dort im 16:9-Format zu sehen – also mit einem großzügigeren Bildausschnitt als beim gängigen 4:3-Rahmen.
I-Tüpfelchen der DVD sind zwei unveröffentlichte Videos: die spanischen Versionen “Conciéndome, Conociéndote“ und “Gracias por la música“ (von “Knowing Me, Knowing You“ und “Thank You For The Music“).

Vierzig Jahre nach Bandgründung (am 1. Juni 1972 erschien ABBAs erste Single “People Need Love“ ) und knapp dreißig Jahre nach ihrer Auflösung sind ABBA immer noch allgegenwärtig.

TV-Tipp: Am 2. Juni 2012 läuft zur besten Sendezeit, um 20:15, die große Samstags-Dokumentation „,Thank you for the Music‘ – 40 Jahre ABBA“ bei VOX.

“My Name Is Jimmy Martin (Do You Remember Me?)”

“My Name Is Jimmy Martin (Do You Remember Me?)”
by Ray Edwards & Hard Rock Mountain


Marty Raybon, Russell Moore, Darrell Webb, Lou Reid,
Christy Reid and Ray Edwards
all contribute their vocal talents to the new single 
 
Nashville, TN (May 8, 2012) --  Rural Rhythm Records is proud to announce the new single release, “My Name Is Jimmy Martin (Do You Remember Me?)” from the upcoming album, PORTRAIT OF A BLUEGRASS SONGWRITER by Ray Edwards & Hard Rock MountainMarty Raybon, Russell Moore, Darrell Webb, Lou Reid, Christy Reid and Ray Edwards all contribute their vocal talents to the new single.  Musicians include:  Ray Edwards (Banjo); Bobby Wood (Mandolin); Mike Wood (Rhythm Guitar); Doug Campbell (Electric Bass); Jimmy Martin Jr. (Snare Drum); and special guest, Michael Cleveland (Fiddle).
 
Jimmy Martin has always been Ray Edwards’ bluegrass hero, so when Jimmy passed away in 2005, Ray decided to pay tribute to Jimmy in song and tapped his long-time friend Larry Cox to help him co-write the composition. "A brilliantly written song performed by some of the greatest musicians and singers in the business.  I was honored to play snare drum on the session and I know Dad would be proud,” said Jimmy Martin Jr.
 
PORTRAIT OF A BLUEGRASS SONGWRITER is part of the new SAGE BRUSH MUSIC / RURAL RHYTHM RECORDS Songwriters Album projects.  SAGE BRUSH MUSIC is a sister division with RURAL RHYTHM RECORDS and is working together to showcase the talents of top songwriters in our genre.
 
Rural Rhythm's first album project which showcased a top songwriter was the IBMA and DOVE nominated album LOOK TO THE LIGHT: Songs Of Faith By The Pen of Rick Lang.  Although the songs were not under the SAGE BRUSH MUSIC banner the project gave birth to the concept of showcasing top songwriters in special album project format.
 
Ray Edward's association with Sage Brush Music is not a new one.  Both have teamed up with great success in the past with the #1 song "Hard Rock Mountain Prison ('Til I Die)" by Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out, the gospel hit song "Over In The Promised Land" by Lou Reid & Carolina, and the current single by Lou Reid & Carolina "Carolina Moonshine Man".
 
More on Ray Edwards
Ray is a Two-Time World Champion Banjo Player.  He has toured and recorded for over thirty-years with the likes of Randy Travis, Tom T. Hall, Jeanie C. Riley, Ed Bruce, Lynn Anderson, Sammy Kershaw and many more.  Ray’s songs have been recorded by George Jones, Tom T. Hall and more.
 
Stay tuned for upcoming announcement and an all-star line-up appearing on PORTRAIT OF A BLUEGRASS SONGWRITER at RuralRhythm.com

Z ur Elvis Week nach Memphis, Tennessee


Z ur Elvis Week nach Memphis, Tennessee 

Zum 35. Todestag Elvis Presleys erwartet seine Heimatstadt Memphis zigtausende von Besuchern. Mit der Veranstaltungswoche Elvis Week vom 10. bis 18. August erinnern Fans und Weggefährten an den King of Rock ‘n‘ Roll.

Den Höhepunkt der Elvis Week bildet das Elvis 35th Anniversary Concert am Abend des Todestages, dem 16. August. Elvis selbst singt; auf einer riesigen Leinwand ist er zu sehen. Toningenieure haben seine Stimme aus Fernseh-Mitschnitten geholt; dazu spielen Musiker der Originalband. Am Vorabend treffen sich am Elvis-Anwesen Graceland Fans mit Kerzen zur Candlelight Vigil, bringen Blumen und Briefe zum Grab.
Nachwuchs-Kings schmettern in Wettbewerben Klassiker von Jailhouse Rock bis Hound Dog. Man sieht Elvis-Filme; Musiker und Schauspieler erzählen ihre Erinnerungen – auch Barbara Eden aus Flammender Stern, die spätere „bezaubernde Jeannie“.
Sonderausstellungen in Graceland beleuchten schon seit Jahresbeginn das Leben Elvis Presleys. Auch ständige Elvis-Attraktionen in Memphis sind zur Elvis Week geöffnet: neben Graceland etwa das Sun Studio, wo er seine ersten Platten einspielte.
