GAC's Backstory: Joe Nichols Premieres Saturday, May 12 at 11PM ET!

GAC's Backstory: Joe Nichols Premieres Saturday, May 12 at 11PM ET!

Joe's journey from childhood to fatherhood was anything but idyllic and for the first time he shares his story with GAC. Backstory: Joe Nichols premieres Saturday, May 12, 11:00PM ET on Great American Country (GAC). Nichols recalls his parents’ nasty divorce, physical abuse from his father and a love affair with whiskey that he says started at around age 13. When he could, he’d shut himself in his bedroom, listening over and over again to a Merle Haggard record, mimicking the country music icon until he was hoarse.

Today Joe admits to enjoying life one day at a time. “I live free now,” he says. “I don’t live perfectly, I don’t claim that. That’s a mistake because I can’t promise anything past today.” Joe's brother, wife, manager, producer, therapist, and friend are some of those interviewed for the special.

Backstory: Joe Nichols  premieres Saturday, May 12 at 11PM ET on GAC.

CMA NOW ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS FOR 2012 CMA BROADCAST AWARDS


CMA NOW ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS FOR 2012 CMA BROADCAST AWARDS

NASHVILLE – Beginning today, Friday, May 11, the Country Music Association will be accepting online submissions for the 2012 CMA Broadcast Awards for Broadcast Personality, Station, and National Broadcast Personality of the Year at Broadcast.CMAawards.com.
CMA is in the midst of the organization’s “Year of Country Radio” campaign. During February’s Country Radio Seminar, CMA awarded a complimentary organizational and two individual memberships to all 2,033 Country stations in the United States for one year. Since CMA Broadcast Award contenders must be current CMA members, all Country stations are eligible to vie for the Major, Large, Medium, and Small Market Station of the Year Award this year.        
“The ‘Year of Country Radio’ is all about celebrating the hard work of Country radio and its importance to our format,” said CMA Chief Executive Officer, Steve Moore. “We’re always honored to spotlight the best of the best in Country radio, and this year will be especially meaningful with so many new members in the CMA family.”
Other categories for submission include Broadcast Personality in four different market sizes (major, large, medium, and small) as well as CMA National Broadcast Personality of the Year. To submit an entry, CMA member radio stations and broadcast personalities in the U.S. and Canada should log on to Broadcast.CMAawards.com, where guidelines and instructions for entries are posted. The site will continue to accept submissions until 5:00 PM/CT, Friday, June 29.
All entries must reflect performances and events between June 1, 2011 and May 31, 2012. CMA’s panel of judges, which includes more than 50 distinguished radio and industry professionals, will be able to view and evaluate each entry online. After the judges’ scores are submitted, Deloitte & Touche LLP® will tabulate the winners.
Winners will then be notified in early October and recognized at “The 46th Annual CMA Awards,” which will be held later this year in Nashville. The annual gala, which is known as “Country Music’s Biggest Night™,” will be broadcast live on the ABC Television Network.
For more information about CMA Broadcast Award entries please contact Brandi Simms, CMA Senior Manager of Membership & Balloting, at BSimms@CMAworld.com.

BUCKY COVINGTON'S BUS INVOLVED IN ACCIDENT

BUCKY COVINGTON'S BUS INVOLVED IN ACCIDENT
Nashville, TN…(May 10, 2012)...Bucky Covington's tour bus was involved in an accident today on I-65 in Birmingham, AL while out for a run of tour dates. Covington had already been dropped off for an earlier appearance that day and was not onboard at the time of the accident. At this time, there appear to be no serious injuries in either vehicle although a few passengers were taken to a nearby hospital for further examination. Tonight's show and this weekend's dates in Germantown, Illinois (5/11) and Kenosha, Wisconsin (5/12) will go on as scheduled. One thing is for sure, Bucky will soon be in the market for a new tour bus so he can continue to entertain his fans on the road this summer and fall!

AARON LEWIS SIGNS WITH BLASTER RECORDS

AARON LEWIS SIGNS WITH BLASTER RECORDS
MAJOR MANAGEMENT AND PROMOTION TEAM
PREPARED TO SUPPORT LEWIS’ COUNTRY MUSIC CAREER
 
Latest single “Endless Summer” making an impact on radio now.
 
Aaron LewisNASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 10, 2012) – Blaster Entertainment has signed Aaron Lewis to its growing roster of recording artists. Lewis received rave reviews for his inaugural country music project, “Town Line”, a solo EP that debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart last year.  In addition, his debut single, “Country Boy” has been certified gold and had multiple award nominations.

“Aaron Lewis is a great musician,” said Tom Porter, CEO of Blaster Entertainment.  “His songs relate true country values and life experiences.  We’re excited about having him on the Blaster team.”

“Country music was the first music I ever listened to,” Lewis said.  “I sat on my grandfather’s lap listening to his country records and I grew to love them.  The country audience has been so accepting of my music and I’m excited about working with the Blaster team to put out the new record this summer.”

In addition to Blaster, Lewis’ management team -- Vector Management -- has formed an experienced marketing and promotion team to help continue Lewis’ country music career.  “We believe in Aaron,” said Ken Levitan, president of Vector Management.  “The fan reaction to Aaron’s records has been phenomenal.  We’ve put together a great team to help introduce him to country fans who may not have heard him yet.”

Levitan has recruited Derek Simon to handle marketing and project management for Lewis’ forthcoming album.  “Blaster is a perfect home for Aaron,” says Simon, who worked with Lewis on his “Town Line” EP.  “We’ve put together a strong, focused team and we’ll pick up exactly where Aaron left off with ‘Town Line’.”

Lewis’ current single, “Endless Summer” is picking up radio airplay now.  Veteran music executive Skip Bishop, along with John Ettinger, Tony Benken and the entire Quarterback promotion team, have been introducing the song to radio stations. “You don’t have to look too far to find rabidly positive fans, press and excitement around Aaron Lewis,” Bishop says.  “His music brings a very cool and contemporary edge to country radio.”

Aaron’s new music video for “Endless Summer” recently debuted on CMT’s Big New Music Weekend. Leslie Fram, Senior VP for Music Strategies at CMT said, “It was quickly obvious that we had just discovered the official anthem of the Summer of 2012!”

Lewis recently played to a record crowd at the Stagecoach Festival in California, an acoustic performance that one writer called one of the top five performances at that festival.   Performing his recent hit “Country Boy” and other songs from his first country EP, Lewis had the crowd singing along.

Lewis follows in the footsteps of other great country artists who have signed with the Blaster Entertainment team.  Hank Williams, Jr., Neal McCoy and Brother Trouble are also part of the Blaster family.  Aaron Lewis’ full-length album is set for release later this summer.  Blaster Records is distributed by Warner Music Nashville.
