Pete Kennedy Wraps Up Two Weeks of Songwriting In Nashville

Ireland's Pete Kennedy Wraps Up Two Weeks of Songwriting In Nashville
Pete Kennedy, who has been enjoying chart success both in the UK and his native Ireland, has just wrapped up an intense two-weeks in Nashville co-writing with some of the city’s top songwriters.
Pete jetted back to Ireland this past Sunday to sit down with his manager and determine which songs will complete his upcoming album.  “At this point, choosing is going to be difficult,” says this international troubadour. “We came up with some great songs, and what an honour it’s been to meet these folks. I can’t wait to write with them again.”
During these busy 14 days in Music City, Pete has written with former American Idol contestant Ayla Brown, country music’s latest rockin’ phenomenon Corey Wagar, Canadian songstress Jessica Ridley as well as successful songwriters Beau Fuller (Jimmie Van Zant), Lynn Wilbanks, Cece DuBois, Jan Buckingham (Lee Greenwood), Bob McGilpin and Jo-Leah Wallace Tilbury. Jan commented, “Pete’s a modern-day Neil Diamond. With the melodies and stories of a troubadour master coupled with his good looks and Irish charm, Pete should be unstoppable!”
This global singer/songwriter has toured throughout Ireland, Germany and the UK, and will be returning to Nashville the end of this month to complete work on his current album. He’ll also be making appearances during the CMA Music Festival at the CMA’s Global Showcase, the Music & Fashion event at the Hard Rock Café and a performance inside the Bridgestone Arena on Thursday, June 7th.
Pete Kennedy's debut EP, "The Nashville Sessions Volume 1," currently sits at number-24 on AirPlay Direct's Americana/Triple-A chart.

Amber Hayes Makes Big Screen Acting Debut

Country Artist Amber Hayes Makes Big Screen Acting Debut, Contributes Music For May 25 Release of “Cowgirls N’ Angels”

Family-friendly movie stars James Cromwell, Bailee Madison, Jackson Rathbone, Frankie Faison, Alicia Witt

(Nashville, Tenn. – May 15, 2012) Fans can see Country artist Amber Hayes make her big screen acting debut and hear her music in the upcoming film, “Cowgirls N' Angels,” opening in theaters May 25.

The movie features three of Hayes’ songs, including her 2010 Top 40 Music Row single, “C’mon,” which can be heard in the “Cowgirls N’ Angels” preview trailer here.  Hayes plays a honky tonk singer in the film and performs the song as part of a prominent line dancing scene.  Also included is “Always There For Me,” a previously unreleased duet with Lonestar front man Richie McDonald, who has a cameo as Amber’s father in the same scene.  “Right As Rain” is the third Hayes track featured in the film.  All three songs are included on the official “Cowgirls N’ Angels” soundtrack, available on iTunes or Amazon.com.

“I am so excited for this movie to finally come out!” says Hayes.  “I got to film my part last year in Oklahoma, which is where I’m originally from, so it was a big thrill for me to be near my family and friends for a few days.  Having never shot a movie before, everything was such a cool experience for me, and getting to work around people like James Cromwell and Bailee Madison was just awesome.  It’s a great, heart-warming family film, and I’m so proud to have been a part of it.  I can’t wait to see it in the theater!”

Hayes recently finished recording her sophomore album in Nashville, with plans to release the project later this year.  Tracks “Somewhere Out West,” “I Built This Wall” and the uplifting “Any Day Is A Good Day” are available to stream at www.AmberHayesMusic.com.  An accomplished theater performer, Hayes’ break in Nashville came during her role as Kathy Twitty in the 2008-2009 Conway Twitty production, “Conway Twitty: The Man, The Music, The Legend, The Musical.”  Hayes released her debut C’mon EP in 2010, which included her second Music Row Top 40 single, 2011’s “Wait.”

The Timothy Armstrong-directed “Cowgirls N’ Angels” stars Oscar-nominated actor James Cromwell (“Babe,” “L.A. Confidential,” “The Green Mile,” “The Artist”) Bailee Madison (“Bridge To Terabithia,” “Brothers,” “Just Go With It”), Alicia Witt (“Friday Night Lights,”  “The Mentalist”) Frankie Faison (“The Silence of the Lambs,” “The Wire”) and Jackson Rathbone (“Twilight” films) among others. 

“Cowgirls N’ Angels” follows the adventures of young Ida Clayton (Bailee Madison), who joins a group of female rodeo trick riders in a quest to find her real father.  “Cowgirls N’ Angels” world premiered at the Dallas International Film Festival in April 2012 and is distributed by Samuel Goldwyn Films.

“Cowgirls N’ Angels” opens Friday, May 25, in Nashville area theaters at the following locations:

Keane auf Rekordkurs mit neuem Album "Strangeland" ++ Live bei Rock am Ring / Rock im Park
Mit ihrem neuen Album "Strangeland" bringen sich Keane in dieser Woche auf Rekordkurs: In Großbritannien steigt das neue Werk direkt auf Platz 1 ein und beschert der Band eine neue Bestmarke: Bereits zum fünften Mal erobern Keane von 0 auf Platz 1 die UK-Albumcharts! Nur The Beatles haben mehr Alben direkt an der Chartspitze gehabt. Auch hierzulande stehen alle Zeichen auf Erfolg: "Strangeland" steigt auf Platz 5 ein, zudem sind Keane beim Rock am Ring/Rock im Park-Festival zu sehen. Es besteht die Möglichkeit für Interviews!

Nach ihrem Debütalbum "Hopes And Fears" (2004), dem Nachfolger "Under The Iron Sea" (2006) und "Perfect Symmetry" (Top 10) sowie der EP "Night Train" legen Keane mit ihrem neuen Album "Strangeland" erneut einen phänomenalen Chartentry hin: Das Album steigt direkt auf Platz 5 in die Media Control Charts ein und ist damit das derzeit höchstplatzierte internationale und englischsprachige Album in den deutschen Charts! In ihrer Heimat Großbritannien holen sich Tom Chaplin (Gesang, Klavier) Tim Rice-Oxley (Keyboard, Gesang), Richard Hughes (Schlagzeug) und Jessie Quinn (Bassgitarre) die Top-Position, ziehen damit mit Coldplay gleich in der Bestenliste: Insgesamt fünfmal stiegen Keane direkt von 0 auf Platz 1 der UK-Albumcharts ein! Damit sind sie nun The Beatles auf den Fersen, denen die Chartspitze siebenmal direkt gelang.

Mit Live-Auftritten u.a. bei TV Total (ProSieben) und beim Sat.1 Frühstücksfernsehen haben Keane in den vergangenen Tagen ihre deutschen Fans erfreut - mehr Live-Power gibt es beim Festival Rock am Ring und Rock im Park 2012! Es besteht die Möglichkeit für Interviews.

Für Keane ist "Strangeland" auch eine Art Debüt, denn die jahrelang als Trio agierende Band hat einen Neuzuwachs bekommen: Bass-Gitarrist Jesse Quinn ist vor einigen Monaten als festes Bandmitglied zu Keane gestoßen und hat bei dem neuen Album "Strangeland" für kreativen Input gesorgt. Als Produzent holte sich die Band Dan Grech (Radiohead, The Vaccines, Howling Bells, Lana del Rey) in Tim Rice-Oxley’s Heimstudio. Im achten Jahr seit ihrem Debüt bleiben Keane weiterhin eine der erfolgreichsten und zweifellos spannendsten Bands des britischen Königreichs.

Taylor Swift Fan Injured by Drunk Driver Gets Surprise

Imagine waiting nine months to see your favorite singer in concert, and then having to miss the show because you've been hit by a drunk driver on the way there. To say that would be heartbreaking is an understatement.
Unfortunately, that's exactly what happened to Michelle Schulze and her 13-year-old daughter Summer on their way to see Taylor Swift perform Sept. 3, 2011 in Sacramento, Calif. The tickets were a Christmas gift to the teen, who idolizes the country powerhouse. But during their two hour drive to the show, a man who'd passed out at the wheel slammed into them. Luckily, both mom and daughter survived, but they were badly injured.

Kenny Chesney, Drew Brees & Matthew McConaughey Wrap Up The "Amazing Race" Charity Event Onstage At House Of Blues

Kenny Chesney, Drew Brees & Matthew McConaughey Wrap Up The "Amazing Race" Charity Event Onstage At House Of Blues

NEW ORLEANS, LA – In a city famous for live music, Kenny Chesney and band took the stage last night at the House of Blues in New Orleans to wrap up the 3rd Annual “Amazing Race” Charity Event. The race is a signature event of the Brees Dream Foundation, which was founded by New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and wife Britney. This year, the event partnered with the Just Keep Livin Foundation, founded by Matthew McConaughey and fiancée Camila Alves.
Of the show Chesney said, “We’ve been in tour rehearsals for weeks now so it was great for us to get on stage and feel the energy and feedback from the crowd. Tonight was all about playing music to help celebrate this great event.  People in this town love music and helping out their neighbor and I was glad to be a part of it.”
The intimate setting of the House of Blues allowed for some very special moments. A one of kind auction item allowing the highest bidder to sing on stage with Kenny raised $10,000. The two sang his # 1 hit, “Somewhere With You.” The night ended with Drew Brees and Matthew McConaughey uniting with Chesney on stage for an encore performance of Chesney’s gridiron anthem, “Boys of Fall.”  “Kenny has been a dear friend and always expressed interest in working with the foundation. This is such a wonderful way to end the race and his support means the world to us,” said Brees and McConaughey.
With the “Brothers of the Sun” Tour kick off only three weeks away, it’s back to rehearsals for Chesney and crew. The all stadium, 20 + city tour with longtime friend Tim McGraw, begins in Tampa, FL on June 2.

Kenny Chesney Reveals More Music From 'Welcome To The Fishbowl'

Kenny Chesney Reveals More Music From 'Welcome To The Fishbowl'

Haunting “Come Over” Available At Radio Today
NASHVILLE, TN – When Kenny Chesney releases his 13th studio album 'Welcome To The Fishbowl' on June 19 (BNA Records), he’ll do what he does every day of his life: raise the bar on himself. Fans have already gotten one glimpse into the Fishbowl with the Top 10 single “Feel Like A Rock Star,” the duet with ‘Brothers of the Sun’ Tour partner Tim McGraw. Today, Chesney unveils another layer with the contemplative and haunting “Come Over,” written by Sam Hunt, Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne.
‘“Come Over” is about two people who are as broken as their relationship is, when they realize deep down that their time together has probably ran its course, but they aren't really ready to emotionally or physically move on to something else,” said Chesney. “They keep going back to each other because it's familiar. It's about emotionally feeling wanted in a moment, but it feels impossible to let anybody else fill that void. It’s a really sexy song with lyrics that are incredibly universal.”
The music video, directed by longtime collaborator and friend Shaun Silva, was filmed off the coast of Florida. “'Come Over’ is the most intimate journey I've captured of Kenny in the 10 years we've been making music videos together,” said Silva. “It's clear within the first five seconds of this video that Kenny is committed to his character in the video and was more than willing to open up to the vulnerabilities associated with this tortured love story. The music video was finished in black-and-white, delivering a strikingly timeless and cinematic result.”
Fans will get the opportunity to hear songs from the new album live this summer with the ‘Brothers of the Sun’ Tour, with Chesney and McGraw. Kenny and longtime friend Tim McGraw take the stage together after a 10-year hiatus with an all-stadium, 20+ city tour that reaches coast to coast. The tour also features RCA Nashville artist Jake Owen, who is coming off back-to-back #1 singles, and rocker Grace Potter, who joined Kenny on last year’s Grammy, CMA, ACM and CMT-nominated song, “You & Tequila.”

Love & Theft’s Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson get a lesson in the fine art of whiskey making at Popcorn Sutton’s Tennessee White Whiskey Distillery
(Photo provided courtesy of Taillight ©2012 All Rights Reserved)

Episode to Air This Wednesday, May 16th at 9 PM (CT) / 10 PM (ET)*
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 14, 2012) –Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson of Love and Theft weren’t certain what they were getting into when they agreed to take on the fine art of whiskey making for GAC’s “Day Jobs.” For them, whiskey was something they’d experienced as bar patrons. They never realized the hard work and craftsmanship required to make smooth white whiskey — especially Popcorn Sutton’s White Whiskey, the barometer by which all other white whiskies are measured.  Under the tutelage of Jamey Grosser, owner of Popcorn Sutton’s White Whiskey Distillery and keeper of Popcorn’s legendary recipe, Love and Theft try their hand at distilling the fine elixir…without breaking the delicate machinery and without taking a sample.  Can they stand the pressure?  Tune in starting this Wednesday, May 16 at 9 PM (CT) / 10 PM (ET) to find out.

Aldean Continues His Sold Out 2012 MY KINDA PARTY TOUR
with First Amphitheatre Shows of the Year This Weekend

Nashville, Tenn. – May 14, 2012 – MULTI-PLATINUM country rocker Jason Aldean's "Fly Over States" reached the summit of the radio charts today, becoming his ninth career No. one and fifth consecutive single off his DOUBLE PLATINUM album MY KINDA PARTY to climb to the top spot. 

"I've always loved this song, and I really hoped it would be a single eventually.  I didn't know we would get to put out five songs off this album, let alone have all of them go to No. one.  It totally blows my mind," said Aldean.   "I'm really looking forward to the summer leg of the tour and getting some new music ready!"

Aldean is currently headlining the record-breaking 2012 MY KINDA PARTY TOUR.  He kicks off amphitheatre season this weekend with a sold out show in Birmingham, AL on Thurs. before heading to Atlanta, GA for a two-night stand at Aaron’s Amphitheatre at Lakewood on Fri. and Sat.  The first Atlanta show sold out in only four minutes in Feb. so a second was added and sold out in just a few hours.  Aldean has sold out every show so far this year, setting over a dozen venue attendance records along the way.

A Macon, GA native, Aldean has sold more than six million copies of his four studio albums and topped the charts with nine No. one songs. The reigning CMA Album of the Year, MY KINDA PARTY was the top-selling country album of 2011 and the No. five best-seller in all genres.
