In der letzten Zeit haben es viele CDs aus sagen wir einmal „Zeitgründen“ nicht geschafft vorgestellt zu werden. Um so glücklicher ist man dann, wenn ein Album auf dem Redaktionstisch auftaucht, dass vom Ersten bis zum Letzten Song einen begeistert. So im Fall von TJ Maddux und der CD Homegrown. Produziert wurde das Album von Larry Beaird und als Studio Manager fungierte Tytus Welker. Jetzt aber zum Album selber. Es beinhaltet 9 Songs, die zwischen Country und Country Rock anzusiedeln sind. Mein ganz persönlicher Favorit ist der Song „Where I Wanna Be“. Eine wunderschöne Ballade, die einem zum Nachdenken anregt. Der einzige Kritikpunkt am Album, wenn nach der Nadel im Heuhaufen gesucht werden sollte ist, dass nur 9 Songs auf dem Album sind. Da hätte TJ Maddux ruhig etwas großzügiger sein dürfen.

COULD THE GRAND OLE OPRY BE ON THE SELLING BLOCK?

COULD THE GRAND OLE OPRY BE ON THE SELLING BLOCK??

What a sad thought.  It would be a God send to have Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, Reba McIntire, Vince Gill, George Jones, Dolly Parton, and a few other artists, purchase the Opry as a life saver.  All it would take is good management that knows how to preserve the Opry from the past to the present and future.  If the Opry gets in the wrong hands again, as it is now, it will die a tragic death.  I believe that The Grand Ole Opry will always be here if the artists who are being inducted hold true to their promise of taking care of The Mother Church of Country Music, and the only way to do that, is not to give her lip service, but to make regular appearances so that she can breathe with new life into her heart and soul.  There are not many of the legends left to keep the Opry as strong it once was, but there are some artists who took the pledge at induction to carry on the Opry Tradition, and we never see them on the Opry stage.  Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are too busy with their careers to seemingly care about the Opry as they promised.  Lip service is what they gave in their induction speech.  They are not the only ones to blame.  The Opry management uses the big names as promotion, but many of the members of the Opry are never there, and probably will never make any appearances that will help the Opry until they retire or quit the road, after they make enough money.

Opry management should have a contract whereby all artists have to make 12 appearances a year, which is not difficult in a year’s time.  The Opry has Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday shows to schedule the members.  It seems that the only time we see the ones who think they are superstars, is when they want to promote their career-other than that, they do not live by the promises they made when they were inducted.  Recently we inducted Keith Urban, and I strongly feel that he is committed to the future of the Opry as Little Jimmy Dickens, Bill Anderson, Jean Shepard, Stonewall Jackson, Jack Greene, Jimmy C. Newman, Vince Gill, Ricky Skaggs, Steve Wariner, etc.  The Opry will stay alive when those that are new members give of their time and talents to keep her moving forward in the future.

We have concerts for The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, “All For The Hall,” so why not have each member of the Opry submit their open dates each month, and when they are called upon to appear, don’t make excuses, just be there and do what they promised when they were inducted on the Circle of Wood where so many others kept their promise to the Opry.

Unless we have missed something in the past few years, what would Bloomberg know about what The Grand Ole Opry stands for.  Let’s hope and pray that if the Opry is ever sold, that it is purchased by those who understand what the Opry means to the history and legacy of the country music industry. 

The following article is kind of scary.  Hopefully the Grand Ole Opry will continue to be the home of Johnny Cash, Little Jimmy Dickens, Carrie Underwood, Jean Shepard, and she will always be The Mother Church of  Country Music.

(AP) -- Country music's most famous stage might hit the selling block. According to Bloomberg business news, the owner of the Grand Ole Opry is one step closer to losing the venue that's been home to everyone from Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton to Carrie Underwood. 

Nashville-based Gaylord Entertainment moved closer to becoming an acquisition target last week when shareholders voted to let a "poison pill" guarding against unwanted takeovers expire. Bloomberg reported that the $1.69 billion company is already reviewing options to boost its shares, which fell 33 percent last year.

"Room 203" By Natasha James Holding At #1



"Room 203" By Natasha James Holding At #1 On  
New Music Weekly Chart Second Consecutive Week!   
        
    (FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE) - The perfect Tex-Mex-flavored song about "needing a little love in my heart" on a lazy Summer afternoon has apparently hit a resonant chord with radio programmers: "Room 203," from Natasha James' soon-to-be-released album "My Country Has The Blues," is in its second week at Number 1 on the influential New Music Weekly Country Top 30 Indie Chart (see below).  "Room 203" continues to hold steady at #5 on the NMW Country Main Chart and #3 on the California Roots Music Report (#11 on International RMR Chart). As if that isn't enough, Natasha's 2009 album "Tequila Time" is holding steady at #17 on the RMR Internet Chart.    
     Purchase "Room 203" or any of the seven tracks on "My Country Has The Blues" here: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/natashajames16 .  
    James will take to the road this summer as part of the "Music for Veterans" Tour, along
with other selected concert dates.     
  
 
  
   
"The catchy "If You Think This Is Love," "I Don't Care" and "Somebody Just Blew It" provide further evidence of just what James can do, with a voice reminiscent of such country great as Loretta Lynn or blues babe Bonnie Raitt..."                                      Will Phoenix, LOS ANGELES EXAMINER  
  
"Natasha James is an American troubadour in the purest sense of the word. The Sonoma, California-based singer-songwriter emotes from her soul and approaches her material with an authenticity and grit that harbors no pretense or fabrication. She speaks the truth and her songs are vibrant and illustrious stories that are as compelling as those of Woody Guthrie, Lucinda Williams or Gram Parsons, of whom she is often compared."       Eric Harbadashian, MUSIC NEWS NASHVILLE
