LUKE BRYAN AND THE BAND PERRY’S KIMBERLY PERRY WILL HOST SUMMER’S HOTTEST CONCERT EVENT, “CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL: COUNTRY’S NIGHT TO ROCK,” AIRING SEPTEMBER 17 ON THE ABC TELEVISION NETWORK

NASHVILLE – Luke Bryan and The Band Perry’s Kimberly Perry will team up to host the summer’s hottest television music event when the ABC Television Network airs “CMA Music Festival: Country's Night to Rock" on Monday, Sept. 17 (8:00-11:00 PM/ET). The special will once again be executive-produced by Robert Deaton.
“We have so much fun playing at CMA Music Festival,” said Bryan. “The entire town of Nashville turns into one big party and performing at LP Field becomes one of the best shows we play all year.”
"CMA Music Fest is special to The Band Perry because we love spending time with our fans,” said Perry. “We are excited to be a part of ABC's coverage of the four-day event, co-hosting the television special."
Filmed June 7-10, many of today's most exciting Country Music stars will hit the stage during a four-day party and celebration of America’s music. The annual event is unlike any other with 30 hours of autograph signings, 200 hours of live music, 450 artists and celebrities, and a party list of 65,000 avid, singing, dancing-till-dawn fans.
This is the eighth time ABC will broadcast this special – which invites the whole country to America's biggest Country Music bash. Artists appearing in the television special have not yet been announced.
Artists performing as part of the Nightly Concerts at LP Field during 2012 CMA Music Festival include Lauren Alaina, Jason Aldean, Bill Anderson, The Band Perry, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Glen Campbell, Eric Church, Brantley Gilbert, Hunter Hayes, Faith Hill, Randy Houser, Alan Jackson, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Love and Theft, The Mavericks, Martina McBride, Scotty McCreery, Ronnie Milsap, Kip Moore, David Nail, Jake Owen, Brad Paisley, Kellie Pickler, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Rogers, Gwen Sebastian, Blake Shelton, Steel Magnolia, Carrie Underwood, and Zac Brown Band. 
Bryan was nominated for CMA New Artist of the Year in 2010 and 2011. His most recent album is the Platinum-certified tailgates & tanlines, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, and features Platinum-certified digital singles “Country Girl (Shake It for Me)” and “I Don’t Want This Night to End”; and current smash “Drunk on You,” which recently hit 1 million downloads.
Perry is the lead singer of The Band Perry, a family trio with her brothers Reid and Neil. She won her first solo CMA Award in 2011 for Song of the Year for writing “If I Die Young.” The Band Perry won two additional CMA Awards last year including New Artist of the Year and Single of the Year (“If I Die Young”). The group’s Platinum-certified, self-titled debut album features the four-times-Platinum-certified digital single “If I Die Young” and two Gold-certified digital singles “All Your Life” and “You Lie.”  
Originally started as Fan Fair® in 1972, the legendary event has featured performances by every major star in the format. What started with 5,000 fans has grown to a daily attendance of more than 65,000 representing every state and 23 foreign countries.

The special also ranked No. 1 in its time slot with Women 18-34 (1.6/5). It gained more than one million viewers over 2010, drawing its second largest audience in six years (since 2005).

EDENS EDGE DEBUT ALBUM – DELUXE EDITION

CRACKER BARREL OFFERS UP THREE ADDITIONAL HELPINGS
ON EDENS EDGE DEBUT ALBUM – DELUXE EDITION


Free Digital Download Card for Trio’s Sassy Single, “Too Good To Be True,”
Available At All Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® Locations

Eden's EdgeLEBANON, Tenn. (June 1, 2012) – The Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® exclusive music program is set to release a deluxe edition of hot newcomers Edens Edge’s debut album.   The release of Edens Edge - Deluxe Edition coincides with Big Machine Records’ self-titled, standard edition - both will be available beginning June 12.  The Arkansas-bred band is comprised of lead vocalist Hannah Blaylock; harmony vocals, guitar and dobro player Dean Berner; and harmony singer, mandolin, banjo and guitar player Cherrill Green. Collectively, they penned half of the songs on the project as well as three exclusive tracks for the deluxe version which will be available at all Cracker Barrel locations and at crackerbarrel.com.  This marks the first time the brand has ever released the deluxe version on the same day as the artists’ nationwide release. 

“Growing up in small towns, we’re huge fans of home cooking and a family-style environment. Now that we’re on the road most of the year, we often find ourselves seated at Cracker Barrels across the country. It’s so exciting that one of our favorite places has asked us to be a part of their exclusive music program and give our mutual fans an extra helping of our favorite songs,” said Green.

“Our working with Cracker Barrel is a perfect fit. We started pickin’ and singing music with friends and family on front porches in our home state of Arkansas. And they’re a lot like the front porches at Cracker Barrel stores that we see across the country.  Every time we stop at a Cracker Barrel it feels like home to us!” said Blaylock.

Beginning June 2 – and in conjunction with the launch – all Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® locations will distribute digital download cards, while supplies last.  Each card is redeemable for one free download of Edens Edge’s sassy new single, “Too Good to Be True.”  The song is a follow-up to their Top 20 hit, “Amen,” and exhibits the duality of Edens Edge’s musical influences and sound.

“The free digital download will give Cracker Barrel guests a great taste of the sound they’ll find on the upcoming Edens Edge – Deluxe Edition CD,” said Julie Craig, Cracker Barrel Marketing Manager.  “It’s a great way to enjoy a sample of what’s to come when their CD debuts in a few weeks. We hope our guests will like what they hear and then stop by to pick up the CD.”

“We are so thrilled fans will be able to get our new single ‘Too Good To Be True,’ on a free download card in stores before the album hits the shelves. And for those who aren’t as familiar with us, the song is a great sample of the ‘Edge’ side of Edens Edge. Fans can definitely expect to see a lot of versatility with that country roots sound to connect them all on the Edens Edge – Deluxe Edition CD,” said Berner.

1.  Amen (Skip Black, Hannah Blaylock, Catt Gravitt, Gerald O'Brien)

In April, Eric Church: The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour was named No. 11 on Pollstar’s 2012 Worldwide Ticket Sales Chart for the first quarter, confirming the tour was one of the highest-attended across all genres of music from January through March.
 
Not only has The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour received huge response from fans, but it has also been met with praise by many outlets including The Boston Globe who wrote, "With his vivid songs, frenetic performances, and outsider allure, Church is a refreshing figure on the country scene." The Reading Eagle added, “It’s been said a transcendent concert can resemble a religious experience, but this took it to a new level… the 34-year-old frequently exploded from the mic stand, arms pounding his chest, screaming at the crowd to boost an energy level that pyrotechnics and explosions had already elevated… the energy roared.”
 
Moreover, Church has tied The Blood Sweat & Beers Tour to a cause that will help those in need. Teaming up with Tickets-For-Charity.com, he is giving fans the opportunity to donate part of their purchase price to their favorite charity, and his partnering cause, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and its mission to find a cure for diabetes.

KRIS KRISTOFFERSON RAVE ABOUT THE COLLECTION

DUE SEPTEMBER 2012 ON SAGUARO ROAD RECORDS

Waylon Jennings: Goin' Down Rockin' - The Last RecordingsNashville, TN (May 31, 2012) -- One of Nashville’s most anticipated albums continues to build a heady buzz as early tracks from Goin’ Down Rockin’: The Last Recordings of Waylon Jennings are previewed to longtime friends and fans of the outlaw country legend.  The songs have been met with bittersweet excitement and warmly embraced by those who knew him best.  Recorded shortly before his death in 2002, Goin’ Down Rockin’ will be available on September 11 (Saguaro Road Records).

Rosanne Cash marveled, “There was never an artist like Waylon Jennings. It's such a joy to hear his honest voice, his integrity and his quintessential badassness on this new record. What a great thing for posterity that these recordings exist and were finished by Robby Turner with such care and honor.”

Kris Kristofferson, who toured alongside Jennings in the Highwaymen, added, “The pure beauty of Waylon's voice - unlike any other I ever heard - has the powerful honesty and heart of the man himself. Like his outlaw companions Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash, they broke the mold when they made him. I do believe ‘I Do Believe’ is the only one of these I've heard before, and I could listen to it forever."

Jennings wrote 11 of the 12 songs on Goin’ Down Rockin’, 11 of which have never been released before.  He recorded them with his accompanist Robby Turner, but died before they could be completed.  A decade later, Turner painstakingly finished the tracks to Jennings’ specifications, working with musicians such as Reggie Young, Richie Albright and tour mate Tony Joe White.

One of the all time greatest country music vocalists, Jennings was also the founder of the Outlaw movement, received two Grammy Awards, and multiple Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music awards.  11 of his albums hit #1 on the country charts, with 16 #1 singles.  In all, 54 of Jennings’ albums have charted and more than 100 singles cracked the country and pop charts.  He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2001.
