Nashville, Tenn. (July 10, 2012) - GRAMMY Award-winning country music star Billy Dean can add a check to his bucket list.  This past weekend at the Grand Ole Opry, Dean was asked to join the Old Crow Medicine Show onstage to help sing on the group's smash song, "Wagon Wheel."

"I'm such a huge fan of those guys," says Dean.  "I'm so honored to have been asked to sing with them on one of my favorite songs.  I'm not kidding... 'Wagon Wheel' is the ringtone on my phone!"

"Backstory: Kenny Chesney"

"Backstory: Kenny Chesney" -- Football's Loss Was Music's Gain

(NASHVILLE, TENN.) July 9, 2012 – “It was literally like the hand of God going, ‘Okay, this is why you can’t play sports anymore,’” says Kenny Chesney when he redirected his drive and ambition from sports to music as a college freshman. Backstory: Kenny Chesney, premiering Thursday, July 12, 10:00 p.m./ET on Great American Country (GAC) tells Chesney’s remarkable story -- through those closest to him including NFL coaches Sean Payton and Jon Gruden and tour mate Jake Owen -- of a football fanatic and the detour that led him to become one of the most successful artists in contemporary music. Many never before seen photographs from the singer’s personal collection are included in this one-hour biodoc.
Although Chesney scored his first Top 10 hit in 1995, what followed was valuable time spent on the road and in the studio learning his craft. “I had a greatest hits album with 17 songs on it and nobody knew who I was,” he recalls. “But they knew the songs.” After some soul searching Chesney admitted to himself that he was not going to be one of his heroes. “There were a lot of guys trying to be George Strait at that time and I was one of them,” he says. “I can’t be somebody else and still be successful. I had to get better as an artist, a songwriter and a musician because if I didn’t, I was going to have my little run and that was going to be it. There was something inside of me that was not going to let me settle and it’s still there.”
The lifelong sports fan began treating everything he did like an athlete, even taking a trainer on the road with him for two years. It was a metamorphosis that affected every aspect of his career. “My song sense changed, the way Buddy (Cannon) and I recorded our records changed, the way we mixed them changed.” The island influence in his lifestyle translated into his writing and performing and it suited him well. The amazing transformation grew with the release of the quadruple platinum LP, No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problem in 2002. By 2004 Chesney was selling out stadiums and remains one of the few artists in any genre to still be doing so today.
“This is definitely a more intimate look at how Kenny Chesney rose from a being a member of the pack to one of music’s top superstars,” says GAC GM/SVP Sarah Trahern. “We appreciate his willingness to share his stories and his personal photographs with our viewers.”
It’s been 17 years, but the eight-time Entertainer of the Year winner shows no signs of slowing down. He recently released Welcome to the Fishbowl and continues to sell out stadiums on his Brothers of the Sun tour with Tim McGraw. “I’m not going to sit here and say I want to win two more Entertainer of the Year awards or sell another 30 million records, but I do. But I’m not going to tell you that’s incredibly important to me. I want to get better at what I do; I just want to write the best songs I can and put on the best show out there and that other stuff will take care of itself.”

Love And Theft's Self-Titled Forthcoming Record Is Available For Pre-Order Now

Nashville, TN - ACM-nominated country duo Love and Theft (Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson) are anxious for people to hear their self-titled RCA Nashville debut album, due out July 24. To preview tracks and pre-order the new album, click on this link: http://bit.ly/OZyKO0
“This record represents the way we sound live,” says Stephen. Eric adds, “You get the warmth and the emotion of the players vibing together in the room. We feel like we have made the record we’ve always wanted to make and we can’t wait to find out what people think about it.”
“Angel Eyes” is Love and Theft’s lead single from their forthcoming record. The song, co-written by Jeff Coplan, Eric Paslay and Eric Gunderson, jumped into the Top 10 last week on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and Country Aircheck and is climbing the charts. The track has sold over 350K digital downloads and the music video for “Angel Eyes” has received over 1.2 million views on VEVO.com.
Love and Theft are out on the road this summer with Brad Paisley’s Virtual Reality World Tour. “We’re playing on the ‘Virtual Opry’ stage,” Eric says, “which is a pretty real depiction of what the Grand Ole Opry stage looks like in Nashville. It’s been great fun.”
Stephen adds, “We’ve learned a lot from the artists we’ve opened for over the last few years like Brad, Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw, and Taylor Swift. It’s been a really cool experience. Hopefully, one day we’ll be able to show other artists the same generosity that’s been shown to us.”

HAYSTACK – Irish Folk and more

HAYSTACK – Irish Folk and more

Samstag, den 19. Mai – eine Straßenbahn-U-Bahn-Busreise lang – machte ich mich auf den Weg nach Mödling bei Wien. Schon lange einmal wollte ich das dort befindliche Kulturrestaurant BÜHNE MAYER kennen lernen. Ruhig gelegen in der Fußgängerzone, schöner Gastgarten, aber am meisten interessierte mich natürlich das musikalische Angebot.

An besagtem Samstag spielte eine mir schon lange bekannte und sehr beliebte Folkband namens HAYSTACK (www.haystack.at), die schon zweimal das St. Patrick’s Day Céilí in Wien für die irische Tanzgruppe Cumann Céilí Vín gespielt hat (www.cumannceilivin.at).

In eben dieser Location, der Bühne Mayer, haben sie ihre zweite CD live eingespielt. Nach vielen widrigen Umständen war diese endlich im April 2011 fertig zur Präsentation. Natürlich habe ich sie vor Ort erstanden, aber nur mehr als Draufgabe auf das Konzert von diesem Abend.

15 Tracks befinden sich auf der CD:

01. Cunla / Eina / Cacak: irisches Volkslied in ursprünglicher Form, dann in
Steirischem Dialekt und zuletzt noch mit serbischem Jig gemischt – sehr
  1. Moraima: in galizisch gesungenes Loblied auf ein schönes Mädchen.
  2. The Harvest Set: drei Jigs
  3. Arbeytsloze Marsch / The Irish Lady: ein Protestlied aus den 30ern in Polen und gespielt wie ein irischer Jig.
  4. The Nightingale: ein schönes Liebeslied.
  5. Flat World / Zelda: zwei bretonische Tanzstücke
  6. Rattlin’ Roarin’ Willie / The Butterfly: Von keinem geringeren als dem schottischen Dichter Robert Burns stammt dieser Text, angeschlossen folgt ein irischer Slip Jig.
  7. Die Mezinke: ein chassidischer Hochzeitstanz
  8. The Spanish Lady / Kesh Jig: Irische Traditionals
  9. Wou is daham / Mazurka Augurka: der erste Teil stammt von der österreichischen Band “Aniada a noar”, angeschlossen eine bretonische Mazurka.
  10. Polka Set: drei irische Polkas
  11. Follow me up to Carlow: traditionelles Lied von den Aufständen in Irland
  12. Heyser Bulgar: ein Klezmer-Tanzstück aus Bulgarien
  13. The Star of the County Down: irisches Liebeslied.
  14. Johnny I hardly knew yeh: ein anonymes Antikriegslied aus dem 19. Jhd,. in Nordamerika.

So multinational wie diese CD war auch der Abend, es ging quer durch die Folklore Europas, von Ungarn, Bulgarien, Polen, Serbien, Bretagne, England, Irland bis in die grüne Steiermark (woher der Bandleader Leo stammt).

Die CD ist erhältlich auf allen Livekonzerten, im Heureka-Folkclub und natürlich auch auf der Homepage zu bestellen.

Wynonna Judd – The Other Side

Wynonna Judd – The Other Side

1. When Love Starts Talkin' 3:09 2. The Other Side 3:55 3.Love Like That 3:58 4. Kind of Fool Love Makes 4:34 5. Troubled Heart and a Troubled Mind 3:12 6. Don't You Throw That Mojo on Me 3:27 7. Come Some Rainy Day 3:15 8. Love's Funny That Way 4:46 9. The Wyld Unknown 3:34 10. Why Now 4:50 11. We Can't Unmake Love 3:30 12. Always Will 4:52

Das vierte Studioalbum von Wynonna Judd, das sie 1997 veröffentlichte, brachte ihr Gold und Platz 5 in den amerikanischen Country-Albumcharts. Ihre kraftvolle Stimme harmoniert perfekt mit den energiegeladenen Songs, bei denen jeder Fuß gleich mitwippen muss. Genauso passend ist diese Powerstimme aber auch bei den gefühlvollen, ruhigeren Songs auf diesem Album. Zwei Besonderheiten sind noch zu erwähnen. Die Ballade We Can't Unmake Love ist ein Duett mit John Berry, Don't You Throw That Mojo on Me singt sie gemeinsam mit Ihrer Mutter Naomie Judd, mit der sie zwischen 1983 und 1991 zu den erfolgreichsten Duos (The Judds) der Countrymusik gehörte.

Reggie Shaw Kicks Music Row DisCovery Award

Reggie Shaw Kicks Off Debut Single with Music Row DisCovery Award
Reggie Shaw, is taking fans for a heartfelt ride with his first national single, Someone I Can't Live Without.
Penned by Music Row chart topping songwriters Eric Durrance, Marc Beeson and Don Pfrimmer, Someone I Can’t Live Without is an anthem about learning to let go of what doesn't have meaning in life and making room for what does. Packed with solid production, resonating lyrics, and addictive melodies, this debut is sure to hit home with country fans across the U.S.
Radio and industry critics are giving Reggie rave reviews, including earning the DisCovery Award from renowned music critic, Robert K. Oermann.
“…This pulsing country rocker boasts a tight arrangement, a clear production and straightforward drive.  His vocal about facing a complicated romance rings with conviction. A winner.” – Robert K. Oermann, Music Row
“Reggie Shaw is an outstanding talent who understands how to connect with an audience… This song could be the start of something special.” – Adam Smith, Music Director at KRVN, Lexington, NE
“Reggie Shaw has a star quality not found in many people. He is a unique talent.  We have seen his music ‘move the meter’ so to speak in our market!” –Scott O’Rourke, Program Director at KRNY, Kearney/Grand Island, NE
Reggie Shaw, raised in Overton, Nebraska, found his passion for country music during a life changing event. At the young age of 14, Reggie was hit by a car while riding his bike. After nine surgeries, he was introduced to the "powerful and meaningful" message of country music through Garth Brook’s hit, “The Dance.” With a full recovery and encouragement from his family, Reggie pursued his musical talent and discovered his uncanny ability for songwriting and performing. During high school, he entered such competitions as Galaxy of Stars Talent Search and the Colgate Country Showdown where he was awarded glowing media recognition for his talents. Reggie moved to Nashville soon after graduation, where he had the fortunate opportunity to meet songwriter and future friend, Eric Durrance. The meeting proved beneficial as Eric and Reggie have wrote over 48 songs together, many of which are featured on the Wynnesong Records debut album, Living in the Fast Lane.

INTERLAKEN Party bis der Arzt kommt!

19. Internationales Trucker & Country-Festival Interlaken (Schweiz)
vom Fr. 29.Juni bis So. 1.Juli 2012

Das Trucker & Country Festival in Interlaken, welches 2012 bereits zum 19. Mal stattfand, lockt Jahr für Jahr über 50.000 Fans an und gehört damit zu den größten Country-Festivals auf der Welt und zum größten Event dieser Art in Europa. Auch wir fahren schon einige Jahre zu diesem Event weil es uns einfach nicht mehr los läßt. Wenn man einmal dort war muß man einfach immer wieder hin. Obwohl die Anreise für uns Oberösterreicher mit ca. 630 km auch nicht gerade gering ist, ist es uns das auf jeden Fall wert.

Zur Übernachtung steht ein riesiges Campingareal für Wohnwägen, Wohnmobile oder Zelte zur Verfügung. Darauf gibt es ein eigenes Frühstückszelt und ein Duschzelt mit Duschkabinen welches für mindestens 80 Personen auf einmal Platz

Schon immer waren die Veranstalter sehr darauf bedacht große Namen nach Interlaken zu holen – was ihnen auch im Jahr 2012 wieder gelungen ist. Feinste Country-Musik, gespickt mit Rock’n’Roll bis Blues, bestimmten das heurige
Musikprogramm welches sich auf ein riesiges Festzelt und 4 Außenbühnen im Westerndorf verteilte. Für jeden echten Country-Fan ein wahrer Leckerbissen mit über 30 Bands aus den USA, der Schweiz und dem übrigen Europa.

Die Festival-Highlights 2012:
Tanya Tucker / USA
Terri Clark / CAN Interview Terri Clark
Burns & Poe / USA Interview Burns & Poe
Marco Gottardi & the Silver Dollar Band / CH
Kim Carson & Ron Hotstream (USA)
Scooter Lee (USA)
Ralph & the Therapists (USA)
Country Sisters/CZ ( Country Sisters - You Can Make Me Happy  ), Heavy Load/D, Big Dig/D, Rodeo Ranchers/CH, Andy Martin/CH, The Fires/CH, Daddy and the Willyshakers/CH und viele mehr.
Es gab wieder viel zu entdecken am diesjährigen Trucker & Country-Festival. Nicht nur die Truck Meile mit bis zu 1400 Trucks oder der Motorbike-Bereich mit Shows, Attraktionen, Fighters Corner und Biker Parties, sondern auch das letztes Jahr neu präsentierte und weiter ausgebaute Tipi-Dorf oder das neue authentische Südstaaten-Camp der „Mosby’s Gray Ghosts/43rd Battalion Virginia Cavalry“ gab es zu bestaunen.

Weiters auch ein breites Angebot für Line Dancer. Heuer erstmals mit einer Line Dance Night mit DJs und über 600 m2 Tanzfläche. Am Freitag mit Special Guest Star: SCOOTER LEE / USA.

Das große Westerndorf bietet mit über 100 Verkaufs- und Verpflegungsständen, Bars und Shops genug Auswahl für durstige oder hungrige Cowgirls & Cowboys. Weiters fanden im Westerndorf der bereits traditionelle Trucker-Gottesdienst (heuer
mit Taufe), eine Trucker-Hochzeit, Cheerleaders und vieles mehr statt!
Der 3-Tages-Festivalpass für CHF 110 (ca. 90 €) ist zwar nicht gerade wenig, er ist es aber allemal wert, wenn man bedenkt was hier an den drei Tagen geboten wird.

Begleitet von viel Sonnenschein und hohen Temperaturen begann am FREITAG den 29.Juni um 18.30 Uhr das Festival. Der Höhepunkt an diesem Tag war um 20.00 Uhr die „Country Ladie`s Night“ im großen Festzelt welches für bis zu 5000 Fans Platz bietet. Im Vorprogramm die Country Sisters, sechst attraktive Girls aus Tschechien welche hauptsächlich durch ihr Outfit bei den Männern für Begeisterung sorgten. Um 21 Uhr dann das erste Highlight des Abends, Terri Clark / CAN welche mit gutem und rockigen Songmaterial das Festzelt so richtig zum Kochen brachte. Gleich anschließend um 23 Uhr dann Tanja Tucker / USA mit ihrer unverkennbaren souligen Stimme. Sie brachte die allermeisten ihrer bekannten Songs. Ihre Show war nett, freundlich, professionell, unterhaltsam, nicht langweilig, aber auch nicht spannend! Die Bessere an diesem Abend, eindeutig Terri Clark. Sie wirkte frischer und spontaner als Tucker, hatte gutes, rockiges Songmaterial im Gepäck, orientierte sich an Shania Twain und gewann viele neue Fans.

Am SAMSTAG begann das Musikprogramm bereits um 11 Uhr vormittags. Auf insgesamt 4 Bühnen im Westerndorf gab es eine Menge an Music zu hören. Einige Bands kannte man schon aus den Vorjahren, andere wiederum traten zum
ersten Mal in Interlaken auf. Country von soft bis rockig, modern bis traditionell, Bluegrass, Rockabilly, Hillbilly oder Rock`n Roll gab`s zu hören. Für jeden Musikgeschmack war sicherlich etwas dabei.

Der Abend im großen Festzelt stand dann unter dem Motto „American Country Night“. Es begann um 20 Uhr Marko Gotthardi & The Silver Dollar Band / CH welche auch schon mal am Donauinselfest in Wien zu Gast waren. Um 20.30 Uhr folgten dann Burns & Poe ein interessantes Duo aus den USA. Keith Burns arbeitete früher unter dem Namen Trick Pony mit Heidi Newfield zusammen. Um 22.30 Uhr dann die bereits sehnlichst erwarteten Bellamy Brothers / USA. Obwohl sie schon das neunte Mal in Interlaken dabei waren begeistern sie immer noch das Publikum. Viele kommen nur ihretwegen nach Interlaken. Zum Ausklang gab´s dann noch mal die Country Sisters / CZ zu sehen und zu hören bevor um ca. 2 Uhr das Musikprogramm endete.

Doch es dauerte nur einige Stunden dann ging es schon wieder weiter. Am SONNTAG startete das Musikprogramm bereits um 9 Uhr mit „The Jacky`s“ aus der Schweiz bei der Bühne 1 im Westerndorf. Wer wollte konnte dann um 10 Uhr
beim Trucker Gottesdienst mit Taufe dabei sein. Weiter an diesem Tag zu hören, Kim Carson & Ron Hotstream/USA, Big Dig/D, Blue Side of Town/CH, Bluegrass Stuff/I, Desert Rose/CH, Daddy & the Willyshakers/CH und noch einige mehr! Leider am Sonntag dann abrupte Abkühlung und starker Regen, wodurch das Treiben im Westerndorf etwas früher als geplant sein Ende fand.

Rückblickend aber wieder ein tolles Event das in Europa seinesgleichen sucht. Man kann schon gespannt sein was im nächsten Jahr zum 20ig-Jährigem Jubiläum auf uns wartet. Wir jedenfalls werden wieder dabei sein wenn vom 28. - 30. Juni 2013 das 20. Internationale Trucker & Country Festival in Interlaken/CH stattfindet.

Keep it country!

Intervew with Flynville Train, Nashville 07.06.2012

H.D. Where did the name Flynnville Train come from?

Bryan: The Name comes from the last Name Flynn, me and my brother Brent Flynn, we come from Central Indiana where there is a lot of rural towns, a lot of farm communities around. The last Names of the Towns have a lot of „villes“ in it. Like Joseph, our Bass player, is from Portville Indiana, that’s just a good example. The Train part came from rehearsing at my house at the Outskirts of the Town. The Townspeople could hear us rehearsing all thru the Town. They always told us at the Grocery Store, it sounds like a Train coming thru Town when you guys are rehearsing. Thats where Flynville Train came from.

H.D. Have you known each other for a long time?

Bryan: Flynnville Train has been together for 12 years.

H.D. Are you still under Management from Toby Keith?

Tommy: No, not since about three years. Trisha Walker is our current manager.
We had a good working Relationship with them, it just wasn’t the right situation for us. So we stepped out and tried to venture on our own, which is what we’re doing now. We created another album about two years ago, so now we are working on getting it out to the People. We put a new team of People together and we feel really good about it. People that will allow us to be ourselves and let us express what we have to express and give to the world.

H.D. Are you still performing with or for Toby Keith?

Bryan: No, we don t, we’re just good friends.

H.D. Tell us something about your Music Style.

Brent: It’s pretty much up tempo, Southern Rock Guitar oriented most of the time, it just depends on the song. Everything we do, be it lyrically or musically, we belive in it. We try to do mostly good time stuff, something that makes us feel good. We figure, if it makes us feel good, hopefully it will make everyone else feel good too.

Tommy: We try not to bind ourselves with Genre, we have a lot of different
Influences, from Classic Rock to Classic Country to Bluegrass. When we put
our music toghether, we don’t have any conversations or think about what
Genre this would fit in. It’s us, that’s what you get.

H.D. Who are your musical Influences?

Brent: Mine started when I was just a little kid, I listened to tons of Elvis, the
Beatles, their guitar influences, Scotty Moore, which was Elvis’ first guitar
player. Me and Bryans Father, Marty Stuart, George Jones, and of course, since I grew up in the 70’s and 80’s, Classic Rock, stuff you don’t hear today as much.

Tommy: For me, my first musical Influence was my Father. He’s a Drummer as well.
I grew up watching him play. We all can say that, we all come from
musical familys. But that was my greatest Influence. I fell into Classic Rock,
then I lived in the Blues World for a while, I really got into traditional type Blues Music and the Shuffles. Then I landed with these guys.

Joseph: My Influences where Rush and Lynyrd Skynyrd

H.D. How do you experience the CMA Fest?

Brent: Lots of Traffic! Seriously, we enjoy it a lot, this week we’re playing several
Places, from Tootsies to Lime Light, Honky Tonks, just Downtown
Broadway. We were in the Parade and really had a good time there.

Tommy: The greatest part of what CMA Fest is, it is all for the Fans. The Country
Music Industry is the greatest, we have the greatest Fans of all, and we are
here to celebrate that and give something back to them, because without
our Fans, we would be nothing. There wouldn’t be any CMA, Nashville
would be only a dot on the map.

Bryan: Yesterday, we were in the Parade. We’ve been gone for a couple of
Years, but when you are going down in the Parade and there are People
standing there holding Signs with your Name on it, with Question
Marks, when are you coming to the UK, that kind of thing. We’ve made
a few Fans over the last few Years and they haven’t forgotten us. I got
Goosebumps watching that. It makes you feel nice.

H.D. You have been at CMA Fest before?

Tommy: Yes, this is our sixth time here, it’s always a blast.

H.D. In July you will appear at a Festival in Poland, are you going anywhere
else in Europe?

Tommy: Last year we played at Craponne, France, that was our first Experience
outside of the United States. It was such a wonderful Experience, we
found we had a whole Fanbase there that we didn’t even realise existed.
We are very excited about exploring that even more, playing Overseas,
in Europe, wherever Internationally. We are so blessed, to have the Opportunity to do that.

H.D. You are working on a new CD, when will it be released?

Tommy: Well, we have the CD that we finished two years ago, but it hasn’t actually
Been released or marketed, we still have a few technical things to finish it
up in the Studio, so we are looking at early 2013 for it to be released. I’ m sure you’ll see a single released from it this Summer. Of course it is ailable
online, if somebody wants to check it out for a Review. On I-Tunes, or go to Flynnvilletrain.com to Review the Music.

H.D. Can you say something about the Songs on this CD?

Bryan: We wrote a lot of these Songs about our past Experiences, our Lives, Family, Fathers, Grandparents, just growing up. We don’t pretend to be great Songwriters but I think if you write honestly about yourself and the People around you, you can write Songs. Instead of trying to make up Ideas coming from nowhere. I found it very comforting and exciting to write about an Experience, whether it’s your Father, your Grandfather or Grandmother or just anybody in your Family or Friends. We put a lot of work into it, but it was very gratifying for us to write all these Songs that are on this Record. And I’m excited about writing some more. I can’t wait for the whole World to hear it.

Tommy: This Record kind of sums up where we are, who we are and where we
come from at this point of our Careers and it is very personal to us.
We did put a lot of work into it and like Bryan said, we can’t wait for the
whole World to listen to it.

H.D. Do you have any other Projects for the Future?

Tommy: Yea, actually, the Album we were just referring to, is actually done for the
most part. But we are currently working on the next, we’re always
working on new Material and getting ready for the next Round. I look to
that sometime next Year to have another Album to present or at least a

H.D. Are you going on a Tour here in the US before you go to Poland?

Tommy: Yes we are, we’ll play at a lot of Fairs and Festivals, we’ll go to Jordan
New York, week after next. We play a lot on the East Coast, we are from
the Midwest but it seems we get a lot more work on the East Coast. We
have a lot of Fans out there and we like it there too.

H.D. Is there anything you would like for People to know about you?

Bryan: We’re just regular People that love playing Music and we would like to
Entertain the way we would like to be Entertained. We’re just Blue Collar guys from the Midwest and we are fortunate enough to be playing Music
and to be living a Dream that we always wanted. That’s Success in itself.

Brent: It’s pretty much like Bryan said, outside of that we do our own thing, like me, I like Cars, get my Hands dirty.

Tommy: I like to Fish and just be out in the Woods.

Bryan: Me and Joseph like to ride our Harleys, and I like to Fish with Tommy,
we have not had the chance yet this Year, so we are looking forward to
