Sugarland Headed to Splitsville?




Could Sugarland be splitting-up?? Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush have been spending a lot of time apart. Jennifer has been playing host and duet partner on “Duets” while Kristian has been off on his own writing. The duo took a hiatus after the tragic Indiana State Fair stage collapse, and there have been murmurs of a split ever since.
Well, according to Zap2It.com, it may be inevitable.
“Kristian [Bush] and I are very supportive of each other in that way,” says Nettles. “He’s been off and writing with everybody on the planet, and obviously I don’t have anything on the books right now as far as scheduled to go in, but I hope to be able to do that one day. And we both do actually, so we’ll see.

“I fell in love with country music at such a young age and just knew it was meant for me,” says Corey.  “This song really takes me back to my childhood, which we captured perfectly with the video.  I can’t wait for everyone to see it!” 
 
The video for Take Ya Back brings viewers a glimpse into Corey’s life at a young age.  Filmed in the heart of Music City, Corey relives the moments she cherished most growing up, listening to her father’s old records and her own personal favorite country classics.

Fans can look for the video to premiere this Friday, July 27th on Corey’s website and YouTube page.  Be sure to stay tuned for Corey’s cable spotlight, as the video is also set to be released to The Country Network, GAC, and CMT.
 
Penned by Corey and successful songwriters Beau Fuller and Cece DuBois, Take Ya Back has been receiving rave reviews since its radio release in June. It immediately charted at #71 on the Music Row Country Breakout chart, placing her at #7 on the Music Row’s Most Added Country Chart. This song captures Corey’s sweet and sassy sound and this honeysuckle hit is full of fiddles and steel guitar and is guaranteed to get toes tapping and fill up the dance floors across the country.

Produced by the International Bluegrass Music Association, World of Bluegrass is a cornerstone event that draws casual fans, working musicians, and industry tradespeople for a week that includes something for everybody in the bluegrass community: a business conference, trade show, panel discussions, tributes, masters’ workshops, a fiddle contest, a golf outing, an awards show, a festival, and jamming all week long.

Some of bluegrass music’s superstars will appear in the tribute sessions, panel discussions, and educational seminars being planned for the
WOB business conference. Highlights include…
§  On Monday, Sep. 24 at 1:30 p.m., the conference kicks off with a keynote speech by Missy Raines and Chris Jones.
§  The week continues with a session on Creative Music Arrangement featuring Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Bill Evans, and moderator Harry Stinson.
§  Claire Lynch, Buddy Greene, Ricky Skaggs, and Chris Jones will participate in The Doc Watson Hour, remembering the late guitar innovator with some of his own music.

On Wednesday, September 26, from 1:30-3:30 p.m., IBMA’s World of Bluegrass business conference will include a celebration, discussion and Q&A session dedicated to Will The Circle Be Unbroken. Released in 1972, this landmark recording brought Mother Maybelle Carter, Doc Watson, Earl Scruggs, Merle Travis, Vassar Clements, Bashful Brother Oswald Kirby, Norman Blake, Jimmy Martin, Roy Acuff, and others into a studio with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, a popular country-folk-rock group, to record a triple album that made music history. The recording was an irresistible bridge to bluegrass and traditional country music for rock audiences. Hosted by John McEuen of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, the celebration will also feature remarkable, rarely-seen photographs of the recording sessions, most shot by producer William McEuen.

World of Bluegrass ends each year on a high note with Fan Fest, a huge three-day indoor bluegrass concert at the Nashville Convention Center from Friday, Sep. 28 - Sunday, Sep. 30.

ARTIST NEWS: As part of a program called Operation HomeFront , Tim McGraw has the honor of presenting the keys to a mortgage free home to a wounded warrior or service member in need at each stop of the Brothers of the Sun Tour. It was a no-brainer for him to get involved as soon as they asked him because he says the recipients of the homes, “They put their life on the line, they put everything on the line. You can’t help every-body, but everybody that you do help it makes a difference.” Tim’s latest single, “Truck Yeah,” just became the highest debuting single of his career, and is continuing to move quickly up the charts.

BABY NEWS:  Rascal Flatts bassist and vocalist Jay DeMarcus and his wife Allison, welcomed their second child last month. The little boy is named, Dylan Jay DeMarcus. Dylan was born in Nashville, Tenn., at 4:02pm, weighing in at 7 pounds and 11 ounces at 20 ½ inches long. Dylan joins sister Madeline Leigh who was born December 17, 2010.

BENEFIT NEWS: Arista's Brad Paisley has partnered with Dollar General and Pepsi for the Tune In To Giving promotion, supporting the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.

CD RELEASES: Music City-based trio The Farm has planted the musical seeds that its members hope will blossom into an album that country fans adore. Released July 17 on the All In Records/Elektra Nashville label, the self-titled debut features 11 songs, including the act's hit, "Home Sweet Home," which was co-produced by The Farm's Nick Hoffman with acclaimed songwriter, Danny Myrick….New releases coming from Kix Brooks, Darius Rucker and Radney Foster… It’s been 20 years since Clinton Gregory last touched the Top 30, itself a rare feat for an independent label artist. His new CD - TOO MUCH AIN’T ENOUGH, is Clinton at his best. The CD echoes potently old-school pity party and a respectable, long-overdue return from an acclaimed hard-country prodigal—somewhere between the two, there’s a reason to raise a glass. Clinton is gearing up with the title track single. He just shot his video and is hitting the road with full steam. More info at clintongregory.com.

Legends In My Mind Volume 3: This Man Called Dallas

Legends In My Mind Volume 3: This Man Called Dallas

 

Midland, TX (July 25, 2012) - This Saturday, July 28th will mark the release of country recording artist Ken Goldsmith's latest studio effort, the third album in his trilogy Legends In My Mind. A tribute to legendary songwriter Dallas Frazier, his perviously released volumes also paid homage to those that have shaped and inspired Goldsmith's music career.

The album is another realization of a dream that Goldsmith had long ago laid to rest. Having built an empire of shops, offices, and warehouses - affectionately named 'Mudland' - and a successful drilling fluids company, he had since dropped the idea of becoming a country recording artist. "My employees asked me what they could do for me to make me happy on my 50th birthday... After much prayer and meditation on the subject, I realized not one material thing could make me happy. The one thing that made me happy was to sing."

This epiphany resulted in a crusade to make the most of that dream. Goldsmith began to seek inspiration within the music industry and quickly decided building a network of songwriters would be his best bet. "Although meeting the recording artist who had the big hits might be interesting, meeting the writers would be inspiring." Through his networking efforts, Goldsmith met and immediately connected with Frazier. "Dallas and I had very similiar childhood experiences. When I looked over his BMI catalog, I began to realize the majority of my favorite country songs from the early '60s and '70s were written by him."

Through Frazier, Goldsmith met Nashville Songwriters Association International's original founding member and past president Buddy Mize. He set out to create a compilation of Frazier's greatest accomplishments and, with Mize, penned the album's feature song, This Man Called Dallas.

Aside from achieving his dreams, Goldsmith has also gained many memories in the process. "Buddy and Dallas wrote a song the year I was born called Gonna Go Down to the River Once More. One of my fondest memories of all time will be of the day that Dallas, Buddy and I cut our version of the song at Gerry Peter's Midi Magic Studio in Bellevue, Tennesse - just outside of Music City."

Legends In My Mind Volume 3: This Man Called Dallas will be available for purchase on iTunes within the week.

Track Listing for Legends In My Mind Volume 3: This Man Called Dallas:
1. Mohair Sam - 2:32
2. Just For What I Am - 2:45
3. He Is My Everything - 3:20
4. Don't Anyone Make Love At Home Anymore - 2:48
5. There Goes My Everything - 3:32
6. I'm So Afraid Of Losing You Again - 3:14
7. Hank & Lefty Raised My Country Soul - 2:41
8. All I Have To Offer You Is Me - 3:11
9. Fourteen Carat Mind - 2:41
10. Then Who Am I - 2:31
11. If My Heart Had Windows - 2:32
12. Walk Softly On The Bridges - 3:15
13. Big Mable Murphy - 3:45
14. This Man Called Dallas - 3:48
15. Gonna Go Down The River Once More - 2:06

PATSY CLINE: CRAZY FOR LOVING YOU, ON FRIDAY, AUGUST 24, 2012

COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME ® AND MUSEUM TO OPEN
PATSY CLINE:  CRAZY FOR LOVING YOU, ON FRIDAY, AUGUST 24, 2012
 
Opening Festivities to Include Panel Discussion with Country Music Hall of Fame Member Harold Bradley, Charlie Dick, Julie Fudge, George Hamilton IV and Jan Howard; Concert Featuring Bradley, Jessi Alexander, Mandy Barnett, Striking Matches and Emily West; and More
 
 
           NASHVILLE, Tenn., July 25, 2012 – The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum will pay tribute to one of country music’s most iconic artists, the inimitable Patsy Cline, with Patsy Cline:  Crazy for Loving You, a biographical exhibit opening Friday, August 24, 2012, for a 10-month run in the museum’s East Gallery.  The exhibition will run through June 10, 2013.
 
            Opening weekend festivities will include an August 25 panel discussion featuring Cline’s husband, Charlie Dick, and daughter, Julie Fudge, Country Music Hall of Fame member Harold Bradley and singers George Hamilton IV and Jan Howard; an August 25 concert featuring Bradley, singer-songwriter Jessi Alexander, Always…Patsy Cline star and singer Mandy Barnett, duo Striking Matches and singer Emily West; and an August 26 screening of the documentary Patsy Cline:  Sweet Dreams Still.  The panel discussion and concert are included with museum admission and free for museum members; seating is limited and a program pass is required (visit www.countrymusichalloffame.org for complete details).  A detailed schedule of grand opening activities is below.
 
           The exhibit will also be accompanied by a beautiful 80-page companion book, titled Patsy Cline: Crazy for Loving You.  Published by the museum’s Country Music Foundation Press, the volume will include a foreword by artist Rosanne Cash and an essay by noted Cline authority Paul Kingsbury.  The book will be available in the Museum Store and at www.countrymusichalloffame.org.
              
           “Patsy Cline is an American music icon and perhaps the most accessible artist in country music history,” said Museum Director Kyle Young.  “Though she recorded for only eight years and made her last record nearly 50 years ago, her body of work—those classic torch songs and ballads of heartache—have continued to resonate with music fans of all genres.  While she considered herself a country singer, she was equally adept at pop stylings, and was a key influence in bringing the two genres closer stylistically in the 1960s.  The quintessential torch singer, she could wring every nuance of emotion from a lyric; and her prodigious vocal stylings and unique delivery have influenced scores of artists, including Loretta Lynn, Linda Ronstadt and Reba McEntire. 
 
           “Though her life was tragically cut short,” Young continued, “her classic recordings are timeless, alive and vibrant.  Our exhibit will not only explore Patsy’s musical contributions, but will also offer visitors a look at the woman behind the songs, the firecracker who overcame childhood hardships to emerge as one of the most important artists of the 20th century.  We are grateful to Patsy’s family and friends for sharing their mementos and memories and allowing us to tell this extraordinary tale.”
 
Patsy Cline:  Crazy for Loving You
 
           Born Virginia Patterson Hensley in Winchester, Virginia, on September 8, 1932, Patsy Cline became one of the most important artists in American music history, recording classics such as “Crazy,” “She’s Got You,” “I Fall to Pieces,” “Sweet Dreams (of You)” and many more before her untimely death in a plane crash on March 5, 1963.  Cline’s achievements were acknowledged formally with her 1973 induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame. 
 
            Employing costumes, personal possessions, vintage photographs, correspondence, career-spanning audio and video and more, Patsy Cline:  Crazy for Loving You will explore the life and impact of this incomparable artist.  The exhibition lets Cline tell her story largely in her own words, and its narrative draws extensively from the many letters Cline wrote to her family and her first fan club president, Treva Miller.  The correspondence offers a wealth of information about Cline’s background, touring and recording activities, and the challenges of balancing life as a performer with her roles as wife and mother.
 
            Upon entering the exhibit gallery, visitors will be able to read Patsy’s biography in her own hand, via text-panel reproductions of the bio Cline herself crafted in 1962.
 
           The centerpiece of the exhibit will be a powerful and moving film, created by museum staff, that includes new interviews with four Country Music Hall of Fame members—Harold Bradley, Brenda Lee, Willie Nelson and the Jordanaires’ Ray Walker—each of whom knew and worked with Cline; archival performance footage; and audio clips from Owen Bradley’s original three-track recordings of some of Patsy’s greatest performances.  For the first time, the public will be able to hear Cline’s spine-tingling vocals, isolated without instrumental accompaniment, on “Crazy,” “Sweet Dreams” and other classics. 
 
            The exhibit will also feature dozens of artifacts, including:
 
  • Hand-written letters from Cline to family and friends, including one to Miller dated November 9, 1955.  In it Patsy writes, “I’m married to a wonderful guy from Frederick, Md.…we live with mom until we can get a trailer.”
 
  • Cline’s collection of salt and pepper shakers, including a Japanese-made set of “she-devils” holding pitchforks; a set of “ladies’ lingerie” shakers; western-themed sets of tepee and leather “cowboy hat” shakers; a variety of animal-themed shakers featuring Siamese cats, dogs, turkeys and zebras; and more
 
  • Daughter Julie’s pink leatherette baby book, with entries handwritten by Patsy
 
  • Cline’s pink marble cigarette jar and lighter, hand carved in Italy
 
  • Patsy’s lacquered jewelry box and costume jewelry collection
 
  • Gold I.D. bracelet given by Patsy to her husband, Charlie.  The bracelet is engraved with the name ‘Charles Dick’ on the front, and on the back reads “Love, Virginia.”  The bracelet opens to reveal two photos of Patsy.
 
  • Harold Bradley’s 1961 datebook, spotlighting notable recording sessions with Cline
 
  • Patsy’s red cowgirl-style skirt and blouse, appliquéd with felt longhorn-steer and wagon-wheel motifs and embellished with rhinestones and leather fringe; the costume was designed by Patsy and sewn by her mother, Hilda Hensley
 
  • Elegant stage and evening wear, including Patsy’s gold lamé pants and matching ankle boots; and fur stole

The museum’s mission is the preservation of the history of country and related vernacular music rooted in southern culture.  With the same educational mission, the foundation also operates CMF Records, the museum’s Frist Library and Archive, CMF Press, Historic RCA Studio B and Hatch Show Print®.
