JOHNNY HORTON ON DVD

AT LAST! JOHNNY HORTON ON DVD
Bear Family Release TV and Concert Collection
  
Who would have thought, 52 years after his death, that we'd be seeing Johnny Horton perform some of his great hit songs especially, when Bear Family began work on the artist's LP box sets back in the 1980s, only two videos were trading hands among collectors. Now comes a set that comprises tv appearances, performances on the Ozark Jubilee and a concert alongside a couple of additional items.

JOHNNY HORTON  I'm A Fishin' Man (BCD 20120 AT)
TV Performances - I'm A Fishin' Man; The Electrified Donkey; The Train With the Rhumba Beat; Old Gobbler; The Mansion You Stole; Don Rovin'; Johnny Reb (promo);
Ozark Jubilee Performances (1959/1960) - Sal's Got A Sugarlip; Johnny Reb; I'm Ready If You're Willing; Johnny Reb; Sink The Bismark; All For The Love Of A Girl; When It's Springtime In Alaska; Comanche (The Brave Horse); Be Honest With Me (with EDDY ARNOLD and MOLLY BEE); Johnny Freedom;
Movie Trailers - North To Alaska (trailer); North To Alaska (news item); Commancheros (news item);
Live Show In Detroit (September 1960) - Sal's Got A Sugarlip; The Same Old Tale The Crow Told Me; The Battle Of New Orleans; North To Alaska; Sink The Bismark;
Audio Bonus Tracks - North To Alaska; Go North!; North To Alaska.

The DVD kicks off with the tv slots, with the first - I'm  A Fishin' Man - endorsing Johnny Horton's great love of the outdoor activity which earned him the nickname "The Singing Fisherman". It was also the ideal song for the sponsorship of his first television show, Fishing Fun, which aired on Los Angeles' KLAC-TV in early 1951. Then comes performances recorded during the period 1951-54 though Colin Escott (who provides the well detailed notes in the accompanying booklet) ponders the actual date and location, whether in Los Angeles, Shreveport or East Texas. Strangely The Electrified Donkey (written by Ferlin Husky), although performed in this period, was never recorded by Horton until 1959. The Train With The Rhumba Beat and The Mansion You Stole were songs he recorded for Mercury, prior to chart success coming his way when he signed with Columbia, and throughout he shows himself as a natural tv performer. Finally, one of Columbia songs, Johnny Reb, is here presented as a promo video though where it was shown is a mystery!

Johnny Horton made several appearances on Springfield's Ozark Jubilee, the first nationally televised country music show (by then titled Jubilee USA), his debut appearance (probably) being on February 7, 1959 when he performed his first number one, When It's Springtime In Alaska. Other chart songs performed are Sal's Got A Sugarlip, Johnny Reb and Sink The Bismark, although another song - All For The Love Of A Girl, recorded for Mercury - didn't attain chart status but is arguably among the most well known of the singer's earliest titles. These performances present the chance to see Horton's accompanying trio, headed up by Horton's manager Tillman Franks (bass) and included (at different times) Tommy Tomlinson (guitar) and Jerry Kennedy (electric bass), the latter who later became Mercury Records' head man in Nashville. Also seen are the show's various hosts, Bobby Lord, Red Foley and Eddy Arnold, the latter accompanying Horton, and other guest Molly Bee, on Gene Autry's Be Honest With Me.

The DVD's final session presents Johnny Horton on stage, filmed by a home movie camera at the Michigan State Fair in September 1960, just a couple of months before the car accident that took his life at the tragically early age of 35 years. Here he's seen more relaxed than the tv appearances and delights the crowds with his hits The Battle Of New Orleans (which topped both Billboard's pop and country charts, remaining number one for ten weeks in the latter) and Sink The Bismark as well as previewing North To Alaska, another chart topper that wasn't released until after his death.

In addition to Horton's performances, the DVD also has the trailer for North To Alaska, alongside news items on that and another movie The Commancheros, and concludes with non-commercial audio versions of North To Alaska and Go North.

A remarkable collection of clips that, for the first time, allows Johnny Horton to be seen as a performer and, apart from as few technical glitches (not too surprising considering the age of the film and all being non-professionally recorded), are remarkable good quality. And, accompanying Colin Escott's informative notes, the set's 24 page booklet features some stage shots, reproduction of album covers, and 13 full colour photographs taken on a 1959 Louisiana fishing trip with buddy Johnny Cash.

Donna Cunningham Don’t Tell Me That You’re Gone

DONNA CUNNINGHAM’S

SUPER NEW SINGLE

“DON’T TELL ME THAT YOU'RE GONE"

(Nashville, TN-8-31-12) Donna Cunningham’s new single, “Don’t Tell Me That You’re Gone,” is by far the best song that she has ever recorded.  As you listen to her sing her heart out about the man she loves, not wanting him to leave, she will make you a believer in every word of this song. They say there is a song for every singer and that when they find that song, it is a lifelong marriage for both.  Donna has found her treasure in music, and her performance has made her the keeper of this ballad. 

She has given her heart and soul to this song, and I promise you that when you are through listening, you will know why every artist tries to find their special song that will become their own, and Donna has done just that. 

Now the test of music will be when each of you review her song and make your own decision to play her music as you have in the past.   Donna thanks you for your constant support and hopes with all of her heart that you will love this song also. We need & value your input, so please let us know your thoughts. 

“Don’t Tell Me That Your Gone” has found its’ home, in the heart of Donna Cunningham, and there it will live forever.

Miranda Lambert TV Series Lands at NBC




Apparently, one country superstar isn't enough for NBC. According to Deadline.com, the Peacock network has signed on for a family-friendly drama to be executive-produced by Miranda Lambert.
Inspired by Miranda's experiences growing up, the series centers on a couple who run a highly successful detective agency while also trying to raise two teenagers. Miranda and her younger brother, Luke, grew up in Lindale, Texas, where their dad, Rick, a retired police officer, became a private investigator in partnership with mom, Bev, who will serve as a consultant on the TV project.
The series will be written by Chad Hodge, who along with Aaron Kaplan, Miranda and Miranda's manager, Marion Kraft, will be executive producers. The project moves from ABC Family, where it was slated last year with a different writer.

Kimberly Williams-Paisley Joins ABC's 'Nashville'




Brad Paisley's wife, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, who starred for eight seasons on the ABC comedy "According to Jim," is returning to the network this fall in the highly-anticipated drama, "Nashville."Deadline.com reports that Kim will be featured in "a multi-episode arc" as Peggy Samper, an old flame and former co-worker of Teddy Conrad (Eric Close), husband of Rayna James, played by Connie Britton.
The series, set against the backdrop of the Nashville music scene, follows Rayna, a country star at her peak, and Juliette Barnes (played by Hayden Panettiere), who is a star on the rise.
Kim, who married Brad in March 2003, first came to the attention of moviegoers (and a smitten Brad himself) in 1991 with her role in "Father of the Bride." The couple have two sons, Huck, 5, and Jasper, 3.

Loretta Lynn Celebrates 50th Opry Anniversary

Among the artists scheduled to participate in the celebration are Lynn, her sister Crystal Gayle, plus friends Miranda Lambert, Lee Ann Womack, Trace Adkins, and Pistol Annies, who will be making their Opry debut.
Lynn joined the Opry family on Sept. 25, 1962. Among the hundreds of accolades she has received in the years since are three Grammy® Awards, eight Country Music Association Awards including the first female artist to win the coveted Entertainer of the Year (1972), induction into the Country Music and Songwriters Halls of Fame, and the Grammy® Lifetime Achievement Award (2010).
