Blown Away Album Lands 7th Week At No. 1
Nashville – (September 13, 2012) – Superstar Carrie
Underwood will begin her much anticipated 55-city headline North
American arena tour this Friday, “The Blown Away Tour,” in Manchester,
New Hampshire with special guest Hunter Hayes. The shows are presented
and hydrated by vitaminwater®, sponsored by Olay, and promoted by AEG
In perfect timing with the tour launch, Carrie’s album Blown Away
remains in the No. 1 position this week on the Billboard Top Country
Albums Chart, marking seven weeks spent in the top spot since its debut
in May. Blown Away is also back in the Top 5 of Billboard’s 200 All
Genre Sales chart. The album’s million-selling status designates Carrie
as the only American Idol winner to have four albums achieve Platinum
Carrie is donating $1 from each ticket sold on the North American leg
of “The Blown Away Tour” to support Red Cross disaster relief. Every
year, the American Red Cross prepares for and responds to nearly 70,000
disasters across the United States. This donation will help the Red
Cross provide shelter, food, and emotional support for those in need
after a disaster. Proceeds from her Canadian concerts will be donated
to the Canadian Red Cross.
Carrie’s two previous headline tours, 2008’s “Carnival Ride Tour” and
2010’s “Play On Tour,” performed for a combined total of nearly 250
shows with 2.2 million fans in attendance, and she wrapped both years as
the top-ranked female country touring artist.
Blown Away made history this spring by debuting at No. 1 on
Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart making Carrie only the second
country artist in the 47-year history of the chart to have each of their
first four albums debut at No. 1. Blown Away also debuted at No. 1 on
the all-genre Billboard 200 chart making Carrie only the second country
artist in history to have three consecutive albums debut at No. 1. Blown
Away became country’s best-selling digital album debut since 2010.
“Good Girl,” her first single from Blown Away, has already achieved the
No. 1 slot on both Billboard and Country Aircheck’s country airplay
charts and became her 15th No. 1 single. Blown Away’s second single and
title track continues to climb the top 10 on the Billboard country
airplay chart. This marks Underwood’s 16th single to reach the Top 10,
which according to Billboard is the first time a female has ever had
their first 16 singles all reach the Top 10 in the tally’s 68-year
Since releasing Some Hearts in 2005, Carrie has sold more than 15
million albums with Some Hearts, 2007’s Carnival Ride, and 2009’s Play
On making her the best-selling American Idol in the U.S. She’s
accumulated 15 No. 1 singles, seven of which she co-wrote, and became
the first country artist in history and the only American Idol winner
ever to achieve 10 No. 1 singles from their first two albums. She is a
five-time Grammy winner, a two-time Academy of Country Music Entertainer
of the Year, a three-time Country Music Association and ACM Female
Vocalist winner, and a proud member of the Grand Ole Opry.
Carrie will return to co-host the 46th Annual CMA Awards with Brad
Paisley on Nov. 1 on the ABC Television Network. Carrie recently
received her seventh nomination in the Female Vocalist of The Year
Hunter Hayes, the multi-talented writer, musician, producer, and
performer, is the only country artist to play every instrument,
write/co-write every song, and co-produce his critically acclaimed
self-titled debut album. As both the 2012 CMA and ACM New Artist of the
Year nominee, Hunter has been touring and performing live for decades.
He has played to sold out venues across the US and Canada on his MOST
WANTED headline tour and is currently putting the finishing touches on
preparations for touring with Carrie Underwood on her “Blown Away Tour”
this fall. The Louisiana native has also shared the stage with Taylor
Swift, Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Trace Adkins, Brad
Paisley, and Hank Williams, Jr. This multi-instrumentalist continues to
garner praise from fans and critics alike as he made his world-premiere
national television debut on CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman and
also performed with The Roots on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and on
Good Morning America. His current hit "Wanted" was recently certified
Platinum by the RIAA.

MUSTANG SALLY SPENDS SUMMER AS ENTERTAINMENT STAPLE AT LAKE ERIE RESORT TOWN, MAKES SPECIAL GUEST APPEARANCES AT UNIQUE EVENTS ACROSS THE NATION
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (September 14, 2012) - International touring band Mustang Sally has wrapped up a summer of playing to standing-room-only audiences in the Lake Erie resort town of Put-In-Bay, Ohio, while also criss-crossing the United States for a number of unique events, including Ohio Bike Week, Carolina Mountain Ribfest, Easyriders Rodeos, Pennsboro Motor Speedway, Arkansas State HOG Rally and wedding for avid fans from Georgia.
The band, known for its high energy show, kicked off its summer schedule with a debut concert at CMA Music Festival, where the musicians performed to more than 1,000 fans at the BIC Soleil Beach Stage. Immediately following the Mustang Sally Fan Club Party at Nashville's Yazoo Brewery, the band members headed to Put-In-Bay, Ohio, where they played a string of dates throughout the summer at the 4,000-seat Beer Barrel Saloon.
When Mustang Sally wasn't rockin' vacationners in Put-In-Bay, the band was playing at summer festivals, including Ohio Bike Week in Sandusky, Ohio, Easyriders Rodeos in Wilson, N.C., and Chillicothee, Ohio, and ending the season at the Hot Springs Motorcycle Rally in Hot Springs, Ark.
The members of Mustang Sally typically are the ones taking the stage by storm, but the storm got the upper hand when the band was on the schedule to play at the Freedom Days Picnic in Celina, Ohio. During the afternoon soundcheck, a storm with winds estimated up to 80 mph blew through, ripping apart the stage and sending Mandy Holbert, bass player, and Bill Strange, who is in charge of the band's transportation, to the hospital. Thankfully, the injuries were minor. The band returns to Celina October 6 to perform at The Overdrive.
Mustang Sally also made a special guest appearance at the wedding of fans Richard and Valerie Hejda, who changed their wedding date to accomodate the band's busy touring schedule. The band performed at the couple's August wedding in Georgia.
"It has been a great year and it's hard to put into words how truly blessed we are to get to make music," says Tobi Lee, lead singer. "Through all the sleepless nights on the bumpy roads across this country, once you get on stage and see familiar faces and meet new ones...It is worth it! The support from the folks across this country that come to all our shows is the reason we get to do it! So I thank You! We're in this together so I look forward to the future that we all can share through music!"

APPLESEED RECORDINGS RELEASE TWO NEW ALBUMS FROM LEGENDARY PETE SEEGER VIA AIRPLAY DIRECT
AirPlay Direct is proud to partner with Appleseed Recordings to bring two brand new releases from the legendary singer/songwriter/activist Pete Seeger to our over 7,700 radio station members globally.
FOLK/ACTIVIST ICON PETE SEEGER, 93, SURVEYS PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE ON TWO NEW CDS - A More Perfect Union, which includes guest appearances by Bruce Springsteen, Tom Morello, Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, and Dar Williams, contains 14 fresh songs that present Pete's and longtime friend and fellow songwriter Lorre Wyatt's responses to recent political, economic and environmental issues alongside gentler appreciations of life’s good moments, meditations on the future, and exhortations to individual action. Pete Remembers Woody, a two-CD set, celebrates the centennial birth year of Pete’s friend, quasi-mentor and sometime musical partner, the late Woody Guthrie, through Pete’s spoken, firsthand reminiscences as one of the last contemporaries of our country’s first great topical songwriter. Interspersed are renditions of Woody’s songs by Pete with Woody’s son Arlo, other Guthrie-influenced performers, and Woody himself (from a vintage recording).
"We are very pleased to be working with AirPlay Direct. With all of the illegal downloading going on in the music industry, it's nice to see downloading used to a label's advantage, instead of its destruction. AirPlay Direct has been wonderful in helping us make the transition.” Jim Musselman, Founder Appleseed Recordings
“This is a highlight of 2012 for AirPlay Direct to be able to work with such a monumental artist and activist, Pete Seeger and Appleseed Recordings and make these two exceptional CDs of music available to our radio station members. Pete continues to contribute to society througt his actions and music and sets an example that all of us should strive to emulate.” Michael Harnett, President - AirPlay Direct
