Nashville, TN – (September 18, 2012) – Everything is coming full circle for multi-platinum recording artist Billy Ray Cyrus with the television premiere of his music video for the new single, “Change My Mind.” This driving country/rock gem harkens back to Cyrus’ Flatwoods, KY, roots and will be brought to life on Great American Country (GAC) today (9/18) and tomorrow (9/19) on CMT Pure. The video can also be seen on all online outlets starting this week.

Watch the video for “Change My Mind” now via:
http://www.cmt.com/videos/billy-ray-cyrus/836512/change-my-mind.jhtml

Directed by Michael Maxxis and filmed in Pioneertown, CA - one of the most storied Old West towns home to Roy Rogers - the video captures both Cyrus’ adventurous and sensitive sides with a rockin’ performance in the desert, a sexy car ride, relationship drama and more. The co-host of ABC's nationally-syndicated entertainment show OnTheRedCarpet, Rachel Smith, makes a special featured appearance in the video.

When asked about making the video in the middle of the desert, Cyrus shared, “I think the heat ended up working for us. It’s a hot track, on a hot day, with a couple of hot ladies in the video that just smoked it. I can’t wait for the world to see it!”

Billy Ray Cyrus struck it big in June 1992 with his debut album, the eventual 9x-platinum-selling No. 1 Some Gave All, fueled by the best-selling single “Achy Breaky Heart,” which spent five weeks atop the Billboard Country chart.  Some Gave All (which held the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top 200 chart for 17 weeks in a row and became the best-selling debut album of all time by a male solo artist) launched Cyrus’ colorful 20-year career in the spotlight — during which he has sold millions of albums worldwide, charted nearly 30 singles (including three No. 1 country hits), and racked up multiple film and television credits. “Change My Mind” is the lead single and title track from Cyrus’ forthcoming thirteenth studio album produced by the award-winning Brandon Friesen. Change My Mind is set for release on October 23 via Blue Cadillac Music.

Are the Independent Country Music Songwriters Days Numbered?

Are the Independent Country Music Songwriters Days Numbered??
 
Let's take a good long look at today's Country Music Industry, 90% of the hit artists that are selling records in country music are now writing their own songs on their releases.
Toby Keith on his first album release wrote all the songs except one (To me that's not very good odds) Taylor Swifts new album, she wrote all the songs, "Are they any good you ask?" Who cares, she will still sell in the millions, The only difference is she will not be making money for other writers, she gets to keep it all. This seems to be the growing trend among labels and artists in Nashville, SINGER SONGWRITERS and if they ain't songwriters, make em songwriters and keep all the money!!!!
Dierks Bentley, Hit recording artist, ALSO A.S.C.A.P. WINNER OF SONGWRITER OF THE YEAR AND SONG OF THE YEAR "NEED YOU NOW"
Chris Young honored as a songwriter for Getting You Home (The Black Dress Song), Darius Rucker "Alright", Brad Paisley "American Saturday Night", Kellie Pickler "Best Days Of Your Life", David Lee Murphy "Big Green Tractor" Kenny Chesney "I'm Alive", George Strait "Living For The Night".
I could go on like this forever, my point is, "Where are the independent Country Music Songwriters???? Where are those people who play in those little clubs in Nashville like the Bluebird, or The Comodore. Why are people still out there trying to get into the country music business claiming to be a songwriter and not an artist?? At lease 10 times a month I hear from some guy out in who knows where approach me and say "I don't wanna be an artist I just wanna sell my songs"!!
Well I have a big news flash for you my friend AIN'T NOBODY BUYING!!! And if you do get that one in a million shot at getting a major cut by a major artist, they will probably take your publishing royalties and go down as a co-writer and get 1/2 of those royalties.
The way it looks today, if it keeps going like it is, the independent songwriter will soon become a myth and fall by the wayside just like REAL COUNTRY MUSIC HAS. I will always remember this line when I was producing Mel McDaniel's Last Career album "THE LAST RIDE" recorded 1 week before he past away, I asked Mel who was celebrating 25 years as a member of the Grand Ole Opry, "So Mel What Do You Think Of Country Music Today? He looked at me and said " I DON'T KNOW DOC, I AINT HEARD NONE IN 15 YEARS (That was in March of 2011)
Hey that's just my opinion and the way I see it.

Each year Bob Everhart assembles some of the greats in country music to induct them into their Hall of Fame, and he brings in talent from all corners of the U.S. and worldwide.  He is to be commended and if he has not received the Platinum Award for helping to keep country music alive, then we need to present it to him at next year’s festival
Donna Cunningham also made the trip to LeMars, IA to perform with Allen Karl at some of his shows.   Donna and Allen were greeted by thousands of the fans, as they continue to gain new fans with their great performances.  They also shared the stage with some of the legendary great artists in country music, Lynn Anderson, Ed Bruce, Tom T. Hall, Michael Martin Murphy and more.  Donna and Allen are becoming a fan favorite at every event they perform at, and LeMars, IA has taken them both into their hearts as a great additions to the festival, and they have given back with their great performances along with their great rapport with the fans.  Both Donna’s and Allen’s fan base has grown considerably since their appearances at the festival.

We congratulate Allen Karl for we believe he deserves this award for his hard work and dedication to his career and Country music. We know that our dear friend James Allen who passed away recently from cancer, would have been so proud of Allen right now just as we all are, I only mention James as I know he was so proud to have been Allen Karl's promoter and friend.  Allen Karl was also inducted into the Great Country Radio Hall Of Fame in 2011.
 Allen has a new single “As Sure As I’m Standing Here” climbing to the #1 slot once again, and Allen and Donna have a single duet “Your Name Is On My Lips Again,” also making it flight to the #1 slot also.  They are beginning to get more reviews and great reaction from all corners of the globe.
Donna has a new single “Don’t Tell Me That You’re Gone” which is getting rave reviews around the country and in Europe in only its first week.  They are saying this is one of best songs she has recorded and her performance of this ballad is as good as it gets.  Great things are happening in the careers of Allen Karl and Donna Cunningham.
