WILL BANISTER 1st UK TOUR - A GREAT SUCCESS


WILL BANISTER 1st UK TOUR - A GREAT SUCCESS

Although it was brief, Will Banister's debut UK tour was a great success.

Following on from his appearance at Wembley's International Festival of Country Music in February, and the huge critical acclaim for his Turned Her On To Country cd, the Clovis, New Mexico country music traditionalist played before ecstatic audiences in Basildon, Widnes, Leeds, Watton and Nottingham.

After each concert he spent time meeting with the crowds, signing autographs and selling copies of his brand new album, Turn Back Time, which received its worldwide premier to coincide with the tour.

Then, after the tour, Will Banister's Facebook site has continued to host many compliments and good wishes. 

"I enjoyed meeting all the great people and discovering so many real country music fans" says Banister. "I also loved seeing the beautiful country side ..... even enjoyed the rain!"

Backing him at every date were top British musicians Derek Thurlby (steel guitar), John J. Paul (keyboards), John Pettifer (guitar) and Roy Martin (drums), joined by Banister's record producer/manager Johnny Mulhair (guitar/harmonica) and Jill Mulhair (bass/vocals). The tour was promoted by Nicky James who, previously, brought into the UK such country stalwarts as Gene Watson, Moe Bandy and Johnny Rodriguez.

Unfortunately the previous announced Invergordon concert was cancelled but Will Banister will make his Scottish debut at the Northern Nashville Country Music Festival, Halkirk, at Easter next year. He is also booked as a headlining act on the Americana festival, Newark County Showground, July 11-13, 2013.

In the meantime country music fans are applauding Banister's Turn Back Time album, a cd that equals the praise afforded the earlier Turned Her On To Country - a not easy task when the first rated among the finest releases of 2012. Country Music People provided the first print review, with editor Duncan Warwick writing: "Once again Will Banister has showed the major labels, not only what they're missing, but what they should be doing."

DARLING MEETS DARLING

MUSIC CITY’S DARLING MEETS BASEBALL’S DARLING
 
 
 
 
 
Nashville, TN…(October 1, 2012) Black River Entertainment’s Sarah Darling caught up with R.A. Dickey of the New York Mets at Citi Field on Sunday, September 23 before taking the field herself.
 
Affectionately called “Music City’s Newest Darling,” Nashville local Sarah Darling performed her new single, “Home To Me,” and the Beatles classic, “Blackbird,” prior to the Mets’ 3-2 victory over the Miami Marlins.  Sarah also performed “God Bless America” during the famed seventh-inning stretch.
 
Also a Nashvillian, Dickey attended the University of Tennessee as an English literature major, is a best selling author and won his 20th game of the season in the 6-5 win against the Pittsburgh Pirates on September 27.  He remains a likely candidate for the 2012 NL Cy Young Award after rejuvenating his career by switching to the knuckleball as his primary pitch.
 
Over the same weekend, "Home To Me" made its national debut on Fox & Friends Weekend as one of two songs Sarah performed on Saturday, September 22.  Fans of Sarah Darling can visit www.foxnews.com to watch both the "Home to Me" and “Old T-Shirt” performances.  In addition, fans can purchase “Home To Me” on iTunes and view the lyric video on YouTube.
 
“Home To Me,” written by Caitlyn Smith & Bobby Hamrick, is a breezy mid-tempo track that takes the listener on a lyrical journey comparing her love interest to the beauty of America’s landscape as she finds “home” in that person.
 
ABOUT SARAH DARLING:
Sarah Darling made a decision back in Iowa to take a leap of faith and chase her dreams.  Once she decided to go for it, Sarah worked day and night to save $5,000 and then moved from small town Iowa to Nashville.  Upon arriving in Music City, Sarah worked diligently to hone her performing and songwriting, even appearing in several music videos.  Since then, Sarah has released two #1 videos with "Something To Do With Your Hands" from her sophomore album Angels & Devils and "Blackbird," from the charity-based compilation album, Let Us In Nashville.  Sarah made her Grand Ole Opry debut in February 2011 and, on August 18, 2012, Sarah performed on the legendary stage for the twentieth time.  Today, affectionately called “Music City's Newest Darling” by the Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau and touted by the New York Times as a “sophisticated songwriter” with a “crisp, powerful voice,” Sarah Darling is confidently making her mark on the country music scene.  For more information, visit www.sarahdarling.com or Facebook.com/OfficialSarahDarling.

JASON ALDEAN RIDES TO THE TOP

Jason Aldean
 
JASON ALDEAN RIDES TO THE TOP OF THE
BILLBOARD AND MEDIABASE
RADIO CHARTS AT TOP SPEED

"Take A Little Ride" Is Country Music's
Fastest Moving Single of 2012 
 
Nashville, TN – Oct. 1, 2012 – CMA Entertainer of the Year nominee Jason Aldean claims his sixth consecutive No. one song, and tenth of his career, today as his smash hit single “Take A Little Ride” drives into the top spot on both the Billboard and Mediabase charts after only 10 weeks.  The lead single off his upcoming Oct. 16 release, NIGHT TRAIN, climbed to the top of both charts faster than any other country song this year.

“It's awesome to see new music getting a reaction on radio and live at our shows'” said Aldean.  “It's always dicey adding new songs to your set before an album is out, and you never know how long it's going to take a single to catch fire.  This one went quick…the crowd is screaming for it even before we kick into the opening riff.  It's a good reminder of how important country radio has been, and continues to be, to my career.  We have so many great songs on the new record, and I hope we get to release a lot of 'em!"

The Billboard cover story featuring Aldean and NIGHT TRAIN crowns him "the hottest male act in country music" and "the leader of a bonafide country scene."  All the buzz for the award winner's fifth studio album comes on the heels of the top-selling country album of 2011, MY KINDA PARTY, which spawned five consecutive No. one singles and holds the current title of CMA Album of the Year.  NIGHT TRAIN is available for pre-order now at digital retailers and www.jasonaldean.com.

Aldean recently earned three Country Music Association Awards nominations for the Nov. 1 show, in the categories of Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and Single of the Year for "Dirt Road Anthem."   Additionally, he has sold out every show on his MY KINDA PARTY TOUR presented by State Farm®, – often in minutes at the day of on sale – and has broken over 40 venue attendance records.  The tour has gone on to sell an unparalleled 1.9 million tickets.

Steel Guitar News October 1. 2012

Hello fellow players, This is Vic Lawson with today's newsletter. Since we have players at all levels on the list, I'd like to direct the first part of this newsletter to the less advanced players and explain how we communicate key signatures with hand signals when we're on a stage and the noise level is so high we can't all hear the key called out, especially if you're half deaf like most of us from years of playing. Actually what started me back using the circle of fifths was a bass player. So I had to go back and refresh my memory on it. For example, he would start turning his hand up and just show four fingers to represent the key, which in this case was the key of E. He said I'm going to start using this to tell you what key we're in because nobody could hear on the loud stage. He was closest to the singer so he could hear the key the singer was in when no one else could hear. Let me break this down for you. This goes back to the importance of knowing your circle of fourths and fifths. If you ever saw it on a church hymnal on the top where it shows the key signature where it has for example four sharps (#). Our hand signals consist of a fist for the key of C because there are no sharps or flats. We use fingers up for sharps and fingers down for flats. One finger up is G, two fingers up is D, three fingers up is A, four fingers up is E, five fingers up is B and six fingers up is F#. For the flat keys, one finger down is F, two fingers down is Bb, three fingers down is Eb, four fingers down is Ab, five fingers down is Db and six fingers down is Gb. At first I related this to bass guitar because it was not as overwhelming. If you're on the third string, third fret, C note it's very easy to get to the fifth note of the key by going to the fourth string, third fret which is the G note which helps you remember that one finger up is the key of G. To get to the fifth of the G, take that pattern and move up two frets and the name of the note will equal the number of sharps in the scale and the numbers of fingers being held up. The fifth fret gives you D and A (two and three fingers up), the seventh fret gives you E and B (four and five fingers up) and finally the ninth fret gives you F# (six fingers down). To remember the flat keys, start at the fourth string, eighth fret, C note. Move down one string to the F which is one finger down. Repeat the same pattern a whole step down and that covers the circle of fourths. The eights fret gives you C to F (zero and one finger down), the sixth fret gives you Bb and Eb (two and three fingers down), the fourth fret gives you Ab and Db (four and five fingers down) and finally the second fret, fourth string gives you Gb (six fingers down). If you're going to relate this to a six string guitar, just think about it in terms of strings five and six. And with steel just think about the same frets except pedals down and up positions. A lot of you may not see the relevance in this to steel guitar, but any musically knowledge should in some way help your playing sooner or later. Remember, you're not just a steel player, but a musician as well. If enough of you are interested in this, we may do a YouTube video. Just reply to the newsletter and let us know. In fact, send us your questions and ideas you'd like to see us address in the newsletter and we'll try to cover the topics we get the most requests for. I was doing a session the other day and noticed that when I played harmonics or chimes they were dying out more than usual. I was thinking my technique was off or something. I didn't know what was going on to be honest with you. I made it through the session and then went to a night time gig and during sound check I was trying to remedy the problem and discovered that some of the lubricant out of a changer had seeped up under the string when it was upside down in the case. I took a cloth and wiped that off and that fixed the problem. I have never had that happen ever. So if you ever have this kind of problem that's something to check. Tonight I'm playing a six to ten on Broadway and the bass player is a steel player as well, Eddie Lange. It can be a little uncomfortable knowing a pedal steel player is behind you. Even though we're friends, I still feel that in some way he's critiquing or being critical of my playing even though that's probably not the case. At least I'll know the bass line will be correct. A lot of steel players are bass players and play bass better than bass only players. A good bass player can lead the band to the next chord. If you've got a good ear, you'll hear where the next chord is going from the bass player and the melody of the song. I'd only been playing Broadway about a year and was playing at Robert's on a Tuesday night. We were in between songs and me and the guitar player were checking our tuning. The guitar player leans over to me and says, "It sucks to be you." At first I thought he was talking about tuning a steel. So I asked him, "What are you talking about?" He replied, "Tommy White, John Hughey and their wives just walked in the back door and they're setting in the balcony." Naturally, I was a nervous wreck because here were two of the best players in town listening to my lame playing. I was on pins and needles that I'd make a mistake and telling myself the whole time, don't mess up. So the next tune is a ballad and the guitar player teasingly says, "Hey, play something like John Hughey would play!" He was having way too much fun at my expense. I never made eye contact with either one of them and I told the guitar player to let me know when they leave. After forty-five minutes of sweating, he said, "Ok, they've gone." After thinking about it for awhile I realized we can only play what we can play and everyone is at a different level, so just have fun with it.

TMZ Camera Catches Jason Aldean Kissing Brittany Kerr


TMZ reported over the weekend that Jason Aldean may have gotten a little too up close and personal with a former American Idol contestant right in front of everyone in a very public bar on Sunset Strip in Las Angeles last week. The website TMZ.Com put up a gallery of photos that are unmistakenly Jason. In the photos it appears Jason is hugging, touching and at one point going in for a kiss with season 11 "A.I" contender Brittany Kerr. Jason was later seen leaving the bar without Brittany. 




Reports started surfacing on Sunday that Jason Aldean was caught in a compromising position with former American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr while in CA hanging at The Den. The pair were caught cuddling and what looked like kissing while inside.
Jason made a statement Sunday evening regarding the allegations and has asked for help in dealing with the matter privately:

Hey Guys – I wanted to talk to you directly, so you were hearing the truth from me and not just reading allegations made about my personal life on gossip web sites.

Before the trio hits Sydney, they have shows scheduled in Brisbane, Queensland, tonight (Sept. 27) and tomorrow (Sept. 28). The group's three-night stint in the state capital of New South Wales will take place at one of the most recognizable venues in the world, the Sydney Opera House.

Josh Turner Meets One Of His Biggest Heroes




Josh Turner was thrown a curveball while in New York, N.Y. promoting his new Cracker Barrel® exclusive album, Josh Turner – Live Across America. While visiting MLB’s Fan Cave, Turner received an unexpected surprise when he ran into Phil Niekro, one of his biggest baseball heroes, along with Tim Wakefield who were promoting Knuckleball!, their new film.
Niekro, a.k.a. “Knucksie,” became known for his unstoppable knuckleball pitches while with the Atlanta Braves and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1997. Fellow knuckleballer, Wakefield, is most remembered for his longevity in the sport and his 17 years with the Boston Red Sox before his retirement earlier this year.

Alert for Monday on CBS and NBC




Kip Moore will perform his platinum-selling, two-week No. 1 hit, “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck,” on Monday, Oct. 1, on NBC’s Today from the campus of the University of Tennessee.
He is excited to be a part of this special show, “Kathie Lee and Hoda Go Back to College.” The University of Tennessee is the winner of a contest to determine which school would be selected to host the popular morning show. After a Twitter campaign, six finalists were chosen, and it was a heated competition between Syracuse University, Ohio State University, Brandeis University, University of South Florida, Creighton University and the University of Tennessee. After receiving almost 150,000 votes, UT was named the winner.




In celebration of the release of his new album, Free The Music (available Oct. 2), Jerrod Niemann will appear on CBS This Morning Monday, Oct. 1st, and perform an intimate, stripped concert, Live From Home with Jerrod Niemann, at New York’s eclectic Housing Works Bookstore Café in an effort to raise funds and awareness to fight AIDS and homelessness in New York City.
Additionally, now through Sunday, September 30th, Niemann will set his new music free by giving fans the chance to stream it on his official website before it becomes available.
On Oct. 2nd, Niemann will make a special trip to sing with the kids of the sensational PS22 Chorus in Staten Island, NY who have achieved extraordinary accomplishments – both musically and academically. Other artists who have performed with the PS22 Chorus include Beyonce, Gym Class Heroes, Lady Gaga, Stevie Nicks, Katy Perry, Carrie Underwood and more.

ON THE ROAD WITH BOB & SHEILA EVERHART OCTOBER 1. 2012


ON THE ROAD WITH BOB & SHEILA EVERHART
     Anita, Iowa...."What with all the 'stuff' we had to take care of with the museum break in, it is finally slowing down a little, but we still don't have any clues as to who broke into our little 'memory museum' dedicated to the movers and shakers of early country music, especially here in the State of Iowa.  The first thing we had to do," said Bob, "was get those windows in the back of the museum cemented shut.  We certainly want to thank Ron Jensen for helping us with that, he did a remarkable job on such short notice.  It'll take a tank to get through what he built with concrete blocks."
     "There was quite a lot of media about this," Sheila added.  All of our local newspapers and radio stations were on it right away.  Channel-13 television came out and did a story that was on the 5pm 6pm and 10pm news that night, and both radio stations in Atlantic, plus one in Red Oak covered it.  Bob and I are so impressed with Midwest people when a time of need comes up.  Some of the stories have invited everyone to come see a show with Storm Seymour and Stephanie Snow on October 12th.  This is going to be a fund raiser to pay for all the cement blocks and the inside plaster board and repairs.  Storm and his niece Stephanie have agreed to give a portion of their earnings to help pay the bills.  So have our regulars Rick & Harriette Andersen, David Green, Marge Lund, Francis Hahn, and Bob & Sheila Everhart.  So, it's going to  be an exciting night for us October 12th, not only a very good entertaining show, but we'll be able to raise some money for the repairs."
     "Not only that," added Bob, some of the newspapers even suggested that if someone couldn't make it to the show, they could still make a donation anyway, so they put our P O Box in the story.  This is a real surprise.  We got some incredible donors, and we can't thank them enough.  Here's who helped out in the order that we received the donations:  Jerry Dietz from KCSI radio in Red Oak, Iowa $100; Roger & Maria Petersen, Omaha, Nebr. $35; Cynthia Binyon, Bisbee, AZ $10; Donna Phillips, Atlantic, Iowa $10; Peter Trenholm Pugwash, Nova Scotia $200; Jim & Marilyn Conrey, W Liberty, Iowa $50; Marjorie Boyle, Santa Barbara, Calif $20; Ruby Jones Atlantic, Iowa $20.  So you can see, we have some super help.  It's so surprising to us, Marjorie Boyle in Calif. heard about it through the Iowa Museum Assn. of which we are members.  And, Peter Trenholm, who just brought us one of the most rare 78rpm records we have, Hank Williams first one on the Sterling label, was absolutely horrified that someone would invade a 'museum' in an attempt to make money.  He was very disgruntled.  So are we, we just don't understand this, but thanks to the many who have already helped out, and to those that will come to see our show on October 12th, we are also very very grateful for the 'nice' people that are still concerned about these kind of terrible things."
     "We also have the Fremont Festival to get ready for too," Sheila added.  "We'll have a donation box there to help raise the few more dollars we need to pay for everything.  It's going to be a hum-dinger of a festival.  Not as large as LeMars, but some of the best talent in our own local and regional area will be performing there.  So, bring the camper out for the weekend, nice electrical hook-ups with water, right close to the performance center, the Christensen Field House in Fremont, Nebraska, Oct. 5-6-7.  Everything starts up at noon on Friday, Oct. 5th."
     "Dad finally figured out how to get a budget lunch at 9pm," Bobbie Lhea added.  "I wanted to see Hotel Transylvania which is in 3-D at the Atlantic theater, so we went, and it is really really good.  It's about a kind of dumb boy who winds up in Dracula's castle, and is the first human to do this. Dracula's daughter is just turning 16 years old, it's her birthday party, and the human and her get close.  Well, you know what I mean, it's a great movie.  Anyway, dad took us to the Feed-Lot after the movie.  He said we could only have a tenderloin sandwich and a drink. Believe it or not, we just barely made our objective, three eat for $20.  Well, dad didn't have anything to drink except water, but he let me have a Shirley Temple, and it still worked out for us.  Good too."

Chuck Hancock at ICM Awards Show




The 18th Annual ICM Faith, Family & Country™ Awards, to be held October 18, 2012 at Schermerhorn Symphony Center (One Symphony Place), is excited to announce the addition of Chuck Hancock to their list of performers.  Chuck will be performing his current hit single “They Don’t Stay Little Long Enough.”  He is nominated in 3 major categories for this year’s 18th Annual ICM Awards Show.


Male Vocalist - Songwriter - Music Evangelist of the Year

A master songwriter who is enjoying great success in all genre’s of Country, Gospel, and Inspirational Music.  With his new self-penned single, “They Don’t Stay Little Long Enough” getting great airplay throughout Europe and the U.S., Chuck’s fan base is growing stronger with each new release.  And now to be nominated for three (3) major ICM Awards and to be invited to perform on this ICM Awards Show, is giving him a taste of what lies ahead for him in his career as he gears up for more touring, and enjoys this special time with his music.

“On A Personal Note,” Chuck’s new CD, including 10 songs written by Chuck, is being recognized as a super songwriter with the penmanship of the great writers in country music.  He is already working on a new project, and once again all songs will be written by Chuck.
