(Nashville, TN-10.3.12) Century Two Recording artist's Allen Karl & Donna
Cunningham are reaching for their #1 Stars with their new singles continuing
to climb up the radio charts.  Allen with "As Sure As I'm Standing Here" and
Donna with her super ballad, "Don't Tell Me That You're Gone."


Both artists continue to gain more popularity for their music as they keep
it country.  They will be in Nashville in a short time to continue recording
several duets, and Allen will be finishing his surprise album project that
is going to show a side of the Good Guy in the Black Hat that his fan have
not heard, and his DJ friends will be excited to hear the new Allen Karl.
He has recorded several of the songs that he has written that we urged him
to include on this new CD project.  But this will be a different Allen Karl
then you have heard in the past.  New musicians, new vocals, new producers,
new production, and a new excitement in Allen's music.


Donna is moving towards the #1 slot also with her new single, and the
reviews of her performance of this ballad keep gathering new DJ's and radio
stations to put this song on their playlist.  She is extremely happy with
her career moving at such a fast pace, but she is keeping up with the tempo
of her career.  Also, Allen & Donna should see another #1 as a duet team
with the song, "Your Name Is On My Lips Again."  It has already hit #1 on
the ECMA Charts.


Allen & Donna wish to thank the DJ's worldwide for their continued support
of their music. This could be a first in the careers of these two great
artists when all three songs reach #1.  The excitement grows at Century II
Records as the watch and wait for each week's charts to come in.  


Century II is getting ready for another great news release in a short time
regarding the signing of an artist that has been a mainstay in country music
for many years and will become a part of the record label with a new single.

Go 'Get Your Merle On' With New Song From Danielle Egnew

Go 'Get Your Merle On' With New Song From Danielle Egnew

Nearly everyone recognizes Merle Haggard as one of the world's most important songwriters and now Danielle Egnew honors him in "Play Some Merle," a fast-paced country-rock song. The playful lyrics of the tune show how a little music by The Hag can make almost any situation better. "I have always been in awe of the songs of Merle Haggard," Egnew states, "so when the opportunity came to be part of this song, I jumped at it."

Egnew recorded all instruments and vocals on the track and then sent the work to producer Matt Forger for review. Forger has a long list of indie and major label credits, including working on the current "Bad25" Michael Jackson box-set. "The lyrics and the drive of the song were undeniable," Forger states, who has expressed interest in producing his own version of the tune.

The video for the song was shot entirely in the towns of Sheridan and Story, Wyoming. The video's co-directors, Egnew and Roy Pack, approached townspeople right on the street to solicit their participation. "There's such an Old West way of doing business there. It's great," says Egnew, originally a native of Montana. "We'd ask people if they wanted to be in a video and as soon as we said the title of the song, everybody was like: 'I'm in!' It was just so cool!"  

A new label, Tin Star Records, has made "Play Some Merle" their first official release. The record company was formed at the end of 2011 by Egnew and Pack. Working with Americana artists primarily in the Rocky Mountain West, the company has offices in Sheridan and Los Angeles. Shure, Inc. partnered with Tin Star to create the first all-Shure commercial recording studio, featuring Shure's studio KSM series mics. In addition, Egnew has endorsements from Minarik Guitars, In Tune Guitar Picks, Studio Devil Software, and Scoop Straps.

The three writers of "Play Some Merle" are Egnew, John Scott G, and Philip Hatten. The video for "Play Some Merle" is on YouTube at and the song is published by Golosio (BMI) and Ave Vox (ASCAP).



Correct me if I am wrong, but when Dolly pulled the plug on Gaylord’s Water & Snow Park, she gave thanks to Gov. Haslam and Mayor Dean for all they have done for the State of Tennessee and Nashville, but nothing was said regarding any thank you to Gaylord.  I wonder why???  They have been a PITA to the Nashville Community since they arrived.  For the good things they have done in the past for the Nashville community, they have covered them up with stupid things that come from not being able to manage their corporation.  They do what is best for themselves, but is not always good for the citizens of our community.  They brought Dolly into the mix thinking (I guess) that this dumb blonde. who loves Nashville because she knows Nashville better than they ever could, and she would be the catalyst for them to bring this project to a fruition with her name and money. 

The Grand Ole Opry, Ryman Auditorium, and Grand Ole Opry House, has been in a disarray and nothing but trouble from this organization.  If you read between the lines of the latest escapades from the Water & Snow Park and selling off the Gaylord hotel brand name and management rights to Gaylord’s four resort hotels, including the Opryland resort, to Marriott for $210 million, they have turned this community against them, because they are not smart people when it comes to the management of money, people, time, integrity.  What would Marriott know about the Grand Ole Opry or the Ryman Auditorium, let alone Little Jimmy Dickens, Jean Shepard, or Stonewall Jackson?  It might be good for all, if their complete organization would pack up and leave the State of Tennessee, taking with them their projects to another state, which I would not wish on anyone.  We have suffered enough from them and how they have used people and hurt so many people in our state. 

I have one question before you read the following article on Dolly pulling the stopper out of the Gaylord LeveeWhy would anyone want to build a WATER AND SNOW PARK IN NASHVILLE, TN.  The main demographics of people (who are tourist), who come to Nashville are older, and how many months would be available for the success of a water park, and who in their right mind is going to come here to go skiing in the middle of Nashville, when all they have to do is go to Ober Gatlinburg for the real deal.  Their organization must have thought they had pulled the wool over Dolly Parton’s eyes, or maybe they thought she was gullible enough to believe their offer to have her as a partner, because it did not take her long to get out of this project.  I really believe Dolly seen the writing on the wall probably shortly after the original press conference when they gave her the bouquet of flowers which she might return the favor when their organization leaves town, and then she can put the flowers on their gravesite.

Remember the song that was a 1967 hit for Dolly, “This Dumb Blonde Ain’t Nobody’s Fool.”  The words have come full circle and I hope certain people get a copy of the song and listen closely.  Is there anyone out there who would like to invest in building a Water & Snow Park!!!

            Dolly Parton announces plans to open a water-snow park in
            Nashville.Dolly Parton has pulled the plug on her involvement in the planned Water & Show Park here in Nashville.  Remember the grand plans we all heard back in January for a new Water and Snow Park, a $50 Million joint venture between Dolly’s Dollywood Company and Gaylord across from Opryland, a project that was supposed to add 450 jobs to the local economy?

Dolly Parton pulled out of a plan to build a $50 million snow and water park in Nashville, citing concerns about Gaylord Entertainment’s move this week to sell management rights for its Opryland Resort and Convention Center to Marriott International.
“Gaylord makes decisions that they feel are good for their company and their stockholders, and I have to make decisions based on what is best for me and the Dollywood Company,” Parton said Friday in a statement. “I think everyone knows I love Nashville, and I hope the work we’ve already done will spark more family entertainment in Nashville.”
The country legend’s announcement came three days after Gaylord shareholders voted to allow the Nashville hospitality and entertainment company to convert to a real estate investment trust. That plan calls for selling the Gaylord hotel brand name and management rights to Gaylord’s four resort hotels, including the Opryland resort, to Marriott for $210 million.

The snow and water park was a 50/50 joint venture between the Pigeon Forge, Tenn.-based Dollywood Company and Gaylord. Gaylord Chief Executive Officer Colin Reed said Friday that his company intends to find another partner to carry out the plan.

Gaylord’s conversion changed Dollywood’s agreement with the company to build the water park attraction, said Pete Owens, a spokesman for Dollywood Company. Owens said Dollywood negotiated the deal with Gaylord and had expected that the company would oversee its future operation.

“We looked at the change in the day-to-day operations of the property and that, in Dolly’s view, fundamentally changed the program we were planning,” Owens said.

Next week, Gaylord will become Ryman Hospitality Properties Inc., and the company’s focus will shift away from running large convention hotels on a day-to-day basis to acquiring smaller hotel properties with no more than 700 rooms. The move is designed, in part, to improve the company’s share price.

“We are deeply disappointed in today’s news that Dollywood will no longer partner with us to build a family attraction,” Reed said in a statement. “We have enormous admiration for Dolly Parton and her company, and respect their decision.”

Tom Marder, a spokesman for Marriott, said the company had no comment.

Parton had hinted at trouble in August while at a news conference her latest gold album. She said the project was “kind of in a holding pattern right now,” WKRN News 2 reported at the time.

“Gaylord is actually involved at the moment with some changes of their own,” she said. “So we are just kind of waiting until they get their things straightened out before we go forward with that.”

Gaylord was quick to dispel any notion that the development plan was not moving forward, saying then that it remained “100 percent” committed to the plan.

Dollywood executives started discussions with Gaylord following the announcement, Owens said, but did not move to end the relationship with the hospitality chain until the stockholder vote confirmed the restructuring.

Owens said the company intends now to place its focus on Dollywood properties in eastern Tennessee, as well as on upcoming expansion plans for Dollywood’s existing sites.

The Nashville water and snow park had been set to break ground early next year and open by the summer of 2014 across Briley Parkway from the Opryland Hotel. The park was supposed to be the first phase in the development of and serve as an anchor for a “family entertainment complex.”

The attraction would have been the country’s first hybrid water and snow park, Gaylord and Dollywood executives said in announcing the plan in January.

The development had been touted as a boon for the Nashville area. Reed said in February that the project would generate 2,000 construction jobs. In April, the Metro Council approved a 60 percent tax abatement, valued at $5.8 million for the project.

“I am disappointed with this news, but I am happy to hear that Gaylord still plans to pursue the possibility of a water park,” Mayor Karl Dean said. “I think the world of Dolly Parton, who has been wonderful to both Nashville and the entire state of Tennessee.”

The park plan was welcomed by the Nashville tourism community, which has lost out on some business since 1997, when Gaylord shuttered its Opryland USA theme park. The snow and water park was projected to draw 500,000 visitors in its first year, 40 percent of them from outside the state, officials said.

“We are obviously disappointed in this news. The concept and the partnership were perfect for Nashville,” Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau President Butch Spyridon said in a statement. “With a little time and a little hard work, hopefully we can regenerate this or a similar development for this city.

“It’s apparent by the previous intent that the market demand is there for this type of concept, and Nashville certainly deserves it.”

Single “Change My Mind” Available Now  

Billy Ray Cyrus album cover

Download Cover Art: Change My Mind
Nashville, TN – (October 3, 2012) – Multi-platinum recording artist Billy Ray Cyrus is set to change minds with the international release of his 13th studio album titled Change My Mind on October 23, 2012. The title track and first single is now available at iTunes and other digital retail sites. The music video can be seen on Great American Country (GAC) and CMT Pure. With Change My Mind, Cyrus delivers a stellar collection of ten songs that hearken back to his roots in bluegrass, Southern rock, gospel, and country music.
Recorded in Los Angeles over three months with GRAMMY nominated, multi award-winning producer Brandon Friesen, Change My Mind finds Cyrus coming full circle musically from the days when he made his living performing in the smoky bars of the Ohio River Valley. The album has that loose, honky-tonk feel of bar band music, but is performed by a group of world-class musicians, including in-demand session drummer Kenny Aronoff, bassist Dusty Wakeman, and guitarists Leroy Powell, John West, Dominic Cifarelli, and Nelson Blanton. Change My Mind showcases Cyrus’ smoldering, swaggering voice, as well as his unforgettable melodies and candid lyrics that offer up a window into his life.
“My songs come to me when I’m dealing with heavy stuff,” Cyrus says. “If I’m going through something emotional, the songs pour out of me. It’s the only way I know how to express myself. I have lived through every emotion on every one of these songs. I’d just write it all down and tell myself, ‘Lean into the music.’”
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 Track Listing:
  1. Change My Mind
  2. Once Again

Following on from the surprise best-selling success of its first cd release Oh So Many Years, Bear Family Records has now released two more cds by the traditional country music family group the Bailes Brothers.

(* indicates harmony vocals by WEBB PIERCE)

West Virginia’s Bailes Brothers' previous collection Oh So Many Years (Bear Family BCD 15973 AH), released in 2002 and comprising recordings made for Columbia during period 1945-47, brought the harmony tradition of one of country music's foremost family groups to brand new audiences. Although the group comprised four brothers – Johnnie, Kyle, Walter and Homer, they generally worked in combinations of two. After initial struggles, they first gained attention when Roy Acuff took an interest in their career, securing Walter and Johnnie a writer’s deal with Acuff-Rose Music, then securing them an successful audition with WSM and their debut on the Grand Ole Opry in September 1944. During the next two years they became one of the show’s most celebrated acts with their music balancing the show’s traditional and contemporary elements. Acuff also introduced the group to Columbia Records, with such songs as Dust On The Bible further adding to their popularity.

But it wasn’t plain sailing at Columbia and while they impatiently waited for their records to be released (the war created a material shortage but delays were further impacted, no doubt, by Billboard magazine which reviewed their music as suiting “the old folks at home” generation rather than for the all-important, money spending jukebox market), the Bailes jumped ship and recorded 24 titles for King Records in a WSM studio over a weekend in late summer/early autumn 1946 (the exact date having been lost). It’s these titles that appear on the first of the two new cds, Remember Me, with Walter and Johnnie Bailes providing the energetic harmony vocals, while Homer Bailes is heard on fiddle. Also playing on this mammoth session were Ernest Ferguson (mandolin), Shot Jackson (steel guitar) and Ramona Jones (bass). Unfortunately, because of the Columbia contract, these recordings – which comprised 17 Bailes originals – was held off the market for long after they had been recorded, with eight never being released until now, one being the non-original Remember Me (penned by Scotty Wiseman) which became their theme.

Soon afterwards a scandal involving Johnnie Bailes and a married woman (who subsequently fell from a second story window in a Nashville hotel) led to the group being promptly fired from the Grand Ole Opry. But fresh opportunities lay ahead in Shreveport, Louisiana where they would become headliners on the Louisiana Hayride, launched in April 3, 1948. But in spite of their increasing popularity – which, at one time, saw two different Bailes Brothers bands created to meet the increased workload - morale and money led to problems. Walter had already quit from performing to take up preaching and the other brothers split to go their own separate ways, with Johnnie even spending in a Federal Correction Institution.

Nevertheless their music continued to sell and, in 1953, Walter and Johnnie reunited as a gospel duo to record again for King. Walter had written several new hymns and the brothers' intense voices had lost none of their power on the three sessions recorded in San Antonio during 1953, with steel guitar and bass helping Johnnie’s mandolin recapture much of the Bailes’ great 1940s ensemble sound and texture. It’s these recordings that make up a dozen of the tracks assembled for the second cd Standing Somewhere In The Shadows, the remaining items comprising two solo recordings by Walter and eight by Johnnie in 1957 and ’59. By then Johnnie Bailes had become involved with Webb Pierce and Jim Denny’s radio stations, which (through their connections) resulted in a handful of single releases on Decca and a honkytonk sound more familiar with Pierce’s output, who’s heard adding harmony vocals on several of the tracks. Johnnie also cut a couple of political inspired songs, The Ballad of Honest Abe and Hula State.

The cds are also accompanied by booklets, with Dick Spottswood’s very detailed biographical information (which also reveals an insight into the Bailes' personal lives alongside the music of the era) supported by fascinating Timeline charts, photographs and discographies. With these releases Bear Family Records once again provides an invaluable service to country music collectors and historians. Not only do Remember Me and Standing Somewhere In The Shadows contain hitherto unreleased material but none of the commercial recordings have been available since the 78 rpm era!

Brittany Kerr Apologizes for Jason Aldean Cheating Scandal

Brittany Kerr, who made news this week for allegedly getting too affectionate with married country singer Jason Aldean, is offering her apologies. Her statement follows one from the singer-songwriter himself, who spoke out after the release of pictures of the two acting "inappropriately" at a bar in Hollywood last week.
"The actions I portrayed recently were not a representation of my true character, but a lapse in judgment on my part," Brittany says (quote via TMZ). "I would like to sincerely apologize to everyone that has been affected by this, including my friends and family."
The former "American Idol" contestant, who previously said she didn't know the country star was married, has taken down her Twitter and Facebook pages after becoming the subject of backlash from Jason's fans.

LeAnn Rimes Leaves Rehab, Attends Movie Premiere With Eddie Cibrian and Stepsons

LeAnn Rimes recently returned to her home in Los Angeles after spending 30 days in treatment to deal with anxiety and stress. While the month-long stay may have seemed intense at times, she says it felt perfectly natural for her to take a break to deal with her own issues.
The Grammy Award winner, 30, attended the Batman Live premiere in L.A. with her husband, Eddie Cibrian, 39, and stepsons, Mason, 9, and Jake, 5. The family outing took place nearly one month after Rimes sought treatment for anxiety and stress.
"I've been in therapy my whole life," she tells the Boston Herald. "I like going. I like being able to have that third-party input and someone to listen that has nothing to do with your life. Everyone has an opinion of how I am and how I should be, and now I'm focusing on how I want to be."
LeAnn checked into the center shortly after a Twitter feud erupted between the singer and California teacher and mother Kimberly Smiley and her daughter, Lexi, who had allegedly made derogatory comments about her. A phone call which the suit claims was unlawfully recorded without LeAnn's knowledge is at the center of an ongoing lawsuit. No matter the end result of that court case, LeAnn says she now has a better grasp on how to handle social-networking sites.

Thomas Rhett Sets Date To Marry His Best Friend

Thomas Rhett’s days as a bachelor are winding down. He revealed to Taste of Country that he will marry fiancée Lauren Gregory later this month.
“We’ve known each other since we were in the first grade,” he said. “We dated once when we were 15, and it didn’t work out. We remained best friends even after we broke up. We both dated other people for like five years. When I heard that she had ended her other relationship — this was last spring — I moved in for the kill. We kissed, and that was it. We dated for probably six months, and we got engaged last December, around Christmas time.”
Thomas knew the perfect way to ask Lauren to be his wife. He enlisted the help of both their families, including his dad, songwriter Rhett Atkins, to help him pull off his romantic proposal.



Sunny Sweeney, Kendell Marvel, Leslie Satcher, and host Bob DiPiero Play Joe’s Bar in Chicago on Oct. 24 and Joe’s Pub in New York City on Oct. 25
NASHVILLE – As part of Country Music Month, the popular CMA Songwriters Series will travel once again to Chicago for a show at Joe’s Bar on Wednesday, Oct. 24 (8:30 PM/CT), before returning to the place where it all began, New York City’s Joe’s Pub, on Thursday, Oct. 25 (6:30 PM/ET and 9:00 PM/ET). Sunny Sweeney will join Kendell Marvel, Leslie Satcher, and host Bob DiPiero for two nights of storytelling and singing.
Sweeney’s Top 10 single, “From a Table Away,” was the highest charting debut single from a female artist since 2006. She has toured with Lady Antebellum, Brad Paisley, and Darius Rucker, performing in front of more than one million fans.
