Carl Black Keeps It Country

That Chevy Silverado in Kip Moore’s “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck” video didn’t just happen to be out in that field when the cameras started rolling. No, it was borrowed from the Carl Black Chevrolet Automotive Group, whose support has helped shift more than a few young Country artists’ careers into high gear.
The dealer’s ties to Country reflect the musical preference of its president, Mike Bowsher. Even before the Nashville store opened in June 2003, Bowsher had built Carl Black’s business in Atlanta (Kennesaw and Roswell, Ga.) by advertising year-round on partner Country radio stations and offering live performances, hot dogs, burgers and other snacks, all for free, via its “Live on the Lot” events.

“’Live on the Lot’ provides our company a unique opportunity,” explained PD Sumner, VP, Carl Black Automotive Group. “Maybe you’ve never done business with us or even been to one of our stores. But you’re a big Kip Moore fan or a Luke Bryan fan or whatever the case may be. You come out to the dealership. We get to offer our hospitality. You get to see a great show and hear some great music. There’s a stage, the grills are smoking, the coolers are out and everyone is having a great time. Then, maybe somewhere down the road, when you’re in the market for a new car, you can say, ‘Hey, I’m going to give those guys over at Carl Black a chance.’ That’s how it works. All we can ask for is an opportunity.”
The dealership's arrival in Music City raised its presence immediately within their targeted market. When it opened in Nashville, Carl Black partnered with the Country Music Association and exhibited at CMA Music Fest. “We had a popup tent, a popup table and two chairs,” Sumner recalled. “People were blown away that we were there, in the middle of the Family Zone, with artists signing autographs.”
Carl Black’s lots have become venues for new artists to connect with a demographic that loves to crank up Country on a Chevy stereo. Recent promotions at the Nashville location have included “Win It Before You Buy It” events, at which pre-release copies of CDs by artists including Kix Brooks, Little Big Town, Love and Theft and Dustin Lynch are given to the first 50 in line. The dealer also sponsors “Tailgate Tour Parties” at the Grand Ole Opry, which have featured Eric Church, Thomas Rhett, Josh Thompson and others. And those who tune in to Carl Black’s partner stations in Nashville, Atlanta (Roswell) and Orlando have heard Lee Brice extol the dealer’s vehicles, service and community spirit on commercial spots.
As for Moore, his relationship with Carl Black goes beyond the opportunity to win new fans through “Live at the Lot” appearances. For his June performance in Nashville, the company evoked “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck” by providing red sundresses for its Carl Black Girls, who are used for hospitality at events. “They give me women and they give me a truck,” Moore said, with a laugh. “It doesn’t get any better than that.”

Country Legend Remus Harris to Release New EP Project

Country Legend Remus Harris to Release New EP Project
After countless years of wanting and waiting, the Country music legend, Remus Harris, is finally returning to his Opry roots.  The studio has been Remus' home these past few weeks as he has just completed a brand new six song EP project with radio releases to come shortly. The EP was produced by Gene Higgins, owner of Power Source Music Inc.  
Remus is no stranger to the Country and Christian music venues.  His music and songs are his life and he accredits every good thing from God.  A native to Hopkinsville, KY, Remus began his songwriting career at the age of 12.  During the 1960s he recorded his first two songs at the world famous Star Day Studio. "I sing what I write and what God gives me," says Remus.  God has blessed Remus with the gift to sing and write songs that touch hearts.  

Remus' current single, "Keep Heaven Looking Pretty" is sitting at No. 54 on the Power Source Music Magazine Inspirational Country music chart.  He wrote the single on the day that he laid his wife to rest.  When he returned home from the cemetery he was greatly inspired to write and chose to dedicate the song to her.
