Nashville, TN-(December 4, 2012)-When asked “what is the best music advice you have ever been given?” Steve Rice quipped, “Don’t quit your day job.”  Taken in the literal sense, Rice would have coveted his caution from the wind and settled down into the normalcy of forty hours a week permanently engraved on a time card.  Luckily, Rice’s literal sense mapped a far greater landscape of normalcy heading one of the top ranking bands in the independent music scene whose broad style and catalog is as robust as the hordes of fans that span the country and a decade.  On December 4th AMERICA’S SON will be delivered to eager fans that will have the chance to give birth to their journalistic skills as music critics.  The band is offering an autographed electric guitar to the best fan review posted on their Facebook page.  The contest will run for one month ending on January 4th.  The winner will be notified via Facebook.  

Hatched from the Red Dirt music mecca of Stillwater, Oklahoma and adopted into the live music epicenter of Texas, No Justice has cultivated a powerful brand built on unforgettable melodies, miles of solid comprehensive songwriting, and adorned with four
acclaimed record releases with combined record sales topping over 100,000 units, two #1 hits and eight Top 10 singles on the Texas Music Chart, and a demand for live performances that keep them on the road over 200 days a year.  To succeed in chartering a career with this kind of longevity today is not fundamentally based on awards or chart action or even sales stats, though No Justice has all of that and more in spades.  The absolute key, the very core of any successful music career depends ultimately on the quality of the music and the continuity in which that music is produced.  To put it simply, you have to create a pool of music that people want to swim in and No Justice has done
just that, now five records deep.          

AMERICA’S SON is a family affair with a repeat performance from producer Dexter Green (Collective Soul) and released by Smith Music Group, longtime friends and partners who are responsible for the release of three previous records.  Newer fans that found themselves addicted to the rock infused sound of their previous 2010 release SECOND AVENUE might be caught a little off guard by this lighter fix, but long time No Justice fans will be quickly transported back to the early days and immersed in the country music sound and heartbreaking melodies that No Justice is most revered for. Brand new songs cloaked in the gains and losses of a nomadic life are wiser for the wear here and the nuances of a greater appreciation in life do not go unnoticed.  The record also features a star-studded cast both on the recordings and behind the scenes including guest vocal performances by Elizabeth Cook on “Songs On The Radio” and Rebecca Lynn Howard on the rejuvenated piano soaked “Don’t Walk Away.”  Jason Isbell, previously of the Drive By Truckers, provides brilliant slide guitar and backing vocals on the record’s first single “Never Gonna Be Enough” and Texas music fans will pleasantly
discover a couple of tunes co-written with Casey Donahew as well as Trent Willmon and Clint Ingersol.  By going back to their roots No Justice has taken a huge step forward much like the bravest of us who venture out of our comfort zones and then return home with a stronger sense of self having faced the new and unknown with audacity.  No Justice is Steve Rice (lead vocals/acoustic guitar), Armando Lopez (drums), Cody Patton (lead guitar, vocals), Justin Morris (bass, vocals) and Bryce Conway (keys).  AMERICA’S SON is all of us who laugh, cry, live and love.


Randy Houser's How Country Feels will be available January 22, 2013.
Courtesy: Stoney Creek Records
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Powerhouse vocalist Randy Houser has been said to have "true musical horsepower" by Country Weekly and GAC asserts, "one listen to his soulful singing is enough to convince you that you're listening to a star."  As reported exclusively on AOL's The Boot this morning, Houser will release his third album, How Country Feels, on Tuesday, January 22, 2013. His first release on new record label Stoney Creek Records features the Top-10-and-rising and No. 1 Billboard Heatseekers smash hit "How Country Feels," and will be available everywhere music is sold.
The follow-up to his critically-acclaimed sophomore album They Call Me Cadillac is a 15-track disc including seven songs penned by Houser, and is named for the hit "How Country Feels," Houser's fastest-climbing which has sold over 250k singles to-date. Maintaining his label as a "true singer's singer," (Roughstock), Houser brings the same quality craftsmanship to the new album that brought him No. 2 smash hit "Boots On," poignant ballad "Anything Goes," fan-favorite crowd stomper, "Whistlin' Dixie," and made him the Most-Played New Artist on country radio in 2009 (Country Aircheck).
How Country Feels is produced by Derek George – the first person Houser ever met when he first moved to Nashville. “I’ve wanted to work with him since day one,” says Houser. “We just clicked… he comes from my home state of Mississippi and we share a similar creative vision that I think really shines through on this new album… can’t wait for ya’ll to hear it!”

The enhanced disc, comprised of seven songs and a bonus music video, was produced by Tony Bruno (Rihanna, Enrique Iglesias) and recorded in Nashville and New York.  The Long Island songstress contributed three tracks: "Wouldn't You Like to Know," "Girl with a Rock 'n Roll Heart" and "Learning as You Grow."  Other writers include Bryan Adams, Kelly Archer, Dolly Parton and Don Rollins.

Billboard.com's Chuck Dauphin notes that Lisa's "vivacious spirit" comes across on SOMEBODY'S BABY.  "Whether it be the up-tempo sheen of the title cut or the warmth exuded on ballads like 'Heaven' and the stirring 'Learning As You Grow,' she is a star on the rise."

Matassa's first single from the disc, the title track, is moving steadily up the Billboard/BDS Indicator Chart ( #49 ) and is a Top 10 hit in Europe.  Her "Somebody's Baby" video has already garnered nearly 2 MILLION YouTube views.  The visually-enticing piece, directed by hotshot Traci Goudie (Hunter Hayes, Merle Haggard, Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin), is included on the enhanced EP.  Fans will also find another special bonus: Matassa has included the audio track for her favorite holiday number, "The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)."  The Christmas Song video was last year's #1 Holiday Video on CMT.  It will air again on the network this month, as well as on GAC and TCN.  Radio can catch the holiday spirit via PlayMPE and can access the full album at AIRPLAY DIRECT.

Debut Album, HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES, Available Tomorrow (12/4)

Florida Georgia Line Debut Album Art

MEDIA ONLYDownload Hi-Res Cover Art: https://bmlg.box.com/s/47bmiztooden5mfgdwez
Nashville, TN (December 3, 2012) – Hot new duo Florida Georgia Line has more than enough holiday cheer to wrap up the year. The newcomers have topped the Country radio charts – earning their first U.S. #1 – with their debut single “Cruise,” which has been certified PLATINUM by the RIAA for selling over 1 million copies. Tomorrow (12/4), they will release their aptly-titled debut album, HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES, on Republic Nashville.
“We’ve been completely amazed by what ‘Cruise’ has done. To have our debut single sell over a million and be #1 on the week our debut album is out. … we are so thankful. We can’t wait to meet all of you out on the road,” said FGL’s Tyler Hubbard of Monroe, Georgia.
FGL’s Brian Kelley from Ormond Beach, Florida agreed, "I remember jokingly telling Tyler when we were recording that ‘Cruise’ was going to sell a million copies and I can’t believe it’s actually a reality. We’ve been working so hard to give our fans something they can bob their heads along to and a way for them to get to know us a little more. We think this album accomplishes that and has something for everyone.”
Fans and Superstars – Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Jennifer Nettle’s (Sugarland) and Dierks Bentley – alike have been buzzing about the duo. With their infectious lyrics and buoyant melody, “Cruise,” has consistently remained in the Top 5 on the iTunes Country Singles Chart and the Top 10 on the iTunes All Genre Singles Chart.
Producer Joey Moi (Jake Owen, Nickelback) showcases FGL’s fresh and exciting sound, which is drawn from an eclectic mix of influences ranging from country to hip-hop, on the 11-track project. The duo penned six of the songs on the standard release as well as the two bonus tracks on the Target exclusive.
  1. Cruise (Tyler Hubbard, Brian Kelley, Joey Moi, Chase Rice, Jesse Rice)
  2. Round Here (Rodney Clawson, Chris Tompkins, Thomas Rhett)
  3. Get Your Shine On (Tyler Hubbard, Brian Kelley, Rodney Clawson, Chris Tompkins)
  4. Here’s To The Good Times (Rodney Clawson, Chris Tompkins, Lynn Hutton)
  5. It’z Just What We Do (Tyler Hubbard, Brian Kelley, Rodney Clawson)
  6. Stay (Joey Moi, John Fred Young, Chris Robertson, Jon Lawhon, Ben Wells)
  7. Hell Raisin’ Heat Of The Summer (Rodney Clawson, Chris Tompkins, Craig Wiseman)
  8. Tell Me How You Like It (Tyler Hubbard, Brian Kelley, Chris Tompkins)
  9. Tip it Back (Tyler Hubbard, Brian Kelley, Rodney Clawson)
  10. Dayum, Baby (Tyler Hubbard, Brian Kelley, Rodney Clawson, David Lee Murphy)

  12. What Are You Drinkin’ About (Tyler Hubbard, Brian Kelley, Craig Wiseman) *Target Exclusive 
  13. Country In My Soul (Tyler Hubbard, Brian Kelley, Jennifer Zuffinetti) *Target Exclusive

Pete Kennedy Wraps Up His International Tour With Impressive Company

Pete Kennedy Wraps Up His International Tour With Impressive Company
 (Nashville, TN) Irish Singer/Songwriter Pete Kennedy brought his international tour to a close earlier this month after a 3-month stint opening for incredible pop icon/composer Neil Sedaka and Philadelphia soul group The Stylistics. It was the experience of a lifetime for Kennedy, who played 27 shows to an audience of nearly 36,000 people across the UK between October and December. Kennedy also was invited to join national and regional radio stations, RTE (Ireland) BBC (UK), along with a number of local stations in the UK.
“Pete Kennedy was truly a crowd pleasing warm up act and a delight to have on tour,” Sedaka says of his experience with this burgeoning country artist.
After spending several busy months in Nashville this year filming his debut music video and performing at the fan-filled CMA Fest, the opportunity to tour closer to home was a welcome one for Pete. With the holidays fast approaching, he’ll use his newfound downtime to rejuvenate for what is sure to be an eventful new year.
“This tour has been amazing and I am so grateful to have been a part of it,” said Pete. I am taking away many new fans that I would not have been able to reach if not for the Sedaka/Stylisitics tour.”
Pete Kennedy is the walking, talking, singing embodiment of how the world sees the people of Ireland—repeatedly bouncing back from tragedy and finding inspiration in music. After a lifetime of working solely to support his family, Pete was finally able to pursue his love of music in 2008. Foraging his path by playing local pubs in Germany and the UK, Pete began to make a name for himself in the world of country music. His entrepreneurial style resulted in the formation of his own label, KEMC Records and his first EP. From there, he caught the eye of CMR Nashville’s Lee Williams, who brought Pete to Nashville to play his first show at Cadillac Ranch as a representative of Ireland for the International Artist Showcase prior to the 2011 CMA Awards. He has since released his first album, The Nashville Sessions Volume 1, which has received critical acclaim and was named UK Album of the Year at the 2012 British Country Music Awards. The music video for his British Country Music Award nominated single, “I Am The One,” can be viewed here.
