Corey Wagar Joins Up With Holiday Express Again

Corey Wagar Joins Up With Holiday Express Again to Spread Christmas Cheer
 
After a whirlwind year of success, Corey Wagar is ready to wrap it all up in style and give back to those in need as she continues her involvement with Holiday Express. She will work alongside this non-profit organization to deliver music, food, gifts, financial support and friendship to those who need it most this holiday season.
 
“I saw first hand all of the amazing things that Holiday Express can do and I am so excited to be a part of it for the third year,” Corey says. “What an incredible experience this will be and I feel lucky to be able to spread a little cheer in every way that I can.”

This New Jersey native will join over 100 other professional musicians on the Holiday Express tour, as they deliver the gift of human kindness throughout NJ. They will bring music, fun and the joy of the season to children and adults who are disabled, homeless, living with AIDS, isolated elderly and others in need throughout the tri-state area.
 
President and Founder of Holiday Express, Tim McLoone, created this organization to deliver hope to those in need. “The people we serve every year have it much worse than any of us can imagine. And probably the worst part is, in many cases, the absence of hope," states McLoone. "We are proud to have Corey with us as she climbs the ladder of musical success. She understands that part of being an entertainer is giving freely of your talent to those in need. It's what we do."

With the unique spirit and powerful vocals of her signature “Jersey meets Nashville” style, Corey Wagar’s most recent single, Take Ya Back was co-written with hit makers Cece Dubois and Beau Fuller and was produced by the legendary Kent Wells (Dolly Parton). This sweet and sassy gal has been making her way to the top of the Music Row CountryBreakout chart each week, including getting the #1 slot on the Renegade Radio Nashville/Nashville.com Hot 40 Countdown. Corey’s spunky personality has served her well, opening for acts like Dierks Bentley, The Charlie Daniels Band and LeAnn Rimes, and she even made her mark on Hollywood this past season of American Idol. With a rapidly growing fan base, killer talent, and crowd-stopping vocal ability, country music’s latest spitfire is bound to have wildfire success. For more information on Corey and to see the video for Take Ya Back, please visit www.coreywagar.com. 

About Holiday Express: Every year, this Monmouth County, NJ non-profit, non sectarian organization “has grown in reputation, in volunteer members and in reach. The band currently boasts more than 70 singers and musicians from noted bands and the Broadway stage. Our general volunteers offer countless ideas, skills and talents. The group visits more than 50 institutions every year between November and the end of December, bringing its unique brand of music, food, presents and pure joy to people who need the gift of human kindness.”
 
The Holiday Express, which was founded by Tim McLoone, had numerous celebrity appearances which included Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, and others. They were also the band for the Rockefeller Center tree lighting in New York for 3 years, appeared on The Today Show twice and was profiled on NBC’s Nightly News with Brian Williams.

Roughstock.com recently proclaimed Craig “…one of the most promising neo-traditionalist country music artists…today.” His new single “Outta My Head” is a high-octane up-tempo track with an evocative lyric that describes the struggle of lost love. Produced by Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band) and Matt Rovey and written by Brandon Kinney, Michael Carter, and Cole Swindell, the mesmerizing track showcases Campbell’s rich, warm baritone and expansive range.  The mind-bending music video, directed by Mason Dixon can be seen HERE.

ABOUT CRAIG CAMPBELL: After moving from his hometown of Lyons, Georgia to Nashville in 2002 to pursue his country music dreams, American Country Awards nominee Craig Campbell quickly picked up work as a keyboardist in Luke Bryan and Tracy Byrd’s bands and was later discovered playing a regular gig at legendary Nashville honky-tonk, The Stage. The singer-songwriter has earned well-deserved praise from the country’s toughest critics for his self-titled debut album, which released in April of 2011. Campbell’s autobiographical lead single, “Family Man” was a top 15 hit followed by “Fish” which has sold a quarter of a million downloads. His current smash "Outta My Head" is the title track to his recently released 5-song digital EP and the lead single from his sophomore album, set to release on Bigger Picture early next year. To learn more about Craig, visit www.craigcampbell.tv and follow him on Twitter @craigcampbelltv.

THE NEW BLACK 7 TO RELEASE NEW MINI ALBUM ON VANITY MUSIC GROUP



THE NEW BLACK 7 TO RELEASE NEW MINI ALBUM ON VANITY MUSIC GROUP


(Des Moines, IA - 12 December 2012)  Iowa based Country Rock newcomers The New Black 7 will release their new mini album, Hangovers & Heartbreak on 22 January 2013 through upstart label Vanity Music Group. 

The eight song affair, recorded at Chandler Limited Studios in Shell Rock, IA, was produced by singer / guitarist Tory Stoffregen and Wake Goeke and mixed by Cedrick Courtois (Destiny's Child, Beyonce, Earshot).  With songs like "Crazy All Over Me ("The upside down relationship song everyone can all relate to! Growing up and living in a small town we all know this person and maybe it is even one of us who gets a little crazy when it comes to the opposite sex. We have all seen those friends and have surely been that friend at one time or another"), That Don't Sound Like Country" ("Inspired by a radio dj who told us we weren't country enough on the first CD, We turned on country radio and to this day wonder what he was listening to. Growing up we were all exposed to all different kinds of music and it all mixes together to make The New Black 7.  Call it what you want"), and "Closing Time" ('A scandalous romp through every bar in America on a Friday night! A fun song that would make Dwight Yoakam or The Beatles equally as proud") as well as a red dirt style cover of Motley Crue's classic "Kickstart My Heart", Made up of equal parts Shooter Jennings, Blackberry Smoke and .38 Special, Hangovers & Heartbreak is designed to give you a swift kick to the backside

"Everything about this record came together very organically," says drummer Brentt Arcement. "Hangovers and Heartbreak is what I consider a quintessential follow up for an indie band. Considering we wrote, produced, engineered, and recorded the whole  record ourselves, I think we did a great job not letting our creative flow become compromised by wearing all the hats!" Frontman, Tory Stoffregen adds, "Everything about this cd just came together perfectly. The songs are all real pieces of my life. Recording them ranged from heartbreaking to laughing out loud and jumping up and down with excitement,  I think all those emotions really show through when you're listening to these songs."

Hangovers & Heartbreak will be preceded by the band's first single, "Crazy All Over Me" on 8 January 2013

Lady Antebellum "This Christmas" auf hr1 CD der Woche!

Lady Antebellum's Weihnachtsalbum hr1-"CD der Woche" - "This Christmas" in den hr1-Hörercharts wählbar
 
 On This Winter's Night
Lady Antebellum, die Countrypop-Band aus Nashville, die der hessische Radiosender hr1 bereits im Sommer auf ihrer ersten Deutschlandtour präsentiert hatte, stellt mit ihrem Weihnachtsalbum "On This Winter's Night" die aktuelle hr1-CD der Woche. Pro Tag wird von der hr1-Musikredaktion ein Titel aus dem Album vorgestellt und in der Sendung hr1-VITA zwischen 10 und 12 Uhr gespielt. Da hr1 jedes Jahr auf der Suche nach "der etwas anderen Weihnachtsmusik" ist, kam das Weihnachtsalbum von Lady Antebellum genau zum richtigen Zeitpunkt. Außerdem ist die Single "This Christmas" als Neuvorstellung in den hr1-Hörercharts vertreten und kann dort an die Spitze gewählt werden.
 
Die Musikredaktion von hr1 glaubt, dass Modern Country für ihre Hörerschaft durchaus massenkompatibel ist. Auch das letzte Album der Band war daher bereits als hr1-CD der Woche ausgewählt worden. Der beste Beweis wäre natürlich ein überzeugendes Ergebnis bei den Abstimmungen der hr1-CHARTS, denn Hörer-Feedback wird mit jedem weiteren Klick und mit jeder Mail(an hr1@hr-online) immer wertvoller. Vielleicht lohnt es sich in diesem Zusammenhang auch, der hr1-Musikredaktion Vorschläge mit weiteren Künstlernamen und Bands zu schicken, die man gerne in hr1 hören würde.
