When Bluegrass takes a walk on the Gospel side . . .

Dailey & Vincent
When Bluegrass takes a walk on the Gospel side . . .

The Gospel Side of Dailey & Vincent
Nominated for Best Bluegrass Album
at the 55th GRAMMY® Awards

“The duo of Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent has cracked open the formalism of religious string-band music by reaching out to mainstream country and even some humor to create an irresistible album. Of course, it helps that their duet singing is prettier than just about anyone’s.”
-The Washington Post

“ . . . a Spirit-filled tour de force of hair-raising vocal harmony that crosses Bill Monroe with Bill Gaither and counts off various stripes of country-gospel like so many flowers on the wall, with Southern gospel, old-timey spirituals and mountain-music styles sharing a pew with tunes from Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton and Buck Owens.”
-Country Weekly

“ . . . built around the exquisite harmonies that Jamie and Darrin seem to bring to everything they sing.”
-Bluegrass Today

“ . . . the music lacks nothing in the way of excellent performance and good spirit.”
-Bluegrass Unlimited

“ . . . their strength is the kind of close harmony that made the Louvins and McReynolds household names in country music . . .”
-Country Standard Time

  • The Gospel Side of Dailey & Vincent debuted in January 2012 at #1 on Billboard magazine’s Top Bluegrass Albums Chart and at #3 on the Top Contemporary Christian Chart.  Click here to listen to samples of each of the 12 tracks.
  • This is the second GRAMMY® nomination for Dailey & Vincent. The first was in 2011 for the song “Elizabeth” from Dailey & Vincent Sing the Statler Brothers, which was nominated for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals.
  • Both nominated projects were released on Rounder Records and are available exclusively through Cracker Barrel Old Country Store®.

CRAIG CAMPBELL TO SING NATIONAL ANTHEM AT PACKERS LAMBEAU FIELD DEC 23

CRAIG CAMPBELL TO SING NATIONAL ANTHEM
AT PACKERS LAMBEAU FIELD DEC 23


Nashville, TN...(December 20, 2012)... Watching football is definitely a holiday tradition, but this Sunday Dec 23rd, Craig Campbell has a front row seat as he will be singing the National Anthem as the Green Bay Packers take on the Tennessee Titans. CBS will air the game from Lambeau Field at 12:00pm cst.

Craig recently released his Outta My Head EP which includes brand new songs from his upcoming sophomore album plus his newest hit single “Outta My Head.” The Outta My Head EP is available everywhere digital music is sold and an exclusive version of the EP is available for fans to purchase at Walmart stores nationwide.

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.

Steel Guitar News December 20. 2012

This is Bob Hempker with today’s newsletter which is the last one before Christmas. We will be closed on Christmas Eve so there won’t be a newsletter on Monday. We sometimes forget the newer players that read this newsletter as I was reminded when I was asked the following question. What are the essential songs I need to learn before I join a country band? Usually when you start playing, clubs are your first venture out into the public arena. There are some standard country dance songs that you need to learn. I’ll also suggest you learn them in several different keys in order to play them with different singers. There are several standard 4/4 shuffles almost everybody plays. These are a good starting point for your repertoire. Crazy Arms by Ray Price Heartaches By The Number by Ray Price Big City by Merle Haggard You need to learn a few waltz tunes. The Tennessee Waltz works great, especially if you have an older crowd. Here are some more. I Always Get Lucky With You by George Jones You Look So Good In Love by George Strait There Goes My Everything by Jack Green Rose Colored Glasses by John Conlee Waltz Across Texas by Ernest Tubb Hello Darlin’ by Conway Twitty You need to learn a few slow country ballads. Today I Started Loving You Again by Merle Haggard Your Cheatin’ Heart by Hank Williams Cold, Cold Heart by Hank Williams Amarillo By Mornin’ by George Strait Make The World Go Away by Eddy Arnold Don’t Close Your Eyes by Keith Whitley Together Again by Buck Owens Behind Closed Doors by Charlie Rich Silver Wings by Merle Haggard Somebody in just about every crowd is going to want to hear some Johnny Cash. Folsom Prison Blues and Ring Of Fire are the two most requested ones. You need a few pop/crossover tunes under your belt. Johnny B. Goode by Chuck Berry Kansas City by Wilbert Harrison Mustang Sally by Wilson Pickett Sweet Home Alabama by Lynyrd Skynyrd Gimme Three Steps by Lynyrd Skynyrd A lot of country bands hate those songs but will play them for someone who puts money in the tip jar. You need up-tempo songs for the dancers in the crowd. Jambalaya by Hank Williams Sr. Workin’ Man Blues by Merle Haggard Boot Scootin’ Boogie by Brooks and Dunn Liza Jane by Vince Gill Tulsa Time by Don Williams The Fireman by George Strait Unwound by George Strait Guitars, Cadillacs and Hillbilly Music by Dwight Yoakam Rainy Day Woman by Waylon Jennings Good Hearted Woman by Waylon Jennings Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way by Waylon Jennings Act Naturally by Buck Owens I Think I’ll Just Stay Here And Drink by Merle Haggard Oh Lonesome Me by Don Gibson You want a few swing tunes in the mix. The South’s Gonna Do It Again by Charlie Daniels Route 66 by Asleep At The Wheel San Antonio Rose by Bob Wills A couple of cha-cha type tunes often requested are Neon Moon by Brooks and Dunn and Margaritaville by Jimmy Buffet. Bluesy type things like Night Life by Ray Price are often requested. It’s pretty much mandatory to be able to play You Never Even Called Me By My Name by David Allan Coe even though I hate the song personally. I would encourage you also to categorize songs by artists because so often you’ll hear somebody in the audience yell out, “Play some Jones!” So here’s a quick list of requested artists. George Jones, Hank Williams Sr., Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, Conway Twitty, Ray Price, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Don Gibson, Tom T. Hall, Ronnie Milsap, Don Williams, Johnny Paycheck, Johnny Cash, Vern Gosdin, Alan Jackson, Alabama, Garth Brooks and Charlie Rich. This list if meant to apply to a classic country bar band which is the type of band most likely to employ you. If this isn’t enough to get your started, then send me an email after you learn all of these songs and I’ll give you some more! In the meantime, let me insert this blatant plug for the Tascam GB-10 www.steelguitar.net/tascam.html to help you learn these songs. Follow the link and you’ll find out all the ways it can help you. We also put up a video on YouTube so you can see it in action. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bkje1we7G2g&list=UUk5k2BOJjxzLt6QQkhYVZaQ&index=5 Check out our Christmas specials at http://www.steelguitar.net/christmasspecials.html www.steelguitar.net sales@steelguitar.net www.youtube.com/bobbeseymour Steel Guitar Nashville 123 Mid Town Court Hendersonville, TN. 37075 (615) 822-5555 Open 9AM – 4PM Monday – Friday Closed Saturday and Sunday

Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Last of a Dyin’ Breed” Performance on December 27

The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson
To Re-Air Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Last of a Dyin’ Breed”
Performance on December 27

Nashville, Tenn. (December 20, 2012) — Some things are so good they need to be aired twice.  That’s exactly what producers of the The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson thought when they choose to re-air Lynyrd Skynyrd’s performance of “Last of a Dyin’ Breed.”  Fans can tune into CBS on December 27 at 12:35am/11:35pm CT to catch a performance so rockin’ it had to air twice.

The original performance aired on October 1 while the Rock & Roll Hall of Famers were touring in Los Angeles in support of their latest album, Last Of A Dyin’ Breed.  The album release was their highest charting album since 1977, debuting at No. 14 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart.  With a catalog of over 60 albums, sales beyond 30 million worldwide and their beloved classic American rock anthem “Sweet Home Alabama” having over two million downloaded ringtones, Lynyrd Skynyrd remains a cultural icon that appeals to all generations.  Most recently, they took the stage at the 2012 American Country Music Awards with co-host Trace Adkins to perform "What's Your Name," bringing an audience full of country stars to their feet. The legendary rockers also performed for the Discovery Channel'sChopper Live: The Revenge.”

Led by core members Gary Rossington (guitar), Johnny Van Zant (vocals) and Rickey Medlock (guitar), Lynyrd Skynyrd continues the tremendous legacy that began over 35 years ago in Jacksonville, Florida with their August 21, 2012 release, Last Of A Dyin’ Breed, a legacy that was halted for a decade after the 1977 plane crash that killed three band members, including Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines. Since then, the band tragically lost Billy Powell, Ean Evans, Allen Collins, Leon Wilkeson and Huey Thomasson, yet they continue to forge ahead. Rounding out the line-up is bass player Johnny Colt, an original member of the Black Crowes who recently joined the band, Mark “Sparky” Matejka on guitar, Peter Keys on keyboards, and Dale Krantz Rossington and Carol Chase as the Honkettes backing vocalists.
