CHARLEY PRIDE TO PERFORM AT
2013 BLACK TIE & BOOTS INAUGURAL BALL
Nashville, Tenn. (January 16, 2013) - As the new year gets underway, Country Music Hall of Famer Charley Pride is off to an exciting start with a scheduled performance at the 2013 Black Tie & Boots Inaugural Ball, taking place later this week. Held at the Gaylord National Resort in the nation's capital, and sponsored by the Texas State Society of Washington, D.C., the Black Tie & Boots Inaugural Ball will be held this Saturday, January 19, and is one of the largest events scheduled to take place during the upcoming Inaugural festivities. The event is expected to draw more than 15,000 guests and will also feature a number of other performers including Radney Foster and Asleep At The Wheel.
“I am pleased and honored to be a part of this event that celebrates President Obama and the start of his second term in office—it’s truly wonderful to be asked to perform,” says Pride. “The Texas State Society knows how to throw a great party, so I’m looking forward to a very memorable evening.”
This marks Pride's second time performing in Washington D.C. during an Inauguration-related event. Pride performed during a Capital Centre gala celebrating President Ronald Reagan's Inauguration on January 20, 1981.
Pride wrapped up 2012 with a number of recognitions and achievements. In addition to his tours of Ireland and the United Kingdom, he was inducted into the IEBA (International Entertainment Buyers Association) Hall of Fame.
And in October 2012, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History & Culture honored Pride during an event in Dallas, TX. Pride has donated many items to the museum’s collection of historical artifacts including his 1971 CMA Award for “Country Male Vocalist of the Year”; his 1972 “Best Sacred Performance” Grammy Award (for his recently reissued Did You Think To Pray album); a Fender guitar and case from his early years as a professional performer; a bat and glove from his baseball career; letters from Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard Nixon; and a collection of vintage clothing that includes tour outfits, suits, sweaters, USO jackets and a Texas Rangers uniform. Many of these relics are expected to be included as part of the National Museum of African American History & Culture's permanent collection when it opens in 2015 on the National Mall in Washington D.C.
With shows already performed in Grant, Oklahoma, and Lincoln City, Oregon, Pride began 2013 with a bang and plans to keep the tour trail hot with a May 2013 swing through Canada. Shortly after the Inaugural Ball, Pride will be heading to Arizona to continue his annual tradition of working out with the Texas Rangers during spring training.

The Carter Brothers Band Returns From Week In Key West, Celebrates Fan Club's Fifth Anniversary
Compass Records Act Performs At Hog's Breath Saloon Amid Fan Club Festivities
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 16, 2013) - Compass Records recording artist
the Carter Brothers Band has returned from a seven-night run in Key West, Fla., where the musicians hung out with fans from across the United States to commemorate the official fan club's fifth anniversary during the day and performed to standing-room-only crowds during the night at the popular Hog's Breath Saloon.
A few fans take a break from the dancing and smile for the camera while Compass Records recording act the Carter Brothers Band plays at Hog's Breath Saloon,
Key West, Fla.
"We left Key West after a week of playing music we love, being with people we genuinely have come to care about and 80-degree weather and came home to Nashville's icy cold. Let's go back to Key West!" says vocalist/guitarist Danny Carter, laughing.
"The week really was memorable," says Tim Carter, vocalist/banjo and mandolinist. "Each night, we were surrounded by some of the finest people you'll ever meet - it's a bonus that they love the Carter Brothers music! It felt like a family reunion!"
Alex Counts, founder of The Carter Brothers Fan Club, organized multiple activities throughout the week for the fan club members who traveled to Florida's southernmost tip, including a celebration luncheon. The luncheon/mixer is a tradition that has occurred for the past four years.
"This past week marked the fifth anniversary of the official start of the Carter Brothers Fan Club," Counts says, "so several of the diehard fans decided to travel to Key West to celebrate with our fan club's namesake! The week couldn't have been better! We sang, danced, ate, made new friends, visited with old ones and added lots
of embarrassing pictures to the Fan Club scrapbook! Priceless!"

In addition to the nightly shows and fan club gatherings, the band headlined a fundraiser for local resident and friend, Katharine Doughty, who is recovering from breast cancer. Many local musicians also participated in the concert for Doughty, a local artisan, including Ericson Holt on keyboards, Richard Crooks on drums and Poco singer Paul Cotton.
The Carter Brothers is scheduled to return to Key West and Hog's Breath Saloon in April; visit carterbrothersband.com for specific dates.
The Carter Brothers Fan Club Annual Luncheon -
"Actually, it's a friends' club.": Rosalie Caudle, fan club member
About The Carter Brothers:
"Tim and Dan are blood related to A.P., Sarah and Maybelle Carter but they don't make a big deal out of it. Like their mama, who taught them to rinse collard greens in the Maytag, (the Carter Brothers) make their old-timey music with tried and true ingredients and modern appliances," says esteemed mandolinist and vocalist Tim O'Brien, friend to Tim and Danny Carter.
Coupling exemplary musicianship with the kind of tight harmony only siblings can claim, the Carter Brothers have been performing around the country... and the world... to adoring fans for more than two decades. Natives of High Point, N.C., Tim and Danny Carter moved to Nashville 15 years ago, quickly earning respect that crossed musical genres. After years of producing and releasing their music themselves, the brothers signed a recording contract in 2011 with Compass Records.
The Road To Roosky, the Carter Brothers' first Compass Records CD, was released in 2012, garnering accolades and praise from around the world for its melding of bluegrass and blues.
"I've been playing with my brother for so long and he's such a blues guitar player that all of that rubbed off on my playing through the years. I wanted to make sure that the banjo on this was not so much about playing Earl Scruggs style banjo but that (the banjo) fit these tunes," says Tim Carter of his playing on The Road To Roosky.
The act's next CD, Where the Green Grass Meets The Bluegrass, is due out in 2013 on Compass Records. The project features the Carter Brothers and Barney McKenna, renowned Irish banjo player of the The Dubliners in McKenna's final recordings before his death in 2012.
