Additionally, Aldean has received PLATINUM certification for his recent three-week No. one single "Take A Little Ride."  The first single off his PLATINUM, No. one album NIGHT TRAIN, "Take A Little Ride" was Aldean's highest chart debut, landing in the Top 20 its first week.  Aldean's current single and the follow up to "Take A Little Ride," the fan-favorite track "The Only Way I Know" feat.

The group's debut album for MCA Records, It Goes Without Saying, spawned four UK Top 30 hits, earning them a supporting spot on tour with Robbie Williams before the band split up in the midst of creating their sophomore album. Doyle then relocated to Nashville and began crafting and independently releasing the EPs The End of Fear, Values and VirtuesMiddletown, and Songs From The Nuclear War Vol. 1 & 2. In 2012, Doyle won Guitar Center’s Singer-Songwriter competition, beating out 17,000 competitors and receiving a three-song EP by Grammy Award-winning producer John Shanks. Now partnered with CTK Management and Neil Warnock of The Agency Group, the Shanks-produced, full-length album Josh Doyle was released on Oct. 23, 2012, and features the single “Solarstorms.”

 New Radio Single To Hit Radio Beginning Next Week

Deer Park, TX  - Fresh off a Top 5 Texas charting hit with "Ride of Your Life," A-Blake Records recording artist Jason Cassidy is releasing his latest single, "Blame It On Waylon"* to radio stations in Texas on January 21 and nationally on January 28. Written by Josh Thompson and Rhett Akins and produced by Greg Hunt  (Rosewood Studios, Tyler, Texas), the single is being distributed and marketed by Smith Music Group. Hunt served as producer on "Ride Of Your Life," which was also a success for the promotion team at Smith. National radio promotion will be handled by A-Blake Records' newly appointed VP of Promotion & Acquisition, David Newmark.

Keeping to his word to "keep it country," this anthem, much like Cassidy's first self-penned #1 "Honky Tonk Heaven," has the traditional 4/4 beat, signature guitar riffs and honky tonk references, and is another Cassidy tribute to the greats of traditional and outlaw country who started it all.

"Traditional country is where my heart is and the feel of this song will remind everyone that it's the outlaws like Waylon, Willie, Merle and Kris that set the standard for true country music," stated Cassidy.

Implicating Jennings and "all them other outlaws," Cassidy uses his deep vocals to place blame for his wild ways squarely on the shoulders of the legends. Delivering the tale in such a style  that is reminiscent of the old, yet edgy enough for the pop country generation of modern country listeners, the song is getting rave reviews from fans and critics alike:

"'Blame It On Waylon' is current, make no mistake about it, but it will take you back to the time of 4/4 beats and the Outlaw days. Somewhere, the Big 'Hoss is smiling down..."
Chuck Dauphin,

"'Blame It On Waylon' showcases everything there's to like about Jason Cassidy's approach to Modern Country Music. It's his best single yet."
Matt Bjorke,

"This is a great single that captures the feel of pure classic country while it tells a very unique story mixed with a wonderful beat.  It's a song, if given the chance, that will capture the hearts of many Waylon Jennings fans while it intrigues today's country music fans."
Gina Singerhouse, Strictly Country

"Putting the blame where it lays, Jason Cassidy has a highly-probable stone-cold country hit in his  latest single release, 'Blame It On Waylon.'"
Mary Jane Farmer, Scene In Town

A February video shoot for "Blame It On Waylon" is being planned in Nashville and fans can expect a throwback feel to the days of real country when the lyrical heroes wore scuffed cowboy boots, worn-in hats and played in whiskey-soaked bars with beat-up guitars that could tell a story or two.

"Blame It On Waylon," is the first single from Cassidy's sophomore album, KEEP IT COUNTRY, due to hit shelves in May 2013. Hunt, who has worked with such artists as Steve Holy, LeAnn Rimes, and Perfect Stranger, will be at the helm as producer. The compilation will feature two of Cassidy's self-penned tunes as well as the songwriting credits of such acts as Vern Gosdin, Hank Cochran, Larry Bastian, Jamey Johnson, and Jerrod Nieman.

Known by his fans for having an energetic live show filled with emotion and a good time, Cassidy has been hitting the road with some of the best: Eli Young Band, Kevin Fowler, Easton Corbin, The Band Perry, Montgomery Gentry, Joe Nichols and a host of others.

There's sure to be no slow down as Cassidy  gears up for this release by heading out to radio stations, fairs, festivals and shows where he is always accessible for meet and greets with fans.

Tour Dates
1/18 - Lawrence, KS - Granada Theatre w/ Kevin Fowler
1/19 - Stillwater, OK - Tumbleweed Arena w/ Kevin Fowler

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — January 17, 2013 – Legendary artists Billy Ray Cyrus and Don Williams return to the talent agency they first called home, APA. Steve Lassiter, Senior VP, announced the signings today.

“We are thrilled to have Billy Ray Cyrus and Don Williams back into the APA family of artists and very excited about the opportunities that lie ahead,” says Lassiter. “It’s an honor to be representing them again and it’s always a pleasure when former clients come home.”
Billy Ray Cyrus struck it big in June 1992 with his debut album, the eventual 9x-platinum-selling No. 1 Some Gave All, fueled by the best-selling single "Achy Breaky Heart," which spent five weeks atop the Billboard Country chart. Some Gave All (which held the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top 200 chart for 17 weeks in a row and became the best-selling debut album of all time by a male solo artist) launched Cyrus’ colorful 20-year career in the spotlight — during which he has sold millions of albums worldwide, charted nearly 30 singles (including three No. 1 country hits), and racked up multiple film and television credits. His new album, Change My Mind (Blue Cadillac Music), Cyrus’ thirteenth studio album, is a stellar collection of ten songs that hearken back to Cyrus’ roots in bluegrass, Southern rock, gospel, and country music.  Look for Cyrus to release a book this Spring and tour the USA and Australia (dates to be announced soon). For more information on Billy Ray Cyrus, visit
They came to call Don Williams “the Gentle Giant” in the decades he was a dominating country hit maker because of his unique blend of commanding presence and that laid-back, easy style. With hundreds of memorable songs in his repertoire – over fifty of them major hits – Don can still fill an auditorium. This Country Music Hall of Fame inductee released And So It Goes (Sugar Hill) in 2012 and received a GRAMMY nomination in Best Country Duo/Group category for “I Just Came Here for the Music,” a duet with Alison Krauss.
