LADY ANTEBELLUM UNVEILS THE LEAD SINGLE “DOWNTOWN”
OFF UPCOMING FOURTH STUDIO ALBUM

Trio Makes Plans to Debut “Downtown” on 
The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Talk

Nashville, TN – Jan. 22, 2013 – GRAMMY winning trio Lady Antebellum is hitting the street with “Downtown” today, the lead single off their upcoming fourth studio album. The album’s first track is available now via Play MPE.
   
“There's some sass to this track that makes it really fun to sing…it's definitely a roll down the windows and bob your head kind of thing,” said Lady A’s Hillary Scott. “We thought it was a fun way to launch the next record and a fitting preview of what's to come!"
 
Lady A will debut the track next week on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (Jan. 28) and fans can catch a second performance the following week on CBS’s The Talk (Feb. 6). The group also announced this week that they will collaborate with Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks for an all new CMT CROSSROADS episode set to tape next week in Los Angeles and air later this year.

About The Warren Brothers: Since 2003, Brett and Brad Warren have been earning praise for their work as songwriters. From the initial buzz of Tim McGraw’s single, “Who Are They?,” to co-writing with the likes of Lynyrd Skynrd and Toby Keith, the brothers have helped pen a string of hits with Martina McBride and Van Zant, and other popular acts before composing their first #1, “Feel That Fire,” with Dierks Bentley in 2009.  Musicians themselves, the brothers have played arena tours with superstars like Tim McGraw, Faith Hill and Brooks & Dunn, and though the majority of their work is done behind the scenes, the pair are most recognized for their appearance on the CMT reality series, Barely Famous.
 
About Thomas Rhett: Hailing from Valdosta, GA, music has been a part of twenty-two-year-old Thomas Rhett’s life for as long as he can remember. He grew up in a musical family watching father Rhett Akins work as an artist and a hit songwriter. In high school, Thomas Rhett dabbled in songwriting and playing guitar before forming a band with some friends. In 2010, while still a student at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Thomas Rhett signed his first publishing deal with EMI and shortly thereafter signed a record contract with The Valory Music Co. He worked with famed producer Jay Joyce on his debut album, which is due out this year and features the Top 15 and climbing “Beer With Jesus” and his Top 15 debut single, “Something To Do With My Hands.” As a songwriter, he has penned two Jason Aldean cuts – “I Ain’t Ready To Quit” and “1994.” In February he will join Aldean’s NIGHT TRAIN TOUR, being the first-ever Country concert to play Fenway Park in Boston. Thomas Rhett has previously toured with Toby Keith, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert and Brantley Gilbert among others.

MARY BETH CROSS CELEBRATES PIONEER SPIRIT OF AMERICAN FRONTIER WITH CD 'BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL'

FOLK-AMERICANA ARTIST MARY BETH CROSS CELEBRATES PIONEER
SPIRIT OF AMERICAN FRONTIER WITH CD 'BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL'

Denver Artist Invited to perform in February at Folk Alliance Conference in Toronto

          

           DENVER (January 2013) – Denver folk-Americana singer-songwriter Mary Beth Cross will celebrate the release of her fourth CD with a special concert and signing from 4-6 p.m. Jan 27 (Sunday) at Fourteen Seventy-Two Lowcountry Dining, 1472 Pearl St. in Denver.

            In related news, the artist has been invited to perform at the 2013 Folk Alliance Conference in Toronto. Cross will take the stage with other artists on Feb. 20 for the "Musicians United for Bristol Bay" concert". She also will perform at a special showcase for music industry professionals on Feb. 23.

            Recorded in Nashville, “Beyond Good and Evil” gives voice to the pioneer spirit of the American frontier with original songs and cover tunes. Cross spent the past year penning songs reflecting the grit and determination of the adventurers who blazed a trail from the East to the West in search of what they treasured most: beauty, adventure, land, new opportunities for work, and freedom from oppression.

            Acoustic instrumentation was carefully chosen to highlight the historical time period for each song. The music represents a few of the cultures that have contributed to what has become American music today, including the banjos of African immigrants; the pipes, whistles and percussion of Celtic music makers in the British Isles; and the horns, accordions and fiddles of French cafes.

            “All of these are part of the collective tapestry of a country that continues to forge on and grow despite great adversity,” said Cross, whose goal was to create an "authentic sound" that changes the folk-Americana landscape. “The choices, sacrifice and yearning for a place that feels like home remain timeless."

            The free event at Fourteen Seventy-Two Lowcountry Dining in Denver will include live music, hors d’oeuvres, a full bar, and prize giveaways.

             Cross uses soaring, pure-tone soprano vocals to help bring her story-driven songs to life.

            The foot-tapping tune "Kiss You Goodnight" was inspired by the Chilean copper miners who were trapped underground for 60 days with nothing but darkness and time on their hands. One of the miners emerged to find both his wife and mistress waiting for him.

            "The upbeat rhythms in the song led the session musicians to imagine the miner digging a tunnel out the back to avoid his confrontation of being found out by both women," Cross noted.

            A tour of Dolly's House Museum, a historic brothel house in Ketchikan, Alaska, prompted Cross to write the fiddle-accented "Stories Never Told". The artist sings a fun but heart-rending story of a dusty prospector who uses his gold for prostitutes and whiskey, only to die on a dirt trail with a bullet wound to the head.  History books did not record his name.

            The title cut for "Beyond Good and Evil" is an expression of the former nurse's desire to help make the world a better place through education, caring and helping others.  The tender ballad ends with the words, "I'd rather light a candle than waste my life cursing the dark."

             "The idea for the album came while I was reading Nietzsche's book, 'Beyond Good and Evil'," Cross added. "I was exploring the impetus to move West and the feelings surrounding the need for change. At one time or another, we all feel the need to break free from a cage of any kind. Sometimes that is imagined, other times real. Like the westward pioneer adventurers, we make the choice to stay, leave, act, or not act. We just hope we can be happy with our choice in the end."

            "Beyond Good and Evil" was produced, recorded and mixed by Dave Bechtel at Playground Recording Studio in Nashville. The album features Cross on lead and background vocals; eight-time IBMA "Fiddler of the Year" Stuart Duncan on fiddle, mandolin and banjo; Matthew Pierson on acoustic and electric bass; Mike Payne on acoustic and six-string guitar; Blair Masters on piano, accordion, organ and melodica; Ken Lewis on drums and percussion; Paul Nelson on cello; Michael Douchette on dobro; Gary Pigg on background vocals; and Bechtel on whistle.

            The CD is being promoted nationally to folk-Americana radio by Nashville-based Bill Wence Promotions.  Whiting Publicity & Promotions is handling publicity.

            "There has always been and always will be an urge to improve one's station in life, to move on when things are not working out or when someone does not feel valued," Cross continued. "People moved West for more land, the opportunity for work, farmland to feed their families, and a sense of community.  Those are the same reasons people move West today."

            "Beyond Good and Evil" is receiving rave reviews.

            "What is so compelling about Mary Beth's music to me is that it both educates and moves me," Bechtel said. "Her love and understanding of the struggles of the people for whom this great country was founded creates compelling stories. For her to tell these stories that so few have ever heard gives a voice to those who were born in a time when not everyone was treated as equal. This reveals Mary Beth's compassionate heart."

            "Through the sweet purity of her voice, Mary Beth has captured the underlying haunting story in 'Babes in the Woods'," said artist Dierdre Keohane, partner of the late Irish songwriter Noel Brazil. I know Noel would be proud of this version."

            An accomplished vocalist and tunesmith, Cross moved to Denver in the 1980s to pursue a nursing career. Her music is influenced by the rural farmland and forests of her Wisconsin upbringing and the Rocky Mountains where she currently resides. The artist has emerged on the regional and national music scene with appearances on radio station KRFC-FM’s “Live @ Lunch” show at Colorado State University and musical performances at the Spiritual Project’s “10th Anniversary Gala” at the University of Denver, the Summit Foundation’s “Great Rubber Duck Races” in Breckenridge, Colo., and the “Rockygrass Academy Band Scramble” in Lyons, Colo.

            Cross, who holds a nursing degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, will speak and perform at the National Association of School Nurses annual conference in Orlando, Fla., in June 2013. Other upcoming musical performances include the "Musicians United for Bristol Bay" concert at the Folk Alliance Conference in Toronto on Feb. 20; the "Newcomer Showcase" concert at the Folk Alliance Conference in Toronto on Feb. 23; a concert for the Swallow Hill Music Association in Denver on March 14; a concert for the Black Rose Acoustic Society in Colorado Springs, Colo., on April 12; and a concert for the Living Water Spiritual Community in Arvada, Colo., on June 15.

RANDY HOUSER’S NEW ALBUM HOW COUNTRY FEELS NOW AVAILABLE

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (Tuesday, January 22, 2013) – Stoney Creek Records’ Randy Houser shows the world “How Country Feels” today with the release of his new album now available in stores, on iTunes and everywhere music is sold. The 15-track release features seven songs co-written by Houser including the poignant ballad “Power Of A Song,” which Alanna Conaway of American Songwriter says “will knock a listener off their feet,” the biographical “Route 3 Box 250D” which showcases the singer’s childhood in Mississippi, and the first No. 1 smash hit of his career “How Country Feels,” which tops the charts this week on BDS/Billboard and Country Aircheck/Mediabase/USA Today.
 
Bill Friskics-Warren of the Washington Post notes, “He’s back with ‘How Country Feels,’ a buoyant, hook-filled outing that seems to have the Mississippi native angling for Nashville’s softer, feel-good center,” and Brian Mansfield of USA Today adds, “Want to know how country feels? Listen past the title hit’s seven-gen heartland rock. When Houser sings about songs themselves, and why not all who love them can live them, his nuanced Mississippi drawl becomes part of the story.”
 
Echoing opinions in Music City, Country Weekly's Tammy Ragusa brings attention to Houser’s long-standing industry cred writing, “Nashville’s country music insiders have known for some time that Randy Houser is one of the finest male vocalists the community has ever welcomed.”

NEW ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Lucky Ned Pepper


NEW ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Lucky Ned Pepper
By Bob Doerschuk
© 2013 CMA Close Up® News Service / Country Music Association®, Inc.
If Westerns are your type of film, then the name Lucky Ned Pepper might ring a bell: It’s the bad guy in True Grit, a nasty, cantankerous character typical of those that prowled the plains and prairies. It’s also the name Josh Graham and Rick Russell chose for their new duo.
While there’s nothing particularly villainous about these two Bakersfield-based singers, they do infuse their music with some wide-open, big-sky flavor. The songs on their debut album, Get Lucky, are contemporary, each written by some of the best songwriters along Music Row. But they look at home in scuffed boots, jeans and farmland fashion. Their singing complements these images by evoking the courtliness, swagger and easy-going humor of cowboy life.
Graham and Russell have been around long enough to season their sound with experience. For 13 years they were members of the Smokin’ Armadillos. When the group split, they went their separate ways until 2005, when Russell invited Graham to join in on a solo project. They formalized their partnership as Lucky Ned Pepper in 2009 and began laying the tracks that led to Get Lucky.
The opener and first single, “I Remember the Music,” sets the stage. Written by Ashley Gorley and Wade Kirby, it’s a nostalgic but spirited recollection of good times and the music that accompanied them. From the celebratory “I Oughta Own This Bar” (Max T. Barnes and Kendell Marvel) to the lost-love requiem “Santa Fe” (Larry Bastian and Bo Allen), often with sweet additional harmonies from Joy Sampson, they paint a picture that’s rooted in memory yet as immediate as today.
IN THEIR OWN WORDS
CD IN YOUR STEREO
RUSSELL: “Chris Young … Neon.” GRAHAM: “I don’t know. It’s broke!”
SONG YOU SING IN THE SHOWER
RUSSELL: “Lucky Ned Pepper songs!”
BOOK ON YOUR NIGHTSTAND
GRAHAM: “The Bible and Keith Richards’ autobiography, Life. Now, there are two extremes!”
MUSICAL HERO
GRAHAM: “Well, it sounds pretty cliché right now, but my first concert ever was George Strait, and I was hooked every since. It made me sick hearing that he'll be done touring in 2014 … such an inspiration.” RUSSELL: “Garth Brooks.”
PET PEEVE
GRAHAM: “Anything anyone does before 7 AM.” RUSSELL: “Lying.”
ACTOR TO PORTRAY YOU IN A BIOPIC
GRAHAM: “Johnny Depp. OK, he doesn’t look anything like me, but how frickin’ cool would that be?!” RUSSELL: “Kurt Russell, because I’m related to him … not really!”
FAVORITE MODE OF TRANSPORTATION
GRAHAM: “I love to fly.” RUSSELL: “My pickup truck.”
LUCKY CHARM
RUSSELL: “My Oklahoma Sooners money clip.” GRAHAM: “I don’t believe in luck. God seems to have everything good taken care of already.”
SOMETHING WE’D NEVER GUESS ABOUT YOU
RUSSELL: “I can break dance.” GRAHAM: “Guess.”

HANK WILLIAMS NOW AVAILABLE FOR MOVIE, TV & ADVERTISING

RARE LIVE PERFORMANCES FROM HANK WILLIAMS
NOW AVAILABLE FOR MOVIE, TV & ADVERTISING USAGE
DIRECTLY FROM HANK WILLIAMS ESTATE

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 22, 2013) – This year marks both the 90th anniversary of country giant Hank Williams’ birth and the 60th year remembrance of his tragic death.  Within the thirty year timeframe of his life, Williams became the cornerstone of country music and one of the key influencers of artists from all genres. Songs such as “Lovesick Blues,” “There’s a Tear In My Beer,” “Hey Good Looking,” “I’m a Long Gone Daddy” and numerous others remain timeless classics.

Now, the Hank Williams Estate, overseen by his children Jett Williams and Hank Williams, Jr., is making over 200 live performance recordings directly available to movie houses, television production companies, and advertising agencies, where before these rare live recordings had never been accessible for licensing directly from the Estate.

"After years of litigation and tribulation, we can now make these recordings available directly from the Hank Williams Estate, as well as make a decision in a heartbeat,” adds Keith Adkinson, lawyer for the Hank Williams Estate.  “This will only allow for a little more Hank out in the entertainment world.”

“I am honored to join my brother Hank Williams, Jr. in making available these original recordings of our dad for multi-media use,” says Jett Williams.  “Many experts have said they are better than the MGM masters.  You decide--but we can carry on the legacy of my dad with pride.”

“Daddy’s music has lasted decades and is being discovered by a new generation of fans.  Not only did he influence country artists, but he also crossed over to influence rock artists,” says Hank Williams Jr. “Today, the Williams legacy continues to endure with the release of these recordings for movies, commercials, documentaries, among others things.”

Hank Williams’ songs can be heard in approximately 100 movies and television shows including “Shawshank Redemption,” “M*A*S*H,” “The Last Picture Show,” “Steel Magnolias,” “The Wonder Years,” “The Beverly Hillbillies,” “Forrest Gump,” “Nurse Betty,” “Cars,” “Cold Case,” “Rango,” and more as well as an advertising campaign from Pepsi.
