LARRY GATLIN ADDED TO PERFORMER LINEUP AT TEXAS HERITAGE SONGWRITERS' HALL OF FAME AWARDS SHOW
Gatlin, Toby Keith & Jack Ingram to Join Honorees Ronnie Dunn & Sonny Curtis as Performers at the March 3 Show in Austin, Texas
Nashville, Tenn. (February 27, 2013) – Country music legend LARRY GATLIN will perform this weekend at the 8th Annual Texas Heritage Songwriters’ Hall of Fame Awards Show. The event takes place on Sunday, March 3, 2013 at ACL Live at The Moody Theater in downtown Austin, Texas.
"Texas is my home, Nashville is my home away from home," says Gatlin. "Eight years ago I was voted into the Texas Heritage Songwriters' Hall of Fame and was then and am now very humbled by that great honor."
Each year, the Texas Heritage Songwriters’ Association (TxHSA) honors songwriters during a live Awards Show and induction ceremony—the Hall of Fame inductees are those who embody and celebrate the unique history and culture of Texas through their songwriting. This year’s roster includes legendary artists Ronnie Dunn, Sonny Curtis and Roger Miller.
Gatlin notes, "This year's inductees, Sonny Curtis, Ronnie Dunn and one of my mentors and my great friend, the late Roger Miller, will feel the same way I felt when inducted. Congrats fellars, and welcome to our happy little band."
Honorees Dunn and Curtis will offer a featured performance after accepting their awards. Plus, Jack Ingram will open the show; Gatlin, a TxHSA Hall of Famer, will perform; and country music superstar Toby Keith will deliver a special performance in honor of one of his most loved songwriters of all time, Roger Miller.
This event brings together past Hall of Fame inductees and honors those whose contributions allow Texas songwriters to continue doing what they do best. Every year at the Hall of Fame Awards show, one person is recognized for their support of the songwriting community with The Darrell K. Royal Patron Award. This year’s recipient is the late Robin Ratliff Shivers, Founder of Health Alliance for Austin Musicians (HAAM), longtime philanthropist and enduring supporter of the music community in Austin.
Sunday’s Hall of Fame Awards Show will close out TxHSA’s weekend-long Homecoming celebration, which takes place March 2-3, 2013, and is packed with performances from past inductees, Grammy award nominees and recipients, and renowned songwriters and recording artists.
On Saturday evening, TxHSA will host the Darrell K Royal Songwriters’ Homecoming—a VIP/sponsor party at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum—where Chris Stapleton, Scotty Emerick and Mac McAnally will take the stage for an intimate acoustic performance.

AXS TV Presents Carrie Underwood's "Blown Away Tour" For A Live Television Event
“The Blown Away Tour” Live 2013 Will Air Sunday, March 3
Nashville – (February 27, 2013) – Six time GRAMMY winner Carrie Underwood will bring her critically acclaimed “Blown Away Tour” to AXS TV for a LIVE full concert performance from Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California on Sunday, March 3rd. Named the top female country touring artist of 2012, Underwood is currently on the second leg of the highly successful “Blown Away Tour,” which continues through May throughout the U.S., Canada, and across the pond to the UK and Ireland.
“The Blown Away Tour” Live 2013 is not Underwood’s first appearance on AXS TV. The multiple award-winning artist gave the network’s nightly live music news, trends and interview program, AXSLive, an exclusive backstage interview and live look in to “The Blown Away Tour” when it stopped at STAPLES CENTER located in the heart of the network’s home campus, L.A. LIVE. Video: http://youtu.be/hBmlPBv3YTA.
Underwood says, "I've had the opportunity to play in so many wonderful cities and venues on this tour and still have many more to go, but I am so excited that AXS TV has given us the opportunity to be able to share the concert experience live with fans at home. It's going to be a great night!"
"Carrie Underwood and AXS TV share two undeniable traits: a love for live music and passionate country music fans. I am thrilled to personally welcome Carrie to the AXS TV cadre of live LIVE artists. Fans will not be disappointed by the front row seat we give them to The Blown Away Tour on March 3rd," said AXS TV Chairman Mark Cuban.
Concert review critics praised Carrie throughout “The Blown Away Tour’s” 2012 run…
“Carrie Underwood very well may be the most powerful vocalist in all of country music- not just right now, when she’s considered the reigning queen of the genre, but of the last decade or two.”
-Orange County Register
“Underwood is, without question, one of her generation’s most formidable vocalists.”
-Fort Worth Star Telegram
“Underwood showed why she is one of popular music’s most widely celebrated and adored performers with brow-raising notes few can hit, much less consistently sustain. Each note on her range, belted high or softly sung, showed why she was the best in the country and continues to grow.”
AXS TV is the premier destination for 100% live concerts on television. With more pure live events than any other network, AXS TV brings fans an unparalleled music experience designed specifically for the AXS TV audience who loves music and believes in being a fan first.

Carrie Underwood, who has sold over 15 million albums and has achieved 16 #1 singles, debuted Blown Away at #1 atop Billboard’s Top Country Albums and all-genre Billboard 200 charts. Her fourth studio album, “Blown Away” has been certified RIAA PLATINUM and earned her a 2012 American Music Award for Favorite Country Album. The critically acclaimed and fan-favorite album has also spawned #1 hits with “Good Girl” and the title track, “Blown Away,” which also earned her a sixth GRAMMY award for “Best Country Solo Performance.”
