TAYLOR MADE TOPS CHARTS TWICE IN SAME WEEK
The Country Recording Trio Hits #1 On New Music Weekly, Indie World Country
The Country Recording Trio Hits #1 On New Music Weekly, Indie World Country
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 12th, 2013) - Adding to an already successful 2013, Little General Records country recording trio Taylor Made has yet another reason to celebrate - their current single, That's What Life Is, landed in the #1 spot on both the New Music Weekly and Indie World Country charts this week. This latest achievement comes after nominations with New Music Weekly for Group of the Year and Single of the Year, as well as the obtainment of a MusicRow Independent Artist of the Year title.
"Every year we do this just keeps getting better and better," said Wendy Duckworth-Williams of Taylor Made. "To take a #1 spot on any chart shows country radio is behind us - we can't begin to thank them enough for that."
Finishing work on their latest, yet-to-be-titled album, the group is also gearing up for a nationwide summer tour. That's What Life Is also continues to climb the Billboard Indicator and MusicRow charts, currently at #40 and #26 respectively.
About Taylor Made:
Born and raised in Taylor County, West Virginia, sibling trio Taylor Made has been performing together since childhood. With a background in church and back porch singing, the trio reformed as I-79 for the Colgate Country Showdown. It was only a matter of time before their sibling harmonies caught the attention of Little General Stores owner Greg Darby, who signed them to his West Virginia-based Little General Records under the new name Taylor Made (after their Taylor County upbringing). In 2011, they released single Good Love off of their EP of the same title, which topped off at #42 on the Billboard Indicator chart and #28 on the MusicRow chart. Their next single, Things You Don't Grow Out Of, took them into the top 40 on Billboard Indicator (#37) and the top 20 on Music Row (#19).

JASON ALDEAN AND OVER 60,000 FANS SET TO
MAKE HISTORY TOMORROW AT FIRST-EVER
UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA STADIUM SHOW
Aldean Named ACM Male Vocalist of the Year Earlier This Week
Nashville, TN – April 12, 2013 – ACM Male Vocalist of the Year Jason Aldean is approaching one of the biggest moments in his career tomorrow as he is set to play for more than 60,000 fans at the University of Georgia’s Sanford Stadium. Aldean is already in Athens preparing for the first show to ever be held there. Tickets for this 2013 NIGHT TRAIN TOUR stop sold out in less than an hour last October.
49 trucks and 27 buses have taken over Sanford Stadium in preparation for the historic event “between the hedges.” Aldean’s crew has been in Athens for four days building one of the biggest outdoor stages in the nation and hanging hundreds of lights, speakers, cameras and high resolution video panels connected with over 3 miles of cable to bring one of the biggest events in country music this year to life. The show will include over 600 staff, pyrotechnics and a helicopter flyover. Fellow Georgians Luke Bryan and Thomas Rhett are also on the bill, along with current tour mate and Florida native Jake Owen.
“It’s been a long road from playing for 10 people just down the street in Macon, GA where I grew up to headlining the stadium of my favorite football team,” said Aldean. “But I feel like that whole road was leading me to this place, at this moment. I was born a Bulldog fan, and I have so many great memories at Sanford through the years. I've been working my whole career to get my live show to this level and I can’t imagine a better place to kick off the stadium shows we're doing this summer. We're about to take tailgating to another level!"
Additionally, Aldean was named Male Vocalist of the Year at Sunday's Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas. He also took home the trophy for Vocal Event of the Year for his No. one song "The Only Way I Know" feat. Luke Bryan and Eric Church, marking his second consecutive win in that category. The third single off his PLATINUM album NIGHT TRAIN, "1994," is currently racing up the Top 20. "1994" comes on the heels of seven consecutive No. one singles and eleven career chart-toppers.
The 2013 NIGHT TRAIN TOUR has sold out every show so far this year, including Aldean's Madison Square Garden debut in Feb. that sold out in seven minutes. Other stadium stops include Boston’s Fenway Park (7/12 and 7/13) and Chicago’s Wrigley Field (7/20).

Street Date: April 16th, 2013
Label: Almost Country Records
First Single: “Whiskey Baby”
Producer: Casey J. Donahew
The Casey Donahew Band’s latest CD release, STANDOFF is another collection of pure Texas country from one of the Lone Star state’s hardest-working artists. For over a decade Casey and the band have crossed the country and back, burning up every stage in their path with their unique brand of country, and with the release of their sixth CD, STANDOFF, they’re ready to put the hammer down and barrel full-speed ahead.
Just like their predecessors/fellow Texas acts the Eli Young Band and the Randy Rogers Band, who broke out and garnered mainstream attention and acclaim, the Casey Donahew Band is a band on the verge…they’ve captured the hearts of Texans and beyond for years, and soon the rest of the world will know what legions of loyal fans have known for years – Casey and his band are bonified stars.
STANDOFF, comes to fans as the follow-up to CDB’s wildly successful CD DOUBLE WIDE DREAM, which reached the Number Two spot on the iTunes Country chart and Number 10 on Billboard’s Country Albums Chart. That collection yielded three chart-topping smashes on the Texas regional music charts, including the scorching love letter to his home state, “One Star Flag,” and irreverent title track, a love song to the redneck way of life. He follows down that small-town rabbithole full of colorful characters once again on “Standoff” with songs like “Homecoming Queen,” a tune that visits the high school’s most popular girl 10 years later in her hot mess state as she copes with life on the other side of the tiara and gown, and “Put The Bottle Down,” a song that tackles the sheer devastation and despair of alcoholism head-on, with utmost honesty and the dangerous edginess of a sharp knife. And of course there are plenty of declarations of love peppered in there as well, in songs like the sweetly sentimental “Small Town Love,” and the debut single, “Whiskey Baby,” a tune comparing a man’s love for his woman to his favorite libation that he can’t seem to put down, alternately burning yet soothing and hard to swear off.
As a cowboy who still loves to rope on occasion, Casey’s love for all things Western comes out on the new CD as well, permeating the packaging with its creative, spaghetti-Western movie theme. The simulated bullet holes on the CD inside and the second amendment printed on the inside cover are a testament to who he is as well, and his stance on the issue currently being hotly debated is what spurred him in part to name the new CD, which hits stores April 16th. For Casey and his wife Melinda, who have singlehandedly created his impressive decade-long career, the renegade sentiment seemed to fit as well.
“We went through several ideas for a title and came up with ‘Standoff’ – it doesn’t relate to a specific song, but it relates to our ideas on the second amendment for sure,” said Casey.
We’re big supporters of the 2nd amendment and the right to bear arms, and culturally we thought that was a great concept idea, and it sums up a lot of how we’ve spent our career in the music business too. We’ve kind of done it on our own as outlaws outside the system in a way, since we didn’t follow the norm of ‘you’re supposed to do this, and you’re supposed to do that,’ and we didn’t do any of that we did it on totally our own, so we thought that was a great idea for a title. I’m very excited to take this new collection of songs out to the fans. It’s always fun to make new music, and I hope they enjoy it as much as I did writing and making it.”

Florida Georgia Line verkauft in einer Woche über 10.000 Singles mit „Cruise“ (Remix Hip-Hop-Star Nelly)
Veranstaltungstermine für diesen Sommer in ganz Westkanada
Das neue Gesangsduo Florida Georgia Line, erst kürzlich von der ACM (Academy of Country Music) als „New Artist oft the Year“ ausgezeichnet, haben gerade mehr als 10.000 Singles auf iTunes Canada verkauft mit ihrem neuen Remix „Cruise“ , den sie zusammen mit Grammy -Award Gewinner und Hip-Hop Star Nelly herausgegeben haben.
Mit der ersten Single aus dem höchst erfolgreichen Debüt-Album „Here Comes the Good Times“ (Republic Nashville/Universal Music Canada) stellt „Cruise“ die Sänger einer Unmenge von Fans vor und war das meistverkaufte Country-Music Debütalbum im Jahr 2012.

Die Zusammenarbeit mit Nelly war die Krönung eines äußerst erfolgreichen Jahres für das Duo. „Cruise“ (Platin-Verkauf) erreichte den Top-Ten Status nur 14 Wochen nach seiner Erstveröffentlichung – schneller als jedes Debüt-Album seit Brooks & Dunns „Brand New Man“ – und erreichte Platz 1 auf den kanadischen Country Charts zwei Wochen in Folge. Ihre zweite Single „Get Your Shine On“ hat die Top-Ten im Country Radio in Kanada reicht und wurde in den USA mehr als eine halbe Million mal verkauft (Gold-Verkauf)
Bestehend aus Brian Kelly aus Ormond Beach in Florida und Tyler Hubbard aus Monroe in Georgia, hat Florida Georgia Line die Aufmerksamkeit der bedeutendsten Countrymusic Stars auf sich gezogen, einschließlich von Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Dierks Bentley und Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles. Der dynamische Stil des Duos und ihre unvergesslichen Live-Shows haben ihnen im vergangenen Jahr die Türen geöffnet für zwei bedeutende und begehrte Veranstaltungstouren der Country Musik, Taylor Swift’s „Red Tour“ und Luke Bryan’s „Dirt Road Diaries Tour“.
Florida Georgia Line wird an ausgewählten Terminen diesen Sommer quer über Westkanada ihr neues Album zu Gehör bringen.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
THE BAND PERRY’S PIONEER DEBUTS IN THE TOP SPOT WITH NEARLY 130,000 COPIES SOLD IN THE FIRST WEEK
Sibling Trio Earns Billboard’s #1 Country Albums & #2 All Genre
Superstars Celebrate Release With ELLEN (4/11); DANCING WITH THE STARS (4/16) & Yahoo! RAM Country (4/24)
Nashville, TN (April 11, 2013) – Forging ahead into the unknown has proven successful for The Band Perry, whose sophomore album PIONEER (Republic Nashville) debuted in the top spot with nearly 130,000 copies sold in the first week. Upon release, the Superstar sibling trio catapulted on Billboard’s charts -- #1 Country Albums and #2 All Genre.
Produced by Dann Huff, PIONEER has received acclaim from top critics across the country, as well as late night host David Letterman, who called their recent performance on his show, “beautiful music.” The band signed 22,222 copies of the Target exclusive deluxe edition – featuring four additional songs – to signify their second album, the release date (4/2) and their two-week #1 with “Better Dig Two.”
“’Pioneer’ is an artistic tour de force that furthers the potential shown on group's award-winning 2010 debut.” Associated Press
“preserves their homegrown twang nicely, nixing the boring pop-crossover vibe that plagues so much mainstream country.” Entertainment Weekly
“…sibling trio’s shining sophomore disc.” Us Weekly (3 out of 4 stars)
“…shows that the path the trio blazed with its debut was no mere fluke.” The Oakland Press
“…well aware of both 1970s West Coast rock and the arena-folk foot stompers of Mumford & Sons.” The New York Times
“’Pioneer’ ups the commercial ante with a turbocharged country-pop and rock sound.” Chicago Tribune
“…the group has made what will likely be one of the signal country albums of 2013.” The Washington Post
"Strong songs, potent production." USA Today
Sparks are still flying after an explosive ACM Awards show performance that Country Weekly included in the Top 5 Musical Moments, saying, “the trio of Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry may already have had No. 1 hits and a lion’s share of radio play, but they had their coming-out party at the ACMs last night, bringing the house down…"
The family band will perform their latest chart-climbing hit, “DONE.,” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today (4/11) and will visit ABC’s Dancing With The Stars next Tuesday (4/16), showcasing their PLATINUM-certified, multi-week #1 lead single “Better Dig Two.” Check local listings for times and stations.
CBS Radio has featured The Band Perry in their IMPACT Campaign, which includes exclusive web interviews and a fully-produced interview package for CBS-TV affiliates as well as on-air artist profile spots. Check it out via http://us995.cbslocal.com/2013/03/30/impact-the-band-perry/. Yahoo! RAM Country will showcase special content with the trio across their platforms on 4/24.
ABOUT THE BAND PERRY: Siblings Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry quickly catapulted into the mainstream with the success of their Quadruple-Platinum, breakout hit “If I Die Young.” In 2011, the tune took the #1 position on both Country and AC charts as well as earned 2011 CMA Single AND Song of the Year. Their success continued with Platinum-certified “You Lie” and the Gold-certified, #1 smash “All Your Life.” The Band Perry has won multiple ACM, CMA and CMT Music Awards as well as GRAMMY, TEEN CHOICE, AMA, ACA and Billboard Music Award nominations.
