Strait Releases 40th Album on Longstanding Label Home MCA Nashville
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – George Strait releases Love Is Everything, his 40th album on MCA Nashville, today, Tuesday, May 14, available at all physical and digital retailers.  Love Is Everything features Strait’s current hit “Give It All We Got Tonight” written by Mark Bright, Tim James and Phil O’Donnell. The song is poised to be the country patriarch’s 60th career No. 1, an accomplishment no artist except the 60-year old Strait has come closing to achieving.
 
For Love Is Everything, Strait again joined forces with longtime friend and producer Tony Brown.  Providing a more personal feel, this album holds four songs written or co-written by Strait with son Bubba and legendary songwriter Dean Dillon.
 
“I’m not sure they’ll learn anything about me they don’t already know,” Strait says with a laugh when talking about the content of Love Is Everything.  “I’ve been doing this a long time and 40 is a lot of records!”  He continues, “It's always fun putting together songs for a new record. It can also be difficult at times. This one was both for sure, but worth every minute. I think it's my best release in a while. I hope people enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it.”
 
In addition, the album features songs penned by Al Anderson, Casey Beathard, L. Russell Brown, Roger Creager, Tom Douglas, Wyatt Earp, Keith Gattis, Monty Holmes, Kyle Jacobs, Donny Kees, Bill Kenner, Pat McLaughlin, Randy Montana, Jeff Silvey and Chris Stapleton.  
 
After over 30 years in the business, Strait still looks forward to going in the studio and enjoys it more than ever.  Many of the players on the album have worked on a number of Strait’s projects throughout of his career.
 
Strait kicked off 2013 in high gear for the first leg of his The Cowboy Rides Away Tour. Only the June 1 show in San Antonio’s Alamodome remains in the sold out tour.  Known as the “house they built for George,” the Alamodome sold out within an astounding six minutes of going on sale. Dates for the second leg of the tour will be announced later this year.

Interview with Donny Parenteau

Interview with Donny Parenteau



Lamitschka:  What is your latest CD and how's it doing?



Donny Parenteau: My latest album is Bring It On and it's doing very well. Since its release in Nov 2012 the CD has been placed into a time capsule at the Regina Saskatchewan Legislative Building to be opened in 100 years. This is the only CD placed in the capsule so it is a huge honour to me and my family name, Parenteau. This CD has also been nominated for a 2013 JUNO Award (Aboriginal Album of the Year) Bring It On has also been nominated at the Saskatchewan Country Music Awards for Album of the Year.



Lamitschka:  How did you choose the title for the CD?  Is there a story behind the name?



Donny Parenteau: The title came from one of the songs called "Bring It On" that I co-wrote with Brad Johner. This was a good name for the CD as this is where I am at right now musically in my life. I'm ready for anything...Bring It On.

Lamitschka:  Do you write the songs yourself? If not, how do you go about finding the songs for your CD?



Donny Parenteau: I write my own songs and co-write with people for all my CD's and also use other peoples' works. When making a new CD I would try to write the entire project and only when you feel some of the songs are not fitting the path of this particular CD you source for songs. You can use publishing companies like Ole for this.

Lamitschka:  Please tell us about the songs on your album (influences, etc).



Donny Parenteau: The songs on this CD were selected by me and my co-producer Bart McKay to fit were I am at today musically. There are 7 out of 11 that were penned by myself and with co-writers who were all Canadian. The song "Honey It's Broke" was penned by Thomas Wade and I and it talks about the saying 'if it ain't broke don't fix it,' which we relate to a relationship. "Sun Shower" I co wrote with Terry Ferinhough and it is a feel good song about being in a good relationship. "Bring It On" I co wrote with Brad Johner and it talks about a friendship that developed at a young age and how they went thru life with the take the bull by the horns attitude. "Deep In The Heart of Saskatchewan" was one I wrote by myself and it explains how I feel about my home province and this song was the reason my CD ended up in the time capsule. "Yes Ma'am" is a song I wrote and it a humorous tune about a guy going through life realizing "If Mama ain't happy No ones happy." "Don't Forget To Fish" is a song I co-wrote with Darlene Tuleta and the title and story comes from what an Elder once said to me. The Elder asked me how busy I had been and I said we were touring and so on and then he mentioned to me don't forget to fish which I responded I don't fish and he said that's not what I mean. It turns out it's just another way of saying don't forget to smell the roses. 



"You" is a song co-written with Troy Kokal and the song was one of the fastest I have ever wrote. The song was also written over Skype as I was in Prince Albert, SK and Troy was in Calgary, AB. This song is a pure love song about saying to the love of your life how you feel about them and how they make you feel. The next 4 songs off the CD were sourced out where we found the songs "Can't Afford to Love You" and "The Last Thing You Do" which are great songs I wish I wrote but sang them as if I did. The final two songs were duets I did with a couple of special friends. "It Will Be Alright With Me" was penned by Jeff Neil and Jimmy Barnes and the song was never meant to be a duet. I met Jully Black while performing July 1st 2012 Canada Day Live on Parliament Hill and we hit if off real quick. Jully had asked me if she could record something with me and I went to my guitar case and the only lyrics I had in there was the song "It Will Be Alright With Me." I reviewed it as I sat next to her and it came to life that this could be a duet. The next month Jully was on a plane singing it with me in the studio in Saskatoon, SK. "Snow White" is a special song to me originally done by the Canadian Rock group Streetheart that I grew up listening to. I met Kenny Shields during Telemiracle in 2011 and we became instant friends. When I was picking songs I had mentioned to Kenny that I would like to re cut Snow White and he said sure which I followed up with this request " One condition, you sing it with me." Kenny was on the next flight out of Winnipeg to Saskatoon to the studio. What a treat that was...

Lamitschka:  What is the difference between your last CD and your current one?



Donny Parenteau: Everything I do as a vocalist to playing the fiddle on this CD was challenged to take it all to another level.



Lamitschka:  Your current single is being played by radio. What do you feel is special about this song that makes people want to hear it?
Donny Parenteau: The song is called "Sun Shower" and I think the feel and message of the songs is what people enjoy hearing. Also, with the winter we all just thought that anything with SUN in a title works. 

Lamitschka:  What will your next single be?
Donny Parenteau: Working on that now and it is narrowed down to 2 choices--"The Last Thing You Do" or "You."

Lamitschka:  What kind of songs do you like to record the most?
 Donny Parenteau: Great message with a good feel that everyone can relate too.

Lamitschka:  You did a duet with Kenny Shields and Jully Black. How did that happen to come about?



Donny Parenteau: I met Kenny four years ago during Telemiracle while Streetheart was part of the National Cast. Kenny and I hit it off so well and became fast friends. I asked him if I could re-cut the song "Snow White" but with one condition ( he sang on the CD with me) and it worked. With Jully Black I met her while performing Canada Day Live on Parliament Hill 2012. Jully had asked if she could record a song with me and it just so happened that I had one song with the lyrics in my guitar case that afternoon called "It Will Be Alright With Me." I never heard this as a duet as it was not wrote that way by the writers Jeff Neil and James Barnes. We found out real soon that it could be a duet and Jully came out to Saskatoon to record it with me.

Lamitschka:  What is your favorite song among all the songs you have recorded and what's the story behind it?
Donny Parenteau: There are so many but the one that comes to mind is "Chances Are" that I wrote for my daughter Julianna before she was born. I wanted to write this for her to remember how special Daddy and Mommy thought she was coming into this world. This by the way is not Julianna's favorite of Daddy's songs. 

CHRIS YOUNG DEBUTS "AW NAW"

CHRIS YOUNG DEBUTS "AW NAW" TO RADIO TODAY

For a guy whose focus and passion since grade school has been country music, there's nothing better than writing, recording and releasing new music. With "Aw Naw," the first single from his upcoming fourth album, Chris Young is ready to go. "I've been working on the new music for a while now, so I'm really excited to finally get it out there to radio and the fans!”
Written by Young, Ashley Gorley and Chris DeStefano, "Aw Naw" hits country radio today with a lot of early praise. Taste of Country says "This country-rocker is a progressive, creative and well-written leap forward for the ultra-talented singer. The challenge with each new album (especially one following the success of a project like ‘Neon’) is to show growth without sacrificing loyal fans. ‘Aw Naw’ leaves one very excited that Young may have done just that with the new project."
MusicRow Magazine says "This man is one helluva hoss of a country singer" and All Access declares, "If you're looking for a tune that amps up the energy, you have found it." "A phrase that Country Music fans will be saying for the summer of 2013; like 'Aw Naw, I got another speeding ticket,' or 'Aw Naw, I shouldn't have texted my ex after a few drinks last night,'" said roughstock.com.
With 5 #1 singles, 3 acclaimed albums and Grammy, CMA, ACM and CMT nominations to his credit, the 27 year-old Murfreesboro, Tennessee native is lighting up audiences and giving a sneak peak at new music, including his newest single "Aw Naw," on Brad Paisley's Beat This Summer tour through August.
