Nashville, TN (May 28, 2013) -Popular Texas group LANTANA will be in Nashville during CMA Music Festival week to record their upcoming CD with producer Johnny Garcia (Collin Raye, Mindy McCready, Sherrie Austin). They'll break from the studio just long enough for a 60-minute acoustic performance from noon - 1 p.m. CDT on Saturday, June 9 at Big Shotz (115 Second Avenue North).

Formed as a trio in 2006 and known for their intricate harmonies, LANTANA now features just two vocalists: Texan native Biz Haddock and Canadian musician Dalene Richelle.  Joined together, the two friends create an intriguing musical mix that engages audiences wherever they perform.

LANTANA has entertained fans at some of the largest and most prestigious venues in the U.S., including the Houston Astrodome, Louisiana Superdome, Texas Stadium, State Fair of Texas (2006, 2009-2012), and CMA Music Festival events (2009).

"We love small, intimate venues as well and are really looking forward to our set with Johnny at Big Shotz," notes Haddock.

LANTANA's debut CD release, UNBRIDLED, was named one of the Top 10 CDs of the Year (2006) by the Dallas Morning News.  The disc also earned them two Top 10 hits ("Country As A City Girl Can Be" and "Texas") on the Texas Music Chart, a feat superseded by only one other female group prior to LANTANA -- The Dixie Chicks.  

Carrie Underwood Rocks The Rolling Stones

Carrie Underwood Rocks On Stage With The Rolling Stones


After wrapping her 110-city “Blown Away Tour” in Abbottsford, BC on Thursday night, Carrie Underwood made an eager detour before heading home to Nashville. Saturday night Carrie had an opportunity of a lifetime when she was asked to join the Rolling Stones on stage in Toronto as a surprise guest performing "It's Only Rock 'N Roll (But I Like It)."
After the performance Carrie tweeted, “I just sang with the @RollingStones! Holy cow! I walked off stage and said, 'What just happened?!' Still can't believe it! :)"

CARRIE UNDERWOOD TOUR WITH ONE MILLION FANS

CARRIE UNDERWOOD BLOWS AWAY FANS ACROSS THREE CONTINENTS AND SIX COUNTRIES AS HER “BLOWN AWAY TOUR” WRAPS WITH ONE MILLION FANS ATTENDING

All 2013 SHOWS SOLD OUT
Six-time Grammy winner Carrie Underwood wrapped her international “Blown Away Tour” last week having performed 112 shows in 110 cities before one million fans across three continents and six countries since its launch last spring. Carrie’s headline arena tour played throughout the United States as well as Canada, Ireland, England, Northern Ireland and Australia, boasting mostly sell-outs in 2012 and all sell-outs during the 2013 leg.
Concert review critics praised Carrie throughout the tour’s run. “Thousands of fans on their feet throughout the opening number, singing along with every word, clapping their hands to the beat; that’s what it looks like when a bona fide star in the prime of her career comes through town,” said the Yakima Herald. The Hamilton Spectator shared, “the highlight of the show was the vocal display she put on for the show’s finale, ‘Blown Away.’” “Underwood gave a passionate nearly hour-and-forty minute performance, which kept the sold-out crowd enchanted throughout the evening,” stated the Lansing State Journal and the Charleston Gazette claimed, “her powerhouse vocals, shining stage presence, ostentatious and ever-changing wardrobe and extravagant concert accoutrement kept the audience’s attention for the duration of her set, which featured a solid mix of fan favorites both old and new.”
Interesting by the numbers details on Carrie’s “Blown Away Tour” include bringing 9 buses and 16 trucks with 89 tour personnel to each city, including support acts, who traveled over 605,000 total miles through the life of the tour. Her state-of-the-art stage production included 575,424 individual LED lights in 3,000 square feet of video walls,23,063 feet of lighting cable (which is 4.36 miles!) with 172 different colors used in the show’s lighting. Carrie and her band flew 150 feet above the audience at every show at a speed of .3 feet per second on a B-stage that weighed 5,890 pounds. To create the “Blown Away” tornado at each concert, 450 CO2 tanks and 222 Nitrogen tanks were used. Over 2,600 pounds of confetti were diffused into the air and 408 beach balls were blown up to toss to the fans. Backstage, tour personnel consumed 22,636 bottles of vitaminwater® and smartwater®.
Carrie’s two previous headline tours, 2008’s “Carnival Ride Tour” and 2010’s “Play On Tour,” performed for a combined total of nearly 250 shows with 2.2 million fans in attendance. She wrapped 2008, 2010, and 2012 as the top female country touring artist.
Charitable contributions from tour proceeds were made to the American Red Cross and Canadian Red Cross, as well as local charities in Atlantic City, New Jersey and Des Moines, Iowa.
The North American dates were presented and hydrated by vitaminwater®.
Since releasing her debut album in 2005, Carrie has sold over 15 million albums and placed 17 No. 1 singles on the charts. Her recent album, Blown Away, made history by debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart, making Carrie only the second country artist in the 47-year history of the chart to have each of their first four albums debut at No. 1. The now platinum-selling Blown Away album also debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, making Carrie only the second country artist in history to have three consecutive albums debut at No. 1. She is a six-time Grammy winner, a two-time Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year, a three-time Country Music Association and ACM Female Vocalist winner, and a proud member of the Grand Ole Opry.

Kenny Chesney Country’s Hottest Guy

Kenny Chesney Graces PEOPLE Country’s June Cover

On Heels of Wall Street Journal Front, Named “Country’s Hottest Guy”
As Memorial Day Weekend kicked off, the Wall Street Journal proclaimed Kenny Chesney “The King of the Road” for his unprecedented ticket sales over the past decade. Now as everyone returns to work, PEOPLE Country names Chesney “Country’s Hottest Guy” on their upcoming cover, which hits newsstands May 31.
Shot on location in Amelia Island, Georgia, where Chesney was rehearsing for his No Shoes Nation Tour, which will play 19 stadiums over the course of the summer, the hardest working, hardest playing singer/songwriter spent the morning on the beach and on his boat with acclaimed photographer Andrew Southam.
“The folks at PEOPLE have always been so great about understanding the way I work,” Chesney says of the shoot. “They came. They waited. They found a beach we could get to… And somehow they managed to make it look like a guy who was moving from one rehearsal to another, then back to the first and shooting a tv special was almost relaxed.”
Not just relaxed, but the man who’s also done time on PEOPLE’s Sexiest Men list was also country music’s hottest guy. As PEOPLE Country Editor Cindy Sanz says of the decision, “Kenny Chesney has always been hot: he's passionate and fun, and he knows how to cut loose! But what's really appealing is when he gives you a glimpse of the sensitive soul underneath -- and that’s why he’s PEOPLE Country’s 2013 Hottest Guy.”
The man in the magazine’s profile – who recently released his introspective Life On A Rock -- is looking at life through a much different prism. LOAR, which marked his 7th Billboard all-genre Top 200 Albums #1 debut, reflects that, too.
“I think you come to places in your life where you realize how precious the moments you don’t notice are,” Chesney says. “Most of Life On A Rock was written for my friends and me -- to remember those little moments we’d shared. It wasn’t ever meant to be part of ‘the career,’ but those songs stayed with me. And the more I thought about my life, the more I realized that’s the part of my life that’s so much like the way people who live these songs live, too. Suddenly what was just mine, like having friends at a time in your life that defines you, seemed like something that was important to other people, too.”
Life On A Rock has been picking up some strong reviews. The Chicago Tribune wrote “the country superstar turns down the volume to offer a quieter and more contemplative meditation on sand and sea,” while The Washington Post opined, “It's a bold move, considering that a new crop of country rockers are selling millions of albums modeled on Chesney's pounding arena rock sound. But, Chesney follows his muse and offers up an album that exposes his weathered soul. The result is as appealing as it is surprising…”
The No Shoes Nation, meanwhile, is heading west. Chesney brings his full-tilt live show to Seattle’s Century Link Field on Saturday, as well as plays Boise on Thursday. With pirate flags aloft, it will be a wild weekend in the home of the Seattle Seahawks no doubt.

BOURBON IN KENTUCKY FOR DIERKS BENTLEY

Dierks Bentley - Bourbon In Kentucky
 
DIERKS BENTLEY RELEASES POWERFUL LEAD SINGLE
“BOURBON IN KENTUCKY,” FROM NEW ALBUM RISER

Behind-the-Scenes Video From The Studio Available
Exclusively On Rollingstone.com Now

 
Nashville, TN – May 28, 2013 – Award-winning singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley will give fans the first taste of his next album with the release of its lead single, “Bourbon In Kentucky,” to radio stations today with an official add date of June 10.

“Bourbon In Kentucky” explores the dark internal emotions of loss and disconnection told through an intense vocal performance by Bentley and haunting backing vocalsfrom Kacey Musgraves.  The singers’ emotions are matched sonically with scraping guitar tones and a rhythm section based in tension and mystery. It’s a gripping account of separation and the dramatic steps many take to kill the pain that accompanies it.

“I’ve never heard anything like ‘Bourbon’ before,” Bentley says. “I really love the angst of it. I’ve been there before where you can’t drink your way through a heartache or a broken heart. There’s such an aggressive lonesomeness in this song.”

For a behind-the-scenes look into the studio for the recording of “Bourbon in Kentucky,” visit RollingStone.com by clicking here.

“Bourbon In Kentucky” is the first sample from Bentley’s seventh studio album, RISER, due this fall.  The new album was written and recorded in the aftermath of his father’s death in June 2012 and finds Bentley fiercely exhibiting determined resilience. Framed against that backdrop, “Bourbon” rings with an understandable intensity, though it represents just one facet of RISER’s creative arc.

“I don’t want anyone to have any preconceived notions of what the rest of the album’s going to sound like,” Bentley says. “I’d just like this first song out there to kind of shatter any expectations.”

Since moving to Nashville, Bentley has forged his own artistic path in an industry built predominantly on formula. He has mixed elements of modern country, classic country, bluegrass and rock, maintaining an unmistakable identity while constantly reinventing his sound. His album Home debuted at No. 1 and spawned three consecutive chart-topping hits, marking 10 career No. 1 songs for Bentley as a singer and songwriter. His five previous studio albums have sold more than five million copies, garnered 11 GRAMMY nominations and earned him an invitation to join the Grand Ole Opry. Bentley is currently out on the road playing sold out arenas and amphitheaters on the Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley: Locked & Reloaded Tour through October.

NEW ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Angie Johnson


NEW ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Angie Johnson
By Bob Doerschuk
© 2013 CMA Close Up® News Service / Country Music Association®, Inc.
Apparently, it’s not enough for Missouri-born Angie Johnson to have served as an intelligence analyst in the United States Air Force; she also sang and toured with The Air Force Band. Then, following an initial attempt to find a break in Nashville, she studied psychology at Columbia State Community College in Franklin, Tenn., to help children and veterans struggling with PTSD.
When a soldier posted his video of Staff Sgt. Johnson performing Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” for troops in a spirited acoustic performance on YouTube, it eventually drew more than 3 million views. Millions more watched her during Season 2 of “The Voice.”
That’s only the beginning. On May 21, Sony Music Nashville released her debut EP, Sing for You, produced by Josh Leo. On these four tracks, she doesn’t just sing the lyrics – she inhabits them. On "Grandpa’s Farm” (written by Brent Cobb, Adam Hood and Jason Saenz), a slide guitar shimmers like heat from a sun-baked field as Johnson evokes a lazy day, which transforms on the bridge, as the drums drop out, into a whispered promise, as if behind Grandpa’s back, to turn up the temperature in a different way.
In dramatic contrast, the deep feeling of the title track (Johnson, Catt Gravitt and Leo) chills the listener. Here, Johnson offers a different gift, a soft and soothing song, to a young man bloodied and broken most likely in battle. Never mind her impressive technique; Johnson has a gift for bringing beauty to a story, even one of unfathomable sadness.
IN HER OWN WORDS
DREAM DUET PARTNER
“Garth Brooks or Keith Urban. I have harmonized with both of them repeatedly via the CD player in my car, and I can already tell you that we sound fabulous together!”
MUSICAL HERO
“I can't name just one. The people who inspired me early on and made me really want to pursue a career in music were Patsy Cline, Elvis Presley, Reba McEntire and Wynonna Judd, in that order.”
FAVORITE FOOD ON THE ROAD
“First, carbs. Next, carbs. And then probably carbs. Did I mention carbs?”

CD: TERRY KRUGER - Mountain Bluebird

It's not often we get the extreme opportunity to hear  Appalachian mountain music played really really well, but here it is in the frailing hands and fingers of Terry Kruger, a Canadian no less.  I've always been a fan of frailing banjo, mostly because of its nice gallop across the strings and music that creates a happy feeling.  On this CD, Terry Kruger not only gallops, he allow his fellow musicians to join him on a remarkable experience of playing old-time really well.  The bass actually dances.  I don't mean it's flying all over the place, it sets the beat, the rhythm, the delightful back and forth lay that acoustic bass sounds so good at. Dirk Powell is this prolific bass player that sounds like glue to Terry's banjo, no matter what he's playing. He also adds guitar and mandolin in the overdub.  On the fiddle, appropriately taking second chair to the banjo is Kevin Wimmer who also knows exactly how that mountain sound developed and therefore is able to reinvent it backing Terry.  These guys have been around awhile, and they, like all dedicated musicians, have had their ups and downs, but you can be sure of one thing they know how to make happy music.  It's an all instrumental CD, equally good to actually sit down and listen to, or in the background for simple pleasure. These exotic musicians went to exotic New Orleans to 'create' this masterpiece of old-time instrumental music.  Dirk Powell producing, engineering, mixing, and mastering at the Cypress House in Breaux Bridge.  Wow there's a couple of delicious Cajun food restaurants in Breaux Bridge.  Dirk works for Sugar Hill if the name sounds familiar, and his expertise in the final product is astonishingly authentic mountain style music.  So rare these days in a phobia of non-music sound-alike insults to the creative process. These guys don't have to 'push' to get this delightful sound, they are naturals especially together in more ways than one. This is creativity alive and well, and certainly unaltered by modern standards. This CD goes immediately to the Rural Roots Music Commission for their perusal.  I see 'old-time' all over this project, an authentic one we rarely get. Five stars from me Terry.

CD: BOBBY AWE - Keepin' It Country


BOBBY AWE
Keepin' It Country
If My Heart Had Windows - Wild Side Of Life - Til I'm Too Old To Die Young - Chisled in Stone - Long Black Veil - There Goes My Everything - Squaws Along The Yukon - These Arms Of Mine - Streets Of Baltimore - Devil Woman - I Can't Be Myself - The Garden - Have I Told You Lately That I Love You - Don't Worry - Swinging Doors - The Blackboard Of My Heart - City Lights - Don't Be Angry
 
With the death of George Jones there's lots of music memorials happening in country music today, but certainly not in the so-called world of popular-country music which has little, if any, connects to classic and traditional country music.  So-called country music today is a pathetic imitation of the 'real-deal.'  It's a kind of non-music sound-alike insult to the real country music creative process.  Our best representative of that very real distinguished and memorable music is still safe in the hands and voice of Bobby Awe, one of our most prestigious country singers in Iowa.  He has stayed with traditional and classic country music throughout his bountiful music career, and this opening song is obviously a dedication to someone he cared a lot for and about, George Jones.  This is not 'just' a George Jones re-cap CD.  This is one of Bobby Awe's best 'new' CD's he's done in a long time.  Included is no less than three of Hank Thompson's songs that our dear friend Lucy Jackson used to play keyboards for. This CD is a remarkable collection of great songs, from the folk library of Pete Seeger "Garden Song" to a really old folk song "Long Black Veil."  We heard Bobby do that song 'live' during his concert at the Oak Tree Opry, and it thrilled the audience.  Here it is recorded by our very best country voice in Iowa.  Add to all of this two Merle Haggard songs.  Kenny Serrat is going to be at our festival in LeMars, Iowa, this year, the man who apparently showed Haggard how to sing.  We are going to do our very best to bring Bobby Awe and Kenny Serrat together at that time for a special show featuring two incredibly gifted voices.  Some of my favorite country songs are on this CD.  "City Lights" written by one of our Hall of Famers, Bill Anderson, and made a hit by both Ray Price and Mickey Gilley.  Bobby Awe does it in grand style. Another great song is "There Goes My Everything" by Jack Greene another of our Hall of Famers.  Interesting to note that Elvis also saw the power in this song and did his own version of it.  One more that immediately caught my attention was "Streets of Baltimore," written by Nebraskan Tompall Glaser.  The Glaser Brothers had a huge hit with it, but Bobby Bare was the first one to record it.  All in all this CD is a wonderful 'remembrance' not just to George Jones, but to some incredibly beautiful and well-done classic and traditional country music.  I say good going Bobby Awe, keep it up, and let more and more CD's come heading our way.

Annie and Terri Avery are a mother-in-law and a daughter-in-law, and over the years they have together managed to do some remarkable musical things in Iowa.  Annie is the mover and shaker behind the 'jam sessions' held in Dows, Iowa, with the help of Terri of course, and that project has become very popular, not just with learning musicians but with the audience as well. Both of these talented ladies help us at our annual festival in LeMars, especially in the roll of hosting workshops for those just beginning, to judging contests, to hosting jam sessions all over the grounds.  This CD is kind of what you see is what you get, errrrr that should say what you hear is what you get.  It's not a pretense, it's just Annie and Terri on their respective acoustic guitars, singing and playing songs they like.  It could be a back porch experience, or something happening in the local park bandstand.  But don't sell these artists short.  They just returned from Hawaii where they did some pickin' and grinnin' and not just there, they also performed at Yellowstone Park.  They are also among the first to 'help-out' in time of need.  When we needed help raising money to fix the roof of the Pioneer Music Museum, guess who was first in line?  This list of songs is pretty much what our older rural Iowan's want to hear, and Annie and Terri do a great job putting music right where they want it.  Their harmony is what really sells them, and what their fans want to hear.  For guitar they are both pretty much playing rhythm so don't expect any fancy leads, none there...BUT, this is a back porch session.  Don't know who's playing the bass, but it's good.  It's a great 'sing-along' CD for anyone to have on their back porch so they could, of course....sing along. Neither artist has pursued 'greatness' or 'fame' in their pursuit of good old-time country music.  For them it's a very nice 'sharing' experience. This CD sounds just like they sound 'live' so you know it's fun to listen to.  I say keep it up, you're two of our best down-home performing artists in country music in Iowa.

Wow, great country and western music is back.  Mary and Molly are respectively mom and daughter from western Nebraska where the prairie still rolls and the western lifestyle is still a very real experience.  Belgrade, where they live nearby, is a very small village.  It's still a 'real' village, still 'real' western, still 'real' music.  Mary sings most of the leads with Molly providing that just right family harmony to make the song theirs.  It's a mutual admiration society of two people that know exactly where they are going with their voices.  I'm especially impressed by the backing musicians that gathered in Wisner, Nebraska, to produce this album.  Curt Shoemaker is the genius not just behind the steel guitar, but also as a co-producer making sure the sounds they create together is the best they can get, and it is obviously apparent that this is exactly what happened in this exciting studio session.  Bass is always important to me, and Mitch Benson made this an incredible listening experience as well as a danceable project.  It's really Curt's steel that 'shines' throughout the entire process, along with Billy Baxter who provided that just-right electric guitar sound that made country and western music so much fun to dance to, as well as listen to in the past, and here it is again, alive and well.  Fiddle is also so very important, and so lamentably missing in today's country music.  Marvin Bredemeier did the honors on this mandatory instrument so important to country music.  Marvin was just with us at the Oak Tree Opry a few weeks back, and his ability on country & western fiddle is monumental.  He has worked with the greats, including being Hank Thompson's regular fiddler, so it's with some degree of pride and pleasure we hear him alongside Curt Shoemaker on steel making this project a definite number-one presentation of great country and western music. This CD will definitely go to the Rural Roots Music Commission.  If however they choose Mary and Molly for "Traditional Country & Western" we might hold off the ceremony and honor until we do our Fremont Festival so all who want to participate can. That includes the rest of these great musicians, Ed Woodham on drums, Linn Baxter on keyboard, and Dan Kane on rhythm guitar, all of them exceptional.
