NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Thursday, June 6, 2013 – Country music superstar Ronnie Dunn surprised fans in downtown Nashville for CMA Music Festival activities last night when he performed four songs on the rooftop patio of Rippy’s Bar and Grill on lower Broadway. The performance happened as fans were departing the Bridgestone Arena after watching the CMT Awards. Dunn debuted four new songs:  “Country This,” “Kiss You There,” “Cowgirls Rock ‘N’ Roll” and “Peace, Love and Country Music.”  During “Kiss You There,” a flash mob took over Broadway for an impromptu dance to the delight of the crowd.  Both “Country This” and “Kiss You There” can be downloaded exclusively on iTunes. To view the performance and flashmob, click here.
 
As Dunn told USA Today, "I'm more excited about where music is today than I ever have been. We no longer have to play by rules because there are no rules. The band and crew snuck in and set-up to ambush the unsuspecting crowd coming out of the CMT Awards.  We don't have a clue what we’re doing, but we're having fun and working overtime to come up with unorthodox ways to get music to people who simply like music. I hope that those of you who rambled into the line of fire had a good time!”
 
In addition to the performance, screens covered the buildings between Fourth and Fifth Avenues broadcasting the performance with #countrythis and #kissyouthere covering the buildings and the roof of the historic Ryman Auditorium. 
 
Inside Rippy’s bar, Dunn gave away over 1,000 hangover patches for indulgent CMA Music Festival attendees.

FAN CLUB PARTIES - AT THE HEART OF CMA FEST

FAN CLUB PARTIES - AT THE HEART OF CMA FEST


When the CMA Fest was appropriately called “Fanfair” at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds, it was all about the music, autograph booths, long lines and fan club parties.  Today, in its 42nd year, it has expanded into numerous concerts with over a hundred artists on more than a dozen stages welcoming over 70,000 in attendance each day, as well as a hundred signing booths in the new Music City Center.  The fan club parties still bring the artists and fans together for those precious moments, autographs and photos that they will take home, share and keep forever. It’s also nice to discover that the parties are just as important to the artists, if not moreso. 

Memories of parties years ago soon come to mind as the anticipation builds to see what our favorite artists will have in store for us each year.  It’s hard to forget LeAnn Rimes’ first fan club party - an eight-hour bowling bash with a young Brad Paisley as a back-up guitarist and the amazing Clark Family Experience entertaining as well.  Billy Ray Cyrus (with a two-year old Miley) at the Coliseum, Pam Tillis, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Martina McBride and dozens of artists held similar events and Shania Twain hosted her one-and-only party with fans who took photos with the photogenic country queen.  Just like today, the need to be one-on-one with his fans was evident in Keith Urban’s first fan club party as he spent caring time with each one.  Proud to be his fifth fan club member, it is now surreal to see where this phenomenal Aussie is today.  

Lonestar celebrated their fifteenth party with many loyal fans, shared lunch, souvenir posters and a stunning performance of familiar and new songs from their latest release, “Life As We Know It”. Carrie Underwood combined her party with a Number One award event, a private concert and the grand opening of her “Blown Away” tour exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame.  The Band Perry made “The Fans Perry” the stars with creative souvenirs, music and quality time.  Bo Bice always looks forward to celebrating with his “Bo Peeps”, Jo Dee Messina has her fan club picnic and Scotty McCreery brings along his favorite fried chicken to share before his concert and meet and greet.  

The ultimate “fan” of fan club parties themselves would be Chris Young, who had been looking forward to sharing with his fans since his win on Nashville Star in 2006, where he remained at the stage after his winning performance to meet with each fan long after the staff was gone. This year, he not only held the traditional party, but he also had a chalking party, a Chris Young race, a special party to meet his parents and grandparents and he sent out a prize patrol, street team and flash mobs are all over town.  These were in addition to meet and greets at the Fanfair booths and appearances.  

For many years, Marty Stuart roughed it at a quaint barn at Smiley Hollow with a mix of 100 degree temperatures, country food, country music, a meet and greet and a “party“ in every sense of the word.  Today, his Marty Party has grown into the 12th Late Night Jam at the Ryman Auditorium where he has been joined by everyone from Porter Wagoner to Keith Urban.  This year he welcomed his Fabulous Superlatives, Connie Smith, the Oak Ridge Boys, Jamey Johnson, John Carter Cash and the Mavericks before he met with each and every fan until after 3:00 a.m.. Yes, it’s all about the music AND the fans, and that’s you.

SPECIAL SHOW FOR PIONEER

IOWA'S MUSEUM WEEK FEATURES SPECIAL SHOW FOR PIONEER MUSIC MUSEUM IN ANITA, IOWA
 
     Anita, Iowa.....Iowa's Governor Brandstad has declared June 10-15 as "Museum Week."  In the small rural Iowa village of Anita is where the Pioneer Music Museum is located.  A brainchild of Smithsonian Institution recording artist Bob Everhart, it's a one-of-a-kind kind of museum.  According to Everhart "The Pioneer Music Museum is definitely one-of-a-kind.  We started collecting old-time country, bluegrass, and folk music memorabilia fifty some years ago.  Add to that the contributions of country-folk-bluegrass superstars who have been inducted into America's Old Time Country Music Hall of Fame, as well as National old-time fiddlers (there are over 100 fiddles on display) since 1976, all on show in the museum, and you can begin to see the bigger picture.  So big that American Profile Magazine (distribution over 5-million copies nationwide) came to Anita, Iowa, where the museum is located, to do a Hometown Heroes story about it. In it they talk about the museum and the National Traditional Country Music Association which I formed in 1976, to preserve the music of the nation's frontiersmen and dirt farmers, cowboys and coal miners.  These were hill folk and sons of the soil and their music shouldn't be relegated to the coal bins.  This is part of our heritage.  America's heritage.'  They went on to say that Sheila (my wife) and Bobbie Lhea (our daughter) are as unpretentious as the music we perform and record for the Smithsonian Institution. The article goes on to say, 'The Pioneer Music Museum is filled with artifacts such as Patsy Montana's old Fender guitar (which was stolen last year as well as Johnny Cash's harmonicas, Tommy Cash's guitar, Tom Swatzell's Dobro, and Maria Petersen's Bavarian zither.  Why?  We don't know, and we've never been able to recover those precious items.)   However the museum is still the proud survivor of well over 2,500 musical instruments as well as the suit Bill Monroe wore on his very last performance on the Grand Ole Opry before he passed away.  It's the same with Patti Page.  We inducted her into the Hall of Fame in 2010, and she passed away in 2011.  We have several of her LP's autographed by her, as well as some of her early performance clothing.  The museum is just loaded with things like that: The early Jimmie Rodger's guitar; rare photos of the Everly Brothers when they performed in Shenandoah; a rare one of a kind hammer dulcimer made from the mop boards of a Pennsylvania farm house that traveled west in a covered wagon; a massive amount of Johnny Cash's recordings, Bradley Kincaid's 'Hound-Dog' guitar; a guitar once belonging to Woody Guthrie; Rhonda Vincent's childhood mandolin as well as her dad's early banjo; Roy Acuff's jacket that he wore on the Grand Ole Opry; a guitar that Hank Williams once played; and guitars that once belonged to Jimmy Martin, Marvin Rainwater, Tommy Overstreet, Charlie Louvin, George Hamilton IV, Jimmy C. Newman, Bill Anderson, Claude Gray, and hundreds of others. We even have the original Gold Record Award from the RIAA that was given to Freddie Hart for his million-selling song "Easy Lovin"  There's way to many items to go into detail, needless to say, it's one of the most under-rated museums in Iowa."
     "Just across the street from the museum, in Anita," Sheila Everhart said, "is the Oak Tree Performance Center.  It's here that we are going to do a very special program of old-time music dedicated to the Pioneer Music Museum and Museum Week, just like Governor Brandstad wants us to."
     "We're going to do a very special show, June 14th at the Oak Tree Opry in Anita, of million-selling songs by our regular performers on the Opry; Marge Lund a lovely yodeler and singer of classic country songs; David Green who specializes in old-time gospel music and mountain songs; Francis Hahn a retired CIA agent who writes songs for Johnny Cash's music publishing House of Cash; Rick & Harriette Andersen who are backing musicians, and Bob and I will do some of our Smithsonian songs," Sheila added.  "We are also very fortunate to have Capitol Records recording artist Red Johnson with us. He began his music career with an old friend Dave Dudley who went on to record the smash hit "Six Days On The Road."  Red Johnson and Dave Dudley sat down and co-wrote "Taxi-Cab Driver" for Dudley. Red also wrote for Rex Allen ("The Voice") and Hank Thompson among many others as a staff writer for Tree Publishing, now Sony Publishing, in Nashville."
     "Red's biggest hit," Bob added, "was 'There's A Grand Ole Opry Show Playing Somewhere' which was originally written for Patsy Cline, Cowboy Copas, and Johnny Horton.  He will be performing it at this special "Museum Week" show, and you will most likely hear it being played by Dale Eichor on KWMT Radio in Fort Dodge, Iowa."
     "Red is a member of America's Old Time Country Music Hall of Fame, located in the Pioneer Music Museum," Sheila went on to say, "which is a pretty good reason for having him perform for us June 14th at 7pm at the Oak Tree Opry in Anita.  This is a small theater and it often fills up, so we recommend reserved seats, especially if traveling any distance, for $10 at 712-762-4363.  Overnight accommodations are available at the Anita Grand Motel.  You can find out more information about this special show, and the Pioneer Music Museum at our website at http://www.ntcma.net/."
