COUNTRY MUSIC'S BIGGEST PARTY - THE MORE (CONCERTS), THE MERRIER"

COUNTRY MUSIC'S BIGGEST PARTY - THE MORE (CONCERTS), THE MERRIER" 
by S. Parks

Ever since Paul McCartney played here in 1975, concerts have been the centerpiece of the CMA Fest.  Every honky tonk in Music City hosted an artist of a notoriety to match the size of the venue, artists who will one day move up to the main stages after an incredible amount of dues paying.

Larger concerts were held at the Wildhorse Saloon with Darius Rucker and Luke Bryan while Rodney Atkins thrilled the crowd on an outdoor stage.  The line was long for the Wynonna and Lonestar show at 3rd and Lindsley and the 9th Annual Stars for Second Harvest Benefit Concert rocked the Ryman Auditorium with hit songwriter Craig Wiseman who welcomed Florida Georgia Line with Nelly, Ronnie Dunn and the remarkable singer/songwriter Sarah Buxton who stole the show with “Stupid Boy“, her composition for Keith Urban.  A few blocks away, artists by the dozen, including Steel Magnolia and Bo Bice, played the main stage at the Hard Rock Café during the week long celebration. 

The celebration concert for the issuance of the Johnny Cash postage stamp was a treat for early risers with a morning show at the Ryman Auditorium, the mother church of country music.  It starred Mel Tillis, Marty Stuart, Jamey Johnson, The Roys, Randy Travis, John Schneider, Larry Gatlin and the Oak Ridge Boys. Cash‘s daughter, Kathy,  spoke of how her father would be proud of the honor as he loved to write and mail letters.

Near the elegant Schermerhorn Symphony Center, the HGTV network had constructed an air-conditioned Lodge to be home to an intimate and busy concert schedule, which is, after all, what they specialize in doing on HGTV.  Big Machine artists Brantley Gilbert, Thomas Rhett and Florida Georgia Line were among artists enjoying the venue with fans during the festival.  Lisa Marie Presley, Luke Bryan, The GooGoo Dolls, Little Big Town and many more enjoyed meeting fans who were lucky enough to have tickets as hundreds more waited in the “hopefuls“ line.  

The Grand Ole Opry became the scene of a welcome-home party for country sweetheart, Kellie Pickler, upon her return from winning TV‘s “Dancing with the Stars” competition.  She was joined by her dance partner, Derek Hough, before an entire audience holding up their number “ten” score paddles, indicating the judges’ points from the show. 

Following Kellie, Kree Harrison, the most recent American Idol alumnus, made her Opry debut, joined by Keith Urban.  He commented that, when he was a judge on the show, he would close his eyes and imagine her singing at the Opry - now it’s a dream come true for her.  Lennon and Maisy from the ABC TV show “Nashville“, Ricky Skaggs, Diamond Rio, Bill Anderson and Rascal Flatts were on the bill as well. 

On Friday, the Grand Ole Opry celebrated Carrie Underwood’s fifth year as a member, having been inducted by Garth Brooks in 2008.  After covering Loretta Lynn’s fiftieth anniversary with the Opry only a few months ago, it is easy to visualize Carrie with the same honor four decades from today.

The official CMA Fest stages spanned the downtown area, covering a three mile radius, much to the exhaustion of fair-goers.  Stages in the Fan Fair X autograph signing area showcased numerous artists including Lady Antebellum, Craig Morrison and dozens more. The Transitions Performance Park Stage, across from the Country Music Hall of Fame, had a line-up which included Danielle Peck, Due West, The Cleverlys, Holly Williams, Chad Warrix and a special appearance by Festival veterans, the Marshall Tucker Band, with a special delight - “Can’t You See”. 

The Bud Light Stage outside the Bridgestone Arena, where the CMT Awards were held a few days earlier, hosted some of the finest country music has to offer.  Artists included the LoCash Cowboys, Pam Tillis and Lorrie Morgan, Krystal Keith, Emerson Drive, Lauren Alaina, Robin Meade, Bucky Covington and star singer/songwriter Rose Falcon, co-writer of “Give in to Me” from the film “Country Strong”, played to huge crowds. 

The next concert stop was the Riverfront Stage, where the fans were overjoyed with the comfortable weather rather than the usual high temps and baking sun.  Joe Nichols, Phil Vassar, Craig Campbell, Casey James, Darryl Worley, Jerrod Niemann, David Nail, The Grascals, Love & Theft, Gloriana, Maggie Rose, Colt Ford, Gretchen Wilson, Lonestar, Ronnie Milsap and more left the huge crowd on the banks of the Cumberland River screaming for more. 

And, of course, there was more, indeed.  The Fan Alley acoustic stage welcomed favorites such as Eric Lee Beddingfield, Striking Matches, Carolyn Dawn Johnson, and, Ireland’s charmer, Pete Kennedy, 2012 British Music Award winner.  

The Buckle Stage on Broadway brought us dozens more  singer/songwriters to surprise the visitors with songs they know well but had no idea who had written them.  One of the most refreshing was the performance of showman J. T. Harding, a co-writer of Uncle Kracker’s “Smile”, who has been collecting Number One honors in the industry.  

Before sunset on each of the four days, after the numerous stages had put their sound systems to bed for the evening, over 60,000 people walked, drove, or shuttled over the river to LP Field for the nightly superstar spectaculars - if they were lucky enough to have a ticket to the sold-out events.  Not that long ago, the actual “Superstar Spectaculars” were held on the Grand Ole Opry stage with such stars as Loretta Lynn, Trace Adkins, Jack Greene, Tammy Wynette, Pam Tillis, LeAnn Rimes and dozens more on each evening of Fan Fair.   (See also “CMA Fest Concerts at LP Field - With Surprises” by S.

CMA FEST CONCERTS AT LP FIELD - WITH SURPRISES

CMA FEST CONCERTS AT LP FIELD - WITH SURPRISES
by S. Parks

The crowds were bursting with anticipation as they took their seats for the first concert in the CMA Fest series at LP Field.  The very appreciative Luke Bryan, with a smile that could be seen from the back row, rolled through his hits and rocked the fans out of their seats with one sing-a-long hit after another.  Taylor Swift’s set began with her premiere country hit, “Tim McGraw” and Tim walked onto the stage to join her in their current “Highway Don’t Care”.  Keith Urban then made it a threesome with a classic Urban guitar solo.  We were quickly reminded why we love the concerts - it’s the surprises we wait for.

Eric Church delighted the fans and Miranda Lambert was as feisty as ever with her red microphone and sequined flames across her chest singing “Mama’s Broken Heart”.  Zac Brown Band closed the show with Kid Rock and Kenny Rogers, leaving the fans anticipating the coming shows even more.

The second LP Field show began with Randy Travis, much to the delight of the old school country fans.  The very talented Kip Moore was head over heels with joy to be able to perform for his fans at the Festival.  In his red Rolling Stones T-shirt, he covered the massive stage with “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck“, “Beer Money“ and “Hey Pretty Girl“.  

The always show-stopping Little Big Town did just that by opening their set in the center of the floor seats before taking us on a family harmony whirlwind tour of their number ones including “Pontoon”, “Tornado“ and “Boondocks“, leaving no question as to why they hold numerous awards.  They brought out surprise guest, Sheryl Crow for “Easy“ and her own “Soak Up The Sun“. 

Future country superstar, award winner and heart throb, Hunter Hayes, floored us with a classic Ray Davies high jump and owned the CMA stage with “I Want Crazy“. His surprises included Sheryl Crow and pop star Jason Mraz, who joined him on “Everybody’s Got Somebody But Me”.  Jason had commented earlier at the press conference backstage that he appreciates, and is inspired by, the songwriting community in Nashville and finds that in the pop world, many artists live in their own bubble and miss the joy of collaboration.  

Lady Antebellum owned the night with one hit after another, most leading to an audience sing-a-long.  “I Run to You“ began with a stunning a cappella opening, further enduring Lady A as one of the finest harmony groups in country music.  Dave, Charles and Hillary charmed us with “Need You Now”, took us “Downtown” and left us “Looking for a Good Time”.

Blake Shelton wound up the audience with “Footloose”.  He was backed by Gwen Sebastian, an artist from his TV show, “The Voice”.  The audience sang along with “Boys ‘Round Here” and, in true Blake fashion, he told his fans, since they were still standing and dancing after midnight, “You must be hillbillies”, as an intro to “Hillbilly Bone“.  He was presented with two commemorative plaques for album sales, one for his “Red River Blue“ endeavor. 

Just when you think this fantasyland ride through country music couldn’t get any better, Saturday night came.  

Country superstars, The Oak Ridge Boys, who had made many appearances throughout the Festival, had the crowd singing with “Elvira” and “American Made”.  They sang “Same Ole Me” and welcomed George Jones’ wife, Nancy, who thanked the band for recording and singing their Jones duet for George.  She said “I know he’s looking down and smiling right now.” 

Tyler and Brian of Florida Georgia Line were amazed at how far they had come in a year and gave the crowd what they wanted - their new single, “Round Here”, “Cruise”, and “Get Your Shine On”.  They hip-hopped through “Itz Just What We Do” to screams from their new fans.  Then major surprise guest, rocker Lenny Kravitz, played a set featuring “Always on the Run“ and “Let Love Rule“ and Jason Aldean joined him for “American Woman“.  

Dierks Bentley generously gave us bouncing beach balls with “Free and Easy” and bluegrass with “Up on the Ridge”.  He introduced hit songwriter Hillary Lindsey for a duet of her co-write, “Bourbon in Kentucky” and then “What Was I Thinking” and “Home“, with a meaningful message of how he either has visited, or will visit, each of the fans in their own hometowns.  Dierks added, “You guys are the reason we get to do what we do."

Kelly Clarkson played her first official set at “a country thing”, as she put it.  Her excitement was contagious and it was easy to see why we voted her the first winner of American Idol when she sang “Stronger”, “Don’t Rush” and “Because of You”.  Jason Aldean added Kelly to his surprise entrances for their Number One duet, “Don’t You Wanna Stay”.  Blowing us away with Garth Brooks’ “Ain’t Going Down Til the Sun Comes Up”, it went to an even higher level when Trisha Yearwood walked on to share the song.

Keith Urban shouted, “Thank you Nashville” and brought the house down.  He gifted us with “You Gonna Fly”, “Stupid Boy”, “Long Hot Summer”, and “Little Bit of Everything”, all featuring surreal guitar solos, classic Urban stage charisma and trademark smiles to light the arena.  The audience sang along to crowd-pleaser, “You Look Good in My Shirt”, drowning out the fireworks going off around the stadium.  Not to break from his customary performance style, he leaped into the audience, weaving through the fans in the floor seats and gave his guitar to a grateful fan.  We watched as cameras followed him leaving the arena while his band continued to play.  

On the grand finale show of the festival, the audience was hoping for a full set from Pam Tillis and Lorrie Morgan after their stunning rendition of the National Anthem.  These girls, who grew up backstage at the Opry with their equally famous fathers, will be out on the road with their “Grits and Glamour” tour to promote their new “Dos Divas” release.  Then Lee Greenwood raised 60,000 fans to their feet to sing along with “God Bless the USA”.  The evening was off to a great start.  

The impending stormy weather was almost scored with “Every Storm (Runs out of Rain)” by Gary Allan who also tore up the stage with “It Ain’t the Whiskey” and “Pieces”, his latest release.

Beginning with Brad Paisley, artists were cut short in their performances due to the storm threat.  A surprise walk-on by his “Karate” duet partner Charlie Daniels, who also shared some “The Devil Went Down to Georgia”, seemed to set the true country tone of the event.  Always a fan favorite, Brad closed with “Beat This Summer”.

The rush continued with a Lumineers’ cover from Lennon and Maisey from TV’s “Nashville” and went on to The Band Perry, who played their two hottest, but darkest numbers with superb stage presentations.  Jake Owen followed with “Anywhere With You“, only to find it would be his only song that evening.  Jake was happy to be invited to play his full concert set later for his fans on the Bobby Bones radio show. 

We are used to hearing Martina McBride’s voice take wings and fly over the arena crowd into Heaven in this closing slot of the festival, but this year it was the completely amazing Carrie Underwood who drew the honor.  Her humility was evident as she proclaimed, “We’re going to play as many songs as we possibly can,“ rather than commenting that “she” would sing as many songs as she could.  She rocked the crowd out of their seats with steady cams spinning around her as she shattered all memories of Guns and Roses’ version of “Paradise City” with her performance.  Brad Paisley joined her for their “Remind Me” duet and she couldn’t leave even this short performance without belting “Before He Cheats”, much to the fans’ delight, and send them home from the 2013 CMA Fest singing about bathroom Polo and Louisville Sluggers and wondering what 2014 will bring.    (See also “Country Music’s Biggest Party - The More (Concerts), the Merrier” by S.

CD: CHRIS RIDE - IN TROUBLE


CHRIS RIDE "IN TROUBLE"
Reviewer:: The Record Man, Dallas Texas
 
Well to put it bluntly, we have been hearing about this artist now for sometime, and for some reason information has been scarce except for rumors on music row in Nashville.
Last night a music video on the title song "IN TROUBLE" was released on you tube as a sneak preview for only 48 hours, with a promise that it would be deleted after that, once again adding to the mystery of this artist.
So in short, it was time to find out the facts (Since the public, including myself, has yet to hear this album). It seems that the artist CHRIS RIDE has been known to just drop in on songwriter nights in Nashville at different clubs , Play a few songs from the album and then disappear as quickly as he appeared.
So I went to work, First off trying to contact the artist (NO LUCK THERE) Then my aim was switch to contacting the producer of the album Doc Holiday who seems to be as reclusive as the artist, and after 9 phone calls to my industry contacts, I managed to reach Mr. Holiday by phone, filled him in on what I was trying to do (Get a copy of IN TROUBLE AGAIN to review it) Mr. Holiday told me flatly that was not possible until September of this year. After a brief begging he agreed to send me partial MP3's of the full album (16 original songs written by Chris Ride) with my personal promise not to release the tracks to anyone but myself for review purposes. I Agreed, and magic there were the 16 MP3's in my in box). OK I will make this as brief as possible, First off the video of the title song was awesome to say the lease. A High Def production worthy of any major network.  They bill him as the Bad Boy of Country Music, and his look sure fits the bill!!!  I listened to all 16 songs, The production was outstanding, top drawer, they cut no corners, and it's said that it took over a year to do the album at QUAD Studios In Nashville using Doc Holiday's legendary studio "A" team. Every song was better than the previous song, there were no album fillers on this release.  His music seems to be, in my opinion, what would happen if Dave Mathews, Bruce Springsteen and Chris Ride had a jam and this was the result. He's different. He's got a style, He can rock it  or he can make it smooth and moody. BUT I guess we are all going to have to wait until September. BUT REMEMBER THIS NAME "CHRIS RIDE", HE IS HERE IN COUNTRY MUSIC TO STAY!!!!!~

CD: Andy Griggs - Naked

Andy Griggs
Naked
Old Timer        5:21 Understanding Hank      3:21 Heart Hush          .12
You and Cocaine         4:15 Superman            2:41 I Wonder Do You Think of Me   3:04 D’em Boyz          2:32 Thrown Away             4:06 Long Time Coming         4:03
Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground          2:37 Between an Old Memory and Me          4:03 Blue Train            5:08 Me on His Mind          3:22

It’s late on a Friday night, and I really have nothing to do. It’s amazing that after a car accident, brain surgery, and maybe another one up and coming; that I’m stuck here fighting for my disability. It almost sickens me to think about all of the people that abuse the system and leave people like me fighting. Sorry, it’s been a bad week for me and I know if you’re even reading this then you are here about music. Well hey, I’m just another sad country song.
            Old Timer kinda sums up how I feel. The ups are ups and the downs are downs, but this song really puts it all in place. The good times outweigh the bad, the summer memories put those cold damn desolate winters to shame. And there’s always that woman that could warm the coldest of cabins.
            I guess you just gotta listen to Understanding Hank to really understand the great ‘Hank.’ I bet you’ve felt it in your years as well. It’s a true tribute to Hank Williams.
            Heart Hush is almost an exit and an intro. It introduces You and Cocaine. At least I’d hope it just introduces cocaine. Let’s just leave it at that.
            Superman is not at all what I expected by its name. It truly shows depth that I wasn’t expecting. Maybe some of you guys are like me and still have old girlfriends calling with one of these two types they expected but couldn’t put together in you.
            And with that, comes the perfect imagery to lead in to I Wonder Do You Still Think of Me. D’em Boyz has lyrics flowing as freely as Andy Griggs probably lives. It’s much different than the rest of the album so far. I just had to go do some research on this guy. It seems he’s already released three albums for RCA and another one by Montage. He’s hit the charts countless times, and it seems he’s still going strong.
            Let me just go through a few more. Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground is a beautiful acoustic ballad, that really showcases his vocal talent.
            Blues Train is funny because of the outtakes. Any Johnny Cash follower or anyone who’s even familiar with his music will love this. And, Me on His Mind is probably much more of a religious/acoustic prayer. The way it’s written really makes a lot more sense if you know any of Andy Griggs history.
            Overall, I thought is was an excellent album. You could notice the bluegrass strumming, the blue’s wailing, and the hint of jazz that perfected the recipe.

The Bankesters Recording at Compass Sound Studio
Working with Producer Alison Brown on Fall 2013 Release
 
(Nashville, TN) June 14, 2013 – Bluegrass band The Bankesters have started recording tracks for their fifth album, and Compass Records debut, scheduled for release in the fall. The new album is being produced by Compass co-founder Alison Brown and, together with the band, they have completed several weeks of pre-production with a great set of new material. The songs will showcase their signature family harmonies and the distinctive lead voices of each of the Bankester daughters, including 2012 IBMA Momentum Award winner Emily Bankester.
 
Patriarch and guitarist Phil Bankester comments: "Our first four projects were recorded in our home and this is our first opportunity to record in a real recording studio.  We're extremely excited about working with Compass Records and about this new recording project." Emily Bankester echoes those sentiments: "Hearing all the new material come together for the first time is so exciting. I'm really looking forward to sharing this project with everyone!"

 
The Bankester's 2012 release Looking Forward was re-released by Compass Records Group for broader distribution on May 28th and is currently eligible for the 2013 IBMA Awards. Engine 145 called the album one of the best of 2012 while the track “Looking Forward To Looking Back" climbed to the #1 spot on the Bluegrass Today airplay chart earlier this year.
