JJ Lawhorn Releases Debut Album
“Original Good Ol’ Boy”
July 16, 2013 via Average Joes Entertainment
Single “Stomping Grounds” Already a Staple on
Sirius/XM’s The Highway
NASHVILLE, TN (July 2, 2013) – Country music newcomer, JJ Lawhorn, is set to release his Average Joes Entertainment debut album, “Original Good Ol’ Boy,” July 16, 2013 everywhere music is sold. Produced by Jeremy Stover, the new album streams exclusively on IHeartRadio/Clear Channel July 15-19 and is available for pre-order today on iTunes.
Named one of Billboard Magazine’s “New and Noteworthy Acts -- Billboard Presents Bubbling Under,” Lawhorn’s first single, “Stomping Grounds,” is already a staple on Sirius/XM’s popular, The Highway channel. The video for “Stomping Grounds” can be seen on GACTV.com, Zuus Country TV, The Boot.com and more. Watch it here.
“My life took a turn when I put a video of me singing a cover song on YouTube and one of my favorite country singer’s producer saw it and contacted me," states Lawhorn. “Now I’m about to release my debut album with Average Joes. I don’t think I could have asked for anything better.”
“Ultimately, it’s the whole package – the rough-edged music, the painterly words and Lawhorn’s conviction – that makes this a most auspicious debut.” - Bob Doerschuk, CMA Close Up
This stellar, debut disc is a perfect blend of sweet melody and raw sound influenced by some of the industry’s greatest rebels (Hank Williams, Waylon Jennings). Lawhorn wrote or co-wrote every song on the disc with contributions from some of Nashville's finest writers. From the auto-biographical title track, “Original Good Ol’ Boy,” to the extraordinarily evocative “Last of a Dyin’ Breed,” Lawhorn’s songwriting reflects an authenticity that will surely become his signature sound.

Man who drove Hank Williams on final tour dies at 79
Sometimes we miss or do not get news that is important in country music, and even though this particular news is sad, it is very important to our industry, because we lose another chapter in the life of Hank Williams Sr.s career. Thanks to my friend Ed Morris for alerting me of the passing of Charles Carr. Ed and I try to make sure that we send out the news from the past that is sometimes misplaced and country music fans miss these important parts of our life. Many times the news comes from another state and never gets to the music industry media.
Please keep in your thoughts and prayers the family of Charles Carr as they mourn the loss of their loved one.
MAY CHARLES SOUL REST IN THE PEACEFUL AND LOVING ARMS OF OUR BLESSED SAVIOR.
(Nashville, TN-7.2.13) Charles Carr was remembered as a dear friend and an honorable man after his death Monday morning was announced.
But for most he will probably always be known as the young man who was driving the blue Cadillac that carried country star Hank Williams on his final journey. Williams died Jan. 1, 1953, while he and Carr were on their way to a New Year’s Day concert in Canton, Ohio.
Carr, a retired investor from Montgomery, was 79, said his stepson, Don King.
Hank Williams was a friend of Carr’s family, and Carr knew him well when Williams hired him to drive him to Ohio. Carr was then a freshman at Auburn University. Carr told the Montgomery Advertiserin 2001 that he was asked about that fateful trip, which was plagued by terrible weather, “at least once every week.”
Carr said that he was reluctant to talk about Williams’ death for some time, but realized that Williams had legions of fans as well as friends.
King said that his family was always proud of the fact that Carr refused to make a profit from anything connected with Williams’ death.
“He never wanted it to appear as if he were trying to seem special or to gain anything from that coincidence,” King said. “But as he became older, he began to understand that this was a big part of American history, and he wanted to set the record straight.”
Carr was always a friend to the Hank Williams Museum, said museum director Beth Petty, who was saddened to hear of Carr’s death.
“I have the utmost respect for him,” Petty said. “Fans loved (Carr). He was always a crowd favorite.”
Carr’s death follows the late April death of Braxton Schuffert, 97, an original member of Williams’ Drifting Cowboys band.Services for Carr had not been finalized as of press time.

THE WORLD CLASS TALENT SEARCH: CASTING THE NET THIS SUMMER TO FIND "THE NEXT BIG SUPERSTAR" IN NASHVILLE’S MUSICAL FUTURE
FONTANEL'S PEPSI THEATER WILL PROVIDE THE STAGE FOR
NEW TALENT COMPETITION BEGINNING NEXT WEEK
(Nashville, Tennessee)—July 2, 2013 –Nashville is about to become home to a very unique talent search that promises the potential to open major music industry doors to a new generation of future superstars.
The World Class Talent Search will begin live auditions on Tuesday July 9 and is open to all formats of music with an emphasis on discovering new solo artists as well as artistic teamings and bands.
Venue for the competition will be one of Nashville premiere entertainment destinations, Fontanel, which will offer artists the full showcase resources of professional state-of-the-art sound and lights on their Pepsi Studio Galley stage. Auditions will continue every other Tuesday throughout July and August.
The search will culminate with a call sheet of artists who move through the audition phase to become competitors in the search competition, which launches on September 3 and will run at the Pepsi Studio Gallery stage at Fontanel through December. Winning artist will be announced on December 3 and awarded a full career facilitation development by a team of industry professionals that will include recording, management, booking, and national branding/PR opportunities.
Requirements to enter include an initial non-refundable $20 screening fee and completed online entry form that will afford review of talent either by YouTube or appropriate web link access or by in-person performance auditions at Fontanel. Entrants will be notified within 7 days of entry and/or in person audition if they are selected for the talent search finals phase of the competition beginning September 3.
Talent chosen to advance will receive 15 tickets to their performance night on the Fontanel stage in return for a final phase entry fee of $150.00. Additionally, video and audio taping of artist performances is permitted as is photography, affording each contestant the perceived bonus option of capturing top quality professional content for the promotion of their music while performing before a panel of recognized Nashville music industry judges.
The World Class Talent Search is being produced by JoAnn Berry in association with Fontanel. The first women to head a major Nashville based talent agency which she founded in partnership with Barbara Mandrell, Berry guided World Class Talent to the ranks of a major representation destination for artists as diverse as not only Barbara Mandrell and The Mandrell Sisters, but Randy Travis, Ricky Skaggs, and a virtual ‘who’s who’ roster of music greats. From the subsequent formation of a uniquely successful major concert production arm for World Class to the establishment in recent years of her own management group and now the development of the World Class Talent Search, JoAnn Berry has proven to be a constant force as a successful entrepreneur in management, booking, television, and career/project guidance.
The World Class Talent Search holds the promise of making summer 2013 an exciting one for new talent in Nashville. An incredible career-advancing showcase opportunity in front of a panel of industry professionals, for the comparative price of concert tickets and dinner...what's not to love?

Country’s LoCash Cowboys Invite U.S. Air Force Recruits on Stage at Country Stampede
Taped Episode of Adam Richman’s “Fandemonium” for New Series Airing on the Travel Channel This Fall
Nashville, TN, July 2, '13…..In celebration of the upcoming 4th of July weekend and in honor of those who serve, Country’s LoCash Cowboys asked members of the military to join them on stage last weekend at Country Stampede in Manhattan, Kansas for the final song in their set. The event marked the seventh straight year that the band has played the festival.
After filming their performance, Adam Richman from the Travel Channel taped a segment at the backstage party for his new original series Adam Richman’s “Fandemonium.” The duo grilled venison burgers and pork chops the LoCash way! The new show, premiering this fall, explores the extremes that superfans will pursue in order celebrate their passion. LoCash Cowboys' first self-titled album debuted just last week on Billboard’s Country Album Chart at #25.

NEW ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: The Henningsens
By Bob Doerschuk
© 2013 CMA Close Up® News Service / Country Music Association®, Inc.
These are halcyon times for Country vocal groups. So how does a new group stand out? The Henningsens have at least two ways of making an impression in this crowded field.
One involves songwriting: On American Beautiful, their Arista Nashville debut, Brian Henningsen, son Aaron and daughter Clara, as a trio or in various combinations, join with various co-writers on all 10 tracks, with consistently pleasing results.
Match that with singing that exceeds today’s standards for technique, expression and emotion, and you’ve got a winner on your hands. Producer Paul Worley captures every nuance of Clara’s phrasing and then pulls back to reveal their three-part power in all its glory. The title cut (written by all three with Brett Beavers) anchors on a punchy power-guitar riff and soars on a catchy, sing-along chorus. It’s no surprise that this single totaled 77 Country Aircheck and Billboard radio adds in its first week.
But dig into the album and you’ll discover other levels of artistry. A nostalgic fiddle and dreamy waltz setting take us deep into “Arkansas” (Brian and Clara with Cactus Moser), whose story of aged siblings gathered for a brother’s funeral casts a spell that lingers after the last chord dies. (Recollections of “kerosene nights and innocent days” draw us back into a nearly forgotten past.) And when they join voices to celebrate the light that guides them through stormy times on “To Believe” (all three with Jimmy Yeary), even doubters have to be left feeling a little less alone.
IN THEIR OWN WORDS
BOOK ON YOUR NIGHTSTAND
BRIAN: “Jayber Crow, by Wendell Barry.”
CLARA: “The Bible, Sense and Sensibility.”
AARON: “The Bible.”
WHAT YOU WOULD BE IF NOT A MUSICAL ARTIST
BRIAN: “A farmer.”
CLARA: “A marine biologist.”
AARON: “A senator.”
ALL: “Our producer, Paul Worley.”
SONG YOU’D WISH YOU’D WRITTEN
ALL: “‘The House That Built Me’ or ‘Wichita Lineman.’”
SOMETHING WE’D NEVER GUESS ABOUT YOU
ALL: “We get along really well but we love to argue. We call it debating.”

Jesus Can Put Me Together Again
Jesus Can Put Me Together Again - I'm Leaning On The Promises Of God - Memories of Mother - When They Rang The Golden Bells - Where No Castles Fall - Me & The Devil Can't Get Along Anymore - How Great Thou Art - Leaving on My Mind - I Like The Ol' Time Worship of the Lord
In today's world of 'perfect' music it's getting harder and harder to find the 'real deal,' especially in country music. Any recording studio worth it's salt can 'fix' any error, any slip of the tongue, any off key note....anything. That's what makes listening to modern country music so difficult. It's all pretty much samey-samey perfection, corporate produced to meet their standards of perfection, but what they have done in doing this, is removing the individuality, the gentle originality, the independent sound, the soul, yes the 'soul' of the music. So when a CD like this one by Cindy Hill passes through my hands and ears, I'm awake, I'm listening, I'm thrilled that I have found another pure and individualistic piece of music that is the 'real deal.' Cindy sings mostly old-time gospel with some originals on this CD, she's a fantastic mountain singer from Kentucky, making it so easy to hear what country music really should be like. She's a rural lady, she's lives in the country, she has an astonishingly beautiful voice, but mind....she's 'real' country. You won't hear this record on any top-forty so-called country music radio station. It would embarrass them. But it would also remind them, very strongly, what country music once was, and what it should 'still be' all about. It's kind of like corporate-greed has stolen the 'gift' away from rural America, polished it up, filled it full of antibiotics, washed it so clean there's not one piece of country 'dirt' anywhere to be found. Country music it ain't. This wonderful old-time gospel CD doesn't have any 'dirt' on it either, it's one of the purest, cleanest, astonishingly 'real' old time country gospel CD's I've heard in a long long time. I suspect once the Rural Roots Music Commission hears this, there will be not doubt in their mind about how 'country' this is. Expect to see, meet, and hear the delightful Cindy Hill, direct from Kentucky, at the LeMars Music Festival.
