STEVE WARINER IT AIN’T ALL BAD, TO BE RELEASED ON SEPT. 10

STEVE WARINER UNVEILS COVER ART AND SONG LINEUP FOR NEW ALBUM, IT AIN’T ALL BAD, TO BE RELEASED ON SEPT. 10
 
Upcoming Performances Include Grand Ole Opry on July 17 in Nashville, CMA Songwriter Series at Joe’s Pub on July 23-24 in NYC, and Texas Dates in August
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – July 15, 2013 – Country music singer/songwriter Steve Wariner will release his new album, It Ain’t All Bad, on Tuesday, Sept. 10. This is his first non-instrumental album in more than eight years, and he produced the album and wrote or co-wrote all 12 songs. Wariner will release the album on his own label, SelecTone Records, and it will be distributed by Allegro Distribution, a division of the Allegro Media Group. 

“I am excited to introduce these new songs to my fans,” said Wariner. “My friends and I have written these songs over the last few years, and I’ve been saving them for this project. I’ve had fans come up and ask me when I was going to do another album with vocals on it. I didn’t mean to take an eight-year break from singing on an album. I just had such a blast making my guitar tribute to Chet Atkins, so I followed it up with another instrumental album. Now I’ve got to remind folks that I still sing,” he said with a laugh.   
Wariner's co-writers on this album are Al Anderson, Bill Anderson, Kent Blazy, Rick Carnes, Rockie Lynne, Rob McNelley, Karyn Rochelle, Jim Rushing, Mike Severs, Allen Shamblin and Tom Shapiro.

The 12 songs featured on It Ain’t All Bad are:
1)  “It Ain’t All Bad”  (Steve Wariner, Allen Shamblin)                  
2)   “Voodoo”  (Steve Wariner, Al Anderson)
3)  “Arrows at Airplanes”  (Steve Wariner, Rockie Lynne, Mike Severs)

4)   “Don’t Tell Her I’m Not”  (Steve Wariner, Karyn Rochelle)
5)   “Bluebonnet Memories”  (Steve Wariner, Rick Carnes)
6)   “What More Do You Want?”  (Steve Wariner)
7)   “Spokes in a Wheel”  (Steve Wariner, Kent Blazy)
8)   “I Want to Be Like You”  (Steve Wariner, Bill Anderson, Tom Shapiro)
9)   “It’s Called a Brand New Day”  (Steve Wariner, Rob McNelley)
10)  “Whenever I See You”  (Steve Wariner, Rick Carnes)
11)  “‘48 Ford”  (Steve Wariner, Jim Rushing)
12)  “A Thousand Winds”  (Steve Wariner)
Wariner, who hosted the NAMM 100 Top Dealer Awards last Friday (July 12) at Summer NAMM in Nashville, will perform on the Grand Ole Opry this Wednesday, July 17. He will travel to New York City next week to perform with Bob DiPiero, Brett Eldredge and Tia Sillers at Joe’s Pub on Tuesday and Wednesday, July 23-24 as part of the CMA Songwriter Series.

Wariner has placed 14 songs at No. 1 on the country charts: “Holes in the Floor of Heaven” (which won both the CMA Single and Song of the Year Awards and the ACM Song of the Year Award), “Tips of My Fingers,” “The Weekend,” “Life’s Highway,” “I Got Dreams,” “The Domino Theory,” “Some Fools Never Learn,” “You Can Dream of Me,” “Small Town Girl,” “Lynda,” “Where Did I Go Wrong,” “All Roads Lead to You,” “I Should Be with You,” and “What If I Said” (Duet with Anita Cochran). Wariner is also well-known for such hits as “Two Teardrops,” “I’m Already Taken,” “Kansas City Lights,” “Lonely Women Make Good Lovers,” “Leave Him Out of This,” “Burnin’ the Road House Down,” and more.
In addition to writing many of his own songs, Wariner has written hits for other artists including Garth Brooks (“Longneck Bottle”), Keith Urban (“Where the Blacktop Ends”), Clint Black (“Nothin’ But the Taillights”), Bryan White (“One Small Miracle”), and more. Peter Tork of The Monkees recently recorded Wariner’s song “Crash Course in the Blues” for an album available through Tork’s website. Fifteen of Wariner’s compositions have been given BMI Million-Air Awards for being broadcast on radio in excess of one million times.
Wariner is also an acclaimed guitarist who was mentored by the legendary Chet Atkins. He has released three successful instrumental albums on his SelecTone Records label: Guitar Christmas, Steve Wariner c.g.p….My Tribute to Chet Atkins (which includes his song “Producer’s Medley,” winner of the 2010 GRAMMY Award for Best Country Instrumental Performance), and Guitar Laboratory.

CD: Craig Morgan – This Ole Boy

Craig Morgan – This Ole Boy

1. This Ole Boy (4:21) 2. More Trucks Than Cars (3:32) 3. The Whole World Needs A Kitchen (3:29) 4. Country Boys Like Me (3:27) 5. Show Me Your Tattoo (2:50) 6. Love Loves A Long Night (3:25) 7. Being Alive And Livin' (3:17) 8. Fish Weren't Bitin' (3:08) 9. Better Stories (3:13) 10. I Didn't Drink (3:24) 11. Corn Star (3:18) 12. Summer Moon (3:41)

Craig Morgan begann 2000 seine Karriere als Countrysänger, nachdem er zuvor beim Militär war. Sein erstes Album brachte ihm allerdings noch nicht den erwünschten Erfolg. Erst mit seinem dritten Album 2005 kam der erste und bisher einzige Nummer-1-Hit und einige Top 10 Singles folgten. Sein 2012 veröffentlichtes Album This Ole Boy, war das bisher höchst platzierteste in den Billboard Charts (Platz 5).
Die 12 Songs auf dem Album bieten Abwechslung zwischen langsamen, gefühlvollen Liedern und den etwas rockigeren gute-Laune-Liedern. Die insgesamt sechs Balladen sind alle auf ihre Weise schön, nehmen mich persönlich aber nicht unbedingt mit, wenn ich auf den Text achte. Man hört sie einmal, aber ich persönlich habe nicht das Verlangen sie gleich noch einmal abzuspielen. Country Boys Like Me und I Didn't Drink gefallen mir noch am besten. Meine Lieblingssongs von diesem Album sind definitiv bei den schnelleren Liedern dabei. Being Alive and Livin genau wie Better Stories handeln beide davon das Leben zu genießen und bringen diese Lebensfreude auch in ihren Melodien rüber. Show me Your Tattoo hat keine große Story zu erzählen, macht aber einfach Freude beim Zuhören und geht sofort ins Ohr.

Insgesamt ein Album, dass man sich anhören kann, einige mitreißende Songs zu bieten hat und zurecht auf Platz 5 war. Wie oft man sich das Album dann letztendlich anhört, ist eine andere Frage.

RANDY TRAVIS REMAINS IN CRITICAL CONDITION BUT HAS STABILIZED

RANDY TRAVIS REMAINS IN CRITICAL
CONDITION BUT HAS STABILIZED

 
Plano, TX (July 15, 2013) – Video Transcript: Randy Travis update, July 15

VIDEO: http://media.baylorhealth.com/

TRANSCRIPT:

((Dr. Michael Mack))

My name is Michael Mack. I’m a cardiac surgeon and the medical director of cardiovascular disease at Baylor Health Care System in Dallas.

I am joined by Dr. Erwin who is an intensivist at The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano and Mary Davis who is the fiancée of Randy Travis.

We would like to update you as to Mr. Travis’ condition since our last statements early last week.

As events have occurred it’s like putting pieces of a puzzle together. It’s been much clearer as to what events transpired and what Mr. Travis’ medical condition is.

On Sunday, July 7, he was admitted through the emergency room of Baylor McKinney hospital whereupon he was put on life support. He was then transferred here to The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano for a higher level of support.

For the first 48 hours after transfer he required mechanical devices to support his circulation and his heart.

His heart did respond positively to that and after a 48-hour period of time we were able to wean him from that support.

During this period of time of resuscitation, he suffered a stroke. As a result of that stroke, pressure built up in his brain that required an emergency neurosurgical operation to relieve that pressure.

That operation was successful and Mr. Travis has awakened since that operation.

In terms of putting together the sequence of medical events, we were concerned initially that he had acute viral myocarditis as a cause of this.

As we’re able to put the pieces of the puzzle together, he did suffer an acute viral illness over the past three weeks, but that seems to have tipped over a more chronic condition.

He has what’s called idiopathic cardiomyopathy, which means he has scarring of his heart muscle that is causing his heart to be weak and not able to support his circulation without help of either medical devices of medication.

We performed a biopsy of his heart muscle and it shows scar tissue. It does not show active infection. From the appearance on echocardiograms, which are images of his heart, this is not the appearance of either drugs or alcohol causing the heart condition.

Mr. Travis does have a family history of cardiomyopathy and it is more likely related to that.

At the current time, Mr. Travis’ condition is stabilized and I would like to turn to Dr. Erwin for a further update.

((Dr. Gary Erwin))

Thank you. As Dr. Mack mentioned previously, Mr. Travis is no longer requiring any mechanical devices that help support his heart. He does remain on intravenous medications to help support his heart, but we are decreasing the doses of those everyday and actually beginning to start him on oral medications which he will use long term to help support his heart.

As a result of his heart condition, acutely, and the stroke, he was put on a ventilator to help him breathe during his hospitalization. He remains on that, but we are decreasing that support daily.

He is breathing spontaneously with the help of the ventilator and hope to have him weaned off of that very soon breathing completely on his own.

In terms of his stroke, he has responded well to the surgical procedure he had to relieve the pressure in his brain. We’re seeing improvements in brain scans showing decreased swelling of his brain. He is awake and alert interacting with his family and friends and beginning to start doing some early physical therapy.

We do anticipate that he will need to stay here at The Heart Hospital for another two to three weeks to stabilize his heart during which time we will begin aggressive physical therapy. After he is discharged from here, we anticipate transfer to an inpatient facility where can receive aggressive physical therapy. We anticipate it will take months to recover from the stroke.

I would now like to ask Mary Davis, Randy’s fiancée, to say a few words. Mary.

((Ms. Mary Davis))

Thank you. First and foremost, I just want to thank the friends, the family, the outpouring of love and affection that has shown up at the hospital and at home and through several different avenues of support.

I know that those are prayers that have helped mend his heart along with the skilled hands of the physicians and doctors and nurses here at The Heart Hospital of Baylor in Plano.

I know that Randy feels each and every one of those. He feels the hands of the doctors and the care of the nurses and the love of his fans. His friends and family have all been touched by that. He is responding well to voices and he sees and he understands. He’s miles beyond where any of us thought he would be a few days ago.

It’s heart-warming to see that we have such a strong person under there that’s willing to fight with us. We all know now that we had greatness to work with. We ask for your continued support. I know that Randy will be so touched by that when he understands the magnitude of it all.

So thank you and I appreciate everything everybody has done here at the hospital to give us the outcome that we’ve received. With the understanding now in retrospect that this could have occurred anywhere at anytime. We were in the finest place we could be to have the best outcome that we could ever have. Thank you.

((Dr. Michael Mack))

Although Mr. Travis is still in critical condition, it has stabilized. We do not anticipate significant changes on a daily basis, but we will keep you informed as his condition improves.
