    The names of the nominees are in, and country music sensation Codie Prevost’s dedication to his fans has once again earned him a place on the list of country music’s elite for the third time.
    Saskatoon, SK, July 17, 2013:  Codie Prevost has been nominated for the 2013 CCMA Award for “Interactive Artist of the Year”. He earned the nomination due to his exceptional relationship with his fans. Every Tuesday, the country music star’s dedication is apparent as he takes to twitter to talk directly with his followers. His twitter presence coupled with amazing charisma on facebook (as well as other social media) has earned him this nomination.
    The CCMA describes the “Interactive Artist of the Year” as one who executes excellence on social media. It is for that reason Prevost’s nomination was imminent. 
    Recently, the “Last Night All Day” songster was on twitter chatting with fans about everything including fishing, life, and his recent marriage. That kind of personal relationship is what Prevost’s personality exemplifies. He says his music is more about giving back than anything else. 
    “I feel very fortunate to be able to connect with my fans one on one thru social media” explains Prevost. “Every week I look forward to the Tuesday Night Twitter Party so that I can catch up with everyone.”  
    This is not the first time Prevost has had his hat in the ring at the CCMA Awards. He was nominated for both the 2011 and 2012 “Rising Star” Award as well. The talent and personality this artist possesses will assuredly bring him more success in the future.

Michael Martin Murphey Hits Top Ten of Billboard

Michael Martin Murphey’s Red River Drifter
Hits Top Ten of Billboard Bluegrass charts

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Red River Entertainment Recording Artist Michael Martin Murphey has already hit the Top Ten of the Billboard Magazine Bluegrass charts one week after the album’s release.

Red River Drifter is a solid Americana blend of Murphey's influences over the years, touching not only on bluegrass, but pop, jazz, country and even classical. Produced and co-written with his son, Ryan, and guitar ace Pat Flynn, it is also Murphey's
first album of all new original songs in nearly 20 years.
 
The response has been terrific:

“Herein are some of the most exquisite melodies he’s ever crafted; some of the finest singing of his later years..,  unquestionably some of the most complex lyrics he’s ever composed.., and tight, focused, emotionally resonant instrumental work. strikingly captured in bright, clear sonics. With a catalogue as broad and deep as Murph’s, it’s a fool’s errand to proclaim Red River Drifter the best album he’s ever delivered, but anyone who would dare assert it doesn't rank with the cream of the bluegrass, cowboy and early classic albums such as Geronimo’s Cadillac, Cosmic Cowboy Souvenir and Blue Sky-Night Thunder (from whence sprang the towering “Wildfire” and “Carolina in the Pines”) is in need of counseling.”

Following the 2012 release of Twist of Fate, Hey Romeo took home Group or Duo of the Year at last year's CCMA Awards, an award they also won in 2011.

The group joined country icon Gord Bamford on select dates during his 2012 cross-Canada tour and hosted the first annual Alberta Country Music Awards at Westerner Park in Red Deer.

VOCAL AND PERFORMANCE TALENTS
Inspirational Country Music Association Nominates Hoge

And Video of The Year

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 18, 2013)—Nashville singer/songwriter, performer and country recording artist Lucas Hoge celebrates four nominations with nods from the Inspirational Country Music Association (ICM).  

In keeping with the spirit of his music, Hoge returns to the 2013 ICM ballot for the third consecutive year –in 2012 Hoge was nominated for Best Male Vocalist Of The Year and in 2011 for New Artist of The Year.

In distinguished company along with artists Dolly Parton, Carrie Underwood, Josh Turner, Alan Jackson and Darius Rucker, Hoge is applauded for Entertainer of The Year, Male Vocalist of The Year, Song of The Year (“Have I Done Something”) and Video of The Year (“Sharing The Journey”). The ballot, voted on by membership, includes a stellar array of decorated names in the various categories that include entertainer, artist, new artist, song, songwriter, group, duo, musician, radio, radio station, film and television honors.

An artist always hopes to move and inspire people with his or her music. And the ICM nomination validates the premise and reason I am passionate and hopeful to make a difference. I am very honored to be nominated for the 19th Annual ICM awards among other great achieved artists,” says Lucas Hoge.


In November 2012, Hoge reached number one with “Have I Done Something”(written by Lucas Hoge and Jeff Dayton) on the ICM Inspirational chart. Kicking off 2013 with great momentum, “Sharing The Journey” (written by Lucas Hoge, Corey Barker and Laura Lynn) is nominated for Video of The Year. Climbing the Power Source Inspirational Country chart, the single is positioned in the number 10 slot (PowerSource Magazine--August 2013) and rising from number 35 on The Power Source TOP 75 Country Songs chart. Hitting the “big screen, ” Sharing The Journey” has garnered attention with over 25,000 hits within the first week of the video’s digital debut.  

The 19th Annual Inspirational Country Music Awards is scheduled to be held on October 24, 2013 at Two Rivers at Opryland in Nashville, TN.


The 2013 ICM Faith, Family & Country Awards Week is dedicated to honoring and showcasing the biggest names and emerging talent among artists who perform inspirational and Christian country music inspired by Faith, family, and country music.


An all-around entertainer (who is no stranger to largeaudiences on the big screen and center stage, in print, and over radio airwaves), Hoge’s reputation as a motion-moving performer, clever lyricist and stand-out vocalist precede him as he transcends borders into the acting arena; Hoge starred in Animal Planet’s Last Chance Highway and played the feature role in Clinton Gregory’s video “Too Much Ain’t Enough.”  With music at the forefront, his versatile artistry has landed him appearances on The Today Show, Inside Edition and he has graced the pages of People Magazine and Country Weekly; he has performed abroad and at some of country music’s biggest events and venues (CMA Fest and Opryland Hotel).
