SARA HICKMAN SHINE

SARA HICKMAN ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM SHINE, HER DEBUT RELEASE ON KIRTLAND RECORDS, AVAILABLE NOW
The “State Musician of Texas” Delivers Latest Collection of Luminous Melodies
NASHVILLE, Tenn (July 23, 2013) - One of Performing Songwriter's 100 Most Influential Independent Artists, Sara Hickman releases her Kirtland Records debut album Shine today. The 10-song collection, which blossomed out of simple poems and visions on pieces of paper, is an adventurous effort for the official “State Musician of Texas,” whose songs were brought to life with guidance from Los Angeles-based musician, producer and fellow songwriter Jim Jacobsen.
“Usually, I have a plan, an entire concept for a recording in mind, and I then write the songs to fit into that ideology,” explains Hickman. “However, with Shine, I just had fun. I wanted to take risks and just go with the flow, starting with those scraps of ideas.” After previously recording in Austin, Nashville and New York, Hickman also shifted her creative environment for making the album, relocating to L.A., away from family and friends to experience a different energy. She worked alone in the studio with Jacobsen, whose credits include the Eels, Parthenon Huxley, Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs and hundreds of TV shows and commercials. Shine was mastered by Dave McNair (Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen).
“Making music is such a weird job because who knows where it comes from?” she says. “There's nothing, then … Bam! A song exists. And if it connects with other people, that weirdness blends into blissful camaraderie. Or it pisses people off. But I guess that's what art/music is supposed to do – cause a reaction. Otherwise, you're just a feral cat, but you aren't aware of the fact.” As Rolling Stone puts it, "Tuneful, clever and carefully observed, Sara Hickman's material has all the strengths expected of a contemporary Texas songwriter, plus one more - whimsy."
Within its certain spontaneity, Shine testifies to Hickman’s diverse and emotional songwriting capabilities that appeal to a wide range of audiences. The title track offers a motivational message that inspires listeners, as Hickman puts it, “to come out of their shell.” Meanwhile, “You Are Not Alone” is also an optimistic, compassionate song that promises hope and encouragement to anyone who may be withdrawn or feeling isolated.
Hickman doesn’t just write and sing about those who face day-to-day challenges, she lives it. She is renowned for civic outreach initiatives, having raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the Dallas Dance for Life, House the Homeless, Bryan’s House, Amnesty International, homeless shelters and Mothers’ Milk Bank. She has visited Romania to deliver clothing, money and supplies to orphans, and personally raised more than $50,000 for the Hill Country Youth Ranch, a safe haven for severely abused children in Ingram, Texas. Austin has twice celebrated “Sara Hickman Day” in 1996 and 2009 to honor not only her musical accomplishments, but also her dedication and community involvement.
Hickman has been lauded by the Dallas Observer and the Austin Music Awards in categories including Best Musician, Best Producer, Best Indie Release, Best Major Label Release and Best Female Vocalist. The Maverick Report proclaimed, "Cut to the chase - Sara Hickman. Genius. Not only is she a singer-songwriter par excellence, but she possesses a self-confidence and empowerment unheard of for a creative artist in this industry."
Coinciding with the release of Shine, Hickman is pleased to have built a promising new relationship with Luna Guitars. The mission of Luna Guitars is to craft fine stringed instruments with artistic sensibility that are comfortable, affordable, and inspirational to people of all ages and walks of life. Hickman found the guitar manufacturer to be an ideal match and will be taking Luna Guitars on the road for her 2013 Shine tour.

NEW ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: JJ Lawhorn


NEW ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: JJ Lawhorn
By Bob Doerschuk
© 2013 CMA Close Up® News Service / Country Music Association®, Inc.
Many artists draw from their background, but the music of 19-year-old JJ Lawhorn goes deeper, to embody the sights and sounds, aromas and soul, of rural America.
Raised on his family’s Virginia farm, he never dreamed of knocking on doors up and down Music Row. His plan was to study agriculture at Virginia Tech and devote his life to farming. Then, in the spring of 2010, producer Jeremy Stover came across a Lawhorn performance on YouTube. He tracked the young artist down; within a year, Lawhorn had signed with EMI Publishing and, in June 2011, to Average Joes Entertainment.
Produced by Stover and released on July 16, the 13 tracks of Original Good Ol’ Boy sound the way hay smells and the world looks from the bed of a pickup truck. Lawhorn wrote three of these songs alone and co-wrote the rest, investing each one with the kind of authenticity you can’t conjure in the studio. Some of this stems from his delivery: He drawls “count” as two syllables and nearly stretches “around” to three on his solo-written single “Stomping Grounds.”
And his lyrics are extraordinarily evocative, often beginning with a snapshot-like picture: “Red clay mud caked up on the door” brings us close to the vehicle and its no-nonsense driver on “You Can Tell a Man by His Truck” (written by Lawhorn, Stover and Ben Hayslip).
Ultimately, it’s the whole package — the rough-edged music, the painterly words and Lawhorn’s conviction — that makes this a most auspicious debut.
IN HIS OWN WORDS
DREAM DUET PARTNER
“Alison Krauss or Chris Stapleton.”
SONG YOU WISH YOU’D WRITTEN
“‘Silver Wings,’ by Merle Haggard.”
TITLE OF YOUR AUTOBIOGRAPHY
The Road Less Traveled.
YOUR GREATEST CHALLENGE
“The only challenge I have is to be all that I can be.”
LUCKY CHARM
“I don’t believe in luck. I believe in God’s plan for my life.”

JOSH THOMPSON COLD BEER WITH YOUR NAME ON IT

JOSH THOMPSON RELEASES FIRST SINGLE WITH SHOW DOG - UNIVERSAL MUSIC

“COLD BEER WITH YOUR NAME ON IT” ADD DATE SET FOR AUGUST 12
AVAILABLE AT ITUNES TODAY


July 23, 2013, Nashville, TN – Show Dog Universal Music is set to release their first Josh Thompson single, “Cold Beer With Your Name On It,” to iTunes today, July 23, with an official radio add date of August 12. This is Thompson’s follow up to his top 20 hit, “Comin’ Around” released in 2011. His previous hits include “Beer On The Table”, “Way out Here”, and “Won’t Be Lonely Long.”

“I can’t tell you how excited I am to share new music with country radio and the fans. It feels really good to be back out there with my new label Show Dog Universal and their awesome team,” says Thompson. “To me, ‘Cold Beer With Your Name On It’ is both a love song and a heartbreak song.  It's a good-ole-boy’s way of dealing with both subjects; whether you miss someone or want to get more of someone, there's a cold beer with their name on it.”

"Josh is a seasoned songwriter, a sensational singer and an electrifying entertainer,” adds Tom Baldrica, VP Promotion Show Dog – Universal Music. “He has been built the foundation for a solid career, and now is the time that he will explode!  "Cold Beer With Your Name On It" is going to be the jet fuel!!!"

A constant road warrior, Thompson is currently touring the country, with a major fall tour announcement coming soon.

Interview with RAY SCOTT

Interview with RAY SCOTT

 
RAY SCOTT, charismatic American singer / songwriter from Nashville, re-visits Europe this summer within his „High Road Tour”, on the crest of success of his hit songs, „Those Jeans” (8 consecutive weeks #1 at European Hot Disc Chart) and „High Road”. He’ll play dates in Poland, Denmark, Czech Republic and Germany, backed by Polish, Nashville-recording Michael Lonstar Band. German fans can see Ray Scoot & Michael Lonstar on August 1 at „Music Stage by Barny” in Langenau. Concert starts at 20:30. In Denmark Ray and Michael will play full band shows at COUNTRY MUSIC FESTIVAL SILKEBORG on August 10.


Lamitschka:  Music has many new fans throughout Europe who may be hearing about you for the first time. How would you describe yourself and the music you play to someone who has never seen or heard you?

Ray Scott: I am a modern country singer with a traditional and retro feel and sound...  Classic yet progressive..

Lamitschka:  How was the last year for you? What were your highlights?

Ray Scott:  This last year for me was very busy..  "Those Jeans" was released late in the year, with a successful video, and became a hit on XM radio, as well as being number one on the Hotdisc chart in Europe..  It has been very exciting to see this happen from an independent status..  a dream come true, really..

Lamitschka:  What is your latest CD and how's it doing?

Ray Scott:  My latest cd is called "Ray-ality", and it's doing quite well, based on the success of "Those Jeans"..

Lamitschka:  How did you choose the title for the CD?  Is there a story behind the name?

Ray Scott:  "Ray-ality" is just a fun word I created depicting the "reality" of Ray, of my life..  It's a little wacko, just like me.. 

Lamitschka:  Please tell us about the songs on your album (influences, etc).

Ray Scott:  The songs on my album are simply an extension of my thoughts and experiences, along with a little embellishment..  I enjoy writing in all types of moods..  this is just a group of songs that offer a look out of my own personal window..  and that window needs cleaning..  ha..

Lamitschka:  What is the difference between your last CD and your current one?

Ray Scott:  The difference in “Crazy Like Me” and Rayality is mainly the fact that more work went in "Rayality"..  “Crazy Like Me” was a culmination of old demos mainly, maybe not quite as focused as the newer one.  With that said, I still love Crazy Like Me..  It was a good representation of where I was in my life and career at the moment..

Lamitschka:  Your current single is being played by radio. And the video clip is doing very well, aired by some tv networks, GAC included. What do you feel is special about this song that makes people want to hear it?

Ray Scott:  I think "Those Jeans" is popular because it's different.  It's a funny, self deprecating story.  It's the type of song most people don't hear much these days, very unique compared to what else is out there currently being played, and I think that's what attracts people to it..  I'm very thankful..

Lamitschka:  Do you know what will your next single be?

Ray Scott:  The next single will be "High Road", coming very soon.

Lamitschka:  What kind of songs do you like to record the most?

Ray Scott:  I enjoy recording all kinds of songs, slow, rocking, funny, serious, and everything in between..  i think it's important to be diverse, to keeps things interesting.  Everything should not sound the same.

Lamitschka:  How much creative control do you have over your music?

Ray Scott:  I have complete creative control over my music..  I wouldn't have it any other way.  I love it.

Lamitschka:  There's a lot of work that goes into a high ranked hit. What did it take to make it in your case?

Ray Scott:  I'd say it took a lot of hard work and paying dues over the years, and a little bit of luck as well..

Lamitschka:  Do you have any interesting stories about how fans have been affected by your music?

Ray Scott:  I had a man at one of my shows recently, who dropped to one knee, with a big diamond ring in his hand, and proposed to his girlfriend, asked her to marry him, while I was playing "Those Jeans".  He told me that was her favorite song.  she said yes..  ;)


Lamitschka:  Who inspires you musically and how deep do your musical roots run?

Ray Scott:  My musical roots run deep.  My father was and is still a great singer in North Carolina..  I grew up hearing him perform from a very young age, and he is the reason I do this.  I'm also very influenced by some of the great country music from the 1970's and on.. 


Lamitschka:  What do you think about today's music scene versus its past and where do you see it going in the future?

Ray Scott:  There are many challenges in today’s music scene, brought on by illegal downloading, and different philosophies at record companies, but there are also many opportunities for artists to get heard that weren't there 10 years ago.  We must simply roll with the changes and adapt.  That's the way it has always been.  In the future, I only hope that songwriters will be more fairly compensated for their work..  Too many people are having their careers literally "stolen" from them due to illegal downloading, and poor compensation otherwise.. 

Lamitschka:  What do you think about today's music industry?

Ray Scott:  Today's music industry is and can be very exciting, but I am saddened that physical cds or product is falling by the wayside..  many people only possess their music in cyberspace.  They don't buy cds, look at the artwork, or cherish music in the same way that people used to..  Music seems more disposable to people all the time.  I find that troubling.

Lamitschka:  If you had the chance to change something about the music industry, what would it be?

Ray Scott:  I think I answered that question in my last answer..  I'd like to see people still wanting and purchasing physical product.  The art of the album is in danger of extinction.

Lamitschka:  As an artist, you so many tasks such as recording, touring, songwriting. What do you like best, what's your favorite activity?

Ray Scott:  I think I enjoy all aspects equally.  The whole process is a joy to go through.  I truly enjoy touring and discovering new places in the world.  I have thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning new things about many European countries.

Lamitschka:  What was your big break that got you into the music business?

Ray Scott:  My first break in Nashville came when legendary songwriter/producer, Norro Wilson, heard a cheap demo of mine, and came down to the marina where I was working to meet me.  He and Buddy Cannon volunteered to record some "sides" on me to help me find a record deal.  They also got me a developmental writing deal with Acuff Rose publishing, thus beginning my writing career as well..  That was in 1997.  It's been a long road.  I will always be grateful to them. 

Lamitschka:  What inspired you to become an artist and songwriter?

Ray Scott:  My father inspired me to want to become a country artist and songwriter..  As I mentioned before, he was a local and regional artist who performed around the Carolinas and Virginia in the US.
 


Lamitschka:  What drives you?

Ray Scott:  What drives me?  A Volkswagen...  Ha..  kidding..   What drives me is the wish to continue making original music, music that is immediately recognized as Ray Scott music.  I'm not driven by money or fame.  Only the love of this art form..

Lamitschka:  What's unique about you that will differentiate you from other artists?

Ray Scott:  My sound, my vocal style, and my stories and lyrics..  I don't do the typical paint by numbers approach.  I think people recognize that and appreciate it, though it is an acquired taste.  I do it for the folks who like it.  I'm not trying to please everyone..

Lamitschka:  Who is your biggest critic, yourself or others?

Ray Scott:  I'm my biggest critic,  though some others may wish to argue..  Ha!

Lamitschka:  When you get time off, how do you like to relax?

Ray Scott:  When I get time off, I enjoy motorcycle riding, or being near the water in some way.  I also enjoy good movies and downtime with good friends..

Lamitschka:  Is there anything in your life that you would change if you could?

Ray Scott: I feel like I have been on the right path, though if I could change anything in my life, it would be going through the divorces.  They have been painful.  On the flip side, they have also inspired some pretty good songs, so there's a trade-off.  We all need the pain to fell the pleasure..

Lamitschka:  What hopes and desires do you have?

Ray Scott:  My hopes and desires are simply to continue doing what I love for a living, and to improve as a person with each new day..

Lamitschka:  What has been the biggest disappointment on your artistic way?

Ray Scott:  My biggest disappointment along my artistic way has been my own failure to take the reins of my career sooner than I did..  I wasted a lot of time believing other people knew what was best for me and my music..  and my business..

Lamitschka:  Many European fans travel to the United States to attend the several of the music festivals as CMA Fest for the opportunity to see so many of their favorite artists, bands and celebrities. Will you be participating and how will the fans be able to find you?

Ray Scott:  Well, I am answering this quest post CMA Fest, so I guess it's too late to answer..  Things went well though, and I was very busy.  I met a lot of people along the road that week.. 

Lamitschka:  Is there any place you haven't played that you would like to?

Ray Scott:  I always want to play in new places, new countries, cities, etc.  I can't name any really specific place I'm looking forward to play..  I enjoy EVERY new opportunity..   This summer, I am looking forward to play in Denmark and the Czech Republic for the first time, as well as return visits to Poland and Germany..

Lamitschka:  What can your fans expect to see when they see you in concert?

Ray Scott:  My fans can expect to see a man enjoying singing his songs and telling his stories..  I don't have an elaborate stage show.  No pyrotechnics.  I just try to get my songs across in a simple, relatable way, and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as i do.

 Lamitschka:  Do you like touring outside USA? How often do you visit Europe and/or other continents?

Ray Scott:  i do love touring outside the USA..  I have been going to Europe a couple of times a year recently..  I enjoy going all over the world..


Lamitschka:  When you're on tour, do you have time to play tourist?

Ray Scott:  I do play tourist from time to time..  I love seeing historic places, and soaking up the local culture of the places I go.


Lamitschka:  What's the best compliment a fan has ever given you?

Ray Scott:  I had a fan tell me I was their favorite since Johnny Cash..  I really appreciated that.  The man In Black was a large influence on me, outside of my own father..

Lamitschka:  What's your favorite song that you wish you could have recorded or wrote?

Ray Scott:  My favorite song I didn't write or record is "Live Forever" by Billy Jo Shaver.  it has a moral code and spirituality about it that surpasses most songs I have heard..  It makes me feel good to listen to it, and it reminds me of some simple rules of life..  I can only hope I could write a song that could speak to someone else in the same way.

Lamitschka:  Fans are always hungry for good road stories. Do you have one you can share with us (come on don’t be shy)?

Ray Scott:  I once saw Billy Yates riding bitch on the back of a scooter in China..  Ha!

Lamitschka:  Describe what a perfect day is like for you.

Ray Scott:  My perfect day is to wake up after sleeping as long as I want, drink a great cup of coffee, take a long ride on my Harley, and watch the sunset over the gulf of Mexico with the one I love..  details in between can vary..


Lamitschka:  What message would you like to send your European fans?

Ray Scott:  Hey all you European country music lovers!  Thanks for making "Those Jeans" a hit in your country!  I hope to see you all soon for a big show and an even bigger party!   God Bless!

Country Thunder Comes to a Close After
Fun-Filled Weekend of Headline Entertainment


2014 Country Thunder festival set for July 24 – 27

Renewals available now

Tickets go on sale to the general public this coming Tuesday, July 23
Twin Lakes, Wisc. (July 22, 2013) – Country Thunder ended with the rumble of 30,000+ people as Jake Owen and Hunter Hayes brought the four-day long festival to a close.  Additionally, the main stage, presented by Toyota - Let's Go Places, was energized with performances by Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Little Big Town, Dierks Bentley, Chris Young, Lee Brice, Dustin Lynch, and more.

“This was the best festival crowd of my entire Summer tour.” – Dustin Lynch

“I am so thankful for all the fans, and everyone who came together to make Country Thunder such a fantastic event this year,” said Executive Producer Troy Vollhoffer. “We are looking forward to next year, renewals are already underway and we’ll be announcing some of that lineup soon!  We can’t wait to come back with more amazing country music and good times with friends.”

“This is definitely the biggest festival we play all year.  It’s a blast!  It is the ultimate festival vibe, everybody is here camping out and that’s what it’s all about.  It’s fun for everybody, not just us, but the fans too.” – Hunter Hayes

This year’s festival featured more on-site entertainment than ever before as patrons were invited to get behind the wheel of a Toyota Tundra, Tacoma, 4Runner, Sequoia or FJ Cruiser at the Toyota Drive Center off-road course, which featured exciting new obstacles and challenges as well as mechanical bull riding and the human slingshot, and an array of food and specialty item vendors.  In addition, DJ DU kept the late night Electric Thunder circus tent hopping with dance music while The Roys Pickin’ Porch was introduced as a new attraction for bluegrass music lovers.

“This is my second Country Thunder ever, just as big of a party this time and may be bigger than last time. I am loving it!  There is nobody more passionate than country music fans.  I will play Country Thunder anytime I am invited.” – Brett Eldredge

“Country Thunder was absolutely amazing this year.  It is so much fun to interact with the fans that watch GAC and those that listen to me on SiriusXM,” says Storme Warren.  “This event has become more about a lifestyle than just who the headliner is, and that makes for a big party!”

“The crowd here is great.  This is one of the best festivals we could ever play, and that is around the world.  We play several country festivals from Australia to Europe and this one and maybe one other are by far my favorites.  The fans are just out of control and I love out of control.” – Joe Nichols

Ticket and camping renewals are currently available for Country Thunder 2014. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Tuesday, July 23 at 2pm CT.
