Sony Recording Artist Angie Johnson Sings at Cheez-It 355
NASCAR Sprint Cup Race at The Glen in Watkins Glen, NY
 
                Nashville, TN (August 9, 2013) – Sony recording artist Angie Johnson will be a special guest at the Cheez-It 355 NASCAR Sprint Cup Race at The Glen, in Watkins Glen, NY this weekend where she will start the festivities by singing the National Anthem, serving as the Grand Marshal for the festivities, riding in the pace car and giving the “Driver’s start your engines” command for the famed race.
 
Johnson is also celebrating her own victory this week as she just released her very first single to radio, “Swagger” which she co-wrote.  The song is a fun up-tempo, forget your troubles and have a good time tune, guaranteed to make you wanna tap your foot!
 
The single is the 4th most added on the Music Row chart this week and Angie is the most added female artist this week. 
 
Johnson, who is still serving in the Air National Guard, was also awarded a Commendation Medal this past week from her Commander with the 571st in St. Louis, MO, where Johnson serves one weekend a month and two weeks a year in the Air National Guard.
Sony Music Nashville recording artist, Angie Johnson, began her military career as an intelligence analyst in the United States Air Force. She later toured as a vocalist with the prestigious Tops In Blue performance group for a yearlong temporary duty. Upon completion of Tops in Blue she was recruited into the Air Force Band as a full-time lead vocalist. She was honorably discharged after fulfilling her active duty commitment and then transitioned into the Missouri Air National Guard's 571st Air Force Band, as the lead vocalist in their Top 40 element, Sidewinder.  Angie was deployed with Sidewinder to an undisclosed location in the Middle East, where the band gave an impromptu performance for a small group of troops. An audience member recorded Angie's rendition of Adele's "Rolling In The Deep" and posted the video on YouTube, where it went viral. The now-famous video has received more than 3.3 million views and can be seen here: Angie Johnson YouTube Video. Television host Carson Daly saw the video, tracked Angie down via Twitter and invited her to audition for NBC’s “The Voice,” where she became a contestant on Team Cee Lo. The extensive media exposure, combined with her talent and tenacity, caught the attention of Sony Music where she signed a record deal in the fall of 2012.  Her debut EP, Sing For You, was released digitally May 21, 2013.

It is a rare opportunity to hear America's old-time country music songs done well, and extremely rare to hear them done well by artists from outside the USA.  Annette Hawkins and Kim Copedo are from New Zealand, and this album of super good country songs are super well done by this duo whose voices blend so well you'd think they were not only raised on a farm in Iowa, they were super-stars from Nashville that really know what 'country' music is.  What a pleasant experience to hear songs done so well 'away' from the discouraging make-believe sounds of Nashville these days.  Tom Petty is a famous rock and roller, and very recently when asked what he thought of today's country music, he said, "it's really really bad rock and roll with a fiddle."  What a treat to hear 'real' country music from this wonderful duo who have been making lots of commotion, and certainly lots of great country music in New Zealand.  They are both on tap to be inducted into America's Country Music Hall of Fame at the annual convention of the National Traditional Country Music Association in LeMars, Iowa this year.  It's a long long way from New Zealand for this couple to travel, but so do a lot of 'fans' of real-deal country music.  I expect folks to come from Canada, Ireland, England, France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, and even Spain this year.  Allen Karl from Maryland has an international radio show and he's coming with Donna Cunningham.  I'd sure like to get these two couples together, not only for incredibly good vocal renditions of 'real-deal' country music, but also because they are all four world travelers keeping America's 'real-deal' country music alive on planet earth everywhere they go.  Anyone can see what this album is all about by simply looking at the list of great songs on it.  Not just traditional country music, but the first song out of the chute is a great old-time bluegrass song done by many of the best in that genre of music.  This CD goes immediately to the Rural Roots Music Commission for their consideration.  It is my sincere hope that Annette and Kim join the likes of Mickey Gilley, Barbara Fairchild, and Lulu Roman in receiving recognition for their incredibly sensitive recordings of American 'real-deal' country music.

ANGEL MARY AND THE TENNESSEE WEREWOLVES SHOOT FOLSOM PRISON BLUES MUSIC VIDEO


Angel Mary and the Tennessee Werewolves members Angel Mary, Christian Wolf, and Antoine Wolf shoot scenes for their Folsom Prison Blues music video in outlaw Jesse James' infamous cave hideout.
ANGEL MARY AND THE TENNESSEE WEREWOLVES SHOOT FOLSOM PRISON BLUES MUSIC VIDEO WITH ALL-STAR CAST

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 9th, 2013) - Having officially released latest single Folsom Prison Blues to radio on July 30th, rocking country family trio Angel Mary and the Tennessee Werewolves (AMTW) left no time to waste, shooting the music video for the single August 5th-7th. Not only does the video boast an all-star cast - featuring cameo appearances by William Lee Golden and Chris Golden of The Oakridge Boys, Robert Reynolds of The Mavericks, Doug Phelps of The Kentucky Headhunters, Rob Caggiano of rock group Volbeat, Captain Jack of Renegade Radio Nashville, and famed clothing designer Manuel - but shot at a variety of unique locations, including outlaw Jesse James' infamous cave hideout and Brushy Mountain Prison. The video also acts as a continuation of the video for their debut single Cowboy, picking up where that video left off.

"As a country-rock group, we are honored to have such a talented and diverse group of stars contribute and believe in what we are doing to introduce a whole new generation to such a great, iconic Johnny Cash song," said Antoine Wolf, member of AMTW.

"With such a rich history surrounding Folsom Prison Blues, it was fitting to shoot the video in such historical locations with such great artists," added Christian Wolf. "To be honest, locking some of our idols up in the Brushy Mountain Prison was a whole lot of fun!"

Produced by Cash's son John Carter Cash, the single features Carter Cash on acoustic guitar and Rob Caggiano of rock group Volbeat on electric guitar. Aside from the Cash family's stamp of approval in producer Carter Cash, veteran radio programmer and Country Radio Hall of Fame member Ed Salamon said of the single, "You have done for that song what Elvis did for Bill Monroe's Blue Moon Of Kentucky in Sun Studios many years ago." The trio was also recently featured in Billboard Magazine's article about country music's new sound, describing AMTW as "A rocking country act, ready to turn up the volume..." and "...poised to move up the ladder and the Billboard country charts."

"I really like them a lot because I think they’re outside the box and I think they’re trying to do things just like my dad, Sam Phillips, did with Sun Records," said Jerry Phillips of the trio. "He always said 'if you’re not doing anything different, you’re not doing anything at all'... He was never interested in going down the same old beaten path that everybody else had gone down and I think that’s what these people are doing. They’re taking off through the jungle and hacking their own way through. I’m real impressed with that and I’d much rather see that type of music come back."

I had only been doing The Producer’s Chair for about 9 months and I’d never met Cowboy Jack before, but I knew that Cowboy was at Sun when Rock-n-Roll was born … Think about that for a moment …

The day we did my pre-show interview, I pulled into the parking lot behind Jack’s house and knocked on the kitchen door. Cowboy greeted me in slippers and an old housecoat (that I later learned belonged to Elvis), and with a warm smile, poured me a coffee and walked me into his office. Wow … I could already tell that he was more than happy to share his story with me and that I was overdressed. He graciously asked me all about me before he let me begin my interview, but not before he danced for me. The first words out of Jack’s mouth were; “Would you like to hear what I’m working on?” and before I had a chance to answer, he hit play and proceeded to dance around his office for an entire song, ending with a pose. It was surreal and as I watched him, I think the whole room went into slow motion. My immediate thought was; “this guy’s not bad.” When the song was finished, I clapped and said “very nice Jack” and he reached into the pocket of Elvis’s nightgown and handed me his business card.

Cowboy truly was an instructor with the Arthur Murray dance Studios and he proceeded to tell me the story … and my interview began.

The night of the show, Cowboy showed up in Bermuda shorts, a Hawaiian shirt, no socks and an old pair of loafers. In the middle of a Q&A segment, Janice Malone from the Tennessee Tribune asked Jack what he thought about the music industry today and Cowboy’s response got him a standing ovation. At the end of the show, the writer’s night started and no sooner did the first songwriter get into his song, when Jack grabbed one of my assistants and started dancing. Her expression was priceless. I guess it had been a long time since she danced with a man who knew how to lead. How can you not love a guy like that? You can check out the photos of the show at The Producer’s Chair website.

About 3 months ago, I went down to invite Jack to come back on the show. This time his assistant answered the kitchen door and Cowboy was sitting at the kitchen table wearing that housecoat and slippers and eating a bowl of cereal. He kind of remembered me, but didn’t want to let on and I immediately mentioned his last appearance on the show. With a big smile he said; “Sure” … and he called for his assistant to check his available dates. As she came out of her office, her look told me that Cowboy wasn’t well enough to do the show and I caught it immediately. So we went head and booked it for September. Jack smiled that same warm smile and thanked me for thinking about him and I drove back to my office knowing that would be the last time I got to be with him.

This week, Cowboy Jack passed away at 82 years of age.

I can’t believe that I actually met Cowboy Jack Clement.
What a beautiful guy.
Thank you Lord
Thank you Nashville
