DIERKS BENTLEY ON THE SEASON FINALE OF AMERICA’S GOT TALENT


DIERKS BENTLEY TO PERFORM “I HOLD ON” ON THE SEASON FINALE OF AMERICA’S GOT TALENT TOMORROW ON NBC


Nashville, TN – Sept. 17, 2013 – Award winning singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley will perform his new single “I Hold On” on the season finale of NBC’s hit show America’s Got Talent live tomorrow at 9:00P ET on NBC.

“I Hold On” is the lead single off Bentley’s upcoming seventh studio album RISER. MusicRow recently chose the track as “a song that shakes you” while USA Today likens it to Cash’s “I Walk The Line,” “’I Hold On’ echoes the closely held faith and steely determination of the Johnny Cash classic.”

Tonight, Bentley will perform and help induct Old Crow Medicine Show into the Grand Ole Opry before his visit to New York City for the America’s Got Talent taping. From New York, Bentley will head to Atlanta for the Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley: Locked & Reloaded Tour on Thursday night with additional dates scheduled this weekend in Tampa, FL (9/20) and West Palm Beach, FL (9/21)

Taylor Swift Sees Red and Stays Country


Taylor Swift Sees Red and Stays Country
By Kip Kirby
© 2013 CMA Close Up® News Service / Country Music Association®, Inc.
In just seven years, Taylor Swift has become a household name and a global phenomenon. She has won CMA’s Entertainer of the Year twice (2009 and 2011), been named Billboard’s Top Artist of the Year (2013) and taken home Album of the Year honors at the 2010 Grammy Awards – the youngest artist and the first female solo Country artist ever to do so. (Her Grammy total stands at seven, her CMA Awards at six.) Time has named her one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World.” Rolling Stone has featured her twice on its cover. She writes or co-writes all her songs, has topped multi-genre radio airplay and digital download charts around the world and appeared in Hollywood films and hit television shows. She runs 13 Management, and is involved in every component of her publishing, recording, concert production and endorsement deals.
She’s also just 23 years old — and having the time of her life. Whether sharing the stage with Tim McGraw and Keith Urban on “Highway Don’t Care” at this year’s CMA Music Festival, playing for 80,000 screaming fans at London’s Wembley Stadium or harmonizing onstage with Mick Jagger at a June Rolling Stones concert in Chicago, Swift sees her success as an opportunity to promote Nashville and the music she loves. In fact, that’s one of the reasons she makes overseas touring a priority.
“Going outside of your comfort zone geographically is not an easy thing, you know,” she explained during a break in a typically busy day. “It’s something a lot of artists don’t like to do. You can be at one stage of your career in America and then have to start over in another territory. But we started doing that about five years ago, and I’m so thankful we did because now we can go over there, and we play arenas in Europe and we play stadiums in Australia. It’s been amazing to see how my music has thankfully worked in Europe and Asia and the places we’ve gone and that we’ve gone out of our way to go. It’s amazing to look out into a sold-out crowd of people who don’t speak English yet they’re singing along to every word of your songs. The fact that it’s paid off in that way makes me so proud to be from Nashville. It’s an investment I’m so happy we made.”
Swift also sees evidence of Country Music’s international reach much closer to her Nashville home. “Last time I was at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, I noticed that almost everyone walking through was from Europe or Australia or New Zealand,” she said. “And that made me so happy. It makes me so proud to see people in other countries curious about Nashville and singer/songwriter music and Country Music.”
She’ll see many more very soon. In November, “The RED Tour” heads to Australia and New Zealand, where she will become the first solo female artist in 20 years to headline stadium dates there. Taking the risk to play stadiums whenever possible, rather than multi-night arena dates, was a calculated decision.
“Taylor is an incredibly important client of The Messina Group, one of our subsidiaries,” said Randy Phillips, President and CEO, AEG Live, which handles Swift’s domestic and overseas concert promotions. “And she’s an anomaly, because selling out stadiums is not an easy thing to do. She’s one of the very few who can do it successfully in multiple markets. The demand for Taylor is absolutely coming from the fans, and you cannot fake demand. It’s either there or it isn’t. Her audience wants to see her, and they don’t mind going to a stadium to do it.
“She’s the ultimate hyphenate,” he continued. “She genre-crosses like no other artist. She wants to experiment and look at different markets. Obviously her roots are Country, but her success is crossing over into pop. No artist in Country Music has managed to break internationally the way Taylor has in so many markets. She’s unique. If you want to call her an ambassador for Nashville, then she’s certainly the first real international ambassador Nashville’s ever had. That’s a huge statement for Country Music.
“Her connection with the audience is incredible,” Phillips summed up. “Very few performers can achieve that thing where the wall between them and the audience disappears. But she’s one of them. That’s an important part of the story, that at this stage of her career, Taylor is able to sell out stadiums. Who would have predicted that just six years ago?”
Share this with Swift, and she will agree. “I’ve been really lucky with my other tours,” she allowed. “But being on this tour, the screaming and passion level with the fans has hit a fever pitch. My fans have always been amazing and emotional, but this is something completely new for me. It’s more than it’s ever been before. Every single night when I’m about to get on the elevator lift and walk out onstage, it’s a feeling of, ‘I can’t wait to get out there and do my job.’ I’ve always known I wanted to work constantly until I could make a career in music, but even when I dreamed about having a career in music, I don’t think I ever envisioned the crowds being larger than theaters or possibly arenas.
“In my wildest dreams, I don’t think I ever saw anything like this.”

THE OAK RIDGE BOYS ANNOUNCE 2013 CHRISTMAS TIME'S-A-COMIN' TOUR


  THE OAK RIDGE BOYS ANNOUNCE 2013 CHRISTMAS TIME'S-A-COMIN' TOUR

Legendary award-winning, hit-making group celebrate 24th Anniversary of Christmas Tour

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (September 16, 2013)– Grammy Award-winning music legends The Oak Ridge Boys will celebrate their 24th Anniversary of their annual Christmas Tour in 2013 with a festive show featuring live performances of holiday classics and their biggest hits.  Additionally, Richard Sterban, Duane Allen, William Lee Golden, and Joe Bonsall are celebrating the 40th Anniversary of The Oak Ridge Boys.  The Oak Ridge Boys came together in 1973, beginning as gospel singers, became a top act in country music and then crossed over to pop with the monster hit “Elvira” in 1981.  The song became their fourth No. 1 country hit, reached No. 5 on the pop charts, won the group a Grammy® award and went on to become one of only a handful of singles released out of Nashville ever to go double platinum.  The Oak Ridge Boys recently became members of the Grand Ole Opry®.

The Oak Ridge Boys are known for creating a show atmosphere of holiday cheer with their Christmas tour, which consistently receives rave reviews and has become a holiday tradition in its own right since its start 24 years ago.  The masterful blends of new and traditional yuletide tunes are enhanced by the powerhouse group’s renowned four-part harmonies.

“Christmas is my favorite time of the year. The Oak Ridge Boys get to take our Christmas tour all over the USA, sharing joy, happiness, gifts, families getting together, and, of course, the story of the birth of Jesus Christ. Our Christmas shows are the highlight of our year,” says Oak Ridge Boy Duane Allen.

The Oak Ridge Boys will be filling the holiday season with the celebrated sounds of their Christmas Time’s A-Coming CD (Gaither Gospel Series). The album was released to retail outlets in 2012, with an exclusive version of the CD available at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store®, featuring two heartwarming bonus tracks that capture the meaning of the season. The Christmas Time’s A-Coming album marks the Oaks’ sixth holiday CD.

“Our 40th Anniversary tour dates are turning into celebrations everywhere we go. We have chosen a busy schedule so we can say ‘thank you’ to the many promoters, radio stations, fairs, festivals, and our wonderful fans who have all supported us for so many years. We hope everyone will come on out and celebrate with us,” adds Allen.

Grammy-award winning Kenny Rogers continues his brilliant creativity with his new album You Can’t Make Old Friends set for release on October 8th. Being the first country album since Water & Bridges in 2006 he stretches his artistry into new musical territory.

This fall and winter, Rogers’ tour will roll on with more U.S. and Canadian dates, including the Christmas & Hits Through The Years Tour, his annual holiday performances, in late November and December.  In addition, a novel Rogers co-wrote with Mike Blakely, What Are The Chances, is being released today (September 3rd) and Rogers’ New York Times Best Selling autobiography, Luck Or Something Like It, will be released in paperback on September 27th.
