THE BAND PERRY STORMS THE AIRWAVES
 
LOS ANGELES, CA – (Sept. 24, 2013) – Award-winning superstar sibling trio, THE BAND PERRY, took over the airwaves last week, performing their new single “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely” and chatting with Arsenio Hall (click here) and the ladies of The Talk (click here).  They also performed “I’m A Keeper,” off their latest album, PIONEER, on Arsenio. 
 
The Band Perry also performed at the 2nd Annual "Beyond Hunger: A Place At the Table" – a fundraiser to help end world hunger and poverty –honoring Academy Award winning actress Susan Sarandon and hosted by Heifer International.  The band had people on their feet for their entire set and were thrilled to meet Diane Lane, the inspiration behind their song “I’m A Keeper.”  The lyric “I'll join a band and sing like a canary, Get out of here and change my name to Cherry” is a nod to Lane’s character Cherry Valence in the Francis Ford Coppola film adaption of S.E. Hinton’s classic novel, The Outsiders
 
On Saturday September 21st, THE BAND PERRY brought down the house at the iHeartRadio Music Festival Village with their tight 20 minute set under the Las Vegas sun.  The set was stacked with fan favorites and their Number One songs, including:  “Better Dig Two,” “If I Die Young,” “DONE.” and more.  Below are photos from the event.

The Court Yard Hounds Aren’t Just Whistling Dixie

The Court Yard Hounds Aren’t Just Whistling Dixie


By Ken Tucker
© 2013 CMA Close Up® News Service / Country Music Association®, Inc.
Let’s get this out of the way right up front. The Court Yard Hounds, composed of sisters Emily Robison and Martie Maguire, will always be linked to another group they’re a part of — the Dixie Chicks. Formed in 1989 with Laura Lynch and Robin Lynn Macy, they pared down to a trio with lead singer Natalie Maines. In this configuration, they won 10 CMA Awards and dominated Country Music from the late 1990s until 2006, when their ongoing recording hiatus began.
The story behind this hiatus is the stuff of Country Music history. In 2003, Maines uttered now-famous words at a concert in London to express displeasure over the impending second Gulf War: “We do not want this war, this violence, and we’re ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas.”
The furor over that comment ultimately forced the Dixie Chicks to close shop, mostly at the insistence of Maines. Though she officially apologized to the target of her ire, then-President George Bush, she received a death threat, among other negative responses. “Natalie said, ‘I need a break — and a long break,’” Maguire recalled.
After a few years off the road and away from recording cycles, the sisters declared it was time to continue the musical journey they had begun together in their youth. “We didn’t want to put pressure on Natalie,” Maguire said. “We just decided to shift gears.”
Robison and Maguire, who forged their family harmonies and instrumental virtuosity at an early age, released their self-titled Court Yard Hounds in 2010. Their second album, Amelita, followed in July.
Jim Scott, who engineered the most recent Dixie Chicks album, Taking the Long Way, and produced both Court Yard Hounds albums, sees similarities between the two groups. “At no time with either the Dixie Chicks or the Court Yard Hounds did anyone talk about making a hit record, ever,” he said. “They want to be successful. They want to be in the game. They want to sell records for a living. They want to tour for a living. But these aren’t calculating people. These are humble, normal people that want to make great music.”
Of course, there is at least one significant difference. The Dixie Chicks featured Maines on lead vocals, and the sisters share the lead in the Court Yard Hounds. “Natalie has been a lead singer all her life,” Scott observed. “Martie and Emily have not been lead singers all their lives. They’ve been harmony singers. They’ve made only two records as lead singers. They’re still learning how to do that. If you would ask them what their Achilles heel is, they would say that’s it.”
Where their first album was in many ways influenced by Robison’s divorce from singer/songwriter Charlie Robison, Amelita touches on a variety of topics. Like a Lifetime movie, the title cut is inspired by a real-life incident. While shooting the Dixie Chicks video for “Long Time Gone” in the Mexican border town of Reynosa, the sisters noticed that there was a brothel across the street.
“We were naïve,” Maguire admitted. “Someone had to tell us what was going on. It was such a weird thing to be doing this video in this little town and to see that happen right next to you. We realized they were open for business. It just broke my heart.”
Ever hopeful, the sisters wrote the song imagining that the lead character could be rescued from her situation.
Other highlights of Amelita include “Phoebe” (Maguire, Robison and Martin Strayer), an eerie, fiddle-haunted rocker with a suicide theme, and the sarcastically titled single “Sunshine” (Strayer, Robison, Maguire, Jonatha Brooke and Alex Dezen), a portrait of a narcissist. Robison sings lead on most songs, but Maguire takes the spotlight on “A Guy Like You” (Strayer and Maguire). Deciding who will sing lead is easy, according to Maguire. “We always kind of naturally know,” she said. “We don’t fight over anything but clothes.”
Producer Scott says that whether Amelita is a Country record or not depends on the ears of each listener. “We talked about just making the best record that we could and coming up with the best songs,” he said. “We didn’t try to make a Country record. We certainly didn’t make a pop record. But it does kind of rock.”
Scott, whose credits include sessions with Tom Petty, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Wilco, among others, notes that working with moms Maguire and Robison is very different from working with rockers. “You’ve got to work around a mom’s schedule,” he said, with a laugh. “These aren’t rock star dudes that stumble in at noon and can work until 1 a.m. and drink Jack Daniel’s. They have responsibilities. They have to go to soccer games. They have to do drop-off and pick-up. They have work to do — real work.”
The sisters bristle at the suggestion that the Court Yard Hounds are a side project. Even so, they are back onstage with Maines for a series of Canadian dates throughout the remainder of 2013, with another North Country headline tour following in 2014.

Tyler Farr Getting Redneck Crazy

Tyler Farr Getting Redneck Crazy




In some circles it is said that a song finds you. “Redneck Crazy” is that song that found Columbia Nashville recording artist, Tyler Farr. “When I first heard that song, man I thought there hasn’t been a song like that from the guy’s perspective ya know, I knew I had to cut it.”

Farr’s first album “Redneck Crazy” was featured in a invite only event in Nashville and Farr showcased some of the songs. “We are here tonight to party, and play some of songs off my first album, hope you like em!!” Twelve songs pack this release of equal parts greasy southern rock with a touch of soulful country. Each song comes at you from a different angle. If you want drinking songs you’ve got a couple different choices; “Whiskey In My Water,” telling you the story of that one girl that is the perfect mix and keeps you guessing and wondering what’s next. “Ain’t Even Drinkin’” well this lady gets you moving in more directions that rattlesnakes out of a bag. The phrasing an ennui of “Dirty,” is just off centered enough to be a hit. “Wish I had A Boat,” co written with Lee Brice is the “anti truck song,” great smooth melody and flowing lyrics. “Cowgirl,” is right out of the Brooks & Dunn cannon of songs. “Cowgirl” is the ballad and the story of the album. Bringing all facets of a song into one, it speaks to the heart of a love needed to last forever.

“Going into writing for this album, you know it just happened. When you write with Rhett(Akins), Dallas(Davidson) and Ben(Hayslip), we connected so well because we write about the same things and have the same interests. Rhett is just a cut up and doesn’t take it all that serious, but comes up with some great lyrics, such a great bunch of guys to write with.”

“I want to be the guy to be remembered as an entertainer and for my songs to relate to how and where I’m at during that point of time. Redneck Crazy really shows that. Loved making this record and picking out these or co writing these songs.” “In my live shows I really want to take Hank Jr. to the next level, everything I don’t I want to sound different every time out. If I quit getting goosebumps I’ll quit doing this.”

“The nature of this genre is never ending. It may not sound like a country song, but man the lyrics are completely country. “Boys Round Here” may not sound like a country song but it is as country song as it gets with chew tobacco, chew tobacco spit, crazy but genius.”

With no apologies, Tyler Farr is coming at you full blast, and that’s good. If you don’t look out you as well will go “Redneck Crazy!”

TOBY KEITH DEBUT AUSTRALIAN ARENA TOUR IN 2014

TOBY KEITH
DEBUT AUSTRALIAN ARENA TOUR IN 2014

 

For release - Tuesday, 24 September, 2013:Rob Potts Entertainment Edge, Chugg Entertainment and Foxtel's Country Music Channel (CMC)are thrilled to announce that American superstar TOBY KEITH will be making his first ever concert appearances in Australia in 2014, bringing his Hammer Down Under Tour to Australia for a series of massive arena concerts next March. Keith will also headline the 2014 CMC Rocks the Hunter festival at the Hope Estate in NSW's beautiful Hunter Valley.

Joining Keith on the tour will be special guest international stars ELI YOUNG BAND (USA) and KELLIE PICKLER (USA).

CEO of Entertainment Edge, Rob Potts said, "The Outlaws of country music have always been huge with Aussie fans. No surprise this country started out as a convict settlement. So we know why the fans are so excited about Toby's first ever tour here. They love his larrikin outlaw attitude and the fact that he doesn't take himself too seriously. We're super excited to have him touring in March and know the fans will go wild when he rolls out his incredible catalogue of hits. It's also terrific to welcome back Eli Young Band and to have Kellie Pickler on her first visit down under."  

Executive Chairman of Chugg Entertainment, Michael Chugg said, "Toby Keith is one of the biggest artists in modern country music. We've been hearing about his rowdy, rockin' live show in this country for many years. One of the biggest songwriters in any genre, Aussie audiences have really connected with his irreverent humour. We still think "he's as good as he once was"- and with three international heavyweights on one bill, this is going to be the country tour of the year -  my mate Jimmy Buffett said he is not to be missed!"

Singer/songwriter TOBY KEITH is one of the most consistently successful artists in country music history, with over 35 million album sales and 31 US No. 1 singles in two decades of recording, including Should've Been A Cowboy, How Do You Like Me Now?!, Beer For My Horses, I Love This Bar, As Good As I Once Was and Red Solo Cup. Winner of multiple CMA, ACM and American Music Awards, the Billboard Country Artist of the Decade is renowned throughout the globe for his swaggering party songs, soulful ballads and rowdy, high-energy live performances.  Toby will also be performing songs from his new album, Drinks After Work, which will be released in Australia on 1 November, 2013.

The ELI YOUNG BAND honed their skills as an Eagles-esque live force in the Texas Red Dirt scene, building up an enviable fan following, before breaking into the mainstream country scene with their album, Level, in 2005. The Southern quartet blew us away in 2012 on their first trip down under and they've since moved into an even higher gear, with hits including the monster smash Crazy Girl, Even If It Breaks Your Heart and their latest release, Drunk Last Night.

Since rocketing to fame on American Idol, KELLIE PICKLER has been charming the public with her inimitable twang, cheeky charisma and powerful country pipes. Her hits include Red High Heels, I Wonder, Don't You Know You're Beautiful and Best Days of Your Life, and she has run the gamut from soul-baring vulnerability to girl power anthems and she constantly reaches for more honest, powerful and dynamic ways to tell her story. The CMT Music Award winner and ACM and CMA nominee, Pickler has also triumphed on television, as the 2013 winner of the USDancing with the Stars.
