CHRIS STAPLETON SET TO PERFORM WITH LUKE BRYAN


CHRIS STAPLETON SET TO PERFORM WITH LUKE BRYAN ON THE 47TH ANNUAL CMA AWARDS
 
Nashville, TN- Nov. 5, 2013- Mercury recording artist and soul shaking vocalist Chris Stapleton will perform "Drink A Beer" with Luke Bryan on the 47th Annual CMA Awards on Wed., Nov. 6th on ABC.  Stapleton penned the song along with Jim Beavers, and he also provides vocals on the track found on Bryan's recently released Platinum certified album "Crash My Party."  Stapleton is currently putting the finishing touches on his solo country debut for Mercury.

"It's always amazing to get the news that one of your songs is going to be cut by another artist, and I've been really lucky to have some success with that over the years," said Stapleton.  "Luke asked me to sing on the track for his new album, and we've performed it live together, but I'm especially honored he asked me to stand up there with him on the CMA's on Wednesday night."

A native of the small town of Paintsville, KY and son of a coal miner, Stapleton made the move to Nashville in 2001 to learn the craft of songwriting and pursue a career in music.  A decade later, he has scored No. one country hits with songs penned for superstars including George Strait and Kenny Chesney, and he's racked up over 170 album cuts. Stapleton has already had a diverse singing career that includes stints as lead vocalist for GRAMMY-nominated bluegrass band The SteelDrivers and lead vocalist in the howling rock and roll band The Jompson Brothers.

Japan’s Country Gold Festival

Japan’s Country Gold Festival Celebrates 25th Anniversary

Organizer Charlie Nagatani was honored for his Country music
accomplishments at the event on Oct. 20

(Nashville, Tenn. – Nov. 5, 2013) - The International Country Music Festival, Country Gold, recently celebrated its 25th anniversary event. The Japanese festival has gained a reputation as the biggest Country music festival in the Far East.
Organized by Charlie Nagatani, the event took place Oct. 20 and included performances by Aaron Tippin, Daryle Singletary, Anita Cochran, Robyn Young, and Charlie Nagatani and The Cannonballs. Over the years, many great Country acts have performed at the annual Country Gold event, including Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley, Alison Krauss and the Charlie Daniel’s Band.
The performances took place at the Aspecta amphitheater, which is regarded as one of the world’s most beautiful outdoor venues. Set at the base of Mt. Aso, an active volcano in Kumamoto, Prefecture, Country Gold drew more than 10,000  attendees, a 25% increase from the 2012 numbers.
"Country Gold holds a special place in my heart because it's the very first festival I helped establish from the ground up,” said Judy Seale of JSI, Inc. who serves as Talent Coordinator for the event. “It's hard to believe this year marked 25 successful years for the event. One of the biggest changes we have noticed in recent years is a much younger audience, which is a very exciting thing to see.”
As well as organizing the festival, Nagatani visits Nashville annually with a tour group from Japan. Nagatani has performed on the Grand Ole Opry stage 23 times and has been an active advocate of Country music for more than 60 years.
During the festival, Nagatani was honored for his dedication to Country music over the years. He was given three certificates of appreciation from the Mayor of Nashville, the Country Music Association and the Grand Ole Opry. The Academy of Country Music and the state of Tennessee House of Representatives also acknowledged him with commendation letters.
In addition to the devoted Country music fans at the concert, there were important political delegates in attendance, including Richard Mei (Cultural Affairs Officer at the U.S. Embassy), Margaret MacLeod (Consul for Public Affairs Director, Fukuoka American Center at the U.S. Consulate), and Governor Ikuo Kabashima.                        


 The artists who participated in the event helped present Nagatani with his certificates of appreciation.

HIGH VALLEY OFFER SNEAK PEEK

HIGH VALLEY OFFER SNEAK PEEK AT UPCOMING EP
VIA STAGEIT SHOW TO BENEFIT CITY OF HOPE
Nashville, TN…(November 5, 2013)… Whether attributed to genetics or singing together since birth, there is something remarkable about the vocal perfection of three brothers singing together in flawless harmony. Country music trio HIGH VALLEY is a prime example of this sonic phenomenon as Brad, Bryan and Curtis’s voices meld seamlessly on their stateside debut EP, Rescue You, set to release digitally on November 19.

High Valley will offer fans a sneak peek at their upcoming EP via a live acoustic performance and Q&A on Stageit THIS Friday, November 8 at 6pm central. All tips from the show will benefit breast cancer care and research at City of Hope. Get your ticket HERE for this online concert.

“After our Mom's battle with breast cancer, it was an obvious decision for us to partner with City of Hope to help raise money for the cause with our online Stageit show,” shares High Valley lead singer Brad Rempel.

Brothers Brad (lead vocals, acoustic guitar), Bryan (harmony vocals, bass guitar) and Curtis (harmony vocals, mandolin), all in their twenties, make up High Valley. The sibling trio initially found inspiration in the music of country music icons Alabama, Rascal Flatts, Diamond Rio and Shenandoah while growing up listening to their older sisters’ records. After sixteen years of touring and opening for the likes of superstars Little Big Town, Alan Jackson, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and Reba McEntire in their northern homeland, Canadian CMA Awards reigning Interactive Artist of the Year winners High Valley are preparing to make their U.S. debut with the release of their EP Rescue You on November 19, wherever digital music is sold!
