NASHVILLE, Tenn (Feb. 4, 2014) — Music virtuoso John Jorgenson, known for his blistering guitar licks and mastery of a broad musical palette, has earned a reputation as a world-class musician and guitarist — having collaborated with the likes of Elton John, Luciano Pavarotti, Bonnie Raitt, Bob Dylan and more. Regularly featured on acoustic and electric guitar, mandolin, bouzouki, clarinet, the saxophone, pedal steel, and vocals, Jorgenson has garnered recognition for contributing to numerous platinum-selling and GRAMMY Award-winning albums. Currently, the skillful multi-instrumentalist is heading into the studio with the John Jorgenson Bluegrass Band, his latest collaboration, featuring four legendary musicians: Jorgenson on guitar, mandolin and vocals; ace bluegrass/folk songwriter/vocalist/arranger Herb Pedersen (The Dillards, Old And In The Way, Earl Scruggs) on banjo, guitar and vocals; CMA Song of the Year songwriter Jon Randall (Emmylou Harris’ Nash Ramblers) on guitar and vocals; and highly sought after bluegrass veteran Mark Fain (Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder) on bass to record their first music together as a group.
The band will be recording new material at Sheryl Crow’s studio in Nashville, Tennessee, in early February. Their debut album is currently slated for release in August 2014, surrounding the 10th Annual Guitar Town Festival, where Jorgenson is “de-facto” creative director and plays a major role in handpicking some of the world’s most talented virtuoso guitarists to perform at the annual event.This is a highly anticipated debut effort from the four all-stars, who have been touring as a group since last July. Barry Mazor of Engine145.com/Wall Street Journal proclaims, “As their early shows are making excitingly clear to anyone who wouldn't already count on it, just hearing the line-up of artists involved, the new John Jorgenson Bluegrass Band combines an extraordinary amount of top caliber talent in one place, instrumental and vocal aces and hit-writing songwriters deeply experienced not only in bluegrass, but in hardcore country, rock and jazz, with a deep combined songbook to draw on and take off from at will—which they do."
In addition to recording their first album as a group, the John Jorgenson Bluegrass Band is preparing for several major tour dates this year, including a tour of Norway and the UK, performances at the annual RockyGrass Festival in Lyons, Colorado; and headlining the Guitar Town Festival in Copper Mountain, Colorado. The John Jorgenson Bluegrass Band made its Grand Ole Opry debut last October.

NASHVILLE, TN - (February 4, 2014) – Chart-topping vocalist Jake Owen is bringing the heat on his new party anthem “Beachin’” from his latest RCA Nashville album DAYS OF GOLD. The fun loving song is the follow-up to the vivacious “Days of Gold” and hit country radio yesterday (2/3) with an impressive 67 first week stations on board.
 
Getting in the warm weather spirit, the music video made its debut across CMT last week. Watch the video here via CMT.com. Directed by Mason Dixon, the video was shot at Daytona Beach, FL and captures the laid back vibe of the song.
 
This spring, the beach party will continue as Jake launches his second major nationwide headline run – JAKE OWEN’S DAYS OF GOLD TOUR 2014. The 55-city plus tour also stars Eli Young Band* along with Parmalee*, Thomas Rhett* and The Cadillac Three. (*select dates)
 
Since releasing the chart-topping album, BAREFOOT BLUE JEAN NIGHT, Jake has emerged as one of country music’s leading vocalists. The gold-certified RCA Nashville project delivered four consecutive No. 1 hit singles, including the multi-week chart-toppers; the DOUBLE PLATINUM title track and PLATINUM “Alone with You,” and GOLD-certified hits “The One That Got Away” and “Anywhere with You.” His energetic live show and captivating songs have landed him coveted opening slots with Jason Aldean, Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw and his first headlining tour, CMT ON TOUR JAKE OWEN: THE SUMMER NEVER ENDS2012, which made CMT history for the most sold-out shows in a row for the annual nationwide tour. Recently, Jake took the stage for the big Super Bowl festivities and performed at the Pepsi Party at the Bud Light Hotel in New York City.

SHERRY LYNN AND HER BEAUTIFUL LIFE

Country Songstress SHERRY LYNN To Release
A BEAUTIFUL LIFE March 11

New CD Features Hit Duet With Country Legend Crystal Gayle
Nashville, TN (February 4, 2014) - Country songstress SHERRY LYNN is set to release her sophomore CD, A BEAUTIFUL LIFE, on March 11 under the Steal Heart Music imprint.   The disc contains the New Jersey native's current chart-active single, the anthemic "Girls Will Be Girls," which hit radio programmers' desks via Play MPE and CDX last month.  Penned by hit-makers Ashley Gorley, Bryan Simpson and Kelley Lovelace, the rowdy recap of modern femininity has already inspired a line dance by choreographers Bob and Marlene Peyre-Ferry.  The album, produced by Ted Hewitt, also features Lynn's recent hit with Country legend Crystal Gayle.  The duet, written by award-winning tunesmith Danny Wells ("Check Yes Or No," "These Days"), Jose Luis Pagan and Sarah Lenore, is the project's title track and the song Lynn performed on her Grand Ole Opry debut with Crystal.  
   
The 10-track collection includes Lynn's previous hit single, "What A Day To Shake A Heartache," written by Kalii Palmer / Ronnie Kimball / Sandy Ramos.  The fan favorite is another up-tempo pleaser; a vibrant, driving track topped with Sherry's signature powerhouse voice.   Also drawing the attention of fans and industry veterans is the story-based mid-tempo "Slip Into Something Mexico."  Fiddle riffs deftly interplay with Lynn's poignant vocal and bring a shine to the Joe Lickteig / Mike Lane / Tamika Tyler composition.  With its tale of "big city" dreams, the grittier "So Much More" could be the story of Sherry's life - and she nails the Dave Tough / Justin Busch number with conviction and commitment. 
  
This "small town" girl has definitely made it to the big time.  In 2013, she not only made her Grand Ole Opry debut but entertained crowds at the CMA Music Festival as well.  "Last year was huge for me," notes the vivacious brunette.  "I played more shows at more prestigious venues, and the early response to the new music is exciting.  I'm eager to see what 2014 brings."
  
ABOUT SHERRY
Born in Woodbury, New Jersey and now splitting her time between Sewell, NJ and Nashville, TN, Sherry began her career in 2006 when she opened for Sammy Kershaw at Pitman, New Jersey's historic Broadway Theatre.  Since then, she has released two CDs, a Christmas EP and has gone on to share the stage with Miranda Lambert, Crystal Gayle, the Oak Ridge Boys, LeAnn Rimes, Randy Houser, Gene Watson, John Rich, Chris Young and more.

Track Listing:
I Like 'Em Like That
Girls Will Be Girls
Slip Into Something Mexico
What A Day To Shake A Heartache 
You In A Song
So Much More
What Are You Running From
Fallin' In Love
I Could Get Used To This
Beautiful Life (w/Crystal Gayle)

Katie Armiger Earns the No.3 Spot On GAC's Top 20 Countdown



Katie Armiger Earns the No.3 Spot On GAC's Top 20 Countdown 

Music Video for "Safe" Goes Viral--Added to SoulPancake 

Katie Armiger's music video for "Safe" makes a big debut entering the charts at No. 3 on GAC's Top 20 Country Countdown. The fan-voted video countdown premieres every Friday on the network at 8/7c.

"This is so amazing," says Armiger. "This song and video hold a special meaning to me and I am so thankful for my amazing fans for voting and bringing awareness to our nation's first responders."

Katie Armiger has dedicated her single, "Safe," from her chart-topping album Fall Into Me, to our nation’s first responders and has created a supporting campaign, Project Feel Safe, to honor the brave men and women who keep us safe.   Katie partnered with famed viral video director Justin Baldoni and the Long Beach Fire Department to create a dramatic music video depicting the sacrifices of our first responders and the families who love them. The lead actor, Travis Van Winkle (Transformers, Friday the 13th, Hart of Dixie,) plays the role of the fire fighter and Katie’s love interest/fiancé.

The music video has gone viral, with over 820k views in less than three-weeks on the rising country star's YouTube account. SoulPancake, a leading catalyst for interactions around life’s big questions—topics such as art, philosophy, creativity, and spirituality, recently picked up the video and posted on their sites.

Recently featured on national news outlets such as HLN "News Now" and FOX & Friends, Armiger's message of gratitude to our firemen and first responders is spreading across the nation.  Her single, "Safe," has been recently been released to country radio and is also available on iTunes.

Throughout 2014 Katie Armiger will continue the Project Feel Safe Tour, visiting fire stations across the country and personally thanking first responders and their families.  Their heroic personal stories from this tour will be shared on the Project Feel Safe campaign’s website at www.YouMakeMeFeelSafe.com

STEVE WARINER ASKS FANS TO HELP


STEVE WARINER ASKS FANS TO HELP CHOOSE SONGS FOR HIS CONCERT SET-LIST FOR THIS YEAR'S TOUR DATES
  Voting Begins Today (Feb. 3) and Runs Through Feb. 28 at SteveWariner.com
Wariner Discusses Ten Essential Guitar Albums at MusicRadar.com

Four-time GRAMMY Award winner Steve Wariner will be hitting the road once again in April, promoting his recently released album, It Ain’t All Bad. For an artist who has achieved 14 No. 1 hits and nearly three dozen Top Ten hits, creating a concert set-list can be quite the task. This year, Wariner is asking his fans to help choose the songs that he will perform on tour.

“I’m always hearing from my fans that they loved all the songs I performed in concert, but they wish I had performed one particular song or another,” said Wariner. “I want to give them a voice in this year’s set list, and hopefully their song will make the cut. I can’t wait to see what they choose!”  

With more than 50 hit singles to his credit, Wariner has a large selection of songs for his fans to choose from. In addition, he has written or co-written several hits for other artists, including “Longneck Bottle” for Garth Brooks, “Nothin’ But the Taillights” for Clint Black, “One Small Miracle” for Bryan White, and “Where the Blacktop Ends” for Keith Urban (among others), so fans may choose to vote for those songs as well. 

Voting begins today, Monday, Feb. 3, and will continue through Friday, Feb. 28, 2014. To vote, fans should visit www.SteveWariner.com, go to the “Contact” section, fill out the form, and vote for up to five songs in the body of their message. Only one vote per e-mail address will be allowed. No votes will be accepted after midnight/central time on Feb. 28. A list of Wariner’s hit singles and songwriting credits can be found on the website in the “About Steve” section. 

“Of course, I’ll also perform several songs from my new CD, It Ain’t All Bad, as well as an instrumental or two,” continued Wariner. “And since Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, the Del McCoury Band, Peter Tork, and Don Williams have all recently recorded my songs, I might occasionally perform my versions of those songs as well. I am really excited to create this set-list based on what I hear from the fans!”

The following concerts are the first to be on sale, with more dates to be announced soon:
04/05/2014: Schroeder Dance Hall (Goliad, TX)
04/26/2014: The Grand Theatre (Cartersville, GA) - acoustic show
