CD: DON & CONNIE HOUSE - For God and Country



DON & CONNIE HOUSE
For God and Country
 
After Texas - One Day At A Time - Look At Me - Far Side Banks of Jordan - America The Beautiful - Soldier's Last Letter - The Strangest Dream - God Bless America Again - Texas Memories - God Bless America
 
Where do you go, after Texas?  What a nice CD to hear just before we leave Texas and head back to Iowa.  Connie House is a good songwriter.  She's equally a super nice singer.  Backing band is super good too.  I like the light touch of the drums, it doesn't offend, nor does it take away from the other instruments.  Sounds like a double electric lead on most of the songs, and it does sound good.  Bass is just right, matches with Connie's fine voice.  Liked the additional harmony on "One Day At A Time."  Don House's version of Terry Smith's "Far Side Banks of Jordan" puts him somewhat beneath Connie in vocal ability.   Still, the song is meant for the elderly as they begin to review what life might be like without their mate.  Connie has three very distinct and very well done songs about America on this CD.  "America The Beautiful" "God Bless America Again" and "God Bless America," all three done amazingly well.  According to the liner notes on the CD the last song was listed as "Texas Memories" by Don House, but it is actually second to last, the last song being Connie's beautiful version of "God Bless America."  The House's make their home in Boston, Massachusetts, (when they are not in Arizona), and were our Gospel Stage's Host and Hostess last year in LeMars. We are all hoping they can return and do it all again.  I want to hear more of Connie on that Gospel stage.  We're trying to put together a 'Boston Show' for Connie, and I'm still finagling for more artists from Massachusetts.  Good CD House's, good enough to go to the Rural Roots Music Commission, and see what they think.  Thanks for sending it.  If you are interested in buying this delightful CD, please telephone them at 928-758-8792.

The chart-topping vocalist brought his high-energy show and the warm weather fun to packed arenas in Brookings, SD (3/20), Fargo, ND (3/21) and Bemidji, MN (3/22).
 
Igniting the feel-good atmosphere were tiki bars overflowing with fans flanking the stage and a nautical themed set. Following the tour’s opening night, The Brookings Register notes “he puts on one heck of a beach party.”
 
The huge party will continue as the 55-city plus tour goes through October and wraps in Jake’s hometown of Vero Beach, FL. The sizzling run also stars the Eli Young Band* along with Parmalee*, Thomas Rhett* and The Cadillac Three. (*select dates).
 
Jake’s current single “Beachin’” is quickly climbing the Country Radio charts and is from his latest RCA Nashville album DAYS OF GOLD. The party anthem is the follow-up to the vivacious “Days of Gold.”
 
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.”

Cowgirls ‘N Angels 2

Country Artist Amber Hayes Returns To The Big Screen In Cowgirls ‘N Angels 2: Dakota’s Summer
 
Releases Music Video To "Cotton Eyed Joe"

(Nashville, Tenn. – March 24, 2014) – Country artist Amber Hayes makes her return to the big screen in the Cowgirls ‘N Angels sequel, Cowgirls ‘N Angels 2: Dakota’s Summer.

Hayes makes a cameo appearance in the film and performs the classic tune, “Cotton Eyed Joe,” which is featured on the soundtrack along with her song “Home.”  Both tracks can now be purchased on iTunes, Amazon and other major digital retailers. 

Hayes has also released a music video to “Cotton Eyed Joe,” which is now available for viewing. Nashville-based producer, Charlie Kelley produced and co-wrote the new rendition of the track, “Cotton Eyed Joe.”

“I am so honored to have been asked to record one of Country music’s most recognized dance songs, ‘Cotton Eyed Joe,’ for Dakota’s Summer," said Hayes.  "The track is very different from what my fans might expect from me, but I suspect that they will enjoy our twist on the track.  I’m thrilled with the music video and can’t wait for the release of this wonderful, family film.”

Cowgirls ‘N Angels 2: Dakota’s Summer will premiere at the 2014 Dallas International Film Festival in April.  The film will be available digitally on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and other major digital retailers on April 1 and released April 15 on Blu-Ray and DVD through Wal-Mart.  The official trailer for the movie is available on iTunes and can be viewed here.

In the movie, Oscar® Winner Keith Carradine (Cowboys & Aliens) stars alongside a young, popular cast that includes Haley Ramm (X-Men: The Last Stand), Jade Pettyjohn (American Girl: McKenna Shoots for the Stars), and Emily Bett Rickards (Arrow) in this inspiring second chapter of the beloved Cowgirls ’N Angels story. After she receives unexpected news about herself, a 17-year-old girl (Ramm) experiences an exciting, yet challenging life in and out of the rodeo circuit in this wonderful coming-of-age story. Filled with heart, horses and high-reaching adventure, Cowgirls ’N Angels 2: Dakota’s Summer is an uplifting reminder that with courage, friendship and passion, anything is possible.


An accomplished theater performer, Hayes’ break in Nashville came during her role as Kathy Twitty in the Conway Twitty production, It’s Only Make Believe.
 
Hayes then made her film debut in the major motion picture Cowgirls ‘N Angels. Hayes is credited for three songs on the soundtrack, including her duet with Lonestar’s Richie McDonald, “Always There For Me."

Hayes was also featured in the 2013 documentary Music City U.S.A., which took home the Golden Drover for Best Feature Documentary at the 2014 Trail Dance Film Festival.
