Sparta, TN (October 16, 2014)—Bluegrass and Country music legend, Lester Flatt, was honored in his hometown of Sparta, Tennessee recently when city and county officials joined forces to unveil an historical marker in his honor during Sparta's annual event, Liberty Square: A Lester Flatt Celebration
 
Plans for the marker began nearly 18 months ago when Sparta residents, Blake and Kimberly Williams presented the idea at a White County Commissioners meeting to have a marker placed at Oaklawn Cemetery where Flatt is buried. "Lester was a very humble man and when he passed away, he didn't want a lot of attention," explains Blake Williams, who is a former member of Flatt's band, the Nashville Grass, and was also a pallbearer at Flatt's funeral. "Kimberly and I have talked to many people who worked with Lester over the years and also to his family, and we've all felt the same way—that we wanted to do something in his honor. Since he would have been 100 years old in June of this year, it just made sense to do it now."
 
The commissioners agreed and voted unanimously to pass the budget for the marker. Sparta's Mayor, Jeff Young, was at the meeting and without hesitation volunteered to pay for half the cost and offered any assistance needed to see the project through. "With the green light from both city and county officials in place, Kimberly began the legwork that involved working with the officials, tasking music journalist Barry Mazor, with the text for the marker and enlisting the help of W.D. Stone & Associates on a design."
 
The historical marker was unveiled during the city's annual event, named for Flatt, on Saturday, October 11th. "We've been producing 'Liberty Square: A Lester Flatt Celebration' for well over a decade now and were thrilled to be able to commemorate Lester Flatt's 100 years in bluegrass with this marker and some very special guests," states Sparta Mayor, Jeff Young. The 45-minute ceremony included a special music presentation by Blake Williams who enlisted the help of another Nashville Grass alumni, Roland White, as well as Michael Cleveland, Wayne Southards, Dwayne Anderson and a guest appearance by Darin Aldridge. Tennessee State Representative Paul Bailey presented a proclamation on behalf of the State of Tennessee honoring Flatt's contributions to bluegrass and country music and Kyle Cantrell, former Grand Ole Opry announcer and current program director for SiriusXM Bluegrass Junction, spoke on Flatt's impact on him personally and professionally. In attendance and recognized during the ceremony were Flatt's granddaughter Tammy Brumfield and her husband Mike;  Don Clark, owner of the Bluegrass Bus Museum;  Danny Clark, an International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Board member; Joe Lurgio, IBMA staff member; Ashlee-Jean Trott, associate producer of Music City Roots; Ray Seckler representing his father Curly Seckler; and White County Executive Denny Wayne Robinson.
 
The historical marker will be placed at Oaklawn Cemetery located on Hwy 70 just outside of Sparta, TN in the next few weeks.

Thomas Rhett Steps Up as Direct Support on Florida Georgia Line’s ANYTHING GOES TOUR 2015
 
Nashville, TN – Oct. 16, 2014 – In the race for CMA's New Artist of the Year award, first-time nominee Thomas Rhett will head to NASCAR’s most competitive track on Saturday to headline Fred’s 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series post-race concert at Talladega Superspeedway (10/18).

"Talladega is one of those iconic places that you grow up knowing about, whether you follow NASCAR or not,” said Thomas Rhett. “So, to be able to go there and perform…that definitely goes on the 'Things I'll tell my Grandkids' list."

The Platinum-selling singer/songwriter was also recently tapped as direct support for Florida Georgia Line on their upcoming ANYTHING GOES TOUR 2015, which kicks off Jan. 15 in Toledo, OH. The new tour will follow runs with some of Country Music’s biggest stars including Jason Aldean and Miranda Lambert.

Thomas Rhett just released the new single “Make You Wanna” from his debut album IT GOES LIKE THIS (The Valory Music Co.), which has already spawned two consecutive Platinum-certified No. one hits, spending a total of four weeks in the top position in the last year.

TANYA TUCKER AT COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME® AND MUSEUM

 
TANYA TUCKER: STRONG ENOUGH TO BEND
OPENS NOVEMBER 14 AT
COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME® AND MUSEUM

 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 16, 2014) – The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum will explore the career of superstar Tanya Tucker with the exhibition Tanya Tucker: Strong Enough to Bend, which opens November 14, 2014, and runs through May 2015.

Tanya Tucker’s talent blossomed early, despite being born into poverty in Texas and raised in ramshackle apartments and trailers in Arizona, Utah, and Nevada. She began performing on local shows at age six, and within years was a regular on a Phoenix TV program.  A Las Vegas agent sent a demo recording to Billy Sherrill, who quickly signed Tucker to Columbia Records. She was thirteen years old.

At the time, few child performers had achieved success in country music. But the singer’s husky voice and audacious confidence made her seem more grown-up. She proved as much when she walked into a Nashville studio, in March 1972, and announced to Sherrill and the veteran musicians, “Well, I know my part, boys. Do you know yours?” She proceeded to belt out “Delta Dawn” like a seasoned pro, and by summer the song was a hit.

Tucker assured her success by releasing six consecutive Top Ten hits—including the #1s “What’s Your Mama’s Name,” “Blood Red and Goin’ Down,” and “Would You Lay With Me (in a Field of Stone)”—in two years, all produced by Sherrill. The narrative songs told daring stories that courted controversy, and Tucker’s mature-beyond-her-years vocal style brought out the drama and emotion in each.

Two years into her singing career, Tucker appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine—a rare national media spotlight for a country star in 1974. To her parents, Beau and Juanita Tucker, such recognition signified that their teen daughter had crossover potential that could take her beyond the country audience.

On October 10, 1974—Tucker’s sixteenth birthday—she signed a $1.4 million contract with MCA Records, a deal brokered by her ambitious father. Her seven years on MCA yielded the #1 hits “Lizzie and the Rainman.” “San Antonio Stroll,” and “Here’s Some Love.” In 1978, she recorded the rock-influenced album T.N.T. in Los Angeles.

In California, Tucker began dating singer Glen Campbell, twenty-two years her senior; their fiery, tabloid-filled relationship ended in acrimony.  After a stint with Arista Records, Tucker signed with Capitol Records and reunited with producer Jerry Crutchfield, with whom she had worked at MCA.

Tucker’s 1986 album, Girl Like Me, featured four Top Ten hits, including the #1 “Just Another Love.” She enjoyed a long run of success on Capitol (and sister label Liberty), with a string of Top Ten hits through 1997, including three consecutive #1s, “I Won’t Take Less Than Your Love,” “If It Don’t Come Easy,” and “Strong Enough to Bend.”

Tanya Tucker heard her name called as the 1991 CMA Female Vocalist of the Year while lying in a hospital bed, watching the awards show on TV. Earlier the same day, she had delivered her second child, Beau.

Her first child, daughter Presley, was born in July 1989—a year after Tucker had checked herself into the Betty Ford Center over issues with substance abuse. Her third child, Layla, arrived in 1999.

For Tucker, the CMA award came at a time when some radio stations refused to play her music while criticizing her choice to be a single mother. The CMA award, the first of her career, proved that the country music industry at large continued to support her. The national media cited Tucker’s win, and her eighteen Top Ten hits between 1988 and 1994, as signs that country music reflected the evolving roles of women in American society.

Tucker detailed her colorful life story in her 1997 autobiography, Nickel Dreams: My Life. The singer also starred in her own reality show, Tuckerville, on cable network TLC. “Every one of us has good and bad times in our lives,” Tucker wrote in Nickel Dreams. “In my case, they have been to extremes.”

Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum is operated by the Country Music Foundation, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) educational organization chartered by the state of Tennessee in 1964. The museum’s mission is the preservation of the history of country and related vernacular music rooted in southern culture.  With the same educational mission, the foundation also operates CMF Records, the museum’s Frist Library and Archive, CMF Press, Historic RCA Studio B and Hatch Show Print®.
