CCMA AWARD-WINNING COUNTRY STAR AARON PRITCHETT TO HEADLINE

Toronto, ON - CCMA Award-winning country star Aaron Pritchett will be joined by special guests Cory Marquardt and newcomers King & Cash to kick off the West Coast leg of their Outlaws & Outsiders tour this winter. Beginning on January 15, 2015 in Victoria, BC, the tour will continue east with more dates to be announced soon. Outlaws & Outsiders promises rowdy, high-energy shows from both Aaron Pritchett and Cory Marquardt, who is set to release his sophomore album in the new year, and making their touring debut will be King & Cash, an Invictus Entertainment collaboration matching Faber Drive's Jordan Pritchett with country singer Dan Arnold.

"The Outlaws & Outsiders tour is something I've been dreaming of for a long time," says Aaron Pritchett. "Not only is it a headlining tour but I also get to be on the road with some very cool company. Cory Marquardt is a killer performer so that's going to be a fun set to watch every night! The other reason I love the Outlaws & Outsiders tour is that my son, Jordan, will be one of the acts on the bill. He and Dan Arnold are the newcomers on the scene, making up King & Cash. All in all, so many great cities to play for the BEST fans in the world with the coolest people ever. Who could ask for more?"

Mountain Fever Artists Breaking Grass and Detour Give Back In Season of Thanks



Mountain Fever Artists Breaking Grass and
Detour
Give Back In Season of Thanks


ALL Proceeds from Breaking Grass Single "Fly" go to the
Amber Peeks Scholarship Foundation
Detour Continues Support of Homeless Veterans


Willis, VA - Mountain Fever artists Breaking Grass and Detour have focused their energy on giving back in a season where thankfulness is at the front of our minds. 
Mississippi's Breaking Grass has been deeply touched by their involvement with a young girl from their hometown named Amber Peeks who has left an indelible impression.
Guitarist Cody Farrar and principal songwriter for Breaking Grass says, "The inspiration behind our original, "Fly" (Amber's Song), was written about a young lady by the name of Amber Peeks.  Amber battled cancer for the majority of her life. Aside from the shaved head and fragile frame, you would never have known that Amber was sick. She always had a smile on her face; always a kind word or gesture. She impacted our small, hometown, and everyone in it, in a tremendous way. We wanted to pay tribute to Amber and penned the song "Fly" in her honor."
With a great effort to complete the song in time for Amber to hear it, the band was able to get it finished and roughly recorded in time for her to enjoy.  Breaking Grass was honored to have Amber's Song played at her homegoing service. 
Farrar continues, "It is our goal, now, to share Amber's story with all who will hear it. She was more than a little girl with an incurable disease. She was a role model."
Family and friends created the Amber Peeks Scholarship Foundation to aid others in paying for their education and to keep Amber's spirit of giving to others alive. ALL proceeds from the download of the single "Fly" will be donated to the Amber Peeks Scholarship Foundation.  The band is urging fans to listen, download it, and donate.  Donations can be made directly to the Northeast Development Foundation 101 Cunningham Boulevard Booneville MS 38829 or by calling Tiffany Johnson (662)-720-7185. Credit, debit cards and checks are accepted.

DETOUR's commitment to giving back is strong this fall as they recently presented additional funds to Goodwill’s Patriot Place Project from proceeds of the sale of their songs “Soldier’s Sorrow” and “Homeless of the Brave.”  Band member Jeff Rose presented Kathleen Arndt, Patriot Place Program Director, a check in the amount of $2,000. An additional $3,000 in matching funds will also be donated from Detour’s fans along with future donations from the band’s record label, Mountain Fever Records.
“Soldier’s Sorrow” appears on the DETOUR’s current album, GOING NOWHERE FAST on Mountain Fever. “We are honored to be able to be part of this effort to assist homeless Veterans. All of the friends of Detour have been so supportive of this effort and we thank them for buying our music to make these donations possible. You just can’t beat the Bluegrass Music family,” said Rose.
Mountain Fever Records President, Mark Hodges certainly agrees saying, “Bluegrass is the most personable genre of any music. It’s more like one big family and when you have such big hearted and humble people like Jeff Rose and Missy Armstrong along with the rest of Detour, it’s easy to see how their fans and friends are so willing to help out and get involved with this great cause that they have chosen to support. I’m proud to know them and honored to work with them.”
Several years ago, Rose wrote “Homeless of the Brave” (from their previous album A BETTER PLACE) as a direct response to a story that he heard on the radio about the plight of homeless veterans. He was stunned to learn that there are approximately 70,000 homeless veterans in this country and over 600 in northern Michigan alone. He then made the decision to donate proceeds of the sale of the song to Goodwill’s Patriot Place that is a transitional housing community for Northern Michigan’s homeless veterans.

The Smashing Pumpkins spielen am 30. November in Berlin


The Smashing Pumpkins spielen am 30. November in Berlin

Mit mehr als 30 Millionen verkaufter und mit unzähligen Grammys ausgezeichneter Alben haben The Smashing Pumpkins Musikgeschichte geschrieben. Sie definierten nicht nur die alternative Musikszene neu, sondern beeinflussten mit ihren Werken eine komplette Generation des modernen Radio-Rocks. Nach ihrer Gründung 1988 in Chicago veröffentlichten sie 1991 ihr richtungweisendes, platingekröntes Debüt „Gish“, gefolgt von „Siamese Dream“ (vierfach Platin allein in den USA), „Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness“ (zehnfach Platin) und „Adore“ (einfach Platin). Das im Juni 2012 von Kritikern gefeierte „Oceania“ enterte sofort Platz vier der Billboard -Charts, und der Rolling Stone bejubelte es als eines der besten Alben des Jahres. Jetzt kündigte die Band um Frontmann und Haupt-Songschreiber Billy Corgan an, dass demnächst gleich zwei neue Platten veröffentlicht werden: Anfang Dezember erscheint „Monuments To An Elegy“, im Laufe des kommenden Jahres folgt „Day For Night“. Sie sind Teil und krönender Abschluss des Zyklus „Teargarden By Kaleidyscope“, an dem die Smashing Pumpkins seit 2009 arbeiten und zu dem neben Download-Tracks auch zwei EPs und eben „Oceania“ gehören. Für diese Songs hat Corgan das Line-up gehörig durcheinander gewürfelt. Überhaupt ließ Corgan verbreiten, wisse er nach Abschluss dieser Geschichte rund um den Narren aus den Tarot-Karten noch gar nicht, wie es mit den Kürbissen weitergehe, wie die Band sich im 21. Jahrhundert aufstellen werde oder ob es einfach der Abschied sei. Wer also ganz sicher gehen will und die Smashing Pumpkins auf jeden Fall noch einmal live sehen will, sollte sich um Tickets für die exklusive Show am 30. November im Berliner Kesselhaus bemühen.

30.11.2014 Berlin - Kesselhaus

Tickets gibt es ab sofort für 55 Euro zzgl. Gebühren an allen bekannten CTS–VVK-Stellen

CD OVERNIGHT SUCESS.

A PRIMEIRA VISTA(E EU GOSTO DE FAZER ISTO)ZANE PARECE A MIM UM COUNTRY MAN DA CABEÇA ATÉ A PONTA DAS BOTAS.....
BEM, JÁ JOGUEI MEUS DADOS....OUVI ALGUMAS MUSICAS E ESTOU DESENHANDO A FIGURA DE ZANE EM MINHA MENTE....NA BIOGRAFIA DELE VEMOS ESCRITO EM INGLÊS....
"IT DIDNT MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE HOW ZANE WILLIAMS WENT ABOUT REAL WRITING A SONG, IT JUST CAME OUT COUNTRY."" YOU MIGTH SAY ZANE DIDNT SO MUCH FOUND COUNTRY AS COUNTRY FOUND HIM".
O QUE VEM COMFIRMAR O QUE SENTI AO OUVIR AS MUSICAS E "ENTENDER" COMO,E ZANE WILLIAMS.
QUANDO OUÇO UMA MÚSICA, OU MUSICAS DE ALGUÉM, VEM A MINHA MENTE A IMPRESSÃO REAL DE QUEM CANTA....O SOM DA VOZ, O MODO DE CANTAR....AS VÁRIAS FACETAS DA MÚSICA , TRAZEM PARA MIM COMO É O AUTOR OU CANTOR DA MÚSICA.....ASSIM FOI COM ZANE TAMBÉM....
NASCEU EM 1977 NO TEXAS, EUA.CANTOR E SONGWRITER, ZANE FEZ APRESENTAÇÕES EM RÁDIOS NO INÍCIO DE SUA CARREIRA.
UM DE SEUS PENSAMENTOS....VAI EM INGLÊS , PARA NÃO TIRAR A AUTENTICIDADE...
"ITS ALREADY BEEN AN AMAZING JOURNEY AND I CAN HONESTELY SAY, I AM DOING WHAT I LOVE"


TEMOS 11 MUSICAS. OVERNIGTH SUCESS.

1)OVERNIGTH SUCESS. 2)SURE FELT GOOD BYE. 3)ON A GOOD DAY. 4)WHEN YOURE A WOMAN. 5)RAMNED. 6)THE SIMPLE THINGS.7)LITTLE TO LATE. 8) KISSIN. 9)HAND OF A WORKIN MAN. 10)TIRED OF GETTIN BY 11)WHILE I WAS AWAY.



APRECIAÇÃO DA OBRA.

COMEÇAMOS POR VER SIMPLE THINGS, UMA BOA MÚSICA.HAND OF A WORKIN MAN, GUITARRA NO CENTRO DA MUSICALIDADE,VOZ E BATERIA MUITO BONS, CRIANDO UM CONJUNTO EXCELENTE.
TIRED OF GETWAY, SONS DE GUITARRA DANDO SENSAÇÃO DE CALMA, COMO SE ESTIVÉSSEMOS EM UM LUGAR CALMO COM UMA FOGUEIRA , UM LUGAR TRANQUILO ....ZANE FAZENDO SEU SOM E ACHANDO BOM, ASSIM COMO EU.
KISSIN , DEU A MIM A IMPRESSÃO DE UMA MÚSICA DE COWBOYS, UMA VOZ QUE SE TORNA DIFERENCIADA, A SONORIDADE MAIS ABERTA A NOSSOS OUVIDOS, UM POUCO MAIS AGUDA, PORÉM DENTRO DO CONFORTO SONORO....
LITTLE TO LATE, BOA, SEM MAIORES COMENTARIOS.
DAMNED E WHEN YOURE A WOMAN, AS DUAS SÃO BOAS , SEGUINDO O JEITO ZANE DE CANTAR.
ON A GOOD DAY, COUNTRY MUITO BEM FEITO,VOZ EM LAMENTO...GUITARRA BEM UTILIZADA, TRAZENDO BOAS EMOÇÕES E LEMBRANÇAS QUE SE PERDEM EM NOSSO IDEÁRIO, MAS QUE AO OUVIR UMA BOA MÚSICA , VEM LOGO A NOSSA MENTE! BOA MÚSICA PARA NÓS DO COUNTRY WORLD....

CONCLUSÃO.
ZANE WILLIAMS , E UM BOM CANTOR E SONGWRITER, PORÉM FALTA A ELE UM POUCO MAIS DE EMOÇÃO EM ALGUMAS DE SUAS MUSICAS....
DIGO ISTO, POIS ELE TEM NO SANGUE A POSSIBILIDADE DE TIRAR DE SI MESMO MUITO MAIS DO QUE MOSTROU. POR EXEMPLO, PARA ENTENDERMOS MELHOR...OVER NIGTH SUCESS, ON A GOOD
DAY, ,HAND OF A WORKIN MAN E KISSIN. NESTAS MUSICAS ZANE MOSTRA O QUE CITEI...PÕE EMOÇÃO NA MÚSICA E ELA SE REVELA E COM ELA APARECE O ZANE REAL....COM POTENCIAL DE VOZ, EMOÇÃO, COLOCANDO A VOZ ,SUSTENTANDO A MÚSICA É FAZENDO A EMOÇÃO ROLAR...
NAS OUTRA MUSICAS , ZANE ,,,SE ESCONDE, DIGAMOS ASSIM, COLOCA A VOZ MENOS, DA MENOS FORÇA A INTERPRETAÇÃO....NÃO CANTA CONVINCENTEMENTE! HÁ DENTRO DELE UM POTENCIAL MAIOR QUE ESPERA PARA SER MOSTRADO....A CHAVE DE TUDO, ESTÁ NA VOZ E NA VONTADE DE ZANE WILLIAMS.....E ELE TEM TUDO ISTO...TEM SOMENTE QUE JOGAR PARA FORA, SER ATENTO AO INTERPRETAR....AO CANTAR!
NÃO COSTUMO ERRAR NO ALVO....SE ZANE ENTENDER, TEREMOS MUITO A OUVIR E VER O REAL TALENTO DELE....E ATRAS DISTO...MUITOS PRÊMIOS!

Jason Crabb Joins Rascal Flatts, Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, Amy Grant, Dolly Parton and More on New Collection: Top 25 Country Songs of Faith

Grammy Winner’s Inspiring Anthem “Love Is Stronger” Featured on Two-Disc Set

 
NASHVILLE, TN – Grammy winner Jason Crabb’s powerful song, “Love Is Stronger,” is featured as one of the top twenty-five most inspiring songs of faith on the new collection from Maranatha! Music’s Top 25 series, Top 25 Country Songs of Faith. The brand has sold nearly 1.8 million copies since inception with ‘Songs of Faith’ the first country set in the series.
 
The twenty-one time GMA Dove Award winner joins a stellar line-up of artists featuring Rascal Flatts, Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, Amy Grant, Dolly Parton, Wynonna Judd, Kenny Chesney, Chris Young, Johnny Cash and more.
 
From the moment Crabb heard “Love Is Stronger,” he knew the song would touch hearts. “Jay DeMarcus, my producer, brought this song to me,” Crabb shares. “I immediately knew I had to record it this song - I knew it would touch people because it touched me. My wife Shellye was going through some very hard times when this song came into our lives - it helped me and I knew it would help others.
 
The song later came to life through a video directed by award-winner Roman White. Debuting nationally on USAToday.com, the video stars Ashley DeRamus, a young lady living with Downs Syndrome, bringing awareness to those living with the disease.
 
“This song shares a universal message of hope and encouragement,” comments Crabb. “We’re all going through something and this song reminds us that love - of Jesus, of our families - it’s stronger than anything and will pull us through. I am honored that I was chosen to sing this song.”
 
The album, available in stores and online, boasts all original artist recordings from some of the brightest, biggest, and best artists who are performing songs of faith notable for their uplifting lyrics.
 
Top 25 Country Songs of Faith is a double-disc collection including Grammy-winning artists from contemporary chart-topping acts to legendary hit-makers. Fans will recognize favorite No. 1 tracks, heartfelt duets, and a mixture of ballads and up-tempo songs.

There's no slowing down for this talented communicator. Jason Crabb is currently on the road with the "Music & Madness" tour with Mark Lowry & The Martins and also the "Learning To Laugh Again" tour with Chonda Pierce.

FRANKIE BALLARD CONTINUES #1

FRANKIE BALLARD CONTINUES #1 STREAK WITH “SUNSHINE & WHISKEY”


Gold-Selling Smash Marks Second Consecutive #1 Single

Nashville, TN (November 17, 2014) – Warner Bros. Records’ Frankie Ballard returns to the top with “Sunshine & Whiskey” taking the #1 spot on both the Mediabase and Billboard Country Airplay Charts this week. The infectious anthem marks the singer-guitarist’s second consecutive #1 smash and has sold well over 500,000 copies to date.

“I’m so grateful to be here at the top again! We’re still celebrating ‘Helluva Life’ and now we're back... I’m feeling VERY blessed! This is what you dream of and work for and I'm so grateful to Country Radio for playing my music and the fans for supporting me,” shares Ballard.

Ballard will celebrate with fans nationwide on his first headlining trek – LIGHT ‘EM UP Tour - as part of the exclusive Live Nation Ones To Watch tour with Skype. The run stops in 19-cities through December with upcoming shows in Houston, TX (11/19), New Orleans, LA (11/20), and San Antonio, TX (11/21).  

Ballard is basking in the success of “Sunshine & Whiskey” after making the move to Nashville in 2009 from Battle Creek, MI, to pursue music. Drawing on his working class values, he performed every chance he could and honed in his guitar and songwriting skills. He steadily built a loyal fan base and took the time to grow as an artist and an individual. All of these experiences culminated in the release of his current album, SUNSHINE & WHISKEY, which delivered his first #1, GOLD-certified smash “Helluva Life,” debuted in the Top 5 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and was noted as “required listening” by ROLLING STONE. Produced by Marshall Altman (Marc Broussard), the album captures Ballard’s unique blend of blues-infused, country rock and his undeniable guitar prowess on every song. Previously opening for Jake Owen, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift and longtime idol Bob Seger, the talented showman will amp it up even further next year on the Florida Georgia Line 2015 ANYTHING GOES Tour.
