(Nashville, Tenn. – Jan. 22, 2015) – Country artist Jon Wolfe will release his much anticipated album, Natural Man, on March 31. 

Natural Man, produced by Wolfe, Lex Lipsitz and Billy Decker and recorded at Nashville’s Westwood Studios and Ronnie’s Place, is a 13-track collection of songs that merges Wolfe’s signature traditional sound, influenced by some of Country music’s greatest legends, including George Strait, Garth Brooks, Clint Black and Dwight Yoakam, with an edgy, modern energy. 


Wolfe describes the album as a personal journey, saying, “Natural Man is a concept that I have wanted to record for a few years. This album stretches me as an artist and as a vocalist, while staying true to who I am. I have known how I wanted it to sound, and how I wanted it to look for some time now. I’ve been visualizing this album for such a long time, and it feels great to finally bring it to life!” 


Fans can preview Natural Man on its pre-sale date of March 3 through iTunes, Amazon and other major digital retailers.

1. If You’re Lonely Too (Jimmy Yeary / Ben Hayslip / Wyatt Durrette) 
2. That’s What I’m Talkin’ About (Tom Shapiro / Jacob Powell / Michael Carter) 

3. Smile On Mine (Dallas Davidson / Ben Hayslip / Rhett Akins) 

4. It Just Feels Right (Jon Pardi / Bart Butler / Jeremy Spillman) 

5. What Are You Doin’ Right Now (Ashley Gorley / Rodney Clawson / Wade Kirby) 

6. Don’t It Feel Good (Deric Ruttan / Jonathan Singleton) 

7. She Beats All I’ve Ever Seen (James Dean Hicks / Brett Jones / Jason Allen) 

8. Singin’ Thing (Jon Wolfe / Tim Johnson / James Dean Hicks) 

9. Natural Man (Brett Jones)
10. Outrun Her Memory (Jayce Hein / Thomas Tillman / Stephen Pasch / Kim Tribble) 
11. I’m Doin’ Alright (Jon Wolfe / Billy Crain / Adrienne Follese) 

12. Married to Nothin’ (Casey Beathard / Kenneth Wright / Shane Minor) 

13. When I Get To Heaven (Pat Alger / Chris Cavanaugh)

Leadoff single, “Smile On Mine” hits radio in late January and be available for download on iTunes, Amazon and other major digital retailers on Feb. 3, 2015. The up-beat tune features Wolfe’s familiar traditional sound while showcasing a new modern flair. With its catchy hook and foot-tapping melody, “Smile On Mine” tells the story of budding romance on a first date.

Of the new single, Wolfe comments, “My new single “Smile On Mine” really clicked with me the first time I heard it. It represents this important bridge between traditional country and the more edgy, modern melodies we're hearing on the radio these days. That's what I feel like my whole new album is doing - I'm staying true to my roots and my traditional voice, but also growing and adapting with the times. I think my fans are going to love it!”

From his native small town in Miami, Oklahoma to the bustling Texas dancehalls and honky-tonks; Wolfe’s music has been burning up the Texas Charts where he garnered six consecutive Top Ten singles  (“Let A Country Boy Love You,” “That Girl In Texas,” “I Don’t Dance,” “It All Happened In A Honky Tonk,” “The Only Time You Call” and “What Are You Doin’ Right Now”), making Wolfe a “must see” act in the Texas touring scene.

His 2010 release, It All Happened In A Honky Tonk, became such a regional success that it was re-released as a Deluxe Edition by Warner Music Nashville in 2013. The album debuted at #34 on the Billboard Album Chart and has collectively sold 25,000 units.

A seasoned performer, Wolfe has opened for some of Country’s biggest stars and has played more than 400 live shows over the past four years. He has a busy 2015 tour schedule on the horizon. Details surrounding the forthcoming tour will be released in the coming weeks.

Following a sold-out opening weekend for ANYTHING GOES TOUR 2015, the superstar duo stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to Perform Their Top 5 Smash “Sun Daze”

Nashville, TN (January 21, 2015) - Superstar duo Florida Georgia Line will appear on NBC’s Access Hollywood Live tomorrow (1/22) to talk with host Kit Hoover about their meteoric rise, success of their current Top 5 hit “Sun Daze” and kicking off a sold-out opening weekend of their headline ANYTHING GOES TOUR 2015. Check local listings for broadcast details.
 
FGL stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday to chat with Ellen, who also gave the pair an interesting gift. Watch the segment here.  They also performed "Sun Daze" in front of the studio audience.
 
FGL proved to be unstoppable in 2014 with their GOLD-certified sophomore album ANYTHING GOES (Republic Nashville) catapulting to a #1 debut on the all-genre Billboard 200 and Billboard Top Country Albums charts upon release. Continuing the momentum with their PLATINUM, #1 smash "Dirt," FGL racked up 13 industry awards throughout 2014 and kicked off 2015 with a bang – an epic, live performance on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. The accolades continue to pour in as the record-breaking duo closed out 2014 topping four of Billboard’s year-end charts and leading Forbes “30 Under 30” list. 

FGL has skyrocketed to stardom becoming the only artist in history to join Brooks & Dunn in achieving four back-to-back, multi-week #1 singles; breaking the record for longest #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and selling over 21 million tracks worldwide of their 2X PLATINUM debut HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES and ANYTHING GOES. In addition to collaborating across genres with sensations like Nelly and Jason Derulo, FGL has won numerous industry awards and recently earned CMT’s Artists of the Year for the second consecutive year, the 2014 Billboard Touring Award for Breakthrough Artist and the American Music Award for Favorite Band Duo or Group, Country.

JENNY GILL

Nashville, TN – January 21, 2015 - Vince Gill will share the stage and sing along with Ashley Monroe, Charlie Worsham and daughter Jenny Gill on the four-date mini-tour, “Vince Gill & Friends,” March 19-22. The intimate musical experience is a thematic extension of his January round of shows with fellow musician Lyle Lovett.
Singer-songwriter Ashley Monroe is preparing the follow-up to her critically acclaimed debut album, Like A Rose, working again with producer Vince Gill. She’s currently enjoying Top 10 success with “Lonely Tonight,” her duet with Blake Shelton. Charlie Worsham demonstrated his showmanship opening for Taylor Swift, and sharing stages with the likes of Miranda Lambert and Kacey Musgraves, while going on to distinguish himself as a solo artist with Rubberband, his debut album for Warner Bros. Records.  
An ardent believer that musicians exist to serve the song, Vince Gill says all three guest performers will be on stage with him and his band for the duration of each show.  “This won’t be a ‘guitar pull,’” he explains, “where one person sings while the others listen and wait for their turn.  We’ll all be pitching in, picking and singing harmony for each other and doing each other’s songs.  It will be a musical collaboration—not a headliner with opening acts.”
Gill is one of the most active and awarded performers in modern-day music.  In addition to the nearly two dozen albums he has recorded as a solo artist, he has been a guest artist on nearly 1,000 albums by other singers in virtually all genres of popular music.   A 20-time Grammy-winner, he is also a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Grand Ole Opry.  He has his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and was recently declared a BMI Icon, an honor reserved for the most influential songwriters.  He is also a member of the Grammy-nominated Nashville supergroup, The Time Jumpers. 
Here are the "Vince Gill & Friends" tour dates and locations:
March 19, El Dorado Municipal Auditorium, El Dorado, Arkansas
March 20, River City Casino, St. Louis, Missouri
March 21, Taft Theatre, Cincinnati, Ohio
March 22, Milwaukee Theatre, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

T. GRAHAM BROWN HEADED TO THE GRAMMY AWARDS

New Album Features Collaborations with Vince Gill, Leon Russell, The Oak Ridge Boys, Steve Cropper, Jimmy Fortune, Jason Crabb and more!

T. Graham Brown
  NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 21, 2015) – T. Graham Brown, one of the most distinctive song stylists in Country Music, is continuing to make some history of his own. Forever Changed, his latest project, has just netted the Georgia native a Grammy nomination for Best Album in the Gospel Roots category. The awards will be presented on February 8 in Los Angeles.

The album, which will be released on January 27 through Sony RED/Provident/Mansion Entertainment, as well as iTunes, showcases the stylist’s deep and reverent love of Gospel music. The album features guest appearances from some of the top names in the business, such as Country Music Hall of Fame member Vince Gill, who lends his talents to “He’ll Take Care Of You.” Other iconic artists that appear on Forever Changed include The Oak Ridge Boys, Leon Russell, Sonya Isaacs, Steve Cropper, and former Statler Brothers tenor singer Jimmy Fortune, Jeff & Sheri Easter, The Booth Brothers, and Three Bridges. The thirteen-track set was co-produced by Mark L. Carman and T. Graham Brown, and includes such heart-rending performances as the classic “People Get Ready,” the Bill Anderson co-written “Which Way To Pray,” as well as a new version of his 1999 self-penned hit single “Wine Into Water,” which details his successful battle with alcohol abuse.

Track Listing:
1.   He’ll Take Care Of You (with Vince Gill)
2.   From A Stronger Place
3.   Soul Talk (with Jason Crabb)
4.   Forever Changed
5.   Shadow Of Doubt (with Leon Russell)

10. Midnight Rainbow (with Three Bridges)
11. Which Way To Pray (with Sonya Isaacs)
12. How Do We Know (with The Oak Ridge Boys)
13. Wine Into Water (with Jimmy Fortune)

The disc marks another stunning chapter in a career that began in the mid-1980s with his signing to Capitol Nashville. His first single for the label, “Drowning In Memories” hit the Billboard Top-40, and helped the singer kick off a series of hits that included “I Tell It Like It Used To Be,” “I Wish That I Could Hurt That Way Again,” and the number one singles “Hell and High Water,” “Don’t Go To Strangers,” and “Darlene.” Brown’s talents also earned him several commercial endorsements, including Taco Bell, McDonalds, Coca-Cola, Mountain Dew, and Dodge Trucks. Brown continues to bring his unique mix of Country and R&B to fans throughout the United States each year, and can be seen on such popular RFD-TV series as Country’s Family Reunion and Larry’s Country Diner.
