NASHVILLE, TN (January 28, 2015) – Platinum-selling country star Kristian Bush brings his voice to the forefront with his highly anticipated debut solo album, SOUTHERN GRAVITY, to be released April 7 on Streamsound Records. Drawing on his proven skills as a hit-making performer, writer and producer, the record builds on the catchy, radio-friendly vibe of lead single “Trailer Hitch” and showcases Bush as a recording artist at the top of his craft.

"I love this album. The songs on SOUTHERN GRAVITY feel like home to me, and I am proud and excited to share them, finally. They are your stories as much as they are mine, and I hope you hear yourself in here, no matter if you are standing up, falling down, or dancing in between the pieces of your life,” said Bush.
For his solo debut, the GRAMMY Award winner teamed with friend and producer Tom Tapley, as well as executive producer Byron Gallimore (Sugarland, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw), to hone SOUTHERN GRAVITY’s groove-heavy mainstream country sound. Bush is a co-writer on each of the album’s 12 tracks, including collaborations with legendary Nashville songwriters like Bob DiPiero, Paul Overstreet, Tom Douglas and more.

The feel-good lead single “Trailer Hitch” – now Top 25 and rising at radio -- was released to rave reviews from music critics, radio, and fans alike. Named USA Today’s “Song of the Week,” the track was also featured in ROLLING STONE Country’s TOP 25 SONGS OF 2014 and iTunes BEST OF 2014 – COUNTRY SONGS. The infectious tune has racked up millions of streams to date, and its inspiring lyrics sparked Bush to partner with Goodwill Industries International for the #GiveItAway campaign to encourage donations of used clothing and goods.

Bush has been leaving his mark on music for more than two decades. The singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist started his career with folk-rock duo Billy Pilgrim in the early ‘90s, releasing a much-lauded pair of albums for Atlantic Records (self-titled debut and BLOOM). In 2004, he exploded onto the country music scene with Sugarland, surpassing sales of over 22 million albums worldwide, achieving five No. 1 singles and winning numerous awards, including GRAMMYs, AMAs, ACMs, CMT Music Awards and CMAs. To date, Bush has garnered six BMI Awards for his songwriting, and in 2011 he founded the music publishing company and songwriting collective Songs of the Architect, collaborating with Matt Nathanson, the dB’s, Martin Johnson of Boys Like Girls, Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale and more.
In 2015, Bush will continue his PUT YOUR SOUL IN IT TOUR, beginning with appearances at the Ryman Auditorium (2/15), The Bluebird Cafe (2/26) and the Grand Ole Opry (3/6) in Nashville before heading overseas for select tour stops in Australia.

Nan Kelley will host.  More award-winning acts are being added daily (to be announced at a later date).
 “This event is special for me; this lady is special to me.  She’s been my lifeline for so many years; she knows me like no other,” said Lorrie Morgan“There is nothing that is fair or good about this horrible disease. It’s so difficult to even think about what she has been going through…while we all must continue on with own lives. Debbie is in our hearts, our thoughts and our prayers as she lives day-to-day fighting this silent killer.”
Autographed artist photos and VIP show laminates will be available for purchase at the show. All proceeds from ticket and collectible item sales will be dedicated to support Debbie to assist in alleviating her financial burden while she fights to overcome her poor health.

T. GRAHAM BROWN RETURNS

T. GRAHAM BROWN RETURNS WITH FOREVER CHANGED

SET MARKS HIS FIRST STUDIO ALBUM IN NINE YEARS

T. Graham Brown
  NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 27, 2015) – It’s been almost a decade since T. Graham Brown has released a new studio album, but that drought comes to an end today with the release of Forever Changed. The disc is released by Mansion Entertainment and distributed by Sony RED Distribution and Provident. The album is also available through Cracker Barrel Old Country Store. Brown co-produced the disc with Mark L. Carman.

In addition to Brown’s trademark blues styling, Forever Changed features no less than twelve of Brown’s contemporaries and fellow artists lending their talents to the album. Among the guest list includes Vince Gill, Leon Russell, Steve Cropper, The Oak Ridge Boys, and Jimmy Fortune. The disc has already made a little bit of history for the Georgia native by garnering him his first ever Grammy nomination – in the category of Best Gospel Roots Album. Brown and his wife Sheila will be traveling to Los Angeles for the February 8 Grammy festivities.

Brown – whose last studio disc was 2006’s The Present – is very excited for his fans to hear the new music. “It’s a neat record. I think it’s probably the best one I’ve ever made, and I’ve got a lot of friends singing on it. I picked out a batch of songs I liked, and it turned out exactly like I wanted it to. Then, it gets nominated for a Grammy, and I’ve never been nominated for one before, so I’m loving every minute of it.” The album’s first single, “He’ll Take Care Of You,” the collaboration with Vince Gill, is currently making an impact at both Country radio and Southern Gospel radio.

Brown was born in Georgia, and played in local bands throughout the 1970s, making the move to Nashville in the early 1980s. His talent came to the attention of Capitol Records executive Jim Fogelsong, who signed him to the label. His first single, “Drowning In Memories,” immediately connected with fans, landing in the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot Country Singles Chart, but the best was yet to come. His sophomore release, “I Tell It Like It Used To Be,” hit the Top-10, kicking off a series of hits that included “Hell and High Water,” “Darlene,” “Come As You Were,” and “Don’t Go Out,” a 1990 hit single that paired him with Tanya Tucker. In 1998, Brown charted with the personal “Wine Into Water,” a song that detailed his long and painful struggle with alcohol addiction. Brown re-cut the song on Forever Changed with Jimmy Fortune.

2015 marks three decades since Brown first hit the charts, and the singer will celebrate by taking his unique blend of Country and Blues on the road.
