BIG & RICH TO BE THE BACHELOR

 
COUNTRY MUSIC DUO BIG & RICH TO BE FEATURED IN UPCOMING EPISODE OF ABC’s HIT ROMANCE REALITY SERIES THE BACHELOR
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (February 5, 2014) – Famed country music duo Big & Rich will be featured on an upcoming episode of The Bachelor.

Chris Soules, the handsome and successful new Bachelor who has become known as “Prince Farming,” introduced himself to last season’s Bachelorette Andi Dorfman, and female fans fell hard for the soft-spoken man with a heart of gold. Now, this dreamboat farmer and wealthy businessman from Iowa is looking to fall in love and find a wife — and bring her back home to share a life with him in the small Iowa town of Arlington. With the support of his family and the state of Iowa rooting for him, Chris truly believes he can find the right woman to share a life with. Follow Chris Soules’ search for his soul mate in the 19th edition of The Bachelor on Mondays (8:00–10:01 pm ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Nashville, TN (February 4, 2015) - Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road are putting the final touches on their forthcoming album, Country Grass, which will feature collaborations with many Country music hit-makers including T.G. Sheppard, John Conlee, Lee Greenwood, Lynn Anderson, Eddy Raven and Jim Ed Brown.  In addition, bluegrass favorites Ronnie Reno and Marty Raybon join the stellar lineup of talent that made some magical memories in the studio.  

Lorraine Jordan & Carolina Road's distinct sound sets them apart from many traditional bluegrass bands, now enter The Kentucky Headhunters and you have magic!  The new single "Runnin' Water," differentiated with Lorraine and Doug Phelps and Richard Young on vocals, shows the band's warm and welcoming personality.  Lorraine Jordan hailing from North Carolina, while The Headhunters hail from Kentucky which attributes to the bluegrass-rich sound this track brings. The single will be accompanied by a music video that was filmed in Kentucky at the legendary Practice House, the location that has delivered all the previous Kentucky Headhunter hit singles.

"The first time I heard The Kentucky Headhunters music, I was a fan. The group was different than anything out there in the world of Country music. Being from Kentucky, I knew they had Bluegrass roots, but when they released "Walk Softly On This Heart of Mine" it showed me just what they could do with the music," says Lorraine Jordan.

Country Grass will be released in Spring 2015 on Pinecastle Records. It was produced by Lorraine Jordan and Josh Goforth. Track listing and more information coming soon!

LARRY GATLIN & THE GATLIN BROTHERS 60TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR

LARRY GATLIN & THE GATLIN BROTHERS ANNOUNCE 60TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR

Gatlin Brothers Announce First Wave of Tour Dates in Celebration of 60 Years of Music
Nashville, Tenn. (February 4, 2015) - Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers have been dazzling
audiences for 60 years.  It all began in 1955, when Larry was six, Steve was four, and Rudy was two.  Since those days, the road that the trio has plowed has taken them to concert stages all over the world and has seen their records top the charts and touch the lives of fans from eight to eighty. 
 
Larry says of their 60th Anniversary Tour, "We’re not calling it a farewell or a final tour.  We’re calling it the 60th Anniversary Celebration.  By no means are we retiring, but after this tour, we are going to slow down a little bit.  The promoters are going to have to want us about three times more than they want us right now," he laughs.
 
As Larry says, "There are other priorities in life.  I have two granddaughters.  Brother Steve has seven grandchildren and Rudy has two kids.  We still love the fans and the road and we still love to sing but we want to spend more quality time with our families."
 
After performing together as children, Larry went off to college – studying law at the University of Houston.  In 1971, he auditioned for the legendary Imperials, Elvis' backup group.  He didn’t get the job, but he met Dottie West, who was the opening act for the legendary Jimmy Dean, who would become one of Larry's oldest and best friends.  Dottie was initially taken with Larry's resemblance to Nashville songwriter Mickey Newbury.  Dottie told him one night in her backstage dressing room at the Landmark Hotel in Las Vegas, "Larry, you look so much like Mickey Newbury, you've just got to be able to write great songs."  After the gig in Vegas, Larry went home to Houston, wrote eight songs, sent them to Dottie, and she sent him a plane ticket to Nashville.
 
Through Dottie, Larry met Kris Kristofferson, who became a champion of his talent as a writer and singer.  Kristofferson introduced Larry to Fred Foster at Monument Records which resulted in a contract with the record label.  His first album, The Pilgrim, was released later that year.  Johnny Cash, wrote the liner notes for his first album, and dubbed him "The Pilgrim," which is what he called Larry until the day he died.  Steve and Rudy moved to Nashville in 1975 and teamed up with brother Larry to form Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers.  By 1976, the Gatlin Brothers were in the fast lane, thanks to the chart-topping success of the Grammy-winning "Broken Lady."  The hits continued throughout the rest of the decade, with seven more number one songs: "I Don’t Wanna Cry," "I Just Wish You Were Someone I Love," "Statues Without Hearts," "Love Is Just A Game," "All The Gold in California," "Houston (Means I'm One Day Closer To You)" and "Night Time Magic."  In addition to being inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, the trio was nominated for awards by the Country Music Association, the Academy of Country Music and the Music City News Awards, among others.  "We won some of 'em too," notes Larry.
 
So, as Larry, Steve and Rudy close out one chapter of their lives, they are looking forward to the next one.  Larry says, "We're not cutting back because we can't draw a crowd or that we can't sing anymore.  Today, we sound just like we did 40 years ago.... pretty dad-burn good.  We're not being run out of the business.  We're not going broke.  We're not down to bread and milk money.  We just think it's time to do some other things, slow down a little bit, and do it with class and dignity – on our own terms.  We are grateful to God for our fabulous run and we can't wait to see what else He has in store." 
 
Today, the brothers announced the first leg of their 60th Anniversary Tour.  In addition, the brothers will soon release a new Gospel album on Curb Records, titled, Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers 60th Anniversary Celebration.  Larry says, "We were going to call the album, The Gospel According to Gatlin because some of the new songs are a little edgy, a little bit different.  Then we realized it was our 60th anniversary, so we went with that as the title."  And speaking of edgy, Larry says, "Steve and Rudy and I didn't get where we are by playing it safe.  We have always pushed the envelope, we have always crossed borders others were afraid to cross and we're not going to stop now... and that is the Gospel According to Gatlin."

JIMMY FORTUNE ON THE ROAD 2015

 
COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAMER JIMMY FORTUNE
TAKES HIS MUSIC ON THE ROAD IN BIG WAY IN 2015

 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (February 4, 2015) – He’s known as one of the most distinctive tenor singers in the history of Country Music, with a resume that includes CMA and IBMA Awards, Gold and Platinum records, and the highest honor one can achieve in the business – induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame. But, despite all those lofty honors, Jimmy Fortune is not one to simply rest on his laurels. He has just announced his tour schedule for 2015, and dates are filling fast – whether as part of the Country Gold series, or an intimate acoustic set with Jimmy.

Fortune first came to the attention of Country Music fans in 1982, when he was selected to replace Lew DeWitt as the tenor singer of the legendary Statler Brothers. The singer spent two decades with the group until their retirement in October 2002. Fortune’s songwriting helped to give the quartet some of their biggest hits, such as “Elizabeth,” “My Only Love,” “Too Much On My Heart” and “More Than A Name On A Wall.” Since embarking on a solo career, Fortune has released the well-received albums When One Door Closes and I Believe. He also continues to flourish as a songwriter, with collaborations with such tunesmiths as Bill Anderson, Kenny Beard, and Kevin Denney. It was with Denney and Tom Botkin that he wrote “On The Other Side,” which was recorded by Bluegrass superduo Dailey and Vincent, and netted the trio an award for Recorded Gospel Song of the Year from the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA).
