JOHN BERRY AND STILL STANDING

JOHN BERRY CELEBRATES 20th ANNIVERSARY OF "STANDING ON THE EDGE OF GOODBYE" ... AND STILL STANDING!
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 9, 2015) – His music stands as a soundtrack of what was being played on Country Radio in the 1990s, and two decades later, John Berry is breathing new life into his heartfelt lyrics with the release of Songs and Stories, a program style book in which the veteran performer talks about the meaning of some of his favorite songs – from his own pen, as well as others.

The book begins with “Standing On The Edge Of Goodbye,” which the South Carolina native shares a story about a conversation he had with another friend who sought John’s marital advice– fortunately the couple is still together. 2015 marks twenty years since the release of the single, which peaked at No. 1 on the Radio & Records Country Singles chart and No. 2 on the Billboard Country Singles chart. Other Berry radio staples included in the book include “If I Had Any Pride Left At All” and “Your Love Amazes Me,” which earned the soulful singer his first chart-topper in 1994.

But, Songs and Stories is about much more than just simply hit records. Take, for example, “Salvation,” a song that was included on his 1999 Lyric Street album Wildest Dreams, and actually became a favorite of many truck drivers going to and from their destinations at night. There’s his touching story of “O Holy Night,” and the effect it has had on his family – as well as “Annie’s Song,” the epic 70s ballad from John Denver that served as such an inspiration to Berry. He also talks about leaving the backstage area following a Denver show much too early – which still stands as one of his biggest regrets.

Also included in the collection are rare photos of John, wife Robin, and their family, as well as his father Jim and mother Marie, who both figure prominently into his thoughts on “Forty Again.”

CD: LEX K My - First Song

LEX K
My First Song
Sequel to the Judas Bullocks - Boundary Rider Troy - My Heartache Just Started Up Again - Ripped Off - Rolling Down The Road - My First Song - Kidman Jillaroos - The Only Man to Come Between Us - Old Train Tracks - Good Friends - To Remember It All - Just Another Show
 
The good news is that Lex K is making plans to be at the LeMars Festival this year.  He's an incredible songwriter, eleven of the thirteen songs on this album are his.  Lex knows what country music songwriting is all about.  Every one of his songs has a 'story' in it, and 12 of the 13 songs on this album are written by Lex.   He makes his home in Australia, and sings about his life there, about his friends, about his experiences.  He has a very likable voice, easy to listen to and easy to understand.  I really enjoyed his song "My First Song" and along with this very nice piece of songwriting, inside on the insert is a picture of the old Munna Creek Hall, where Lex actually did sing his first song.  The building is old, a bit faded in the paint and a bit rusty on the tin roof, but it must surely contain some incredible memories being out there in the hinter lands of Australia.  It was built in 1912, and I wonder if it isn't still being used. The grass around it is all neatly mown, and it still has awnings above the entry doors.  Lex also uses very good musicians on his recordings for Kross Kut Records, who have a lot of genuine country music artists working for them.  In this session, Lex plays rhythm guitar, but is also joined by Lindsay Waddington and Charley Boyter.  Charley is an old friend, he once came to the LeMars festival and we enjoyed him profusely.  On the bass is Neil Buttsworth and Grant Hart.  Drums features Lindsay Waddington.  Grant Hart on piano and strings; Lawrie Minson on steel guitar, Dobro, banjo, and harp; Hugh Curtis on fiddle and mandolin (excellent work throughout); and Mark Rigney on banjo.  Backup singers were Anita Ree (who also sings on one of the songs) and Dan Manning.  A nicely done, thoroughly enjoyable album of 'real' country music, so different from today's run-of-the-mill so-called country from Nashville.  What a pleasant experience to open up a new CD (at least new for me), and hear some terrific music, 'real' music, 'real' country.  I'll be sending this CD off to the Rural Roots Music Commission, who I have also sent one other Lex K album for this year's consideration.  We'll be looking forward to this very nice country music representative from Australia.

CD: PETER TRENHOLM - Our Tribute to Hank Williams

PETER TRENHOLM
Our Tribute to Hank Williams
VOCALS BY PETER TRENHOLM: Our Tribute to Hank Williams, Baby We're Really In Love - Settin' The Woods On Fire - Nobody's Lonesome For Me - I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry - I Could Never Be Ashamed Of You - Take These Chains From My Heart - They'll Never Take Her Love From Me - MUSIC BY GEORGE LONGARD:  You Win Again - Cold Cold Heart - Window Shoppin' - Hey Good Lookin' - Your Cheatin' Heart - A Mansion On The Hill - I Won't Be Home No More
 
A couple years ago Peter Trenholm made the trek to the LeMars Festival all the way from Newfoundland.  His presence was instant.  His incredible dedication and love for Hank Williams music is so very obvious the first time you hear him sing.  He was an instant hit at the festival, and he returned home with a suitcase of memories.  Not much later, he met again an old friend, George Longard a terrific guitarist in the Hank Williams style.  Together they blended their skills to produce this really neat Hank Williams tribute album.  Peter does not 'sound like' Hank Williams, nor does he try.  He has his own voice and uses it well.  His emphasis is always at the right spot, and actually re-sells the terrific gift of Hank Williams songwriting abilities.  The songs stand on their own, and Peter uses his dedicated voice to re-introduce some terrific country music.  Hank Williams certainly was 'country' music in his day, and I'm pretty sure if he could hear how the word 'country' has been hijacked by today's modern singers, he would be very disappointed in what he heard.  There is a lot of controversy surrounding what is and what isn't country music today.  For those that 'know' Hank Williams songs, there is no doubt.  For those that have been short changed and have never had the opportunity to know what 'real' country music is all about, are definitely the losers.  Yes of course 'change' is inevitable, but destruction of a musical genre isn't really 'change' it's just a hijacking technique using an already established fan base to further the cause of a completely different genre of music.  According to Peter Trenholm and George Longard, the original 'genre' is safe and completely re-established for anyone who cares to listen.  This entire CD is a very well thought out and very well recorded session.  I wish there were more of these going around, but country radio has been hijacked too.  This in itself has become controversial, even in Nashville.  Some important people are scratching their heads, 'wondering' what happened to country music?
