ERIC CHURCH EXHIBIT OPENING AT COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME® AND MUSEUM SEPT 18

ERIC CHURCH EXHIBIT OPENING AT COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME® AND MUSEUM SEPT 18

Singer Will Re-Open The Outsiders’ Joint July 30-Aug.1; The Pop-Up Store Coincides with His Two Sold-Out Concerts Christening Nashville’s New Ascend Amphitheater on July 30-31

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (July 28, 2015) – Musical road warrior Eric Church, last year’s top selling country music artist, will be honored by the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum when he becomes the subject of their next cameo exhibition opening Sept. 18. “Eric Church: Inside the Outsider” runs through February 2016 and will spotlight the North Carolina native’s hard-hitting path from a kid with a dream to becoming a multi-Platinum-selling country rocker filling arenas, amphitheaters and stadiums. The display will include guitars, song manuscripts, stage wear, photos and more personally chosen from Church’s collection.

For those fans wanting to see and purchase unique Church memorabilia before September arrives, the acclaimed singer/songwriter will reopen his pop-up store, The Outsider’s Joint, on July 30-Aug. 1 in East Nashville. The Outsider’s Joint will also offer These Boots by Lucchese, Church’s custom boot line usually only available to VIP ticketholders. In addition, there will be a limited number of special edition posters commemorating the first Ascend Amphitheater show and Church’s regular line of tour merchandise, most available with concierge service to ship items to your home for free. Proceeds, excluding the Lucchese boots, will benefit the Chief Cares Fund, a 501c3 non-profit organized by Church and his wife Katherine that serves more than 2.5 million people around the world. The Outsider’s Joint’s first appearance during CMA Music Festival was a smash success that raised more than $20,000 for Church’s Chief Cares Fund.

The Outsider’s Joint will be located at 218 South 11th Street in the 5 Points area of East Nashville across from the Bill Martin Grocery Store. Park at LP Field and receive a free ride to 5 Points (excluding tip) from JoyRide by calling (615) 285-9835, or use Uber code OUTSIDERS for $20 off your first ride. While there, a handful of local restaurants have special food and drink offers for those with Ascend Amphitheater tickets. The pop-up store hours are 12:00 PM-6:00 PM Thursday and Friday, and 10:00 AM-2:00 PM Saturday.

Church will christen Nashville’s new outdoor Ascend Amphitheater on July 30-31, making a rare second stop in Music City this year to perform two sold-out acoustic solo sets. He set a venue record in January when 18,411 fans crammed into Bridgestone Arena to catch The Outsiders World Tour, which is nearing one million tickets sold, has set five venue attendance records, and was ranked No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Tours recap in April.

THE KENTUCKY HEADHUNTERS ANNOUNCE FALL 2015 TOUR


THE KENTUCKY HEADHUNTERS ANNOUNCE FALL 2015 TOUR
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 28, 2015) – GRAMMY® award-winning Southern blues-rockers, The Kentucky Headhunters, have announced 25 new tour dates to wrap up the summer and bring their rowdy, high-energy shows to fans nationwide well into fall. Long considered "Southern Rock Royalty" and credited for creating a hybrid of honky-tonk, blues, and southern rock that appeals to listeners of both rock and country music, The Kentucky Headhunters have tallied hits such as, "Dumas Walker," "Walk Softly On This Heart Of Mine," and "Oh, Lonesome Me.”

The long-haired boys from Edmonton, Kentucky, (Richard Young, Fred Young, Greg Martin and Doug Phelps), hit the road August through December on the tails of their latest album release, Meet Me in Bluesland, which hit stores on June 2 and is a collaborative effort of previously unreleased, original material featuring late, great pianist Johnnie Johnson — a Rock N Roll Hall of Famer and keyboardist for Chuck Berry. Meet Me In Bluesland showcases The Kentucky Headhunters' familiar blues influence on a whole new level, and the album has created a momentum, fueled by its No. 1 Billboard Blues Album debut and top placement on the Billboard Americana Chart, that continues to carry the group into the upcoming dates.

Touting longevity many other acts can only dream of, The Kentucky Headhunters will take their 47 years of experience on the road affording fans the chance to catch what Billboard calls, “The Great American Rock ‘N’ Roll Band,” at the following upcoming stops:

Moonshine Bandits Multi-City "Blacked Out Tour" Kicks Off August 5

Moonshine Bandits' Blacked Out Lands in the Top 15 on
Billboard's Country Albums Chart
 Multi-City "Blacked Out Tour" Kicks Off August 5


July 28, 2015, Nashville, TN….Los Banos, California duo, Moonshine Bandits, land inside the Top 15 on Billboard's Country Albums chart this week at #13 with Blacked Out. The Bandits kick off their “Blacked Out” multi-city Tour August 5-August 28, 2015. 
The new Backroad Records' album, released July 17, has been garnering positive reviews by fans and critics alike. Fans continue to embrace Moonshine Bandits' unique country sound as evidenced by attendance numbers at their live shows, and a corresponding increase in social media numbers (305,000 Facebook “Likes”).  In addition, this release marks a 50% increase in sales from the duo's previous album.
In celebration of the release of Blacked Out, Moonshine Bandits' Tex and Bird stopped by the local Walmart in Ceres, California for an in-store appearance. The duo met with and signed autographs for hundreds of their Shiner-Nation fans who showed up in support on Blacked Out.
“For more than a decade, these guys have been performing and gaining momentum all around the U.S. and by the sound of this album, they aren’t slowing down anytime soon. With tracks that honor the blue collar way…it’s bound to be a hit success.” …The Music Universe
"4 out of 5 stars"….Nashville Country Club
"We are fired up that our CD made the Top #15 Billboard Country Albums Chart! The market for all CD sales has trended downward by 30% so for our album to trend upward is absolutely badass. This is proof that we are going to be around for a long time and how powerful our Shiner Family is, especially since we are charting next to artists that are on radio and TV daily," commented Tex. "It also proves that we don't have to change our style or conform to mainstream trends.  We did this without a million-dollar marketing budget, so this is a proud day for us and the Shiner Nation."
"Blacked Out breaks all boundaries and crosses many genres.  The other side is the Blacked Out theme portrays our go hard party lifestyle.  We make all-American drinking anthems," stated Bird.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 28, 2015) – Parallel Management and Parallel Music Publishing is proud to announce the signing of country artist Alex Hall to their roster for both personal management and publishing representation.

We are so excited to have Alex Hall join our team,” says Tim Hunze. “We knew he was a star the minute he picked up the guitar and sang. We are looking forward to helping him fulfill his dreams."

Hall, a native of Gainesville, Georgia, started showing his love of music as early as three years old – when the youngster picked up a toy guitar and performed the Elvis Presley classic “Blue Suede Shoes” for family and friends. The singer started taking guitar lessons at age fourteen, and by his senior year in high school, he was playing 175 shows a year. Since moving to Nashville in March of 2014, Hall has spent the past two years honing his craft as a vocalist and as a tunesmith. He says that Parallel seems like the right fit.

“I met with a lot of different people, and it’s good when you have somebody in your corner who is working as hard – if not harder – than you are, every day of the week. It’s an incredible feeling to have such a great team who is behind working hard, and believing in you as well,” he said. “I met with several publishing and management companies. Tim Hunze and Hannah Showmaker are such wonderful people. They have been doing so well with other writers and artists, and everyone I’ve talked to about them says that when you walk into Parallel, it feels like home. It truly does feel like a family over there, and I am so glad to be working with them.”

Already in his career, Alex Hall has opened for the likes of Scotty McCreery, Jana Kramer, and Thomas Rhett.

Denny Strickland Video "How Far You Wanna Go"

Denny Strickland Video "How Far You Wanna Go" 
 NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 28, 2015) – Taste of Country premieres Country newcomer Denny Strickland's sizzling "How Far You Wanna Go" video today. Producer/Actress Lindsey Labadie (Where The Red Fern Grows, Removed, Desert Friends) helmed the project and drew on the talents of director Caleb Kuhl (Wu-Tang Clan, Tedashii, Dylan Scott) and Emmy Award-winning Director of Photography Isaac Alongi (National Geographic, BBC, Discovery) to round out the visual feast.

Strickland looks confident crooning seductively from a towering Nashville rooftop, while a pair of comely young actors energetically engage the viewer with their on-the-road adventures throughout. Sparse Mojave Desert and Lancaster, California scenery focuses the eye on the couple, and brings a sense of quiet urgency to the song's title. Denny loves the video process he says, "because you're painting a picture for the listener. I also enjoy editing; digging through eight hours of film to find the perfect 'diamond-in-the-rough' two-and-a-half minutes." The fast chart-rising single, "How Far You Wanna Go," follows his recent Top 40 MusicRow hit, "Swerve On."

An Arkansas native, Denny made his CMA Music Festival debut this year with booth signings at the AT&T U-verse® Fan Fair X, and performances at various Music City hot spots. He is currently on a radio promotion tour for the new single, and recent features can be found on the following sites: Billboard, CMA Close Up, MusicRow and Country Music Matters.

ABOUT DENNY STRICKLAND
Denny's early career was guided by The Statler Brothers' longtime manager (and Bass player for Johnny Cash), Marshall Grant. Strickland soon found himself sharing the stage with legends Kris Kristofferson, Rosanne Cash and George Jones. With Grant's passing in 2011, he took a brief hiatus; regrouping and re-focusing his efforts. An accomplished guitarist and keyboardist, Denny has firmly thrown his hat back in the ring. He's touring regularly and rising to national prominence with the success of hit single/video "Swerve On." A former American Quarter Horse Association World Champion Western Pleasure winner (2007), Strickland enjoys riding for pleasure - on both his beloved horses and in his cherished 1968 Camaro.
