JUSTIN MOORE HONORED WITH ARKANSAS TRAVELER AWARD

COUNTRY SUPERSTAR JUSTIN MOORE HONORED BY HOMETOWN WITH 2015 ARKANSAS TRAVELER AWARD
Justin Moore & Asa Hutchinson

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 31, 2015) – He sings about his love for small-towns, and it’s clear those small towns love him back. With multiple No. 1 chart-toppers and several national tours under his belt, country superstar and “Small Town U.S.A.” hit-maker Justin Moore has never forgotten where he came from. Last weekend, the Poyen, Arkansas native was honored with the prestigious “Arkansas Traveler Award” from his home state, recognizing the love and support he displays for the state he calls home.

Pictured to the right, Moore was presented with the award by Arkansas Governor, Asa Hutchinson, during a hometown celebration in Poyen last weekend.

To say Moore has a love for Arkansas is an understatement. One simple Internet search will spawn countless records of Moore expressing admiration for his home state and their many sports teams, especially the Razorbacks. Moore’s pride in Arkansas and rural life have made an impact on his music, especially his first No. 1 hit “Small Town USA,” which he co-wrote while feeling homesick after moving to Nashville. In 2014, Moore and his family moved back to Arkansas, where they still reside today.

The Arkansas General Assembly created the “Arkansas Traveler Certificate” in 1941, to honor both out-of-state visitors and Arkansas natives who have a love and appreciation for the so-called “Natural State.” The name for the award was spawned by the 1800’s William Cumming tune, “The Arkansas Traveller and Rackinsac Waltz” – which inspired one of the most recorded songs in American history, “Arkansas Traveler.” Since, the term has been used in all facets of Arkansas life including: a minor league baseball team followed by the professional team, the Arkansas Travelers, a nationally distributed humor magazine, and the inspiration behind many works of art and books.

Country Music Most Wanted Single Married

 
THE OAK RIDGE BOYS' WILLIAM LEE GOLDEN WEDS SIMONE STALEY
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 31, 2015) – The Oak Ridge Boys' William Lee Golden is no longer a single man. The Country Music Hall of Fame inductee and country music legend known for his deep baritone voice married Simone Staley in a private ceremony among a small group of close family and friends in Nashville, Saturday, August 29. Celebrities in attendance of course included Golden's confidantes, Duane Allen, Richard Sterban and Joe Bonsall of The Oak Ridge Boys, among others.  

The two long-time friends' love story, captured by journalist Matt Bjorke on WilliamLeeGolden.com, is straight out of a fairytale, having re-kindled their friendship after 27 years.

At the age of 18, Staley purchased the Oak Ridge Boys' Together album and was instantly drawn to the picture of Golden on the front of the album cover. She somehow felt as if she would meet him someday, and by the fall of that same year, she was sitting in the front row at her first Oak Ridge Boys concert. Golden threw a scarf her way, and she happened to catch it, as if the two were destined from day one.

In October of 1980, the two finally met at a show at Knott's Berry Farm, and the attraction was instant. They would spend time together over the next couple of years, however, their lives went in two different directions after a show in 1982, and they lost touch.

Fast forward to May of 2009, when they both had recently lost their mothers, they reignited their friendship and bonded over their mutual love of art and painting. Simone painted a portrait of Golden, which she gave to him back in the 80s, that he held on to for all of those years — and even pulled from the destruction after his home was destroyed by a tornado. It was the memory of her that he saw when he looked at it.

"Although it was a portrait of me, I could see her face every time I saw that painting," said Golden.

"I had always wondered if he held onto that painting," said Staley. "It was probably silly to do so, but I just felt very strongly about it after pouring my heart and soul into it."

By summer of 2013, Golden invited Simone to come to Tennessee and go to Alabama and Florida with him to visit family and friends. The time spent traveling together allowed them to get to know one another even better, and it was that trip that solidified what they already knew – that they couldn't be without each other."

The two plan to reside in their home they found together in 2013 in Middle Tennessee with their loving pets — happily ever after.

"It's been the most beautiful experience, together," Golden said.

Country Music News International Radio Show and DJ Anja Kristin Krone in the spotlight of the media

 Country Music News International Radio Show and 

DJ Anja Kristin Krone in the spotlight of the media



Anja Krone is working actively to spread knowledge of her absorbing passion – Country Music. Anja is the DJ and sends live radio via www.countrykanalen.se (country channel sweden) and  www.radiomedusa.com (Netherlands). In addition cooperate Anja with a German/English internet magazin "country music news international" which takes to the CMA (country radio seminar) in Nashville every year and interviews artists and bands. These interviews will be used in the radio program the Country Music News International Radio Show. But why engage as much in Country Music?  "I've been listening to country music most of my life, and have always been fascinated by" a man and his guitar ". I interests me for country music, because it is a music generation with many facets and "3cords and the truth" stories about life's hardships, joys and longings do that you often can relate to one's own life. But it took in earnest, when I began to line dance. Here I figured that we had to dance to country music. I wondered that there was no dance to the Danish bands, and began to look round on MySpace / Reverbnation after Danish country artists/bands, and shared their music on my Facebook profile, "says Anja and continues: "In 2012, I was lucky enough to get tickets to an American" newcountry "band Lady Antebellum. At that time, Lady A huge in the United States, and was surprised (again) over that there was only approximately 1000 to the concert in Copenhagen, and that they were not on the morning / evening tv now that they were in Copenhagen ". Later that year, Anja admitted to the hospital. But there were further encouraged to go active into it to convey the Country Music. "My my room mate, an elderly woman, asked what it was for some music I was listening to. It turned out that she was the daughter of the head of "His Masters Voice", and had met all the great musicians through the ages. She thought that I should "just do it" with sharing and writing about country music, "says Anja. Since Anja came home from the hospital, she was contact by Per Gyllingberg from Countrykanalen Sweden. Per would have like to have Anja to make radio programs on his online radio, with a focus on Scandinavian/Danish bands and new bands (unsigned) from the United States. And since then, the development surged and Anja known as one who cares for Country music in Denmark. "I think that country music are " overlooked "in the Danish media, or sometimes, especially with the new genre within CM, marked with genre titles such as folk, Americana, rock, pop, sing/songwriter instead of just" Country ". And worst is it when Country music are looked down upon like the topeng or that you have to go with Stetsonhat and cowboy boots to hear Country music, "says Anja Anja is almost on a mission, and has a clear goal of his work. "I would very much like to be involved in starting a 24/7 online radio up in Denmark, where it will be Danish/Scandinavian/European bands and artists that will be played. radio will also get more of the American artists and bands to get past Denmark, when they are on tour in Europe, "says Anya and concludes: "I wish that there will be one or two Country Music festivals to Sealand, (there are 3 in Jutland )and the Danish national radio and television stations would tray more up on the genre, when we have American / foreign band in Denmark."
