TG SHEPPARD BRINGS THE STAR-POWER

TG Sheppard: Legendary Friends & Country Duets
Album Features Collaborations with George Jones, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Conway Twitty, Engelbert Humperdinck, Jerry Lee Lewis, Lorrie Morgan and Many More

Album Artwork, Track Listing, and Release Date of October 30th Announced

 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (September 8, 2015) – Since leaving home in 1961 to pursue a career in music, TG Sheppard has done it all. He scored a job as a promotions executive for RCA Records, where he became friends with Elvis Presley who believed in his talent so much that he gave him his first tour bus, topped the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart an astonishing 21 times, and left an everlasting mark on Country music. Over the years, the smooth singer/songwriter has made a lot of impressive friends, which inspired the vision for his upcoming album, Legendary Friends & Country Duets, which is set for release on Oct. 30 via Cleopatra Records. On the upcoming project, TG collaborates with some of the most influential artists of all-time and those that he can actually call his personal friends.

"In my 40 years of recording music, this album has to be my most favorite I've ever recorded," says T.G. Sheppard. "I'm very honored that so many of my personal friends came in to sing, with no questions asked, and gave their all."

Listeners will be taken on a journey, with songs that hit the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. Standout tracks on the album include the fun, “It’s A Man Thing” which features late country icon George Jones, the relaxing sing-along, “Song Man” with Grammy® winner Merle Haggard, and the inspiring, “In Texas” with country outlaw Willie Nelson. Legendary Friends & Country Duets will bring traditional country music back to the forefront, as the style currently makes a demanding comeback. With the remarkable list of guests on the album, Legendary Friends & Country Duets is a must-have for all music fans to remind them what made country music great.

"As a record company working multiple projects in all genres, it is always special to find an artist and project like what T.G. Sheppard has brought to Cleopatra Records," says Tim Yasui, GM/Cleopatra Records. "T.G. is loved within the Country music community and this project proves that his fanbase is much more than just the country music fans - his fellow artists love him, too! Albums like this come once in a lifetime and Cleopatra Records is very proud to be involved in this iconic recording."

Sheppard has already begun promoting the album, with several upcoming appearances already scheduled. Airing on September 13-14, NBC’s “Open House” will take viewers inside the stylish Nashville home of Sheppard and his wife, singer/songwriter Kelly Lang. The show is described as the ultimate insiders’ guide to real estate and home design. Next, offering fans a never-before-seen glimpse into the past, present and future of TG’s storied career, Sheppard will appear on Heartland-TV’s new show “Reflections” on Sept. 14 (check your local listings).

JEWEL’S NEW ALBUM, PICKING UP THE PIECES, AVAILABLE FRIDAY


JEWEL’S NEW ALBUM, PICKING UP THE PIECES, AVAILABLE FRIDAY
 
Singer-Songwriter-author to appear on The View, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Fox & Friends, Steve Harvey, Howard Stern, and NPR’s My Big Break, On Point with Tom Ashbrook, and Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me; first album in five years out Sept. 11 on Sugar Hill Records, New Memoir Blue Rider Press’ “Never Broken” follows Sept. 15

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (Sept. 8, 2015) – Jewel’s new album Picking Up the Pieces is receiving its worldwide debut Friday

 
The album is a personal return to her roots as a folk- and country-influenced singer-songwriter. The New York Times’ Best Selling author and poet also will be sharing her story through her new Blue Rider Press memoir, Never Broken: Songs Are Only Half the Story, due Sept. 15. The raw look at her struggles, even at the peak of her career, led Loretta Lynn to write, “Jewel’s Life in ‘Never Broken’ reminded me so much of my own. But if we hadn’t of come from hardship and nothing, we wouldn’t have made something out of ourselves.”

Jewel will celebrate the releases with a number of television appearances and book signings in the coming weeks. She’ll visit FOX News’ Fox & Friends on Sept. 14, ABC’s The View on Sept. 15, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live on Oct. 1 and Steve Harvey on Oct. 22. Additionally, Jewel will make appearances on The Howard Stern Show on Sept. 21 and NPR’s My Big Break, On Point with Tom Ashbrook, and Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me throughout September and October. Book signings begin Sept. 14 in New York and will include stops in Nashville, Boston, Denver, Phoenix and Los Angeles. She’s also appearing at this year’s AmericanaFest during the Americana Music Festival and Conference on Sept. 15 in Nashville.

Jewel’s 1995 release Pieces of You, recorded by Ben Keith at Neil Young’s home studio, should be considered a cornerstone of the current Americana and folk movements. The raw look at life on the edge buoyed by the hit “Who Will Save Your Soul” sold more than 12 million copies, but as Jewel chronicles in “Never Broken,” the time was far from happy. Picking Up the Pieces also covers difficult territory, and critics are responding.

“When the time came to make a new album, she wanted to get back to the vibe she captured on her debut and close the loop on Pieces of You with a bookend called Picking Up The Pieces.Entertainment Weekly writes. “The result is a remarkably raw, bracingly honest set of folk and Americana tunes that tap into both the remarkable spirit in her voice and her incredible lyrical honesty.”

Rhapsody’s review notes “Jewel proves she is the sum of her parts: Picking Up the Pieces lightly treads in the country terrain she fully explored on her last two albums, while returning to the folk-pop poetry of her Pieces of You debut...”

Picking Up the Pieces is Jewel’s first new adult-oriented album of studio material in five years. Keith has passed away, so Jewel took over production of the album herself, hiring a band comprised mostly of Young collaborators. The album comes after a difficult period that included her divorce and the birth of her first child. Picking Up the Pieces captures some of these moments on “Love Used to Be” and “Mercy,” and also gathers longtime unrecorded live favorites like “Carnivore” and “Boy Needs a Bike.” The album includes “My Father’s Daughter,” a stunning autobiographical collaboration with Dolly Parton.

50 Years of EXILE: The Story of a Band in Transition - Available now

50 Years of EXILE: The Story of a Band in Transition - Available now
50 Years of EXILE: The Story of a Band in Transition
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (September 8, 2015) – The story of one of the most successful bands in Country Music history has been documented with the recent release of the book 50 Years of Exile: The Story of a Band in Transition. Written by Randy Westbrook, an Eastern Kentucky University musicologist, the book details the group’s rise to prominence over the past five decades.

Founded in Richmond, Kentucky by Jimmy Stokley, Ronnie 'Mack' Davenport, Paul Smith, Mike Howard, Billy Luxon, Buzz Cornelison, and J.P. Pennington – while all were still in high school – the band found a following in the Lexington area. But, the Exile story doesn’t end there. A stint on the Dick Clark Caravan of Stars in the mid 1960s broadened their audience even more. During that stint, they opened for such Pop acts as the legendary B.J. Thomas.

Continuing to record and tour throughout the late 1960s and early 1970s, Exile’s star began to shine bright with the 1978 release of the single “Kiss You All Over.” After fifteen years in the business, the band was suddenly an “Overnight Success,” with the song hitting number one in the fall of 1978, and selling over 5 million singles. The single’s massive commercial success introduced Exile as the new opening act on the Aerosmith tour and then the Heart tour, respectively. The group followed up that hit with another Top 40 on the Hot 100, “You Thrill Me.”

In the 1980s, Pennington – along with members Sonny LeMaire and Les Taylor – began to have success a songwriter in Nashville with cuts by Alabama (“Take Me Down”), Kenny Rogers (“Take This Heart”), Janie Fricke (“It Ain’t Easy Bein’ Easy”). That, combined with the fact that their roots had always been steeped in Country (Pennington’s mother, Lily Mae Ledford, was one of the stars of the iconic Renfro Valley Barn Dance), led them to sign with Epic Records in 1983.

Their first single, “High Cost Of Leavin,” found success at radio, and set the stage for hit after hit throughout the decade. “Woke Up In Love” became their first chart-topper, and it was followed by songs such as “She’s Too Good To Be True,” “Hang On To Your Heart,” and “She’s A Miracle.”

50 Years In Exile: The Story of a Band in Transition is an honest look at one of America’s most enduring success stories, with anecdotes from many of the band’s former and current members, including Paul Martin, who later went on to fame as one of Marty Stuart’s Fabulous Superlatives.

Praise for the book has come from a variety of critics and fans, with Randy pinpoints individual performances, instruments as well as the members themselves. Steve Goetzman, longtime drummer of the band, stated “Randy pinpoints individual performances, instruments played and recording techniques used, all in fine detail, yet in a language music fans will enjoy reading. This musicologist’s analysis of song after Exile song intertwined with an accurate history of a 50-year-old band might set a new standard for music reviewers. Colorful personalities, career-shaping decisions and solutions for longevity are talked about here.”

Keyboardist Marlon Hargis says the book was educational – even for him, “I learned things about the band that I never knew before! An interesting history of Exile from a musician’s viewpoint. I recommend it to any Exile fan, or any budding musician wanting a realistic depiction of a band’s life!”

Published by Acclaim Press, 50 Years of Exile: The Story of a Band in Transition is available in select bookstores and Amazon. The band continues to tour in 2015, with dates already being added to their itinerary for 2016.
