KENNY ROGERS WITH "ARTIST OF A LIFETIME" AWARD


CMT Artists of the Year 2015

Biggest Names in Music, Film and Television to Toast and Pay Homage To Honorees Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt and Little Big Town
  NASHVILLE, Tenn. (November 17, 2015) – Today, CMT announced that legendary country superstar Kenny Rogers will receive the prestigious “Artist of a Lifetime” award presented by Ram Trucks during the sixth annual “CMT Artists of the Year,” the definitive year-end party, live from Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville on Wednesday, December 2 at 8pm ET/PT. Rogers is only the second recipient of the award with Merle Haggard receiving the inaugural honor in 2014.

"You go through your life and your career and you try to do the right things and make the right decisions. You don’t always do that, but I have been very lucky. I am grateful for it all. This is a great honor and one I highly treasure. Being in with Merle Haggard on anything is always a thrill. To CMT, the fans, and all who made this incredible award possible, I can’t thank you enough,” said Rogers.

The sixth-annual 90-minute special will feature once-in-a-lifetime performances, unexpected tributes and unforgettable toasts as the biggest stars of music, film and television gather to celebrate the five artists selected by CMT as the top artists of the year: Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt and Little Big Town. These artists collectively dominated the last 12 months ruling CMT’s platforms and country radio, scoring chart-topping album and singles, and selling out arenas around the country. Additional performers, presenters, and special guests will be announced at a later date.

They join an overgrowing prestigious list of past “CMT Artists of the Year” honorees that includes Jason Aldean (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013), Kenny Chesney (2011, 2012), Eric Church (2012), Hunter Hayes (2013), Toby Keith (2012), Lady Antebellum (2010, 2011), Miranda Lambert (2012, 2014), Tim McGraw (2013), Brad Paisley (2011), Taylor Swift (2010, 2011), Carrie Underwood (2010, 2012), Keith Urban (2014) and Zac Brown Band (2010).

Previous “CMT Artist of the Year” performances have included Adele and Darius Rucker performing Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now,” Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan’s mashup of “Oh No” and “All Night Long,” and Maroon 5 covering Taylor Swift’s “Mine.” The show has featured appearances by Ellen DeGeneres, Matthew McConaughey, Selena Gomez, Billy Bob Thornton, Roger Clemens, Morgan Freeman and more.

The past several years have been some of the most active and rewarding of Country Music Hall of Fame member and one of the best-selling music artists of all time, Kenny Rogers,’ entire career. Having recently announced his retirement from touring on NBC's Today show, he is gearing up for a worldwide farewell tour bringing his legendary music one last time to fans across the globe. On Nov. 11, Rogers embarked on his 34th Christmas & Hits tour in support of his latest Christmas album, Once Again It's Christmas (Warner Bros. / Warner Music Nashville). In 2013, he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame and received the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award at the 47th Annual CMA Awards.

To date, Rogers has sold more than 120 million albums worldwide. He has charted a record within each of the last seven decades. The first country artist to consistently sell out arenas, Rogers quickly became a pop superstar as well — his 28 Billboard Adult Contemporary Top 10's rank him fourth-best of all time among men, trailing only Elton John, Neil Diamond, and Elvis Presley. Rogers has recorded 12 No. 1 albums and 24 No. 1 hits and is the RIAA’s eighth best–selling male solo artist of all time. He has received three GRAMMY Awards, 11 People's Choice Awards, 19 American Music Awards, eight Academy of Country Music awards and six Country Music Association awards.

BEAR FAMILY RECORDS CELEBRATES 40TH ANNIVERSARY

BEAR FAMILY RECORDS CELEBRATES 40TH ANNIVERSARY WITH AN HISTORIC BOXED-SET RELEASE
Holste-Oldendorf, Germany (November 17, 2015) – Bear Family Records – the German-based independent record label that has served music fans around the world with some of the most comprehensive collections in all of music – is celebrating its’ 40th anniversary this fall.

Founded by music historian Richard Weize, the company’s first release was 1975’s Going Back to Dixie by Bill Clifton. Since then, the company has issued multi-CD packages and box sets of a wide array of artists and genres, ranging from R&B acts like Screamin’ Jay Hawkins and Eartha Kitt to Pop legends Dean Martin and Doris Day to and Country icons, such as Porter Wagoner and Dolly Parton.

Country Music Hall of Fame member Bill Anderson has nothing but the utmost respect for the care that Bear Family puts into their work. The Grand Ole Opry star was the subject of a 2011 set issued by the label - Bill Anderson: The First Ten Years, and says he was thoroughly impressed with the attention paid to his music.

“They have the reputation of doing the best box sets of anyone in the business,” he said. “I had wanted a box set for the past few years, and wanted Bear Family to be the ones to do it. When I listened to the music, there was a lot of it that I hadn't heard in a long time."

Through the work of Bear Family Records, it is possible to secure the entire recorded catalog of iconic artists such as Jimmie Rodgers, Hank Snow, and Bill Monroe. Perhaps two of their most-extensive collections are In The Shadow Of Clinch Mountain – an incredible 12-CD collection of the complete recordings by the Original Carter Family, as well as The Honky Tonk Years, a 10-disc collection containing the complete recordings of Ray Price through 1966.

The label also has delved into the obscure with their collections. Perhaps one of the most interesting releases by the label was a four-CD collection of songs related to the legendary television favorite Bonanza – including Christmas On The Ponderosa, a rare 1963 Yuletide platter that features recordings from all four of the Cartwright family – Lorne Greene, Dan Blocker, Pernell Roberts, and Michael Landon. Bear Family has also released several single disc sets, focusing on hit recordings by acts such as Don Gibson or And the Answer Is – a collection of three single discs containing many of the greatest answer songs in Country Music history – including “He’ll Have To Stay” by Jeannie Black, and Jean Shepard’s rarity “The Only Mama That’ll Walk The Line.”

The label is also well-respected for their lavishly-researched books that go along with each of their box sets. Whether it be Barry Mazor’s explanation of the music and life of Connie Smith or Rich Kienzle’s in-depth account of Buck Owens and the Bakersfield Sound, music fans get not only an audio delight for the ears, but also get to learn about the history of the music. Each set also includes a detailed discography of the recordings involved, including the dates, the times, and the instrumentalists on each track. That’s worth the price of sets alone, says Billboard’s Chuck Dauphin, who has written articles on many of the individual packages the label has released.

“The music is the drawing power, of course, but when you read a Buck Owens discography, and see the name James Burton involved on several tracks – it gives you a unique spin on the history of the music, which is priceless,” he said.

And, from that first release four decades ago, the company’s inventory continues to grow, with the label’s catalog containing approximately 1,500 in-print releases including 300 CD boxed sets w/ comprehensive books (LP-size), a wide assortment of historical music DVDs, a selection of high-profile 180-gram vinyl LPs, and even several 45s to round things out.

Bear Family Records continues to plow new musical ground. For a detailed listing of all of their releases, go to www.bear-family.com

The Cains Merry Christmas To You

 
The Cains Release New Original Holiday Track, “Merry Christmas To You”

(Nashville, Tenn. – Nov. 16, 2015) – In spirit of the holiday, The Cains have released a new seasonal song, titled “Merry Christmas To You.” The original, thoughtful ballad, which was written by Billy Lawson and Ed Hill, as well as produced by Billy Lawson, is about missing a loved one during the holiday season.

Madison Cain commented, "When you think of Christmas songs, you think of joy, family and everything merry and bright. But for so many people, Christmas isn't perfect. Relationships have been severed and the most wonderful time of the year often brings its own sting. We hope this song encourages people to reach out, make the call they've been putting off, or write a letter—it’s never too late to say ‘I love you.’"

The song is already available at digital outlets such as iTunes and Amazon and will be distributed to Country radio.

The talented siblings have had a busy year with the release of their self-titled EP, which includes the lead single “Journeys End;” a sentimental ballad about love, family and hope that is currently airing on Country radio and spent over four months on Sirius XM’s The Highway playlist. The EP was written by The Cains – Madison, Logan and Taylor Cain – and also features other writer credits including Jaida Dreyer, Stephony Smith, Billy Lawson, Ed Hill, Becki Devries and Dave Thompson. The Cains was produced/mixed by Daniel Agee and is now available on iTunesAmazon and other major digital retailers.

In addition to the EP, The Cains have been touring the U.S. and the U.K. In March 2015, The Cains broke onto the U.K. Country music scene with their first international appearance at London’s Country to Country (C2C) festival, Europe’s largest and most well-attended Country music event of the year, and have since returned as the opening act for Sasha McVeigh’s I Stand Alone U.K. tour, opening on select dates that took them to London, Glasgow, Oxford, Manchester and more.

STURGILL SIMPSON für zwei Solo Termine in Deutschland

US Country-Star STURGILL SIMPSON für zwei Solo Termine in Deutschland

Es geht ein Ruck durch die amerikanische Country-Szene. STURGILL SIMPSON sorgt mit seinen unkonventionellen und erfrischenden Klängen für Aufsehen und fegt mit frischem Wind durch das traditionelle Genre. Im Januar 2016 kommt der Künstler für zwei Shows nach Hamburg und Berlin.

Mitte 2014 veröffentlichte STURGILL SIMPSON sein zweites Album Metamodern Sounds In Country Music. Entgegengesetzt der herkömmlichen Inspirationsquellen nahm er die Ideen für seine Songs aus alten und neuen christlichen Texten, Abhandlungen zur aktuellen Quantenphysik und Stringtheorie sowie Literatur zur Philosophie und Astronomie. STURGILL SIMPSON verbindet oftmals Classic Country, Bluegrass und Rock mit elektronischen Einflüssen um Klanglandschaften zu schaffen. Für elektronische Musik hegt er, nach eigener Aussage, „einen kleinen Fetisch“. Kürzlich wurde er in Nashville für sein Album mit dem renommierten Americana Preis zum Besten Künstler des Jahres ausgezeichnet.

Seine Originalität verschaffte STURGILL SIMPSON große Aufmerksamkeit in den USA und verhalf ihm zu Auftritten auf legendären Festivals wie dem Coachella, Bonnaroo oder Lollapalooza. Der Rolling Stone nannte den Auftritt von STURGILL SIMPSON: „[…] überwältigend und mitreißend!“ Das deutsche Publikum darf sich somit auf ausgelassene Konzerte des Country-Musikers im nächsten Jahr freuen.

Tickets für die Konzerte sind ab Dienstag, den 17.11.15, 10 Uhr an allen bekannten VVK-Stellen erhältlich.
