Guitarist and Composer Pete Huttlinger Dead at 54

Guitarist and Composer Pete Huttlinger Dead at 54
Played Lead Guitar for John Denver, Bounced Back from Physical Catastrophes

Nashville, TN January 15, 2016 -- Guitarist, composer and medical marvel Pete Huttlinger died today (Friday, Jan. 15) at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville at the age of 54.  He was surrounded in his final hours by family, friends, fellow musicians and a corps of doctors who had kept him alive and performing for years against all odds.
The cause of death was a stroke.
Before he emerged as a solo artist in the late 1990s, Huttlinger was best known as John Denver’s lead guitar player.  He would continue to tour with such major acts as LeAnn Rimes and John Oates of Hall & Oates. 
Born with a rare heart defect, Huttlinger underwent a series of operations, beginning as a teenager, that ultimately failed to normalize the heart’s functions.  In 2010, he suffered a stroke that his doctors initially thought would permanently immobilize him.  But with characteristic determination, he returned to playing within three weeks.  His first performance was for his incredulous doctors.
Soon after, he suffered a heart failure so catastrophic that it kept him at the Texas Heart Institute in Houston for four months in 2011.  Again, he worked his way back, first to proficiency and then to mastery of his instrument.  He and his wife and manager, Erin Morris, chronicled his ordeal and recovery in their 2015 memoir, Joined at the Heart: A Story of Love, Guitars, Resilience and Marigolds.
In the four years following his stay in Houston, Huttlinger toured, recorded and conducted guitar camps.  In addition, he gave inspirational talks to medical, military and civic groups on the topic, “Don’t Just Live: Live Well.”  His last musical performance was in Atlanta on Jan. 9, only two days before his final hospitalization. 
Peter John Huttlinger was born June 22, 1961 in Washington, D. C., the youngest son of Joseph Bernard Huttlinger, a White House correspondent and trade journalist, and Mary Elizabeth Walker Huttlinger.  He first became fascinated with music at the age of nine when a visiting brother-in-law introduced him to folk style five-string banjo playing.
After Joseph Huttlinger’s death in 1964, Huttlinger’s family moved to northern California and then to New Bern, North Carolina, by which time he had begun performing and seriously studying music.  His skill as a guitarist earned him admission to the elite Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he moonlighted after classes by playing bluegrass music in the city’s subways.  He graduated with honors in 1984 and moved to Nashville.  There he busied himself with every musical job he could pick up, from recording demos for songwriters to playing in bands at the Opryland USA amusement park.
Huttlinger connected with Denver in 1994 after Denver’s producer heard him playing on a recording session.  He toured the world with Denver as his lead guitarist for the next four years, played on various of his recordings and appeared on his TV specials.
In 2000, Huttlinger won the National Fingerpick Guitar Championship in Winfield, Kansas.
As a soloist, Huttlinger recorded more than 15 albums, including Catch & Release, Naked Pop, Things Are Looking Up, The Santa Rita Connection, First Light and The Black Swan.  Two of the albums earned him particular acclaim:  Fingerpicking Wonder, a collection of guitar covers of Stevie Wonder’s hits, and McGuire’s Landing, a song cycle he composed about westward expansion in America as seen through the eyes of an Irish immigrant.
He released his final album, Parnassus, a collaboration with vocalist Mollie Weaver, in 2015.
Huttlinger made the first of three appearances at Carnegie Hall starting in 2007. He also performed at three of Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Festivals.
He is survived by his wife and second heart, Erin Morris Huttlinger, stepchildren Sean Della Croce and James Della Croce, a brother, Frank Huttlinger, in California, and a sister, Theresa Vigour, in Mississippi.
A memorial service will be announced at a later date.  A memorial fund is being developed in Pete’s honor.

OLD DOMINION KICKS OFF MEAT AND CANDY TOUR WITH MEMORABLE NASHVILLE CELEBRATION

OLD DOMINION KICKS OFF MEAT AND CANDY TOUR WITH MEMORABLE NASHVILLE CELEBRATION

RCA Nashville band commemorates milestone with sold-out headlining tour opener, celebrates smash multi-week No. 1 "Break Up With Him" and looks to the future with new single "Snapback"

 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (Jan. 15, 2016) – RCA Nashville’s Old Dominion kicked off their highly-anticipated Meat and Candy Tour by selling out Marathon Music Works on Thursday, Jan. 14, Playing to an enthusiastic crowd of 1500, the show followed the ceremony for their debut multi-week No. 1 “Break Up With Him” earlier that day, where they celebrated their ten-year journey with friends and fans.

“This is our first show out [of 2016],” singer Matthew Ramsey told the raucous sold-out crowd. “What a way to kick it off in our hometown. Lots of familiar faces and lots of new faces.”

All those new faces are marking Old Dominion as one of 2016’s most exciting country acts to watch as well as an act who is “helping to usher in a new wave of country,” (Billboard). The group showed why critics, radio programmers and savvy fans think it’s the next big thing, playing “Break Up With Him” and new runaway hit “Snapback” for the crowd along with some of the best known cuts from members’ individual songwriting hits such as Blake Shelton’s “Sangria“ and Tyler Farr’s “Guy Walks into a Bar.” The 20-song set was broadcast live across North America by SiriusXM.

“At our first show there were 25 people there, so this is a welcome sight!” Ramsey joked with fans, who crowded the stage and danced all night. “Break Up With Him,” the first single from Shane McAnally-produced debut album Meat and Candy, is unique in several ways. The song was written by all five members of the band – Ramsey, Trevor Rosen, Whit Sellers, Geoff Sprung and Brad Tursi. It was then recorded by all five members who played their own instruments on the album.

“Break Up With Him” also broke unconventionally, getting its start on SiriusXM’s The Highway, where it was voted the No. 1 song of 2015 by fans, after spending six consecutive weeks in the No.1 spot The Highway’s Hot 45 Countdown. It then migrated to terrestrial radio thanks to fan demand. A record deal quickly followed.

“Break Up With Him” marks a milestone for all five members. It’s the first No. 1 for Sellers and Sprung and gives Ramsey, Rosen and Tursi a coveted Triple Play, the award given by the Country Music Association marking three or more No. 1 songs in a 12-month period. Rosen now has four career chart-toppers, Ramsey and Tursi have three.

“It started with just the five of us. When we started this thing out our goal was in the end to remain friends, and I think we’re doing pretty good in that. It also highlights how much it’s just not the five of us any more and how many people are out there busting their asses for us.”

Those numbers could be headed upward soon. Second single “Snapback” has connected instantly with fans, driving 126 country radio stations to add it upon release last week. That’s nearly double the number that initially added “Break Up With Him,” reflecting Old Dominion’s quick rise.

Fans will have lots of opportunities to catch Old Dominion in 2016. First up is a headlining tour that has already secured sellouts of 15 shows across the U.S., including Joe’s Pub in New York City, Joe’s Bar in Chicago, The Roxy in Los Angeles and the Grizzly Rose in Denver. Later in the year they join Kenny Chesney for the second straight summer along with Miranda Lambert and Sam Hunt.

About Old Dominion 
RCA Nashville recording act Old Dominion has been writing songs and honing its live show in Music City for 10 years. While many of the group’s songs have been recorded by top artists including Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, The Band Perry, Chris Young and more, the group is currently focused on performing its own brand of country stripped down and raw but muscular enough to fit in on today’s country radio. Their recent debut single “Break Up With Him” spent two weeks at No.1 on the Country charts and was certified GOLD by the RIAA. The band released its debut full-length album Meat and Candy on Nov. 6, produced by GRAMMY Award winning songwriter/producer Shane McAnally. They will join Kenny Chesney’s 2016 tour. Their new single “Snapback” is at Country radio now.
