Doug Kershaw Serves Up A Gumbo Of Vintage


Cajun Country/Folk Legend Doug Kershaw Serves Up A Gumbo Of Vintage Unreleased Demos & Recordings On A New 2CD Anthology!

Los Angeles, CA - Known worldwide as one of the most important figures in Cajun music, a renowned multi-instrumentalist, master of the fiddle and accordion, distinctive vocalist, and a highly prolific songwriter, Doug Kershaw has spent most of his career mining the rich musical traditions of his home state of Louisiana, from zydeco to Creole-influence country and folk. Now he looks back on his own illustrious career, all the way back to his days performing as a duo with his brother Rusty in the 1950s, though the early years of his budding solo career, and digs up a stunning collection of more than 50 vintage studio recordings and demos. These never-before-released gems will be available to music fans worldwide on February 5 as Anthology - Rare Masters 1958-1969, a superb 2CD set courtesy of Goldenlane Records.

This treasure trove of an album is split between full band demos (comprising Disc 1) and guitar demos (comprising Disc 2), both showcasing not only an amazing vocal and musical dexterity but also a stunning, frequently moving songwriting talent. Often built around a clever, affecting turn of phrase (see “Shake Hands & Come Out Crying,” “I Wish I Had Died As A Baby,” or “It Takes All Day To Get Over Night”), Kershaw’s music may have roots in a specific region but his lyrics speak to the most universal themes of love, family, and good ol’ fashioned human misery. Kershaw’s own enthusiasm for the songs contained herein has not been diminished at all by the passing years. “I am so proud of this compilation,” Kershaw declares, “It’s like exposing my life to the world. I am who I am because you the people allowed me to be!” With an endorsement like that, no self-respecting Kershaw fan will be able to pass this one up!

JASON ALDEAN “HOTTEST TOURS” OF 2016

JASON ALDEAN IGNITES ONE OF ROLLING STONE’S “HOTTEST TOURS” OF 2016
WITH STRING OF SOLD OUT AND RECORD-BREAKING WE WERE HERE TOUR DATES

NASHVILLE, TN – Jan. 25, 2016 - Already dubbed one of "2016’s Hottest Tours” by Rolling Stone for fans "looking to have the night of their lives," three-time and reigning ACM Male Vocalist of the Year Jason Aldean's WE WERE HERE 2016 TOUR makes its opening run after a string of sold-out shows. With bigger-than-ever production, a new setlist and history-making attendance records, he’s putting his mark on the "record books as the first time a solo music performer has headlined a pair of sold-out two night stands in succession" (The Pantagraph) at the US Cellular Coliseum in Bloomington, IN.

“I love getting back out on the road this time of year,” said Aldean. "Everybody’s been cooped up in the house trying to stay warm, so I feel like the crowds are fired up, rowdier than ever ready to get out of the house by the time we roll into town. We’re definitely feeling that and it makes taking the stage that much more fun.”

Of the new tour, critics note “more than two hours after he took the stage, Aldean’s fans stayed with him...and they sang their favorite songs from country radio” (Omaha World-Herald). Up next, Aldean will make stops in Grand Forks, ND (1/28), Bismark, ND (1/29) and Sioux Falls, SD (1/3) and fans can get more information and a full list of upcoming tour dates at www.jasonaldean.com.

DIERKS BENTLEY SOMEWHERE ON A BEACH

DIERKS BENTLEY'S
“SOMEWHERE ON A BEACH” SETS SAIL AT
COUNTRY RADIO AND ON iTUNES

Bentley Adds Newcomer Tucker Beathard
to 2016 TOUR

NASHVILLE, TN - Jan. 25, 2016 - Fans across the country have found a little reprieve from winter in Dierks Bentley's "Somewhere On A Beach,” evident as the track immediately shot to the top of iTunes' Country songs upon release. The salty track serves as the lead single from his forthcoming eighth studio album BLACK (Capitol Records Nashville) and is the most added song at Country radio this week, with the biggest add date of 2016 as 104 stations jumped on board.

“I was ready to have fun, so it’s been really cool to see the fans immediately react to this song the way they have,” said Bentley. “As I literally sit on a beach right now in Cancun, I can’t remember ever being this excited about a new single."

Critics were also quick to jump onboard, noting the “lead single from forthcoming album 'Black' is all about the relationship rebound…over an R&B-tinged groove, Bentley sings about a guy shaking off his breakup blues by enjoying the company of a beautiful lady and partying his ass off in the sand” (Rolling Stone), while Entertainment Weekly adds "it’s not more than one trip through the sexy chorus before you’re on a kayak, trying to find a way to do the same.”

The multi-PLATINUM entertainer has added rising singer/songwriter Tucker Beathard to the opening slot of his upcoming 2016 SOMEWHERE ON A BEACH TOUR, which is set to follow a string of UK shows together in April. The North American leg will begin on May 12 in Holmdel, NJ at the PNC Bank Arts Center with Randy Houser and special guest Cam. Fans can purchase tickets beginning Friday (1/29) for select cities as part of Live Nation’s Country Megaticket at www.Megaticket.com
 
Since moving from Phoenix to Nashville in the 1990s, Bentley has established his own artistic trail in country music. Instead of rehashing proven formulas, he’s doggedly reinvented his sound and subsequently developed an uncommon mix of commercial success and critical respect. RISER debuted at No. one on the Billboard country album chart, and its trio of chart-topping singles upped his career tally to 13 No one. songs as a songwriter and artist. He’s now amassed 13 GRAMMY nominations and dozens of other award show nominations. Additionally, Bentley has been a Grand Ole Opry member for over a decade and will co-host the 51st Annual ACM Awards this April on CBS.

THOMAS RHETT SIX-WEEK NO. ONE SINCE TAYLOR SWIFT’S “OUR SONG” IN 2008

THOMAS RHETT’S “DIE A HAPPY MAN" MARKS FIRST SIX-WEEK NO. ONE
ON THE BILLBOARD COUNTRY AIRPLAY CHART SINCE
TAYLOR SWIFT’S “OUR SONG” IN 2008


The PLATINUM Hit Consistently Maintains Position As Best-Selling Country Track
and Tops Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart for 11th Week

NASHVILLE, TN – Jan. 25, 2016 – Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Thomas Rhett declares the top spot once again on the Billboard Country Airplay chart this week as his megahit “Die A Happy Man" spends its sixth consecutive week at No. One. The last artist to hold the same reign over the chart was Taylor Swift exactly eight years ago with “Our Song.”

"I seriously can't believe this song has spent six weeks at No. one,” said Thomas Rhett. "When you put a song out there as personal as this, you hope it connects and resonates with people. But I could never have imagined it would connect like this! And to mirror an achievement not seen since Taylor Swift - someone I really respect as a songwriter, performer and entertainer - is just mind blowing." 

“The biggest country song in the nation right now" (Omaha World-Herald) continues to serve as the best-selling country digital track and simultaneously tops Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart for an 11th week. Thomas Rhett continues to bring his signature "sizzling fusion of soul, funk, R&B and country as his own" (Rolling Stone) to his live show as direct support for Jason Aldean’s WE WERE HERE 2016 TOUR, where he has proven he knows “how to please a full house” (City County Observer).

RONNIE MCDOWELL TO RELEASE AUTOBIOGRAPHY

RONNIE MCDOWELL TO RELEASE AUTOBIOGRAPHY
"BRINGING IT TO YOU PERSONALLY,"
AVAILABLE FOR PREORDER NOW


Legendary Singer/Songwriter's New Book Chronicles Career

 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 25, 2016) – Ronnie McDowell, known for decades of hit songs and genuine warmth that fills seats again and again, opens up about his illustrious music career in his new autobiography, “‘Bringing It To You Personally,” available for preorder now.

“Bringing It To You Personally,” which includes more than 100 photos, captures McDowell’s personal and career triumphs, as well as life lessons he’s endured throughout four decades as an entertainer. McDowell’s autobiography chronicles the moment he came out of nowhere to dazzle the world with his heartfelt and self-penned tribute song, “The King Is Gone,” in honor of Elvis Presley’s death.

“My fans have been asking me to write a book for more than 20 years. I have always said it would probably not happen, but last year I thought maybe the time was right to tell the real story of my life,” McDowell said.

The young man from Portland, Tennessee quickly proved that he wasn’t just a one-hit wonder after “The King is Gone.” From that single onward, McDowell charted more than thirty Top 40 hits on the Billboard country music charts. Two of his singles, "Older Women" and "You're Gonna Ruin My Bad Reputation," reached No. 1 on the country charts, while eleven more reached Top Ten. He has also released more than twenty studio albums.

McDowell often tours with Elvis Presley’s original sidemen Scotty Moore and D.J. Fontana along with Millie Kirkham and The Jordanaires staging a tribute to Elvis Presley’s music. The legendary Scotty Moore, Elvis’ original guitar player, also raved about McDowell’s autobiography, “If you are a Ronnie fan, if you are an Elvis fan or if you happen to be a Scotty Moore fan…you need to read this book.”

The book’s foreword is written by one of Ronnie’s best friends, The Jordanaires’ Ray Walker:
(book excerpt) “Ronnie is so loved by everyone who works with him. And none more than me. You've heard of people who are joined at that hip? Ronnie and I are joined at the heart. In the Bible, Jesus says, 'There is a friend that sticks closer than a brother'...and that is Ronnie McDowell,” said Ray Walker of The Jordanaires.
‘Bringing It To You Personally’ also includes McDowell’s personal stories about his friendships with everyone from to George Jones to tourmate Conway Twitty.

“I have been able to work with and get to know just about everyone in country music. And I am able to share my memories of those special times and special people.” McDowell adds, “There are some funny stories about a lot of the country stars. And yes, I name names!”

McDowell scored a Top 10 hit with "It's Only Make Believe," a duet with Conway Twitty on what had been Twitty's breakthrough rock and roll hit in 1958. Conway Twitty fans will also love Ronnie’s memories of seven years on the road with Conway.

“I have so many memories of Conway and they are all in here, going from the first time I met him to the very last words he said to me before he died,” McDowell said.

ABOUT RONNIE MCDOWELL:
Like all great entertainers, Ronnie McDowell has a personality that remains luminous long after the lights go dim. These qualities have inspired a nationwide network of fan-clubs with more than 3,000 members, each one a devoted promoter of everything McDowell does. Following the death of Elvis Presley in 1977, Ronnie McDowell came out of nowhere to dazzle the world with his heartfelt and self-penned tribute song “The King Is Gone” on the independent Scorpion label. The record took off immediately, gaining airplay on country and pop stations across the country and around the world. To date, “The King Is Gone” has sold more than five million. McDowell scored a second hit for the Scorpion label titled “I Love You, I Love You, I Love You” before being wooed and signed by CBS Records – Epic label in 1979. He continued to chart a string of hit singles and albums for Epic between 1979 and 1986. Every single release with the exception of just one became a Top 10 Hit including the chart toppers “Older Women” and “You’re Gonna Ruin My Bad Reputation.” Other hits during his Epic years included “Watchin Girls Go By,” “Personally,” “You Made A Wanted Man Of Me,” “All Tied Up,” and “In A New York Minute.” He sought the advice of artists such as Conway Twitty who became, in essence, not only his mentor but his friend as well. Twitty helped the young singer with advice about touring, recording and most of all, entertaining fans. Twitty was certainly the master and Ronnie McDowell quickly became his prize pupil. Moving to Curb Records in 1986, his current label to date, McDowell scored a Top 10 hit with “It’s Only Make Believe,” a duet with Conway Twitty on what was Twitty’s breakthrough hit from 1958. Two years later Ronnie teamed up with Jerry Lee Lewis for a rocking duet that McDowell wrote titled,”You’re Never Too Old To Rock N’ Roll.” He also recorded yet another Top 10 hit with his version of the pop standard “Unchained Melody,” which also became a #1 country music video. His entertaining abilities soared and he began to draw larger crowds. He started appearing in larger venues and touring with artists such as Conway Twitty, Tammy Wynette and Loretta Lynn before headlining his own shows. McDowell also achieved notoriety when he sang 36 songs on the soundtrack “Elvis,” the Dick Clark-produced television movie that featured Kurt Russell as the performer. He also was the singing voice for the television movie “Elvis And Me”, the ABC television series about the early years of Elvis’ career titled simply “Elvis” as well as, the 1997 Showtime special “Elvis Meets Nixon.” While Elvis Presley has played a big part in Ronnie McDowell’s musical career over the years, Ronnie continues to entertain audiences with his own blend of romantic intimacy and country excitement.
