SCOTTY McCREERY RETURNS TO “AMERICAN IDOL” ON FEB. 11
ACM and CMT Award Winner Mentors and Performs with Two Contestants on FOX Television Series
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (Feb. 5, 2015) – Multi-Platinum-selling country music sensation Scotty McCreery returned to his roots earlier this week when he taped an episode of the Farewell Season of “American Idol.” For three days, the Season Ten champion mentored two of the Top 24 contestants (their names cannot be revealed at this time) and shared lessons learned from both his experience on the iconic television show and in his ACM and CMT Award-winning career. Much to the excitement of the studio audience, the entertainer also performed duets with both singers. “American Idol,” featuring McCreery, along with five other returning Idols, will air next Thursday, February 11 at 8:00 PM ET (7:00 PM CT) on the FOX Television Network.
"I remember how important it was to me during my time on 'Idol' to meet and learn from all the great artists who visited the set and offered their advice," said McCreery. "I was proud to be able to come back and offer whatever guidance I could to my two talented contestants. This is their season and their show. I was there to help them shine...and I believe they both did!"
McCreery is on the road next week performing concerts on Feb. 12 at the Canton Palace Theater in Canton, Ohio; Feb. 13 at the Secrest in Zanesville, Ohio; and Feb. 14 at the River City Casino in St. Louis, Missouri. He will release his first book, Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream, on May 3. The book is available now for pre-sale at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and ChristianBook.com.
About Scotty McCreery
At age 17, McCreery burst onto the national music scene in 2011 as the winner of “American Idol” Season Ten and quickly established himself as one of country music’s hottest new stars. Now 22 years old, the talented singer/songwriter has sold more than 2.5 million albums. He made history as both the youngest artist and the first male country artist to debut his first studio album atop the all-genre Billboard Top 200 chart with the Platinum-certified Clear as Day. All three of his albums debuted at No. 1 on a Billboard chart including the Gold-certified Christmas with Scotty McCreery and his most recent album, See You Tonight. He has achieved one Gold (the Top Ten hit “Feelin’ It”) and three Platinum-certified singles (“The Trouble with Girls,” “I Love You This Big,” and the Top Ten hit “See You Tonight”) and toured with Brad Paisley and Rascal Flatts, among other artists. McCreery has earned the Academy of Country Music's New Artist of the Year Award (2011), CMT Music Award for Breakthrough Video of the Year (for "The Trouble with Girls" in 2012), American Country Award for New Artist of the Year (2011) and Breakthrough Artist of the Year (2013), and a BMI Award for writing one of the Top 50 Country Songs of 2015 ("See You Tonight"). The readers of NASH Country Weekly Magazine voted him “Country Music’s Sexiest Man 2015.” Tour dates and more information on the North Carolina native can be found at www.ScottyMcCreery.com.

LOCASH MAKES MORNING SHOW DEBUT ON NBC'S TODAY SHOW WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 24TH AND LATE NIGHT DEBUT ON ABC'S JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE! WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16THNASHVILLE, Tenn. (February 5, 2016) – One of the feel good stories in country music during the past year is the success story of Reviver Records recording duo LOCASH. Consisting of Preston Brust and Chris Lucas, they've watched as “I Love This Life,” has climbed all the way to No. 2 on the Billboard airplay chart.
Watching the rise of the song, which was co-written by veteran songwriter Danny Myrick and Academy of Country Music Awards nominee Chris Janson, has been a moment that the duo will never forget.
“Hard work is really starting to pay off for us,” says Chris Lucas. “We have been seeing the response live. People are singing it back to us. It’s an amazing feeling, for sure.” Brust agrees, adding, “Every day is so exciting. I know this sounds like a cliché, but dreams do come true. We have worked so hard to get to this point. It’s so surreal.”
And, with 2016 in gear, the good times are only going to get better. On February 24, LOCASH will make their network morning show debut on NBC’s The Today Show from New York City, and will guest on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live just a few weeks later, on March 16.
The Today Show is one of the most iconic network shows of all time,” says Brust. “When you think about all of the artists that have gotten a chance to showcase their talents on that platform, you realize just how lucky you are.” As far as the Kimmel appearance, Lucas says it’s just more of their goals being realized. "Come on, late-night network television, man! Who doesn’t dream of that? We’re just so blessed and grateful for everything that is going on right now with our careers, and our team that has gotten us where we are. I think if you talked to Preston or me, either one of us would definitely say… 'I Love This Life.'"
LOCASH has also just released their follow-up to their smash hit, with “I Know Somebody” beginning to make an impact at radio.

JASON MCCOY RETURNS AS HOST OF THE COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION OF ONTARIO AWARDS
TORONTO, ON - The Country Music Association of Ontario (CMAO) is thrilled to announce Jason McCoy of The Road Hammers will return as host of the 2016 CMAO Awards (presented by Slaight Music) for the third year in a row. McCoy, an ever-engaging and entertaining host, is a popular fan and industry favourite and will bring his own brand of energy, quips and comedic timing to the night.
"It's an honour to be returning as host of the CMAO's. This year has been the best yet for Ontario artists, and it's great to see so much support from the industry and fans alike." McCoy says.
As a 25-year veteran of the entertainment industry and two-time CCMA Male Vocalist of the Year, McCoy is the king of reinvention. Growing up in the small town of Minesing, Ontario, McCoy admired the well-rounded artistry of the classic entertainers, from Roger Miller and Johnny Cash to Merle Haggard and Glen Campbell. Armed with a guitar and a dream, McCoy set out at the age of 19 to follow his own path to stardom. Together with The Road Hammers he has won five CCMAs. As a solo artist, he's racked up multiple CCMA and CMA awards, along with a Gold album.
As creator and front man of The Road Hammers, McCoy took on the country rock genre and guided the band to unprecedented success throughout Canada and the United States, picking up a Platinum album, CCMA Group of the Year award, and a JUNO award along the way. The band are heading to Australia or the CMC Rocks Festival this March and were recently announced as performers at the first CMT Festival this July.
The Western Swing Authority also returns to the awards as the event's house band. The award show will be held Monday, May 30, 2016, at the Flato Markham Theatre. For ticket information visit www.ticketbreak.com.

NASHVILLE, TN (February 4, 2016) - Elizabeth Lyons’ fans anxiously wait for the release of her sophomore country EP I’ve Never on February 22nd following the success of her iTunes All-Time Bestseller Under $8, Billboard charting debut self-titled EP which featured her first single “Everything Tonight” which was played on Sirius XM The Highway ‘On the Horizon’ and single “#PartyRules” charted #1 on Country Music Video Chart on iTunes and #4 on CMT Pure channel.
The album includes “Made in the Midwest” which speaks to Elizabeth’s roots in the Midwest growing up outside Chicago on the shores of Lake Michigan and spending time with family in Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota. The song “Girls Like Shoes, Bags & Boys” which speaks to all women and the things they love and “Southern Gentleman” is Lyons’ story moving from the north to the south. “General Admission” speaks to Lyons’ love of country concerts being one big party and her love of each and every fan to her experience opening up for: “Luke Bryan” and writing a song about finding a boyfriend who’s like him.
“My main goal for this record is to be true to who I am. I want my songs to convey my personality and approach toward life. "I’ve Never" is my reflection of it all… I never thought I’d be following my dreams and be releasing a second album or even opening for artists’ who I grew up listening to & who have loved & inspired me. Or that, I would fall in love,” Elizabeth says this sophomore EP “is about always 'keeping the faith,’ faith God will take you on the journey your suppose to be on...because in life you just never know?!”
I’ve Never is the result of a successful PledgeMusic campaign launched this past November. Recorded in Nashville, the EP features some of Nashville’s best-known: produced by Brad Hill (Brothers Osborne, Maren Morris, Brett Young), Writers: Jason Massey (Kelsea Ballerini, Haley & Michaels), Dan Swinimer (Jojo Mason, Madeline Merlo), Heidi Raye and Georgia Thomas.
Elizabeth Lyons, a graduate of Vanderbilt, is a completely ‘DIY’ independent artist, who has to date, booked herself and her band at clubs, festivals, fairs, fundraisers, businesses, colleges, schools, country clubs across the country. Elizabeth is thrilled to have shared the stage with many acts to include a few: Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum, Hunter Hayes, Sam Hunt, Alabama, Dierks Bentley, Cole Swindell, Chase Rice, Cheap Trick, Thomas Rhett, Randy Houser. Early believers like Joe’s Bar owner in Chicago, IL and Summerfest’s CEO fell in love with her spark plug personality and talent, and she soon found herself in more high profile gigs like singing the “National Anthem” at Wrigley Field and performing her original songs at CMA Music Festival, Summerfest, Windy City Smoke Out, Country Jam, Country USA, Country on the River, Country Stampede, Country Thunder and Mardi Gras.
