"Hung Me On The Line" Breaks MusicRow's Top 40
Passionate Singer/Songwriter Takes "The Test Drive" Today
Nashville, TN (February 15, 2016) - Country newcomer Callie Twisselman's latest single, "Hung Me On The Line," hits the Top 40 on the MusicRow CountryBreakout™ Chart, as the singer/songwriter takes The Test Drive Today. Programmers will see her pilot down the streets of Music Row, and listen as she chats about her career, dreams and the backstory on the new single.
The track is garnering heavy media attention for the California songstress, and reviewers are comparing her vibrant style to that of Dolly Parton, Lee Ann Womack and Kacey Musgraves. "Hung Me On The Line," follows Callie's Top 30 debut single, "Breathe."
The single's companion video features Twisselman playing out a classic Western theme with modern-day twists, and riding one of her own horses. Fans who missed the global premiere on Headlines & Global News can watch the stunning video on The Country Network (TCN), Country Fix (DISH Network, Heartland TV, AMG, Family Channel, Blue Highways, Angel Two), Country TV New Zealand, Keep It Country Music TV (UK), CM & T (UK), CMT Mobile, CMT.com, America's Country Connection, One Stop Country and Jukebox Mixtape.
Twisselman starts her week fresh from "the trenches" at Country Radio Seminar 2016 in Nashville. While in Music City, she helped stuff care packages for Operation Troop Aid, co-sponsored the 2nd Annual Legendary Lunch, and mingled with other stars at the Country Music Hall of Fame reception. The petite blond also participated in interviews with Digital Rodeo TV, KLMJ Radio, Thunder 102, Little Rebellion Music, New Music Weekly, CMR Nashville, Country Music News International, The Hot Spot and Country Music Matters. While fans are waiting on those outlets to post their coverage, they can catch current media musings on this up-and-coming star on: AXS.com, Country Music Junkies, Music Row, All Access and Country Music Minute.
As her music career allows, Callie pursues her other passion - expanding her SassyGirl clothing line. New offerings for the Spring season are coming, and the fringe-lovin' entertainer is promising to add lots of "fun" dresses, skirts and shirts to the collection. On February 27, Twisselman will perform in Paso Robles, California at the Paso Unveiled Fashion Show Extravaganza, to help raise scholarship and programming funds for families in need.
ABOUT CALLIE TWISSELMAN
Raised on her close-knit family's seventh-generation grain and cattle ranch in California, Callie grew up riding horses, learning the finer arts of calf roping and competing in area rodeos. Her mom sang in a Country band, and this star-in-the-making names Dolly Parton, George Strait, Johnny Cash and Shania Twain as musical influences. Callie caught her own case of "stage fever" at the age of 10, and she's been performing ever since. A passionate singer/songwriter, she has entertained music lovers at Fairs and Festivals throughout California and Nevada, and graced the stage at Nashville's famed Bluebird Café. She's opened for top-tier acts Florida Georgia Line, Lee Brice and Frankie Ballard, and is spreading her wings and expanding her own touring base. She supports the Oral Cancer Foundation.

BILL ANDERSON, BIG & RICH, ROY CLARK, COLLIN RAYE AND OTHER COUNTRY LUMINARIES
New Distribution Via "Country Fix" Delivers "The Pickup"
To Over 100 Million Homes
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (February 15, 2016) - "The Pickup" sails with the stars, lunches with legends and serves up a feast of features and news updates for country music fans.
Released today, the newest edition of the program goes behind the scenes at The Legendary Lunch at The Palm in Nashville, honoring the more than 30 country music luminaries in attendance. In exclusive comments to "The Pickup," Bill Anderson reflects humorously on what it means to be considered a legend, Big & Rich offer their definition of what legendary status means to them, Collin Raye shares his thoughts on what makes great country songs endure, Ronnie McDowell expresses his appreciation for being able to renew acquaintances with old friends at the event and Roy Clark admits that the lunch is "a great excuse to get together - I don't want to leave!"
Following initial coverage in the previous edition of "The Pickup," more highlights from the latest Country Music Cruise are presented, with candid comments from Kenny Rogers on his imminent retirement and The Oak Ridge Boys on why retirement is the last thing on their minds.
News items include an upcoming fundraiser by cancer survivor Wade Hayes for the Vanderbilt Ingram Cancer Center. A preview of Kelly Clarkson's children's book, River Rose and the Magical Lullaby, reveals how her daughter inspired the project. Tim McGraw explains the true meaning behind his latest single, "Humble And Kind." "The Pickup" reports on the first performance by Randy Travis following his recovery from a stroke. And at his "takeover" of the famous Ernest Tubb Record Shop to celebrate release of his album DOWN TO MY LAST BAD HABIT, Vince Gill discusses his special love for recording with Alison Krauss.
With this episode, "The Pickup" expands its audience via its new agreement with "Country Fix," a weekly 30-minute program hosted by country artists. Packed with music videos and interviews with superstars and up-and-comers, "Country Fix" broadcasts on Heartland TV (WSMV 4.2 in Nashville, Comcast Channel 230), The Family Channel, Blue Highways TV (Dish), Angel Two Network (Dish), AMG TV Network, ShowBiz TV (UK), the U.K.'s SKY TV and New Zealand's Country TV.

"'The Pickup' is a great complement to our music videos and artist interviews," says Jeff Moseley, Executive Producer, Country Fix. "I love that it offers our viewers worldwide a snapshot of the latest happenings in country. We're proud to include it as a regular component of our program."
In addition to its affiliation with Country Fix, "The Pickup" has recently been added to Lexington Broadcasting, Kickin' Country 105.3 (WQPK), One Stop Country and Music News Nashville as well as the online news service's nine other markets, which include New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. Since being profiled in the Jan. 9, 2016 issue of Billboard magazine, more than 70 radio stations have signed on to host the popular news and entertainment program.
"The Pickup" is steadily winning new viewers by taking them behind the scenes at television tapings, concerts, festivals and special events, reporting news and creating fun features involving the stars of country music. New episodes can be enjoyed on the 1st and 15th of every month on major broadcasters' websites, various media sites and SKY TV's CM&T program and Sandy Zimmerman's Last Vegas Television Network.

Songs From The Valley
Bluer Than the Bluegrass - A Song For Healing - The Hosts of Christmas Past - If I Love You - Not A Day Goes By - The Last Of The Brave Ones - The Wandering Soul (Love Is The Answer)
Luanne Hunt makes her home in Hesperia, California. She's a friend of Joni Morris who came to the largest and longest running old-time rural music festival in America (2016 dates, LeMars, Iowa, Aug 29-Sept 4) to collect a "CD of the Year" award from the Rural Roots Music Commission. Joni told Luanne to submit her CD to me, and I'm glad she did. Here's a very down-to-earth lady singer who really 'feels' what she sings. At first I wondered why she did the song "Bluer Than The Bluegrass" without a banjo, and then when you listen to the song, it's not about bluegrass at all. It's about blue grass. You know the grass that grows in Kentucky. It's a really nicely written song too, and has already gained some prominence for Luanne. I really like the way she used the fiddle in this session. It added a very nice 'touch' to what many would call 'real' country music. There's an interesting 'steel' sound too. Also, she wrote three of the songs, and they are all nicely done. Luanne has already experienced the ups and downs of the 'door closed' music business. This young lady has an exceptional voice, an incredibly nice way of recording, and certainly needs (and has earned) more exposure than she is currently getting. Wake up California, this 'gem' is on your back door step. One other thing I like about Luanne's music, she isn't 'pushing' anywhere, she doesn't need to. I could put Luanne on the back patio, enjoy a lovely dinner with my wife, drink a couple of California wines, and listen quite pleased to Luanne Hunt. What a pleasant experience that would be. The total session, I'm assuming there were not musician changes, has a nice feel about it. There's even a lovely flute sound in "The Last of the Brave Ones." Very nicely done. This is another CD I shall pass along to the Rural Roots Music Commission. When Joni Morris was at the festival where the ceremonies was held, she was on with Anita Bryant. No telling who all will be there this year.

Ride A Wide Circle
The Night Herding Song - Ride A Wide Circle (spoken) - Ride A Wide Circle - Grit Grace and Balin' Twine - Leavin' Cheyenne - Buckskin Joe - Women and Horses - Que Vaquero - The Wild of the West - Big Enough - The Town That Raised Me - Horse Lover - Love's Last Stand - A Cowboy's Soul - Girl Meets West - Son of Wyoming
Mary Kaye is an exceptional person. She has been awarded just about everything that can be awarded to her, and here's an old country-boy listening to one of the very best 'western' singers I've ever heard. How does she do this? First we strip off all the veneer of 'honor' which she has a ton of, deservedly so. Then we listen to what she has to say about what 'western' really means to her. Is it authentic? Indeed it is. Then we reduce the 16 tracks, to 14 of which she wrote. Can she write? Indeed she can. Then we listen to the honesty of her voice. Is it there? Indeed it is. Then finally we listen to those few notes on the musical scale that turns 'regular' into 'incredible.' Can she do that. Indeed she can. I've never heard a western artist begin an album without instrumentation. That puts Mary Kaye in an interesting position right off the bat, or first out of the chute, as she is inclined to say. She doesn't sound like anyone else. She's not imitating anyone. Mary Kaye is Mary Kaye, a name you are not likely to forget if you only hear one of her songs. Listening to her doing 16 of equally fantastically gifted, talented, honest, versatile, and completely entertaining, is a special treat. Mary Kaye has already heard false praise in her career. Someone as devoted as she is to her music would not be exempt from that. She also knows if she can impress the Western Music Association, she can also impress a farmer's son who listens with an ear developed working for the Smithsonian Institution. Is their accuracy, truth, devotion, in her works? Indeed there are. It's very difficult for me to pick out any 'one' song to concentrate on. That's not the way Mary Kaye wants you to hear her works. She wants you to hear all of it. The stories she tells, "whiskey and tobacco and bitter black coffee," how does she know about that? "Cause every girl knows you are what you eat." Yes, she knows that, she's a girl. "I thank Heaven above for puttin' horses in my heart, cause horses keep livin' the way I like." How does she know this? The answer is simple, Mary Kaye is a 'real' artist, one willing to put her soul on the line, willing to take whatever happens. That's very unlike what we hear called 'country music' today. It is so totally false, it could never come close to the honesty of an artist like Mary Kaye. It's also the same reason we'll probably not hear Mary Kaye on the radio in Iowa. But that doesn't matter. She has some incredible gifted works already recorded, three albums since 2008. She used a lot of different musicians on this particular project, and I suspect Mary could be a very 'determined' artist to make sure it sounds like the 'sound' she hears in her own head. Salt Lake City, where she makes her home nearby, must already find her one of the most precious artists they could ever listen to. 2016 has already been an interesting 'music listening' experience for me, and I would certainly recommend to those many fans in Europe who ready my column there, try to get a copy of Mary Kaye somehow. I promise you will not be disappointed. Now, I have to send this CD along to the Rural Roots Music Commission for their listening pleasure, and potential CD of the Year. Oh, I know about that, they'll all want to be in the front row if she's available to accept.
