ERIC CHURCH’S “RECORD YEAR” TAPPED FOR SECOND SINGLE


ERIC CHURCH’S “RECORD YEAR” TAPPED FOR SECOND SINGLE
ACM Entertainer of the Year Nominee Releases New Single from Mr. Misunderstood; Hits Radio Airwaves Today
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (Tuesday, Feb. 16, 2016) – A 2016 Academy of Country Music Awards top nominee, Eric Church drops his second single "Record Year" from Mr. Misunderstood at Country radio today. The new single namechecks Stevie Wonder's Songs In The Key of Life, Willie Nelson's Red Headed Stranger, John Lee Hooker's One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer among others from Church's stack of vinyl. Upon the album's surprise release last November, Rolling Stone Magazine dubbed the new single the "most moving moment" on the widely-lauded album. 
Church co-wrote "Record Year" with longtime banjo player and guitarist Jeff Hyde who has previously collaborated on hits such as the three-week No. 1 "Springsteen" (along with Ryan Tyndell) from the ACM and CMA Album of the Year Chief and the anthematic Top 20 "Smoke a Little Smoke" (written by Church and Hyde alongside other bandmate Driver Williams) from 2009's Carolina, a release that has since been pointed to as a pivotal shift in musical direction for "our greatest working rock star" (Stereogum). 
With poignantly clever lyrics, "Record Year" is Church's ode to a lost love who instead of finding solace in another's arms, finds consolation in a three-foot stack of vinyl: 
"Your leavin' left me goin' crazy, I'm countin' on a needle to save me / I drop it in the groove, And we go 'round and 'round, And down in a spiral / I guess I really oughta call and thank you, I rediscovered Red Headed Stranger / Got down with old James Brown, And found New Grass Revival / If you find your way back, I owe you a beer, For my record year" 
"Record Year" follows the Top 15 title track, which shipped to radio unexpectedly in conjunction with the album's release last fall. Church recently discussed the reason behind Mr. Misunderstood's sudden issue to ESPN's Marty Smith: "Inspiration. And you can never pick when inspiration is going to strike," Church simply stated. "I hate when you're told 'here's where to make an album'--it doesn't work like that." Church had initially revealed in a letter to his fans that the inspiration for Mr. Misunderstood came from a guitar his son affectionately named "Butter Bean." Thirty days after picking up that guitar, over 80,000 fans received the unannounced album and a note directly from Church on November 4 before it was made available everywhere for purchase later that week.
The New York Times calls Mr. Misunderstood “a love letter to his influences” noting "in his songs, music is fuel for love, for anguish and, naturally, for other music." The Guardian calls the 10-song collection "a gem and the best album of his career." And Rolling Stone Country raves "'Record Year' talks of three seminal J's – Jennings, Jones and James Brown – who all are crucial pillars in Mr. Misunderstood's songbook. But it's a more subtle reference to John Lee Hooker ("one bourbon, one scotch, one beer/I'm having a record year") that shows he's more than comfortable being stuck inside of Mobile with the Memphis — or Delta."
Along with an Album of the Year nod for Mr. Misunderstood, Church is also up for ACM Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, Video of the Year (for “Mr. Misunderstood”), and Musical Event of the Year for “Raise ‘Em Up” with Keith Urban.  
About Eric Church
The two-time Country Music Association and four-time Academy of Country Music Award winner cemented his reputation as a maverick by releasing his 2015 album Mr. Misunderstood as a surprise, delivering it to fans before announcing its existence and putting it on sale. The North Carolina native received a huge response from fans who made Church 2014’s top-selling country music artist with the year’s highest debut and sales of any release in the format as the critical and commercial success The Outsiders reached Platinum status. Debuting at No. 1 on both the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart and Top Country Albums chart, The Outsiders garnered GRAMMY, CMA and ACM Album of the Year nominations and featured his No.1 hits “Give Me Back My Hometown” and “Talladega” as well as multiple nominee “Like A Wrecking Ball.” The Outsiders is the follow-up to Church’s Platinum-certified CHIEF, named the 2012 Album of the Year by both CMA and ACM, and GRAMMY-nominated for Best Country Album. The LP featured five Top 20 singles: “Homeboy” (certified Platinum for sales in excess of 1 million); the Top 10 “Like Jesus Does” and the Top 5 “Creepin’” (both certified Gold for sales in excess of 500,000); and two No. 1 hits “Drink in My Hand” (certified Platinum) and “Springsteen” (certified Double Platinum for sales in excess of 2 million singles). Church’s 2006 debut album, Sinners Like Me and his sophomore album Carolina (2009) are both RIAA Gold certified.

DEBORAH ALLEN RETURNS

AMERICA'S COUNTRY SWEETHEART DEBORAH ALLEN RETURNS TO TELEVISIONS NATIONWIDE ON ALL-NEW EPISODE OF "REFLECTIONS"

Episode Set to Air Week of February 15 on Heartland and Blue Highways
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (February 16, 2016) – Deborah Allen, the fiery country singer who stole America’s hearts with her No. 1 cross-over smash, “Baby I Lied,” is hitting televisions nationwide for an all-new episode of “Reflections.” The hit-maker will give a career-spanning, in-depth interview the week of February 15, on Heartland TV and Blue Highways’ hit program “Reflections” (check local listings). The show, which is hosted by Keith Bilbrey, takes viewers inside the life and career of some of country music’s most influential artists of all time. Tune in as Deborah Allen sits down with the Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame DJ for a discussion about her storied career, biggest obstacles, along with what lies ahead for the singer/songwriter. “Reflections” airs on The Heartland Network Thursdays 8/7c (6 p.m. CST on WSMV 4.2 in Nashville) and Saturdays 4/3c. Click here to find your local channel.

“I had so much fun catching up with Keith! He has a way of pulling personal stories out of me that I normally wouldn't think to tell, along with some of my biggest career highlights,” says Deborah Allen. “Maybe that's because we're such big buddies! We go way back!”

Along with finding success herself as a solo artist, the critically acclaimed singer has penned more than 1,600 compositions for hundreds of artists, including smash hits by LeAnn Rimes, Brooks & Dunn, Patty Loveless, Conway Twitty, Tanya Tucker, Janie Fricke, John Conlee, Isaac Hayes, Diana Ross, Sheena Easton, Fleetwood Mac and more. She would later find success of her own, hitting the charts with unique songs like “I've Been Wrong Before,” “I Hurt For You,” “Rock Me,” “If You're Not Gonna Love Me,” “Wrong Side Of Love,” “Break These Chains” and her signature song, “Baby I Lied.”

Deborah continues to tour throughout North America, after recently wrapping up her 2015 “Nothing But the Hits Tour.” She kicked off 2016 performing on the SOLD-OUT Country Music Cruise, which ported from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Be on the lookout for more details to come!

About Deborah Allen:
Deborah Allen is one of those rare artists who forged their own path to success and ended up building a world-class career in the process. An extraordinarily talented singer, songwriter, producer and performer, Deborah's unique abilities as an artist may be matched only by her enthusiasm and creativity as an individual. It is that formidable combination of spirit and talent that keeps the Grammy-nominated entertainer in demand.

In some ways, “Baby I Lied” confirmed the idea that an artist could have success in different formats with the same song – a precedent that would prove to be years ahead of the crossover trends of today. “Baby I Lied” not only appealed to Country and Pop radio listeners, earning multiple Million Air-Play Awards in the process, but it also resulted in a pair of Grammy nominations for the Delta songstress – one as a vocalist and one as a songwriter.

Throughout her phenomenal journey of hits and accomplishments in every facet of her career, Deborah Allen remains true to her vision. From her discovery by Roy Orbison, to her friendship with Shel Silverstein, her work with Prince, Deborah creates art entirely on her own terms. With a distinguished career built on success after success as a performer, songwriter and producer, the dynamic Delta singer from Memphis, Tennessee, has no plans of slowing down anytime soon. That's simply not Deborah Allen's style.

Es ist alles Gold, was glänzt - "Living Life Golden" von Elliphant erscheint am 25. März

Image Label


Elliphant ist einer der gehyptesten Künstlerinnen der letzten Jahre und eine der wenigen, die den Sprung von Nische zum Mainstream-Publikum geschafft hat. Am 25. März veröffentlicht die quirlige Schwedin nun ihr Album „Living Life Golden“. Die gebürtige Stockholmerin ist ein echtes Ausnahme-Talent. Nicht nur, weil sie durch ihre extrovertierte, freche Persönlichkeit auffällt, sondern weil sie vor allem musikalisch eine Breite an Sound-Einflüssen kombiniert, die ihresgleichen sucht.

Zwischen Elektro, Dubstep, Hiphop, Reggae, Dancehall und dem jamaikanischem Patois bewegen sich ihre Songs und haben damit schon für Aufmerksamkeit bei Größen wie Skrillex und Diplo gesorgt, die sie prompt für diverse Kollaborationen als Vocal-Unterstützung gebucht und sie mit auf Europa-Tournee genommen haben.

Aber nicht nur live konnte Elliphant im Vorprogramm von Diplos EDM-Projekt Major Lazer auf die Unterstützung ihres Förderers bauen: Auch auf ihrem Album ließ es sich der Produzent nicht nehmen und schneiderte ihr einen Song nach Maß. Als weitere Gäste konnte die Skandinavierin bereits erwähnten Skrillex, Twin Shadow, Mo und Azealia Banks gewinnen. Beste Voraussetzungen also, um für die nötige Aufmerksamkeit im Business zu sorgen.



Künstler unter sich - Yo Gottis neues Album "The Art Of Hustle" erscheint am 19. Februar

Image Label


Am 19. Februar veröffentlicht Yo Gotti sein neues Album “The Art Of Hustle”. Die erste Single-Auskopplung „Down In The DM“ platzierte sich in den US-Urban-Charts auf dem ersten Platz – und ist von da oben auch nicht so schnell wegzudenken. Im dazugehörigen Videoclip lässt es der mit mehreren Platin-Scheiben ausgezeichnete Rapper zudem so richtig krachen und lädt zur wohl coolsten Hochzeit der Welt ein. Zu den Gästen zählen unter anderem DJ Khaled und Cee Lo Green als Priester verkleidet.

Für das Album holte sich Yo Gotti Unterstützung von namhaften HipHop- und R&B-Größen wie E-40 („Law“), Future („General“), K. Michelle („My City“), Lil Wayne („Bible“) und Timbaland („Smile“). Die Deluxe-Version des Werks beinhaltet zudem Gastauftritte von Pusha T („Hunnid“) und 2Chainz („Luv Deez Hoes“). Produziert wurde die Platte unter anderem von Timbaland, Drum Boy und Ben Billions. Über das Album sagt Gotti: „Die Musik spiegelt mein Leben – vom Ghetto bis hin zur Musikindustrie – wider. Mein Ziel ist es mit diesem Album meine Geschichte in meinen eigenen Worten zu erzählen und zu beweisen, dass es sich lohnt, für seine Ziele und Träume zu kämpfen.“

Kleiner Reminder - Josef Salvat veröffentlicht am Freitag "Night Swim"

Image Label


Am 19. Februar veröffentlicht Josef Salvat mit „Night Swim“ sein Erstlingswerk. Die Platte enthält neben den beiden Singles „Diamonds“ und „Open Season“, das weltweit bereits mehr als fünf Millionen Views verzeichnet, die neuen Songs „Hustler“, „Shoot And Run“, „Night Swim“ und den Live-Fan-Favoriten „Punchline“. Die Aufnahmen fanden in Zusammenarbeit mit Produzent Rich Cooper in London statt.

Mit seiner Piano-Version des Rihanna-Hits „Diamonds“ gelang dem australischem Sänger und Songwriter vor einem Jahr ein internationaler Hit. Der Track von seiner Debüt-EP „In Your Prime“ erreichte Platz elf der deutschen Charts und verkaufte sich hierzulande mehr als 130.000 Mal. In Frankreich erreichte die Single sogar Platz zwei.

Josefs Route auf dem Weg zum Pop-Sänger führte ihn nach Barcelona, wo er sein Jura-Studium abschloss und einen Kurs in Audio-Engineerung belegte. Sein endgültiges Ziel war jedoch London. Als die Weltwirtschaftskrise Spanien erfasste und nahezu alle Freunde und Bekannten ihre Jobs verloren und Pleite gingen, betrieb Salvat kurzerhand ein illegales Bed & Breakfast in einer Wohnung, die er angemietet hatte, um über die Runden zu kommen. Die vergangenen eineinhalb Jahre arbeitete er mit dem Produzenten Rich Cooper, zunächst als Pendler zwischen Spanien und Großbritannien und nach Abschluss des Studiums dann in London, an seiner Musik.

“I want to thank everyone who has supported my music and my family.  You have certainly blessed us over the years,” stated Penrod.  “Music like this is often timeless, and this project is especially fulfilling because the truths in these songs apply to all the ups and downs of life.  I pray it lives, as encouragement, for years to come."
 
Produced by Penrod, the new CD and DVD feature some of today’s most cherished hymns and popular worship songs performed in keys and arrangements that are “accessible,” making it easy for concert-goers and congregations to sing along with him.  Featuring the Liberty University Center for Worship Choir, the evening included a long set list of classic and contemporary favorites.

In der Nacht vom 15. auf den 16. Februar wurden im Staples Center in Los Angeles die GRAMMY AWARDS 2016 verliehen. Taylor Swift erhielt für ihr Album „1989“ drei Awards, darunter in der Hauptkategorie „Album Of The Year“.

James Bay stand gemeinsam mit Tori Kelly auf der Bühne. Ellie Goulding performte gemeinsam mit Andra Day, und Chris Stapleton beeindruckte mit einem Tribute an B.B. King.

Gwen Stefani sorgte für eine Sensation bei den Grammy Awards: Für ihre neue Single „Make Me Like You“ filmte sie während einer 4-minütigen Werbepause mit zweifellos einzigartiger Kulisse den offiziellen Videoclip! Das Ergebnis gibt es in Kürze zu sehen.
