Chelsea Bain Interview by Christian Lamitschka for Country Music News International Magazine 

CD: Kev Wright - Journey Road

Kev Wright - Journey Road

The solo release by former Righteous Hillbillies guitar- slinger Kev Wright is a brilliant artistic offering not merely for what it contains, but for what is missing. The guitar-shredding virtuosity which Kev Wright fans have come to expect from his previous work with RH, both on their albums and blistering live performances, is for the most part absent on this album, taking a back seat to piano, mandolin, and harmonica. Those who find themselves disappointed in this will also find themselves missing the point. Kev is the artist’s artist, and the songwriter’s songwriter, and both of the above are the types who refuse to be pigeonholed or allow themselves to be forced into meeting expectations.

On Journey Road, Wright indeed does just that, which is to take us on a journey through the heart and soul and blood and guts of his heart, a heart that is as world-wearied as it is golden, and though both sides of this battle-scarred veteran’s blood-pumper shine brilliantly on the record, in the end, it is the heart of gold which prevails. The musicianship from all the players on Kev’s most excellent and righteous journey is top notch, but the real star on Journey Road is the song, and Wright’s straight-from-the-hip poetic lyrics and storytelling. If it is gratuitous guitar solos you are after, put on some Eddie Van Halen. If you are looking for masterfully-penned tunes that stand up there with the best of Jim Croce, Gordon Lightfoot, and John Prine, then you will do as I have, and spin this one again and again, and find these wonderful songs helplessly stuck in your head.

From the country-rockin’ “Someone Else” to the tear-inducing and heart-warming “Ol Black Dog” to the spiritual “I’ve Been To the Mountain” to the dark and disturbing “Hey Mr. Barczy,” Kev Wright brings us along on his epic journey, a journey that takes us from good times to bad times and back again, through blue-collar days and love-sick nights, with pit stops in a prison cell or two, sometimes inside looking out, other times outside looking in, but always being brutally honest with the subject matter.
Journey Road is as much an album about life, the good, the bad, and the ugly, as you will ever get. This introspective work is overflowing with sincerity and grit and passion. Kev Wright is the last of a breed, a true musical gypsy and hopeless romantic at heart, who through the decades has lived through every musical note that paints the landscape of ups and downs and light and darkness on this album. And though the man has found a sense of inner peace and solidity within his loving family, he is not the type to ever stop questioning things and to take a hard and truthful look at life’s injustices and uncertainties.

Journey Road’s 16 songs run the gamut of rustic and sincere Americana, folk, singer-songwriter, and country. If Wright never cranks out another record, there is more than enough here to showcase his genius. But as someone who has been honored with getting a sneak peek at a plethora of songs from the man’s catalog, I can assure you that this slab of goodness is only the beginning of the lifetime of stories and tales that Kev Wright is ready and willing to share with a weary world, and straight from his time-tested heart of beautiful gold.

DIERKS BENTLEY CRASHES

DIERKS BENTLEY CRASHES COUNTRY RADIO CHARTS WITH 14TH CAREER NO. ONE
“SOMEWHERE ON A BEACH"


Ahead of BLACK’s Release, Bentley’s Fastest
Rising Single Simultaneously Earns GOLD RIAA
Certification

NASHVILLE, TN - May 9, 2016 - Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley has stormed the charts with “Somewhere On A Beach,” the lead single from his forthcoming studio album BLACK (Capitol Records Nashville), out May 27. It cruises to the No. One spot on both the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase radio charts this week and shows no signs of slowing down. The infectious track has also earned GOLD status by the RIAA ahead of the album’s release and spends its second week atop the Canadian radio charts. The fastest rising single of Bentley’s career, “Somewhere On A Beach” continues to resonate with fans for the fourth week on the all-encompassing Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.

“‘Somewhere On A Beach’ is setting up our summer just like we wanted and putting fans in the mood to party out on the tour,” shares Bentley. “It’s hard to believe your 14th No. one hit could be your fastest rising. I’m blown away at the reception of the new music, and I can’t wait to start peeling back more layers of the album with the other songs.”

Bentley continues to exceed expectations with the “autobiographical” (The Tennessean) and “ambitious material” (USA Today) found on BLACK, as he explores breakups, hookups, mess-ups and everything in between.  Next, Bentley embarks on the the 40-city 2016 SOMEWHERE ON A BEACH TOUR with Randy Houser, Cam and Tucker Beathard on Thursday (5/12) in Holmdel, NJ. For more information on the new album, upcoming appearances and tour dates, stay tuned to www.dierks.com.

Country Music Cruise Experience Set For January 14-19, 2017
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 9, 2016) – Country Cruising has already announced the names of some of the artists that will be taking to the high seas in January 2017, with a trio of the hottest artists today – Kelsea Ballerini, LOCASH, and Chris Young, in addition to “Nashville” cast members Charles Esten and Clare Bowen, as well as longtime fan favorites Montgomery Gentry, Diamond Rio, Phil Vassar, and Halfway To Hazard. The cruise’s organizers continue to go the extra mile by providing a wide array of talent on the Brilliance of the Seas® with six of the top newcomers in the format being represented on the cruise - Lucas Hoge, Platinum-selling Canadian artist Dallas Smith, James Wesley, Olivia Lane, Lucy Angel and Australian act Viper Creek.

The musical journey of Lucas Hoge begins in his native state of Nebraska. His hometown consisted of forty-four people, and many of them donated money to the singer to make his way to Nashville. His song “If I Only Could” was featured on the hit TV show Smallville. He also written jingles for such companies as Lipton Tea and appeared with Faith Hill in the TV campaign for NBC’s Sunday Night Football. He wrote the title song and starred in the Animal Planet TV show Last Chance Highway, a reality show focused on rescuing dogs and transporting them to their forever homes. Hoge is currently in the studio working on his debut project for Rebel Engine and his debut single “Boom, Boom” will go for adds in July.

Armed with an arena-sized voice Dallas Smith is one of the most successful Country singers from north of the border. The Vancouver, British Columbia native is the only Canadian Country Artist to have all of his 12 charted singles peak in the Top Ten including the multi-week #1 hit “Wastin’ Gas.” His album, Lifted, took home trophies from the JUNO Awards as well as the Canadian Country Music Awards for Album of the Year. Smith kicks off 2016 with the infectious new single “One Little Kiss”. For more information visit www.DallasSmithMusic.com.

If you love traditional country music, James Wesley is an artist that demands your attention. Influenced by such artists as Marty Robbins and Merle Haggard, the Broken Bow recording artist struck a chord with fans via his debut single “Jackson Hole,” and has landed on many “Ones to Watch” lists because of such follow-up singles as “Real,” “Didn’t I” and “Thank A Farmer.” His newest single is called “Hooked Up,” recorded in association with his sponsor, Calcutta Fishing.

Named to several 2016 “Artists To Watch” lists, Texas native Olivia Lane brings a youthful and vibrant approach to her music. A fan of many styles of music, Lane says she enjoys everything from Frank Sinatra to Katy Perry. That versatility shows up in her music. Her latest single, “Make My Own Sunshine,” is beginning to make an impact at radio stations across the United States, and she has shared the stage with such acts as Frankie Ballard and the incomparable Wynonna.

Consisting of mother Kate and daughters Lindsay and Emily Anderton, the trio Lucy Angel made waves as they emerged onto the Country scene with debut single “Crazy Too.” Their self-titled album made its way to Walmart and Target shelves nationwide alongside the AXS TV premiere of their 13-episode docu-series, DISCOVERING LUCY ANGEL. No strangers to the road, the trio visited over 100 radio stations in the U.S. while “Crazy Too” soared up the Billboard/Mediabase chart and was named One of Tomorrows Hits by Billboard. The upbeat and lighthearted acclaimed single led them to headline shows coast to coast as well as open for artists including Jake Owen, Chris Young, Dustin Lynch, Kip Moore, Craig Campbell, Chris Janson, Big & Rich, Lauren Alaina, James Otto, A Thousand Horses, LoCash, The Swon Brothers and more. Also deemed Pepsi’s No. 1 Country Star Lighting Up 2015 Out of Nowhere, Lucy Angel was honored as the first Western/American act to ever sing at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, China and “Crazy Too” found success in the UK, spending 6 weeks at No. 1 on the Hotdisc Chart. DISCOVERING LUCY ANGEL made it's UK debut on SHOWBIZ TV in February and has garnered the trio a great deal of international media attention. Lucy Angel most recently performed on ABC's hit romance reality show The Bachelor, which catapulted their digital sales landing them in the top 30 on the iTunes Country chart.

High energy and boundless enthusiasm are what fans can expect from Australian band Viper Creek. Nominated for a pair of awards from the CMC (Country Music Channel) Awards, the four piece band has made their mark on the “land down under,” and are working on bringing their unique sound to American audiences. They have released three well-received albums, with their latest being Kickin’ Up Dust. A brand new album, Just Press Play, is slated for release in August.

Country Cruising will set sail on January 14, 2017 from Tampa, and will stop in Key West before making its’ voyage to Cozumel, Mexico. The ship will arrive back in Tampa on January 19. Country Cruising offers the Country Music fan an amazing experience – a five night cruise, with accommodations and all meals taken care of during the event, as well as autograph sessions, photo opportunities, daily musical performances, and songwriter workshops. The Brilliance of the Seas ship is a beautiful Radiance-class ship that combines sleek swiftness, panoramic vistas, and wide-open spaces. With acres of glass enclosing the nine-story central atrium, elevators facing the sea, and floor-to-ceiling windows throughout, guests never be at a loss for an incredible view.

Pricing begins at $1299 for interior rooms, and packages are also available with ocean and balcony views as well.
