MIRANDA LAMBERT BRINGS THE HEAT ON OPENING WEEKEND OF “KEEPER OF THE FLAME TOUR”

MIRANDA LAMBERT BRINGS THE HEAT ON OPENING WEEKEND OF “KEEPER OF THE FLAME TOUR”
 
ST. LOUIS, Mo. (Monday, May 16, 2016) -- “The reigning queen of country music demonstrated why she wears the crown,” Amanda S. Amand of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch raved of Miranda Lambert’s Keeper of the Flame Tour opening set on Friday, May 13 at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Maryland Heights, Mo. with openers Kip Moore and Brothers Osborne. Perhaps that’s why a storm rolled in just an hour into Lambert’s set, mother nature’s way of offsetting the heat radiating from the seven-time Female Vocalist of the Year’s first tour stop of the season.

“I am so ready!” Lambert shared with the packed house amidst her exhilarating 20-song set that included a few unexpected twists like covers of “Covered Wagon” (Danny O’Keefe), “Slow Ride” (Foghat) and “Willin’” (Little Feat), which received a rousing response from the crowd. Lambert also surprised fans with an jazz style cover of Ella Fitzgerald’s “Your Red Wagon” to lead into her fiery hit single, “Little Red Wagon.”

Supporting act, Kip Moore “… showcased the harder edged sound he is know for” with “His raspy voice perfect for the crossover sound his trying to achieve,” according to Sean Derrick for Examiner.com. ACM-nominated duo, Brothers Osborne also shared the stage to bring the crowd their hit single “Stay a Little Longer,” and others in the brothers’ easily recognizable style. “Singer T.J. Osborne’s full-throated baritone gets brilliant backing from John Osborne’s guitar,” praised the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, “and both shine on the rollicking number they closed with, ‘It Ain’t My Fault.’”

“The crowd’s energy was just incredible. I told them I could feel the rain making its way to the stage, but they didn’t leave,” Lambert said after the rain and chilly temperatures began whipping those seated in the lawn section outside the shed around 10:20 pm—just an hour into her set. With arsenal still remaining, if they were staying, so was she. “We were all soaked by the end of the night, but those nights are what I live for.” No one minded as they all clamored closer together celebrating a night of great music that ended just minutes before 11 p.m.

DIERKS BENTLEY’S UNDENIABLE TWO

DIERKS BENTLEY’S UNDENIABLE TWO-WEEK NO. ONE “SOMEWHERE ON A BEACH”
AND 2016 TOUR ESCALATE MOMENTUM LEADING INTO BLACK RELEASE


Bentley’s Tour “Starts the Season Off Right” (Times Online) While Critics Continue to Highlight
His “Poignant” (Cleveland Plain Dealer) Upcoming Album

NASHVILLE, TN - May, 16, 2016 - Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley serves as "a rarity" in Country music as he "sells out enormous tours and earns critical acclaim without compromising his artistic vision" (Entertainment Weekly), which is apparent as he commands the No. One spot for a second consecutive week on both the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase radio charts with his 14th career chart-topper "Somewhere On A Beach." The GOLD lead single from his forthcoming studio album BLACK (Capitol Records Nashville), out May 27, served as a standout this past weekend as Bentley's SOMEWHERE ON A BEACH TOUR hosted more than 40,000 fans for its opening run. 

“This weekend was the pinnacle of everything we’ve been working on for basically the entire past year,” said Bentley. “We’ve been hunkered down in the studio all winter finishing the record and moved straight into the rehearsal space to build the tour. It all came together this weekend to some of the loudest crowds I’ve ever heard…they definitely set the bar hight, but I have a feeling it’s only going to get rowdier from here!"

Leading into BLACK’s release, Bentley "started the season off right" (The Times) launching the summer concert season with his biggest hits and new music from the forthcoming album, which continues to catch the attention of critics.

"It's different --€“ far better, even --€“ than anything Bentley has done. That's saying something, considering ‘Riser'' was up for country album of the year at this year's Grammy Awards." - Cleveland Plain Dealer

“An eighth studio album that takes a deep, dark dive into relationships, from the initial glow to the messy, shadowy parts." - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"Bentley, who nicely straddles the line between new and classic country, goes deep on 'Black,' exploring adult themes with a deft touch and artful hand. He has a rich, warm tenor voice with a dusty drawl, and applied here, it has suitable gravitas for the situation." - Asbury Park Press

Bentley continues to give fans an exclusive first listen as the BLACK Listening Bus, powered by BEATS BY DR. DRE, will stay stationed at the next four upcoming dates in advance BLACK’s release. All BLACK Card Members have immediate access to the interactive bus as the 2016 SOMEWHERE ON A BEACH TOUR stops this week in Cleveland, OH (5/20), Chicago, IL (5/21) and Detroit, MI (5/22).

STEVE WARINER CELEBRATES 20 YEARS AS GRAND OLE OPRY MEMBER

STEVE WARINER CELEBRATES 20 YEARS AS GRAND OLE OPRY MEMBER
 
Country Music Legend Honored During Opry Performance

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (May 16, 2016) – This past Saturday (May 14), four-time GRAMMY and CMA Award winner Steve Wariner celebrated his 20th anniversary as a member of the Grand Ole Opry. Pete Fisher, Grand Ole Opry Vice President and General Manager, presented Wariner with a special plaque during the singer/songwriter’s performance. Country Music Hall of Fame member Bill Anderson, who inducted Wariner into the Grand Ole Opry 20 years ago, also was on hand to pay tribute to his longtime friend.

“Wow! I can't believe I've been an Opry member for 20 years,” said Wariner. “It's still one of the greatest honors of my career. I remember my first time on the Opry in 1973 as a member of Dottie West's band back at the Ryman as if it was just yesterday.  It seemed like an impossible dream back then that I would be asked to join…but it happened a few years later! Dreams can come true. Glad to call the Grand Ole Opry my home!"

Earlier in the evening, the Opry threw a backstage party for the ACM Award winner, complete with a special cake decorated with an illustration of Wariner’s red telecaster guitar.

The country music legend is currently in the studio working on a new album to be released later this year.  His next concert performance will be at City Winery in Nashville on June 11 at 8:00 PM during CMA Music Festival. The show will be filmed for a future project. Tickets can be purchased at https://t.e2ma.net/click/gm3ps/s73h3d/ge5tyh.

Wariner has achieved 14 No. 1 songs and more than 30 Top Ten hits, including such classics as “Holes in the Floor of Heaven,” “Life’s Highway,” “The Weekend,” “I’m Already Taken,” “I Got Dreams,” “Small Town Girl,” “Two Teardrops,” “Some Fools Never Learn,” “Lynda,” and more. An award-winning songwriter, Wariner has also composed songs for Clint Black (“Nothin’ But the Taillights”), Garth Brooks (“Longneck Bottle”), Bryan White (“One Small Miracle”), and Keith Urban (“Where the Blacktop Ends”), as well as artists such as Country Music Hall of Fame members Alabama, Kenny Rogers, The Statler Brothers, Conway Twitty, and Don Williams; pop music icon Peter Tork (of The Monkees); R&B singer Ruben Studdard; bluegrass music’s Del McCoury Band, and many more. Revered for his guitar talent, he was given the rare status of C.G. P. (Certified Guitar Player) by his mentor Chet Atkins. For more information, visit www.SteveWariner.com.
