YOU AIN'T NEVER BEEN TO TEXAS,' THE NEW ALBUM FROM JOHNNY LEE, AVAILABLE TODAY

'YOU AIN'T NEVER BEEN TO TEXAS,' THE NEW ALBUM FROM JOHNNY LEE, AVAILABLE TODAY


Anticipated New Record Is Lee's First Studio Album In Ten Years
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 3, 2016) You Ain’t Never Been To Texas, the highly-anticipated album from country legend Johnny Lee, is available now. Lee, known for his dynamic stage presence and smash No. 1 crossover hit "Lookin' for Love," blends traditional, organic country that purists long for in You Ain’t Never Been To Texas, which landed an exclusive premiere of the title track on The Boot. The album is also featured in One Stop Country, Country Music Chat Live, Backstage Axxess, Journal Sentinel, The Pickup and many more.

“I’ve been holding on to some of these songs for years and wanted to wait until it was just the right time to release You Ain’t Never Been To Texas. We’re on the road more than ever and I’m blessed because of that, so I wanted to give the fans some new music that I really think they’ll enjoy,” Lee said.

You Ain’t Never Been To Texas, distributed by Smith Music Group, includes 12 tracks that showcase Lee’s honky-tonk country storytelling with an edge, including the Bob Wills-penned “Deep Water” and the smooth pedal-steeled “Never Been to Texas,” co-written by Roger Springer, Tony Raymee and Jerry Lane. The record also includes 10 other tracks that exemplify Lee’s baritone on cuts like the feisty “Bullets First.”

Lee’s longtime fans are still transfixed when he belts out his smash 1980 hit "Lookin' for Love," which became a crossover hit, spending three weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Singles chart while also appearing in the Top 5 on the Billboard Pop chart and Top 10 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart. In addition to "Lookin' for Love," Lee had a string of hit No. 1 songs reach the top: "One in a Million," "Bet Your Heart on Me,” "The Yellow Rose" (a duet with Lane Brody and the theme song to the NBC TV-series of the same name) and "You Could Have Heard a Heartbreak." Lee’s other major hits include "Pickin' Up Strangers," "Prisoner of Hope," "Cherokee Fiddle," "Sounds Like Love," "Hey Bartender," "Rollin' Lonely," and "Save the Last Chance."

‘YOU AIN’T NEVER BEEN TO TEXAS’ TRACK LISTING:
  1. Lonesome Love List
  2. What’s Forever For
  3. Who’s Left, Who’s Right

DAN + SHAY RELEASE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED NEW ALBUM OBSESSED, AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE NOW

Duo to perform on upcoming episode of ABC’s Live! With Kelly

Featured in AUDIENCE Network special tonight at 8/7c

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - (June 3, 2016) - Platinum-selling country duo Dan + Shay (Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney) released their second Warner Bros. / Warner Music Nashville album, Obsessed today, available in stores and digitally now. The album, which follows their No. 1-peaking debut Where It All Began, was produced by Smyers and the award-winning Scott Hendricks. In celebration of the new release, the duo will appear on ABC’s Live! With Kelly on Wednesday, June 8.

To coincide with album release, the AUDIENCE Network will air a “Dan + Shay” concert special this evening at 8/7c on DIRECTV Channel 239/U-verse Channel 114. The special features exclusive interviews and performances of songs including “How Not To,” “Already Ready,” “19 You + Me” and “From the Ground Up.”

“From the Ground Up,” the lead single from Obsessed, was the most added song at country radio two weeks before official impact date and was their fastest rising single to date upon release. The song has already racked up more than 16 million streams and has consistently sold nearly 25,000 track equivalents per week. Written by Dan + Shay with Chris DeStefano and co-produced by Smyers and Scott Hendricks, it has been Top 10 on the Shazam country chart for seven straight weeks.

In anticipation of the album release, Dan + Shay have also released special companion videos for four of the 10 tracks from Obsessed. After starting by revealing “Already Ready” as part of their Facebook “Artist of the Day Feature,” the duo subsequently released videos for “Road Trippin’,” and “How Not To” as well as the title track, “Obsessed.” The name for the song and ultimately the album was directly inspired by fans, who posted the hashtag “#obsessed” all over social media upon the release of “From the Ground Up.”

In addition to the launch of their brand new album, Dan + Shay are celebrating the RIAA Gold certification of their first No. 1 single “Nothin’ Like You,” which was recently nominated for CMT’s Group/Duo Video of the Year Award.

Dan + Shay will join Darius Rucker to kick off the Good for a Good Time Tour today in Tampa, FL.

TOWNE Releases Music Video For Debut Single, Runnin' Into You

TOWNE Releases Music Video For Debut Single, Runnin' Into You

Nashville-based powerhouse duo, TOWNE, (previously The Devious Angels) are proud to announce the release of the music video for their soul grabbing debut single, Runnin’ Into You, which was penned by the duo and showcases Steevie’s exhilarating vocals leaving the listener craving more.  Jon and Steevie explained, "We wrote Runnin' Into You not long after we chose to pursue music rather than a romantic relationship. It’s all about constantly seeing your ex every time you turn around and everywhere you go, physically and literally…seeing how we work with each other, it was a pretty easy one to write." Videographer Seth Graves helped bring Jon and Steevie’s lyrics to life with the creation of the official music video below. 
 
TOWNE consists of Pennsylvania bred, music theater geek Steevie Steeves and straight-from-Kentucky, former bassist for punk-rock band The Pink Spiders, Jon Decious. The two talents unexpectedly crossed paths at Skip Ewing’s Horse and Writer Seminar in Wyoming where they immediately connected musically. The result of that chance meeting led to the formation of one of Nashville’s most brilliant up-and-coming duos and their debut project, “Games We Play.” 
Although they have traveled two different paths, the forks in their roads eventually had them heading in the same direction. When they began writing together, TOWNE’s sound started taking shape. The power and passion behind their music was incomparable. Their distinctive style mixes homegrown sentiment with dive bar rock-n-roll. The organic blend of their soulful edge with Americana southern roots makes them extremely unique. The iconic 60’s influences of Fleetwood Mac, James Taylor, and Carole King shine through their voices in every performance. Steevie and Jon’s musical fate finally caught up to them, and the result is both enchanting and wicked; in the words of Decious, “You can outgrow your boots, but you can’t outrun your boots, or at least that’s what I think they say.”
