Clay Walker Showing How It's Done At 3rd & Lindsley

Put one classic Nashville venue and one classic country music hit maker and artist to throw a benefit show together, and you’ll have a night guaranteed to end up in the music history book of perfection.   That is what happened Wednesday night at 3rd & Lindsley when Clay Walker held his seventh annual benefit for Band Against MS and Multiple Sclerosis research at Vanderbilt Medical Center.

The once quarterback football player gave everyone caboom for their greenbacks with his entertaining showmanship – or may I say cowboyship – from beginning till end.  Before his segment of the night started though, there were two not so unknown openers for him themselves in the shapes of Craig Campbell and Joe Nichols.  Nichols was the first to enter the stage along with two guitarists and singers who also blended high pitched harmony very well accompanying Nichols’s smooth baritone.  It was an unplugged and intimate feel to the performance, which started with his hits “Yeah” and “That Girl”, and the living room concert feeling in its broader sense carried all the way to the expected and beloved “Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off” - all to the crowd’s sing-a-long contentment.  He also gave us all a special treat with his new single “Undone”, which is being released to radio this coming Monday.

Country music fans care about not only hearing songs about the genre typical two L’s (liquor and love), but also about topics discussing divine matters and that was proven when the famous pin could be heard dropped during Craig Campbell the one-man band-with-only-a-guitar performance of “Outskirts Of Heaven” – a song about where he wants to live when he dies.  He also had another crowd pleaser in “Fish”, which plays with metaphors that plant themselves in your imagination.

For the main attraction of the night nothing was spared in visuals and musical and entertaining excellence.  Clay Walker is high energy personified and gave 3rd & Lindsley’s music lovers a show leaving everyone feeling they just went to an arena concert complete with background videos and all.  His musicians had fun on stage too and looked like they were playing each song for the very first time.  

That Walker was rockin’ da house is a clear understatement, because there was not a soul in the room whose attention he did not get.  Walker started his high powered one and a half hour set out with “Little Miss Whiskey” and “Live, Laugh, Love”, which turned the party up seven notches in an instant.  Then the crowd did not miss a beat singing the entire chorus of “If I Could Make A Living”, because even when the band completely stopped playing, the audience was on time and in tune.  An audience by the way that was comprised of mostly Nashvillians, but Californians and Buckeyes (Ohioans) cheerfully acknowledged their presence too when the hosts Tige and Daniel from the radio station The Big 98 asked before the show started.  Many of the attendees were huge Clay Walker fans which was proven when the Beaumont, Texas native started throwing merchandise out and one lady caught a t-shirt and held it fondly - hugging it as if embracing a loved one.  Another gentleman by the front of the stage was rewarded with a towel after he emphatically sang along with and distinctively waved his arm to reinforce every word of “What’s It To You”, Walker’s first no. one hit song.  The entire show felt like one, big chain of hit songs – and was too, because he has so far had eleven songs that have reached number one.  Not one hit can be mentioned above the other, really, but when Walker sang “Live Until I Die”, that song in its MS benefit context took on a deeper meaning, especially since Walker himself was diagnosed with MS in 1996.  He had some special, invited VIP guests as well, where one was a doctor from Vanderbilt.  Vanderbilt’s MS research is one of the beneficiaries of the benefit.  All in all, the night of Texas showmanship ended with everyone in a great mood and I could even hear voices singing Clay Walker songs out on the streets of Nashville as the crowd went to their respective cars, taxis, shuttles, homes or into the buzzing Nashville night.

The RED BOW Records’ Artist, In Partnership With Fight Colorectal Cancer (Fight CRC), Raises Awareness For Colorectal Cancer Education, Research And Prevention

NASHVILLE, TN (June 9, 2016) - RED BOW Records’ artist Craig Campbell hosted the “4th Annual Craig Campbell Celebrity Cornhole Challenge” Tuesday (6/7) in honor of his late father who lost his battle with the disease at age 36. Fellow country stars Blackjack Billy, Brett Kissel, Canaan Smith, Jerrod Niemann, Kristian Bush, Lauren Alaina, Mary Sarah, Matt Stillwell, Michael Ray, Thompson Square, Trailer Choir and wife Mindy played in support of this year’s event in downtown Nashville, TN. The tournament came down to Team Canaan Smith and Team Craig Campbell, with the event’s host ultimately being crowned the winner for 2016. As a national spokesperson for the cause, Campbell strives to raise awareness and funds for colorectal cancer education, research and prevention. This year, the event raised over $35,000.
“We had a huge day! All my friends came out, we raised a ton of money and I feel like we educated more people about colon cancer,” enthused Campbell. “Success!”
Campbell is currently climbing the country radio charts with new single “Outskirts of Heaven” that he co-wrote with Dave Turnbull (Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton) and Rolling Stone Country describes as “a ballad with a sweeping, Nineties-style twang.” Following 2015’s “Tomorrow Tonight,” he has been in the studio with producer Mickey Jack Cones working on his RED BOW Records debut album. Having shared the stage with Randy Houser, Alan Jackson, The Band Perry, Jerrod Niemann and Justin Moore, he is currently touring across the U.S. and will be playing major fairs and festivals throughout the summer.

Campbell launched on to the country music scene with the release of his self-titled debut album (2011) delivering the hits “Family Man,” “Fish,” and “When I Get It.” To date, he has logged five consecutive charted hits with over a billion radio airplay audience impressions and over a half million downloads. Acclaimed as one of the genre's most neo-traditionalist singers, his Top 15 breakout debut “Family Man” was featured on HBO’s True Blood and fan-favorite “Fish” has tallied nearly 400,000 digital copies sold. Campbell earned his first Top 10 smash with the infectious “Keep Them Kisses Comin’” from his sophomore album NEVER REGRET (2013). The gifted songwriter co-wrote Garth Brooks "All American Kid" off of MAN AGAINST THE MACHINE. Prior to landing his first record deal, the Lyons, GA native spent time on the road playing keyboard for both Tracy Byrd and Luke Bryan - shows that inspired him nightly. He was soon discovered while playing a regular gig at the downtown Nashville honky-tonk, The Stage.

Fight Colorectal Cancer is a leading colorectal cancer nonprofit in Washington, D.C. Through patient education, advocacy and research funding, the group spreads awareness and demands a cure for the second-leading killer in the United States. As the leading advocacy group, the organization serves as a resource for colorectal cancer patients, grassroots advocates, policy makers, medical professionals and health care providers.

Die große Phil Collins-Retrospektive geht in die finale Runde: Diesen Freitag erscheinen mit “…But Seriously” sowie einer überarbeiteten Fassung seines jüngsten Studioalbums “The Essential Going Back” die beiden letzten Alben der erfolgreichen “Take A Look At Me Now”-Reissue-Serie.
Ursprünglich Ende 1989 veröffentlicht, enthält “…But Seriously” einige seiner größten Hits und wurde so zu einem der bestverkauften Alben seiner Ära. “Going Back” erschien 2010 mit Neuinterpretationen bekannter Motown- und Soul-Standards, die sein Schaffen inspirierten.
Wie bereits die bisherigen Alben der Serie, wurden auch diese beiden Alben von Nick Davis remastered und sind auf 180g-Vinyl, CD und digital erhältlich. Die CD-/Digital-Version enthält außerdem exklusive Demos, Live-Aufnahmen und B-Seiten.

Mit seinem Smash-Hit “Ego” und dem Schlachtruf “Allez, allez, allez” startete der französische DJ, Produzent und Remixer Willy William Anfang des Jahres seinen überaus erfolgreichen, musikalischen Feldzug durch Europa und eroberte die Charts im Sturm. Im März erschien sein Album “Une Seule Vie”.
Hier gibt es das ebenso überzeugende, ästhetisch hochwertige Musikvideo zu “Ego” im Warner-eigenen YouTube-Channel zu sehen, das weltweit bereits 35 Mio. Views zählt. Parallel zur Fußball-EM in Frankreich, performt William am 12. Juni die Hit-Single im ZDF Fernsehgarten – live ab 11:50 Uhr.
Aufgewachsen bei Le Mans, als Kind einer äthiopischen Mutter und eines guadeloupianischen Vaters, brachte sich Willy William schon früh das Spielen mehrerer Instrumente bei. So wurde Musik bei ihm zum Ausdruck einer Lebenseinstellung.

Im Zuge der elektrisierenden Lead-Single “Handclap” zelebrieren Fitz And The Tantrums morgen die Veröffentlichung ihres neuen, selbstbetitelten Albums und übertreffen sich wiedermal selbst: “ Mit unserem dritten Album haben wir uns erneut selbst herausgefordert und alles daran gesetzt, uns nicht zu wiederholen”, so Michael Fitzpatrick.
Zeitgleich zum Erscheinen ihres neuen Longplayers startet die für ihre “fesselnden und verrückten” (Washington Post) Live-Shows sowie für ihre “unzähmbare Energie” (Rolling Stone) berüchtigte Band auf Headliner-Tour durch Nordamerika.
Auf dem neuen Album dreht sich alles um Begehren, genauer gesagt, um unser Begehren nach Intimität, Sex und Akzeptanz, ohne dafür Kompromisse eingehen zu müssen. Hier gibt es als ersten Vorgeschmack daraus “Handclap” zu hören.

Die Spannung steigt, denn in Kürze erscheint das neue Werk der Band um Alina Süggeler und Andi Weizel, alias Frida Gold. Als ersten, eindrucksvollen Vorboten schickten die Wahlberliner kürzlich die Single “Wir sind zuhaus” ins Rennen, laut Alina “[…] eine intensive, innige Begegnung von Mensch zu Mensch”, die es hier im Video zu sehen gibt.

2010 schon eroberten Frida Gold mit ihrer Single “Wovon sollen wir träumen” die Herzen ihrer Fans. Ihr Debütalbum “Juwel” wurde schließlich mit Gold ausgezeichnet. Der Nachfolger “Liebe ist meine Religion” katapultierte sich an die Spitze der deutschen Charts und heimste ihnen zwei ECHO-Nominierungen ein.

Im Herbst kehren Frida Gold mit ihrem extrovertierten und zugleich aufrichtigen Pop sowie neuen, bombastischen Produktionen zurück auf deutsche Bühnen, um zu begeistern:
