Eileen Carey at the Canyon Club, in Agoura Hills, California, with Nelson, this Friday, Sept 16

Eileen Carey at the Canyon Club, in Agoura Hills, California, with Nelson, this Friday, Sept 16 and in the Studio, Recording with Producer Travis Allen Childress the follow up to In The Air.

Multi-multi award winning California Country – Pop singer-songwriter Eileen Carey is at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills, California this coming Friday evening September 16, a popular venue in the suburbs of Los Angeles, opening for the platinum act Nelson. Gunnar and Matthew Nelson are the grandsons of the legendary family television stars Ozzie and Harriet; and therefore sons of the equally legendary Ricky Nelson, and television star Mark Harmon’s nephews. “Seriously, I am looking forward to seeing the headliner, Gunnar and Matthew. I really like their songs,” says Eileen.

Carey is currently in the process of recording her fifth career album with producer Travis Allen Childress, having just released the first single, “In The Air.” The charting In The Air, an inspirational ode to “love over hate,” is certainly to the pop side of Eileen’s country; but Carey is the first to tell you, her influences were often pop artists growing up, and are to this day. Bruno Mars is, in fact, her professed favorite artist this year!

Eileen Carey is unplugging at the Canyon Club, as she will October 11 at Matt Denny’s Songwriter Serenade Series in Arcadia, CA. “Helps you learn your own new songs,” Carey says. “I am in negotiation for a couple more shows before the end of the year as well.”

A Day At “Larry’s Country Diner”

A Day At “Larry’s Country Diner”

The tables are set with blue and white checkered cloths and blue plastic cups.  There are waitresses carrying out baskets with food, there is live music, a jukebox against a wall and a restaurant manager with his assistant manager mingling and entertaining the dinner guests.  It could be Anywhere, USA, but huge lights are on and the cameras are rolling:  we are in a TV studio experiencing a taping of the popular RFD-TV show “Larry’s Country Diner”.

But, before anything commences, as around so many other tables around America and beyond, Larry Black, the show’s host, leads the assembled in a prayer.  He thanks the Lord above for our blessings, and the dinner service, I mean the show, can begin. 
After the countdown from the floor manager, Larry’s sidekick and award winning media personality Keith Bilbrey welcomes everyone to the program in his familiar cheerful and humoristic manner.  Larry carries his entertainment duties with pleasurable ease and it feels like being in someone’s living room or being part of a cozy gathering where everyone knows everybody – and everyone feels welcome.  In addition to the jovial and homey atmosphere, the dining customers and perfectly staged prop, they have music incorporated into the program on both the invisible jukebox - where random numbers are called out and the corresponding songs are played – and by live music guests.  On the day we were there, the four music guests – part of four different shows – were John Berry, 45 RPM, Wilson Fairchild and Bill Anderson.   At this diner the music performances are cued spontaneously by the host between relaxed chit chat and often epigrammatic jokes delivered from both Black and Bilbrey.  Even though the artists are headliners in their own right, the dining room’s unpretentious living room feel is well kept by the entertainers’ natural professionalism often accompanied by the well renowned and respected guitarist Jimmy Capps, who in this show carries the nickname “The Sheriff”.   Everyone working on the production team is at the right place at the right time too, and it feels as if the cameras aren’t even there.  After all, the show’s motto is “Where the cameras are rolling and we don’t care”.  That includes the beautiful, silver-haired and sweet smiling waitress Renae as well, who is comfortably and effortlessly carrying her country kitchen delicacies to the patrons and injecting humoristic comments as appropriate.  Speaking of humor, when one least expects it, Nadine, the church lady with a presence that can fill any room, enters and delivers one spontaneous joke after another.   You can tell she is as appreciated as any of the other cast members by the welcoming applause and lit up faces among the present.  “Larry’s Country Diner” is a unique concept that really has found its appreciative audience.  After all, they have 1.4 million viewers each month.

The Kentucky Headhunters Return From The Rock N' Roll Jungle With 12th Studio Album – Click Here To Preorder Now
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (September 12, 2016) – With nearly 50 years of success spanning multiple genres, The Kentucky Headhunters are gearing up for the November 4 release of On Safari, available for preorder here. The southern rock, soon-to-be classic project tips the hat to family and the southern way of life. Click here to watch a behind-the-scenes video of the band in the studio recording On Safari.

On Safari, a Plowboy Records/Practice House Records joint venture, comes after several life-changing events for The Kentucky Headhunters. Band members Richard and Fred Young lost their father just three days before heading into the studio to record On Safari, causing the Headhunters to pour even more emotion into the record, which they have dedicated to the memory of their father.

Coming off the heels of their first-ever European tour, The Kentucky Headhunters are reinventing themselves yet again for their 12th studio album, drawing inspiration from their recent travels across the pond. The band credits Richard Young’s son, John Fred, and his bandmates of Black Stone Cherry for pushing them out of their comfort zone to make the trek overseas, where many of the Headhunters’ rock influences call home.

“What makes you weak, makes you stronger,” says rhythm guitar player and vocalist Richard Young of the band’s experiences together in 2016.

That quote seems to be the theme for On Safari, and southern rock fans can be certain of a strong showing by the GRAMMY award-winning group. Touted by Billboard as a “great American rock ‘n’ roll band,” The Kentucky Headhunters continue to bring their rocking, energetic live show across the U.S. and Canada, showcasing the one of a kind sound that has given them the longevity in this industry that many acts only dream of.

About The Kentucky Headhunters:
Known as “Southern Rock Royalty” and the “great American rock ‘n’ roll band,” The Kentucky Headhunters have maintained a longevity most acts can only dream about. With a GRAMMY® Award, two Top 10 charting albums, four consecutive Top 40 hits and countless other honors, The “Heads” are credited for creating a unique blend of honky-tonk, blues, and southern rock that appeals to the toughest music critics and listeners of all kinds. Getting their start in 1968, brothers Fred and Richard Young and cousins Greg Martin and Anthony Kenney, from Edmonton, Kentucky, formed Itchy Brother, which later morphed into The Kentucky Headhunters after Kenney departed and Doug Phelps joined the band. Their first album, Pickin’ On Nashville, (1989), surprised the world when it became a major success, selling over two million copies. Their 2015 release Meet Me in Bluesland, included the last vocals ever recorded of the late, great pianist Johnnie Johnson — Rock N Roll Hall of Famer and legendary keyboardist for Chuck Berry. The album reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Blues Album chart the week of its debut. It also garnered top placement on the Billboard Americana Chart. The band’s forthcoming Fall 2016 release On Safari is a southern rock album that tips the hat to family and the southern way of life. The Kentucky Headhunters still tour extensively throughout the United States and Canada, and recently completed their first-ever European tour.

Ty Herndon House On Fire

Ty Herndon Set to Release Much Anticipated
New Album, “House On Fire” Nov. 11

Distributed exclusively by BFD through Sony/RED Distribution

(Nashville, Tenn. – Sept. 12, 2016)  Country recording artist Ty Herndon has signed with BFD through Sony/RED Distribution, and will release his much-anticipated, full-length album House On Fire on Nov. 11, with pre-order starting Oct 12. The signing marks Herndon’s return to the Sony family, where he made his chart-topping debut in the mid-90s.

Dewayne Brown of Sony/RED Nashville states, “We are very excited to be working with Ty again.  As soon as I heard this amazing project I couldn’t wait to share it with the world.”

Herndon’s 20-year career has resulted in an impressive string of hits, which includes four number 1’s (“What Mattered Most,” “Living in a Moment,” “It Must Be Love,” “Loved Too Much”), as well as numerous top 10 hits, including “I Want My Goodbye Back,” “Loved Too Much,” “A Man Holding On (To a Woman Letting Go),” and “Hands of a Working Man.” With 20 Billboard charted singles to his credit, numerous industry awards, and more than 5 million albums sold, Ty Herndon’s journey is reaching new heights with the release of his forthcoming album.

House On Fire is a collection of 12 new contemporary songs, co-produced by Herndon and Erik Halbig, with Drew Davis joining as co-producer on six of the songs.  Track by track, Herndon has made some of the most engaging, meaningful and fulfilling music of his career.  Featuring Herndon’s powerful trademark vocals, the new album is already receiving critical accolades from the Nashville music community and showcases a deeper, greater strength from a man who has been there and back and has lived to tell about it. House on Fire is the next evolution of Ty Herndon.

Herndon discussed House On Fire, stating “This album is 18-months in the making. The writing was intense at times, but we had a lot of fun throughout the process! This album is Ty Herndon to the very core of my heart and it is without a doubt the most honest and vulnerable album I've ever done. It is an album about heart and soul, with songs that everyone can relate to. My hope is that anyone who hears these songs will catch a small piece of his or her life through the music and my story.”

Bob Frank of BFD commented, “House on Fire is one of the best albums I’ve heard in the last 10 years.  Ty has demonstrated once again that he is one of the best male vocalists in the format.” Chuck Rhodes of BFD/Nashville added, “I have been a Ty Herndon fan since ‘What Mattered Most.’  When I first heard this new project, I was reminded that he is still making great music. The hardest decision we would have in this process is trying to figure out what song to lead with!” 

Herndon recently debuted songs from the album to enthusiastic fans in London as a headliner act for the Nashville Meets London festival, an appearance that led to international radio airplay and expansive media coverage.
