Sunny Sweeney und Jamie Lin Wilson Exklusivauftritt in Deutschland

Deutschland-Debüt für zwei texanische Singer-Songwriterinnen

Kulturgewächshaus Birkenried jubelt


Gundelfingen-Birkenried Am Sonntag erlebte das Kulturgewächshaus Birkenried auf Einladung der Country Friends Kötz e.V. einen Abend mit texanischer Singer-Songwriter-Musik erster Güte. Auf ihrer ersten gemeinsamen Tournee machten Sunny Sweeney und Jamie Lin Wilson erstmals auch für einen Exklusivauftritt Station in Deutschland. Hierzu waren viele Gäste, zum Teil aus großer Entfernung angereist.

Eröffnet hat den Abend Tobias Panwitz aus Berlin, der als Trailhead bekannt ist und im Rahmen einer kleinen Süddeutschland-Tournee seine jüngste CD vorstellt. Da er am Sonntag, den 09. Oktober von 14 bis 17 Uhr im Birkenried die Sonntags-Matinee spielen wird, gabs Gelegenheit für ihn, schon mal einige seiner Lieder zur eigenen Gitarre zu präsentieren.

Sodann konnte er sich zurücklehnen, und nach nahtlosem Wechsel wie das Publikum den Stimmen und Liedern von Sunny Sweeney und Jamie Lin Wilson lauschen. Sunny Sweeny kommt aus dem nördlichen Osten von Texas, Jamie Lin Wilson aus dem südlichen Osten des riesigen Lonestar State. Abwechselnd trugen sie ihre Lieder jeweils zur eigenen akustischen Gitarre vor, teilweise mit gegenseitiger Unterstützung. Jamie Lin Wilson hatte zudem die Mundharmonika im Einsatz.

Auch wenn Sunny Sweeney aufgrund dreier Hits in den Billboard Country Charts, darunter dem Top 10 Hit „From A Table Away“ die zunächst bekanntere Künstlerin gewesen sein dürfte, konnte Jamie Lin Wilson mit ihrem kleinen schwarzen Hut, ihren langen dunklen Haaren und ihrer coolen Ausstrahlung ebenso punkten. Stimmlich war sie mit ihrer wärmeren Stimme vielleicht sogar einen Kick angenehmer, denn die Gesamtlautstärke war für akustische Musik erstaunlich hoch.

Sunny Sweeney brachte natürlich „From A Table Away“, während Jamie Lin Wilson z.B. ein Lied über ihr altes Auto Baujahr 1975 „Old Oldsmobile“ sang. Das Auto geht zurück auf den Anfang ihrer Ehe vor 12 Jahren, und ist heute noch ein Familienmitglied, fast wie die drei Kinder. Aus dem Repertoire ihrer Band „The Trishas“ hatte Jamie Lin Wilson z.B. „John Wayne Cowboy“ dabei, das mit ironischer Verschmitztheit ihren Schwiegervater mit dem knorrigen Schauspieler vergleicht.

Mehre Runden Zugaben holte sich das begeisterte Publikum heraus, bei denen die Künstlerinnen auch auf Waylon Jennings und Willie Nelson’s Klassiker „Good Hearted Woman“ zurückgriffen. Ansonsten waren meist die eigenen Lieder am Start, die häufig persönliche Einblicke in Erlebnisse und das Seelenleben der Künstlerinnen gaben, ganz im Sinne der geschätzten Singer-Songwriter Tradition von Texas, insbesondere der Studentenstadt Austin, in der Sunny Sweeney lebt.

Ausblick: Am Freitag, den 28. Oktober kommen The Po‘ Ramblin‘ Boys aus Tennessee im Quintett zurück ins Birkenried, wo sie im August 2015 beim dortigen Bluegrass Festival stürmisch gefeiert wurden. Info und Reservierung unter www.cwf-koetz.de (Friedrich Hog)

RASCAL FLATTS WRAPS


RASCAL FLATTS WRAPS "ALWAYS ENERGETIC, VERY ENTERTAINING" HEADLINING TOUR
CMA "Vocal Group Of The Year" Nominee's 16th No. One Single
"I Like The Sound Of That" Reaches PLATINUM Status


Nashville, TN - Oct. 10, 2016 -  CMA "Vocal Group Of The Year" Nominee Rascal Flatts wrapped their wildly successful headlining Rhythm And Roots Tour this past weekend, in a trek that saw the superstar trio play to packed houses across the country throughout the summer and into the fall.  A summer stacked with highlights, the tour also saw the trio celebrate a major milestone of 10 million tickets sold to date, as critics and fans alike relished in the group's ability to execute standout performances year after year.

"The "Rhythm and Roots" tour [crowd] was dressed for a good time...And that's exactly what they were in for when award-winning country trio Rascal Flatts took the stage." - Arizona Republic

"After 16 consecutive years on tour: They have this live performance bit down to a science without losing any of the enthusiasm or heart." - Charlotte Observer

"They commanded the stage from the first song all the way to the end of the encore. Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney entertained everyone, from those in the front all the way to the lawn seats." - Sounds Like Nashville

"[The crowd] got what they came for and have come to expect from the country-pop trio: an always energetic, very entertaining 90 minutes or so of hits and banter." - St. Louis Post Dispatch

"The fun continued throughout their set, but so did the hits...High energy tracks “Summer Nights,” “I Like the Sound of That” and “Banjo” kicked off the show before the group slowed things down with a medley of their piano-based ballads including “Come Wake Me Up,” “I Melt” and “I Won’t Let Go.” - Taste Of Country

This summer also marked Rascal Flatts' 16th No. One, with the infectious hit-single "I Like The Sound Of That," that was also recently certified PLATINUM by The RIAA. The news comes as it was announced that the trio will release THE GREATEST GIFT OF ALL, their first-ever Christmas album, on Oct. 21.  The much-anticipated 10-track collection was produced by Rascal Flatts and features moving and powerhouse performances that the trio is known for, while offering personal touches to some fan-favorite staples of the festive season.  The album is available for pre-order now at www.rascalflatts.com.

Currently nominated for CMA Awards Vocal Group of the Year, Rascal Flatts has sold over 23.1 million albums,  32 million digital downloads worldwide, as well as earning over 40 trophies from the ACAs, ACMs, AMAs, CMAs, People's Choice Awards and more,  making them the most awarded country group of the past decade.  For more information, visit rascalflatts.com.

CRAIG CAMPBELL GAME IN DENVER BRONCOS VS. ATLANTA FALCONS

CRAIG CAMPBELL PERFORMS THE NATIONAL ANTHEM AT THE "SALUTE TO SURVIVORS" DENVER BRONCOS VS. ATLANTA FALCONS GAME IN DENVER, CO (10/9)




NASHVILLE, TN (October 10, 2016) – RED BOW Records’ artist Craig Campbell performed the national anthem at the “Salute to Survivors” game in Denver, CO (10/9). Although the Atlanta Falcons are Campbell’s home team he donned a Denver Broncos shirt with pink to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The singer-songwriter left the game happy as the Falcons defeated the Broncos, who were previously undefeated, with a score of 23-16.

“It's always an honor to sing our national anthem but it's extra special to sing it on a day we celebrate and salute the survivors,” says Campbell. “Overcoming and winning against breast cancer is the greatest victory and I was glad to be a part of their day."

In addition to his current single, “Outskirts of Heaven,” ascending the country radio charts and a heavy tour schedule, Campbell is keeping busy with his husband/father duties. Sounds Like Nashville is uncovering how the country singer continues to prove he’s the dream husband and father in the weekly #HusbandGoals column. Whether it be a photograph of Campbell going with his girls to a father/daughter dance or making some of us blush with a picture of him and wife Mindy sharing a kiss, it’s easy to see how he keeps his family going strong.

Campbell recently performed “Outskirts of Heaven” on NBC’s TODAY, which released to rave reviews across media and fans alike. After Rolling Stone Country featured an exclusive “First Listen” to the track that he wrote alongside Dave Turnbull, fans praised the ballad saying it “brought me to tears,” “gave me chills,” and claimed “this is what country music is supposed to sound like.”

Following 2015’s “Tomorrow Tonight,” Campbell has been in the studio working on his RED BOW Records debut album. Previously sharing the stage with Randy Houser, Alan Jackson, The Band Perry, Jerrod Niemann, and Justin Moore, he is currently touring across the U.S. with more dates to be announced soon.

ABOUT CRAIG CAMPBELL:
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.
