Sister Hazel Overwhelming Challenges of Cancer Diagnosis

Sister Hazel’s 2nd Annual Camp Hazelnut A HUGE Success 

Camp Provides Uplifting Experience for Youth and Families Navigating the Overwhelming Challenges of Cancer Diagnosis



NASHVILLE, TN (October 25, 2016) -Platinum-selling group,  Sister Hazel, hosted the 2nd Annual "Camp Hazelnut" at Camp Crystal Lake outside Gainesville, FL October 21 – 23, 2016. Camp Hazelnut began with a simple goal: for the band to create a playful, safe, uplifting event for children and families navigating the overwhelming challenges of a cancer diagnosis and to get together with their fans (the Hazelnuts) to share a unique summer camp experience. This year, with triple the available spots for youth and families, forever friendships were made. The band members and camp counselors led activities including archery, water sports, arts and crafts, alpine tower ropes course, songwriting sessions, singalongs, and s’mores at the campfire. Sister Hazel partnered with Wyc Grousbeck, co-owner of the Boston Celtics, to make the event even more special. Grousbeck will once again sponsor Camp Hazelnut in 2017.

“Our 2nd Annual Camp Hazelnut was over the top this weekend!” said Ken Block, Sister Hazel’s lead singer.  “It’s hard to put into words what an amazing event this is. Hosting so many incredible kids and their families who are dealing with cancer is hugely inspirational. It was a great escape from the real world, and we all recharged and reconnected with extraordinary families, awesome Hazelnuts, incredible camp counselors, and unforgettable activities at Camp Crystal Lake in beautiful North Florida. This means an awful lot to me personally, having lost my own little brother to cancer when we were teenagers. We already can’t wait until next year!”

"Camp Hazelnut" is part of Sister Hazel's “Lyrics for Life Foundation” (www.lyricsforlife.org), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to make a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer. Sister Hazel frontman, Ken Block, and his band mates founded “Lyrics for Life” in memory of Ken’s younger brother, Jeffrey, who ultimately lost his four-year battle with cancer that started at age 14.

ABOUT SISTER HAZEL:

Originating from Gainesville, FL, Sister Hazel is comprised of five gifted, seasoned musicians whose well-spring of natural talent has been called "one of the Top 100 Most Influential Independent Performers of the last 15 years" by Performing Songwriter Magazine. Song "All for You" topped the adult alternative charts during the summer of 1997 and the success propelled their album to platinum status. Sister Hazel has been equally attentive to connecting with their audience through social media. In their first showing on the country music charts they made a strong debut with “Lighter In The Dark” at #4 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, #6 on Billboard’s Independent Albums chart, #30 on Billboard's Top Current Albums chart and #79 on the Billboard 200 album chart. Living up to their fan-centered reputation, the band hosts annual events like “Hazelnut Hang,” that focuses on fan involvement, and are co-founders of the “Rockboat,” a cruise featuring nonstop opportunities for fan/artist interaction. In addition to the events and touring, the band also gives back with “Lyrics for Life.” Founded by singer Ken Block, the charity unites musicians and celebrities for concerts and auctions to benefit cancer research and patient-care charities.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 25, 2016) – This past Friday, Country Music Hall of Fame members The Oak Ridge Boys paid tribute to their friend and collaborator, Johnny Cash, at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s 21st Annual Music Masters at Playhouse Square’s State Theatre in Cleveland. The Johnny Cash tribute concert, the pinnacle of a week of events paying tribute to the Man in Black, featured one-of-a-kind performances from The Oak Ridge Boys, Sam Bush, Paul Cauthen, Ana Cristina, Ira Dean, Nikki Lane, Terry McBride, Bill Miller, Charlie Worsham, Cash’s longtime drummer WS Holland, Mike Ness of Social Distortion, Eilen Jewell and L.A. punk band X, while John Carter Cash served as executive bandleader and keyboardist Tony Harrell as band director.

Drawing together music experts, artists, fans and friends, these events aim to provide new perspectives on some of the most beloved and influential musicians of the past century.

GARTH BROOKS CELEBRATES UNPRECEDENTED
SEVEN DIAMOND ALBUM CERTIFICATIONS WITH AN
UNFORGETTABLE NIGHT IN TENNESSEE


CMA "ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR" NOMINEE JOINED BY THOUSANDS OF
FANS ALONG WITH JASON ALDEAN, KELLY CLARKSON, REBA MCENTIRE,
CHRIS YOUNG, STEVE WARINER AND WIFE TRISHA YEARWOOD FOR ONE
OF A KIND SURPRISE PERFORMANCES


Fans Can Exclusively Preview Previously Unreleased Songs From
GARTH BROOKS: THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION On USA Today's "Listening Room” Now



Nashville, TN - Oct. 25, 2016 - CMA "Entertainer Of The Year" Nominee Garth Brooks marked the unrivaled achievement of becoming the first recording artist in the history of music to earn Seven Diamond Album Certifications from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) last night, as thousands of fans filled every inch of Ascend Amphitheater and descended on the surrounding streets of downtown Nashville, TN to celebrate the monumental milestone.

The atmosphere was palpable, as the festivities commenced with Governor of Tennessee, Bill Haslam welcoming the high-energy crowd by presenting Brooks with a congratulatory custom belt buckle with seven diamonds to highlight each of the awarded albums.  The evening continued as Brooks hosted a diverse group of surprise guests, including Jason Aldean, Kelly Clarkson, Reba McEntire, Chris Young, Steve Wariner and wife Trisha Yearwood.  The hand-picked selection of long-time friends and peers, as well as country music's superstars, brightest stars and icons, took the stage for a set of spine tingling performances. The revered guests all relished the unique opportunity to sing their chosen personal favorite songs from one of Brooks' Diamond Certified albums: Garth Brooks, No Fences, Ropin’ The Wind, The Hits, Double-Live, Sevens and The Ultimate Hits, all of which were recorded in the state of Tennessee.

With the audience in the palm of his hand, Brooks sustained the hit-filled set with seven more songs taken from his Diamond Certified albums, each one crescendoing into a city-wide singalong.  In a special moment, RIAA Gold & Platinum Program and Communications Director, Liz Kennedy Holman, then presented Brooks with his record-setting seventh Diamond Award. The unforgettable night's curtain call was marked by a rousing rendition of Brooks' infamous worldwide smash-hit "Friends In Low Places," for which he was joined back on stage by his earlier special guests, capped off by a breathtaking firework-filled finale.

A stacked-day of landmark events, Brooks also announced yesterday the official track-listing for his much-coveted GARTH BROOKS: THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION, a 10-disc boxed set available at Target, featuring Brooks’ upcoming studio album GUNSLINGER and nine discs of curated music from his unrivaled catalog. The collection features 18 previously unreleased tracks, and last night backstage at the show, during his weekly "Inside Studio G" Facebook series, Brooks revealed that fans can exclusively preview a selection of songs, as well as their all-time favorites included in the upcoming boxed set exclusively on USA Today's "Listening Room" at garth.usatoday.com.

GARTH BROOKS: THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION, will be released on Nov. 11, two weeks prior to Brooks’ upcoming album’s, GUNSLINGER, national standalone street date on Nov. 25. for Pearl Records, Inc.  The first single taken from GUNSLINGER, "Baby, Let's Lay Down And Dance," has instantly captivated country radio and critics with Rolling Stone praising that "the upbeat country tune with Southern rock-inspired guitar riffs has a timeless sound." During the pre-order for the upcoming boxed set, which began yesterday on Target.com, fans can purchase a limited-release holiday bundle – the 10-disc collection and CHRISTMAS TOGETHER, the first-ever duets album with Brooks and wife Trisha Yearwood.

Garth Brooks has received seven Diamond awards for seven individual albums from the RIAA for selling over ten million units each, a feat only he can claim, and is the No. 1 selling solo artist in U.S. history certified by the RIAA with over 138 million album sales. Throughout his illustrious career he has won the Billboard Music Artist Achievement Award, NACCP Image Award and has been inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, and the International Songwriters Hall of Fame in New York. Garth also just received his 11th nomination for Entertainer of the Year from the CMA Awards.

SHANE OWENS CHICKEN TRUCK

AMERIMONTE RECORDS RECORDING ARTIST SHANE OWENS SONG "CHICKEN TRUCK" PREMIERES ON SIRIUSXM OUTLAW COUNTRY CH. 60
Debut Album "Where I'm Comin' From" Available for Pre-order Now


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 25, 2016) - One of 2016's fastest rising stars, Shane Owens' song, "Chicken Truck," featuring Country legend John Anderson, premiered on SiriusXM Outlaw Country's Hillbilly Jim's Moonshine Matinee.  Owens' highly-anticipated debut album, Where I'm Comin' From, will be available through digital retailers beginning December 9.  Click here to pre-order Where I'm Comin' From.  Each album pre-order on iTunes will instantly receive "Chicken Truck" and the extended version of "Where I'm Comin' From."
"Chicken Truck," originally recorded by John Anderson in 1981, reached No. 8 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart.  "I have always looked up to John Anderson.  When it came time to put the album together I wanted to include "Chicken Truck."  The song is as country as it gets and speaks to me being from Alabama!  I am honored that he agreed to join me on the track, I hope everyone loves the song as much as I do," said Owens.

 
Former WWE superstar Hillbilly Jim and his good-for-nothing cousin Spike have set up a white lightnin' still in Mudlick, Kentucky to serve up 200 proof Country and southern-fried rock & roll every weekend.

Live Audience Encouraged to Bring an Unwrapped Toy to the Taping to Make the Holidays Brighter for Area Children in Need
NASHVILLE – Multi-talented entertainer Jennifer Nettles returns to host “CMA Country Christmas” as some of the most powerful and emotionally moving voices in music come together to celebrate the holidays.

The popular holiday special is slated to air on the ABC Television Network on Monday, Nov. 28 (8:00-10:00 PM/ET). 
“The taping of ‘CMA Country Christmas’ has become a treasured holiday tradition for Nashville families,” said Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “And watching ‘CMA Country Christmas’ on ABC is equally important as generations gather to celebrate the season.”
Nettles, who is hosting the special for the seventh time this year, will release her first holiday album, To Celebrate Christmas, Oct. 28 on Big Machine Records. Special collaborations highlight lush harmonies with Idina Menzel on “Little Drummer Boy,” the jazz-influenced melody of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman” alongside American-soul sensation Andra Day, and “Circle of Love” penned by friend and mentor Dolly Parton. The Grammy-winning singer/songwriter has kept a full schedule this year, releasing her critically-acclaimed sophomore album, Playing With Fire, joining label mates Cheap Trick for a “CMT Crossroads” that earned a CMT Music Awards nomination for Performance of the Year and headlining the 30+ city “CMT Next Women of Country Tour” across the U.S. and Canada alongside Brandy Clark, Lindsey Ell, and Tara Thompson.

In 2015, through a partnership with ABC Television Network and the U.S. Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots program, CMA collected more than 5,000 unwrapped gifts.
“Providing new toys for deserving children shines a spotlight on a worthy endeavor and reflects the values and spirit of giving found in our artists, industry, and city,” Trahern said.
