CD Review: Bobby Tomberlin - OUT OF ROAD

OUT OF ROAD (Curb Music)
Bobby Tomberlin


My friend Bobby Tomberlin is a member of a fairly exclusive ‘club’ … a hit songwriter who really can sing on a par with any of today’s major Country artists.  He’s been involved in the music business since he was eleven and has been a staff writer at Curb Records Publishing for 14+ years, writing or co-writing songs cut by Diamond Rio (“One More Day”), Kenny Rogers, The Oak Ridge Boys, Lee Greenwood, Josh Turner and many more.

The immaculately produced (by Tomberlin and PJ West) OUT OF ROAD serves as the ideal showcase, not only of Tomberlin’s writing chops, but also of his fine voice and spot-on delivery.   The album features a number of his Nashville buddies, both as co-writers (such as Dean Dillon, Mo Pitney, Mac Davis) and guest vocalists (Vince Gill, Bill Anderson, Bobby Bare, Hillary Williams and more).

Bobby obviously has a great respect for what’s known as ‘classic country’ but avoids wallowing in nostalgia for a musical past: his songs will appeal to fans of traditional country but, at the same time, they are firmly rooted in the here and now.

The eleven-song package kicks off with the (sort of) title track. “I’ve Run Out Of Road,” penned by Tomberlin, Dean Dillon & Mo Pitney, tells the story of a guy who’ll ‘never get her off my mind / shoulda never said goodbye.”  He’s been running but he’s run out of road, a touching mid-tempo that sets the pace for the rest of the album.

Bobby co-wrote “The Grand Ole Opry” with J.P. Williams, and relates some of the historical moments in the life of the Mother Church of Country Music, told in the voice of the Opry itself.  No doubt, it will get a standing ovation from the audience when performed on the Opry stage. The Opry is such a part of Bobby’s soul, I am not surprised with this wonderful “Heartfelt” tune, straight from his heart.

Spoiler alert: if you’re an aspiring songwriter you might not want to listen to “The Songwriter.”  Ah, go ahead. Listen to it anyway.   It’s the story of a young wannabe who drives into Nashville with a sack of songs and bumps into an older songwriter in a bar who tells him: “If I knew then what I know now / I’m sure I’d have never left home / You think you wanna be a songwriter like me / But you don’t.” It’s a wry take on a hit writer’s life, written by Tomberlin with Terry Faust and Bobby Bare, with a lament about all the money going to the IRS and ex-wives.  No doubt a few songwriters in Music City know all about that.

“Looking for Audrey,” (Tomberlin, Linda Davis, Bill Whyte) imagines meeting Hank Williams Snr in a bar as the heartbroken singer tells how he regrets losing the love of his life, his wife Audrey. The gently wistful ballad is made all the more poignant by the addition of harmony vocals by Davis and Hilary Williams – Hank’s granddaughter.

Standout tracks in addition to “The Songwriter” and “Looking For Audrey:” “Wherever She Is,” a witty ‘good riddance’ ode to an ex, and “A Right Turn,” co-written with Sylvia Hutton, the final track and the perfect way to bring the album home.

CD Review by Preshias Harris for Country Music News International

Vince Gill and Lyle Lovett Reunite For “Songs and Stories” Tour

Vince Gill and Lyle Lovett Reunite For “Songs and Stories” Tour
Charismatic Performers Will Showcase Their Musical Versatility


Nashville, TN – December 5, 2016 -- The always witty Vince Gill and the reliably wry Lyle Lovett are reuniting for a nine city tour that will take place  March 2017.  After teaming up for a series of concerts in 2015 and 2016, Gill and Lovett saw that the shows were so successful that they decided to extend the tour.
A reviewer for Elmore Magazine raved, “The evening reminded me of the Rat Pack, with pals Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra doing comedy and music and having a great time. . . . This was not the show I had looked forward to—it was much better.”
Each show will be a series of  intimate solo and duo performances, during which the artists will serve as their own accompanists.
"For a night like this, there is no plan," Gill said. "I know Lyle won't have a plan, and I won't either. What he plays will inspire me, and probably vice-versa. It'll be like playing ping-pong. Whatever song he chooses to sing will inspire the next song that comes out of me."
“I enjoy shows that are not planned out,” Lovett observes. “This will be two songwriters in the round. It’s informal, so there will be lots of ad-libbing. It will be like little snapshots of our experiences.”
Both performers have reaped armfuls of Grammys and kindred laurels for their musical versatility and memory-engraving songwriting.
 "Just two guys sitting on stools, telling stories and singing songs," Gill says. "No big bands.  I saw James Taylor once with just him and his guitar, and after that show I felt like I knew him a whole lot better than I ever did before. That's what'll happen between Lyle and me, too, and I'm looking forward to it."

HERE ARE THE DATES AND LOCATIONS:
March 22 -- Thousand Oaks, CA --  Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza 
March 23 -- Mesa, AZ -- Mesa Arts Center - Ikeda Theatre
March 24 -- Las Vegas, NV --  The Smith Center for the Performing Arts - Reynolds Hall
March 25 -- Reno, NV --  Reno Ballroom
March 26 -- San Francisco, CA --  Nourse Theatre
March 27 -- San Rafael, CA --  Marin Center
March 28 -- San Jose, CA --  City National Civic
March 29 -- Visalia, CA --  Visalia Fox Theatre
March 30 -- Santa Ynez, CA --  Chumash Casino

THE INAUGURAL COUNTRYFLO MUSIC FESTIVAL CELEBRATES SUCCESSFUL LAUNCH

THE INAUGURAL COUNTRYFLO MUSIC FESTIVAL CELEBRATES SUCCESSFUL LAUNCH

Announces 2017 Festival Dates

NASHVILLE, TN (December 5, 2016) -- Thousands of Country music fans descended upon south central Florida last month for the inaugural CountryFlo Music Festival. Of the over 8,000 fans in attendance, nearly half of the country was represented with attendees from not only the deep South but as far as California and New York. Fans were treated to an unforgettable weekend in Lake Wales, Florida that included performances from country heavyweights Chris Stapleton, Thomas Rhett, Gary Allan, Marty Stuart as well as the hottest rising acts like Margo Price, Maggie Rose and more. Special moments included paratroopers dropping in with an American Flag and Jana Kramer surprising fans with an appearance from her Dancing With the Stars partner, Glen Savchenko.

The newly renovated Triple Canopy Ranch served as the stunning backdrop for this unprecedented festival experience. After a multi-million dollar renovation, the beautifully aesthetic grounds boosts nearly 500 stunning acres of custom festival grounds that include tiki huts, volleyball, white sands beaches, palm trees and a lake; making this truly a unique property.  The camping facilities provided not only traditional amenities but also ‘glamping tents’ that have never been utilized at a Country music festival until now.

"With the success of the inaugural festival, plans are already in motion for an even larger experience for 2017. CountryFlo will be expanding to 3 days next year and will be taking place Friday, November 10 through Sunday, November 12. Pre-sale tickets are expected to go on sale soon. Triple Canopy Ranch will also be hosting additional festivals throughout the year with more information expected soon."

Nashville, TN - Dec. 5, 2016 - Garth Brooks has an unrivaled hold on the Top 10 Country Album Chart, as his recently released THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION, CHRISTMAS TOGETHER and GUNSLINGER (Pearl Records, Inc.) were the top 3 best-selling albums respectively on BuzzAngle this week, while THE ULTIMATE HITS made a re-entry at No. 10, marking Brooks’ 4th album in the Top 10.  The achievement is befitting of an artist who continues to break his own milestones, Brooks previously held the Top 3 album spots with ROPIN’ THE WIND, NO FENCES and GARTH BROOKS respectively in 1992. Critics have been quick to praise Brooks' “strong new album” (New York Times) GUNSLINGER, with The Guardian highlighting that on the “impressive new album… [Brooks] made sure the 10 songs stand tall inside his classic catalog of hits.” 

Fans were able to experience GUNSLINGER ahead of its national release, as it was included on GARTH BROOKS: THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION which debuted as the No. one best-selling album sold solely through Target. Brooks is also currently undertaking a stacked holiday season of national TV appearances in support of his first collaborative album with Trisha Yearwood, CHRISTMAS TOGETHER.

Garth Brooks just won Entertainer of the Year at the CMA Awards for a fifth time, a first for any artist. He is also the first artist in history to receive 7 Diamond awards for the now seven albums certified by the RIAA at over 10 million album sales each and remains the #1-selling solo artist in U.S. history certified by the RIAA with over 138 million album sales. He has received every accolade the recording industry can bestow on an artist. Garth has been inducted into the International Songwriters Hall of Fame in New York, the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, Country Music Hall of Fame and most recently, the Musicians Hall of Fame. Garth is currently on the three year Garth Brooks World Tour with Trisha Yearwood. In two years the tour is approaching 5 MILLION tickets sold, making it the biggest tour in the world.
