STAR-STUDDED SMOKY MOUNTAINS RISE TELETHON RAISES NEARLY $9 MILLION, SO FAR

STAR-STUDDED SMOKY MOUNTAINS RISE TELETHON RAISES NEARLY $9 MILLION, SO FAR



The generosity of viewers' unexpected volume of donations slowing final tally. PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (December 14, 2016) – Millions watched Smoky Mountains Rise: A Benefit for the My People Fund telethon and millions were raised. The telethon, broadcast on GAC, AXS-TV, RFD and The Heartland Network Tuesday, received huge donations from music stars like Taylor Swift, Kenny Chesney, Chris Stapleton, Chris Young, Paul Simon and Dierks Bentley but also from families across the country who just want to give the people of Dolly’s home area a hand up in the tragic wildfires.

“I am overwhelmed by the generosity of the people who have donated from all over the country and to my friends who donated their time, their talent, and money for My People,” Dolly Parton explained. “The response has been so overwhelming that we haven’t been able to count all of the donations yet; right now, in total, we have raised about $9 million dollars for the folks who lost everything in Sevier County.”

The total amount raised is expected to rise as mail donations are counted and the telethon is rebroadcast to new audiences over the next five days.

Anyone who would like to make a tax-deductible contribution to the My People Fund may visit dollywoodfoundation.org. For those wishing to send donations via mail, those contributions should be sent to: My People Fund, c/o Dollywood Foundation, 111 Dollywood Lane, Pigeon Forge, TN 37863. Donations are also being accepted by texting DOLLY to 501501 for a onetime $10 donation or DOLLY25 to 501501 for a onetime $25 donation. Messaging and data rates will apply.

More than 1300 families have been displaced due to the wildfires which spread across Parton’s home area of Sevier County, Tennessee in late November. The entertainment icon established the Dollywood Foundation My People Fund to provide $1000 each month for six months to every family who lost their primary residence.

Artists who donated their performances to the effort include: Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, Hank Williams Jr., Chris Stapleton, Reba McEntire, Alison Krauss, Michael W. Smith, Chris Janson, Big & Rich, LOCASH, Chris Young, Montgomery Gentry, Jamey Johnson, Cyndi Lauper, Don McLean, Amy Grant, Alabama, Aaron Lewis and Rhonda Vincent.

Dolly hosted the overall telethon with friends HLN’s Robin Meade, GAC’s Suzanne Alexander and Nan Kelly, The Bobby Bones Show’s Bobby Bones, SiriusXM’s Storme Warren, Crook & Chase hosts Lorriane Crook and Charlie Chase, Nash Night LIVE’s Shaun Parr and Elaina D. Smith, and TuneIn Country Roads’ Kelly Sutton will share hosting duties throughout the three-hour broadcast.

Celebrities also donated their time to answer phones including: Paula Deen and her sons Bobby and Jamie, Chrisley Knows Best cast members Todd, Julie and Savannah, Moonshiners’ cast members Mark and Digger, Nashville’s Charles Esten, cast members of Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors, country hit-makers Chris & Morgane Stapleton, Mark Wills, Lee Greenwood, Larry & Rudy Gatlin, TG Sheppard, John Conlee, Ronnie McDowell, Kristian Bush, Tim Rushlow, T. Graham Brown, Dolly’s nieces Rebecca Seaver and Danielle Parton, bluegrass hit makers Lorraine Jordan and Darrin Vincent, comedian Henry Cho, KC of KC & The Sunshine Band, hot new country artists Lucas Hoge and Denny Strickland, songwriter Becky Hobbs, and members of the Tennessee Titans.

Several other celebrities shared special video messages during the telethon including: Katy Perry, Carrie Underwood, Larry King, Steve Harvey, Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts, Kiefer Sutherland, and Today Show’s Willie Geist.

Smoky Mountains Rise was also simulcast across multiple radio chains, including iHeart Media's digital and select on-air platforms, Cumulus Media's NASH Nights LIVE, TuneIn's Country Roads channel, RURAL Radio on SiriusXM plus cross-promotion on The Highway, Prime Country, Y2Kountry and The Garth Channel, CBS Radio, ABC Radio Networks, and several other platforms which are set to be announced shortly. All of the artists are donating their performances to help the effort. USAToday.com and USA Today National Networks live streamed the telethon on their affiliate newspaper websites, including all Tennessee newspaper sites Tennessean.com, Knoxnews.com, commercialappeal.com, jacksonsun.com, theleafchronicle.com, dnj.com, and others.

The My People Fund will provide $1000 each month to Sevier County families whose homes are uninhabitable or were completely destroyed in the recent Smoky Mountain wildfires. Any family who lost their primary residence (renters and homeowners) due to the wildfires in Sevier County will be eligible. A pre-application for those affected is available at dollywoodfoundation.org.

BIG & RICH AND CMT JOINS ARMED FORCES ENTERTAINMENT FOR FIRST-EVER "HOT 20 COUNTDOWN" SPECIALS

BIG & RICH AND CMT JOINS ARMED FORCES ENTERTAINMENT FOR FIRST-EVER "HOT 20 COUNTDOWN" SPECIALS FROM BAHRAIN MILITARY BASE



Chart Topping Duo and CMT’s Cody Alan Visit U.S. Naval Forces Central Command and U.S. 5th Fleet at Naval Support Activity Bahrain for "Hot 20 Video of the Year Countdown" Premiering December 17 and "Hot 20 Holiday Salute" on December 24
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (December 14, 2016) – Country duo Big & Rich and “CMT Hot 20 Countdown” made network history recently when the show completed its first-ever trip overseas to a military base in Bahrain to tape two special holiday episodes that will air at the end of the year. “Hot 20 Video of the Year Countdown” premieres Saturday, December 17 at 9 AM, ET/PT followed by “Hot 20 Holiday Salute” on Saturday, December 24 at 9 AM, ET/PT.

Partnering with Armed Forces Entertainment, Big & Rich, along with CMT’s Cody Alan visited the Naval Support Activity Bahrain, home to the U.S. Naval Forces Central Command (NAVCENT) and U.S. 5th Fleet. Their trip, which included rocking performances from Big & Rich, special music video shout-outs from military personnel to their friends and family back home, tours of Arabian Gulf naval ships, physical training sessions with soldiers on base, artillery demos and more will be highlighted across both “Hot 20” specials.

“This was ‘Hot 20’s’ most ambitious production to date and being able to bring the troops a little closer to their families was a no-brainer for us,” said Quinn Brown, CMT executive producer. “Our military deserves special recognition any time of the year, but for the holiday season it’s particularly important to bring some joy to those overseas. Big & Rich did just that – what a phenomenal concert they put on for the thousands at the base. It was an absolute honor to be invited to NSA Bahrain and to be amongst so many brave and talented people.”

“This was a unique experience for us. It’s the first time that Armed Forces Entertainment has sent a tour to any of our locations that included a cable network's camera crew,” said Major Jody Wynans, Chief of Armed Forces Entertainment (AFE). “The holidays typically represent a time when families get together, so to be able to provide our deployed service members with a little piece of home in the form of quality entertainment and hopefully cheer them up while they’re missing their loved ones, is what AFE is all about.”

"It is sure an inspiring experience to get an up-close look at our US Naval base in Bahrain, which is host and home to a very large multi-national coalition force working to support operations and providing stability and peace in the region,” said Big & Rich’s Big Kenny. “The focus, discipline, knowledge and integrity that we witnessed of the security forces and command there is superb. I can say with great pride and assurance that our nation is represented well on the front lines of freedom by the men and women of the US military. It was an absolute honor and a blast to play some country music for all the folks there and say thank you on behalf of all of us back home in the USA. We are blessed beyond belief."

Premieres for “Hot 20’” specials from Bahrain include:

Hot 20 Video of the Year Countdown – Premieres Saturday, December 17 at 9 AM, ET/PT; Encores Saturday, December 31 at 9 AM, ET/PT

“Hot 20” thanks our men and women serving overseas in the first installment from their trip to NSA Bahrain. For the first time on national television country superstars Big & Rich debut a new song, “For the Party,” in front of a small group of Sailors at guard mount, where they prepare for a 12-hour shift protecting the base. Later, the guys deliver a full concert to thousands of service members on base including a performance of their hit “Comin’ To Your City,” and one lucky individual has the opportunity to join the guys on stage. Cody Alan tests his physical strength and endurance when he joins four branches of the armed forces for their early morning training, including pushing a firetruck, flipping tires and more. Alan also sits down with an NSA Bahrain Commanding Officer to discuss the importance of the base in that region, as well as what has surprised him about living in Bahrain.

Hot 20 Holiday Salute – Premieres Saturday, December 24 at 9 AM, ET/PT

Military personnel from the Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard command this special episode as they request music videos and send personalized video messages dedicated to their family and friends back in the United States. From Toby Keith’s “American Soldier,” to Reba’s “Fancy” and Florida Georgia Line’s “H.O.L.Y.,” the video requests span a catalogue of country’s biggest hits.

In addition to “Hot 20” Cody Alan also highlights the trip to Bahrain on “CMT After MidNite,” with all-new interviews from Big & Rich and more airing the night before each “Hot 20” premiere (12/16 and 12/23).

Bluegrass Fans Donate to Dolly's Wildfire Relief Fund

Bluegrass Fans Donate to Dolly's Wildfire Relief Fund

Following the tragic Gatlinburg, TN wildfires, promotor Lorraine Jordan and fans attending the Bluegrass Christmas in the Smokies festival in neighboring Pigeon Forge, TN raised $10,000 for Dolly Parton's My People Fund. Parton's Dollywood Foundation is collecting funds to distribute to wildfire victims. Jordan attended the Smoky Mountains Rise telethon to assist with answering phones and to present the donations from the festival to Parton during the telecast.

Jordan said, "My festival fans had worked hard, and most bands had donated product to help out. We held a silent auction with autographed guitars, quilts, rental properties, and gift baskets we put together. We donated all our tee shirt sales and proceeds from walk-in general admission tickets. We held 50/50 drawings and passed a bucket to collect money."

The total amount raised at the telethon has yet to be announced but is reported to be in the millions. The total damages from the wildfires has been estimated to be over $500 million dollars. Visit DollywoodFoundation.org to donate to the My People Fund which will directly help families affected by the wildfires.

Bluegrass Christmas in the Smokies is an annual festival held each December in Pigeon Forge, TN. The four-day festival is promoted and organized by Jordan, who is also the frontwoman of the Lorraine Jordan and Carolina Road bluegrass band. The band has recorded a song called "Christmas in the Smokies" inspired by the mountainous East Tennessee area.

Bon Jovi veröffentlichen ihr Live-Album "This House Is Not For Sale - Live From The London Palladium"
Bon Jovi sind immer wieder für eine Überraschung gut: Nachdem die Band gerade erst ihr gefeiertes Album „This House Is Not For Sale“ veröffentlicht hat, steht jetzt bereits der nächste musikalische Paukenschlag an. Für den 16. Dezember 2016 haben Bon Jovi ein neues Live-Album angekündigt.

Die Aufnahmen stammen vom Konzert in London aus dem Oktober 2016, bei dem Bon JoviThis House Is Not For Sale“ in voller Länge performten. Da die Band von dem Konzert selbst so begeistert war, entschieden sie sich kurzerhand den großartigen Live-Mitschnitt als eigenständiges Album zu veröffentlichen. Seit dem 25. November ist „Live From The London Palladium“ bereits vorbestellbar.

Mit „This House Is Not For Sale“ brachten Bon Jovi im Oktober ihr 14. Studioalbum auf den Markt und zeigen darauf ihren ganzen Facetten-Reichtum, sowohl musikalisch, als auch inhaltlich: Mitreißende Melodien, gitarrenlastige Parts, Jon Bon Jovis rauchige Stimme und Songs, die wahre Hymnen sind. Auch nach all den Jahren spielt die Band aus New Jersey in der Rock-Liga immer noch ganz oben mit.

Kid Cudi veröffentlicht sein neues Album "Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin'"
I ain’t ridin’ no waves / Too busy makin’ my own waves, baby“ – mit diesen deutlichen Worten brachte Kid Cudi das Motto für sein neues Album schon ziemlich gut in der Vorab-Single „Surfin“ feat. Pharrell auf den Punkt. Die von diversen US-Medien postwendend als „up-tempo feel-good banger“ gefeierte Single, die er im Herbst im Doppelpack mit dem Stück „Frequency“ veröffentlicht hat, ist genau genommen nur einer von zwei Tracks des Albums, auf denen Pharrell als Gast zu hören ist. Seit Jahren schon als Erneuerer der HipHop-Welt gehandelt, wurde Kid Cudi erst vor wenigen Wochen von Kanye West als „der einflussreichste Künstler der letzten 10 Jahre“ gefeiert. Jetzt ist der 32-Jährige aus Cleveland zurück mit seinem neuen Album „Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’“, das am 16. Dezember 2016 erscheint.

Zu den weiteren Gästen des insgesamt 19 Tracks umfassenden Longplayers, der episch angelegt und in vier Akte unterteilt ist, zählen Travi$ Scott, Willow Smith sowie Outkasts André 3000, der ebenfalls auf gleich zwei Stücken am Mic aushilft. Die Produktionen stammen u.a. von Mike Dean, Dot da Genius, Plain Pat und Mike WiLL Made-It. Mit dem gedrosselten Banger „Baptized In Fire“ feat. Travi$ Scott hat Cudi zudem schon jetzt einen weiteren Vorabtrack veröffentlicht.

Wenn Ryan Gosling und Emma Stone zusammen auf der Leinwand zu sehen sind, dann sprühen die Funken. Die besondere Chemie zwischen den beiden hat ihnen bereits nach den letzten gemeinsamen Filmprojekten den Ruf eines Hollywood-Dreamteams eingebracht. Im heißen Oscar-Anwärter „La La Land“ zeigt sich, dass die beiden auch gesanglich ein absolutes Traumpaar abgeben. Bei den Golden Globes geht "La La Land" mit sieben Nominerungen ins Rennen und führt damit die Liste mit den meisten Nominierungen an.

„La La Land“ – die traumhaft inszenierte Liebesgeschichte, ist ganz großes, musikalisches Gefühlskino! Mit dem Song „City Of Stars“, gesungen von Ryan Gosling und Emma Stone könnte "La La Land" bei den Golden Globes auch in der Kategorie "Bester Song" gewinnen. Warum man dem Film und der Musik einfach nicht widerstehen kann, gibt es hier zu sehen.

Die leidenschaftliche Schauspielerin Mia (Emma Stone) und der charismatische Jazzmusiker Sebastian (Ryan Gosling) suchen das große Glück in Los Angeles. Sie halten sich mit Nebenjobs über Wasser und nachdem sich ihre Wege zufällig kreuzen, verlieben sie sich Hals über Kopf ineinander. Gemeinsam schmieden sie Pläne für ihre Zukunft auf der Bühne und genießen den Zauber der jungen Liebe in „La La Land“ – der Stadt der Träume. Doch kann ihre Beziehung diesem Druck standhalten? Am 12. Januar kommt „La La Land“ in die Kinos. Der Soundtrack ist digital bereits erhältlich und erscheint als CD am 13. Januar 2017.

Mit dabei sind u.a. DJ Premier, Pete Rock und Dame Grease sowie Studio-Gäste Fetty Wap und Gucci Mane. Als ersten Vorgeschmack ließen The Lox gleich zwei Tracks aus dem Käfig: "Don't You Cry" und "What Else You Need to Know" - letzterer spielt auch auf The Lox' Performance bei Puff Daddy's Klassiker "It's All About the Benjamins" an. Bei "What Else You Need to Know" erinnert sich die Gruppe an ihre lange Geschichte und reimt: "Puff played me 'The Benjamins'/I thought it was wack/Wrote a verse next day/I brought New York back."

Nach ihrem 2000er Album "We Are The Streets" und einer EP im Jahre 2013 gibt es ab Freitag endlich ein neues Album des Trios. Die Gerüchte um das neue Werk sorgen schon seit Monaten für Aufsehen in der Fangemeinde. Erst kürzlich gab Styles P persönlich bei Instagram weiteren Gesprächsstoff, als er ein Bild von The Lox im Studio mit Timbaland, DJ Premier und Just Blaze postete.

The Lumineers präsentieren Elvis-Presley-Klassiker "Blue Christmas"
Im April erschien das aktuelle Album „Cleopatra“ von The Lumineers. Der Plan lautete, die emotionale Achterbahnfahrt der vergangenen drei Jahre und sämtliche Erfahrungen in den neuen Songs einzufangen. In den filigranen, vermeintlich schlicht wirkenden Akustik-Arrangements dieses zweiten Longplayers, schimmert immer wieder durch, wie begnadet The Lumineers darin sind, eindringliche, bildhafte Geschichten mit der richtigen Melodie zu versehen.

Nach ihrer Tour im November, hält das Trio nun eine ganz besondere Überraschung für ihre Fans bereit: The Lumineers haben einen Elvis-Presley-Klassiker als Weihnachtssingle veröffentlicht. Die Band aus Colorado, die eigentlich für Hits wie „Ho Hey“ und „Stubborn Love“ bekannt ist, hat nun einen absoluten Weihnachtsklassiker neu interpretiert. Mit Elvis Presleys „Blue Christmas“ liefern The Lumineers die perfekte Untermalung für das diesjährige Fest der Liebe und die kalte Jahreszeit.

HER im neuen Jahr gemeinsam auf Tour mit AnnenMayKantereit
In diesem Jahr ist deutsch-französische Duo Her, bestehend aus Victor Solf und Simon Carpentier, nicht nur in den USA aufgetreten, sondern spielte nach ausverkauften Headliner-Shows in London auch beim diesjährigen Great Escape Festival und absolvierte danach gleich noch ein paar große UK-Dates dran. Ihre Live-Qualitäten präsentieren die beiden von Her in der Regel mit der Unterstützung von drei Gastmusikern.

Im neuen Jahr geben Her zahlreiche Konzerte in Deutschland. Die beiden Musiker zählen zu den Künstlern, die sich nicht in ein Genre pressen lassen. Ihr Sound ist sexy, raffiniert und minimalistisch.

Freut euch auf ein musikalisches Gebilde aus elektronischen Beats, Rap-Parts und Songwriting-Skills, mit denen das Gespann bereits Kollegen wie Pharrell Williams, Zane Lowe und AnnenMayKantereit begeistert. Bei den Letztgenannten sind Her im kommenden Jahr an folgenden Terminen Support-Act:
