CD Review: American Young - American Young

American Young
American Young is grabbing the listeners attention with their songs
Wasn’t Gonna Drink Tonight, Aint Looking for Love, God Sends a Train, Love Is War, Soldier’s Wife (Don’t Want You To Go)

American Young marks the creative artist statement for the duo Kristy Osmunson and Jon Stone.  It’s not just an expression of creativity.  It goes deeper than that.  It’s their commitment and integrity and it stems from the authority with which they write and express themselves.  Both are seasoned musicians, song-writers and entertainers.  Their musical chemistry was evident the moment they formed American Young.  Before signing to Curb Records and working together, Osmunson was with a band named Bomshel while Stone took center stage as solo act, song writer and producer . Together they created songs about the beauty of falling in love and dealing with the difficult phases of a relationship. The duo take the fiddle, guitar combination to a whole new level as they expand the boundaries of country music.

Cutting communication after a breakup is necessary to heal and move on, but there are things so difficult to control.  “Wasn’t Gonna Drink Tonight” delves into seeing an ex and actually bringing back old feelings.  It is a sad song in which Osmunson plays eloquently a very nice violin part. “Wasn’t Gonna Drink Tonight” is Jon Stone’s collaboration with Lee Brice and Billy Montana.  The melody of the violin and guitar in “Ain’t Looking For Love”  reverberated richly in my ears burying a great sound.  The freshness of the tune is combined with verve and a touch of impatience lyric wise which gives a lively and sparkling sound.  The duo’s voice blending, interwoven with excellent violin’ and guitar’s soulful tune is enchanting.  “God Sends a Train” strikes an emotional chord.  Kristy Osmunson blew me away with her deeply personal track as she looked inward and wrote a song about her relationship with her mother.  She sings with vulnerability and defiance, complemented by drum loops.  She captures just the right tone in this dark song, but found healing as she sings and shares about her difficult childhood memory.  The sentiment was genuine.  As the song goes, “Cause sometimes God sends a whisper carried in on the rain and when we don’t wanna listen, sometimes God sends a train.  The message is loud and clear, we need to re-evaluate life and position our hearts to hear God’s still and small voice.  The down-tempo “Love Is War” is all about the complications of love, something that isn’t easy to handle.  “Soldier’s Wife (Don’t Want You To Go)” starts off with a lovely digital piano and drum beat.  It details the feelings of the soldier’s wife when he goes off to war.  The raw emotion of the lyric makes it an expression of sacrifice and struggle seeping through you.  The drums speak of complex ways and war fields while the piano brings out fear of being left alone.  The duo American Young showcases the capabilities of their voices.  Lyrics surrounds their soaring harmonies with enticing fiddle, shimmering guitar and lush drum sound bringing nice melody blends.  They continued to write catchy and passionate style country music to further their impressive songwriting and expand their repertoire.

DOLLY PARTON'S MY PEOPLE FUND SERVES NEARLY 900 FAMILIES IN FIRST DISTRIBUTION

DOLLY PARTON'S MY PEOPLE FUND SERVES NEARLY 900 FAMILIES IN FIRST DISTRIBUTION

Donations to the fund continue as totals climb to $9.3 million PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (December 22, 2016) – In a little more than two weeks after the wildfires that spread across Dolly Parton’s home area of Sevier County, Tennessee, Parton and the Dollywood Foundation launched the distribution of assistance from the My People Fund. During the four day cash distribution, 884 families received their initial support payments.

“It’s a blessing during this holiday season that we are able to help as many families as we have so far,” Parton said. “We know there are more families out there who need our help and we encourage them to be in contact with us before our January distribution.”

The Dollywood Foundation My People Fund provides $1,000 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.

Millions of people watched Smoky Mountains Rise: A Benefit for the My People Fund telethon on Tuesday, December 13 on Great American Country, AXS-TV, RFD-TV and The Heartland Network and during several rebroadcasts throughout the last week. As a result, donations continued to roll in and thanks to generous people from coast to coast and Parton’s friends, the total amount raised has climbed to $9.3 million.

“As, Dolly said, the response has been overwhelming,” David Dotson, Dollywood Foundation President said. “We will distribute all $9.3 million to the families affected. That will insure all of the money raised will go to where Dolly promised it would go.”

The next distribution is January 26 and 27, 2017 at the LeConte Events Center in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

About the Dollywood Foundation My People Fund:
More than 1,300 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 $1,000 each month for six months to every family who lost their primary residence.

About Smoky Mountains Rise:
Smoky Mountains Rise was a three-hour telethon broadcast on Tuesday, Dec. 13 to raise money for the Dollywood Foundation’s My People Fund to benefit those affected by the Sevier County, Tennessee wildfires. Smoky Mountains Rise was executive produced by Dolly Parton, Danny Nozell, Kirt Webster, Pete Owens and Scott Durand. Produced by Edie Hoback, Jeremy Westby, Shanna Strassberg, Suzzane Skinner, Nic Dugger and Shantel Klinger.

Dustin Lynch took Cassadee Pope last night!

DUSTIN LYNCH Wins Big on Spike TV’s LIP SYNC BATTLE 

Took on Cassadee Pope in Last Night’s Hilarious Holiday Episode

New Single “Seein’ Red” Enters Country Radio’s Top 10




Nashville, Tenn. (December 22, 2016) – Broken Bow Records artist DUSTIN LYNCH proved unbeatable in last night’s (12/21) laugh-out-loud episode of Spike TV’s LIP SYNC BATTLE, taking on fellow country star Cassadee Pope. 

Hosted by LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen, LIP SYNC BATTLE pits celebrities in a head-to-head fight to see who can deliver the most outrageous and entertaining lip-synched performance, and Lynch wowed the crowd with Ludacris’ lusty rap hit “What’s Your Fantasy” and Lou Bega’s dancehall smash “Mambo No. 5,” earning himself the LSB championship belt. 

Trading in his cowboy hat for a flat-brimmed cap, Lynch turned on the goofy sex appeal for “What’s Your Fantasy,” a hip-thrusting good time that ended with a whipped cream finish and had Pope doubled over in laughter. “Mambo No. 5,” on the other hand, was full of zoot-suited, Latin-flavored fun … with  “a little bit” of fake mustache thrown in for good measure.

In case you missed it, Dustin Lynch syncs "What's Your Fantasy" by Ludacris here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flxMDlFXGj8

Meanwhile, Lynch’s current single – the steamy “Seein’ Red” – has just entered Country radio’s Top 10. Co-written by Kurt Allison, Steve Bogard, Tully Kennedy and Jason Sever, it’s the first taste of Lynch’s upcoming third album, with Rolling Stone praising Lynch's vocals as "one of his most soulful and assured to date” and Taste of Country proclaiming the song "unapologetically sexy." It follows the three-peat GOLD and PLATINUM success of singles “Where It’s At,” “Hell of a Night” and “Mind Reader” from his sophomore album, WHERE IT’S AT.

Lynch will kick off 2017 with a bang, joining Florida Georgia Line’s DIG YOUR ROOTS TOUR as the featured supporting artist. The nationwide trek begins January 27 in Tallahassee, Florida, and also includes Chris Lane.

For more information, visit DustinLynchMusic.com.

ABOUT DUSTIN LYNCH:
Since releasing his PLATINUM debut single, “Cowboys and Angels,” Lynch has catapulted onto the country music scene, with three consecutive #1s, two Top 5 albums, Platinum-level certifications and back-to-back summers on one of the biggest tours in country music (opening for Luke Bryan). Racking up over 55 million views on YouTube/VEVO, scoring 150 million plus streams on Spotify, soaring to #1 on the MTV Music Meter and selling 3 million digital singles, he brings a fresh combination of traditional influences and edgy intensity to the genre. Producers Mickey Jack Cones, Brett Beavers and Luke Wooten showcase his progressive sound throughout his sophomore album, WHERE IT’S AT (Broken Bow Records), which debuted at #1 on the iTunes Country Albums Chart upon release and has tallied over 1 million tracks sold to date. Realizing his long time dream of creating a fashion line, Lynch recently launched Stay Country. “Stay Country isn’t just a brand, it’s a lifestyle,” says Lynch. “It’s where I grew up. It’s home to the rivers I’ve fished, the deer stands I’ve perched, and the dirt roads I’ve roamed. It inspired Stay Country.” The line of accessibly-priced men’s and women’s shirts, hats, and accessories, all emblazoned with the distinctive Stay Country logo, can be found online at https://www.staycountryclothing.com.

PLUSMACHER: mit neuem Album im April auf Tour

Image Label

Plusmacher´s Debut-Album „die Ernte“ erschien über Xatar`s Label Kopfticker Records und ging direkt auf Platz 12 der deutschen Album-Charts. Während die vernebelten Kush-Hymnen des letzten Albums noch für Rauchschwaden in Fankreisen sorgen, macht der Plusmacher sich gerade und kommt direkt mit seinem nächsten Opus um die Ecke.
„KUSH HUNTER“: Plusmacher in seiner Blütephase. Frisch aus der Boof mit Reißverschluss - Deutschlands bekanntester grüner Daumen erscheint im grellen Licht der Natrium Dampflampen und verteilt knallige Knospen fürs Volk.
Auf 16 Anspielstationen reichen dem Macher nur 3 wohl gewählte Gäste. Mit dabei sind sein Gärtner-Partner in Crhyme, der Jogginghosen tragende Ostblock-Eminem und als besondere Überraschung einen Bruder im grünen Geiste direkt aus dem Herzen Berlins - Mehr wird nicht verraten, das muss reichen. Auf den scheppernden Produktionen von The Breed und Mecstreem spuckt der Macher auf Fiskus, Jobcenter und deinem verschissenen geleasten Nissan. Plusmacher bleibt straight und on point wie seine Zeitschaltuhr, die auch tickt wenn der Beat aus ist. Und die Mädels stehen drauf.
Die Tickets sind ab sofort unter  www.neuland-concerts.com und an allen bekannten VVK-Stellen erhältlich.
