Country Music News International Song of the Week - Drinking With Dolly Stephanie Quayle

Country Music News International Song of the Week

Drinking With Dolly
Stephanie Quayle

Hello!  I’m Camo, one of the hosts of Nashville Access. This week’s pick comes from Stephanie Quayle.  Stephanie is a Montana native, who has been in Nashville for a little over six years, and is now starting to make a real impact with her latest single, “Drinking With Dolly." 

Stephanie says that last year was “monumental.”  “Drinking With Dolly,” she feels has become her “tipping point” and could very well be one of those “signature songs.”  Written by Victoria Banks and Rachel Proctor wrote the song, and it’s a real tribute to the women of country music.  Stephanie says that her career now is “really beyond” what she dreamed of as a child.  She never knew that she’d be connecting with her fans like she does (her fans are known as “The Flock of Quayle), and that her songs are like little three-and-a-half minute movies.
“Drinking With Dolly” grabbed our attention and we hope it grabs yours too!  It’s a solid country song, name-checking Dolly Parton, Tammy Wynette, the Opry and other country music icons.
2017 looks to be another big year for Stephanie, with new music to come, touring, CMA Music Festival, ACM’s and more.  Make sure you check out “Drinking With Dolly” by Stephanie Quayle.  Enjoy!
 Have a great week—and thanks for reading!

Big & Rich To Open Westwood One's Super Bowl LI Game

Big & Rich To Open Westwood One's Super Bowl LI Game Day Coverage with Customized Version of Their Song, "Party Like Cowboyz"

Westwood One Presents Super Bowl LI Game Day Coverage with an All-Star Broadcast Team, Including Kevin Harlan, Boomer Esiason, James Lofton, Mike Holmgren, Tony Boselli, Jim Gray and Scott Graham, with Contributions from Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald, and Kurt Warner
  NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 26, 2017)Westwood One Sports, the official network radio partner for the National Football League, will present comprehensive coverage of Super Bowl LI, live from NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, on Sunday, February 5, 2017. The network will feature a full schedule of game day programming leading up to kickoff, when the NFC-Champion Atlanta Falcons take on AFC-Champion New England Patriots for the title. This is the 30th consecutive year and the 44th time overall Westwood One has broadcast the Super Bowl, America’s biggest sporting event.

Country’s multi-platinum, superstar act Big & Rich, comprised of Big Kenny and NBC’s “The Celebrity Apprentice” winner John Rich, will kick off Super Sunday on Westwood One with an exclusive remixed version of their hit song “Party Like Cowboyz.” The customized opening theme will be mixed with highlights and sound bites from the two participating teams in their quest for the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

Big & Rich have garnered multiple Grammy, ACM, CMA and CMT Music Award nominations. Three singles from their latest album Gravity – “Look at You,” “Run Away with You,” and “Lovin’ Lately” – scored top 10 on the Country charts. The superstars’ first studio album, Horse of a Different Color, includes their hit infectious single, “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy).”

“Nearly half of NFL fans are Country music fans and we’re thrilled to have Big & Rich as part of our Super Bowl broadcast,” said Suzanne Grimes, Westwood One’s President and EVP, Corporate Marketing for Cumulus Media. “Our incomparable game day content offers Country music fans a real treat but also provides a superior, multi-platform experience for our NFL listeners and exceptional opportunities for our advertisers. I can’t wait to get the party started!”

Beginning at 4:00 pm ET, Kevin Harlan and Boomer Esiason bring listeners live coverage from NRG Stadium.

This is Harlan’s seventh Super Bowl with the network. It also marks Esiason’s 17th as the radio analyst, surpassing Hall of Fame Coach Hank Stram for the most in NFL history.

Hall of Fame wide receiver James Lofton will patrol the Patriots sidelines and former NFL offensive tackle Tony Boselli, a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2017, makes his Super Bowl broadcast debut from the Falcons sidelines. Jim Gray hosts the pregame and halftime shows, with contributions from Patriots quarterback and four-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady, and Cardinals Pro Bowl wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald.

Scott Graham kicks off Westwood One’s extended pregame coverage with Super Bowl Preview at 2:00 pm ET. Additionally, Super Bowl XXXI winning Coach Mike Holmgren and Super Bowl XXXIV MVP Kurt Warner will contribute to Westwood One’s coverage throughout the day. Warner is also a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2017, to be announced the night before the Super Bowl.

In addition to the Super Bowl LI game broadcast, Westwood One presents a full slate of pregame programming, starting at 2:00 pm ET on Game Day—

  • 2:00 pm ET: “Super Bowl Preview”-- hosted by Scott Graham, Boomer Esiason, and Mike Holmgren
  • 3:00 pm ET: “Super Bowl Insider”-- hosted by Jason Horowitz, James Lofton, and Tony Boselli
  • 4:00 pm ET: “Super Sunday” -- the Super Bowl LI pregame show, live from NRG Stadium
  • 5:00 pm ET: Super Bowl LI game broadcast

Westwood One will also produce “Seven Days to Sunday—The Road to Super Bowl LI.” This hour-long preview show will air each night during the week leading up to Super Sunday, beginning on Monday night, January 30th, and continuing through Saturday night, February 4th, 2017. Hosted by Scott Graham, the voice of NFL Films, the nightly program will feature interviews with players from both participating teams as well as coaches and other special guests. Each night’s show will be co-hosted by a different Westwood One NFL analyst and will also feature a flashback to a previous Super Bowl.

Millions of listeners around the globe will tune in to Westwood One’s Super Bowl LI coverage across more than 650 radio stations nationwide and 150+ FM translators. Fans can also hear the broadcast on SiriusXM, via the TuneIn Radio app, and through NFL Game Pass, which is available on and the NFL Mobile from Verizon app.

The broadcast can also be heard worldwide via the American Forces Radio Network, which provides programming to America’s military forces. The network serves over one million men and women in uniform, Department of Defense personnel, American Embassies and Consulates in over 175 countries and territories, as well as on more than 200 U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard and Military Sealift Command ships at sea.

Howard Deneroff is the Executive Producer of Westwood One Sports. Larry Costigan and Mike Eaby are the Coordinating Producers.

Randy Rogers And The Classic Country Cover Song Challenge

Bruce Robison’s The Next Waltz Brings The Classic Country Cover Song Challenge To Fans With The Release Of
Randy Rogers’ Rendition Of Merle Haggard’s
1980 Hit "Misery And Gin"

Nashville, TN --- January 26, 2017 --- The Classic Country Cover Song Challenge is a dare you want to take: An opportunity to explore a fresh approach to country gold on award-winning, singer/songwriter Bruce Robinson’s site, The Next Waltz

First up, Randy Rogers shares a poignant rendition of the classic mid-career Merle Haggard classic song “Misery and Gin” available this Friday, January 27 as the first installment in this must-listen series. Haggard was a seminal influence for both Rogers and Robison.   

“I got a call from Bruce inviting me to challenge my fans to request a solid gold country cover,” said Rogers. “I was thankful when I saw a Hag tune get requested and thrilled it was ‘Misery and Gin.’ Likely one of Hag's tunes I've listened to most through the years."

Birthed from Robison’s love of classic country, The Country Cover Song Challenge began when Robinson challenged a few friends to join him in the studio to cut one of their favorites. As a fellow fan of the classics, Rogers was quick to sign on.

“Randy immediately got what I wanted to do with The Next Waltz,” explained Robinson. “He knows how the history of this music ties us together. How the beauty of the songs is the story of our time. ‘Misery and Gin’ is one of those. Hag didn’t write it, but it is part of the soundtrack of our lives and that is what music enthusiasts – the people who create and the people who follow the music – will discover at The Next Waltz.” 

Rogers recorded the track in Austin at The Lockhart Texas Clubhouse, which Robison dubbed “a time machine to the ‘70s, where the country music sounds big, fat and sweet.”  Joining Rogers on the recording are Conrad Choucroun on drums (NRBQ, Patty Griffin),  Bukka Allen on keys (son of Texas legends Terry and Jo Harvey Allen), Geoff Queen on steel and guitar (who has played with Robinson, Rogers, Wade Bowen and Hayes Carll), Kelly Mckee and Robison on harmonies, along with Brian Beken from Robert Earl Keen's band on fiddle and bass guitar

Robison adds “the best of Texas and country music are making the trek to Lockhart to eat barbecue, tell stories, reminisce, and make music: Turnpike Troubadours, Jerry Jeff Walker, Rodney Crowell, Sam Outlaw, Kelly Willis have all come out.”  

While artists typically record behind closed doors, The Next Waltz has pulled back the curtain allowing the fans to experience the recording process from conception as well as offering interview segments with the artists behind the music.     

The Next Waltz is a Social House. An incomparable hybrid of an artist community unfolding before your eyes online. It’s a hotbed of artist activity - original songs, cover songs, videos, studio sessions, live performances, conversations with artists and more. This unique site is a place to find integrity, quality – there chords and the truth. Where fans can engage in the creative process like never before. The Next Waltz harkens back to the days of Guy Clark and his wife Susanna providing a living, breathing space in which artists could thrive. With an understanding that community is everything, Robison has created a new space for artists to create and share directly with fans.

One visit to The Next Waltz will provide you with Jerry Jeff Walker discussing writing “Mr Bojangles,” an exclusive recording of Randy Rogers singing Merle Haggard’s "Misery and Gin," Turnpike Troubadours performing "Come As You Are,” or a conversation with Rodney Crowell talking to Bruce and Kelly about how he came to own one of John Lennon's suits.  

Randy Rogers is “carving out a legacy that may one day be on par with that of another Texan: George Strait” (Rolling Stone Country). Widely known as the frontman of hard-touring outfit the Randy Rogers Band, he’s on the road more than 200 days a year and making contributions to the live music sector with his recent purchase of the famed Cheatham Street Warehouse. Rogers is set for yet another record-breaking year of touring, new music and festival appearances, including Stagecoach 2017, and the Randy Rogers Band’s current single “Tequila Eyes” is climbing the radio charts both regionally and nationally.

Mit ihrem packenden Oldschool-meets-Newschool-Mix setzen die Alternative-Rocker aus Ulm spürbare Akzente und widersetzen sich allen bisher dagewesenen Normen und Formen. Ihr am 03.03. erscheinendes Debütalbum “Anomalie” verpackt diesen eigensinnigen Sound in 12 aufs Wesentliche reduzierte Kompositionen.
Kryptisch, aber unheimlich stark: Ihre neueste Single “Schüsse” richtet sich gegen die bestehende, allmächtig erscheinende Weltordnung und verhandelt auf eindrucksvolle Art und Weise die gefühlte Ohnmacht, nichts dagegen ausrichten zu können – hier im Video zu sehen.
Anfang März geht es für Van Holzen dann auch auf Release-Tour: 01.03. Berlin, Musik & Frieden // 02.03. Hamburg, Hafenklang // 03.03. Köln, Blue Shell // 04.03. Ulm, Club Schilli.

Wasser ist Lebenskraft. Wasser bahnt sich stets seinen eigenen Weg und lässt sich nicht aufhalten. Die Wahl-Hamburgerin Y’akoto ist zurück und läutet die Sirenen zu ihrem dritten Album. Besser gesagt, ist sie diesmal die Sirene, die mit unbändiger und aufweckender Kraft am 31.03. ihren “Mermaid Blues” präsentiert.
Ihre erste Single-Auskopplung “Fool Me Once” ist die Ballade einer selbstmörderischen Liebe, deren Melancholie zudem perfekt die wohl emotionalste Szene des aktuellen Kinofilms “Willkommen bei den Hartmanns” untermalt – hier im offiziellen Musikvideo.
Ihr “Mermaid Blues” ist mehr als Musik. Er ist eine Lebenseinstellung, die sich in ihrem neuesten Werk ausführlich mit der Mythologie und Geschichte der sagenumwobenen Meerjungfrau in Afrika beschäftigt – auch ‘Mami Wata’ genannt – alias die “Weisheit des Ozeans”.

Gute drei Jahre nach seinem Platin-Erfolg “Moon Landing” (in Deutschland 3-fach Gold) kehrt James Blunt mit einem brandneuen Album auf die Bühne des Pop zurück. “The Afterlove” erscheint am 24.03., gefolgt von einer ausgedehnten Tour, die den Weltstar im Oktober/November u.a. nach Deutschland, Österreich und in die Schweiz führen wird!
Auch auf seinem fünften Album blieb der Brite seinem bisherigen Erfolgsrezept treu und arbeitete mit hochkarätigen Songwritern und Musikern zusammen wie Ed Sheeran, Ryan Tedder, Amy Wadge, Johnny McDaid, Stephan Moccio oder MoZella. Diesen Freitag schon erscheint daraus die erste Single “Love Me Better”.
Mit zwei BritAwards, zwei ECHOS, einem Ivor Novello Songwriting-Award, zahlreichen hochdotierten Preisen und Video-Awards zählt James Blunt zu den erfolgreichsten Singer/Songwritern auf dem Globus.

Morgen erscheint das Debütalbum der heiß umworbenen, Grammy-nominierten Urban Pop-Sängerin Kehlani, die perfekt den eingängigen Titel ihres Longplayers verkörpert und darauf gleichzeitig sich selbst, ihre Gefühle und Wahrheiten auf ungezwungene Weise teilt. Dahinter steckt ein Prozess der Selbstverwirklichung.
Aufrichtigkeit ist spätestens seit ihrem 2014er Mixtape “Cloud 19” (#1 der iTunes ‘Top R&B Albums’-Charts) zu ihrem Markenzeichen geworden. “SWEETSEXYSAVAGE” ist nachhaltig von ihren Tour-Erlebnissen beeinflusst und zeigt nun, ohne jeden Zweifel, wie sehr Kehlani seither gereift ist.
Im März kommt Kehlani auch nach Deutschland auf Tour: 14.03. Berlin, Astra Kulturhaus // 18.03. München, Technikum // 24.03. Frankfurt, Gibson // 26.03. Köln, Essigfabrik // 27.03. Hamburg, Uebel & Gefährlich.

Für die britische Pop-Sängerin geht die Party weiter: Am morgigen Freitag veröffentlicht sie den Alan Walker-Remix zu ihrem Smash-Hit “After The Afterparty (feat. Lil Yachty)”. Alan Walker behauptete sich mit “Faded” an der Spitze der deutschen Jahrescharts 2016 und steht aktuell mit seiner neuen Single “Alone” hierzulande auf Platz #4.
Im Frühjahr erscheint das noch unbetitelte neue Album von Charli XCX, das sie kürzlich in einem Interview mit dem amerikanischen Rolling Stone als “eine Champagnerdusche mit Badass-Pop” ankündigte.
“Party machen ist eines meiner liebsten Hobbys und ich realisierte, dass ich noch nie ein wirkliches Partyalbum gemacht hatte (…), das ich im Club hören wollen würde (…), der Soundtrack zu meinen Nächten”, so Charli XCX über die bevorstehende Album-Veröffentlichung.

Alle erwarten ihr im Frühjahr erscheinendes Debütalbum “All Your Fault”, denn das in L.A. beheimatete Multitalent ist derzeit schwer gefragt. Anfang des Jahres veröffentlichte die 27-Jährige ihre aktuelle Single “I Got You”, die sich gerade auf Platz #37 der dortigen iTunes-Charts und hierzulande bei Spotify/iTunes in den Top 50 behauptet – hier das offizielle Musikvideo.
Nachdem Bebe Rexha die Single in einer rockigen Live-Version im US-Fernsehen bei “Good Morning America” sowie in der “Late Night Show” von Jimmy Fallon einem Millionen-Publikum präsentierte, veröffentlicht sie diesen Freitag eine Akustik-Version des Originals.
Ihr Erstlingswerk steht im Geiste musikalischer Vorreiter der Jahrtausendwende wie Destiny’s Child, Aaliyah oder Timbaland. “Ich möchte, dass die Leute mich so kennenlernen, wie ich bin”, fügt sie hinzu.

Bei den am 22.02. in London stattfindenden Brit Awards ist Anne-Marie die am meisten nominierte Künstlerin und das bevor sie überhaupt ihr Debütalbum veröffentlicht hat. Wenig überraschend, stand sie 2016 schon als “einer der hellsten Sterne am britischen Pop-Himmel” (The Independent) an der Spitze sämtlicher ‘Must-Watch’-Listen.
Der UK-Shooting-Star ist in vier Kategorien für einen Brit Award nominiert: Einmal in der Kategorie “British Breakthrough”, einmal als “Critics’ Choice” und zweimal für die Kollabo-Single “Rockabye” an der Seite von Clean Bandit und Sean Paul, als “Best British Single” und “Best British Video” – hier zu sehen.
Ende letzten Jahres performte Anne-Marie ihre Hit-Single “Alarm” im Rahmen einer atemberaubenden Akustik-Session für das digitale Musikmagazin “Colors”, die es hier zu sehen gibt.

Image Label


Am 17.02. kehrt eine der innovativsten Indiepop-Bands zurück und präsentiert ihr neues Album. “Plural”, heißt das neue Werk, das sogleich das knapp fünfjährige Schweigen seit ihrem Debütalbum “Mondo” (2012) bricht – allem voran die großartige Comeback-Single “Dear To Me”.
Selbstsicher, selbstverwirklicht und ungemein eingängig sind die neuen Songs auf “Plural” an denen u.a. Joanna Newsom, Haim oder Justin Young von The Vaccines mitwirkten. Aufgenommen im heimischen L.A. überzeugen Electric Guest darauf mit einem unkonventionellen Mix aus Electro, Pop und R&B. So auch auf der aktuellen Single “Back For Me”.
Ende April kommen Electric Guest auf Deutschland-Tour: 24.04. Hamburg, Knust // 25.04. Berlin, Musik & Frieden // 27.04. München, Strom Club // 28.04. Köln, Gebäude 9.
