Country Music Hall of Famer Charlie Daniels Featured on Title Track

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 16, 2017) – Scooter Brown Band announced that they will release their first-ever nationally distributed album, American Son. The project will is being released by Red River / BFD  / Sony Orchard on Friday, September 8 and is now available for presale at www.scooterbrownband.com.

“This album sets the tone for what fans can expect from us on the road and on their radios. True country and southern rock music, what we were born and raised on,” said lead singer Scooter Brown.

The title track, “American Son,” features none other than one of America’s truest sons, Charlie Daniels, a southern rock and country icon that Scooter Brown has looked up to his entire life and sought advice from often in recent years. The Country Music Hall of Famer contributes his gritty southern drawl to the track like only he can, driving it home as one of the most anticipated songs on the album.  Nashville Country Club debuted the track earlier this week calling it “a gritty unapologetic track that has a rockin’ musical arrangement for the band’s Southern Rock appeal.” Fans can listen to the single on Spotify and Apple Music and purchase it on iTunes or Amazon.

The southern-rock revivalists, as they’ve become known, have been on the road for the past few years playing for fans around the country with 100 plus shows both headlining and opening for iconic acts like the Charlie Daniels Band, Travis Tritt, the Marshall Tucker Band and many more. Scooter Brown Band is managed by David Corlew and booked by APA Nashville.

About Scooter Brown Band
After 4 years and 3 months, 2 tours overseas with 1 tour of combat in Iraq as a United States Marine, Scooter Brown traded his guns in for guitars and hit the road. Scooter Brown Band was formed and began playing mainly in and around Houston, Texas. Along with their growing notoriety came their first radio single “Apology.” Other regional radio releases were soon to follow and include “Whiskey Talkin”, “Soldiers Christmas Eve”, “Feels Like Home,”, and “Summer Song”. The band has released a number of independent albums, strengthening their chops in the studio, however they truly shine in their live show. SBB has toured the country and opened for some of their biggest influences including  Charlie Daniels Band, Travis Tritt and the Marshall Tucker Band, just to name a few. For the last year the band has been building a new era in their career and are gearing up for the release of their newest project this Fall — defining modern southern rock.

ENFIELD, CT, Feb. 2, 2017 – Local author and long-time Connecticut resident, Shawn Flynn, is pleased to announce the release of, “THE KITTY Who Rescued Me After I Rescued Him,” currently available from Amazon.com and everywhere books are sold. A touching and inspiring story of heartfelt companionship, THE KITTY offers an uplifting perspective on what it means to find true friendship in this world.

“I’ve had this story in my head for years about the love affair I have with my cats and decided to take some time to document my thoughts,” commented Mr. Flynn. “Before I knew it, I had a book. People who I shared my initial manuscript with were touched, and they encouraged me to see if I could get it published.”

What people are saying about THE KITTY:

“This book would be great for families and to read to your kids… I promise this book is a perfect cat lover best read!!” -Katzenworld, United Kingdom

"Heartwarming story of the love and healing power that rescue cats can bring into our lives and homes. Even if you are not currently a cat-lover, you'll become one after reading this story. ENJOY!" -Kathy McAfee, author of Stop Global Boring

"A very touching, nice story to read. Animal children love you unconditionally and make your world brighter." -Tamara Taylor

"This would be the perfect book for any cat lover on your shopping list. A funny, sweet and endearing true tale of a single man and his cats. Shawn Flynn captures the true essence of the profound impact our pets can have on our happiness and sense of stability." -John McLeod

After 25 years working in a market research career, Mr. Flynn decided to step away to pursue his passion for writing. He knew he wanted to explore his deep connection with cats, particularly the first cat he ever rescued.

There's a new petition taking off on Change.org, and we think you might be interested in signing it.

Petitioning United States Congress, Kevin McCarthy, Mitch McConnell

Ask Congress to Outlaw Dog and Cat Meat in the U.S.

Petition by Lady Freethinker
11,768
Supporters
 
 

Did you know that dog and cat meat is completely legal in 44 states of the U.S.? That’s right — as shocked and outraged as so many of us are about the brutality to companion animals in other parts of the world, the truth is that the slaughter is happening right here in our homeland, too.

A mere 6 states have outlawed dog and cat meat; that leaves nearly 90% of the country with no law protecting these animals from being killed, butchered and eaten.

But now, there is an opportunity to finally end this atrocity. Congressman Alcee L. Hastings (D-FL) has introduced H.R. 1406, the Dog and Cat Meat Trade Prohibition Act of 2017, which will prohibit the transport, sale, and possession of dogs or cats to be slaughtered for human consumption. 

"This bill allows the United States to stand in unity with other countries that have made the dog and cat meat trade illegal, while also giving the United States greater standing to urge other countries to end this brutal and inhumane practice once and for all,” said Hastings.

This legislation was cosponsored by Reps. Vern Buchanan (R-FL), Dave Trott (R-MI), and Brenden F. Boyle (D-PA). And with the support of both parties, there is no excuse for Congress not to pass this lifesaving bill.

Please sign the petition urging Congress to enact the Dog and Cat Meat Trade Prohibition Act of 2017 at once. It’s time for America to finally protect its companion animals from slaughter.

Meowijuana Launches Catnip Product Line
for "Cats Who Need the Weed"
PRESS RELEASE NOV 29, 2016 08:00 CST
Meowijuana, a catnip company, launches new product line
that makes a great holiday gift and is available for pet
stores to sell nationwide.
Kansas City, Missouri, November 29, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Meowijuana LLC, a catnip
company, has launched a new product line that is creatively branded and plays on the
euphoric "high" some cats have from catnip. The company sells 100 percent organic catnip
that is available for shipping both domestically and internationally. Meowijuana’s legendary
catnip is grown in Southern California and Washington State.
Although the company uses the trademarked tag line, “For cats who need the weed”, there is
no actual marijuana in the product. It is perfectly safe and legal for both cats, and even
people, to consume. Catnip, which is from the mint family, contains the chemical
nepetalactone, which triggers a sense of euphoria in susceptible cats. But not all cats react
to catnip. Pet MD has noted that sensitivity to catnip is an inherited trait effecting 50 to 75
percent of cats. Catnip produces a different response depending on how it’s consumed.
Sniffing catnip produces a stimulant effect while eating it can cause sedation in cats.
The company also sells the product similarly to the
way marijuana dispensaries do in Colorado and
other states where it is legal. Meowijuana’s Purple
Passion Jars offer the product in clear re-sealable
jars. The catnip buds were harvested during peak oil
product providing cats the next-level catnip
experience. For the most dedicated catnip
connoisseurs, Meowijuana offers the Grand Daddy
Purr Cigar Box. The humidity-regulated cigar boxes
are filled with the finest 100 percent organic Grand
Daddy Purr Catnip buds. The company even offers their customers, a Medical Meowijuana ID
card, which includes the cat’s pictures, name, sex and date of birth.
“We offer the highest-quality, pet-safe, organic catnip you will find on the market today all
packaged in a unique branding concept that our customers love,” says Chris Glissman, CEO
"We offer the highest-quality, petsafe,
organic catnip you will find on

unique branding concept that our
customers love. Our team has a
