NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 16, 2019) – Honey County brings the country music community together in their inspiring new music video, “Country Strong.” Premiered by Billboard, the country trio dedicates the video to the resilient country music community and their ability to rise up through hard times. A portion of the profits from the song are being donated to ACM Lifting Lives, the charitable arm of the Academy of Country Music, aimed to develop and fund music-related therapy and education programs, serving members of the community who face unexpected hardships. The song can be streamed here.

“The feel-good pop-country track urges listeners to be strong in the face of adversity. With stunning three-part harmonies, inspiring lyrics and soaring guitar parts, the anthem strikes a chord.” - Annie Reuter, Billboard

Dancers Kristal Lynn, who was at Borderline the night of the shooting, and Annemarie Dunn choreographed a special dance for the debut of “Country Strong” at Stagecoach Music Festival in April. The song has since been featured on playlists like “Cool Country” on Apple Music, “New Music Nashville” on Spotify and “Stagecoach 2019” on Amazon Music. The song has also been played heavily by Radio Country Disney and Southern California’s KFRG and received rave reviews following its release.

Rolling Stone Country calls it one of the “best Country and Americana songs to hear now” and an “anthemic tribute.”

The Los Angeles Times says of their performance at Stagecoach “for sheer emotional impact, it will be hard for any of the superstar acts playing at the three-day Stagecoach country music festival to top what transpired Saturday.”

Huffington Post calls “Country Strong” a “heartfelt tribute.”

The Orange County Register labels it a “song for healing and unity.”

In addition, Dani, Katie and Devon were guests on Westwood One’s “Breaking Thru with Elaina” this past weekend. The trio continues to see much success from their High on the Radio EP release earlier this year, and several singles as “Love Someone” was prominently placed on the final season of CMT’s “Nashville” while “Los Angeles” was featured on E! News Weekend and its remix on the NFL Network’s “Total Access.” Keep up with the girls and additional tour dates on their website at honeycounty.com.

Sylvia's SECOND BLOOM - The Hits Re-Imagined

Set For June 8 Release

'80s Icon Blossoms With New Interpretations Of "Drifter," "Nobody," "Cry Just A Little Bit" & More

 
 

Nashville, TN (May 11, 2018) - Academy of Country Music Female Vocalist Of the Year, Grammy nominee and multi-million selling '80s icon Sylvia is set to release her newest CD, SECOND BLOOM - The Hits Re-Imagined, on Red Pony Records June 8. The album is available for pre-order now from iTunes and CD Baby.  Fans who order digitally will receive "Like Nothing Ever Happened" as an instant gratification track. Those who prefer a disc, will have their album autographed by Sylvia and receive an email containing instructions on how to obtain their "grat track" download. The project's first single, a reprise of Sylvia's signature Country/Pop smash, "Nobody," has just been released to radio and programmers can download the track HERE

SECOND BLOOM includes 10 all-new interpretations of her # 1 / Top 10 hits from the RCA years (1979 to 1987). The Indiana-born songstress became known for her unique "Prairie Music" sound, with hits like "Drifter" and "Tumbleweed," and crossed over to the Pop market with the unforgettable "Nobody," which sold an astounding two million copies, spent 52 weeks on the Billboard charts, and was named BMI's Song of the Year. Sylvia's new version of "Sweet Yesterday" brings her life experience to bare with an even more poignant and meditative take on the song. "Cry Just A Little Bit" is updated with strings and drums with an infectious shuffle feel, while "Fallin' In Love" takes a decidedly Bluegrass spin that swings joyfully along as Sylvia's voice and Andy Leftwich's fiddle take turns in the spotlight. The disc closes with "You Can't Go Back Home," a song that was not previously released as a single, but serves as an allegory for Sylvia's approach to recording SECOND BLOOM. The song metaphorically reflects her intention to not re-record the songs note-for-note but to give them a fresh rendering. Sylvia's interpretation of the song is subtle, reflective, and memorable. This is Sylvia at her most powerful.


 

Message from Sylvia



The synthesizer-laden, Country/Pop sound of the past is replaced throughout with a cleaner, more streamlined and organic approach. Tin whistles and strings are paired, fiddle and classical guitar meet - and in each joining they form a magical backdrop for Sylvia's clear and soulful vocals. While much of her formative music is defined by a certain era and genre, the songs themselves are bound only by the artist's imagination. And Sylvia has imagination to spare. She and longtime collaborator John Mock modernized instrumentation and voicing and, in some cases, departed dramatically from the original production values. Consistent, however, are the signature licks that fans will recognize and Sylvia's genuine reverence for these tunes that form her artistic lineage.

"My desire was to bring my music from the '80s into alignment with the music I'm creating today," she notes.  "I wanted to breathe new life into the songs as if I was recording them for the first time while still honoring their musical identity. I believe the spirit of the music is just as relevant today as it was when these songs first bloomed."

On SECOND BLOOM, Sylvia bridges the gap, bringing these hits to life in a new way while paying homage to the music that made her a star. This is an album that is by turns introspective and carefree, evocative and joyful. Longtime fans will remember why they fell in love with Sylvia's music, while new admirers will be captivated by the purity of her voice and musical convictions.

Natalia Morris, oldest sister and main songwriter for SOUTHERN HALO, will join host Jon Patch this Saturday, April 21, live on his Talkin’ Pets radio show to chat about their upcoming album, as well as their love of animals and array of pets (fish, birds, cat, dog and hamster.)

The concept-driven, dream-inspired JUST LIKE IN THE MOVIES. This 14-track package, produced by Catt Gravitt and Gerald O'Brien, mirrors the emotional and musical growth of Natalia, Hannah and Christina Morris, the three sisters from the Mississippi Delta who form SOUTHERN HALO.

Inspired by a dream of Natalia's, JUST LIKE IN THE MOVIES features 10 songs written or co-written by the lead vocalist/guitarist, and four titles from Music City's hottest tunesmiths. The catchy ode to the glories of Southern womanhood, "Southern Halo," kicks off the project and marks the first "scene" of this movie-made-music.  A co-write with Roxie Dean, the strong, multi-layered vocals and sing-along chorus make this a natural choice for the first "instant gratification track" offered with each  iTunes and Amazon pre-order of the CD.  The disc is the second outing for the trio with SESAC's 2012 Writer of the Year Catt Gravitt (Kelly Clarkson, Jake Owen) and Gerald O'Brien (Martina McBride, Trace Adkins) at the helm.

Continuing the album's theme is the first single "Anything Is Possible."  Written by Gravitt and award-winning songwriter/producer Carl Falk, the hooky, upbeat track is a veritable anthem to the power of positive thinking and is already resonating at Country radio.  A lyric video, featuring performance footage, can be seen on YouTube.

JUST LIKE IN THE MOVIES explores the excitement found and challenges faced when chasing one's dream.  The eagerness to experience new places is offset by the longing for the constant comforts of home, while the idea that anyone can indeed reach for the stars is reinforced.  Natalia, Hannah and Christina continue to prove that dreams do come true - if you work hard and believe.  Highlights abound, and the tracks range from Rock-ish ("My Girls & Me") to beautifully poignant ("Not Today") to confrontational ("Hey Boy").

The album's title track is a Pop/Rock-infused, modern-day fairytale that features underscored Rap-style background vocals and a sultry yet whimsical feel.  Written by Gravitt, Jana Kramer and Brian Kierulf, "Just Like In The Movies" showcases SOUTHERN HALO's diversity and their fearless approach to music.  The track was singled in the U.K. late last year and enjoyed enormous success.  

"Missing Mississippi," written by Natalia and Jennifer Adan, slows things down with the true tale of Natalia's first night in her new Nashville home.  Sweet, reflective and emotional, the song shows that sacrifices are always made in pursuit of the dreams that inspire us.  Another track that shines the light on leaving, "Famous" tells the tale of the loneliness that can surround stardom.  Penned with Alex Dooley, the message is deep - and partially hidden by a seductive melody.  "Tom Girl," written with Melissa Bollea Rowe, describes a character familiar to the Morris sisters: someone who loves to get their hands dirty, but also loves to dress up for special occasions.  As Natalia says, "everyone talks about 'tom boys' or 'girly girls' - no one ever talks about 'tom girls.'  Christina loves fishing while Hannah rides horses and I enjoy building projects in our backyard, but we love to get prettied up for a night out.  We're all 'tom girls.'"

Tom girls they may be, but Natalia, Hannah and Christina are all driven by the same dream. Music inspired SOUTHERN HALO; now their songs are inspiring young Country fans everywhere.  Drummer Christina and bassist Hannah are still in their late teens, and Natalia just recently crossed over into her early 20s.  They're exploring, challenging themselves to take risks and raise their bar - and JUST LIKE IN THE MOVIES proves they have reached new heights - and they are proud of it.  This new album is poised to follow the phenomenal success of their previous, eponymous CD, and is sure to bring new listeners to the fold as it breaks new ground for the trio.

ABOUT SOUTHERN HALO

Since their hypnotically-upbeat Country radio debut, "Little White Dress," caught the attention of U.S. radio and press (spending eight weeks at #1 on the International Hotdisc Chart) this sibling trio has broken down doors and shattered glass ceilings.  Their sophomore single, "Rewind," was a U.S. Top 40 MusicRow CountryBreakout™ Chart hit that also held the #1 spot on the Hotdisc Chart for two weeks.  The group's third single, "Living Like That," quickly found success of its own, and further bolstered the trio's profile.  It's been a fast ride to the big stage for these Delta darlings.  Since landing in the National Finals of the 2014 Texaco Country Showdown as the youngest competitors ever, the band has opened for Maren Morris, Deana Carter, Love and Theft, Brantley Gilbert, Eric Paslay, Tyler Farr, Parmalee, Old Dominion, American Young, Blues immortal B.B. King and legendary chanteuse Dionne Warwick, among many others.  The Cleveland, Mississippi natives have performed at the CMA Music Festival, at a pre-show on the rooftop terrace of the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles and launched Townsquare Media's "Say It With Pepsi" Concert Series.

Leather cover

If you were to turn on an old transistor radio and tune it to a country station, you might hear legends like Merle Haggard, Hank Williams, and Johnny Cash crooning from the speakers… but newcomer Paul Bogart could just as easily fit alongside that vintage lineup. Though his songs are fresh and he himself is young, he is an old soul with a knack for capturing time-honored traditions and summing up classic sentiments in catchy, three-minute songs. Exuding sincerity and a rare, down-to-earth charm, Paul Bogart is, simply put, the epitome of traditional country music.

Possessing elements of a quippy, good-natured Brad Paisley song along with the boots-and-spurs appeal of a George Strait tune, Bogart’s music additionally radiates authenticity, a core component of country music.

Bogart’s new release, Leather, is the perfect paradigm of that Old West lifestyle that Bogart himself lives and breathes, “This album is about hard work, hustle, and loving the woman God gave you,” he says candidly. “It’s about keeping your head down when you win and crawling back in the saddle when you hit the ground.” Sentiments Bogart knows firsthand, having grown up in north-east Oklahoma to a family of truckers, team ropers and musicians; the title track, “Leather,” hearkens back to those Heartland roots and homegrown work ethic. “I think about my grandparents and how hard they worked to make it,” muses Paul. “It’s given me inspiration and motivation to work hard and never give up on my dreams.” Indeed, Leather taps into the belief that there’s beauty that comes from weathering storms together and seeing tough times through; it’s an anthem for anyone who’s ever pressed on, persevered, or prayed for something better.

Paul’s lead single and video, “All That Cowboy Jazz,” is an infectious western swing song that will have listeners on their feet, boot-scootin’ across the floor in seconds. Co-written with a Hall of Fame radio DJ (WSM’s Bill Whyte) and a world class multi-instrumentalist (Zach Runquist), Bogart lists the let-loose, line-dance-potential number as a personal favorite from the album.

Produced by Sony Nashville recording artist Trent Willmon (Little Big Town’s “Rain on a Tin Roof,” Montgomery Gentry’s “Back When I Knew It All”), Leather was released on September 8th, 2017.

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 The Bellamy Brothers:
Howard and David continue to prove that the trail they’ve ridden to fame has been as unique as their music itself—music that is now celebrating 40 years of success. The road that started on the pop music charts in the ‘70’s, took a winding turn into country music in the ‘80’s, paving the way for duos to come, such as Brooks & Dunn, Montgomery Gentry, Big & Rich, and The Judds. “If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me),” originally scrawled on a dinner napkin by David, rocketed them to the top of the country charts the way “Let Your Love Flow,” had done in the pop market just a few years earlier. It proved to be the first of a string of fourteen No. 1 singles in the U.S. alone. They’re the only U.S. country music act who've toured in India, Sri Lanka, New Caledonia and Qatar. The Bellamy Brothers hold the record in both the Academy of Country Music (ACM) and the Country Music Association Awards (CMA) for the most duo nominations. Numerous Grammy nods have also been directed toward the brothers. For more information, visit bellamybrothers.com.
