  1. BRAD MARKS: With respect
    BRAD MARKS’ single, WITH RESPECT, is about reflection. It's about young people of today not having any idea about the sacrifices that were made for our country and for our benefit by the soldiers who were around the same age at the time. The song is about taking a minute to think about exactly that and to reflect on the lives that were lost and what it meant not only for the people living in that time but for the generations to come. "I want people to hear the song and think back to those times and think how those sacrifices changed so much and to understand how important those people are to this day and will be for many years to come"
  2. BRENDAN SMOOTHER: Stretcher bearer
    BRENDAN SMOOTHER’s STRETCHER BEARER, from the PARAMEDIC SUICIDE EP, is an ANZAC tribute with a heritage style and was written by Brendan to honour what he does as a profession. A paramedic of 20 years, as well as having been an army medic, Brendan is well equipped to get inside of this topic and bring out the emotion of this subject in song. As Brendan explains, “Something inside of me took over, I feel very humbled by our military history and wanted to do it justice by honouring the heritage of our medics. Coupled with a finger picked chord progression that I had been waiting for years to use on something special. The result is one that I am very proud of.” Recorded at Love Street Studios on the Gold Coast, Brendan’s talents are enhanced with touches of fine musicianship from LAWRIE MINSON, PIXIE JENKINS, SCOTT HILLS and JAMIE SULLIVAN
  3. DEAN PERRETT: The Veteran
    THE VETERAN, written by ALLAN CASWELL, DREW McALISTER and DEAN PERRETT, was the first single released from Dean’s album entitled DUSTY SKY. The song takes a hard-hitting and honest look at the Aussie farmers /cattlemen, who all their lives have battled the elements and hardships in a never-ceasing war with floods, drought, fire, debts and government. Life on the land is a tough slog and it takes the guts, courage and determination of any battlefield to make it a life career and a success. Recorded at Marrs Recording Studio in Nashville, TN and co-produced by LARRY MARRS and DEAN, THE VETERAN delivers an important story of rural Australia today.
  4. J.R. WILLIAMS: White crosses in the jungle

When he first started recording in Tamworth, thanks to JOHN MINSON, he was given the opportunity to tour with two of Australia’s great pioneers, RICK and THEL CAREY. Hearing WHITE CROSSES IN THE JUNGLE performed every night, he soon fell in love with the song, came off tour and recorded it on his 2nd album. Now many years later J R WILLIAMS decided he should re-record this superb song as a tribute to all those who sacrificed so much so we could live free in this great country. Released in Feb 2015

    Following on from the release of WHITE CROSSES IN THE JUNGLE on the February CRS (CRS 179), SUVLA BAY was J R WILLIAMS’ 2nd single release as a tribute to the ANZACS, a song that would have to be one of our most popular war songs. From JR’s early years in music, this is a song he has performedmany times, a classic song that many people have enjoyed over the years. SUVLA BAY has also brought sadness as they remember the sad loss of lives and it is fitting that, in recording a tribute to the ANZACS, JR included this wonderful song

The song beautifully touches on the broken heart and reflects on the strength to carry on. Lucy, whose upbringing was surrounded by music, was inspired, at an early age, to write and sing her own music. It all began at the Tamworth Country Music Festival when Lucy was called to perform at the local nursing homes and was a busker on Peel Street. It was at that moment when she realised Country Music was her destiny and the missing pieces of her life came together naturally and transcended through to her music. Lucy has released a total of 13 singles, 2 albums and 2 cover albums based on her musical influences such as Johnny Cash, Connie Francis, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Dwight Yoakam, The Mavericks and Brenda Lee. Lucy's vocal offers a blend of Australian and American county but has a unique and changing tone colour from song to song. Lucy's songs are emotive and radiate to the listener's soul. Her creative songwriting talent displays a personal touch and her lyrics provoke reminiscence and evoke a sense of 'deja vu'. Let Lucy Pace, Melbourne's formidable musical country music artist take you every 'step by step' of the journey

  5. RUSSELL BOYD: Wash it all away
    Russell brings his own unique sound and style to his music and we believe this song not only highlights that uniqueness. but also dives into a well known subject matter with a divergent touch. Wash It All Away is about leaving something in life, ending an era, and starting fresh somewhere else. It?s about the pain involved leaving something you know needs to be behind you, and the fear of starting again.

  6. COOPER WADE: In the middle of the second verse
    "In the Middle of the Second Verse", is another in the long line of real country music singles released from Cooper Wade and the 2nd single off his new album "I Ain't Playin' Around". This song has the feel of a 90's country song that is perfect for scooting around the dance floor. The song is set in a small, smoke-filled bar with about 15 local patrons, an old juke box in the corner, small dance floor and a girl that is unforgettably gorgeous. The dulcet tones of the telecaster and the steel guitar bring the mood to life and the lyrics paint the perfect picture.

    ISRC: QZDA61929973
  9. JESSE STRATTON BAND: Far away and long ago
    Far Away & Long Ago was inspired by the restaurant where I met my wife, which has long since closed its doors, and describes a theme that most people seem to relate to - "All the greenest grass will grow, in the fields of yesterday, so take me back to long ago, and follow me to far away." Rather than a somber song of longing, it is a triumphant celebration of the memories and experiences that have led me to where I am today.

    I spent most of my life hiding from attention, yet I've chosen a career that requires me to be in the spotlight. The moment I step on the stage and begin to play, my anxiety fades and I'm able to find peace connecting with the audience through my music. God has called me forward to turn my biggest fears into the gift I'm here to share with the world and build a platform to inspire others to overcome their challenges and push toward their dreams. I've lived around the country-from Washington to Georgia-as well as abroad in Japan, but I'm a Texas gal at heart. I was born in Corpus Christi, attended Dallas Baptist University, and I'm currently preparing for the Texas radio tour, where I'll be visiting over 50 stations around the state to do interviews and promote my debut EP. When I'm not singing my heart out onstage, you can find me geeking out over Star Wars memorabilia,reciting Disney movies to my family by memory, or making plans to cage dive with Great White Sharks.

Easter Greetings to you and I hope this finds you well. I know it has been a very long time since you may have heard from me and certainly with anything new but finally...here it is! My new single 'If I Could' is now released.

'If I Could' is a light hearted, easy listening love song with a calypso country vibe. A bit different to my previous works but I’m in a different headspace these days. Maybe its the result of some recent travels! Produced by Marcus Holden, mastered by Michael Carpenter with guitar and bass played by my good mate Geoff Andrew. It’s available for listeners right now on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon etc and CDBaby for those outside of Australia.

Hope you enjoy the song and I promise it won't be too long between drinks for the next one!

When Pam Jackson sings a country song it comes from the very roots of all the qualities that make this genre what it is - simple, sincere and very moving. Her voice appeals to the ordinary people who love simple country music - often known as traditional country. Pam Jackson has grown up absorbed in the recorded performances of her musical heroes. This is reflected by her voice in a very recognisable yet original style that is unique to her alone.

In 2009 Pam Jackson burst on to the country scene with her version of the Loretta Lynn classic "They Don't Make 'Em Like My Daddy Anymore". Later that year she spent time in Nashville and recorded two tracks from her "Guardian Angels" album in the world renowned "Tracking Room Studios".

Pam also spent time presenting her show "Jacksons Jambouree" on the ever popular www.irishcountrymusicradio.com (ICMR internet radio station) In 2014 Pam took some time out following the birth of her daughter and in May 2015 opened for Nashville's "Lost Hollow" (Tommy & Lorrie Harden) during their very successful Irish tour.

MARTY RIVERS  February of ´59 (S)
As a follow-up single to 'Why Don't You' which, thanks to DJs like yourself, hit the number one spot on 3 different radio charts, I am releasing my second single from my new album 'Maltese Falcon'. The song is called 'February of '59,' written by me, Marty Rivers and Joe Spiteri; produced by Gary Carter at GC Studios, Nashville.

The subject of the song is the tragic plane crash that claimed the lives of Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson, back in February of 1959, sixty years ago.

I'd like to thank you for all your support, All the best! Marty Rivers

JASE LANSKY  Hella good time (S)
The song is booked for public release by Key2Artist Promotions on the 12th April, but I’m that excited about the track I thought I’d send you a copy before the official release date. I wrote ‘Hella Good Time’ while I was out in Texas, Queensland last year and have tried to drive that whole ‘country music’ feel while still maintaining a solid ‘rock’ base… and it’s pretty addictive J. We also recently shot the music video for the track and will be releasing that on the 12th April as well.

As an Australian artist and song writer I am extremely grateful to you and HAWKRIDGE STUDIO for getting behind independent artists like myself. I really hope you all enjoy ‘Hella Good Time’, and I’m pleased to say that it will be one of the tracks added to my forth coming album released later in the year.

Again, thank you so very much, and please feel free to contact me if you would like to know more about my music.

ROY COST  Please don´t play south of the border (S)
Hello Mr. Ohlzon, I hope you are doing great in the beautiful nation of Sweden. I invite you to join some of us on Reverb Nation. My page is www.reverbnation.com/artist/roycost.

I thank you for playing the independents. I wanted to email you one of my songs that is fairly traditional with a little touch of Spanish flavor; (Please Don't Play South Of The Border). I hope you like it and will give it some air play. Maybe you haven't heard this Music Trivia tale before. A Music Story For You: In the 60s Joe Reeves and I of the Shadows were shopping for a record label so we saw this ad in the phone book "University Records" so we looked up the address and knocked on the man's door. He was very friendly and said, "Sit down boys I want to play you the next big hit record; so he got his old cassette machine out and played a song and Joe looked at me and we kinda communicated quietly, "Naw, back and forth." It wasn't very long until.... sure enough that song was up to about # 6 on Billboard. Eventually it was a million seller by The Little Dippers entitled "Forever". One day the writer or producer had some recording time left over so he got the late Floyd Cramer and the Anita Kerr Singers to record the song with about 12 words and out came a million seller. I was proud to be a small part of that experience. I think Mr. Saddler was a car salesman or dealer but they put the record out on '''University Records''', quite a fairly tale.

Boy I learned back then..you just never knew when a song recorded in a bath-room or garage was gonna make a hit. Of course it was easier to break through radio back then. Floyd was like family to me and what a talent especially on ''Last Date''', '''Forever''', and something extra special is Floyd's version of the Rod Stewart song, "Have I Told You Lately" not to be confused with Floyd's other recording of the old standard "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You". (((Photo L. Roy Cost, middle Floyd Cramer, R. the late Al Crump)).

Instrumentals like Forever use to really be big in America as did story or humor or novelty songs but now they wouldn't get past the secretary at our big country FMs.

Roy Cost was influenced by the late Bob Luman who he use to listen to on the Louisiana Hayride. Cost recorded his first record in 1959 with America's version of 'The Shadows'. Over the years Cost has written several hundred songs and some of them can be heard on today's radio. His most popular record song came in 1959, 'East Of Tulsa' of which he recorded at Bill Black's new studio in Memphis, Tennessee. That recording got him into Nashville on Ralph Emery's WSM nightly show and on the legendary Grant Turner's early morning show also over WSM. The Tulsa song was a trucker favorite and was programmed by many stations across the south. He recorded with the famous Bill Black in 1965 at Bill's old studio on Chelsea Street, Memphis producing the record song, "You Can Count On Me". It became the # 1 song at Little Rock's KALO the second week and the flip-side, "Ketchy", an instrumental charted on KWHN, Ft. Smith, Arkansas and was programmed on the giant, KAAY in Little Rock. Other Cost phonograph records include "Family Man"/"Everytime I'm Kissing You"; "Anchorage Coal Fields"/"My Kind Of Woman"; "Susie Jones"/"Run Ruby Run"; "Drinking Beer And Shooting Pool"/"Your Love Is Here To Stay" and the record song, "You Made Me Cry".

His most played song of the modern age is "The Real You" and was a double # 1 on Sound-Click. These days Cost can be heard on radio and on various venues such as Reverb Nation.

Several artists have recorded Cost's songs including Allen Karl, Donna Ray, Kitty Houston, and Joyce Ramgatie of The Netherlands. Ramgatie recorded Cost's "I Just Can't Stand To Lose You"which was well received in Europe & Australia/NZ and Cost recorded the Ramgatie & Fred Irving song, "Old Huntin' Dawg'. He has recorded duets with Kitty Houston and Joyce Ramgatie but they have never met personally

    Aaron Kantor has the ?it? factor?that certain something that eludes so many of today's aspiring artists. It's not just Aaron's pure, natural country voice; it?s not just his undeniable talent for songwriting or his inviting presence on stage. ?It? is all of these talents and more ~ MP3.com Boasting a lean and velvety, crooning deep voice ? a rarity in country music that comprises of less than a few handfuls that have mastered the low register, such as credited by Johnny Cash, Don Williams, George Strait, and Josh Turner ? country singer/songwriter Aaron Kantor carries the torch of authoritative old-school bass baritones, meshed with a modern approach

    GOODnGONE is a rocking Texas country band that makes its home in the North Dallas area. Since forming in 2009, GOODnGONE has been bringing fresh modern edge country music to venues across North Texas and Oklahoma. GOODnGONE's original material combines modern country-rock guitar with a touch of classic twang. ?Momma Don?t? is about not giving up on someone who is struggling and keeping faith in them when they are not in a healthy state. The character feels he just about has it all worked out and is ready for change, so Momma Don?t give up on me now (I just about got this figured out).
  4. HOLLY TUCKER: Country music won´t let me
    We?ve all had our hearts shattered a time or two. Some of those experiences leave such deep scars that simply hearing one sad, country song can take you right back to that exact moment. This new power ballad from Texas CMA Female Vocalist of the Year, Holly Tucker, does exactly that. From the very first, longing cry of the steel guitar, this song grabs listeners right by the heart. Featuring tender, but soaring, heart-wrenching vocals, Tucker also exposes her true vulnerability & authenticity as an artist by writing her own personal experience with heartbreak into this powerful song.

A quick wit and a wicked grin helps to disarm even the staunchest critic, and leaves those around him with an appetite for his tales of American life, told by a man who has lived it.

    Fresh off the newly released self titled album Chuck hits the ground running with this follow up to "Burn That Oil". Chuck says: "This is my favorite song on the album. It?s also the oldest. I wrote it when I was 19. My sophomore year of college I took a songwriting class and our homework one night was to write a song that told a story. I went out hiking in the small town of Monument, Colorado and on the way home we drove by a park with a sign that said, ?Dirty Woman Creek?. I thought that would be a great name for a bar and I would write a song telling a story about this place. I played it for my class the next day and they absolutely loved it! Then I played it at shows and parties around campus and people would tell me they loved the song. I?ve been writing songs since I was 13, but my earlier stuff never got the kind of reaction this one did. Dirty Woman Creek gave me the confidence to pursue songwriting as a job. It changed my life. I kind of consider it my first-born childISRC: QM9AA1890909 From the Album: CHUCK SHAW BAND."

  17. SEASON AMMONS: Daddy raised hell
    From the Album: NEON SIDE OF TOWN. True story, my Dad was a hell raiser, he was also one of the kindest, thoughtful and most charming guys you could?ve ever know Unfortunately, he just wrestled with too many demons and was never able to face his troubles. He struggled with being happy and living a fulfilling life. Growing up it wasn?t always easy to watch, especially within already strained family dynamics. The harsh reality is we don?t get to choose our family and at times have to live through and tolerate bad situations. Through it all my Mom always had a forgiving heart and a positive way of looking at things and she taught me to smile and walk with my head high. So, when I wrote this song with bittersweet memories it made me look back and see that sometimes parents just do the best they can with what they have at the time. If I hadn?t grown up the hard way like I did and learned from my Dad?s mistakes I wouldn?t be who I am oday.

SIXPACK HOLIDAY  
  1. Randy
  2. Please don´t ask

Sixpack Holiday måste vara ett band som helt och fullt omfamnar tanken att saker och ting får ta sin tid, att vägen är mödan värd och allt det där. Hur kan man annars förklara att det gått elva år utan ett livstecken sedan skivdebuten »Songs From The Doghouse« (2008)?

Fast utan ett livstecken var inte riktigt rättvist. Sixpack har spenderat många timmar i replokalen, de har säkert spelat ett tiotal bejublade konserter och de har av och till tillbringar de senaste två åren i inspelningsstudion. Så det handlar inte om någon egentlig comeback eller återförening. Sixpack har funnits hela tiden, stretat på och har haft kul under tiden. Och blivit bättre och bättre.

Men nu är det äntligen dags att visa upp vad alla timmarna i studion resulterat i och till en början får vi två låtar, »Please Don't Ask« och »Randy«.

Håll till godo och låt oss hoppas att det inte tar ytterligare elva år innan vi får höra mer

BUDDY JEWELL  Reloaded (EP)
Buddy Jewell burst onto the country music scene after winning the inaugural season of the USA Network’s hit television series “Nashville Star.” After Buddy’s win, Columbia Records released his self-titled debut album “Buddy Jewell” which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Album charts as well as #13 on the Top 100 Pop Album Charts. The album was certified Gold later that same year, selling over ½ million copies. Buddy’s first two singles, “Sweet Southern Comfort” and “Help Pour Out the Rain (Lacey’s Song)” both landed in the top 5 on the singles chart. Jewell has since followed up with 5 more albums, “Times Like These,” “Country Enough” , “I Surrender All”, “Wanted : LIVE “ “My Father’s Country.”and his newest release,"Reloaded"

After living throughout the Arkansas Delta in Dyess, Helena-West Helena and Forrest City, Buddy’s family finally settled in Osceola. That’s not far from Dyess, where his mother and father grew up with the Cash family…as in Johnny Cash. Conway Twitty hailed from nearby Helena, and Glen Campbell is a native of Delight. Jewell was influenced by the music of all three. Both of his parents were musical, and there were stacks of classic country records around the house. His uncles Clyde and Hubert taught Jewell to play guitar. Enthralled with the instrument, he began performing publicly, mainly in church, at age 15. Buddy Jewell was also a natural athlete, playing baseball, basketball and football. He was team captain and quarterback of his high school team and played college football at Arkansas State University as well. While in college, he began to perform in clubs and talent contests, igniting his passion for performing and country music.

Buddy Jewell’s voice is the voice of experience. It has a friendly, “lived in” quality because, as the old saying goes, he has “been around.” Born to a working-class family in Arkansas, Jewell has been singing for his supper since the age of 21, from coast to coast. He has also driven a beer truck and worked as a nightclub bouncer. Buddy knows the meaning of hard work and perseverance. In 1985, Jewell became the lead singer of the country band White Oak based in Camden, Arkansas. The group signed up with a booking agency that also represented Canyon, Lariat and Bayou Speak Easy, the last of which was fronted by the then-unknown Trace Atkins. Buddy was making progress, but finally realized that if he was going to get anywhere musically, the family would have to move to Nashville. In January of 1993, Buddy, his wife Tené and their 3 year old son, Buddy III, took that giant leap of faith. In between all those working-stiff jobs, Jewell began to make contacts on Music Row. His larger-than-life voice eventually made him Nashville’s most popular “demo” singer. That’s an anonymous vocalist who is hired to record a demonstration of a song that is then played for a star’s consideration. George Strait’s “Write This Down,” Lee Ann Womack’s “A Little Past Little Rock,” Clay Walker’s “You’re Beginning to Get to Me” and Gary Allan’s “The One” were all first sung as Buddy Jewell demos. He has recorded more than 5,000 such projects. In 1997, alone, Jewell sang 663 song demos. But he yearned for something more. He wanted a shot at the country-music big time. Songwriters and music publishers loved him. The record companies did not. Buddy Jewell became increasingly frustrated as he was turned down for a recording contract by one label after another on Music Row. One offer evaporated when the interested label shut down. Another one vanished when the label was sold. And believe it or not, he missed out on another opportunity because a tornado struck blocks away from a label showcase, knocking out the power! Buddy kept on patiently singing demos with dignity, slowly letting his recording-contract dream die. Daughter Lacey came along in 1993. Second son Joshua was born in 2000.

Fast forward two years…encouraged by his wife, Tené, Buddy entered the USA Network’s contest Nashville Star in 2003. Thousands of performers tried out for the show; 125 of them made it to the semi-finals; 12 were chosen for the nine-week series. Buddy was the true viewer favorite from the premiere episode, capturing 65% of the nationwide voting among the 12 contestants and beating out, most notably, a young Miranda Lambert, by over 2 million votes on the final episode. TV audiences and critics alike fell in love with Buddy Jewell's gentility, enthusiasm and true musical passion. Columbia Records rushed him into the studio with producer Clint Black, and within two weeks Buddy Jewell delivered his superb debut CD. “I had a little website. The first night I sang ‘Help Pour Out the Rain’ on the show, it had so many responses that it crashed the website and cost me about $1000 in overages. I didn’t have a clue that the song would have that kind of impact. Tené and I started printing out emails off the site. A lot of them were from parents whose children had died. I got hundreds of letters. We collected the print-outs and letters and put them in a binder. Not for public consumption. Just for ourselves. I’m honored that I had a hand in creating something that means so much to people. But it was bittersweet. You wish that it was for a happier reason.” The year that followed his win on Nashville Star was truly a dream fulfilled for Buddy. He earned major award nominations from the ACM for Best New Artist, the CMA for the Horizon Award, their version of the Best New Artist of the Year and a Grammy nomination for his participation in Amazing Grace III, a special gospel project. He was also named “New Artist of the Year” by the prestigious ABC Radio Networks. In April 2005, Buddy was honored by the National Fatherhood Initiative as a recipient of their annual Fatherhood Award. Recipients of this award are individuals who exemplify the ideals of involved, responsible and committed fatherhood. First Lady Laura Bush spoke at the event. In 2011, Jewell was named “Entertainer of the Year” and “Crossover Artist of the Year” by the International Country Gospel Music Association. Most recently, in September 2015, he was inducted into the Arkansas Entertainer’s Hall of Fame, taking his place alongside music legends Johnny Cash and Glen Campbell. Jewell's fan base is stronger than ever in 2017. The success of that relationship has always been built on mutual respect and admiration. Buddy remains as immensely loyal to his fans as they are to him. "They are amazing", says Buddy of his fans. "They have followed me and supported me through thick and thin. They have kept me motivated and I'm grateful to them for that. I couldn’t have done this without them." Having shared the stage with the likes of Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Brooks and Dunn, and ZZ Top, Buddy Jewell is a well-rounded performer, a true entertainer, and an absolute crowd pleaser. Buddy, an Arkansas native, is a true southern gentleman both on and off the stage. Above all these things, Buddy is a proud Arkansan, a loving father, a devoted husband, passionate patriot and an outspoken Christ follower. He has always reached out to his community and beyond, and considers his roles as spokesperson for The Minnie Pearl Cancer Foundation and work with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as some of the most important of his career. Jewell has also been a constant supporter of our men and women in uniform throughout his career. In December 2010, Buddy traveled with the Sergeant Major of the Army, Kenneth O. Preston to Afghanistan, Iraq and Kuwait on an extensive USO tour, visiting and performing for our troops in remote forward operating bases, "If they can put their lives on the line for me and my family on a daily basis, spending a couple weeks facing the same challenges and hostile environment as they do is the least I can do to show my appreciation." "I believe in giving back", asserts Jewell. "Everyone can make a positive difference. With a little time and a little effort, we can make this world a better place."

MEL McDANIEL  The Last Ride (A)
Singer - songwriter and Grand Ole Opry inductee, Mel McDaniel, was born in Checotah and raised in Okmulgee, both in the state of Oklahoma. Although his father drove a truck for a living, the young Mel found himself driven towards a very different career, music, after seeing Elvis Presley perform. Such was his motivation, that at age 14, Mel taught himself a few guitar chords and began performing in local nightclubs. In 1969, he moved to Nashville, but this was short lived, and in 1971 he moved again, this time to Alaska, where he appeared at the clubs in Anchorage. Upon his eventual return to Nashville, Mel sang on demos and wrote songs for other artists; Conway Twitty and Kenny Rogers were among those who recorded his material. In 1976, he signed to Capitol Records. Five years later, Mel had his first Top Ten hit, a song written by Bob McDill, ‘Louisiana Saturday Night’. Subsequent hits followed, including ‘Stand Up’, and ‘Baby’s Got Her Blue Jeans On’, a song which reached Number 1 in 1984. Mel McDaniel was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 1986, at the age of 44.

A serious accident, in 1996, resulted in him being unable to tour anymore, but he still continued to perform and record, and in 2006, he released the album, ‘Reloaded’. Further health problems ensued, and he completed what was to be his final album, ‘The Last Ride’, on February 18, 2011, one day before being admitted to hospital with lung cancer. Tragically, Mel McDaniel succumbed to the disease and passed away March 31 of that same year. Creative and Dreams Music Network, LLC will issue ‘The Last Ride’ as part of its Legend Series – a fitting tribute to an artist, when confronted by life’s hurdles, jumped right back in the saddle and continued on, making the music that he loved.

LANDSTROM  What We Saw (A)
Behind the Landstrom moniker we find the married couple Göran Lindström and Carina Landin. A couple firmly rooted in the countryside of Jamtland, outside of Hammarstrand, but with the whole world as their source of inspiration. Naturally, the Northern/Norrland melancholy is here, even with a hint of folk music if you listen carefully. But also influences of rock, pop and Americana. A Swedish version of Cowboy Junkies or 16 Horsepower, maybe. That is if you want to simplify things. Landstrom is Landstrom and nothing else

TROUBADUO  Troubaduo (A)
In 2008 solo artists Bryson VanCleve and Jill Marie met while performing at The Room 5 Lounge in Los Angeles, California. The friendship quickly blossomed into a relationship, and they began writing and recording music together. Bryson, an L.A. transplant originally from Arkansas, and California native Jill Marie, decided to get married and leave the city for a life on the road. The two troubadours formed Troubaduo, and booked shows all over the United States. They lived on the road 2009-2011 where they completed seven U.S. tours.

In April 2011, they found out Jill was pregnant, but continued through two more tours. On the way home from their seventh tour, their son Jedidiah was born three weeks early and Bryson delivered him on the road, in their touring RV known as "The Sea Turtle". (On their son's birth certificate it literally states that Jedidiah was born in the "Sea Turtle RV").

After Jedidiah was born, Bryson and Jill settled down in central Arkansas. Several years passed, and they developed interest in vegetable farming as a possible means for income. They decided to move to Western Arkansas in 2016, where they helped start a family farm growing chemical free produce for a living. During their years of farming for a living they soon found out the meaning of hard work, and less than minimum wage pay. 60-80 hours a week of physical labor, eventually resulted in an irregular heartbeat for Bryson due to low potassium levels. The growing pains with extreme manual labor and numerous crop failures after crop failures resulted in motivation to do music for a living again. However, this time it would be different. The life lessons and experiences from hard work and country living, would result in seasoned songs that most people could appreciate and relate to.

In the Summer of 2018 Troubaduo set out to work on the release of their first country album, entitled "Songs of Hope". The sound compares to new country music artists such as Chris and Morganne Stapleton, to vintage artists like Johnny and June Carter Cash, Patsy Cline and Willie Nelson. Troubaduo continues to perform, write, record and share their music, as their songs keep to moving across the globe distributing a Message of Peace, Love and Hope.

CHRIS HILLMAN  Bidin´ my time (A)
Chris Hillman is the kind of free only earned by having nothing left to prove. “It was a passion,” Hillman says, reflecting on his early years with a guitar, mandolin, and bass. “I had this passion to embrace the music and learn it, never really thinking, ‘I’m going to be a huge star.’ I didn’t think that way at all.” At first, it’s tempting to dismiss the idea that the co-founder of Rock and Roll Hall of Famers the Byrds, as well as the Flying Burrito Brothers, Manassas, and Desert Rose Band, never longed for bright lights. But his confession actually hints at a deeper truth: Hillman didn’t dream of his name on a marquee because ultimately, he was meant for something far greater. Chris Hillman is more than a rock star. He is one of the architects of American music.

Hillman’s new album Bidin’ My Time puts that pedigree on ferocious display. Produced by Tom Petty and executive produced by Herb Pedersen, the project captures a rarity: an icon who has never sounded better, making music with old friends for the sheer love of it. “I did everything I felt was right in the moment,” Hillman says of the recording process, before adding with characteristic sincerity, “I did my very best. That’s all any of us can do.” Bidin’ My Time is an understated but undeniable masterpiece, relevant, layered, and bright. Folk, rock and roll, bluegrass, and the unmistakable country-rock Hillman helped pioneer come together seamlessly on songs written by Hillman and his peers in the 60s or in the last few years. Collaborators and admirers from Hillman’s storied career appear throughout the record, some as the album’s backing band, others in winking cameos. In addition to Petty, Bidin’ My Time features Hillman’s Byrds bandmates David Crosby and Roger McGuinn; the Heartbreakers’ Benmont Tench and Steve Ferrone; Desert Rose Band’s John Jorgenson and Pedersen; giants Jay Dee Maness and Mark Fain; the Shelters’ Josh Jové; and the Punch Brothers’ Gabe Witcher.

Petty’s debt to the Byrds is well documented, most of all by Petty himself––he penned the Byrds’ entry in Rolling Stones’ “100 Greatest Artists,” writing that the band is “immortal because they flew so high. For me, they're still way, way up there.” When he asked Pedersen to join him on a recent tour to sing background vocals, Pedersen called Hillman, his close friend for more than 50 years, from the road to check in. “I knew Tom, but I didn’t know him well,” says Hillman. “I didn’t think I’d make another record. I was done.” Petty and Pedersen had other plans. “Somehow the idea popped up between Tom and Herb: ‘Why don’t we produce Chris?’” Hillman says. “It just kind of fell in my lap.” Hillman recalls the conversation he finally had with Petty about producing the project in November of 2016. “I said, ‘Do you really want to do this?’ And he said, ‘Well, do you want me?’ I said, ‘Well, yeah, I’d love to have you. But do you really want to commit to something like this?’ He said, ‘Well, do you want me to?’ Just back and forth.” Hillman laughs, then adds, “I said, ‘Man, you haven’t even heard any of these songs I have laying around.’ He said, ‘Aw, I know you’ll have some good stuff.’ Whatever that means.”

The funny anecdote reveals a big piece of who Hillman is––the only one in the room who doesn’t think he’s a legend. “I can look back on my career and say, ‘Gee, I wish this had happened,’ or ‘I wish I’d had more confidence,’––I was such a shy guy in all those groups I was in,” he says. “I could have been a bigger ‘whatever.’” He pauses. “But does it really matter?” Hillman grew up in California in the 50s. After his sister––“the bohemian of the family”––came home from studying art at the University of Mexico and the University of Colorado with a stack of Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Lead Belly, and other records under her arm, 15-year-old Hillman became enamored with folk music. Then he heard old-time music and bluegrass, and his world shook. Head down, ears open, fingers suddenly itching inexplicably for a mandolin, a Southern California kid’s innocent obsession with Appalachian familial harmonies and strings would end up changing the course of music. Almost 60 years later, Bidin’ My Time brims with that storytelling and virtuosity Hillman first loved, then perfected. The album kicks off with a new recording of Pete Seeger’s and Welsh poet Idris Davies’ “The Bells of Rhymney,” which the Byrds recorded for their debut, Mr. Tambourine Man. It’s always been Hillman’s favorite song the band ever recorded. Crosby and Pedersen contribute otherworldly harmonies to the tune, which swells from stripped-down folk into a layered rock-and-roll cry. “I decided to cut it again because I wanted to sing with David and Herb, two great tenors,” Hillman says. “David just loves Herb’s singing, and at 75-years-old, David is still a powerful singer––one of the best I’ve ever worked with or been around.” Hillman is right to praise his friends, but his own voice is jaw-dropping. His vocals often sound downright dewy, like they belong to a fresh-faced kid who has been listening nonstop to his grandparents’ vinyl.

Another Byrds nod, “Here She Comes Again” was co-written by Hillman and McGuinn, and until now, had only been recorded on a live album in Australia. Hillman plays bass on the track––the instrument he originally played with the Byrds but hadn’t picked up in more than 30 years. The song’s lovesick narrator anticipates heartache with a knowing shrug, layered over crunchy electric guitars and B3 organ. “She Don’t Care About Time” was written by Byrds cofounder Gene Clark, who died in 1991. Hillman had always felt the song, which was the original b-side to “Turn! Turn! Turn!,” never quite got the attention it deserves. “Gene was such a great songwriter,” he says. Hillman also indulged in an exercise every songwriter craves: he reworked “Old John Robertson,” first featured on The Notorious Byrd Brothers in 1968, to write “New Old John Robertson.” An ambling story song about a kind old man who lived in Hillman’s tiny hometown, the tune revels in Hillman’s bluegrass roots. Covers of the Everly Brothers’ “Walk Right Back” and Petty’s “Wildflowers” feel both new and needed, while Hillman’s tender vocals and chirping mandolin on “When I Get a Little Money,” written by family friend Nathan Barrows, soar.

Hillman’s originals confirm what a fierce songwriter he remains. Front-porch jam session “Such is the World We Live In” wonders what Hillman’s great-grandfather would say about current events. The song epitomizes Hillman’s distinct ability to bemoan ills without abandoning hope. Album standout “Restless,” another self-penned original, saunters as Hillman delivers a muscly vocal performance. Honest but loving, “Given All That I Can See,” a favorite of Hillman’s he calls the record’s “sort-of gospel song,” is a timely call for mercy and grace in an era beleaguered by hate and fear. And just like that, Hillman––the attention-wary introvert and self-proclaimed “man of leisure”––emerges as a voice the world didn’t just miss, but needs. “There’s nothing I want,” he says with a smile. “I’ve had a great life. And it’s not over––we’re not done.”

JIMMIE DALE GILMORE  Come on back (A)
Jimmie Dale Gilmore's first two albums were high-spirited honky tonk sessions that owed more to the great Texas dance hall tradition than the Zen cowboy leanings of Gilmore's masterpiece, 1991's After Awhile. To many listeners it probably seemed that the latter album was a more personal and heartfelt project than his earlier sides -- but then again, maybe it wasn't. Come on Back, Gilmore's seventh solo album, is a set of covers very much in the spirit of his debut set, Fair and Square, but a reading of Gilmore's liner notes offers a wealth of perspective on what these songs mean to him. Come on Back was recorded in tribute to Jimmie Dale's late father, Brian Gilmore, an amateur guitar picker who, as his son puts it, "accorded one class of people an exalted level of esteem that bordered on reverence" -- musicians and songwriters. Brian Gilmore loved the great country songs of the 1940s and '50s, which Jimmie Dale describes as "simple, well-crafted, unpretentious little gems from a wonderfully creative period in American commercial music." And while Jimmie Dale Gilmore may not have written a note of music on Come on Back, his performances of these songs, which speak clearly of the complexities of life and love as expressed in simple but eloquent terms, never fail to hit the proper grace note. This disc's many lovely moments document not just how Gilmore's love for this music was passed on to him by his father, but how the lessons he learned from his family are reflected in the home truths of these tunes. None of this is to suggest that Come on Back is a dark, or morbid record; the joy in this music is palpable, Gilmore is in superb voice on these sessions, and Joe Ely's production is as fine as it is unobtrusive. Though he's a gifted songwriter, Gilmore has always been a fine interpretive singer as well, and the full depth of his vocal talent is on display on Come on Back -- without reading his deeply moving liner notes, this sounds like an excellent collection of classic country and folk standards. Listen again after reading his essay, and you hear a tribute to a life well lived, and the many ways his father's life shaped his own. Come on Back is a quietly extraordinary album, and Gilmore's finest work since After Awhile.

ASHLEY McBRYDE  (Album)
Raw talent combined with a whiskey washed sense of humor has been used to describe singer-songwriter Ashley McBryde. Mentor and famed co-writer, Lisa Carver (Reba McEntire, Willie Nelson), described her as a “writer’s writer.” Put her on a stage and you will see and hear that she is the nicest bad girl you’ve ever met. Set to release in June, Ashley is currently finishing up her latest album in Nashville at Hot Haus Studio with producer Mike Holmes. As the writer or co-writer of every song on the album, this work shows you the lyrical narrative Ashley is able to weave together that can make you wish longingly for an old flame or stomp your boot on the barroom floor. The 11-song Americana -Country album was performed by seasoned veterans such as drummer Ed Greene (The Temptations, B.B. King), bassist Bob Marinelli (Larry Gatlin), and guitarist Lauren Ellis (Rita Coolidge, Nell Carter). Tracks like “Marlboro Man” and “Little Tragedy” guide you through heartache and loss, while “Holy Water” and “Break It Fast” show you her naughty, playful side. Ashley says, “This CD is a collection of loose ends and lullabies. Each tune is a tiny little confession. Call it an occupational hazard…My dirty laundry is sometimes your entertainment and sometimes yours is mine.”

Ashley released her self-titled debut album in January 2006. This heart-wrenching album displays simple and honest lyrics that run the gamut of emotions. Ashley describes her album as “one of the ones you can turn to when you’re hurting. Use the songs to get through a rough patch, to face one ahead, or celebrate one you’ve just come through.” Her CD features her playing the acoustic guitar and lyrics that paint a picture way beyond her years. As the reigning Tennessee state champion of the Colgate Country Showdown for 2009 and 2010, Ashley’s list of accomplishments speaks for itself. In 2010, her band was named the best band in Southern Tennessee at the Battle of the Bands in Lewisburg, TN. She has opened for acts such as Chris Cagle, Johnny Lee and the Urban Cowboys, and Point of Grace. She has hosted her own round at the prestigious Bluebird Cafe, and can be seen playing around Nashville at The Commodore Grille and Cadillac Ranch. Ashley is currently playing regular shows in Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi and Tennessee to promote the release of her upcoming album. Johnny Lee once told her, “Honey, I can tell you’re gonna do this the rest of your life. Now if you never make it big…That doesn’t matter. But if you quit before you die…It’ll matter the rest of your life. It’s in your blood.”

One of Ashley’s biggest influences, Carl Jackson, gave her some advice regarding her songwriting that she carries with her. He said, “You’re not the one writing the songs, the songs are writing you. You have no idea that you are writing the soundtrack to your life.” Learn more about Ashley McBryde and listen to her music at www.ashleymcbryde.com

JACK STILLWATER  Norwegicana (A)
På fredag 15 mars släpper norska Jack Stillwater sitt fjärde album «Norwegicana», med "multikonstnären" Bendik Brænne som producent, mixat av Marcus Forsgren och mastrat av George Tanderø. «Norwegicana» är inspelad i Studio Paradiso i Oslo hösten 2018.

Med «Norwegicana» följer Jack Stillwater upp hyllade "The Farmer Trilogy" (2016). Ett album som gjorde det möjligt för bandet att turnera över hela Norge med 50 konserter från Kristiansand till Hammerfest. Albumet hamnade också i toppen av musikbloggen Dust of Daylights lista över de bästa plattorna 2016 och stora tidningen Dagbladet placerade "The Farmer Trilogy" på tredje plats.

På «Norwegicana» målar Jack Stillwater med bredare pensel än tidigare och de använder också mer färger. Med god hjälp av producent Bendik Brænne har de öppnat nya dörrar och det musikaliska uttrycket har utvidgats. Referenspunkter är Roy Orbison, John Moreland, Chris Isaak och faktisk lite Beach Boys. Men väl förankrade i Terje Espenes röst och låtskriveri, kommer gamla lyssnare att känna igen Jack Stillwaters signatur. Övriga medlemmar i Jack Stillwater är Arne Harald Foss (trummor och kör), Odd Inge Rand (bas) och Morten Huseby (gitarrer och kör).

HEAVENS WINGS  Spread your wings (S)
The singer of the song is "Kathi Loizenbauer". A former music student of Charly Mo. The song was produced together with Pierre Gasser Music and Publishing house. In memory of my nephew Christian Denk nickname"Tschisi". The bravest fighter under the sun I will wear forever in my heart. He lost his fight at age 30 due to cancer. Tschisi is only a blink of an eye away from us, in a dimension that unfortunately is still closed. But there are moments when he is close to me "us" where I can feel his presence. I (Charly Mo) initiated this song to be produced for my nephew (little brother).

Låten heter i original Country Boy, Country Girl som blivit "Längtan till landet" på Svenska i en översättning av Peter Russberg. Sången är producerad och lagd i Sverige av Marcus Persson.

ERIKA JONSSON  Give it a shot (S)
ERIKA JONSSON har streamat över elva (11) miljoner ggr på Spotify, brinner för countryn och sin musik! Nu släpper hon nya singeln ”Give It A Shot” på sin egna label, åker på Sverige och Norge turné med start fredag 15/3 och Nashville besök i maj!

Erika började skriva låtar redan som 12 åring, fastande för country på lokalpuben där hon fick dispens att komma in trots sin unga ålder. Varje onsdag var hon där och sjöng karaoke. Det var där allt startade en gång i tiden.

Riktig fart som artist tog det 2014 då hon fick ”hiten” med sången om Värmland som klev direkt in i svenska och norska folksjälar och som idag har streamats över 5 miljoner ggr. Efter det, släppte hon två album på skivbolaget Ninetone, där hon blandar sina låtar på svenska och engelska. Kommande albumet släpper Erika på egen label i september 2019 och helt på engelska.

Erika brinner för allas lika värde. Hon jobbade som personlig assistent i 6 år till en kille hon fick evig vänskap med. Gjorde en låt tillsammans honom som de la upp på Facebook. Den spreds som en löpeld med över 2 miljoner tittare. Erika är också djur och naturvän och har varit aktiv i olika föreningar t.ex. djurens rätt och naturskyddsföreningen och är till viss del det fortfarande, när hon hinner. Förutom turnéer och skivinspelningar har Erika och hennes fästmö precis fått en liten flicka tillsammans, som tar upp en hel del tid för dem båda.

Erika säger: ”Målet med musiken är att få Sverige att förstå storheten med country. Bli ansiktet och rösten utåt som satte Sverige på country-kartan, samt vara en positiv fläkt i mina fans liv, vara ett exempel att man verkligen kan lyckas bara man har viljan och tron på sig själv. (Kanske inte skulle erkänna detta högt men jag skulle nog säga att jag drömmer om att bli en folkkär artist) Nashville betyder mycket för mig, därifrån all inspiration kommer. Drömmen görs verkligen till verklighet nu när vi ska dit och spela i maj. Mitt sound jag har nu de senaste singlarna och albumet, kommer släppas kommer därifrån. Det är stort!”

JAMES WORSHAM  Maybe they were right (S)
Hey friend, I released my brand new single last week called "Maybe They Were Right", and the response has been amazing! I wrote the song a few months back when I was reflecting on my life; both where I've been, where I am, and where I'm headed. It's easy to second guess ourselves in hindsight, and we're probably always going to have things we wish we could do over in life. This song is about learning to trust yourself, and learning how to be content with it all; the good, the bad, and the not-yet-decided. There will always be voices around you telling you what you should or shouldn't do, but ultimately, the only person that gets to decide is you. If you want to listen to "Maybe They Were Right", it's available now on all the major streaming services

  24. RON BUCKPITT: Wandering Jew
    “Soon after being shown three chords on a guitar, under a Gwydir River Bridge (3am drunk singalong) I started writing songs. Just love it. I’m still just a plunket but I know no better thrill than the sound of my songs lifted to a higher level by incredibly talented musos at wonderful recording studios. A good mate, business client and retired “country” disc jockey by the name of Ronnie Kelly said to me, “Ron, you need to write a song about a wool barge”. I said, “What’s a wool barge”? Ronnie (from the Gnenbah /Muriwari tribes) advised me he and his friends would swim in the Darling River at Brewarrina as kids. “The Wandering Jew” wool barge (built in 1865) had been moored there but had sunk to the bottom and was in a state of decay. The kids would dive into the river to recover souvenirs, old knives, forks and remnants of the old paddle wheel wool barge. I researched a lot and the rest was hypothesis and imagination. The song paints the picture.” -Ron Buckpitt

KRISTINA MURRAY  Southern Ambrosia (EP)
Georgia-bred, Nashville-based songwriter Kristina Murray plays Americana and country music rooted and steeped in troubadour storytelling, southern-rock grit and the footsteps of country queens of yesteryear. Kristina’s songwriting springs from a deep and personal desire to share her truth, her opinions and convictions, and the simple joys and tragedies of life. Her songs adhere to the adage “write what you know,” and her delivery is as fluid, rhythmic, and steady as her right hand on her 1963 J-45, a beloved companion whom she endearingly calls Lil’ Sister in a nod to an early musical hero, one Elvis Aaron Presley.

Kristina currently lives in Nashville, where she is active in the underground independent country and Americana music scene that pays homage to the jangle of an acoustic guitar, the sting of a Telecaster, tight harmonies and the walking bassline—the sweat and grime and heartache of country legends—rather than, say, the synth and drum machine of contemporary pop country. One listen and you’ll believe every word that drips from her honky-tonk hewn, yet honeyed vocal style.

Released on her own label, Loud Magnolia Records, her second album, ‘Southern Ambrosia’ conveys a fierce and witty perspective on southernisms, hard truths, heartbreak, and the eternal magical mystery and saving grace of melody, music and song

KEITH MOULAND  Sad to be hopelessly in love (A)
First and foremost I am a Singer/songwriter, that's what I love the most. My songs are based in roots music which can be Americana, Old style Country, Folk/Blues, Rockabilly, to name a few, I've certainly had plenty of time to listen to a lot of different styles over the years. It all started for me with tuning in to the radio in Wiltshire, UK and really loving the Honky Tonk Country and Bluegrass that I heard when I was a kid. It's also easy for me to get into the romance of the Old West. This is really where my heart lies, although I have played various genres of music. I keep looking for the next!

GEORGE JONES  Why Why Why (A)
George Jones greatest successes lay ahead of him when he performed the tracks in this collection – his first number one was just around the corner – and his voice would mature to almost unimagined depth, but there remains something special about his early years, a yet unjaded passion and an unadulterated authenticity that would arguably disappear in the coming years. Even as his voice matured and his abilities deepened, something else was lost which many find in vintage recordings like these.

This rare glimpse of George Jones at his early peak serves as something of a companion to BEAR FAMILY's box set chronicling the complete recordings of Jones STARDAY-MERCURY years, from 1954-61. The ten live tracks on this LP straddle the 1956-57 period when Jones, having broken through on STARDAY, switched to major label MERCURY via a deal between the two labels that had largely been made possible by Jones' success on STARDAY. It captures him not only singing his earliest hits, but also singing songs of his contemporaries, in wonderful fidelity, including Ernest Tubb's classic Let's Say Goodbye Like We Said Hello that he never recorded commercially.

George Glenn Jones (September 12, 1931 – April 26, 2013) was an American musician, singer and songwriter. He achieved international fame for his long list of hit records, including his best known song "He Stopped Loving Her Today", as well as his distinctive voice and phrasing. For the last 20 years of his life, Jones was frequently referred to as the greatest living country singer. Country music scholar Bill C. Malone writes, "For the two or three minutes consumed by a song, Jones immerses himself so completely in its lyrics, and in the mood it conveys, that the listener can scarcely avoid becoming similarly involved." Waylon Jennings expressed a similar opinion in his song "It's Alright": "If we all could sound like we wanted to, we'd all sound like George Jones." The shape of his nose and facial features earned Jones the nickname "The Possum."

Born in Texas, Jones first heard country music when he was seven and was given a guitar at the age of nine. He married his first wife, Dorothy Bonvillion, in 1950, and was divorced in 1951. He served in the United States Marine Corps and was discharged in 1953. He married Shirley Ann Corley in 1954. In 1959, Jones released a cover version of "White Lightning" by J. P. Richardson, which launched his career as a singer. His second marriage ended in divorce in 1968; he married fellow country music singer Tammy Wynette a year later. Many years of alcoholism caused his health to deteriorate severely and led to his missing many performances, earning him the nickname "No Show Jones." After his divorce from Wynette in 1975, Jones married his fourth wife, Nancy Sepulvado, in 1983 and became mostly sober. Jones died in 2013, aged 81, from hypoxic respiratory failure. During his career, Jones had more than 150 hits, both as a solo artist and in duets with other artists. (source: wikipedia)

STEVE EARLE & THE DUKES  Guy (Singles Pack)
  1. Dublin blues
  2. L.A. Freeway

Steve Earle was nineteen and had just hitchhiked from San Antonio to Nashville in 1974. Back then if you wanted to be where the best songwriters were you had to be in there. Guy Clark had moved to Nashville and if you were from Texas, Guy Clark was king. A few years later, Steve would be playing bass guitar in Guy's band and flying high on what would become an indelible friendship of like-minded musicians who bonded in a kinship of stories told through song.

Flash forward more than forty years to May 2016. Guy Clark had just succumbed to cancer after a long battle with lymphoma. Guy had lived with his disease and had continued to write songs until the day he died. He also painted, built instruments and owned a guitar shop in the Bay Area. According to Earle, “You hung around with him [Guy] and knew why they call what artists do disciplines. Because he was disciplined.”

The same can be said of Earle. In the fall of 2018, Steve and The Dukes went into House Of Blues studio in Nashville and recorded GUY in six days. “I wanted it to sound live...When you’ve got a catalog like Guy’s and you’re only doing sixteen tracks, you know each one is going to be strong.”

Earle and his current, perhaps best-ever Dukes lineup, take on these songs with a spirit of reverent glee and invention. The tunes are all over the place and so is the band, offering max energy on such disparate entries as the bluegrass rave-up “Sis Draper” and the talking blues memoir of “Texas 1947.” Earle’s raw vocal on the sweet, sad “That Old Time Feeling” is heartbreaking, sounding close enough to the grave as to be doing a duet with his late friend and mentor.

You can hear little hints of where Earle came from. The stark “Randall Knife” has the line “a better blade that was ever made was probably forged in Hell,” which wouldn’t be out of place in a Steve Earle original. Also hard to beat is “The Last Gunfighter,” a sardonic western saga to which Earle offers a bravura reading of the chorus: “the smell of the black powder smoke and the stand in the street at the turn of joke.”

But in the end GUY leads the listener back to its beginning, namely Guy Clark, which is what any good “tribute” should do. GUY is a saga of friendship, its ups and downs, what endures. We are lucky that Earle remembers and honors these things, because like old friends, GUY is a diamond

ROY COST  The real you (S)
Hello Mr. Ohlzon, I am Roy Cost from Conway, Arkansas USA. I hope you are doing great today over there in Sweden. I don't know many people in your country except I do know Mr. Gunnar Almqvist, a singer who once recorded one of my songs. I want to thank you for your show and your support of the independents. I am a former DJ so I know of your dedication to your show, radio station, fans and artists.

"The Real You" as far as plays go is my most played song in the modern CD age because it was a double # 1 on Soundclick back a few years. I was very fortunate that it was # 1 on Soundclick's "Big Country Chart" of over 22,000 songs and at the same time a # 1 on their "Country General Chart" of over 2,000 songs.

the late Floyd Cramer and I were great friends, Floyd is probably the best country music piano player to ever walk this earth. We were like family and he helped me out a lot with my music in my earlier years. If you like Floyd Cramer I invite you to google "Forever" by The Little Dippers or Floyd's very pretty instrumental of Rod Stewart's great song, "Have I Told You Lately) not to be confused with another Floyd Cramer recording of the old traditional song, Have I Told You Lately That I Love You and then there is his million seller "Last Date".

I started my recording career with America's The Shadows in 1959 and I have been through several music revolutions & trends such as the late fifties, early 60s with the English coming to visit us, the soul era, acid rock, and others but nothing compares to this revolution we are in today...It is the independents who are finally getting heard on radio and thanks to you and the other hard working DJs. Best Wishes, Roy Cost... "A member of the Rockabilly Hall Of Fame"

TOMMY BOTZ  Teddy bear (S)
My name is Tommy Botz. I've been living in a halfway house in Cleveland,Ohio for the past 14 1/2 yrs.I crawled through the doors on May 3rd 2004 of The Ed Keating Center a homeless drunk with nowhere to go and noone wanted me..I met a kind old man Jack Mulhall who told me that if I followed some direction I would never have to live like that anymore. I wasn't always a homeless drunk. I had dreams and goals like every young man has. I always loved country and gospel music.

This led to me being the lead singer in 2 bands,the Chevells and the Caesars 5. We won the battle of the bands out of 50 bands and a recording contract with RCA records but our guitar player quit and the contract fell through. As the years passed my drinking got worse and worse and soon jails and penitentaries became a way of life. I tried to sober up in aa for over 30yrs. But soon would pick up again and the nightmare got worse, not to mention those poor innocent victims I dragged down that road with me.

People say they been to hell and back. I reached the gates of hell and threw my loved ones in. After a couple of broken marriages,lost jobs,no car, no licence. I was unemployable and was living to drink and drinking to live. My sponser told me about The Ed Keating Center.after several years sober and working , I had saved up some money and was wondering if i should move out or go for my dream. Which was to record some of the over 200+ song i had written over the years.

One night while I was praying I heard in my heart, go for you dream and I will put someone in your life who believes in your music. I contacted Michael Seifert who owned ant up studios. I told him I wanted to record some song but that I write the lyrics and hear the music in my head. So we sat down at the piano and got 6 songs done. Michael helped me get the musicians and vocalists. I dedicated my cd called family and friends, to my loving mother and father. They put their wedding picture from Yugoslavia on the front.With a picture of The Ed Keating center on the back . With pictures of some family anf friends.

GOD can do more than I could ever think or imagine and before Jack passed away, he asked me to be the director of the Ed Keating Center East. I've been trying to help drunks and addicts ever since with help from so many people I wrote my song Teddy Bear for an inmate and good friend when I was locked up in the old ohio penitentary.He knew that I wrote songs and came to my cell in tears one night because he just found out that his little girl had passed away. His wife was losing her mind questioning her faith and he asked if i could write something for his daughters memory.

That night i wrote Teddy Bear. I have never had any children and for me to write about a teddy bear,raggedy ann,peter pan a barbie doll lunch box for school. Well Ibelieve what Hank Williams Sr said years ago "I hold the pen and GOD writes the words" so I just keep holding the pen I know this is long but it's a small portion thats from my heart
