RICHIE ALLBRIGHT: Reefer Road "Reefer Road" is the first single from my upcoming "Back To Nashville"
EP produced by Aaron Rodgers at Nashville Recording Studio and scheduled for full release in September 2019. After recording my "Poets, Prophets, Heroes & Friends" album with Ted Russell Kamp out in L.A. in 2016, which included the Billy Don Burns written radio single "Old Country Song", I met Aaron Rodgers in Nashville in 2018. Aaron was producing Billy Don at the time. I gave him a copy of that 2016 record and after listening to it he immediately called me and told me that he wanted to produce my next project at his studio. An offer that I jumped on quickly of course!! We started working on it while I was out on tour in January 2019. And after 7 months and a few stops in Nashville while touring, here we are with the New "Back To Nashville" EP 11 years and 4 albums after I left Nashville to move home to Texas in 2008. I'm looking forward to sharing the rest of it with you soon!! Thanks for your support. R.A. ISRC: ushm81945635

The song delivers wisdom from someone who?s seen it all, to those who sit at the barstool night after night in the beer joints, the dive bars and the honky- tonks.

JAMIE TALBERT & THE BAND OF DEMONS: All I know Jamie Talbert & The Band of Demons are known for a raising a few eyebrows -- not only with their name, but with their music. As edgy and innovative as their namesake song (Charlie Daniels? ?The Devil Went Down to Georgia?), this Jam Band influenced group feels the lyric, ?and a band of demons joined in, and it sounded something like this,? sums up their style perfectly. There are no starched shirts, big hats, or cowboy boots, these boys like to have FUN, and it SHOWS! As all of this is packed into devilish antics that are infectious, it becomes something everyone wants to be a part of.
?It?s always fun when we hear that we were not what someone expected,? said Talbert. ?We love to take our listeners through a musical journey and we play music that we love. In addition to our own songs, when we take the stage we do mash-ups with songs of various genres since our sphere of influences is so different. ISRC: QZ6UB1700002, from the Album: DO IT
CHRIS MOREAU: Goin´ to Texas What Texas asks for, Texas gets! Do you miss that good ol? 80s/90s Texas Country sound?

It?s Real and it?s Country!
I?m a US Navy Aircrew, Combat Decorated Veteran with a style groomed from playing in the dance halls of Southwest Louisiana and East Texas.
?Goin? to Texas was written by Kirk Roth, Clinton Gregory, and Jamie Creasy, with a powerhouse group of musicians playing on this recording. Again, real music, real musicians, with lyrics we can relate to! The story is in the words of the song!

PETER COAD (OAM): Lonely outback moon Peter Coad (OAM) is a veteran story teller song writer and his story of the ‘Lonely Outback Moon’ paints a true picture of drought time in the Australian outback. A land where dust storms darken the sun, and at night the moon shines thru a red haze. A land where the wind builds sand hills today and relocates them tomorrow. In a land where people, animals and wild life hang on and coexist with the drought and survival because they know that rain will come one day, someday.
This is the latest radio single from Peter's forthcoming album set to be released in mid October
JAMES STEWART KEENE featuring THE BUSHWACKERS: Stroke of the Government´s pen JAMES STEWART KEENE returns to radio with an exciting and fresh collaboration with Australian music legends THE BUSHWACKERS.
Stroke of the Governments’ Pen is the first song written for James’ SHERBROOKE DOWN project, a period feature drama film about two intertwining Australian stories set in rural Australia in 1903.
Co-written with ALLAN CASWELL, the track is inspired by the true story of James’ great, great grandparents. The song tells the tale on how they and their neighbours where forced off their farms at Sherbrooke NSW in 1903 to make way for the Cataract Dam on the Illawarra plateau.
Produced by ROGER CORBETT and featuring a duet with DOBE NEWTON, as well as The Bushwackers’ traditional country folk sounds, the song is one of many on its way that will eventually find its way on the Sherbrooke Down movie soundtrack
GREG CHAMPION: Dancing on the darling The Darling River has not flowed for some time. Australia’s second largest river (by most measurement) is now just a series of waterholes. Drought – but also water allocation for farming –are the reasons. It’s a situation we Aussies just cannot allow to happen.
In May of this year the town of Menindee staged the Dancing On The Darling Festival. Its mission was to draw attention to the plight of their sacred river. A number of artists came to perform, among them Greg Champion, who thought the name of the festival could be turned into song.
Champs finished off Dancing On The Darling on the journey to Menindee via Mildura and Pooncarie, and aired it first for the locals that weekend. Top Broken Hill indigenous singer Nyirey Kickett was also performing that weekend, and joined Greg on stage for the new song. Now Dancing On The Darling is ready for release, on Roody Doody Records. Recorded in Montmorency, suburban Melbourne.
Which takes us back to the mission of Dancing On The Darling: The Darling River is entirely too vital to be allowed to die. It’s too vital to the many communities for whom The Darling is lifeblood: Brewarrina, Bourke, Wilcannia, Menindee, Pooncarie and others. And, its survival is equally critical to Australians everywhere – not just to those living along it. It’s our heritage – and it has to be there for future generations.
Stand on the banks of the mighty Darling and admire the grandeur of massive red gums, and pelicans standing on half-submerged logs. See where a paddle steamer has been abandoned in the middle of a dry river bed, having once run aground. Save The Darling.
JACK VILJOEN: Rain South African born and adopted Australian JACK VILJOEN is a singer and songwriter from Gladstone in Central Queensland and a winner of several Country Music Festivals and the senior male vocal winner of the Queensland Champion of Champions in 2011
He released his first album titled, “THE SONG YOU SING” in October 2017 featuring nine original songs and he is currently working on his second album due to be released later this year.
RAIN is more than a song... it is an appeal to all of us to support our farmers hanging on and battling through a devastating drought. It is a salute to people taking the initiative to help out, and it is a message to Aussie farmers to stay strong and never give up! ISRC # AUWNL1700001
TATE SHERIDAN: Angel man As part of the Australian music scene for many years Tate was awarded the 2014 ACT Critics Circle Artist of the year for his dedication to jazz and pop music.

JODIE CROSBY: Woman is the wind Fans have been asking for Jodie to release this song to radio for some time ….
The song is based on a poem written by Jon Wolfe and reworked by Jodie, Jon and fellow-Tamworth singer/songwriter, Phil Hungerford, into this beautiful calling card for women the world over.
Partly inspired by a comment from Indigenous singer songwriter Kev Carmody who once autographed a copy of his debut album Pillars Of Society to Jon with the words “Listen to the wind”, it captures the essence of the female mystique – one can never always guess where she’s coming from or going to – but there is always strength, love, and along with unbridled passion, she is sure to make you heed the warnings, nurture your soul and keep you guessing what she’s going to do next
JUSTIN LANDERS: A campfire waltz A CAMPFIRE WALTZ is the first single lifted from Justin’s upcoming album “FREE TIME AND MONEY” which is currently a work in progress and is being produced and recorded with the tremendously talented Simon Johnson of Hillbilly Hut Records. The album is expected to be released early 2020.
A CAMPFIRE WALTZ tells a story about a couple who go camping to get away from the stresses of the city and everyday life, to rekindle the flame of their love. To get back to the basics where their relationship was first established.
When asked about where the inspiration for A CAMPFIRE WALTZ came from, Justin said “It seems that there are very few waltz songs being produced in recent times and I just wanted to have a go at writing a waltz to diversify my skills and try something a little different to what I have been writing in recent times. That and the fact that my wife and I haven’t been camping in a long while is what inspired me to write this song”. He laughs.
SGELLY JONES BAND: The Outback THE OUTBACK presents something a little different from husband and wife duo the SHELLY JONES BAND and is their tribute to the Australian Outback. Inspired by their many road trips inland, Shelly and Lester wanted to capture the magic of the mystical Outback they have fallen in love with. Australia is one of the most beautiful and unique countries in the world with such a diverse array of landscapes. Most Aussies are familiar with our beautiful coastlines and rainforests, but many haven’t experienced the Australia’s remote interior. More people should leave their beach towels at home and venture inland to immerse themselves in the truly unique and mystical Australian Outback.
It has been an amazing year so far for the SHELLY JONES BAND with 2 single releases debuting consecutively at #1 on the Country Songs Top 40 Australian Airplay Chart.
THE OUTBACK single is off the album, HIGHWAYS, which is available on all digital platforms or via the official Shelly Jones Band website:

WATLING & BATES: Ciderville CIDERVILLE, by WATLING & BATES, is a song of change, of finding a place to rest and gather strength before moving on. An invisible crossroad, far from the busy highway, where no one finds you unless you want to be found.
KYM WATLING backs an impassioned vocal with a sparkling country rhythm on the acoustic guitar while producer THOR PHILLIPS pits desolation against redemption on the sharp steel of his Dobro. CIDERVILLE also features the resonant tones of JOHN WILLSTEED (GoBetweens, Disgraceland, Halfway) on bass.

MICHELLE WALKER: Trying to be me Being a woman is tough. We live in a fast paced, challenging era while balancing our family, work and lifestyle choices. We have never been more connected than now with modern day technology ever changing and evolving. The pressure we put on ourselves to conform with what social media depicts we should look, sound and act like is a great load to bear.
What example are we setting for our daughters, friends and family? How do we get back to being comfortable in our own skin? MICHELLE WALKER reflects upon these questions in her new single, ‘TRYING TO BE ME’.
Michelle’s latest album, ‘BACKBONE’ is produced by LINDSAY WADDINGTON from KROSS KUT RECORDS. The music video for ‘TRYING TO BE ME’ features Michelle’s own twin daughters ANNALISE and BRIANNA, and is directed and shot by ROSS WOOD of 171 Films. ISRC: AUZY41800025

He started his musical career with guitar lessons at the mere age of seven. Later on picked up playing piano. Rob’s piano playing took him to be the Musical Director for Tamworth on Parade in the 1990s and saw him behind the grand at the Sydney Opera House for three consecutive years.

BECKY DENTON: Take me back to Tybee “Tybee Island is a tiny, magical place off the coast of Savannah, Georgia. Will introduced it to me a couple of years ago, and I immediately fell in love. The setting is so tranquil: tall sea oats sway in the breeze, insisting that you forget your troubles for a while and relax. The lights from local fishing boats and nearby Hilton Head and Daufuskie Islands dot the horizon at night”.
“From the best ice cream in the world at The Sugar Shack, to my husband’s favorite breakfast at Sunrise café (try the Hashbrown Deluxe), Tybee Island is a place you come back to again and again, whether you’re really there or not” ISRC: QZ28H1700004
STEVE SPARROW: Paint your cactus green Accomplished singer, song writer STEVE SPARROW is pleased to announce the release of the fourth single from his album, ‘PAINT YOUR CACTUS GREEN’. This album captures Steve’s work at its best.
Showcasing his musicianship and strong songwriting style, ‘PAINT YOUR CACTUS GREEN’ talks about those special moments in life that are so much a part of raising children. The song was written after Steve and his then 6year old son, Craig, were watching a kid’s craft making show on TV, and this day they were talking about making a cactus from paper and plastic. The last thing the show host said in his wonderfully strong London Cockney accent was, “and then you can paint your cactus green”. This album was produced by Steve at Sparrow Sound Studio.
STEVE DEAL: Whiskey kisses A few years ago former bus driver, STEVE DEAL, caught the imagination of many Aussies including Alan Jones, Karl Stefanovic, Triple M’s grill team and the Daily Telegraph when his ‘FOUR RIVERS’ album took the number 1 spot from Keith Urban and Taylor Swift launching him into the spotlight, something he was never looking for.
Steve is one of those guys who loves writing and making music but hates the attention which seems like a contradiction for someone trying to etch out a living in the music industry. This contradiction has found Steve rejecting offers to appear on shows like The Voice and has found him happily behind the scenes producing albums for other artists - hence the long wait between ‘FOUR RIVERS’ and his fun, catchy and addictive new single, ‘WHISKEY KISSES’, which is the first from an upcoming EP.
Every songwriter needs a muse, the inspiration for ‘WHISKEY KISSES’ came after a tough night in the recording studio when Steve’s vocal coach and wife, Bek, had to pull a great vocal performance out of him using whatever was available at the time…a bottle of cheap whiskey to warm up his vocals and a few long kisses…it didn’t take long to write ‘WHISKEY KISSES’ after that experience. Enjoy! AUG7G1900035
JACK VILJOEN: My friend the fiddler “Stu Watson, who played fiddle for Slim Dusty and the Bullamakanka Band, is a mate of mine and we were doing a gig one night and he told of all the people he made music with and although some of them passed on when he hears the music it's like they're still there. He also mentioned that how he got to know his fellow musos so well he could read their mood by the way they play. I was intrigued by his story and that is how ‘MY FRIEND THE FIDDLER’ came to be”.

COL THOMPSON: Hunter Valley moon ‘HUNTER VALLEY MOON’ is the very first single to be lifted from GULLY RAKER and should give the the album the kickstart it requires. “It’s been 11 yrs since l released a new album, and this one is well overdue. I sifted through 260 of my originals before l thinned it down to the 20 songs which l recorded for the album. It was a big project but, l humbly state, l am happy to put my name to the album. I am gearing up for a bit of a burst to further promote my music and I am available for interviews and live performances” AUEIY1900025

SHERENE ft JON ABOI want my money back (S) ‘I want my money back’ is the first release from the soon to be released EP Treehouse Music. It features a vocal duet by Sherene and fellow Asquith sessions artist Jon Abo and is available on all streaming platforms. I want my money back ‘Treehouse Music’ has been a labour of love that began when Kayellen Bee, founding member of iconic 80’s band GANGgajang was assembling songs she had written. Kay is the wife of another GANGgajang member and producer Graham“Buzz”Bidstrup and they have been performing in Ukulele quartet ‘Strumnhum’ with singer Sherene and her partner Tom for the past 5 years. During rehearsals for the Uke band Sherene sang on the demo recordings Buzz was producing for the collection of songs that now make up Treehouse Music.
When Buzz played the demo recordings to his long time friend, ARIA winning producer David Nicholas, he asked Buzz if he could be involved in the process of turning the demos into finished recordings. They began working together in Buzz’s studio and the resulting finished tracks feature three members of ‘The Tracking Crew’ with Buzz on drums, James Gillard bass and Glen Hannah acoustic and electric guitars.
Kay’s songs sound like they were written specifically for Sherene, her pure voice shining above well crafted backing tracks and soundscapes sensitively produced by David Nicholas and Buzz Bidstrup. The last piece of the puzzle was a deal between Sebastian Chase of MGM distribution, Buzz and David. SBD music has released several recordings of ‘The Asquith sessions’ featuring The Tracking Crew and Sherene as the featured vocalist.

Började 2015 att arbeta på en comeback men har numera lagt trubadurgenren bakom sig och återgått till countrymusiken vilken han spelade innan trubadurandet drog igång. Sedan 2017 spelar han kontinuerligt i mindre omfattning på mindre ställen i framför allt Göteborgsområdet.
Tom har även under sin karriär spelat live i USA och Thailand.
Här är den första singeln ”A Fool In Love” från hans kommande fjärde studioalbum ”Haggard, Jones and Me”. Singeln släpps 12 augusti och albumet ges ut i oktober.
Under våren 2019 låg en låt ”(The Healing Isn't There) At Closing Time” från Toms föregående album maximala 10 veckor på Svenska Närradiolistan varav 3 veckor på förstaplatsen
THE WAYMASTERSThe great I am (S) America’s Favorite! For the third consecutive year, gospel music fans voted the Waymasters America’s “Favorite Country Gospel Group” at the 2019 Gospel Music Fan Awards. The group also brought home the awards for “Favorite Album” and “Favorite Musician.”
STEFAN NYKVISTSorgernas Allé (S) Många är det som väntat på ny musik från Stefan Nykvist och nu är det dags!
Låten Sorgernas Allé är första singeln från det kommande albumet som i skrivande stund inte fått något namn.
Stefan har gjort det mesta som artist, Vunnit Dansbandskampen, 2:a i körslaget, Allsång på Skansen, Så ska det låta, Fångarna på fortet, Bingolotto mm.
De senaste 6 åren har han dessutom spelat ”Skinnar Mäster” i Skinnarspelet i Malung.
När Stefan under 2013 meddelade att han skulle lämna Larz-Kristerz slog det ner som en bomb och i stort sett varenda tidning i landet hade det som en stor nyhet.
Efter detta har han ständigt fått frågan från sina fans ”när får vi höra ny musik ifrån dig?”
Och nu är det så dags, första låten ut heter Sorgernas Allé, skriven av Hans Adeström från Enviken som också bidrar med flera alster till det kommande albumet.
Hans lyrik var något som Stefan genast tog till sitt hjärta då den kraftigt påminner om just den epok som han älskar så mycket.
En låt som Stefans fans garanterat kommer att ta till sina hjärtan

LARISSA TORMEYInner angel (S) Country/gospel/crossover artist LARISSA TORMEY is all set to thrill fans with the upcoming release of her acoustic EP which will feature intimate cover versions of hits from Lady Gaga, Blur, Sade, and Roberta Flack, as well as the title track, Larissa's own composition, the gorgeous INNER ANGEL.
The EP was released recently on all major digital platforms, and certainly showcases the Kilbeggan based vocalist's adventurous side, with a selection of songs few would have expected. But for Larissa, great songs are great songs, and that fact more than anything else is what guided her choice.
"I've been planning to do an acoustic collection for a long time, and I think the songs on Inner Angel - which are all so beautifully written, and have been performed so beautifully by the original artists - they all compliment simple, acoustic
arrangements. They're all famous love songs, and all songs that I absolutely love myself. People often talk about something being a labour of love, well that's exactly what recording this EP was for me. I loved every moment of the whole process, and I
can't wait for fans to hear these songs and see what they think. Love songs, regardless of whatever genre they originate from, always have a universal appeal and are able to reach hearts everywhere."
Larissa's skill as a songwriter is once again to the fore on the EP's title-track, Inner Angel. " This is a song that
means a lot to me, and one I've wanted to release for a while. But I wasn't sure where to fit it into everything else I was doing in my career. Now, though, on this EP, I think it's found its perfect home at last."

RILEY REDDING: Afraid of the dark Lindale, TX singer-songwriter Riley Redding has based his life on the ethic of hard work. His music career has been a clear illustration of what it means to be self-motivated and self-made. In an industry full of commonality, his music is a unique depiction of who he is and the experiences that made him. His current single ?Afraid of the Dark? is a prime example of this. Riley quotes, ?Folks want something real where vulnerability isn?t a fear. Now and then, a few lucky souls find what some spend a lifetime searching for. Even still, life comes knocking, gets damn hard, and puts folks to the test. Fathers are drawn from children, and wives from husbands. The strain becomes too real. Often times, it's careers that distract us from what matters. That?s where ?Afraid of the Dark? lies. It tells of the struggles endured by a traveling salesman and his family while he's on the road. We aren?t made to go through life alone. If you come across something raw, honest, and true, hold on to it."

DYLAN EARLSquirrel in the Garden (A) När East Nashville och Austin gentrifieras i rasande takt och blir för dyrt och för trångt att bo där för musiker, får man helt enkelt börja leta på annat håll. I Ozark-bergen i Arkansas finns en vital musikscen och i spetsen för den hittar man Dylan Earl, som nu ger ut sitt andra album. ”Squirrel in the Garden” släpps den 9 augusti av Rootsy Music i hela Europa och finns som LP, CD, download och stream.
På ”Squirrel in the Garden” får vi tio nya låtar, alla utom en skrivna av Dylan Earl. Och om man vill kalla det country eller americana är väl en smaksak och upp till var och en, men att det handlar om genuin amerikansk musik är bortom allt tvivel. Dylan inspireras av allt från traditionell country och sydstatsrock till hårdrock och under sina ändlösa turnéer i mellan-västern möter han sin publik på honkytonks och barer. Där testas och finslipas låtarna och där har Dylan Earl vuxit enormt som artist. Och inte minst som sångare.
Urvattningen av countryn med massproducerad ”bro-country” och pop-country är ett hot mot den amerikanska countryns själ och tradition, enligt Dylan Earl. Ur den aspekten är hela albumet en motståndsrörelse. Han vill ta tillbaka countryn men inte för att återskapa det gamla. Men vårda den, ge den nytt blod. Han må ha en stor Stetson-hatt och en tjusig mustasch och hans smäktande bariton kan lätt lura en att tro att det här är en supertraditonalist från den djupaste Södern. Men det här är musik som i högsta grad är relevant idag, 2019.
Dylan Earl föddes i Lake Charles, Louisiana. En tvättäkta Cajun i själ och hjärta och med sin mammas Texas-rötter, inbäddat i sitt DNA. Efter de två ödesdigra orkanerna Katrina och Rita tvingades Dylan och hans familj starta om på nytt, och numera är det The Ozark Mountains i Arkansas, som nu är hans hem.
Dylan Earl kommer att turnera i Europa i höst

TODD SPARKSSingle releases (EP) In the beginning: Family! My family! Some of the funniest people in the world! And great singers (some not so great singers, but it didn’t stop them – which means none of my people are bashful)! I grew up with laughter and music! My Dad could dead-pan a joke as well as anybody! Second was my Uncle Sam! Funny guys! My maternal Grandmother played the piano and sang to me when I was a kid and to this day I’ve never heard a better rendition of “St. Louis Blues” . Her brother, my great-uncle, Lynn Mullinax was a celebrated pianist in Manhattan for years. All my cousins on my Dad’s side had great voices! And dance, man we had great dancers! My brother and sister could have been pros! My favorite photograph is my Mom and Dad dancing in my Grandmother’s house while she plays the piano! My home has always had music and laughter. Even during the bad times, we laughed! We sang! So, I get it naturally! That’s where this story begins!
Geography: I was born in Anniston, Alabama. A great town in which to grow up! It really was! It had a little of everything. It had an army base, a four year college right up the road and the largest army depot in the free world! When I was growing up, it was an industrial town, the world’s leading producer of soil pipe ( look it up!). So, a lot of people from all over the world would visit Northeast Alabama for a lot of reasons. This made it a very cool place to play music! Anniston also had some of the meanest men ( and women) I have ever met! Fighters, brawlers, hard livin’, hard drinkin’ , hard workin’ types. I knew many of these folks which of course made Anniston a very cool place to write songs! Anniston was also the original home of The Alabama Shakespeare Festival as well as a great honky-tonk named “Elmer’s”! It had a very sophisticated, well educated enclave of socialites and some of the smartest, most intuitive “good ol’ boys and girls” I have ever met! I went to school with rich kids, poor kids, black kids ( after integration), oriental kids, and one American Indian (said he was anyway). It was a town of dichotomy so it was a great place for artists and musicians to live! To this day, some of the greatest musicians I have ever heard play are from Anniston and Calhoun County, Alabama. Back porch pickers that can blow away many so called stars!
That’s the first definition of my influences: a melting-pot of personalities, down-home sensibilities, a wander-lust for sophistication and some of the best musicians never heard except by a lucky few!
The Big Move: 1985, it was time to get outta Dodge! I moved to Panama City Beach, Florida and met a guy named Bill Buskell. He owned a beach bar/ restaurant named Pineapple Willy’s. The first time I saw it, I knew I wanted to play music there. Bill, on the other hand, was a bit skeptical! But since I am a persistent fella with stalker tendencies, after a couple of months of hounding him and to give himself some peace, he gave me a shot! June 24, 1985 I opened at Pineapple Willy’s and it has defined my life since that opening chord! See, even I am getting sentimental and the pat-on-the-back crap I said I wouldn’t do! Anyway, long story short ( I know, too late) Bill after getting to know me, thought I would make a pretty good comedian. My “All Music” show evolved into a comedy/music show. After much soul searching ( about an hour’s worth) I named my act “The Party Doctor”. Shout out to Bob Preston and Tyler Smith, they actually came up with the name! I sat in an antique optometrist’s chair ( most folks thought it was a barber’s chair or dentist’s chair – it wasn’t), dressed in scrubs and a lab coat and basically had a great time for a long time. I can never thank Bill Buskell enough. He is the smartest, nicest guy I have ever known. He taught me how to think outside the box and to act on my intuitions! That’s the main thing! Do it! And believe me! I DID!
Had To Take a Break For an Important Segue: In 1993, my son Grant was born! From the first minute I saw him, I knew my life’s true purpose! All the performing had a much more serious cause. All the late nights had to end! All the road dates had to stop! They did. I kept performing, but in bands that played mainly for local corporate events and weddings. Great gigs! Fun! Met really great people. It was just so very different from what I had been doing. These shows took me out of the spotlight as well as the nightlife! That was fine with me. I needed to be home for my son. But by being out of “open to the public” venues, most folks thought I had retired. Believe me, having a kid, I was tired, then re-tired every day! But friends, I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Before I started this adventure and began putting an act back together, he and I had a talk about it. He supports me 100%! So, with my son’s approval, the time is right!
Timing: Like I said earlier, my mentor taught me to shut up and do it! Several things happened in 2010 that got me to shut up and get back to it – Panama City Beach built and opened a new International Airport and Southwest Airlines started service there. BP had an accident in the Gulf of Mexico and really pissed me off! But mainly, the Party Doctor turned the big 5 – 0! 50! All these things together with my son’s blessing told me to quit talking about it and do it! So, I started writing songs. The Gulf Coast had such a terrible string of bad luck – hurricanes, floods, drought, tornados, then an oil spill! We needed a break. So, I wanted to celebrate this beautiful place where I lived! I started a collaboration with a super talented, super nice guy named Tom Hoots. He and his partner, Calvin Gann own Studio 812. Tom and I talked about what I wanted to do and how we should do it! We started with a song for Southwest Airlines. Celebrating the fact of the company flying into our new airport. We recorded it, sent it to them and they liked it. They allowed me and my band “The Shrimpboat Cowboys” to play for the opening of the airport and played the song, “Southwest Take Me There”, on their website and blog for quite a while! A very cool experience, to say the least! That’s when Tom and I decided to turn that one mini-song into an album celebrating the positive aspects of where we live! It took a while, nearly a year to finish but we just did it! An album we call “The Gulf of Mexico”!
Everything that’s old is new again: So, it’s time to get back out there. Putting on shows! Playing music! Trying to be funny! Mainly, having a good time and hoping folks have a good time with me! Where I’ve been, defines where I will go! Hopefully a little better, a little wiser, but still having a good time!

CHRIS BRANDONSmile Smile (S) “Smile, Smile” very promising release by Chris Brandon. Many listeners agree: They will never forget where they were and what they did when they first heard the unique and emotional voice of Chris Brandon. The dynamic singer impresses critics with a unique combination of emotional Pop music and a natural down-to-earth/new-country flavor. “Since I was a child I spent many nights secretly listening to the radio, and soon I became addicted to music” Brandon states with a convincing smile on his face that represents the blind artist’s inspiring personality. He was discovered by the company of BMG and the German producer Jack White, who is responsible for all-time Pop classics like “You Take My Selfcontrol” by Laura Branigan. “Smile, Smile” was written by his partner Andreas van Kane who introduced the song to Chris Brandon
ROY COSTIf I beat you home (S) Hello Goran,
I hope this finds you feeling great over in your beautiful nation of Sweden. It is so hot here that I might have to get the old skinny dippn' song out of the old archives.
Please find attached my country song of "If I Beat You Home".
I want to thank you for supporting country music, the independents and the Joyce Ramgatie DJ board and charts.
AMY JACKShake and Bake (S) Amy Jack brings the heat with her new single, "Shake and Bake." The new song has already received national attention when it was featured in a FOX Sports segment with NFL quarterback / Heisman Trophy Winner Baker Mayfield. "Shake and Bake" will also appear in other network basketball and football programming later this year.
“Shake and Bake” is the latest in a string of successful releases from Amy Jack. She has charted three singles on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart and her inspiring songs have received airplay across the US and around the world.
DALTON DOMINOSongs From The Exile (EP) Since releasing his debut album in 2015, Dalton Domino has championed his own kind of Texas-made country music, nodding to the western-shirted troubadours who came before him while still making room for heartland roots-rock, atmospheric Americana and the autobiographical lyrics of a songwriter who isn't afraid to shine a light upon his own demons.
MOTEL MIRRORSMotel Mirrors (A) There’s something strange yet familiar about Motel Mirrors – like an old photograph of a place you think you know, but don’t quite remember having visited.
The casual chemistry between Amy LaVere and John Paul Keith makes it seem like this happens all the time – boy meets girl, boy plays girl some songs, boy and girl form band. "It's not that we really decided to have a band,” Keith tells it. “It's just that by the time we got done having coffee she'd decided we were a band and was already booking shows for us. She'd sent me some band names before I even got home." Or, as LaVere says: "It just seemed pretty obvious. It sort of got legs."
If the collaboration was obvious to LaVere, the style was obvious to Keith: he wanted to emulate the classic 50s and 60s country duets – George Jones and Tammy Wynette, Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn. The two dove into their respective record collections, searching for songs they could make their own.
And so they became Motel Mirrors. The pair spent that winter with drummer Shawn Zorn, playing residency gigs at a few bars around Memphis, discovering their sound in those songs and developing original material. After a few months, LaVere approached Keith about an opportunity to record – she’d talked about the project with her label, Archer Records, and there was interest.
They spent a few days at Music+Arts studio with Jeff Powell (Bob Dylan, The Afghan Whigs, Big Star, Tonic, Stevie Ray Vaughan), tracking mostly live, with very few added accoutrements to their stripped-down three-piece. Krista Wroten-Combest dropped by to add some fiddle, Eric Lewis contributed a little lap steel, and they called it a record.
Three covers – Buddy Holly’s “Dearest," "Your Tender Loving Care” by Buck Owens and Susan Raye and Glen Campbell’s “As Far As I’m Concerned” – blend seamlessly with originals by Keith and a co-write for the pair, “That Makes Two of Us.”
“One thing that is important to me about the project is that it's not hokey or corny or campy or anything,” Keith says. “Sometimes when people try to do something with a classic country influence they can get hokey or self-righteous. I wanted to avoid all that and do something that was kind of romantic. The themes are classic – that's stuff you don't see a lot of anymore. I wanted to just explore that and do something that's timeless.”
And timeless is a good word for it. If you put the needle down and close your eyes, you might mistake yourself for being somewhere else. At another time, in a different town. In a bar, listening to a band of strangers, whose voices are at once, both fleeting and familiar
BRENDAN KELLYOur crusade (S) The lead single from Brendan Kelly's debut album. the album is comprised of ten original songs taken from Brendan's life experiences, all the up's and downs that life can throw at you.
Our Crusade represents a part of Brendan's life when he was knocked down by a car at the age of six and left paralyzed for many years, we are all on our own crusade in life
SCOTT M. STEVENSONJust be ready (S) I hope you and your listeners enjoy it.
Scott is a former Hollywood and Las Vegas performer and is also a professional recording artist and SAG-AFTRA actor. Also, Scott is an ordained southern baptist minister, attending Gardner-Webb University and Southeastern Theological Seminary. Scott is now teaching school in Hawaii, along with music evangelism, acting on TV and Motion pictures. People need to know that Christ loves them and I intend to carry that redeeming message of hope in Him.
MANON WARDManon Ward (EP) “Unlike Love” offers pulsing positivity, “Do Over” threads quirky rhymes in a twisty aural package and “Honey On Me” uses light blues/rock sounds for a lesson in female assertiveness. In her debut EP produced by guitar legend Johnny Garcia (Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood), Manon conveys effervescent melodies with a worldly cheer, and delivers a confidence that’s only transmitted when people fight through their obstacles and discover their purpose on earth.
AARON D´ARCYCharcoal and Ash (A) Aaron D’Arcy is extremely proud to announce the release of his new single DRINK IT UP.

JEFF BATESMe and Conway (A) “As an artist, I have certain goals at this point in my life, and that is to make the music that I want to make, without anybody saying it needs to be this way or you should do this,” says Bates. “I know I have the best fans in the world. They’ve been loyal, and they’ve been with me through thick and thin. I know what they ask for and what they want to hear, so I want to make that kind of music. I want to make music that I’m proud of – just once – without it being filtered through everybody else’s creative mind.”
JBAboutHeadAnd that is exactly what he is doing, not only with just one album, but several that are currently in the works. Bates, a huge Conway Twitty fan, has started a new record simply titled, Me and Conway. The collection will include six original tunes, as well as six Conway Twitty classics, including some possible duets. “My fans have screamed for years for me to record some Conway Twitty songs,” Bates says.
Other musical projects Bates has in the works include a Greatest Hits project as well as a unique Christmas concept CD. In the meantime, he is proudly co-managing and producing newcomer Michael Ray from his newly-built Bates Shop Studios.
However, his life and career have not always been on such a positive path. Bates took a dark detour from life in the late 90s where drugs and alcohol overtook his world and landed him in jail. The day Bates woke up from behind the cold, metal bars, he knew that only one person could help him turn things around. ?? “A lot of times you get trapped in a situation like that and you want to make a deal with God – get me out of here and I’ll be a better person,” Bates says. “I didn’t want that and I didn’t ask for that deal. I simply said I don’t want to be this person anymore … please help me be a better person. That was all I was after, no matter how long I had to stay in jail to do it.”
Some are not nearly as fortunate as Bates when they find themselves in that kind of situation, but he is one of the few who stayed strong in his choice to change. Just two years after being released from jail, Bates inked his first record deal with RCA Records and released his debut album, Rainbow Man. Three more albums would follow for Bates, including Leave the Light On (also on RCA), and his self-titled project and One Day Closer, both on Black River Entertainment.
However, his greatest accomplishment through it all is not scoring his first Top 10 single or having a hit album under his belt… its being a loving father to his beautiful daughter, Brianna.
“Being a daddy is my No. 1 job,” Bates smiles. “Nothing is as satisfying to me as being that little girl’s daddy. I try to give her a normal life when there’s nothing normal about doing what I do. One of the biggest changes with fatherhood for me is making decisions based on what’s good for her, rather than just what’s good for me or my career. God gave and trusted me and my wife with this little life, and I think that’s No. 1. What’s most important is making sure that she’s not only taken care of, but that we put thoughts into what we do to make her grow into the person we want her to be. She is so amazing. I’ve been around a lot of kids in my life, and I’ve never seen a child this young that’s this smart. She scares me sometimes!”
Being new parents has also helped the Bates’ become more aware of those in need, especially when it comes to children. Compassion International flew Bates and his wife to South Africa to see first hand the work they do to help aid families seek much needed care, medical attention and education. “It changed my life forever,” Bates says of the emotional trip that encouraged him and his wife to sponsor a child through the organization. “These families get up every day and it’s a struggle to find something to eat. I think that takes so much courage. To see that level of poverty, and then to see the heart and spirit of these people, where they’re just glad you came and for whatever it is they have, and they want to share it with you … I had never seen anything like this in my life. It’s become a big passion of mine to help them.”
While continuing to work on his own musical projects, his book, working with other artists, and being a full-time daddy, Bates also maintains a busy touring schedule each year, as well as speaking engagements to share his story with those to help prevent them making the wrong decisions in life as he did some 20-years ago. “I share it all through song and story,” says Bates, who won the ICM Faith, Family & Country Awards title for Mainstream Country Artist in 2011. “I share the trials and tribulations to drug addiction, going to jail, finding Jesus in jail, and what He’s done in my life the past 11 years. I’ve been clean and sober now 11 years.”
Not a single day goes by for Bates that he doesn’t count his life’s blessings. Bates takes pride in being an inspiration to others and is honored to give back in any way he can, especially through music. “There are so many things out there competing for entertainment,” says Bates. “I just want to make the music that I want to make for the people who want to hear it and continue to grow that fan base. It’s been so much fun. My fans have been a huge blessing, and I love making music for them.”

DERRYL PERRY: Fifty shades of red The heart of a troubador and the soul of a songwriter are both easy to please and hard to keep satisfied.

RODNEY CROWELL (feat. RANDY ROGERS & LEE ANN WOMACK): Flatland hillbillies On TEXAS, out Aug 15th and the second offering from his own RC1 Records, Rodney Crowell turns his emotional focus to the colorful Lone Star culture and the romance of regional music that formed his musical sensibility during his teen years in Houston, particularly the year 1965 (?My ears were brand new, and I was just transported by sound?), when the 15-year-old left home to join a band.
TEXAS, which he co-produced with Ray Kennedy, seeks to replicate the sound of that era, ?before psychedelia, when things were less smooth and guitars were a little crunchy. I have a romantic fascination with the sonics of music of that time. ISRC: QZCCZ1900001, from the Album: TEXAS

ROY COSTYou don´t know I exist (S) Hello Mr. Ohlzon,
I want to wish you the best up in the beautiful country of Sweden. It is summer time up here and time to get out the old Skinny Dippin' song I guess. You might not have that one by me?
I have decided to pull "You Don't Know I Exist" by Roy Cost from the CD album "Back To The Sixties". It is a country pop song ballad but has the flavor of an age that some of us lived through and loved when we could hear Ricky Nelson, Buddy Holly, Bob Luman, Jimmy Gilmer, Johnny Preston, Jack Scott, Conway Twitty and other legends. I hope you like it and will add it to your playlist and files
WES WAMMERWes Wammer (EP) Wes Wammer started his first band in Fresno ,California – ‘Wes Wammer and Texas Gold’ in 1986. They toured extensively in Southern California and the West coast. Two of his songs were chosen for a movie called “Line of Fire” in 1988. Wes re-located to Nashville 1989 and toured opening shows for Johnny Rodriguez.
Wes Wammer’s well-known admiration for Waylon Jennings led engineer Brooks Watson to encourage Wes to record “Waylons At The Gate” at Clementvision. The opportunity to record this song at the legendary Cowboy Arms Hotel and Recording Spa seemed fitting. Immediately after that session a fire completely destroyed the studio. The hard drive containing this recording was incredibly found intact in the ashes.
The rough edged vocals and eclectic group of performers eerily reminds fans of Waylon Jennings vocals and rockabilly style. As if Waylon is waiting at the gate to lend a few riffs or good ol’ boys to the group, the single “Waylons at the Gate” represents the memory, contributions and the legacy of the great country music legend Waylon Jennings.
Wes’s recording of “Waylons At The Gate” has reignited his passion for music. Wes intends to continue recording and is planning a CD release in the very near future

Co-written with Mike Reid who famously co-wrote Bonnie Raitt’s ‘I Can’t Make You Love Me’, among others, the song brings out the best of Irish and American influences and showcases Don Mescall’s unique style as a singer-songwriter.
Don is joined on the song by Maura O’Connell, who has collaborated with legends of Irish and American music down through the years. ‘The Last Song’ transcends the genres of Country, Folk, Acoustic and Americana music, resulting in something that is fresh, reflective and original.
The single follows up on the success of the album, ‘Lighthouse Keeper’ which charted at No.1 in the Irish Independent Charts upon it’s release and was also 'Album Of The Week' on Ireland's National Radio Station

LEE ROY JAMESNo more boleros (S) Irish showbiz legend Lee Roy James has just released a brand new single entitled 'No More Boleros’ to celebrate over fifty years in the Entertainment world.
Throughout his long career, Lee Roy James' one man cabaret show blendng music, comedy and showmanship, has made him popular throughout the UK, America and his native Ireland. This brand new single, 'No More Boleros' was written by Peter de Wijn with the original music by Maurice Ravel – adapted from ‘Bolero’ by Ravel.
Having started in his own band aged just 13, Lee Roy's first taste of showbiz came aged 20 as he cut his teeth in the vibrant Showband Scene in Ireland in the 1960s and 1970s. Shortly after, he moved to England where he worked the club scene, at his peak doing as many as 27 shows a week.
In the years that followed, Lee Roy James built up a substantial following across the globe, having appeared at the New York Irish Festival in 2003, as well as appearances in Nashville and Florida. He is also a regular fixture with Holiday-makers and ex-Pat's alike on the Costa Del Sol, where his trademark slogan "the natter and the patter" was born.
Lee Roy James is also well known for his previous single release, 'Tragedy', a tribute to those who died in the Hillsborough disaster. The song has since been adopted as an anthem for the Hillsborough Family Support Group (HFSG).
Lee Roy has just completed a sell out six night tour of Ireland with renowned Royle Family actor Ricky Tomlinson, Pam Jackson & Tony Bardon.
Talking about his new single, 'No More Boleros', Lee Roy said: "I was introduced to the song by a visitor from Holland while I was working in Spain. I’ve always admired Ravel’s ‘Bolero’ – and didn’t realise at the time that Peter de Witj had added these wonderful lyrics. I’ve adapted it to a more contemporary taste with a Mariachi vibe’.
GAIL RUSSELLThe little white church (S) Diamondback Records is proud to release this song by Gail Russell. It tells the story of the little white church in the small village of Urenui on the north Island of New Zealand, near where Gail grew up in the country; and where Gail’s Mum would regularly take her and her sisters. This award winning song can be heard by local fans at the EOTY (Entertainer Of The Year) competition, affiliated with NZCMA, in Tauranga in October; and your listeners will enjoy the story, as told by this popular Kiwi artist in song, with a little bluegrass background. Thanks for considering this song for airplay

DAVID RITSCHARDBrobrännaren (A) David Ritschard – Sveriges urbana cowboy, har de senaste 10 åren turnerat som frontman og låtskrivare i bluegrassbandet Spinning Jennies, samt Krokodiltårarna. I juni debuterar han med sitt första album i eget namn.
Med debutalbumet rör sig David Ritschard närmare nutiden, när vi tidligare har känt doften av svenskt/amerikanskt 60 tal, är det nu modern, rättfram countrymusik vi får serverat.
- Låtarna är inte nödvändigtvis självbiografiska, men alltid personliga, förklarar David Ritschard. David har alltid en kärlek till den hårt arbetande människan och de som hamnar i samhällets utkanter.
- Känslan och berättelserna som förmedlas i amerikansk folkmusik och tidlig populärmusik kan vanligtvis översättas till svenska förhållande. Och i det sammanhanget är det alltid risk att en svensk countrysångare hamnar i dansbands-facket. Det har varit en balansgång i mina projekt och nu när jag har börjat med ren country, måste jag nog vara ännu mer försiktig, spekulerar Ritschard.
Men den ideologiska skillnaden kvarstår; dansband sjunger om lycklig kärlek medan countrysånger oftast handlar om det motsatta. Oavsett vilket språk de sjungs på
THE TIME JUMPERSKid Sister (A) Kid Sister isn’t just The Time Jumpers’ fond farewell to a fallen musical comrade. It’s also a luminous demonstration of how music alleviates pains of all sorts, whether death, heartbreak, separation, loneliness, or just the messy fallout of plain bad judgment.
The ‘kid sister’ of the title is Dawn Sears, The Time Jumpers’ infinitely versatile “girl singer,” who died Dec. 11, 2014 after 10 years of gracing the band and 22 years of touring as harmony singer for Vince Gill, now an enthusiastic Time Jumper himself. She was the wife of Time Jumpers bandleader and fiddler, Kenny Sears.
Gill and his wife, Amy Grant, were doing a Christmas show at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium the night Dawn died. “I remember it vividly,” he says. "I felt Dawn’s presence come through the Ryman at the moment she passed, I think to tell me goodbye or give me the finger, or maybe both. I didn’t know, but I felt something in the room that was beautiful. Then Kenny told me the following morning she was gone. I came home after the Christmas show and spent maybe two hours reminiscing about Dawn, listening to her sing, still not knowing she had passed. When I got the news, I sat down and realized I had to put this in some form of a song.”
Thus was born the album’s title track and emotional focus. In “Kid Sister,” Gill sings Dawn from this life to the next, marveling all the while on her remarkable presence and voice. “I smiled when you laughed,” he croons to her, “and I wept when you sang.”
The album was conceived and started in mid-2014, before cancer stripped Dawn of her ability to sing. And so the first two tracks feature her voice. On the sprightly “My San Antonio Rose,” the last song she sang before losing her voice, Kenny says there were certain vocal lines she wanted to do over but couldn’t. Knowing that, Gill suggested Kenny sing the lines Dawn would have been dissatisfied with, thereby turning an intended solo into a duet recording.
“I Miss You,” the other Dawn cut, first saw life as a song Gill co-wrote and recorded for his most recent album but didn’t use. On it, Dawn sang harmony. To give it a proper place in this group album, Gill stripped off the original instrumentation and rewrote some of the lyrics to reflect Kenny’s perspective on missing Dawn and had The Time Jumpers replay all the music.
“To me, it was an honest way of using technology for something worthwhile,” Gill says.
Kenny says The Time Jumpers lost more with Dawn’s passing than just her soul-thrilling voice. “Dawn was quite a prankster,” he recalls. “She brought a lot of levity to the band. She was always leaning over and whispering into someone’s ear to break them up. We were kind of accustomed to that. She brought a lot of common sense as well.”
For the uninitiated and yet-to-be dazzled, the four-time Grammy-nominated The Time Jumpers is a 10-piece band made up of superpickers who normally pay their bills by working recording sessions or touring with major artists. Since Monday is usually a night off from their regular labors, they get together at the 3rd & Lindsley club in Nashville each week to play country songs that lean heavily toward western swing. They have become so popular that big-name artists routinely drop by to join them on stage or simply cheer them on. Among those drop-bys were Bonnie Raitt, Reba McEntire, Norah Jones, Robert Plant, The White Stripes, Kings Of Leon, Sheryl Crow, Joe Walsh, Elvis Costello, Jimmy Buffet and Kelly Clarkson.
Apart from Gill, who provides vocals and guitars, and Kenny Sears with fiddle and vocals, The Time Jumpers include Joe Spivey and Larry Franklin, fiddles and vocals; Paul Franklin, steel guitar; “Ranger Doug” Green, guitars and vocals; Billy Thomas, drums and vocals; Jeff Taylor, accordion, piano and vocals; Andy Reiss, guitars; and Brad Albin, bass.
With the release of Kid Sister, the band now has its own official theme song, a scorched-earth romp called “We’re The Time Jumpers.” Gill, who wrote the tune, name-checks every member of the band in the lyrics, as well as giving a nod to Dawn. He says he was inspired by the Texas Playboys’ show-opener. “I thought, ‘Hell, they got a theme song. We need one.”
Since each Time Jumper is something of a scholar in western swing and traditional country music, the band had no trouble selecting songs for Kid Sister. “We always just pick things as we go,” Sears explains. “We knew that we wanted to do Paul’s instrumental, “All Aboard,” and Joe wanted to do ‘I Hear You Talkin’,’ which he’d discovered watching an old Bob Wills movie. But a lot of the new stuff Vince just brought in the day of recording and said, ‘Here’s something. What do you all think of this?’ If we liked it, then we’d start piecing together an arrangement.”
Gill shies away from taking producer credit. “All I really did was a lot of the leg work, the extra stuff—vocal comping, harmony singing and a few edits to tighten things up,” he says. “I spent a little extra time on the record because it was cut at my house and I could do it. But the record’s really produced and arranged by the band. It’s such a great democracy.”
Sears agrees. “What we have with The Time Jumpers is unique and very special. We all respect each other’s opinions and each other’s ability. If someone brings a song in, we’re all listening to it carefully because we know it must be something pretty good or they wouldn’t have brought it.”
The collective choices for Kid Sister are clearly inspired ones. Franklin’s steel guitar-driven “All Aboard” roars with the excitement and inevitably of a runaway freight train as each member takes a turn at pouring on the instrumental coal. “I Hear You Talkin’” is a Cindy Walker gem from the 1940s that both she and Bob Wills recorded before Faron Young ran it up the country charts in 1959.
Another Time Jumpers resurrection is “Bloodshot Eyes,” a slice of comic despair that became a Top 5 hit in 1950 for its co-writer, Hank Penny, and later an Asleep At The Wheel staple. Gill brings back “Table For Two,” the achingly forlorn lament he and Max D. Barnes first contributed to Loretta Lynn’s 2002 album, Still Country.
Also here from Gill’s pen are the wistfully yearning “True Love Meant For Me,” the playfully regretful “Honky Tonkin’” and the begging-to-bagging “Sweet Rowena.”
Rounding out the list are “Empty Rooms,” a case study in the architecture of gloom written and sung by Ranger Doug; Billy Thomas’ veritable trail of tears, “Blue Highway Blues,” and Sears’ stately valedictory to Dawn, “This Heartache.”
That Kid Sister features 14 songs rather than the usual 10 to 12 is a reflection of The Time Jumpers wealth of vocal talent. “When we were planning the album,” Gill says, “I went to the record company and said, ‘This isn’t typical. There are seven singers here. If you make an 11- or 12-song record with one singer, that’s plenty. But with seven singers, you have to have enough songs to go around if you’re going to make it interesting.”
On this point, he clearly prevailed in every way

TANIA KERNAGHANBetter worn in (S) Country music sweetheart Tania Kernaghan is 100 per cent comfortable within her own skin. The singer-songwriter, who recently celebrated her 50th birthday, has never felt more secure within herself, and with her direction in life –and it shows. Embracing that infectious positivity, Tania is sharing her message of self-acceptance with a powerful new single, Better Worn In. Written and recorded with Nick Wolfe, of The Wolfe Brothers, in his Tasmanian studio, and co-written with her sister Fiona Kernaghan, the track is an exciting new direction for the multi-award-winning singer.It epitomises her ‘glass half full’ outlook on life and willcertainly resonate with music fans on many levels.
When Tania sings ‘oh it’s a beautiful thing when you feelalright in your own skin’, she is creating an anthem for anyone who has ever doubted themselves, and has now come out the other side. It is a powerful statement and one that is important to the Golden Guitar winner – the fact that getting older is a gift and one that has given her a different, sharper perspective.
“It’s the ultimate reality check,” says Tania. “I know I’m more confident and comfortable with myself now than I’ve ever been. I don’t obsess about the past much anymore or worry about how much life has already gone by. I’m more wondering, ‘what else might life have in store for me?’ Its an ongoing conversation – once it’s on your radar, it seems to come up a lot, that peace and clarity that comes with age. You develop a different idea about what beauty is and even what sexy is. That’s really empowering. You realise that old Hollywood stereotypes are a joke, real life is way more interesting.”
Better Worn In isn’t just a track about feminine aging either. It crosses sexes and it helped having Nick Wolfe topen the track with Tania and Fiona, giving a male perspective. In fact, the message behind the song translates tojust feeling great within yourself, full stop. “To me, self-acceptance and a happy heart are qualities I really admire,” says Tania. “I feel so comfortable in my own skin. Every line tells a story. I’m proud of those lines. This is where I am in life. The glass is more than half full, it is overflowing. It is all about being positive, there is a great life out there to embrace – get on board everyone, it is going to be one hell of a ride.”
The track was the first time Tania has written and recorded with long-time friend Nick. The idea actually came about at his wedding last year, which Tania – who is a registered civil celebrant – presided over. In the studio they discovered a fresh sound that enabled the established singer-songwriter to explore a new direction, while still adhering to her country roots. “It is like I have shed a new skin,” says Tania. “It is a whole new chapter turning over in my life, I love Nick’s energy and talent. He is a musical genius.”

MARTIN NILSSONLängtan till landet (A) Längtan till landet är ett album Martin Nilsson drömt om att få göra. Ett album inspelat i nashville med en amerikansk producent för att verkligen fånga sin favoritmusik - countryn.
Att han dessutom fått ett knippe grymma sånger skrivna av låtskrivare från USA, Kanada, Australien, England och Sverige till plattan förgyller albumet ytterligare.
- En dröm har gått i uppfyllelse. Det har varit en sann fröjd att få göra albumet, säger Martin.
Jag har under många år varit ute och turnerat och sjungit många countryhits som andra haft hits med.
Därför är det extra kul att få göra nya låtar till sina och som jag kommer turnera med framöver.
DAVID RITSCHARDSom en Hank Williams-refräng (S) Ny singel från David Ritschards kommande soloalbum »Brobrännaren«!
Ett decennium som Sveriges främste urbana cowboy, kanske mest känd som frontman i gäng som Spinning Jennies och The Green Line Travelers. 2016 släpptes EP:n Simmar för livet under namnet David Ritschard & Krokodiltårarna.
Nashvilledebut 2017, uppföljning våren 2018 i samband med prisnominering på Ameripolitan Music Awards i Memphis. Kul men inte helt bekväm, för svensk.
Nu som då står berättelsen i fokus samt den kompromisslösa kärleken till den hårt arbetande människan som alltid eller oftast drar nitlotten.

PIXIE JENKINS: The Wake PIXIE’s fiddle playing is uniquely Australian and, with his amazing energy, storytelling and humour, he has become one of the most recognizable artists in the industry. This is his first original album release in 25 years – a thought provoking journey.
“This recording has been a long journey for me. Over the past four decades I have recorded with some of the biggest names in the business and all that has seeped into my being. I have been part of other people’s dreams for so long I had forgotten my own. Hence, this is a collection of words and music that has been simmering away for many years. Finally, I’ve had a break long enough to sit in my home studio and spend the time quietly, but earnestly, putting the recording together. With the help of two of my oldest friends, I give you ‘BRIGALOW MOON’.
‘THE WAKE’ is a song to say goodbye to friends that are passing and those that have passed.”

Recently her brother and sister went back and remarked how much the town and the people had changed, but the beaches were still just as amazing and the Church house was still there, conjuring up so many memories

Hello Mr. Ohlzon; Wishing you well over in the great country of Sweden today. I wanted to send you "It Keeps Raining In My Heart" and I hope you like it and will give it some spins. I certainly thank you for your show and for keeping the independent artists out there in your country and around the world.
Thanks for your support. ------------- Hello Mr. Goran,
Wishing you well over there in the beautiful country of Sweden.
I hope you like my country pop song love song...This Time. It is shorter than my usual songs. If you would like some of my old 45 rpm vinyl phonograph record cuts I would try to pull the songs out of the archives and get you a copy. I did records with America's The Shadows, The Music Shoppe, Autumn Mist and a solo record on Pyramid Records (Nashville)
JO-EL SONNIERWhere's That Music Coming From (A) This cd is dedicated to a very special young man who passed away suddenly on June 1, 2010 during the recording of thid project, my brother-in-law, David (Dahveed) Weaver. David was a very successful attorney in Austin, Texas and a huge believer in my music. He shared his passion for music of all genres with all his friends and family. He was a big supporter of local Artists and never went more than a few days without hearing some live music. His love of life and amazing smile will be forever missed by his family and friends. Our great loss is surely heaven’s greatest treasure. Until our work here on Earth is done, we will wait to join you and once again, the circle will be unbroken.
In loving memory of my son Larry and special friends Lawrence Menard, Frank Landry, David Soileau, Tom Herbert, Cliff Newman and Jim Oliver

KENT MAXSONWhat I didn´t say (S) THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG:
What I Didn’t Say - Jordan Mogey contacted me and asked if a couple of his friends could stay with us when they came to visit Nashville. Those friends turned out to be Will Banister and Johnny Mulhair. I set Will, Johnny and I up for 6 writing sessions that week. This song came out of our session with Adam James Deiboldt. When we were exploring what to write about Adam threw out the title , “What I Didn’t Say.” I immediately said, “I have that same hook in my hook book” and promptly pulled out my iPhone to prove it. The idea was pretty simple. Tell a story about the regrets you have for things you didn’t say. This was a fun session. Adam and Johnny are top tier guitar players and Will has one of the smoothest bass baritones I have every heard. The three of us just clicked with each person contributing something unique and special. This is one of my favorite songs to play at shows.
TIM AMBLERMade of wood (S) Hi Folks,
