LEADBETTER SWAYNE: Loving in the country Track 1 of the Album, “Time and Life” which is a collaboration of 3 parts, one part aging poet, 2 parts singer song writers.
The concept was conjured up by Gavin Leadbetter front man for country band The Distance, leader of Thunder Road the Bruce Springsteen tribute show and music store owner.
Seeking to complete a folio of tunes that held a country feel Gavin sort some lyrical input from Barry Swayn a poet/lyricist with an old head (72 years young) full of stories memories and concepts.
Last part was Barry’s son Chris of The Warrains. Chris is a music teacher with a 30 year history in the making of music. The songs came together Gavin and Chris enjoyed the process and felt that instead of each separate unit making do with the outcome the songs deserved an album, Time and Life is the end result.
Colin Leadbetter, Gavin’s brother, is a producer sound engineer and mixing guru. Colin took the project to heart and polished things up a tad. We are now into the video phase and trying to give the songs some time and space.
These tunes will find their own way in life and hopefully bring some pleasure to listening audiences somewhere out in listening land

A story of a young couple working hard on their piece of land to create a future but having to continuously fight the harsh Australian elements that in the end broke their spirit. The story goes on to tell us that although the land became useless and baron it could not be sold because of the memories the two had created together.

After Niki's two country Albums, Niki thought it was time to record some of her many original Gospel songs. Most of the songs on the Album were written to be performed at country music festivals and in those performances all received awards.
While always having input into the arrangements on the album, Niki felt especially free and confident with this album. “There is no striving to please others in this album, but I tried to create what I felt was the destiny of each song.” This means you will hear some instruments such as a peaceful cello introduction and simple arrangements where less is more. The songs are deeply thought provoking, taking the listener from a place of honest reflection and question to unshakable faith

LEE FORSTER and PAUL PRICKETT: Outlaw graves Outback Grave Markers is a not for profit organisation who mark the graves of Australia’s Pioneers. They have installed nearly 600 plaques.
I went on a trip with “Outback Graves”, Trevor Tough and Major Paul Prickett CSM to the Kimberley where Aboriginal Ex-Soldiers were awarded Army Service medals. During this trip we visited graves that had been marked, and also marked some. When paying respects to those graves we pondered what really lay beneath the “Red Dust’. As we drove along Paul wrote a poem about this visit. We decided it needed a tune and chorus and the “Outback Graves’ song was born. Paul has done the reciting on this song. If you get chance, please check out www.outbackgraves.org You’ll find yourself immersed in real stories from our Pioneers

Since the early days, He’s toured overseas and all over Western Australia.The next step in his 30+ year musical journey is a solo project, covering themes of inner darkness, emptiness, isolation and the hunger and desire to find external fulfilment and ‘strike gold’

JETT WILLIAMSYou are on my lonely mind (A) Jett Williams, daughter of the legendary Hank Williams, was born in Montgomery, Alabama, five days after her father died on his way to Canton, Ohio, where he was to perform on New Year's Day, 1953. Relinquished by her natural mother, Bobbie Jett of Nashville, the infant was taken from the hospital where she was born into the home of Hank's mother, Lillian, who adopted her. Lillian, who started her lengthy adoption process within days of Hank's funeral, completed the adoption in December of 1954. Unfortunately, she was dead within two months and the Williams family no longer wanted the infant, whom Lillian had named Cathy Yvonne (for the "Yvonne" in "Jambalaya"). The Williams family made Jett a ward of the State of Alabama and she was relocated to a foster home in Pine Level, Alabama, at the age of three. Subsequently adopted again by a family in Mobile, Alabama, Jett was raised there and attended the University of Alabama.
During her youth, Jett had no idea who her natural parents were, let alone that her daddy was Hank Williams, but from a very young age she demonstrated an unusual and natural talent for music, singing, and her guitar. In the early 1980's, at the urging of her adoptive father and armed with a few facts and a little rumor, Jett set out to learn what she could about who she was and what had happened to her. After years of futile effort, fortune smiled and Jett got proof-positive that Hank Williams was her father. Not only was he her father, he had made all provisions for her and her well being. In fact, three months before Jett was born, Hank had prepared and executed a notarized pre-birth custody agreement giving him full custody of his as yet unborn daughter. The rest is history, and is documented in the files of the Alabama State Court and in the scores of newspaper and feature magazine articles written about Jett and her saga.
Jett Williams was declared by court order dated October 26, 1987, to be the biological daughter of Hank Williams. On June 5, 1989, the Supreme Court of the State of Alabama, reversing a lower court ruling, found that Jett, since birth, had been the victim of fraud and judicial error in that her identity was concealed from her for financial gain. The Supreme Court declared all prior orders in the Estate of Hank Williams to be null and void, since procured by fraud on the court, and reopened Hank's estate, making Jett Williams a legal heir, entitled to one-half the estate proceeds. Her autobiography, entitled "Ain't Nothin' as Sweet as My Baby," chronicles the saga of her struggle (Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1990).
Subsequent to the publication of her autobiography, the federal courts awarded Jett her proportionate share of her father's copyright renewal royalties. Since the story of Jett's existence first surfaced in 1985, she has been featured on the Today Show, Good Morning America, Inside Report, Inside Edition, Current Affair, Entertainment Tonight, Crook and Chase, Country Notes, Sonya Live, PM Magazine, and scores of other national and regional broadcasts. In most instances, such as Current Affair, Entertainment Tonight, and Sonya Live, to name but a few, Jett has been the subject of a major, and regularly repeated feature. Additionally, she has been the subject of feature articles in scores of publications, including People Magazine, The Washington Post Magazine, USA Today, Atlanta Constitution, New York Times, Southern Magazine, Dallas Times Herald, NY Daily News, Houston Chronicle, Chicago Tribune, AP Feature, Baltimore Sun, LA Daily News, Los Angeles Times, Providence Journal Bulletin, Birmingham Post Herald, South Bend Tribune, Ottawa Citizen, and Boston Herald.
Jett had a number of names and a number of homes in her early youth. In fact, every time she changed homes, someone changed her name. Somethings, however, were constant in Jett's first years, and all things were recorded by the various social workers charged with accounting for the activities of their most famous "ward." One "constant," according to the records, was Jett and her guitar. Starting with her first two years, spent with her grandmother -- Hank's mother -- Jett always had a guitar. And according to her peers in later years, she was always the hit of the party by singing and playing. Jett says she liked to sing until she made them cry. And she still does!

FOREST SUNBrighter Day (A) Emotional pain never feels good, but the self-guided therapy it often requires sure can sound good. So it is with songwriter Forest Sun’s ninth album, “Brighter Day,” and the 13 tracks he wrote in mapping a way back from a dark place to emotional clarity.
A split from his wife after a decade together and the subsequent loss of one of his best friends, his father, sent him tumbling. He climbed back one song at a time, and rarely does a sense of desertion create such hopeful melodies.
The lonely, winding trip he took through these songs works as salve for the listener too: Loss is a stranger to no one. From the questioning in “All This Freedom” and “When Will I See You?” to the coping of “Just Someone I Used to Know” and the dawning of hope in “One Candle” and “Clarity,” Forest invites the listener on a far better journey than he took.
Gawain Mathews (Mickey Hart Band, Ben Lee) produced the album, which features Rob Hooper (Hot Buttered Rum, Seth Walker and Carolyn Wonderland) on drums and Alex Budman on horns. Backing up Forest’s crisp guitar and crystal-clear vocals are singers Kelly McFarling, Lia Rose, Noelle Hampton (Belle Sounds), Lara Louise and Ingrid Serban, Forest’s ex-wife.
“‘Brighter Day’ is about being thrust fully into heartache and loss,” Forest says. “There is an acute awareness of impermanence that arose for me with the death of my father and the end of my marriage. This album morns those losses and looks for sparks of light in the dark. Writing, recording and sharing these songs lifted me up when I needed it most.”

MARVIN & VERNELL MORROWStand for old glory & kneel at the cross (S) Here is a new song release from Marvin & Vernell Morrow. I hope you and your listeners enjoy it. Written by Marvin E. Morrow & Gerald Duncan
FREUNDEThe great Dane and me (S) FREUNDE, named being the German for “friends”, is a project centered around Zurich based Heiko Freund and LA’s Daniel
Schwarz, both producers and musicians in their own right but more interested in exploring the American songwriting tradition
than merely furthering their own agenda.
The beauty of FREUNDE is that it is a loose collective rather than a band, one where a musically eclectic and ever-shifting
group of singers, songwriters, musicians and engineers move through its ranks in the pursuit and celebration of Americana,
Nashville Pop and Country Rock sounds. This ever-fluid approach means that things remain fresh and fun and as the line-ups
change different combinations of talent and ideas, musical outlooks and past experience are jumbled together in new and
exciting ways to release one or two finely crafted songs twice a year.
THE GREAT DANE AND ME is a guitar driven, danceable Countryrock song, while a fiddle and a pedalsteel guitar deliver
some oldschool goodness, a perfect feature for Saturday night dance parties, where everybody will sing along and enjoy
themselves, while the band is rocking the bar, barn, backyard or radio.
Presenting a real-life story about a man trying to find the love of his life while his giant Great Dane dog keeps messing up
every single encounter, so he keeps waiting for the one who will eventually love both of them, man and Dane
GLOBAL TONES feat. NELSON COLTIt´s OK (S) GLOBAL TONES is the result of an international collaboration between people – singers, lyricists, sound engineers - from USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, Netherlands, Nigeria and Austria. Head of the project is the Austrian composer, producer and musician Hannes Ortner.
The new EP Country Mood contains 5 new Country songs with different singers.
The first single “It’s Ok” with the Canadian singer Nelson Colt is a typical
uptempo Country song.
“Always late” is an uptempo song about people who are never punctual.
Everybody knows people that we sing about
“Never in my dreams” is an uptempo mix of Country feeling with pop elements.
“No man of mine” is a midtempo song about an unfulfilled love story
“Waiting for your train” is again an uptempo song
JUDY WELDENYou are there for me (S) You may have noticed that I've been releasing Gospel songs every other month. So for
October I'm releasing not only one of my own personal favorites, but one that many have
loved over the years, some telling me how much this song helped them with adverse situations in their life. This is possibly why YOU ARE THERE FOR ME stayed at #1 on the online Roots Gospel Chart for 18 weeks (4 1/2 months).
JOHN ANDERSONGoldmine (A) To put it simply, John Anderson is one of the greatest country music singers to ever step up to the microphone, possessing one of the most instantly recognizable vocal instruments in the history of the genre.
On Anderson’s latest album Goldmine, released on his own Bayou Boys label, Anderson has completed a long overdue record of original songs—the award-winning songwriter wrote or co-wrote 12 of the album’s 13 tracks—that will bring joy to the hearts of some of the most devoted fans in country music. Goldmine is also a record that, given the current state of contemporary country, could, like latter day releases by Cash and Haggard before him, find a home amid lovers of authentic music of any genre. Though he would never compare himself to his heroes, the fact is, John Anderson is now the standard bearer for traditional country music, of the 100 Proof variety.
Raised in Apopka, Fla., Anderson was exposed to both rock and traditional country growing up and, as incendiary rock outfits like Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and Lynyrd Skynyrd honed their chops around him, learned to love (and play) both types of music. But Anderson resisted the call of rock ‘n roll, electing rather to pursue his country music dreams. It was the traditional country ballads that lured him in and changed music history, songs like Porter Waggoner’s “Green, Green Grass of Home.”
“I loved those type of ballads,” Anderson says, “to the point I didn’t want to get away from it.”
Anderson moved to Nashville in 1972, working construction by day (including as a roofer at the Grand Ole Opry House) and playing the honky-tonks at night. He signed to Warner Bros. in 1977, notching his first major hit in 1980 with Billy Jo Shaver’s “I’m Just an Old Chunk of Coal (But I’m Gonna Be a Diamond Someday).” Other hits, including the classic “Wild and Blue” in 1982, solidified his status as a powerful new voice in country music. “Swingin’,” written by Anderson and Lionel Delmore, blew the roof off a year later, exploding to No. 1 on the Billboard Country chart, propelling Anderson to the CMA Horizon Award, and becoming one of the most enduring hits in the country canon.
Anderson plowed through the ebbs and flows of country music—and the country music business—throughout the ‘80s, and in the early 1990s engineered one of the greatest “comeback” runs (he never really left) in the history of the genre. Seminole Wind, released on BNA, produced hit singles in “Straight Tequila Night,” “When It Comes to You,” “Money in the Bank,” and the stirring title cut. The latter would have never been released had Anderson not stuck to his guns, a familiar refrain throughout his career as the artist has wound his way through virtually all of Nashville’s major labels.
No such clashes occurred in creating Goldmine, an album cut with the artist in complete control. Produced by Anderson with longtime collaborator Joe Spivey, Goldmine is an artistic achievement, recorded the way the singer intended. “With Goldmine, I thought, first off, I’m going to take my songs into the studio and make a record like I think it oughta be made, without all those other influences,” he says. “I really don’t need a lot of help to make a John Anderson record, and this record pretty much proves that. In fact, I’m more pleased with the sound of this record than I have been in a long time.”
It’s easy to see why. Goldmine has generous helpings of everything John Anderson does well, and he does a lot of things very well. The record has it all: a swampy cautionary anthem in the crowd-rousing “Freedom Ain’t Free,” rollicking mid-tempos like the roadhouse boogie (and Merle Haggard-penned) “Magic Mama,” “I Work A Lot Better,” and the hook-laden title cut. Deeply moving ballads in the traditional country style in “Back Home,” and “I Will Cross O’er the River.” And an abundance of romance in the haunting “Happily Ever After,” and, in a contemplative tribute to fans, “You All Are Beautiful.”
Then there are the indefinable, compelling set pieces that only John Anderson could deliver. “Louisiana Son of a Beast,” with its swagger, swamp cats and wild hogs, is an exercise in backwoods mythology. “Holdin’ On” is a regret-drenched ballad in the vein of “I Just Came Home to Count the Memories.” The wistful “On and On and On…,” builds a panoramic musical soundscape. The chiming, transcendent “The Song the Mountain Sings,” written with Buddy Cannon, is nothing short of a masterpiece, inarguably of the same stature and gravitas of “Seminole Wind.” In fact, with memorable musical moments throughout, the songs on Goldmine stand just fine alongside the best work John Anderson has ever laid down. And that’s saying something.
Beyond the inspired vocals and ambitious songwriting (Anderson was inducted to the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame on Oct. 5, 2014), the singer credits his handpicked studio musicians with the tasteful authenticity of Goldmine, which boasts a musicality light years from the over-produced bombast frequently found on contemporary country airwaves. “It’s all about knowing the right guys to call, and most all of the guys that played on this record are old friends, aside from being great musicians,” Anderson says, adding that he’s not too keen on having the studio players take their cues from demos or scratch vocals. Instead, Anderson plays the song live in the studio and let’s the pickers do what they do.
“For the most part, all my bigger records have been cut that way,” he explains. “I don’t want a fully-orchestrated demo trying to tell these guys what to do, all they get out of that is the interpretation of what some others guys have played. Why would you call your favorite players in the world and try to tell them to play like so-and-so played on the demo? I think that would be very foolish, myself. I want that record to be about that song. I play it just how I want it, and then me and Joe would figure out who would take the solos and the fills.”

KENDALL SHAFFER: Honky tonkin´ (whoever said it was easy) Anyone can put a cowboy hat on -- and if you love country music enough to do it, then
God bless ya. But it?s another thing to exude country from every fiber of your being, from the blood in your veins to the dirt under your fingernails. When you listen to Kendall Shaffer, the difference can?t be ignored. His 2018 EP The Traditional Revival opens with a sample of Ed Bruce?s 1976 classic ?Mammas Don?t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys.? Clearly, the sample seems to declare, you?re about to listen to the work of an artist who appreciates a vintage country sound.
But When Kendall and his band kick in with ?Honky Tonkin? (Whoever Said It Was Easy),?
it becomes strikingly apparent that he isn?t stuck on getting to the heart and soul of country by trying to make his music sound like it was made half a century ago. That?s because he doesn?t have to put on airs. Kendall?s songs sparkle with a decidedly modern edge and yet they still manage to cut through the homogenization. ISRC: ushm81907536, from the Album: THE TRADITIONAL REVIVAL

Max was the last to believe he could make a living playing music and be married to the girl of his dreams. ?When I let go and let God have control, it makes life easier and I always end up right where I?m supposed to be?, says Max. ISRC: USHM91910311

KATY McKENZIE: Advise I didn´t take Katy Mckenzie is subtly audacious with a voice that takes you down an old country road. Growing up in Castroville TX she began writing her own lyrics when she was 13 years old which led her to teach herself guitar and play open mics by the age of 15. She now lives in San Antonio and plays regularly in and around the area. "Advice I Didn?t Take" is the first release from her upcoming EP "Cowgirls Like Us". The song has a simple premise that is both truthful and relatable about advice we all give but just don?t seem to take! Her honest wit and sassy good humored lyrics make this bright two-step and cheerful melody unforgettable. Full of clever quips, Katy doles out advice she says everyone has either given or received and jokes that this song can serve as a recipe for people to make it in life. So take some good advice and give Katy's new single a listen! From the Album: COWGIRLS LIKE US
KEVIN FORREST CLARK: Five foot feisty Kevin Forrest Clark is a native Texan, splitting time in California. His style is mostly country rock, with some blues and funk on the side.

BRET MULLINS: Home sweet Texas Carefree blonde hair tucked under a Stetson hat, an old guitar, and an easy grin are key elements of singer Bret Mullins? signature look.

San Antonio awarded Bret with the title ?Best Country Band? in 2016. The 6?-3? singer just released his first single, ?Home Sweet Texas? from his upcoming 3rd album.The steady rise in popularity and the full dancehall concerts seem to say that Bret Mullins is just getting started and that the country music scene can expect a whole lot more in the future ISRC: ushm81995077, from the Album: YOU'RE WHY GOD MADE ME
JON STORK: Facts and lies The grass seems a little greener on the other side most of the time, until you get there. If you know someone or have been there yourself, the song is going to resinate. "Facts and Lies" catches the essence, in a subject most prefer to dance around. A tune with the energy and story to match, will make you think and bring you in for a second listen.
Hitting the pavement a little harder, along with pen to paper, ?In Your Radio? was released in May of 2017. With even less time, Stork came out of the gate strong with his first single, ?Rodeo Blues?, in December 2017. Getting his band and sound right for the next ten months is what he did. Playing all over Texas and some outside of the state, the words began to spread. In October of 2018 the second radio single hit the charts, as ?One Night Stand? began to grab the attention of people from all over. Today, the culmination of stories (turned song) have resulted in something people are going to have to listen to, twice. ISRC: US2761993138

CHLOE STYLERPatient heart (S) “Patient Heart” is the follow up to the wildly successful, “When Your Light Burns”. It was co-written by Chloe and two of her best friends & fellow musicians – Jenny Mitchell and George Goodfellow - while at a song writing retreat on a secluded sheep station in rural NSW.
Chloe explains that a Patient Heart is one that waits for it’s other half to find its way home. The song plays on the idea that the heart is reaching the end of its tether and is holding out for an answer, but is cut short before we find out.
Chloe hopes that the song resonates with the other Patient Heart’s out there and follows the same path as her last single.

KEL-ANNE BRANDTLet music give you wings (S) This beautifully uplifting new song was co-written by the very talented Drew McAlister and Kel-Anne Brandt.
“We wrote this song quite a few years ago with my daughter in mind. At the time she was looking for Mr Right. She had been on a roller coaster ride of relationships and was beginning to think that she would never find the right one. She is a beautiful girl & a beautiful singer and she has always loved music so much and because of this I went to Drew & asked him to help me write this song for her, to remind her that no matter what, she had an inner strength & Music would always be there to help lift her up & so would I. Drew is an amazing songwriter, this is the 2nd song that I have written with him, he is so easy to work with. May Music always give you Wings.” Kel-Anne x

KENT MAXSONBefore it was legal (S) Before It Was Legal - I was reminiscing with an old high school buddy of mine and we started talking about how beer lost some of its flavor when we reached the legal drinking age. I started thinking of all of the things you are not allowed to do until you get a certain age. When you are a kid there is a thrill that comes from the anticipation of sneaking around and experiencing the forbidden fruit which is reserved for adults. As you grow older doing crazy things loses its appeal but inside you kind of long for the adventure you used to have. There is no way around the fact that things change when you have to get your sleep because you have to go to work in the morning. You chose your actions a little more carefully when you have the responsibility of raising children. I shared this idea with my good friend, Alyssa Trahan. Alyssa is an incredible songwriter. Some of my favorite songs I have written have been with her. I love this song because it captures some of the complexities of growing older. One of life’s challenges is remaining young at heart while being a responsible adult. Ahhhh, the paradox…

KACY & CLAYTONCarrying on (A) Kacy & Clayton are set to return with Carrying On via New West Records on October 4th, 2019. The 10-song set was produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and recorded by Tom Schick at The Loft, Wilco’s recording studio & rehearsal space in Chicago, IL. Carrying On follows the international acclaim for their previous records Strange Country (which Q Magazine called “A beautiful album that nudges a classic past into a brave future”) and 2017’s The Siren’s Song (described by Uncut as “Ageless and beguiling. A classic record for this or any other time.”).
The music Kacy & Clayton make is inextricable from where they grew up. The second cousins sing about the kind of people you’d find in Wood Mountain, Saskatchewan (population very few). The hills, barns, and remoteness of the area are in these songs, with a bittersweet acknowledgement that this music has taken them far from home. Their sound is equal parts homespun, coming from a family and community where playing music is an ever present part of social gatherings, and the rare country, blues, and English folk rock they obsess over and collect. It’s an arresting amalgamation of psychedelic folk, English folk revival and the ancestral music of Southern Appalachia. For Carrying On, Clayton cites as influences: Bobbie Gentry’s Delta Sweete, Hoyt Axton’s My Griffin Is Gone, Cajun fiddle music, and the steel guitar of Ralph Mooney, who played on many of the records that defined the Bakersfield country music scene of the 1950s. Sixties psych has also woven its way into these new songs; Kacy enjoys telling people that they live 250km from the mental hospital that coined the term “psychedelic.”
Of Carrying On, Jeff Tweedy said "When I first heard Kacy and Clayton, I was struck by how much detail and nuance they had absorbed from what sounded like a large swath of my record collection. When I told them that they were as good as the artists they were drawing from, I’m not sure they believed me. On this record I don’t hear those influences as much as I hear them taking the things they love so intimately and telling their own story. I think they’re a truly great band.”
Having toured almost nonstop for the last two years, Carrying On was conceived and honed on the road and recorded immediately after a jaunt across Western Canada, mostly as live takes with the minimum of overdubs. The songs having been tried and tested before audiences each night with Kacy & Clayton offering, “This album has, by far, the most intense and confident performances we’ve ever done on record and I hope that intensity will be felt by the listener”

“‘Keep Us Apart’ is a modern country song. It sits well with the theme of my debut album ‘Sad Love Songs’. Only this one is about loving someone so much that nothing can keep you apart.

I just wanted to reach out to you, I was wondering if you would be interested in my music for your show. Please find attached my new single 'Live The Dream'
JASON HAWK HARRISIntroducing Jason Hawk Harris (EP) This exclusive NoiseTrade release includes three songs from orchestral country/rock/folk mastermind Jason Hawk Harris's 2019 debut album 'Love & the Dark,' plus an acoustic demo of never-before-released song "The Risk You Take." With an unlikely background, Harris is a singer/guitarist/songwriter who walks his own line, one that touches on Lyle Lovett’s lyrical frankness, John Moreland’s punk cerebralism and Judee Sill’s mysticism and orchestral sensibility. There’s even the literary and sonic audacity of an early Steve Earle, an outlaw unafraid to embrace harmony.On “Cussing at the Light,” the classic “drink-you-off-my-mind” trope has an updated countrypolitan vibe with its precise harmonies courtesy of Natalie Nicoles, and a raucous teenage urgency rumbles through the punchy “I’m Afraid.” "The Smoke and the Stars" takes you to compelling new places. You can hear the essence of classical music in a long crescendo; you can feel his Houston upbringing in JHH’s soulful and humid inflection; you can sense his Los Angeles home in the sharp and risky dynamics. You can feel it when Harris swings for the fences. "The Risk You Take," culled from Jason's acoustic archives, displays the songwriter in his most unvarnished, natural state; this is where his grandiose, swirling arrangements first start.
PAUL WILLIAMS & DELL MCCOURYI´m so lonesome I could cry (S) Hope you enjoy this great bluegrass version of the great HANK WILLIAMS song.
From the new album (PIECES): Staring JASON BARIE as the RAMBLIN' FIDDLER.
Jason is a dear friend & played on several of my songs, so just tryin to help him out some. Thank you all always.

RUTHIE COLLINSJoshua tree (S) "Joshua Tree" is the new song from singer/songwriter Ruthie Collins. “‘Joshua Tree’ to me is like a lucky charm, a rabbit’s foot, or a worry stone that you carry around in your pocket,” shares Collins. “It seems to have some kind of energy that has brought some really interesting and magical things into my life. I’ve never written a song like that before. I originally wrote this song about two of my heroes and their tragic love story. I was inspired by the story of Emmylou Harris and Gram Parsons, how he discovered her and brought her on the road. The story I heard was that there were feelings and chemistry there but they had never given in to it. But then the time came that Emmylou decided she was finally going to tell Gram that she was in love with him. She didn’t want to tell him over the phone though, and they were about to go back out on the road in a few weeks, so she decided to wait until she could say the words face to face. Tragically, Gram Parsons overdosed and passed away before she got the chance. He died in Joshua Tree in 1973. I thought this might actually be the saddest thing I had ever heard, and as a self-proclaimed lover and writer of sad songs, I felt compelled to take on this story. I brought the idea to my friend Luke Sheets and together we finished the song. It was the last addition to my record, I wrote it just a few days before we went into the studio. I had never been, but since writing the song, I have visited Joshua Tree, California many times, and I feel so inexplicably drawn to that special place. I’m not sure if it’s the song, the story, my experiences there, or if there’s just some connection to the energy, but I’ve truly never known anything like it. This song means many things to me now. It’s not only a snapshot of a great love story that almost was, but it’s an idea that love is never truly gone because love cannot die. No matter where you are in the world or in time, love always exists. This song to me is like a message in a bottle filled with that great love that you throw out into the Universe. Who knows what happens next?”
“Joshua Tree” was produced by Wesley Harllee and mixed by 5-time GRAMMY Award-winning engineer Ryan Freeland (Bonnie Raitt, Ray LaMontagne, Ingrid Michaelson)
W.B. AND THE GEEZERS: Dixie W.B. and The Geezers is a talented band with a passion for authentic country vibes, and a great sense of humor!

Produced by Dan Stenhouse at Creative Lab Studio, this song was co-written by Sue and song writing master, Stefan Kingsford- Brown. The song is about being in a relationship, knowing it's time to move on and coming to the conclusion that there isn't any way of undoing all the hurtful things that the other person has done, but also having feelings of insecurities about how to move on.
Sue is looking forward to heading to Sydney later in the year to work with acclaimed producer Simon Johnson on her upcoming album.

TOM CURTAIN: We´re still here ‘We’re Still Here’ is the first single from Tom Curtain’s highly anticipated fourth studio album, co-written and produced by Garth Porter, and due to be released later this year.
Tom had toured through drought-stricken western Queensland only weeks before the devastating 2019 floods. As he drove home to the Northern Territory following the floods, Tom was overcome by the death and destruction which lay in the now lush, green Queensland pastures as far as the eye could see.
Moved by the devastating floods, fires and droughts that continue to cripple rural Australia, Tom was inspired to put pen to paper to commemorate the resilience of farming families and their communities, particularly in times of adversity.
Tom teamed-up with Garth Porter to write ‘We’re Still Here’, a salute to rural Australia and the uncanny ability of rural communities to pull together, rebuild and move forward despite ongoing challenges, natural disasters and isolation
LANCE FRIEND: Ned Kelly said ‘Ned Kelly Said’ will be the song that sees Lance Friend bursting back on the airwaves after what has been an extended break from the industry. A labour of love spanning decades is now testament to a young boys school excursion to Glenrowan and the effect this visit still holds over him today.
Like him or loath him, Ned Kelly is undoubtedly an international icon for Australia. In this song Lance has hinted that ‘There is a little bit of Ned in all of Us’ as Australians continue to acknowledge his existence with various new movies, tattoos, hair styles, beards and memorabilia. The message is clear ‘It’s ok to be a proud Australian and honour our history’.
Working with one of Australia’s finest producers Brendan Radford, Lance released his first solo album in 2012 titled ‘The Album’. Lance has been back in the studio with Brendan working on his new songs alongside some of Australia’s finest musicians including Lawrie Minson, James Gillard, Michel Rose, Vaughan Jones, Mick Albeck and the late Glen Hannah.

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:

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.

GARY PATRICK: Man´s gotta have some fun I love everything there is about music. How it makes me laugh, cry, and comforts me. How it pumps me up, reminds me that others hurt too and that the human condition is cathartic. Most of all, I love when music and story are intertwined.
My inspiration and love for music is from family and life. I am the youngest of 4 from a household that constantly flowed with music. My mother sang with the voice of an angel and was known all over Jacksonville Texas for her gift of song.
Mom gave me her love of Classics, Church Hymns, and the heart to lift up with music. The gift of storytelling through song came from my Dad. Now coming full circle to East Texas, I?m back to where my inspiration started. 2017 was quite the serendipitous year, as I met dear friend and producer, Chad Mauldin, who inspired the final pieces of the puzzle. Now with a brand-new album release for 2018, No Standing Waves is the latest music works of my life. Songs about heart & the human conditions. ISRC: TCADQ1818917, from the Album: NO STANDING WAVES

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.

CHAD COOKE BAND: Life behind bars The follow up to the record setting "Whatever It Takes"...Chad Cooke Band brings you Life Behind Bars: a clever twist on words that narrates the point of view from the bartender?s perspective. 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. Life Behind Bars is an ode to the patrons, the smoke, and the out-of-tune cover bands. ?Doing what you got to do to fill that jar, that?s just Life Behind Bars?.

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? Country music has always drifted a little right and left of center over time, but I?m making a strong effort to bring it back a little closer to center with more traditional instrumentation, real musicians, with real lyrics about real life that we can all relate to. 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!

This album has something for everyone and is a fine listen for those who appreciate vintage sounding country music with a modern spin.
Bobby Joe Owens is a new age Renaissance Man. Best known as a Singer/Songwriter and Band Leader/Front Man for the band Retro Deluxe, Bobby Joe is also a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, a father, husband, inventor, artist, entrepreneur, restaurateur, philanthropist, producer, innovator and so much more.

THE CHARLIE DANIELS BANDRoaf Dogs (A) Charlie Daniels is partly Western and partly Southern. His signature “bullrider” hat and belt buckle, his lifestyle on the Twin Pines Ranch (a boyhood dream come true), his love of horses, cowboy lore and the heroes of championship rodeo, Western movies, and Louis L'Amour novels, identify him as a Westerner. The son of a lumberjack and a Southerner by birth, his music - rock, country, bluegrass, blues, gospel - is quintessentially Southern. In fact, even his bent for all things Western is Southern, because his attire, his lifestyle and his interests are historically emblematic of Southern working class solidarity with the “lone cowboy” individualism of the American West. It hasn't been so much a style of music, but more the values consistently reflected in several styles that has connected Charlie Daniels with millions of fans. For decades, he has steadfastly refused to label his music as anything other than “CDB music,” music that is now sung around the fire at 4-H Club and scout camps, helped elect an American President, and been popularized on a variety of radio formats.
Like so many great American success stories, The Charlie Daniels saga begins in rural obscurity. Born in 1936 in Wilmington, North Carolina, he was raised on a musical diet that included Pentecostal gospel, local bluegrass bands, and the rhythm & blues and country music emanating respectively from Nashville's 50,000-watt megabroadcasters WLAC and WSM.
He graduated from high school in 1955 and soon enlisted in the rock .n' roll revolution ignited by Mississippian Elvis Aaron Presley. Already skilled on guitar, fiddle and mandolin, Daniels formed a rock .n' roll band and hit the road.
While enroute to California in 1959 the group paused in Texas to record “Jaguar,” an instrumental produced by the Bob Johnston, which was picked up for national distribution by Epic. It was also the beginning for a long association with Johnston. The two wrote “It Hurts Me,” which became the B side of a 1964 Presley hit. In 1969, at the urging of Johnston, Daniels moved to middle Tennessee to find work as a session guitarist in Nashville.
Among his more notable sessions were the Bob Dylan albums of 1969-70 Nashville Skyline, New Morning, and Self Portrait. Daniels produced the Youngbloods albums of 1969-70 Elephant Mountain and Ride the Wind, toured Europe with Leonard Cohen and performed on records with artists as different as Al Kooper and Marty Robbins.
Daniels broke through as a record maker, himself, with 1973's Honey In the Rock and its hit hippie song “Uneasy Rider.” His rebel anthems “Long Haired Country Boy” and “The South's Gonna Do It” propelled his 1975 collection Fire On the Mountain to Double Platinum status.
Following stints with Capitol and Kama Sutra, Epic Records signed him to its rock roster in New York in 1976. The contract, reportedly worth $3 million, was the largest ever given to a Nashville act up to that time. In the summer of 1979 Daniels rewarded the company's faith by delivering “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” which became a Platinum single, topped both country and pop charts, won a Grammy Award, became an international phenomenon, earned three Country Music Association trophies, became a cornerstone of the Urban Cowboy movie soundtrack and propelled Daniel's Million Mile Reflections album to Triple Platinum sales levels.
The album's title was a reference to a milestone in The Charlie Daniels Band's legendary coast to coast tours. Including two drummers, twin guitars, and a flamenco dancer, the CDB often toured more than 250 days a year and by this time had logged more than a million miles on the road. On the Million Mile Reflections Tour, transported in a convoy of busses and gleaming black tractor-trailer rigs - a show that stopped traffic all over the country - the band now included a full horn section, back-up singers, a troupe of clog dancers and sometimes a gospel choir. By 1981, the Charlie Daniels Band had twice been voted the Academy of Country Music's Touring Band of the Year.
Daniels' annual Volunteer Jam concerts, world-famous musical extravaganzas that served as a prototype for many of today's annual day-long music marathons, always featured a variety of current stars and heritage artists and are considered by historians as his most impressive contribution to Southern music. Among the artists “Jam Daddy” has hosted at 16 of these mega musical samplers are Roy Acuff, Don Henley, Tanya Tucker, Amy Grant, Leon Russell, Billy Ray Cyrus, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, James Brown, Duane Eddy, Pat Boone, The Outlaws, Dwight Yoakam, Steppenwolf, Bill Monroe, Exile, The Judds, Orleans, Willie Nelson, the Allman Brothers, Link Wray, Ted
Nugent, Billy Joel, the Marshall Tucker Band, Solomon Burke, Little Richard, B. B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eugene Fodor, Woody Herman, and Bobby Jones and the New Life Singers.
“I used to say, .I'm not an outlaw; I'm an outcast,'” says the Grammy Award winning star. “When it gets right down to the nitty gritty, I've just tried to be who I am. I've never followed trends or fads. I couldn't even if I tried. I can't be them; I can't be anybody but me.”
When you hear a classic Charlie Daniels Band performance like “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” you hear music that knows no clear genre. Is it a folk tale? A southern boogie? A country fiddle tune? An electric rock anthem? The answer is, “yes” to all of that and more. And the same goes for “In America,” “Uneasy Rider,” “The South's Gonna Do It,” “Long Haired Country Boy,” “Still in Saigon,” “The Legend of Wooley Swamp,” and the rest of a catalog that spans 50 years of record making and represents more than 20 million in sales.
His resume includes recording sessions with artists as diverse as Bob Dylan, Flatt & Scruggs, Pete Seeger, Mark O'Connor, Leonard Cohen and Ringo Starr. His songs have been recorded by Elvis Presley and Tammy Wynette. This touring legend has been documented by ABC Newsmagazine 20/20.
In April 1998, top stars and two former Presidents paid tribute to Daniels when he was named the recipient of the Pioneer Award at the Academy of Country Music's annual nationally televised ceremonies.
“In his time he's played everything from rock to jazz, folk to western swing, and honkytonk to award-winning gospel”, former President Jimmy Carter said. “In Charlie's own words, .Let there be harmony, let there be fun and 12 notes of music to make us all one.'.”
“Charlie's love of music is only surpassed by his love of people, especially the American people,” former President Gerald Ford said. “He's traveled this land from coast to coast singing about the things that concern the American people. The Academy of Country Music's Pioneer Award is presented to a supremely talented compassionate and proud American, and a fair to middlin' golfer, too!”
On Saturday night, January 19th, 2008, Charlie's life long dream became a reality. He was inducted as a full-fledged member into the Grand Ole Opry. “It is an honor that I can't begin to articulate, there is no way I can express what it means to me”, says Daniels. “And to make it special, I was joined on stage by Russell Palmer, the man who taught me my first guitar chords all those years ago.” “I pursued my dream in music and by the goodness of God have been able to have a wonderful career, which has spanned
“I have been blessed with Gold, Platinum and Multiplatinum albums, I have appeared many times on network television, even in moving pictures. I have won multiple awards from The Country Music Association, The Academy of Country Music, The Gospel Music Association and even a Grammy. I have even played on the Grand Ole Opry many times. But I was always on the outside looking in. I was always a guest, never a member.”
DAVID STARRBeauty and Ruin (S) Beauty And Ruin is the first single from the upcoming David Starr release by the same name. The album is produced by John Oates and is scheduled for full release in February 2020. Songwriter: David Starr and Dana Cooper.
When Dana Cooper is out on tour, he takes time to explore each town. From small-town squares to local cemeteries, Cooper photographs what intrigues him. In reviewing his photos, David Starr noted one of his captions, “So much beauty in ruin out here,” and the song was born.

BOBBY MACKEYAmerica´s Honky Tonk (S) Bobby Mackey has always stayed true to his musical roots with influences such as Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, George Jones, Buck Owens, Conway Twitty and Johnny Paycheck. Mackey's music is a tribute to these artists using his own unique vocal style.

Written by Bobby Mackey from his soon to be released EP, "America's Honky Tonk" captures the excitement and 41 year history of Bobby Mackey's famous landmark nightclub
THE CALEB DAUGHERTY BANDWildwood flower blues (S) Caleb Daugherty was born in 1992 in Connersville Indiana. Raised in a musical family, Caleb began singing and playing the guitar at 7 years old.
While there have been many highlights in his musical career, the most memorable to date would be June 2016, when he was asked by Rhonda Vincent, Queen of Bluegrass, to join her and her band on stage at the Grand Ole Opry, on guitar and vocals.
As if that wasn't enough of an honor, he was also invited to perform at the 1st Annual "Keith Whitley Tribute Show" at the Nashville Palace, to honor one of his musical heros, along side the likes of Lorrie Morgan, Darryl Worley, Ken Mellons, Kevin Denney and several other great artist.
On May 9th 2019 Caleb will be honoring the late Keith Whitley once again, alongside the likes of Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Mark Wills, Darryl Worley, Mark Chesnutt, Tracy Lawrence, Joe Diffie and many others at The Country Music Hall of Fame for the Keith Whitley 30th Anniversary Memorial Concert, on the Anniversary of Keiths untimely passing.

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.
‘I want my money back’ is the first release from the EP Treehouse Music

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
