FRIENDS OF GARRY KOEHLER: The writer It’s not every day you hear more than 10 singer/songwriters add their voices to one song.

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

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’.

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 Datum: 2019-06-10 Label: www.davidritschard.com ISRC: Releasedatum: 2019-06-14
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 Datum: 2019-06-10 Label: Rounder Records thetimejumpers.com/ ISRC: Releasedatum:

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.” Datum: 2019-06-02 Label: ISRC: Releasedatum:

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.”
SAMANTHA MOONEY: In this town ‘IN THIS TOWN is the next single from SAMANTHA MOONEY’s new album, ‘DIVE IN DEEP’. Written about the beautiful coastal town of South West Rocks on the NSW Mid-North Coast and remembering the fun simple life there as a child. Samantha’s family moved to SWR from Victoria when she was 7 years old and left to go to Queensland when she was almost 15.
It was a childhood spent exploring the stunning beaches, swimming and playing with her brother and sisters, attending the very small local primary school and being active and outdoors. For most of their years there they lived in a house owned by the Church next door. 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

Coupled with a finger picked chord progression that I had been waiting for years to use on something special. The result is one that I am very proud of.”

LUCY PACE: Step by step STEP BY STEP, the latest single by Melbourne's Singer/Songwriter LUCY PACE, challenges the conventions of a pop-country ballad and will inspire you to never give up. The song beautifully touches on the broken heart and reflects on the strength to carry on.
Lucy, whose upbringing was surrounded by music, was inspired, at an early age, to write and sing her own music. It all began at the Tamworth Country Music Festival when Lucy was called to perform at the local nursing homes and was a busker on Peel Street. It was at that moment when she realised Country Music was her destiny and the missing pieces of her life came together naturally and transcended through to her music.
Lucy has released a total of 13 singles, 2 albums and 2 cover albums based on her musical influences such as Johnny Cash, Connie Francis, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Dwight Yoakam, The Mavericks and Brenda Lee.
Lucy's vocal offers a blend of Australian and American county but has a unique and changing tone colour from song to song. Lucy's songs are emotive and radiate to the listener's soul. Her creative songwriting talent displays a personal touch and her lyrics provoke reminiscence and evoke a sense of 'deja vu'.
Let Lucy Pace, Melbourne's formidable musical country music artist take you every 'step by step' of the journey

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.

Jennie J also known as Jennie Johnson originally from San Bernardino, CA has had a journey of a lifetime. Coming from a very broken home full of abuse to living in foster care a good portion of her life, to living in her own personal prison for years in a marriage full of emotional, physical and verbal abuse. Jennie has came a very long way in her time, rebuilt her life, and music is the one thing that never left her side and has been her lifeline.
Her latest single "Movin On" is a heartfelt emotional but yet uplifting track of a part of Jennie's Journey Jennie has faced many years of discouragement and abuse and always being told she wouldn't be what she wanted to be, was not good enough and she would never make her dreams come true. Jennie had to finally stand up and say I've had enough I want more in life and I deserve happiness! The girl you see today fought and never gave up on that passion and has been "Movin On" ever since. Jennie used that discouragement as a fuel to her already burning fire inside to make sure she continued to dream and go after what she loved doing, despite what people say.

JUSTIN TOWNES EARLThe Saint Of Los Causes (A) De tolv låtarna på »The Saint of Lost Causes« är kanske inte direkt politiska, men i god Woody Guthrie-anda gör Justin Townes nerslag i det Amerika som sällan kommer till tals. Han försöker undvika pekpinnar, men underdog-perspektivet är hela tiden självklart.
The Saint Of Lost Causes is the 8th album from American roots troubadour, Justin Townes Earle. Earle’s latest album finds a songwriter and artist who is unflinching and unequivocal in his truth. When writing this album, Earle focused on a different America—the disenfranchised and the downtrodden, the oppressed and the oppressors, the hopeful and the hopeless. There’s the drugstore-cowboy-turned-cop-killer praying for forgiveness (“Appalachian Nightmare”) and the common Michiganders persevering through economic and industrial devastation (“Flint City Shake It”); the stuck mother dreaming of a better life on the right side of the California tracks (“Over Alameda”) and the Cuban man in New York City weighed down by a world of regret (“Ahi Esta Mi Nina”); the “used up” soul desperate to get to New Orleans (“Ain’t Got No Money”) and the “sons of bitches” in West Virginia poisoning the land and sea (“Don’t Drink the Water”). These are individuals and communities in every corner of the country, struggling through the ordinary—and sometimes extraordinary—circumstances of everyday life.

Some of you may have this song already so forgive the double up. However this one is very close to my heart.
I first met Gillian Tuite in 2007 and was immediately struck by the then teen's ambition and willingness to learn.Learn she did, firstly mastering her deft finger style guitar playing at the hands of her cousin guitar maestro Pete Rudden. Then hone the craft of songwriting by mixing with the best from both sides of the Atlantic folks like Buddy Mondlock who she supported on tour and Fred Koller with whom she has co written this delightful track .

The album was recorded at the famous Dark Horse Recording Studios, home of artists such as Taylor Swift, Matchbox 20 and Tim McGraw, among others.

He’s been a stuntman, has trained horses, has been in over 250 full contact fights and aside from films has also appeared on several TV shows.

Many of his songs are written on a whim or in a dream, or through a psychic revelation.
Most have a tale behind the story of the song, and all are genre defying. The A-Listers are Billy “Thunder” Mason, Geoff Butterworth, Mark Corradetti, and Mark Thomas. A group of seasoned, talented musicians who have worked with the biggest names in the history of music, and have collectively worked with Tim McGraw, George Strait, Luke Combs, Zakk Wylde, Travis Tritt, Martina McBride, Tanya Tucker, Florida Georgia Line, and many, many more.

MY LUV NOTES (feat. STEPHANIE)Mama (S) My name is Stephanie of My Luv Notes. I am a writer of truths, a storyteller and a singer. In sharing my music with you, we share the emotion, the pain and the struggle along with the triumph, together. In that truth, when my words and music resonate within, you have a home in my music and in my heart forever. And I hope and pray I will forever remain in your heart. You are never alone. Take my hand and walk with me on this incredible journey called life. Here is my take on it.
One of the greatest losses in life is that of a mother. Perhaps because one of the greatest loves is that of a mother.
Feel the yearning and the pain of a child that cries for their mother in heaven to be the angel on their shoulder to wipe their tear away. The mother speaks to the child in the song as well for a heartfelt and emotional understanding is reached between them. The mother reaffirms her love for the child and promises that she will always be the angel on the child’s shoulder to wipe their tear away.
If this song makes you cry it’s because you can feel the love and pain in the song for the loss of a mother.
My Luv Notes Music and Boutique are committed to helping improve our communities. We are proud and blessed to inform you that a percentage of proceeds from our music or inspirational items from our boutique will be donated to charity. It’s about the bigger picture.

PAM JACKSONRadio paints the best pictures (S) Irish country-singer Pam Jackson has released her new single 'Radio Paints The Best Pictures'. Written & produced by award winning singer/songwriter Don Mescall, and recorded in PepperPot Studios, London.

Her voice appeals to the ordinary people who love simple country music - often known as traditional country. Pam Jackson has grown up absorbed in the recorded performances of her musical heroes. This is reflected by her voice in a very recognisable yet original style that is unique to her alone.
In 2009 Pam Jackson burst on to the country scene with her version of the Loretta Lynn classic "They Don't Make 'Em Like My Daddy Anymore". Later that year she spent time in Nashville and recorded two tracks from her "Guardian Angels" album in the world renowned "Tracking Room Studios".

All the best!

JASE LANSKYHella good time (S) The song is booked for public release by Key2Artist Promotions on the 12th April, but I’m that excited about the track I thought I’d send you a copy before the official release date.
I wrote ‘Hella Good Time’ while I was out in Texas, Queensland last year and have tried to drive that whole ‘country music’ feel while still maintaining a solid ‘rock’ base… and it’s pretty addictive J. We also recently shot the music video for the track and will be releasing that on the 12th April as well.
As an Australian artist and song writer I am extremely grateful to you and HAWKRIDGE STUDIO for getting behind independent artists like myself. I really hope you all enjoy ‘Hella Good Time’, and I’m pleased to say that it will be one of the tracks added to my forth coming album released later in the year.
Again, thank you so very much, and please feel free to contact me if you would like to know more about my music. Datum: 2019-04-05 Label: www.jaselansky.com ISRC: Releasedatum: 2019-04-12

ROY COSTPlease don´t play south of the border (S) Hello Mr. Ohlzon, I hope you are doing great in the beautiful nation of Sweden. I invite you to join some of us on Reverb Nation. My page is www.reverbnation.com/artist/roycost.
I thank you for playing the independents.
I wanted to email you one of my songs that is fairly traditional with a little touch of Spanish flavor; (Please Don't Play South Of The Border). I hope you like it and will give it some air play.
Maybe you haven't heard this Music Trivia tale before.
A Music Story For You: In the 60s Joe Reeves and I of the Shadows were shopping for a record label so we saw this ad in the phone book "University Records" so we looked up the address and knocked on the man's door. He was very friendly and said, "Sit down boys I want to play you the next big hit record; so he got his old cassette machine out and played a song and Joe looked at me and we kinda communicated quietly, "Naw, back and forth." It wasn't very long until.... sure enough that song was up to about # 6 on Billboard. Eventually it was a million seller by The Little Dippers entitled "Forever". One day the writer or producer had some recording time left over so he got the late Floyd Cramer and the Anita Kerr Singers to record the song with about 12 words and out came a million seller. I was proud to be a small part of that experience. I think Mr. Saddler was a car salesman or dealer but they put the record out on '''University Records''', quite a fairly tale.
Boy I learned back then..you just never knew when a song recorded in a bath-room or garage was gonna make a hit. Of course it was easier to break through radio back then. Floyd was like family to me and what a talent especially on ''Last Date''', '''Forever''', and something extra special is Floyd's version of the Rod Stewart song, "Have I Told You Lately" not to be confused with Floyd's other recording of the old standard "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You". (((Photo L. Roy Cost, middle Floyd Cramer, R. the late Al Crump)).
Instrumentals like Forever use to really be big in America as did story or humor or novelty songs but now they wouldn't get past the secretary at our big country FMs.
Roy Cost was influenced by the late Bob Luman who he use to listen to on the Louisiana Hayride. Cost recorded his first record in 1959 with America's version of 'The Shadows'. Over the years Cost has written several hundred songs and some of them can be heard on today's radio. His most popular record song came in 1959, 'East Of Tulsa' of which he recorded at Bill Black's new studio in Memphis, Tennessee. That recording got him into Nashville on Ralph Emery's WSM nightly show and on the legendary Grant Turner's early morning show also over WSM. The Tulsa song was a trucker favorite and was programmed by many stations across the south. He recorded with the famous Bill Black in 1965 at Bill's old studio on Chelsea Street, Memphis producing the record song, "You Can Count On Me". It became the # 1 song at Little Rock's KALO the second week and the flip-side, "Ketchy", an instrumental charted on KWHN, Ft. Smith, Arkansas and was programmed on the giant, KAAY in Little Rock. Other Cost phonograph records include "Family Man"/"Everytime I'm Kissing You"; "Anchorage Coal Fields"/"My Kind Of Woman"; "Susie Jones"/"Run Ruby Run"; "Drinking Beer And Shooting Pool"/"Your Love Is Here To Stay" and the record song, "You Made Me Cry".
His most played song of the modern age is "The Real You" and was a double # 1 on Sound-Click. These days Cost can be heard on radio and on various venues such as Reverb Nation.
Several artists have recorded Cost's songs including Allen Karl, Donna Ray, Kitty Houston, and Joyce Ramgatie of The Netherlands. Ramgatie recorded Cost's "I Just Can't Stand To Lose You"which was well received in Europe & Australia/NZ and Cost recorded the Ramgatie & Fred Irving song, "Old Huntin' Dawg'.
He has recorded duets with Kitty Houston and Joyce Ramgatie but they have never met personally Datum: 2019-03-29 Label: Vega Records www.roycost.com ISRC: Releasedatum:

AARON KANTOR: Vicariousley Aaron Kantor has the ?it? factor?that certain something that eludes so many of today's aspiring artists. It's not just Aaron's pure, natural country voice; it?s not just his undeniable talent for songwriting or his inviting presence on stage. ?It? is all of these talents and more ~ MP3.com
Boasting a lean and velvety, crooning deep voice ? a rarity in country music that comprises of less than a few handfuls that have mastered the low register, such as credited by Johnny Cash, Don Williams, George Strait, and Josh Turner ? country singer/songwriter Aaron Kantor carries the torch of authoritative old-school bass baritones, meshed with a modern approach ISRC: QZ7FL1950020, from the EP: AARON KANTOR
GOODnGONE: Momma don´t ISRC: USHM81898421, from the Album: FULL CIRCLE GOODnGONE is a rocking Texas country band that makes its home in the North Dallas area. Since forming in 2009, GOODnGONE has been bringing fresh modern edge country music to venues across North Texas and Oklahoma. GOODnGONE's original material combines modern country-rock guitar with a touch of classic twang.
?Momma Don?t? is about not giving up on someone who is struggling and keeping faith in them when they are not in a healthy state. The character feels he just about has it all worked out and is ready for change, so Momma Don?t give up on me now (I just about got this figured out).
HOLLY TUCKER: Country music won´t let me We?ve all had our hearts shattered a time or two. Some of those experiences leave such deep scars that simply hearing one sad, country song can take you right back to that exact moment. This new power ballad from Texas CMA Female Vocalist of the Year, Holly Tucker, does exactly that. From the very first, longing cry of the steel guitar, this song grabs listeners right by the heart. Featuring tender, but soaring, heart-wrenching vocals, Tucker also exposes her true vulnerability & authenticity as an artist by writing her own personal experience with heartbreak into this powerful song.

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

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

SEASON AMMONS: Daddy raised hell From the Album: NEON SIDE OF TOWN. True story, my Dad was a hell raiser, he was also one of the kindest, thoughtful and most charming guys you could?ve ever know Unfortunately, he just wrestled with too many demons and was never able to face his troubles. He struggled with being happy and living a fulfilling life. Growing up it wasn?t always easy to watch, especially within already strained family dynamics. The harsh reality is we don?t get to choose our family and at times have to live through and tolerate bad situations. Through it all my Mom always had a forgiving heart and a positive way of looking at things and she taught me to smile and walk with my head high. So, when I wrote this song with bittersweet memories it made me look back and see that sometimes parents just do the best they can with what they have at the time. If I hadn?t grown up the hard way like I did and learned from my Dad?s mistakes I wouldn?t be who I am oday.
Sixpack Holiday måste vara ett band som helt och fullt omfamnar tanken att saker och ting får ta sin tid, att vägen är mödan värd och allt det där. Hur kan man annars förklara att det gått elva år utan ett livstecken sedan skivdebuten »Songs From The Doghouse« (2008)?
Fast utan ett livstecken var inte riktigt rättvist. Sixpack har spenderat många timmar i replokalen, de har säkert spelat ett tiotal bejublade konserter och de har av och till tillbringar de senaste två åren i inspelningsstudion. Så det handlar inte om någon egentlig comeback eller återförening. Sixpack har funnits hela tiden, stretat på och har haft kul under tiden. Och blivit bättre och bättre.
Men nu är det äntligen dags att visa upp vad alla timmarna i studion resulterat i och till en början får vi två låtar, »Please Don't Ask« och »Randy«.
