Tin Pan South 2013 Adds Two Shows At 3rd & Lindsley

Tin Pan South

The 21st Annual Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival has added two very special shows at the popular 3rd & Lindsley venue, aptly titled “From Texas to Tennessee” and “Celebrating the Music of ABC’s ‘Nashville’,” on Tuesday, April 2, 2013. The addition of the new shows brings the total number of venues to 10 promising the best songwriters the world has to offer.

“From Texas To Tennessee”will kick off at 6:00 pm, and will feature Wade Bowen, Radney Foster, Jon Randall and Bruce Robison for a celebration of the bond between the Lone Star and Volunteer states. Separately, these Texas-bred singer/songwriters are impressive; together they’re almost unbelievable. Here to prove that is, Foster (of Foster & Lloyd and such solo hits as “I’m In,” “Raining On Sunday,” “Just Call Me Lonesome,” “Nobody Wins”), who is joined by fellow Texans Bowen (“Don’t Break My Heart Again,” “God Bless This Town,” “Try Not To Listen,” “When It All Goes Down”), Randall (“Am I The Only One,” “Drink On It,” “Whiskey Lullaby,” “She’s So California”) and Robison (“Travelin’ Soldier,” “Angry All the Time,” “Wrapped”).

The video vividly captures Janson’s exhilarating live performance and innate sense of humor when he shows off what would happen if he did rather than if he don’t. “Better I Don’t” will be featured on his debut full-length album produced by Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band), which is expected for release later this year via Bigger Picture Group.

Craig Campbell Sets May 7 Release Date For Sophomore Album ‘Never Regret’

Also Sets Plans To Host Cornhole Challenge For The TJ Martell Foundation

 Craig Campbell

After selling more than a half-million tracks from his debut effort, Bigger Picture artist Craig Campbell today revealed on his Facebook page the street date and cover artwork for his highly anticipated sophomore album, NEVER REGRET. The twelve-song project, which features the evocative lead single “Outta My Head,” will join the ranks of country music hit-makers Lady Antebellum and Pistol Annies to release on May 7, 2013. On this second record, Campbell continues to work with Grammy Award winning producer Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band) and CCMA Album of The Year producer, Matt Rovey.

Shortly after the release of his sophomore record and in honor of his late father, Craig will host the inaugural Celebrity Cornhole Challenge to benefit the TJ Martell Foundation’s colon cancer research efforts. The announcement of June’s event comes at a timely moment as National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month is coming to a close. “This tournament will benefit colon cancer awareness and research, which I am very passionate about,” states Campbell. With a smile in his eyes, he continues, “my father passed away at the age of 36 from the disease, and what better event to benefit colon cancer care than a ‘Cornhole’ tournament.” Just last week, Craig joined Alan Jackson to perform at the Stars Go Blue concert in Nashville to benefit the Colon Cancer Alliance.
