10-DVD Collection CMA Awards Live: Greatest Moments 1968-2015 Available For The First Time Ever

Time Life in conjunction with the Country Music Association is proud to announce the upcoming release of CMA Awards Live: Greatest Moments 1968-2015, an extensive 10-DVD set of many of Country’s musical moments that have made history over the years. Time Life will begin taking pre-orders Wednesday, Oct. 11, with a 30-minute infomercial promoting the package airing throughout the fourth quarter of 2017. CMA Awards Live will be officially released to retail early next year.

Since 1968, millions of Country Music fans tune in each year to the CMA Awards to see which of their favorites walk away with the most coveted awards in the industry. In addition to the presentation of the yearly accolades to the biggest stars in the Country format, the yearly telecast is famous for historic performances and collaborations – many of which are the first time legendary songs were featured on television. Outside of their original airings, these performances have never been commercially available.

The set includes 127 performances from five decades of the nationally-televised ceremony, with performances from many of the premiere artists in the genre – Glen Campbell, Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, Barbara Mandrell, Buck Owens and Kenny Rogers – all of which helped define the sound that brought popular appeal to Country Music.

CMA Awards Live: Greatest Moments 1968-2015 features unforgettable moments from the artists who have nurtured the sound over the past decade and taken the music to new heights, like Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, and Keith Urban.

Besides the performances, the set also includes bonus features and interviews with artists who have performed – and won – on the telecast over the years, including Naomi Judd and Charley Pride, as well as the last interview with the longest-serving CMA Executive Director, Jo Walker Meador, and CMA’s current Chief Executive Officer Sarah Trahern. Other moments include:

• Merle Haggard’s performance of the iconic “Okie From Muskogee,” the Single of the Year from 1970 – the same night that he was named CMA Entertainer of the Year.

• Dolly Parton and Kenny Roger’s riveting performance of “Islands In The Stream,” which opened up the 1983 telecast – the same year that the song topped the Country and Pop charts throughout the world.

• Alan Jackson’s 2001 world premiere performance of “Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning)” which captivated America following the tragic 9/11 attacks.

• CMA Entertainer of the Year winners Brooks and Dunn (1996) and Reba McEntire (1986) performing a passionate version of “Cowgirls Don’t Cry” in 2008.

• Alan Jackson and George Strait’s tender tribute to George Jones following his passing in 2013 with a soaring version of “He Stopped Loving Her Today,” a CMA Single and Song of the Year winner from 1980.

And, speaking of collaborations, there are plenty in the collection, like once-in-a-lifetime pairings of artists Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton and Tammy Wynette, from 1993 performing “Silver Threads and Golden Needles,” and an incredible performance from Miranda Lambert, Loretta Lynn, and Sheryl Crow of Lynn’s signature “Coal Miners’ Daughter” from 2010.

CMA Awards Live: Greatest Moments 1968-2015 also features many performances from some of music’s biggest stars from outside of the format, including Jimmy Buffett, Rita Coolidge and Lionel Richie. Also included with the collection is a 44-page collectible booklet featuring Award winners and the history of the CMA Awards shows.

Brown’s Deluxe Edition of
Self-Titled Debut is Available Everywhere Now

Photo credit: Brian Jamie

Country star Kane Brown’s Platinum-certified “What Ifs” featuring Lauren Alaina takes the #1 slot this week on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and puts an end to Sam Hunt’s hold on the #1 position after 34 consecutive weeks. #2 on Billboard’s country airplay, on demand audio streams and digital country song charts, Brown’s hit single has momentum yet to crest.

Released officially October 6th, Kane Brown’s Deluxe Edition of his self-titled debut album is available everywhere now. Country’s best-selling new-artist debut of the past two years, the album now includes four additional songs on the deluxe version and is trending #1 on the iTunes country chart, as has every album, EP, single and instant grat track Brown has ever released.


About Kane Brown

Even before signing his record deal in early 2016, rising star Kane Brown had already established a passionate online following in the millions.  Almost immediately, the RCA Nashville/Zone 4 singer/songwriter was making chart history with the release of Chapter 1, which became the highest-debuting country EP of the Nielsen SoundScan era and featured the RIAA Gold-certified “Used to Love You Sober.”  His Kane Brown full-length released in December 2016, debuting at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums and Top 10 on the Billboard 200 all-genre chart. Kane Brown also claimed the #4 spot as the best-selling new-artist album debut of 2016, in any  genre. The October 6, 2017 release of the 15-song Kane Brown Deluxe Edition builds on that success with four new tracks including “Setting the Night on Fire—a duet with Brown’s hero and RCA labelmate Chris Young—and “Found You,” a track that entered Billboard ’s Country Digital Song Sales chart at #1.  Earlier this year, Brown impressively earned his first ACM award nomination as New Male Vocalist of the Year, as well as a CMT Music Awards Breakthrough Video of the Year nod for “Used to Love You Sober.”  In addition to headlining his own series of sold-out tour dates, Brown was tapped for Florida Georgia Line’s 2016 summer tour and is currently a special guest on Jason Aldean’s They Don’t Know Tour.  Beyond his flourishing music career—and inspired by his personal experiences and a desire to lend his voice as a platform—Brown recently partnered with Make Room, the nation’s leading organization addressing the rental housing crisis in the U.S.   www.kanebrownmusic.com

CMT Partners With The Creator Of “The Hills” And “Laguana Beach” For New Unscripted Series “Music City” 

CMT just announced the greenlight of new docu-series “Music City” from famed unscripted executive producer Adam DiVello, the creator of iconic shows such as “The Hills” and “Laguna Beach”, through DiVello’s Done and Done Productions banner. “Music City” reunites CMT and Lionsgate, who partnered last year to save fan-favorite “Nashville.”

“Music City” follows a group of young emerging artists chasing their dreams of success in the music industry, while struggling to balance their personal lives and relationships. Filmed in Nashville, TN, the eight-episode series is slated to premiere early next year alongside “Nashville,” which returns for new episodes in January.

Production on “Music City” comes on the heels of a strong year for CMT, which has posted ten consecutive months of year-over-year ratings growth with Adults 18-49 and with Women 18-49. Quarter-to-date, CMT is up +17% from year ago with Adults 18-49 and up +20% with Women 18-49. (L+SD, CMT Total Day).

“Music has always played a huge role in the storytelling process of my past series,” said creator/executive producer Adam DiVello, “and with ‘Music City,’ we’ll take that element to another level, as we document the real-life struggles, heartaches, and drama of those chasing their dreams of stardom. Nashville is such an exciting city and I can’t wait to share with the world the stories of this incredibly talented cast we’ve put together.”

“After a banner year of growth, we’ve enlisted one of the industry’s most influential and talented producers to help guide our ever-expanding fanbase deeper inside our beloved hometown,” said Frank Tanki, General Manager of CMT and TV Land. “Like its sister series, ’Nashville,’ ‘Music City’ will spotlight a group of young artists as they grapple with love, life and the pursuit of their dreams through the incomparable lens of the creator of some of the most memorable series of the last 20 years. We welcome all the fans of ‘Laguna Beach’ and ’The Hills’ that are now our target audience into the world of ‘Music City,’ and CMT as a whole.”

“We are very excited to work with our incredible partners at CMT to delve deeply into the lives of six residents of Music City,” said Jennifer O’Connell, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, Lionsgate. “While cinematically capturing the beauty of Tennessee’s booming state capitol and its vibrant hot spots, executive producer Adam DiVello again has brought together a special mix of creative twentysomethings as they all juggle new opportunities, relationships, jobs and unexpected challenges.”

DiVello first gained prominence as a producer on “Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County,” which he also developed. The series, which introduced a new look and style to reality television that quickly caught on with viewers, followed the personal lives and exploits of a group of high school students and paved the way for DiVello’s highly successful spin-off, “The Hills,” which ran for six seasons on MTV. Focusing on the drama-filled lives and careers of several young women including “Laguna Beach’s Lauren Conrad, the show became one of the most talked-about series on television and led to another spin-off, “The City,” which DiVello also created and executive produced.

“Music City” is produced by Done and Done Productions in association with Lionsgate. Adam DiVello serves as creator and executive producer.

Jerrod Niemann Releases New Album, ‘This Ride’; Celebrates At Hemingway’s Bar & Hideaway

Jerrod Niemann just released his fourth studio album and first on Curb Records after signing his new deal with them entitled, ‘This Ride’, on October 6th.

This release is his most adventurous yet with a strong indie rock influence throughout.  He’s taking chances and doing his own thing, which works well for him and something he is known for.  I don’t think those fans yearning for a traditional country sound will really appreciate this newest album due to the heavy influence of indie rock infused with contemporary country.  However, for fans looking for good music that is well-written and looking for an escape from the everyday reality of life, it will be right up their alley.

Be sure to buy it! It’s available everywhere that music is sold.

I particularly enjoyed the opportunity to hear the new album in advance of the release at the album launch celebration that was held at Hemingway’s Bar & Hideaway in Nashville just prior to the album dropping on October 6th.

It was the perfect setting to host the celebration that included all of the songwriters that he collaborated with on this album, label, team, friends, and media.  This upscale bar/restaurant is new to Nashville with a drink menu and rustic-chic decor inspired by the renowned writer, Ernest Hemingway.  I particularly enjoyed the Steve McQueen and the daiquiri.

I found the food to be incredibly-tasty and adventurous.  My personal favorite food they served were the brussels sprouts that were savory and oh-so-flavorful.  I helped myself to 2 servings of it.  Seriously, you must give them a try!

It’s nestled in an industrial area off the normal beaten track near downtown Nashville.  With the way Nashville is growing, I have no doubt more businesses will be popping up in the same area.

Located at 438 Houston Street in Nashville.  Be sure to check it out if looking for something a bit different and an escape just like Jerrod Niemann’s new album, ‘This Ride’.  Both will be well-worth your time.

‘This Ride’ track listing & songwriters:

  1. “Zero to Crazy” (Ashley Gorley, Chris DeStefano, Shane McAnally)
  2. “But I Do” (Josh Osborne, Jimmy Robbins, Jon Nite)
  3. “Leavin’ a Trail” (Corey Crowder, Luke Dick, Cole Taylor)
