Caanan Smith Releases New Single, “Like You That Way”

Mercury Nashville’s Canaan Smith spent the last few months on the road touring throughout the US and Europe, bringing his energetic live show to crowds across the globe. Noted for his “vocals… charisma and the performance ability to be one of the biggest stars in Country music” (Entertainment Focus), Canaan’s new single “Like You That Way,” goes for adds today at Country radio, following Friday’s world premiere of the song on People.com. 


The upbeat Summer anthem has already garnered attention for its catchy lyrics, which include a lyrical nod to one of country’s leading ladies. As revealed to People.com, Canaan credits “my wife [Christy] and Miranda Lambert. I live with one and I listen to the other,” as part of the inspiration for the song.


“Like You That Way” follows Canaan Smith’s debut album, Bronco, which debuted in the Top 5 on Billboard’s Country Albums Chart and features the RIAA Platinum-Certified # 1 hit “Love You Like That.” The breakout smash “Love You Like That” marked one of the top streaming tracks from all new artists in country music, besting many songs from the genre’s superstars. After his own headlining tour of the US in the fall of 2016, Canaan embarked on an extensive sold-out tour of the U.K. with London based breakout country duo, The Shires.  While there, his album skyrocketed to #3 on the U.K Charts. He recently returned to the UK in March 2017 for the C2C Festival, where he was consistently ranked as one of the festival’s best live acts. Canaan’s reputation as a road warrior and one of the top live performers in country music has earned him touring slots with Dierks Bentley, Brantley Gilbert and Kip Moore, where he played well over 400 shows for more than a million fans. Named a “One to Watch” by The Huffington Post, Spotify, Yahoo Music and USA Today, Canaan continues his run with a full list of US and European headlining tour dates.

April Showers Brings May Flowers as Powerhouse Country Duo Williams Honor Prepares for Next Single Release With No Umbrella

Asbury Park, NJ’s first ever country duo continues to build the WHArmy nationally as Gordon Brown and Reagan Richards gear up for a busy summer ahead. No Umbrella, the next single from the duo’s self-titled debut album, has officially been released to country radio today (Tuesday, April 18) and fans can download it on all digital platforms.

Once again, Williams Honor is showing the world that Asbury Park isn’t too far from Nashville. “We’re really excited about the release of this song,” says Richards. “It was a song that seemed to resonate with our fans since day one. We wrote this in Nashville right on Music Row with (Billboard hot country artist) Cyndi Thomson and we knew right away that we stumbled on something special.”

This talented duo is gearing up for exclusive private events in New Jersey for the next few months to promote No Umbrella and will be doing a media tour in Nashville the week of the release with appearances all over town. They just wrapped up their very first music video for their previous release, Send It To Me (#55 on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart). This video showcases their favorite places, streets and venues on the Jersey Shore and Nashville. Shot during last year’s CMA Music Festival by Nashville’s Over The Cumberland production team, the scenes filmed along downtown Broadway showcases prominent venues like The Ryman Auditorium, Tootsie’s, and Bridgestone Arena. While in Asbury Park, the duo shot with Cinecall filmaker George McMorrow along Cookman Ave and at classic Jersey Shore venues like The Saint, McLoones on the Asbury Boardwalk, The Wonderbar, and The Stone Pony. The official video will be released next month and sneak peaks were already shown on the NJNews12 broadcast which was aired April 15th and 16th.

ABOUT WILLIAMS HONOR: Straight from Asbury Park, NJ’s legendary music scene, comes an unstoppable collision of likeminded influence, chemistry and a true love for country music. The duo consists of powerhouse singer and performer Reagan Richards and producer/multi-instrumentalist Gordon Brown. After spending years separately in Nashville and never running into each other, they both were writing, recording and touring for other projects and artists. The two met while doing a benefit for Hurricane Sandy victims in NJ and fueled by the memory of their fathers, who were both lost way too soon, Williams Honor was born the summer of 2014.

This duo wrapped up an extensive national radio tour last year, visiting close to 40 stations and performing shows in many of the cities they traveled to. They had their first live network feature interview and performance on NBC’s Today in Nashville and participated in Nashville’s Country Radio Seminar earlier this year doing endless media interviews, appearances and performances. Their debut album is available wherever digital music is sold, iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play, etc. and signed physical CD’s are available on their website.

Delta Rae Debuts “A Long And Happy Life” At Radio Today

Pictured (L-R): Brittany Hölljes, Grant Emerson, Ian Hölljes, Liz Hopkins, Mike McKee, Eric Hölljes Single Image Courtesy of The Valory Music Co.  

Fueled with a passionate melodic delivery of honest lyrics, DELTA RAE debuts “A Long And Happy Life” today. The new single is available now and marks the six-piece Durham, NC-based band’s first release on Big Machine Label Group’s imprint The Valory Music Co.

Brothers Eric and Ian Hölljes penned the buoyant “A Long And Happy Life,” offering fans a soundtrack to jumpstart their summer with an earnest hope that the best seasons are still to come. The song name comes from a book of the same title written by Ian’s dear friend, the late Reynolds Price. Lyrics from three other literary works – William Styron’s Lie Down In Darkness, Pat Conroy’s The Prince of Tides and The Water Is Wide – are woven throughout as homage to the Southern storytelling they admire.

With roots firmly planted in the South, Liz Hopkins and Brittany Hölljes front the robust group with their sultry harmonies rounded out by Eric (vocals, piano) and Ian (vocals, guitar) as well as Mike McKee (drums) and Grant Emerson (bass). Delta Rae chose their moniker from a mythical story the Hölljes siblings’ mother crafted about a Southern girl of the same name who summons the Greek gods to earth. The band’s sound defies parameters – a little bit Americana and Gospel combined with equal parts Country, Rock and Bluegrass – being most influenced by their geographical location as they’ve traversed the globe and experienced life.

Since forming in 2009, Delta Rae has graced stages at esteemed festivals such as Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits and more with their larger-than-life live show. The band will headline several dates throughout their A LONG AND HAPPY LIFE SUMMER TOUR 2017, which kicks off in May. Tickets go on sale at DeltaRae.com beginning this Friday, March 17.

Lady Antebellum Is Back! Brand New Single, Tour, And New Album On The Way

In case you missed it, Lady Antebellum is back with a brand new single just released to country radio called “You Look Good”, a new album on the way, and a tour planned.

I was lucky enough to be one of the few who got to see them perform together live for the first time in public in over a year for a secret show that they streamed live on Facebook at OZ in Nashville.  It was a fantastic show that I wanted to basically go on forever! Check out the video clip below from the performance.

The new song “You Look Good” is an midtempo country song with just a touch of 70’s funk to it complete with a horn section. Just a very cool vibe, and it feels like they are having fun again after a break they took to work on some solo projects. The new album is slated to release later this year.

They also announced a new worldwide tour this year that will include Kelsea Ballerini and Brett Young. Catch them on the road, it’s going to be a good one.
