John Oates Announces New Album

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member John Oates has teamed with an amazing group of accomplished and rising stars in the Americana music world to bring his new album, Arkansas, to life. Scheduled for release on February 2, the project is his first for Thirty Tigers.  Arkansas is available for advance order through e-retailers and a Pledge Music campaign including autographed vinyl, limited edition exclusives, hats, shirts, and more.

The project originally began as a tribute to Oates’ idol, Mississippi John Hurt. During a series of Nashville recording sessions, it evolved organically to become a unique collection drawing from a wide range of Oates’ musical influences. Asked about the style and sound of Arkansas, John says, “It’s like Dixieland, dipped in bluegrass, and salted with Delta blues.”

The album was recorded at Addiction Studios in Nashville and produced by Oates and David Kalmusky who also engineered and mixed it. The sonic glue that cements the project is “The Good Road Band”. The impressive lineup consists of Sam Bush on mandolin, Russ Pahl on pedal steel, Guthrie Trapp on electric guitar, Steve Mackey on bass, Nathaniel Smith on cello, and Josh Day on drums and percussion.

With this incredible band, Oates shines a light on music from America’s past long before the birth of rock ‘n’ roll. Fresh interpretations include the Emmett Miller classic “Anytime” from 1924 as well as the Jimmie Rodgers tune, “Miss the Mississippi and You,” from 1932. Reimagined traditional Delta, country blues and ragtime selections salute legendary artists like Mississippi John Hurt and Blind Blake.

Two new original songs by Oates blend seamlessly with the traditional roots material, as well as John’s deep catalog of Hall and Oates hits. Taken together, Oates’ music becomes a retrospective of American popular song.

Thomas Rhett Brings “Marry Me” To Country Radio

Current American Music Awards nominee THOMAS RHETT’S newest single “Marry Me” ships to Country radio today, following a hot streak as “Craving You” and “Unforgettable” – the first two singles from his Billboard 200 chart-topper LIFE CHANGES (The Valory Music Co.) – soared to No. 1, each faster than the one before and with RIAA GOLD certification. Known for his “detailed style of songwriting” (Rolling Stone), Thomas Rhett often draws from personal experience when it comes to penning a new song, but for “Marry Me,” he flips the tables alongside hit co-writers Jesse Frasure, Ashley Gorley and Shane McAnally, presenting a non-autobiographical “heartbreaking twist” (Associated Press) to the track.

“‘Marry Me’ is one of my favorite tracks on the record,” said Thomas Rhett. “It’s my big ‘what if’ song. I wrote it from the perspective of if I had never told my wife how I felt about her all those years ago. I probably would have been sitting at her wedding watching her marry someone else. Heartbreaking thought and thankfully I DID tell her how I felt- but it makes for a great song concept that so many people can relate to.”

Thomas Rhett is set to perform LIVE from AT&T Stadium during the nationally televised halftime of the Dallas Cowboys game (3:30P CT/CBS) against the Los Angeles Chargers on Thanksgiving Day, kicking off The Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle Campaign. Donations to the campaign help provide shelter and meals for the homeless and hungry as well as Christmas toys for millions of children, in addition to numerous other social service programs The Salvation Army provides year-round.

In September, Thomas Rhett released his third album LIFE CHANGES, the biggest, boldest-sounding record of his career, filled with a diverse batch of songs united by the “consistency of their craft” (Variety) as he stretches his sound to new limits. Highlighting his “detailed style of songwriting” (Rolling Stone), the new release debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, marking the first Country release to take the top spot in 2017. This week, he wrapped an electric run in the UK which included capacity venues in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow and Belfast, marking 31 total sell outs on his in-demand debut headlining HOME TEAM TOUR this year. Thomas Rhett recently announced he’ll roll the momentum in to next year on his LIFE CHANGES TOUR 2018, set to kick off in April.

Just In Time For Veteran’s Day, Temecula Road Releases A Very Emotional Video

Country trio Temecula Road premiered their latest video, “Everything Without You” last week. The video, directed by Kyle Cogan, is the perfect accompaniment to the song and features the real-life love story of Lisa and Adam Franco, a retired Marine, who was deployed while Lisa was 5 months pregnant.  Between cinematic performance shots of Temecula Road, the couple’s love story is narrated via photos, home videos and personal texts.   The band was drawn to the couple’s story and felt the emotion that comes with having a loved one far away, especially for military families, is relatable and had this to say about the video, ‘Everything Without You’ touched us the first time we heard it, so we wanted the video to be very special too. After hearing the Adam and Lisa’s inspiring love story, we felt it was the perfect fit to highlight the sacrifices our troops endure every day to protect our country, and the strength of their loved ones at home patiently awaiting their return.“

Kelsea Ballerini Releases Highly Anticipated Sophomore Album Unapologetically – AVAILABLE NOW

The wait is finally over, as Grammy-nominated hitmaker Kelsea Ballerini releases her latest album Unapologetically. The project serves as the CMA “Female Vocalist of the Year” nominee’s sophomore release, and the follow-up to the Gold-certified debut, The First Time, which also produced multiple Platinum-certified hits.  After just 9 minutes, the official release the album hit No.1 on the iTunes Country Albums chart and is No. 3 on the All Genre Albums chart.

 

“Legends,” the lead single from Unapologetically, has continued to turn heads while currently racing up the charts. The track immediately charged its way into the Top 15 on the iTunes All-Genre Songs chart within 12 hours of its release. Additionally, her empowering anthem “Miss Me More” stormed its way to No. 1 on the iTunes Country Songs chart upon its release two weeks ago. Ballerini shared one of her favorite fan-made videos showing off their fierce sides lip-syncing the song on her Instagram.

 

Ballerini is also returning to her roots, with a very special show this past weekend in her hometown of Knoxville, Tenn. The singer/songwriter performed a full set at her high school, Central High, this past weekend. The show was highly centered around the encore song, “High School,” which is featured on Unapologetically. The reflective ballad was penned solely by Ballerini, inspired by her experiences at Central High.  The emotional night concluded with the “Peter Pan” singer donating $20,000 to the school for future music programs. In an Instagram post, she called this, “the most fulfilling thing I’ve ever been able to do.”

 

The talented songstress kicked off her album release week by announcing “The Unapologetically Tour,” which will begin next year. The must-see spectacle kicks off Feb. 8 in Birmingham, Ala. where fans will be treated to a unique set list packed with some of the country singer’s biggest hits like the upbeat “Love Me Like You Mean It” and the heartbreaking “Peter Pan” along with new songs from Unapologetically.

 

The album buzz has reached new heights, with recent features in Forbes, Entertainment Weekly, The New York Times, Paste Magazine and many more. Ballerini has also kicked her promotional efforts into high gear, making recent appearances on The Ellen Degeneres Show and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon while also gracing the cover of Parade Magazine in October. The country starlet will appear on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert tonight at 11:35pm ET (check local listings) and on the Nov. 8 edition of Good Morning America. CBS also recently announced that Ballerini will be the headliner for The Thanksgiving Day Parade, airing Nov. 23.

Three New Whiskies to Welcome Autumn

The world’s leading distiller of Scotch whisky, William Grant & Sons, is excited to highlight three new whisky releases just in time for the cooler months ahead.

Glenfiddich Winter Storm, part of the Glenfiddich Experimental Series of unusual and unexpected variants, is the first-ever single malt Scotch to be finished in ice wine casks. The combination of both pioneering liquids results in a crisp, premium whisky aged 21 years, imbued with a unique layer of sweetness and complexity. Taste the heightened candied sweets and oak flavor of Glenfiddich, complemented by mouth-watering tropical fruit notes and an underlying rich drying sensation from the ice wine cask finish. (SRP: $250) www.glenfiddich.com

 

The Balvenie Tun 1509 Batch 4 is the fourth bottling in the highly regarded Tun 1509 series that marries 23 casks – 13 traditional American oak barrels and 10 European oak sherry butts – in a true expression of whisky craft. The use of both traditional casks and Sherry butts, results in a complex and rich expression that has an initial sweetness that gradually develops into deeper richer oak with some dried fruits and a cinnamon and ginger spiciness. (SRP: $399) www.thebalvenie.com

 

Tullamore D.E.W., the original triple distilled, triple blend Irish whiskey, recently released Cider Cask whiskey. This new sophisticated spirit is a marriage between the craft of small-batch cider-making and Tullamore D.E.W’s legendary whiskey. This soon-to-be your new seasonal favorite, is the first whiskey to be finished in hard apple cider casks giving it a taste as rich as it looks with a lovely balance of oak, creamy malt and subtle fruitiness. (SRP: $39.99) www.tullamoredew.com

 

Bad Apple D.E.W.

1 ½ parts Tullamore D.E.W. Cider Cask

1 ½ parts Hard Apple Cider

½ parts fresh lemon juice

½ parts simple syrup

4-5 mint leaves

1 dash Angostura bitters

 

Add all ingredients to a mixing glass, fill with ice and shake. Double strain into rocks-filled highball. Garnish with mint sprig.

The team at William Grant & Sons asks that you please drink responsibly.

Nashville-Based Rock Band SWEETTALKER Releases “Black Magic” In Time For Halloween

Nashville-based roots rock band, SWEETTALKER, just released a new single, “Black Magic”, on October 26th.

The dark, riffy, hard driving rock song is a nod back to timeless classic rockers, punk and psychedelic rock bands.  The song is about being unable to shake the “spell” that an ex-lover casts upon you as they re-appear in your life just when you least expect it never quite allowing you to forget them as you are drawn back into their “web”.  Something I think most can relate to if you have ever had an ex you find difficult to get over when they keep re-appearing in your life.

They first hit the Nashville scene in early 2016, and can best be described as root rock revival of warm and vintage sounds filled with hard driving guitar riffs.

SWEETTALKER got their name from the mom of one of the band members saying out of frustration that they would probably become a car salesman one day because could sweet talk their way out of almost anything or into it as a young kid.  Looking for a catchy name, it just seemed to be the perfect fit for the band and it stuck.

SWEETTALKER have spent the past two years touring all over the Southeast and Midwest U.S., honing their craft and growing their fanbase.

Catch them in a city near you as they set out in support of their new single, “Black Magic”.

Album Review: Kelsea Ballerini | UNAPOLOGETICALLY

Picking up right where THE FIRST TIME left off, Kelsea Ballerini brings us her sophomore album, UNAPOLOGETICALLY, releasing Friday, November 3rd.

Unless you have been hiding under a rock for the last couple of years, you have no doubt witnessed the skyrocketing rise of Kelsea Ballerini in country music; everything from multiple #1 hits from her first release to her first headlining tour to CMA, ACM, and GRAMMY nominations.

Ballerini is a vibrant, sparkling star that has helped new female artists bust those doors open at country radio, which has been difficult for female artists to break through and get airplay in during recent years.  She is the first new female artist in years to achieve a #1 hit song, much less multiple #1 songs, off her debut album on Black River Entertainment.

This album covers the last two and a half years of my life in the order of how it happened. I released The First Time when I was 21. I was so new, and I was so excited to just be able to go out on radio tour and play shows. The things that I was going through in my personal life at the time I didn’t share; I wrote about them instead. So, this is the first time that I’m able to actually talk about my life and the amazing things that have happened – and the not so amazing things that have happened – over the last few years. I feel like being able to lay it all out as it happened, in order, honestly feels so liberating and freeing. Being able to sing that truth every night is going to be a such a big gift.

This album is no sophomore slump, as so many in the past have experienced.  As much as I loved THE FIRST TIME and wore it out in my car’s cd player, this album shows such growth and beautiful lyrical imagery from Ballerini that it has become my new favorite.

It is extremely-difficult for me to pick a favorite off of this 12-track release because I find something that I love in each and every song, but here goes:

“Graveyard” holds the strongest of lyrical imagery and this mid-tempo tune is probably my favorite as she sings of lost love that hurt her and not wanting to be “another heart in your graveyard”.

“Roses” is a mid-tempo tune that has that feel of exuberance as she looks back at how good a love once was with fond memories, but her heart has now healed and she is finally at a place in life where ready to move on.”

“End Of The World” will tug at your heartstrings as Ballerini sings of how she “thought the stars had lost their shine”.

“Unapologetically” brings Ballerini full circle as she sings of being “unapologetically in love” and how “it doesn’t phase me when they call me crazy”.  She is obviously singing about the love she has found in fiance, Morgan Evans, who is signed to Warner Music Nashville.

There is so very much to love about this album.  Ballerini shares her heart and her truth on this release as she brings you on her personal journey of heartbreak, personal growth, discovery of who she is, who she wants to be, and is living her life “unapologetically” out loud.  It is beautiful and a must-have for your music collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars.
