Jade Jackson Announces Summer Tour Dates With Social Distortion

Country rock sensation Jade Jackson is set to release her anticipated debut album Gilded on May 19th via Anti-. The young California singer-songwriter, described as “part Hank Williams, part The Smiths” by Bluegrass Situation, was featured on the newest installment of the Walking The Floor podcast hosted by Foo Fighter guitarist Chris Shiflett.

Listen here: http://www.rollingstone.com/country/news/jade-jackson-chris-shiflett-talk-california-mike-ness-w481165

Jackson was also just profiled in the Huffington Post, which writes, “ For a young woman with a healthy appetite for life and a musical menu filled with enticing possibilities, Jackson and her delicious debut album should leave even a moody foodie with the most discerning taste craving for seconds.”

Jackson’s debut album Gilded was produced by Social Distortion frontman Mike Ness and powerfully merges the unflinching honesty and melodies of Lucinda Williams and Emmylou Harris with the raw energy of a musician influenced equally by George Jones, Hank Williams, The Cure and The Gun Club.

Jake Owen & Friends Bring The Beach To Nashville

On April 27th, Jake Owen brought his current tour to Ascend Amphitheatre in Nashville along with tourmates, LANco and Eric Paslay.

LANco started the evening out with a fun set, followed by Eric Paslay showing some smooth moves with “High Class“.

Then came Jake Owen to close out the evening.  As we readied for him to take the stage, a huge backdrop of a flamingo hid the set-up.  As the music started, the backdrop was slowly torn down to reveal Owen and his full band.

He entertained and kept the attention of the packed crowd downtown well into the evening.  Concertgoers sang, clapped, and danced along in delight at his high energy set.

Definitely a tour not to be missed as the native Floridian & friends KNOW how to entertain a crowd.

Lady Antebellum Gives Rolling Stone Weekly Preview Of Upcoming YOU LOOK GOOD World Tour

Photo credit: Eric Ray Davidson

Before Lady Antebellum launches their YOU LOOK GOOD WORLD TOUR presented by NABISCO, the multi-PLATINUM trio will share weekly exclusive content with Rolling Stone Country leading into its kickoff in Bakersfield, CA on May 26th. Beginning May 1st, the multi-PLATINUM trio will prepare for 65 shows across six different countries with behind the scenes moments from tour rehearsals, a candid group interview and more alongside openers Kelsea Ballerini and Brett Young.

The series begins with an off-the-wall video installment as Lady Antebellum puts Ballerini and Young through the ringer in their mock-up boot camp. To watch, visit Rolling Stone here: http://www.rollingstone.com/country/news/see-lady-antebellum-train-for-upcoming-tour-in-goofy-video-w479709
As “Lady Antebellum has taken the music industry by storm for the last decade…they continue to dominate” (Albuquerque News Journal) even after taking time to pursue solo projects last year. The trio’s “renewed energy” (People) will be heightened on the road during their YOU LOOK GOOD WORLD TOUR, as “Lady Antebellum has a new spring in their step” (The Augusta Chronicle). They will also propel their universal appeal when they trek to South Africa for the first time, along with monumental stops in Europe.
With a new sense of history and possibilities, Lady Antebellum’s sixth studio album HEART BREAK (Capitol Records Nashville), out June 9th, had Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott on a new mission — setting aside time to put themselves in new surroundings, and concentrate on writing and exploring musical endeavors with no distractions. Alongside producer busbee, their desire to shake things was made evident by the record’s debut lead track and current single, “You Look Good,” as the “soul-infused single makes good use of horns,” (Washington Post). Additionally, the trio had a hand in writing eleven songs on HEART BREAK, resulting in their most intimate and heartfelt work to date. The new music follows more than 18 million units, nine No. One hits, ACM and CMA “Vocal Group of the Year” trophies three years in a row, and countless other honors including Billboard Music Awards, People’s Choice Awards and Teen Choice Awards.

Lee Brice And Justin Moore Bring Successful Tour To A Close

Photo credit: Amy Fischer

31 shows. 120,000+ fans. Multiple sold-out dates. Lee Brice and Justin Moore closed out their co-headline AMERICAN MADE TOUR on Friday, April 28 wrapping up a four-month trek alongside buzz-worthy opening acts William Michael Morgan and Brett Young.


Kicking off January 13 in LaCrosse, WI, the AMERICAN MADE TOUR cut a wide path across the Midwest and South, drawing capacity crowds in multiple cities including Chicago, Columbia, and Atlanta. The acclaimed shows were packed with more than three hours of the superstars’ number one hits including Moore’s “You Look Like I Need a Drink,” “Lettin’ the Night Roll,” and “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away,” and Brice’s “A Woman Like You,” “Hard To Love,” “I Drive Your Truck,” and “I Don’t Dance.”


Positive reviews poured in with critics and fans praising the artists’ sets:


“The Lee Brice, Justin Moore AMERICAN MADE TOUR was one of the better shows we have seen this year,” says Allan Vella, President and CEO of Atlanta’s Fox Theater. “It was high energy and bursting at the seams with talented musicians. I have been telling my friends and colleagues, ‘You have to get this show into your market and your building.’”


“This is my third time seeing Justin, and man, does he kill it every time,” said WKDQ’s Travis Sams. “For those people who say that country music isn’t ‘country’ anymore, they must not have seen a Justin Moore show! Great crowd interaction. You can see how humbled he is by the success he has attained when the crowd sings every word to his songs.”


Continuing his rave about Brice’s signature “evocative” vocals (New York Times), Sams adds, “You can hear the conviction in his voice with every song he sings. Lee is hands down one of the best songwriters in the business, but not only that, he’s clearly a family man.”


Brice’s family even surprised him onstage during the Evansville, IN tour stop, making an unannounced appearance to celebrate Brice’s wedding anniversary. Brice was halfway through a solo performance of his yet-to-be-released single, “Boy,” when his two sons ran onstage, announcing that their mother was waiting in the wings. It was an emotional, electrifying moment, one of many highlights delivered throughout a tour featuring one of “country music’s heavy hitters,” (Rolling Stone Country).


This is a continuing theme of family on the road as Moore and wife Kate announced earlier this year that they are expecting their fourth child. The gender will be a surprise for the couple who already have three daughters. “To have the opportunity to become parents again, is such a blessing and one we are so thankful to God for. We pray for a healthy baby boy or girl.”


Opening act William Michael Morgan rounded out the bill for two months with the ACM-nominated Brett Young joining in March.  Together, the songwriters spent two final months “representing the best in country music,” (Mel Raines, SVP of Pacers Sports & Entertainment), bringing the AMERICAN MADE TOUR.
