OF EXPERTS ON THE NEXT EVOLUTION OF LIVE TELEVISION — ABC’s “RISING STAR”“Rising Star’s” Host and Experts to Appear for the First Time Together on “The 2014 Billboard Music Awards” on Sunday, May 18 at 8/7c on ABC

Internationally acclaimed singer, songwriter Josh Groban, country music superstar Brad Paisley, pop music sensation Kesha and hip hop artist and actor Ludacris have signed on to ABC’s “Rising Star,” which premieres Sunday, June 22 (9:00-11:00 pm ET/PT).  “Rising Star” completely reinvents the traditional singing competition as–for the first time ever–the audience has the final say in real time.  The show follows a group of aspiring singers as they perform live.  During the performances, viewers vote in real time via an App to determine if the singer will advance in the competition.   If the voting reaches a certain threshold, the performer moves on.  In addition, the performer can see how the voting is going throughout the performance, so the feedback is immediate and dramatic.
Groban, Paisley, Kesha and Ludacris will appear together for the first time on The 2014 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, May 18th at 8:00 pm on ABC, with Ludacris hosting the BBMA festivities.ABOUT JOSH GROBAN

The tour is Groban’s best-reviewed one to date.  An active arts education philanthropist and advocate, Groban is a member of Americans for the Arts Artists Committee and Groban’s Find Your Light Foundation helps enrich the lives of young people through arts, education, and cultural awareness.

acm zinepak

The Academy of Country Music and ‘ZinePak are proud to announce the release of the Official 2013 ACM Awards ‘ZinePak, a limited-edition package spotlighting 2013’s biggest names and brightest new stars.  The collection pairs a 120-page magazine with 35 songs on 2 CDs.  It also includes a ballot with this year’s ACM Awards nominees and an ACM bumper sticker. Leading up to the LIVE broadcast of the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday April 7, 2013 at 8:00 PM live ET/delayed PT  on the CBS Television Network, the ‘ZinePak will be  available at Walmart stores nationwide and Walmart.com. The package sells for $10.

 

“This year’s ACM ZinePak is just what the fans need to be ready when the ACM Awards air on April 7th,” said Lisa Lee, the Academy’s senior vice president of Creative, PR & Production. “They can learn all about this year’s nominees, plus they can discover some great new artists on the horizon. We’re so thankful to our record label partners for helping us create such a great collection to celebrate the ACM Awards.”

 

This is the third partnership between the ACM and ‘ZinePak. The previous two compilations (2011 and 2012) both debuted in the Top 20 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart.

All 35 artists lending songs to the compilation provided exclusive interviews, which can be found in the 120-page magazine accompanying the CDs. The magazine gives fans an inside look at the Academy, including the history behind the organization and the Awards, some of the most decorated artists in its history, and the important social and philanthropic activities happening year-round tied to ACM Lifting Lives.  It also includes interviews with GAC hosts Storme Warren and Suzanne Alexander, both longtime ACM veterans. The package also includes a ballot for fans to choose their picks in each category ahead of the Awards broadcast on April 7, and a collectible bumper sticker.

 

Production of the collection was overseen by New York-based entertainment company ‘ZinePak. ‘ZinePak co-founder Brittany Hodak said, “We are thrilled to partner with the Academy for the third straight year to create a ‘ZinePak for fans. This year’s package is definitely the best yet, including 35 songs and more than 500 exclusive interview responses from country artists. From what happens when Blake and Luke walk into a bar to the wildest thing they’ve ever seen happen at the award show, country’s superstars held nothing back when they answered the questions for this year’s ‘ZinePak.”

 

“We are proud to be able to offer this package to fans at the incredible value of $10,” added ‘ZinePak co-founder Kim Kaupe. “We’d like to thank our friends at ConAgra’s Child Hunger Ends Here program; Coors Lite, the official beer of the ACM Awards; and GAC – Great American Country – for their partnership on this project.

PERFORMERS

 

Brad Paisley has won 14 Academy of Country Music Awards, including Male Vocalist of the Year a record-setting five consecutive times, and wins in the Album of the Year, Video of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year categories.  His eighth studio album, Wheelhouse, is scheduled to be released April 9, and the debut single “Southern Comfort Zone” recently became his 21st #1 hit and “Beat This Summer” is his current single.  Paisley’s highly anticipated “Beat This Summer Tour presented by Cracker Barrel Old Country Store®” kicks off May 9 in St. Louis, Missouri and will hit more than 29 cities in the United States and Canada during the summer months.

 

Dierks Bentley is an ACM Award-winning singer/songwriter that has forged his own brand of country music combining classic country songwriting, influences of bluegrass instrumentation and the energy of rock & roll. Bentley’s sixth studio album Home, released in 2012, debuted at #1 and has spawned 3 chart-toppings hits, marking 10 career #1 songs as a singer and songwriter.  He is currently on the “Locked & Reloaded Tour” with longtime friend Miranda Lambert.  On April 6, Bentley will also headline the ACM Party for a Cause Festival, a 2-day outdoor music festival during “The Week Vegas Goes Country®.”

Hunter Hayes has six ACM nominations, including two in the Song of the Year category as the artist and composer, as well as in the Single Record of the Year category as the artist and producer for “Wanted.”  He rounds out his nominations with New Male Vocalist of the Year and Video of the Year for “Wanted.”  Hunter’s GRAMMY® nominated self-titled debut album has generated three smash hits, including his current single, “Somebody’s Heartbreak,” which has already entered the Top 5 and is certified Gold, as well as his near Triple Platinum-selling #1 single “Wanted.”  Hunter Hayes is a celebrated musician, songwriter and performer who currently is on the “Blown Away Tour” with Carrie Underwood.

Brantley Gilbert has two Academy of Country Music Award nominations this year – New Artist of the Year and New Male Vocalist of the Year, and his unique sound of Country-Rock-Soul has turned him into one of country’s hottest newcomers.  Gilbert’s sophomore project, the Gold-certified Halfway to Heaven Deluxe debuted at #2 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and produced two Gold #1 singles, “Country Must Be Country Wide” and “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do.”  As a celebrated songwriter, he has also penned three #1 hits – “My Kinda Party,” “Dirt Road Anthem,” and “Country Must Be Country Wide.”  Gilbert is currently playing to sold-out arenas in the U.K. and North America on his “Hell on Wheels Tour.”

 

Jana Kramer is the Academy of Country Music Award’s New Female Vocalist of the Year and is also nominated for New Artist of the Year as one of the freshest young voices in country music today.  Kramer, whose self-titled album was named “Best of 2012” by Billboard and iTunes, has impressively sold over a million tracks, including more than 100,000 of the new single “Whiskey” and over a half million of “Why Ya Wanna.”  In addition to her debut album premiering at #5, the success of “Why Ya Wanna” also earned Kramer the title of highest charting debut single from a new female artist since 2006 (previously held by Taylor Swift), as well as making her one of the fastest rising debut artists of 2012.  She will be on the road with Darius Rucker’s “True Believers Tour” in May, and will join the North American “Ten Times Crazier Tour” with Blake Shelton and Easton Corbin on July 19 in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

 

Florida Georgia Line has three Academy of Country Music Award nominations this year – New Artist of the Year, New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year and Vocal Duo of the Year.  Since releasing the top-selling, multi-week #1 debut single “Cruise,” which has since hit Double Platinum, this hot country duo has been quickly garnering buzz among fans, media and superstars alike.  Their debut album Here’s to the Good Times earned the highest debut album sales of 2012 for a new country artist, and they’re currently traveling North America with Luke Bryan on his “Dirt Road Diaries Tour.”

 

LL Cool J is an entertainment icon who has found great success crossing into multiple mediums.  A two-time GRAMMY® Award winner, recording artist, talented actor, author, NAACP Image Award winner, entrepreneur and philanthropist, LL continues to display his wide range of talents with every project.  He currently stars in the CBS hit primetime drama series, “NCIS: LOS ANGELES,” and continuing his musical expedition three decades after he first released music, LL is proudly prepping to release his latest project, Authentic.
