Tim Atwood will be live at 2pm (CT) on the Ernest Tubb Record Shop Facebook page and will air on 650 WSM and wsmonline.com at 12am (CT)

Country music entertainer Tim Atwood will host the world famous Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree on Saturday, June 20th. While maintaining social distancing and upholding CDC guidelines, there will not be a live audience present; however, viewers can watch the taping live at 2pm CT on Facebook.

“You can expect an all new show from me this Saturday. I am excited to announce that I will perform many of the songs from my upcoming CD ‘Who I Am’ this weekend. I think it’s my best music yet,” Atwood confides, “and what a thrill to debut my new music on the Midnite Jamboree. The Midnite Jamboree is a part of our heritage–our musical thread–that connects us to our past and propels us into the future. I want to thank David McCormick and his crew for keeping this tradition alive.”

Never one to sit still for long, Atwood has been in the recording studio wrapping up his fourth studio album “Who I Am,” slated for an October 2020 release. “Who I Am” showcases Atwood’s versatility as a writer and a performer as he takes his fans on a musical journey that includes his self penned, country shuffle “Migraine Heartache” as well as Delbert McClinton’s soulful anthem “Sending Me Angels.” Atwood has never been an artist who readily fits into any one box. Instead he relishes his love of playing outside the box.

“‘Who I Am’ represents who I am as an artist and as a person,” Atwood explains. “My new project is both playful and passionate. With the selection of each of the 14 songs on this album I was true to myself. Every song on ‘Who I Am’–even the sad songs–speak to my spirit.”

During his thirty eight years on the Grand Ole Opry, Tim performed alongside nearly four decades of country music hit makers including Loretta Lynn, George Jones, Marty Robbins, Jim Ed Brown, Jeannie Seely, Tammy Wynette, Dolly Parton, The Oak Ridge Boys, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Garth Brooks, Vince Gill, Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift.

Available now on Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, KOBO and in Paperback on July 31

Swiss country music singer-songwriter and author Chris Regez has released his highly anticipated first novel ‘The Songwriter – Following The Sound Of Love,’ (ISBN: 9781098313746) which is now available through Amazon and Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, KOBO and other digital formats, as well as in paperback on July 31 in both English and German. After recording his first three albums in Nashville, Chris returned to Music City again and again. In 2017 one more trip inspired him to start writing a novel about spontaneous passion and running away to Music City to chase a dream when that dream is the only thing left. Regez opens this rare read with “Girlfriend gone. Job gone. Everything gone,” proving that in the music industry, when you have hit an all time low, you have the ingredients for the perfect song, or in this case, the perfect novel.

“‘The Songwriter – Following The Sound Of Love’ is a music novel that depicts the music business in Nashville in great detail,” says author Chris Regez. “After the German version sold so well, I thought it would be best to translate my music novel in English and release it for others to enjoy!”

Regez illustrates the music business in Nashville with stellar detail and immerses the reader in a fast-paced story. A musical journey through Nashville’s most famous landmarks and even some hidden gyms that aren’t public knowledge provides that each reader, no matter where they are located around the world, are taken on a seemingly familiar adventure. Serving as an ode to ambition, ‘The Songwriter – Following The Sound Of Love’ encourages all to go after a dream until it becomes a reality like the main character in the novel. Researching every aspect of the music industry from songwriting to production, Regez has left no stone unturned and draws each reader into intricate notes of love, integrity, friendship, resilience, hope and disappointment. Mix this intellect with romance and the outcome is a novel unlike anything the world has ever seen.

‘The Songwriter – Following The Sound Of Love,’ can be found at Amazon KINDLE, Barnes & Noble / NOOK, and KOBO.

Through Legacy Recordings (the catalog division of Sony Entertainment)

Nashville, Tenn. – For the first time since her passing in 2015, Lynn Anderson fans now have access to two of her iconic albums that have just been re-released to all digital platforms through Legacy Recordings. Anderson’s digitally remastered album ‘Cry,’ was released on March 6th and ‘Listen To A Country Song‘ will be released on March 20. The fan-favorite ‘Top Of The World‘ has been confirmed for release, with a street date still to be determined.

Ranked among the most admired and trailblazing entertainers in America throughout her six-decade career, Lynn Anderson’s sparkling vocals brought a new level of sophistication and glamour to country music. Her groundbreaking pop-country sound helped her become one of the first female country artists to achieve mass crossover appeal. Many firsts were achieved throughout Anderson’s career; some of which broke social barriers. Anderson was the first female country singer to perform on The Tonight Show, first to headline and sell out Madison Square Garden and the first female to win an American Music Award. Lynn repeatedly delivered chart topping songs, such as “(I Never Promised You A) Rose Garden,” and was named Billboard’s Artist of the Decade for the 70s. Too timeless to be forgotten, events and celebrations are in the works to honor the classic hits and sweet southern personality that Anderson engraved in hearts across the world.

“Lynn Anderson was an icon to millions around the world, but to me she was mom,” says daughter, Lisa Sutton. “It is so exciting to have two of her classic albums re-released through Sony Legacy during a time when we need it the most. Until now, they were only available on vinyl. This is a wonderful way for old fans and new ones to come together through music. Just stay tuned, because this is only the beginning!”

Shane Owens closes out Country Radio Seminar hosting the second longest running live radio show in history.

Announces new single, “Love Me To Death” as the next release from latest album, ‘Thankful For Country Music.’

Neo-traditional country music artist and Alabama native, Shane Owens, will host the world famous Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree at the Troubadour Theatre on Saturday, February 22nd.  Shane will take the airwaves by storm with a wide variety of songs from the classic sounds of country music, to brand new songs featured on his latest album, Thankful For Country Music.

Saturday will mark the 3,801 broadcast of the Midnite Jamboree, the second longest running live radio show in history, following only the Grand Ole Opry.

“I am so excited to be appearing on the legendary Midnite Jamboree,” Owens declares. “This will be my first time hosting the historic radio show. I can’t wait to share our music and experience the atmosphere of great country music and the tradition that lives on in that theatre. Many of the greats have played on the Midnite Jamboree such as Loretta Lynn, Alan Jackson, Marty Stuart, Garth Brooks, and even Elvis. Now, I get to be a part of this show that is still going strong after seven decades.”

As part of the historic evening, Owens proudly announces his special guest to be none other than fellow Alabamian and previous ACM nominee, Ashton Shepherd.

Shepherd is as country as they come,” Owens remarks. “I have always loved her music and am so excited she can join us Saturday night!”

While participating in the Country Radio Seminar, Owens continues to promote his latest single “Hard Luck Girl,” as well as his new album Thankful For Country Music. Known for being one of the few modern day country artists who still pays homage to the old-school classics, Owens is committed to keeping the true sounds of country music alive.

About Shane Owens:
Named by Rolling Stone Country as one of the “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know,” and awarded 2018 Music Row Independent Artist of the Year, Shane Owens has been building a strong following across the Southeast for more than a decade. His powerful vocal range combined with the emotional lyrical content of his songs has made him a favorite of fans, critics, and his fellow artists alike. After starting his career by opening shows for dozens of major stars in the mid-2000s, the baritone performer attracted the attention of Nashville music executives, and he soon landed a record deal. However, with all the changes in the music industry at the time, his album was shelved and never released. Just like the ‘Never Give Up’ mantra of his lyrics, Owens picked himself up and moved on, thanks to famed producer James Stroud (Tim McGraw, Aaron Lewis, Clint Black), country music legend Randy Travis, who co-executive produced his first album, Where I’m Comin’ From, and Amerimonte Records. Never one to sit still for long, Owens followed up with his most recent release It’s A Southern Thing and is currently impacting at radio with his latest single “Hard Luck Girl” from his latest album, Thankful For Country Music.

CELEBRATES 20TH ANNIVERSARY WITH SOME OF
COUNTRY MUSIC’S BIGGEST STARS’ RECORDINGS

Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, The Charlie Daniels Band, Asleep at the Wheel, and David Allan Coe Recordings Turned Into AXS-TV Specials

In 1998, in partnership with Smith Music Group, led by Rick Smith, Sr., Billy Bob’s Texas began recording live performances from select artists taking the stage of the award-winning nightclub to be part of their Live at Billy Bob’s Texas series. The series launched with back to back recordings of Pat Green and Merle Haggard. Now, in 2018, the famed series is celebrating its 20th Anniversary.

“The Live at Billy Bob’s recordings give music fans who haven’t been to The World’s Largest Honky Tonk an opportunity to hear and feel the energy of a live show,” says Billy Bob’s VP of Marketing, Pam Minick. “For those who have experienced it in person, it’s another chance to relive it all over again. The series really captures the diversity of Billy Bob’s as we’ve recorded everything from Texas music newcomers to country music legends.”

Artists who have participated in the series range from national country music stars like Tanya Tucker, Roy Clark, T. Graham Brown, Exile, Johnny Lee, Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers, Collin Raye, Mark Wills, Lynn Anderson, Joe Diffie, Janie Fricke, Earl Thomas Conley, Eddy Raven, Michael Martin Murphey, Doug Stone, T.G. Sheppard and John Conlee to the biggest names on the Texas music scene including Cross Canadian Ragweed, Jack Ingram, Jason Boland & the Stragglers, Kevin Fowler, Wade Bowen, Randy Rogers Band, Stoney LaRue, Charlie Robison and more.

Billy Bob’s Texas is known for making cameo appearances in many music videos and several movies, but the Live at Billy Bob’s Texas series made its way to the television screen with Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, The Charlie Daniels Band, Asleep at the Wheel, and David Allan Coe’s concert recordings filmed and aired on AXS-TV, which continue to re-air.

“It was such an honor and thrill to record my CD, Live at Billy Bob’s, because I could take that story all across the country, raving about the biggest honky-tonk in America! – Janie Fricke

“I remember recording my Live at Billy Bob’s project. There was a huge crowd there that night and they were hootin’ & hollerin’. It continues to be one of our best selling CDs and people tell me all the time how much they like it! Thanks to Smith Music Group and Billy Bob’s! – T. Graham Brown

DIERKS BENTLEY CONTINUES ONE OF THE MOST AUTHENTIC JOURNEYS IN COUNTRY MUSIC WITH NINTH STUDIO ALBUM THE MOUNTAIN – AVAILABLE JUNE 8TH

DIERKS BENTLEY CONTINUES ONE OF THE MOST AUTHENTIC JOURNEYS IN
COUNTRY MUSIC WITH NINTH STUDIO ALBUM THE MOUNTAIN
– AVAILABLE JUNE 8TH

The Inspiring 13-Track Climb Features Collaborations with Brothers Osborne, Brandi Carlile and
World Renowned Bluegrass Musicians Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas and Tim O’Brien

THE MOUNTAIN is Available for Pre-Order Tomorrow (4/13) with An Instant Download of Title Track

Multi-PLATINUM selling singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley has built a reputation as both a forever-young drifter and a dedicated family man, put in millions of miles on headlining tours and taken the fearless stylistic detours of a truly authentic artist. He continues that journey with his highly anticipated ninth studio album, THE MOUNTAIN (Capitol Records Nashville), set for release June 8th. Reaching a new creative high, Bentley co-wrote 10 of the 13 new tracks that are unified by themes of presence and positivity, and range in style from textured rock to acoustic folk, feeling both rooted and expansive at the same time.

THE MOUNTAIN’s story begins in the Rocky Mountain resort town of Telluride, Colorado, which every summer plays host to a celebrated bluegrass festival. Owing to his well-documented love of the genre, Bentley has attended the festival multiple times over the years, always making a point to slow down and tune back in to the world around him. But after performing on the festival’s main stage in 2017, the idyllic surroundings became more than a much-needed getaway.

“I found myself there, constantly reaching for my guitar,” Bentley said. “It was like a gravitational pull. That town and those people just make you want to be creative, I couldn’t describe it. I was like ‘How do I tell everyone in Nashville this is what I want to write about?’ I realized I couldn’t bring it back, so I had to take everyone out there.”

Returning that August with six of his most trusted songwriting collaborators, Bentley and his fellow ‘Telluwriters’ all bunked up in a small house, explored the area and dug deep into the peaceful, reflective vibes he was feeling. They had five days to work with and were hoping to write eight songs…but ended up with nearly twice that number, forming the core of the record. Bentley returned to Telluride with his production team Ross Copperman, Jon Randall Stewart and Arturo Buenahora Jr to a tucked-away hideout called Studio in the Clouds last November to record. Perched high on a mesa, its tracking room overlooking the endless Rocky Mountain landscape, THE MOUNTAIN rose up in earnest.

“For me it’s the best of both worlds, and it feels like something new. It’s powerful but also happy, with acoustic sensibility mixed in with the big sounds I like to have for the road,” Bentley added. “They are the songs I’d play for somebody to say, ‘This is who I am right now.’”

1. Burning Man (Feat. Brothers Osborne)
2. The Mountain
3. Living
4. Woman, Amen
5. You Can’t Bring Me Down

After 15 years in Country music, the mountains Bentley has climbed could form a range of their own. To date, the Arizona native has scored 17 No. Ones and 13 GRAMMY nominations – including at least one stemming from each of his last six albums. Bentley has amassed more than one billion digital streams, countless additional nominations from the ACM, CMA and Billboard Music Awards and has been a Grand Ole Opry member for over a decade. After his 2017 tour claimed the top spot on Billboard’s Hot Tours selling over 750,000 tickets, Bentley will fuel arenas and amphitheaters throughout the summer with his 2018 MOUNTAIN HIGH TOUR, launching May 18th in Columbia, MD.
