Don McLean Readies ‘Botanical Gardens’ For March 23 Release; Legendary Songwriter To Be Honored In His Hometown; NYC & UK Media Appearances & More!

DON MCLEAN SET TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM BOTANICAL GARDENS MARCH 23

Don’s hometown of New Rochelle, New York set to honor Don on March 21, along with an appearance on BBC’s Breakfast News March 15 with more BBC Radio interviews this week and major media appearances scheduled in New York City March 21 & 22.

 Iconic American singer, songwriter and performer Don McLean is set to release his new album Botanical Gardens on March 23, 2018 via BMG.

Don is set to appear on BBC Breakfast Thursday, March 15 along with multiple BBC radio stations and Absolute Radio in the U.K.

“Greetings from London where we are promoting my new album ‘Botanical Gardens’, said McLean. “The reception has been wonderful and I look forward to coming to New York next, where we will perform at City Winery on Friday the 23rd! I think this new album will do very well. Take a listen to “Ain’t She a Honey” and “Total Eclipse of The Sun” – I hope it will be something people like.”

Don is profiled in a new episode of Heartland TV’s More Than The Music airing Tuesday, March 20 at 8:00pm ET/PT as well as Heartland’s Roku channel and online at watchheartlandtv.com, with an encore viewing Sunday, March 25 at 8:00pm ET/PT.

On March 21, Don’s hometown of New Rochelle, New York will have its own piece of “American Pie” when the world-renowned singer and songwriter will dedicate his existing plaque at the city’s Walk of Fame in Ruby Dee Park at Library Green. The ceremony is open to the public, beginning at 4 PM, and will be hosted by Jennifer Lanser, Executive Director of the New Rochelle Chamber of Commerce. Later that evening the city will honor McLean with a Lifetime Achievement Award at their annual Dinner Dance and Awards ceremony at 7pm. For more information or to RSVP, contact the New Rochelle Chamber of Commerce at info@newrochamber.org, infonewrochamber@gmail.com, call 914-632-5700 or visit newrochellechamber.org.

Don then returns to New York City with appearances scheduled at ABC News Radio, WABC’s Bernie & Sid, iHeart/Premiere Radio Networks, Fox News Radio, United Stations, LifeMinute, and more, ending the week with a performance at City Winery Friday, March 23.

With over 40 gold and platinum records worldwide, his prowess for writing timeless songs is once again captured on Botanical Gardens, as he artfully weaves country, Americana, folk, and boot stomping rock for an eclectic, yet American sound that he is known for.

Botanical Gardens, his 19th studio album and first in 8 years, is arguably one of Don’s most reflective to date. As he characterizes it, “The inspiration for the project started years ago when I would walk in the beautiful gardens in Sydney, Australia near the Opera House. I would dream young dreams and it was a comfort and an inspiration. I was always young inside, like we all are, and I felt it again there.” Further reflecting on the record, Don says, “the whole album really revolves around the title song. Later on I realized that the gardens are really a metaphorical heaven, and there’s a kind of death and rebirth.

Intimacy can be found at the heart of this record, with Don penning personal numbers looking back on a life well-lived, as well as his observations on youth and love. Recording at Watershed Studios in Nashville also allowed a different kind of intimacy for Don and his band, as they were made to “play close and feel the music”, resulting in a raw, yet tight sound throughout.

In nearly 50 years, Don’s songs have become an iconic staple of American music. His music has been performed by artists as diverse as Elvis Presley, Madonna, Fred Astaire, Drake, James Blake, Ellie Goulding, Chet Atkins, Garth Brooks, Weird Al Yankovic, George Michael, Josh Groban, Coolio and Ed Sheeran.

Internationally acclaimed singer, songwriter Josh Groban will host, and country music superstar Brad Paisley, music sensation Kesha and hip hop artist and actor Ludacris comprise the expert panel on ABC’s “Rising Star,” the next evolution of live television.  “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.

To vote for your favorite contestants, home judges (viewers) can download the Rising Star ABC app through the Apple App Store, Windows Market Place, or the Google Play Store.  The App is essential to participate in the voting process, but it’s totally FREE and easy to use.  Just register with your Facebook or Twitter account, and you’re ready to go.   Before each performance, you’ll be asked to check-in, and then when it’s time to vote, swipe BLUE (to the right) to vote YES or RED (to the left) to vote NO.  You’ll see the results of the vote in REAL TIME on television – even if you are on the West Coast.  In just seconds, your votes determine whether the wall rises, whether a contestant moves on or goes home, or if you’re on the West Coast, whether a lucky contestant gets a second chance.  And IF you give us permission through the app, you might also see your Facebook or Twitter profile picture on the Rising Star wall.  To learn more on how to vote, click here.

“Rising Star” opened the gate to a new era in reality competition, when the executive producers, Ken Warwick (“American Idol”) and Nicolle Yaron (“The Voice”) kicked off a nationwide search for talent earlier this year. The show accepted submissions online, via Instagram and production members traveled to Dallas, Atlanta, Chicago, Nashville, Los Angeles, New York and Boston for in person auditions. Beginning June 22, the contestants winnowed down by that search will have their moment onstage in “Rising Star” with viewers deciding who wins.

The series airs over 10 weeks. The first 3 weeks—“Qualifiers”– showcase approximately 30 acts, and these episodes will be 2 hours each. Beginning July 13, the series is one hour weekly. The next phases of competition are the duels—where acts compete one-on-one. Those who survive return for the Quarterfinal and perhaps Semifinal rounds, as the field continues to narrow until the night of the Finals, when just 1 of the remaining acts will be named the “Rising Star” winner.

June 22, 9-11 p.m. ET – Qualifiers
June 29, 9-11 p.m. ET – Qualifiers
July 6, 9-11 p.m. ET – Qualifiers
July 13, 9-10 p.m. ET – Duels
July 20, 9-10 p.m. ET – Duels
July 27, 9-10 p.m. ET– Duels

August 10, 9-10 p.m. ET – Quarterfinals
August 17, 9-10 p.m. ET- Semifinals

“Rising Star” is executive produced in the U.S. by Ken Warwick (“American Idol”) and Nicolle Yaron (“The Voice”). The series is from Keshet DCP, the joint venture between Keshet International (KI), the global distribution and production arm of Keshet Media Group, and DC Media, the parent company of dick clark productions (dcp).
