McGraw connects with audience Tim McGraw will be performing on the main stage Sunday, August 4. For 20 years, McGraw has been providing powerful connection with his audience. With Two Lanes of Freedom, his new album – and first release for Big Machine Records – the singer is covering his broadest emotional range yet, with a set of songs

that looks forward and back, gets deep and gets loose, and reveals that even the biggest stars can continue to grow with consistency and maturity. In his record-shattering career, McGraw has sold over 40 million albums, and dominated the charts with 32 Number One singles. Since the release of his debut

album in 1993, he has won three Grammys, 14 Academy of Country Music Awards, 12 Country Music Association Awards, and 10 American Music Awards, while simultaneously maintaining a parallel career as a successful actor in such films as The Blind Side, Country Strong, and Friday Night Lights.

Luke Bryan to headline Saturday's BVJ lineup Luke Bryan will be performing on the main stage Saturday, August 3. Luke Bryan is a superstar in the making and the career growth from his first to his second to his third studio album, Tailgates & Tanlines, is the proof. The Georgian who burst on the scene in 2007 with his unique blend of down-home accessibility, movie star good looks and relatable lyrics, is set to explode in a major way. The new album debuted at #1 on the country chart and #2 on the pop charts, making it the second highest debut at that time of 2011 for a country artist. The album is now certified Platinum for sales over one million and contains three back to back Platinum singles – “Country Girl (Shake It For Me)," “I Don’t Want This Night To End,” and “Drunk On You.” To date, Bryan has scored five #1 singles. Not a flash-in-the-pan, overnight sensation, Luke has built his career from the ground up and the Leesburg, Ga., native wouldn’t have it any other way. “My path is exactly where I want it to be,” Luke says. “I’m doing my thing. I’m getting better with every album.” The son of a peanut farmer, Luke knows patience and determination are key elements when it comes to a successful crop – or career – and he’s dedicated to growth. His first album, I’ll Stay Me, produced the Top 10 hits “All My Friends Say” and “Country Man,” while his sophomore effort, Doin’ My Thing, found the singer-songwriter scoring three straight No. 1 singles: “Do I,” “Someone Else Calling You Baby” and “Rain Is A Good Thing.” When Luke scored his

Luke Bryan is a superstar in the making.

first solo performance slot on the 2011 CMT Music Awards, he made the most of it, receiving a standing ovation for his over-the-top performance of “Country Girl (Shake It For Me),” not only from the fans, but also from his artist peers. “When you get performance slots for award shows, that’s a big deal for me,” Luke says. In the fall of 2011, Luke headlined “CMT On Tour: Luke Bryan Tailgates & Tanlines,” which had an impressive list of alumni, including Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban. “It’s almost like you’re getting a stamp of approval to go to the next level,” says Luke. “All those artists that were a part of the CMT Tour have crossed

over into a larger level of artists.” It wrapped as one of the most successful CMT tours in its ten-year history. In 2011, Luke also toured with superstars Tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts and Jason Aldean, as well as hosting his third annual Farm Tour, which offers a student from a local farming family a college scholarship, showcases a stage mastery built working the college and club circuit. “I want my music to jump off the stage and out of the speakers,” says Luke. “When we do ‘Rain Is A Good Thing’ paired back to back with ‘Country Girl,’ it just feels like the roof is fixin’ to come off the place.” Critics affirm Luke’s

stated goal. The Peoria Star Journal called him a “playful and confident performer” while the Oregonian dubbed him “a serious contender for McGraw’s throne.” Luke’s fan-voted wins as Academy of Country Music Top New Male and Top New Artist, as well as his score as USA Weekend Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the CMT Music Awards were a “huge validation,” he says. “Country Girl (Shake It For Me),” with its infectious chorus and backbeat, represents another step forward for the strapping star. Co-written by Luke and Dallas Davidson – the pair also penned “Rain Is A Good Thing” – “Country Girl (Shake It For Me)” sets the

tone for, but doesn’t define any lines. Luke’s latest album is no doubt his best yet. The 13-song collection (of which Luke co-wrote eight) balances lighter fare with meatier offerings. “I Don’t Want This Night To End,” the album’s second single, written by Luke with fellow Georgians Dallas Davidson, Rhett Akins and Ben Hayslip, is a clap-along concert favorite and radio smash. In short, Tailgates & Tanlines represents real life. “I’m really proud that I’ve got some meatier things on this album,” Luke says of the balance between hell raisers and heart breakers. “Nothing is more frustrating to me than putting a song on an album and regret putting it on there. I’m excited that there are no songs on Tailgates & Tanlines that I’m iffy about.” As dedicated as he is to his craft, Luke is even more dedicated to his family: wife Caroline and sons Bo and Tate. “I try to make my time in Nashville mean something for the boys,” he says. “It’s a big fun ride for everybody,” Luke says of his success. “My wife and I are enjoying life more than ever.” While superstardom is knocking on his door, Luke Bryan will answer when he’s ready. “I have never wanted to grow fast in this business,” he maintains. “I have always wanted to take my time, make it happen and be smart about it and I’ve been lucky – all that stuff is happening.” Luke’s aw-shucks demeanor belies his rare gifts. This singer/songwriter/entertainer is the complete package and superstardom is inevitable.

Jackson proves you don't remove the small town from a man Alan Jackson will be performing on the main stage Friday, August 2. An old frame house, willow trees, a dirt driveway, a small garden – these are images that were ingrained in Alan Jackson as he grew up near a stretch of road known as the Dixie Highway. Those images have provided the origins for some of Jackson’s biggest hits – songs such as “Livin’ on Love,” “Home” and “Chattahoochee.” They’re memories so vivid that they remain a source of inspiration on his latest album, Thirty Miles West. Jackson has travelled far more than thirty miles from those small town beginnings in Newnan, Georgia – his music has taken him to the floorboards of the Grand Ole Opry, CBGB and Carnegie Hall, to stages as distant as Australia and Scandinavia, to performances in front of four Presidents. He’s written and recorded songs that have celebrated and chronicled life since “Here

Alan Jackson

in the Real World” put him on the map, finding himself in the elite company of Paul McCartney, John Lennon and Merle Haggard as the only songwriters who’ve written and recorded more than 20 songs that they’ve also taken to the top of the

charts. And his trek continues with the 13 songs that comprise Thirty Miles West. “I grew up about thirty miles west of the official part of the Dixie Highway that runs through Georgia,” Jackson says of the album title. “This highway has

been in existence for forever now – it runs from north of Michigan all the way down to South Florida.” A song penned by Jackson called “Dixie Highway” re-connects him with fellow Georgian Zac Brown. The two paired up a couple of years ago when Brown invited Jackson to sing on “As She’s Walking Away,” a song that would win awards and accolades, including a Grammy. Their voices and musical style fit like a handin-glove then, as they do here, trading memories and images of rural life that could exist virtually anywhere. “To me country music’s about being in love, having your heart broke, drinkin’ and partyin’, livin’ and dyin’, family and where you grew up,” Jackson says. Nearly every one of those life-lessons is here, each brought to life by Jackson’s rich and seasoned vocals. Each song sounds as though he’s lived it or witnessed it. And, in most cases, he has.

For every moment of heartbreak and pain, love and joy are also along this road that runs Thirty Miles West. In “Everything But the Wings,” Jackson writes and sings of a love seemingly sent down from heaven. And in “Nothin’ Fancy” a man peels away the ornamental layers to reveal his love, the most genuine and treasured thing he has to offer. One pictures a carefree young girl or woman singing along to the radio or her iPod in “Her Life’s a Song.” The road that runs through that small Georgia town west of the Dixie Highway has taken Alan Jackson away to places he never ever dreamed he’d see or experience. While the saying may be “You can’t go home again,” Jackson’s music is proof that you don’t take the small town raising out of a man, which is evident on Thirty Miles West – a journey that’s heartfelt and genuine, shared by a voice rich and resonant with sincerity and emotion.

Danny Hooper returns as BVJ emcee

Danny Hooper

Celebrating a major milestone in his career, Danny Hooper returns for his 20th year as Master of Ceremonies at Big Valley Jamboree. "It's been amazing to watch this event grow into one of the largest and most successful outdoor music festivals in the world," says the popular Alberta-based recording artist and entertainer. "And I've been able to watch it all from up here on the main stage ... how cool is that?" Little did Danny know when his father Don bought him his first guitar at age 10 that one day he would not only be rubbing elbows with the likes of Vince Gill, Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, and hundreds of other country stars, but also introducing these acts to crowds of 25,000 and more. But then, rubbing elbows with the stars began early for Danny. At age 21, he and his dad opened their own country nightclub in Edmonton. Called Danny Hooper's Stockyard, the hugely popular steakhouse showcased superstars like Merle Haggard, Ray Price, and Tammy Wynette on a regular basis. Since that time, Danny's career path has taken several interesting twists and turns. Today, he is also a successful fund-raising auctioneer, business and motivational speaker, and awardwinning media personality. But this weekend, it's all about the music. Danny and his band, featuring Grammy award-winning guitarist Redd Volkaert and North American Grand Old Time Fiddle Champion Calvin Vollrath, will kick off this year's BVJ the way it should be kicked off ... with country music that sounds like country music. Would you expect anything less?

Jess Moskaluke

Jess Moskaluke will be performing at the Molson Canadian Saloon Thursday, August 1. With her collective YouTube views to date just shy of 20,000,000, the past few years have been whirlwind years for country songstress Jess Moskaluke (MDM Recordings Inc./EMI Music Canada), a Tyler Ward Featured Artist who rocked the stage on a 45-city tour with his camp throughout North America in 2011. Wearing her signature stilettos and sporting her long dark rocker-chic hair, she released the new title track single and video on June 4, 2012, “Catch Me If You Can” and the eight-track EP on September 4, 2012. An award-winning Canadian country singer/ songwriter in her own right, she was crowned victor of the 2011 Canadian Country Music Awards New Artist Showcase. On November 4, 2012, her track “Go Big Or Go Home” was featured on the hit TV show Heartland. Moskaluke's career began as a small town girl in Saskatchewan at the age of 15, entering local contests to share her music with the world, as so many aspiring artists do. Her debut single “Amen Hallelujah” rocked the Canadian radio airwaves and has received over a half a million views on YouTube. The journey has been a winding road, with many highlights. In 2005, Jess was awarded the title of “Most Promising Entertainer” at a local talent competition, and went on to win second place the following year (in the same competition). Following this she placed in the Top 200 at the 2008 Canadian Idol competition. Jess was also the champion of the 2010 Painted Hand Idol and the 2010 620 CKRM Big Country Talent Search; the very same local competition that she entered a few short years ago in 2005. In June of 2010, Jess made her first trip to Nashville. It was on this trip that she was approached by Artist Development Agency and Publishing Company, Identical Entertainment. Her rich, edgy vocals and stunning beauty impressed the Identical team, and they immediately signed her to an artist development/publishing deal. In 2011 she continued to draw the attention of industry executives, and was signed to Canadian country music distributor and record label MDM Recordings Inc.

Aaron Lines makes most of opportunity Aaron Lines will be performing on the main stage Sunday, August 4. Country singer Aaron Lines didn't think he'd have a career in music while growing up in northern Alberta. Like most kids, he was skating and playing hockey at an early age. Fort McMurray, Alberta, didn't exactly possess a cultural mecca, but Lines had a good childhood. He was the youngest of four children and at age 12, he asked his mother for guitar lessons. Music wasn't really part of the household either, so this new inter-

est took Lines' parents by surprise. It was a positive adventure, though, for Lines eventually mastered the guitar and began writing songs. He graduated early from high school so he could solely focus on music; Lines's selfpenned first single, "I Know I Shouldn't," was a mild hit on his hometown station KYX-98 and by the end of the summer, his popularity was growing. Shows in local pubs, however, weren't exactly his thing. He was a wellbehaved, reserved individual and performing in front of any kind of crowd would

take some getting used to. What Lines did get used to was making homemade press kits. Luckily, one of those demos made it into the hands of Arista. Lines was a college student, studying business at the University in Edmonton, when this ace of an opportunity came about. Arista encouraged Lines to continue writing and recording; with a small loan from his parents and a grant from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, Lines recorded a polished, two-song tape. At age 20, Lines' dreams appeared to be coming true

and jaunts between Los Angeles, Nashville, and his native Canada consumed him for the next two years. A record deal with RCA followed in spring 2001. Lines' full-length debut, the charming, mature Living Out Loud arrived two years later. Living Out Loud also earned six Canadian Country Music Award nominations in 2003, including wins for the Rising Star Award and Male Artist of the Year. Lines issued his sophomore album, Waitin' On The Wonderful, in 2005, while Moments That Matter came two years later.

Rosanne Cash

Rosanne Cash will be performing on the main stage Friday, August 2. Rosanne Cash keeps her head down and shows up for work.

Rosanne’s prose and essays have appeared in the New York Times, The Oxford-American, New York Magazine, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, Martha Stewart Living and various other publications. Her last record album, The List, won the Americana Music award for Best Album of the year and was a critical and commercial success. She is currently writing an album of songs about Southern people, places and themes with her longtime life partner and musical collaborator, John Leventhal. She lives in New York City.

Atkins took right road to success Rodney Atkins will be performing on the main stage Saturday, August 3. Rodney Atkins knows the value of taking the long way home, of veering off the beaten path onto that road less travelled once in a while. You can hear it in his music, in the lyrics of his smash single, "Take A Back Road," a song that celebrates that feeling of getting away from the noise of everyday life, really living in the moment, and getting right with your soul. Rodney always remains true to himself and constantly strives to evolve and find unique ways of expressing himself through the music he puts out into the world. It's a philosophy he tries to employ throughout his life, and it has led him to some amazing places. "What does it mean to follow your own path? I try to think about that a lot when I'm making an album," explains Rodney, describing the journey he took in making his fourth album, Take A Back Road. "To me, it's going somewhere you've never been, because when you do that, you wind up seeing things that no one has seen before, which means you can paint the picture differently." The hardworking artist gathered up a whole new set of colors when he set about creating his latest masterpiece and he cranked the whole recording process up a notch in intensity -- which is saying something for a guy who is pretty darned intense to begin with. Rodney wanted this project, his first in nearly three years, to convey and express some emotions and feelings in an authentic yet different way. Simply put – Rodney had a lot to say musically, and he wanted to say it in exactly the right way. The east Tennessee native has an impressive track record with hitting on sentiments that strike a chord with the country lis-

Rodney Atkins

tener: he's had six number one hits from his first three albums, from "Watching You" and "These Are My People" to his most recent smashes, "Take A Back Road," and "Farmer's Daughter," (which quickly skyrocketed to platinum,) and he's sold over four million singles in the past five years alone. The lead single and title track, "Take A Back Road," has propelled him to even bigger heights with its irresistibly catchy chorus and easygoing, windows down, breezy summer vibe. Rodney knew he had to record the Rhett Akins and Luke Laird song from the beginning. "It's one of those songs that the first time I heard it I thought, 'Boy, that feels good.' It's catchy and something you want to just crank up, but then, the more you hear it, you realize it's not just a ditty – it's about life. If you want it to be just summer ear candy,

it can just be that, but also it's about getting right with your soul, coming down to earth." The public obviously agreed, as the tune reached platinum status just weeks after its release. Although he can be softspoken and serious, Rodney demonstrates his appreciation for the funnier side of life through tunes like the warm and witty, "Family," about a quirky clan of characters gathered at a family reunion, and the laugh-outloud, "She'd Rather Fight." The CD definitely features glimpses into Rodney's wild side, a side most often seen on stage during his energetic live shows where he jokes he "lets his shadow come out to play." Rodney took pains to ensure he captured that raw, live energy this time around. "This album is different in that it's got more edge on

it; it's got a lot more divebombs. We recorded with a smaller band, so songs like 'Back Road' feel like they're right up in your face. Overall, it's a more soulful album." Though his new crop of songs has some edge and the vocal energy may be amped up a notch, Rodney is still the same, hard-working, patriotic, rock-solid country boy that fans have grown to know and love since his debut with 2003's Honesty. Rodney always makes time for volunteer opportunities amidst his touring schedule, as well as for visits to the Holston Methodist Home for Children in Greeneville, TN, where he was adopted as a small child. After all, the road back to the tiny hometown where he got his start may be a long one, but for Rodney, nothing could ever beat the power returning home to your roots.

Tim Hus has intensity of a western gunslinger Tim Hus will be performing at the Molson Canadian Saloon Friday, August 2. Tim Hus has a voice sweeter than a Husqvarna chainsaw, a wit that is sharper than rusty barbed wire, and a list of songs longer than a Saskatchewan fence line! For the past decade Hus and his Travelin' Band have toured to every corner of the land and beyond performing their distinctive brand of Canadiana cowboy music. Following his acclaimed CD Bush Pilot Buckaroo comes the highly anticipated fifth album (his 2nd for Stony Plain Records) Hockeytown joining Corb Lund and the legendary Ian Tyson on the label. Hus comes at his audience like a runaway rig, while firing off image-laden lyrics with the intensity of a western gunslinger. The Alberta-based singer with the black hat and easygoing personality is a captivating and crowd pleasing performer who easily draws listeners into the settings of his storytelling country and roots music. Tim's distinctive songwriting and spirited performances by the members of his dynamic band stand as a cornerstone of authentic Canadiana!

Captain Tractor has become leader in music industry Captain Tractor will be performing at the Molson Canadian Saloon Saturday, August 3. It’s been over seven years since the last recorded effort from Captain Tractor – 2005’s North of the Yellowhead. During that time, Captain Tractor has continued to play shows in Western Canada, Toronto and, of course, in their hometown of Edmonton where they continue to be leaders in the E-Town music and culture industry. Whether as a duo, trio, Power Trio, or the full six-piece band, Captain Tractor is still rocking the waves, and why not? What else are they going to do? Along the way, the band has brought a new member into the fold: their friend and colleague, award-win-

ning fiddler, Shannon Johnson. Captain Tractor's newest studio album, Famous Last Words, is a tour de force from one of Canada’s best Celtic Rock Bands. Full of timeless stories, lush arrangements, soaring vocals, and searing musicality, Famous Last Words is truly Captain Tractor’s best album to date. So what have you been doing in the last six years? Besides playing in Captain Tractor, here’s some other things that the members have been doing. Chris Wynters has just released a solo album: 2010-1982; has written and produced two full musicals: WedLOCKED and Saint Aggies '84; continues to run The Norwood Studio; produces and engineers albums

for bands including The Wheat Pool, Dana Wylie and Amy Seeley; and plays every week at various stages around Edmonton. Chris is also a Sound Designer for Theatre and Video, as well as being involved in the burgeoning arts scene on 118 Avenue in Edmonton. Scott Peters created and produced the Songs From the Ave Project, which included an album of Edmonton Singer Songwriters, and a Musical based on the songs. He continued to work as a Theatre Designer, most recently designing the live sound for Hard Core Logo Live. He is the Vice President of Arts on the Ave, an Edmonton Artist’s society and is an artistic associate for November Theatre. Jason Kodie continued to play with many other

musicians and bands in Edmonton. He released a solo album: A Blessed Curse; with Le Fuzz released the album Vie La Vida; and with Allez Ouest, the album Hybride. He is also an active Theatre Sound Designer, studio musician, and musical artist in residence at many Edmonton schools. Jonny Nordstrom got himself a beautiful daughter, a day job, and finished his university degree after 17 years. He also plays bass with The Plaid Tongued Devils, The James Murdoch Band and other sundry musicians around Alberta. Shannon Johnson played with her siblings in The McDades, who released the award-winning album Bloom, and a Christmas offering Noel. She also collaborated with Maria Dunn

to release the album The Peddler. Shannon played live all over Canada, the US and Europe, and continued to be a sought after studio player and producer. Jules Mounteer continued to be a Mac Guru, play drums with Captain Tractor and others. That’s the last six years of a band that has been together for eighteen, and even though they all have many other projects on the go, they always return to Captain Tractor to play the music that they love with the people that have become like brothers and sisters. Famous Last Words, with its tales of birth, death, love, hockey, and cannibalism, is a raucous return for Canada’s one and only Captain Tractor. What else are they going to do?

Terri Clark only Canadian female in Grande Ole Opry Terri Clark will be performing on the main stage Sunday, August 4. You might begin in 2004, the year Terri joined the cast of the Grand Ole Opry, tapping into the rich traditions of country music’s most famous stage. There’s always 1995, the year Terri launched her career with “Better Things to Do,” a contemporary twist on the no-nonsense approach of Kitty Wells’ “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels” and pretty much the entire Loretta Lynn catalog. Or maybe you go all the way back to 1987, when Terri’s mother and her best friend packed the aspiring singer and her belongings into a Honda Civic and drove from Canada to Nashville, leaving her to play for tips at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, a legendary Lower Broad honky-tonk. The deeper you delve into Classic, the deeper you find its roots go. The story really starts two generations back, with

Terri Clark

Clark’s maternal grandparents, who raised five kids while playing country music in Montreal nightclubs with names like The Kit Kat and The Western Stop. “My grandmother was nicknamed The Canadian Kitty Wells; that’s what they called her around Montreal,”


Terri says. “They couldn’t go to Nashville and take a bigger stab at it – with five kids that just wasn’t going to happen. So I made the pioneer trip to Tennessee." The songs of Classic span four decades of timeless country music, starting with the tunes young Terri learned

via impromptu living-room parties her grandparents often hosted – standards like “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels” or “I’m Movin’ On” by ‘The Singing Ranger Hank Snow, the first Canadian member of the Grand Ole Opry. Terri’s grandfather would break out his fiddle, her grandmother would start singing; soon it seemed like the entire neighbourhood would join in. And the music didn’t stop when the party was over. “My mom would tell me stories about how she would hear my grandmother walking around the house, vacuuming and cleaning, singing Loretta Lynn and Kitty Wells,” Terri says. Years ago, a family friend gave Terri an LP that had her grandmother singing “This White Circle on My Finger,” one of the nearly three dozen Top 10 hits Wells released after “Honky Tonk Angels” blew the barroom doors wide open for women who yearned to sing country music. That recording begins

Classic. Then pedal-steel player Paul Franklin works some modulation magic, and Terri kicks her own version of “Honky Tonk Angels” into high gear. From there, Classic conveys a history of country music viewed from a personal perspective. “I tried really hard to pick at least a song or two from every decade from the '50s to the '80s,” Terri says. In doing so, she reveals the starting point for every part of the Terri Clark sound: the hardcore honkytonk of Merle Haggard; the California country-rock of Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris; tough-minded women like Loretta Lynn and Patsy Cline; Canadian stars from Hank Snow to Neil Young. Classic bears the stamp of influences Tanya Tucker and Reba McEntire, who each join Terri for duet versions of their hits. Friends Jann Arden, Dierks Bentley and Dean Brody sing with her, as well.

Big Valley Jamboree is a complete sell-out for the second year in a row.

Terri grew up singing most of these songs and playing many of them during her years at Tootsie’s, which shares an alley with the artists’ entrance to the Ryman Auditorium, one of the homes of the Grand Ole Opry. During the '50s and '60s, the historic Nashville nightspot, originally known as Mom’s, was a regular hang for greats like Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson. Loretta Lynn’s husband used to drink there when Lynn played the Opry. Terri, of course, played Tootsie’s many years later, and only in the afternoons – her mother forbid the young singer from venturing there after dark. Like many of her heroes whom she covers on Classic – Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn and Emmylou Harris among them – Terri eventually became a member of the Grand Ole Opry – the first and only Canadian female to date. That long-running, live radio show has an important place in the album. Two of Terri’s Classic duet partners are fellow Opry stars. Dierks Bentley joins her for a remake of the George Jones and Tammy Wynette tale of pawnshop romance, “Golden Ring.” Reba McEntire harmonizes with her on “How Blue,” originally a hit from McEntire’s 1984 My Kind Of Country album, itself a collection of mostly covers. “The guests on the album are people who have influenced me or people I’m a fan of, as artists,” says Terri, who was once a cardcarrying member of the Reba McEntire Fan Club. Literally – she still has the card. Terri also still has a T-shirt her mother ordered from the fan club and gave her for Christmas one year. McEntire wasn’t the first guest to sign on for Classic, though. That honour went to Tanya Tucker, who reprised her 1972 smash “Delta Dawn.” “Delta Dawn,” Terri says, was the second song she ever learned on the guitar (the first being “The Long Black Veil,” a 1959 hit for Lefty Frizzell that quickly became a folk standard). “I remember picking up the guitar and learning the chords and getting blisters on my fingers. I didn’t have calluses yet, because I only knew three chords.” That energy runs all the way through Classic, the energy of a contemporary artist having a lively discussion with the music that made her who she is. The spirit of Kitty Wells and Merle Haggard and Glen Campbell and Patsy Cline comes through loud and clear in the songs of Classic. At the same time, it sounds like a Terri Clark record. “These are the songs that led to ‘Better Things to Do’ and to everything else that followed in my career,” Terri says.

Derailers on right track The Derailers will be performing on the main stage Sunday, August 4. In a career that has given rise to more than a decade’s worth of fine-tuned, highly anticipated and wonderfully received music, the Derailers continue to build the relationship between song, listener and dance floor. Each album has been a mix of well-crafted original songs and cover songs so thoughtfully chosen and so representative of the band, fans think they are as original as the band themselves. Challenged by their fans to create a sound that mirrors the shuffle of happy boots on a hardwood floor, the Derailers have fed the hungry dancehall crowds with their classic country beats and a '60s pop sensibility. Fans continue to show their appreciation and admiration with requests for encores long after the last drink has been served. In terms of sound, the Derailers have gotten smoother with age. As Hofeldt puts it, “I think we have retained the path we are going for. But we have certainly grown as players and allowed other influences to come in.” Their music celebrates legacies, while still being on the edge.

The Abrams Brothers will be performing on the main stage Friday, August 2. The Abrams Brothers' album, Northern Redemption, is the first studio album of original material for the band, which consists of brothers John Abrams (vocals, guitar, mandolin, keyboard, percussion) and James Abrams (vocals, violin) and their cousin Elijah Abrams (bass). Born into a four-generation touring bluegrass family, John and James have been on stage in the family business since they were seven and ten. From this musical weaning, they have forged a sound considered to be “Abrams Brothers Music” in Canada. It’s a sound that lives somewhere between Americana, country and roots music. Together as The Abrams Brothers for over 10 years, the band became the youngest Canadians to perform at the Grand Ole Opry. In 2005, they were named Emerging Artist of the Year at the Canadian Bluegrass Music Awards. Over the past few years, The Abrams Brothers have been a constant on the Canadian festival circuit and have shared the same stage with Feist, John Hammond and Dean Brody. Recorded on Wolfe Island, Ontario, at the home studio of producer Chris Brown (The Bourbon Tabernacle Choir, Tony Scherr, Ani DiFranco, The Barenaked Ladies), Northern

Redemption features nine original songs along with a beautiful, bluegrass version of Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida.” “For us, Chris Brown’s studio is like what “Big Pink” was to The Band: a rustic, cedar shingle covered cabin, secluded from any sense of haste brought about by an urban setting” says John Abrams. “This was exactly the environment we needed to create this project. If you listen closely enough, you can almost hear someone stoking the wood stove behind a vocal take, or an axe splitting wood behind a violin solo.” Drawing from their vast influences including the Louvin Brothers, Tony Rice, The Beach Boys and Neil Young, The Abrams Brothers seamlessly fuse bluegrass with country and folk-rock. Lyrically, the album draws heavily upon the landscapes of the Canadian wilderness, and merges these images with themes of love, loneliness and restless ambition. “The songs draw upon the many experiences of growing up playing music with four generations of Abrams musicians, coupled with the youthful unrest we feel in wanting to further our own career” explains John Abrams. “The album is a bit of a paradox: a parallel dynamic between our retrospective view of our decade-long touring career, along with the fact that we are still very young and feel like our career is only just beginning.”

Wilkinson leads Small Town Pistols into big time country performances Small Town Pistols will be performing on the main stage Saturday, August 3. Amanda Wilkinson was building on an already glittering music career when she released her slick and impressive solo debut in 2007. But the diminutive singer-songwriter wasn’t satisfied, even if everybody else was. Having given seven of the 10 songs on her record to other composers, Amanda was hungry for full-blown independence. “I felt like it was my responsibility that the next project I would do, I’d be saying something as a grown person,” she says, explaining why she exiled herself to Nashville in 2010 to bunker down and get back to her first love – songwriting. Meanwhile, some 1,300 kilometres away, Tyler Wilkinson was also busy forging his own identity when the fateful call came from his sister. “I had a rock band in Ontario for six years that I was working with pretty much full time,” he says, “and Amanda was, like, ‘Come on down and write with me!’ I was thinking I’d be going to help write for her future solo project.” For all intents and purposes he probably was. Instead, 15 or 20 songs into their collaboration, something started to feel familiar and right. “I think there was kind of an, ‘Ah ha!’ moment. Enter Small Town Pistols,

named after the small but powerful family matriarch whose spirit Amanda seemed to inherit. “People would say you’re like Grandma Ida, she says. "She was a pistol!’ While nobody is likely to forget that Amanda and Tyler enjoyed phenomenal success together years earlier with the Wilkinsons, one listen to Small Town Pistols reveals an entirely different beast. Their debut self-titled album profits from a long connection as performers – something immediately heard when they wrap their close harmonies around a winding vocal melody in “Easy as Breathing” – but there’s also a newfound sophistication and scope at work here. From the chiming, modern pop of “Blame the Radio”, to the galloping Fleetwood Mac redux of “Love is Gonna Find You,” the songwriting and performances their first record are, as Tyler bluntly states, “just more mature.” Adds Amanda, “It’s a jump from being a 16-year-old, when we released our first record as the Wilkinsons, to being a near 30- year-old with different things to say entirely. We’re saying things we’d say as adults.” The timing obviously works. Amanda sounds amazed when she recalls the “fluency” of their writing sabbatical together. “It just kept spilling out,” she says, while the duo’s interior jour-

ney – both were recovering from broken relationships at the time – was doubled in some ways as they pieced the album together on an impulsive path that took them from Nashville, to Toronto, to Vancouver. In the course of things, the Pistols also invited a varied bunch of friends to lend a hand. The effusive modern country of “Colour Blind” comes courtesy of Chad Kroeger’s creative partner Joey Moi, while the slightly eccentric path taken in “Walk Tall” is the result of a hookup with Steve Bays of Hot Hot Heat. Amanda says they approached this project “with no rules,” and the payload is an album that swings naturally from the affectionate vintage country pastiche of “It’s You” to the grandeur of “Friends” or “Living on the Outside." With a majestic feel that recalls classic Jimmy Webb, “Living on the Outside” is a track where the duo’s attention to songcraft couldn’t be any clearer, or more affecting. It’s significant therefore that it’s also one of three songs cowritten by their father, Steve. While Amanda and Tyler cite everything from Lefty Frizzell to Emmylou Harris, the Beatles, and Death Cab’s Ben Gibbard as inspiration, she’s happy to admit that “the biggest influence of all is always our dad.”

Tenille cares about music, others


Tenille will be performing on the main stage Saturday, August 3. Tenille is paving her own way in this business of country music in Canada. As we’ve watched this young aspiring artist, grow before our eyes into a young woman, Tenille is quickly becoming a role model to many and has an infectious way of inspiring everyone she comes across, with her contagious smile and uplifting attitude. Tenille's “Light” is a great departure from her previous release, introducing us to a wiser and more grown young adult. This album gives us insight to the trials and tribulations of a teenager facing growing into a woman, falling in love and being carefree with your heart. Tenille is known for her philanthropic contributions, which resulted in being honoured as the youngest recipi-

ent in history to be presented with the Slaight Music Humanitarian Award at the 2012 Canadian Country Music Awards. In 2012 Tenille was also recognized by the Grande Prairie & District Chamber of Commerce – Business Excellence Award for “Young Entrepreneur of the Year” and recently in early 2013 received the Queen Elizabeth II – Diamond Jubilee Medal. Following this great honour, Tenille also received The Alberta Country Music Association’s Award for Female Artist of the Year for the second year in a row and also was awarded the 2012 Fans' Choice. Tenille intends to use her developing career and fame to continue to give back through music to communities across Canada. Grande Prairie’s starlet is setting her mark on country fans and industry alike with her strong advocacy

for ‘giving back,’ with heavy fundraising efforts with several organizations and in addition, to creating her own annual music event Big Hearts for Big Kids benefitting Sunrise House, the youth emergency shelter serving a wide area of Northern Alberta. In the fouryear event tenure, $350,000 has been raised which helped to keep the shelter doors open. In addition to being busy finding ways to “give back”, Tenille started her own headlining tour, called “Play It Forward.” Tenille travelled to schools across Alberta in the latter part of 2012 with a message through music and motivational speaking for students, promoting positive leadership efforts for Canada’s youth. During the five-week duration, Tenille managed to reach over 10,000 students in 29 schools all over the province. With Alberta being such a great success.

Mission discovered country music early with her family and friends Katie Mission will be performing at the Molson Canadian Saloon Thursday, August 1. Katie Mission discovered her love for country music at a very young age. She thrived on performing for family and

friends, and began taking classical singing and piano lessons. With her powerful and compelling vocals at 15 she showcased her talents to the public by entering her first competition, which began a

lengthy and an impressive winning streak. Mission released a new single entitled “Hand Out The Window” to iTunes and Canadian country radio on April 8.

The band that makes everyone feel good is back The Mavericks will be performing on the main stage Friday, August 2. “It took life for us to get to this point – Everybody was so free. From the first notes, it sounded like an explosion of sound; We went where the songs took us with a singularity of purpose. We came in to make music as grown-ups, to make music as men.” – Raul Malo, lead singer of The Mavericks The Mavericks are back. The country-steeped garage band with a Cuban American lead singer, emerged from Miami with their sultry debut that was equal parts innocence, intensity and vintage influences. But time has a way of melting when you’re busy living life – and two decades have passed since their polyrhythmic brand of post-modern country has given the world “All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down,” “Here Comes The Rain,” and “Dance The Night Away.” With their latest album, time melts once again and the band that defied definitions, blurred genres and made everybody feel good, is back. The "most interesting band in the world" has captured the infectious energy and robust sound from their live shows on their first release on The Valory Music Co., In Time. Whether it’s the Buck Owens-influenced “Dance In The Moonlight,” the panoramic Orbisonesque “Born To Be Blue,” the horn-punctuated retro noir “Back In Your Arms Again” or Tejano-esque “All Over Again,” the Mavericks have once again found the way to make soul music and sole music. For Malo, the lead singer with the rich supple voice that’s second to only Roy Orbison in its ability to convey lonesome, desire and vivre; drummer Paul Deakin and multi-instrumentalist Robert Reynolds; as well as longtime collaborator keyboardist Jerry Dale McFadden and seasoned guitarist Eddie Perez, life has made them richer in terms of experience, playing acumen and a sense of their own musicality. It has also deepened the connection between them in a way that heightens the singular chemistry that made the Grammy-winning band one of the most exciting live propositions in any musical genre. Maybe the space has given us a sense not of how, but more what can happen when we come together,” says Deakin, who spent the years apart balancing master-level carpentry with touring with David Meade and Jason White. “Just being there, and experiencing it, you don’t think about it. But there is definitely something when you get Raul, Robert, Eddie, Jerry Dale and I in a room that’s more …" And the way this record happened: it really fostered the passion, the urgency and

the hyper-listening of being in tune with each other. It’s a way of being in tune we don’t have with anyone else.” Ironic, since other than a disjointed album seven years ago, the Mavericks had gone their separate ways. Through happenstance, serendipity and a collective convergence of the cosmos, the band members found themselves entertaining the notion of some live shows for major festivals, then the idea of recording emerged. Seven years had passed; they’d barely spoken, hadn’t been in the same room. Hadn’t given the band more than a passing thought, because what’s done is done. But the Mavericks had never been conventional. Indeed, with the passage of time, their legend grew – and wherever the principals went, the question of reuniting seemed to grow exponentially. “I’d always dismissed the people who asked (about The Mavericks) as just holding onto the past,” laughs Malo. “A moment in their lives, some notion that was more fantasy than fact. But the years past, I kept making music and it never died – those questions. “Finally, a friend was visiting family in Virginia, a year or so ago, and they were sitting close enough to the bandstand, the players heard them talking about us. Without saying a word, that band played three Mavericks songs without missing a beat. When does that happen?” So the man who feared re-treading what was and

diminishing the potency of the multiple CMA and ACM Group of the Year’s legacy began to rethink whether there was more music to be made. “It’s funny,” says Perez, who's made music with Chris Shiflett of the Foo Fighters, Dwight Yoakam, Miranda Lambert, George Straight, Lee Ann Womack and Raul as a solo artist. “It was maybe to some dates, then sure let’s do it -- and then what was a few shows turned into, ‘Hey, maybe let’s make a record.’ It just snow-balled, because I think every one of these guys lives to make music, and together, they all know they’re like nothing else.” The time apart had also strengthened everyone’s musicality. “I expected everybody to play their asses off,” Malo confesses. “That they’d step in like men, and make music. And they did. And then some.” What Malo doesn’t say is that the band did zero preproduction. He was on tour in Europe. Other band members had commitments. Given that they were more “let’s see what happens” than locked in, it was decided to show up and see what happened. Harvesting a sea of influences – from Dean Martin to ZZ Top, Merle Haggard and George Jones to tangos, polkas and Ravel’s “Bolero” – this album was as bold as it was exciting to record. Or as Perez laughs, “It’s so many genres … if you had to call it something, I guess it would have to be ‘inclusive’.”

“I think it took 30 seconds,” Malo says of the band’s inherent chemistry. “We started playing, and it just happened. It was that explosion of sounds! There’s this beautiful simplicity to this, because we did fall together in some ways, but there’s deceptiveness to it, too – because when we play together, we know each other so well.” “There was a sense anything could go wrong at any moment,” Deakin concurs. “So there was this immediacy – and this notion of really being ‘in’ it. Raul didn’t let us hear the songs on purpose, so we were all really listening, really paying attention because we didn’t know what was going to happen." “Figure Trampoline" was a massive live production, lining out the band’s history album by album. “Music For All Occasions" was the band recording in the basement of Sony Publishing. And "Crying Shame" was the band's first real recording session in Nashville with major producers. For all the polish and sophistication, sold out shows at the UK’s Royal Albert Hall, cultural blurring and tours of Japan, South America and Europe, United States and Canada, The Mavericks are, indeed, a post-punk band with deep retro-fittings from Miami’s indie scene. That existing beyond the lines is why the lush '50s stroll of “That’s Not My Name” is as comfortable for the li'l ole band for Calle Ocho as the jukin’ “As Long

As They’re Lovin’ Tonight,” the stoic tenderness of “In Another’s Arms” or the epic build-and-recede “Call Me When You Get To Heaven,” featuring the legendary McCrary Sisters, which went down in one take. “Tonight Is The Night,” with its climbing melodic escalation and unabashed brio, is as seductive as country’s been in years, while the B-3 and mariachi "Amsterdam Moon" celebrates the sensual jolt of being alive in the unseen details. Even the spaghetti Western “Come Unto Me” ripples with drama and the squat horn parts as Malo’s voice grows bolder and more epic in its bravado and command of carnality. Keyboardist Jerry Dale McFadden, who started with the band in '93, says, "The new music stands for real music, a magical vibe that happens when we play together. You don’t recognize that our work was labored over. No, instead, we make it look like its music that we just started playing." McFadden believes In Time will be applauded by old fans and will likely attract younger audiences as well. "We just made a great record, and there are plenty of folks who will discover this for the first time and discover the vibe, that this is something fresh. What was old is new again." “This is a very masculine record,” Malo says with vast understatement. “There’s a little bravado in there, I’ll say that. It’s the bullfighter with the flower in his mouth, but it’s also about men … and women … and how different we are, but how much we want and desire each other. Kind of quit with the understanding, and let’s get back to being what we are.” Getting back to being what we are underscores everything about The Mavericks' return to form. The ferocity of their playing, the singularity of their intent – and yes, the copious sense of exuberance that infuses every note of the album. “Our relentless pursuit of fun and our selfish notion of pleasing ourselves has always driven us,” Deakin concedes. “But pleasing ourselves creatively has also always worked for us, created an immediacy that makes us true to the songs. We don’t create for a niche or a genre, but to capture the spirit – and that’s always been our strong point.” “When we were the new kids, there was this excitement,” Reynolds continues. “Maybe even a naiveté that came off as brash, but we were always sincere. We were never trendy, because we weren’t chasing anything. Maybe we were rebels because we were different … But I think people realize now, this is who we are, what we do. It’s not hipster, it’s who we are.”

Niemann follows McCoy at BVJ kick-off festival Jerrod Niemann will be performing at the Molson Canadian Saloon Thursday, August 1. While writing and recording his new album, Jerrod Niemann immersed himself in the history of country music. A student of music theory and production—he majored in Performance Art Technology at South Plains College in Levelland, Texas – Jerrod pondered a question that is heard more and more frequently these days: Just what exactly constitutes country? His answer to that query can be found in the musi-

cally and technically groundbreaking Free The Music. “This album is my interpretation of how I feel about country right now,” Jerrod says. The follow-up to his Sea Gayle Records/Arista Nashville debut Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury, which debuted at No. 1 and yielded the No. 1 hit “Lover, Lover” and the Top 5 single “What Do You Want,” Jerrod’s sophomore album emphasizes the early instruments that have shaped the genre: acoustic guitars and bass, fiddles, and even horns.

Big and Rich return to Rock the Boat

Big and Rich will be performing on the main stage Sunday, August 4. They are America's Technicolor cowboys, brothers-inarms in service to the creed that great music has no boundaries. Individually, John Rich and Big Kenny Alphin are first-rate musicians, songwriters, producers and entertainers. Together, they are one of the most truly original musical forces ever unleashed on a welcoming world. With the release of Hillbilly Jedi, they reasserted their position as modern music's best party soundtrack with songs like "Party Like Cowboyz," "Rock the Boat" and "Get Your Game On." As might be expected, though, given the wide sweep of their talent, they do a great deal more. Their music has always displayed great range, with well-crafted songs about love, loss, patriotism and social issues all interspersed among those party anthems, and that is especially true here. Hillbilly Jedi covers a great deal of stylistic ground, from "Last Words," which John describes as "Roy Orbison meets Queen," and "Lay It All On Me," a meditation on happiness and love set amid a hauntingly beautiful track complete with choir, to " 'Cause I Play Guitar," a bluesy bauble celebrating the fruits of the rocking life. Hillbilly Jedi's lead single, "That's Why I Pray," became their fastest riser since "Lost In This Moment," which climbed to the top of the charts five years earlier. A topical spiritual anthem, "That's Why I Pray" is the cry of a battered but hopeful soul in a world whose turmoil is splattered 24/7 across the world's airwaves, brought to life by two artists adept at capturing real emotional resonance. It is also a song that displays the pair's willingness to reach beyond their own formidable songwriting talents as they seek to make the best possible music. "When you've got two songwriters," says John, "some people wonder why we'd record something we didn't write, but we are in a position to take the greatest music we can get our hands on, and if something brilliant and poignant like 'That's Why I Pray' comes along, we don't care who wrote it." "I was surprised at how well it did right off the bat," adds Kenny, "but I felt very positive that it was the kind of song that would make a difference." Big & Rich has, of course, made a difference, exploding into the public consciousness in 2003 as that rarest of breeds – true country music game changer. With 2004’s triple-platinum Horse of a Different Color, they were able to tap into the best strands of a wide spectrum of popular music, filter them through their pens and voices and produce a sound that is instantly recognizable, if not classifiable. "You still can't really define what that sound is," says John. "Even we can't." It begins, of course, with that one-of-a-kind vocal blend, as unique and compelling as any in the history of the popular airwaves. "I listen to a lot of music and I haven't heard any two voices go together like this," says Kenny. "John and I can match each other anywhere. He can sing anything and I can make an entirely different other melody around it, and vice versa." If radio didn't fully know what to make of them at first, fans of every musical stripe did. They packed arenas with a flying circus of sight, sound and spectacle, a touring renaissance fair of the mind, complete with raised glasses and danceable beats. And now, Hillbilly Jedi harkens back to the strength and magic of that debut. "It has very much that same feeling as our first album," says Kenny, "in that we just wanted to go wherever it felt good. That's the most freeing way to make music and truly the music ought to come out of any artist straight from the heart and creative soul. And we had a blast making it."

Bobby Willis has spent many years refining his craft Bobby Wills will be performing on the main stage Saturday, August 3. Usually when people say they 'found themselves' through music, they don't mean it in quite the way Bobby Wills does. If his latest album, If It Was That Easy, is any indication, we're all better off because he started looking. Adopted as a baby and raised in Calgary, as a teenager Wills was more interested in street hockey than songwriting. It was finding his biological family just after turning 20 that convinced Wills the musical path he'd started down on a visit to Australia was set long before he first picked up a guitar. "We were at an open mic night and my buddy bet me $20 that I wouldn't get up and sing with the band, so I did," Wills says of the Australian trip. "I sang "The Dance" by Garth Brooks and there was a reaction from the crowd that I didn't anticipate. It was amazing. I'd always poked around music but I'd never put any real effort into it, so I started to learn to play guitar while I was over there." Just after returning from Australia, Wills received a call from the adoption registry he'd joined after turning 18; his mother had also registered and they wanted to know if he was still interested in making the connection. Wills didn't hesitate. Finding his mother led to a series of earth-shaking discoveries, including the existence of five siblings and

a musical streak a mile wide that ran throughout his biological family. "My dad was a huge country music fan," he says of the man who raised him, "so that's where I get my love of it from, but no one ever played music in my family when I was growing up. When I met my first two biological siblings and discovered we shared a talent for music I thought, 'that's kinda cool - it must be a genetic connection' but I didn't think much else about it at the time." While he got to know his new family, Wills also started pursuing music more seriously, performing at open mic nights and touring Canada playing country music in a bar band. While preparing to record demos in Toronto with Juno-nominated country artist Thomas Wade, his mother called to tell him 'I've found your dad'. Wills made arrangements to stay with his father on the trip to Toronto to work with Wade. "The first night I was there we sat up all night listening to records. We both shared an affinity for a great lyric, and it was then that I realized 'This is real, this is in my blood. This isn't just a crazy dream I had; this is part of who I am.' It really crystallized for me then." In keeping with Bobby's commitment to playing and writing Country Music, he started splitting time between Calgary and Nashville, where doors opened quickly, that allowed Wills to begin writing songs regularly with some of Nashville's top names.

Recording an album with J.R. Vautour led to an introduction to songwriter Wade Kirby (George Strait, Faith Hill, Emerson Drive), who brought in his friend Mike Pyle (Blake Shelton), who in turn introduced Wills to the Muscle Shoals music scene and to his friend, and Wills' hero, legendary songwriter Walt Aldridge (Tim McGraw, Reba McEntire, Ronnie Milsap, Travis Tritt). "It changed everything. It changed my life," says Wills, of his time in Muscle Shoals. "The music scene was so real, so raw, so incredible. And getting to meet and work with Mike Pyle and Walt Aldridge ... wow." Wills has invested many years in learning his craft and believes it was the best thing he could have done,

especially with mentors like Pyle and Aldridge. The trio have an easy, natural connection that is reflected in their work; together they've written three of the 10 tracks on If It Was That Easy and nine of the tracks include two of the three as co-writers (Wade Kirby and Thomas Wade also contribute to two of the album's tracks). His debut album Man With No Past yielded the Billboard Country Top 40 single "A Little More Time" (a major feat for a completely independent artist), but Wills feels If It Was That Easy is a truer reflection of Bobby Wills, the artist. His elegant country vocals are overlaid on modern country stylings that nestle in neatly alongside Joe Nichols and Carrie Underwood. Of the recording process

for If It Was That Easy, Wills says, "we really just wanted to let the sound happen and see where it took us. We wanted to let it happen organically and it feels that way to me. " Wills is convinced there's a revolution coming, a point where people will demand something 'more' from country music. "It seems like we might be in a position to get lucky with our timing because I'm hearing more and more from 20-somethings and 30-somethings who love country music but are looking for something else," Wills says. "Whether or not that's my stuff, I don't know, I'll let the world decide, but at the end of the day that's where I think we're going and I intend to be there when it happens."

Members of Wyatt have evolved to musical brotherhood Wyatt will be performing at the Molson Canadian Saloon Friday, August 2. Critically acclaimed by Billboard Magazine, mixing soulful country and classic rock, award- winning Wyatt is taking fans by storm with their new album. Daniel (Danny) Fortier’s and Scott Patrick’s captivating vocals and guitar skills, Cam Ewart’s bass and Bray Hudson’s drums create the rockin’ country sound of Saskatchewan’s very own Wyatt (a band name inspired in true wild west fashion after the famous Wyatt Earp, best known for his participation in the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral!). Their catchy lyrics and mixture of country-grooves and hard-rock rhythms will surely get audiences up on their feet. The band has electrified fans across North America and has shared the stage with many country music stars including Rascal Flatts, Carolyn Dawn Johnson, Jason Aldean and Emerson Drive. With a rapidly growing fan base, their high energy performance and humour-filled on stage chemistry reaches audience

members of all ages time and again. 2012 proved to be an exciting year for Wyatt, recording a new album, signing a record deal with Canadian label MDM Recordings Inc., and the first single “Jesse James” dropping on Christmas Day. The new record (released May 2013) was recorded at The Armoury Recording Studios in Vancouver and was produced by CCMA award-winner and Junonominee Mitch Merrett. The first single “Jesse James” is an up-tempo track filled with killer guitar riffs and toe-tapping stick-in-the-brain lyrics “I wanna line ‘em up and drink ‘em, I wanna love 'em and leave 'em, sometimes I just want to rob a train …” Exclaims Scott Patrick, “We are really excited about this new project. The experience making our last album gave us the confidence to push the envelope and really evolve and refine our sound. Right from the initial talks with Mitch (regarding the album’s direction), we knew this one was going to be a pure Wyatt album – rock n’ roll with a country soul. It was an amazing experience

to write and record these great songs with a producer who is willing to stray outside conventional lines.” 2010 CCMA New Artist Showcase performers, the members of Wyatt have evolved into a musical brotherhood filled with tons of laughter, subscribing to a unified philosophy of commitment, fun, and a passion for pure music. Like many musicians, each artist began his or her career as a young child, finding the tunes were truly in each one's DNA. Danny’s journey arose from a twist of fate when, at the age of six, an ear specialist diagnosed he would be deaf within the year. In the face of such awful news his mom walked him immediately into a store, purchased a guitar and placed it in his hands with the life changing words “You will have as much music as you can get before you go deaf.” A fortunate happy ending, the doctor’s diagnosis was wrong, and Danny in turn found his musical calling. Many moons later Wyatt was born. The band was originally founded by Danny and Scott, as they casually collaborated as

songwriters. With a bounty of music written, the duo decided to form a band; amusingly, Cam and Bray originally declined joining when first approached, until they heard the songs they had written! After the first jam session it was clear the quartet were destined to perform together. The band has received a great deal of critical acclaim from a variety of press; says Jeff DeDekker of the Regina Leader Post “… And what can be said about Wyatt? Well, let me try a few adjectives. Polished. Professional. Entertaining. Exciting. Everything about the band is good – they’ve chosen material that fits the band, their music abilities (including their wonderful harmonies) are superb and it’s quite obvious they love to perform.” Their sophomore CD If I Had A Dollar … is full of infectious tunes, with two of the singles, “Ride On” and “Questions”, breaking into the Billboard Canadian Country Singles Top 40 charts in 2009 and 2010. “Ride On’s” upbeat sound and lyrics of getting away and “riding on” is the perfect summer anthem.

“Questions” is a heartfelt ballad reflecting on the beauty of love and all the troubles that come with it. “It’s about finding a moment and really immersing the listener in that moment so that you can feel it with all of your senses,” says Patrick of Wyatt. Throughout the years Wyatt has proudly received many accolades and awards including Saskatchewan Country Music Awards (SCMA’s) Group of the Year for five years in a row (20082012)! Additional accolades include the 2008 Rising Star SCMA and Astral Media’s Next Big Thing in 2009. “Receiving the support and recognition from fans and your home province is one of the main reasons we can be successful doing what we do,” says drummer Hudson. The band was also a finalist at the 2010 Bon Jovi’s Wanted: A SuperBAND Tonight contest placing 2nd out of 131 artists and won the ‘Capital Hoedown Showdown’ to open for Rascal Flatts in Ottawa and was stoked to rock at the 2012 Canadian Country Music Awards (CCMA).


McCoy has had share of feel good records


Neil McCoy will be performing at the Molson Canadian Saloon Thursday, August 1. “Everybody wants to find that song that hits the sweet spot, that is pretty much them, but everybody else, too. “I think I finally found that song!” – Neal McCoy In a world where every single is the biggest hit, every song the best one ever, Neal McCoy has had his share of feel good radio records, a few meaningful ballads, the BMI Song of the Year with “Wink” and “The Shake” and a whole lot of fun. But he’s spent almost two decades chasing ‘that song.’ With “A-OK, the song that co-producer Blake Shelton found the Longview, Texan entertainer, McCoy’s quest may be over. With its bouncing beat, bright melody and yes, pure Andy Griffith whistle, the song about seeing the glass as half-full and the smile upside down in a frown, along with the Barry Dean/ Luke Laird/Brett Eldridge mid-tempo, is the perfect distillation of McCoy’s always effervescent show. “I think any song that says ‘It’s gonna be okay, it’s gonna be alright …’ and feels like this one does, has got to be a winner. People really wanna hear, and almost need to hear, that right now … Times being the way they are, and something that makes people feel good? Well, anyone who knows me knows I’m all about that,” McCoy explains. Ask anyone about Neal McCoy, and they may not be able to name all of the songs, but they’ll go on and on about his live concerts: full-tilt celebrations of music, life, laughter, joy and yes, his five #1s. But don’t make it about Neal McCoy; he sure wouldn’t. “I think when people come to see you, sure they want to hear your music,”

he explains. “But they really wanna be somewhere that makes ’em forget their troubles for a little bit; to have some fun, to laugh and remember how good life can be. I always say, they’re not fans … they’re friends and I want ’em to have a good time.” Modesty aside, McCoy has sold over six million albums. His entrance into the country music world was championed by Hall of Famer Charley Pride, and his return is being orchestrated by CMA Entertainer of the Year nominee and reigning Male Vocalist of the Year Blake Shelton, and CMA/ ACM Album, Single and Female Vocalist of the Year Miranda Lambert. People like that know music – and performing. Those who came before and those who’re now setting the standard both recognize how special McCoy’s kind of country is. Or as Blake Shelton himself says, “The only thing that blows me away more than Neal McCoy in concert is the fact he asked me to be involved in making his new album ... I'm honored to work with a hero of mine.” And the album helmed by Lambert, Shelton and guitar-slinger Brent Rowan is no less special. Nashville’s very best writers – Song of the Year winner Tom Douglas, Rivers Rutherford, Jamey Johnson, Allen Shamblin, and new hitmakers Luke Laird, Brett Eldredge, George Terren & Barry Dean – have all opened up their secret stash of songs saved for the very few who deserve them to provide the songs for XII, McCoy’s Blaster Records debut. “It’s like my shows, a little bit of everything that makes music special,” explains the man who’s done 15 USO tours, represented President Bush at the inauguration of Philippine President Arroyo,

established the East Texas Angel Network 17 years ago for children with lifethreatening illnesses, helping over 400 families along the way, and co-written the good natured “Lucky Enough,” an all street corner bravado shuffle and bright-eyed look at life, dreams and love. “There is so much great music … beyond the labels … we have a little bit of church, a little bit of bar-room, a couple ballads that’ll encourage, and a real Texas thing about finding your groove in the midst of heartbreak with

a cold beer and a good jukebox,” McCoy explains. “It’s like me, but it’s better. Blake and Miranda had definite ideas about what this should be. Blake had met me in ’95 when he’d first come to town and was looking around. He walked in the front door of Atlantic Records – and there I was in the lobby answering phones. I’d had a couple hits by then, but I was goofy like that,” he adds. “We met again years later, doing radio interviews – and he told me about that. That he couldn’t believe it;

but that’s the kinda guys we both are. And Miranda, she’d grown up 30 miles away, playing talent shows around the area and dreaming of doing what I was doing … so, they came to this more invested than I would’ve ever imagined. Both of them get who I am and what makes me, me, and that was what drove all their decisions. That’s Blake playing a lot of the acoustic guitar – and you can hear ’em singing all over the single. They had such good ideas, you almost couldn’t hold ’em back.”


Making Sense of

Alberta's Bamford is a young veteran in country music business

Now John is really pleased that he made the decision to become an member-owner of Battle River Credit Union. His story is like thousands of other members’ stories:

Gord Bamford will be performing on the main stage Friday, August 2. Whether he’s opening for George Strait or playing for an intimate crowd in Meaford, Ontario, Gord Bamford puts his heart and soul into Canadian country music. The Australian-born, Alberta-raised Bamford has been making country music a priority for the past 15 years. But make no mistake the road to releasing “Day Job”, Bamford’s highly anticipated fourth CD release, was serious business. Released on April 6, 2010, the CD explores a time when Gord wondered if a career in music was realistic. While working a day job as a concrete truck driver, he discovered the freedom to explore country music in the security of that truck cab. “In that truck, I was on my own. I loved it. My mind could go wherever it wanted and it gave birth to many of my song ideas,” Gord says. “That’s when I realized I wasn’t done with music.” Shortly thereafter Bamford won Q91 radio station’s “Search for the Stars” talent contest in 1994, which included a recording session at a professional studio. It was a few more years before Gord would record his first full length album. In 2001 he began writing the songs for “God’s Green Earth”. During the recording sessions, Gord came across a song “God’s Green Earth” that had been sent to him from Nashville and was written by respected Nashville hit-maker Byron Hill. (Hill wrote Fool Hearted Memory, George Strait’s first number one single.) Once the album was finished, Gord sent a copy to Byron so he could hear how the song turned out. Byron heard something he liked and invited Gord to Nashville to meet and discuss both his music and future. Since that time, Byron has been co-producing and cowriting with Gord ever since. “Life Is Good” was released in 2004 to rave reviews and generated six Top 20 radio hits for Bamford. Songs such as “Life Is Good’, “Heroes”, “All About Her”, and “I Would For You”, firmly established Bamford as a serious entertainer in the Canadian country music scene. It was during these years, Gord spent a lot of time honing his skills on the road playing clubs, halls, and rodeos. For every mile under those tires, there was a story waiting to be told. Gord took advantage of each opportunity to write those songs and tell those stories. Numerous trips to Nashville, writing with Byron as well as other top songwriters, has sharpened Gord’s skills and have made him a sought-after collaborator in Canada. Gord’s third full length album titled “Honkytonks and Heartaches”, was released in September, 2007 and included four singles that topped the Canadian Charts. This album solidified his place as a bona fide hitmaker in the Canadian country music industry. His skills as a song writer are evident in the CD’s first three singles: “Blame it On That Red Dress”, “Went For One, Stayed Till Two”, racing up the charts to become number one top charting Canadian singles on country radio. Also on the album, “Postcard from Pasadena” and the popular single “Little Guy” are the type of country songs that Albums of The Year are made of. In December, 2009, Larry DeLaney (Publisher of Country Music News) named “Honkytonks and Heartaches” Canadian Country Album of the Decade. Gord’s hard work over the years began to pay off in 2008. He received his first ever Juno nomination for Country Recording of the Year. This honour was followed by the Calgary Stampede asking Gord to write the 2008 Stampede theme song titled “This Old Hat”. Later in 2008 at the Canadian Country Music Awards, Gord picked up four CCMA awards for Top New Male Talent, Record Producer Of The Year (with Byron Hill), and Video Of The Year for Blame It On That Red Dress (which also was a number one video on CMT). The Society of Composers Authors and Music Publishers of Canada (SOCAN) also recognized Bamford for his songwriting talents for his song Stayed ‘Til Two in November, 2009. It was one of the top three country music songs that achieved the greatest number of performances on domestic radio in 2008. In addition to his devotion to country music, Gord is a steadfast family man, working tirelessly to find ways to give back. The Gord Bamford Charitable Foundation and his annual charity golf tournament raised over $200,000 dollars in the past two years to support local central Alberta charities. The Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Lacombe Accessible Park Society, Lacombe Athletic Park and the Ronald MacDonald House Red Deer project have all been recipients of Gord’s charitable heart. He also collaborated with the Calgary Stampede Giddy Up Gala to create a heart-warming video for his song “Things Go Better With Love”, and was privileged to star in this video with special needs kids from the Calgary area. Family, country music and the western lifestyle make up the fabric of Gord Bamford’s life. It’s also the support of his fans, family and friends that keep him grounded. You only have to read the lyrics of a Gord Bamford song to realize he’s the real deal.

Travis Tritt will be performing on the main stage Saturday, August 3. Travis Tritt was one of the leading new country singers of the early '90s, holding his own against Garth Brooks, Clint Black, and Alan Jackson. He was the only one not to wear a hat and the only one to dip into bluesy Southern rock. Consequently, he developed a gutsy, outlaw image that distinguished him from the pack. Throughout the early '90s, he had a string of platinum albums and Top 10 singles, including three number one hits. Tritt fell in love with music as a child, teaching himself how to play guitar when he was eight and beginning to write songs when he was 14. Travis was determined to have a musical career, but his parents didn't encourage him to follow his instincts. His mother didn't mind that he wanted to perform, but she wanted him to sing gospel; his father was afraid there was no money in singing. When he was 18, he tried to settle down, work, and have a family but was unsuccessful – he was married and divorced twice before he was 22. He continued to play music while working various jobs, including one at an air-conditioning company. The company's vice president was a guitarist who gave up hopes of a musical career and urged Tritt to follow his dreams. Tritt quit his job and began pursuing a career full-time. In 1982, Tritt began his pursuit by recording a demo tape at a private studio which was owned by Danny Davenport, who happened to be an executive at Warner Brothers. Davenport heard the vocalist's songs and was impressed, deciding to take Tritt under his wing. For the next several years, the pair recorded demo tapes while Tritt played the honky tonk circuit. The singer was developing a distinctive sound, adding elements of country-rock and Southern rock to his honky tonk. Partway through in 1989, Warner Brothers' Nashville division signed Tritt, and his debut album, Country Club, appeared in the stores in the spring 1990. It was preceded by the Top Ten hit, "Country Club." Upon the release of his debut album, Tritt entered the first ranks of new country singers. His next two singles, "Help Me Hold On" and "I'm Gonna Be Somebody," hit number one and two respectively. "Put Some Drive in Your Country," which had a clear rock and roll influence, stalled at number four, since radio programmers were reluctant to feature such blatantly rock-derived music. Tritt had a breakthrough success with his second album, 1991's It's All About to Change went into multi-platinum territory. T-r-o-u-b-l-e, Tritt's third album, was released in 1992 – it had the number one single, "Can I Trust You With My Heart," and went gold. Tritt came back in 1994 with Ten Feet Tall & Bulletproof, which went platinum, spawned the number one single "Foolish Pride," and marked his highest position, number 20, on the pop charts. His 1995 compilation Greatest Hits: From the Beginning went platinum within six months of its November release. Restless Kind was released in 1996, followed two years later by No More Looking Over My Shoulder; Down the Road I Go was issued in fall 2000. Live in Concert appeared in 2007 from Big Bang while later that same year Category 5 released a new studio effort from Tritt called The Storm produced by the well known American Idol judge and musician Randy Jackson. Travis was in the film “Fishers of Men” in which he portrayed the character Eddie Waters. He is currently travelling the country on his solo-acoustic tour and giving audiences an intimate experience playing his songs, and telling stories in a rare and intimate experience.

Henderson is high energy Chris Henderson will be performing at the Molson Canadian Saloon Sunday, August 4. Originally from Estevan, SK, Chris grew up surrounded by the musical influences of many family members and friends, and mostly his father Don. In 2006, Chris won the 620 CKRM Big Country Talent Search, and from there a career in country music was born. After the release of “The Difference You Make” in 2007, Chris and producer Sean Hogan began work on a full length album called “Follow the Signs." In September of 2008, the album was released and since, there have been three single releases to Canadian Country Radio. “You Don’t Scare Me” was released in August of 2008, “All of Me” in February of 2009, and “The Cover of Country Weekly” in July of 2009. 2008 turned out to be a great year as Chris received four Saskatchewan Country Music Award nominations including: Male Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, Rising Star, and Single of the Year (You Don’t Scare Me). In June of 2010, Chris and the band were fortunate enough to be crowned “Saskatchewan’s Next Big Thing,” a contest sponsored by Big Dog 92.7 in Regina, Saskmusic and Astral Media. This opportunity has led to $20,000 dollars worth of prize money, and a major help to bringing new music to fans in the near future! Chris is one of the good guys in music today. Many people throughout the industry, and fans across the prairies have said that Chris and the band’s attitude and fun-loving demeanor are one of the important things that bring an impact to their high energy show!
