Vol. 20 Issue 1

2018 is off like a rocket and make no mistake about that. With the economy in the best shape that it’s been in quite a while, this has the music business and consumers pretty fired up about what is to come in this new year. You can sense this all in the music and in how the labels are being a bit more upbeat in their forecasts. When people have a bit more money to spend it moves across to our music industry and from the looks of it so far it’s safe to say that 2018 will without a doubt will be a very good year indeed. Major label artists have come out with a deluge of material as they get set to take on the powerful economy. Bruno Mars stepped it up with rising star Cardi B to take the new and well received “Finesse” (Atlantic) out for a spin. Superstar Justin Timberlake is out and about early with his new “Filthy” (RCA/RLG) track and radio from Top40 to Hot AC is loving this all big time. Strange pairings about at Country radio from rock ever strong as Carrie Underwood joins rapper Ludacris in “The Champion” (Capitol Nashville) to the teaming of Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line with “Meant To Be” (WB/WEA). This issue also celebrates the nominations for our 2018 New Music Awards. Once again NMW honors the very best from the major and independent artists arena. In addition to lauding top artists we also pay tribute to radio stations, their programmers, record labels and industry professionals. There is an open ballot on our website for our subscribers and the general public that allows all to have a helping hand in turning nominations into wins. The list of nominees were also put together by a voting process & the outpouring of attention from the general public was quite overwhelming. It’s that time of year to also celebrate the Country Radio Seminar aka CRS. Once again New Music Weekly will be on hand to participate in all of the festivities. This gives us the opportunity to break bread with many of the industry pros and to meet and great artists on a first hand basis to find out more about them and what their plans are musically for the new year. Much of the information that we gather from this event we are able to use for the entire year and there is really never a time when more industry folks and artists, along with radio and their programmers can be found gathered in one location. Last year CRS opened the doors to many new artists and we had the pleasure of hearing and seeing them for the first time. It was just last year around this time that we were first introduced to the band Midland. Their debut single “Drinking Problem”, first previewed to radio programmers at this grand event went on to hit #1, setting this act for more great things to come including their powerful follow-up “Make A Little”. Maren Morris also premiered “I Could Use A Love Song” and one year later she has taken that anthem to the very top of the Country charts. Quite a lot of great songs break first at CRS. The timing of having the CRS at the same time of our New Music Weekly nominations puts the spotlight on all artists, labels and the like. It lets us look back to where we were and gives us a road map to where we are going. Artists that shined brightly last year are set up to do even better in the future and a little attention from our nominations process can only help them do a little better. It will be interesting to see how many are around to do even better things in 2018 and we will be here to cover all of that for you to be sure. New Music Weekly continues to deliver the very best “tools of the trade” to help new artists break through. By was of our weekly charts, our STS tracking services and the media coverage we deliver, NMW is your very best bet for helping to break artists and bands from coast to coast. Our panel of reporting stations are in the corner of the independent artist and when a single is right for a particular format you can bet it will get the attention is so deserves. We applaud all of our NMA nominees and we wish them the very best as they move towards the winner’s circle. We also look forward to a great CRS.

Sugarland is one of our long-time favorites here at New Music Weekly. We have been tracking them from the beginning of their career and have been one of the first music publications to do so. This super all American country music duo consisting of singer-songwriters Jennifer Nettles (lead vocals) and Kristian Bush (vocals, acoustic guitar, mandolin). Sugarland was founded in 2002 by Kristen Hall with Bush and became a trio after hiring Jennifer Nettles. Signed to Mercury Nashville Records in 2004, Sugarland broke through that year with the release of their debut single “Baby Girl”, the first single from their multi-platinum debut album Twice the Speed of Life. Hall left the group in late 2005 due to stress before the release of the groups second album, Enjoy the Ride. This album produced their first two No. 1 singles (in the U.S.), “Want To” and “Settlin’”, and won the duo a Grammy for “Stay”. In 2008 they released their third album, titled Love on the Inside. This album produced three more No. 1 singles with “All I Want to Do”, “Already Gone”, and “It Happens”. Their fourth album, The Incredible Machine, was released on October 19, 2010 in both a standard and deluxe edition. Upon The Incredible Machine being certified platinum, Sugarland has sold in excess of 14 million records. Besides songs written with Kevin Griffin, Nettles and Bush write all of the band’s songs. In 2012, after recording a series of tours, the duo went on hiatus due in part to Nettles taking a maternity leave; during the hiatus, both she and Bush recorded solo projects. They officially reunited in 2017 and announced that they were working on new music together for Big Machine Records. This is our very special New Music Awards Nominations & CRS issue. We want to congratulate all of our nominees and we will forward to seeing many of them in the winner’s circle & we look forward to a great 2018 CRS event as well. 3

Justin Timberlake is finally back at it and the radio world is thrilled. As he is set to kill it during Super Bowl time, his new jam “Filthy” (RCA/RLG) is set for some grand numbers in the weeks to come. Maroon 5 are starting out where they left off last year. The current single from America’s top band in “Wait” (222/Interscope) is quite exceptional and expect some great things for them once again in 2018. Sofi Tukker has teamed up with the ever fabulous Nervo, The Knocks & Alisa Ueno for the single “Best Friend” (Ultra). With a solid team like this you get the feeling that is all about strength in numbers. Bruno Mars is off to a real rocking start in 2018. He’s out and about with the latest sensation that is Cardi B & these two are making great music together. “Finesse” is the jam that is making its way up the charts and in record time. Oh and did I forget to mention that Bruno was the real winner for this year’s Grammy Awards. He even picked up the biggest award of the evening winning Album of the Year. Congrats Bruno Mars on what turned out to be a very big night indeed. Newcomer Hayley Kiyoko is already setting the music world on fire as a solo artist. “Curious” (Atlantic) is the one that is turning in a solid number of believers. I’d get this one into rotation right away if I were you. Kesha is back in fine form and make no mistake about that. Her new track “Woman” (Kemosabe/RCA) is already fast becoming an anthem at pop radio and showing that it has solid legs. Troye Sivan is back at the format and is bringing the very best. “My My My” (Capitol) takes this artist to an even higher level signaling this to be a very good year for this talented artist. Machine Gun Kelly, joins forces with X Ambassadors & Bebe Rexha for a real powerhouse gem. “Home” (RRP/Interscope) is the track that is getting a big “thumbs up” from the radio world. There is no doubt in my mind that it should close out the panel in record time. I’m also happy to report that Dua Lipa continues to win over friends and supporters. “New Rules” (WB/WEA) is helping to add more stock to this already established talent. Keep your eyes and ears open for this masterpiece that should be a #1 soon. Newcomer Welshly Arms is getting quite the attention from many music and program directors around the USA. The single “Legendary” (Republic) is without a doubt a solid door opener that should serve the artist quite well. If the early numbers are any indication, you can expect a very bright future for Welshly Arms. The multi-talented Zedd has joined forces with the uber talented Maren Morris & Grey for a real monster single. Everybody is singing the praises of “The Middle” (Interscope) and for very good reason, it’s a solid winner from beginning to end so what are you waiting for? Garrett Young picks up where he left off last year with a solid powerhouse track in “My Oh My” (West Coast Collective). It’s the follow up to his #1 “Do You Hear My Cries” and make no mistake about it, this will be his second #1 single. Dianne Meinke has wasted not time in getting things going in 2018. “I’ll Be Here Waiting” (UVI) is her latest and what an amazing entry this is. It’s Dianne at her very best and by the looks of what has been going on for this single already over at Hot AC, expect some even bigger things ahead. A good many of the artists listed have a good showing for our current New Music Awards. Many of our subscribers and music fans in general had a hand in nominating the very best from both the major and Independent arena. Our official nomination ballot is now up on our website and awaits your opinion. We wish all of our nominees that very best in making it to the winners circle. There are also a number of radio stations, labels and industry professional that are also lauded for this year’s awards. Please take the time to participate so that we can get the very best outcome for all of the nominees for our 2018 New Music Awards. I’m also looking forward to meeting many of you for this year’s CRS event. Please join me in the bar for a cocktail and let’s get this party started.

Imagine Dragons are truly the hottest band in the USA. They prove it once and for all as their new “Whatever It Takes” (KIDinaKORNER/Interscope) makes bold moves bringing in a number of early believers. Those X Ambassadors are also back at it again and make no mistake about that. The new and solid “Ahead Of Myself” (KIDinaKORNER/Interscope) is truly a must add. Justin Timberlake is on fire at the format with several songs for your listening pleasure. “Filthy” (RCA/RLG) is one of them that seems to be getting plenty of attention. It will be interesting to see which one actually makes it to the top of the charts but we can guarantee that one or two will and in record time. Kesha is taking AC40 by storm and shows she is finally back on track. “Woman” (Kemosabe/RCA) is her latest and greatest and this track proves just how good this recording artist really is. Max and his pal Gnash have a song that has been around for a bit and nobody seems to be done with it. “Lights Down Low” (RAL/Sony) is the jam that is making the top of many AC40 lists around the USA. The team of Taylor Swift with her good friend Ed Sheeran & Future is heading to the top of the charts. “End Game” (Big Machine/Universal) is the one that is set for bigger and better things to come. Foster The People are getting their jam on and it’s a very good thing to see. Their new and improved “Sit Next To Me” (Columbia) is pulling in a number of our program and music directors which is an indicator that big things are in the works. James Gavin is making some rather big waves as his new “Hearts On Fire” (Capitol) takes flight. Be on the watch for some solid things ahead for this single and this talented artist. Also getting in on the action is recording artist Welshly Arms. The single “Legendary” (Republic) is quite amazing and you can expect some big spin moves ahead for this gem. Dua Lipa is a name that has been appearing on a number of charts from Top40 to AC. Now her single “IDGAF” (WB/WEA) is making some rather big noise and for good reason, it’s just that good and powerful. Save a little room on our radio playlist for this gem without a doubt. I’m also loving the new Carrie Underwood and Ludacris pairing. As strange as this all appears their lovely duet in “The Champion” (Capitol Nashville) is just what crossover radio is all about. Walk The Moon is also getting on the action at the format and for good reason. Their latest in “One Foot” (RCA/RLG) is so good that you just can’t put it down. Garrett Young is back at the format with a real monster single. The fast rising single in “My Oh My” (West Coast Collective) is his latest, the follow-up to his #1 “Do You Hear My Cries” and the numbers for this track tell the tale. Look for some rather big weeks ahead for the young and multi-talented Garrett Young. Dianne Meinke is also back with a real gem. “I’ll Be Here Waiting” (UVI Media Group) is without a doubt the best single she’s had to date. It’s the last track from her latest CD album “Lemonade Freshly Sqeezed” and now it’s moving to the top of many playlists on our panel. John Ratliff and his band Receptacle have a new single out and about doing some blockbuster things. “My Dear” (Ind) is the jam that is getting raves from many of our music and program directors. New Recording artist Patking is also making big wave at the format. “What Love Really Means” (Indie) is the track that is pulling in some rather impressive numbers. Watch for some big things ahead for Patking as this single shows signs of some real legs. Alice Merton is taking a stand and it appears to be working. “No Roots” (Paper Plane/Mom & Pop Music) is the track that is helping to put her on the map. Also making some rather big waves is Charlie Puth. His new and ever so powerful “How Long” (Artist Partners/Atlantic) is really rocking the free world. Charlie and many of the above artists are contenders for our current New Music Awards. The ballot with all the nominations is now on our website and now it’s up to you to help turn those nominations into wins. We wish all of our nominees a big congrats on their way to the winners circle.

Dolly Parton ‘honoured’ by Adele’s costume tribute Dolly Parton was “knocked out” when she saw a picture of Adele dressed up as her on social media. The Rolling in the Deep singer shared a rare snap on Instagram on Tuesday (30Jan18), showing her dressed up like the country music veteran. In the photo, she can be seen wearing an all-pink rhinestone suit with a low-cut white shirt and a big curly blonde wig while holding a guitar. Dolly, who gushed about the outfit in Adele’s comments, has since recorded a video response, which she posted on social media on Wednesday with the caption, “@Adele you’re so fabulous! I will always love you!” “Adele likes me? I was knocked out, I was so honoured. I was so flattered,” she said in the video. “I loved your outfit, I thought that was great. I think I had an outfit just like that back in the day - in fact, I thought that was a picture of me back in the day! “I was really touched with what you said, I was really honoured that you would even know me that well or like my music. So, I just wanted to thank you and say you’re making me look good, so if I can have just a fraction of your fans, that’d help me, help me buy some cheaper wigs and some more clothes, some more things. I’m gonna dress like you next time. I love you.” Adele, who topped off her look with shiny pink boots, a statement necklace, blue eyeshadow and long red nails, didn’t reveal the reason for her fancy dress when she posted the picture, which she captioned: “The effortless queen of song, Dolly Parton! We love you! We wish we could possess an ounce of your ability. You were the hero of our night! A hero of my life. I’ll always love you.” The 72-year-old singer has previously gushed about her admiration for the British star, and even referred to her signature cat-eye make-up in her 2016 song Head Over High Heels, on which she sings, “I painted my lips red, and my eyes like Adele.”

Lorde takes out advertising to thank fans

Lorde has taken a full-page advert out in the New Zealand Herald newspaper to thank her fans for “believing in female musicians”. The 21-year-old singer hit headlines after it was reported she was not given the opportunity to sing a tune from her Grammy-nominated album Melodrama at the awards show on Sunday night (28Jan18). The Green Light singer looked unamused while watching other stars nominated for Album of the Year, including Kendrick Lamar and Bruno Mars take

to the stage. Lorde also missed out on the Grammy itself, with Bruno taking home the prize for his album 24K Magic, but she didn’t let the disappointment get her down in the advert she placed in her home country’s national newspaper. “Oh, hi there! I’m writing this from New York City. (My brother) Angelo and I sat in Madison Square Garden last night and saw a lot of crazy and wonderful things,” Lorde wrote in the open letter, which was published as a full-page ad. “I just wanted to say thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for loving and embracing Melodrama the way you did. My nomination belongs to you. Thank you, also, for believing in female musicians. You set a beautiful precedent! All my love, Lorde.” The singer, real name Ella Yelich-O’Connor, also dotted several notes at the top of her letter, including “Met Stevie Nicks and almost cried,” “JAY-Z‘s hands are really soft,” and “Melo 4ever”, as well as SZA’s name with a crown over the top. Following the Grammy Awards, Lorde appeared to somewhat shade the ceremony in a tweet she posted the next day, which read: “IF YOU ARE DEBATING WHETHER OR NOT I CAN MURDER A STAGE… COME SEE IT FOR URSELF (sic),” alongside a link to buy tickets for her tour. Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich previously defended Lorde’s absence from the show, telling Billboard: “She had a great album, album of the year is a big honour, but there’s no way we can really deal with everybody. Sometimes people get left out that shouldn’t, but on the other hand, we did the best we can to make sure that it’s a representative and balanced show.” Lorde was reportedly offered the chance to perform as part of a tribute to the late rocker Tom Petty, but refused due to her lack of a solo slot.

Radio host accused of groping Taylor Swift gets new job

Taylor Swift fans are up in arms after the radio host who she accused of groping her has been offered a new job. David Mueller lost a court case he lodged against the Shake It Off hitmaker last summer (17) after a Colorado judge ruled in her favour, dismissing the DJ’s claims she was behind his exit from Denver station KYGO-FM after lying about a backstage meet-and-greet session in 2013, when he allegedly fondled her butt. Mueller, who was forced to pay Swift a symbolic $1 in restitution for his failed legal bid, has now relaunched his career under the pseudonym Stonewall Jackson at Delta Radio, with station owner Larry Fuss insisting the shamed DJ

deserves another chance. “I sat down with him face-toface in Minneapolis before I offered him the job and talked to him about it,” Fuss tells the Daily News. “He’s either the world’s best liar, or he’s telling the truth. I tend to believe his version of the story and most people who have talked to him face-to-face do believe his version of the story.” However, Swift fans are having none of it and they have launched attacks about Mueller’s hiring on social media, but Fuss refuses to entertain criticism about his decision. “Most of them need to get a life,” the radio boss says. “Most of the response I have seen this morning... there’s been quite a few on our Facebook page, and none of it is radio people, none of it is local people in Mississippi. It’s all originating from some Taylor Swift fan group somewhere. They’re telling people to go to this station’s webpage and post negative comments. “It’s just people who don’t have a clue, or don’t really have any knowledge of the facts,” he concludes. Meanwhile Swift fans have taken to Twitter to insist Mueller’s hiring goes far beyond any he-said/she-said issue, insisting it’s a slap in the face for sexual abuse victims amid the ongoing Time’s Up and #MeToo movements, launched by sex attack survivors and women’s rights activists. One fan tweets: “Larry Fuss,#TimesUp. You might want to look into the hashtag. Because I can tell you right now, the backlash you are receiving right now for your hiring decisions goes way beyond just Taylor Swift fans. This is about women, respect for women, and we will no longer be silent.”

Halsey and Iggy Azalea outraged by Grammy boss’

Halsey and Iggy Azalea have joined the stars attacking Recording Academy president Neil Portnow over his call for women to “step up” if they want to win more Grammys. Portnow made the remark while defending the mostly male winners at Sunday’s (28Jan18) prizegiving, and the backlash from female musicians has been cutting and swift. Pink and Charli XCX were among the first stars to express their anger about the president’s comments over the lack of female representation at the Grammy Awards, where only nine per cent of the 899 nominees were women, and now Halsey and Iggy have stepped in to take aim at Portnow. “Neil’s comment was absurd,” Halsey tweeted on Tuesday. “Female artists came HARD in 2017. But the nominees are selected by peers and their opinion of the music. Which means it’s a conversation about the standards of which the ENTIRE

“LANCO is on a roll not even a month into the new year” (Taste of Country) as the PLATINUM selling breakthrough band unleashes their debut album HALLELUJAH NIGHTS (Arista Nashville) this week. HALLELUJAH NIGHTS features 11 tracks co-written by the band’s lead singer and namesake, Brandon Lancaster.

Zac Brown/Sir Rosevelt’s latest offering, “It Goes On” (via Elektra) will be featured in new war drama ‘12 Strong’ -- a story of heroism based on true events that unfolded in the aftermath of 9/11, starring Chris Hemsworth and Michael Shannon. The track, a haunting, tender acoustic ballad tells a story about the resilience of love in the face of adversity, fear and doubt.

INDUSTRY expects women to uphold.” Iggy confessed Portnow had her “heated” with his “women need to step up Grammy-Boys-Club bulls**t statement”, and she urged women to boycott next year’s awards show if he doesn’t make amends. “Instead of being gracious and wearing white flowers on the carpet (bringing in the viewers for his telecast in designer gowns) women should consider if we NEED to take firmer action and stay at home in PJs (pyjamas) next year... see how that works out for Neil,” she tweeted. Women wore white roses on the red carpet as a symbol of solidarity with those behind the #MeToo and Time’s Up anti-harassment movements. Sheryl Crow has also weighed in on Portnow’s controversial “step up” comment, adding: “I wish the #Grammys would return to female/male categories. Who will young girls be inspired by to pick up a guitar and rock when most every category is filled with men?”

Russell Simmons looking forward to his ‘day in court’

Embattled music mogul Russell Simmons is eager to face off with one of his rape accusers in court so he can clear his name once and for all. The Def Jam Recordings co-founder was recently slapped with a $5 million (£3.5 million) lawsuit from filmmaker Jennifer Jarosik, who claims she was first assaulted by Simmons in 2011 in his New York City home, after he agreed to be interviewed for a documentary she was working on. Appearing on America’s Megyn Kelly Today show on Tuesday (30Jan18), she recalls Simmons allegedly coming on to her “aggressively”. “He started to kiss me and then he raped me,” she said. “I tried to force him off, but it happened so quickly and I just froze. I think I just froze.” Despite the reported incident, Jarosik admits she was “weak” and “forgiving”, and kept in touch with Simmons, visiting him in Los Angeles in 2016 after he agreed to co-produce her project. “He was a friend, I felt that I wanted to give him another chance,” she explained. However, after Jarosik rejected his sexual advances on that occasion, Simmons is said to have “pounced on her” and “proceeded to rape her,” according to her legal papers. At the time of the filing last week (ends26Jan18), Simmons issued a statement denying the claims, and he has protested his innocence once again, declaring the truth will come out in court. “This allegation is absolutely untrue,” he writes in a new release. “I look forward to having my day in court - where, unlike the court of public opinion, I will have the ability to make use of fair processes that ensure that justice will be done and that the full truth will

be known... “I did not do what this lawsuit accuses me of doing... The current allegations range from the patently untrue to the frivolous and hurtful. What I will not accept is responsibility for what I have not done.” Jarosik is the latest woman to accuse the rap executive of sexual misconduct. He previously denied eight other allegations and even took a lie detector test before Christmas (17) in a bid to prove at least one of the claims against him was bogus.

Justin Timberlake told to keep things clean at Super Bowl

Officials at the Parents Television Council have written an open letter to Justin Timberlake urging him to keep Sunday’s (04Feb18) Super Bowl Half-Time show clean for family viewers. The singer was part of the fiasco at the 2004 Super Bowl, ripping open headliner Janet Jackson’s top to expose a bare breast and TV watchdog groups don’t want a repeat of that - or anything like it. “It’s been a long time almost 14 years - since you, the Super Bowl and the Parents Television Council were all mentioned in the same news stories,” a council leader wrote on the organisation’s blog. “Much has changed during that time. You became a husband and a father. You became a generous philanthropist... You’ve become an advocate for worthy causes. And you’ve brought us joy through your music and your film performances. “The fallout of your performance during Super Bowl XXXVIII has left an indelible mark. You really threw us - and millions of parents who were watching with their kids.” “Our children are confronted with enough harmful and explicit content in today’s entertainment media,” the letter continues. “The Super Bowl, and particularly its halftime show, should be the hallmark of entertainment that’s both appealing and a safe place for the entire family.” The PTC note ends with a plea for Justin to keep things clean and family friendly on Sunday, reminding the star that some of the youngsters watching “may be hoping to emulate you one day”. Justin apologised for his part in the 2004 Super Bowl wardrobe malfunction and has assured the media, fans and parents there will not be a repeat in 2018. “We’re not going to do that again,” he said recently.

Quincy Jones doesn’t like Taylor Swift’s songwriting

Quincy Jones has slammed Taylor Swift’s music, describing her tracks as “hooks” rather than songs. The legendary producer is responsible for crafting iconic records such as Michael Jackson’s trio of albums Off the Wall, Thriller, and Bad, earning him numerous Grammy Awards over the years. In a new interview with American GQ magazine, Quincy heaped praise on artists including Kendrick Lamar, Bruno Mars, Drake, Mary J. Blige, and Jennifer Hudson when asked about his thoughts on the state of the music industry today - but also revealed that he isn’t a fan of Taylor’s tunes. “We need more songs, man. F**king songs, not hooks,” he told the publication. The 84-year-old went on to explain that he believes the Shake It Off hitmaker needs to work harder on her songwriting. “It takes work, man. The only place you find success before work is the dictionary, and that’s alphabetical. (If I was producing her record, I’d) figure something out,” he continued. “Man, the song is the s**t - that’s what people don’t realise. “A great song can make the worst singer in the world a star. A bad song can’t be saved by the three best singers in the world. I learned that 50 years ago.” Quincy, who was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2013, also claimed that fans of Taylor, who has sold 31.4 million albums in the United States, “don’t know” great songs, and also went on to describe his similar lack of admiration for Elvis Presley. “Yeah, motherf**ker couldn’t sing,” he added.

Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott gives birth to twin daughters

Hillary Scott gave birth to twin daughters on Monday morning (29Jan18). The Lady Antebellum frontwoman, married to Chris Tyrell, announced the happy news on her Instagram page on Tuesday, sharing a picture of two baby hats with “A” and “B” written on them. “Our family is thankful and proud to announce the arrival of our precious baby girls. They were born in the early hours of January 29th, 2018 and we can’t wait to share more about them in the days to come,” she captioned the snap. “Thank you to everyone who prayed and prayed for these little ladies, and thank you Lord for healthy babies. #twins.” Hillary and Chris are NMW - FEBRUARY 2, 2018

also parents to four-year-old daughter Eisele. Further details, such as the babies’ names or birth weight, have yet to be revealed. Their arrival is somewhat earlier than expected, as Hillary’s due date was originally next month (Feb18). The announcement came after Hillary skipped the Grammy Awards in New York on Monday night. Her close friends and bandmates Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood represented the group at the prizegiving, where the musicians were nominated for Best Country Album and Best Country Duo/Group Performance, and decided to take a cardboard version of the vocalist to make up for Hillary’s absence. Kelley and Haywood, who attended the awards show with their wives, sent her pictures of themselves posing with the fake Hillary before the event began, and Hillary revealed the funny but sweet gesture made her extremely emotional. “I started bawling and laughing equally,” she wrote on Instagram beside the footage from the Grammy Awards telecast of her bandmates holding cardboard Hillary as the nominees for Best Country Album were read out. “I literally have the best bandmates and family in the whole wide world. It’s been a bittersweet day not being in NYC, but I’ve never felt more in two places at once.”

Pink shares sweet moment in new music video

Pink has included her six-year-old daughter in her latest music video for Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken. The star’s little girl Willow makes a brief appearance, snuggling up with her mother and planting a kiss on her cheek. The new video highlights Pink’s work with The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). In a statement released on Monday (29Jan18), the 38-year-old shared her hopes for the video’s message and announced her plans to make a donation. “As a UNICEF Ambassador, I am proud to work with an organization that supports and empowers women and children around the world,” she said. The What About Us hitmaker added: “In honor of this incredible organization, in honor of this video for Wild Hearts, and in honor of girls and women all over the world standing up for themselves, I am going to be making a donation in all of your names to this wonderful organization, and I encourage you to do the same if the spirit moves you.” Pink premiered Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken with a powerful performance of the ballad during the Grammy Awards on Sunday (29Jan18) as Willow looked on from the audience, and she has become one of several stars who have taken aim at Recording Academy president Neil Portnow after he responded to the lack of female 2018 Grammy winners by telling Variety that women need to “step up”. “Women in music don’t need to ‘step up’,” Pink fumed on Twitter. “women have been stepping since the beginning of time (sic). Stepping up, and also stepping aside. Women OWNED music this year. They’ve been KILLING IT. And every year before this.” She added, “When we celebrate and honor the talent and accomplishments of women, and how much women STEP UP every year, against all odds, we show the next generation of women and girls and boys and men what it means to be equal, and what it looks like to be fair.”

Rita Ora keen to take on more acting roles

I would love to do things that involve power, or maybe something like a superhero.” In addition to reprising her role in the final instalment of the Fifty Shades franchise, Fifty Shades Freed, Rita has teamed with Liam Payne for the soundtrack of the movie. The duo shot a video to accompany their tune For You, which Rita really enjoyed working on with the former One Director star. “He’s super professional, and that’s fun. He’s obviously got a lot of experience in everything, and I definitely made a great friend during the process. He’s definitely a lovely person and a joy to work with,” the 27year-old shared. Though she is currently promoting her movie gig, Rita is also looking forward to hitting the road again with her new music – which she promises is full of “love and power”. “(I) definitely want there to be a moment of celebration. I haven’t been on the road for a few years, so it’s just gonna be like having a big party,” she smiled.

Rihanna ‘house-hunting with boyfriend in Paris’ 26

Rihanna is reportedly planning a move to Paris with her billionaire boyfriend Hassan Jameel. The popstar and Hassan, both 29, were spotted enjoying a romantic getaway in the French capital earlier this month (Jan18). However, a well-placed insider has now claimed that the couple were also looking for a home in the city, as it acts as the “perfect midway-point” between New York, where Rihanna often works, and Hassan’s home base in Saudi Arabia. “Paris is a six-hour flight from both New York and Saudi Arabia so it’s a good compromise,” the source told Britain’s Grazia magazine. “Rihanna has been looking for a property in Paris for a while and they’ve spent a lot of time there together. They both absolutely adore the city.” The source also stated that the duo, who have been dating since last spring (17), initially considered London before settling on the City of Lights, and are apparently “particularly keen” on the Saint-Germain quarter. Rihanna and businessman Hassan have avoided attending public events together throughout their relationship, and reportedly believe that Paris will be better suited to their low-profile relationship. “It gives them much more privacy than the U.S. or U.K., which is a huge draw for Rihanna. She almost feels free in

Paris and she finds she identifies with French people, who know their own minds,” they added. The reports of Parisian house-hunting come after it was recently revealed TW ARTIST SINGLE that the star is renting out her West Hollywood home for $16,500 (£11,800) a month. Some have speculated that Rihanna’s move away from Los Angeles may mean she now plans to focus more on her Fenty fashion label, which she showed twice during Paris Fashion Week, as well as Fenty Beauty.

Chuck Murphy Paying It Forward

For Chuck Murphy, the success with his song “Free to be Free,” with Big Coyote means wanting to give

back. After the song hit No. 1 at New Music Weekly, & both the Country and Adult Contemporary charts on National LABELRadio Hits and Independent Music Network, the Palmdale resident created a non-profit called Music and Kids so students ages 12-18 can learn music. “I established Music and Kids to bridge the growing gap between government-funded educational programs in music and private funding,” Murphy explains. First on the drawing board this year to propel Music and Kids is on March 10th and 11th with the inaugural Music and Kids Jr. Star Search at the Almond Blossom Festival. The event at George Lane Park in Quartz Hill is a karaoke-style singing competition where 50 vocalists will compete for 10 scholarships. Sponsored by the Quartz Hill Chamber of Commerce, the competition will include celebrity judge Carnie Wilson of the multiplatinum award-winning group Wilson Phillips. For every $2,500 raised, one child will receive 48 oneon-one weekly music lessons over the course of one year. Murphy also plans to visit schools where he can connect with students aching to have the opportunity he is offering. “We will be looking for the flowers in the field -- the students that are already standing out with their natural musical ability that may or may not be getting the ongoing education to develop their talent,” Murphy says. “We will help guide the students and parents with information and assist with scholarship funding when funds are available. ”Students must meet requirements –they must maintain certain grades and attend the lessons on time to continue participating in the program. Murphy’s goal is to raise enough money to help at least 1,000 students obtain a musical education in Los Angeles. As the program expands, he hopes to visit schools all over the United States to raise awareness of the number of opportunities there are for performers as players of musical instruments or singers; or the support team as songwriters, recording engineers, and producers. New Music Weekly has nominated Chuck Murphy & Big Coyote for Country New Artist of the Year and AC New Group/Duo of the Year. Chuck Murphy is nominated in the category of Country Breakthrough Artist of the Year. It’s recognition such as this that inspires Murphy to want to pay it forward with Music and Kids.

– In the firmament of rock ‘n’ roll’s first-generation creators, no artist looms larger than Chuck Berry. In a consistently innovative recording career that spanned more than 60 years, the iconic singer-songwriter-guitarist, who passed away on March 18, 2017, laid much of the groundwork for modern rock ‘n’ roll, while creating some of rock’s most distinctive and enduring anthems, from “Johnny B. Goode” to “Roll Over Beethoven,” “Rock and Roll Music” to “Reelin and Rockin’,” and many more.

Dan & Shay are back with a new gem that is getting quite a buzz out there in the Country radio world. “Tequila” (WB/WEA) is the cut from one of our favorite duo’s and this one finds them at their very best. Luke Bryan keeps the hits rolling at the format and make no mistake about that. His new “Most People Are Good” (Capitol Nashville) is fast becoming a real favorite among the panel of our music and program directors. Lanco has a track that is quite strong and powerful. “Born To Love You” (Arista Nashville) keeps pulling in some rather impressive numbers so watch for some big weeks ahead for this gem. LoCash is an act that we met up with at past CRS events. Since the very beginning there was something special about them and their new and effective single “Don’t Get Better Than That” (Reviver) will no doubt keep them back on the charts at Country radio for some time to come. I’m also happy to see that the Brothers Osborne are keeping the heat on all of the competition. They do it well once again as the single “Shoot Me Straight” (EMI Nashville) takes flight and good for this dynamic duo. Chris Bellamy is pulling in some rather impressive action at radio. Everybody appears to be loving the track “Rear View Mirror” (Silver Buckle) and for a very good reason, it is excellent. I’m also loving the new and fast rising single from our good pal Luke Combs. He really has it together and is showing it well as his new and thrilling “One Number Away” (River House Artists/Columbia Nashville) moves past the pack to much higher chart ground. Sugarland is also getting plenty of well-deserved attention. It’s all do to the single “Still The Same” (Big Machine/Universal) which could be one of their best in a long time. We’ll see how this all plays out for them in the coming weeks. Dierks Bentley is out and about with a new single that is pulling in some rather impressive early numbers. “Woman, Amen” (Capitol Nashville) is the one that is fast becoming a real favorite with our panel of Country radio stations. The pairing of the ever talented Carrie Underwood and rapper Ludacris appears to be making some world history. Many of the music critics are singing the praises of “The Champion” (Capitol Nashville) and this has all of the makings of a solid #1 single to be sure. Morgan Wallen is fast becoming one popular guy. “Up Down” (Big Loud) is the track that is adding to his already powerful stock portfolio. So far it’s been a ground-breaking past few months for this multi-talented recording artist. The most unlikely pairing so far in 2018 is the teaming of Bebe Rexha with her new fast friends Florida Georgia Line. Together this new team is taking the radio waves by storm with the tasteful and super red-hot anthem that is “Meant To Be” (WB/WEA). Look for this one to also hit the top of the charts in record time. You heard it right here from the Buckster. DK Davis is back at radio with yet another gem. His latest and greatest in “Old Enough To Know Better” (Route 66) could take him back up to the top of the charts. DK has been with us from the very beginning and it’s a thrill to see him back on the charts where he belongs. Lynnes has a good thing going at Country radio. The track that is making it all happen is “Heartbreak Song For The Radio” (Ind). You may want to spend a little more time with this one. Also pulling in some rather impressive activity is Michael Johnathon. His “Pirate” (PoetMan) is on the move and this should be a must add. Al & Trey, who are also nominees for this year’s New Music Awards are taking the radio world by storm as the new “Kings and Queens” takes off. Look for some big weeks ahead for them as they are ready to make their move in 2018. They are among a number of artists that are up for a New Music Award. Please visit our sight and place your votes to help turn nominations into wins for many of this great artists and bands.

C arrie Underwood is no stranger to the word “reality.” After all, as the winner of the 2005 season of “American Idol,” she won the hearts of millions of viewers across the world. Now, the singer has entered into a promotion that is sure to please her fan following. S ony Music Nashville and Aurasma, the world’s leading augmented reality platform, have partnered to launch an augmented reality promotional campaign for Underwood’s No. 1 album, “Blown Away,” which was released in May. U sing the free Aurasma Lite app for iPhones, iPads and Android devices available from the iTunes App Store and Google Play, fans can launch exclusive video of Underwood that is triggered by aiming the device at the cover image of Blown Away. The video leaps from the Blown Away image on the mobile device or tablet and provides a click-through gateway to the album at the iTunes store. The promotion was launched in Nashville recently at the CMA Music Festival.

“ Carrie Underwood is always looking for ways to connect with her fans,” said Gary Overton, Sony Music Nashville chairman and chief executive officer. “We are excited to embrace a cutting-edge technology like augmented reality to help give fans something special and provide a cool, unique connection between the artist and audience. Sony Music Nashville is excited to watch this fun idea unfold and is eager to partner with Aurasma on other future campaigns.” U pon its release on May 1, “Blown Away” made history by debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country albums sales chart making Underwood only the second country artist in the 47 year history of the chart to have each of their first four albums debut at No. 1. “Blown Away” also debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart making Underwood only the second country artist in history to have three consecutive albums debut at No. 1. “Blown Away” became country’s best-selling digital album debut since 2010. “ Carrie Underwood is a proven superstar. We are thrilled to partner with Sony Music Nashville to help increase the momentum of her smash album Blown Away,” said Jennifer Rapp, general manager of Aurasma. “By leveraging augmented reality to bridge the physical and virtual worlds, Sony gives the fans something exclusive and special, helping to keep fans connected and Carrie in the spotlight.” T he free Aurasma app runs on iPhone 3GS (and above), iPad2 (and above), and high-powered Android devices. Y esterday, Underwood performed the first of four concerts on the Australian leg of her tour to promote “Blown Away.” She kicked things off in Melbourne, and will perform in Tamworth and Brisbane on Friday and Saturday, before finishing things in Sydney on Sunday. Also, Underwood has just released the title cut as the second single -- to follow up the chart-topping success of “Good Girl,” which became her fifteenth number one record.

Country Date To Remember: February 11, 1962 Somewhere, around Fenton, Mo, there are some students who can say that they had one of music’s sexiest performers as a teacher. Sheryl Crow - long before she hit it big in 1993 with “All I Wanna Do,” was actually a music teacher at Kellison Elementary School. Though her teaching days in school are long over, Crow - who turns an amazing 50 years old today has educated many of her fans about some of Country Music’s greatest performers, such as Loretta, Hank, and Johnny Cash. Happy Birthday to one of Rock’s top women! NMW - FEBRUARY 2, 2018

This is our Best Of 2013…so far issue. Throughout this musical visit you will see many Indie artists rising to the top of our charts and a lot of the music perfect for your Summer playlist. You may want to consider being on our Future Hits volume #43. This compilation will get your song to “all of radio” and all tracks will be also serviced digitally through Airplay Access. Contact us this week and make yourself a part of music history. Are you up on These Hearts? Ryan Saunders, vocals, Kyle Colby, guitar/vocals Isaiah Folk, drums, Daryl Van Beek, guitar and Tyler Rice, bass make up this super red hot band. The recent release of the lyric video for “Miserable” has ignited their fans anticipation for their forthcoming sophomore album “Yours To Take” available this month. The new album can be heard live on the band’s headlining album release tour beginning in Joliet, IL. The band’s sound is a combination of honest, refreshing, spirited pitch-perfect harmonies with dynamic and emotive breakdowns. Carrying the torch lit by iconic Victory bands A Day To Remember and Taking Back Sunday, These Hearts has arrived and you read and hear about them first right here at New Music Weekly. The New York based indie rock band Born Cages is set to release their Sidelines EP via Razor & Tie. The band will hit the road this summer as well. Born Cages new EP was produced by Jon Kaplan (Walk The Moon, Augustana) and Oliver Straus (Arctic Monkeys, Matt & Kim) at Mission Sound in Brooklyn, NY. The band is finishing up their debut full length album to be released later this year. The New York City based Born Cages formed in 2011. Within one year the young band had already released an EP, opened two sold-out shows for Guns N’ Roses and shared stages with such bands as Gold Fields, Mother Mother, and Ludo. The band has had music played on Q104.3 in New York and recently recorded a session at the Gibson NYC showroom that premiered on Purevolume. They were also featured on a large billboard in Times Square as part of a Toshiba promotion. Born Cages is Vlad Holiday (lead vocals/lead guitar), Amanda Carl (keyboards/backing vocals), Steve Kellner (bass guitar/backing vocals) and Dave Tantao (drums). John Tejada has a new exclusive mix for Halocyan Records entitled “Somewhere” via Pitchfork. Have you been following Halocyan Records? This is a global dance brand and record label launched by Dimitri Fergadis, an acclaimed musician and founder of the LA-based experimental electronica label Phthalo Records. Halocyan is dedicated to representing not just the present and future of electronic music, but also its rich history. Halocyan believes that a strong sense of historical roots is an essential launching pad for bold voyages into the unknown. New York City-based retro songstress Joanne Weaver sets out to the Dominican Republic this month to shoot her new music video for “Nature Boy”, the latest single off her debut album Interstellar Songbook which she released in June of last year. The concept album is a collection of Joanne’s unique, psychedelic renditions of eight classic standards from the 40s, 50s and early 60s and is available on iTunes and CD Baby.
