Nominations & CRS The perfect music combination

There is no better way to kick off the music year then with a trip to CRS (Country Radio Seminar) in Nashville. Even if you’re not a country act you also find music programmers from all formats visiting Music City to take a taste of what’s to come. Not too many years back a few artists from Blake Shelton to Taylor Swift all made a strong impact on radio programmers at this grand event and look what’s happened to many of these artists. We have always found this experience an invaluable one and it allows us to get up and close to many great artists and bands, giving us material that we can use in our magazine for an entire year. You won’t find this many radio programmers and recording artists under one roof and it all just keeps getting better each year. This issue also happens to be our annual Nomination Issue as well so the timing could not be more perfect. We get the opportunity to applaud the best music acts from last year at the same time that we are all looking towards the future. Not only are there many major artists on our list on nominations, we also provide a tribute to many of the independent artists as well, something that very few music publications actually do. The tribute to the artists also goes beyond that as we also nominate radio programmers, record labels and industry professionals. They are also extremely instrumental in the success of all the artists and without their support not much would have happened for them. Music fans and industry pros also had a hand in the nomination process. For well over a month the general public had the opportunity to log onto the New Music Weekly web-site and be a part of the nomination process. We must admit that we had no idea how much attention there would be for this event as a record number of people from the USA and around the world participated in the process. Now that our nominations have been revealed our same voting process will also apply in choosing our winners. Please take the time to visit us on-line and vote for the artists, radio programmers and others and have a helping hand in choosing the winners. New Music Weekly continues to offer some of the best “tools of the trade” in helping to break new artists. Many have gotten their start right here on our charts by starting their grassroots movement on our small and secondary market stations. All of our reporters are true music fans and really care more about the music that what label the songs are coming from. It’s amazing to us how many record promoters, labels, managers and publicists come to us each and every week with requests and information. Our STS system helps provide the tracking for the weekly charts and is second to none when it comes to accuracy. There are also a great many services provided through us that can help an artist or band in getting a record started. In this issue you will find a vast number of our nominees and they are asking for your support which they deserve. You will also find a solid mix of major and independent artists on all of our charts. For years we have been part of a “new music revolution” and that stands true to this very day. It has always been about leveling the playing field for artists, bands and record labels. NMW also continues to provide music services whether it be through Airplay Access or by our own Future Hits music compilation. As we mentioned at the beginning we are thrilled to be participating in this year’s CRS. It is our hope to get to visit with many of you in attendance and if for some reason we miss you there may be some of us holding court up and the Bride Bar. Once again we’d like to congratulate all of our nominees for this year’s New Music Awards.

Tobi Gordon continues working her magic in the music industry with her voice and charm. We’ve told you in the past about her rich heritage in her parents, grandparents and background singing in church, children’s camps, festivals, and now taking to the national stage with one of the best produced albums to come out of Nashville under the direction of veteran Hit Maker Robert Metzgar. This Oklahoma contemporary Christian artist has also been involved with assisting the hearing impaired for a number of years. Her charity work is fully described at tobigordon.com and connects her music to Cavett’s Kids in Oklahoma City where she supports underprivileged children who want to attend summer camp. Through the sale of her music product and personal appearances, Tobi Gordon and her husband Justin contribute to these children’s annual expenses in attending one of the most successful Christian summer camps. From her “Let’s Sing America” album on Platinum Plus Records Nashville, there have been three singles released over the past few years to domestic pop & country radio stations. Gordon’s Alison Krauss style vocals have dominated our NMW charts. In fact Ms. Gordon has had a song in the national charts every week for the past six years. She was elected the “New Artist Of The Year” by NMW magazine last year and nominated for “Female Vocalist Of The Year” and “Breakthrough Artist Of The Year” in NMW for 2014. Further information can be obtained by sending an email to her manager, Robert Metzgar in Nashville at robertmetzgar@aol.com or Capitol Management . 330 Franklin Road .

Beyonce is back at Top40 and in a very big way. Her new single “Drunk In Love” (Columbia/Sony) taken from her #1 new album is just what the doctor ordered. Also making the best of things at the format is One Direction. I hate to admit it but I just can’t seem to get “Story Of My Life” (Columbia/Sony) out of my head &many of our programmers feel the very same way about this infections tune. Shakira has teamed up with another powerhouse in Rihanna for a magical event. “Can’t Remember To Forget You” (Sony Music Latin) is taking the radio world over and in a good way. Watch for this gem to hit the very top of the charts and in record time. The pairing of Pitbull and Kesha has produced #1 magic. “Timber” (Mr 305/Polo Grounds/RCA) is fast becoming a pop anthem and it’s easy to see how that’s happening – it’s a solid single at that. Aloe Blacc is making the most of his recent fame. So much so that he’s taking “The Man” (Interscope) out for a spin at radio to amazing results. This guy is the “real deal” and make no mistake about the fact that a new star is born. Pharrell might be taking some major flack for that silly hat that he wore at this year’s Grammy Awards but that’s not stopping his new “Happy” (Universal/UMG) single from exploding all over pop radio. The fact that it’s also featured in a hit film also adds to the stock. Eminem has teamed up with Rihanna for a major hit record. “The Monster” (Aftermath/Interscope) is yet another gem featuring lady luck and with Eminem leading the charge this one is pure magic. I also really love the new Jason Derulo and 2 Chainz single. Entitled “Talk Dirty” (Beluga Heights/WB) this cut is getting some major traction and it so deserves it. Chris Brown is back and that might be a good thing. The wild and crazy Chris keeps running into trouble but he’s having no trouble in getting spins for his new “Loyal” (RCA/RLG) single. Also picking up action is our good pal and former NMW cover-girl Miley Cyrus. She’s back with another gem in “Adore You” (RCA/RLG) that seems to fast becoming a real favorite among our music and program directors. The fabulous Neon Trees are back at radio with a new gem of their own. “Sleeping With A Friend” (Mercury) is their latest and it’s so great to have this talented band back where they belong. The American Authors continue to rock the Top40 format with their powerful anthem in “Best Day Of My Life” (Island). Lorde really cleaned up at this year’s Grammy Awards and she’s doing it again at radio with her latest single “Team” (Lava/Republic) that is another infectious offering. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis didn’t do too bad at this year’s Grammy’s either. They have recently teamed up with Schoolboy Q for another winner to be found in “White Walls” (WB/WEA). For an outfit that started on an independent record label, these guys have set the bar for how to do it on your own. As you know by now this is our NMA Nomination issue. We wish to congratulate all of our nominees and wish them the very best. Some of the independent artists made the list including Allen D. His new single “You & The Night & The Music” (New Terra) has been on fire over the past few weeks and for good reason. Marsha Jewell also hit our nomination list a number of times just as her new single “Butterfly” (Jewell Lane) takes flight. You can help all of these artists take a nomination and turn it into a win by your votes on our web-sight. If you have any questions, especially during this year’s CRS, just look me up and you might just find me over at the Bride Bar. We’ll have more for you on the greatest Top40 hits in the world right here for our next issue.

Los Lonely Boys are back at AC radio and it’s about time. Many of our radio programmers are really loving their new “Don’t Walk Away” (Playing In Traffic) and for good reason. We’re still seeing some amazing action from American Authors. This red hot new powerhouse outfit has a real gem on their hands with “Best Day Of My Life” (Island) that is fast becoming a solid pop music anthem. Also making a bit of music history is the band Passenger. Their debut single “Let Her Go” (Nettwerk) is a solid track that has captured the hearts of radio listeners everywhere. If you are not playing it, now would be the time to treat your listeners to a real magical song. Matt Nathanson has become one of the most interesting and powerful artists in the AC arena. He’s back with another bit of magic in the single “Kinks Shirt” (Vanguard). New Music Weekly was one of the first to come to his attention and we’re so glad we did. Also continuing in strong fashion is the always brilliant Colbie Caillat. Her latest gem in “Hold On” (Universal/UMG) really puts her in a whole new league. Our music and program directors are all over this one big time. Having some help from super producer and One Republic’s Ryan Tedder has also been huge in making all of this happen for her. The real new kids on the block are Fitz & The Tantrums. From out of nowhere they are taking the music world by storm with the debut hit single “The Walker” (Elektra/WEA). This track is fast becoming the new darling track for our panel of AC reporting stations and for good reason. Imagine Dragons continue their winning ways at radio. The single “Demons” (Interscope) keeps them on top of the rest and there is more to come from this amazing band to be sure. Katy Perry continues to rule the music world. Her single “Unconditionally” (Capitol) is pulling in phones with every spin and the AC format especially is all over this one big time. Lady Gaga and her new best pal R Kelly have a good thing going too. “Do What U Want” (Streamline/Interscope) puts this strange pairing in for a winning combination. Come to think about it – the couple actually makes sense. Aloe Blacc is now the man of the hour. He burst on the scene as vocalist for Avicii’s “Wake Me Up” and now he takes his own step with “The Man” (Interscope). We wish the best to him as he is a solid talent. Newcomer Lawrence Preston is off to a rocking start. “Driving Me Away” (Gemstone) is the single that is making magic for him. We’ll see how it all plays out in the weeks to come but so far so good for this emerging talent. Bad Company lead vocalist Paul Rogers is back at radio and that is a very good thing. The man who brought you amazing vocals on “All Right Now”, “Feel Like Makin’ Love”, “Can’t Get Enough” and “Ready For Love” now takes the new “I Can’t Stand The Rain” for a ride and radio is already loving this single big time. We’re so glad to have the multi-talented Paul Rogers back at radio. Newcomer Cole Phoenix is pulling in some rather impressive numbers for “UFO” (Noble NoBull) and that should help move the single a much higher level. Multi NMA nominee Marsha Jewell continues her winning ways. Her new “Butterfly” (Jewell Lane) single has been on our “most added” list for almost a month now, a sign that this one could go all the way. Another NMA nominee Allen D is also rocking the music world with his new “You & The Night & The Music” (New Terra) single. All of the above really deserve your support and votes. Visit our New Music Weekly sight and led your hand in helping to choose your winners for this year’s New Music Awards. I’ll have more on the greatest AC records right here next time. Hope you are having a Great CRS!

ALL ROADS

LEAD TO NASHVILLE If you’re a musician, at some point, the city of Nashville will be in your plans. Music City USA has earned its namesake. For decades, aspiring young, and not so young country artists have packed up all of their belongings and moved to the birthplace of country music as we all know it. A few were overnight successes. It took others a while to make a splash. And still others found odd jobs and waited years, and finally got their break. While it’s true not everybody that sets out to become a country superstar makes the grade- in fact, it’s hard to be considered in the Nashville elite as an “A” lister- that doesn’t stop many from finding out what all the fuss is about. Nashville is still country music’s home. But it’s quickly becoming the home for artists of all genres to see, and be seen. There is one particular area that Nashville is successful in keeping traditional, and deems it important enough every year to draw radio station programmers and music directors to the city. Sure, it’s a party to some extent, but the Country Radio Seminar- CRS- is not duplicated anywhere in the country by any other radio format. There’s a lot to be said about your country music superstar. I take notice and pride in the fact that when an artist wins an award, more times than not, they will 16

thank RADIO as part of being their success. Country artists take the time to talk to stations, and in turn their audience base, and make them feel like they’re part of the family. Because, really, the listener is to the true country music artist. And vice versa. That’s why radio stations like the legendary WSM are known worldwide. Country programmers mingle with artists and attend seminars each year that both inform and entertain. Networking is everything. And it is much easier now than ever before to network and never spend a dime on hotels, meals, and functions. But then, you miss out on the true meaning of CRS. Shaking hands. Have a beverage. Share ideas. No matter WHAT you do in life, it’s always better to try and do it in person. CRS has never lost touch with that human element. CRS brings all together once a year to place a face with the name. Many programmers have gone for years. Many go one year, and move on, and never go again. Same with promoters and record label personnel. But truth be told, CRS is really a must-attend function for programmers, and artists, too. Showcases for new artists are months in the planning for a one hour set to grab somebody’s attention. It’s not by fluke that the Grammy awards named a country crossover hit, “Need You Now” by Lady Antebellum, as the song of the year. This multi-format hit had a hook that was unforgettable and all of us could relate to that one person that we really “needed” at some point in our life. Country is real. Country is home. Country is roots. Most, if not all that attend every year, leave with those sentiments. And a sad realization that it will be another year before we all come together again.

MUSIC BIZ Bieber’s trial date set Justin Bieber will face trial for his alleged DUI March 3. The 19-year-old pop star was arrested in Miami, Florida on January 23 after police say they caught the singer drag racing on a residential street. Justin was charged with driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an invalid licence and he is currently out on $2,500 bail. The Associated Press reports a Miami-Dade County judge has now set the trial to begin in four weeks. Prosecutors will formally file charges at an arraignment on February 14. His legal team has already filed a not guilty plea on all three misdemeanours. CNN reports Justin’s tests showed his blood alcohol content was .011 and .014, below the .02 limit for underage drivers. However, Miami-Dade County has a zero-tolerance policy. Police have also reported a urine sample taken indicated also had Xanax and marijuana in his system shortly after the arrest. Justin’s friend, R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff, was also booked on a DUI charge during the incident, but it’s unclear when Khalil will be heading to court. In addition to the drink driving charge, Justin was also a wanted man last week in his native Canada. The singer handed himself in to police following allegations he assaulted a limousine driver in Toronto. Justin’s lawyer has proclaimed his client’s innocence on that charge. The star is also suspected of causing $20,000 of damage to his neighbour’s home in Calabasas amid claims he hurled eggs at the property, and recently settled another case involving a bodyguard who accused him of assault. He was also charged with illegally spray-painting graffiti in Rio de Janeiro by Brazilian police in November.

Ke$ha postpones tour

Ke$ha has postponed her tour to continue treatment for an eating disorder. The Tik Tok hitmaker entered rehab on January 3, and at the time released a statement indicating she would stay at the facility for 30 days. But in a statement to MTV News, the 26-year-old pop star says she needs more time to focus on herself, and will remain at Chicago’s Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center for an indefinite period. “I was so looking forward to performing at these dates but I need to follow my doctor’s advice and get my health back on track,” she said. “All of your support during this time has been so amazing. I couldn’t have done this without you all. I look forward to coming back stronger than ever on the next tour.” Ke$ha was originally booked to perform in Hammond, Indiana on March 15 and in Green Bay, Wisconsin April 13, according to her website. The star reached out to fans last month to thank them for their support. “I just wanted to say that this is really hard and necessary work. I’m grateful for all the love and support,’ she tweeted. Ke$ha’s mother, Pebe Sebert, is meanwhile seeking treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder NMW - FEBRUARY 14, 2013

at the same facility alongside her daughter, checking in shortly after the star. Pebe has openly accused music producer Dr. Luke of contributing to Ke$ha’s disorder, claiming he made cruel remarks towards the pop star. Dr. Luke, real name Lukasz Sebastian Gottwald, has strenuously denied the claims.

Nick Jonas directing Demi’s tour

Nick Jonas is the musical and creative director of Demi Lovato’s Neon Lights Tour. The 21-year-old pop star, who split from the Jonas Brothers in October, told Rolling Stone magazine he took the job on just a few months ago. In an interview published on Tuesday, Nick said he’s been working tirelessly to craft the show Demi has been imagining, which kicks off in Vancouver February 9. “I’m overseeing video content, wardrobe, lighting and staging. And then I’m extending into the musical side of things, which includes creating the arrangements for the songs. I’m building what Demi wanted, which is a show without stops and starts,’ he revealed. Demi and Nick have been friends for years, with the Heart Attack singer even opening for the Jonas Brothers on their Burnin’ Up Tour in 2008. The group also collaborated on Demi’s album released that same year, Don’t Forget. And Nick believes the friendship they’ve developed over nearly a decade is making for a fruitful partnership. “I was immediately excited when I was offered the position. The relationship that Demi and I had over eight years really gives me the insight into how to best communicate with her and her team,’ he shared. Nick said he will be present for the Vancouver show, but he’s also planning to focus on his own work once the tour gets running. He said of his upcoming solo album: “Some of it is done and ready to be released. I’ve got a lot of things in the pipeline right now and I’m waiting to release some news about my music and my next steps.’

U2 get 3 million downloads

U2’s new song Invisible raised more than £1.9m for (RED) in 36 hours, by being downloaded free by over 3 million people around the world. For every download Bank of America paid $1 to the Global Fund to fight Aids, TB and Malaria totalling 3,138,470 and surpassing the original pledge of $2m. As a result, Invisible has now been available to purchase on iTunes for 99p with all proceeds going to the Global Fund. The video for Invisible is directed by Mark Romanek (Never Let Me Go, One Hour Photo) and will be made available later this week. A 60-second segment of the video was shown during the Super Bowl broadcast last Sunday which saw in excess of 1 million people download the track in one hour. The track was produced by Danger Mouse and mixed by Tom Elmhirst. The Global Fund provides life-saving HIV/ AIDS treatment, testing and prevention services to tens of millions of people in

George Michael releases new video

George Michael’s video for his latest single ‘Let Her Down Easy’ is now available to view. Over the years, George Michael has always blazed a trail in the way he has cast various stars and models in his music videos. From ‘Freedom 90’, when he cast the supermodels Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Tatiana Patitz, and Christy Turlington to the iconic Kate Moss who starred in the video for ‘White Light’. George auditioned hundreds of girls including well-known actresses and household names, who were all vying for the part. Not one for following the crowd, George Michael finally decided on casting the relatively unknown, yet strikingly beautiful Hannah Janes.

Beyonce and Jay Z to renew vows?

Beyonce Knowles and Jay Z will reportedly renew their vows in April. The couple are thought to have said “I do” again in 2012, when they celebrated their fourth anniversary. On April 4 this year they will be celebrating six years together and apparently the date 04.04.14 is particularly special to them as they are said to be “obsessed” with the number four. “Beyonce and Jay Z are more in love than ever and, as the number four is their lucky number, they want to mark this year and make it special,” a source told British magazine Star. “On 4 April - their anniversary - they want to have a small commitment ceremony in the garden of their mansion in Scarsdale, New York.” The pair married in private in 2008 and welcomed their daughter Blue Ivy in January 2012. She might only be two years old, but the little one is thought to be involved in the upcoming ceremony. “Around 30 family and close friends will be present. Blue Ivy is only two so she’s too young to understand, but they’re hoping she could present them with commitment rings on a pillow. It will really cement them as a family,” the insider continued. “No expense will be spared. They think it’s important to celebrate when things are going well. There will be free-flowing champagne, and music and dancing, with the celebration moving on to Jay’s 40/40 Club. After that, they have a Caribbean yacht cruise planned for four days.” Beyonce and Jay Z performed together at the Grammy Awards last month and looked more loved up than ever while on stage.

OneD ‘opening cafes’ One Direction are reportedly set to launch a chain of coffee shops. The cafes will be decked out in band memorabilia to give their fans a fun-filled experience. Insiders close to the British boyband say they have taken inspiration from another global restaurant which was backed by big stars when it launched in the ‘90s. “This could become the lads’ version of Planet Hollywood. That chain was backed by stars such as Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger when it launched in 1991,” a source divulged to Britain’s Daily Star newspaper. “The cafes will be very child friendly for younger fans and they’re sure to be stocked up with lots of 1D merchandise.” Reports suggest that the first cafe will open in the Japanese ward of Shibuya in Tokyo next week, where One Direction have a huge following. If the shop if successful then more will be opened up worldwide, with London the next city on the list. Locations in New York, Paris, Berlin and Sydney are also being looked into, reports the newspaper. “It could become one of the group’s biggest moneyspinners if it takes off. Everything linked to One Direction equates to success at the moment,” the insider added. The paper yesterday reported that the band are on track to earn a billion dollars this year thanks to their 2014 world tour, Where We Are. Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Niall Horan will embark on their 88-date stadium tour in April when it kicks off in Colombia. “It would be amazing for 1D to climb to the very top of the tour league so early in their career,” a spokesperson for the band commented. “That would be a phenomenal testament to the loyalty and support of their fans.”

Miley wants millions to follow

Miley Cyrus wants 20 million Twitter followers by 2015. The 21-yearold singer is active on social media and on Monday she made the announcement, telling fans she’s crossing her fingers her numbers will jump by more than three million within the next 11 months. “Hoping for 20 million followers by 2015,” Miley tweeted. Miley also announced a personal milestone, revealing she’s successfully kicked cigarettes for the last eight weeks. “2 months no cigs #proudofmyself,” the pop star wrote. Despite her seemingly good girl behaviour, Miley’s comments come shortly after the singer addressed her critics in a candid interview with America’s W magazine, insisting she has nothing to prove. “Anyone that hates on you is below you, because they’re just jealous of what you have,” she told interviewer Ronan Farrow. Miley also talked about her style icons, including Madonna, Blondie and Joan Jett. But the pop star had some sharp words ready when addressing her peers. “I just don’t get what half the girls are wearing. Everyone to me seems like Vanna 21

White,” she vented. “I’m trying to tell girls, like, ‘[expletive] that. You don’t have to wear makeup. You don’t have to have long blonde hair and big [expletive]. That’s not what it’s about. It’s, like, personal style.’ I like that I’m associated with sexuality and the kind of punk-rock [expletive] where we just don’t care.” Miley is preparing to hit the road for her Bangerz world tour, scheduled to kick off on February 14. But the defiant star insists she’s not looking for anyone’s approval. “You know, I’ve made my money. If no one buys my album, cool. It’s fine. I’ve got a house, and I’ve got dogs that I love. I don’t need anything else,” she said.

Gene Simmons slams ‘stupid’ rockers

Gene Simmons is tired of wannabe rockers being drawn to the “stupid rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle”. The KISS rocker doesn’t understand why so many up-andcoming musicians experiment with drugs or drink excessively. Gene, 64, insists there is more to being a rock god that pushing your health to the limits. “There is a smart rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle and a stupid rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle. No one ever talks about the intelligent one, while the stupid one has always appealed to many,” he told repubblica.it “But in the end the coolest rock stars are all dead. Perhaps they were the coolest, but they are dead now. Jimi Hendrix is dead, Jim Morrison is dead, Kurt Cobain is dead... I am clever and I’ll survive because I live a smart rock ‘n’ roll life. I’ve never done drugs and it’s a personal choice, I am not interested in harming myself. If you want to run your personal marathon you gotta go at your own pace, it doesn’t matter if someone else overtakes you, the turtle will win, and turtles know rock ‘n’ roll.” The bassist’s bandmate Paul Stanley echoed his friend’s remarks. He worries many youngsters have totally the wrong idea about being a rock star, insisting it is about your state of mind and following your passion rather than living a life of debauchery. “Being rock ‘n’ roll doesn’t mean having tattoos on your arms, earrings, or a bandana on your head. It means being free. You can live the rock ‘n’ roll life even if you are a doctor, or a cleaner. I never give too much importance to criticism; I just follow my heart and my passions. And this is something anyone can do, really,” he explained. “People think that the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle is stupid, or destructive. Mutilating your body and poisoning your mind in the name of rock ‘n’ roll is, in fact, stupid. You should get the best from your life, without giving up any part of it.” Paul would like people to understand it is hard work and being responsible that are the most important things, not pumping drugs into your body to try and get heightened experiences. He puts more value on being open, honest and proud of his achievements.

Electro-rock outfit, Vinyl Thief, have announced that they will be releasing a new EP, “Stop Motion,” this week - a preview to their upcoming full-length, set to release in Spring 2014. “Stop Motion” is the follow up single to “Smooth,” which Vinyl Thief released in August 2013 to much received buzz on the Hype Machine charts.

Bryan Sutton returns to Sugar Hill Records with his fourth solo release, Into My Own, available April 29, 2014. “The goal,” Bryan Sutton says,“was to try to make a record that only I could make.” Indeed, even a cursory listen is enough to establish that Into My Own, his fourth album for Sugar Hill Records, fulfills that goal—and does so in a way that reflects not only the instrumental virtuosity that his admirers have come to expect, but also the spirit and sensibilities of a musician intent on challenging himself to continuously grow in every way.

MUSIC BIZ Max George ‘shafted’ The Wanted

Platinum selling and Grammy nominated country star Jamie O’Neal, whose hits include “There Is No Arizona,” “When I Think About Angels,” Somebody’s Hero,” and “Trying To Find Atlantis” will release her first new album in five years titled ETERNAL. The 11-track collection is scheduled to be released March 18 on Shanachie Entertainment in partnership with O’Neal’s Momentum Label group and feature O’Neal’s own unique take on classic hits by Patsy Cline, Bruce Cockburn, Deborah Allen, Larry Gatlin, Emmylou Harris, Kris Kristofferson, Loretta Lynn, Juice Newton, Connie Smith, among others.

The Wanted boys apparently feel “shafted” by Max George. News the band were taking a break shocked their fans last month, but they will still embark on their Word of Mouth Tour, starting on February 14. Max, 25, spoke out about the split recent, claiming he and Nathan Sykes were more “prepared” than other members Tom Parker, Siva Kaneswaran and Jay McGuiness. “The boys think Max has shafted them,” a source told British magazine new! “They are really hurt by his behavior and decision to pack it all in. “Not only has he sold his story but there are deep-rooted problems within the band that he’s the source of, which have been ongoing for a while.” Siva spoke to Perez Hilton following Max’s comments, saying he was “disappointed” in his band mate. Tom and his girlfriend Kelsey Hardwick also appeared to respond to the singer opening up by posting angry messages on Twitter. Despite the recent events, there will be no changes to their schedule of shows. “Tensions are really high between the band but the tour will go ahead,” the insider said. “Max feels bad for selling his story and is desperately trying to stay in the boys’ good books, so there’s no way he won’t do the tour. “He also needs the money.” Max seemed to backtrack on Twitter by telling fans the split wasn’t “the end” for The Wanted. However, while addressing the future in his tell-all interview, the singer had seemed less certain. “We had a very difficult conversation. Our manager Scooter Braun asked us who would want to take a step out after the tour and try to do their own thing. Me and Nathan both said we have other ambitions,” Max revealed. “We were more prepared than the others because we’d looked at how things had been going with the band over the past few months. As upsetting as it might be to some of the other guys, I have to live my life. Nathan and I haven’t broken any promises either because we’re both going to be on the tour.”

Brown to remain in rehab

Arista Nashville recording duo, The Swon Brothers, have signed with Sony ATV Music Publishing Nashville. The two brothers have been writing songs since they were in grade school and now they are looking forward to joining the ranks of the many legendary tunesmiths who have been associated with their new publishing home.

Chris Brown dodged jail time on Monday. The 24-year-old singer faced Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James Brandlin for a hearing on his assault case in Washington, D.C., stemming from allegations he punched a man in the US capitol last October. TMZ reports Los Angeles prosecutors asked the magistrate to send Chris to jail for the alleged offense, citing that the star violated the terms of his probation stemming from the star’s 2009 assault on ex-girlfriend Rihanna. The outlet reports the LA District Attorney has reviewed the D.C. case and interviewed witnesses, determining there is probable cause to believe Chris

is guilty. Prosecutors claimed in court ‘Brown’s violent behavior continues to increase in severity and frequency” and that the singer poses “an increasing danger to society’, according to the website. While Judge Brandlin revoked Chris probation in December, he declined to make changes to the sentence at the DA’s request. The judge instead ruled Chris should complete his 90-day stint in rehab for anger management, noting that the star appears to be making progress. The Washington, D.C. case is ongoing, with TMZ reporting earlier this month Chris had rejected a plea deal that would have reduced the misdemeanour assault charge he faces. Chris has previously spoken out about how he believes he’s being treated unfairly. ‘For me, I think it’s more of a power trip for the DA,’ he told UK newspaper The Guardian last October.

Demi amped for Neon Lights

Demi Lovato can’t wait to meet her ‘Lovatics’ on tour. The 21-year-old pop star will give her first show for her Neon Lights Tour at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver on Sunday night. Taking to Twitter at the weekend the star gushed about her fans: ‘In less than 24 hours this place will be full of Lovatics!!!! VANCOUVER ARE YOU READY?!?!?! #NEONLIGHTSTOUR.’ Demi also shared a photo of the stage and the stadium as crews wrapped up the final details. ‘I’ve never been more excited for a tour in my life... It feels like Christmas morning!!!!!’ the star wrote over the weekend. Demi recently revealed she’s been working with longtime friend Nick Jonas to put the shows together. Nick, who split from the Jonas Brothers in October, told Rolling Stone magazine last week he took the job just a few months ago and has been working tirelessly to craft the show Demi imagined.“I’m overseeing video content, wardrobe, lighting and staging. And then I’m extending into the musical side of things, which includes creating the arrangements for the songs. I’m building what Demi wanted, which is a show without stops and starts,’ he revealed. Demi later admitted Nick was the natural choice for the role. The pair, both 21, have been close friends since she performed as the opening act for the Jonas Brothers on their Burnin’ Up Tour in 2008, and she’s impressed by his creativity. “Phil [Demi’s manager] and I were going through ideas for the tour and I always want his [Nick’s] opinion on stuff cause he knows exactly what he’s talking about,” Demi told MTV News. “And he had visions for this tour and he threw out some ideas and they were really good and we just thought ‘Why don’t you just do the whole tour, please?’ so it’s turned out amazing and like 90 per cent is his work.” The Neon Lights Tour is scheduled to travel across North and South America before ending in Monterrey, Mexico on May 17.

British heavy metal legends SAXON are pleased to announce that lead singer Biff Byford will appear on VH1 Classic’s That Metal Show this Saturday, February 8th. Biff will be calling into the show from the U.K. as the episode’s Skype guest as the band prepares for new projects. That Metal Show airs on Saturday at 11:00PM Eastern time. (L-R): Mike Inez (Alice in Chains), Dean Schachtel (UDR USA Product Manager) and Nigel Glockler Miley’s sneak peek Miley Cyrus has offered fans a sneak peek at her Bangerz Tour. The 21-year-old pop star is hitting the road February 14, with her first show kicking off in Vancouver. And the singer hinted there will be plenty of twerking during the trek when she took to Twitter at the weekend. One in a series of photos posted by Miley featured a girl on stage wearing stars and stripes as she put her back to the stadium audience and began dancing. The stage production appears to be all that Miley promised, with a technicolor background, lights and floor moving beneath the girl’s feet. Miley previous said she wants fans to see her ‘different world’ when they come to her concerts, revealing her desire to create an environment where she feels at home because she feels like an outsider most of the time. “I just want everything I do to feel like people going to a different world because people always make it seem I don’t fit in to what this normal kind of world is,’ she told MTV News. ‘So I want to take people out of the normal world and go into my world. I think that’s part of why I was inspired to have this alien theme for the EMAs. I just want it to feel like anything is possible and everything goes in the arena when I’m there, I’m pro everything. Everyone’s loved. Everyone’s accepted.” The Bangerz Tour is scheduled to trek through the US and Canada before heading to Europe, with a final show in Barcelona scheduled for June 13.

Sony Nashville artist, Angie Johnson joins the Tennessee Air National Guard, marking her continued dedication to the military and our country. The soulful powerhouse, whose debut single “Swagger” was a Top 20 single, decided to voluntarily join the Tennessee Air National Guard, after her previous unit in the Missouri Air National Guard was decommissioned. Johnson has had a busy past two years since her impromptu performance while deployed in the Middle East, of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep,” made her a YouTube sensation. Since then, she has appeared on NBC’S “The Voice,” released her debut “Sing for You” EP, and performed alongside country greats such as Martina McBride at the Ohio State Fair, and teen sensation, Scotty McCreery, as the opening act for the fall dates of his “Weekend RoadTrip Tour.”

Cher: Save dogs in Sochi Cher is urging fans to help save dogs from being euthanised in Sochi. The pop star’s pal has set up a charity to help rescue stray animals in the coastal Russian city, where the 2014 Winter Olympics are taking place. She shared a link to the Facebook page for PovoDOG, the first dog shelter in Sochi set up by the Volnoe Delo Oleg Deripaska Foundation, one of Russia’s largest private charity funds. ‘MY AMAZINGLY COMPASSIONATE RUSSIAN FRIEND OLEG,IS SAVING DOGS IN SOCHI!HE’S STARTED CHARITY ON FB CALLED ‘PROVO DOG’ PLEASE CHECK IT OUT,’ she tweeted on Sunday (sic). ‘THIS IS MY RUSSIAN FRIEND OLEG’S CHARITY IT WOULD MAKE ME SO HAPPY IF YOU’D JUST CHECK IT OUT.’ The shelter is reportedly financed by Russian billionaire Oleg V. Deripaska. According to the shelter’s Facebook page, PovoDOG has spent $15, 000 to create the shelter. ‘Annual operating costs are estimated at $56,000,’ a spokesperson writes. The New York Times wrote about the shelter last week. The newspaper’s David M. Herszenhorn reports animal rights workers have been ‘racing to save the strays from exterminators” who have already killed hundreds of animals on the orders of government officials in Russia. Last week, the shelter had rescued approximately 80 dogs. Workers are reportedly hoping athletes and visitors will consider adoptions.

Tim McGraw is back with another solid gem. “Lookin’ For That Girl” (Big Machine/ Universal) should do very well as Tim and his new label seem to be making magic together. Brantley Gilbert continues to build a huge base of music fans. His new release “Bottoms Up” (Valory Music/Universal) should help to take him to even higher places. I really love the new Chris Young single. “Who I Am With You” (RCA Nashville) is just another reason to put him on the top of your list. Those Florida Georgia Line boys just keep pulling out the hits. This time out they bring us “This Is How We Roll” (Republic Nashville) and it keeps them one pace ahead of the pack. Keith Urban is not only makes waves on this year’s American Idol but his music career is also rocking strong. “Cop Car” (Capitol Nashville) is his latest and it’s fast becoming a real favorite among our music and program directors. Blake Shelton is also back with yet another smash hit. “Doin’ What She Likes” (WB/WEA) is really pulling in the phones all over radio so you may not want to be the last one on this. Jake Owen is also starting the year off in a very big way. He’s taking the single “Beachin’” (RCA Nashville) out for a spin and so far so good. We’ll see how it all plays out for Jake in the coming weeks but my guess is that this one will hit the Top5 and very soon. It’s always great to have Rascal Flatts back in the mix. We’re still raving about their little unplugged appearance a few years back at CRS. They keep the heat on just about everybody with “Rewind” (Big Machine/Universal). There should be some big numbers ahead for this excellent offering. The Eli Young Band continues to impress us in so many ways. They do it all once again in the release of “Dust” (Big Machine/Universal) that is really solid. If you get the chance to see them live you are in for a big treat. MacLear & Quinn from Meg Records that made a big splash with “Sweet Summer Days” received three New Music Award nominations. They will kick off 2014 with their new single release “Only One For Me” this week at Country Radio. Make sure you watch for this gem and give them the support they deserve. Jason Aldean keeps getting raves from his “When She Says Baby” (Broken Bow/Sony) and we love it too. George Strait is doing just fine as he continues his music history class. “I Got A Car” (MCA Nashville) is yet another gem from the great one. Thomas Rhett with his brilliant “Get Me Some Of That” (Valory Music/Universal) continues his magical ways. There are a good number of independent artists making moves on our charts. Cheryl K Warner is a familiar name in this arena and we are happy to report that her single “If You Ain’t Shootin’ From The Heart” (CKW) is off to a stellar start. Those Smokey River Boys continue their magic. This time out they are pulling in stations for “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” (Platinum Plus) and keep your eyes and ears out for this one. Eileen Carey is back with “Let It Go” (Rolley Coaster) and that’s always a good thing. Tracy Newman keeps making bold and beautiful moves for “I Would Fly” (WHP). Gerald Smith has a good thing going and make no mistake about that. Many of our reporters are really loving the single “You Play Like Chet” (Melody Roundup Music) and for good reason. Doug Newnum & SOS Renewal has come together for some magic. “Where Would I Be” (Platinum Plus) is their latest and it’s all headed in the right direction. The label is also on our nomination list and we wish them the very best this year. A special congratulations goes out to NMA nominee Dennis Ledbetter who recently hit #1 on our Country chart with “If You Drive Me To Drinking” (Mallory Records). Nominee Michael Lynn is also having an impressive run with “Just Good Ol’ Boys” featuring Lanny McIntosh from the CMG label. Now let’s get our drink on at the Bride Bar.

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 14, 2013

NMW - FEBRUARY 14, 2013

Vol. 16 Issue 1


Billy Ray Cyrus ‘Hopefully, People Learn From My Mistakes’ Since 1992 and the success of a song called “Achy Breaky Heart,” Billy Ray Cyrus has learned all about busy schedules. Over two decades later, there is no sign the Kentuckian is slowing down. The singer is promoting his latest album “Change My Mind,” and has also just released his autobiography “Hillbilly Heart.” “It’s a very busy time,” he told Billboard over the weekend at Nashville’s Parnassus Books. “There was a song that I had a record on a few years ago called ‘Busy Man.’ I have found myself living those words in keeping up with all of this,” he said, referring to his top five smash from 1999. Cyrus goes into great detail about his youth in the book, with one memory concerning his father being a recurring theme of Hillbilly Heart. “Well, he gave me a lot of advice, but chapter one is called ‘Life Ain’t Fair.’ It’s the story about when my mom and dad were getting a divorce. I knew everything was messed up and different in my family as opposed to other families in Flatwoods, KY. One day, I asked him why things were like they were, and he pulled over, looked me in the eye, and said ‘Son, life ain’t fair. The sooner you realize that, the sooner you can move on.” Cyrus said he has replayed that conversation several times since whenever life’s highway has gotten rough. “Sometimes, you’ve just got to call it like it is, and do the best you can do with what you’ve been given. You work hard at your goals and your dreams. The book is dedicated to the dreamers. That’s another thing I learned from my dad -- no dream is too big to achieve. You’ve just got to chart a course, set a plan, and vow to pursue it.” When asked what he would like readers to take from the book, he says “There were a couple of times in my life where the rocket ride got a little fast, and you pray for purpose. I think it was a bit of my purpose to write this book. Hopefully, people might learn from my mistakes. I’m very honest about some of the ones I’ve made. If I can save someone from making some of the same ones, I think that’s the rhyme and the reason of the story. There’s also a few things I did right, and I think that’s something that some folks can borrow from and maybe help them to reach their goals and dreams.” He also talks about the stories of many of his biggest hits, including “Ready, Set, Don’t Go,” a 2007 duet with daughter Miley. “It was about those moments that you have in life as a daddy, where you see your little girl grow up. You think you’re ready to let go, and you prepare yourself for that moment, and you’re set. Then, as she’s saying goodbye, you want to reach out, hold her a bit longer and say ‘Don’t go.’ I still live it every day. I’ve got another little girl who just turned thirteen, Noah, so I’m living it through her. A lot of daddies and daughters have written me stories about that song, and how the song was played at weddings or graduations. One dad wrote me about taking his daughter to join the Army, and they listened to the song before they got out of the car. Things like that are the reason why I bought a guitar and started a band. The music touched somebody’s life, and it tends to make sense.” Having went through the whirlwind of “Achy Breaky” and “Hannah Montana,” the singer says “I’m at a pretty good spot in my life. I’ve written a bunch of new songs for an album I’m going to record this summer. I start a new movie the first week of May called ‘Like A Country Song’ that is filmed here in Nashville. I filmed a pilot with Randy Travis called ‘Still The King’ -- I play a dysfunctional Elvis impersonator who becomes a preacher. Randy’s the sheriff. It’s a great story, and I think it will find a home pretty soon. I love acting, being a singer / songwriter, and being here in Music City at this time in my life -- coming full circle with the book is quite unique.”

Flynn started singing professionally about three years ago. His first album, “Turn Back The Years”, was released in December 2009. A nice blend of Irish and American country, it featured songs as diverse as the Johnny McEvoy classic, “Long Before Your Time”, to Colin Raye’s “Love Me” and from the traditional folk song “Hard Times” to the Ernest Tubb number, “Thanks A Lot”. The album attracted a lot of attention in the Leinster region and provided Flynn with a strong platform to launch his singing career. However, it was the release of his follow-up single “Talking To Your Picture” that secured a lot of airplay on radio stations across Ireland, thus giving him his first major break on the circuit.

“I was honored to receive the Best Male Newcomer Award at the West Limerick 102 Country Music Awards in 2010,” says Noel. “My second album, “The Heart That Beats” in Ireland was released in 2011. It includes “Talking to Your Picture” which was sent to me by Richard Harte, “Wrong Oh So Wrong” written by Vic Holroyd, and “These Lips Don’t Know How To Say Goodbye”. This album is also a mixture of Irish and American country. “In January I decided to get a band together and hit the road. The band features Declan Reilly on bass and vocals, Padraig Harris on keyboard, accordion and vocal, Brian Walsh on drums and John Gleeson on lead guitar, dobro and vocals. I am delighted that my current single, a cover of the Don Williams song, “Lay Down Beside Me”, is getting great reviews and plenty of radio airplay at home and overseas.” Also my further two singles “The Way You Love Me” written by Mark Everett and “Let Me Be Your One And Only” written by Glen Flynn are both doing well on the airwaves as well. Flynn and his band look forward to performing at shows around Ireland and the UK in the times ahead.
