Country Radio Seminar

2012

We always look so forward to the CRS in beautiful Nashville Tennessee. It comes at the perfect time of year just as

artists and record labels get set and ready for the new releases and this event provides the prefect launching pad. In this widespread industry it’s so hard to get everyone together and with CRS this is the one time you get find all of the artists and industry in one place. It appears to us that this is the earliest the event has been and we must admit that it caught us a bit off guard. Nonetheless our team swung into action and we’re set and ready to make the most of a good situation.

The CRS provides us as a publication, the opportunity to meet and interview many artists and bands. It gives us a much better insight as to what these artists are all about. There are numerous photo opportunities that this event provides as well. We caught the early rise of Country stars from Blake Shelton, Taylor Swift to the Band Perry, all of them we first met right here at CRS. This event also provides the opportunity to get together with many of our radio station programmers and industry professionals. Many of the record labels still attend and that is helpful to all, especially when you are getting set and ready to release a brand new single by a new artist or even an established one. For those of you seeing this publication for the very first time, welcome to our “new music revolution”. We combine the very best and most current chart information from both the major and the independent music artists. In our world all radio stations are treated as equals regardless of market size. With the many changes in the music industry, many artists have chosen to release product through the independent arena and New Music Weekly is here for them to keep track of how they are doing up against the rest of the competition. This publication has become an invaluable tool for many record promoters and labels that have been in search of ways to monitor the success of new artists and bands. NMW has recently released the nominations for our annual New Music Awards. Even in this special CRS issue you will see some mentions of artists and bands that are up for our annual awards. As of this writing we are in the process of launching a world-side broadcast of the “winners” in the coming weeks. The publication has also provided a vehicle by where the fans and friends of nominated bands and artists can vote for them on the magazine’s website. The votes will have a profound impact towards the final outcome. We urge all of you in becoming involved in this process as there are many deserving artists out there in need of your support. We are here to continue to be a voice for the many who need it. Our Spins Tracking System continues to provide critical reports and chart activity each and every week. The panel of our stations, as you will see in this publication, includes Top40, Country, Hot AC and College. NMW also provides a blue-print of radio station information right before your eyes. Our station reporters are very supportive of new artists and their music and many don’t really care what label the artists are on, they care about providing the very best music to their local listeners. We are looking forward to getting together with many of you during this rather short week. If we have not been able to fit your artist into our jammed schedule, be patient as we will get to most of you before the week is over. All of us want to welcome you to this on-going “new music revolution” and we’ll see many of your great artists and bands at the top of our New Music Weekly charts. Let the fun and games begin!

If you haven’t heard of Glen Campbell, where have you been? His new “Ghost On the Canvas” album is sort of the story of his life. It’s a song cycle, if you will – traces the arc of Campbell’s 75 years. From dirt-poor, tiny-town Arkansas origins to Hollywood triumphs on the pop charts, TV and movies. From barnstorming days of youthful touring to hobnobbing with Elvis, Sinatra and the Duke. From troubled free-falls of addiction and bad life choices to personal and spiritual redemption. It’s all here in this series of songs, starting with the prayerful invocation quoted above and concluding what Campbell has said will be his final album with a glorious, celebratory guitar jam featuring his own still-stellar chops alongside those of such colleagues and acolytes as Billy Corgan, Brian Setzer, Rick Nielsen, Jason Falkner, Marty Rifkin, Steve Hunter, and Tim Pierce. The album was largely written by Campbell with producer-collaborator Julian Raymond, complemented by contributions from Jakob Dylan, Paul Westerberg, Teddy Thompson and Robert Pollard, with evocative instrumental interludes composed by Roger Manning as musical illustration. Raymond, who squired 2008′s arresting Meet Glen Campbell, on which the artist matched his esteemed talents with vital material originated with such artists as Jackson Browne, U2, Green Day and even the Velvet Underground, here shapes a vision as unexpected as it is rewarding. We all saw his major salute at this year’s Grammy Awards and we will follow his progress through some very “trying times”. 3

Madonna had the biggest platform known to mankind with this year ’s Super Bowl and she took full advantage of the situation. Not only did she display a stellar performance, her new single “Give Me All Your Love” (Interscope) has exploded at radio. If timing is everything and I believe that to be true to a certain extent, Madonna has taken it to the wall. David Guetta has teamed up with the notorious Nicki Minaj for a red hot new single entry. “Turn Me On” (Virgin) has many of our music and program directors raving and that is always a good indication of some great things to come. Lady Gaga isn’t really fazed by all of the new Madonna attention as she burns up more spins for her latest red hot hit single “Marry The Night” (Interscope). After all, “Gaga” learned everything she knows from the “great” Lady Madonna. Drake has teamed up with Rihanna for some musical magic and the fun has just begun. “Take Care” (Cash Money/Universal) is the track that many of you are loving. Watch for some big weeks ahead at Top40 for this masterpiece. Hot Chelle Rae continues their winning ways. A recent multi New Music Award nominated act, they are burning ever so bright with their new “I Like It Like That” (Jive/Zomba). We all like it just like that around here as well. If that isn’t enough, Rihanna is also pulling in some big time spins for the single “We Found Love” (DefJam/IDJMG). I guess you could say that two hits are better than one but I believe she has a few others out there breaking as well. Pitbull has teamed up what Chris Brown (Rihanna’s ex) for a track that is getting a lot of action. “International Love” (J) is the one I’m talking about and it’s a solid Top40 winner. “Love You Like A Love Song” (Hollywood) from Salina Gomez and the Scene is still pulling in some rather impressive numbers. If you don’t believe me, just ask Scot Fink over at Hollywood Records and he will set you straight. David Cook, a former American Idol winner, is still getting raves and lots of new spins for his new “Fade Into Me” (RCA/RLG). Another “Idol winner” in Kelly Clarkson, is also moving faster than a speeding bullet with her amazing “Stronger” (RCA/RLG) single. Watch for lots of #1 action in the coming weeks for this solid monster single. Recording artist Steve Northeast is getting quite a solid reception at the format. It’s all thanks to his new “You’re the One” (Tidal Records) single that is getting plenty of “most added” action. Ali Mandelbaum continues her winning ways with the powerful “If-A-Man” (Almond Tree) that is lighting up many radio station playlists. Jason Mraz is back at the format and that is always a very good thing. “I Won’t Give Up” (Atlantic/WEA) is his latest and watch for some big weeks ahead for this gem. Young recording artist Emil has a good thing going and he wants the world to know it. “Since You Left” (Caper) is his red hot single and this New Music Award nominee also picked up “Favorite Teen Artist” during this year’s Independent Music Network Awards. The band that we all love in Rippin is also getting lots of love at the format. It’s all due to their new “I’m Alright” (TMG) that is rocking strong. Jimmy White continues his #1 ways at the format a well. “Hard Ride” (828) is his latest monster hit that even got him a Top10 at FMQB and lots of new Mediabase action as well. Yasmin Tayeby is pulling in some rather impressive numbers. Check out the track “Stranger” (Nile) and you’ll know just why. This is our big CRS issue and I look forward to getting together with all of you right now and the Bridge Bar.

There’s no artist more suited to the format than Adele. She has the perfect sound and style for Adult Contemporary and she displays it ever so well in the new single “Set Fire To The Rain” (Columbia/Sony). All of the acknowledgements that came along with the Grammy Awards, winning in all of her six nominated categories, are all so well deserved. Bruce Springsteen is back at the format and we all love that. “We Take Care Of Our Own” (Sony) another anthem from “the boss” is pulling in some rather impressive action from our music and program directors. Another music act that is the perfect fit for AC is Train. As we noted in our last column, they are getting some major waves for their latest single “Drive By” (Columbia/Sony). Watch for some very big things ahead for Train in 2012. Andy Grammer has become quite the sensation at the format over the past months. His latest single “Fine By Me” (S Curve/EMI) continues to win the hearts and minds of music lovers everywhere. Taylor Swift is getting some action on mainstream radio for her new one. “Safe & Sound” (Big Machine/Universal) is already getting top phones everywhere it’s being spun and that should tell you something. Roberta Flack is back at AC radio and that is always a welcome thing. Here latest offering in “We Can Work It Out” (429) reminds all of us about just how great a vocalist she is. Be on the watch for some big weeks ahead on this one as it has true “signs of life”. Adam Lambert is getting some raves from his latest release. An American Idol favorite, he’s pulled out all of the stops for his new “Better Than I Know Myself” (RCA/RLG). Speaking of all things “Idol”, it was great to see Heather Youmans, who first graced our New Music Weekly charts with “Girl To Change Your World”, get a golden ticket to Hollywood. It was equally sad to see her get cut during Hollywood week but a great accomplishment out of thousands none the less. The Black Keys are getting some major spins for their new “Lonely Boy” (Nonesuch/Reprise) so you may want to give that one some extra special attention come programming time. Newcomer Steve Northeast is off to a stellar start. His debut “You’re the One” (Tidal Records) tops many of our add lists and he’s a “most added” artist to be sure. Look for some big weeks ahead on this one. Seal is back at with “Let’s Stay Together” (WB/WEA) just has his marriage came tumbling down. “Tomorrow” (Cooking Vinyl/Downtown) from the Cranberries is a “one to watch”. Ali Mandelbaum is “on fire” as her new single “If-A-Man (Almond Tree) takes flight. The band we’ve come to love Rippin is also pulling in some rather impressive numbers for the new “I’m-Alright” (TMG) single. Both of the above we have to thank Jon Flanagan for. Jon is also a current New Music Award nominee for Top40 promotion. Kelly Clarkson keeps the heat on everybody just in time for season eleven (can that be right?) of American Idol. “Stronger” (RCA/RLG) is the track that many of you are loving. The Fray keeps getting raves for their single “Heartbeat” (Epic/Sony). and they are another solid act that the format just loves. Young recording artist Emil, another NMA nominee, is having an amazing run at radio. “Since You Left” (Caper) has had nothing but amazing week after week action from radio programmers from coast to coast. Jay Scott Berry is proving to be a “winner” with those magical female demos as his stellar new hit single “Wonderful Tonight” (Wedgetail) moves ahead of the pack. Cohesive has been scoring big with “The Only Difference” (KZR). Multi New Music Award nominee Jimmy White continues to dazzle the format with his #1 “Hard Ride” (828). Sad to hear of the passing of Whitney Houston, one of the best voices on the planet. Her talent will be missed but we will never forget. This is our CRS special issue and I look forward to announcing our NMA winners in the next issue.

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 Whitney Houston Emergency Call Not Released Whitney Houston’s emergency 911 call will not be released as it involves ‘confidential medical information’. The iconic singer was found unresponsive in a fourth-floor hotel room in Beverly Hills on Saturday afternoon, with no immediate apparent cause of death. Prescription drugs including Lorazepam, Valium and Xanax - used as sleeping aids, relaxants and to ease anxiety ‘ were reportedly found in Whitney’s hotel room. She is alleged to have been on a 48-hour drinking binge before her death. Despite requests for the contents of the late star’s call for help to be released, they have been denied. According to ET Online the 911 audio “involve[s] confidential medical information and are [therefore] exempt from disclosure.” First responders initiated CPR after finding Whitney’s unresponsive body in the hotel room over the weekend, however their attempts were unsuccessful. Coroner Ed Winter says there were no signs of trauma or foul play. Officials are not ruling out any causes until they receive the results of toxicology tests, which can take anything from four to eight weeks to be completed. Whitney is survived by her 18-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina and mother Cissy Houston. The legendary songstress’ body has been released back to her family. Whitney was flown back to her native New Jersey in a private jet and taken to Newark’s Whigham Funeral home, it has been reported. Her funeral has been scheduled for this weekend and it has been suggested her family are considering holding the service at Newark’s Prudential Center. The venue can seat up to 18,000 people and usually hosts sporting events. Whitney’s long-time friend Marvin Winans is expected to deliver the eulogy at the service, according to E! Online. The pastor ‘ who is based in Michigan ‘ officiated Whitney’s marriage to ex-husband Bobby Brown in 1992.

Keith Richards Scares Suitors With Knife

Keith Richards performs knife tricks to warn men off hurting his daughters. The Rolling Stones rocker has Theodora, 26, and 25-year-old Alexandra with his wife Patti Hansen. He is determined to look after them even though they are now adults so ensures their boyfriends know to treat them properly. ‘Sometimes he takes boyfriends to the other end of the house to show them some tricks with a knife,’ Alexandra is quoted as saying. ‘It’s to intimidate them a little, to warn them they shouldn’t make me or my sister suffer. But then he’s very pleasant.’ Alexandra is a DJ and she is dating Nick Cohen, who is also in the music industry. Theodora is a model who also studies art. Keith’s love of knives is legendary. He’s been open about enjoying playing with the weapons in the past, and in 2008 he hit the headlines after admitting he sometimes carried one around with him. ‘The actual cut doesn’t hurt. All the blood comes down, and then you kick NMW - FEBRUARY 17, 2012

the f**ker in the balls. It’s a very efficient way of dealing with problems. I learned it in Jamaica. I’ve always carried one,’ he said at the time. In 1975, Keith was taken into police custody when he was found roaming around with a blade in Arkansas. No charges stemmed from the event.

Robin Gibb Performs At Charity Show

Robin Gibb’s health looks to be improving as he took to the stage for a charity concert in London last night. The Bee Gees star is undergoing chemotherapy treatments after being admitted to hospital with liver cancer in November. Despite looking worryingly frail a few months ago, the 62-year-old looked in good spirits as he performed at the London Palladium with The Soldiers - a trio of servicemen. The musician sang hit I’ve Gotta Get A Message To You. He recorded the Bee Gee song with the three soldiers last year for the Poppy Appeal. Robin recently spoke of his improved heath following his diagnosis. “The prognosis is that it’s almost gone and I feel fantastic and really from now on it’s just what they could describe as a ‘mopping-up’ operation,’ he revealed in a radio interview earlier this month. ‘I am very active and my sense of well-being is good. ‘I feel better than I did ten years ago. I’m active, my appetite’s fantastic, the plumbing is all in perfect working order. If I had a choice about how I’d like to feel for the rest of my life, this would be it. If I wanted to tick all the right boxes about sense of well-being, it would be now. This is the way I’d like to feel. I don’t know how I could feel any better.’

Tony Bennett Calls For Drug Legalization

Tony Bennett has spoken out against drug laws in the wake of the death of Whitney Houston. At Clive Davis’ party on Saturday night, Bennett said while on the stage First it was Michael Jackson, then there was Amy Winehouse, and now the magnificent Whitney Houston. I’d like to have every gentleman and lady in this room commit themselves to get on government to legalize drugs. Let’s legalize drugs like they did in Amsterdam. No one’s hiding or sneaking around corners to get it. They go to a doctor to get it, [not] gangsters that just sell it under the table. Bennett performed at the gathering that changed from a celebration of the awards to an ad hoc memorial for Houston. He performed the Michele LeGrand and Alan and Marilyn Bergman song How Do You Keep the Music Playing, saying “This is a song Frank Sinatra asked me to sing. I’d like to dedicate it to Whitney. When I first heard her, I called Clive Davis and said, ‘You finally found the greatest singer I’ve ever heard in my life.’” Tony added to his

Vol. 14 Issue 2

comments today after saying that he had received “mostly positive” comments. He said that legislation would “get rid of all the gangsters that make people hide. One thing I’ve learned about young people, when you say ‘Don’t do this,’ that’s the one thing they’re going to try and do. Once it’s legal and everybody can do it, there is no longer the desire to do something that nobody else can do. I witnessed that in Amsterdam. It’s legal, and as a result there’s no panic in the streets. There’s no deals, there’s no ‘Meet me at the corner and I’ll give you something.’ You’re always afraid you’re going to get arrested. You have to hide. Why do that?” Bennett battled his own addiction to cocaine during his career, including a near fatal overdose in 1979.

Rihanna ‘Urged To Keep Distance From Brown’

Taylor Swift: I’d Run From Danger

Rihanna’s management are reportedly telling the star to cut ties with her ex-love Chris Brown. The former couple ended their relationship around three years ago after an argument turned violent. Chris was subsequently charged with assaulting the pop beauty and served with a restraining order. Rihanna and Chris seem to have struck up a friendship again following the messy break-up, with the pair taking to their Twitter pages to converse. They have also been spotted partying at the same clubs. Rihanna’s management are reportedly wary of the songstress treading on former ground with Chris. ‘Her management don’t want Rihanna’s career to suffer. She seems to be out almost every night and people fear it’s no coincidence that she and Chris have turned up at the same venue more than once,’ a source told Closer magazine. ‘Rihanna seems to still feel a connection with Chris ‘ even though he has a girlfriend.’ Rihanna’s team are reportedly becoming increasingly worried about the star. Insiders say they are pleading with the beauty to take time out of the spotlight. ‘She seems to have forgotten what a toxic relationship she and Chris had, and calls him the love of her life. People are becoming increasingly worried,’ the source added.

Taylor Swift would ‘run and hide’ if her life was in danger. The singer debuted the music promo for her new song Safe & Sound on Monday. The haunting ballad features on the soundtrack for the upcoming movie The Hunger Games. In the film, which stars Jennifer Lawrence, children must fight to the death on live television. Taylor insists she wouldn’t be brave enough to survive if she was in a similar situation. “I’’ve thought about this, because reading the books, you’’re so sucked into it that as you go about your life, you sit there, and you’’re like, ‘’Could I climb that tree?’’ ‘’Could I make a weapon out of this?’’ ‘’If I had to forage for food, what would I do?’’’ Taylor revealed to MTV News. ‘Honestly, I think I would just be the person who runs and hides. “I kind of freeze. You know how you have fight, flight or freeze, those three reactions to something scary? I just freeze.” Taylor read the best-selling postapocalyptic books by Suzanne Collins as soon as she was invited to record a song for The Hunger Games. She was instantly riveted by the young adult science-fiction series featuring heroine Katniss Everdeen. “I fell in love with the characters, fell in love with the world that Suzanne Collins had created. I was just so immersed in it. I’’m so excited for the movie. I’’m a fangirl!” the country star gushed. “When I got the call, I thought from what I’’d heard about the movie, ‘’It’’s an action movie, right? We’’re probably going to be writing a song that’’s like, ‘We’’re going to win!’’’ And then I read the book, and I thought, ‘’No, we’’re going to have to write sort of a death lullaby, it’’s so different from what I thought.’’ “

Science Fiction writer Kevin J. Anderson has announced that he will be writing a novelization of the upcoming Rush album, Clockwork Angles. He wrote on his Facebook page: After dropping hints for a while, finally the big announcement, a new project unlike any other I’ve ever done...and something that I consider very cool. Most of you are aware of my long-standing friendship with Neil Peart, the drummer and lyricist from the legendary rock band Rush, as well as how much Rush has influenced my work. My first novel Resurrection, Inc. was closely inspired by the Rush album Grace Under Pressure, and I can point to dozens of other novels and stories that bear a clear Rush influence. For more than twenty years, Neil and I have wanted to collaborate on something MAJOR, a way we could tie together our imaginations, and at last that’s happening. I’m writing the novelization of Rush’s

forthcoming album Clockwork Angels, their first new CD in five years. Imagine if someone had written the novel of The Wall, Tommy, or Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band when those classic albums were released. For Rush fans, CLOCKWORK ANGELS is that project. I worked together with Neil to flesh out the epic story told over the course of the music, as well as the artist Hugh Syme whose paintings fill the CD booklet. In a young man’s quest to follow his dreams, he is caught between the grandiose forces of order and chaos. He travels across a lavish and colorful world of steampunk and alchemy, with lost cities, pirates, anarchists, exotic carnivals, and a rigid Watchmaker who imposes precision on every aspect of daily life. To whet your appetite, Rush released the first two tracks, Caravan and BU2B - listen to those songs to get an idea of the story’s beginning. I’m writing the chapters now, incorporating the lyrics into the narrative, and having a fantastic time. More details to come, but for now-to quote a line from Caravan: “I can’t stop thinking big.” Kevin J. Anderson has written over 100 novels, 47 of which made best sellers lists, and has over 20 million copies of his books in print in thirty different languages. Among his books are ten in the Dune series, created by Frank Herbert, the Jedi Academy tomes set in the Star Wars universe, and his series The Saga of the Seven Suns.

Adele: Ex-boyfriend Deserves Credit

24

Multi-talented actress, producer and writer Rita Wilson announced today that she will make her solo album debut with the release of AM/FM, on Decca Records May 8, 2012. The album contains 14 tracks, carefully curated by Wilson along with her producer Fred Mollin. Wilson is best known for her acting roles in more than 28 films and numerous television programs. Rita was the driving force behind My Big Fat Greek Wedding and produced the film musical Mamma Mia!. She also starred as Roxie Hart on Broadway in the musical Chicago. A lifelong passion for music brought her many talents full circle to deliver an album release that is an extremely personal endeavor. She chose songs for the album that resonated emotionally with her, that told a story and evoked the era of the 60s and 70s which sparked her singing desires.

Adele has admitted that the man who broke her heart deserves ‘a little credit.’ In a new interview with Vogue magazine, in which she graces the cover, the singer says that her ex-boyfriend changed her life in ways she never imagined. The British songstress was emotional on Sunday night as she won all six of the Grammys she was nominated for and capped off an amazing run of accolades for her album 21. The record has sold 17 million albums and topped the charts in countries around the world, and the 23-year-old now says that she has to give credit to her former lover who inspired her lyrics. ‘You know, he was amazing. He was great,’ she told the fashion publication. ‘But it was never going to work. And for ages I was like, ‘As if he deserves any f***ing kudos for inspiring my record.’ ‘But now, after some time, it only seems right that the person who so far has had the biggest impact on me ‘ has now changed my life for f***ing ever with this album ‘ deserves a little credit. ‘I can do things that I never dreamed I’d be able to do. If I hadn’t met him, I think I’d still be that little girl I was when I was eighteen. ‘And the best thing is, I now know what I want for myself and from someone else. I didn’t know what I wanted before.’ Adele has now found love again with her new man Simon Konecki who was there for support at the annual music event. ‘He’s wonderful,’ Adele gushes about the charity

CEO. ‘And he’s proud of me, but he don’t care about what I do or what other people think.’ ‘He looks after me. I don’t think I would have gotten through the recovery for my surgery if it hadn’t been for him.’ But if fans are expecting another melancholy record from the outspoken starlet they will be disappointed as Adele says she wants her next album to be more positive. ‘Come on! I’m wife material! I’m great’ she exclaimed. ‘No one’s got to be brave. It’s not like, ‘You f***ed me over and I’m going to write a record and make you the most hated man in the world.’ I am never writing a breakup record again, by the way. I’m done with being a bitter witch.’ Adele added that she now has enough time to ‘write a happy record.’ ‘And be in love and be happy,’ she said of her plans for the future. ‘And then I don’t know what I’ll do. Get married. Have some kids. Plant a nice vegetable patch.’

Leona Lewis Sends Valentine’s Plea To Help Animals

Singer Leona Lewis has sent a Valentine’s card and letter to John Dalli, European Commissioner for Health and Consumer Policy, with a personal plea for him to help end the suffering of animals used in cosmetics testing. Leona’s card, sent in support of Humane Society International’s CrueltyFree2013 campaign, features a stunning photo of the ‘Hurt’ singer wearing an End Animal Testing body art message. The European Union banned animal testing for cosmetics in 2009, yet ingredients can still be tested on animals in other countries and then sold in EU shops. A ban on selling these animal-tested cosmetics is due to come into force in 2013 and would act as a major financial incentive for cosmetic companies to kick their animal testing habit. However, Commissioner Dalli is now considering a proposal that would undermine the ban by giving cosmetics companies a loophole to continue profiting from animal suffering. Leona wrote: ‘Like most girls, I love makeup, but my ethical principles are also very important to me. No new lipstick, eye-liner or other cosmetics ingredient can ever be worth the suffering and death of defenceless animals forced to endure painful toxicity tests. These gentle animals are killed by the hundreds in some tests, despite the fact that manufacturing products free of new animal testing is perfectly possible through the use of thousands of existing, safe ingredients. Animals have suffered enough ‘ if their pain has been deemed immoral within the EU, it must also be immoral outside the EU. To trade in their pain would be hypocrisy.’ In countries such as China, Brazil and the United States, animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, mice and hamsters are still being force-fed cosmetic products and ingredients, or having them dripped into their eyes or on to their skin.

Los Angeles modern rockers Attaloss are releasing their self-titled album on April 10, 2012, via Rock Ridge Music/Warner Music Group/ADA. Their new record showcases two sides of the band, the high energy blown out rock side and the stripped down acoustic side. Although the band name is a play on a common phrase many of us hear every day, there is an underlying message of optimism: “Even in these tough times, we must have hope for a better tomorrow,” states singer Danny Aguiluz. The band line-up also includes: Chris Johansen – Guitar, Matt Geronimo – Guitar/Vocals, Lorenzo Perea – Bass, and Dakota Clark – Drums. their unborn babies.

Johnny Cash Finds a Permanent Home in Music City

Mayor Karl Dean, the Cash family and friends and founders Bill and Shannon Miller welcomed press and industry executives to the future home of The Johnny Cash Museum on Tuesday, February 14, 2012. Located at 119 Third Avenue South between Demonbreun and Broadway, the museum will be en route between the tourist circulated Broadway strip and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Schermerhorn Symphony Center. “It has been a lifelong dream of mine to showcase Johnny Cash’s life and career in a world-class exhibit for all his fans from around the world to enjoy,” says founder Bill Miller. “Today we take the first step in making that dream a reality by announcing the birth of the Johnny Cash Museum, a worldclass attraction opening in downtown Nashville, Tennessee. This venue will feature the world’s largest, most comprehensive and important collection of Cash artifacts and memorabilia anywhere in the world. I am honored that Johnny’s children and family have joined us in enthusiastically supporting our project by sharing their precious NMW - FEBRUARY 17, 2012

artifacts with his fans.” The Johnny Cash Museum is projected to open its doors in summer 2012. Many never before seen historical documents, letters, awards, costumes and instruments will take the visitor on a three dimensional journey through Johnny Cash’s life with innovative interactions via the Nashville based Griffin Technologies. The museum unites the extensive and acclaimed collection of Bill Miller, longtime friend of Cash’s and founder of the official Johnny Cash website www. JohnnyCash.Com, and pieces from friends, colleagues and family members including his daughters, son and siblings. The collection will feature the earliest known Johnny Cash letters and documents as well as the handwritten manuscript to the last song ever written by the prolific songwriter, just days before his passing. Visitors also will be given an extensive look into Cash’s nonentertainment related life including his childhood and early adulthood and his service in the United States Air Force. The museum will occupy the site at 119 Third Avenue South with Phase One featuring a museum store, permanent exhibits and a multipurpose venue for performances, special exhibits and other events. Phase Two includes absorbing the balance of the ground floor space as it becomes available, as well as the top floor, bringing the ultimate square footage of the museum facility to 18,000 square feet. Plans include additional exhibit space, an enlarged performance area, an onsite food venue and working archives.

Jason Aldean is picking up right where he left last year with more hits at Country radio. You can add the song “Fly Over States” (Broken Bow) to his long list of credits and watch for some big weeks ahead for this one. “So You Don’t Have To Love My Anymore” (Capitol/EMI) by Alan Jackson is another winner from the big guy. Our music and program directors are all over this one and they tell us that the phones are lighting up for A.J. Phil Vassar is back with a solid Country single and even without the help of a major label. “Don’t Miss Your Life” (Rodeowave) is the cut that hit our “most added” list last week with some rather heavy firepower. Rascal Flatts are back with a new single called “Banjo” (Big Machine/ Universal). It’s another great one from this act that always gives us their very best. Let’s see if we can return the favor with another #1 single for them. Toby Keith is still firing up the hits. He does it again with “Red Solo Cup” (Show Dog/Universal) so I think I’ll just have to give out a big CRS toast to that one. The Zac Brown Band continues to deliver top notch entertainment. They prove my point with their latest in “No Hurry” (Atlantic/WEA). Marty Raybon has a real “winner” on his hands. That’s all thanks to his new “I’ve Seen What He Can Do” (Rural Rhythm) single that is “oh so good”. New Music Award nominee Erica Nicole has a good thing going at Country radio. Her new “What You Think About Us” (Heaven) is one fine single produced by Michael Lloyd. Word from our Los Angeles office is that Erica brought her band in for a special performance of this new hit single that you may see on our New Music Awards broadcast. Tim McGraw is back to his “winning ways” and he does it again with “Better Than I Used To Be” (Curb) just as he gets set to exit his long standing Curb Records home. “Drink On It” (WB/WEA) from Blake Shelton appears to be possibly his 11th #1 single. It doesn’t hurt that Blake has returned as judge on The Voice” (NBC), the new #1 music show in America right now. His “better half” Miranda Lambert is also as hot as any Country artist can be. She’s “out and about” with “Over You” (RCA/RLG) and “how sweet it is”. Josh Turner is rocking Country radio once again. “Time Is Love” (MCA) is the one that is making magic around Country stations all over the USA. Bryan Cole has a new hit single that many of you are raving about. “Love Doesn’t Live Here” (Perfect Vision) is the one and watch for this one to explode in the coming weeks. Brantley Gilbert is making quite the new at the format. With “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do” (Valory Music/Universal) you can expect some great things ahead for this talent. I also really love the new Kellie Pickler “100 Proof” (BNA/Sony) so that’s what I have to say about that. “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” (Republic Nashville) from the Eli Young Band is a real solid winner as I mentioned to you last time out. Susan Cattaneo is an artist that deserves your immediate attention. She’s another New Music Awards nominee and she proves she’s the “real deal” as her “Little Big Sky” (Jersey Girl Music) moves past the rest of the pack. Bobby Dean’s “White Lightning Or Pink Champagne” (Lamon) keeps him moving towards the top of our charts. Bobby’s another NMA nominee that deserves your support. Kelly Parkes (NMA Nominee as well) keeps the heat on everybody as her “Don’t Make Me” (Edge/LCR) builds spins by “leaps and bounds”. David Wood has a real good thing going as he takes “My Dash” (Dew Note) to new heights. David is also a well-deserved New Music Award nominee. My true favorite American Idol star ala Lauren Alaina has a solid single in “Georgia Peaches” (Mercury) that also deserves your immediate attention. Be on the lookout for recording artist Joey Canyon. He’s set to break all over radio with his new “Lonely Love” (Glo-Dot) coming to Radio the week of March 12th. As you all know by now, this is our CRS issue and it might just be time to find me at the Bridge Bar and buy me a drink. I also really love fried pickles.

T I M E F aith Hill At CRS: Attendees at this year’s Country Radio Seminar will be treated to a special performance from the beautiful Faith Hill. The singer will perform on Friday, February 24 as part of the Country Radio Seminar during the Warner Brothers luncheon. A superstar since “Wild One” topped the charts back in 1994, Hill is one of America’s most popular and admired entertainers. Her current single, “Come Home,” is the first single from her upcoming studio album for Warner Brothers, due in stores later this year.

R ascal Flatts Announce Tour: As one of the hottest touring acts in any genre, Country music supergroup Rascal Flatts announced today they will launch a brand new tour beginning this summer, Farmers Insurance presents “The American Band Tour.” The tour will feature an all band set-up with Little Big Town, Eli Young Band and Edens Edge opening. The shows will begin in Hartford, Conn., on June 15 at the Comcast Theatre. Please check www.rascalflatts. com for up to date tour information. “We are always looking for new ways to re-energize our live shows,” says Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts. “We thought bringing out these bands, whom are among some of our favorite vocal groups, would make a great night of entertainment!”

C raig Morgan Recognized By NRA:Craig Morgan, who served 10 years in the U.S. Army before launching his career as a country music hitmaker, has been declared the NRA Country Artist of the Month for February. Many of country music’s biggest stars, including Trace Adkins, Lee Brice, Montgomery Gentry and Justin Moore, have joined the “This Is NRA Country” movement celebrating their support of our U.S. military, appreciation for the great outdoors, and love of family. “As someone who has served alongside the brave men and women of our Armed Forces, I have a huge sense of pride in what this country stands for and what our freedom means,” shares Morgan. “As many service men and women make their way home and reunite with family, we are here to give them support and encouragement along with our gratitude. I am Craig Morgan and I am NRA Country.” K ellie Pickler Brings Ellen Some “Popcorn” : Kellie Pickler has always been one of Ellen DeGeneres’ favorite guests, and she likely endeared herself to the talk-show host on the January 27 edition. Pickler, promoting her excellent new 100 PROOF disc, presented Ellen with a unique gift - a jar of Popcorn Sutton’s Tennessee White Whiskey. The singer performed “Where’s Tammy Wynette,” from the album.

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 17, 2012

Dustin Lynch Sings for the ‘Angels’

70 miles separate Tullahoma, Tenn., from Music City. With that close proximity to Nashville, it’s no wonder that Broken Bow recording artist Dustin Lynch became so enamored with the sounds he was hearing on the radio growing up. “Nashville was obviously the big city for me growing up,” Lynch recalls to Billboard. “I can remember coming up here for the malls and the doctor’s appointments and the other big occasions. Each time I would see the skyline, there was just a feeling that would come over me -- ‘Man, I’m in Music City.’ It was always so exciting to be in Nashville.” He also recalls his first time going downtown. “My first time on Broadway, I drove myself up to see my first concert, the rock band Incubus. As many times as I’d gone to Nashville, I’d never gotten to go downtown. So, we rolled in with the windows down, and with all the people there and the music, I can never forget that moment.” The singer went on to say that even if you’re not into music in Middle Tennessee, it’s a definite part of the culture. “It’s something everyone from out of town thinks you’re a part of, even if you’re not. I can definitely see how it rubbed off of me at an early age,” he says. Lynch’s debut single, “Cowboys and Angels,” is quickly making an impact at radio stations across the country. He says it’s hard to believe the direction his career has taken. “It’s a dream come true,” he says. “I don’t know if it’s sunk in yet that I have a song on the radio. It’s a dream I’ve had for years.” True to the nature of the viral world we live in, his first time hearing a radio station play it was online. “I’m still waiting to hear it randomly. The first time I heard it, I knew it was going to come on -- so that took a little bit of the surprise factor off,” he says. “But, what was really cool about the first time was we were on the bus in Alabama with the record folks on the radio tour. WYCD in Detroit called and say that they were going to do a ‘New Music Spotlight’ at 1 o’clock. So y’all tune in. We turned it on and heard it streaming online on the bus. Just to hear it with the team that has been working so hard was really cool.” When asked about his heroes, Dustin mentioned two icons: Garth Brooks and Alan Jackson. “Garth is my hero,” he says. “I’ve been belting out Garth songs since I can remember. Alan is such a prolific songwriter, and has had so many hits over the years. Those two are my biggest influences.” Lynch definitely noticed how Brooks captivated his audiences - he was among them. “I think he’s universal to everybody. Just like with any music, there are people who don’t like him, but he appeals to the masses. Performance-wise, he owns the crowd like no one else on earth can,” Lynch says. “That’s what I was amazed with by him.” Though he is enjoying success as a singer, Lynch says he was initially bit by the songwriting bug. “A television channel was airing live rounds from the Bluebird on TV. I was watching that show with Dad, and I had just gotten where I could play and sing some. I didn’t realize that behind these Randy Travis songs, that there were really cool stories that the writers had. When I was 16, my parents let me come up here and play open mic at the Bluebird,” and from that point on, Lynch knew what he wanted to do. He’s very pleased to be associated with the staff at Broken Bow Records, which has become one of the top labels in town. “They’ve had a lot of success with Jason Aldean and Thompson Square, but the best part about them is that they are a family. Everyone cares about everybody, and that shows in the passion about my music. I’m excited to be a part of the team,” he says. Also a part of the team is producer Brett Beavers, who Lynch is very excited to be working with on his debut disc, set for release later in 2012. What are his thoughts on what he would like to accomplish this year with that album? He doesn’t miss a beat, saying “A few hits would be great, but just being able to do music would make me happy.” He says he’s staying out on the road meeting radio at a fast and furious clip, but there are no complaints. “You’re busy and everything, but I’m soaking it up, I promise. It’s not so overwhelming that I’m not smelling the roses as I pass them,” he says. NMW - FEBRUARY 17, 2012
