CRS MEETS NMA

It’s that time of year when we take our visit to the great city of Nashville for the annual Country Radio Seminar (CRS). This event really sets the pace for Country music and we get the opportunity to meet and interview many artists during this invaluable week of music activity. Many of the artists and record labels use this as a springboard to launch new artists and their releases and you can’t beat having most of the music and program directors on hand all in one place. From the New Faces Show to the fabulous lunch showcases, not to mention the late-night concert events, CRS pretty much has it all and more. We can only hope to have the strength to survive this undertaking. During this event year’s ago we were one of the first trade publications to interview a long haired Country artist newly signed to Warner Brothers by the name of Blake Shelton. He was a pretty quiet and humble guy back then but these days he’s got quite a bit more well-deserved confidence. We also covered a young rising Country Star in Taylor Swift as she ran around with her then glittered guitar. So many great memories and events have come from our time at the Country Radio Seminar. The CRS also gives us enough material and information to last an entire year which is invaluable to our publication. Not only is this a great place to launch Country music but many of the programmers in attendance also oversee a good many Top40 and Hot AC outlets. Well informed programmers from multiple formats are represented here at CRS. If you can’t seem to be able to work them on a country single, then you might fare better working them on one of their pop stations. It is also amazing to realize just how many people we work with here at New Music Weekly. For many of us it’s really more like a high school reunion of sorts but in this case most of us here are very eager to learn just a bit more about the ever changing music industry. This issue is also a celebration of our annual New Music Awards. Many of this year’s nominees can be found on the pages of this issue, Our annual award event not only pays tribute to great artists and bands but we also honor radio stations, music and program directors, record labels and industry professionals. Our system is also unique by the fact that the music fans and the general public have an effect on our winners and nominees by their votes and support on the New Music Weekly website. The fact that we have a fair mix of both major and independent artists also gives our NMA process a much more fair and balanced approach. In our world - all stations and artists are on a level playing field. The charts on the pages of NMW also reflect an open policy toward the independent artist and band. Many of the stations that report to us are from the small and medium market arena. They are far more open to adding new artists and care more about the music than what type of record label or campaign is attached to the project. A number of our reporting stations actually listen to the music and don’t pay as much attention to monitored national trends and numbers. It’s a bit old-school but serves the purpose of representing a more detailed picture of how the major and indie artists square up back to back. New Music Weekly continues to offer some of the best tools of the trade. From our weekly tracking services provided via STS, print and on-line advertising services to digital music offerings via Airplay Access, we continue to have an arsenal of solid weapons to assist labels and their artists with the things they need to help break a single at radio. From the outset this has always been about our own “new music revolution” and it continues to grow by leaps and bounds. We look forward to our time meeting with many of the artists here at this year’s CRS and to learn more about the emerging new music for 2017. We also want to congratulate our nominees for this year’s New Music Awards and we wish them the best through-out this amazing new year. All of us have the same goal and that’s to help revitalize our music industry by making it an even better place. We also can never forget that it’s really “all about the music”.

Randy Travis was born Randy Bruce Traywick on May 4, 1959. He’s one of America’s favorite country recording artists. He’s also a songwriter, guitarist, and actor. Since 1985, he has recorded over 20 studio albums and charted more than 50 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, and 16 of these were number-one hits. Considered a pivotal figure in the history of country music, Travis broke through in the mid-1980s with the release of his album Storms of Life, which sold more than four million copies. The album established him as a major force in the Neo-traditional country movement. Travis followed up his successful debut with a string of platinum and multi-platinum albums. He is known for his distinctive baritone vocals, delivered in a traditional style that has made him a country music star since the 1980s. By the mid-1990s, Travis saw a decline in his chart success. In 1997, he left Warner Bros Records for DreamWorks Records and changed his musical focus to gospel music. Although the career shift produced only one more number-one country hit “Three Wooden Crosses,” Travis went on to earn several Dove Awards, including Country Album of the Year five times. In addition to his singing career, he pursued an acting career, appearing in numerous films and television series, including The Rainmaker (1997) with Matt Damon, Black Dog (1998) with Patrick Swayze, Texas Rangers (2001) with James Van Der Beek, and seven episodes of the Touched by an Angel television series. Travis has sold over 25 million records, and has earned 22 number-one hits, six number-one albums, six Grammy Awards, six CMA Awards, nine ACM Awards, 10 AMA Awards, eight Dove Awards, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2016, Travis was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. This is our very special CRS & Nomination issue. We are thrilled and proud to be a part of CRS 2017 and we also honor the nominees for this year’s New Music Awards. Make sure to vote for your favorite nominees on our website and help turn nominations into well-deserved wins. We also look forward to meeting many of you at this year’s Country Radio Seminar. 3

Julia Michaels has become the hot new artist so far in 2017. Her debut single “Issues” (J/Republic) is an excellent entry and should serve her well in the weeks and months to come. Hey Violet has been fighting the good fight and it appears to be paying off big time. Their “Guys My Age” (Capitol) took a slow and steady start but things are going their way as this track builds strong numbers. Calum Scott is another artist that has been fighting the good fight. Also a bit of a slow starter, his Dancing On My Own” (Capitol) is now finally starting to be taken seriously and he’s quite deserving of this success, Lady Gaga has a million reasons to be happy the days Not only did her free performance at this year’s Super Bowl pay off big dividends, it has also helped her current single “Million Reasons” (Interscope) to get the attention it so deserves. It was quite the performance from the Gaga that will no doubt serve her well in the weeks and months to come. Kaleo is getting some love at Top40 and why not. From the moment I heard “Way Down We Go” (Atlantic) I got the feeling that this one could do some grand things at the format. You might want to spend a little more time with this one if you are not already slamming it into your programming schedule. Give this one a shot for sure. Fitz And The Tantrums have also been grinding their current single for all that it’s worth. First building at Hot AC, their “Hand Clap” (Elektra/WEA) is now making its way to the Top40 format. We’ll see how this all plays out in the coming weeks but they have most certainly got the most out of this cleaver pop anthem. Ed Sheeran is back after a very short break and make no mistake about that. His new “Shape Of You” (Atlantic) is nothing short of music magic and this one has some very strong potential. Bruno Mars is back where he belongs and that’s at Top40. After his stunning Grammy performance, his new “That’s What I Like” (Atlantic) is showing some big time progress and it appears that he has yet another winner on his hands. Marian Hill has created quite the buzz at the format. The new and grand master single “Down” (Photo Finish/Republic) is brilliant from start to finish and you can hang a big old gold star on this one to be sure. The pairing of Ariana Grande with Future has turned out to be a very smart move. “Everyday” (Republic) puts the spotlight on both of these multi-talented artists and this could be another #1 for both of them Starley has a good thing going and make no mistake about that. “Call On Me” (Epic) is so good that you can’t put it down even if you try. Give this one a few spins around the block and watch the phones and requests line up big time. The red hot and brilliant newcomers Horn And Holland have teamed up with Sam Trego for the powerful and jazzy “Oh Love” (Ind). This one really deserves your immediate attention. I’m also loving the new Zara Larsson and Ty Dolla $ign single. “So Good” (Ten/ Epic). It’s “so good” & this duo has put the music magic into every frame of this track. James Arthur is getting some well-deserved love for his single. “Say You Won’t Let Go” (Columbia) continues to build a world of believers and he so deserves each and every one of them. John Mayer is also getting some spins at Top40 and that’s a good thing for him. His “Love On The Weekend” (Columbia) gets him back in the game so to speak but he’ll need some additional support from more stations if he wants that to continue. The pairing of the Weekend with Daft Punk appears to be a solid winner. “I Feel It Coming” (XO/Universal Republic) is another strong track from this new dynamic duo. Chuck Murphy has a good thing going. His current “Peace Be With You” (One West) is moving to the top of the charts from here to Country and what a great track this is. Also getting some well-deserved love and attention is the multi-talented Renee Zawawi. She dazzled us with her debut “Happy Hour” and her current “Mom” single is now moving to the top of the charts. Both Renee and Chuck are nominees for this year’s New Music Awards and both deserve your love and support. You can help them and all of your favorites turn nominations into wins by your votes at newmusicweekly.com.

Ed Sheeran is without a doubt the darling of the AC format. His very latest in “Shape Of You” (Atlantic) continues to showcase his development as an artist. Ed always seems to keep you guessing as to which direction he can go and just when you think you know what his next move will be, think again. Newcomer Marian Hill is exploding on the music scene and in fine fashion. “Down” (Photo Finish/Republic) is the cut that is propelling this artist to new heights. Watch for some big weeks ahead for this emerging artist and make sure to remember that you heard about Marian Hill first right here on the pages of New Music Weekly Magazine. The best is yet to come. Head And The Heart have a good think brewing at radio. They are getting a tremendous amount of support for the single “All We Ever Knew” (WB/WEA). It might be appropriate time to spend a little extra time with this stellar piece of music. Calum Scott has been grinding it out and taking social media by storm. “Dancing On My Own” (Capitol) is the masterpiece that appears to be finally taking hold. There are only good signs ahead for Calum and we here at NMW wish him continued success. Lady Gaga continues to work her magic well after her amazing Super Bowl appearance. Her latest in “Million Reasons” (Interscope) was on a bit of a stall pattern but after that magical weekend things are back on track for the Gaga. John Mayer is back at AC40 with a single that showcases him at his very best. “Love On The Weekend” (Columbia) is yet another very crafty song from John who has taken a bit of time off from radio. Many of our music and program directors are all over this one big time. Eileen Carey continues to rule on the AC40 with her #1 “In The Air” (Rolley Coaster). Newcomer Julia Michaels is most certainly the talk of the town. She opens her radio drive with “Issues” (J/Republic) which is so crafty and catchy that one can barely stand it. You might find yourself playing it over and over until you really get it. Hey Violet has a good thing going and make no mistake about it. Their single “Guys My Age” (Capitol) has taken a while to unfold and now it’s back on the fast track. Train is back at the format and that’s always a good think for programmers. “Play That Song” (Columbia) is their latest and as it appears they have included a classic piece that is all too familiar to us in the mix, it all seems to work quite nicely and our radio panel loves it big time. Bill Curreri is back at radio with a solid winner “Feather In The Wind” (BCM) is his latest and what a great single this is indeed. After taking a little break from radio, Bill has come back to remind us about just how good of an artist he is. We’ll see how it all pans out in the weeks and months to come but so far so very good for Bill Curreri. Erica Lane is a new artist that many of you are raving about. Her debut single in “Wake” is all that and a bag of chips. Morgan Alexander is also getting plenty of love and attention at AC40. “Breaking My Heart” (Coast) is the jam that is helping her get there. Bon Jovi is getting some spins and that’s always a welcome thing. “Roller Coaster” (Island) is his latest and it’s always great to have him on the radio regardless of what format it is. Dianne Meinke is back with a smash hit single. “Secret Lover” is her latest and the early numbers for this track are out of this world. It even made #1 “most added” at the format recently and that tells us that there is something big in the mix for her right around the corner. Adele is blowing it out of the water with her latest in “Water Under The Bridge” (XL Recordings/Columbia) and that’s not a real shocker. There are more things to come from the great one who continues to kill at the box office of live concerts. Chuck Murphy has some solid NMA nominations and a huge hit with “Peace Be With You” (One West). Make sure to power this single out in the coming weeks and help us “rock the vote”. Jimmy White is also on the nomination list thanks to his latest in “Miserable Man” (828). Renee Zawawi who made a stellar debut with “Happy Hour” is now closing in on the top of the charts with “Mom”. Also a multiple NMA nominee, please include her with your votes and support. Joey Canyon is also getting some amazing chart support for “I Can’t Start Loving You again” and is a big time NMA nominee as well.

With the multi-platinum success of their band Good Charlotte, it’s easy to forget that its founders, twin brothers Joel and Benji Madden, were once small-town boys from Southern Maryland, who could only dream of hitting the big time in the music industry. “We created the band in our bedroom,” Joel says.

Vol. 19 Issue 1

“We were sleeping in the same bed wearing winter coats in a house that didn’t have heat talking about what it was going to be like when our band makes it,” - Benji Of course, they did make it. With their 5 full length albums, Good Charlotte have sold over 10 million copies worldwide, attracted an international fanbase, played headlining shows and festivals around the world, and earned a place in history with their radio-ready pop-punk sound captured on such albums as their 3xplatinum breakthrough The Young and the Hopeless. In the process, Joel and Benji have become international stars. In 2011, Joel was invited to appear as a coach on the highly rated Australian version of The Voice, which has just begun airing its new season. This year, Benji joins Joel as a coach on the upcoming season of The Voice Kids. The brothers also own and operate a fully functional recording studio in Hollywood where they write, record, and produce music for other artists. All the Maddens have ever wanted to do is make meaningful music. “We’ve always had the desire to do something timeless that could outlive us, “Benji says. They have already done that. The Young and the Hopeless was a genre-changing album, and they were only 22 when they made it. Turns out, though, it was only just the beginning. Joel and Benji have started a

new band called The Madden Brothers — a moniker whose simplicity reflects their earnest desire to express who they truly are. “Harvey Leeds, the guy who discovered us, used to say, ‘You’re like The Everly Brothers. Why would you be in a band? You should just be The Brothers,’ Benji recalls. “So the idea was to not hide behind a band name or a genre, write some songs, and find someone to record them and help us deliver the truest picture of who we are musically.” When you strip away the live theatrics and fancy production, Benji and Joel are classic pop songwriters at heart, in possession of a killer knack for melody, harmony, and heartfelt story-telling. They showcase these gifts on The Madden Brothers’ debut album, Greetings From California…, which Capitol Records will release this fall. The album is split into two “sides,” the first filled with upbeat, sunny pop-rock produced by their long-time collaborator Eric Valentine, who also produced Good Charlotte’s The Young and the Hopeless and 2004’s The Chronicles of Life and Death. With a cheery vibe and harmonies reminiscent of The Beach Boys and the Phil Spector sound, Side 1 features several hook-happy stand-outs, including the soulful, ’60s-inspired and lyrically unapologetic “We Are Done,” the unabashedly poppy “Dear Jane,” (with lead vocals by Benji, who sings lead of half of the album’s tracks), and the urgent love song “Out of My Mind.” “We knew we needed to work with Eric,” Joel says. “There’s a magic that happens when the three of us get in a room together. He really knows how to pull the best stuff out of us, not to mention he’s an incredible musician and writer himself.” On Side Two, The Maddens’ radiant sibling harmonies are again front and center on songs like “California Rain” and “Brother,” but the music is more earthy, with a warm blend of folk, Southern rock, and ’70s-era FM pop. To get the sound, the guys turned to Grammy Award-winning producer Joe Chiccarelli, known for his work with The White Stripes, The Strokes, The Shins, Boy and Bear, and many others. “We’ve never had a really organic and natural recording, where it was just us kind of naked and not hiding behind walls of guitars and production,” Benji says. “Joe can capture that unvarnished quality and make it sound great. He’s one of the last great classic record-makers.”

Both sides of Greetings From California… reflect The Madden Brothers’ easygoing, West Coast-influenced creative spirit, hence the title, which was also inspired by what they consider a full-circle journey making the record. It began to take shape during a visit to see their friend Pharrell Williams in Miami in early 2012. They had just come off an 18-month tour supporting Good Charlotte’s 2010 album Cardiology and had been talking about doing an album together, just the two of them.

“We went to see Pharrell because he’s someone we really love and respect,” - Joel “Benji brought an acoustic guitar and it felt like a repeat of us leaving home at 18 for California with just an acoustic guitar. Pharrell recognized that we wanted to make classic, California rock and roll and drew comparisons to the Eagles which inspired us even more. We wrote “California Rain” together that night.” The beginning of Side Two, “California Rain” marked a turning point for Benji and Joel. Lyrically, the song tells the story of the brothers’ East Coast to West Coast journey: “Let me take you back before the lights, before the crowd, before we made a sound / All I wanted was to make my mother proud / She told me ‘Son, we’re from the side of town, no one ever makes it out.’” “It’s about the dream,” Benji says. “It’s about the music industry. California is a magical place, and we liken it to the dream.” “We definitely wanted the song to be epic, because California is epic to us,” Joel says. “The song sums up our experience — past, present, and future. We still believe in the dream. We still believe that some kid somewhere can leave home with an acoustic guitar like we did, a backpack, and 40 bucks, and hitchhike down the road and make it to California.” 15

Remember the last time you went to a chain restaurant to celebrate someone’s birthday and the restaurant’s staff substituted a restaurant’s unique hand clapping “happy birthday” song for the traditional song? Did you give any thought as to why they didn’t use the traditional song?

ALL ROADS

Well, consider one further fact: A reported $2,000,000 in licensing fees have been paid annually to Warner Music Group who claims copyright ownership since a 1988 acquisition of several musical holdings which included the well known 120 year old “Happy Birthday to You” song. However, many dispute Warner’s copyright claim, arguing that the song is in “public domain”, available to anyone to use a musician, at some point, the city of withoutIffeeyou’re payment.

Alanis Morissette has $2 million worth of jewellery stolen

Vol. 19 Issue 1

Musician Alanis Morissette has reportedly lost $2 million (£1.6 million) worth of jewellery after burglars broke into her Los Angeles home. Law enforcement sources tell editors at TMZ.com, that thieves targeted the Ironic rocker, 42, last Thursday (09Feb17) when she was away from her home in the city’s Brentwood district. Editors at the gossip site report that other items may have been stolen in addition to Alanis’ $2 million stash of jewellery. The Canadian rock star, who became a mother for the second time last year (16), has also been the victim of white-collar crime as in January (16) her former business manager Jonathan Schwartz pleaded guilty to stealing $4.8 million (£3.9 million) from her. Jonathan, who has also worked with Lady Gaga and Beyonce, admitted taking the cash from the singer over a period of four years. He claimed he also took about $1.7 million (£1.4 million) from other clients. The rogue business manager’s plea deal calls for him to serve a sentence of between four and six years in prison. Alanis sued his partners at his former company, GSO Business Management, last year (16) but dropped the suit after reaching a settlement.

Boy George comes second in New Celebrity Apprentice final

Boy George finished in second place on reality TV show The New Celebrity Apprentice on Monday night (13Feb17). The Culture Club star went head to head with American Ninja Warrior host Matt Iseman for the final of the show, which tests contestants’ business and entrepreneurial skills. The finalists had to create an ad campaign, host a party and produce a variety show to raise money for their chosen charities. For the latter task Boy George recruited Caitlyn Jenner as a special guest, and she brought a cheque for $90,000 (£72,000), while TV personality Carson Kressley opened the variety show, Natasha Bedingfield sang Pocketful of Sunshine, and Boy George performed a song before grabbing Natasha for a duet of Culture Club classic Karma Chameleon. His competition Matt managed to book girl group Wilson Phillips, who performed their 1990 smash hit Hold On. It was revealed later in the boardroom Boy George had raised just under $446,000 (£357,000) for his charity, Safe Kids Worldwide, while Matt had managed to raise around $573,000 (£460,000) for The Arthritis Foundation, so host Arnold Schwarzenegger, who took over from former host and now U.S. President Donald Trump, chose Matt as the winner. “I’m really proud

of both of you,’ Arnold said, adding that Boy George “came in as the big star” who had to “look deep inside yourself” to make a comeback after he struggled midcompetition, but Matt was the “underdog” who blew everyone away with his perseverance. Proving he had no hard feelings, Boy George wrote on Twitter, “Well done @mattiseman I love u. Well done!... @ApprenticeNBC @safekids It was amazing to raise so much money for charity. I told @mattiseman I would be happy for him to win and I am!” Arnold also congratulated both finalists for “working their a*sses off” and added, “It was truly an honor to get to know both of you better and see you fight for your charities @mattiseman @BoyGeorge.” Boy George replied: “Thank you! It was great fun and an honour to do the show with you as our boss!!” Arnold had previously got into a dispute with Trump after the President said the current show’s ratings weren’t as good as when he was the host.

Mel B: ‘I’m so down to make Spice Girls reunion happen’

Mel B has pleaded with fans to be patient over a potential Spice Girls reunion as she’s “so down to make this happen”. Rumours first emerged last year (16) the British girl group could be reuniting to celebrate their 20th anniversary. However, after discussions with bandmates, the Spice Girls were unable to pull off the comeback. In June, it was claimed Mel, Emma Bunton and Geri Horner were planning to stage a Spice Girls reunion tour as a three-piece, after Mel C and Victoria Beckham reportedly declined to be involved. However, little progress has been made in putting together the reunion, and Mel was questioned about the status of plans as she appeared on Australian breakfast show Sunrise on Tuesday (14Feb17). Speaking via satellite from New York, where she is currently starring in Broadway show Chicago, Mel explained: “I’m trying everyone, I’m trying. I’m so down to make this happen, you have no idea. It’s just a case of getting everybody else on the same page.” The problems in organising the reunion stem from each band members incredibly busy schedules. While Mel is forging a career in musicals, Emma is a successful radio host and Geri has recently become a mother for the second time after welcoming son Monty. Victoria, meanwhile, has her fashion career while Mel C is concentrating on her solo career, having recently released her seventh solo studio album Versions Of Me. “This has been driving me crazy for the last God knows how many years. Trying to get everyone’s schedule on the same kind of situation is near impossible,

Mel B added on Sunrise. “I have set aside a lot of time this year to dedicate to a Spice Girls tour, so I’m hoping we can all have our schedules collide and actually make it happen. Because last year was actually our 20th anniversary so now it is going to be our 21st anniversary this year. I just hope that we can make it work!” The Spice Girls made a name for themselves with their debut single Wannabe, released in 1996, and went on to become one of the world’s most successful girl groups.

Justin Bieber takes another pop at The Weeknd

Almost Country Records’artist, Casey Donahew, had the opportunity to stop by KFRG to talk about his new single “Kiss Me” during his recent West Coast run. California was a welcome site for Donahew and his band, who have been battling ice and snow on the road to make it to their recent shows. KFRG PD Lee Douglas, Donahew, KFRG MD Scott Ward

Eighteen-year-old rising star Liddy Clark joins the ranks of strong female country singers and songwriters like Dolly Parton, Martina McBride, Shania Twain and Miranda Lambert by singing about love and heartache, a topic covered by many genres, but perfected by Country music, in her soon to be hit song “Single On Valentine’s Day” which exclusively premiered on Radio Disney Country.

RCA recording artist, Jake Owen, and PGA golfer, Jordan Spieth were paired for a third time at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Spieth was the tournament WINNER this week and the Spieth-Owen duo tied for third place with Josh Duhamel and Tony Finau, at 29 under par.

Justin Bieber has appeared to once again throw shade at ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez’s new beau The Weeknd. The 22-year-old singer took to Instagram on Sunday night for a live stream event with fans. As he fielded questions, Justin was asked to name his favourite song, to which he replied: “Ummm … Starboy by The Weeknd”. Following the catty remark, Justin burst into laughter for a full 12 seconds, before one of his friends is heard saying off camera: “Oh s**t, that was funny.” After laughing, the Sorry singer said, “Y’all that was too funny” before ending the live stream. It’s not the first time Justin has taken aim at The Weeknd, real name Abel Tesfaye. After pictures emerged of Selena and the singer kissing last month (Jan17), a cameraman for TMZ.com asked Justin if he would still listen to The Weeknd’s music. “Hell no I can’t listen to a Weeknd song,” he replied. “That s**t’s whack (bad).” Justin and Selena dated on and off from 2010 to 2014. While they have both had short-lived romances with other people since, Selena’s new relationship with The Weeknd has been her most prominent so far. Selena appears to have commented on her former romance with Justin in her new song It Ain’t Me, which is due for release on Thursday (16Feb17). The new track features the lyrics: “I had a dream/We were back to 17/Summer nights and libertines/Never growing up...” and a first listen prompted the star’s fans to suggest the song is about Justin, who she started dating when she was just 17. It Ain’t Me also features Norwegian DJ, songwriter and musician Kygo as a co-writer. He is also featured in the cover art for the new single, alongside Selena, who released her last studio album, Revival, in 2015. She is currently working on her third record.

Katherine Jackson’s nephew speaks out about family vendetta

Katherine Jackson’s nephew has broken his silence after the famous family’s matriarch accused him of stealing from her and won a restraining order against him. Trent Lamar Jackson has been accused of emotionally abusing his aunt for years, but during a Crime Stories With Nancy Grace podcast on Monday (13Feb17), he denied taking advantage of the 86-yearold. He told Grace he knew nothing of her plans to end his employment as a family driver and kick him out of his Calabasas, California home when Katherine left for England to visit her daughter Janet’s baby last month (Jan17). “My aunt left me paying the bills and taking care of the household when she got over there,” he says. “We haven’t heard from her since she left. It seems to me that someone is over there putting all these things together, going after me so they can control my aunt, I guess. I don’t know.” Trent, 52, claims he hasn’t been served with the restraining order and he’s still living in the Calabasas home he has reportedly been ordered to vacate. “I’m still at the house right now, and we’re all puzzled at why we can’t contact her and talk to her,” he adds. “She has attorneys that make sure her money is being advocated in the right way, and we also have an accountant that also looks at the bank statement, and it’s gonna be strange when you look at those bank statements, you’re gonna really see whos manipulating her with her money, and it’s not me... I just can’t understand why they’re making these accusations.” Trent claims he has been paying Mrs. Jackson’s bills for 15 years - a job he was given by her son, the late Michael Jackson: “That was my job - to be her driver, her provider, far as taking care of her, making sure she’s taking her medicine, making sure she’s going to the doctor,” he states. “These are the things Michael told me to do for her, and I’ve been doing these things

for her - very well, by the way - and people who know me, know that this is the second time this has happened. They did this to me before. “If some family members are still unhappy with the situation Michael made, and they feel like if they could control their mom the way that they want it... I would like to know what is it they’re trying to do.” “They are keeping her totally in the dark,” he adds. “One thing they don’t understand is that she needs special care. My aunt has polio and she limps and needs strong medication... She can’t defend herself when she’s around them.” And Trent insists Katherine didn’t want to go to London, but he helped persuade her to make the trip to see Janet and her baby, adding, “I had to contact the doctor to get the release for her to even be able to fly.” But court papers obtained by Entertainment Tonight suggest Trent has interfered with Katherine’s “business and personal affairs”, and screened her phone calls. “Mrs. Jackson has to hide in her closet to speak to her kids so she can speak freely,” the documents claim. “Trent bullies Mrs. Jackson into submission. “Mrs. Jackson wants to return from London, but is afraid to go home with Trent there. She fears he could physically harm her for terminating him. She fears he could emotionally manipulate her into hiring him back. She fears his access to her financial records and accounts could result in further financial abuse.” A hearing into the case has been scheduled for 1 March (17).

Jason Derulo seeking public apology over airline incident

Jason Derulo is still waiting for bosses at American Airlines to “make amends” publicly after an incident at a Florida airport earlier this month (Feb17). The Wiggle singer and his entourage were running late for a flight from Miami to Los Angeles and they decided one member of the group would stay behind and check all the luggage onto the next flight while they headed out. Derulos pal reportedly tried to check 19 bags, and called the singer on the plane, and told him the airline staff wanted to charge him $4,000 (GBP3,200) for the extra luggage - at which point Derulo, who claimed he has never had to pay for his bags due to his air miles, decided to “turn the plane around” and sort out the situation. As he and his group disembarked the plane, Derulo alleged the captain came out of the cockpit and started cursing at them, ordering them to get off the aircraft. Once off the plane, Derulo and his aides were met by 15 police officers, which the singer called “super embarrassing”. Jason has since resolved the situation with bosses at the company privately, but he is still seeking a public apology. “They’ve made amends personally, but haven’t made amends publicly,” he told People magazine at the Grammy Awards on Sunday (12Feb17). “I’m waiting on a statement that they said they would release. But we’ll see if that happens this week. I really hope so... I really hope it happens because I really would like to just be done with the situation.” People also obtained a police report filed by the Miami-Dade Police Department, in which an airline employee told officers that Derulo and his entourage “smelled of marijuana and were getting aggressive” as they checked in. The report suggested the singer and his friends refused to give their IDs to American Airlines staff when they disembarked the plane, and also refused initially to give them to the police. No charges were filed and the case was closed.

Breakout singer/songwriter Tucker Beathard is trailblazing his own path, premiering the new music video for his second “hot, smokin’, Southern rockin’, good old-fashioned tuneage” single “Momma And Jesus” exclusively on Noisey today. Defiantly distinguishing himself from the pack, the jaw-dropping video directed by Wes Edwards, takes fearless cues from the rebellious nature of his “bad boy anthem” (Taste Of Country), with Beathard joined by his bandmates and longtime buddies as they wreak havoc across Nashville, TN. While Beathard orchestrated and unflinchingly participated in various mischief ranging from paintball in women’s lingerie to riding naked on a pedal tavern down Broadway and launching himself over a ramp on a motorbike, the hired stunt man couldn’t even stand the risks and walked off the set mid-shoot.

Speaking at the 2017 Grammy Awards on Sunday night (12Feb17), Malik revealed that he had spent “six or seven hours” with Kanye, and the pair were “walking through his health and recovery.” “His memory is coming back which is super good,” he told website Popsugar. “And he’s just healing, spending time with his family.” Kanye, 39, spent nine days at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Medical Center, when he was admitted for a mental evaluation after reportedly suffering from sleep deprivation and dehydration. He was later released into the care of his personal physician and has been recuperating at home ever since. Malik also explained that Kanye, who is married to reality TV star Kim Kardashian, loves spending time with his children, daughter North, three, and one-year-old son Saint, who is having an especially positive effect on the musician. “Saint is getting big and he’s walking and playing with toys so that invigorates him,” he shared. As for working on new music, the Life of Pablo producer revealed that Kanye isn’t making work a priority at present. “He’s not working, not working, just going through processes,” Malik added.

Al Jarreau dies at 76

Al Jarreau, the jazz singer who crossed over to the pop music charts on a number of occasions during his long career, has died at the age of 76. Jarreau has just been hospitalised for what was called exhaustion and, on Thursday, had announced his retirement. At the time, doctors had advised him not to tour at all for the rest of the year. The announcement came via his website: Al Jarreau passed away today, February 12, 2017. He will be missed. A few days ago, I was asked to describe Al to someone who knew of his success, but did not know him as a person. I responded with this: His 2nd priority in life was music. There was no 3rd. His 1st priority, far ahead of the other, was healing or comforting anyone in need. Whether it was emotional pain, or physical discomfort, or any other cause of suffering, he needed to put our minds at ease and our hearts at rest. He needed to see a warm, affirming smile where there had not been one before. Song was just his tool for making that happen. A few things I think he would want mentioned right now: To Al’s wife, son, sister, brothers, and family: You allowed Al to share himself with the world. He was grateful that you gave him that gift. He knew it was difficult, and regretted that more than he could explain. Please know that your gift was to us, too, and that we are also grateful. To everyone who attended his concerts, and listened to his albums: He needed you, and you always were there for him, for more than 50 years. He was thankful for you every day, and did his best to show that to each of you. To his band, and to the many, many talented musicians, writers, composers, and arrangers who played and collaborated with Al over the years: You enabled, supported, and thrilled him. He treasured you, and considered you brilliant. He loved sharing the stage with you, and was honored that you shared it with him. To each promoter, presenter, and producer: Thank you for your faith in him. Your commitment to Al was both essential and endless, and he never took you for granted. To his agents, managers, crew, counselors, publicists, and journalists who supported his work, and also to all of the airline, hotel, venue, and other people who hosted him like royalty: He noticed every bit of the dedication and effort that you unselfishly provided, without limits. And, he appreciated you completely. To young people everywhere, especially the musicians he was grateful to meet at school workshops, musical competitions, residencies, and at concerts: From you, 24

Al asks a favor. Please find any artistic thing that you can do with passion, and do it. With art in your life, you will be a better family member, neighbor, friend, and citizen. Finally, to Al Jarreau: Thank you Al, from all of us. You completed your ministry in a beautiful and gracious way. Godspeed… you’ve earned it.

Evanescence’s Amy Lee debuts new track ‘Love Exists’

Evanescence’s Grammy Award winning singer/ songwriter Amy Lee released a new single, “Love Exists,” on February 10th as an interactive valentine, which is available now at: http://amyleevalentine.me. Fans were invited to create and share their own valentine featuring surreal pop art by Jennybird Alcantara to accompany the song. “Love Exists” is also available for download on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon Music Unlimited. Lee has a message for her fans about the creative process and inspiration behind the song: “When I was in Italy filming the video for “Speak To Me,” I fell in love with a song I heard on the radio there. L’amore Esiste by Francesca Michielin. It seemed to follow me everywhere, got under my skin and just wouldn’t leave. I couldn’t stop listening to it, over and over the whole way home. I started piecing together what the lyrics meant and wrote my own twist on them in English. I showed my idea to one of my dream producers, Guy Sigsworth, and somehow convinced him to come to New York and re-create the song with me. Dave Eggar contributed his lush string arrangement and we all just lived in this song for a week at Flux Studios on the lower east side.” “What an incredibly fulfilling experience it was to make this beautiful thing. And with such a talented, down-to-earth, and inspired team- with no rules or limitations beyond the ones we created. Guy pushed me in new ways and I learned a few things. It was a unique honor to work beside someone I admire so much on something that at the time had no plan, no album to go on, and made no sense other than how good it felt. It’s easy to get bogged down by the “point” sometimes, when what matters most in my opinion, in music-making, is following your heart. Finding a way to satisfy that deep need to express something that can’t be said with words alone.” “Love is anything but simple. And it manifests itself in countless forms. It can be inconvenient. Painful. Easier to ignore than to trust. But we are still connected, despite how alone we feel sometimes. Can we be brave enough to love, knowing it’s going to hurt? Can we drop our cynicism long enough to see beyond the frustrations, the discontentment, the fear of the unknown and the anger for all we can’t control? Love is all around. Even in the darkest places. And it is worth everything. Look out, look in. Love exists.”–Amy Lee In addition, Lee’s single “Speak To Me” will appear on the soundtrack for the forthcoming supernatural thriller, Voice From The Stone, due April 28th which features Emelia Clarke (Game of Thrones). Known for her soaring haunting vocals and sophisticated piano melodies, Rolling Stone describe Lee as “one of hard rock’s leading ladies” and Kerrang cites her as “one of the most significant and influential women in rock”. Needless to say, her upcoming effort is much anticipated. Amy Lee is currently in the studio with her band, Evanescence, working on new music expected later this year.

– “Ring On Every Finger,” LOCASH’s new sweet sentiment single that just begs to be danced to, will premiere all over CMT channels and platforms last month including CMT, CMT Music and CMT.com. Filmed in Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, the Reviver Records hot country duo, which includes Chris Lucas and Preston Brust, bring their contagious energy to the screen for their third single from their album THE FIGHTERS. “These guys are unstoppable - another big hit!” beamed Leslie Fram, CMT Senior VP of Music Strategy. for Album of the Year at the awards ceremony at Los Angeles’ Staples Center on Sunday night (12Feb17), and hit headlines when she dedicated the prize to Beyonce. However, viewers also noticed another news-making moment, when Adele referenced “husband” Simon - the father of her four-year-old son Angelo. “My husband, my son, you’re the only reason I do it,” she said, after a tearful speech. Speaking to reporters backstage after her victorious evening, Adele changed her tune and referred to Simon as her “partner”, according to People.com. Adele first sparked rumours she and Simon had wed in secret last December (16) when she was seen wearing a gold band on her ring finger, following speculation the couple were set to tie the knot over the Christmas period. The couple reportedly got engaged in October and a source told The Mirror newspaper they would wed over Christmas so Simon’s daughter from his first marriage could be a guest. “The plan is to marry in LA. The wedding will be in one of the school holidays so Simon’s daughter can attend,” the source said. “It’s looking like it will be Christmas, but they want to keep details under wraps. “Adele is not even wearing her engagement ring. They’re a private couple and only want their nearest and dearest there.” The couple’s son was believed to have been front and centre at the nuptials. Speaking previously about what attracted her to Simon, who she has dated since 2011, Adele told Vanity Fair magazine: “I have no desire to be with anyone in show business because we all have egos. He’s not threatened by any stage of my life that I’m going for, and that’s an amazing thing. It’s the most serious relationship I’ve ever been in.”

and the late icon’s family are “appalled” the call was made public. “George’s family and friends are extremely upset and truly appalled that such a personal, painful and clearly confidential recording has been leaked,” a statement reads. “On their behalf we will be ensuring that a full investigation takes place to establish how this material was made available and we will expect the culprit(s) to be dealt with appropriately.” “We firmly believe that anyone contacting the emergency authorities in situations such as this should be entitled to expect that recordings will not be released to the media and it is deeply distressing to the family that this transcript, and audio recording, has been made public,” it continues. Fawaz, who had been in a relationship with George for four years, was quizzed by Thames Valley Police last month (Jan17) as they attempted to put together the final hours of the former Wham! frontman’s life. He was reportedly questioned regarding fears George died from a drug overdose. Fawaz previously told reporters he slept in his car on the night of George’s death - but said police “know everything”. Meanwhile, the singer’s funeral has been delayed as head coroner Darren Salter is reportedly still awaiting the results of toxicology tests which are needed to determine the cause of the singer’s death. The toxicology tests were ordered after the initial postmortem examination proved “inconclusive”, to see if drugs played any part in Michael’s death. Thames Valley police told The Mail On Sunday the test results are expected to be revealed “imminently”. Initial unverified reports alleged that George died of congestive heart failure.

Easton Corbin is back with a solid fast rising entry. “A Girl Like You” (Mercury Nashville) is quite stellar. Mo Pitney “Everywhere” (Curb) is one of his best and this one appears to have some solid legs to it. The pairing of Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood is being heralded as a real solid winning combination. “The Fighter” (Hit Red/Capitol Nashville) is off and running faster than a speeding bullet and this one has #1 written all over it. Blake Shelton continues to be one of the very best at the format. Having interviewed him in the early days at CRS, his track “Every Time I Hear That Song” (WB/WEA) continues to highlight just how far he’s come. The new season of The Voice (NBC) is also upon us so keep that in mind as well. There’s so much teaming up at Country these days you’d think we were looking at the Top40 format. Case in point is the teaming of Cole Swindell with Dierks Bentley. Together they make beautiful music in “Flatliner” (WB/ WEA) & from what our brilliant panel of music and program directors tell us, this one is the “one to watch”. Lady Antebellum are back at it and make no mistake about that. “You Look Good” (Capitol Nashville) is oh so good so you may want to pump up the spins on this gem and beat the competition. Rascal Flatts have a great new single at the format. Everybody seems to be raving out the new “Yours If You Want It” (Big Machine/Universal) track and I must admit, this is another solid record from the Flatts. Going back to that “pairing thing”, how about the teaming of Florida Georgia Line and the Backstreet Boys. Yes I said it and it must be true. Together they make all the women get crazy with a mix of the anthem they have entitled God, Your Mama, And Me” (Big Machine/Universal). By the look at the numbers for this one, it might be time to power this one out if you are not already slamming it. Richard Lynch has joined forces with Ronnie McDowell for a single that is getting plenty of attention. “Love Tattoo” (Twang Thang Country/MTS) is the gem I’m talking about and this one is pretty solid. Ron Sowell is getting much love for the rising and brilliant single “Dream On” (Mountain Soul) so pass that along to the folks. Kim McAbee is back and nobody does it better. Her new “Journey On” (Soigne) is the talk of Country radio so get that on your add list right away. The fabulous Richard Thomas Band is rocking the Country charts big time with “My Mother’s Love”. I must admit that I actually met Richard during one of my shows at Legends Corner so to see him now on the Country charts is quite a thrill indeed. Watch for some big weeks ahead for the Richard Thomas Band and this great new single. Keith Walker is getting plenty of action for his new single “Me Too” and that’s always a good thing. CJ Solar also has a real winner with the powerful and chart building “Just Another Day In The Country” (Sea Gayle). Rick Monroe is back at radio just in time for CRS. His new “This Side Of You” (MRG) Is one of his best to date and we wish him the very best with this one to be sure. Lauren Alaina has been working as hard as she can as her “Road Less Traveled” (19 Recordings/ Mercury Nashville) becomes an anthem at Country. Recording artist Tucker Beathard continues to shine with “Momma And Jesus” (Dot). We have a good many NMA Nominees in the independent arena that are kicking butt. Nobody continues to do better than Chuck Murphy thanks to his brilliant and powerful “Peace Be With You” (One West Music). NMA nominee Joey Canyon has also had a brilliant run with his new “I Can’t Stop Loving You Again” (Glo Dot). Make sure to keep your votes going strong for both Joey Canyon, Chuck Murphy and all of your favorite Country artists on the NMW website at newmusicweekly.com.

C arrie Underwood is no stranger to the word “reality.” After all, as the winner of the 2005 season of “American Idol,” she won the hearts of millions of viewers across the world. Now, the singer has entered into a promotion that is sure to please her fan following.

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

Country Date To Remember: February 11, 1962 Somewhere, around Fenton, Mo, there are some students who can say that they had one of music’s sexiest performers as a teacher. Sheryl Crow - long before she hit it big in 1993 with “All I Wanna Do,” was actually a music teacher at Kellison Elementary School. Though her teaching days in school are long over, Crow - who turns an amazing 50 years old today has educated many of her fans about some of Country Music’s greatest performers, such as Loretta, Hank, and Johnny Cash. Happy Birthday to one of Rock’s top women! 32

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