.....Where Records Get Started

It’s that time once again for the “meeting of the minds” at CRS (Country Radio Seminar) in musical Nashville, Tennessee. Also set during the perfect time of year, this “grand event” provides an opportunity to meet with radio stations, artists, labels and industry professionals to set plans for the future. For many of us, it’s a time and place to re-connect with old friends and make some new ones as well. Many artists and bands are set for performances and to hit the interview trail and radio programmers are here to check out the latest technology and ideas and to help get their bearings on what’s ahead for them in 2013. It’s all here in one place during the annual Country Radio Seminar. For us at New Music Weekly, it’s our time to “get busy”. Our schedule is jam packed with meetings and interviews and if we don’t get to all of you at this moment please be assured that we’ll leave no stone unturned to get to each and every one of you at some point during the week. We too have also made countless friends in the music industry and it’s our time to connect those telephone calls from the past to real faces. From what we’ve seen and heard so far, this is all “set and ready” as the only place to be. For those of you that are reading this publication for the first time, welcome to our “new music revolution”. It’s been 14+ years that we have been providing weekly charts in multi-formats from Country, Top40, AC to College radio. Our STS tracing is second to none and provides valuable information on how records are faring all across the USA. In our world all radio stations are “treated as equals” regardless of market size. We also provide a solid mix of major and independent artists and bands on our charts as you can see by looking through this magazine. Many of our music and program directors actually “listen” to new music and if it fits what they are doing, you will most likely see it added into rotation. You could say that many of our programmers do it the “old fashion” way. Our annual New Music Awards provides the opportunity to acknowledge artists and bands the achieved the highest chart success during each year. We also get to signal out radio stations, programmers, record labels and radio professionals for all of their hard work. Our subscribers, industry and even the fans were allowed to involve themselves by their votes on our website for both the nomination and final outcome process. NMW recently made our announcement regarding our “winners”, most of which will appear in this issue. With any luck you may even see some of our new NMA winners flashing their hardware around CRS. Each quarter we provide a Future Hits compilation that goes out to “all of radio”. We have been doing this since the start of our company and it’s helped hundreds of new artists and even established ones get their music out to those that can make a difference. All of the artists on Future Hits get special coverage and attention from us, and all of the songs also get distributed digitally through Airplay Access. Once we get back from this event, we will be getting set for our next compilation, so make sure you get in touch with us and be a part of this special opportunity. As you can gather, New Music Weekly provides many “tools of the trade” to help new and established recording artists. Our charts reflect what is really going on in radio today by including “all” artists in the process. Being one of the few “printed magazines” of a music publication also provides a visual opportunity to all artists on our charts. We have now launched a digital version that allows us to get this publication to an entire new audience. All of us at New Music Weekly applaud the CRS for this annual opportunity as not only a launching pad for new Country artists but many from all formats in today’s music.

Kelly Parkes was born and raised in Lancaster County Pennsylvania. She loved to perform in front of anyone who would listen, whether it was for the neighborhood, or while standing in line at the grocery store. She would soon find herself singing in dorms for her sorority and shows held on campus, in fact when she left college she just “kept on singing”. For her 19th birthday, she spent the day in a recording studio cutting all her favorite cover songs, and then realized she wanted to pursue it further. She worked tirelessly and finally made contact with Nashville songwriter Liz Rose, who cowrote many of the Taylor Swift hits. After meeting with her in Nashville, Parkes realized she needed to get to Nashville to pursue a new career. Short of her 20th birthday, Parkes moved to Nashville to begin developing a recording career “full time”. She researched online to find Kim Copeland Productions which produced an “artist pitch package” including original songs, photos and a bio to attract record labels. This led her to Carol Perdew at Springbarrel Publishing who had one of the songs on Parkes “artist pitch package”. Parkes would soon meet music industry veteran Mike Borchetta, and her recording career began to “take off”. Through an extensive song search, her first single “Nothing” proved to be a winner by impacting the New Music Weekly charts. Borchetta and his team went to work sending Parkes out on radio tours. Her first national appearance was performing the National Anthem for Nascar on the Speed Channel in front of millions. Parkes went on to release the singles “Girl With A Fishing Rod” (co-written by Hillary Scott) and “Don’t Make Me”, which took the #1 spot on the New Music Weekly charts. A debut video soon followed for her single “All Cried Out”, which found a home at Music Choice On Demand. She just released a new single “As Good As Me” and has recently been awarded the 2013 Country Breakthrough Artist of the Year during the New Music Awards. “Thank you Radio, New Music Weekly and all my fans for this wonderful award. I have been totally blessed with wonderful people around me and thankful to you all for believing in me. Also, thank you to my promoters and a very special thank you to my main promoter, Mike Borchetta, who in the two and a half years of working together has inspired me to never stop. Thank You” - Kelly Parkes 3

One of my favorite bands as of late has been the Neon Trees. This is a great “live” band that is building a huge following and their latest single “Lessons In Love” (Island/UMG) should help to add to their already impressive numbers. One Direction is taking the label “boy band” to another level. Their latest single entitled “Kiss You” (Syco/Columbia) has all of the girls going wild and for good reason. Simon Cowell has to be very proud of his latest project. Recording artist Lupe Fiasco has teamed up with Guy Sebastian for a very stellar track. “Battle Scars” (Atlantic/WEA) is the one that is fast becoming a favorite among our music and program directors at the Top40 format. Watch for some big weeks ahead as this powerful song continues to build. Nelly is back at the format and that’s always good news. His latest “Hey Porsche” (Republic) is one of his best to date but does he still have the magic to take this single “all the way“? Calvin Harris, the super DJ turned songwriter/ producer seems to be somebody that everyone wants to work with. He has now paired up with Florence Welch and the end result is the strong “Sweet Nothing” (Columbia/Sony). Following in that same “team thang”, Icona Pop has joined forces with Charli XCX for the big bad single “I Love It” (Big Beat/Atlantic). Keep playing that one loud and you will no doubt wake up all your neighbors. Another of my band favorites, Paramore, is pulling in some rather impressive add and spin numbers for their track “Now” (Fueled By Ramen). We’ll keep you posted. Justin Timberlake and his new best friend Jay Z are one unlikely duo. Together they make beautiful music and fashion as they take the single “Suit & Tie” (RCA/RLG) out for a spin. The hottest act on the planet according to this year’s Grammy Awards in the band Fun. Their latest offering in “Carry On” (Fueled By Ramen) will no doubt take them to even greater heights. Bruno Mars is as hot as any artist at the format. He continues his major “winning ways” with “When I Was Your Man” (Atlantic/WEA). This track is just a guy and his piano and that seems to be all that you need when you are a stellar vocalist. Afrojack has paired up with Chris Brown and they seem to be just fine with it. The single entitled “As Your Friend” (Wall) showcases that Chris can be on his best behavior as long as his girlfriend is not around. And speaking of that, Rihanna is pulling in much love for her latest single. “Stay” (DefJam/IDJMG) must be her latest request to Chris Brown but if you ask me, she’s just asking for it. Maroon 5 keep things rolling strong into 2013. Adam Levine could not be any hotter and that makes the latest single “Daylight” (Octone/A&M) a very appealing track to all of us that follow the Top40 format. My good pal Michael Damian is getting a good run with his latest single. “Rock My Heart” (Weir Brothers) is the one that many of our music and program directors are moving into “heavy” this week. Kesha continues to make magic at Top40 radio and why not. With Lady Ga Ga taking a break, Kesha gets all of her base as the single “C’mon” (RCA) takes flight. We’re also happy to see that Owl City is keeping a solid pace. Their new track “Shooting Star” (Universal/UMG) is just another reason to turn on your radio. Will I Am is having a good solid run with his new best friend Britney Spears. Together they make beautiful music with “Scream & Shout” (Interscope). Ludacris has teamed up with his good friend Usher. Together the two are getting the job done as they join super mixer/producer David Guetta for “Rest Of My Life” (IDJMG). Train has another winner in “Mermaid” (Columbia/Sony). NMA “winner” Marsha Jewell continues strong with “Ragged Angel” (Jewell Lane). Another NMA winner Tommy Roe and Melissa Hooker continue to move up with “It’s For You I’m Me” (Airebelle Records). Matt Backer & Julian Lennon are also New Music Award “winners” for their #1 Hit single “All That You’ve Wanted” (Right Records). As of this writing I’m here at the CRS in Nashville Tennessee. It’s great to be with all of my radio friends and artists. Now back to the party!

Bruno Mars has be one of the brightest music stars to come around in a long while. The format really loves him and they are falling all over his new “When I Was Your Man” (Atlantic/WEA). That should be of no surprise as this guy is such a major talent and I believe he’s just getting started. I had the pleasure of catching Ed Sheeran over at The Grove a few days before the Grammy Awards. I could not believe the crowd that showed up for this kid and the girls went wild. They also made a big fuss over his new single “Lego House” (Asylum/WB) that is just getting started at radio. His “A-Team” debut single put him on the map “big time” and now that he has a toured lined up to open Taylor Swift, he’s the only one that can mess this up. Keep up the good work Ed. One of my Facebook friends is Alicia Keys. She’s so good about keeping her fans and friends updated. I was able to follow her trail at the Super Bowl all the way to her Grammy performance with Maroon 5. “Girl On Fire” (RCA/RLG) is a most appropriate title for where she is in her life. Josh Groban has to be one of the nicest guys at the format proving that good guys can finish first from time to time. “Brave” (Reprise/WEA) is his latest offering and it’s a great single for your programming consideration. Hunter Hayes is making his way over to the AC format and why not. His “Wanted” (WB/WEA) single fits AC radio like a glove, and we’ll see how that all plays out in the coming weeks. There is a major buzz going for Emeli Sande and for good reason. The debut single entitled “Next To Me” (Capitol) is already crossing formats and in a very big way. You have to love how Justin Timberlake made his music re-birth during this year’s Grammy Awards. Teaming up with Jay Z was a very brilliant move and so is the single “Suit & Tie” (RCA/RLG). Lisa Loeb (remember her?) is back at radio and it’s about time. She’s taking the song “No Fairy Tale” (429) out for a ride and “so far so good”. The single is getting “rave reviews” from many of our music and program directors which is a sign that she’s on the right track for a solid return to AC radio. The fabulous Goo Goo Dolls are back and make no mistake about it. “Rebel Beat” (WB/WEA) is their latest and it showcases just why we love these guys. Rihanna is getting some real “love” from the AC format. Her “Diamonds” (IDJMG) she wears quite well and why she’s back with Chris Brown is forever a mystery. Can’t she find a real date? It’s so great to see the name Boz Scaggs back on the radio charts. That’s what is starting to happen as his new “Mixed Up, Shook Up Girl” (429) gets the green light from many of our reporting stations. Newcomer Keith Harkin is getting raves for the single “Don’t Forget About Me” (Verve). We’ll see how that all plays out in the coming weeks. The entire world is loving Fun and for good reason. They are truly the hardest working band out there as the new “Carry On” (Fueled By Ramen) takes flight. Michael Damian is back at radio and make no mistake about that my good friends. Little brother is making his move with “Rock My Heart” (Weir Brothers) and if you don’t believe me, just ask Mom. We’ve been seeing major adds and spins for Beyond The Sun. They are getting the “thumbs up” from everybody for their brilliant “My Kind Of Crazy” (OM20). Maroon 5 is still getting quite a lot of love at the format. Their current “Daylight” (Octone/A&M) has become a real favorite and Adam Levine is the real “star of the show”. Recording artist Bill Songy has a good thing going at radio, and make no mistake about that. His debut single “Those Days Are Gone” (Franzia) has been a “winner” from the first week as it makes its way to the “top of our charts”. Young Emil has had a great run with “Night Train” (Caper). Del Robbins continues to build believers with his stellar “Where Did The Love Go” (Fame & Fortune). New Music Award “winner” Marsha Jewell continues to shine with “Ragged Angel” (Jewell Lane). Tommy Roe picked up a well-deserved NMA Award as his duet with Melissa Hooker “It’s For You I’m Me” (Airebelle Records) moves ahead. Matt Backer and Julian Lennon can also add “winners” to their list of credits thanks to “All That You’ve Wanted” (Right Records). Congratulations to all of our New Music Award “winners”. Let’s get this CRS Party started!

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 Swift’s Trouble

‘100 percent’ About Styles Taylor Swift’s single I Knew You Were Trouble is reportedly an ode to her ex-boyfriend Harry Styles. The former couple dated on and off last year. They are believed to have called it quits after the One Direction singer was pictured kissing a model in Australia. Immediately after they split the first time, 23-year-old Taylor was back in the studio recording one of her notorious break-up songs. Radar Online reports her recent chart topper is about Harry’s cheating ways. ‘Taylor was crushed over Harry the first time they dated, and like she always does, she penned a song about him to deal with her broken heart,’ a source told the website. ‘I Knew You Were Trouble is one hundred per cent about Harry,’ the insider said. ‘She knew he was young and popular with the ladies and wasn’t ready for a serious relationship, but somehow hoped she could make it work.’ The pair gave it another shot but failed to work out their issues, calling it quits for good over the New Year. The lyrics on the track could hint at details behind the breakdown of the relationship. ‘Cause I knew you were trouble when you walked in/So shame on me now/ Flew me to places I’d never been/So you put me down/Oh. When your saddest fear comes creeping in/That you never loved me or her or anyone or anything,’ she sings. Harry is believed to know the song is about him. The insider said the teenage star has already moved on. ‘[He] doesn’t really care. He’s just happy to be single again,’ the source said. Taylor has yet to confirm who the track is about.

Khloé Kardashian ‘fired from X Factor’

Khloé Kardashian has reportedly been fired from The X Factor US. The reality television star signed on to cohost Simon Cowell’s television singing competition last year with TV veteran Mario Lopez. But Khloé is said to have been booted by producers after only one season on the air. ‘They are asking Mario Lopez to come back, but not Khloé,’ a source told the New York Post. Khloé was confirmed as Mario’s co-host last October following weeks of speculation. The 28-year-old did not have any prior television hosting experience and had her share of stumbles during the gig. Khloé won headlines during her X Factor debut when she dressed in a sheer blouse that exposed the star’s breasts under the harsh lighting of the Los Angeles sound stage. She later made viewers squirm when she sat on Simon’s lap, asking him if he felt ‘excited’ about the evening’s performances. X Factor executives have declined to comment on reports of her exit. Khloé previously spoke of her nerves before her new gig got underway. She offered what now appears to be a NMW - FEBRUARY 22, 2013

premonition when speaking to American radio show host Ryan Seacrest about the job last October. “I’’ve never hosted before,” she said. “I mean, what if I get kicked off the show because I say something so bad? That is what I’’m nervous about, but listen, I can’’t be anyone else but myself. I just have to control the language a little bit.” Khloé is not the first on-air talent to exit the programme after the last season. X Factor judges Britney Spears and L.A. Reid announced last year they would not be returning. The new judging panel has yet to be announced.

Fergie: I’m pregnant!

Fergie is pregnant with her first child. The Black Eyed Peas singer, real name Stacy Ferguson, is expecting a baby with husband Josh Duhamel. The 37-year-old star made the announcement via Twitter on Monday. “Josh & Me & BABY makes three,” she wrote, adding the hashtag, ‘#MyLovelyBabyBump’. She also shared childhood pictures of herself and of her husband. Josh shared the message on his Twitter and Facebook accounts. Fergie and Josh married in January 2009 after five years of dating. Rumours have been circulating for weeks the couple is expecting. Josh tried his best to diffuse the reports on the red carpet for the premiere of his new movie, Safe Haven, on February 5. Asked by an E! News reporter if he was soon to be a dad, the actor gave a straight, ‘No’. But the star did confess he was looking forward to the prospect of being a parent. “You said it will be your greatest career achievement, so we’re waiting,” said E! News host Jason Kennedy. “Greatest life achievement,” Josh corrected. Fergie also attended the event but declined to confirm the rumours. It’s unclear how far along Fergie is in her pregnancy but the singer has been wearing noticeably oversized clothes for several weeks. She took a swing at the rumours last September during an appearance on America’s Rachael Ray Show. ‘[People ask if I’m pregnant] every time I fluctuate a few pounds. Like right now, I’m a couple pounds up,” she said, explaining, “Sometimes I go a couple pounds down and I wear the clothes that are more fitted, but people kind of look at me because they’re expecting [that] it’s that time.’ The singer added she was ‘hoping’ for children. ‘That will be coming up, but it’s not yet,’ she said.

Lil Wayne Slams NBA

Lil Wayne has slammed the National Basketball Association for banning him from all games. The rapper took the stage for a concert in Houston, Texas on Sunday night. He let the insults fly when he grabbed the mic for a show during the association’s highly anticipated All-Star Weekend. “The NBA banned me from all NBA events - because the Miami Heat told them to ban me,’ he told the crowd.

Vol. 15 Issue 2

Wayne was barred from attending games for the team in his adopted hometown last week after he supported the Los Angeles Lakers during a match. There were also reports of the rapper making a ‘gun gesture’ at another fan, according to TMZ. Wayne claims the NBA is backing executives at the Heat and is now blacklisting him. The hip-hop star isn’t taking kindly to the ban. ‘When I say f**k, you say NBA! When I say f**k, you say Miami Heat!” he continued on stage. Wayne went on to insult the club’s players. “F**k LeBron. F**k She Wade. F**k Chris Bosh. F**k all y’all,’ he said, adding, “I f**ked Chris Bosh wife.” Chris Bosh has yet to publicly respond to the remarks. Wayne, real name Dwayne Carter, Jr., is no stranger to controversy. Last week, the 30-year-old star won headlines for controversial lyrics in a newly released remixed version of rapper Future’s single Karate Chop. The song mentioned civil rights figure Emmett Till, a black teenager famously murdered for whistling at a white woman in 1955. Wayne’s rhyme: ‘beat the p**sy up like Emmett Till’, sparked outrage from the Till family and prompted Sony Music executives to pull the track.

Mindy McCready’s X Not Shocked By ‘Suicide’

Mindy McCready’s ex-boyfriend says her apparent suicide “didn’t come as a major shock”. The 37-year-old country singer was found dead on the porch of her Arkansas home yesterday. Police responded to reports of gunshots at the property and it is thought Mindy killed her dog before taking her own life. Her former partner Billy McKnight appeared on the Today show this morning to discuss the events. He and Mindy have six-yearold son Zander together and Billy admits feeling no surprise about the news. “As sad as it is, it didn’t come as a major shock,” he said. “She’s just been battling demons for so long. “I was around her when she attempted suicide twice, so I knew it was in her.” Mindy had a wellpublicised battle with addiction and is known to have attempted to take her own life on several occasions in the past. She and Billy had a troubled relationship and he was arrested for her attempted murder after assaulting her in 2005. She had been experiencing a fraught time of late, following the death of her fiancé David Wilson in January. His passing is still being investigated by police, although it is thought he also killed himself on the same porch where Mindy’s body was found. The country singer and David have ten-month-old Zayne together and following David’s death both children were removed from Mindy’s custody and placed in foster care. The star was ordered to spend time in rehab to get help for mental health and alcohol issues after admitting turning to drink to help

her deal with her grief. “The demons that she hasn’t beaten were there,” Billy said. “I feel for her mother and her family and especially my son. He needs to come home.” Billy was asked if he felt Mindy was allowed to leave the treatment facility early and simply said he knew she was often able to talk people round to her way of thinking. He added he is working to get Zander back but at the moment does not know what will happen to Zayne. A host of stars have paid tribute to the late star on Twitter, with fellow country musicians LeAnn Rimes and Carrie Underwood among those to pay their respects. “My heart goes out to Mindy McCready’s family. I knew her well. It’s a horribly tragedy. May peace be with her son’s (sic),” LeAnn wrote. Carrie told her followers: “I grew up listening to Mindy McCready... so sad for her family tonight. Many prayers are going out to them...”

Michael Jackson’s Son Dreams Of Directing

Michael Jackson’s eldest son has been seeking advice from big stars on how to succeed in Hollywood. Prince Michael I appeared alongside the cast of new movie Oz the Great and Powerful for an interview with Entertainment Tonight. During the segment, which airs in the US on Tuesday evening, Prince was also given tips on how to interview. The expert tuition inspired him to pose questions for James Franco and his co-star Zach Braff. Prince revealed he dreams of becoming a director, as well as an actor, producer and screenwriter. Eager to learn all he can about his chosen profession, the 16-year-old quizzed actorand-filmmaker James on how to pursue his ambitions. “I always tell people, ‘Just go out and try and stop waiting around or dreaming it’s going to happen. Just go and start doing some things on your own,’” James replied. During his chat with Entertainment Tonight, Prince revealed he admires Oprah Winfrey. The confident teenager explained he had learnt a lot from watching the legendary talk show host’s casual interviewing technique. Prince also says his younger sister Paris and brother Prince Michael II, known as Blanket, are a source of inspiration. Prince isn’t the only one of late superstar Michael’s children to show an interest in show business. Last year, it was reported that 14-year-old Paris was eager to pursue a career as an actress. While she refused to name the project she is working on, Paris revealed it is not a reality TV show. “[My acting career is going] great,” Paris said. “No it’s not reality television. I like to keep some parts of our life private, you know?”

Alicia Keys: Singing live is a thrill

USO tour veteran Kellie Pickler is no stranger to supporting our men and women in uniform--it’s something she’s been doing since she set out on her first USO tour in 2007. Along the way she’s lifted the spirits of more than 30,000 servicemen and women stationed in eight countries. So, it’s no surprise that the country music singer/songwriter wanted to do something special for our female soldiers spending Valentine’s Day in Afghanistan and Kuwait.

at US President Barack Obama’s second inauguration ball. Alicia improvised on a number of sections of the song, adding in lines such as ‘Obama’s on fire!’ and ‘Everyone knows Michelle is his girl/Together they run the world’. The 32-year-old star embraces singing live at every available opportunity. “That’s my style and that’s what I love,” she explained in an interview with British newspaper The Telegraph. “Even when I’m singing on a record there’s a lot of times when I’ll fight for a bit of imperfection. I might not have quite hit the note to the perfect pitch but there was a soul in there and feeling that, to me, delivers the emotion of that moment. For me, doing a show, the excitement of singing live, and the possibility that you’re not gonna be perfect ‘ that’s the thrill of it.” Alicia is now regarded as one of music’s finest artists. However, the star didn’t always feel so comfortable and confident in her abilities. “When I first started getting into the business, a young woman in a music game that was mostly men, I did feel inadequate. How much could I possibly know? It was an experience that was so new and wildly different, it was frightening,” she mused. “I had a vision for myself and felt I wasn’t allowed to express it, because people always want to tell you, ‘Do it like this, don’t do that, you should do this, you can’t do that’. So I did feel like I had to control it. I had to claim my space. It was about demanding respect, saying ‘Here’s what I want’, and pushing people as opposed to being pushed around. I found that if you acted like you knew what you were doing, people would believe you knew what you were doing.” Alicia wowed crowds at the half-time show for the NBA All-Star game in Houston, Texas on Sunday. The raven-haired star showed off her enviably toned figure in a stomachbaring crop top and leather trousers as she performed at the packed-out Toyota Center. A host of stars sat courtside to take in the action, including Beyoncé Knowles and Jay-Z, Drake and P. Diddy.

David Bowie To Release ‘The Stars Are Out Tonight’

David Bowie has released a cryptic message suggesting his next single will be a song titled ‘The Stars (Are Out Tonight)’ and that it will be released in a few weeks on February 26. At the official Bowie Facebook page an image of a Bowie-like mask with the words ‘The Stars (Are Out Tonight) David Bowie’ was uploaded at midnight last night and the date ‘02:26:13’ posted above it. ‘The Stars (Are Out Tonight’ will be track three on Bowie’s upcoming album ‘The Next Day’, due in March. On January 8, 2013 Bowie surprised fans when he suddenly released the song ‘Where Are They Now’. There was no forewarning of any new Bowie material. The recording sessions (produced by Tony Visconti) were kept under complete secrecy. Bowie chose his birthday to release his first new music in over a decade. ‘The Next Day’ will be released in Australia on March 8, the USA on March 12 and the rest of the world on March 11.

Kris Kristofferson Feeling Mortal

Country and Western legend Kris Kristofferson has further cemented his undisputable status with a recent acoustic concert at the Royal Festival Hall, and now with a new album (rumoured to be his last, but who can tell?). ‘Feeling Mortal’ is without doubt the most personal and intimate work the 76-year old Texan has released to this date. To keep in line with the album’s title, the result is a moody and rather sombre affair - with only the most minimal of instrumental accompaniment, and Kristofferson’s trademark coarse baritone voice at the forefront. Mind you, the famous outlaw mentality still cuts through it like a bullwhip. Recorded over just several days, but written over several years, the ten songs were produced by another legend, namely the almighty Don Was (a man who’s worked with pretty much every iconic band and artist under the firmament!). Both sleeve design and inside sleeve resemble prints or

Top country music artists Darius Rucker and Randy Houser have both started the new year off with successful music releases, but they are also being recognized for their volunteer work with Musicians On Call (MOC), a non-profit organization that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities. NBC’s Lester Holt recently traveled to Nashville, Tenn. to join Rucker and Houser as they performed and visited with patients at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt through the MOC Nashville branch.

‘Wanted’ posters typical of the Old West, the bleed of its edges seemingly torched by flames. This much sums up the contents of the songs: personal accounts and reflections of someone who’s been around the block many a times, had a brush or two with the law (not to mention other demons), but always emerged stirred but not shaken and stayed ahead to sing the tale. Opener ‘Feeling Mortal’ offers a taste of what’s in store when Kristofferson announces “Wide awake and feeling mortal / at this moment in time…” even before the first chords of his guitar set in. Despite admitting that he’s broken many rules and promises, and that sooner or later he’ll be ‘leaving’, he’ll come out a winner either way. Now that’s the spirit! The arrangement is sparser then sparse, instead, it’s the words that are the driving force of the song. Although mortality is also the theme of second track ‘Mama Stewart’, this number about an old and blind lady on her deathbed reflects some optimism due to its slightly more harmonious arrangement. Because of her, our antihero gets ‘to see’ things he’d grown blind to in his past. ‘Bread For The Body’ is a more full-bodied and upbeat affair, with the addition of Sara Watkin’s strings and some proper country-style guitar play. The message of its chorus “Life is a song for the dying to sing, it’s gotta have feeling to mean anything / The time that we travel from cradle to grave was meant to be spent and not meant to be saved…” is one we should perhaps all embrace. The classic country- and western arrangement of ‘Just Suppose’ is on a par with the former number. Kristofferson’s sense for irony becomes particularly evident on the track ‘Castaway’, when he muses “One day as I was sailing on the Caribbean Sea I spied a little fishing vessel drifting aimlessly / Her sails were torn and tattered… I told myself that little boat sure looks a lot like me”. Never one to shy away from a self-reflecting sendup, the choice of musical arrangement somewhat contrasts the words – not exactly shanty but more campfire allure. The wonderfully titled ‘Stairway To The Bottom’ is very much in the vein of fellow crooner Leonard Cohen, in fact, Kristofferson seems a fan in any case, seeing how he would like the first three lines of Cohen’s ‘Bird on the Wire’ on his tombstone when his time has come. Sure enough here’s an artist who confronts himself with mortality! With closing track ‘Rambling Jack’ we another fine ditty, about the highs and lows of good times, bad times and above all, wasted times. The spirit of Kristofferson’s movie character Martin ‘Rubber Duck’ Penwald in Peckinpah’s 1978 action flick ‘Convoy’ shines through. However, the most

poignant song in terms of summing up Kristofferson’s stance on life, is the grim reaper challenging ‘Don’t Tell Me What To Do’: “So the highway is where I believe I belong / Losing myself in the soul of a song / And the fight for the right to be righteously wrong / It’s a story that’s sad but true”. Could well have been a duet with fellow outlaw Willie Nelson, or the late Johnny Cash. ‘Feeling Mortal’ is a hauntingly beautiful album by a truly gifted artist, supported by Mark Goldenberg and Greg Leisz on guitars and pedal steel, Sean Hurley on bass, Matt Rollings on keys, Aaron Sterling on drums, and Sara Watkins on violin and backing vox.

Justin Bieber

‘blows reunion w/Selena’

Justin Bieber has reportedly blown any chance of reconciling with Selena Gomez. The stars have been on-andoff for the last few months, initially splitting after it was claimed Justin had been flirting with models backstage at the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Last week, they were further rocked when a report alleged he had been hooking up with Rihanna. Although both Justin and the Barbados-born singer denied the claims, Selena apparently realised she could never fully trust Justin again. The Canadian heartthrob has hit the headlines a lot recently, when he was pictured smoking what appeared to be marijuana and driving his car too fast. Selena was apparently fearful he was going off the rails so wants to help. “She’s been really worried about Justin and his out of control actions - even his manager, Scooter [Braun] asked Selena to step in and talk to him - so she’s been trying to be supportive in the past few weeks and they’ve been seen together a fair bit,” a source told Look magazine. “I think Justin was hoping there would be room for a reconciliation, but there claims seem to have blown any chance of that.” Although both Rihanna and Justin have laughed off the claims, they apparently got Selena thinking. “This situation must have made Selena feel she can’t trust him,” the source added. “The rest of the world might think it’s ludicrous that Rihanna would’ve hooked up with Justin, but if Selena can’t be sure, how can she get back with him?”

MUSIC BIZ

As Multi-platinum selling Country music superstar Tracy Lawrence gears up for a national radio campaign strategy for his current single “Stop, Drop And Roll,” Lawrence Music Group (LMG) announced today a partnership with Tenacity to provide support services including national radio promotion for the LMG label. The Tenacity team led by music industry veteran Mike Kraski includes SVP, Tim McFadden; David Shaw, Gary Greenberg, and Jeff Davis who will provide strategic national radio campaign services for Lawrence. to sing her man’s praises and she believes that Liam is more than content to receive the compliments. “I’’m the only fiancée that pimps her fiancé out,” Miley laughed to ET Online. “[I talk] about how hot he is. All these women are reading about sex in Cosmo, and then it’’s like Liam naked in the pool. So he loves it, I’’m sure.” Miley partied it up in New York City earlier this week to celebrate the issue’s release. The cover image is daring, as her breasts are sensuously exposed. When asked whether it was her idea to pose in that manner, Miley had a good giggle. “I guess it’’s always all my fault,’ she joked.

Underwood Wears Oxygen Mask In Concert

Carrie Underwood had to use an oxygen mask to get through her concert on Thursday night. The 29-year-old songstress was performing in Broomfield, Colorado on Valentine’s Day. The altitude had her feeling winded and she took to Instagram to share a snap of herself with a surprising new accessory to help her breathe through the show. ‘In high altitudes, they put oxygen in my dressing room under the stage! This is me before the encore,” she wrote. Carrie got through her set list and the encore without a problem. She later took to Twitter to thank fans for caring enough about her music to see her. ‘Thanks, Colorado, for the wonderful energy over the last two shows! I can always tell when I’m in a great place full of great people,’ she penned. Carrie tweeted earlier about being parted from her husband, Mike Fisher, on the romantic holiday. She gushed about receiving a special gift from him before taking the stage. ‘I got to my hotel room this morning to find roses from my sweet Valentine waiting for me. NMW - FEBRUARY 22, 2013

I am such a lucky lady! Happy V-Day everyone!’ she wrote. Carrie is coming down from a critically lauded performance at last weekend’s Grammy Awards. The country music darling performed her hits Two Black Cadillacs and Blown Away at the prestigious ceremony in Los Angeles. It was her dress that really caused a spectacle. Carrie’s floor-sweeping gown was used as a projection screen, which lit up with various vignettes while she sang. Eve ‘didn’t say anything’ About Spears Eve denies she implied Britney Spears didn’t sing on will.i.am’s track Scream & Shout. Britney and will.i.am collaborated on the pop tune and the Toxic singer mimics a British accent throughout. Rapper Eve cast doubt that the pop star had recorded her voice on the song by recently saying on a talk show: ‘I heard that it might not be Britney.’ But Britney’s publicist Jeff Raymond has vehemently denied the claims, saying that these accusations are ‘absolute BS.’ Eve feels that she was misinterpreted. “I didn’t say anything about her singing,’ the rapper told TMZ. ‘I said something about her British accent. We know it’s Britney Spears singing the song. I never said anything.” Eve made the controversial comments during an appearance on Bravo show Watch What Happens Live when host Andy Cohen asked her what she thought of the song. “I heard that might not be Britney,” Eve said. “That’s what I heard, but you know I don’t know, it could be Britney. But I heard it wasn’t.” Scream & Shout, described as a ‘dark club track’ will feature on the Black Eyed Peas star’s new solo album #willpower.

Kenny Chesney always seems to keep pace with the best of them and he does it again at the start of 2013. “Pirate Flag” (Blue Chair/ Columbia Nashville) is the one that has many of our panel raving. The act that is always on everybody’s “favorite” list is Lady Antebellum. They keep building stronger each time out and “Downtown” (Capitol) is just adding to their already valuable stock. Country star Jake Owen is as hot as any Country recording artist can be these days. “Anywhere With You” (RCA Nashville) is the latest from Jake and it’s another solid gem. Kip Moore is not doing so bad either. Case in point is the single “Hey Pretty Girl” (MCA Nashville) that is building on our charts by leaps and bounds. Watch for some big weeks ahead for this gem. Eric Church has most certainly had an award winning few years. He’d like to keep it that way with “Like Jesus Does” (Capitol/EMI). Recording artist Aaron Lewis is also picking up some rave reviews from his latest track. “Forever” (Blaster) is the song that seems to be doing the trick. I really love the new single from Easton Corbin. “All Over The Road” (Universal/UMG) is the one that seems to be bringing in top calls at radio from coast to coast. Get set and ready for Henningsens. They band together for the prolific and wonderful “American Beautiful” (Arista Nashville). Check those building numbers soon. Miranda Lambert continues as strong as any Country gal can be. She put on quite the performance at this year’s Grammy Awards and keeps the fires burning ever so bright with her “Mama’s Broken Heart” (RCA/RLG). Miranda’s man Blake Shelton is not doing too bad either. In addition to his day job on The Voice (NBC) he’s taking the single “Sure Be Cool If You Did” (WB/WEA) for a spin around the block to rave reviews. Carrie Underwood put on one amazing performance at this year’s Grammy Awards. Her smash hit “Two Black Cadillacs” (Arista/RLG) also heads to the top of many of our reporters playlists and for very good reason. New Music Award “winner” Kelly Parkes is off with another chartbuster. “As Good As Me” (Ocala) is the one that could find her in the winner’s circle again next year. Taylor Made are also “on fire” again at Country radio. This award winning act is a “break-out” with their new “That’s What Life Is” (Little General) track. Darius Rucker continues to impress our panel and for good reason. Make sure to check out “Wagon Wheel” (Capitol) and throw a few extra spins his way. The Florida Georgia Line seems to be building a solid list of believers. “Get Your Shine On” (Republic) sets the introduction and the rest is up to the listeners and radio to do their thing. There have been nothing but good words all around for the latest Rascal Flatts single. “Changed” (Big Machine/Universal) is one of their best to date. Doug Newnum & SOS Renewal has been making some huge impressions on our panel. The single that keeps making things happen is “Giving My Best” (Platinum Plus). Love And Theft continue to impress listeners and programmers alike. “Running Out Of Air” (RCA Nashville) is the one with the magical touch. Toby Keith seems to keep things going strong and that’s a good thing. “Hope On the Rocks” (Show Dog/Universal) is oh so good. We are so thrilled to be a part of CRS once again this year. You know I’ll be a busy guy doing many interviews and that’s what this is all about. I’d also like to give a “shout out” to all of the recent “winners” for this year’s New Music Awards. In this issue you will see some of the talent including this month‘s “cover-girl” Kelly Parkes. She’s a remarkable talent and recently picked up a well-deserved award. There are many new independent artists out there that truly deserve your attention and respect. New Music Weekly will continue to “lead the charge” when it comes to breaking new artists especially in the Country arena. Well, enough about us and news about breaking artists and hits. Now it’s time to get down to the business at hand, and that could lead to all of us getting in trouble.

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

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

Country Date To Remember: February 11, 1962 Somewhere, around Fenton, Mo, there are some students who can say that they had one of music’s sexiest performers as a teacher. Sheryl Crow - long before she hit it big in 1993 with “All I Wanna Do,” was actually a music teacher at Kellison Elementary School. Though her teaching days in school are long over, Crow - who turns an amazing 50 years old today has educated many of her fans about some of Country Music’s greatest performers, such as Loretta, Hank, and Johnny Cash. Happy Birthday to one of Rock’s top women! NMW - FEBRUARY 22, 2013

Noel Flynn An artist to be reckond with Meath, England man Noel Flynn grew up loving country music. The Athboy native, who lived in Nottingham, England for a number of years before returning to Meath,England England spent four years as a DJ prior to recording his debut album. Flynn started singing professionally about three years ago. His first album, “Turn Back The Years”, was released in December 2009. A nice blend of Irish and American country, it featured songs as diverse as the Johnny McEvoy classic, “Long Before Your Time”, to Colin Raye’s “Love Me” and from the traditional folk song “Hard Times” to the Ernest Tubb number, “Thanks A Lot”. The album attracted a lot of attention in the Leinster region and provided Flynn with a strong platform to launch his singing career. However, it was the release of his follow-up single “Talking To Your Picture” that secured a lot of airplay on radio stations across Ireland, thus giving him his first major break on the circuit.

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

All of us here at College radio are thrilled to participate in this special CRS issue. I know what a lot of you are thinking, “hey, this is all about Country”, you are wrong my friend. Although Country takes the spotlight here, many of the music and program directors in attendance also program other formats of music. In fact, a good many of our reporters have a Country stations, a Top40, AC and even a College station in the same area, and for many, in the same building. We’d like to also give a big “shout out” to our recent New Music Award “winners”! Now it’s time to look at some news that may be of interest to our College pals but right after that…CRS Party! Are you up on Khaled Dajani? Born in Saudi Arabia, Khaled moved to the US when he was 16 and, against his traditional upbringing, chose to pursue his musical passion with a vengeance. “I was always told, ‘Wise up and get a job and start a family!’ It only made me want to work harder on my craft, so I developed my voice, guitar technique, and unique composition style that I call alternative world fusion.” With the help of fan donations, Dajani brought his vision to life with the making of Luci – a concept album that brings together art, poetry and bold musical combinations, including Middle Eastern and Spanish guitar, driving horns, rock guitar and percussion, and passionate strings. The album opens with the brief ambient guitar intro “Hello” and comes to a passionate climax with “Luci”, a song about the confrontation with Lucifer, followed by a return to freedom with the final song “Yellow Bird”.�Dajani performs regularly throughout New York City, Hoboken, Washington DC, and Pittsburgh. He has already released three albums independently and has toured the US extensively. He also plans to release a series of thematic music videos after Luci’s release. Rolling Stone has released an exclusive look of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds Live DVD, “International Magic Live at The O2” which can be viewed on RollingStone. com. The DVD follows the critically acclaimed release of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds self-titled debut album release and features exclusive footage and music via three formats. The “International Magic Live at The O2” DVD features the band’s largest arena show to date and offers exclusive footage including “Ride The Tiger”. “Ride The Tiger” is a 20 min film which includes Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ three official videos directed by Mike Bruce which Entertainment Weekly called, “...the most successful video trilogy of all time...” All formats of “International M a g i c L i v e a t T h e O 2 ” w i l l b e available M arch 5. This month marks the release date of the latest album from the Bay Area’s Hatchet. The quartet’s sophomore work is a huge step forward in precise aggression, performance, songwriting and production. Having recently confirmed The End Records as the band’s new home the band and label recently shared the first single “Fall From Grace” and have now premiered the title track “Dawn Of The End” on Noisecreep. Since hitting the Bay Area Metal scene in early 2007, Hatchet quickly made a name for itself. They worked hard to gig as often as they could and also not compete with, but group together bands of the like to help strengthen the scene. Focusing on playing with other young starting thrash bands in their area, the fan base grew. Eventually they reached out to the neighboring Los Angeles thrash scene which was also flourishing and invited various bands up to the bay area to diversify their shows, and spread overall thrash metal awareness. As the release date for Slump draws closer, recording artist Sapient has once again topped the Bandcamp charts for his pre-order sales. And it’s easy to see why. With praise for Slump pouring in from NYLON, BlackBook, Pigeons and Planes and a slew of other music and cultural tastemakers, it’s clear that the arrival of Slump is set to redefine the boundaries of indie and hip hop. Stay right here at New Music Weekly for their updates.. NMW - FEBRUARY 22, 2013
