Rocking The

a Backstage - Heartland Entertainment

From the Editor’s Desk Country Radio Seminar

It was yet another “good ole time” at this year’s Country Radio Seminar in the always musical Nashville, Tennessee. The “grand event” always provides the best way to start out a music year and it did not disappoint one bit. For some of us at NMW we ventured from Los Angeles, CA into “Music City” and it was amazing to see some of the changes, especially with the new convention center and hotel that is “in the works”. There will no doubt be many changes at CRS for next year due to this new set up, so many of us were glad to be on hand for what could be the “changing of the guard”. From the time a few of us got off the plane the party pretty much started “out of the box”. It was so great to once again meet up with many of our reporting stations. At times we can forget just how many people we work with on a day to day basis to put this little trade publication together and an event such as this serves as a reminder about just how many people we effect. There was no shortage of artists both new and established that kept us all pretty busy in the media room with interviews and photo highlights. Once again we enlisted the assistance of Buck McCoy who did a stellar job in attending to the many artists and bands that came through our New Music Weekly “media cave”. If you are an artist and you don’t see your name quite yet, we will get to all that we attended to in coming issues. It was always a welcome towards the noon hour to take a break and attend the many luncheons that were offered. One of the highlights included the Back River Entertainment event featuring the likes of Sarah Darling, Craig Morgan and Kellie Pickler. Our photo editor/photographer Masika Swain was on hand and captured many great photos from that and many of our events and you will see many of them in this issue. None of us realized at the time that Kellie Pickler had just been added to the cast of Dancing With the Stars so the timing of having her at this event made it all equally special. All the great food and the mood at the luncheon events gave us the strength and inspiration to go back to work and meet with many more artists and bands for continued coverage. The Grand Ole Opry made its debut at CRS 2013 and what a great move that was. It was a thrilling evening party featuring some special surprises including an unplugged performance from Brad Paisley. Vince Gil played a co-host roll and did a great job while filling us in on the fact that he was set to appear on the new hit television show Nashville that very evening. American Idol winner Scotty McCreery was on hand to perform along with Dustin Lynch, Little Big Town and other Country stars. Our favorite highlight of that event was a performance from Darius Rucker. They went on to play a video of his surprise induction onto the Country Music Hall of Fame and it was a delight to the entire crowd. The New Faces show is always the highlight of a CRS event and this one stood on record as one of the very best. Easton Corbin brought the house down but the energy kept on going with a rocking performance from Brantley Gilbert. The lovely and talented Jana Kramer showed why she’s such a rising star. One of our favorite performances had to be Kip Moore who has been “on fire” as of late. Florida Georgia Line helped to close things out but a surprise visit from Taylor Swift brought the house down. It was only a few years back that we caught newcomer Taylor Swift at her New Faces event and look at just how far she’s come is such a short period of time. We hope you enjoy this Post CRS Issue as much as we loved putting it together for you.

Tobi Gordon has a rich heritage in her parents, grandparents and background singing in church, children’s camps, festivals, and now taking to the national stage with one of the best produced albums to come out of Nashville under the direction of veteran Hit Maker Robert Metzgar. A Contemporary Christian artist from Edmond, Oklahoma, she has been competing with female talent at the major label level in Nashville for the past few years now. From her “Let’s Sing America” album on Platinum Plus Records Nashville, there have been three singles released over the past few years to domestic pop & country radio stations. Gordon’s Alison Krauss style vocals have dominated our NMW charts every week now for over 2 years. It wasn’t until 2012 however, that her song “The Eagle” really broke through at radio stations and went # 1 here at New Music Weekly. The song also was a Top 200 Hot Country Single on the Billboard charts. One national radio programmer at ABC Radio in New York has called her album “the best healing CD I have ever heard”. She has been Microsoft’s leading lady in the “Bringing The Family Together” campaign and continues to build her list of accomplishments. Gordon was nominated as “New Artist Of The Year” for this year’s New Music Awards, and eventually won the award in that category beating out some rather stiff competition. Her latest single “I Want To Live Like That” (Platinum Plus) is set to become her very next #1 single. All of us at New Music Weekly wish her continued success. 3

Demi Lovato has become quite the “go to girl” at Top40 radio. She keeps the radio believers alive and well with “Heart Attack” (Hollywood). It’s another gem from Hollywood Records brightest star. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have a solid #1 single on their hands. “Thrift Shop” took a while to materialize, but the patience has paid off and to great dividends. Cher Lloyd is one red hot recording artist and make no mistake about that. She shines bright in “With Ur Love” (Epic/Sony). Many of our music and program directors are all over this one “big time”. One of the best new acts to come around in quite some time has to be Of Monsters And Men. This band has got a very unique sound and if you don’t believe me just listen to their latest single “Mountain Sound” (Universal Republic). 50 Cent knows how to make friends and keep the hits going. This time out he’s enlisted the likes of Eminem & Adam Levine so his team is stellar. Together this dynamic trio is taking the song “My Life” (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope) out for a spin so look out. The fabulous Goo Goo Dolls are back at the format. Their new “Rebel Beat” (WB/WEA) is a tasty track that gives our pals a modern sound to be sure. We’ll see how it all plays out in the weeks to come. One Republic continues to amaze radio with their brilliance. Case in point may just be found the single “If I Lose Myself” (Interscope). It’s the act at their best and you can’t do any better than that. Muse is on course to become the best band of the decade. They have a huge following and it’s getting even stronger thanks in part to their latest hit single that is “Madness” (WB/WEA). Newcomer Tracy Randall is getting lots of love at the format and for good reason. “I Am All You Need” (Lavish) is the gem that many of our music and program directors just love. Please remember that you heard about her first right here on the pages of New Music Weekly. Rihanna is back with a ballad that is stellar. You can’t help but fall all over the single “Stay” (DefJam/IDJMG) which has to be a huge leap forward for this major recording icon. Young and bubbly Carly Rae Jepsen is keeping the fires alive for her solid recording career. She proves it well with “Tonight I’m Getting Over You” (School Boy/Interscope) and it’s another gem from this rising star. Newcomer K-Squeez is building a huge story at the format. His stellar debut single “I Just Wanna” (Meticulous Records) is the “one to watch”. One Direction can no longer be a “one hit wonder” thanks in part to the success of their new “Kiss You” (Syco/Columbia) single. Lupe Fiasco teamed up with Guy Sebastian and good things continue to happen for them. The single “Battle Scars” (Atlantic/WEA) continues to get raves and lots of spins across the USA. The new act Red Sky is also building a large fan base. The debut single entitled “Chevrolet Deluxe” (RMS) has had an amazing run so far and many believe that “the best is yet to come. Rachel Farris has a good thing and make no mistake about that. The single “Stick Your Tongue In My Mouth” has our panel of stations “going crazy” and this story is building as fast as it can for a newcomer. Nelly is back is getting raves all over the planet. His new “Hey Porsche” (Republic) is one solid winner and we’re so happy for him. Calvin Harris, the super DJ turned songwriter/producer, continues to “rule the world” and can now add a hit single with the amazing Florence Welch. Together they make beautiful music with “Sweet Nothing” (Columbia/Sony). Michael Damian has had an amazing run with his powerful “Rock My Heart” (Weir Brothers). Kesha continues to amaze with “C’mon” (RCA). Bill Songy is rocking the format with his brilliant “Those Days Are Gone” (Franzia). Marsha Jewell is moving to the top spot with “Ragged Angel” (Jewell Lane). Tommy Roe and Melissa Hooker are close behind with “It’s For You I’m Me” (Airebelle Records). Matt Backer and Julian Lennon continue their winning ways with “All That You’ve Wanted” (Right Records). I’ll have more for you regarding the biggest hits at Top40 right here the next time we meet again.

Pink has released one of her best singles to the format ever. “Just Give Me A Reason” (RCA/RLG) that features some additional vocals from that Fun guy, is moving by leaps and bounds and for good reason. This could be her next huge #1 single. Dido is back at the format and that’s always a very good thing. Her latest, after quite some time, is entitled “No Freedom” (RCA/RLG) and it’s so good to have her back where she belongs. Colbie Caillat has teamed up another AC favorite in Gavin DeGraw. Together the two make beautiful music together in the duet “We Both Know” (Republic). We’ll see how this all plays out in the coming weeks but it’s safe to say that these two will have no trouble at radio. Phillip Phillips has finally put another real solid winner into the American Idol arena. His new single “Gone, Gone, Gone” (19/Interscope) should keep him there for the near future. Ed Sheeran has come from out of nowhere to become this huge overnight sensation. He keeps his dream alive with “Lego House” (Asylum/WB) and if you add that to his opening slot on the sold out Taylor Swift tour, he should be feeling pretty good about things at this point. Sheryl Crow is back at radio and why not. She’s been through quite a lot as she takes the song “Easy” (WB/WEA) out for a spin. It’s really quite an excellent track and expect some good things ahead from many of our music and program directors. David Bowie is back on the scene and for good reason. One of those reasons may just be a solid single “The Stars Are Out Tonight” (Columbia/Sony). Never count David out as he is always re-inventing himself. His good pal Eric Clapton is also fighting to get back in the game. He won’t have to do much as his new offering in “Gotta Get Over” (Reprise/WEA) is “oh so good”. One of the best new bands in quite some time ala Fun are on the move. With shades of Queen, this outfit has been playing live shows for a dozen years and they are taking their latest single “Carry On” (Fueled By Ramen) to the top of the charts. There has been a stellar buzz over the band Muse for quite some time. That makes it even sweeter that their “Madness” single (WB/WEA) is giving them the added attention they so deserve. Bruno Mars continues to amaze us every time out. He does it again accompanied by just a piano in “When I Was Your Man” (Atlantic/WEA). The new act Walk Off The Earth is really starting to take off “big time”. They have a red-hot Hit on their hands entitled “Red Hands” (Columbia Nashville) that is helping them make their mark. Keep your eyes and ears open for this one my friends. The act Red Sky has got something magical going on at radio. They have had a number of very impressive “most added” weeks for their debut single “Chevrolet Deluxe” (RMS) & now they are making their way up the charts by “leaps and bounds”. Newcomer Tracy Randall also has a good thing going and make no mistake about it. “I Am All You Need” (Lavish) is the gem that many of you are raving about. Alicia Keys continues her winning ways as the song “Girl On Fire” (RCA/RLG) becomes her latest anthem. Josh Groban is also getting some good attention for her new “Brave” (Reprise/WEA) single. Emeli Sande is the new kid on the block and she explodes with her debut red hot single “Next To Me” (Capitol). Justin Timberlake has teamed up with Jay Z for the lovable single “Suit & Tie” (RCA/RLG). The fabulous Goo Goo Dolls are back with “Rebel Beat” (WB/WEA) and that’s a good thing. Michael Damian is rocking with his brilliant and powerful “Rock My Heart” (Weir Brothers). Bill Songy is breaking his way to the “top of the charts” with his debut Hit “Those Days Are Gone” (Franzia). Marsha Jewell is close to the #1 spot with her excellent “Ragged Angel” (Jewell Lane). Tommy Roe and Melissa Hooker have a good thing going with “It’s For You I’m Me” (Airebelle Records). Matt Backer and Julian Lennon continue their #1 ways with “All That You’ve Wanted” (Right Records). We’ll have more for you next time right here.

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. NMW - MARCH 29, 2013

MUSIC BIZ Snoop Lion: Kids’ Social Circle Is Like UN Snoop Lion has likened his children’s social groups to the United Nations because they are so varied. The American rapper - previously known as Snoop Dogg - is amazed by how much the world has changed during his lifetime. Many of the things his children take for granted were not available to him as a young man and the 41-year-old star hopes the world keeps progressing. “I grew up where white people was over there, Mexican people was with us, Asian motherf***ers is over there, Iranians working at the store, you could f**k with them, we’d f**ked the Koreans. Now the kids, their friends are white, Asian, black, Hispanic, no boundaries. My kids’ friends? It’s like the United Nations!” he laughed to Q magazine. Snoop received his new name from a Rastafarian priest in Jamaica. When he announced the change he also detailed the new direction he is going in with his music. His latest album Reincarnated is a reggae record and he has turned his back on his old ways and now claims his life is about peace and love. His new outlook has influenced how he sees the changes in the world. “[When I grew up] I could be killed, looking at a white woman,” he said. “Now? You could be my woman. We could have kids together! Guess what? You can even be gay now. Gay-bashing? My kids don’t even know what that sh*t means. We’re doing awesome.” Snoop used to call himself a cartoon character and was proud of his lavish lifestyle, which included a great deal of jewellery and fancy clothes. He’s proud to have changed although his new way of life also makes him laugh in some ways. “Well, when you reach a pinnacle you finally wake up, put aside childish ways and want to do something positive. You can affect people,” he said. “You have kids and you understand what life is about. “Yeah, at 40 most men decide to live wild and crazy because they’ve been so conservative all along. Me, I’ve been living wild and crazy my whole life!”

Bruno Mars reveals tour demands

Bruno Mars only needs “wine and wet wipes” in his tour rider. The singer rose to fame with 2010 album DooWops & Hooligans and has gone on to make millions with his music. Despite being able to make any kind of backstage demand, it seems Bruno prefers to keep things simple. TMZ listed crazy things other celebrities had asked for, such as Lady Gaga’s supposed request for a nude mannequin and Van Halen banning brown M&M sweets. “Mine’s pretty boring compared to that stuff!” Bruno marvelled. “Wet wipes and a bottle of wine and I’m good to go!” The website proceeded to quip the cleansing wipes would come in handy when there’s no shower around. NMW - MARCH 29, 2013

“That’s all we got sometimes!” the star laughed in response. Bruno will be heading off in June on his The Moonshine Jungle Tour. The shows kick off in the US before finishing in Spain in November. It seems the singer is already getting in the mood for performing new songs such as Locked Out of Heaven and When I Was Your Man. “I feel like dancing (sic),” he posted on his Twitter page. Although Bruno prefers the simple life when away on tour, he won’t settle for anything less than amazing when penning songs. The 27-year-old recently revealed the hard work that goes into his music. “You know how hard it is to write a big song? That sh*t is hard, man. It’s so hard to do. Might be one of the hardest things to ever do,” he argued in an interview with GQ. “I don’t ever want to come out with something safe and get away with, ‘It sounds good!’ It’s got to be more than sounding good.’

Elton John Biopic On The way

Rocket Pictures has chosen Michael Gracey to direct the film Rocketman, the biopic of Elton John. Gracey has been very active in the world of commercials for a few years, including work for TMobile, Evian, McCain and Lipton, most of which are heavy in special effects and choreography. He has recently also signed to direct The Greatest Showman on Earth with Hugh Jackman and The Muppet Man for Jim Henson Productions. The director’s unique vision was felt to be perfect for the story of Elton John. Gracey said ‘Everyone knows and loves Elton John’s music, but the true story of his life is so incredible that it can only be described as a fantasy. His journey from impossible dreamer to stardom and uncontrollable excess is something only a musical film can capture, and I’m so excited to be the one to tell his story.’ The film, being written by Lee Hall (Billy Elliot), is expected to include numerous musical numbers in fantasy settings. Rocket CEO Steve Hamilton Shaw said ‘Michael has an innovative, imaginative and compelling vision for the film. We want to create an experience that surprises and moves audiences and knew immediately that he was the perfect director to take them on this journey.’ The search is currently on for a child to play Elton at the age of 5. No word yet on when production is expected to start.

Michael Bublé: I Only Write Drunk

Michael Bublé has joked that he never writes songs when he is sober. The Canadian music star is currently promoting his new album To Be Loved and has discussed his song writing process. Musicians often have a unique way of letting their creative juices flow and Michael claims that alcohol helped him find inspiration for his new song It’s

Vol. 15 Issue 3

a Beautiful Day. ‘I have always written these songs about love, or loss or longing. I just sat down at the piano and I started to work on this tune and the lyrics just came right out. I was drunk, that’s the truth ‘ I have never written anything sober in my life. I think if I tried to write sober.,’ he laughed to BBC News. ‘I thought this is a great concept, I am going to write this song about a guy whose girlfriend thinks she’s the greatest and dumps him. And he realises that once she is gone, his life gets so much better.’ The 37-year-old star insists the song isn’t based on personal experience. Michael is happily married to Luisana Lopilato and the Argentine actress-and-model is currently expecting the couple’s first baby, a boy. Michael took a sly dig at fellow singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, by quipping that he should rely more on his romantic history for album material. ‘I wish it was, but no. I should say it is based on truth, maybe I will be as popular as Taylor Swift if I say that. Maybe I should date Taylor Swift!’ Michael laughed. As well as new tracks, Michael has also covered some of his favourite songs for the new album. He teamed up with Reese Witherspoon for a rendition of the classic Frank and Nancy Sinatra duet Something Stupid and was impressed by the Oscar-winning actress’ talent in the studio. ‘I had gone through the singers I knew, like Adele and Katy Perry, and my manager said, ‘What about Reese Witherspoon?’ because both of us were absolutely fascinated by Walk the Line,’ he explained. ‘She walked into the studio and nailed it, there was no messing around or having to piece things together.’ To Be Loved is Michael’s sixth studio album and will be released worldwide next month.

Brad Paisley ‘Disturbed’ By Nashville TV Show

Brad Paisley finds Nashville “too disturbing” to watch even though his wife stars in it. The country music singer is married to Kimberly Williams, who plays Peggy Kenter in the US TV show. The programme follows singers in the famous country music arena as they battle to build and maintain their careers. Although Brad is intensely proud of his spouse, he is unable to tune in the series. “I can’t watch it. It is really good, but it’s disturbing to me, too close to what I do. It’s like if I was in the CIA, I don’t know if I’d watch Homeland. But I’m not, so I do,” he told Parade magazine. Brad and Kimberly met when he cast her in one of his promos, after seeing her in the movie Father of the Bride. They now have two children together and couldn’’t be happier, even though she describes him as a workaholic. He knows that is true and admits living with him must be tough at times. “When you’re a creative person, there are just times when you’re not

listening. You know, I could be looking right at you and thinking about something else,” he explained. The singer is gearing up for the release of his new record Wheelhouse next month and he’’s looking forward to seeing how it’’s received by fans and critics. It includes tracks about religion and slavery, with LL Cool J also appearing as a guest rapper. Although it’’s a departure for Brad, he’’s sure people will warm to it. “Maybe I’m naive, but I give them a lot of credit for having been with me a long time and knowing me really well,” he replied, when asked what his fans will make of his new sound. “So it’s not like with one album I’m a whole new guy. I’ve had a great career, and if I don’t have one after this... then so be it.”

My Chemical Romance Announce Shock Split

My Chemical Romance have stunned fans by announcing a surprise split. The alternative rockers are going their separate ways after 12 years together. After topping the charts with the classic ‘Welcome To The Black Parade’ in 2006 they became an alternative staple but today an emotional statement brought the journey to an end. The statement said ‘it has come time for it to end’. ‘Being in this band for the past 12 years has been a true blessing.’ ‘We’ve gotten to go places we never knew we would. We’ve been able to see and experience things we never imagined possible. We’ve shared the stage with people we admire, people we look up to, and best of all, our friends. And now, like all great things, it has come time for it to end. ‘Thanks for all of your support, and for being part of the adventure.’ My Chemical Romance formed in New Jersey in 2001. The band consisted of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, and bassist Mikey Way. Shortly after forming, the band signed to Eyeball Records and released their debut album I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love in 2002. They signed with Reprise Records the next year and released their major label debut Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge in 2004; the album was a commercial success, and was awarded platinum status a little over a year later. The band eclipsed their previous success with their 2006 concept album, The Black Parade, which gained generally favorable reviews among music critics. Their fourth studio album, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, was released on November 22, 2010, to positive reviews. Fans are taking the sudden news with great sadness. One commented to Music-News.com “They changed my life, allowed me to feel comfortable being me, it’s the end of an era.”

Rihanna ‘Warned To Slow Down’

Rihanna has allegedly been warned by doctors to make some “serious lifestyle changes” or risk putting her health on the line. The international superstar - who is 21

famed for her party-hard antics - was forced to cancel tour dates in Baltimore and Boston recently after contracting laryngitis. Medical experts have now reportedly warned the songstress to slow down her hectic schedule. “Rihanna’s illness was so severe that doctors warned it could take months for her to fully recover - there were worries that she’d have to cancel her entire tour,” a source told British magazine Heat. “They’ve told her that she needs to make some serious lifestyle changes, or risk this happening again. “This has given her a scare. But Rihanna knows it’s partly self-inflicted. She loves to smoke, drink and stay up late. Her body was bound to need a break at some point. She’s now on a mission to start looking after herself.” Rihanna’s recent reunion with violent beau Chris Brown has caused a negative backlash, which is also said to have put the pop beauty under strain. “Ri-Ri’s received death threats, verbal attacks and has fallen out with some of her best friends, including Katy Perry. This has taken a huge emotional toll,” the insider added. Rihanna was admitted to hospital with suspected exhaustion and put on a drip during her world tour last year.

Moby & Mark Lanegan Collaborate For Record Store Day

22

The ACM Awards on April 7 will have a very special performance as the organizations last two Artists of the Decade, George Strait and Garth Brooks, will perform together for the first time and it’s all for the late Dick Clark. Clark will be honoured at the show for his many years of producing the ACM Awards show, dating back to 1979. He died last year just over two weeks after the 2012 ceremony. Strait said of the performance ‘Dick helped make country music accessible to a larger fan base and his efforts will not be forgotten. Garth and I were so grateful when we each received the ACM Artist of the Decade Award, so it’s only fitting that we’ll be honoring him with this tribute performance.’ Brooks added ‘Although there is no award the entertainment industry has that can match the magnitude of the star Dick Clark was, and still is, it is an honor to get to be a part of the Academy’s tribute to him. There may be others who have contributed as much to the music industry, but there is definitely no one that contributed more than Dick Clark. He was music’s best friend, and a dear friend to me.’

Miley Cyrus: Twerking Comes Naturally

Moby said “i’ve been a fan of Mark’s from his early SST Records days, and i’ve always wanted to work with him. he has one of the best and most distinctive voices of the last 25 years. now that we live near each other it ended up being really easy working on a song together.”

Dick Clark To Be Honoured

This past summer, Bobby Womack released his first album of original material in eighteen years. The Bravest Man In The Universe was co-produced by Bobby with Damon Albarn and Richard Russell and was released to rave reviews across the globe. Bobby, Damon and Richard performed live all over the world with their band, and also graced the stages of many television shows including Later With Jools Holland and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. It was a magical show of force from one of our most treasured soul singers. We are excited to expand the album by adding four new tracks, three of which haven’t been heard. ‘It’s Been A Long Night’ was completed in brand-new sessions in New York at the end of last year.

Miley Cyrus puts ‘a lot of booty action’ into her ‘twerking’ technique. The 20-year-old actress posted a video on Facebook March 20 in which she was performing the dance in a unicorn onepiece. Apparently Miley’s fans have been heaping praise on the star for her twerking abilities. “I haven’’t really seen one bad comment about my twerk video,” she told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show. “This is the first thing! I can’’t sing, I can’’t act, I’’m dumb, I’’m a hillbilly, but I can twerk, so whatever! You can’’t really explain it. It’’s something that comes naturally...it’’s a lot of booty action. “[I’ve] been practicing [twerking] probably for the past two years. I can’’t believe how many people think I’’m good at twerking -- which is dope - like my life goal has been accomplished. I thought it was so weird, and [I thought] people were going to think it was so weird, but I’’m glad that everyone understands my humour.” Miley will release her new album Danger Zone this year. She is particularly excited about her single with rapper Snoop Lion, formerly known as Snoop Dogg. “I did a song with Snoop, and it’’s coming out very, very soon. Very soon,” she shared. “[It’’s] recorded, done, and I’’m, like, so excited about it.’ Miley hopes fans will also respond favourably to all of the music on Danger Zone. The star pursued sounds she has always wanted to explore while penning songs for this album. “I want this record to be, you know, just something that’’s, like, different and a bunch of, like, passion projects,” Miley explained.

Sparks Gives Derulo ‘Proposal Guidelines’

Once streams entire cast album for free #OnceCastAlbum To celebrate Once The Musical opening in London’s West End, the producers of the show are treating fans to a FREE stream of the full Grammy and Tony Award Winning Broadway Cast Album. Check it out on Facebook and Soundcloud. Based on the much-loved Oscar- winning film, Once The Musical is an extraordinary, original and irresistibly joyous celebration of love, friendship and music. Declan Bennett and Zrinka Cvitesiæ will lead the cast as Guy and Girl respectively in John Tiffany’s West End production of the Broadway hit musical opening at the Phoenix Theatre in March 2013.

Jordin Sparks has given Jason Derülo “guidelines” ahead of his proposal. The two singers have been dating for around 18 months and have made no secret of their plans to tie the knot. They became especially close after Jason suffered an injury while preparing for his tour, resulting in a broken neck. Jordin nursed him through the injury and he is adamant she is the perfect person for him. “I have a date in mind. I want to surprise her, but she’s given me guidelines first. I have to ask her dad for permission!” he laughed to National Enquirer. The star hinted he might have an extra special proposal in mind. He has penned a tune called Marry Me, which it’s thought he might sing as he gets down on one knee. Jordin was close to Whitney Houston, who passed away last year. The two women appeared alongside each other in the movie Sparkle and the younger star was devastated when Whitney died. Jason helped her come to terms with her grief and that is one of the reasons she knows he is her Mr. Right. “You really see the people you love and you go, ‘I don’t want to lose you.’ So, it’s a conversation we have, but we’re not in a rush,’ she explained last year. “I hope he does [ask me to marry him]! It’s not happening yet, but I hope so!”

Lil Wayne Disputes Death Rumours

NBC’s The Voice Season 3 contestant and Chicago, IL vocal phenomenon DE’BORAH is pleased to announce that her debut single, ‘Coming Out Looking Good’, is available via iTunes now! You can find the track at this link. Also, DE’BORAH can now announce that she has signed with Chicago-based label WuLi Records. WuLi Records is also known for releasing the early catalog of American Idol Season 9 winner Lee DeWyze, as well as working with rock bands Reform The Resistance and rapper The Redd.

Lil Wayne insists he is “more than good” following his stint in hospital after suffering seizures. The 30-year-old rapper, real name Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., suffered from uncontrollable convulsions on March 12 and was taken to a Los Angeles hospital, where he stayed in the Intensive Care Unit. Exaggerated reports surfaced claiming the star was on his deathbed, however in a new video with TMZ - who broke the story - Lil Wayne reveals he is back to full health. “I just want to say thank you to y’all for all y’all prayers and y’all concerns and all that. I swear to God, I felt the love when I was laid up in that motherf**king hospital bed. I want y’all to know that I’m good, n*****, more than good,” he said in the video. “Also, my album is still coming out March 26. Also I’m still going on tour, America’s Most Wanted tour with some of my closest friends.” I Am Not a Human Being II is the upcoming tenth studio album by the American rapper and serves as the sequel to his eighth studio album, I Am Not a Human Being. TMZ also linked Wayne’s seizure episode to an overdose of a concoction called Sizzurp, which includes prescription-strength cough syrup with codeine as its primary ingredient. The rapper’s record boss Mack Maine recently denied such claims. “A lot of blogs and stuff put out some foolishness, but that wasn’t true,” he said. “He has four kids. Imagine his daughter hearing that somewhere in school or something like that, so he wasn’t too happy about that.”

Gordon Stoker of The Jordanaires passes away

Gordon Stoker, tenor and manager of the Jordanaires who spent years backing Elvis Presley along with many other greats, died on Wednesday after a long illness at the age of 88. His son, Alan, told the AP that he passed at his home in Brentwood, TN. He was originally a piano player, whose dedication to the instrument and his talent for playing in clubs got him his first professional offer at the age of 12. He and the group for which he played, The Clement Trio, went to Nashville where they were heard every morning on WSM. After being drafted into the Army during World War II, where he spent three years as a teletype operator, Stoker came home and went to Oklahoma Baptist University, starting in psychology but ending up in music and voice. He eventually went back to Nashville where he eventually auditioned for and got the job as the pianist for the Jordanaires. Two years later, in 1952, Stoker stepped up to replace Bill Matthews as the tenor in the group. It was a position he would hold until his death. The Jordanaires were mainly a gospel group who successfully brought the music to a white audience in the south. In 1955, they were working with Eddy Arnold on his new TV show when a young Elvis Presley, who was still recording for Sun Records, asked if they would back him up should he ever make it big. The next year, Chet Atkins called Stoker asking if he would back up NMW - MARCH 29, 2013

Presley with two other RCA artists, Ben and Brock Spears. The trio recorded I Was the One and I’m Counting on You with Presley; however, Elvis wasn’t entirely happy. At the next session, he confessed to Stoker that he wanted the Jordanaires, not this slapped together group. Stoker made arrangements with RCA executives and the real group would appear on nearly every Elvis record for the next 14 years. Post-Elvis, the group became one of the most requested studio artists in Nashville, working with Patsy Cline, Jim Reeves, Marty Robbins, Ricky Nelson and many more. One estimate put their output at 30,000 sides for between 2,200 and 2,500 artists. The work was so lucrative that, when Elvis wanted them back for his new contracts in Las Vegas, they had to turn him down. Stoker once explained ‘Back around the time of our first hit record in 1957, a record producer told us to forget about the hit parade. Stars are here today and gone tomorrow. The industry needed good backup singers. We didn’t think he was telling the truth, but, boy, was he ever. For 23 years we had two to four sessions a day, six days a week.’ Among their many honors are the NARAS Superpickers Award for having performed on more top ten records then any artists in history, the CMA Masters Award and memberships in the Country Music Association, Gospel Music, Vocal Group, Christian Music and Rockabilly Halls of Fame. They won Grammys for Jimmy Dean’s Big Bad John (Record of the Year), Tennessee Ernie Ford’s Great Gospel Songs, Elvis Presley’s How Great Thou Art and Larry Ford and the Light Crust Doughboys’ We Called Him Mr. Gospel Music: The James Blackwood Tribute Album and were nominated 15 more times.

Harriet will wrap up a free month-long residency tonight at The Echo in Los Angeles tonight. The band is currently putting the finishing touches on their forthcoming debut full length album due out this summer and has been previewing much of the new material during these shows. See below for recently released live video of the new track “Bring Me When You Go”. Harriet’s yet to be titled new album was funded via Kickstarter by hundreds of dedicated fans who pledged over $12,000 to make the album a reality -- more than doubling their initial funding goal.

It’s not everyday that a 17-year-old has the opportunity to accomplish a lifelong dream, but RED Bow Records’ Rachel Farley did just that when she stepped onto the infamous Grand Ole Opry stage on Friday, March 15 for the first time in her musical career. The evening was quite surreal for Farley, considering it was only six years prior that she visited the Opry as a spectator to see one of her musical idols, Martina McBride, during her very first trip to Nashville. 25

The Band Perry continues strong and powerful at Country radio. They are out with the single “Done” (Republic) and this one is off to a flying start at the format. Last week it ranked at the top of our “most added” and now it’s on the way up the charts. Jason Aldean is as hot as ever. In fact, he just did a video that was filled with Country star support for his new track “1994” (Broken Bow/Sony). It looks like another stellar year for this country rocker. I really love the new Brad Paisley single “Beat This Summer” (Arista Nashville). It was also great meeting him at this year’s CRS. Watch for some big news in the weeks ahead to come from Brad. If you want to talk about things coming full circle, how about Tim McGraw pairing up for a duet with Taylor Swift? That’s just what’s happened over the last few weeks as the single “Highway Don’t Care” (Big Machine/Universal) takes flight. You will remember that it was Taylor who first broke at radio with her tribute song to McGraw. The Zac Brown Band is off to their old ways and that includes more hits at Country radio. “Jump Right In” (Atlantic/WEA) is their latest and what a career these boys now have and in such a short period of time. Brantley Gilbert is hotter than a pistol. He’s getting the job done as his new single “More Than Miles” (Valory Music/Universal) picks up a bunch of early believers. Billy Currington is always one of my favorites. He doesn’t disappoint one bit with the new “Hey Girl” (Mercury) cut. Many of our music and programmers are all over this one. Also getting some love at the format is Darius Rucker. He keeps the hit list building strong with the remake of Zac Brown’s “Wagon Wheel” (Capitol). It was also great seeing him at this year’s Country Radio Seminar and to watch him getting inducted onto the Country Music Hall of Fame was a real treat. It’s always great to see Sheryl Crow getting some love at Country. Her new single entitled “Easy” (WB/WEA) should find her some believers at Country radio. Country recording artist Jon Pardi is also getting a strong start. Many of you are really loving the new “Up All Night” (Capitol) and for good reason. Justin Moore is also getting lots of love and respect from our programmers. Many of them are falling all over the “Point At You” (Valory Music/Universal) single. Jeff Maddox has also been getting some strong support at radio. The single “These Days” from Platinum Plus Records is so good and deserves your immediate attention. Kenny Chesney keeps getting lots of spins around the USA. He still does it better than most as “Pirate Flag” (Blue Chair/Columbia Nashville) keeps flying ever so bright. Lady Antebellum have a good thing going and that’s a fact. This super lucky and talented outfit is getting lots of praise for their “Downtown” (Capitol) track. Kip Moore made an impressive showing at this year’s Country Radio Seminar. Our photo editor Masika Swain was covering him from every angle, especially when performing his new hit single “Hey Pretty Girl” (MCA Nashville). Philip Claypool is pulling in some action this week. The single “I’m Gonna Lie” is helping out on that. Another independent artist, Jerry D, is getting some solid action for his new “You Found The Key” (Nashville Impact) cut. Also getting in on the action are Indie favorites the Leverton Brothers with the red hot “Pole Cat Holler” (Lure) single. Jake Owen keeps getting strong spins for “Anywhere With You” (RCA Nashville). Everybody raves about the Eric Church single “Like Jesus Does” (Capitol/EMI). Easton Corbin is becoming a fan favorite with “All Over The Road” (Universal/UMG). Kelly Parkes has not stopped short of the finish line with her “As Good As Me” (Ocala) single. Another Ocala hit building is by the Wheeler Sisters entitled “Whisky Please”. This issue’s “Cover Girl” Tobi Gordon has a good thing going with “I Want To Live Like That” (Platinum Plus). Again, it was great seeing many of you at this year’s CRS and I’ll have more for you next time partners.

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 - MARCH 29, 2013

Terri Clark Brings Dierks Bentley & Reba Along for ‘Classic’ Album It can be interesting sometimes how great minds think alike. If you need proof of this, talk to Terri Clark about her new covers disc, entitled “Classic.” “The president of my record label in Canada came to me and asked if I would do an album of country classics,” she told Billboard, adding that the idea was one that she had dreamed of for a long time. “Of course, I just did back flips.”

“Classic” allows Clark a chance to share some family musical memories, as she does on the cover of Kitty Wells’ “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels.” The track kicks off with an archival recording of the deep catalog Wells hit “The White Circle On My Finger” from someone the singer is very familiar with.

“The intro is actually my grandmother. She and my grandfather played country music professionally in the clubs of Montreal. They would wear the hats and the fringed outfits. They looked like Roy Rogers and Dale Evans. They opened shows for Johnny Cash and George Jones, and my grandfather tells tales about sitting up all night drinking whiskey with Little Jimmy Dickens.” She added, “Country music is such a legacy in my family. They actually did some recording back in the 50s in a studio with their band. A friend of my grandmother handed me this vinyl album one day when I was a teenager and said ‘Your nanny is singing on this. I want you to take good care of it.’ At the time, I still had a turntable, so I put it on and started to listen to it. I thought ‘Someday when I’m a famous country singer. I’m going to do something with this.’ A lot of people think it’s Kitty until they read the liner notes and find out it’s my grandmother.”

Recording Reba McEntire’s 1984 hit “How Blue” took Clark back in time on a personal level, as Clark recalled her album My Kind Of Country. “She’s on the cover in blue jeans, belt buckle, and a vest looking like a rodeo queen,” related the singer. “You look at my image, and I’m still wearing that stuff. There was such a clarity and genuine purity to her voice that I loved. I would sit in the kitchen while my mother was cooking dinner and sing ‘How Blue,’ and do the harmony part. I would try to sing both parts.” Clark didn’t have to harmonize with herself this time, as McEntire joined her live on the track. “Fast forward to today, we were in the studio, and she was singing that part standing next to me. She sang through it in thirty seconds, and then said ‘Well, what else do you want me to do?”

Other guests on the album include Jann Arden (“Leavin’ On Your Mind”), Tanya Tucker (“Delta Dawn”), and Dierks Bentley -- who plays the George Jones part to Clark’s Wynette on “Golden Ring.” Of her collaboration with Bentley, Clark said “Dierks loves traditional country, and he’s one of the artists that honors that in so many levels.”

When asked if she felt any pressure putting her stamp on the eleven cuts on the disc, she struck a realistic tone. “I can only open my mouth and sound like myself when I’m not trying to mimic somebody else. You can’t really think about it too much, and you just have to be natural. There’s an unspoken respect with every one of these songs that you don’t try to paint over the Mona Lisa. The original versions of these songs will always stand the test of time. I’m just a bit of different voice bringing them up to 2013.”

The disc is available via her website at www.TerriClark.com, Amazon, and iTunes, as well as at Barnes & Noble. The singer will be touring Canada through the end of April to promote the release, and will be hitting the U.S. later in the year. 41

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 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. Additional details can be found at noelflynnmusic.com If you have a venue and wish to book Flynn please contact: Email: Noel.flynnmusic@gmail.com Tele: Noel on 0353 0862337414

We were all so excited to participate in this year’s SXSW! All of us here at College radio had such a great time that we can’t even get back to work here. So many of our reporters were on hand from Top40, AC, College to of course Country, and how cool it was to see so many in attendance. Now take a look at some news that may be of interest to you. Southern singer-songwriter Shanna Sharp adds a touch of country charm to an alternative pop vibe in her upcoming fourth album “Silver Linings Under Grey”, which she will self-release this week. This 5-track album uncovers Shanna’s vulnerability and acceptance as she pours her heart out in these musical vignettes about light and dark sides of love, the good that shines through the bad. A departure from her last full-length album Long Distance Calls from a One Night Stand told stories of fleeting romances, travels and a love that might have been, Shanna’s new Silver Linings portrays the love that is and all the good, the bad and “the everyday boring stuff that comes with it.” Says Shanna about Silver Linings, “This new album I feel really shows how I’ve evolved as a person and a musician. I wanted to focus on what could be in my writing and what I wanted for myself. I wanted to believe in hope and passion. So what started out being songs based in thought or wish became songs of my everyday reality.” Silver Linings Under Grey by Shanna Sharp unfolds this week. Acclaimed vocalist, Michael English, is set to release his new release, Some People Change this week. The highly anticipated project is Michael’s first studio recording in six years and is being released by Curb Records. Although this is his first solo recording in several years, the gifted singer has hardly been resting. Michael has kept an extremely busy touring and recording schedule as a member of the Grammy® awardwinning Gaither Vocal Band. Michael’s penetrating, powerpacked vocals are at the forefront on this new release as he is featured on brand new songs, “That Great Day,” “Waking Up The Dawn,” the current single “Stubborn,” time-tested classics such as “I’d Rather Have Jesus,” and a brand-new version of Michael’s hit song, “In Christ Alone.” A bonus track, “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” is included from the film “The Last Ride,” about the life of Hank Williams. Some People Change is currently available for pre-orders on MichaelEnglishMusic. com and all orders from the website will be autographed by Michael. Some People Change releases this week and will be available on iTunes, Amazon, all digital retailers as well as physical retail outlets such as Lifeway, Walmart and others. Michele Clark’s Sunset Sessions, a music industry convention and talent showcase, will head back to Carlsbad, CA (June 6, 7 & 8) for the seventh time for Sunset Sessions ROCK. Sunset Sessions ROCK will take over the entire new luxurious Hilton Oceanfront Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, CA, showcasing some of the latest and greatest in ROCK music. This convention will mark the 20th anniversary of Sunset Sessions and the third for Sunset Sessions Rock!
