WINNERS

A POST CRS 2012 I t’s hard to believe that the first quarter of this year is already over. We’ve been seeing some new artists and bands emerge and that is a good sign that this is set to become a very solid year at radio. Some of the new material is exceptional and a few of the early entries can be found on the charts in this issue. New artist and bands won’t find a better friend than right here at New Music Weekly. Many major artists are also starting with some great new material and only here can you see how both the major and the independent artists fare when it comes to chart action. Our music and programmers are pretty fired up about the new music as well and that keeps the team pretty “pumped up” as we move forward. O nce again we took part in the annual CRS in beautiful Nashville Tennessee. The grand event always comes at the perfect time of year and many artists and record labels were there set and ready to announce and promote their new releases. We tried to get to as many events as well could and they were endless. The very best part of any CRS is the opportunity to connect with many of our stations, programmers and industry professionals. There were plenty of artists, labels and managers on hand as well to provide information that we can use the rest of this year. New Music Weekly just announced the “winners” for our annual New Music Awards several weeks ago. In this issue we salute many of our winners and this is our chance to say a “congratulations” to them and to all of the nominees. This also gave us an opportunity to pay a well-deserved tribute to our radio stations, music and program directors. There were also nods to records labels and radio promotion people as well. Although there was no “live-event”, there was plenty of press activity out there in the music industry and it continues as of this writing. Make sure you check out some of the artists that took the time to thank radio inside this issue. They all deserve a little extra support. W e continue to provide “tools of the trade” here and will continue to do so. NMW is now in pre-production for our next Future Hits compilation. This powerful vehicle enables artists and bands to get their music to “all of radio” in one single shot. Artists also receive additional digital support through Airplay Access. The team is also making special advertising rates available to those who participate in Future Hits. Please notify any artists or bands you may know in your area that may need some help in getting their new release serviced to the music world. There will also be additional print and column support for all those who come “on board”. Please contact us here at New Music Weekly at your earliest convenience as the CD compilation is filling up fast. O ur STS tracking system continues to provide the best way to track your songs. Our charts are provided each and every week in multi-formats and there as an abundant amount information provided from the system. Keep in mind that with us, all stations are treated as equals regardless of market size. Some out there might be touting the power of an ever shrinking Billboard magazine or another trade publication, but how much help do any of the others out there give the artist or band on an independent label? You’ll find everything you really need right here on the pages and charts of New Music Weekly.

Carrie Underwood was first introduced to all of us on American Idol. Her career has exploded since that time and we’ve been following her story here at New Music Weekly from the start . All of us are captivated by both her vocal talent and personality. With just three albums behind her, Carrie has built a career that would be the treasured work of a lifetime for most artists. From songs like “Jesus, Take The Wheel,” “Before He Cheats,” “So Small,” “All-American Girl,” “Last Name,” “Just A Dream,” to “Cowboy Casanova, they have been a rich part of the new millennium’s musical soundscape. She has passed the thirteen million mark in CD sales and was the first country artist in history to achieve ten #1 singles from her first two albums. She scored three more #1 singles from Play On bringing her total to 13 #1 singles. She is a two-time ACM Entertainer of the Year recipient, the seventh woman in the show’s 42-year history to take that crown and the first woman in history to win the award more than once. Among Carrie’s most treasured milestones is her induction into the Grand Ole Opry. She’s been on our charts here at New Music Weekly since the start and we’ll continue to follow and track the amazing Carrie Underwood. 3

Coldplay has teamed up with Rihanna for quite the pairing. “Princess Of China” (Capitol) is the gem that many of you are raving about. Rihanna also has a solo single to contend with. “Birthday Cake” (Def Jam) is also getting plenty of action at the format. Madonna is back and make no mistake about that. Her latest single “Give Me All Your Love” (Interscope) is so hot that she’s already getting several more set and ready for release. This all goes in the plan along with her world-wide tour that is set to break records. Her favorite new friend in Nicki Minaj is also getting her musical groove on. “Starships” (Cash Money/Universal) is the track that is making magic for the new queen of mean. Not sure if Madonna ever forgave her for giving the “finger” during her Super Bowl performance but I’m sure that Madonna actually loved it. Foster the People is making quite the name for themselves. This outfit from “down-under” is taking their latest “Don’t Stop” (Columbia/Sony) for a spin around the block and its getting quite a solid response. Katy Perry continues to be as hot as any female singer around. She proves it once again with her new “Part Of Me” (Capitol) single. Lady Gaga is still getting plenty of action at the format and make no mistake that she’s not going anywhere but up. Her latest red hot hit single “Marry The Night” (Interscope) is still pulling in some rather impressive spins. Karmin is an artist to watch and spin immediately. “Broken Hearted” (Epic/Sony) is a proven winner and make some room on your playlist for this gem. Jessie J is making quite a stand at Top40 radio these days. A case in point may just be found in his “Domino” (Lava/Atlantic) track that is really “on fire”. “Stronger” (RCA/RLG) from Kelly Clarkson just keeps getting “stronger”. Our music and program directors are all over this one big time. Jason Derulo is back with a pretty solid single. “Breathing” (WB/WEA) is the track that is getting Jason “back on track”. Those fabulous All American Rejects are getting something started at the format. “Beekeeper’s Daughter” (Interscope) a title that you would expect from them is getting raves and calls everywhere it’s being played. Don’t be the last to jump on this red hot hit single. Are you ready to have some fun? Then you may want to join the party and support the band called Fun. They have a great new single called “We Are Young” that is out of this world. Watch for some “fun times ahead” for Fun. Their label mates ala Gym Class Heroes are also pulling in some rather impressive numbers. “Ass Back Home” (must be a love song) is their inspirational tale of love and warmth. We’ll see how this all plays out in the coming weeks. Hot Chelle Rae continues to win the hearts and minds of radio programmers from coast to coast. “ Like It Like That” (Jive/Zomba) is a song to sing around your campfire. Newcomer Holly Kay is off to a solid start at Top40. Her debut single “Let Go” (Roycroft) has been pulling in some crazy “most added” numbers and this young talent is the “one to watch” for 2012. Pitbull has teamed up what Chris Brown for a real loving single. “International Love” (J) is the jam that you ladies need to be carefully watching. Don’t get too close. “Love You Like A Love Song” (Hollywood) from Salina Gomez and the Scene is getting spins at the format. David Cook, your former American Idol winner, is still red hot with “Fade Into Me” (RCA/RLG). Recording artist Steve Northeast has been on a solid roll since week one of his single release. “You’re the One” (Tidal Records) is getting raves from many of our music and program directors and for good reason. Jason Mraz is back with “I Won’t Give Up” (Atlantic/WEA) and that’s always a good thing. Recording artist Emil has been “on fire” with his latest offering. “Since You Left” (Caper) is the track you need to power into “heavy”. Joey Canyon is making lots of great moves with his debut single “Lonely love” (GloDot) and Ron Gallucci has a solid debut hit on his hands with “Hollywood” (RGM). I’ll be back with more of your Top40 favorites - next time.

Colbie Caillat continues to work her brilliant magic at the AC format and our reporting stations all agree that she’s at her best here. “Favorite Song” (Universal Republic) is her latest and it’s yet another gem from this very talented lady. We’ve had the pleasure of covering her performances in the past and she’s excellent live. The future continues to be very bright for Colbie Caillat. John Mayer has always been a favorite here and he’s back at it with another solid single. “Shadow Days” (Columbia/Sony) a good story song is getting the nod from many of our reporting stations. “Part Of Me” (Capital) from Katy Perry is the “one to watch”. Everything she’s released has gone to #1 and we can probably expect the same thing here for this gem. Adele keeps the charts of the world alive and well with her solid “Set Fire To The Rain” (Columbia/Sony). She’s set for another banner year. Bruce Springsteen is back at it and in a very big way. His new “We Take Care Of Our Own” (Sony) another anthem from “the boss” is from his brand new #1 album. He’s also hitting the road and you’ll want to get a ticket for this amazing concert to be sure. Gavin Degraw is putting on his dancing shoes for “Dancing With the Stars”. He’s also pulling in some rather impressive action from our music and program directors for his new single “Sweeter” (RGA/RLG). There’s no telling just how he’ll survive this popular dance show but my guess is that it won’t be around too long. He’s a much better singer than dancer by a long shot. Train is back with a solid winner, and make no mistake about that. “Drive By” (Columbia/Sony) is their latest and it’s got some strong potential. Newcomer Holly Kay is off to a very strong start in her recording career. Her new single “Let Go” (Roycroft) has been at the top of our most added chart for several weeks and now the single is “on the move” on many of our charts. There’s a very bright future ahead for this amazing young talent. The band Neon Trees are getting some well-deserved action at the format. “Everybody Talks” (Mercury) is the song that is making it all happen for them. If you’re not on this one yet, what are you waiting for? Andy Grammer continues to win the hearts and minds of many at radio. His “Fine By Me” (S Curve/EMI) continues to work magic wherever it’s being spun. Nickelback has another winner on their hands. “Lullaby” (Roadrunner) is their latest and greatest and watch for some big weeks ahead for this one. Roberta Flack continues to get rave reviews for her comeback entry. “We Can Work It Out” (429) is the one that is bringing her back strong. Recording artist Steve Northeast is pulling some rather impressive numbers week after week. His debut single “You’re the One” (Tidal Records) has #1 written all over it and he’s already hit the top of the charts on the Independent Music Network’s Mainstream chart. Our good pal Adam Lambert is getting some solid spin action at radio. The American Idol “favorite” is fighting the good fight with “Better Than I Know Myself” (RCA/RLG). The Black Keys are still getting some solid spins for their new “Lonely Boy” (Nonesuch/Reprise). Ron Gallucci is making quite the name for himself at AC radio. His debut single “Hollywood” (RGM) has had solid action week after week and there appears to be no stopping this solid talent. Recording artist Joey Canyon is getting some rather impressive action for this debut single. “Lonely Love” (Glo-Dot) is the one that is breaking fast at multi-formats. If you don’t believe me, just look at this week’s charts. The Fray keeps getting raves for their single “Heartbeat” (Epic/Sony). Recording artist Emil has been “on fire” with his latest. “Since You Left” (Caper) is one its way to #1 and in record time. Your favorite AC Male Artist, Jimmy White, has had a stellar run with his “Hard Ride” (828) single & he’s also your “Favorite Male AC Artist”. His new single “Warm” is set for release next week and expect another #1 from him. I’ll have more for you on the greatest AC records of all time when we are back in-print.

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.

Pitbull releases Men In Black 3 theme track Latin superstar Pibull has recorded the theme song to Men In Black 3, titled ‘Back In Time’. Also, there’s a Men In Black 3. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones go back in time in the third installment of their alien-themed popcorn action franchise, so we can work out where Pitbull got his inspiration for the theme song. Actually, ‘Back In Time’ was a collaboration between Mr Armando Perez (that’s Pitbull) and Marc Kinchen, Adrian Trejo and Urales Vargas, and it features a sample of Mickey & Silvia’s 1950s hit ‘Love Is Strange’, so there’s some more inspiration. Apparently, director Barry Sonnenfeld’s 19-year-old daughter turned him on top Pitbull, and he said that the song shows that Pitbull ‘totally gets’ the movie. Pitbull himself said, ‘It’s an incredible honor to be a part of such an amazing franchise as Men in Black and I have so much respect for Will Smith, especially with our similar musical backgrounds. Wanting to keep the music fun yet modern, we used the slogan of the movie and flipped it back into the song that ‘in order to understand the future, you have to go back in time.’’ ‘Back In Time’ is out this March, and the men In Black 3 film will hit screens on May 24.

Adam Levine Vows To Curb Cursing

Adam Levine is introducing a new curse jar policy to The Voice because he has such a ‘dirty mouth’. The Maroon 5 rocker is one of the judges on the NMW - APRIL 6, 2012

American version of the talent show, alongside Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton. Adam is worried he might let slip a profanity when the live shows start next month, so has thought of a way to curb his swearing. ‘I have a dirty mouth,’ he explained to People. ‘I curse a lot and I want to try to contain that a little bit. ‘I’’ll have a little curse jar next to me. Every time we say a bad word, $100 goes to charity. It will help us, it really will. Because we’’ll end up giving a lot!’ Adam and Blake have become firm friends since they began work on the programme. Country star Blake is firmly behind Adam’s new plan as he thinks he could also benefit from some help when it comes to thinking before he speaks. ‘I like that. I’’m agreeing to it,’ Blake laughed. ‘I will sign up!’ Adam and Blake recently discussed how well they get on. They love teasing each other and enjoy seeing how can get the biggest rise out of the other. ‘It’’s fun. It’’s just like we’’re sitting around the bar, making jabs at each other,’ Blake laughed at the time.

Damon Albarn Reveals David Bowie & Ray Davies Collaboration

Damon Albarn has revealed that for a brief time, he was slated to record a collaboration with David Bowie and Ray Davies. The Blur and Gorillaz frontman is no stranger to working with stars, collaborating with Lou Reed, Snoop Dogg, Bobby Womack, De La Soul and more. But there was one collaboration that was only on the cards for a mere twenty-four hours. ‘I do genuinely like working with people but at the same time I don’t expect it to work, and there have been a lot of people who a lot of things don’t happen.’ Then he revealed, ‘I mean, for about 24 hours, many years ago, I was making a record with David Bowie and Ray Davies. But that only lasted 24 hours.’ One can only imagine what that would’ve sounded like. His most recent collaboration, with LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy and Outkast’s Andre 3000 will have to do.

Lenny Kravitz In Awe Of Jagger

Lenny Kravitz says listening to Sir Mick Jagger sing karaoke was the ‘best moment of [his] life’. The multi-award winning musician has never taken to the microphone to partake in the popular entertainment activity. Despite that, Lenny has described being blown away after hearing legendary performer Mick take to the stage while warming up his vocal cords. ‘I’ve never done karaoke. I’ve never done it. Isn’t that weird? I’ll tell you my favourite karaoke moment, which is not karaoke per se. I was on vacation with Mick Jagger once, several years ago. He was on a world tour. This is what we do. The throat is a muscle. So if you’re touring, you have to build up the strength

of your voice. Now all of a sudden if you have a month off and you don’t sing, that first show, you’re gonna not be happening. And you might get hoarse, and it f**ks up the whole next leg of the tour,’ he explained to Collider. ‘So you have to keep singing. We were having dinner and he said, ‘Lenny, excuse me, I’ll be back in about 45 minutes.’ So he goes downstairs and all of a sudden I’m hearing Brown Sugar. And I’m hearing Mick. ‘He had a band tape of Stones with no vocals that they would record at sound check, right? He’s doing Mick Jagger karaoke downstairs, and I’m listening to this. I was like, ‘This is the best moment of my life.’’ Lenny feels blessed by his accomplishments in the music industry. The singer-songwriter has revealed which awards stand out more than his others. ‘I’m proud of the four Grammys that I got in a row because no one has done that,’ he smiled. ‘It was four in a row for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance. And I think the record was two in a row.’

Robbie Looks To Buy Jackson Estate

Michael Jackson’s former home could be purchased by a UK pop star. The mansion where Michael died is

on the market with an asking price of $23 million. Take That star Robbie Williams has been spotted looking at the home as the first prospective buyer. ‘Our spies saw Robbie roll up to the house Thursday afternoon in his Range Rover,’ TMZ reported. Robbie has an estimated net worth of $149 million and owns a home in Beverly Hills which he bought for $16 million in 2008. He also purchased a house down the road to use as a soccer field. Representatives for the star declined to comment on whether he was making an offer on Michael’s house. Michael’s Holmby Hills home is 17,000 square feet with seven bedrooms and 13 bathrooms. The singer died in the bed at the home he rented from Hubert Guez, the CFO of Ed Hardy, in 2009. He died aged 50 of acute Propofol intoxication after suffering a cardiac arrest. The property went on sale last Monday with the realtor’s website describing it as the centrepiece of an “elegant and sophisticated French chateau estate’. It includes its own movie theatre, a gym, a pool and 12 working fireplaces. “The estate... offers a glamorous theatre for screenings in a grand style, a magnificent wine cellar and tasting room, elevator, a spacious spa with gym, and an elegant guesthouse,” as well as an “expansive pool and gardens,” the website stated. The contents of the home were sold at auction in December. The bed was not included in the sale at request of the late singer’s family. Michael’s doctor, Conrad Murray, is serving four years in prison after being convicted of involuntary manslaughter for administering the drugs that led to the star’s death.

Jessie J Reveals TV Show Nerves

Jessie J says being a judge The Voice is ‘very scary’. The British songstress appears on the UK version of the hit TV singing contest alongside will.i.am, Sir Tom Jones and The Script’s Danny O’’Donoghue. Jessie says although the process of being scrutinised in her new role is daunting, she is thrilled about working on the passion project. ‘It’’s very scary but very exciting. But you know what? I’’m just excited because I get to see a different side of things and people get to see me in a completely different scenario. I’’m not singing and it’’s not me doing a threeminute TV performance, so people get to see my personality and really see that I have a passion for what I do. That’’s what I’’m most excited about, people getting to see that I am a bit silly, make jokes and get told off,’ she explained in an interview with British newspaper The Sun. “But I’’m also a hard worker and care about technique and the artist, and I get very emotional.” The Voice has been compared to other hit talent shows including The X Factor and Britain’s Got on

Talent. However, Jessie thinks her show has the edge. ‘A lot of people were, like, ‘’Why aren’’t you doing Britain’’s Got Talent or The X Factor?’’ But I think it’’s really important in your career to pick things that really represent you as a person,’ she said. The 23-yearold star is in awe of her fellow judges and mentors. Jessie has recalled first meeting her co-stars for dinner, and finding the whole process very ‘surreal’. ‘I just started to talk, then I realised I really am like a big sponge that just soaks everything up, from being on the show to being around people like Tom,’ she recalled. “I remember him for Not Unusual and Sex Bomb but everyone knows who he is, even if you don’’t really know his music. He’’s just one of those names that’’s always been up there with, you know, UK talent. To hear him talking - ‘’Oh, when I was at Elvis Presley’’s house... ‘’ - it’’s not him just name-dropping, that’’s just him growing up and what happened. ‘All of us are learning from each other. It’’s very nice, very humbling, to be accepted by someone like Tom Jones and for him to go, ‘’Jessie, how do you think I should sing this bit?’ We all have really healthy debates.”

Conor Maynard Records With Pharrell Williams, Ludacris & Ne Yo

There’s no stopping nineteen yearold pop wünderkind Conor Maynard. Hot on the heels of his sold-out London show he flew to Miami to record with Pharrell Williams who was blown away by his talent, inviting a string of highprofile musicians into the studio to meet and collaborate with him including Tyler the Creator and Ludacris. And with word in the US spreading fast about Conor’s incredible musicianship and songwriting skills, instead of heading home he’s just been whisked off to Los Angeles to record with Ne-Yo, who was the first artist to spot his talent back in 2010 when Conor’s cover of his track ‘Beautiful Monster’ exploded over the internet. In the UK Conor has just hit the number one spot on Shazam’s pre-order chart and the video for his debut single has had more than 2 million views since it went live a fortnight ago. With playlist rotation across the nation’s airwaves, almost 200,000 Facebook fans and nearly 100,000 Twitter followers, Conor is fast becoming the hottest male singer in the UK... and he’s still three weeks away from even releasing a note.

Jack White Admits Pop Star Envy

Jack White often feels jealous of pop stars because they have things ‘so easy’. The rock star enjoys penning lyrics and giving riveting performances on stage, but admits he occasionally wonders if he’s made things too hard for himself. Jack likes to show the emotion in his songs when he sings, which can make things tiring. ‘If I go and see a band who are pop singers. and all they have to go out there and do is sing. Just hold the microphone and sing. There’s a part of me that’s so jealous of that, like, ‘God, it’s so easy.’ or like a Vegas show where they just go out and do the same thing every night and it’s like, ‘God, you’ve got it so easy,’’ he told NME. ‘But at the same time I would never not wanna have any challenge ahead of me.’ It’s important to Jack that he is always pushing boundaries. He can’t bear the thought of people finding his music boring, or saying it all sounds the same. ‘I think no matter where you are, you have to analyse what you’re doing, you’re environment,’ he said. ‘Especially as an artist, I don’t ever wanna stagnant and be still, I wanna constantly move forward.’

Nas vocalised ‘everything he had to say’ in his highly anticipated upcoming album. The hip-hop icon is preparing to debut his tenth solo studio album Life Is Good this year after being on hiatus since the release of his untitled 2008 record. Nas put his all into these songs, as he has amassed a lot to say over four years. ‘It’s been a long time, it’s been years since I released a solo studio album, so this record is everything,’ Nas told MTV News. ‘This is everything that I’ve got to say-I guess you’ve got to live a little and you put that in your music, so it’s coming from my life.’ Nas got really experimental with his production on this album and enjoyed creating new sounds with an assortment of musicians. ‘A lot of the tracks have [come from ideas] where I would take an idea from one of the guys that I’m working with and try to put it together with a different sound that I had in my head, or with someone else,’ Nas shared. ‘[I] just try to get people to collaborate who are not really used to working together and to get something different from me.’ Nas believes that listeners will appreciate his novel sounds. ‘It’s a summer album,’ Nas explained. ‘We’re gonna shoot the video for The Don and get ready for the next song that’s in the chamber. It ain’t gon’ stop. It’s a whole story. [The] Don just dropped [earlier this month], so we’re just letting that bubble and setting up the next one.” Nas’ new album Life Is Good is slated for release in June.

Aerosmith, America’s greatest rock and roll band, will start your summer sizzling and have you dancing around the fires of rock n’ roll again. After blowing away audiences in South America and Japan, the Bad Boys from Boston are back to rock America’s soul, with The Global Warming Tour playing 18 markets beginning on June 16 in Minneapolis, MN. “The old Aerosmith is back with a new vengeance and we will kick your ass and make out with yur mothers,” says Steven Tyler. Joe Perry adds, “Can’t wait to bring this band back home. It feels like we’ve been away too long.” Live Nation is the national tour promoter for Aerosmith’s North American tour. This summer’s hottest ticket will go on sale March 30 and 31 at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation. com. The first round of tour dates are below with additional dates for a second leg to be announced shortly. Beginning on Thursday, March 29, fans that visit www.livenation.com/aerosmith and RSVP to the presale will have early access to tickets. The band celebrated their fortieth anniversary in 2010 and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. This quintessential live act truly defined rock and roll as we know it, bringing their heart-pounding sound and millions of fans to their feet over the past four decades. Never succumbing to the trends and fads in music, Aerosmith blazes their own path and remains as ground-breaking as they were when they first formed in 1970. Bassist Tom Hamilton says, “After touring Japan and South America last year we’re psyched about bringing it all back for the hometown fans. We’re going to break out the classics, the hits and maybe even some of the new ones we’ve been banging out in the studio. Can’t wait to get to Minneapolis!” Aerosmith are a living piece of American music history, having sold over 150 million albums worldwide and been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They are the recipients of countless awards including four GRAMMYs, eight American Music Awards, six Billboard Awards and 12 MTV Video Music Awards among many other honors. Proving that they can cross genreboundaries with ease, these rock legends have even taken home a Soul Train Award for Best Rap Single for their remix of Run DMC’s “Walk This Way.” With scores of multi-platinum albums, Aerosmith continues to inspire generations to get their wings, get a grip and just push play. It is no wonder why they are one of the most beloved bands of all time. American rock band and musical institution Cheap Trick will open the announced shows. NMW - APRIL 6, 2012

Bobby Womack has been released from the hospital where he was being treated for pneumonia; however, he will have to undergo surgery for colon cancer “later this month.” Womack’s illness was revealed over the weekend by friend Bootsy Collins who wrote about both the pneumonia and cancer on his Facebook page. Because the information was made public, Womack’s people felt it was necessary to post an update on Bobby’s Facebook page: Because of stories circulating regarding the health of soul icon Bobby Womack, we felt it necessary to set the record straight. We’re pleased to let everyone know that Bobby was released from hospital yesterday afternoon following a successful recovery from pneumonia. Bobby has cancer and is scheduled to undergo surgery later this month. Bobby stated, ‘My family, friends and I are looking forward to a successful surgery and speedy recovery. I want to thank all of my fans for their prayers, love and well wishes. I look forward to seeing all of you on the road in support of my new release.’ Bobby Womack makes his return to the world of recorded music later this summer with a new Damon Albarn, Richard Russell and Bobby Womack produced album on XL Recordings titled The Bravest Man In The Universe.

Nick Jonas Open To Glee Offer

Nick Jonas would ‘definitely consider’ joining the cast of Glee. NMW - APRIL 6, 2012

Vol. 14 Issue 3

The 19-year-old Jonas Brothers star enjoys acting and is appearing in the Broadway show How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying. He has also been a guest character in the NBC TV show Smash. Nick has now revealed his plans to appear on the small screen again. ‘Definitely would consider it,’ he told MTV when asked whether he’d take on a role in Glee. ‘I feel like Smash is sort of my statement in that [TV] world, and I really enjoyed that experience. And if there was a Glee opportunity, I would be really open to it. There hasn’’t been yet, and that’’s cool. So it’’s all a matter if they wanted to have me. I’’d be totally open to it.’ Nick says the transition from singing to acting hasn’t been without its difficulties. The star has revealed a couple of embarrassing occurrences while performing. ‘Yes, there have been some funny moments. In my first week, I was still getting comfortable, obviously. On the last show of the week, I completely lost my place in the middle of one of my big lines and, luckily, a castmate helped me out ... but I completely lost it,’ he said. ‘A couple days later, too, one of the guys, there’’s this big dance number and they do this handstand thing, and he basically had so much momentum going forward that he flipped off the stage into the orchestra pit. And I’’m up on this top tier supposed to be watching a TV of what’’s happening. ‘It was crazy. He was OK, thankfully; it was pretty frightening.’

Capitol Nashville’s country foursome Little Big Town will be hitting the studio this week with new producer Jay Joyce (Eric Church/Wallflowers) to record their new album which will be the group’s fifth studio album.

Tracy Lawrence was named an honorary Operation Troop Aid board member after his performance to a packed house during the “Tracy Lawrence & Friends” OTA benefit concert at the Cadillac Ranch, in Nashville, TN.

Toby Keith is “back in the saddle” and make no mistake about that. His new “Beers Ago” (Show dog/Universal) was the #1 “most added” at Country last week and it’s already racing up our Country charts as radio really loves this single. The Band Perry is back with yet another winner. “Postcard From Paris” (Republic/Nashville) is yet another brilliant entry from this talented family act. Luke Bryan continues his winning ways at the format. He’s taking “Drunk On You” (Capitol) for a spin around the block and so far so very good. Glorianna is back with another very nice sounding record. “Good Night” (Emblem Music Group/WB) is the track that many of our music and program directors are raving about. Jason Aldean continues his “winning ways” at Country radio. His new hit single entitled “Fly Over States” (Broken Bow) is pulling in strong phones and the sales that are already “out of this world”. Carrie Underwood is making her American Idol family proud once again. “Good Girl” (Arista/RLG) is the one that is making it happen for her and this one is “red hot”. I also really love the new single from Eric Church. “Springsteen” (EMI) is really different and tells a tale that many can relate to. Josh Thompson appears to have a real winner on his hands. He proves it in every way as he takes flight with “Comin’ Around” (RCA/ RLG). Kix Brooks has his solo thing in fine form. “New To This Town” (Arista/RLG) may not really be a true statement from him but the song is getting some rather impressive action. “So You Don’t Have To Love My Anymore” (Capitol/EMI) by Alan Jackson is one of his best to date. Make sure to share some of his amazing talent with your listeners if you haven’t done so already. David Wood also has a good thing going at the format. His “My Dash” (Dew Note) is heading towards the top of our charts and in record time. Justin Haigh is a solid talent and make no mistake about that. His new single “People Like Me” (Apache Ranch) is a great song that deserves your immediate attention. Phil Vassar also has a cut that you should be spinning. “Don’t Miss Your Life” (Rodeowave) is a great track and just because he’s not on a major label doesn’t mean that he shouldn’t have another big hit single. Dustin Lynch is making some impressive moves at country radio. “CowboysAndAngels” (Broken Bow) is the latest and it’s really getting some raves from programmers and critics alike. “Glass” (Stoney Creek/Sony) from Thompson Square is another solid masterpiece. You may want to give that one a few spins around the block. Lathan Moore is also getting some love from the format for the single “Nothin’ Like A Woman” (Render). You will really love this record if you give it a shot. Rascal Flatts are back with a great new single in “Banjo” (Big Machine/ Universal). It’s another “winner” so take Big Machine to “dinner”. Joey Canyon is making quite the name for himself at Country radio. His new “Lonely Love” (GloDot) is really proving to be a solid Country favorite with a good many of our reporting stations. There is a very bright future ahead for Joey Canyon. The Zac Brown Band delivers top notch entertainment once again with “No Hurry” (Atlantic/WEA). Marty Raybon is back for sure with a brand new hit single. “I’ve Seen What He Can Do” (Rural Rhythm) is making magic everywhere it’s getting played. Erica Nicole just won Favorite New Country Artist for our New Music Awards. The timing is great as she also finds her “What You Think About Us” (Heaven) moving past the competition. That makes her producer Michael Lloyd a very happy guy. Tim McGraw may be back to getting things settled with Curb Records. He’s giving them a “goodbye” hit with “Better Than I Used To Be” (Curb). “Drink On It” (WB/ WEA) from Blake Shelton is a big hit and so is his show The Voice on NBC. “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” (Republic Nashville) from the Eli Young Band is a great track. Bobby Dean’s “White Lightning Or Pink Champagne” (Lamon) has been a proven hit. He also won Breakthrough Country Artist for the NMA’s. Kelly Parkes also tied in that category just as she takes her “Don’t Make Me” (Edge/LCR) to the top of the charts. Congrats to Taylor Made for their New Music Award. Look in our country section to see a note from them I’ll have more for you on the greatest Country hits next time right here my friends.

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

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

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

Country Date To Remember: February 11, 1962 Somewhere, around Fenton, Mo, there are some students who can say that they had one of music’s sexiest performers as a teacher. Sheryl Crow - long before she hit it big in 1993 with “All I Wanna Do,” was actually a music teacher at Kellison Elementary School. Though her teaching days in school are long over, Crow - who turns an amazing 50 years old today has educated many of her fans about some of Country Music’s greatest performers, such as Loretta, Hank, and Johnny Cash. Happy Birthday to one of Rock’s top women! NMW - APRIL 6, 2012

Dustin Lynch Sings for the ‘Angels’

70 miles separate Tullahoma, Tenn., from Music City. With that close proximity to Nashville, it’s no wonder that Broken Bow recording artist Dustin Lynch became so enamored with the sounds he was hearing on the radio growing up. “Nashville was obviously the big city for me growing up,” Lynch recalls to Billboard. “I can remember coming up here for the malls and the doctor’s appointments and the other big occasions. Each time I would see the skyline, there was just a feeling that would come over me -- ‘Man, I’m in Music City.’ It was always so exciting to be in Nashville.” He also recalls his first time going downtown. “My first time on Broadway, I drove myself up to see my first concert, the rock band Incubus. As many times as I’d gone to Nashville, I’d never gotten to go downtown. So, we rolled in with the windows down, and with all the people there and the music, I can never forget that moment.” The singer went on to say that even if you’re not into music in Middle Tennessee, it’s a definite part of the culture. “It’s something everyone from out of town thinks you’re a part of, even if you’re not. I can definitely see how it rubbed off of me at an early age,” he says. Lynch’s debut single, “Cowboys and Angels,” is quickly making an impact at radio stations across the country. He says it’s hard to believe the direction his career has taken. “It’s a dream come true,” he says. “I don’t know if it’s sunk in yet that I have a song on the radio. It’s a dream I’ve had for years.” True to the nature of the viral world we live in, his first time hearing a radio station play it was online. “I’m still waiting to hear it randomly. The first time I heard it, I knew it was going to come on -- so that took a little bit of the surprise factor off,” he says. “But, what was really cool about the first time was we were on the bus in Alabama with the record folks on the radio tour. WYCD in Detroit called and say that they were going to do a ‘New Music Spotlight’ at 1 o’clock. So y’all tune in. We turned it on and heard it streaming online on the bus. Just to hear it with the team that has been working so hard was really cool.” When asked about his heroes, Dustin mentioned two icons: Garth Brooks and Alan Jackson. “Garth is my hero,” he says. “I’ve been belting out Garth songs since I can remember. Alan is such a prolific songwriter, and has had so many hits over the years. Those two are my biggest influences.” Lynch definitely noticed how Brooks captivated his audiences - he was among them. “I think he’s universal to everybody. Just like with any music, there are people who don’t like him, but he appeals to the masses. Performance-wise, he owns the crowd like no one else on earth can,” Lynch says. “That’s what I was amazed with by him.” Though he is enjoying success as a singer, Lynch says he was initially bit by the songwriting bug. “A television channel was airing live rounds from the Bluebird on TV. I was watching that show with Dad, and I had just gotten where I could play and sing some. I didn’t realize that behind these Randy Travis songs, that there were really cool stories that the writers had. When I was 16, my parents let me come up here and play open mic at the Bluebird,” and from that point on, Lynch knew what he wanted to do. He’s very pleased to be associated with the staff at Broken Bow Records, which has become one of the top labels in town. “They’ve had a lot of success with Jason Aldean and Thompson Square, but the best part about them is that they are a family. Everyone cares about everybody, and that shows in the passion about my music. I’m excited to be a part of the team,” he says. Also a part of the team is producer Brett Beavers, who Lynch is very excited to be working with on his debut disc, set for release later in 2012. What are his thoughts on what he would like to accomplish this year with that album? He doesn’t miss a beat, saying “A few hits would be great, but just being able to do music would make me happy.” He says he’s staying out on the road meeting radio at a fast and furious clip, but there are no complaints. “You’re busy and everything, but I’m soaking it up, I promise. It’s not so overwhelming that I’m not smelling the roses as I pass them,” he says. NMW - APRIL 6, 2012

College is rocking strong here at New Music Weekly. We’re getting set for our next Future Hits compilation so if you know of any bands or solo artists that have a new single that need to go to “all of radio”, this is the one CD that you will want to be a part of. Give us a shout here and send us the information as you will finally get a shot at the big time. Last week’s Tonight Show with Jay Leno looked like a scene from The Hunger Games as sibling duo The Secret Sisters performed their captivating self-penned ballad, “Tomorrow Will Be Kinder,” that is featured on the film’s soundtrack, The Hunger Games: Songs From District 12 and Beyond. Click to view the full performance clip. Sisters Laura and Lydia Rogers wrote “Tomorrow Will Be Kinder” while on tour in Australia, and after T Bone Burnett, executive producer of The Hunger Games: Songs From District 12 and Beyond, heard it recorded he immediately knew it was a perfect fit for the soundtrack. “We were in Australia, and there, Lydia sat down and wrote the song. Even though it came from thinking about a really dark circumstance, it is about looking forward to better days. In that sense, it really ties into the characters’ experience in The Hunger Games,” Laura says. In support of the soundtrack, The Secret Sisters have garnered attention from Seventeen Magazine, The Hollywood Reporter and more, and Rolling Stone writer Steve Appleford says, “‘Tomorrow Will Be Kinder’ fits with the pure harmonies of bluegrass, folk, mid-Sixties pop and classic country on their debut. Multi-platinum rock band Nickelback will premiere two new music videos, one for “Lullaby” and one for “This Means War,” both songs are from their most recent and almost platinum album Here And Now. The video for “Lullaby” premieres exclusively on VH1.com. The video will also make its broadcast debut on VH1’s Top 20 Countdown this week. Additionally, the video for “This Means War” will premiere exclusively for 48-hours on the Xbox/Zune platform. Nickelback was recently nominated for four Juno Awards in their native Canada, including Group of the Year, Album of the Year for Here And Now, Single of the Year for “When We Stand Together” and the Juno Fan Choice Award. The band will perform on CTV’s broadcast of THE 2012 Juno Awards on Sunday. Denver emcee Sole has been defying genre conventions and pushing boundaries, both musically and visually, throughout his career and with his latest music video from his Sole and The Skyrider Band project titled, “DIY,” it’s easy to see why he’s a hip-hop legend. Set in a futuristic, corporate-controlled dystopian nightmare, the music video, directed by Alan August with a guest appearance from electronic artist Egadz, depicts Sole and his Skyrider Band mates attempting to break into a state propaganda building in order to spread an anti-state message. The video opens with a dictator making a speech to the citizens of this world, clad in all white and looking drained of any free will. When asked about the inspiration for the music video, Sole, who happens to be deeply involved with the Occupy Denver movement, said that he thinks the video speaks for itself, but did say this about the dictator character in the video, “the dictator looks a hell of a lot like Hickenlooper.” A reference to Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper with whom the Denver protesters have clashed with in the past. Sole has been on a creative streak the last several months releasing a stream of memorable video stunners from his Occupy Wall Street inspired “I Think I’m Ben Bernanke” to the CGI-heavy “Bad Captain Swag.”Sole has also just completed a documentary with radio personality Harry Archer called “Art Is War,” described as a film that questions the role of the artist in today’s society, and explores the concept of art being war, an individual’s mode of resistance against the powers that be. Sure to be both thought-provoking and provocative, the “Art Is War” DVD trailer is now up on SoleOne.org.
