NEW MUSIC AWARDS WINNERS It’s that time once a year when New Music Weekly pays tribute to the very best for 2018. Based on the activity from the previous year, we are thrilled to honor the music artists and industry professions along with radio stations and their programmers. Our New Music Awards has been a consistent part of our musical itinerary from our very first year as a publication. It was always our intention to include the leading independent artists and bands in the mix and this time out we feel we did our best to bring many of them to your attention. It was a bit of a long process and we did our best giving everyone a voice. The process of going from nominee to winner also gave us the opportunity to open it all up to the general public and to our subscribers. For several months we had an open ballot on the New Music Weekly website where by which people could make their pitch for the very best artists and bands that charted here at NMW. From that list of the top nominees our subscribers, programmers and the music fans had a helping hand in turning the nominations into wins by their votes and general polling. Once again it is important to note that winner or nominee, off of them made their mark in music history. In addition to recording artists and bands we also pay tribute to the radio stations, music and program directors and many leading industry professionals. They are the backbone of the music industry and without their involvement none of this would be possible. Without our amazing programmers that play the music and support the artists, we would not be able to really gage what is going on in the music industry. We applaud all of the programming nominees, radio stations and industry pros and we are now able to give a little bit extra by signaling out the winners in numerous categories. “Shape Of You” Ed Sheeran was lauded Top40 Single of the Year while Bruno Mars received the Male Artist of the Year. Also in the Top40 Award winners circle includes the fabulous Camila Cabello & America’s rising new band Portugal The Man. Newcomer Garrett Young wins Top40 New Artist of the Year as one of our first Independent artists for 2018. Many others were singled out as well in numerous categories. AC40 Single of the Year went to “Thunder” by the ever fabulous Imagine Dragons while Niall Horan picked up a well-deserved AC Male Artist of the Year award. Best Female Artist goes to Dua Lupa who has had a banner showing at radio so far. The New Artist of the Year was Rebel Hearts & Boyz Nite Out who have been at the #1 spot on our AC40 for a record number of week’s with “Baby Doll”. Country award leaders include Sam Hunt who’s had a very big year with his “Body Like A Back Road” for Best Country Single with Thomas Rhett & Maren Morris winning Artists of the Year awards. The Country New Artist of the Year goes to Indie leaders Al & Trey While Country Group of the Year goes to Midland, a band we first saw during last year’s CRS. Speaking of CRS, this issue is also serving as a Post CRS update with some photos and information about the 2018 grand event. New Music Weekly was “on sight” and kept a very watchful eye on the schedule that once again included the big New Faces show. This event always serves as the start to the Country music year and it did not disappoint in the least. For many artists and bands that want to have a shot at next year’s NMAs, now would be the time to plot your course. Once again New Music Weekly provides the very best and effective “tools of the trade” to help get you the attention that many of you so deserve. Our panel of radio stations and their programmers are totally open to new music and artists provided their music can be played on commercial radio. Our STS tracking system is there to help keep track of what’s going on at radio and to help “spread the word” the ads in each and every issue help the cause. Best of luck for next year.

Bobby Estell (aka Bobby Bones) was born in Hot Springs, Arkansas, to Pamela Hurt. Bobby began dreaming of a radio career around the age of 5 or 6. Bones grew up poor in a trailer park, and often viewed radio as a ticket out of poverty. Bones began his radio career at age 17 at the campus station of Henderson State University, KSWH-FM 91.1. He graduated with a B.A. in Radio/Television from Henderson in 2002. While still in college, Bones went to work as a station hand at KLAZ in Hot Springs, Arkansas, but was put on the air within a few days of being hired. A manager there gave him the choice of going on the air as Bobby Z or Bobby Bones. In 2002, Bones was hired by Q100/KQAR in Little Rock, Arkansas. While there, he broke into another radio station (KLAL), which led to his next job in Austin, Texas, to begin hosting The Bobby Bones Show on KHFI-FM. Bones’s first full-time radio contract paid him $17,000. While in Austin, he met two of his future co-hosts, Lunchbox (in a bar) and Amy (in a radio cohost contest after Jill left. Neither had radio experience when Bones put them on the air. His executive producer, Alayna, was previously an intern on the show. Over ten years, the show built its audience into the top-rated morning show in Austin and was syndicated in a few regional markets. At the height of his popularity, Bones was offered a job outside of radio but ultimately chose to remain with Clear Channel. In the fall of 2012, Clear Channel moved Bones and his show from Austin and its Top 40 format to Nashville and a country music format while taking The Bobby Bones Show nationwide. Bones took over the slot hosted by longtime DJ Gerry House, who retired in 2010. Bones now broadcasts from WSIX-FM in Nashville on weekday mornings from 5 to 10am. His co-hosts are Lunchbox and Amy, and features Ray, Eddie, Morgan, Mike D, and Morgan #2. Michael Bryan is the program director. The Bobby Bones Show has become a regular interview stop for top country music stars, including Luke Bryan, Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Lady Antebellum, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, and The Band Perry. On air, Bones and his cohosts break the country radio mold with a mix of pop-culture news and information. 3

Taylor Swift appears to be back on track after a few fumbles. She’s really hoping that with the release of the new “Delicate” (Big Machine/Universal) she can get back to having #1 singles. We’ll see how this all plays out but so far she’s doing better than expected. Also back with some rather impressive numbers is Shawn Mendes. His new and ever so powerful “In My Blood” (Island/UMG) is off like a rocket. Truly one of the best young male artists out at radio today, Shawn is showing a great many artists just how it’s done. The pairing of Logic & Marshmello is turning out to be a very good thing indeed. Together they have put it all on the line as the new single “Everyday” (DefJam/UMG) takes flight. You may want to save a little room on your playlist for this new winner. Another multi-pairing that appears to be working big time is that of Halsey joined by the strong Big Sean & Stefflon Don. This powerhouse triple team is out with the smash hit “Alone” (Astralwerks/Capitol) and there’s every indication that this could be very huge. The Chainsmokers are back at it and that is always a very good thing indeed. Many of our music and program directors are all over their new and magical “Everybody Hates Me” (Disruptor/Columbia) & you can bet that the numbers for this will turn out to be rather strong. Meghan Trainor is finally back at the format and it’s about time. After quite a long break she is taking the single “No Excuses” (Epic) out for a spin and so far it’s being met by some pretty stellar enthusiasm. Stay tuned on this one Bazzi has a good thing going and make no mistake about that. “Mine” (APG/Atlantic) is the track that is blowing out the numbers and calls. This one you really need to pay attention to and I don’t wanna have to tell you twice. 5 Seconds Of Summer are actually one of the best new bands out at radio today. They prove it again and again as their new and ever so powerful “Want You Back” (Capitol) makes some rather bold and beautiful moves. The pairing of Zedd with Maren Morris & Grey is pure magic. “The Middle” (Interscope) is fast becoming a solid pop anthem and the fact that Target has used it over a million times on their commercials, that really doesn’t hurt one bit. Kendrick Lamar “the great” and the ever popular (for the moment) Sza have a good thing going. Kendrick is on so many singles at radio that it’s really hard to keep track but for now the single to watch for includes the cut “All The Stars” (Top Dawg/Aftermath/Interscope) that is breaking fast. Why Don’t We by the fab “Trust Fund Baby” (Atlantic) is off like a rocket. Take a little time on this one to be sure. I’m also really loving the new Post Malone and Ty Dolla $ign called “Psycho” (Republic/Universal). This one has been building strong numbers and it’s now finally getting the attention that is so deserves. Also getting some well-deserved attention is the new and fabulous Camila Cabello with her best single to date in “Never Be The Same” (Syco Music/Epic). What a great song this is my friends. The Weeknd & (have I mentioned) Kendrick Lamar are getting raves and praise for their new offering that is “Pray For Me” (Top Dawg/Aftermath/ Interscope). This one has #1 written all over it but only time will tell as there are so many hot songs out there. Also getting some attention is the always fabulous Dua Lipa. Her new and ever so excellent IDGAF (WB/WEA) is so good that you can’t put it down. The red hot new band Barley Station is breaking fast at both Top40 and on our AC40 charts. They are quite the strong act and watch for some very big and better things ahead for them as their debut single “Younger Summer Memories” (Barleyfields) moves past the rest. Jack & Jack also have a monster hit with “Beg” (Republic) that is oh so good.

Niall Horan continues to be one of the most promising artists at the AC40 format. He’s come quite far as a solo artist from his One Direction days and his current single entitled “On The Loose” (Capitol) further showcases just how strong he’s becoming as an artist. AJR has teamed up with Rivers Cuomo for a single that really deserves your musical attention. “Sober Up” (S Curve/EMI) is the track that is fast becoming a solid favorite from our vast list of music and radio programmers. Keep this song on the short list for sure. Foster The People are making bold and beautiful moves at the format with a song that puts them back on track. “Sit Next To Me” (Columbia) is quite a great single for this format and it might be time to give this one a spin around the block. The pairing of the ever so talented Macklemore with the powerhouse that is Kesha, together these two top-notch artist are taking the single “Good Old Days” (Bendo/ WB) out and about. It’s fast becoming a strong and memorable radio anthem that should be around for a long tome to come. Imagine Dragons who continue to be one of the best pop bands on the planet are keeping their promise to release amazing music. Their latest offering to pop radio in the name of “Whatever It Takes” (KIDinaKORNER/Interscope) is once again proving to be another winner for this grand band. Echosmith are back at radio and that’s always a good thing. The family band outfit has so much talent that it’s almost overbearing. They put it all together quite well and attractive in the song “Over My Head” (WB/WEA). It might be tine for you to give this a shot at radio as your listeners will be happy you did. Maroon 5 continue their hit making ways and make no mistake about that. It doesn’t hurt that lead single Adam Levine is on the top rated The Voice (NBC) so when you see the single “Wait” (222/Interscope) moving to the top of the charts, please do not be surprised. Also back at it is the legendary U2. They are getting raves and praise as their red hot single “Get Out Of Your Own Way” (Interscope) takes flight. You can always count on a band like this to stand strong at multi-formats with no doubt more to come. The pairing of Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line have them making amazing music together and it appears to be yielding major benefits. “Meant To Be” (WB/WEA) is their track that is not only setting the pop world on fire, it’s also a big hit at Country as well. Another blockbuster pairing that also has a Country and Pop connection is the teaming of superstar Justin Timberlake with rising star Chris Stapleton. Together they are taking “Say Something” to the top of the charts and this one has #1 potential written all over it. Taylor Swift is finally back on track and make no mistake about that. “Delicate” (Big Machine/Universal) is her latest jam and it appears to be her strongest track in quite a while. Shawn Mendes is also back at the format and getting some major support from our panel of music and program directors. All of them are raving about his “In My Blood” (Island/UMG) single and that is a sign that there is something very special going on here. We’ll see how it all plays out in the coming weeks. Garrett Young who is a big NMA winner is moving to the top of the charts. His fast rising “My Oh My” (West Coast Collective) is doing so well that it makes him a contender for our next NMA Awards. John Ratliff and his band Receptacle who also picked up an NMA award are also closing in on the top spot with their strong “My Dear” (Ind) single. NMA winners Al & Trey are also getting some love and amazing attention for their new “Kings And Queens” (Tide Productions) single that is crossing over big time. Dianne Meinke who also picked up several NMA nominations is set for another #1 single as her latest “I’ll Be Here Waiting” (UVI Media Group) moves past the pack. This is our NMW Winners issue and you will find many messages in this magazine. I wish to congratulate all of the winners and nominees for their success. It appears that many of the independent artists that faired well have even more music that deserves praise and attention. We’ll see how this all plays out but so far it’s shaping up to be a best music year in 2018.

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

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

Pregnant Cardi B drops out of Wireless Festival Rapper Cardi B has followed Beyonce’s lead by pulling out of a major festival after revealing she’s pregnant. Beyonce ditched Coachella in California last year (17) after going public with the news she was expecting twins, and now organisers of Britain’s Wireless Festival have been left scrambling to find a replacement for the Bodak Yellow star following her weekend pregnancy confirmation. The rapper showed off her baby bump during a performance of her new song Be Careful on Saturday Night Live, and promptly axed her appearance at the event. The news doesn’t seem to have fazed Wireless Festival bosses, who quickly assured fans they have a replacement lined up. “Huge news over the weekend... Unfortunately this means she won’t be performing at Wireless this year,” they wrote on Instagram. An announcement about the line-up is expected on Thursday (12Apr18). Cardi’s big reveal wasn’t welcomed by everyone, with some trolls criticising her for the way she confirmed the baby news on TV and others taking aim at her for falling pregnant as her career takes off. “This is why I did not wanted to say nothing,” she snapped back in a nowdeleted Instagram Story post. “People be so thirsty to scrutinize and try to destroy something that it suppose to be a blessing.” Meanwhile, Beyonce will make up for her no-show at Coachella last year by headlining this year’s event over the next two weekends, alongside Eminem and The Weeknd. Wireless will still feature Cardi’s baby daddy Offset and his band Migos, DJ Khaled, Stormzy, J. Cole, Big Sean, and Post Malone.

Carrie Underwood to make stage return after fall injuries

Carrie Underwood will make her first public appearance since her face was stitched back together following a horror fall in November (17) at the Academy of Country Music Awards. The star, who suffered wrist and facial injuries, will make her return to the stage at the Las Vegas prizegiving on Sunday (15Apr18), when she’ll debut her new single. The Before He Cheats singer required over 40 stitches to her face following the fall at her home in Tennessee. Underwood recently shared a picture of herself in the studio and a photo of her first rehearsal since her accident, but there were no signs from the images that there are any lasting scars or marks from the accident. But the 35-year-old country star has

22

kept selfies and photos of herself to a minimum of late and still hasn’t bared her full face after warning fans she might not look the same the next time they see her. Carrie fell on the steps of her house in Nashville, Tennessee, breaking her wrist and injuring her face. “I’ll spare you the gruesome details, but when I came out of surgery the night of my fall, the doctor told (husband) Mike (Fisher) that he had put between 40 and 50 stitches in,” she told fans in January (18). More recently she assured followers that she was recovering but “not quite looking the same”. But Below Deck star Adrienne Gang told Carrie’s fans not to worry after posting a gym shot of herself with the singer a month after the accident, insisting, “she is adorable and so gracious...” The actress also claimed the singer looked “amazing”, adding she had “no clue” Underwood had been injured. Underwood joins a starstudded roster of performers for this year’s ACMs, which also includes Jason Aldean, Kelsea Ballerini, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Kelly Clarkson, and Little Big Town.

Ariana Grande to release first music since bombing

riana Grande is gearing up to drop her first new music since the Manchester terror attack. The singer was performing at the Manchester Arena last May (17) when a terrorist detonated a bomb claiming the lives of 22 innocent victims. According to editors at website Hitdailydouble.com, the 24-year-old is preparing to release her full length album since the tragedy occurred, with plans to debut the first song from her record on 27 April. Pharrell Williams, Max Martin and Savan Kotecha are all rumoured to have collaborated on Ariana’s latest work, which is said to be a deeply, personal collection of songs inspired by her life-changing experiences over the last two years. As a result, the One Last Time hitmaker has taken a step back from her social media accounts in recent months, in preparation for her re-entry into the spotlight. The Grammy award nominee gained huge respect for pulling together and performing at the One Love Manchester benefit concert just two weeks after the attack, which raised over $13 million (£9 million) for the victims, and featured performances from stars including Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry. More recently she performed at the recent March for Our Lives, a studentled demonstration in support of tighter gun control in March (18). “Thank you so much for fighting for change and for love and safety and for our future,” Ariana told

the crowd in Washington D.C. News of Ariana’s new music comes as the British city of Manchester prepares to commemorate the first anniversary of the Manchester Arena bombing on 22 May. A communal singalong and a projection of song lyrics will take place to honour the victims, in addition to a civic memorial service previously announced. “It is a fitting way for us to honour those who went full of joy to a music concert but never came back, or saw their lives changed forever,” said Manchester City Council leader Sir Richard Leese.

Cardi B’s sister accidentally hints pregnant rapper is having a girl

Cardi B’s sister has dropped a huge hint that the pregnant rapper is expecting a girl. The Bodak Yellow hitmaker debuted her baby bump in a white figurehugging dress when she performed on Saturday Night Live at the weekend (7-8Apr18), having previously denied all rumours that she and fiance Offset were expecting their first child. Though the couple have yet to share further details about Cardi’s pregnancy, her sister Hennessy Carolina hinted at the baby’s gender in a heartfelt Instagram post. “I’m going to be able to hold baby you and give her all the kisses and hugs!” she wrote in the caption of an image of Cardi, real name Belcalis Almanzar, from her SNL performance. “your pregnancy is mines (sic) we pregnant can’t believe we’re having a baby! I’m passing my daughter crown down hehehehe.” Fans quickly picked up on Hennessy’s feminine phrases, and having seemingly realised her mistake, Cardi’s sister altered the Instagram caption to omit any mentions of sex or gender from the text. The new version said: “I’m going to be able to hold ur baby and give the baby all the kisses and hugs! your pregnancy is mines (sic) we pregnant can’t believe we’re having a baby! hehehehe.” Hennessy also congratulated her “brother” Offset, real name Kiari Kendrell Cephus, and referred to herself as “Auntie hennny.” Cardi, 25, appeared to be relieved after sharing her pregnancy news with the world, and shared a video of herself coming offstage with a huge smile on her face, declaring “I’m finally free,” while the Migos rapper took to social media to thank the couple’s fans, writing: “Thank you for all of your support. We feel so blessed.” Celebrities including Rihanna and Remy Ma have also shared messages of congratulations, and Cardi, who on Friday (06Apr) dropped her debut album Invasion of Privacy, gushed: “The love I’m receiving is overwhelming!”

Alex Rodriguez didn’t recognise Jennifer Lopez when they first met

RHYE has shared an official remix of BLOOD track “Song ForYou” by Montreal based producer, Jacques Greene. “Song For You” (Jacques Greene Remix) is available to stream and download starting today.

Alex Rodriguez didn’t recognise Jennifer Lopez when they first met - because she was dressed as her Shades of Blue alter-ego. The baseball player has been dating the On The Floor hitmaker since early 2017, with their relationship apparently going from strength to strength. According to reports the couple are buying a million-dollar apartment in New York together and have even discussed marriage. However, during an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Monday (09Apr18), Alex admitted that the pair’s first meeting was anything but romantic - as he was left red-faced when he didn’t recognise the singer-and-actress because she was in costume filming scenes as detective Harlee Santos for her U.S. TV show. Telling host Ellen that he was struggling to find his car following a meeting in Los Angeles, Alex recalled: “Someone taps me on the shoulder, and I turn around and I do not recognise this person. And it’s Jennifer, but she’s dressed up as Harlee from Shades of Blue and she’s in her jeans and her big boots. And it took me about 4 or 5 seconds,” he laughed, before he finally realised, “’It’s Jennifer. ‘Oh my God, Jennifer, you look beautiful.’ I was so embarrassed and then I got a little nervous.” Jennifer, who shares mutual friends with the sportsman, then told Alex, “You have my number, reach out”, with Alex adding to Ellen: “And I went home that night and reached out.” However, Ellen questioned Alex’s retelling of the first time he met Jennifer, claiming she’d been told a different story by Jennifer. Her doubts led to Alex FaceTiming Jennifer on the show, with Ellen asking her: “Hey you know, He just told a totally different story. He said that you went up to him and not the way you told it.” When Jennifer insisted, “No. I went up to him and tapped him on the shoulder,” Ellen jokingly replied, “We’ll look at the tape, I don’t know.”

Black Eyed Peas star will.i.am is set to speak before graduates of the University of Southern California’s new arts programs. The musician will give the commencement speech to the first group of students to receive a degree from the Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology, and the Business of Innovation. The judge on the U.K. version of The Voice, born Williams James Adams Jr, currently runs various technology

companies - including the mobile record company Amuse and BEATS Electronics. In a statement, Erica Muhl, the dean and founding executive director of the USC program explained the reason the music mogul was chosen to speak at the school at the ceremony on 11 May (18). “will.i.am personifies the spirit of cross-disciplinary innovation and creativity, which is the essence of the academy. His drive to transform our world through his art, his support of groundbreaking technologies and his philanthropic pursuits make him qualified to guide our first graduating class as they begin their own, individual, creative journeys,” she said. Meanwhile, Chance the Rapper is to deliver the commencement address at New Orleans’ Dillard University on 12 May. Dillard President Dr. Walter M. Kimbrough cited the musician’s ability to speak so openly about the importance of faith while also delivering chart-topping music as one of the reasons he had sought him to appear on the campus for the past two years. “He’s not signed but a multiple Grammy winner,” Kimbrough said in a statement. “He’s the artist that your grandmother would love.” He also referenced Chance’s various philanthropic efforts, including the founding of nonprofit organisation SocialWorks, created to empower youth through the arts, education, and civic engagement, and his numerous campaigns to call an end to gun violence. “The activism is a bonus with Chance,” Kimbrough added. “I thought he made for a great commencement speaker because of his spirit of being entrepreneurial and authentic. But his civic engagement, including encouraging people to vote and willingness to speak out on issues, are just as paramount.”

I like to write sad songs. I like to listen to sad songs, so I want to sing y’all one,” she told the crowd. Fans also noticed the pair had not been active on each other’s social media - the last time Lambert posted about East was in January, while

the 29-year-old country singer hasn’t shared anything about the Tin Man hitmaker since November last year. The couple has been dating since late 2015, and East previously discussed the level of understanding they both had for each other. “There’s a true admiration there and a large level of understanding on both sides, for sure. It’s always difficult to be a travelling musician and still keep things together. Understanding is definitely a huge factor,” he told InStyle magazine. Lambert, who split from ex-husband Blake Shelton in July, 2015, called herself a “lucky girl” after enjoying date night at the Country Music Awards last year with her beau. The 34year-old country singer is set to hit the road with Little Big Town for The Bandwagon Tour, while East is on a promotional tour of the U.S. for his new album Encore.

JAY-Z still unhappy with final version of Young Forever

JAY-Z has never been happy with the way his 2009 track Young Forever turned out, even though it’s become a big hit. The platinum-certified song, which featured on his album The Blueprint 3, was a collaboration with singer Mr. Hudson and remains a fan favourite, with the hip-hop icon frequently choosing to close his live shows with the tune. However, JAY-Z, real name Shawn Carter, confesses he has mixed feelings about performing Young Forever, because the final cut didn’t turn out quite how he wanted it to. Discussing the craftmanship behind his recording process, he tells talk show host David Letterman, “Sometimes it happens immediately, sometimes songs happen in three minutes..., and then songs (like) Forever Young (sic) took me about a month to finish. “It’s like, ‘Man, I can never finish this song,’ and it never turned out the way I wanted it, and it went on to be a really successful song for me, but... it still bothers me that I didn’t finish it the way I wanted to.” Meanwhile, during the candid interview for Letterman’s new Netflix series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, JAY-Z reveals he developed his love of the English language as a young school student, thanks to the encouragement of his teacher Renee Lowden. “I had a sixth grade teacher, her name was Ms. Lowden, and I just loved the class so much,” he recalls. “I’d read the dictionary and just (because of) my love of words, I just connected with her.” He even briefly considered becoming an English teacher, because he thought it would earn him a decent living: “She took us to her house on a field trip, and she had (an) ice (maker) in the refrigerator way back when no one had it,” he smiles. “I thought, ‘Ah man, I might be an English teacher!’”

Carly Rae Jepsen wrote 100 songs for new album

Singer Carly Rae Jepsen is having a hard time choosing the best of the 100 songs she has written for her new album. The Call Me Maybe hitmaker hasn’t released a full album since her third studio effort, Emotion, reached fans in 2015, but devotees may have to wait longer than anticipated, because although she has plenty of material, Carly is struggling to decide what direction to go in with her fourth album. “I am still in the thick of it,” she tells People when asked if her new album will be released this year. “It’s definitely starting to take shape, but it’s always been my process to really write and experiment and allow myself to go in a bunch of different directions before I select the songs that seem to be sticking out the best or seem to be connecting with not just me, but my bandmates and my family and friends.” Carly performed on a Carnival Cruise as part of the Carnival LIVE Concert Series in February (18) and she used the trip to pick and choose NMW - APRIL 13, 2018

which tracks should make the album. “Late night on the ship’s deck... after the show we went and sat out on the patio, and the boys and I went through a listening party of something like 100 songs - to start to narrow down our favourites,” she recalls. “I find them to be extremely helpful in that because it’s hard to have perspective when you’ve just been in the studio for so long and working so hard with it; it’s great to have friends who care and are invested enough to give their opinions and help narrow it down.” Meanwhile, fans are still raving about Carly’s appearance on Charli XCX’s song Backseat and the Canadian singer couldn’t be happier about the collaboration, admitting she has harboured a huge “creative crush” on the British songwriter for years. “Everyone that we knew that had written with both of us was kind of urging us together at some point because they thought a collaboration made a lot of sense,” she smiles, revealing the song only took a week to create. “It was a really rushed but exciting project!” Carly gushes.

Justin Bieber and Travis Barker defending Conor McGregor

Justin Bieber and Travis Barker have defended former UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) fighter Conor McGregor after he was arrested in New York. The 29-year-old Irishman was released on bail after being charged with assault and criminal mischief on Friday (06Apr18). McGregor and fellow fighter Artem Lobov were accompanied by more than a “dozen individuals” when they allegedly attacked a bus containing rival fighters at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, according to the UFC. He turned himself into police custody and appeared Brooklyn Criminal Court, with bail set for $50,000. The former two-weight champion has not yet entered a plea and his next hearing is on 14 June (18). Video footage appears to show McGregor throwing a trolley at the bus - smashing a window - followed by further altercations. Three fighters were reportedly injured in the fracas, according to TMZ.com. Despite the controversy over the violent incident, Justin Bieber has come to the defence of the Irishman. “I think Conor will be fine,” he told a reporter as he left a gym in Beverly Hills. “We all make mistakes.” And Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker also defended McGregor, and claimed the former UFC fighter got involved in the fight after Lobov was allegedly assaulted by a rival fighter at a hotel earlier in the week. “It was insane, in a good and bad way,” Barker said of the incident. “I mean, I love him (McGregor). I love him to death. I would’ve probably done the same thing if someone punked one of my friends, or my son, or my daughter. “But it’s unfortunate that other fighters got hurt, and he got as violent as he did... it’s a shame other people had to be involved. Crazy motherf**ker,” he joked to the TMZ reporter. “I love him - I can’t agree with everything he did, but I don’t think everything he did was right. Conor is a crazy b**tard,” the self-confessed UFC super-fan added.

She followed it up with another Boomerang clip showing her wearing a T-shirt and revealing shorts and wiggling her butt in the mirror of her closet. “Cellulite and yet I still love myself,” she wrote, before explaining that the cellulite wasn’t particularly visible in the clip. “The boomerang smoothed out my legs. The point is, I have cellulite just like the other 93 per cent of women do. What you see on Instagram isn’t always what it seems to be. Let’s embrace our real selves. #iloveme,” she wrote. She finished the series with a full body snap and added, “No thigh gap for me and yet I still love myself.” The 25-year-old, who has battled addiction, bulimia, and self-harm, has been very open about her past struggles with body image and self-esteem, and explained to Dr. Phil McGraw on his TV show that she now turns these negative thoughts into positive affirmations. “When I look in the mirror and I see something that I don’t like, I change that thought instantly into a self-affirmation where

George Michael’s belongings to be repossessed over unpaid bill

George Michael’s belongings are to be repossessed as his partner Fadi Fawaz has failed to pay off a $720 bill. Fadi Fawaz, 44, found the Careless Whisper singer dead in his bed at their home in Oxfordshire, England in December 2016. He is now living in another of George’s properties in Regent’s Park, London where he received an enforcement notice stating he owes $720. According to The Sun, the former hairdresser posted a picture of the notice demanding payment on Twitter, before deleting the tweet as it revealed his address. He captioned the image, “Darling they have come to take your furniture coz I couldn’t effort the fine. But don’t worry I didn’t open the door for them. (sic). The letter, dated 29 March, which demanded that Fadi pay up immediately or he will lose his personal items, appeared to relate to a traffic offence, as the debt type was listed as a ‘TFL (Transport for London) red route’. “Despite previous attempts at contact, this debt remains outstanding,” the debt enforcement notice reads. “Unless FULL PAYMENT is made immediately your goods could be removed and sold at public auction. If payment or contact is not received our Enforcement Agent will return at the time stipulated below.” Ominously, it also stated “There will be no further warnings”. George passed away from natural causes on Christmas Day, 2016 at the age of just 53. A postmortem revealed he had been suffering from heart disease and a fatty liver. As he found George’s body, Fadi was questioned by police officers for five hours and was forced to deny media reports that he was under suspicion over the former Wham! star’s death. After the coroner announced his verdict that George’s

death was not suspicious, Fadi took to Twitter to denounce media reports which had claimed otherwise. “F**K YOU,” he wrote, before captioning a picture of himself LABEL beside George with the words, “The Truth is out...”

Nicki Minaj announces comeback singles after lengthy hiatus

Nicki Minaj has returned to the music scene with two comeback singles, after sparking concern with months of silence on her social media pages. The 35-year-old took to Twitter to reveal that the two tracks, entitled Barbie Tingz and Chun-Li, will premiere at 10am Pacific Standard Time on Thursday (12Apr18). She also shared the covers for the singles, with the Barbie Tingz picture showing her wearing a Renaissance-style dress while standing with similarlyattired women in creepy masks. The Chun-Li cover, meanwhile, showed Nicki wearing a Fendi fur jacket and matching thong, while sitting with her legs astride a chair.

GODSMACK premiered the official music video for “Bulletproof,” the lead single from the multi-platinum band’s upcoming WHEN LEGENDS RISE album that’s due out April 27 via BMG. Directed by filmmaker Troy Smith, the satirical clip documents the band’s quest to make a new video. In the video, GODSMACK’s manager--played by actual manager, Paul Geary--suggests that it’s time for the band to expand their fan base by working with new (and clueless) video directors, including one played by Sebastian Bach and another by Billy Ray Cyrus. After being pitched a host of awful ideas, Sully Erna decides to hire his cousin, Salvatore Pasquale from Sicily, Italy. Everything hilariously goes wrong at the shoot, climaxing with the set catching fire and, ultimately, the destruction of the video files.

Abramorama announced today a deal with Apple Corps Ltd. and Universal Music Group (UMG) to theatrically release The Beatles’ classic 1968 animated feature film, Yellow Submarine, across North America this July in celebration of its 50th anniversary. Abramorama, Apple Corps Ltd. and UMG have teamed to give Beatles fans of all ages the opportunity to come together and share in this visually stunning movie and soundtrack. Abramorama originally partnered with Apple Corps, Imagine Entertainment, White Horse Pictures, StudioCanal and UMG’s Polygram Entertainment on the Ron Howard documentary The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years.

Thomas Rhett has announced his autobiographical anthem “Life Changes,” the title-track from his Billboard 200 chart-topping album (The Valory Music Co.), as his next single. “One of his most personal to date” (Rolling Stone), the song co-written by Thomas Rhett ships to Country radio today, following all three of LIFE CHANGES’ singles – PLATINUM-certified “Craving You” and “Marry Me” as well as GOLD-certified “Unforgettable” – which all earned chart-topping success. “This song is basically my autobiography in three minutes,” Thomas Rhett said. “It covers my college years, marrying Lauren, becoming a dad and the evolution of my music career. 27

Jake Owen has been building a strong story at Country and he continues strong again in 2018. “I Was Jack” (Big Loud) is his latest and it’s getting a big thumbs up from our panel of music and program directors. I think it’s one of his best so far. Also getting back in the saddle so to speak is Cole Swindell. His new and ever powerful “Break Up In The End” (WB/WEA) is pulling in some rather impressive numbers. We will see how this all plays out in the coming weeks but so far so very good for Cole. Kelsea Ballerini continues to be one of the top female country artists around these days. She proves it once again as she takes “I Hate Love Songs” (Black River Entertainment) for a spin around the block. The early numbers for this one are quite staggering. I’m also really loving the new Morgan Evans single. Everybody appears to be raving about the strong and ever so catchy “Kiss Somebody” (WB/WEA). You may want to save a little room on your music playlist and your listeners will be quite appreciative. Newcomer Jackson Michelson is making quite a name at the Country format. Many are raving about the single “Rollin’” (Curb) and for a very good reason, it’s really deserving of your love and attention. I’m also happy to see that Trent Harmon is back at the format. We first caught a glimpse of Trent at last year’s CRS and it’s so good to see that he’s finally getting the attention he deserves. This former American Idol star is taking the single “You Got ‘Em All” (Big Machine/Universal) out and about and this one is a real winner. Lucas Hoge also has a single out at Country that needs your consideration. It’s entitled the “Power Of Garth” (Forge Entertainment) and what a great song this is. It’s a story that should be shared and enjoyed by all. It’s always good to see Alan Jackson back on the charts. Once considered the “king of Country”, he’s back with a little ditty called “The Older I Get” (ACR/EMI Nashville) and make sure you get some spins going for this gem. Recording artist Chloe Collins is pulling in some good action for a brand new release. “Downpour” (CollinsHouse Music) is the title and be on the watch for this one. The fabulous duo Al & Trey are pulling in some rather impressive numbers for their latest smash in “Kings & Queens” (Tide Productions). They have also been lauded at Favorite New Country Artists for this year’s New Music Awards so a big congratulations to this powerhouse team of talent. Keeper Of The Plains is putting it all on the line as they take the single “Keep On Rollin” (Barfrog Music) out for a spin around the block. Dennis Ledbetter is making quite the name for himself. He’s out and about with the new track “Motel Blues” (Saint And Sinners) and it is getting a major early buzz. Also getting lots of love at the format is James Manning. The single “Turn It Up” (Ind) appears to be well on it’s way so you might want to help it out just a bit. Matt Hundley is also picking up some early believers. It’s all due to the single “Drinking Alone” (Melody) and nobody wants to have to do that. James Dupre is taking no prisoners but he’ll take a hit when he has the chance. Many of you are loving the new “Hurts Good” (Purfectt Pitch) and why not - it’s the real deal. You also may want to spend some time with Zach Janson. The single is called “More Of That” (Nashville Nightlife) and it’s a real delight to be sure. Recording artist and solid professional Jon Wolfe has a good thing going and wants the entire music world to know. “Any Night In Texas” (Lone Tree Music) is the new jam from him and it’s really worth some spin action. As many of you know by now this issue honors the winners for our annual New Music Awards. Many of the artists in this issue deserve some applause and attention. I want to personally congratulate all of the winners and nominees. If you happen to be in the Nashville area come visit me a Legends Corner and let’s have beer and sing a song two. I look forward to giving you more useful information about all of the biggest Country hits next time for a very special Indie Artists Issue. Peace out.

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 - APRIL 13, 2018

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