CMA FESTIVAL TIME

Where Artists Meet the Fans

It’s that time once again for the always amazing CMA Festival. For those of you that are viewing this publication for the first time – welcome to the family. New Music Weekly has been a part of what we call a “new music revolution” and has been going strong since 1999. In fact as the music industry has suffered from cutbacks and consolidations, our publication has only grown stronger each and every year. As many artists, bands and labels come to grips with the fact that the major labels don’t actually hold all the cards, NMW provides a voice for both in the major and independent arena. In our world all stations are treated as equals regardless of market size and all of our artists get top priority here. No one treats their fans better than Country artists. With this “fan faire” event there is really nothing like that in radio today. You don’t find pop artists setting aside a weekend to meet and great fans. It’s a way of giving back to all of those in support of artists and groups and the event has been proven a winner time and again. This event has become so pivotal that you can now see all of the top name acts in the industry taking part in this weekend celebration. Through this extravaganza our New Music Weekly cameras will be rolling and we hope to bring you some cool shots of all the action in up and coming issues. The music year seems to start on the right foot with the Country Radio Seminar (CRS). It was during our first times there we got a real glimpse into what Country artists are all about. Some of us remember a tall guy in a ten gallon hat being one of the first for an interview. He was so shy we could barely get many words out of him. We were impressed to find out that he was just signed to Warner Brother Records and it was only years later that we realized that Blake Shelton shared some special times with us during our visit at that event. Not only do major artists get the chance to show their stuff off at CMA, but a good many of the independent artists get to shine as well. Nashville comes alive every evening with some of the best music on the planet, most of it coming from the small clubs from Tooties to the Doc Hollidays. Even some of the major stars can be seen sitting in and becoming part of the music landscape. We’ve witnessed some amazing get-togethers in these small honky-tonks and the spirit and excitement of what music is all about is revealed during these times. I’m sure many of you in the Music City area can tell of your own sightings. One of the things that we have come to realize about this and other events in Nashville is that this town and it’s people “love to rock”. Some of the events around town come off more like a rock concert than anything else. For our mainstream friends, artists and bands, you are well represented. Many artists are influenced by the rock/pop culture and even today’s Country music sounds more aggressive and as powerful as any rockers out there. You can see it in the visits from the likes of Kid Rock to Sammy Hagar. Even pop super stars from Sheryl Crow to former Hootie and the Blowfish lead singer Darius Rucker have bridged that gap from pop to Country. It’s all becoming one big happy musical family. New Music Weekly continues to offer the best “tools of the trade” for labels, artists and bands. Each week our radio charts provide the information combining both major and independent artists that truly make up what the music industry is today. Through print and our massive on-line delivery system the work is getting out to the masses and industry professionals are watching all of your moves and activity. We will continue to provide all of the elements to help your favorite artists or band get to the top of the charts.

Andrew Heller got his start early by placing first in the New York Young Artist Metropolitan Opera Auditions and was mentored by Leonard Bernstein and the director of The Long School of the Metropolitan Opera. As a soloist, Heller performed many lead roles in New York at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Marble Collegiate Church, and summer stock throughout the East Coast. Andrew sang with Lisa Minnelli at all the High School musicals at Scarsdale High. Heller put his professional singing career aside to pursue advanced degrees in science and mathematics, and began a prolific scientific career at IBM. He quickly rose to the position of President of IBM’s Independent Business Unit, where he supervised the creation of IBM’s leading edge version of the UNIX. Heller is the youngest person ever to be named an IBM Fellow, a lifelong honor. His music career also began to flourish with concert appearances including the 2009 Presidential Inaugural Ball at The Corcoran Gallery of Art, Hofstra University’s Tribute to Songwriter Ervin Drake among others. Heller has released eight CD’s, and since 2008, he has had 10 songs make the Top 10. He also landed in the Top 15 on the national music charts with over 20 different recordings. His popularity as a concert and recording artist has continued to grow each year. In addition to his concert calendar, he is a frequent guest of radio DJ’s nationwide, and was featured on Fox News Network’s Strategy Room. Andrew Heller and his wife MaryAnn Heller reside in Austin, Texas. Andrew currently releases his music through DiamonDisc Records, a label which distributes not only Heller’s catalog but a collection of select recordings by Charlie McCoy, Willie Nelson and Don Cherry, and the late Boots Randolph. 3

Shakira has been making the most of her recent power as judge of The Voice (NBC). This is really helping her recording career in a big way just as “Empire” (RCA/RLG) gets released into the market place. Pharrell Williams is also back at it for more Top40 activity. He’s pulling out all of the stops once again with his new “Come Get It Bae” (Columbia/Sony) track. I also love the new pairing of Jason Derulo and the infamous Snoop Dogg. Together these two music powerhouses are taking the single “Wiggle” (Beluga Heights/WB) out for a spin and it’s getting rave reviews. Just ask any of our music and program directors and they will tell you just how good this track really is. We’re been getting some stellar reports regarding the act known as My Crazy Girlfriend. Word has it that their single “Crazy Stupid Love” (Capitol) is pulling in record phones and why not – it’s just that good. Afrojack has been proclaimed one of the highest paid DJ mixers on planet earth earning ½ a million just for showing up at a club. He’s taking the track entitled “Ten Feet Tall” (Island) out and about and this one could add some extra dollars to his already high price tag. After checking this guy out I really think that I’m in the wrong business. Let me get back into spinning those records. Chromeo is taking the music world by storm as well. All bets are on that the single “Jealous” (Big Beat/Atlantic) becomes a super big hit in record time. You might need to pay some extra special attention to this gem. Also getting in on the action is Bleachers. Their offering of “I Wanna Get Better” (RCA/RLG) proves that all it takes is a clever idea and you can have a huge hit record. One Direction is back and that’s always a good thing for radio these days. Simon Cowell and the band are taking the single “You And I” (Syco/Columbia) out for a drive and the fans are going crazy once again. Don’t count on a new One Direction movie any time soon as Simon as put a freeze on the notion for now. Recording artist Sam Smith is taking the Top40 and AC world by storm. His new raging single “Stay With Me” (Capp) is the talk of the music industry. You can expect some huge weeks ahead for this amazing vocalist and what a song this is my friends. Newcomer Jennifer Ashley is getting quite a lot of love from our panel. Her single “Back Where We Started” (SNMG/RED) ranked at the top of our “most added” list for a few weeks and the spins are now out of control. You can expect this track to reach the top of our charts and in record time. Please remember that you heard about Jennifer Ashley first right here on the pages of your favorite New Music Weekly magazine. Ed Sheeran has a good thing going at Top40 radio and make no mistake about that. His current single “Sing” (Atlantic/WEA) proves that it was a very smart move to spend some time with Taylor Swift in making better connections. Opening her big Red tour didn’t hurt a bit either. Phillip Phillips keeps making his American Idol family proud. The single “Raging Fire” (19/Interscope) is turning into quite the hit for him. He recently performed it on the American Idol finally and that helped quite a bit. His Dream Of Lions is a band to watch closely. Their debut single “Novel” (Droggmore) has been rocking strong since it first came out last month. Recording artist Benzo is also making huge waves at the format with “Heart Beat” (New Terra). One of our favorite new bands in Bad Mary is showing us how it’s done as “Better Days” (Dead Pill) moves past the rest. John Legend continues to work his magic with “All Of Me” (Columbia/Sony) taking on multiple mixes. Newcomer Abigail Duhon is breaking fast and furious with her stellar “ “La La La” (iShine/Sony). Marsha Jewell continues her #1 ways with “Butterfly” (Jewell Lane) just as a new single gets set to drop. I’ll be back with more gems from the Top40 world next time right here.

Michael Jackson has come to life and decided to join Justin Timberlake for the trip back. The two make beautiful and earthly music together in “Love Never Felt So Good” (Epic/Sony). Our music and program directors just can’t seem to get enough of this single. Ariana Grande is fast becoming the hottest female at radio the days. She pleads her case further as the track “Problem” (Universal Republic) begins pulling in some rather dramatic numbers. Paramore are having quite the run these days. Everybody (including me) is just loving their “Ain’t it Fun” (Fueled By Ramen). It’s a rather sarcastic offering that has all the chart power of a music anthem leading right into Summer. Colbie Caillat is back at it and that is always a good for AC radio. “Hold On” (Universal/UMG) is her latest and this one could move her to greater heights provided the label makes it a priority. She has a lot of competition however with the ever powerful and strong Katy Perry. “Birthday” (Capitol) is Katy’s latest and this one is pulling in the spins like there’s no tomorrow. She appears to have yet another big winner on her hands. Also make sure you check out the latest from Andy Grammer. He’s one of the best kept secrets at radio and that could all change with the release of “Back Home” (S Curve/EMI). Newcomer Jennifer Ashley is making quite the name for herself at radio. Her single release of “Back Where We Started” (SNMG/RED) is being greeted with open arms and for good reason, it’s just that good. The group Kongos are also causing quite a commotion at radio. “Come With Me Now” (Epic/Sony) is their latest and the response for this track according to our radio panel has been overwhelming. ZZ Ward has an excellent single out at radio. “Last Love Song” (Hollywood) is the one that everybody seems to be talking about. We’ll see how it all plays out in the coming weeks but so far so very good. Sam Smith is setting the music world on fire. It’s all thanks to the single “Stay With Me” (Capp) that is brilliant. MacLear & Quinn continue their winning ways as their “Only One For Me” (Meg) moves ahead of the pack. British recording artist Ed Barker who teamed up with Lance Ellington for the song “When You Smile” (EBR) is headed right where it belongs – to the top of the charts. It’s the perfect Spring into Summer smash. Newcomer Giulia Nahmany is set to break “big time” at radio. Her debut single “Girl To Change Your World” (Goldline Records) is the end title in the new Michael Damian directed “Love By Design” set for release soon. This young lady shines with a powerful vocal performance for a release that is just in time for Summer. Radio will be thrilled to have a new “top of the hour” song to help brighten their playlist. Recording artist Benzo has a big story in the works. His debut single “Heart Beat” (New Terra) is the gem that everybody is talking about. This is a very talented guy that is also set to release a brilliant EP in the coming weeks. We’ll keep you apprised of all of his actions right here in this very column. Are you ready for the Naked Cowgirl? Well she’s ready for you as her debut single “He Taught Me How 2 Love” (Sexy Records) gets set to take flight. Marsha Jewell has been at #1 with her stellar “Butterfly” (Jewell Lane) for a number of weeks. She’s set to release “Tomorrow” from her “I Love ” CD and the world is excited. Bad Mary continues their winning ways as their debut single. “Better Days” (Dead Pill) is such a bright time for radio and it continues to move at a very rapid pace towards the top of our chart. I’ll have more on the best of this grand AC format next time right here. To our CMA Festival friends, we’re so thrilled to have you here for all of this great music action.

Dream Wrangler Meredith Day Introduces Teen Singer Autumn Sky Wolfe For decades Talent Scout and Developer Meredith Day has been well known for having great ÒEarsÓ. She discusses some favorite projects including her newest Teen Singer: IÕve been blessed with great projects including Animal Bag, Margo Harshman, Adrianna Le—n and Halfway Band. My job is to hear their dreams and put them on a path to achieve it. Each project is different. I provide the tools, enabling them for success. Animal Bag came to LA to get signed at the tail end of the glam band era. Commonly selling bars out of beer with all originals in their hometown of Charlotte NC, they couldnÕt get a gig in Hollywood due to Òlack of imageÓ. Their talent and music completely blew me away and I took them on. I put them up over the radar and they were signed to Steve Moir Music Management and Mercury Polygram Records. Margo Harshman dreamed of acting. I developed her, and she debuted as Shia LabeoufÕs girlfriend ÒTawny DeanÓ on DisneyÕs ÒEven StevensÓ. SheÕs seen on ÒBig Bang TheoryÓ and the upcoming ÒMentryvilleÓ. She records and regularly performs her original music with Loren Frost.

Adrianna (AKA Adrianne) Le—nÕs big dream was to be Òon a soapÓ. I found her scouting David and Ann SchulzÕs Star Theatre Company in Oceanside Ca. Same place I discovered Margo. I helped Adrianna place her music on ÒGeneral HospitalÓ which led to her Emmy Nominated role of Brook Lynn Ashton and then Colleen Carlton on ÒThe Young And The RestlessÓ as well as her own music project ÒCaught CrimsonÓ.

I heard ÒHalfway BandÓ AKA ÒHalfway DecentÓ music in a gas station in Orange County. They were already making great money playing biker bars and Òkegger partiesÓ. After development the band won 4th place over 400 bands in KROQÕs 2012 CaboWabo Band Competition with their great original song ÒThe BirdÓ. Currently they are getting ready for their 3rd summer DIY tour. Their video ÒAbstract ArtÓ won Best YouTube.com 3D Video in 2012. They are currently interviewing sponsors for their 2014 tour. Teen singer Autumn Sky Wolfe has been my most amazing find to date. I overheard her singing in a hallway, a raw voice with tons of wonderful potential. I took her on. I felt she could be a significant performer. She reminded me of myself at her age. Big dreams. Autumn has a silver bullet that is very rare in live performers. She has ABSOLUTELY NO STAGE FRIGHT. I have seen her perform shows when everything was crashing around her and she doesnÕt miss a beat. Amazing. Autumn has released her first DIY single and EP titled ÒFire And IceÓ, currently available on iTunes etcÉ romantic POP Ballads. The cd includes a wonderful duet with Lenny KravitzÕs drummer Franklin Vanderbilt, ÒComplicated EyesÓ. I feel Autumn should be a real inspiration to any kid with a big dream! We are shopping for more original music for Autumn. For Info. contact Meredith Day through www.NationalTalentDevelopment.com ����������������������������������� NMW - MAY 30, 2014

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.

MUSIC BIZ Jason Mraz Unveils New Album Grammy award winning singer/ songwriter Jason Mraz has announced details of his much-anticipated new album. YES! will be released via Atlantic Records on 14 July. You can listen to the lead single ‘Love Someone’ which is out on 30 June below. Additionally, Jason will be releasing live video performances, ‘Live from the Om Studio at Mraz Organics’ Avocado Ranch,’ directly on his Facebook page to accompany tracks that will be unveiled every Monday. Jason Mraz’s fifth studio release, YES! sees the San Diego-based troubadour teaming up with his longtime friends and collaborators, Raining Jane, for a purely acoustic and more intimate sound than heard on his previous releases. YES! was produced by Mraz along with Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, First Aid Kit, Rilo Kiley), was recorded in rural Omaha, Nebraska and inland Oceanside, California. While somewhat intimate and esoteric, YES! still remains a Mraz-like pop album and features classical instruments, cello, sitar and vintage guitars and sings about universal themes of love, faith, healing, environmental stewardship and inner peace. Jason will be announcing his YES! world tour dates in June. The tour will kick off the U.S. in August with Europe planned for September, Asia and Australia later in 2014 and South America in 2015.

Taylor Swift Apologises To Thai Fans Taylor Swift is “so sad” her Thailand concert has been cancelled. The singer’s Asia leg of the Red Tour kicks off on May 30 and she was set to perform in Bangkok on June 9. Today it was announced she will no longer be taking to the stage on the set date. “I’m sending my love to the fans in Thailand. I’m so sad about the concert being canceled. (sic),” she apologised on Twitter. Thailand came under military rule last week, with a curfew being imposed between the hours of 10pm and 5am. No official reason was given for the concert cancellation, but promoter BEC-Tero posted on its website that it was down to “recent events in Thailand” and that it was “a difficult decision for all parties”. Taylor, 24, has been taking a short break from her tour since playing in London, England, in February. The Asia shows kick off in Shanghai, China, on May 30 and will move through Japan, Indonesia, the Philippines and Malaysia before finishing up in Singapore on June 12. It’s not known who will be supporting the 22 songstress on this leg yet, but throughout the Red Tour she’s invited acts including Ed Sheeran, The Vamps and Austin Mahone on stage. She also surprised fans in London with special guests including Sam Smith and Ellie Goulding. BEC-Tero NMW - MAY 30, 2014

also shared Taylor’s message of apology on its official Facebook and Twitter page. The star’s fans generally responded positively, with one commenting: “you care about ur fans, that is why i love u (sic)”

Katy Perry: Beyonce is number one

Katy Perry thinks Beyonce Knowles is “bionic”. The Roar singer has scored several number ones since bursting onto the scene with hit I Kissed a Girl in 2008. Despite counting as one of the biggest stars in the world, the 29-year-old isn’t comfortable with being given the pop queen crown. “It kind of embarrasses me because I don’t feel that way. I have pinch-me moments, sure, but Beyonce is the biggest pop star in the world so don’t be blasphemous,” she corrected Time Out London magazine. “I hope [I’m an empathetic pop star]. I work really hard; I work myself into this state. But Beyonce’s an icon and bionic, almost. I bet she doesn’t get sick ever!” Katy is known for being open with her fans and has discussed her divorce from Russell Brand in previous interviews. She thinks laying her cards on the table is important for her career. “My relatability, I think,” she answered when asked about her strengths as a pop star. “That and my openness to vulnerability. And just the general goodtime fun. And, possibly - not to keep going on - the kind of inspirational zest you can get from the songs.” Katy likes to relate to her fans by spending time in the cities she performs in. She adds that if she skips this, she feels “fraudulent” when she gets on stage. The Prismatic World Tour is currently in England, London, and the singer is keen to hit the city’s Natural History Museum. “I’m so thirsty - in all the best ways and uses of that word - for information at all times,” she explained. “I wasn’t privy to a great educational system growing up, so I’m just absorbing everything. I’m such an experience junkie. Like at the end of my life I just want to say that I lived and I did all of it.”

LeAnn Rimes Will Be A Chilled Mom

LeAnn Rimes insists she won’t be ‘too crazed’ as a mother. The 31-year-old singer is married to Eddie Cibrian, who has two sons with his ex-wife Brandi Glanville. Being step-mother to Mason and Jake has prepared the star for parenthood in some ways, with LeAnn believing she’ll have things down when she has kids of her own. “He’s the best Dad already,” she told Us Weekly of Eddie. “I have a little bit of experience with the kids now so, I feel like I wouldn’t be too crazed. It doesn’t feel like a real first, first!” Eddie was also present during the interview and hinted he isn’t ready for a bigger family just yet. ‘Look, maybe we should just get another dog and then see how that goes.’ he said, with LeAnn immediately

interjecting: ‘It’s harder than babies actually! Potty training [dogs] is way worse!’ LeAnn and Eddie got together when they were both married to other people and as a couple, their relationship with Brandi has been difficult. She has appeared on reality TV show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, with Eddie seemingly poking fun at that when he discussed his and LeAnn’s upcoming reality show LeAnn & Eddie. ‘I mean, look. You can expect a lot of drinking and a lot of fights and we throw a lot of sh*t at each other and it’s a debacle. It’s horrible,’ he laughed. LeAnn took a more serious note, insisting the show is a way for the couple to let their fans see their everyday lives. She feels so much is written about them that many people don’t know what they are really like; something she wanted to rectify. “I think people really think we take ourselves seriously,” she said. “It’s so opposite of that but no one ever gets to see it. Other than the reason of us wanting to work together and be home with the kids, why not have fun and poke fun at everything that’s gone on for the last five years.”

Tina Turner Slams Health Speculation

Tina Turner has denied suffering a stroke, insisting she is in “excellent health”. It was reported by German and Dutch publications that the 74-year-old, who resides in Switzerland, fell ill and is currently recovering from the medical condition. A man called Albert B. Cologne who claimed to be Tina’s driver gave quotes to Germany’s news source Express, who originally printed the story. However, the singer’s representative has slammed the rumours and insisted Tina is in fact fine. ‘The fact is that Tina enjoys excellent health,” they said in a statement. Tina’s representative also stated that the singer doesn’t have a driver named Albert. Albert had continued to claim the star had to change plans so she could convalesce. ‘She had a mild stroke, but is well on the road to recovery,’ he reportedly said. ‘Tina had to cancel her holiday to recover, she has already managed a smile for her partner Erwin Bach.’ The story has since been taken down from the source’s website. Tina is even said to have attended the launch of her new album in Zurich last Thursday in perfect physical condition, greeting fans and standing out in a red and white dress. In February the legendary musician’s close friend Oprah Winfrey slammed rumours of Tina suffering a stroke. She took to Twitter to share the truth and visited her close pal at her home in Europe. “Tina had a bad flu weeks ago. She’s recovered. And LIVING life! Sent me a single long-stem red rose for my birthday,” Oprah wrote at the time. Tina has lived in Switzerland since 1995, leading a low-key with her husband Erwin.

Wiz Khalifa Explains Cell Selfie

Wiz Khalifa made a cop believe he needed to call his wife so he could take a selfie from jail. The 26-year-old star was arrested for marijuana possession in Texas on Sunday morning and then stunned fans by posting an image of himself incarcerated on Twitter. He’s explained how that came about, seeing as prisoners usually don’t have access to cell phones. ‘[The officer] was p**sed,’ he told Sway in the Morning. ‘Cause I was like, ‘Yo, can I get that phone, man? I really need to call my wife. I gotta tell her what happened.’ And he gave me the phone, and I was like, ‘Selfie!’ Wiz was taken into custody after he was found to have a green leafy substance in his possession while passing through El Paso airport. He has claimed he had ‘a grinder’ on him and was held for less than a day. It meant he was able to perform at Soundset festival in Minnesota as planned. Wiz didn’t only post an image of himself online; he also took one of his cell door. 21

He captioned that, ‘Free Trap Wiz,’ which struck a chord with his fans on social networking sites ‘ something he was delighted to see. ‘It wasn’t really a surprise,’ he explained. ‘It definitely felt good, though. It’s good to see people rally up for a good cause, ‘cause you doing something positive over here. I’m a lot of kids’ hero. If you were to lock up the Ninja Turtles, I would have did exactly the same thing.’ Wiz also took to Twitter to thank his admirers for their support, explaining there are different types of people who look up to him. ‘I appreciate all fans and supporters but theres def a difference. None better than the other. Just different,’ he wrote. ‘Fans’ll make a supporter feel bad for standing up for what the believe. Supporters hardly give fans a chance to grow into something that could be real (sic).’

Stones Resume Tour

Sir Mick Jagger has taken to the stage for the first time since L’Wren Scott’s death. The Rolling Stones frontman put the band’s 14 On Fire tour on hold after his partner of 13 years committed suicide in March. Last night the grieving rocker managed to put on a show for fans at the Telenor Arena in Oslo, Norway, which went down a storm. The 70year-old was energetic on stage as he performed some of the Stones’ greatest hits with bandmates Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood. Mick’s kids Lizzie and James were there to support the star, as was former bandmate Mick Taylor, who admitted it was an emotional time. ‘We’re all looking forward to it but we’re a bit nervous. Mainly nervous for Mick. ‘We need to get the wheels turning again... ‘ he opened up to British newspaper The Sun before the performance. Hit Emotional Rescue went down well with the audience, as did ballad Worried About You. The show marked the return of the band’s tour and after their Scandinavia performances they will be heading to Lisbon, Zurich, Tel-Aviv and the Netherlands. L’Wren, 49, was found hanged in her Manhattan apartment in March. In a touching tribute, Mick opened up about his long-term partner. “I am still struggling to understand how my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way. We spent many wonderful years together and had made a great life for ourselves,’ he said in a statement. ‘She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me. I have been touched by the tributes that people have paid to her, and also the personal messages of support that I have received. I will never forget her.”

Julio Iglesias’ Ageing Crisis Julio Iglesias jokes that it was “a bit of a crisis” when he turned 70. The Latin lothario has sold over 300 million records in a career that has spanned 45 years. He’s just released new album 1 The Collection, a compilation of some of his most treasured tracks, and hitting a milestone birthday last September spurred him on further. “It was a bit of a crisis. I didn’t want to put a seven in my age. Not at the front, anyway,” he laughed to the British edition of Hello! magazine. “No, an artist who is surviving and singing for generations doesn’t have the right to have a crisis. Our family have a privileged life, so there’s no crisis. Nothing you can’t get over.” As well as he’s own successful career, which has seen him bag countless awards and accolades, Julio has also been able to watch son Enrique’s musical journey. Born in Madrid, Spain, Julio is the most successful Latin recording artist of all time. Far from basking in that glory, the star jokes his impressive back catalogue just serves as a reminder that he’s been around for so long. “I’ve sold records; I think my father bought most of them! No, but it’s nothing. Numbers including my age - are horrible because it means you’ve been there for a long time. The best number in my life at the moment is my son [Guillermo] who is six years old. That’s a great number,” he smiled. With such a hectic working life, it can often be hard to fit in family time. But Julio, who is a father of eight, has found a great way to merge the two. “Now if I want to take my family, we just fly together. We have an incredible life that way. I don’t have to travel in a van any more. We can fly 15 hours non-stop together, so I bring all my family to England now,” he said.

Dolly Parton: Scarlett’s My Bosom Buddy

Dolly Parton thinks Scarlett Johansson could play her in a movie because she’s “full bosomed”. The 68-year-old country singer has been in the music industry for decades and has also dipped her toe into acting over the years. Giving hints about an upcoming biopic based on her, Dolly shared why she thinks Scarlett would make a good candidate. “Well, you know what, I’m doing a musical of my life story - and I’m also doing a movie version!” she told People magazine. “When we started talking about a movie, people had mentioned Scarlett Johansson. I guess she’s full bosomed.” Country singers have become more successful recently, with stars such as Carrie Underwood gaining worldwide recognition and rewarded at the NMW - MAY 30, 2014

And I really admire Taylor Swift for her song writing and business sense.” Dolly looks as youthful as ever, still rocking her iconic blonde tresses.

Gregg Allman and 17 other individuals and companies have been sued by the parents of Sarah Jones who was killed in February while making the biopic Midnight Rider. Jones was an assistant on pre-production for the film who was on a train trestle over the Altamaha River in Georgia. An unexpected train came down the tracks and, while running from the bridge, a number of crew members were hit with debris from a mattress and other equipment that was being used. Jones was the only crewmember killed. In what is often called “casting a wide net”, the suit names everyone from the movie’s producers to CSX Transportation who owned the train and tracks to Rayonier Performance Fibers who owns the land surrounding the bridge. The suit alleges that the producers “selected an unreasonably dangerous site for the filming location; failed to secure approval for filming from CSX; concealed their lack of approval from CSX from the cast and crew ... and otherwise failed to take measures to protect the safety of the Midnight Rider cast and crew.” The accident set off a firestorm in Hollywood where the creative community rallied over unsafe working conditions. In addition, star William Hurt, who was to play Allman, quit the production and Allman sued to rescind the rights to make the film.

Bono And The Edge Working On New Musical

Let’s hope that Bono and the Edge from U2 have a bit easier time working on their next musical. After the tremendous upheaval and critical drubbing that greeted their last show, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, it’s a surprise that the pair would get involved with another musical but word is that they are working with

director John Carney on his semiautobiographical film Sing Street. Carney directed the musical hit film Once in 2006 and hopes to do it again with this story based on his childhood and love of music. The film revolves around a 14-year-old boy who forms a band, writes songs and shoots videos, all in hopes of escaping his homelife. The full extent of Bono and the Edge’s involvement is not yet clear. It is known that they are working on music for the film but there are indications that they may also be involved in other ways.

Macklemore Recording Daily

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are taking ‘forever’ to release their new album. The musical duo are currently working on the sequel to debut album The Heist. According to Ryan Lewis, fans should prepare to wait a long while as the group are taking their time. ‘We’re working on a follow up, and we take forever, so I can’t say how long it will take but we are in the studio daily, trying out new stuff,’ Ryan told MTV News. Joking about how they can afford a much nicer microphone this time around, the singer is excited about the new record. Although there will be lots of changes, Ryan is sure fans will appreciate how they have grown in terms of their sound. ‘Of course, a lot of it is different, [because] the context of working and your team, your whole environment and your life has completely changed,’ he explained. ‘But then there’s also aspects which are completely the same. If everything goes out of the window [and] it’s just you in the studio, can you make something that’s good art, or can not you not? I think the game is the same, the art the same, the process is the same. So for me, it’s really exciting.’ Since winning big at the Grammys with awards such as Best New Artist, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have admitted life has become hectic. Returning to the studio was actually a welcome respite and a chance to decompress. ‘I love DJing and traveling, but after playing well over 300 shows in a year and a half, it’s nice to be back, trying to make songs,’ Ryan admitted.

If the goal was to elevate the level of songs, performance, production value, and excitement, then Five surely marks the successful achievement of that goal. Future talks tour dates and Pharrell Future talks with Billboard about his 45-date tour promoting his ‘Honest’ album, and Pharrell’s reluctance to collaborate on the album’s first single ‘Move That Dope’. On Pharrell’s reluctance to doing ‘Move That Dope’ Future said “It was a difficult situation for him,” Future recalls. “He was going to the Oscars, and whatever he was in was a different music space, and to get him to do a verse on a song with that subject matter was difficult. [Pharrell] was like, ‘Man, I don’t know if I should do this, ‘cause I don’t want, like, a big backlash on me. I love this song, but I don’t want a backlash.’ I was like, ‘Man, no, it’s a positive message. The verse is telling people to let everything go. You have a message that’s positive throughout your verse. I think people need to hear that, ‘cause your voice is such a big voice in hip-hop.’ And he was down with it in the end.” Talking about spending time with fans on tour the rapper went on “I want to engage the fans, so there’s going to be a lot of breakdowns of me explaining where I was at when I was making the music. It’s gonna be more like a listening session ‘cause I’m able to give people details, song by song, to let them know the space I was in and where I was at recording it and what made me record those songs and what made me want to call this tour Honest.

soon and has already celebrated the impending nuptials. He and a huge group of pals headed to Las Vegas for the bash, which was held at the Palms Casino Resort’s Hardwood Suite. The venue is a 10,000 square foot room which boasts basketball hoops, a locker room, dance area and a butler who is on call 24 hours a day. According to People magazine the group did venture out of the suite at some points, including when the men enjoyed dinner at a nearby steakhouse. “Everyone in the restaurant recognised him,” a source explained. “He was saying hello and chatting with everybody in the restaurant.” The party feasted on salads, steaks and seafood platters, while tequila shots ensured things went with a swing. Adam and Behati got engaged in July, surprising many because they had briefly split just beforehand. They have stayed quiet on their plans for the big day, although it’s been claimed they are planning a destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Behati’s fellow Victoria’s Secret models Candice Swanepoel and Lily Aldridge are thought to have been invited to the ceremony, which will be small. As Behati comes from South Africa not all of her family will be able to attend, so the couple are planning another celebration in her homeland. “They’ll celebrate with people who can’t make the trip,” an insider told Us Weekly. The model has already selected her wedding gown, adding weight to the speculation that the nuptials will be held soon. “It’s bohemian, very beachy, very me,” she said.

Brantley Gilbert has teamed up with Justin Moore & Thomas Rhett for a strong Country entry. “Small Town Throw Down” (Valory Music/Universal) brings this powerhouse trio of new Country talent that is sure to light up any playlist. Lady Antebellum just keep rolling out the hits. Their latest in “Bartender” (Capitol Nashville) should keep them on top of their game for this Sumer. Dan & Shay have already proven that they are no one hit wonders. “Show You Off” (WB/WEA) is their follow-up and according to our panel of music and program directors this one is an out of the park smash hit. Please remember that you read about that first right here on the pages in our Country section. Dierks Bentley keeps rocking strong and seems to be getting back in the game. All bets are on that his new “Drunk On A Plane” (Capitol Nashville) will build into a new Country anthem. We’re thrilled to see that Scotty McCreery keeps building a nice career for himself. So much so that his new “Feelin’ It” (Mercury Nashville) is getting quite the buzz out there at Country radio from this former American Idol winner and one of our favorites. Red hot recording artist Jerrod Niemann keeps building his fane base by leaps and bounds. He’s now taking “Donkey” (Arista Nashville) out for a spin at radio and so far so very good. Eric Church continues to prove that you can rock and still have country hits. He keeps his edge on in the new “Cold One” (Universal Nashville) that is in there for the long haul. Also proving that she’s the real deal is Kacey Musgraves. We just love everything she pens and records and you can add “Keep It To Yourself” (Mercury Nashville) to that ever growing list. Those Brothers Osborne keep rocking the radio world and for good reason. Their latest offering in the song “Rum” (EMI) continues to help build their amazing career. Frankie Ballard seemed to have come out from nowhere but please believe that this artist is here to stay. “Sunshine & Whiskey” (WB/WEA) is fast becoming another real favorite among our gang of music and program directors and for good reason, it’s just that good. Two legends in Ray Price and Vince Gill prove once again that there is strength in numbers. The new duo has released the single “Beauty Lies In The Eyes Of The Beholder” (AmeriMonte) and everybody is raving about this version. We’ll see how is all plays out for the two in the weeks to come but so far we have a winner here. The pairing of Blake Shelton and Gwen Sebastian has proven to be a real big deal. So much so that their track “My Eyes” (Warner Music Nashville) is on track to the top of the charts. Another brilliant pairing in Tim McGraw and Faith Hill continues to reap benefits. “Meanwhile Back At Mama’s” (Big Machine/Universal) is really the one to watch for as it races by leaps and bounds on just about everybody’s playlist. Our good friend and bass guitarist Paul Bushnell joined Tim recently for his stint on The Voice and on Good Morning America and reports that all is well in the Tim and Faith camp. This is our special CMA Festival issue and we could not be more proud of all of these artists, especially some in the independent arena that are continuing to shine. Recording artist Billy White Jr is getting some solid actin for his “A Little Hitch” (Ayemaydah) single. Stonewall Jackson is pulling in some rather impressive numbers for “Black Sheep” (Turp Tunes). Macy Martin is off string with the track entitled “Me With You” (GTR) and John King is building his story ever so bight with “Tonight Tonight” (Ind). Major kudos go out to Andrew Heller as our man “on the cover” for this special CMA issue. He’s a super talent and has had great success on our charts. I hope that all of you have an great CMA Festival and with any luck I hope to meet you at this grand event “in person”. I’ll have more for you on the best of Country next time right here.

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

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

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

Billy Ray Cyrus ‘Hopefully, People Learn From My Mistakes’ Since 1992 and the success of a song called “Achy Breaky Heart,” Billy Ray Cyrus has learned all about busy schedules. Over two decades later, there is no sign the Kentuckian is slowing down. The singer is promoting his latest album “Change My Mind,” and has also just released his autobiography “Hillbilly Heart.” “It’s a very busy time,” he told Billboard over the weekend at Nashville’s Parnassus Books. “There was a song that I had a record on a few years ago called ‘Busy Man.’ I have found myself living those words in keeping up with all of this,” he said, referring to his top five smash from 1999. Cyrus goes into great detail about his youth in the book, with one memory concerning his father being a recurring theme of Hillbilly Heart. “Well, he gave me a lot of advice, but chapter one is called ‘Life Ain’t Fair.’ It’s the story about when my mom and dad were getting a divorce. I knew everything was messed up and different in my family as opposed to other families in Flatwoods, KY. One day, I asked him why things were like they were, and he pulled over, looked me in the eye, and said ‘Son, life ain’t fair. The sooner you realize that, the sooner you can move on.” Cyrus said he has replayed that conversation several times since whenever life’s highway has gotten rough. “Sometimes, you’ve just got to call it like it is, and do the best you can do with what you’ve been given. You work hard at your goals and your dreams. The book is dedicated to the dreamers. That’s another thing I learned from my dad -- no dream is too big to achieve. You’ve just got to chart a course, set a plan, and vow to pursue it.” When asked what he would like readers to take from the book, he says “There were a couple of times in my life where the rocket ride got a little fast, and you pray for purpose. I think it was a bit of my purpose to write this book. Hopefully, people might learn from my mistakes. I’m very honest about some of the ones I’ve made. If I can save someone from making some of the same ones, I think that’s the rhyme and the reason of the story. There’s also a few things I did right, and I think that’s something that some folks can borrow from and maybe help them to reach their goals and dreams.” He also talks about the stories of many of his biggest hits, including “Ready, Set, Don’t Go,” a 2007 duet with daughter Miley. “It was about those moments that you have in life as a daddy, where you see your little girl grow up. You think you’re ready to let go, and you prepare yourself for that moment, and you’re set. Then, as she’s saying goodbye, you want to reach out, hold her a bit longer and say ‘Don’t go.’ I still live it every day. I’ve got another little girl who just turned thirteen, Noah, so I’m living it through her. A lot of daddies and daughters have written me stories about that song, and how the song was played at weddings or graduations. One dad wrote me about taking his daughter to join the Army, and they listened to the song before they got out of the car. Things like that are the reason why I bought a guitar and started a band. The music touched somebody’s life, and it tends to make sense.” Having went through the whirlwind of “Achy Breaky” and “Hannah Montana,” the singer says “I’m at a pretty good spot in my life. I’ve written a bunch of new songs for an album I’m going to record this summer. I start a new movie the first week of May called ‘Like A Country Song’ that is filmed here in Nashville. I filmed a pilot with Randy Travis called ‘Still The King’ -- I play a dysfunctional Elvis impersonator who becomes a preacher. Randy’s the sheriff. It’s a great story, and I think it will find a home pretty soon. I love acting, being a singer / songwriter, and being here in Music City at this time in my life -- coming full circle with the book is quite unique.” 40

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.
