SUMMER MUSIC

FUN

Whenever we look back somehow we always seem to remember the “songs of Summer”. Our musical journey always puts this time of year in a very important place. It also represents the time of year for live performances and events that can happen best when the weather is just perfect for an open air venue or even a free concert in the park. As we combine these elements with great radio songs, it can all lead to a very special time to remember, especially when you include loved ones, family and friends. The smarter recording artists and bands always lean towards this time of year to generate income and radio activity. Many radio stations offer special summer events both paid and free in order to help them beat the guy across town in the ratings war. Younger bands use this time to get out and about and travel to various parts of the country for events and the like as they can count on good weather to help take them where they desire to travel. From back in the day to songs like “Hot Fun In the Summertime” by Sly and the Family stone to classics from “Summer In the City” to “Saturday In the Park” by Chicago, songs of this nature are still played today in a gold re-current category as many sound just as good today as they did when they were first released. The production value on many of these classic masterpieces are second to none and reflect back to a time when record production was treated like a serious profession unlike in today’s music where many are produced by people that hang out in the clubs and become producers overnight because they know how to hang with the major label guys and use more hype than actual talent. Many radio programmers this time of year like that up-tempo record to open up their music sets. As much as tempo may play an important part of programming this time of year and beyond some artists may choose to think the opposite. That may mean releasing a power ballad or some softer type of track to stay away from the pounding competition. Going back in time there have always been ballads of this nature that also make for great summer music and for artists that make a smart choice like that, it could lead to a real winner that’s finds an open slot in a programmer’s music diary. This might also be the time to plan for next Summer if you are a recording artist or band. We have received an overwhelming amount of requests for product and giveaway materials from radio stations, music and program directors for their local Summer events. Many like to provide something for their listeners that may include a visit from an upstart artist or band to provide free goods or a concert for the radio station. This in turn helps the act get more airplay in the region and it may also flush the station across town to play the artists music as well. Nobody in a market wants to feel left out of some breaking music act and this might be the best plan for getting your program started. New Music Weekly has once again stepped to the plate to provide this very special Summer issue. You will find many artists, especially new ones running some display ads in this edition. They know the power of radio and realize how important it is to capture the attention of radio stations and their programmers. Many times we would not push artists to release singles during this time of year but fortunately for them there are not a lot of great summer songs out there at this time. Looking at the way singles are being released this might end up being a very late summer music scene. To see just how strong the independent music situation is this Summer, all you have to do is look through our music charts. There are a number of new singles by both established and new artists that are finding a lot at radio. These artists seem to have found the wave for breaking music during this popular music time of year. We applaud them for “taking the plunge” and we are only too happy to be able to report their ongoing successful venture. Many will look back at the Summer of 2016 as a very special “Summer To Remember”.

Recording artist Demi Lovato is truly one of the more accomplished music artists of the pop arena and she has a big following at New Music Weekly and around the globe. Born Demetria Devonne “Demi” Lovato she is an American singer, songwriter and actress who made her debut as a child actress in Barney & Friends. In 2008, Lovato rose to prominence in the Disney Channel television film Camp Rock and signed a recording contract with Hollywood Records. Musically, Lovato is considered a pop, pop rock and R&B artist. She released her debut album, “Don’t Forget”, in September 2008. That project debuted at No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard 200 and has been certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America for sales of over 530,000 copies. In 2009, Lovato received her own television series, Sonny with a Chance. Her second album, “Here We Go Again”, was released that summer and debuted at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200, and it has been certified gold by the RIAA for sales of over 496,000 copies. Its title track became her first single to reach the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100, reaching number 15, and was certified platinum. For the Summer of 2016 Demi is pulling out all the stops. Her latest entry “Body Say” (Island/Republic) is fast becoming a radio hit keeping her well above the pack. We will keep you apprised on the new single and we truly hope that you enjoy this very special Summer 2016 edition. New Music Weekly continues are bold and ever so strong “new music revolution”. 3

Ariana Grande continues to build her fortunes at the Top40 format. Her latest “Into You” (Republic/Universal) is getting raves from our panel of music and program directors. Watch for some big weeks ahead for this gem. Recording artist Kiiara is turning music into gold. It’s all due to her “Gold” (Atlantic) track that has all the making of a solid debut hit. I’d get on this if I were you as you don’t want to be the last on board a big hit. Recording artist Lukas Graham has a good thing going and make no mistake about that. His new “Mama Said” (WB/WEA) proves that he’s no “one hit wonder” and this new track should go a long way in helping to build is future at radio. Shawn Mendes is one of the fastest rising young stars on the music planet today. His new “Treat You Better” (Island) puts him well ahead of the pack and watch for some big weeks and months ahead for Shawn to come. Another young upstart that is really getting raves from everybody at radio is Jordan Fisher. His debut single “All About Us” (Hollywood) is the talk of the town and that has to make Scot Finck over at Hollywood Records a very happy camper. Tory Lanez has a good thing going and he wants the rest of the world to know it. His new “Luv” (Interscope) track is one of the best from him to date so give that a spin around the block and you will not be disappointed. Drake has teamed up with his new best friend Future for a solid winning combination. Together they are taking the single “Grammys” (Cash Money/Young Money/Universal) out for a spin and I’m sure the results will be spectacular. The recent pairing of Coldplay and Beyonce for the special mix of “Hymn For The Weekend” (Parlophone/Atlantic) is really turning into something special and many programmers are signing their praises. I also love the new single from Kool Kat. They are taking the song “Necessary Groove” (Voice Inside) out for a spin and so far so very good for them. Kanye West is back at radio and that always makes for some fun times. His new “Father Stretch My Hands” (DefJam/IDJMG) is a bit of a departure for him but he wears it well. We will see how this all pans out for him in the weeks to come. I’m also happy to report that the band DNCE will no longer be listed as a “one hit wonder”. They took care of that syndrome with the single “Toothbrush” (Republic). It’s another super catchy bit and when you add a Jonas Brother to the mix you just can’t go wrong. Rihanna has a couple of singles out at radio and I’m always confused on the thinking from the label. “Needed Me” (Roc Nation/Universal) is the primary single but I just saw that they have released “Sledgehammer” as well so let’s try to confuse radio as much as possible here guys. The 1975 are rocking the radio world and make no mistake about that. “The Sound” (Interscope) is the jam of the Summer so get on to that program please. Daya continues to please us with great music. Her “Sit Still, Look Pretty” (Z Entertainment) shows us just why this artist is so red hot. I’m also happy to report that the indie band Lion In The Mane are showing some amazing progress. Their “Can’t Get Enough” (Ind) is so hot that you can barely touch it. So then just play it ok?! Newcomer Dianne Meinke has been having a solid run with her new “Ten Thousand More” (UVI). Jimmy White is back on track with “Michaela” (828) and there’s talk of a follow-up. Brandy Moss Scott is taking no prisoners as her “Oh How It Hurts” (Heavenly Tunes) moves to the top. John Ratliff and his band Receptacle are on fire with “Oh My”. Mr Mister Wilson is moving up with “What Will Tomorrow Bring” (Star Outreach) and Thadeus Project are breaking with “Hold On” (TRP). This is our very special Summer Issue and so many of these artists deserve your continued support and help. Check out the Top40 charts to see what we’re all so excited about. I’ll have more about the best Top40 songs of all time right here for our very next issue. For now stay cool and enjoy the biggest hits in the USA for the grand and amazing Summer of 2016.

The pairing of Nick Jonas with the ever popular Tove Lo has turned into pure magic. “Close” (Safehouse/Island) is the single that is getting raves and big time spins in the Hot AC and Top40 world. Those fun loving American Authors are at their best these days. They are taking the single “What We Live For” (Republic/Island) for a Summer spin and so far so very good. They are fast becoming one of the bet bands out in the USA and look for some even bigger and better things ahead for this rocking act. Simple Plan is getting lots of love at the format. Their new “Singing In The Rain” (Atlantic) Is fast becoming a real favorite among our music and program directors. Some think this track is the best one yet from this powerhouse band. Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez are making beautiful music together both on a world-wide tour and at radio. Their duet entitled “We Don’t Talk Anymore” (Atlantic) is moving past the pack and up into higher territory. Newcomer Ruth B has a good thing going and make no mistake about that. Her “Lost Boy” (Columbia) is quite amazing and showcases just how strong this artist is as a vocalist. She should become a real favorite when Grammy time comes around Tegan & Sara have a red hot single that deserves your immediate attention. “Boyfriend” (WB/WEA) Is the jam I’m talking about and this once could become a Summer smash in record time. Give it a few spins around the block to see how your listeners react. Jonas Blue has teamed up with Dakota for a winning combination. The track “Fast Car” (Capitol) has been a bit of a slow starter but don’t let that fool you. This one is a monster great record and just deserves a bit of a break to get to where it needs to go. Wrable is rocking the format from coast to coast. “11 Blocks” (Epic) is the cut that is getting raves from our reporting stations. They might be trying to tell us something here. It’s great to see Florida Georgia Line cross to this format. “H.O.L.Y.” (Big Machine/Universal) is their latest and what a talented couple of guys they are. DNCE is back with the follow-up to their #1 smash “Cake By The Ocean”. Now the new one in “Toothbrush” (Republic) is helping to put the act back on the top of the charts. Elton John is back and that’s always a good thing for our format. “A Good Heart” (Island) harkens back to the Elton of old and this one is a solid smash. Speaking of smash, the new single from Mirage Box fits nicely into that category. Their rendition of the classic hit “Magic” (Growlyman Endeavors) is just what the format needs this Summer. All you have to do is look at the early numbers to see just what I’m talking about. The proof is on the chart activity that you can see for yourself on our AC40 charts. Newcomer Dru Ross is breaking with his debut single and in a very big way. “Love Simulation” (Ross Records) can be found at the top of many “most added” columns and that an indication of a single set to break wide-open. This young hip-hop “rocker” from the small town of Goldendale Washington has what it takes to become the “next big thing”. Also getting raves at radio is the new single from Renee Zawawi. Her new “Happy Hour” (PSP) is pulling in some rather impressive numbers and it’s now moving rapidly up the charts in record time. She’s got talent and beauty which will take her a long way. Eileen Carey is on fire with her new “In The Air” (Rolley Coaster) single. The band Thadeus Project is killing it out there at radio with their “Hold On” (TRP) track. Mr Mister Wilson continues to build his fortunes as his “What Will Tomorrow Bring?” (Starchild Outreach) move closer to the top. Jimmy White has a big #1 with “Michaela” (828) amd congrats to him on that. Brandy Moss Scott is getting closer with “Oh How It Hurts” (Heavenly Tunes). Chuck Murphy is on fire with his “Cow Girls” (One West) and Dianne Meinke is rocking big time with “Ten Thousand More” (UVI). I’ll have more for you next time right here.

With the multi-platinum success of their band Good Charlotte, it’s easy to forget that its founders, twin brothers Joel and Benji Madden, were once small-town boys from Southern Maryland, who could only dream of hitting the big time in the music industry. “We created the band in our bedroom,” Joel says.

“We were sleeping in the same bed wearing winter coats in a house that didn’t have heat talking about what it was going to be like when our band makes it,” - Benji Of course, they did make it. With their 5 full length albums, Good Charlotte have sold over 10 million copies worldwide, attracted an international fanbase, played headlining shows and festivals around the world, and earned a place in history with their radio-ready pop-punk sound captured on such albums as their 3xplatinum breakthrough The Young and the Hopeless. In the process, Joel and Benji have become international stars. In 2011, Joel was invited to appear as a coach on the highly rated Australian version of The Voice, which has just begun airing its new season. This year, Benji joins Joel as a coach on the upcoming season of The Voice Kids. The brothers also own and operate a fully functional recording studio in Hollywood where they write, record, and produce music for other artists. All the Maddens have ever wanted to do is make meaningful music. “We’ve always had the desire to do something timeless that could outlive us, “Benji says. They have already done that. The Young and the Hopeless was a genre-changing album, and they were only 22 when they made it. Turns out, though, it was only just the beginning. Joel and Benji have started a

new band called The Madden Brothers — a moniker whose simplicity reflects their earnest desire to express who they truly are. “Harvey Leeds, the guy who discovered us, used to say, ‘You’re like The Everly Brothers. Why would you be in a band? You should just be The Brothers,’ Benji recalls. “So the idea was to not hide behind a band name or a genre, write some songs, and find someone to record them and help us deliver the truest picture of who we are musically.” When you strip away the live theatrics and fancy production, Benji and Joel are classic pop songwriters at heart, in possession of a killer knack for melody, harmony, and heartfelt story-telling. They showcase these gifts on The Madden Brothers’ debut album, Greetings From California…, which Capitol Records will release this fall. The album is split into two “sides,” the first filled with upbeat, sunny pop-rock produced by their long-time collaborator Eric Valentine, who also produced Good Charlotte’s The Young and the Hopeless and 2004’s The Chronicles of Life and Death. With a cheery vibe and harmonies reminiscent of The Beach Boys and the Phil Spector sound, Side 1 features several hook-happy stand-outs, including the soulful, ’60s-inspired and lyrically unapologetic “We Are Done,” the unabashedly poppy “Dear Jane,” (with lead vocals by Benji, who sings lead of half of the album’s tracks), and the urgent love song “Out of My Mind.” “We knew we needed to work with Eric,” Joel says. “There’s a magic that happens when the three of us get in a room together. He really knows how to pull the best stuff out of us, not to mention he’s an incredible musician and writer himself.” On Side Two, The Maddens’ radiant sibling harmonies are again front and center on songs like “California Rain” and “Brother,” but the music is more earthy, with a warm blend of folk, Southern rock, and ’70s-era FM pop. To get the sound, the guys turned to Grammy Award-winning producer Joe Chiccarelli, known for his work with The White Stripes, The Strokes, The Shins, Boy and Bear, and many others. “We’ve never had a really organic and natural recording, where it was just us kind of naked and not hiding behind walls of guitars and production,” Benji says. “Joe can capture that unvarnished quality and make it sound great. He’s one of the last great classic record-makers.”

Both sides of Greetings From California… reflect The Madden Brothers’ easygoing, West Coast-influenced creative spirit, hence the title, which was also inspired by what they consider a full-circle journey making the record. It began to take shape during a visit to see their friend Pharrell Williams in Miami in early 2012. They had just come off an 18-month tour supporting Good Charlotte’s 2010 album Cardiology and had been talking about doing an album together, just the two of them.

“We went to see Pharrell because he’s someone we really love and respect,” - Joel “Benji brought an acoustic guitar and it felt like a repeat of us leaving home at 18 for California with just an acoustic guitar. Pharrell recognized that we wanted to make classic, California rock and roll and drew comparisons to the Eagles which inspired us even more. We wrote “California Rain” together that night.” The beginning of Side Two, “California Rain” marked a turning point for Benji and Joel. Lyrically, the song tells the story of the brothers’ East Coast to West Coast journey: “Let me take you back before the lights, before the crowd, before we made a sound / All I wanted was to make my mother proud / She told me ‘Son, we’re from the side of town, no one ever makes it out.’” “It’s about the dream,” Benji says. “It’s about the music industry. California is a magical place, and we liken it to the dream.” “We definitely wanted the song to be epic, because California is epic to us,” Joel says. “The song sums up our experience — past, present, and future. We still believe in the dream. We still believe that some kid somewhere can leave home with an acoustic guitar like we did, a backpack, and 40 bucks, and hitchhike down the road and make it to California.” 15

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?

ALL ROADS

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.

IS WARNER/CHAPPELL EXTRACTING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN UNLAWFUL LICENSING FEES?

Defendant Warner claims the 1988 acquisition includes valid copyright ownership, and that due to the 1962 Copyright Act extension, and then the 1998 Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act, its ownership interest does not expire until 2030! Therefore, until the court issues its decision (expected this month or next) the debate continues between two groups of thought as to whether or not the Happy Birthday song still enjoys (or for that matter, ever enjoyed) copyright protection. If the court decides Warner does not have valid copyright interest, it will potentially owe millions of dollars in recently demanded fees. However, the court could uphold the Warner/Chappell copyright claim.... or, decide that it is not appropriate to make a decision without a trial..... to be scheduled in 2016? 2017? So don’t light those birthday candles and sing until you receive the court’s decision. The present issue arose when a Jennifer Nelson, who was making a documentary about the Happy Birthday song, faced a demand by Warner (still claiming copyright ownership) to pay a $1,500 licensing fee if she used the song. Warner’s copyright claimed fees encouraged others to initiate a suit against Warner/Chappell seeking a court decision invalidating any copyright claim to the song, putting the song in public domain. Warner claims the 1935 copyright registration (which changed hands but eventual was part of Warner’s 1988 acquisition of musical holdings) is valid. But the lawsuit claims: “...defendant Warner/Chappell boldly, but wrongfully and unlawfully, insists that it owns the copyright to Happy Birthday to You...and has extracted millions of dollars in unlawful licensing fees...” Warner/Chappell firmly disagrees. In an effort to have the court make an immediate decision in advance of any trial, both sides have asked the court for a Summary Judgment decision (that is that their side has such over-powering proof of its position that the judge can rule in their favor without waiting to conduct a trial). Each side presented their evidence in a court hearing last week.

The plaintiffs claim that copyright protection ended prior to the 1935 registration of the song, emphasizing that simply because a copyright is registered does not necessarily mean the registrant has valid copyright protection.. The plaintiffs argue that the 1935 registration is illusory...and point out that the 1909 copyright law (in effect at that time) required material published prior to 1923 be accompanied by copyright ownership notice. Smoking gun? Plaintiffs recently located 1922 songbook which includes a copy of the Happy Birthday song with no accompanying copyright notice. Therefore the Plaintiffs’ anti-copyright position is that the song’s copyright protection ended prior to Warner’s claimed 1935 copyright.

Newly-single Lady Gaga returning to stage for political gig Lady Gaga will make her first public appearance since calling off her engagement at a Democratic National Convention concert in New Jersey next week. The pop superstar confirmed she and actor fiance Taylor Kinney are “taking a break” in an emotional post on Instagram on Wednesday, but she is refusing to let her love split force her into hiding. Instead, Gaga will return to the stage on 28 July to perform at the Camden Rising gig, organised to take place just hours before former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton formally accepts the Democratic Party nomination for president at the Democratic National Convention in nearby Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Rocker Lenny Kravitz and DJ Jazzy Jeff are also part of the show line-up. It’s not the first political event Gaga has been involved in for Hillary - she also threw her support behind the presidential candidate last year (15), when she and frequent collaborator Tony Bennett teamed up to perform at a New York City fundraiser. Gaga is said to have separated from Kinney a few weeks ago, and she was first seen without her engagement ring while out in Malibu, California on Friday - the Chicago Fire actor’s 35th birthday. She was then spotted on vacation with friends in Mexico over the weekend, when again her diamond was missing from her left ring finger. However, as she addressed the break-up reports on Wednesday, Gaga admitted she and her beau are still trying to figure things out. Alongside a snap of the couple with its arms around one another, Gaga wrote: “Taylor and I have always believed we are soulmates. Just like all couples we have ups and downs, and we have been taking a break. “We are both ambitious artists, hoping to work through long-distance and complicated schedules to continue the simple love we have always shared. Please root us on. We’re just like everybody else and we really love each other.” The stars became engaged last year, after four years of dating.

Calvin Harris didn’t see Taylor and Tom romance coming

John Newman admits his close friend Calvin Harris was shocked by Taylor Swift’s speedy new romance. Calvin and Taylor dated for 15 months, surprising fans when their seemingly stable relationship ended abruptly in June (16). Not long after the split, Taylor started dating British actor Tom Hiddleston, with the pair flaunting their new love in front of the world’s press. Many believe Calvin’s new song Ole, featuring vocals from John, is about the situation, with John revealing what it’s been

like to see the drama unfold. “I’m a very good friend of Calvin’s, I’ve seen everything that’s gone on,” he told Britain’s Heat magazine. “I’ve spoken to him about it all. He’s my friend, so I’ve seen it all. “(It’s) a really weird thing that caught me off guard. (What’s going on) is exactly what you’ve seen (in the press). I know Calvin was shocked by what happened – he had no idea either, nobody did.” With lyrics like, “I see online that you begun to be a good girl and take trips with your boyfriend”, fans assume this is a thinly veiled dig at the couple, who have been snapped together all around the world since hooking up. The track also starts with the words “Low key”, which sounds a lot like Loki, Tom’s character in the Thor films. John is remaining tight lipped on the song’s origin, but does confirm Calvin penned it about his own experiences. “It’s 100 per cent about Calvin’s personal life, I don’t know which part it’s about,” he said. “He needed to write something and he wanted it to go out, whatever it’s about. I’m not saying it’s about anything in particular and that is totally his answer – it’s his words that count on that…” John isn’t getting too downhearted for his pal though, and doesn’t expect Calvin, who’s been linked to singer Tinashe, to be single for very long. “He’s a lover man. He’s a got a lot of love to give!” he grinned.

Joel and Benji Madden want to rescue ‘beaten’ artists

Benji Madden blasts music managers who make artists feel “worthless”, something he and brother Joel don’t do with their managed acts. The Good Charlotte rockers are the duo behind management business MDDN, which signed Jessie J in 2015 after the British pop star grew close to the twins on the Australian version of The Voice. Starting the company has given Benji and Joel, 37, a fresh outlook on the music industry and they’re keen to make their acts feel as comfortable as possible. “You realise that they (the managers and executives) were lucky to be working with us - it wasn’t us lucky to be working with them,” Benji told Kerrang! magazine, stressing how important great managers and great labels are to the success of a musician. “But (it should) not (be) in the way that a lot of the industry seems (to operate), like a pimp trying to keep a prostitute. They beat (artists) down into feeling like they’re worthless.” Joel agrees with his brother, explaining they understand the situation because they’ve been in a similar position themselves. While he doesn’t feel like a figurehead, Joel does think of himself as a champion with his efforts in helping their acts break boundaries. Since Good Charlotte was formed in 1996 the group has spawned

an array of hits. The catchy guitar riffs have cemented the band firmly in the ‘pop punk’ category, and Joel wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. “We love pop punk. We always did,” he smiled. “But it’s largely dismissed. There’s no Grammy for pop punk, and you have musicians like (Green Day’s) Billie Joe (Armstrong) saying he wants to destroy the term. But I don’t.” Joel puts this passion down to his upbringing in a “broken home” in Washington D.C., and during his adolescence the genre of music was the only thing that allowed him and Benji to fit in. The brothers have experimented a little with their sound though as their duo act The Madden Brothers touched on a more alternative sound.

Ziggy Marley’s reveals new live video for ‘Weekend’s Long’

Ziggy Marley is in the middle of an extensive US album tour, performing songs off his latest self-titled release. We are lucky to have an exclusive video of him singing his first single ‘Weekend’s Long’. “This album is about the struggles of humanity. I’m not singing about my own struggle but that of the human family – which I feel a strong connection to,” he explained. “I found myself emotionally and consciously affected by the plight of our species in general. We’re all family. We can’t let ego be the driver; truth has to be the driver. We have to help each other.” “Weekends Long” has dark emotion hidden among the pebbles of rhythm and smooth long-whistling notes. The beat is persistent and the trembles of the steel-pan drum give a sunny disposition.

will.i.am developing new game show

Rapper will.i.am is planning to reunite with members of the Black Eyed Peas for a brand new singing game show. The hip-hop star is working with producers at Natalka Znak and Simon Jones’ TV company to create Superdope, a series which will feature aspiring artists receiving notes from celebrity advisors, including will. i.am. According to Deadline.com, he will also serve as host, and is hoping to recruit his Black Eyed Peas pals to perform on the show and help him mentor the contestants. The series will be filmed in Los Angeles, and is currently being shopped to broadcasters in the U.S. and U.K. Sources reveal Apple TV officials have expressed an interest in picking up the show, after recently buying another of will.i.am’s reality ideas - Planet of the Apps, an app-related competition programme. It is not known if all of will’s bandmates - Taboo, apl.de.ap, and singer Fergie - will partake in

Collective Soul heads out on the road on an extensive market summer tour with Goo Goo Dolls starting tonight in Spokane, Wash., and crossing 50 U.S. cities through September, including the newly announced headline show on September 10th in San Antonio, Texas.

Superdope, but if they do, it will mark their first project together since embarking on a hiatus in 2011. The three rappers previously reunited last year (15) for the track Yesterday, to mark their 20th anniversary, while they also recently performed onstage together at will.i.am’s concert in London, where he spends part of his time as a judge on Britain’s The Voice talent show. Earlier this month (Jul16), he also signed on to act as a coach on the children’s spin-off The Voice Kids in 2017. The TV news emerges weeks after Fergie admitted she was missing her fellow Where is the Love? hitmakers, and was hoping to regroup with them one day soon. “I miss those guys,” she told London’s Evening Standard. “I’ve been working so hard on this (my solo career) right now. They’re my brothers for life. We don’t have anything in the works right now, but I love them to death.” Following the band’s hiatus, Fergie took a few years off to focus on raising her son Axl, who was born in 2013, and recently made her comeback with solo single M.I.L.F. $.

Iggy Azalea inks TV production deal

Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the U.S.A.” continues to strike a chord with fans and audiences nationwide as digital sales of the patriotic hit tops more than 1,000,000. “God Bless the U.S.A.” also reentered Billboard’s Top 10 Country Digital Songs at No. 9 in the week ending July 7. Mike Dungan, Chairman & CEO of Universal Music Group Nashville, recently presented Greenwood with a Gold RIAA plaque for more than 500,000 sales of the single as well as a Platinum RIAA plaque for more than 1,000,000 of “God Bless the U.S.A.”

Rapper Iggy Azalea is trying her hand at television after inking a major production deal with bosses at NBC Universal. The Fancy hitmaker recently set up her Azalea Street production company, and on this week, she revealed her firm struck an agreement with the massive corporation, and now she’s gearing up to create scripted content for the small screen. Iggy, real name Amethyst Kelly, posted a photo of the company’s logo, which features two intersecting street signs with the words “Azalea St.” and “Productions” in a black-and-white illustration. She added the caption, “Wanted to share with everyone that my production company “Azalea Street” has just signed on to create original content for UniversalNBC! So guys, I’m an Executive Producer for at least a few years to come! Hopefully many! “Lots of scripted series in the works! Lots of interesting ideas! I’ve been working on this for a long time now and can’t wait to share more info with you soon. #careerwoman #girlplansgodLaughs”. The firm’s name comes from the Australian street she grew up on, and also served as the inspiration for her stage name. Iggy’s new venture comes a month after splitting from her ex-fiance and basketball star Nick Young. Their romance of nearly three years ended amid allegations of his infidelity, which first arose in March (16) when a video apparently showing him admitting to cheating on his girlfriend was leaked online. Although Iggy initially stuck by him to try to work things out, it became clear their relationship was irreparable, and the Los Angeles Lakers star has since confirmed he is preparing to become a father again with his ex, Keonna Green. They share a four-year-old son called Nick, Jr.

Jennifer Lopez developing dance competition series

Singer-songwriter and multi-platinum recording artist Shawn Mendes’ highly-anticipated sophomore album, Illuminate, will be released September 23rd via Island Records. The album, featuring current hit single “Treat You Better,” is available for pre-order now via shawnmendesofficial.com. 22

Jennifer Lopez is on the hunt for the best dancers in the world for a new reality TV competition series. The Booty singer started off her career as a dancer, and now she’s using her first passion to help a new generation get their start in the industry with a show titled World of Dance. Lopez has teamed up with executives at America’s NBC network and international dance brand World of Dance for the unscripted series, which will feature elite dancers from around the globe. Competitors will be split into three divisions - kids under the age of 16, individuals over the age of 16, and groups. They will compete in various genres including hip-hop, tap, ballet, ballroom and more, facing off in duels until only one act in each division is left standing. The finale of the 10episode series will feature the winners from each division competing for a $1 million (£763,000) grand prize and the

title of ‘Best in the World’. “This will be a fierce talentheavy dance competition that embraces the raw emotion and excitement that dance represents,” Lopez said in a statement. “I am excited to work with World of Dance, an organization that has had an immeasurable impact on the dance community, to give all dancers an enormous platform where their dreams can be realized.” Lopez, who stars in NBC’s police drama Shades of Blue, will executive produce the series with her longtime partner Benny Medina. Emmy-winning choreographers Tabitha and Napoleon D’umo, who frequently collaborate with Lopez and created her moves for her Las Vegas residency show, are also on board to develop numbers for the show. This isn’t Lopez’s first foray in the world of reality TV - she previously served as a judge on hit singing series American Idol, and produced 2007’s Dancelife, which centred around the lives of seven dancers attempting to break into the world of professional dance.

Kesha set to tour as court battle continues

Pop star Kesha is putting her ongoing legal woes to one side to embark on a summer (2016) tour. The Tik Tok hitmaker, who has been battling with her former mentor and producer Dr. Luke after accusing him of physical and emotional abuse in 2013, took to social media on Tuesday to announce plans for a string of live dates as she continues to get back to business. “i’m going on tour this summer!!!!!” the 29-year-old wrote in her Twitter.com post, adding, “deets coming soon!” The message was accompanied by an Instagram video clip, in which she says, “Hi, guys! You coming to hang this summer with us? We’re going on tour...! Will I see you guys there? It’s gonna be f**king crazy.” Kesha goes on to reveal she will be performing previously-unheard material on the trek - and it may be fans’ only chance to her it live. “I’m playing songs you’ve never heard me play before, and I may never play (them) again,” she adds. “Only a couple shows, so I wanna see you there. It’s purely for the f**king love of rock and roll in my soul.” The singer did not share any specific show details in her announcement post, but LiveNation.com has billed the trek as Kesha: The F**k The World Tour, and listed the first show as taking place in Ontario, Canada on 28 July. She will then make stops in cities including Brooklyn, New York, Cleveland, Ohio, and Chicago, Illinois, before wrapping up the trek in Louisville, Kentucky on 23 August, according to the concert promotion site. The shows will be Kesha’s first proper tour since a judge dismissed her bid to be released from her contract with Dr. Luke’s Kemosabe Records and Sony Music in April. The pop star sued to free herself from the agreement she claimed binds her to the producer, who she alleges physically and emotionally abused her - accusations the music mogul has strenuously denied. She made her live comeback days after the court loss by joining DJ Zedd onstage at the Coachella music festival in California to sing his track True Colors. She then went on to play with Ben Folds at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas in May, performing a cover of Bob Dylan’s It Ain’t Me, Babe. Dr. Luke and his Kemosabe Records executives, who still oversee her career, only allowed her set to go ahead when she assured them she had no plans to attack the hitmaker at the ceremony. Kesha has also become a regular at the Wynn Las Vegas, where she is set to stage her third and final date in her mini-residency on Saturday.

Known for genuinely gritty lyrics and hard rock anthems, Aaron Lewis is getting back to his Country roots September 16 with his first album on Dot Records entitled SINNER. Lewis comes out of the gate “with both fists flying” on the lead single “ThatAin’t Country,” –available today - where he laments the current state of “Country, if you call it that,” and pines for the sound of his honky-tonk heroes. The Bocephus-styled musicality and Lewis’ accessible vocals showcase the “pain, heartache and desperation,” a bedrock of traditional Country that is often missing from the airwaves today.

headlines again when Kim Kardashian shared a video on her Snapchat that showed her husband Kanye West on the phone with Taylor, apparently getting her approval for the lyrics in his track Famous. Following the release of the footage, Taylor released a statement insisting she was never told that Kanye was going to refer to her as a “b***h” in the song, and never gave permission for him to do so. Now video director Joseph Kahn, responsible for Taylor’s star-studded Bad Blood video, has come out in defence of the singer in a series of controversial tweets. Referring to Kim’s late father Robert Kardashian defending O.J. Simpson when the athlete was accused of murdering his estranged wife Nicole and her friend Ron Goldman, Joseph tweeted: “Ain’t the first time the Kardashians supported the murder of an innocent blonde woman.” Simpson was found not guilty of the murders of Nicole and Ron, who were stabbed to death in 1994. Joseph continued with his tweets by insisting Taylor would never have approved the song if she had been made aware that Kanye was going to call her a “b***h”. “Kanye didn’t say the line ‘I made that b***h famous’ on the call,” he wrote. “It’s like saying ‘I want to love you’ without ‘in the a**.’ “ When Joseph was attacked by many for making the comparison between Taylor and murdered Nicole, and for getting involved in the feud, he added: “Heads up: I give no f***s and never will. Thanks. Continue.” He later added: “My tweets today going viral. The power of truth.” Joseph isn’t the only friend of Taylor’s to speak out on the feud. The singer’s best friend Abigail Anderson also caused controversy when she waded in by writing a prayer to Kim and Kanye’s three-year-old daughter North on her Twitter page. “Lord, hear my prayers... I pray God helps your daughter understand, that despite how many times she’ll hear daddy reference all women as ‘b***hes,’ she isn’t one,” Abigail wrote on Twitter. “I pray she understands her father actually IS faithful to her mother, despite all the adulterous comments she will hear her father making. “I pray that she will understand ‘adultery and b***hes’ are just daddy’s form of art and not to worry because not every man thinks like him. Lastly, I pray for forgiveness. May God forgive you & your wife for doing to others the very things you pray are NEVER done to your daughter.” Abigail deleted her tweets after claiming she had been subjected to death threats, but left a message saying she will “always stand by” her best friend.

Justin Bieber unrecognised as he hunts for Pokemon

Justin Bieber faded into the crowd in New York City in the early hours of Monday this week after joining fellow Pokemon Go gamers to hunt down coveted characters. The pop superstar is among the celebrities who have become hooked on the popular mobile app, in which gamers are encouraged to go out and ‘catch’ the digital creatures, and he used his down time in the Big Apple to chase Pokemon near Central Park with his friends. His pal Alfredo Flores shared one clip of the singer running across a street with a group of other Pokemon-obsessed fans in their search of the rare Gyarados creature. “When #Gyrados (sic) decides to pop up across the street from Central Park and all hell breaks loose!” Flores captioned the footage, adding, “#GottaCatchEmAll”, and tagging Bieber in the post. Justin’s manager Scooter Braun was also on hand to witness the Pokemon mayhem, and he was surprised no one recognised the Boyfriend hitmaker. “This is amazing,” he commented alongside his own clip of the crowd rush. “@justinbieber and @alfredoflores in nyc looking for Pokemon and no one looks at who is next to them.” Bieber is currently in New York to wrap up the North American leg of his Purpose World 24

Tour with two dates at the fabled Madison Square Garden venue on Monday (18Jul16) and Tuesday night (19Jul16). The singer isn’t the only star to become obsessed with Pokemon Go - Demi Lovato has also been actively playing while on tour with Nick Jonas, while the Jealous hitmaker’s brother Joe, rocker John Mayer, and model Chrissy Teigen have all shared posts on social media about their gaming progress, too.

Taylor Swift nixes pseudonym and puts name back on Calvin Harris hit

Taylor Swift is shaking off her songwriter pseudonym on the hit song she co-wrote with ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris. The pop superstar recently confirmed she had penned the lyrics for This Is What You Came For, Calvin’s latest collaboration with Rihanna, after initially trying to keep her involvement in the track a secret by having it credited to her pseudonym, Nils Sjoberg. The truth was only revealed after reports suggested a dispute over the the song had led to the end of Taylor and Calvin’s relationship, after the DJ dismissed the idea of teaming up with the singer in the studio during a radio interview on the day of the single’s April release. The denial is said to have been the “breaking point in the relationship”, and they split in late May. Now the Style star has apparently changed her mind about having her real name listed on the track, and has had the credits altered to reflect her true identity. On the database for BMI, the organisation which protects licences for songwriters, Taylor’s name is now clearly stated in the writing credits for the tune instead of Nils Sjoberg. However, Taylor’s Sjoberg pseudonym is still listed on the ASCAP database, a similar site for credit listings and performance rights. While it’s unclear what Taylor’s intentions were in officially changing the co-writing credit to her real name, the move comes after Calvin took aim at his ex for trying to make him “look bad” after her rep confirmed her involvement in the song. He took to Twitter last week to insist he wasn’t the one who wanted to keep her contributions a secret, and expressed his disappointment in her publicists, who appeared to have spun the story to discredit the dance star. He wrote, “Hurtful to me at this point that her and her team would go so far out of their way to try and make ME look bad at this stage though”. He also touched on Taylor’s rebound romance with Thor actor Tom Hiddleston, who she began dating just days after parting ways with Calvin, and took a swipe at the singer for attempting to “bury” him, like Katy Perry, her pop nemesis. “I figure if you’re happy in your new relationship you should focus on that instead of trying to tear your ex bf down for something to do,” the DJ continued. “I know you’re off tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy ETC but I’m not that guy, sorry. I won’t allow it.”

The summer’s most anticipated metal mash up performance - featuring pop metal icons BABYMETAL and Judas Priest’s legendary vocalist Rob Halford - took place last night at the third annual Journey’s Alternative Press Music Awards, Fueled by Monster Energy.

Rita Ora’s split from record label has influenced others

Rita Ora has been asked by other artists how to successfully split from a record label in the wake of leaving Roc Nation. The British singer found worldwide fame as part of Jay Z’s music label, but things turned sour when the company sued Rita for breaking her recording contract and failing to deliver the albums she was meant to. She shot back with claims of neglect, and reached an out of court settlement in June (16). Since the case has come to light, Rita has found she is being sought out for advice on similar matters. “It’s shocking how many artists go through it. A lot of artists, not naming any names, called me saying, ‘How do I get out of this?’” she told Britain’s Metro newspaper. The Poison singer has now signed a fresh deal with Atlantic Records, and

DJ/remixer/producer DEE JAY SILVER has officially released his first original single, “Just Got Paid” featuring Austin Webb today (July 15).

On the heels of her milestone debut songwriting round at Nashville’s legendary Bluebird Cafe, rising country newcomer Olivia Lane is gearing up for the release of her self-titled EP on July 29 (Big Spark Music Group). The inspiring six-song collection is available for pre-order starting this week. Charles Esten, actor, songwriter, and artist well known for his role as Deacon Claybourne on ABC’s “Nashville,” has long contemplated releasing an album or an EP. Recently, he has decided that instead, he will be going a different route: Beginning on Friday July 15th, he will be releasing a new original single every Friday. Says Esten, “I started off as a singer/songwriter, and even though I became an actor, I’ve been writing and playing music all along. Since coming to Nashville four years ago, music has taken an equal place in my life. I’ve been blessed to be able to write and perform a catalog of songs with some truly fantastic people - and that has been a real joy. What I haven’t done is release much of this music at all.

Under Roc Nation she only ever brought out one album, her debut record Ora in 2012, and the 25year-old confesses she even considered giving up music during her legal dispute. “You’re thinking, ‘Is it worth it?’ It becomes so heavy at times,” she sighed, before adding: “F**k, of course it’s worth it, this is all I’ve ever wanted to do.” When asked about her former mentor Jay, the blonde star says she has nothing but respect for the man who made her a star. Singing is no longer her only love though, and Rita is looking to win more film roles after landing the pat of Christian Grey’s sister Mia in the Fifty Shades of Grey film series.

Elton John settles sexual harassment case

Sir Elton John has reportedly paid a former British male employee a six-figure sum to settle a sexual harassment case. The unnamed British male was dismissed by the Rocket Man singer in mid2015 and he launched legal action against Elton and two of his companies for unfair dismissal and sex discrimination, including allegations of sexual misconduct in August. Elton reportedly paid a sixfigure sum to settle the case out of court in February, and the employee withdrew his claim. The singer strongly denies the allegations, but is pleased the legal proceedings have been settled, his spokesman said. “These employment proceedings were brought after Sir Elton John’s company parted ways with one of its employees in June 2015,” the statement to British newspaper The Sun on Sunday reads. “The NMW - JULY 22, 2016

claims were always strongly denied and we continue to deny them... Sir Elton John is pleased that the former employee withdrew the claims in full and that the issue was settled in February this year.” Details of the case were made public by the newspaper on Sunday after Britain’s Court of Appeal lifted reporting restrictions following numerous attempts by the singer to keep the case secret since December through a series of appeals. The settlement took place just a month before the singer was hit with separate sexual harassment allegations from former security guard Jeffrey Wenninger. He filed a lawsuit in March claiming he was groped by the 69-year-old while he was employed in 2014, but Elton’s lawyer Orin Snyder issued a statement denying the claims. “This baseless lawsuit is brought by a disgruntled former security officer seeking to extract an undeserved payment,” he told Digitalspy.com at the time. “These claims are patently untrue and contradicted by numerous previous statements made by this plaintiff. We will not give into his latest abuse of the legal system.”

Motley Crue’s Vince Neil sued by woman over Las Vegas assault

The woman who Vince Neil grabbed by the hair and threw to the ground in Las Vegas earlier this year is suing the singer for $75,000 in damages. According to reports, Neil, Nicholas Cage and comedian Carrot Top were leaving the Aria Hotel in Las Vegas on April 7 when Kelly Guerrero and her 14-year-old son approached Cage, who was the boy’s favorite actor. Cage had just had Neil in a headlock and, as the pair approached, began walking away. According to the suit, without provocation, Neil grabbed Guerrero by the hair on the back of her head and pulled her to the

pavement on her back. When he realized what was going on, Cage once again put Neil in a headlock and told TW him toARTIST “stop this s**t now.” New information on SINGLE the incident has come out of the lawsuit, including the fact that, after pulling Guerrero to the ground and Cage separating them, Vince attacked another woman who ran from the hotel. The suit also states that Neil was “severely intoxicated and/or under the influence of powerful drug(s)”. The suit also states that, the next morning, Guerrero woke very sore and went to the Desert Springs Emergency Room where she was diagnosed with “back sprain or strain; neck sprain or strain and sacral contusion due to physical assault.” She was also later found to have a “fractured coccyx [tail bone] and severed left hip injury”. Guerrero is seeking $75,000 for “substantial medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.” Neil is scheduled in court on July 27.

Liam Payne going solo with new record deal

Liam Payne is preparing to officially embark on a solo career after signing a new contract with Capitol Records UK. The One Direction star announced the news to fans on Twitter.com on Thursday (21Jul16). “Happy to have signed to @CapitolUK,” he writes. “They have an amazing history of artists, I hope I can follow in their footsteps.” “One direction will always be my home and family but I’m very excited to see what this chapter brings,” he adds. The news comes after Liam’s bandmate Harry Styles reportedly signed an $80 million (£60.6 million) contract with Columbia Records - the same label behind the group - in June (16). Since One Direction went on hiatus in late 2015, the boys have been working on their own projects. Harry has been forging an acting career, after landing a role in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, a World War II drama about the evacuation of Allied troops from French beaches in 1940, Louis Tomlinson is working on his record label and looking after son Freddie, and Niall Horan has been working on his golf management agency. Niall is also eyeing up a solo career, according to reports, with Simon Cowell’s label Syco and One Direction’s management Modest. Liam has been writing his own music and earlier this year (16), his collaboration with rappers Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa leaked online. Fans were quick to assume the song,

which was reportedly one of five tracks Liam, Juicy and producer TM88 had worked on together, was the British singer’s debut solo single. However, he was LABEL quick to take to his social media accounts to set the record straight. Liam is also being kept busy with his personal life and romance with Cheryl FernandezVersini. Meanwhile, Zayn Malik was the first member of the group to go solo after leaving the band last year (15), and he has enjoyed a huge amount of success with singles including Pillowtalk and Like I Would.

Britney Spears wants to duet with Selena Gomez

Britney Spears has reached out to Selena Gomez to propose the idea of a proper duet. The two pop stars recently joined forces with the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Pink, Gwen Stefani, and Mary J. Blige for charity track Hands, which was released earlier this month (Jul16) to raise funds for those affected by the mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, in June (16). Selena made reference to the star-studded collaboration in a Snapchat video on Tuesday (19Jul16), telling fans, “Well babe, technically I have done a duet with Britney. (It’s) called Hands, buy it.” The clip was later shared on Twitter on a Gomez fan account, and it caught the eye of Britney herself on Thursday (21Jul16), who decided to propose the idea of actually hitting the studio together in the near future. “Technically, yes,” the Toxic hitmaker responded to Selena, before adding, “But when are we working on our actual duet @selenagomez?” The tweet sent fans into a frenzy, and while the Come and Get It singer has yet to publicly reply to Britney’s invite, she is sure to be excited about the idea of working with her childhood pop idol. Selena has made no secret about her admiration for Spears. In an interview with Marie Claire magazine earlier this year (16), she revealed, “My first concert was Britney Spears. First CD I ever bought as well, ...Baby One More Time.” “We were all the way up in the nosebleeds where I was living my life, it was so fun,” the 23-year-old gushed. Hands is not the first time Selena has technically worked with Spears her 2011 track Whiplash was actually co-written by Britney, but was passed on to Gomez after it failed to make the cut for her 2008 album, Circus.

Maren Morris is truly the hot new artist on the block. After a huge hit like “My Church”, she’s taking her new “80’s Mercedes” (Columbia Nashville) out for a Summer drive and our programmers are following along. Blake Shelton may have a lot going on in his personal life but that hasn’t affected his ability to keep breaking hit after hit. His new “She’s Got A Way With Words” (WB) is fast becoming a real favorite among our Country stations. When you combine his music history along with his stint on The Voice (NBC) and his new rock star gal pal, good things keep happening for Blake. Tim McGraw has a solid record on his hands. “How I’ll Always Be” (Big Machine/Universal) is the perfect summer track and should continue to add to his massive musical fortunes. One of my favorite songs for the Summer of 2016 has to be the new Thomas Rhett. I’ve been just loving his “Vacation” (Valory Music/Universal) song so much that I want to go and take one. Darius Rucker is back at it and make no mistake about it. He’s got the track “If I Told You” (Capitol Nashville) out and about and our panel is all over this one big time. Brett Eldredge has become one popular dude as of late. His new release of “Wanna Be That Song” (Atlantic Nashville) should continue to take him to bigger and better places. Those fun loving and ever popular Florida Georgia Line boys have taken another winner to the top of the charts. “H.O.L.Y.” (Big Machine/Universal) is the jam that I’m talking about and it’s so great to see the boys have kept their streak of hits alive and well. Chuck Murphy has a new masterpiece on his hands and if you don’t believe me just take a look at this week’s Country charts. His new “Cow Girls” (One West Music) is ever so great and smooth and what a perfect track for this time of year. Eileen Carey has a new gem on her hands and we just love it. “In The Air” (Rolley Coaster) is the cut that you need to get on right away (if you’re not already on it). Eileen is also supporting the new single with some live performing dates that are quite impressive. Juliana Lawrence is rocking our Country charts. “Heels On Wheels” (Star 1/ MTS) is the jam that I’m talking about but find out for yourself and spin it. The Sarah Dunn Band are on the move and taking their new “Dirty” (Reznam) out for a spin to impressive results. I’m also happy to report that Willi Dakota is taking things to a higher level thanks in part to the single “Montana Sky” (Mega International) that is ever so good. John Ratliff and his band Receptacle have a crossover hit on their hands. “Me Too” is the one that keeps lighting up the phones and we’re so proud for John and company. Tim Hadler has had an amazing run with his is brilliant “Running Around” and this recent multiple NMA nominee thanks his fans for all they have been doing. Denny Strickland has got a good thing going with “Get A Grip” so get ready to build the spins for this gem. Amy Rose is rocking Country with the single “Put A Lime In It” (WRM/OTM). Ross Kennedy is also building strong with “Blue Jeans And Heels” (Ind) so you may want to spend a little more time with that track. The Stickers are out and about with the song “Ain’t Nothin’Better” (Woderick Music) that deserves your immediate attention. Tucker Beathard has a real winner on his hands that really deserves much more support. His fun loving “Rock On” (Big Machine/Universal) should be at the top of everybody’s list. The ever amazing Pat Boone has a new song out at Country this week that deserves special attention. “Part of America Died Today” (The Gold Label) tells of a recent and powerful story that deserves special care. The song was brought to our attention from music industry icon Mike Borchetta and we really thank him for that. If you happen to be in the Nashville area over the next few weeks please join me over at Legends Corner at 5th and Broadway Friday, Saturday and Sunday’s from three to six in the afternoon. I’d love to sing a song with you and buy you a beer. Or better yet, you can buy me one. I’ll have more Country news for you next time right here my good people.

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 - JULY 22, 2016

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.

As the leading radio publication throughout the world, New Music Weekly covers a lot of music events. We gather with artists and bands during their tours around the U.S. and celebrate with them at festivals and music industry functions. It’s important that we are true to our brand and stay in the forefront of the music industry and every once and awhile a product is made which quickly becomes a necessity to businesses doing the same. E-Z UP offers a professional shelter canopy which is considered the “Best in Class” in portable instant shelters. We have all purchased these style canopy pop ups for tail gating at sporting events, special music concerts or a bit of extra shade at the family BBQ only to have them bend during the lengthy setup process or blow away in the wind with the fist gust. We have found that the E-Z UP canopies are far from these poorly manufactured canopies purchased at your local chain store. E-Z UP Instant Shelter® is made from a heavy-duty high carbon steel framework, solid construction and professional grade composite polyester fabric top making it the popular choice when quality, durability and innovation matter. Let’s not forget the option to personalize your own shelter by choosing from 25 Top colors and 8 Frame colors to match your brand, organization, team or personality. The Eclipse™. Whether we use our E-Z UP for one of our many office party picnics or at one of the many music functions we attend throughout the entire year, we know we can always count on our E-Z UP to be there hassle free. Sit back and enjoy watching others fight the wind with their toy tents, but do lend them a hand and offer them a cool drink. They’re gonna need it after their struggle with those cheap canopies. We are done with the cheap canopies. We are thrilled to have E-Z UP as a part of our family for years to come. We like to say “The shade feels better under our E-Z UP”.
