THE CHART BREAKERS OF SUMMER Those hot August nights are most certainly in full force especially when it comes to the music in the Summer of 2015. We can’t remember a time when there were so many releases during one quarter from Mainstream to Country and it shows us that the music industry is as hot as ever. In fact, if you are an artist or band and appear on any chart in the USA, consider yourself lucky as the competition has been fierce. During this issue we will focus on the many chart-makers and chart-breakers that are setting the world on fire during this musically hot time of year. As in many summers past there are always artists that try to capitalize on this time of year as they should. Demi Lovato got a late start but that has not stopped her “Cool For the Summer” from becoming one of the fastest rising songs of the sunny season. Radio can’t seem to figure out what to do with Maroon 5 and their “This Summers Gonna Hurt Like A…” but with Adam Levine being as hot as he is right now many radio programmers just suck it up and run with it. We have spoken to music and program directors in the smaller markets that won’t touch this single. Although not using the word Summer in its title, the Omi single “Cheerleader” continues to move to the top of the Mainstream charts in record time with its summer feel. The Big Machine label group can look back to the Summer of 2015 as one of pure magic. With their core flagship artist in Taylor Swift, they have dominated mainstream radio with a boatload of #1 singles. That has also opened the door for others on their roaster such as Sam Hunt who now finds himself crossing other formats with his “Take Your Time” single. When you throw in what they have been doing in Country from Florida-Georgia Line, Frankie Ballard to Tim McGraw (among others) it has been a very powerful run for Scott Borchetta and company. Their staff deserves a nice paid vacation and maybe they can get Taylor Swift to pay for it. Just when you thought there might be a break in all this activity, Country artists abound with new releases, almost one after the other. Just this week alone we’ve seen new singles from Luke Bryan, Tim McGraw and Blake Shelton to name a few at the superstar level and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. With touring in full swing and music at an all-time high it has really been quite a money generating time of year. In this issue all you have to do is take a look at our charts to see just what we are talking about. Not only does music abound with the major labels and their artists, the music from the independent artists and labels is at an all-time high as well. Many programmers find that they have to pick and choose very carefully about what goes in and what stays out and for many this is a nice change of pace. Programmers had been holding on to a lot of songs in their current category and now many are having to throw even some of the hits into re-current just to make some room. Regardless of the overflow, it’s really created quite a rather healthy environment. The music is quite varied and it’s great to see many artists actually crossing formats. We saw this recently with Little Big Town, Sam Hunt to Florida Georgia Line, among a few and this trend can only be of value to both the listener and the artist. Music producers have had to plan their mixes a bit more carefully to accommodate the various format and to allow for the crossover activity to take place. So far looking back to the 2015 year in music, it might come down to “the year the music refused to die”.

“Should’ve Been Us” (Capitol) is the latest smash hit from rising pop star Tori Kelly. Born Victoria Loren “Tori” Kelly on December 14, 1992 Kelly was grew up in Wildomar, California. Her father is Jamaican and half Puerto Rican, while her mother is of Irish and German descent. She was exposed at an early age to a variety of music by her parents. “I give them a lot of credit for just playing all different genres, and no genre was off limits.” In 2004, she made an appearance on America’s Most Talented Kids, singing Christina Aguilera’s “Keep on Singin’ My Song” and won, beating out musician Hunter Hayes. She made a second appearance on the show in the Tournament of Champions, but lost to Antonio Pontarelli, a rock musician. At the age of twelve, Kelly was offered a major record deal which she accepted. She began posting videos to YouTube in 2007, at age 14. The first video she uploaded was a cover of John Wesley Work, Jr.’s “Go Tell It On The Mountain”, which she originally performed in December 2004. She was signed to Geffen Records at the age of 12 but because of conflicting ideas, it was mutually agreed for Tori to be released. Kelly gained recognition for her acoustic cover with fellow YouTuber Angie Girl of Frank Ocean’s “Thinkin Bout You” in 2012. When later asked about her first YouTube cover she said, “It was just me in my bedroom, it was “The Only Exception” by Paramore and it wasn’t even my own guitar. I knew like...three chords”. Kelly later auditioned for Season 9 of American Idol in Denver, Colorado and made it through to Hollywood week but did not reach the “Top 24. In 2012, she independently released her first EP that she produced, wrote, and mixed herself, titled Handmade Songs By Tori Kelly. The following year, Scooter Braun became her manager and introduced her to Capitol Records, with whom she signed in September. Kelly’s second EP Foreword came out in October 2013 as her first major label release. On June 23, 2015, Kelly’s debut album, Unbreakable Smile, was released. The lead single, “Nobody Love”, was released in the spring and became her first Billboard Hot 100. Now she’s off a running hit after hit and we’re proud to feature Tori Kelly as this week’s rock star cover girl. 3

The Weeknd has one of the fastest rising singles during the summer of 2015. His stellar “Can’t Feel My Face” (Universal Republic) has made some rather bold and beautiful moves over the past few weeks and it looks like back to back #1 for this rising pop star. Also getting raves from our music and program directors is the band 30 Seconds To Mars. Our panel is all over their new “Do or Die” (In2une Music) in a very big way. The band has huge potential and this single will no doubt add more fuel to their fire. We’ll see how it all plays out in the coming week but so far so very good. Omi has come from nowhere to become the artist to beat in the summer of 2015. He is definitely considered a “chart-breaker” as his “Cheerleader” (Ultra) is fast becoming a pop anthem. Expect some bigger and better things to come from Omi. MKTO are getting back on track with a mainstream winner. “Bad Girls” (Columbia) took a little time to take hold but now that it’s “on the move” the track is picking up spin increases big time. Make sure to add this to your list of favorites and you will be so very glad that you did. Tori Kelly has a good thing going and make no mistake about it. Her new “Should’ve Been Us” (Silent/Capitol) is fast becoming a real favorite at the Top40 format and it’s of no surprise to us here at NMW. We first brought you the information about Tori right here in the column and we’re so happy to see that she didn’t let us down. I have to say that I’m quite impressed with the new Selena Gomez track featuring Asap Rocky. “Good For You” (Interscope) is such a pleasant surprise to many of us and this mix really shows us the new bold direction that Selena has chosen. It should serve her well in the months and year to come. The Meghan Trainor pairing with John Legend appears to be paying off big time. “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” (Epic) is one of her very best and adding the Legend isn’t hurting one bit. If you can throw his beautiful wife into the mix all the better. R City has teamed up with Adam Levine for one of the best surprises of the summer. If you want to talk Chart-Breaker look no further than their “Locked Away” (Kemosabe/RCA) single that is taking radio by storm. I have a feeling that this new dynamic duo will take this magical track all the way to the top of the charts but only time will tell on that one. Skrillex has joined forces with Diplo and the always interesting Justin Bieber for a song that will not go away. “Where Are You Now” (OWSLA/ Mad Decent/Atlantic) has been floating around the charts for months now and it seems to be hanging in there. The triple label behind this is pulling out all the stops and it appears to be paying off. Silento is another artist that has been fighting the good fight and patience is helping in a very big way. The track “Watch Me” (Bolo/Capitol) is the gem that we are talking about and this is a very catchy song that you should really spend some time on. Flaunt is having quite the run with their “National Anthem” (Anticodon) single. A track that started right here is now getting spins and action on the Mediabase/Billboard stations and remember that you heard about them first right here. Bill Curreri is also getting some major action for his new single. “With Lydia” (BCR) a song that he wrote for his long-time girlfriend, is moving to the top of the charts and in record time. Brandy Moss Scott is continuing he #1 ways as her indie released “Bye, Bye Baby” (Heavenly Tunes) is the one to beat. Mirage Box is “on fire” with their latest single. “Last Beautiful Woman” (Growlyman Endeavors) & what a gem this one is. Tom MacLear is also rocking the charts with his new “Unapproachable” (Meg) that is out of this world. I’ll have more for you on the biggest Top40 Chart-Breakers on the music planet next time.

Don Henley is back at the AC format and he’s always welcomed with open arms. His new “Take A Picture Of This” (Capitol) is one of the best tracks coming from him & we can see that radio is as excited about this one as we are. Expect some big things ahead for Don Henley on this great new release. The pairing of R City with Adam Levine has turned into quite a winning combination. “Locked Away” (Kemosabe/RCA) is the cut that many of our music and program directors just love and it’s no surprise to us. This is an excellent single that really deserves your special attention. Sam Hunt has found a new home at mainstream radio. This Country star is getting raves at other formats for his “Take Your Time” (MCA Nashville) and that seems to be about right. The track is an excellent single and is getting the attention across formats that it so deserves. Selena Gomez has teamed up with Asap Rocky for a real summer gem. ”Good For You” (Interscope) is the single that we are talking about and this shows just how much Selena has grown as a recording artist in such a short time. Rachel Platten has a good thing going and make no mistake about that. Her debut single “Fight Song” (Columbia) is fast becoming an anthem at AC radio and that’s seems quite appropriate considering just how many spins this young artist has under her belt so far. The multi talented trio of Skrillex, Diplo and Justin Bieber has turned into a big time radio hit. “Where Are You Now” (OWSLA/Mad Decent/Atlantic) is the one that seems to be at the top of many radio programmers playlists. U2 has a new single out at radio and that’s always a good thing. “Song For Someone” (Interscope) is the track that I’m talking about and it’s always a good thing to have this iconic band on radio in any format. The new team of David Guetta, Nicki Minaj & Afrojack has turned into a magical experience. “Hey Mama” (Parlophone/Atlantic) is so catchy that I can’t get it out of my head. Andrew McMahon In Wilderness is taking his “Cecilia And The Satellite” (Vanguard) to new heights and what a gem this song is. Leon Bridges is getting lots of attention at the format thanks to his “Coming Home” (Columbia) single and give that one a few spins for sure. Bob Malone is making big moves with “Certain Distance” (Delta Moon). Recording artist Moe is also receiving raves for “Standing Ovation” (AP Music). The Belfuries are also doing quite well with “Loving Arms” (Moe And Sal). Bill Curreri has been having a stellar run and the format. His latest “With Lydia” (BCR) is a real favorite here among our programmers. Mirage Box is having an amazing run with their latest single. “Last Beautiful Woman” (Growlyman Endeavors). It has been on fire and you just have to check the back-page of this issue to find out a bit more about this amazing act from the Florida area. Flaunt has one of the best singles out to date. “National Anthem” (Anticodon) is becoming quite the summer anthem and for good reason - it’s an amazing track. Tom MacLear has a good thing going and make no mistake about that. His brilliant “Unapproachable” (Meg) is becoming one of the biggest summer hits and we’re so thrilled for him and his stellar team. Royalush are back with a real gem. “Shot For America” (High School) is their latest and what a great track this is and radio agrees. Brandy Moss Scott has had a record setting week of #1 action for her “Bye, Bye Baby” and what a gem this single has turned out to be. Chuck Murphy and his new “How Many Times” (One West) is the record to watch for my friends. This artist is the “real deal”. All of the above deserve your immediate attention as they are true Chart-Breakers for 2015 so far, I’ll have more for you next time on the greatest hits at AC radio. Enjoy the rest for this amazing summer and I’ll see you for our Fall Music Preview.

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.

Rodgers and Ronson co-produced.

Bieber’s album release date revealed?

Justin Bieber will reportedly be selling his highly anticipated new LP just a few months from now. The 21year-old heartthrob hasn’t released a new album since his 2012 offering Believe hit the shelves. Rumours surfaced on Tuesday Justin’s fourth studio album is due to be released ahead of America’s Thanksgiving holiday and sources have confirmed to Billboard the debut date has been set at November 13. Justin has been teasing fans about new music in the past few weeks, enlisting famous friends like Dr. Dre, Ed Sheeran, Little Mix, Big Sean, Mariah Carey, Kylie Jenner and Ashley Benson to promote his forthcoming single What Do You Mean, which hits shelves on August 28. Justin debuted What Do You Mean at the iHeartMedia Music Summit earlier this month. It seems as if he took a page out of the book of Skrillex and Diplo, who he recently collaborated with on their Jack Ü song Where Are Ü Now, as What Do You Mean has a dance club vibe to it. While speaking on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show last month Just referred to the track as having an ‘uptempo and ‘summery’ type of vibe. On Monday Justin made it clear he is all about business right now, as the star is spending every moment he can perfecting the sounds on his upcoming offering. ‘I’m in the studio finishing this album,’ he wrote on Twitter. While speaking to the crowd at the iHeartMedia Music Summit, the Baby hitmaker ensured fans will not be disappointed with his new volume of work. ‘My music is very awesome, actually. I’ve been working really hard on it,’ he emphasised. ‘I’ve been taking my time. I haven’t put out an album in over three years.’ Justin seems to be impressing his colleagues with new music, as the star’s friend Ariana Grande gushed over the track while promoting it on her social media account.

Aretha Franklin cancels Vegas show

following her lengthy journey from Detroit to the West Coast for the latest performance. ‘I thank all of my fans, friends and supporters who bought tickets. I hope to see you all soon,’ Aretha said in the statement. The performance will be rescheduled. Aretha has been kept busy in recent weeks with her hectic schedule, which has seen her perform concerts in California cities Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and Oakland. Her show in Oakland on Monday at the Oracle Arena marked her return to the Bay area for the first time in close to 40 years. During the show, an emotional Aretha thanked fans for their support as she continued to wow crowds with her stellar talent. “I just want to say what a treat it’s been for me to come back to Oakland after all these years,” Franklin told the audience. “What a wonderful time we had tonight.” It remains to be seen whether or not Aretha will be able to overcome her exhaustion to perform at her next scheduled concert in her childhood hometown of Detroit on August 22. Aretha released her latest album, Aretha Sings the Great Diva Classics, back in October 2014. The record includes covers of tracks by stars including Alicia Keys, Adele and Etta James. “I absolutely loved doing it,’ Aretha told Billboard.com of laying down the album. ‘I had a real ball. I had a good time.’

Busta Rhymes’ ‘bite threat to fans’

Busta Rhymes is under investigation after allegedly threatening fans, it has been claimed. TMZ reports that the Gimme Some More rapper is being accused of threatening to slap two female fans following the BET Awards in June. According to the outlet one of the women, Kim Simpson, filed a police report after the 43-year-old got nasty when they accidentally bumped into him on the dance floor. Kim says they apologised but Busta turned on them and allegedly said: ‘I’ll bite you and not that kinda bite’ if they did it again. To make matters worse, they crossed paths with the star again when they were trying to get a picture of reality star Deelishis and Busta was caught in the flashlight. ‘Don’t make me slap you’ he reportedly said before charging at them, only to be stopped by security. The outlet added that law enforcement officers are trying to locate Busta to interview him about the incident. His rep has been contacted for a response on the claims but has yet to make a comment. It’s been a tumultuous month for the hip-hop star after he was arrested last week for allegedly throwing protein powder at a gym worker. Busta was apparently working out at Steel Gym on West 23rd Street in New York City when he is believed to have become embroiled in an argument with the employee. It resulted

in him apparently hurling a 17-ounce container of protein drink at the worker, hitting them on the back of the head with the bottle. ‘This is another attempt to take advantage of Busta’s celebrity status,’ his attorney Scott Leemon told TMZ, adding the allegations are “a bunch of bull”. ‘It’s stupid,’ Busta added to New York Daily News. ‘It’s ridiculous; it was literally a bottle of Muscle Milk.’

Bryan Adams gets Jeff Lynne to produce album

Bryan Adams will release his 13th studio album, Get Up, in October. Produced by Jeff Lynne of ELO and the Traveling Wilburys, Adams co-wrote the new songs with long-time collaborator Jim Vallance. It includes the fast and furious up-tempo tracks such as lead song Brand New Day, You Belong To Me and Thunderbolt, to the gentler songs such as Don’t Even Try and We Did It All, plus the alternative Adams-produced acoustic versions, highlighting Adams’ unique voice and depth. Adams said of the album ‘It came together quite organically song by song, working with Jeff producing over the past couple of years whenever he had time. It was a great partnership as it gave me plenty of time to write the songs, most of which are a collaboration with Jim Vallance. We all worked primarily over the internet from Canada, Europe and LA, sending demos and parts of songs until we got it right. ‘There is a carefree feeling about this album and in many ways it is the album I wish I’d been able to make 25 years ago.’ Lynne added ‘I’ve always been a big fan of Bryan so getting to work with him was a great pleasure. Bryan would send me a demo across the internet, then I would play most of the instruments to make a finished backing track and send it back to him in England. There he would put the lead vocal on to the song and send it back to me in California, 5,400 miles apart! And it’s turned out to be a rockin’ album!’

Katy Perry writing Christmas album?

Katy Perry may be wishing fans a happy holiday by releasing Christmas tunes. The 30-year-old songstress has released four studio albums to date, which were all comprised of pop records. But it seems Katy is interested in taking on a new musical challenge by penning tracks with Santa in mind. ‘When your derp squad writes a Christmas song in August,’ she wrote on Monday in an Instagram caption attached to a video of four masked men swiveling in chairs after focusing their attention on music studio equipment. Katy ended the caption by inserting Christmas tree emojis and a musical note glyph into the message. Katy has dazzled fans by singing

ole, independent rights management company, has expanded its deal with renowned Grammy Awardwinning super-producer, songwriter, and solo artist Timbaland from administration to a worldwide co-publishing agreement. Timbaland and ole began working together in 2012, and the relationship has progressively expanded to include not only Tim’s evergrowing catalog of hits but also an expanding roster of new songwriting talent through the ole-Bluestone publishing co-venture. The co-venture was launched in 2013 to discover and develop new songwriters.

The Firework songstress has also sung an acoustic version of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. Katy seems to have been hinting about her yuletide-inspired music for quite a few days now. On August 7 she joked about a studio incident which almost saw the star fall flat on her face. ‘Ya know yer sanging good when ya lose yer balance & fall over in the vocal booth (sic),’ she wrote on Twitter, closing the tweet off with Christmas tree, prayer and musical notes emojis. Katy has a lot of professional activity going on this Christmas season, as she was recently announced as the new face of H&M’s 2015 Holiday ads. Her ads will debut in November and one shot released sees Katy peeking out from underneath a black and white snowflake jumper with a big grin on her face, with a red bow in her hair adding to the festive vibe.

herself onstage in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, one of the cities she is performing in as part of her The Pinkprint Tour series of concerts. In the clip, which she shared on Twitter, Nicki asked the audience to ‘make some noise for my baby father’, seemingly alluding to her beau Meek Mill. Although fans were sent into a tizzy thinking she is pregnant, when asked about the rumours online, Nicki shared crying laughing face emojis in response. This isn’t the first time fans have misconstrued what she and Meek Mill have said about the happenings in their relationship. Rumours first began circulating they might be engaged after Nicki shared a photo of her and Meek embracing one another via Instagram on Tuesday April 14. It seemed like a normal couple-in-love photograph, but that image was particularly striking because Nicki is seen donning a huge, gleaming band on her left ring finger.

Lovato: I curse a lot!

Prince will release his new album through TIDAL, the star confirmed. The Purple Rain singer’s new record HITNRUN reaches audiences in September. And on Friday the 57-year-old revealed it would be solely available through Jay Z’s music streaming service. ‘After one meeting, it was obvious that Jay Z and the team he has assembled at TIDAL recognise and applaud the effort that real musicians put into their craft to achieve the very best they can at this pivotal time in the music industry,” he said in a statement, according to the New York Daily News. “Secondly, TIDAL have honoured us with a non-restrictive arrangement that once again allows us to continue making art in the fashion we’ve grown accustomed to and we’re extremely grateful for their generous support.’ Prince has shown his allegiance to TIDAL already this year, when he removed all his music from other streaming sites except Jay Z’s company and Google Play. He also allowed TIDAL to stream the first hour of his RALLY 4 PEACE concert in Baltimore in May. “In the tech-savvy, real-time world we all live in today, everything is faster,” he continued. “From its conception and that one and only meeting, HITNRUN took about 90 days to prepare its release. If that’s what freedom feels like, HITNRUN is what it sounds like.” Jay Z also shared his delight at having the legendary singer agree to work with TIDAL. ‘Prince has always been a visionary, a free-thinker. We’re honoured to offer his breadth of work, 1999, Purple Rain, etc., music that has inspired so many, on TIDAL. We’re also excited to be the home for his new upcoming album, HITNRUN,’ he said. ‘Both Prince and TIDAL share the belief that all creatives should have the opportunity to speak directly to those that love and support them. This partnership with Prince represents TIDAL’s philosophy in its truest form, a 1 to 1 connection and direct delivery of artistry to the world.”

Demi Lovato wasn’t trying to be provocative by swearing on her latest single. The 22-year-old former Disney star uses some bad language on her fresh track Cool For The Summer. But Demi insists it wasn’t to push people’s buttons, it just felt natural for her to include the words. ‘I curse a lot!’ she told News.com.au. ‘The fact I had never cursed in my music was a small example of how I was trying to please parents [of young fans] and be a different woman for them. But if I am feeling like swearing, or wearing certain outfits, I shouldn’t be tied to what they want or expect, it’s just fun.’ Demi has faced criticism recently for her latest cover shoot with Cosmopolitan magazine. In the main shot, the Skyscraper singer is seen in a silver sequin mini dress which features a deep slit at the front and sides showcasing her cleavage. But once again, Demi came out fighting, claiming that the pictures captured her at her most confident after years of struggling with bulimia, self harm and substance abuse issues. ‘What these individuals who are protesting don’t understand is that for the first time in a long time I feel incredibly EMPOWERED and the MOST BEAUTIFUL I’ve ever felt on this magazine,’ she wrote on Twitter on August 6. ‘It’s so liberating to be able to show the world how confident a woman can be once she learns to love herself. It took soul searching and a bit of time before I learned to embrace my body therefore I could not have been more excited to do this shoot. I think what’s more important is showing women there’s NOTHING WRONG with embracing their bodies and sexuality. I am confident in my own skin and A PROUD @COSMOPOLITAN COVER GIRL! (sic)’

Nicki Minaj: It’s just shadow people!

The Delta Saints have released their new album “Bones” recently. Bones was produced, engineered and mixed by Third Man Records alum, Eddie Spear who has assisted on projects with Jack White, Arctic Monkeys and Neil Young to name a few. Be sure to catch them at Nashville’s Live on the Green @ Public Square Park on September 3 at 7:45pm (cst)! 22

Nicki Minaj has dismissed baby bump speculation as an example of photographic shadow play. The 32year-old Anaconda rapper shared photographs of herself donning a cute grey crop top and matching skirt while standing next to boyfriend Meek Mill. In some of these images it appears as if a baby bump is growing beneath her outfit and a few fans accused her of Photoshopping the image because it featured an oddly bent limb. ‘Lol why did I actually text @grizzleemusic about this? yall so damn crazy. I was like we don’t need to do that (sic),’ Nicki wrote in a caption on Instagram Sunday, which was attached to a screenshot of a text message she had with Grizz Lee, an artist and photographer. The musician’s text exchange with Grizz was pretty straight forward, as she asked him if he Photoshopped the image, he said no and insisted the strange womb bump and bent leg was ‘just shadow’. On Saturday Nicki shared a video clip of

Cyrus: Fame doesn’t make you happy

Miley Cyrus believes fame doesn’t make a person happy. The Wrecking Ball singer has been in the limelight since she was a young teenager thanks to her starring role on Hannah Montana. Since then she has gone on to find further success with hit records and movie roles. But the 22-year-old insists notoriety and fame is not all it’s cracked up to be. ‘People in this industry think, I just gotta keep getting more money, and I’m like, What are you getting more money for? You probably couldn’t even spend it all in this lifetime,’ she said to the US edition of Marie Claire. ‘People get more famous, so that they can make their brand more famous, so that they can sell more sh*t, so that they can make more money. It’s a never-ending cycle. Getting more money, having more hits, being the lead in the movie-those things might NMW - AUGUST 21, 2015

Music City has been abuzz over a bold and artistic new addition to the local landscape. Recently, the colorful “Freak Soul” mural appeared on an exterior wall of music venue, The Basement East. Designed by artist Andee Rudloff, the mural supports the release of a song by the same name, and its creation is part of a fun new music video available now on You Tube from songwriter, Rebecca Moreland who appears in the video. Singer/songwriter, Moreland is a Texas-born transplant to Nashville. She is one of the many talented artists making music outside of the Country realm. Her upbeat “Freak Soul” proclaims a timely message: celebrate your uniqueness and appreciate differences. Following a formal gathering at ASCAP, rising new artist Kelsea Ballerini celebrated her first GOLD-selling, #1 single “Love Me Like You Mean It” with friends, family and members of the music industry recently under a white-tented soiree hosted by label Black River Entertainment. Guests toasted with Soulshine pizza - which Ballerini and co-writers Forest Glen Whitehead, Josh Kerr and Lance Carpenter were eating as they wrote the record-breaking smash - and Ballerini treated the crowd to a pop up acoustic performance of songs from her debut album THE FIRST TIME, including “Love Me Like You Mean It” and catchy new single “Dibs.”

After a successful run with single, “Back to Reality”, country newcomer is back with follow-up single, “Baby What Ya Doing”. Produced and co-written by Kent Wells (Dolly Parton), the light, infectious tune nails down a topic many struggle to put to words. “’Baby What Ya Doing’ is a fun, flirty song that represents everything you feel in an everyday, ordinary moment with someone you’re falling for - but can’t necessarily find the words for,” says Martin. “I wrote this song with the hopes of capturing that, and giving some tangibility to something everyone has felt at one point or another!” Martin co-wrote “Baby What Ya Doing” - as well as the other ten tracks on new album, “Find My Melody”.

stimulate you, but they don’t make you happy. I’ve experienced it all already, and I’m telling you firsthand, it doesn’t.” Miley has become increasingly provocative as she’s got older, regularly posing for magazines topless as well as putting on overtly sexual performances. But the star insists she does it to try and fly in the face of the sexism that exists in the industry. ‘There is so much sexism, ageism, you name it,’ she admitted. ‘Kendrick Lamar sings about LSD and he’s cool. I do it and I’m a druggie w***e.” While Miley is unapologetic for her behaviour, she does question how she is seen as a poor role model when Taylor Swift can make a video like Bad Blood and still be seen in a positive light. ‘I don’t get the violence revenge thing. That’s supposed to be a good example?’ she queried. ‘And I’m a bad role model because I’m running around with my t*tties out? I’m not sure how t*tties are worse than guns.”

TJ Jackson: Paris’ boyfriend is a good kid

TJ Jackson says Paris Jackson’s boyfriend Chester Castellaw treats her well. The 17-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson has been dating the 18-yearold Real So Cal soccer player for a number of months. The young couple made their red carpet debut in May and TJ, who is co-guardian of the teen along with their grandmother Katherine, is happy with her choice of beau. ‘I approve of him,” he told ET Online. “No one’s perfect, but he’s a good boy, so I approve of him... He treats her well. She’s happy.” But that doesn’t mean that TJ lets Paris do whatever she wants. The 37-yearold makes sure to keep a close eye on what the pair get up to. ‘It depends on which day you ask me,” he added. “He’s a good kid. He’s an ambitious kid, you know. He’s a teenage boy, so like any parent, guardian, step-parent or adopted parent, you gotta keep an eye on him. I was a young man too once, so I keep a close eye of him.” As well as discussing Paris’ love life, TJ and his brothers Taryll and Taj, who are in a band called 3T, gave an update on their grandfather Joe Jackson. The 87-yearold suffered a stroke on his birthday while in Brazil last month. “He’s doing better,” Taj added. “It’s hard because [at] a certain age you start [to] cherish all the times that you have with them and stuff like that.He’s just such an important point to this family as well. I sometimes think he doesn’t get the credit that he deserves, but I’m so thankful for what he did for our family.”

Hilary Duff: Mum bullying is isolating

Hilary Duff found becoming a mother very isolating. The 27-year-old has son Luca, three, with estranged husband Mike Comrie. While the singer and actress loves being a parent, the criticism she’s felt from her peers has been hard to take at times. ‘Even before you have your baby, you can start feeling the judgment,” she explained to ET Online. “And, you know, becoming a mother and that whole process is so special and so magical really, but it’s also very isolating.” Hilary has joined forces with her older sister Haylie, 30, who welcomed her first daughter Ryan Ava in May, to try and combat mother-to-mother bullying. They have become part of the Sisterhood of Motherhood campaign by Similac, which produces baby products including formula. The campaign aims to bring mothers together without judging each other. Hilary recalled to the outlet some of the harshest criticisms she faced from others. ‘The biggest things that stand out for me was choosing to have an epidural. I felt very judged by some people,” she admits. “Also, once I had breastfed for a certain amount of time and I was starting to work and starting 24

to supplement with formula, I felt judged then.” The former Lizzie McGuire star finds it strange that new mothers seem to be expected to know exactly what to do at all times. “I think a lot of the times you feel like you should have all the answers and you feel like you should know how to do everything and nothing should go wrong,” she added. “You put so much pressure on yourself, and it’s really kind of a lonely place to be. So I think women and families need to boost each other up instead of, you know, bullying one another.” The sisters are very close, and they dream of one day being pregnant at the same time. ‘We’d still like to do it together at some point,” she laughed. “Try to time that out right.”

Spice Girls ‘staging world tour’

The Spice Girls are reportedly getting ready to reform. The 90s group, who trail blazed the way for future girl bands, are reportedly going to embark on a world tour next year. Fans of Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, Mel B and Mel C, aka Ginger, Baby, Scary and Sporty, will mark 20 years since the release of hit single Wannabe next year with a mammoth tour, reports British newspaper The Sun. But the band’s most famous alumni, Victoria Posh Spice Beckham, will allegedly be absent from the line up, as she’s too busy with her fashion empire. ‘There is a huge demand for the Spice Girls to get back together, especially with the nostalgia around the two-decade anniversary of their first release next summer,” a source commented. ‘Mel B flew into London last month to secretly agree the plan with the other three girls. They should each make more than ten million pounds from this.’ The band previously reformed for the London 2012 Olympic games, sending fans into a frenzy. They also briefly hit the road again in 2007 and 2008 for a tour, taking in dates across America, Canada and Europe. Both times Victoria was present. “Victoria wishes the girls the best of luck. She knows the reunion is on but has declined to be involved. ‘She is far too busy running her fashion brand and looking after her family to get back on a stage,” the insider claimed. ‘She also feels that they left the stage on an amazing high with their Olympics performance and worries a reunion could tarnish their legacy.’

CMA Festival Artist Jessie Chris is pleased to share with you that her first album, Wildfire, was released earlier today and is now available on iTunes and other major music retailers. Jessie, who just turned 18 years old, began writing lyrics while being the victim of major bullying in middle school. Fast forward a couple of years and in addition to being one of the youngest performers at CMA Fest on a main stage she has opened for Chris Young, performed with Billy Ray Cyrus, and is currently in discussions with several labels. Would love to schedule a time for you to speak with her and hope you enjoy the album.

Capitol Records presented Sam Smith with a plaque commemorating four million adjusted album sales of his GRAMMY-winning debut album, In The Lonely Hour, at a ceremony at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA. The young U.K. artist made his U.S. debut at the legendary venue with two sold-out shows on December 2 and 3, 2013. By January 2015, Smith was playing sold-out concerts at New York City’s Madison Square Garden and The Forum in Los Angeles. His current North American arena/theatre tour is winding down tonight in Dallas, TX. Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash producer dies Bob Johnston, a record producer who helmed some of the most admired albums of the 60’s and 70’s from the likes of Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash and Simon and Garfunkel, died Friday in a Nashville hospice at the age of 83. The Austin Chronicle reports that a friend of the producer said “For several days before, swinging, swaying, and waving around his hands, telling stories out loud, entertaining and consuming all those that saw and heard him,’ one wrote. ‘Once he was confined to [a] bed and connected to machines, hospice only gave him a few days to live. ‘He was on morphine to help any pain he was experiencing. Bob’s wife told me he pass[ed] away peacefully. The grand master waved his magical wand for the last time, then disappeared off into the night.” Johnston’s mother and grandmother were both songwriters with mother Diane Johnston writing for Gene Autry along with the song Miles and Miles of Texas, recorded by Asleep at the Wheel. After a stint in the Navy, he began his own songwriting with his mother, composing for rockabilly star Mac Curtis. He also had a short recording career as the rockabilly artist Don Johnston. Johnston later collaborated on songs with his wife Joy Byers including the Timi Yuro hit What’s a Matter Baby and a number of songs for Elvis Presley and other artists but his real career would peak as a producer starting with a short stint with Kapp Records followed by a staff job at Columbia where he started by producing Patti Page, including her final hit Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte (1965 / #8) before being assigned to Bob Dylan. Johnston and the singer/songwriter worked together on a number of projects over the next decade or so including Highway 61 Revisited, Blonde on Blonde, John Wesley Harding and Nashville Skyline. Throughout the 60’s and 70’s, Johnston would work on some of Columbia’s biggest and most influential albums for artists including Simon & Garfunkel, Marty Robbins, Flatt and Scruggs, NMW - AUGUST 21, 2015

Multiple Grammy® Award-winning, Golden Globe Nominated and acclaimed singer and songwriter Chris Cornell will release his fifth studio album Higher Truth on Friday, September 18, 2015 via Universal Music Enterprises (UMe). Produced by Brendan O’Brien (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Neil Young), Higher Truth showcases Cornell’s constant evolution as a master songwriter, lyricist and musical craftsman – telling human stories, which transcend musical genres. Inspired by the stark arrangements of musicians like Nick Drake, Daniel Johnston and White Album-era Beatles, Cornell creates a musical universe unlike anything he has done before.

Johnny Cash, Leonard Cohen, the Byrds and others. He eventually became the head of Columbia Nashville but, dissatisfied with the way he was treated by the company, went independent in 1972. His later career continued his success as a producer with Lindisfarne, Jimmy Cliff, Joe Ely, John Mayall, Willie Nelson and Carl Perkins.

JLo: I’m bringing the glam to Vegas

Jennifer Lopez’s Vegas show is going to be a beautiful and glamorous affair. The US star has been revered for her work in both music and movies, which all makes for an ideal Las Vegas star. Jennifer’s residency will be at Planet Hollywood, kicking off on January 20 2016. “I think I’ve been preparing for this my whole life. I’m excited about going to Vegas [and] doing the kind of quintessential show that I’ve always had in my mind,” Jennifer exclaimed to ET. [I’m going to embrace] my Latin side, my fun side, and my hip-hop side. “It’s gonna have everything that I’ve been known to do over the years, and it’s gonna be a beautiful, glamorous kind of Vegas show. Something that I think people, whether you’re a fan of my music or not, would come and see and really enjoy. That’s my goal.” Before she gets to Sin City, the 46-year-old is on the hunt for the last ever winner of American Idol. The show is wrapping after 15 seasons, bowing out in 2016. Jennifer is joined by judges Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban to crown a winner, with Ryan Seacrest taking on hosting duties one last time. “I think [it’s] just a really exciting season. We’d rather have an extraordinary tight group of kids than a bunch of kind of good [ones]. OK, we’re not going for good this year - we’re going for over the top!” she smiled. On top of these two work commitments Jennifer is also filming new TV show Shades of Blue. Her work schedule may be jam packed at the moment, but the star always makes time for her boyfriend Casper Smart. The pair went through a rocky patch last year when the dancer was accused

Disclosure have established themselves as keen musical curators, and have slowly teased out featured collaborators on their sophomore album, Caracal. For their second single, brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence reunited with Sam Smith (and Jimmy Napes) for “Omen,” with the video. Disclosure initially met Smith when they penned “Latch” from their debut Settle, which has since been certified triple platinum. For “Omen,” they returned to their original setting, gathered around a piano with frequent collaborator Jimmy Napes, and wrote chords and melodies, the old-fashioned way. “It was really exciting,” says Howard. “We had three whole days to hang out with Sam and write, which are two of my favorite things to do.” Adds Guy, “It’s very traditional way of writing songs. We could do it at home. I’ll sit in the corner making a rough beat and getting all the sounds I think we’re going to use ready. Someone will think about a theme of a subject we want to talk about. It all comes together that way-and if it doesn’t come together quickly, it usually never will.” 25

Bon Jovi reveal another new track

Bon Jovi revealed another track from their upcoming album Burning Bridges on Friday with A Teardrop To the Sea. Bridges is being called a ‘fan album’ instead of a full-fledged new album. Jon Bon Jovi said of the release ‘It’s songs that weren’t finished, that were finished, a couple of new ones like the one we released as a single, We Don’t Run. ‘It’s sort of a hint as to where we’re going musically ‘ but the new album, the real new album, will be early next year.’

Vince Neil: Motley Crue is ending, not breaking up

There are only four months left in the life of Motley Crue, well, sort of but it is only the end, not . the end. When the members of the band came together in January of 2014 to announce their retirement, the took the stage with tombstones in front carrying each of their names. The members also signed a contract stating that the band will end after the last show of their final tour. That final show comes on New Year’s Eve at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and, as the date nears, Vince Neil says there is a lot of emotion. Neil talked to the Oakland Press, telling them ‘Saying goodbye in Tokyo after a couple nights there, it was like, ‘Wow, I’m never gonna be back on this stage doing this with Motley again. There’s a finality there. Or Madison Square Garden; I got a little choked up because I know I’m not gonna play Madison Square Garden with Motley Crue again.’ He did confirm, though, that New Year’s Eve is in fact the end, at least for now. ‘This is it. This is gonna be a big year, ending it with three days at the Staples Center, and saying goodbye

on New Year’s. That’ll be it. We wanted to go out on top, and we’re doing that.’ It won’t, though, be the LABEL true end of the band. They plan on releasing a CD and video of the final shows next year and have the possibility of other projects. ‘We’ve never said we were breaking up; we just said we’re not touring anymore. We’re gonna be definitely making more music together for different projects and stuff. But right now we’re really just focused on doing these shows this year and finishing with a bang.’

Derulo’s ‘airport shouting match’

Jason Derulo reportedly got into an irate shouting match at Reno-Tahoe International Airport. The 25-yearold Talk Dirty singer was travelling through Nevada on Saturday with his entourage in tow. Jason, his security and other members of his team wanted to pass through the airport quickly, as he needed to catch a flight to make his evening performance at the Pandora Summer Crush event, held at famous Los Angeles venue L.A. Live. But TMZ reports Jason and his crew were denied the opportunity to go through security faster via TSA precheck because the airport’s system was down. The fiasco escalated and apparently things got ugly. ‘Derulo and his team got pissed and started shouting at an airport employee,’ the website writes, noting the screaming match resulted in most of them being denied entry onto the flight at all. According to the outlet Jason and his team went through security anyway, even though some of them were told not to board the plane. It’s claimed police intervened soon after, as airport officers came onto the flight and removed part of the musician’s party from the aircraft. A representative for Jason informed the website the fallout started after he asked for an official employee to escort himself and his entourage to their flight since TSA precheck was down. The TSA precheck clearance allows those who qualify to pre-register before a flight, so they can skip the normal security check process on site and save minutes or potentially hours from their travel

The National Music Council honored one of the industry’s most beloved and successful impresarios recently at the 32nd Annual American Eagle Awards. Country Music Hall of Fame inductees the Oak Ridge Boys presented Jim Halsey with the award, which comes in recognition for his lifetime commitment to music and music education. Halsey was one of several honorees at the 32nd Annual American Eagle Awards, which were held this year in Nashville for the first time. NMC president Dr. David Sanders called Halsey a visionary for his decades-long commitment to music. “We have a tradition of honoring not only musical performers and writers, but also music educators, supporters of music, impresarios and producers who have shaped the music of our nation,” said Sanders. “Jim Halsey’s ability to nurture artists, and his record of guiding the careers of some of America’s greatest talents, has earned him a special place among those who have made comprehensive contributions to musical life in America.

SPINS WEEKS But since a few of his crew decided to ignore airport orders, they sent the cops onto the aircraft to remove them from the fuselage. ‘We’re told he’s currently on a private jet to make it to his show in LA tonight and they’re extremely upset with the way Southwest Airlines handled the situation,’ the website writes.

Tim McGraw is back at the format with another gem. “Top Of The World” (Big Machine/Universal) keeps Tim ahead of the pack as that Big Machine label group keeps cranking out the hits. Expect a fast rise to #1 in record time for this new red hot masterpiece. Luke Bryan is also keeping his name out there above the pack. He lets it all go with “Strip It Down” (Capitol Nashville) & this one is another excellent offering from Country’s top artist. Darius Rucker is getting quite a lot of love from our music and program directors. They are all over his new “Southern Style” (Liberty/ Capitol) as many think it’s one of the best singles he’s had out in a while. Florida Georgia Line is rocking the country world in a very big way. Their “Anything Goes” (Big Machine/Universal) is fast becoming a real favorite among our panel of radio programmers. Blake Shelton has another gem on his hands. Amidst all of his personal issues, that’s not stopping the single “Gonna” (WB/WEA) from taking off big time. I’m also happy to see that the Chris Janson single is doing so well. “Buy Me A Boat” (WB/WEA) is the gem that I’m talking about and it goes to show that patience can go a long way in breaking a hit at the country format. Chris Young is off and running with a new monster hit single. “I’m Comin’ Over” (RCA/RLG) is Chris at his very best and keep your eyes and ears on this one in the coming weeks as it takes flight. Kenny Chesney keeps rolling out the hits. “Save It For A Rainy Day” (Blue Chair/Columbia Nashville) is moving fast to the top of many of our music and program directors lists. Also getting quite a lot of traction is the latest from our good pal Ronnie Dunn. “Ain’t No Trucks In Texas” (Nash Icon) is a little something that has a lot of staying and playing power so if you are not on it yet, what are you waiting for? There’s no doubt that Jake Owen is truly the real deal. He proves that and much more as his new “Real Life” (RCA Nashville) single takes flight. This guy is really quite an amazing vocalist and there is no getting over the fact that he is where he is because of pure talent. I also have to give a shout out to Dan & Shay who are two amazingly talented artists. There new single “Nothin’ Like You” (WB/WEA) deserves some special attention and this one should be moving faster than it is – come on people let’s support some real good talent here. Bobby Wills has got a good thing going and he wants to tell the world . “Crazy Enough” (Willing Nashville) is the cut that’s getting a lot of action from our panel of music and program directors. It might be time to give this one a spin or two around the block. Recording artist Joey Canyon has a single that is doing quite well. “He’s Coming Back Home to Her For Good” (Glo Dot) is so good that you can’t put it down. Joey is a super talented guy and there’s much more to the story that we will reveal in coming issues. Chris Cox has a good thing going with a new single that is out of this world. “Honky Tonk Hellcat” (CMM) is the cut that everybody is raving about. You won’t find a harder working artist on the planet then this guy. He’s also going back to Nashville to cut more big hits and we will keep you updated on all of that and more in other issues. DA Cole has a great new single at Country radio called “Nashville” that deserves your immediate attention. Steve Garris also has a new gem entitled “I Can’t See Past Losing You” that is out of this world. In addition to now doing this great column, if you happen to be in the Nashville area please join me at Legends Corner every Friday, Saturday and Sunday 3pm to 6pm on 5th and Broadway Downtown. 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! NMW - AUGUST 21, 2015
