A FALL MUSIC PREVIEW

Many of us are looking forward to the end of Summer, especially those of us that had to deal with record heat. With hurricanes also ravaging the USA and all we can hope for is that the Fall season brings us some more temperate weather. It’s that time for the leaves to start dropping and a new climate can only be a welcome change at this point. For all of those that are suffering from the hurricanes, our thoughts and our prayers are with all of you. This has been a time for all of us to unite and bring us all closer together. It was rather amazing that through all of the drama in our weather patterns, we noticed that radio from Texas to Florida still remained quite vibrant with very few stations stopping their normal routines. In fact, radio took a lead position in providing information to its local residents and many of the music stations just did what they do best, the music continued to play on. There were a number of New Music Weekly stations and programmers affected by recent events and we are happy to report that they are all doing well as of this writing. Radio programmers from music to program directors are now taking stock of the current music from the Summer of 2017 and are now making adjustments. Out with the old and in with the new provides artists from both the major and independent arena to catch a break during the programming change over. We can also see that a good many artists are making new singles available for play and the labels are all over many of them to step it up. From major top name artists to strong independents new music marches on. Some of the top artists in the music industry that have planned well are already setting their sights on the holiday season of 2017. Many are releasing new product, singles and albums that should be in peak position by Christmas. As it takes time to build many of these tracks at radio from mainstream to country, labels and artists that plan ahead will no doubt see solid returns moving toward the end of the year. Getting a jump on the competition also plays a role in just how all of this can and will work. Taylor Swift for instance has rolled out a solid plan for her new album. Using the debut track from that project in “Look What You Made Me Do” (Big Machine/Universal), complete with a record breaking You Tube video, she is setting the template for a huge holiday season buying frenzy. Maroon 5 & SZA for instance are running away with new airplay with “What Lovers Do” (222/Interscope) that should stay on the charts for the next few months to build their already strong brand. Even solo artist Ed Sheeran is planning ahead releasing “Perfect” (Atlantic) just in time for the fall season. Justin Bieber is also setting a course for a massive holiday sales blitz. He’s teamed up with some many other artists that it’s hard to keep tract. Now joined by Blood Pop, the Bieb is taking the single “Friends” (Republic) out for a spin and radio programmers are jumping all over this one as if it were the second coming, go figure. As an artist from the independent arena you must look at all of this and make a different plan. For many that see the glut of material coming out, it might be best to plan a new strategy. If you are thinking about your follow-up single, it might be best to hold off until the start of a new year in order to find some open territory. Planning well ahead of the pack can always be a smart move, especially if you are on an independent label or you are just doing it yourself. Why fight the competition when you can find a way around it? Whether you are ready now or at the very start of 2018, New Music Weekly is here to help you launch your very next project. With the power of this publication helping to “spread the word” via news and advertising, or tracking and music services provided, we pretty much can be your onestop-shop for all your music “tools of trade”. All you have to do is look deeply into this particular issue to see all of the artists and songs represented in both the major and independent arena. That’s what we are all about.

After making her debut as a child actress in Barney & Friends, Lovato rose to prominence in 2008 when she starred in the Disney Channel television film Camp Rock and released her debut single “This Is Me” which peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100. The success of the film and its soundtrack resulted in a recording contract with Hollywood Records. Her debut album, Don’t Forget (2008), made a huge impact at radio. The following year, Lovato was cast as the titular character of the television series Sonny with a Chance and she released her sophomore album, Here We Go Again, which became her first one to top the New Music Weekly charts. After the release of additional television films and their soundtracks in 2010, including Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam, Lovato’s personal issues put her career on a hiatus and led to the discontinuation of Sonny with a Chance after a second season. She entered a treatment center in late 2010 to seek help for addictions, an eating disorder, and self-harm. While there, she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Work on her third studio album, Unbroken (2011), began after she successfully completed treatment. The album addresses several of her difficulties. Its lead single, “Skyscraper”, became Lovato’s second top 10 entry in the US, while its second single, “Give Your Heart a Break”, was certified triple platinum in the country. Her fourth album, Demi (2013), generated the single “Heart Attack”, which became her third top 10 in the US. While promoting the project, Lovato released a book titled Staying Strong: 365 Days a Year (2013). She also returned to acting as a recurring character in Glee, and released a memoir in 2014. Lovato’s fifth album, Confident (2015), reached number two on the Billboard 200. Its lead single “Cool for the Summer” was eventually certified double platinum in the US. All five of Lovato’s albums have received a gold certification in the country. Musically, Lovato is considered a pop, rock and R&B artist. Lovato has received a considerable number of accolades, including an MTV Video Music Award, 13 Teen Choice Awards, five People’s Choice Awards, an ALMA Award, and a Latin American Music Award. 3

Maroon 5 has teamed up with musical flavor of the month SZA for what appears to be a real solid Top40 winner. “What Lovers Do” (222/Interscope) is the talk of the radio world and is getting solid play “out of the box” indicating that some very big things are in the works. Are you up on and Blackbear? If not, what are you waiting for? Their single entitled “Do Re Mi” (Beartrap/Alamo/Interscope) is fast becoming the one to watch and add at the format. Khalid along with Rae Sremmurd & Lil Yachty are making things happen as their “Young, Dumb & Broke” (RCA/RLG) takes flight so get on this train for sure. SZA (once again) has paired with Travis Scott and the results appear to be rewarding. It’s all due to “Love Galore” (Top Dawg Entertainment/RCA) that is taking the town by storm. I’m also happy to report that Hanson is back. Yes, you heard it first right here my friends. “I Was Born” (Three Car Garage) is their latest masterpiece so we wish the brothers well with their new single. Dua Lipa appears to need no help these days. The new and powerful “New Rules” (WB/WEA) is off like a rocket and make no mistake about that. Ed Sheeran keeps the hits rolling ever so strong. This time out he takes the jam “Perfect” (Atlantic) out for a spin and the results are already quite amazing. And speaking of amazing, how about the love and response Taylor Swift is getting at radio from Top40 to Hot AC. Everybody is going “gaga” for her new and ever so long awaited “Look What You Made Me Do” (Big Machine/Universal). Expect to see this at the top of everybody’s charts in about a week or two. Justin Bieber has brought along Blood Pop for another Top40 gem. Many of our music and program directors are singing the praises of “Friends” (Republic). Oh and have I mentioned the name SZA in this column? Well if I have, I don’t mean to be redundant. This new flavor of the industry is also taking “The Weekend” (Top Dawg Entertainment/RCA) out for a spin so you might as well make it an all SZA month. I just love how the music industry embraces an artist “out of the box” into a complete overkill. Max and Gnash keep a good thing going and why not. “Lights Down Low” (RAL/Sony) continues to build believers by leaps and bounds and why not – this one is a winner folks. J Balvin & Willy William are also pulling in some very big spins. “Mi Gente” (EMI) is the jam that I’m talking about and all of you programmers out there know just what I’m talking about. Halsey keeps the hits rolling and trolling. “Bad At Love” (Astralwerks/Capitol) is the latest from this artist that seems to be doing everything just right. Cardi B is rocking strong with “Bodak Yellow” (KSR Group/Atlantic). The Script are back and that’s always a good thing as “Rain” (Columbia) moves up a few. The super pairing of French Montana and Swae Lee is turning out to be quite nice as their “Unforgettable” (Bad Boy Entertainment/Epic) moves past the pack. The single that brings DJ Khaled along with Rihanna & Bryson Tiller together is becoming quite a monster hit. “Wild Thoughts” (We The Best/Epic) is so hot you can’t touch it without getting burned. Newcomer Joanna Michelle is setting the music world on fire with her debut single “Too Sophisticated” (Twin Angel). The single started here at New Music Weekly and has already reached the Top 100 on the Mediabase Top40 charts in record time. Garrett Young continues to amaze at Top40 as his “Do You Hear My Cries” (West Coast Collective) has proven that longevity is a very good thing. John Ratliff and his band Receptacle are rocking the format once again strong with “Love Is Magic” and good for them. Newcomer Devi has a solid winner on her hands as her debut single “One More Day” builds strong and impressive numbers. Dianne Meinke is also rocking Top 40 as her “Lemonade, Freshly Squeezed” (UVI) breaks bigger and better ground. This is our very special Fall Music Preview so make sure you check out all of the chart activity and information available from all of the above artists. The Summer is finally winding down and now we get to enjoy some cool Fall weather along with some red-hot new music .

Ed Sheeran continues his winning ways at AC40 and really is the banner artist for the format. “Perfect” (Atlantic) is about as “perfect” as they come giving this multi-talented gent another hit at radio. Taylor Swift is not doing too bad either. Her return in the powerful “Look What You Made Me Do” (Big Machine/Universal) is being met with much fanfare. Phillip Phillips who first came to us via American Idol is back at radio and that’s a welcome notion. His new “Miles” (Interscope) single showcases once again just how strong and solid he is as a songwriter and recording artist. Imagine Dragons have to be one of the best bands to come along it quite some time. They put it all on the line as their new “Thunder” (KIDinaKORNER/ Interscope) explodes at the format. They don’t come any better than this my friends. And speaking of friends, our pal Justin Bieber takes his new homie Blood Pop out for a spin with “Friends” (Republic) and the early results are quite something. Lights have a good thing going and make no mistake about that. “Giants” (WB/WEA) is the new jam that is getting raves from many of our music and program directors signaling something good is going on here. Rachel Platten is fast becoming the darling of the AC40 format. She proves my point as her new “Broken Glass” (Columbia) takes off. This is such a talented artist that will not be denied at radio to be sure. The paring of Logic with Alessia Cara & Khalid is pure magic. From his powerful VH1 showing recently, Logic appears to have found his stride and gotten the attention he so deserves. “18002738255” (DefJam/UMG) is the jam that is making it all happen but it’s the artist that is really the story here. Halsey is breaking at the format and many of our programmers are truly happy with the results. “Bad At Love” (Astralwerks/Capitol) is the artists latest and this one deserves your immediate attention. Newcomer Alex English is also getting plenty of love at the format. His new “High Off The Ground” is about as good as I gets for a new artist that is truly “on the verge”. We’ll see how it all plays out for him in the weeks to come. Recording artist Devi is proving to be the “real deal”. Her “One More Day” (Independent) has been a winner from the first week of its release. Radio has really taken to her sound and there is a little bit more about this amazing artist in this Fall Music Preview. Rebel Hearts have teamed up with Boyz Nite Out for a great track. “Baby Doll” (RHR) is such a good tune and a bit of a throwback to better musical days. The new Andy Grammer is really a treat. Teamed with Lunch Money Lewis they take the single “Give Love” (S Curve/EMI) out for a spin and this one is truly a “must add”. Autumn Sky Wolfe is breaking fast and furious with the single “Just You” (Wolfe Tracks Music) and it might be time to re-visit this gem. Glenn Coleman is also making some magic happen at AC40. “Too Far Gone” (Gravel Road) is his latest offering and this one has some real solid staying power. Newcomer JoAnna Michelle has been making some rather impressive waves as of late. Her debut single “Too Sophisticated” (Twin Angel) got started right here at New Music Weekly. Just remember that she got her start right here my friends. Train has a track that deserves more love and attention. “Drink Up (Columbia) is their latest that needs a few more spins. Chuck Murphy and his band & Big Coyote are killing it out there with an amazing entry. “Free To Be Free” (One West Music) is so good that multi-formats are now all over this gem big time. Dianne Meinke takes her brilliance to a new level as “Lemonade, Freshly Squeezed” (UVI) moves past the pack. A big congrats to newcomer Garrett Young and his debut single “Do You Hear My Cries” (West Coast Collective). It’s been #1 here for a month and is so well deserved. Eileen Carey is rocking strong with “Good, Bad Girl” and good for her. John Ratliff and Receptacle are also moving to the top with “Love Is Magic”. We’ll see how all of this plays out next time right here.

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

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

Stars help raise millions during hurricane relief telethon Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx, Beyonce and Justin Bieber were among the celebrities who helped to raise $14.5 million (£10.9 million) on Tuesday (12Sep17) during the Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief telethon. The event featured stars gathered simultaneously in New York, Los Angeles, San Antonio, Texas, and Nashville, Tennessee to lend their voices to the cause, aiding those affected by last month’s (Aug17) Hurricane Harvey, which devastated areas of Texas and Louisiana, and Hurricane Irma, which ripped through the Caribbean and much of Florida in the past week. Soul veteran Stevie Wonder kicked off the benefit with a moving cover of Lean on Me, backed by a gospel choir, telling viewers, “We’ve come together today to love on the people who have been devastated by the hurricanes. “When love goes into action, it preferences no colour of the skin, no ethnicity, no religious belief, no sexual preferences, and no political persuasions, it just loves.” The blind musician then urged viewers to “love and value our planet”, while slamming climate change deniers, insisting: “Anyone who believes that there is no such thing as global warming must be blind or unintelligent. Lord, please save us all.” Leonardo DiCaprio then reunited with his Django Unchained co-star Jamie Foxx to call for much-needed donations. “The past two weeks have brought unimaginable hardship to millions in areas affected by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma,” a somber Leonardo said. “The destruction of these storms brought entire states and island nations to a standstill, flooded our cities, small towns, and destroyed countless homes. What the storm left behind was fear in the hearts of so many who now face an uncertain future. Tonight, we want to help.” “We’re here to raise money, lift some spirits,” continued Foxx. “When tough times hit, this is who we are. We’re compassionate, we’re unstoppable when we unite, when we join together hand in hand.” “Let’s join hands and lift the victims out of the darkness,” concluded DiCaprio. Those manning the phones in Los Angeles included Tom Hanks, Billy Crystal, Sofia Vergara, George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Bieber, Kerry Washington, Jared Leto, Cher, Jeremy Renner, DJ Khaled, and Gwen Stefani, among many others, while in New York, people got to chat to Bruce Willis, Al Pacino, Robert De Niro,

Lupita Nyong’o, Steve Buscemi, and Richard Gere as they called in to donate. Halfway through the show, rapper and Houston, Texas native Bun B appeared onscreen with his event co-organiser Scooter Braun to announce they had already raised $2.9 million, with funds still pouring in. There were also moving video messages from fellow Houston hero Beyonce, Dwayne Johnson, and Drake, while presenters included Oprah Winfrey, Justin Timberlake, Kelly Rowland, and Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman. Meanwhile, Justin Bieber helped to lead a prayer from Los Angeles, and there were further musical performances from unlikely duos Tori Kelly and Luis Fonsi, who performed Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, and R&B superstar Usher and country singer Blake Shelton, who teamed up for a rendition of Ben E. King classic Stand By Me. Brad Paisley, Demi Lovato, and Darius Rucker also hit the stage at Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry, and George Strait led a rendition of If It Wasn’t for Texas with artists including Miranda Lambert and Lyle Lovett from San Antonio.

Halsey goes public with G-Eazy romance

Pop star Halsey has confirmed her rumoured romance with rapper G-Eazy after stepping out as a couple during New York Fashion Week. The Closer hitmaker sparked speculation she and G-Eazy were dating in July (17), when they were reported to be spending time together in Los Angeles, but in late August (17), Halsey really turned heads by passionately kissing the MC during a club performance in New Orleans, Louisiana, where they teamed up for a duet of their steamy new collaboration Him & I. The musicians have since made it clear they are more than just friends, attending designer Jonathan Simkhai’s weekend (09-10Sep17) presentation in the Big Apple, where they sat in the front row and held hands. Halsey and G-Eazy, 28, also stopped by an event hosted by menswear designer Virgil Abloh, and shared video clips of themselves kissing and drinking on Instagram. They have now followed up their public displays of affection with a new social media snap of themselves locking lips in a New York convenience store, which Halsey captioned, “Bodega baby”. The romance is Halsey’s first in the public eye - the bisexual star, 22, previously revealed she suffered a miscarriage while

on tour in 2015, but didn’t share the identity of the baby’s father. She has since come to regret being so open about the tragedy, because some Twitter trolls were far from kind about the sad news. “Afterward, people started spamming me with photos of baby body parts and being like, ‘Halsey’s baby’,” she recently lamented to Billboard. “I had a miscarriage - it happens to thousands of women every day. The s**tiest part was, people by and large weren’t like, ‘That’s really terrible’ - everyone was like, ‘Who’s the father?’ “Weirdly enough, I think it also woman-ized me. I think everyone saw me as a kid before that.”

Lorde gains Croatian citizenship

New Zealand popstar Lorde has officially taken up Croatian citizenship. The Royals singer’s mother Sonja is from a Croatian family who emigrated to New Zealand and she revealed she had used her parental connection to gain dual-citizenship. The 20-year-old musician said, “So yeah, I’m Croatian, I got Croatian citizenship.” Lorde, whose real name is Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor, admitted her celebrity status may have helped her speed up the process. “I am a bit of a fancy, famous Croatian. I think not every Croatian gets that, they hooked me up so to speak,” she explained. Last month (Aug17), the star met Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic during a visit to New Zealand, and the politician posted a picture of herself with Lorde on her official Facebook page. Opening up about her heritage the 20-year-old singer explained, “There are actually like a 100,000 CroatianYugoslav people in New Zealand and lots of them have been there for a long time. There is a lot of wine (in New Zealand), the Dalmatians (those originally from Dalmatia in Croatia) drink a lot of wine down there.” Other stars with Croatian heritage include Hollywood actors John Malkovich and Eric Bana as well as Nirvana co-founder Krist Novoselic. Lorde is set to begin a world tour in support of her album Melodrama later this month (Sep17). Despite her decision to take up citizenship, she does not currently have any Croatian tour dates scheduled, but the singer will return to her native New Zealand in November (17) for a run of seven concerts.

The long-awaited track listing was also unveiled in a partnership with Foursquare Swarm.

are apparently renting “a low-rise luxury building” in the centre of Greenwich Village in Manhattan while Selena films her role in an untitled Woody Allen project and he is away on tour. According to Entertainment Tonight, although the move is only temporary, it is still “a big deal” for the actress as she normally just lives in hotels while filming on location. A source told the website that the luxury apartment features high ceilings, Juliet balconies and an English-style kitchen, and similar properties can cost at least $16,000 a month. “Best of all, the master bath is outfitted with his and her vanities, a steam shower and Kohler cast-iron bathtub,” the insider added. “They’ve both been very gracious to the neighbours and seem very happy with their living arrangement.” Selena, 25, isn’t planning on making a permanent switch from her Los Angeles base but she is currently immersing herself in the “nitty gritty” of New York life, the source added. The singer, who last appeared in 2016 movie In Dubious Battle, was pictured working on location on Monday (11Sep17) dressed in a beige trench coat, denim jeans, and white sneakers. Paparazzi snaps show Selena locking lips with her co-star Timothee Chalamet in the front seat of a BMW convertible as Woody watches on while others show her standing around as the shot is set up, hugging Woody and her co-star Elle Fanning. The Weeknd is currently in the middle of his Starboy: Legend of the Fall Tour and he is next set to perform in Boston, Massachusetts on Tuesday night. Once the North American leg finishes in November (17), he will head Down Under for the remaining part of the trek.

Mel B under criminal investigation for witness tampering

Justin Moore’s “Kinda Don’t Care” proves he is nothing but 100% genuine. His new single emulates the mentality loyal fans have come to expect from him, as his Southern drawl impacts Country radio today.

NMW - SEPTEMBER 22, 2017

Vol. 19 Issue 5

Mel B is reportedly under criminal investigation following allegations she intimidated rapper Siya ahead of her testifying in the singer’s bitter divorce battle with Stephen Belafonte. The former Spice Girls star split from producer Stephen in March (17) after nearly 10 years of marriage. Following the marriage breakdown, Mel alleged that Stephen had abused her throughout their relationship and cheated on her while he, in turn, claimed she had a drug and alcohol problem. The mud slinging has continued in court, with the former couple both relying on witnesses to back up each side of the story. According to TMZ.com, Siya had been set to appear as a witness for Stephen, testifying that he had never physically abused his wife, but received text messages from Mel on Saturday threatening her if she did. The outlet claims that Siya, who starred

in U.S. reality series Sisterhood of Hip Hop, showed the messages to police, who then opened a felony witness intimidation case into Mel. TMZ also reported that Siya was set to testify to Mel’s frequent usage of illegal drugs, as well as backing up Stephen’s claims that Mel was the one who called the shots in the alleged threesomes the former couple had with their nanny Lorraine Gilles. However, sources close to the America’s Got Talent judge have disputed Siya’s claims of witness intimidation, and have also denied her claims that she was close friends with both Mel and Stephen, claiming the singer had only met Siya a couple of times. Stephen has also been in court recently asking for spousal support from his estranged wife, with the judge ordering Mel to give him more than $184,000 in temporary spousal support and legal fees. And Stephen has reportedly wasted no time in spending some of the cash, with claims he spent a staggering $25,000 on a private jet ride during an auction at the Brent Shapiro Foundation for Drug Prevention Summer Spectacular on Saturday night.

Troy Gentry memorial set for Grand Ole Opry

Tragic country star Troy Gentry will be remembered during a memorial at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee on Thursday (14Sep17). The Montgomery Gentry star, who became a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 2009, died in a helicopter crash on Friday (08Sep17) in Medford, New Jersey. He was 50. A private interment for his family will follow the solemn affair at Nashville’s fabled country music venue. In lieu of flowers ahead of the celebration of his life, Troy’s family have asked fans to donate to the T.J. Martell Foundation or the American Red Cross for hurricane relief. Tributes continue to pour in for the late star and at a show in New Jersey on Saturday (09Sep17), Jason Aldean performed a Montgomery Gentry cover and honoured his late pal. “Those guys were always really cool to me coming up when I was a new artist, they kinda took me under their wing and were really cool to me and I hated to hear that,” he said of Gentry’s passing. “One thing I know about Troy is he always loved a good time. He always had a smile on his face and liked a good party, and tonight’s a good party, so here’s to Troy Gentry.” Craig Morgan and Charlie Daniels also remembered their friend, with Morgan telling Billboard that Gentry was “more than just a great country singer”. “Together with Eddie, they established and continuously raised the bar as to what a true duo is,” he says. “Troy loved his job and was always

CMA New Artist of the Year nominee Brett Young is proving he’s “in the fast lane to becoming one of country’s breakout stars” (Washington Post) as his 2017 self-titled debut album rapidly soared to RIAA GOLD status. Additionally, his “catchy” (PEOPLE) debut single “Sleep Without You” has been certified PLATINUM, and his smash hit “In Case You Didn’t Know” has reached 2X PLATINUM status. Young was honored for the three achievements Saturday (9/9) at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on the last stop of Lady Antebellum’s YOU LOOK GOOD WORLD TOUR when Big Machine Label Group President/CEO Scott Borchetta and EVP Big Machine Label Group/BMLG Records President Jimmy Harnen surprised the rising superstar on-stage during his set with a plaque to commemorate. “I’m just doing what I love, so it’s cool to see this music mean something to other people too,” Young said. “I’m so honored and thankful for the support of my fans, my team and Country radio for making all of it possible.”

Country recording artist Jenny Leigh will release new single “Let It Just Happen” this month. The song, co-written by Leigh, Barrett Baber (3rd place, The Voice season 9) and Adam Wakefield (runner-up, The Voice season 10), will be available for digital download and streaming via iTunes, Spotify, Pandora, Amazon, etc. The release will come on the heels of her live debut of the single on Today in Nashville and her performance at the Wildhorse Saloon. “’Let it Just Happen’ is a true representation of me as an artist and individual. It showcases a mix of my influences, having grown up listening to everything from country classics to Motown to southern rock, and has a timeless feel to it,” said Leigh. “I hope the song translates to the listener in a way that is nostalgic, with a message that it’s ok to not have everything figured out all the time. Whether you feel stuck in a job, in a relationship, or have an outcome in your life that you’re trying to force, sometimes it can be healing to take a step back and let the pieces fall where they may.” Though the release marks Leigh’s official debut in country music, she’s far from new to the scene: she moved to Nashville in 2013 with Wakefield at the encouragement of John Rich (Big & Rich) after a stint on his show, The Next. Since then, she’s performed the main stages at CMA Fest, shared the stages with acts such as Little Big Town, Eli Young Band, Cole Swindell, The Cadillac Three, and Dierks Bentley, has hit the road with Wakefield, performing with him on tour. Leigh has also played the reoccurring roles as the stunt and body double for Hayden Panetierre and as a stand-in actress supporting Panettiere as well as Clare Bowen and Maisy Stella on CMT’s hit series Nashville, now in her second season with the show. In 2016, she released debut single “Spitfire”, currently available on all digital and streaming platforms.

The empowering call of independence found in the title-track of of Lady Antebellum’s CMA “Album of the Year” nominated and No. One selling album HEART BREAK (Capitol Records Nashville), serves as the new single from the multi-PLATINUM trio. Produced by busbee and written by Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott, Jesse Frasure and Nicolle Galyon, “Heart Break” provides “a bedrock for the entire record” (Paste) as “Scott takes satisfaction in feminine independence” (NPR) with “a touch of darkness and a clever play on words,” (Rolling Stone).

kind and respectful to the fans. But more than that, he loved his family and friends. As a member of the Grand Ole Opry, he held firm to the morals and values the Opry represents. As my friend, he was dependable and always quick to return a call with support. Troy is not here anymore but he will never be gone.” And The Devil Went Down to Georgia singer Charlie Daniels offered up a statement, in which he wrote: “Troy had a great sense of humor, a ready smile and a quick wit, always having a rapid response for the good natured little barbs we always exchanged when we got together. “Young men and women will continue to come to Music City in hopes of making a name for themselves, and there are many lessons they could learn from the life and career of Troy Gentry. Like giving their all every time they walk on stage, about courtesy, kindness and the willingness to go the second mile, and the down home humility he wore so well. “We won’t forget you Troy Gentry - we have the music, the memories and the indelible traces of a life well lived.

And I’m able to look at what I’ve done and I do kind of like sit there and think, ‘Wow, I’m so glad that I got sober and I’m able to help people.’” Demi has also been working to help those affected by the devastating Hurricane Harvey, recently visiting people in Houston, Texas to lend a hand to victims. She was joined by comedian Kevin Hart and Houston Rockets basketballer Chris Paul as they organised items at the Houston Food Bank to be delivered to families that have been affected by major floods in the area. “It was emotional being there, but I also had Kevin Hart and Chris Paul there, and Kevin Hart is so funny so he was the comedic relief, but I had fun,” she smiled. “It was great working with children.”

Keith Urban hints he won’t be back for American Idol reboot

“One More Day” from recording artist Devi is proving to be a solid winner here at New Music Weekly on both our AC40 and Top40 charts. Having survived a youthful baptism in hard-core rock ’n’ roll and more recently her rebirth as a singer/songwriter, Devi stands alone among her peers for her searing originality and fearless candor. Coproduced by Devi and The Practice Worldwide, Amazing is a kaleidoscope of romantic ecstasy (“Amazing”) loss (“One More Day”) and raw desire (“Summer Love”). It brilliantly captures the fear (“Darkness”), assertiveness (“Promises”) and exhilaration (“It’s Your Life”) that come with empowerment, as well as the difficulty of confronting your weaknesses (“Bad Boy). From deep blues — urban on “Still Got The Blues,” down-home rural on “Somewhere Between Love And Hate” — to joyous uptown funk (“One And Only”), Devi’s tunes and grooves encompass myriad styles, each one matched to her message for that tune. It is, in other words, as varied as life itself. “Amazing reflects my diversity more than anything I’ve ever done”, Devi says. “For the first time, I decided that since I love to express myself through blues, Latin/Spanish, rock ’n’ roll, club tunes and even country, why not put them all together on one album? With Amazing I finally freed all the many lyrics and melodies that have been dancing in my mind and turned them into something tangible. To me, that’s like magic.” You can visit Devi @ Facebook: Deviofficialnow, www.deviofficialnow.com,

Keith Urban has hinted he won’t be returning as a judge on the American Idol reboot. The country star sat on the panel of the U.S. TV talent show for four years up until it ended in 2016. The show is being revived for a return to screens next year (18), with Katy Perry confirmed as a judge and Ryan Seacrest returning as presenter, and Keith had been considered a frontrunner for another panel position on the comeback. However, as he joined wife Nicole Kidman for the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of her new movie The Upside, Keith suggested that he hasn’t signed up for a return to the show. “I think it’s going to be all new people except for Ryan,” Keith told Us Weekly magazine. Lionel Richie and Charlie Puth are among the names being bandied around for judging positions on the show, while That Don’t Impress Me Much star Shania Twain recently expressed her interest in a spot on the panel. The singer was a hit as a guest judge on the show back in 2009 and TV bosses have reportedly considered her for a regular role on the show ever since, with Shania admitting her time could be now. “I would do that,” she told Access Hollywood. “We’ve talked back and forth and it is something that I think I would enjoy. “I love the whole experience of being with like-minded people who appreciate amazing, upcoming talent. I think that would be a lot of fun... It would be something that I would like to say yes to.” Shania admitted she loved her time on the show, adding, “It was awesome. I love the whole mentorship concept of... sharing what I know and what I’ve experienced and appreciating the nerves and the tension that this talent is going through.”

Demi Lovato: ‘I’m just grateful to be alive’

Shania Twain’s new Soldier song to feature in military service movie

Indie Artist Devi Making Bold Moves

Demi Lovato will never take her sobriety for granted following a battle with drug and alcohol addiction. The 25-year-old singer was honoured at the Summer Spectacular to Benefit the Brent Shapiro Foundation for Drug Prevention on Saturday (09Sep17), where she was recognised for getting clean. Speaking to Entertainment Tonight at the gala, Demi admitted that it can sometimes be a struggle to stay sober, but she works out and has therapy twice a week in a bid to stay on the straight and narrow. “It feels amazing to be honoured for my sobriety just because this is something that I decided to do on my own, and it’s something that I needed to do for myself and now getting awarded for it feels incredible,” Demi gushed. “Sometimes I just look back and I’m just grateful to be alive. I’m grateful that CAST centers came into my life. CAST is a treatment center that I co-own with Mike Bayer and we, together, are able NMW - SEPTEMBER 22, 2017

Shania Twain’s heart-wrenching new song Soldier will feature in a new movie about returning U.S. troops. The country star shared a preview to Thank You for Your Service, which features her track, online on Friday (08Sep17). The ballad tackles the sacrifice military service members and their families make during wartime. The lyrics include “Don’t close the door when you leave, it’s cold out/I need to see the air when you breathe and say out loud/You’re not alone; when you dream, I’m with you/I hear your heart when it beats; I feel it, too/Sleep in peace/Love is tender/Please remember me.” The song also speaks to the struggle of a young soldier returning home and readjusting to civilian life, which is the theme of Thank You for Your Service. Twain recently revealed the song was tough for her to write, telling Access Hollywood Live she couldn’t get through a verse without sobbing. The country star, who wrote many of the tracks on her upcoming album Now in the aftermath of her marriage break-up, reveals the song is

At one minute past midnight Kid Rock unveiled his latest song “Tennessee Mountain Top” on streaming and sales platforms. “Tennessee Mountain Top” is impacting at Country Radio October 2. The track brings out a Country infused southern rock spirit that has drawn Country fans to Kid Rock for almost two decades since he released the CMA, ACM nominated “Picture.” Both “Picture” and his massive summer anthem “All Summer Long” continue to be fan favorites at Country Radio. A five time Grammy nominee with over 26 million albums sold to date, Kid Rock has consistently blazed his own trail. His career intersected early with Country audiences and created a connection that has continued to grow each year. He has been twice nominated for CMAAwards, “Picture” with Sheryl Crow (2003) and “Can’t You See” with Zac Brown Band (2010). This October 6th and 7th he will host Kid Rock’s Third Annual Fish Fry in Nashville, yet another sign of his close ties to Nashville and Country Music. 25


Orlando alternative pop-rock outfit Raising Cadence are thrilled to announce the details for their newest EP, Take Me Higher, which has been set for release on October 27, 2017. The EP features an eclectic mix of five energetic indie-rock tracks crafted with intention to move the listener with emotion. Earlier this year, the band gave fans a taste of what’s to come when they released the EP’s title track, “Take Me Higher,” an uplifting, danceable groove that brings out the best in you. Listen to “Take Me Higher” on YouTube here. Take Me Higher was produced by Randall Karriker (Stages and Stereos, The Dangerous Summer) at Red Oak Collective. all about saying goodbye to loved ones - and she really had a problem with the lyrics. “I cried so much...,” she said. “I would write a few words and then I would start crying and I’d have to take a break, and then I’d carry on writing and then I’d have to take another break. It was very emotional writing that song. “The song is all about letting go and maybe being the last time you ever see someone... I relate it to many people in my life... People that I’ve had to say goodbye to or let go of. That song was a journey, emotionally, in itself.”

Zayn Malik: ‘Everything is civil with ex-bandmates’

Zayn Malik has worked hard to maintain a “civil” relationship with his former One Direction bandmates. Since quitting the British boyband, Zayn has enjoyed a hugely successful solo career, and is currently working on his second album. The remaining singers, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Niall Horan have also launched solo projects while the group is on hiatus, and Zayn insists things are still “civil” between him and his former pals. “We’re in touch. Everything is on a civil level,” he explained to Us Weekly magazine. “It’s not the way it used to be, obviously, because we were spending 24 hours a day in the band and now we’re growing as individual men, but we still check in.” However, asked if he still talks to Harry, Zayn replied: “To be honest, I never really spoke to Harry even when I was in the band. So I didn’t really expect that much of a relationship with him.” Zayn also spoke about his relationship with model Gigi Hadid during the interview. The Dusk Till Dawn singer and Gigi went public with their romance in November 2015, and are no strangers to flaunting their relationship on social media. And while having a relationship that attracts so much interest from fans is sometimes difficult, Zayn’s sole priority is making sure that Gigi is happy. “We try not to think about it too much,” he replied when asked how they handle dating in the spotlight. “There are a lot of people who are too busy in other people’s 26

VAN MORRISON has premiered a new track from his forthcoming album ROLL WITH THE PUNCHES online. “Goin’ To Chicago”was written and famously recorded by Count Basie and Jimmy Rushing. This recording sees the timeless classic tackled by VAN MORRISON, his incredible studio ensemble and long time collaborator Georgie Fame who shares lead vocals. The resulting track is five minutes of gloriously transportational roadtrip blues music. “Goin’ To Chicago”is offered as an instant grat to anyone pre-ordering the album here. It is also available via all streaming platforms.

lives. I just concentrate on my relationship and try to do right by my girlfriend and she does by me, and we hope for the best, as we all do!” Gigi and Zayn’s relationship appears to be going from strength to strength, with the pair enjoying date nights by cooking for one another. But the 24-year-old singer isn’t feeling under any pressure to settle down and have children like ex bandmates Louis and Liam. “I don’t think things like that should be decided based on feeling pressure. When it’s the right time and place, hopefully that will happen. Who knows when that will be,” he mused.

Lady Gaga urges Madonna to ‘push me against a wall

Lady Gaga has urged Madonna to “push me up against a wall and kiss me” to end their long-running feud. The Poker Face singer opens up her life in new biopic Gaga: Five Foot Two, in which she discusses the highs and lows of her career. Her long-running feud with the Queen of Pop has seen Gaga frequently hit headlines over the years, but the star is now keen to put the rivalry behind her once and for all. “I’m Italian and from New York, so if I have a problem, I’m gonna tell you to your face,” she addressed Madonna while talking to the camera in the biopic. She then added: “I just want Madonna to push me up against a wall, kiss me and tell me I’m a piece of s**t.” The regular comparisons between Gaga and Madonna is what has caused friction between the pair and led them to criticise each other in interviews - especially after the singer was accused of ripping off Madonna’s Express Yourself with her 2011 track Born This Way. But Gaga also appeared to have tried to call time on the feud last December (16), when she praised her rival for the rousing female empowerment speech she gave at the Billboard Women in Music Awards. “@Madonna your speech at the Billboard Music Awards was inspiring,” she tweeted. “You’re so brave & strong. Thanks for being that for us girls we need that.” Gaga’s documentary will also see her discuss her split from fiance Taylor Kinney. The breakdown of their relationship

Audra McLaughin signed with Kore Public Relations just in time for the release of her newest single, “Boomerang,” the first major release since her run as a Team Blake finalist on Season 6 of NBC’s The Voice. Since the release, the music video, shot by Steve Condon (Old Dominion), premiered on Vevo, was added to their dscvr Country Playlist. She also performed the Xfinity post show for Tim McGraw & Faith Hill’s Soul 2 Soul Tour in Philadelphia, went on radio tour, including national radio programs, performed on television morning shows in promotion for the track, and visited with music executives in Nashville, Tennessee. To say the release has been a success would be an understatement for the PA native. NMW - SEPTEMBER 22, 2017

is documented in the biopic, with the singer telling viewers: “Me and Taylor are fighting, so that sucks. My threshold for bulls**t with men is just - I don’t have SINGLE one anymore. In TW ARTIST relationships, you have to move together.” She also appeared to hint that her success had been responsible for the end of her engagement, while comparing the romance to her former relationships with Matthew “Matty Dada” Williams, who she dated before finding fame, and former bar manager Luc Carl, who she dated between 2005 and 2011. “My love life has just imploded,” she moaned. “I sold 10 million (records) and lost Matt. I sold 30 million and lost Luc. I did a movie (A Star is Born, with Bradley Cooper) and lost Taylor. It’s like a turnover. This is the third time I’ve had my heart broken like this.” Gaga has since found love with agent Christian Carino.

Harry Styles required wrist surgery ahead of U.S. tour

Harry Styles feared a recent wrist operation might prevent him from playing guitar on his upcoming U.S. tour. During an interview with Australian radio host Kent “Smallzy” Small the 23-year-old star sported a wrist bandage and revealed he had been suffering from “tight tendons”, and so opted to have “a little bit of surgery on my wrist”. Harry initially feared he might not be able to play guitar on stage, but was reassured by doctors it wouldn’t affect his tour, the North American leg of which kicks off next week (beg18Sep17). The Sign of the Times star explained, “Well I said before I went in I was like, ‘I need to play guitar in two weeks, is that alright?’ and he was like,’no problem’.” The One Direction star also revealed he was awake for the procedure. Harry’s world tour begins in San Francisco next Tuesday and takes him across the U.S. and Canada before he heads to Europe next month. Despite his busy touring schedule Harry said he’s already working on new solo material. “I’m always writing, so I’m definitely always kind of writing stuff,” he explained. “Whenever the time comes to properly get in the studio and do it, you don’t know where you’ll be, but I’m writing, yeah.” Since One Direction went on hiatus at the end of 2015, Harry has also embarked on an acting career. Dunkirk, his debut feature film as an actor, has made almost $500 million (£380 million) at the global box office since

its July release. Harry also previously revealed that he had suffered a wrist injury while shooting director Christopher Nolan’s war epic, telling Capital FM: “There was a couple LABEL of little (injuries), I was a little numb by the end of it. I did something to my wrist that I don’t even know, it keeps going.”

Mariah Carey plotting return to reality television

Mariah Carey is reportedly plotting a return to reality television, after signing a deal with VH1 to shoot a docuseries chronicling her 2018 world tour. The 47year-old singer first forayed into the world of small screen real-life entertainment with her E! series Mariah’s World, which ran for eight episodes on the U.S. TV network last year (16). While the series opened with what became one of E!’s highest-rated premieres ever, ratings dropped dramatically as the series progressed, with many criticising scenes which often appeared staged. Mariah isn’t letting the mixed reviews for Mariah’s World put her off another reality TV venture, with the New York Post’s gossip column Page Six reporting that she is working on a new behind-the-scenes docuseries with VH1. “Mariah’s World was always planned to be an eight-part TV event. But now she is planning a huge world tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of (album) Butterfly to start early 2018,” a source told the outlet. “It will be similar to U2’s Joshua Tree tour. VH1 is set to film a docuseries that will capture the behind-the-scenes of her tour.” Representatives for Mariah and VH1 declined to comment when approached by Page Six. Mariah’s World followed Mariah as she geared up for her The Sweet Sweet Fantasy Tour and her wedding to billionaire James Packer. However, the storylines were changed when her relationship with James broke down and she started dating backing dancer Bryan Tanaka. Speaking to Variety about why she wanted to do a docuseries at that point, Mariah said: “Really because I was getting ready to go on tour and there’s so much that goes into it, and I was like, let’s just document it and go behind the scenes. It’s going to be hilarious. I didn’t get talked into it - I just wanted to do it because I thought it would be a lot of fun.”

Indie alt-pop band Computer Games, comprised of frontman Darren Criss and multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Chuck Criss, have released their second music video for their album’s title track, “Lost Boys Life”. Directed by Mia Elan, the video incorporates live shots from Computer Games’ first ever and sold-out show in Los Angeles at the Teragram Ballroom. Breakout star Gaten Matarazzo from Netflix’s global phenomenon series “Stranger Things” stars in the video as the conflicted lost boy, navigating through his somewhat mundane life. “I had a blast performing with Darren at Elsie Fest last year,” said Matarazzo. “That was the first time we had ever met and instantly became buddies. When he sent me the treatment to Computer Games’ music video, I was like – rock on! I’m in!” As for the Criss brothers, having young Matarazzo appear in the video was a no-brainer. “We’re both huge fans of ‘Stranger Things,’” said Chuck. “The song shares many of the same 80’s electronica influences that can be heard throughout the series.”

Madonna planning intimate gigs to ‘connect’ with fans SPINS CUME WEEKS

Madonna is planning to do more “intimate” gigs which allow her to engage with audience members. The entertainer has built up a reputation for hosting large tours since launching her career in the 1980s, but in a new interview, she has divulged that she now wants to “reinvent” her concerts. “I’ve done so many shows world tours, stadiums, sports arenas, you name it - that

Currently set to support Bruno Mars on a run of dates, Dua Lipa has announced her upcoming headlining US tour. The tour will start on November 20th in Boston making stops in major cities including New York, Hollywood, Chicago, and Nashville before wrapping up in Seattle on February 17th .

Grammy-nominated artist Seth MacFarlane’s love affair with standards continues with his fourth album, In Full Swing, set for release this month on Verve Label Group / Republic Records. MacFarlane wraps his rich, expressive baritone around 16 toe-tapping tunes he handpicked, utilizing his near encyclopedic knowledge of songs from the era. A connoisseur of the period, MacFarlane delighted in finding obscure gems, many first featured in musicals, to sprinkle between the better-known tracks from the ‘20s, ‘30s, ‘40s and ‘50s. In Full Swing is irrepressibly upbeat about cupid’s arrow finding its mark. Blessed with an arranger’s ear, MacFarlane revamped the originals with a deliberate approach, sometimes altering the tempo and structure during sessions with producer/arranger Joel McNeely. 27

Luke Bryan continues as Country radio’s biggest star. He proves it once again as his new and powerful “Light It Up” (Capitol Nashville) takes off with rather impressive numbers. I’m also happy to see my favorite band in Country music today the Zac Brown Band picking up where they left off. “Roots” (Southern Ground/Atlantic) is their latest and greatest and our panel of music and program directors are all over this one big time. Gary Allan is back and that always a welcome sight. “Mess Me Up” (EMI Nashville) is his latest and this one has some huge potential provided radio gives him a fair shot. Brett Young continues his winning ways. “Like I Loved You” (Big Machine/Universal) is the new song from this super talented recording artist. We’ll see how it all plays out in the weeks to come but so far so very good for Brett. Dan & Shay, one of my favorite duos are back at it. “Road Trippin’” (WB/WEA) is just so good that you can’t put it down. Make sure you save a little extra room on your list of currents for this extra special single. Devin Dawson is taking Country radio by storm. The new “All On Me” (Atlantic Nashville) is really all you need to know to make your listeners happy. Luke Combs is burning ever so bright at the format. His current “When It Rains It Pours” (River House/Columbia Nashville) is about as good as it gets. The Sarah Dunn Band is also getting plenty of love out there from our music and program directors. “A Cowboy’s Face” (Reznam) is the jam that you need to spend a little more time on if you’re not already on it. Wayne Warner is back at Country radio and it’s about time. His new and strong track “God For A Minute” (MTS) is picking up quite a bit of steam and that should be telling you something here. Russell Dickerson is also getting plenty of love and support at radio. “Yours” (Triple Tigers) is the single that is opening doors for this talented artist. JC Buckshot is also getting in on the action and why not. “Crazy Over You” (12 Gauge) is pretty cleaver and if you have the room then take this one for a spin. Shania Twain is back at the format and we love that. We are happy to report that her “Life’s About To Get Good” (Mercury Nashville) a new story from her is up for play and it would be great to have her back high on the charts at radio once again. Rachel Stacy could be the next Shania and that would be ok with her. “Boomerang” (Ind) is the track that’s getting plenty of love and attention. Tim Elliott is on fire and that’s quite evident to see these days. “Start Pourin’ Whiskey On It” (Boggs River Entertainment) is the one you need to pay a little extra attention to in the weeks to come. Kenny Chesney continues to be king as his “All The Pretty Girls” (Columbia Nashville) moves past the pack in a very crowded field. Lee Brice continues to amaze us with his stellar “Boy” (Curb) single. Granger Smith is also getting it done once again as his strong and powerful “Happens Like That” (Wheelhouse) takes flight. Recording artist DA Cole is building a solid story at Country. Hitting the chart in a very big way is his “Comin’ Home To Country” (Durango Music). James Williams is behind the campaign so that has quite a bit to do with it. Recording artist Tony Watson is also getting solid action for the single “Lady Is My Own” (Star 1) so pay some extra attention to that one as well. Many of you have been loving the Don Faires single and why not. His unique and strong “Evangeline” (Hologram) is a solid winner. Chuck Murphy and his powerhouse band Big Coyote are off to a stellar start at the Country format. “Free To Be Free” (One West) is the gem that is making magic happen for Chuck and company. The single is already a huge hit at both the AC40 and top40 formats (see both charts in this issue) & our programmers at Country are now raving about this gem as well. This is our Fall Music Preview and make sure to check out the ads from Chuck Murphy and others in this issue. There’s a lot of great major and independent music out and about right now and New Music Weekly is here to cover all of it for you. I’ll see you back here for our next major issue of today’s greatest Country hits.
