Best of 2013

Time to Honor Your Favorite Artists

We find it almost impossible to believe that we are coming to the end of another year. This one seems to have gotten away from us all too fast and now we get set for the arrival of 2014. As we look back at this rather fast paced year, it is also time to look at some of music’s strongest as part of our Best of 2013 issue. You can already get a small glimpse of that success simply by looking at the charts in this issue. Artists and bands that made the proper choices early on seem to find a continued presence on many of our charts. Again it is important to note that artists with a plan can truly make things happen. There new some acts that came into frame this year bringing new sounds and great songs and that made for some rather exciting times. The American Authors come to mind as a shining musical light. The act brought us an instant anthem in “Best Day Of My Life” (Island) that is already being covered on many television shows, and that also seems to be where the real money is these days. Imagine Dragons continued to amaze us with more hits in the early stage of their career. Their latest hit in “Demons” became a real powerhouse and there will be no doubt much to come from them in the near future. A Great Big World made quite an entrance as well. Their debut single “Say Something” (Epic/Sony) is also fast becoming one of the biggest songs as we close out the year. As of late its already been covered by artists from The Voice to X Factor, a sign that a huge instant hit has been created. Country produced a number of great new artists with instant top charting hits. The first one that comes to mind is Thomas Rhett who hit the charts with some major support from Country radio. Charlie Worsham came out to instant fan fair and seems to be on his way to great things. Of course we have to give some kudos to Tyler Farr who’s “Redneck Crazy” fast became an instant anthem moving to #1 in what seemed to be record time. It was also a huge year for independent artists and bands as well. Too many to mention in this column, a good many of them you will still find on the many charts here in this issue. Some have taken the time to ask for your support for our up and coming New Music Awards and why not? The process for this is pretty simple so we’ll try to explain it to you once again. On our website there is a link that allows for industry, fans and friends to list potential nominees for this year’s awards in multicategories. Simply go there and you can help start the process. Over this coming holiday, all of those votes will be tabulated along with a special poll that will be taken from our stations and their music directors. The final outcome will be revealed in our very first issue back from vacation. There are still a lot of great new holiday songs to pay some attention to as well. Once again you will find a good many of them from both the majors and the independent record labels. As we noted in our last column, the great part about getting a Christmas song started is that it may enter many programmers holiday library’s and stay there for years to come. Please support many of these artists and keep them on your list as there are some gems out there that are deserving of your continued support. New Music Weekly will continue to offer artists, bands and record labels the music “tools of the trade”. From our weekly charts powered by STS, our printed and online music issues to our Future Hits compilations, NMW will continue to bring you all the things you need to assist you at radio. All of us want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous and happy New Year. We’ll see you bright and early in 2014.

Kelly Clarkson’s latest album release “Wrapped In Red” is the musical star for the holiday season of 2013. The single “Underneath The Tree” (RCA/RLG) is just one of the tracks getting lots of airplay this Christmas. Clarkson has sold over 20 million albums world-wide. In a career spanning over a decade, Clarkson has accumulated ninety-one number ones on the Billboard charts, and eleven number one singles worldwide. Born Brianne Blackstock, she came to prominence after winning the first season of American Idol, and has since been established as “The Original American Idol”. Her debut single, “A Moment Like This”, topped the US Billboard Hot 100 and broke the record for the biggest jump to number one in the chart’s history; it became the best-selling single of the year in the country. She became the runner-up of World Idol the following year. Clarkson’s debut studio album, Thankful (2003), has been certified 2× platinum and sold over 4.5 million copies internationally. Its lead single, “Miss Independent”, became an international hit, earning Clarkson her first Grammy nomination. She developed a rock-oriented sound with her second album, Breakaway (2004). It was certified 6× platinum and sold over 15 million copies worldwide, earning Clarkson two Grammy Awards, including one for the hit single “Since U Been Gone. Her fifth album, Stronger (2011), generated international chart-topping singles “Mr. Know It All” and “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)”, with the latter being the second-best selling American Idol single to date with over four million downloads in the U.S. The album won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album, making Clarkson the first and only artist to win the award twice. In 2012, Clarkson released Greatest Hits – Chapter One; its lead single, “Catch My Breath”, is her twentyfourth entry on the Hot 100 and her eleventh million-selling single. She continues to amaze us now with a Christmas album that will no doubt be her for years to come. 3

The American Authors have taken the format by storm and are off to an amazing story at Top40 and other formats. “Best Day Of My Life” (Island) is nothing short of brilliant. It’s already being covered by artists from X Factor to The Voice, a sign that a big hit has evolved and at rapid speed. Lorde is back with yet another gem. “Team” (Lava/Republic) is the follow-up and it’s even better than her debut. Many of our music and program directors have already jumped on this new masterpiece. Lupe Fiasco has teamed up with the brilliant and talented Ed Sheeran for a great track. “Old School Love” (1st & 15th/Atlantic) is about is good as they get so make sure to add this to your list of currents. You can be assured that the phones will light up with every spin on this one. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have teamed up with Schoolboy Q for another winner. “White Walls” (WB/WEA) is the jam that is getting rave reviews. This team cleaned up at the recent American Music Awards and will no doubt captivate the Grammy Awards so don’t be a late bloomer on this one. Recording artist John Newman has a real solid single on his hands. The cut “Love Me Again” (Republic) is just what Top40 radio needs at this time. Make sure to give this one a fair shot and you will be thanking me in the future. John Mayer and his on again off again gal pal Katy Perry may have found magic together in a new single. “Who You Love” (Columbia/Sony) has been getting some test spins and the word is that it has solid hit potential. I’m not too surprised but we’ll see how it all plays out in the coming weeks. Eminem is back with his old friend Rihanna for another single. The track “The Monster” (Aftermath/Interscope) is fast becoming a real favorite among many of our programmers and that should be of no surprise to many. I hate to admit it but I really like the new Lady Gaga, R Kelly single “Do What U Want” (Streamline/Interscope). Those two really deserve each other and the results may prove to be positive. Drake has teamed up with Majid Jordan for something that is pure magic. “Hold On, We’re Going Home” (Young Money/Cash Money/Republic) is the jam that I’m talking about. If you don’t believe me, just give it a few spins and see what happens. One of the best bands in recent memory is Imagine Dragons. They strike once again with the stellar “Demons” (Interscope) and what a great song this is. You can bet that this band will be around for quite some time to come as their list of hits just keeps on growing. Recording artist Tyga has teamed up with Justin Bieber for a real solid song. “Wait For A Minute” (Cash Money/Universal Republic) is really pulling in some rather strong numbers. It might be worth your time and attention. A Great Big World has a solid hold on radio and make no mistake about that. Their brilliant debut “Say Something” (Epic/Sony) is fast becoming a monster hit. It also didn’t hurt that Christina Aguilera joined them in some vocal support during a recent Voice appearance and on the single. Katy Perry continues to amaze us time after time. Her latest offering in “Unconditionally” (Capitol) is actually quite catchy and it appears that se will continue to rule the charts in the weeks and months to come. There are some great holiday songs that deserve your attention. Allen D and his “Christmas Song” (New Terra) is doing quite well as did his “In the Still of the Night”. Adrian Bal has “Christmas Is Coming” (Bal) that is strong. Carmen & Camille bring us “Christmas Kiss” (TwinSpin Music) and Pullman Standard bring us “Happy Holidays To All” (Coast). I’d like to take this time to extend my best Holiday wishes to all of you out there, I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and an even better New Year.

Colbie is an amazing talent and we’re so happy to have her back with such a great new track. Those fabulous Plain White T`s are back. Everybody is singing the praises of their latest offering entitled “Giving Tree” (Hollywood) and for good reason. One Direction has released one of their best yet. “Story Of My Life” (Columbia/Sony) was recently performed on the American Music Awards and on X Factor and this is a song that you just can’t get out of your head. We just hope that radio responds accordingly and gives this song a fair shot. Christina Perri has a monster hit on her hands. “Human” (Atlantic/ WEA) is the single that is getting raves from many of our music and program directors. She’s another gem of a talent and we’re thrilled to see she’s been given a fair chance at radio. Gavin DeGraw has a solid new single out at radio and make no mistake about that. “Make A Move” (RCA/RLG) finds him at his very best and the numbers are starting to look solid for this gem. The band Passenger has really built quite the following in record time. Radio programmers are raving about their “Let Her Go” (Nettwerk) and this has set them up for some amazing things in the future. Imagine Dragons keep building by leaps and bounds and can’t be stopped at any measure. “Demons” (Interscope) is their latest smash and what a stellar band this outfit has become. Also keeping a streak of hits alive and well is the great Katy Perry. Her latest single “Unconditionally” (Capitol) is yet another song that you just can’t get out of your head. You will no doubt see huge things ahead for this strong single. Jason Derulo keeps his hit list growing by leaps and bounds. He can now add the single “Marry Me” (Beluga Heights/WB) to his very healthy catalogue. It’s that time of year again my friends when Christmas music fills the air. No one is getting into the spirit more than Kelly Clarkson. Her new Holiday CD is a smash hit and songs like “Underneath The Tree” RCA/RLG) keep pulling in some rather impressive numbers. This will no doubt be a very merry Kelly Clarkson Christmas. Johnny Mathis has teamed up with the always cleaver and hustling Jim Brickman for another holiday gem. “Sending You A Little Christmas” (Columbia/Sony) is fast becoming a classic and with this team working together now, there are endless possibilities. Michael Rapp has made quite the splash this holiday season. His “Christmas Is For Kids” (Stage Too) is exploding at radio and many of our music and program directors are all over this song in a very big way. Allen D also has a gem that is getting rave reviews. His new “Christmas Song” (New Terra) that was actually recorded for a television special years ago is also becoming an instant classic. Move over “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer” because Jesse & The Hogg Brothers are coming to get you. Their new “Don’t Mess With Christmas” (Black & Blue Music) is a holiday smash that is no doubt here to stay for years to come. Formats from AC to Country are enjoying this brilliant piece so give it some spins. This is also our Best of 2013 so please take note on some exceptional artists. Matt Gonzo Roehr has a real gem on his hands with “Dreamer” (Gonzo) that deserves your attention. Marsha Jewell has had a banner year and her current single “You” recently hit #1 on our AC40 Indie chart. Allen D and his “In the Still of the Night” (New Terra) has made him an AC favorite and Frank D’Angelo has had a banner year with his “Break IT Down” (BKCI) also making the top of our Indie charts. I want to personally with all of my stations and artist the very best Merry Christmas and a super Happy Holiday.

ALL ROADS

LEAD TO NASHVILLE If you’re a musician, at some point, the city of Nashville will be in your plans. Music City USA has earned its namesake. For decades, aspiring young, and not so young country artists have packed up all of their belongings and moved to the birthplace of country music as we all know it. A few were overnight successes. It took others a while to make a splash. And still others found odd jobs and waited years, and finally got their break. While it’s true not everybody that sets out to become a country superstar makes the grade- in fact, it’s hard to be considered in the Nashville elite as an “A” lister- that doesn’t stop many from finding out what all the fuss is about. Nashville is still country music’s home. But it’s quickly becoming the home for artists of all genres to see, and be seen. There is one particular area that Nashville is successful in keeping traditional, and deems it important enough every year to draw radio station programmers and music directors to the city. Sure, it’s a party to some extent, but the Country Radio Seminar- CRS- is not duplicated anywhere in the country by any other radio format. There’s a lot to be said about your country music superstar. I take notice and pride in the fact that when an artist wins an award, more times than not, they will 16

thank RADIO as part of being their success. Country artists take the time to talk to stations, and in turn their audience base, and make them feel like they’re part of the family. Because, really, the listener is to the true country music artist. And vice versa. That’s why radio stations like the legendary WSM are known worldwide. Country programmers mingle with artists and attend seminars each year that both inform and entertain. Networking is everything. And it is much easier now than ever before to network and never spend a dime on hotels, meals, and functions. But then, you miss out on the true meaning of CRS. Shaking hands. Have a beverage. Share ideas. No matter WHAT you do in life, it’s always better to try and do it in person. CRS has never lost touch with that human element. CRS brings all together once a year to place a face with the name. Many programmers have gone for years. Many go one year, and move on, and never go again. Same with promoters and record label personnel. But truth be told, CRS is really a must-attend function for programmers, and artists, too. Showcases for new artists are months in the planning for a one hour set to grab somebody’s attention. It’s not by fluke that the Grammy awards named a country crossover hit, “Need You Now” by Lady Antebellum, as the song of the year. This multi-format hit had a hook that was unforgettable and all of us could relate to that one person that we really “needed” at some point in our life. Country is real. Country is home. Country is roots. Most, if not all that attend every year, leave with those sentiments. And a sad realization that it will be another year before we all come together again. NMW - DECEMBER 13, 2013

MUSIC BIZ Katy Perry: I’m sick Katy Perry’s hectic lifestyle has “finally” caught up with her. The singer recently announced the Prismatic World Tour for next year and has been busy promoting it alongside her latest album, Prism. It seems the 29-year-old has realised she needs to slow down after falling ill. “I...am...finally...sick. Gonna do my best but if I don’t stop as much as usual pls don’t take it personally kittens! Mommacat needs rest! (sic),” the star apologised to her fans on Twitter. Katy appears to have been doing everything she can in order to ward off the winter chill. However, even a healthy diet couldn’t prevent her falling sick this time. “There is nothing better than matzo ball soup from Katz’ deli on a cold winters day! #foodtweet (sic),” she wrote on Twitter recently. Shortly before announcing she would need a rest, Katy was apparently spotted on a dinner date with One Direction’s Niall Horan. The pretty brunette and the 20-year-old singer have been close since meeting on The X Factor UK in 2010 and they reportedly dined at Soho House in New York City together yesterday. While her friendship with the blond heartthrob seems to be flourishing, Katy hinted she doesn’t feel the same way about everyone in her life. “Have you ever met someone who is completely fantastic in person but utterly obnoxious on social media? #whythedisconnect? (sic),” she asked her Twitter followers. Katy’s tour will start in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on May 7 next year.

Britney ‘protected from bad reviews’

Britney Spears’ poor album reviews are reportedly being kept from her. The princess of pop is about to start her Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, but is being kept in the dark about the negative comments her album is receiving. Britney Jean is the 32-year-old’s eighth studio album, and comes after a two-year break following the split between her and long-time record label, Jive Records. “Britney’s manager, Larry Rudolph, and father, Jamie, won’t allow her to see any of the bad reviews. Britney doesn’t even have access to the internet and lives in a bubble!” a source told RadarOnline. “Her team will allow her to believe that the album is being well received. No-one wants to upset Britney. If she were to read anything negative, it could send her into a bad tailspin and both Larry and Jamie know that can’t happen with her upcoming shows in Vegas about to launch.” Her father acts as conservator to Britney’s estate and manages both her financial affairs and daily life. The latest reviews for the album have been less than complimentary, with ABC News posting a particularly damning opinion. “I can’t quite recommend Britney Jean. It’s a conflicted record with too many flaws to NMW - DECEMBER 13, 2013

be considered even good on the whole, but it does show some promise. “Britney Spears is still very much a pop confection, but those repeated lines in Perfume ultimately almost save the day. For one fleeting moment, she had me smiling,” commented ABC reviewer Allan Raible. Although critics haven’t been impressed, Britney’s fans are and have helped the album reach number one on iTunes.

Ed’s Dwarf Song

Ed Sheeran wrote his song for The Hobbit from the “perspective of being a dwarf”. The singer-songwriter panned the track I See Fire for sequel The Desolation of Smaug, which is out this month. Ed was instructed by director Peter Jackson to focus on a particular part of the movie when writing the song and the musician also tried to get into the right mindset. “I’ve never been a dwarf, but I’ve wrote a song from the perspective of being a dwarf,” he told MTV News. “Peter said, ‘Focus on the last ten minutes. That’s what the song needs to reflect.’ He said, ‘Write a song that takes the audience by the hand and leads them from Middle Earth back into reality.’ So, yeah, I tried to do that.” Lyrics in the heartfelt piece include the lines ‘If this is to end in fire/ Then we shall all burn together/ Watch the flames climb high/ Into the night/ Calling out ‘father’/ Stand by and we will/ Watch the flames burn auburn on the mountain side’. Ed was treated to a special preview of the finished feature before the world premiere. When he attended the starstudded screening, the 22-year-old admits he became so engrossed in the movie, his own song came as a surprise to him. “I actually forgot my song was in the film,” he sheepishly admitted. “I’m such a Tolkien and Peter Jackson fan, I was watching the film just assuming that was the premiere to watch the film. I was watching it and then the song came on and I was like, ‘Oh, yep. That’s why I’m here. Cool.’ But I was enjoying it that much, I forgot. “

Bieber’s Graffiti ‘saved’ by hotel

Justin Bieber’s graffiti wall continues to cause controversy, as a hotel is apparently determined to keep it. Last week the popstar sprayed a hotel wall in Brisbane, Australia, with pictures of monsters. Mayor Tom Tate then issued a video message to Justin ordering him to clean it up. However, the Australian hotel tagged by the heartthrob appears to be determined to defy the mayor’s ultimatum. ‘The hotel is going so far as to protect it from being cleaned up,’ reports TMZ. ‘They’re so proud of the Bieb’s handiwork... they’re covering it with a black tarp so no one can remove it.’ ‘We’re told the cover-up is there to shield the graffiti from rain and sun... but clearly it also sends a message. HANDS OFF BIEBER’S MASTERPIECE,’ the website

added. Earlier this week Tate made it clear that he would not stand for Justin’s behaviour. Although charges have not been made against the singer, the mayor clearly isn’t happy with the graffiti. “I’ve got a message for pop princess Justin Beaver,” he said in a video message. “We love your music but we hate your graffiti and your vandalism here in our city. Mate, you’ve got two choices - come back and clean up your mess or come back and sing at the [Mayor’s Christmas Carols event] on the 7th of December.’ Justin is believed to have created the mural after returning to his hotel following a show and his actions were caught on camera.

Ronan Keating Joins Postman Pat: The Movie

Ronan Keating has been signed up as the singing voice of Postman Pat in the upcoming Postman Pat: The Movie, which will be released in CG 3-D Stereoscopic in cinemas across the UK on Friday 23rd May 2013. Keating said ‘It’s been a true honour to help bring Postman Pat’s singing voice to life. I grew up watching Pat and all the great characters in Greendale so I can’t wait to take my kids along to see them all on the big screen.’ Keating joins the renowned voice cast, which is led by actor Stephen Mangan (Episodes, Green Wing, Dirk Gently) as Postman Pat. Academy Award® and BAFTA® Award Winner Jim Broadbent (Iris, Moulin Rouge!), Rupert Grint, who achieved international fame as Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter film series, and David Tennant (Doctor Who, Harry Potter) will join Mangan and Keating in bringing the world of Postman Pat to life on the big screen. In addition to singing all of Postman Pat’s songs, Keating also has a cameo appearance in the film, appearing as a contestant who competes against Pat for a coveted prize. The film finds Pat, everyone’s favourite postman, coming face-to-face with the temptations of money, status and a shiny new suit when he enters a national TV talent show competition that threatens to tear him away from his hometown of Greendale and his family and friends. What happens when kindness meets selfishness? When local fame meets global notoriety? A nice cup of tea is kicked aside by a frappacappucino? Pat is set to find out as he falls for the ageold temptation of the grass being greener.

One Direction Secure Top Spot In U.S.

One Direction’s ‘Midnight Memories’ will easily be the number one album in the USA this week with more than 500,000 sales securing its position. According to HitsDailyDouble. com, ‘Midnight Memories’ sold 530,000 albums and easily replaced Eminem ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2’ at the top of the US chart. Eminem sold 195,000 units.

The only other top 10 debut is Garth Brooks ‘Blame It All On My Roots’ at no 3 with 190,000 sales. Struggling Lady Gaga ‘ArtPop’ reclaimed some ground but will stay at no 7 with 115,000 sales in America. The biggest drops were Five Finger Death Punch ‘’The Wrong Side Of Heaven’ which falls from no. 2 to no. 25 and Daughty ‘Baptized’ which falls from no. 5 to no. 21.

Gaga Will Have Fans On Stage

Lady Gaga says she will pull at least 20 fans on stage every night for her new tour. The singer announced new North American concert dates for The ARTPOP Ball, which kicks off in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida on May 4th. According to Gaga, fans will get a chance to meet the singer every night she performs. ‘meet and greets are still free from the monster pit. I will still bring up fans and give out backstage passes,’ she tweeted. ‘we are also selling meet & greets, the most expensive tkt, which puts you ON the stage for the performance. we did this to scale tkt pricing so everyone could have a chance to go & I could make some tkt prices much lower outside US too (sic).’ According to Gaga, the more expensive tickets would mean fans got to sit near the piano as she performed. She also reiterates that even if people opt for a normal ticket, they still have a chance of getting on stage. ‘yes, you will also sit on the stage the entire performance around 1 of the piano, just feet away from me. i will still pull about 20 fans at least out of the monster pit everynight, and if you get picked its free!!’ Gaga added.

Today Shazam has released its figures for the highest ranking artists and songs of this year, alongside its annual predictions of artists that it expects will break during the coming year, with Avicii adding a number of accolades to an already extensive list of impressive firsts in 2013. Amassing a huge 26.5 million Shazams globally over the course of this year, Avicii is the most Shazamed electronic artist in the world in 2013 and the second most Shazamed artist overall. This ranks him above the likes of Rihanna, Daft Punk and Justin Timberlake, who all feature in the Top 10. ‘Wake Me Up!’, the first single to be taken from his debut album ‘True’, ranks as the second most Shazamed song in the world after ‘Blurred Lines’ with 14.7 million Shazams, ranking #1 in the UK and #2 in Australia, Italy and Spain as well as #4 in the US.

Kanye West reportedly wants to get married in France’s Palace of Versailles. The rapper proposed to reality TV star Kim Kardashian on her 33rd birthday and has been busy planning the nuptials ever since. There has been speculation that Kanye wants a grand venue for the lavish nuptials and has his heart set on the opulent European palace. “Kanye has never been married and wants a big [wedding],” a source told Us Weekly. Kim has previously hinted the pair could exchange vows in France. The pair, who welcomed daughter North into the world in June, are planning to tie the knot next summer. While Kim is seemingly keen for the wedding to be low-key following two failed marriages, Kanye is determined to make it a day to remember. “They are not working with a budget,’ added another insider. It was recently reported that the Yeezus star is considering celebrating the marriage in Los Angeles, New York City and Paris. He is even believed to have hired a team of assistants to help him organise it. ‘Kanye wants it to be the greatest show on earth. He wants fire-eaters, acrobats and special performances from his musical friends, including Jay Z,’ a

source recently told British magazine Grazia. ‘He’s even suggested hiring elephants for him and Kim to ride on and hand-crafted jewelled Maison Martin Margiela masks for them to wear at the altar.’ Kanye is no stranger to staging elaborate declarations of his love for Kim. When he proposed in October, the music star rented out San Francisco’s AT&T Park, hired a 50-piece orchestra and wrote the words ‘PLEEEASE MARRY MEEEE!!!’ on a giant screen.

Swift’s Santa Excitement

Taylor Swift is so excited about Christmas, she can’t stop shouting “Santa”. The pop star has been busy with her Red Tour, which will be in Australia throughout December. In order to get into the festive spirit on the road, Taylor and her team have been giving each other small presents. The star could barely contain herself when she found she’d been gifted a copy of the Beach Boys in concert. “The RedTour is doing Secret Santa. Just found this in my dressing room and ran down the halls screaming ‘SANTA!!!’ (sic),” she tweeted, attaching a picture of the record cover. Taylor, 23, is known for penning songs about her exes, which include One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles, John Mayer and Jake Gyllenhaal. She’s made millions with her catchy music and thinks her fame might be intimidating for potential new partners. ‘At least I suppose it might [be intimidating]. It’s not like I would look at a guy and say, ‘Hey, are you intimidated by me?’ I think that would be highly uncool on my part! I tend not to be the one to start conversations with guys, anyway. I’m a little more oldfashioned than that,” she recently told HELLO! magazine. ‘I assume that if someone is interested in me they will come up and talk to me - and if they want to call me up afterwards, then they will. ‘I do tend to write more songs when I have a broken heart, though, because when you’re in love, you’re just so fascinated by the fact you’re in love that you don’t take the time to write down everything that you’re feeling.’

- “For me, they were the Beatles,” said Jason Aldean about country music super group ALABAMA in ALABAMA & Friends, a one-hour concert event which premiered November 27 on Great American Country. “Through Randy’s voice, the songs, his charisma on stage, he had people in the palm of his hand. Watching the reaction those guys got from the crowd was part of the reason I wanted to be an entertainer.”

Billy Joel will become the first “franchise” singer at New York’s Madison Square Garden, playing one show per month until there is no longer demand. The venue made the announcement on Tuesday via press release. James L. Dolan, executive chairman of the Madison Square Garden Company, said “Since his first show in 1978, Billy has performed 46 shows at Madison Square Garden, including an unprecedented 12 consecutive sold-out shows that have earned Billy a spot among the Garden greats with a banner raised in his honor. Today, we take that relationship even further and are extremely honored to have Billy as The Garden’s first music franchise. This new partnership will ensure that someone who has been such an important figure in our past, will also be a major part of our future. We welcome Billy home and look forward to many unforgettable nights of music at the Garden.” The schedule has been set through may with a May 9 date, which also will be his 65th birthday, added to the already scheduled January 27, February 3, March 21 and April 18. Tickets go on sale for the new date to Citi card members on December 4 at 10 AM and to the general public on December 7 at 10 AM. Joel said in a statement “Performing at Madison Square Garden is a thrilling experience. I’ve played different venues all over the world, but there’s no place like coming home to The Garden. Since my first show in 1978, I’ve always looked forward to the energy of the crowd. I’m honored to be joining the Madison Square Garden family and look forward to taking the stage of the newly transformed Garden to create many more memorable nights.” He also told USA “I’ve been touring almost all my life. The idea of being on the road for long periods of time isn’t appealing to me at this point. I can commute to work, like everyone else does. You take the schlep factor out.” New York Governor Andrew Cuomo also commented on the new arrangement, saying “Today’s announcement that Billy Joel is joining the Madison Square Garden family as their first music franchise is truly a momentous occasion. It is particularly fitting that these two great icons are coming together to make entertainment

history right here in New York. I offer my congratulations to Billy Joel and Madison Square Garden and the millions of fans worldwide who will benefit from this collaboration for years to come.

Brown ‘sued for $3M’

Frank Ocean’s cousin is reportedly seeking a $3 million payout from Chris Brown. The singers and their entourages got into a fight in the parking lot of a Los Angeles recording studio in late January, during which Frank allegedly injured his finger. The Sweet Life hitmaker’s cousin, Sha’Keir Duarte, subsequently filed suit against Chris in August, according to various media reports. Now TMZ claims the man is seeking more than $3 million in damages. “Duarte claims Brown’s bodyguard brutalised him... and in his court docs he itemises his list of damages complete with price tags,” the outlet reports. Duarte is reportedly seeking $1 million for “pain suffering and inconvenience”, $1 million for “emotional distress”, $1 million in punitive damages and $60,000 for medical expenses. Chris earlier this year filed a countersuit against Duarte, in which he’s accused of kicking and punching the star and provoking the fight. While Frank was initially eager to see Chris prosecuted following the altercation, he later called for “peace” with the hip-hop star and declined to press charges. News of the damages allegedly being sought are the most recent in a string of legal woes for the Don’t Wake Me Up singer. Last month Chris was ordered to spend 90 days in a live-in anger management facility after he reportedly threw a rock through his mother’s car window while in rehab for rage issues. This act allegedly violated the terms of his probation from his 2009 attack on then-girlfriend Rihanna. The judge on his probation case will reportedly allow Chris to fly to Washington D.C. for legal matters relating to another pending criminal assault on alleged victim Isaac Parker. The man accused Chris of punching him in the nose when he tried to photobomb a picture the star was taking with a female fan. Chris could reportedly face up to 180 days in jail and an additional four years in prison if it’s determined he violated his probation by punching the man.

Katherine reportedly claims new evidence has emerged that will help her attorneys win the case. She also claims jury misconduct and general procedural errors were at play, the outlet reports. A judge has yet to rule on the request. Katherine filed suit against AEG in 2010 on behalf of herself and her son’s three children, Prince, 16, Paris, 15, and Blanket Jackson. She accused executives at the firm of acting negligently by hiring Conrad Murray to provide care for the singer during his illfated This Is It concert series in London. The former physician was sentenced to four years behind bars at the Los Angeles County men’s jail for involuntary manslaughter after a court found he administered the fatal dose of anaesthetic propofol to Michael as a sleep aid. He was released in October. After AEG was cleared, Katherine’s lawyers said they would ‘consider further legal options’. Her legal team has yet to publicly comment on the claims.

The singer currently has a holiday themed album called Christmas With Love out, which represents her passion for the holiday season. According to Leona, her many fresh experiences in 2013 will be expressed in the music she creates next year. ‘I’m hoping to get back in the studio in the New Year and start recording an album because I feel like I’ve been really inspired by so much,’ she told Perez Hilton. ‘I’ve done so many different things this year. I just recently did a film and then this album with a different genre that I’ve never done before. So I’ve been re-inspired.” Leona wants to share her wisdom with other young artists, especially fellow alumni of singing competitions like the X Factor. The pop star believes building up strong relationships are crucial to staying on path in the industry. “I feel like when I went into the show, I had a clear vision of what I wanted to do and I really bonded with Simon [Cowell], obviously,’ Leona said. ‘I feel like he helped me so much. With his advice and his guidance and mentoring, I was really able to do something I never thought would be possible.’ The singer strongly recommends working hard and sticking to your guns no matter what. According to Leona, surrounding yourself with people who are positive is crucial. ‘So I give the advice of, if you have a mentor, find someone that believes in you and have that support from them. Also have a clear vision of what you want for yourself and don’t compromise,’ she added.

Jason Aldean keeps his name high atop many Country artists once again. His new single “When She Says Baby” (Broken Bow/ Sony) is getting rave reviews and many of our music and program directors are all over this one big time. George Strait has a radio hit that deserves respect and attention. “I Got A Car” (MCA Nashville) is the latest and this one is quite a strong entry. Brad Paisley appears to have another winner on his hands. We’re not really sure about all the gossip going on between him and Carrie Underwood, but we can tell you that his new track “The Mona Lisa” (Arista Nashville) appears to be well on its way to bigger and better things. Thomas Rhett has come on the scene and make no mistake about that. His latest and greatest “Get Me Some Of That” (Valory Music/Universal) should keep this newcomer moving in the right direction. Kip Moore continues to build fans and friends at radio. His new single entitled “Young Love” (MCA Nashville) is pulling record phones for every spin and this track has the legs to go all the way. Eric Church has another winner on his hands. The song “The Outsiders” (EMI) is building huge spins just about everywhere and it appears that Eric is set for yet another great year at Country radio. Tyler Farr is picking up where he left off and that’s in a very good and strong position. He’s now taking the single “Whiskey In My Water” (Columbia Nashville) out for a spin and so far that car is driving just fine. I also really love the new one from Charlie Worsham. He’s really made something out of himself and in record time so the single “Want Me To” (WB/WEA) appears to be in good shape at this very early writing. Justin Moore is also having a very good run. Many of you out there just can’t seem to get enough of his single “Lettin’ The Night Roll” (Valory)and that’s quite alright with him. Sheryl Crow has been getting plenty of love and attention from Country radio. It seems like she may have found a new home after all. The single entitled “Callin’ Me When I’m Lonely” (WB/WEA) is just what radio is moving towards these days and that put’s Sheryl back in a very safe place. Ty Herndon has another gem on his hands. Everybody seems to really be loving his latest entry in “Lies I Told Myself” (Flying Island) and for very good reason. It seems to be one of his best songs yet, but we’ll see how that all play out over the next three to four weeks. Little Big Town continues to make friends at the format. Their latest offering, the single “Sober” (Capitol Nashville) appears to be putting them back in the race. It’s also been great to see the recent success of the Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert duet. That gem of a song “We Were Us” (Capitol Nashville) moved to the top of the charts so fast that it even made Blake Shelton’s head spin. He might re-consider putting his wife back on a few of his tracks. Toby Keith has got a good buzz going and make no mistake about that. “Shut Up And Hold On” (Show Dog/Universal) is the one many are out there raving about. Newcomers Dan & Shay are having a magical time as their debut single “19 You & Me” (WB/WEA) moves to much higher ground. This is our Best of 2013 so let’s look at a couple of standouts this year. One for sure has to be the young and talented Tobi Gordon. This talented young lady has had a song on the national charts [Hot Country Singles Index, Recurrent Chart, Christmas Chart, Continuing Recurrent Chart] every week for the last 4 years or 208 weeks. Newcomer Dennis Ledbetter has jump onto the charts and is getting raves for his stellar debut single “If You Drive Me to Drinking - I’ll Buy the Gas”. Kelly Parkes continues to be a solid indie winner to be sure. Vote for your favorites now on the New Music Weekly Website. Here’s wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

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 - DECEMBER 13, 2013

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

Noel Flynn An artist to be reckond with Meath, England man Noel Flynn grew up loving country music. The Athboy native, who lived in Nottingham, England for a number of years before returning to Meath,England spent four years as a DJ prior to recording his debut album. Flynn started singing professionally about three years ago. His first album, “Turn Back The Years”, was released in December 2009. A nice blend of Irish and American country, it featured songs as diverse as the Johnny McEvoy classic, “Long Before Your Time”, to Colin Raye’s “Love Me” and from the traditional folk song “Hard Times” to the Ernest Tubb number, “Thanks A Lot”. The album attracted a lot of attention in the Leinster region and provided Flynn with a strong platform to launch his singing career. However, it was the release of his follow-up single “Talking To Your Picture” that secured a lot of airplay on radio stations across Ireland, thus giving him his first major break on the circuit.

“I was honored to receive the Best Male Newcomer Award at the West Limerick 102 Country Music Awards in 2010,” says Noel. “My second album, “The Heart That Beats” in Ireland was released in 2011. It includes “Talking to Your Picture” which was sent to me by Richard Harte, “Wrong Oh So Wrong” written by Vic Holroyd, and “These Lips Don’t Know How To Say Goodbye”. This album is also a mixture of Irish and American country. “In January I decided to get a band together and hit the road. The band features Declan Reilly on bass and vocals, Padraig Harris on keyboard, accordion and vocal, Brian Walsh on drums and John Gleeson on lead guitar, dobro and vocals. I am delighted that my current single, a cover of the Don Williams song, “Lay Down Beside Me”, is getting great reviews and plenty of radio airplay at home and overseas.” Also my further two singles “The Way You Love Me” written by Mark Everett and “Let Me Be Your One And Only” written by Glen Flynn are both doing well on the airwaves as well. Flynn and his band look forward to performing at shows around Ireland and the UK in the times ahead. Additional details can be found at noelflynnmusic.com If you have a venue and wish to book Flynn please contact: Email: Noel.flynnmusic@gmail.com Tele: Noel on 0353 0862337414

The band’s sound is a combination of honest, refreshing, spirited pitch-perfect harmonies with dynamic and emotive breakdowns. Carrying the torch lit by iconic Victory bands A Day To Remember and Taking Back Sunday, These Hearts has arrived and you read and hear about them first right here at New Music Weekly. The New York based indie rock band Born Cages is set to release their Sidelines EP via Razor & Tie. The band will hit the road this summer as well.

Within one year the young band had already released an EP, opened two sold-out shows for Guns N’ Roses and shared stages with such bands as Gold Fields, Mother Mother, and Ludo. The band has had music played on Q104.3 in New York and recently recorded a session at the Gibson NYC showroom that premiered on Purevolume.
