KIP MOORE PREMIERES THE VIDEO FOR ‘LAST SHOT.’

Kip Moore is striking a chord today, premiering his powerful music video for his new single “Last Shot,” exclusively with Entertainment Tonight, available to watch here.  Directed by Moore’s longtime collaborator and friend PJ Brown, the narrative is an inspiring interpretation of the sentiment behind the track as it follows the poignant journey of a young girl as she faces the reality of her life being cut short, but with an uplifting outlook of making everyday count. “Last Shot” is the second single taken from Moore’s revered third studio album SLOWHEART and follows his fourth No. One hit “More Girls Like You.”

“When we first talked about the video for this song, I felt like I wanted to tap into the deeper meaning behind it,” said Moore. “How that feeling of desperation and realization that every second matters, can sometimes be the motivation you need to really take action. I’ve always been a big believer of living in the moment and I hope people are inspired in some way by this video to do the same.”

Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Kip Moore’s third studio album “SLOWHEART,” is continuing to garner praise by critics across the country as he “blends the passion and connection for which he’s known with a new self-awareness that will speak to both commercial and underground audiences” (USA Today) as well as wrapping 2017 on multiple “Best Of” lists including Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, UpRoxx, Bobby Bones Show, Taste Of Country, Sounds Like Nashville, The Boot, PopMatters and Whiskey Riff. SLOWHEART follows the acclaim that surrounded Moore’s sophomore album WILD ONES heralded as “an impressively singular release from Music Row” by The Guardian and his PLATINUM debut album UP ALL NIGHT that spawned three No. One hit singles including GOLD certified “Beer Money,” PLATINUM certified “Hey Pretty Girl,” and the DOUBLE PLATINUM breakout hit “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck.

ERIC CHURCH TAKES OVER THE NO. 1 POSITION ON THE COUNTRY CHARTS WITH ‘ROUND HERE BUZZ.’

Eric Church has taken “Round Here Buzz” to the top of the country charts. The song is from his album, Mr. Misunderstood, which he released as a surprise to his fans on the morning of the CMA Awards in 2015.

The North Carolina native co-wrote “Round Here Buzz” with Luke Dick and Jeff Hyde. He says the song contains a nostalgic, heartbreaking feel.

“I’ve done a few of these songs in my career; this nostalgic kind of song about the guy that kind of wishes things were different than they are,” says Eric. “I know a lot of people like that and like this from where I’m from. I’m from a small town, and I’ve just seen this. I think part of the reason, I feel like we’re pretty good at this kind of song, and I think part of it is because I’ve seen it, I’ve felt it. It’s a motive to me. So, I think with this song, there’s just something about it that’s always spoke to me.

You can catch Eric on this year’s GRAMMY Awards when he performs as part of a special tribute to honor the victims lost to gun violence and terrorism at various live music events last year, especially to those affected by the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas. He will be joined by Brothers Osborne and Maren Morris.

The 60 annual GRAMMY Awards will air live from Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sunday (January 28th) beginning at 7:30p ET on CBS.

So, I think with this song, there’s just something about it that’s always spoke to me. It was one I was a pretty big champion for on the album and one that I think will be a hit for us, and the right kind of hit, not just one that’s a hit. One that has emotive qualities.”

CARRIE UNDERWOOD IS A BIG FAN OF LIVE SPORTING EVENTS.

As a former softball player, the wife (and cheerleader) of a former NHL star player (the Nashville Predators’ Mike Fisher), the voice of Sunday Night Football for five years, Carrie Underwood is truly a fan of sporting events.

“I love sporting events. I mean I think it’s just the excitement, the drama. You’ve got all these people on the ice or on the field or on the court, and they’re just giving it their all, and big sporting events are just amazing,” says Carrie. “There’s just something really special about live sporting events, and football, I’ve been watching it my entire life, so it’s fun to be a part of it in some way and to be a part of the biggest game of the year is really special.”

Carrie is set to open NBC’s Super Bowl LII (the Big Game) on February 4th with a video filmed last year for her anthemic song, “The Champion,” which was just released globally. Carrie co-wrote “The Champion” last year with fellow songwriters Brett James, Chris DeStefano, and Christopher Bridges PKA Ludacris, who she asked to collaborate on the event song. NBC Sports will also incorporate “The Champion” into its coverage of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games.

Audio / Carrie Underwood is a huge fan of live sporting events and is so excited to be a part of this year’s Super Bowl (or Big Game) with her song, “The Champion.”

There’s rivalries, and it’s competition and you can just feel it in the air when you go see, I mean, really any sporting event live is just absolutely amazing. We have our heroes. It’s in us. There are heroes and villains for all of us, and it’s just sitting down and getting to watch that and root for your favorite team. I don’t know.

ERIC CHURCH AND BROTHERS OSBORNE, ALONG WITH MAREN MORRIS, WILL HONOR THE VICTIMS OF THE ROUTE 91 HARVEST FESTIVAL DURING A SPECIAL GRAMMY PERFORMANCE.

In addition to honoring musical excellence, the Recording Academy® will also take a moment to honor the victims lost to gun violence and terrorism at various live music events over the course of the past year. In a special GRAMMY® tribute performed by three of the artists who participated in the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, current GRAMMY nominees Brothers Osborne, past GRAMMY nominee Eric Church, and GRAMMY winner and current nominee Maren Morris will come together for the touching segment.

“Live music events have always provided a safe space for fans to gather in a shared celebration of music. Sadly, that wasn’t always the case this past year,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the Recording Academy. “We believe it’s incredibly important to pay tribute to those who lost their lives in these senseless tragedies and to remind musicians and music lovers alike that live music will continue to be a powerful force that unites us all.”

“In many ways, our show encapsulates the year in music,” said Ken Ehrlich, executive producer of the GRAMMY Awards. Although that usually means a focus on achievement and excellence, sadly, last year was marred by a number of senseless tragedies that took place at live music events. We didn’t feel like we’d be doing our jobs if we didn’t reflect on these tremendous losses.”

Performing for the first time on the GRAMMY stage, Brothers Osborne are nominated again this year in Best Country Duo/Group Performance (“It Ain’t My Fault”).

 

GRAMMY Award winner Maren Morris is currently nominated for Best Country Solo Performance (“I Could Use A Love Song”).

Previously announced GRAMMY performers include Little Big Town, Alessia Cara, Cardi B, Miley Cyrus, Childish Gambino, Daddy Yankee, Luis Fonsi, Elton John, Kesha, Khalid, Lady Gaga, Kendrick Lamar, Logic, Patti LuPone, Bruno Mars, P!nk, Ben Platt, Sam Smith, SZA and U2.

The 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards will be broadcast live from Madison Square Garden in New York City January 28th at 7:30pm ET on CBS. Previously announced GRAMMY performers include Alessia Cara, Cardi B, Miley Cyrus, Childish Gambino, Daddy Yankee, Luis Fonsi, Elton John, Kesha, Khalid, Lady Gaga, Kendrick Lamar, Little Big Town, Logic, Patti LuPone, Bruno Mars, P!nk, Ben Platt, Sam Smith, SZA, and U2.

Performing for the first time on the GRAMMY stage, Brothers Osborne are nominated again this year in Best Country Duo/Group Performance (“It Ain’t My Fault”).

Audio / Eric Church reflects on 2017, his Holdin’ My Own Tour and how he has been forever changed by the tragic events involving many of his fans at the Route 91 festival in Las Vegas.

Eric Church (fans are Vegas fans) OC: …came out. :44
“Talking about the year, a lot of people have asked ‘Why did Vegas bother you so much?’ I mean, it bothered all of us, but why maybe I took it more personal was because the same people that had been there all year, 20, 30 songs with their arms around each other’s shoulders that had became family to me, were the people that were affected that night. I think there was a part of me that went away that night too. And I think how I respond to that as a writer, [I’m] not sure yet. I’m working on it, and I may already have, I mean, that’s really what ‘Why Not Me’ was my, at least some way for me to process it and heal, maybe offer something for other people, but I did that as much for myself as anything else. I didn’t try to say ‘Hey, let me write a song.’ It just happened. It came out.”

KEITH URBAN (AND FANS) ANNOUNCE ‘GRAFFITI U’ WORLD TOUR AND TITLE OF NEW ALBUM DURING A SURPRISE POP-UP SHOW IN NASHVILLE.

At an unannounced pop-up show last night at Nashville’s Exit/In, GRAMMY Award winner Keith Urban enlisted his fans to officially announce his “GRAFFITI U WORLD TOUR 2018,” and also took the opportunity to reveal that his forthcoming album will be called GRAFFITI U.  During a 2-hour surprise show, in front of a crowd of 350 lucky fans that poured out onto the streets, Urban also took time to introduce and perform with GRAMMY nominee Kelsea Ballerini, who will accompany Urban on the North American leg, as his supporting act.

It was Urban’s fans who took center stage for the tour announcement – a live streamed event that saw them during the feed, in cities across the country announcing the “GRAFFITI U WORLD TOUR 2018” on white poster boards –  http://smarturl.it/KU-FanVideo.

“I’ve been full-on writing, recording, collaborating and creating with some incredibly talented people for GRAFFITI U, a lot of whom I’ve never worked with before,” said Urban.  “I can hear how some of the songs will translate live already, which really makes putting on a new show so exhilarating and I loved having our fans included in the announcement of the tour because it’s their tour too.”

The 58-city tour will kick off on June 15th at St. Louis’s Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre and will include 10 shows in Canada (supporting act TBA) as well as visits to cities in Nevada, Oregon, Alabama and Arkansas that Urban has yet to headline.  Urban’s shows have become concert events that electrify.  They’re unexpected, if not unpredictable, and have been hailed by media around the world as a “concert experience not to be missed.” The tour will feature many of Urban’s 23 #1 songs, as well as brand new songs that have never been performed live and an all-new concert production that promises to be as spectacular as never before.

“I remember hearing Keith Urban songs that stopped me in my tracks and made me want to drop everything and chase that kind of lyric and heart filled artistry,” says Ballerini. “He’s the best in the business and I can’t wait to fangirl and learn from him this year. Truly an honor to tour with him.”

“Reuniting this summer and heading back out on the road with my friends Lady Antebellum feels like a home away from home,” said Rucker. “It’s going to be an incredible summer, and I can’t wait to see y’all out there!”

Currently nominated for GRAMMY “Best Country Album” and “Best Country Duo/Group Performance,” Lady Antebellum recently released the title track from their No. One selling album HEART BREAK (Capitol Records Nashville). The new single from the multi-PLATINUM trio 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). HEART BREAK follows more than 18 million album units, nine No. 1 hits, ACM and CMA “Vocal Group of the Year” trophies three years in a row and countless other honors including seven GRAMMYs, Billboard Music Awards, People’s Choice Awards and Teen Choice Awards. For more information visit www.ladyantebellum.com.
 
Rucker first attained multi-Platinum status in the music industry as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of GRAMMY award-winning Hootie & the Blowfish. Since re-introducing himself to the world as a country artist, he has released five consecutive chart-topping albums and earned a whole new legion of fans. Rucker’s Platinum-certified debut country album Learn To Live and follow-up album Charleston, SC 1966 produced five No. 1 singles, “Come Back Song,” “This,” “Alright,” “It Won’t Be Like This For Long” and “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It.” In 2012, he achieved a lifelong dream when he became a member of the Grand Ole Opry, and won his third career GRAMMY award in 2014 for his 4x Platinum selling cover of Old Crow Medicine Show’s “Wagon Wheel,” off his True Believers album. Southern Style, his fourth studio country album, includes No. 1 single “Homegrown Honey,” co-written by Rucker, label mate Charles Kelley of Lady Antebellum and Nathan Chapman. His latest album on Capitol Nashville, When Was The Last Time features Rucker’s eighth No. 1 on country radio, “If I Told You.” The album’s second single, “For The First Time,” is currently Top 25 and climbing the country charts. 
 

Breakout country artist and People Magazine’s “One to Watch,” Nashville-based Russell Dickerson continues to overtake airwaves and arenas with his Top 5 GOLD single “Yours,” repeatedly called the “biggest love song of the year,” off his debut album by the same name. The “hypnotic” (CMT) crooner kicks off what promises to be his landmark year as Billboard’s No.1_Emerging_Artist, a Spotify RISE artist and CMT’s 18 for 2018. With a deep appreciation for and responsibility to his loyal fan following, Dickerson understands the importance of real connectivity, spending as much time as he can on the road in front of the people who made him the #1 country pre-order for weeks (2017 saw tour billings that included Thomas Rhett’s “Home Team” Tour and Florida Georgia Line’s “Smooth” tour, and finished with his first headlining tour). His EP premiered at No. 1 on Billboard’s Heat Seeker Chart and No. 2 on iTunes Country chart, with “Yours” clocking over 100 million streams to date. The singer and songwriter is the launch artist on Triple Tigers Records, a joint venture with Sony Music. Dickerson’s “Blue Tacoma” was also recently featured in the tenth installment of the “X-Men” film franchise, “Logan”. @russelled | www.russelldickerson.com

Lady A (Darius Tour) 1 OC: …during the day. :59
CHARLES: “One of the biggest reasons that we kind of, together with Darius, approached this concept of touring again together was because we had so much fun last time. When was the last time we toured together, Dave?” DAVE: “It was 2012.” CHARLES: “2012, and still today, it was the biggest tour we had ever had, and it was just so much fun. The one thing that I love about Darius, not only is he a great guy, but he’s a seasoned entertainer. We finally feel like too as a band, we’ve been at this for over 10 years now, we feel like we know how to hold a crowd and put on a really fun, entertaining show. And I just feel like when the crowds come, they’re gonna get over three hours worth of music that is just straight sing-a-long, constantly, and that’s what we want. Darius is just such a great entertainer, great friends, we’re gonna have a lot of collaborative moments on it too, and obviously, I’ll have my golf buddy there with me during the day.”
