• LUKE BRYAN RELEASES HIS NEW SINGLE, “WAVES.”

    Luke Bryan just released his brand new single, “Waves,” this morning (April 9th). The song, written by Zach Crowell, Ryan Hurd and Chase McGill, is featured on the deluxe edition of his album, BORN HERE LIVE HERE DIE HERE, which is available today.

    He immediately gravitated toward the song the moment he heard it. “’Waves’ is a song about kids falling in love during the summer and just all the images and everything about just how beautiful that summer love is and how the emotions just keep coming in waves,” he says. “‘Waves’ is kind of a play on words, and I feel in love with the song the second I heard it.”

    BORN HERE LIVE HERE DIE HERE was originally set to release last April, but due to the pandemic the project was moved to August and debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, making it Luke’s sixth consecutive appearance in the top position. The album became his eleventh top 10 album on Billboard’s Top 200 since his first appearance with 2009’s DOIN’ MY THING.

    The album contains his current smash single “Down To One” as well as four No. 1 hits so far- “Knockin’ Boots,” “What She Wants Tonight,” “One Margarita” and “Down To One,” which landed as Luke’s 26th career #1 single.

  • CHRIS STAPLETON MISSES THE ROAD BUT HAS LOVED SPENDING TIME WITH HIS FAMILY OVER THE PAST YEAR.

    After more than a year of being in the midst of a global pandemic, we, as a people, have missed out on a lot of things, but there have also been some silver linings for some of us. While country artists haven’t been truly able to tour this past year and many of their bands and crews unable to work, it’s been tough. Many artists are looking forward to hitting the road, however many will miss the closeness and togetherness they’ve had with their families. Chris Stapleton says he misses touring, but he’s been able to be there for his wife and five children, and he’ll miss that when he’s able to tour safely again.

    “I miss touring deeply and I’m so ready to reach the light at the end of the tunnel and maybe get back out there and get to play for some folks, and I hope we get to do that very, very soon, whenever that’s safe in a public health kind of way, you know,” says Chris. “The silver lining and the mixed blessing during the pandemic for me is I’ve gotten to spend more time being a dad and being with my children than I’ve ever gotten to do certainly as a touring musician. I have three children under the age of three and I have two older ones that are 12 and 10. When I go in to get the boys in the morning, and I open the door, they say ‘Daddy’ before I even open the door, and I’ve never really had that before. So, that’s kind of a neat thing for me to get to have that, so I’m thankful for that and I’m grateful for that. As much as I look forward to getting back out on the road, I’ll miss a little bit of that.”

    Chris is currently poised to top the country charts with his single, “Starting Over.”

    Audio / Chris Stapleton says as much as he misses being on the road playing for fans, he has enjoyed being at home with his children this past year.

  • ERIC CHURCH’S ACM ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR NOMINATION MEANS MORE TO HIM NOW THAT HE’S THE REIGNING CMA ENTERTAINER.

    Going into this year’s ACM Awards as the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year, Eric Church is well-aware of the responsibility the title brings to him and what it would mean to him, but he’s spent the past few months trying to live up to its title.

    “I did not know what that award would mean to me because we’d never won that award (laughs) and never thought we would, and I felt a responsibility,” says Eric. “I know what that award means to the format; I know what that means historically, and I tried to live up to that. I think with the vaccinations, I think with the touring, I think with the things we’ve tried to do during this, I’ve done more in that regard than I ever would’ve, because I understand the people that came before me, and I understand the people that will come after me. So, that nomination means more to me now than it probably ever has, because we’ve won. I think representing the format that I adore is something that I’m trying to live up to.”

    In addition to the nomination for Entertainer, Eric is also up for Male Artist of the Year and Music Event of the Year with Luke Combs on their chart-topping song “Does To Me.”

    The 56th Academy of Country Music Awards, hosted by Keith Urban and Mickey Guyton, will air Sunday, April 18th beginning at 8pm ET/delayed PT on CBS.

    The reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year, who just announced The Gather Again Tour kicking off in September, is set to release the first of his three new records, Heart, April 16th. He created the middle album of the trilogy, &, specifically for the Church Choir (his fan club), which will be available exclusively to them only as a vinyl record on April 20th. The third installment, Soul, is set for release April 23rd.

    Eric is currently making his way up the country charts with his latest single, “Hell of a View.”

    Audio / Eric Church says the ACM Entertainer of the Year nomination means more to him now than ever before since being named the CMA Entertainer of the Year last year.

I know what that award means to the format; I know what that means historically, and I tried to live up to that. I think with the vaccinations, I think with the touring, I think with the things we’ve tried to do during this, I’ve done more in that regard than I ever would’ve, because I understand the people that came before me, and I understand the people that will come after me.

  • CARRIE UNDERWOOD’S “MY SAVIOR: LIVE FROM THE RYMAN” RAISES OVER $112,000 FOR SAVE THE CHILDREN FROM VIRTUAL LIVE CONCERT STREAMED ON EASTER SUNDAY.

    This past weekend, on Easter Sunday, Carrie Underwood brought her new album, My Savior, to life with “My Savior: Live From The Ryman,” a virtual live concert performance from the iconic, Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN, also known as the “Mother Church of Country Music.”  Underwood performed the gospel hymns she grew up singing for this special global concert event, which livestreamed exclusively on her official Facebook page on Sunday, April 4th, raising over $112,000 for Save the Children worldwide.

    Nearly 2.5 million fans from the United States, Canada, UK, Australia, Brazil, Ghana, Norway, Germany, South Africa, Mexico, Sweden and beyond, viewed the full show and millions more viewed exclusive performance clips during the 48-hour window for the free event which featured special appearances by gospel superstar CeCe Winans, who performed “Great Is Thy Faithfulness” with Underwood and singer/songwriter Bear Rinehart, frontman of the rock band, NEEDTOBREATHE, who joined Underwood on “Nothing But The Blood Of Jesus.”  Southern gospel and harmonica legend Buddy Greene and 10-time CMA Musician of the Year Mac McAnally, both of whom played on the My Savior album, also appeared with Underwood. Select performance videos from the event can be viewed on Carrie’s My Savior playlist here.

    “On a day normally reserved for church congregations and family, Facebook brought Carrie Underwood and her My Savior album directly into people’s homes worldwide in real time to celebrate Easter in an unprecedented way, allowing for both celebration and a direct giving campaign to benefit children in need all over the world,” said Cindy Mabe, UMG Nashville President. “The results were humbling and powerful and speak to Carrie’s one of a kind ability to connect, shine and uplift audiences around the world.”

    My Savior debuted #1 on the Billboard Country and Christian Charts, as well as #4 on the Billboard 200 chart this week with 72,644 SPS units.  Additionally, the album is #1 on Billboard’s Top Albums, Top Country Albums, Top Christian Albums and is the #1 Current Digital Album.  My Savior is Underwood’s ninth consecutive album to debut at #1 on the Billboard Country Chart – extending her record as the only Country artist to achieve that feat with all nine of her studio album releases from the beginning of her career.

    Donations were accepted throughout the streaming event and for 48 hours after, to benefit Save the Children, which works in over 100 countries to ensure that children grow up healthy, educated and safe.  In the U.S., Save the Children reaches children through early education, literacy and child hunger programs, helps prepare children for emergencies and responds when disaster strikes.  To date, Save the Children has supported 30 million people affected by coronavirus around the world, including nearly 12 million children, making sure they have enough to eat, can access healthcare, can continue their education and are protected from violence.  Before COVID-19, 1 in 7 children in the U.S. faced food insecurity, which has now increased to 1 in 4.  Since March 2020, Save the Children has delivered nearly 21 million meals to kids in need across the U.S.  For more information, visit www.savethechildren.org.

  • PRISCILLA BLOCK ANNOUNCES SELF-TITLED DEBUT EP AVAILABLE APRIL 30TH.

    Mercury Nashville rising star Priscilla Block announces her major label debut EP. In an interview this morning with SiriusXM’s Storme Warren, Priscilla dropped the news of her self-titled, six-song EP coming out April 30.

    “This EP is such a vulnerable side of who I am and where I’ve been,” shares Priscilla. “It’s my story of falling apart in order to find myself again. I hope that when you hear these songs, they make you feel that it’s ok to not be perfect and realize that sometimes we need the lows to value the highs… AND ONCE YOU REGAIN THAT CONFIDENCE… LET IT SHOW BABY!”

    Priscilla Block draws listeners in with her unfiltered, relatable songwriting and catchy melodies and is one of country music’s hottest newcomers. Named an artist to watch by Amazon, Pandora, Spotify, HITS, CMT Next Women of Country and more, Priscilla wrote each of the six tracks featured on the PRISCILLA BLOCK EP including one of The New York Times Best Songs of 2020 and her current country radio single, “Just About Over You,” and her brand-new song out today, “Wish You Were The Whiskey.” Priscilla’s grassroots, fan-first approach continues as she plans to share the full track list via her socials in the weeks leading up to the April 30th EP release.

    Additionally, Priscilla is set to make her debut on the storied Grand Ole Opry May 1. Fans can tune in live on Circle TV or can watch it on a livestream on Circle All Access Facebook, YouTube and Twitter channels.

  • ERIC CHURCH IN THE ROUND: THE GATHER AGAIN TOUR.

    Reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year and current ACM Entertainer of the Year nominee Eric Church has his sights set on a return to the road with this morning’s announcement of a full arena tour. As first shared with the Church Choir and by Billboard magazine earlier today, The Gather Again Tour will kick off this fall at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky, and will visit 55 cities throughout the U.S. and Canada, culminating at Madison Square Garden in the spring of 2022.

     

    Making the most of the long-awaited opportunity to “gather again,” for the first time in his career Church will adopt an in-the-round set up, with the stage at the center of each arena floor in order to accommodate as many fans as possible. Tickets to all U.S. dates go on sale to the general public Friday, May 7 at 10 a.m. local time at www.EricChurch.com. Church Choir members may access tickets early via pre-sale on Tuesday, May 4 at 10 a.m. local time. On sale information for the Canadian dates will be announced soon.

    Church, praised by Rolling Stone in the lead review of the April 2021 print issue for how he “has maneuvered the Nashville system, remaining dedicated to the power of down-the-center hitmaking even as he’s helped expand the parameters of the genre,” has passionately taken a leadership role in the industry’s return to touring.

    “It became very clear to me that the only way to really get back to normal is through vaccinations. You’ve got to get needles in arms,” he shared with Billboard in the April 3 cover story depicting the superstar getting his own second dose of the vaccine after consulting with epidemiologists and industry experts.

    “I just want to play shows,” he continued. “Politics’ job is to divide – that’s how you win elections. Those things that unite us are music and sports. The times when, whether you’re a Democrat or Republican or whatever, you throw your arm around the person next to you. We need that. I need that.”

    Additionally, Church will appear in an upcoming PSA promoting vaccine education, produced by ACM Lifting Lives, The Ad Council and COVID Collaborative and set to premiere during the ACM Awards broadcast on Sunday, April 18, where Church will also perform a song off his forthcoming Heart & Soul triple album project.

    The trio is set for release in the coming weeks, with Heart available everywhere Friday, April 16, Soul available everywhere Friday, April 23, and the middle album, &, available exclusively to the Church Choir on Tuesday, April 20.
