• CARRIE UNDERWOOD’S MY SAVIOR DEBUTS #1 ACROSS BILLBOARD’S COUNTRY & CHRISTIAN CHARTS.

    Seven-time GRAMMY® Award winner and three-time ACM Entertainer of the Year Carrie Underwood’s new album, My Savior, debuts #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.

    My Savior is also the #1 Country Album and #1 Christian album in Canada.  The album was #1 on the iTunes Album Sales Chart in the U.S. for all genres throughout the week of release and is currently #1.  It was also the #1 Country Album on iTunes in Canada and Australia.

    Seven songs from My Savior debuted on the Country Songs Track chart:  “How Great Thou Art,” “Amazing Grace,” “Just As I Am,” “Because He Lives,” “Victory In Jesus,” “The Old Rugged Cross” and “Blessed Assurance.”

    The success of My Savior comes on the heels of Underwood’s first-ever Christmas album, My Gift, which debuted #1 across multiple global charts, including Billboard Country, Christian and Holiday charts.  The album remained at #1 on the Christian chart 11 weeks after it was released and debuted #1 on the UK country chart (her fifth #1 on the chart) and #1 on the Canadian country chart.  It went on to reclaim the #1 spot on the Billboard Country chart in the U.S. for a third non-consecutive week, and consistently remained in the Top 5 on the Billboard Holiday Album Chart throughout the holidays, hitting #5 on the all-genre Billboard Top 200.

    Critics have praised Underwood and My Savior:

    Carrie Underwood’s First Gospel Album is Straightforward and Stunning…

    The bulk of My Savior‘s tracks were written in the 1800s…but nothing about Underwood’s

    approach feels boring, stale, or preachy. Though many of these hymns have long since entered the public

    domain, becoming standards and sacred classics for millions of Christians, Underwood

    manages to offer a fresh interpretation – no small feat.  The world may know Underwood as a

    chart-topping force to be reckoned with, but My Savior is stunning and simple – and

    one of her most intimate projects yet.  Rating: A”  ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

     

    “Just as she did on her recent Christmas album My Gift, the country star uses her spectacular voice

    on My Savior to reinvigorate age-old classics and push her aesthetic forward… 

    The songs may be traditional, but Underwood adds country, folk and bluegrass elements,

    such as her bluegrass-tinged ‘Nothing But the Blood of Jesus’ or the acoustic ‘Blessed Assurance.’

    Framing her beautiful voice with simple arrangements and instrumentation serves the song

    and the singer well. A moving testament to her faith.”  BILLBOARD

     

    Yesterday, Carrie was featured on CBS Sunday Morning, watch here,  where she discussed the impact of her faith and the process of making My Savior. Her virtual concert event, “My Savior: Live From The Ryman,” (key art here) streamed live globally on Facebook on Easter Sunday (April 4) from the iconic, Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN, also known around the world as the “Mother Church of Country Music.” Fans can watch the performance, which benefitted Save the Children, here as it will remain exclusively on Facebook for a limited time.

    My Savior consists of covers of some of Underwood’s favorite traditional gospel hymns in a unique pastiche of musical styles from classic country to folk, bluegrass, and gospel.  The album will be available on vinyl April 30.  My Savior is co-produced and arranged by Underwood and GRAMMY® Award winner David Garcia, with whom she co-produced her critically acclaimed 2018 album Cry Pretty, her seventh album to be certified Platinum or Multi-Platinum by the RIAA. Garcia is a multi-platinum selling, four-time GRAMMY® Award-winning record producer and songwriter.

  • ERIC CHURCH, HIS BAND AND HIS CO-WRITERS MADE A COMMITMENT TO THE UNUSUAL RECORDING PROCESS OF HEART & SOUL.

    Eric Church is prepping to release his new three-album project, Heart & Soul, this month. Eric took his band, producer and songwriters out of the normal environments to write and record at a restaurant in the mountains of North Carolina, not knowing what the project would look or sound like, but knowing he wanted to shake things up a bit. What he found was a huge commitment to making it all work.

    “What I found is there’s something about doing something different that there’s a belief there,” he says. “Every night we would eat together. Every morning we would be together. And they respected the players, the songwriters. They all respected what I was trying to do. I was honest with them. I said, ‘Hey, I may bring in a song. This song may suck but I wrote it today so give me – I have not slept. Give me a break.’ So, I think at some point in time they committed themselves to what we were trying to do and they gave 110% of that. They knew this dude has been up all night. This dude is trying and we’re going to try, too. And I think that there’s something to that overall, pulling on the rope the same way that made it – made it what it is. Made the project what it is.”

    The reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year will release the first of his three records, Heart,April16th. 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.”

  • CHRIS STAPLETON’S MAIN GOAL IN MAKING MUSIC IS TO EXPERIENCE IT AND CONNECT WITH THE AUDIENCE THROUGH THE MUSIC.

    Chris Stapleton may have felt a little bit of pressure making his latest album, Starting Over, but the goal for him every time he releases new music is the connection between him and the audience over the music.

    “I had someone ask me about do the expectations by either yourself or what you think the audience (s) expectations are, do those things affect you? And the answer is yes,” he says. “You get to make a first record in relative anonymity and kind of this vacuum you’ve had 15 years to write songs for it and you get to cherry-pick (songs) and do all these things, you now. Now, that being said, I think it’s perfectly human that you become aware of expectations as you go along, but I very much try to ignore them – either my own or someone else’s – of what something should be musically, because I’m not sure that’s a healthy space to be making music in, not in a good way anyway. I want the experience of the music and I want to bring an experience to people listening to music in a way that we can have a connection, and in a way that they can have a connection with other human beings. That’s the ultimate goal for me.”

    The album, Starting Over, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart, as well as the Americana/Folk Albums chart.

    Chris is currently making his way to the top of the country charts with the title track, “Starting Over.”

  • CARRIE UNDERWOOD’S MY SAVIOR DEBUTS AT NO. 1.

    Carrie Underwood’s My Savior debuts at the top of the Billboard Country Album chart, as well as the Billboard Christian Album chart. In addition, My Savior is named No. 1 Billboard Top Album, as well as Billboard Top Country Album and Billboard Top Christian Album (all pure album sales), not to mention No 1 Current Digital Albums. The collection enters the overall Billboard 200 at No. 4.

    Carrie says she grew up singing these hymns in church and says revisiting them for her new album, My Savior, felt like home.

    “These particular songs for My Savior, you know, I grew up singing these in church and my church that we go to right now they play a lot of very contemporary Christian songs, praise and worship songs, and it’s great. But every once in a while, they’ll kind of throw in like a chorus or something of some hymn that I grew up with and there’s an immediate sense of home when I hear that. And that’s kind of where I was at when we were recording this,” says Carrie. “It should be like a warm hug, and I feel like there’s so many people that are like me that kind of long for that. You think back to that sense of home and your church that you grew up in with the pews. I mean it’s just one of those things that it just feels like home. And after a year like last year, I feel like people are definitely searching. A lot of people were thrown out of their daily routines and trying to figure life out and be more introspective or kind of slow down. We were all forced to slow down.”

    Carrie streamed a live Easter performance of My Savior from Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, featuring special guests NEEDTOBREATHE’s Bear Rinehart, CeCe Winans, Mac McAnally and Buddy Greene, on Facebook on Sunday. The show is still available for a limited time, and you’re also able to continue to donate to Save the Children.

  • TAYLOR SWIFT REVEALS TRACK LIST FOR FEARLESS (TAYLOR’S VERSION) OUT THIS FRIDAY.

    Taylor Swift sent fans on a huge Easter Egg/Scavenger hunt before unveiling the track list for Fearless (Taylor’s version), which is set for release this Friday (April 9th). “The vault door is about to be unhinged as you’ll think I am after you watch this video,” she tweeted.

     

    Her fans immediately decoded the clues and revealed Keith Urban would also be included on the album. The only song previously released from the re-recordings is “You All Over Me (From The Vault),” featuring Maren Morris on background vocals.

    The global superstar commended her fans on socials and wrote, “Here’s the full track list, my friends. I’m really honored that @keithurban is a part of this project, duetting on That’s When and singing harmonies on We Were Happy. I was his opening act during the Fearless album era and his music has inspired me endlessly. I’m counting down the minutes til we can all jump into this brave world together, filled with equal parts nostalgia and brand newness.”

     

     

    Fearless (Taylor’s Version) will include Fearless‘ original 20 songs (19 tracks from the Platinum edition and “Today Is a Fairytale”), plus six newly recorded songs that she had written around the time of the Fearless sessions.

    Taylor is also currently making her way up the country charts with her single, “no body, no crime” from her recently released album, evermore.

    Audio / Taylor Swift explains why Fearless was the first album she re-recorded.

    Taylor Swift (explains why Fearless rerecorded first) OC: …time around. :45
    “Deciding on what album to re-record first was pretty easy for me. I always gravitated towards Fearless, because I think that as an album, it was a real coming-of-age and I look back on that album, and it filled me with such pride. It was an album about hope and lessons learned and the effervescence of teenage youth and all that, so what more fun than to go back and explore that? And I think that I tried to keep it as close to the original as possible, and the additional songs that I’ve added are songs that I think add insight into what the album almost was; because every time you make an album, you leave songs off, and I think that it’s really cool that the fans will get to have the full picture this time around.”

  • CHRISSY METZ ROLLS OUT “GIRL GO” TODAY.

    Award-winning actress and EMI Records Nashville recording artist Chrissy Metz releases new song “Girl Go” today. Written by Metz with Dan Fernandez, Faren Rachels and Lainey Wilson, “Girl Go” stems from Metz’s appreciation in her own life’s story of receiving that extra little nudge of encouragement to go out and chase her dreams.

    “‘Girl Go’ was inspired by the beginning of my journey from Gainesville, Fla. to Los Angeles and just needing somebody to believe in me and to say ‘go – go and do it, be bold, be brave, be courageous,’” recalls Metz.  “I remember being that bright-eyed, very eager, excited girl to pursue her dreams and this really encapsulates that moment.”

    Listen to Chrissy Metz’s “Girl Go” HERE

    “Girl Go” is the latest track from Metz who spent much of 2020 writing and recording in Nashville, Tenn. working towards her first full music project. Metz can be found in the current issue of Garden & Gun magazine discussing her childhood in the south and discovering her love of music and singing. While an award-winning actress well-known for her role as “Kate Pearson” on NBC’s This Is Us, Metz has always called music her “first love.” Additional music from the star includes “Talking To God,” “Actress,” “Feel Good,” plus a recent “Feel Good” Dave Audé remix.

    Chrissy Metz (Girl Go) OC: …relate to it. :35
    “So, ‘Girl Go’ was actually inspired by the beginning of my journey from moving from Gainesville, Florida to Los Angeles and really having these big dreams coming from a small town and just needing somebody to say, ‘Go! Go do it. Be brave. Be bold. Be Courageous.’ And who doesn’t need that? Sometimes we need somebody to believe in us before we can believe in ourselves, even when we feel as if we’re never going to get to the place that we are meant to be. I hope you love this song, and I hope you can relate to it.”

  • ALAN JACKSON TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM, WHERE HAVE YOU GONE.

    Country superstar Alan Jackson will release his first album of all new music in six years this spring – Where Have You Gone arrives May 14th. Packed with 21 performances, Where Have You Gone is Jackson’s 16th studio album – his 25th in a storied career that includes two Christmas albums, two gospel albums, three Greatest Hits collections, a bluegrass album, and one boxed set.

    Jackson – a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame – penned 15 of the album’s songs, including the title track. Keith Stegall, his longtime producer, once again plays that role on Where Have You Gone.

    “It’s a little harder country than even I’ve done in the past,” Jackson admits. “And it’s funny, I was driving and listening to the final mixes Keith sent me, and I started to tear up. I was surprised to get so overly emotional, but I just love this kind of music.”

    “This kind of music” on Where Have You Gone runs the gamut of what embodies true country music. “When I write, I visualize back home and growing up,” the Country Music Hall of Fame member says. “Real country songs are life and love and heartache, drinking and Mama and having a good time…but it’s the sounds of the instruments, too. The steel and acoustic guitar, the fiddle – those things have a sound and a tone…and getting that right, the way those things make you feel, that’s country, too.”

    “Alan’s taken his experiences over the last six years and implemented his poet’s perspective to weave together a masterful love letter to country music,” says UMG Nashville President Cindy Mabe. “This is Alan’s story but it’s also the story of country music. This music love letter was written about the most universal experiences in life, almost exclusively with Alan’s own pen, and it’s once again a reminder of what a one-of-a-kind creator he truly is.”

    Led by the self-penned title track, Where Have You Gone is highlighted by such songs as the poignant and thoughtful “Things That Matter” and the heartache-filled “Way Down in My Whiskey.” Never one to shy away from reflecting real life in his music, “You’ll Always Be My Baby” and “I Do” were written for his daughters’ weddings…while “Where Her Heart Has Always Been” was written for his mother’s funeral and includes a recording of her reading from The Bible. There’s also plenty of fun to be had on barnburners like “Livin’ On Empty,” “Back” and “Beer:10.” And, in the spirit of the album’s overall sound, “That’s the Way Loves Goes (A Tribute to Merle Haggard)” is a bonus track. Watch the lyric video for “Where Have You Gone” HERE.

    Pre-orders for Where Have You Gone begin today (April 2) and are available HERE.
