BROTHERS OSBORNE KEEPING BUSY DURING THIS TIME OFF FROM THE ROAD.

As most country artists, Brothers Osborne’s TJ and John Osborne had to “learn” to slow down during the global pandemic that canceled tours, concerts and much more than we all realize. The two have never been people to take time off; they’ve pretty much worked their whole lives. In addition to working on music and writing songs, the time off the road has allowed them to discover other creative interests they truly enjoy.

“We have to keep ourselves busy. TJ and I grew up just working really hard, and we’re busy bodies. We’ve never been mandated to take some time off, so we just work all the time,” says John. “So, the very first thing we had to learn how to do was just slow it down a little bit, and then simply working around the house or yardwork, those cathartic experiences that we don’t get a lot of because we’re always out on the road. The cool thing about it all is we’re only doing it when we want to do it. There’s no rush to do anything. There’s no time frame, there’s no deadline. It’s just waking up every day and going, ‘I feel like doing this today. This is what I want to do,’ and there’s something really nice about that.”

The brothers from Deale, Maryland are making their way up the country charts with “All Night,” which is from their most recent Skeletons album.

LUKE BRYAN’S SIX NEW SONGS ON THE DELUXE VERSION OF BORN HERE LIVE HERE DIE HERE COMPLIMENT THE ORIGINAL TRACKS.

Four-time Entertainer of the Year and American Idol judge Luke Bryan will release a deluxe version of his No. 1, RIAA gold certified album BORN HERE LIVE HERE DIE HERE (Deluxe Edition) on April 9th adding six NEW songs to the collection. He says the reason he added six new tracks is because of COVID and the songs worked seamlessly side-by-side with the original 10 tracks.

“When I think about when we went to release Born Here Live Here Die Here, we kind of got delayed because of everything associated and involved with COVID. So, we released Born Here Live Here Die Here in August, and through that process even through quarantine, I had written a couple of songs. We knew that we still wanted Born Here Live Here Die Here to be out there living, and so I had these six songs that I found and some of ‘em I had already recorded,” says Luke. “I love these songs. I love what they say. They have a lot of ruralness to ‘em. They have a lot of downhome country feels to ‘em, and I felt like (they) complimented the album very well. I was excited for my fans to hear ‘em as quick as I could get it out to them.”

Luke is poised to hit the top of the country charts with his latest single, “Down to One.”

Catch Luke and his fellow American Idol judges, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie, this Sunday as the auditions for the show’s contestants continue, beginning at 8pm ET/7pm CT on ABC.

TAYLOR SWIFT’S RE-RECORDED VERSION OF FEARLESS INCLUDES SONGS “FROM THE VAULT.”

When Taylor Swift recently dropped “Love Story (Taylor’s Version),” she also revealed she has already re-recorded all of the songs from her album, Fearless, plus six additional new songs that have never been released.

“I’m really excited for people to hear these six additional never-before-heard tracks from my version of Fearless. These are songs that I’m calling ‘From the Vault,’ and I call them that because there are songs that I wrote over the course of my career that were meant for certain albums, but did not end up making the track list for reasons that, to me, don’t really matter now,” says Taylor. “Like, I would make decisions based on like, ‘Oh, there are too many break-up songs on this album. I can’t put this one on too. There are too many slow songs on this album, I can’t put this one on too. And I think curating an album is really important, but at the same time, it’s really fun to now go back and show the fans the full picture of what I had created at that time in my life.”

The new version of her Fearless album will be available beginning April 9th.

Her re-recording of “Love Story” topped Billboard’s airplay, sales and streaming-based Hot Country Songs chart (her first to debut at No. 1). Her original version topped the charts November 22nd and 29th, 2008. She joins Dolly Parton as the only other artist whose originals and re-recordings topped the charts. Dolly’s “I Will Always Love You,” first topped the chart in 1974, followed by a new version in 1982.

“This is my first time having a No. 1 debut on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and I’m so grateful to the fans for making this a possibility,” she tells Billboard. “They’re the ones who emboldened me to reclaim my music and they really showed up this week to see it through. It blows me away that they’ve sent a song to No. 1 that had its first life over a decade ago. I couldn’t be happier that it happened now, and in this way.”

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

DARIUS RUCKER HITS THE TOP OF THE COUNTRY CHARTS WITH HIS 10TH NO. 1 HIT, “BEERS AND SUNSHINE.”

Darius Rucker hit No. 1 country single this week with “Beers and Sunshine.” The tune, which he co-wrote with producer Ross Copperman, J.T. Harding and Josh Osborne, tops both the Country Aircheck/Mediabase and Billboard country charts.

With his first solo single at Country radio since packing arenas during 2019’s Hootie & the Blowfish blockbuster world tour, the South Carolina nativehas earned his 10th career No. 1 with “Beers And Sunshine.”

Written via a Zoom session with producer Ross Copperman and fellow songwriters Josh Osborne and TJ Harding at the onset of the global pandemic that changed the way music is made, the anthem celebrated by ABC News Radio as “a ray of sunshine for fans during what’s been a tumultuous year” calls for slowing down to recognize the important things in life when the world feels out of control.

With the lighthearted melody recorded virtually from his home, Rucker sings not of divisive headlines or topics meant to pull us apart, instead offering a reprieve for 2:58 via his preferred forms of “B.S.” – “beers and sunshine / bonfires and summertime / back porch nights in South Carolina.” 

“It’s certainly been a challenging year. Like a lot of people, when I got home from being on the road last March and we parked the tour bus for the foreseeable future, we had no idea what our future would actually look like,” Rucker reflects. “I don’t have the answers for how we fix the complex issues that we’re facing in our country or in Country music, however while we work through this time I think it’s important that we balance the heaviness by finding the silver lining, where we can really enjoy the simple joys this song talks about like time spent together with friends and family.”

Rucker, who is currently at work on a forthcoming studio album, performed the song live on the CMA Awards which he co-hosted with Reba McEntire in November. Fans can once again catch a glimpse of what Billboard praises as a “smile-inducing performance” when Rucker appears live on NBC News’ “TODAY” this Friday, February 26th.

Darius Rucker (Beers and Sunshine No. 1) OC: …love that song. :33
“You know, I really thought the song, especially right now in the winter and with everything that’s going on, it was just such an upbeat song, a happy song, and I thought people would resonate with it and eventually they did. And that was really cool. That one was also the first song that I had ever done that was all recorded over the internet too, so that was pretty cool. It was just one of those things, it was early in the pandemic and we were already like, ‘Is it really going to be like this? Is this what it’s gonna be like?’ (laughs) And that’s what it was like though, but I love that song.”

LUKE BRYAN NAMED CRB 2021 ARTIST HUMANITARIAN OF THE YEAR.

Luke Bryan has been named Country Radio Broadcasters (CRB) 2021 Artist Humanitarian Award recipient. Luke was recognized with the honor during his appearance on the annual “CRS Artist Interview,” sponsored by BMI, during CRS 2021: The Virtual Experience.

CRS/CRB Board President Kurt Johnson commented, “Luke is a big star with a bigger heart. From his earliest days to as recently as Super Bowl LV, he’s leveraged his influence for good and helped songwriters, farmers, children, small businesses—people in so many different walks of life that Luke Bryan’s philanthropic work has touched. We’re so proud to honor him with this much-deserved award.”

Luke is recognized for his charitable work with numerous organizations over the years, including ACM Lifting Lives, CMA Foundation, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, Shriners Hospital, St. Jude, TJ Martell, and more. As well as his ongoing efforts with the Brett Boyer Foundation and Bayer’s #HeresToTheFarmer campaign through his annual Farm Tour.

The Brett Boyer Foundation is an organization that is very dear to Luke’s family, formed in honor of his late niece, Sadie Brett Boyer. Their mission is to raise awareness for Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) and fund research for advance treatment options. Luke and his wife Caroline established Brett’s Barn at their farm outside of Nashville as part of Caroline’s promise to buy Brett a pony someday. The barn is now the home of a growing species of animals.

Luke’s annual Farm Tours, launched in 2009, highlight and celebrate the contributions of America’s farmers. Every year a portion of the concert proceeds are donated as college scholarships for students of farming families where the tour is played. In 2015, Luke partnered with Farm Tour sponsor Bayer who launched the #HeresToTheFarmer campaign to support their hard work and help fight hunger throughout the country. Since its inception, the campaign has donated four million meals across the U.S. in addition to thousands of dollars to area food banks and local farmers in each of the Farm Tour cities.

When the pandemic hit in 2020, Luke’s philanthropic support continued. Last April, Luke performed as part of Verizon’s weekly streaming entertainment series in support of small businesses affected by COVID-19, Pay It Forward Live. The performances were streamed on Twitter @Verizon, Yahoo, Verizon’s Facebook page, Fios Channel 501, FOX NOW and iHeart. Viewers were encouraged to do what they could to support local businesses in their own communities by shopping online, buying gift cards to be used when businesses reopened or ordering a meal. Verizon also donated $10, up to $2.5 million, to support small businesses when the hashtag #PayitForwardLIVE was used.

In May 2020, Luke teamed up with BMI and radio broadcasting groups to help raise money for songwriters who have been affected by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. A Salute to the Songwriters aired on more than 100 radio stations nationwide. Proceeds went directly to the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief fund, created by BMI, ASCAP and SESAC.

Luke’s engagement with Verizon continued during Super Bowl LV as part of The Big Concert for Small Business. The concert was livestreamed on Yahoo, Fios, @Verizon on Twitter, Twitch, YouTube and TikTok and broadcast on BET, CBS Sports Network, CMT, MTV2 and MTV Live, as well as airing on iHeart and Sirius. Verizon made a multi-year commitment to bring one million small businesses forward by 2030 with resources to help them succeed in the digital economy and committing $10 million to small business support through the nonprofit Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), focusing on business owners in historically underserved communities.

Luke’s additional charitable endeavors, fundraisers, and concerts have included the City of Hope, Grammy MusiCares, Heart of South Georgia Fund, Ryan Seacrest Studio, Second Harvest Fund Bank, Wounded Warrior Project, and MORE.

The CRB Artist Humanitarian Award was created in 1990 by the organization’s board to honor those Country music artists who have exhibited exceptional humanitarian efforts during their career. Past recipients include Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Lady A, Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, Trace Adkins, Randy Owen, Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Brooks & Dunn, Reba, Vince Gill, Garth Brooks, and Charlie Daniels, among others.

JORDAN DAVIS RELEASES NEW MUSIC VIDEO “ALMOST MAYBES” FEATURING HANNAH BROWN.

MCA Nashville’s Jordan Davis released his new music video, “Almost Maybes,” today, starring Hannah Brown. Directed by Patrick Tracy, “Almost Maybes” illustrates the stories of those relationships that seemed like they were meant to be forever but just did not quite work out. The video was shot in a film studio where they recreated scenes from Jordan’s past including his old college dorm room and one of his favorite bars from Baton Rouge called Bogie’s. Each set is a snapshot of a previous ex relationship, each with their own distinct look to them. Fans can watch the “Almost Maybes” music video HERE.

 

Hannah tells the story how she and Jordan first sparked the idea to do a music video together. “I had done a Q&A on my social media saying how I’d love to be in a music video one day,” says Hannah. “So some of my fans started tagging Jordan, and then Jordan sent me a direct message on Instagram and that’s how it all started.”

“Within hours I was getting messages saying I should have Hannah in the video,” recalls Jordan. “Hannah was very involved in the plot line of the video, which was really fun hearing about her past relationships and marrying those stories with mine. I’m really happy with how the video turned out.”

“Almost Maybes” is the lead single from Jordan’s self-titled EP and is currently Top 20 and climbing on the country charts.

The multi-Platinum-selling, singer/songwriter previously released his self-titled EP in May, which delivered the catchy hooks that have become his signature like “Almost Maybes,” but he also went deeper with personal tracks such as the critically acclaimed “Detours” and spiritual “Church In A Chevy.” For the man who American Songwriter says “rips pages from the book of John Prine,” it was his passion for songwriting that drove the project. Drawing inspiration in the writer’s room from his own life, the six-song EP offered his most personal work to-date.

About Jordan Davis
MCA Nashville’s Jordan Davis has been named an “Artist to Watch” by Billboard, Rolling Stone, CMT, Pandora, Shazam, Amazon Music, Sounds Like Nashville, The Tennessean, SiriusXM, Whiskey Riff and more. A Native of Shreveport, Louisiana, Davis graduated from LSU and briefly pursued the path of his degree working as an environmental consultant; however, his passion for music and songwriting eventually compelled him to move to Nashville in the summer of 2012. The 2020 ACM New Male Artist of the Year nominee’s debut album Home State has accumulated over 1 billion streams worldwide and features his three consecutive No. 1 hits “Slow Dance In A Parking Lot,” the Double Platinum-Certified “Singles You Up” and Platinum-Certified “Take It From Me.” In 2019 Davis won Best New Country Artist at the iHeart Radio Music Awards and was a nominee for ACM New Male Artist of the Year. He was also named Billboard’s Top New Country Artist of 2018 as well as Country Aircheck/Mediabase’s Most Heard New Artist of 2018. In May the hitmaker released a six-song, self-titled EP featuring current single “Almost Maybes” as well as the critically acclaimed “Detours” and a recent collaboration with pop superstar Julia Michaels, “Cool Anymore.” The singer/songwriter has previously toured with the likes of Rascal Flatts, Jake Owen, Kip Moore, Brett Young and Old Dominion and earlier this year headlined his sold-out Trouble Town Tour hitting over 20 cities.

Jordan Davis (going back in time in Almost Maybes video) OC: …we’re at now, you know? :59
“This song being so kind of true to me is I’ve been able to kind of recreate those scenarios through a music video and do it in a tasteful way, not really bashing anybody, but able to recreate those relationships and the settings. So, I didn’t have the big beard (at) the time I got dumped at a Baton Rouge college bar called Bogie’s (laughs). I thought it’d be cool to just kind of go back and recreate that as real as we could, to even going back and we reached out to Bogie’s. They let us use the logo. They let us use everything, so it’s really wild to walk on set and see like, ‘Omigosh! That’s the bar in college that I spend the majority of my time at,’ and the same for Hannah (Brown). I think it’s really cool for her. It was the same thing for her. Jackie’s was her bar in college, so we were able to go and recreate that setting for her. It was a lot of fun for both of us to re-walk through those past relationships that led us to the relationships that we’re at now, you know?”

ADAM HAMBRICK RELEASES DEBUT EP THE FLIPSIDES.

Capitol Records Nashville/Buena Vista Records’ Adam Hambrick released his major label debut EP titled, The Flipsides, today. The EP is comprised of six “soulful, pop-country tracks” (The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette) in which Hambrick masterfully shares his life’s stories through his songs. Hambrick effortlessly blends an array of musical styles in his new EP, combining his distinct vocals with his talent for songwriting, stamping his fingerprint on the music from start to finish.

The Flipsides EP is the blueprint of how I approach country music,” says Hambrick of his new project. “It’s real instruments and colorful songwriting put together in a modern way. After 2020 sidelined most of our plans, it now feels really good to get this project out to my fans, who have been so patient. Now we have something to build on for the future.”

The EP includes the “minor, almost angst-filled feel” (American Songwriter) of “Sunshine State Of Mind” to the sly and sexy “The Longer I Lay Here” which rising country artist Jillian Jacqueline lends her vocals. The reflective “Kill A Man” and the ethereal “When It All Sinks In” are immediately gratifying, but in keeping with his musical mission, their biggest reward is their long-term value, the payoff from exploring the layers of sound and pockets of meaning that are key to understanding Hambrick. The multiple styles that feed his brand of country are authentic, but so is his commitment to songs that stand the test of time. Listen to The Flipsides HERE.

The Flipsides EP Track List:

  1. “Broken Ladder” (Written by Adam Hambrick, Ben Stennis)
  2. “The Longer I Lay Here (Featuring Jillian Jacqueline)” (Written by Adam Hambrick, Gavin Slate, Blake Chaffin, Chandler Baldwin, Tripp Howell)
  3. “Kill A Man” (Written by Adam Hambrick, Andy Albert, Andrew DeRoberts)
  4. “Sunshine State Of Mind” (Written by Adam Hambrick, Kelly Archer, Gordie Sampson)
  5. “Do The Math” (Written by Adam Hambrick, David Fanning, Nick Donley)
  6. “When It All Sinks In” (Written by Adam Hambrick, Kelly Archer, Gordie Sampson)

ABOUT ADAM HAMBRICK
Capitol Records Nashville / Buena Vista Records’ Adam grew up in both Mississippi and Arkansas, being influenced by artists such as Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, John Mayer and The Foo Fighters. From an early age, Adam’s musical roots were grounded in the church singing hymns with his family, where his dad was a Baptist pastor and his mom played piano. After graduating from the University of Central Arkansas, the singer-songwriter made an appearance on KATV’s Good Morning Arkansas, a local Little Rock, Arkansas ABC affiliate, where fellow Arkansas-native and country star Justin Moore happened to be watching and was impressed by Adam’s unique voice and distinctive songs. Soon after, Justin’s producer Jeremy Stover reached out opening the door for Adam to move to Nashville and pursue music full-time. Adam has written a multitude of songs and has received numerous cuts for other artists including Miranda Lambert and Eli Young Band, as well as, No. 1 hits for Dan + Shay (“How Not To”) and Justin Moore (“Somebody Else Will”). Adam has continued to hone his songwriting and vocal skills, while performing live with artists including Brett Young, Jordan Davis, LANCO, and more. Adam released his first two singles “Rockin’ All Night Long” and “Forever Ain’t Long Enough.”

Adam Hambrick (Broken Ladder) OC: …at some point. :25
“’Broken Ladder’ was on the very first recording session that I ever did after I signed my (record) deal, and it was a song I knew the day we wrote it that I was gonna record it, because it is a song that I feel that everybody can relate to. We’ve all dealt with some sort of heartache or some sort of issue or tried to deal with it only to come with the terms of the fact that we weren’t dealing with it very well. And I think everybody comes to that point at some point.”
