DARIUS RUCKER TO RELEASE “OL’ CHURCH HYMN” FEATURING CHAPEL HART ON SEPTEMBER 30th.

Darius Rucker continues to unveil new music as he puts the finishing touches on a forthcoming album, with “Ol’ Church Hymn” featuring rising trio Chapel Hart set for release Friday, Sept. 30. The song comes on the heels of another collaboration from Rucker and the trio, who joined forces for a performance of Bonnie Raitt’s “Something to Talk About” during last week’s “America’s Got Talent” season finale on NBC. Watch the electrifying performance HERE and pre-order / pre-save “Ol’ Church Hymn” HERE.

Written by Rucker together with Ben Hayslip, Josh Miller and Greylan James, the gospel-inspired love song features Rucker’s rich baritone vocals, praised by Billboard as “one of the most distinctive voices of country’s modern era,” joined by the three-part harmony of Chapel Hart to profess a born-again love in the joyful chorus:

        You soothe my soul like an ol’ church hymn
        Found in a book in the back of a pew
        Born again love I’m a new person
        Hand in the air hallelujah
        Amen, Amen, Amen
        Amen, Amen, Amen
        You soothe my soul like an ol’ church hymn

“Like so many people, I was blown away when I saw Chapel Hart’s original response to ‘Jolene,’” notes Rucker. “I was recording ‘Ol’ Church Hymn’ at the time and instantly had this vision of it becoming a duet once I heard their voices. I’m so thankful they said yes to singing on it with me, and I can’t wait to see the huge career they’re going to have.”

“He really took a chance on us… He saw some of our stuff online and he was like ‘I love what you ladies are doing. I have an idea and I want to hear you guys on this song,’” Chapel Hart’s Devynn Hart shared recently.

The new duet will be featured on Rucker’s forthcoming album – his first solo project since 2017’s critically acclaimed When Was the Last Time. Fans can also see Rucker perform live as he brings the inaugural Riverfront Revival festival to his hometown of Charleston, S.C. on October 8th and 9th, with Brothers Osborne, SUSTO, Jimmie Allen, Charley Crockett and more joining him on the lineup. Limited tickets remain available for purchase at RiverfrontRevival.com.

PARKER MCCOLLUM COMES BACK TO THE ASCEND AMPHITHEATER TO GIVE FANS A HIGH CALIBUR SHOW FOLLOWING STORMED OUT PERFORMANCE.

Parker McCollum is a road-warrior artist that leaves it all on the stage each night for the fans who have supported him and his career from the start. It is McCollum’s sole mission when up on that stage – show up and give everyone all he’s got. So when his first show at the Ascend Amphitheater in Nashville back in May hit a string of unforeseen hurtles – unfriendly weather, delays for fans and tough decisions – McCollum knew he had to come back to the open-air venue for a performance he could be proud of and one that his fans deserve. This weekend, in an effort to make-up for that evening, McCollum provided free tickets for those fans who attended his May performance and put on a night he can be proud of and certainly won’t forget.

 

“I wanted to redo this show for the fans. Our first time headlining at Ascend – it stormed until 11:00 PM that night, we go on late, there’s miscommunication between the venue and the fans, and between us and the fans. I just wanted to take responsibility for not delivering on such a big night here in Nashville and wanted to come and make it right and give everybody the opportunity to see the show for everything that it is. I’m just glad to be back and glad it worked out to give Nashville and the fans our best and that’s what it’s all about.” – Parker McCollum

Recently, Parker snagged his first CMA Awards nomination for “Best New Artist” for this year’s upcoming awards show. The nomination follows a string of honors for the breakout artist including – 2022 ACM Award for “New Male Artist of the Year,” and 2022 CMT Award for “Breakthrough Video of the Year.”

Parker, who is making his way up the country charts with “Handle On You,” is out on the road throughout the Fall. For a list of McCollum’s upcoming tour dates, visit HERE.

REBA McENTIRE LOVED THE IDEA OF PLAYING “SUNNY BARNES” IN THE NEW SEASON OF ABC’S BIG SKY.

The wait is almost over for fans of the ABC drama series, Big Sky. The third season of the show, titled Big Sky: Deadly Trails, premieres this Wednesday (September 21st) at 10pm ET/9pm CT, and features a few new faces this year — Reba McEntire and boyfriend Rex Linn (CSI: MiamiBetter Call Saul, Young Sheldon). Reba plays “Sunny Barnes,” who is described as a “successful backcountry outfitter with a secret history of missing customers.” Rex plays her husband “Buck Barnes.”

The country superstar says she was approached by Executive Producer and Showrunner of Big Sky, Elwood Reid, and said she absolutely would love the chance to play Sunny on the show. “When Elwood Reid first pitched his idea for me becoming a member of the Big Sky family, I fell in love with it. I absolutely loved it,” says Reba. “Yeah, I play a devious, conniving, scheming woman on one side and on the other, I’m a really nice gal. I get to play on the screen with Rex Linn — he plays my husband – and a cast of wonderful characters. I love the crew (and) everything about filming Big Sky. I can’t wait for y’all to watch it.”

 

 

Big Sky also features Jensen Ackles (SupernaturalThe Boys), Katheryn Winnick and Kylie Bunbury.

Reba is set to kick-off her fall arena tour, Reba: Live in Concert, kicks off October 13th in Lafayette, Louisiana.

LITTLE BIG TOWN RELEASES 10TH STUDIO ALBUM, MR. SUN.

Today, ACM, CMA and GRAMMY Award-winning band Little Big Town – consisting of Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet, and Jimi Westbrook – release their new, 10th studio album Mr. Sun – listen here.

The band also unveiled the music video for “Three Whiskeys and the Truth,” which was directed by Running Bear Film’s Stephen & Alexa Kinigopoulos – watch here. Immediately following the video’s premiere today, the band went live exclusively on YouTube Premium for a livestreamed afterparty to answer fan questions about the new album.

“Three Whiskeys and the Truth” was written by Fairchild and Schlapman alongside their beloved Love Junkies (Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna, and Liz Rose), ruminating on the feelings that hide in the dark but that always come to the surface somehow. “Lori had that title, and I just love how it tells the story of what we do to numb the pain we’re going through,” Fairchild says, recalling a long day of writing. “And the melody makes it feel like an old school country song like the ones we grew up with.”

The band kicked off the album’s release on Wednesday, September 14 with a stirring performance of “Rich Man” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon – watch here – in addition to flexing their comedic chops in the show’s Cold Open – watch here.

On the eve of the record’s release last night, the band took to Twitter for an #AskLBT Album Q&A with the fans about the record, including the message they want to give fans from the album: “This record was written during the pandemic, so a spirit of gratefulness ties all these songs together. Even the painful songs lead us to better days ahead.”

Fans can engage in the album launch through multiple social media activations, including using the hashtag #MrSun on Twitter to reveal album’s official Twitter emoji and a custom Mr. Sun Instagram filter that went live with the album’s release, which can be found on the filter tab of LBT’s Instagram profile.

This morning, they took the stage at New York City’s Rockefeller Plaza in front of hundreds of fans for the 2022 Citi Concert Series on TODAY, performing a mix of new songs – “All Summer” and “Rich Man,” both of which New York Magazine has praised as “exuberant” – and classic LBT hits (“Wine, Beer Whiskey” and “Little White Church”). Watch their performance of “All Summer” here and “Rich Man” here, and their interviews about the record here and here.

Additional praise for Mr. Sun includes The New York Times hailing it “a sweeping record” and American Songwriter observes that “inside the record, notes reminiscent of the Bee Gees, Fleetwood Mac, and the Eagles ring out, but they’re all tailored to Little Big Town’s country expertise.” Rolling Stone calls it “smooth and sweet, with just the right undercurrent of sadness,” with production that feels “spacious and golden.”

Billboard singles out the album’s “swelling” closing track “Friends of Mine,” as a “benediction to finding the collective strength to persevere through tough times,” while Rolling Stone further ties it to the full record: “Like much of Mr. Sun, it feels like a warm embrace from a loved one.”

The album’s lead single Hell Yeah has amassed 49.8 million streams since its April release. The song was co-written by Sweet, Westbrook, Corey Crowder and Tyler Hubbard. Of its creation, Westbrook notes: “Corey dropped that hook idea on us, and we all gave a resounding hell yeah! At that point, you just don’t want to mess it up.”

Physical copies of Mr. Sun are available as CDs and a baby blue vinyl; a sky blue vinyl is available exclusively through Barnes & Noble.

The genesis of Mr. Sun was unlike any of their previous albums. Due to the pandemic, the band found themselves off the road and apart for the first time ever throughout their 20-year journey. The resilience and creativity born from those months unearthed a deep appreciation for both one another, and the privilege of making music – ultimately inspiring the self-produced Mr. Sun, which packs both the sparkle of storytelling and the heat of truth-telling in a way only Little Big Town can.

Mr. Sun is intentionally an emotional record that holds hands well with our last album Nightfall,” Fairchild has previously shared. “Mr. Sun is focused on better days ahead, the value of friendships and family; it touches on heartbreak and letting go, but it’s full of sunshine and joy.”

Little Big Town spent all summer bringing their exceptional live shows to fans worldwide – they recently wrapped up The Bandwagon Tour with Miranda Lambert and joined The Eagles on all dates of their European stadium tour this summer. This fall, Little Big Town will join Wynonna Judd on select dates of The Judds: The Final Tour in Duluth, GA (October 14) and Huntsville, AL (October 15).

LBT (pandemic recording) OC: …their worries. 1:54
Karen: “This record was made during the pandemic, and kinda the time where we were coming in and out of the pandemic., so, it was challenging. It was challenging to be away from each other as a band for almost five months. It was challenging to be writing songs by ourselves, writing songs on Zoom, and then finally getting the courage to get back in the studio and, that was a great joy just to be back together with our band guys and our engineers, very emotional that day. I think we started working on All Summer first and was just such a joyful tune., that it really just, I don’t know it lit our souls up just being back together making music again with the hope of getting it out to fans this record is really intended to share that joy that you know we’ve learned a lot of lessons in these last couple years. We learned that we can be very divisive as people, as a country, but we also can focus on the things that are the most important. We can look for better days ahead, we can celebrate the friends and family that we have. We can be grateful for the journey I think Godfearing Gypsies is one that really is like a mantra for this band. So, yeah, I’m really proud of the ways this, the beauty in our own personal lives, the way it weaves through this record. Even for songs like Gold, such a fun crazy little number that you know, it’s just like a ruckus, joyful song and it’s intended to make people dance and kind of forget their worries.”
