ADAM HAMBRICK RELEASES NEW TRACK AND MUSIC VIDEO “FOREVER AIN’T LONG ENOUGH.”

Adam Hambrick released his new track “Forever Ain’t Long Enough” today, listen HERE. Written by Adam, Joe Ginsberg, and Kelly Archer, the song couples Adam’s soaring vocals with a catchy melody that seemingly begs to get stuck in your head. “What’s really great about “Forever Ain’t Long Enough” is that, at its core, it’s just a feel good, fun, love song,” explains Adam. “When Kelly, Joe and I got in the room to write we came up with something to make people dance and smile- and it has a little attitude which I love. This song is the kind of thing you want to put in your earbuds and bounce down the street.”

Additionally, Adam debuted his first official music video for the brand-new song today. The treatment views like a scene from a classic 1980’s film, complete with leather jackets, slicked back hairstyles, and paper diner hats.

Earlier this year Adam opened for Brett Young on a string of west coast tour dates and made his debut performance at Stagecoach, C2C Fest, and the Grand Ole Opry. Adam previously released his songs “Rockin’ All Night Long” and “All You, All Night, All Summer” which have accumulated over 43 million streams to date. Adam is currently in the studio working on his debut album with producers Andrew DeRoberts (James Blunt, Miley Cyrus) and Paul DiGiovanni (Blake Shelton, Jordan Davis).

TRAVIS DENNING RELEASES THE ACOUSTIC VERSION OF HIS SONG, “AFTER A FEW.”

As Mercury Nashville’s Travis Denning’s new single “After A Few” continues to climb the country radio charts, Denning is sharing a stripped-back acoustic version of the track today, available to watch as a special in-studio version here and to listen to here. Currently ascending through the Top 40, the “memorable” song showcases Denning’s “future star power” (Billboard.) Co-written by Denning with Kelly Archer and Justin Weaver, the track follows his Top 40 debut single “David Ashley Parker From Powder Springs.”

A native of Warner Robins, Georgia, singer/songwriter Travis Denning has been spotlighted by Rolling Stone for his “everyman worldview that evokes his small-town, big-hearted upbringing and a sound that is a wide tent – fun, modern country with rock-guitar licks” and was recently selected as an Opry NextStage recipient and CMA KixStart Artist, as he makes his mark within the industry. Inspired at a young age, Denning developed a love for country, pop, rock and heavy metal and started playing local bars from the age of 16, as he built a strong following from his distinctive songs and raucous guitar solos. Denning moved to Nashville and secured outside cuts by Jason Aldean, Justin Moore, Michael Ray and Chase Rice. A prolific writer with an unquestionable stage presence, Denning caught the attention of Universal Music Group and signed a record deal in 2017. Denning has previously opened shows for Cole Swindell, Alan Jackson, LANCO and is set to hit the road this fall with Riley Green beginning September 5 in Statesboro, Georgia and will run through the end of the year. When Denning is not touring, he is in the studio working on his debut album.

VINCE GILL TITLED HIS NEW ALBUM OKIE BASED ON WHERE HE’S FROM, THE RICH HISTORY OF THE STATE AND KEN BURNS.

Vince Gill releases his new album, OKIE, on Friday (August 23rd). The album’s title is taken from the once-derogatory term used to disparage migrants from Oklahoma to the nation’s west coast during the Dust Bowl and Great Depression eras. A proud Oklahoman, Gill has appropriated this term on an album that embraces his roots and explores some of the most important issues of our time.

“I wrestled hard for what to call this record, just because of the songs, you know what they represented – a lifetime of experience,” says Vince. “I had the good fortune of getting to sit down and watch the Ken Burns documentary about the history of country music and that was so powerful. It was so emotional to watch, to really watch this history get told properly with respect, with dignity, with all these things. Because we, as a musical world, there were a lot of times in our history where we were looked down upon, whether they called us hillbillies or whether we were poor people or whether we were this or that. But, in the way that they told that story and they told it with such grace about how the races got along, and so you go back to our very incarnation of what we were and it’s beautiful because we weren’t segregated. We weren’t hateful. We weren’t any of those things. But we were kind of treated that way off and on for a pretty good stretch. And I don’t think a lot of people understand that the word Okie was – I always knew it — but when we migrated during the Dust Bowl and went out west to try to find work and feed families and dig a living out of the dirt, they used that word disparagingly. You called an Okie and Okie it was meant with distain. And I thought after watching that documentary I said I kind of like that. It’s where I’m from, I said, and I’ve got a lot of pride about being where I’m from and what our history is and how hard working those people are and kind and fair-minded and common sense and a lot of things that I’ve taken with me on this journey. I thought this might be a good name for this record. And it just hit me like a ton of bricks, and everybody liked it. So, as it could be construed as ‘well he’s from Oklahoma. He’s calling it OKIE,’ it has a much deeper kind of connotation and inspired by what Ken and those guys did to paint our history with some dignity and respect.”

Okie marks Gill’s most recent solo album since 2016’s Down To My Last Bad Habit and 2011’s Guitar Slinger.  In 2013, Gill partnered with famed steel guitarist Paul Franklin on Bakersfield as a tribute to the “Bakersfield sound” of Buck Owens and Merle Haggard. With 21 GRAMMY Awards to his credit.  Gill has solidified his place as country music’s most eloquent and impassioned champion. He is both a world-class musician and a wide-ranging songwriter whose compositions earned him entry into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2005 and the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2007. Gill has also made appearances on over 1000 artists’ records.

Audio / Vince Gill talks about how the new Ken Burns Country Music documentary influenced the title of the album, OKIE.

CARRIE UNDERWOOD STARS IN ALL-NEW NBC SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL SHOW OPEN & WELCOMES ICON JOAN JETT FOR NEW RENDITION OF “WAITING ALL DAY FOR SUNDAY NIGHT.”

NBC’s Sunday Night Football, primetime television’s No. 1 program for an unprecedented eight consecutive years, will unveil an all-new show open with Carrie Underwood this season, with a nod to the first-ever NBC SNF open in 2006 featuring a new rendition of the original “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” music.

Underwood, the seven-time Grammy Award-winner and multi-platinum recording artist, stars in the NBC SNF show open for the seventh consecutive year and welcomes Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Joan Jett, who makes an appearance during Underwood’s performance.

 

At the invitation of Underwood, Jett – whose 1988 Top 10 hit “I Hate Myself for Loving You” was adapted for the original “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” SNF show open music in 2006 – appears for the first time in the NBC Sunday Night Football show open. Carrie will also be joined by NFL stars (to be announced on Monday) in the new show open.

“I have always been a huge fan of Joan’s, and I’m thrilled that she’s joining us for the Sunday Night Football open,” said Carrie. “What better way to pay homage to the original SNF opening song than by getting to play with her on primetime’s biggest stage?”

 

“When Carrie brought us this idea, we immediately embraced it as a terrific way to evolve the performance, while also celebrating the song we used in our first 10 seasons of SNF,” said Fred Gaudelli, Executive Producer of NBC’s Sunday Night Football. “We were excited when Joan agreed to join us, and we can’t wait to debut the finished product.”

*At halftime of this Sunday night’s preseason game (August 25th) on NBC (Pittsburgh Steelers at Tennessee Titans, 8pm ET), a sneak preview of the SNF show open will air. The full 2019 NBC Sunday Night Football show open will debut on Sunday, September 8th, as the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots host the Pittsburgh Steelers.

For the first time in the series’ 14 seasons, the SNF show open was filmed inside an NFL Stadium with Mercedes-Benz Stadium, home of the Atlanta Falcons, serving as the “stage.”

Carrie Underwood (loves being a part of SNF) OC: …my whole life. :54
“I love being the voice of Sunday Night Football because I grew up watching football…from birth. I’m from Oklahoma – we’re a football state. It’s just a part of the country that everybody has their teams and there’s such an energy about it. We would drive down to Dallas and watch the Cowboys play whenever we could. There’s just something about being at a live sporting event or watching it on TV. You have your favorites. They have their rivals. There’s an excitement to it that really, it’s unlike anything else, so being a small part of that is absolutely amazing. It’s been so wonderful working with everybody at SNF, and I count myself very lucky and very blessed that I get to be a small part of something that I’ve loved my whole life.”

I mean, I’m trying to prove myself day in and day out from doing live shows to recording the best music that I can, and this album really speaks volumes of where I was at this time in my career. There are album cuts on this album that fans still request and want me to play in my live shows. I think ‘Drinkin’ Beer and Wastin’ Bullets’ was such a big song for me to go do live.

KIP MOORE GETS UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL ON HIS DIVE BAR TOUR.

Kip Moore just launched his BUD LIGHT DIVE BAR TOUR in Detroit, Michigan. He said fans will get a never-before-seen show, as they “dictate” what songs he and his band will play.

“We go completely off-the-cuff. We end up improvising all night long. We might end up playing for three hours plus. We’ll go deep in the catalog, and it’ll be unlike any show they’ve seen in a while,” says Kip. “As far as set lists go, we’ll have somewhat of a set list put together, but every night in the Bar Dive Tour will be a night the fans get to dictate what they want to hear. If we feel like they know the Wild Ones record the best, then that’s what we’ll go into. We’ll also play a lot more covers than we’ve ever played. We normally don’t play but one cover a show, and we might dig in deep to our original roots playing in these bar dives.”

Kip has another handful of dates left, including Tuesday night (August 20th) in Cincinnati, Thursday (August 22nd) in Chicago and on Friday (August 23rd) in Madison, Wisconsin.

Kip, who just released his new single, “She’s Mine,”  will also continue his “wildly successful” (Chicago Tribune)ROOM TO SPARE: ACOUSTIC TOUR for a third leg, following two previously sold-out runs meeting capacity crowds at every stop in the U.S., Canada and The U.K. Moore has invited special guests Tucker Beathard, Devin Dawson and Kylie Morgan along for select dates, with the run set to begin in Grand Rapids, MI on 10/10. Moore will also return to Europe this fall, bringing his full-band electric show for special headlining performances in London, UK, Glasgow, UK, Belfast, NI and a headlining performance at The Long Road Festival.
