Aubrie Sellers: New Single & Album due January 2016

Aubrie Sellers album NEW CITY BLUES (Carnival Records/Thirty Tigers) is due for release in January 2016.
Kacey Musgraves and Angaleena Presley examine how shifting values affect women wandering away from their families' norms. Now, Aubrie Sellers joins that elite crew with a song that starts out heartwarming but soon turns into the existential testament of a heartbreaker. Sellers comes to this squad of independent ladies with a pedigree – she's the daughter of the tradition-minded country standard-bearer Lee Ann Womack, and the bluegrass-connected singer and songwriter Jason Sellers.

Her stepdad, Frank Liddell, is one of Nashville's hottest producers. On this first single from her upcoming debut album, NEW CITY BLUES, Liddell frames Sellers' tough but vulnerable vocal in an arrangement with a rock base but a high lonesome undertone. The twist? She loves the guy whose sweetness she's celebrating...and leaves him.
"Too bad the keys are swingin' off the steering wheel tonight," she wails, sounding just sorry enough to know what she's willingly rejecting. Written with Brent Cobb, who gave Luke Bryan one of his best ballads ("Tailgate Blues"), "Loveless Rolling Stone" has a rock edge that puts Sellers in the company of other young genre-defiers like Jason Isbell. There's no denying the vocal affinity with Womack – like her mother, Sellers has a gift for yearning, an indelible tinge of sadness in her sass.

On The Debut Album:
I always knew how I wanted my debut album to sound, but I wasn’t sure what was going to happen when I started writing. It all happened very organically. I’m excited to get it out early next year.”
On Famous Parents
“I put a lot of pressure on myself because of it. You don’t really have a chance to go around and be anonymous and work out the kinks. So, there’s the pressure to be perfect coming out of the gate. So, it’s scary. You don’t want to be compared to your parents. My music is not like theirs. At the same time, my parents are great, and I’ve been able to learn a lot about the business that most people don’t know.”

(Oct 1, 2015) The UK's hottest country act The Shires (Crissie Rhodes and Ben Earle) confirmed they will be performing on BBC 1's The Graham Norton Show
Broadcast this Friday night (2 October 2015 on BBC 1 at 10.35pm)

They will appear alongside a start studded guest line of including: 
Academy and Golden Globe Award winning actor Robert DeNiro
Oscar winner Anne Hathaway
Sir Kenneth Branagh (Night of the Theatre)
and English actor Tom Hiddleston.

Combining the classic pop-rock drive of Fleetwood Mac with the uplifting, infectious anthems of The Lumineers, British duo Crissie Rhodes and Ben Earle have become the face of the UK’s rising country scene. 

Their success has continued since as the band started the year as the biggest selling UK-signed debut artist of 2015, a great achievement for the band who have built up a loyal group of supporters throughout the country with their warm personalities and stunning songs. The band can also list a show at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, the home of country Music, amongst their bucket list achievements for the year. With forthcoming performance on BBC1’s Graham Norton show topping off a great year of TV for the band who have already appeared on Sunday Brunch, BBC Breakfast News, Andrew Marr and The One Show.

The Shires celebrate their breakthrough year with the release a brand new single

They announced they are releasing their wonderful new single ‘I Just Wanna Love You’ (Decca Nashville) which drops October 30th.

New single is the band’s most romantic song yet, a pure, heartfelt ballad which is as catchy as it is poignant. 

The sweet harmonies and sincere lyrics carry all the hallmarks of an enduring country classic so it’s no surprise that this song has been hand-picked by many fans as the soundtrack for many newlyweds’ first dances (Something which Ben remarked on opening for Carrie Underwood at the Apple Music Festival).

The video was first published on July 1, 2014 (160K views). 

The single is taken from their debut album BRAVE which released on March 2nd 2015 and entered at No.10 (9,516 sales; chart week March 14, 2015) and has spent 28 weeks on Top 100 Official UK Album Chart selling over 69,000 copies in 30 weeks.

Available for purchase

14 Tracks Time: 47:30 CD (Standard Ver) MP3 - UK iTunes

The band have also created a fan/lyric video put to the music of "All Over Again" which was "A" play-listed by BBC Radio 2. Up till 22nd August 2015. They shared “We have had the most amazing few months playing at festivals all over the UK. You can see a little of what we got up

October Headline Tour
They wrapped up a summer of festival appearances, including a sensational set at Glastonbury and appeared as part of this year’s Apple Music Festival at London’s Roundhouse, where they supported country queen Carrie Underwood.

The Shires have headed out on their UK Tour (playing venues including London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on 24 Oct 2015).

They hit the road, embarking on a 3 week tour of the UK, opening in Bedford and culminating in a much anticipated and triumphant return to London's Shepherd's Bush Empire on 24 October 2015. This is less than a year after they were a support act at the same venue for CMA Group of the Year and fellow country act Little Big Town - yet another example of The Shires remarkable success and rapid rise to become out of the biggest break through acts of 2015! The Shires are also set to perform at One Big Night for BBC Children in Need on 8 October 2015, which will be staged at the SSE Arena, Wembley, with The Shires performing alongside: 5 Seconds of Summer, James Morrison, Laura Mvula and Dame Evelyn Glennie.

Dianna Corcoran Releases Official Music Video for Single, “God Did Good”

(Nashville, Tenn. – Sept. 28, 2015) – Singer, songwriter and guitarist Dianna  Corcoran has released a music video for her latest single, “God Did Good.” Produced by Gear Seven Productions Nashville and directed by Connor Carroll, the video is now available for viewing on Corcoran's YouTube channel, here, and the song is available for download on, UK iTunes , Amazon and other major digital retailers.

The self-produced track was written by Corcoran, Jeff Cohen and Kristian Bush, and is a country-rock love song about how ‘God did good’ creating the protagonist’s love interest.
Of the music video, Corcoran commented, “I love the story of ‘God Did Good.’ I had fun shooting the video and wanted something simple that would translate the story to the audience, along with genuine happiness.”
As a young adult, Dianna’s first interest in Country music came through yodelling. She is now a multi-format recording artist with over 400 music awards, including two multi-award winning albums and two Australian Country Music Golden Guitar Awards. Corcoran also has a passion for philanthropy and has worked with The Australian Defence Force, deploying three times to perform for troops serving in Afghanistan and Egypt. 
No stranger to hard work both in and out of the studio, Corcoran is noted for working three jobs in order to fund her first record. One of which was a gig in a car parts plant that trained the blonde-haired, blue-eyed Country cutie to become a vehicle mechanic who can not only change the oil, tires and batteries in a motor vehicle, but also fully rebuild car engines.

About Dianna Corcoran: Already a two-time Golden Guitar winner, (Australian Country Music Awards) including Female Artist of The Year, Dianna Corcoran is one of Australia’s finest country vocalists. Relocating to Nashville, Tenn. in 2011 after signing a publishing and recording deal in the U.S. with Krian Music Group / Universal Music Group, Dianna has worked extensively in the song writing community throughout Stockholm, London, Germany, Australia and the U.S.
With her “down to earth, country girl” approach to performance, two multi-award winning albums under her belt and over 400 awards throughout her career, Dianna released her fresh, upbeat, third album KEEP BREATHING to rave reviews . “Keep Breathing” was produced by two time Grammy Award winner Rebecca Lynn Howard & Elisha Hoffman.
Dianna returned in 2013 with LOVE & THERAPY, an album displaying the diverse talents of this unique artist.

With numerous No.1 hits and cuts to her name, including an upcoming Hollywood movie opening theme, this sublime singer, songwriter, producer and young musical entrepreneur took her career to a whole new level by self-producing her first ever American release, aptly titled IN AMERICA, which is set to release January 29, 2016. Most recently, Dianna released the first single off her new album titled “God Did Good” with songwriting credits including herself, Kristian Bush and Jeff Cohen.

Kenny Rogers Drops Christmas Album & announces retirement from Touring

His Upcoming World Tour Will Be His Last
He's released his 9th holiday album Once Again It's Christmas.

NEW YORK, NY (September 25, 2015) – For the past 57 years, as sure as the sun would come up in the morning and set in the evening, there was one thing you could count on — Kenny Rogers would soon be coming to a venue near you to perform.
However, that time is now drawing to a close. Kenny Rogers announced on NBC’s The Today Show that his next world tour commencing in 2016 will be his last.
Two years ago, Kenny Rogers announced that his then current tour of Europe would most likely be his last overseas trek. He said at the time 'There is a fine line between being driven and being selfish ' I have crossed that line a few times ' and I don't want to do that to my boys.'

Those twin boys are now eleven and Rogers is 77 and, according to the NBC interview, he's ready to hang up his touring shoes for good.
Before he's done, though, he plans on doing one more world tour in 2016 although dates won't be announced until a later date. Rogers said 'It's happily sad or sadly happy. I'm going to do a big worldwide tour, and it's going to be my last. I'm going to say goodbye at that point; I've done this long enough.'

Singer Kenny Rogers is coming out with a remarkable 76th album, a collection of Christmas songs. He told TODAY's Carson Daly and Savannah Guthrie about it, and revealed that he plans to go into retirement with a bang: a worldwide farewell tour whose final stop will be TODAY! Watch the video here:

Today also marks the release his first new Christmas album in seventeen years titled: ONCE AGAIN IT’S CHRISTMAS (Warner Bros. / Warner Music Nashville). The festive set is Rogers’ first Christmas release since 1998 and his sixth Christmas release overall.
For more information:

The festive set will be Rogers’ first Christmas release since 1998’s CHRISTMAS FROM THE HEART and his sixth Christmas release overall. Several special guest stars join Rogers on Once Again It’s Christmas, including Alison Krauss (“Some Children See Him”), Jennifer Nettles (“Here It Is Christmas/Baby, It’s Cold Outside”), Home Free (collaborates with Rogers on “Children, Go Where I Send Thee”), Jim Brickman (guests on “That Silent Night”), and Winfield’s Locket (sings with Rogers on “There’s A New Kid In Town”).

Rogers also co-wrote a powerful song called “The Light” with long-time bandmate Steve Glassmeyer and former bandmate, Warren Hartman. The song concludes the album. The new project was produced by Kyle Lehning and Hartman, who were joined by Darren Rust as co-producer for the song, “Children, Go Where I Send Thee.” Steve Sundholm and Jim Brickman produced “That Silent Night.”
The Once Again It’s Christmas album cover art, is a photo taken by Rogers that he entitled “Red Tree.” He captured the wintry scene while shooting in Yakima, Washington, in December 2003.
 Rogers received an Honorary Masters of Photography Degree from Professional Photographers of America (PPA) in 2014 for his contributions to the world of photography.

I can’t tell you how much fun it was recording a Christmas record again,” Rogers said. “I’m excited for people to hear it. I feel like this is a special group of songs — both old and new — and I was particularly lucky to be joined by many talented guest artists and musicians who each have something unique to say.”
Since the release of his first ever Christmas album, Christmas, in 1981, Rogers has embarked on an annual Christmas & Hits Tour, which continues this winter for the thirty-fourth straight year. It’s a holiday that holds special meaning for Rogers.
Once Again It's Christmas Cover ART

Christmas is my favorite time of year. It’s a very important season for me, especially now that I have twin boys who just turned 11 years old. It’s reminded me of how you see it through different eyes when you’re a parent. It’s wonderful,” Rogers said.

Rogers’ Once Again It’s Christmas Tour featuring Linda Davis will include performances of holiday favorites and his No. 1 hits through concerts across the U.S. and Canada.
