Carissa Leigh releases Tribute To Troops this Memorial Day Weekend

AXS Hosts Exclusive Listening Party

NASHVILLE, TN. (May 26, 2017)
Just in time for the Memorial Day holiday, talented singer/songwriter, Carissa Leigh, celebrates the release of her charity single "At Night." A haunting tribute to our troops battling PTSD, Carissa will be donating all proceeds from the release to Operation Stand Down. "At Night" was produced by Los Angeles trailblazer, Tone Def (Green Day, Santana, Outkast, Black Eye Peas), and can be found on iTunes and other digital retailers.

AEG owned has the audio exclusive HERE.

Carissa explains the inspirations behind the release: " At Night came from conversations I had with someone I was dating about how he might not be in the Middle East any more but sometimes at night, he would wake up and think he was. 
He was a big, strong guy, and to see him get emotional inspired me to write about guys like him, who seem okay but sometimes at night, they let their guard down. I wanted to give the proceeds to OSDTN because I know they do amazing work with struggling veterans, actually part of the chorus was inspired by something I saw in their lobby that said "home of the free, because of the brave.""

Operation Stand Down was a natural choice for the Nashville based artist as she spends her free time volunteering with the organization.  

2016 found the release of Carissa's 14-song project, "Better Than I've Been."  Showcasing her incredible vocals and autobiographical songwriting skills, the album was produced by Tone Def & can be found HERE on iTunes. Industry and fans first turned their heads to Carissa Leigh with her 2014 debut of "Bad Boy" and then later with "Pack That Bag." Produced by Tyler Cain (Meghan Linsey, James Otto, Ashley Monroe) and co-written by Leigh and J.T. Hodges“Pack That Bag” impacted over 5 million country fans.


An eclectic music lover, Carissa Leigh grew up listening to Dolly Parton in one ear and The Allman Brothers Band in the other. 

Her grandfather was a die-hard Country fan, while her father’s loyalties lie with rock 'n' roll. Both influenced Carissa growing up, but as the years went by it was the sounds of Shania Twain and Keith Urban that she found making their way into her own music. 

So it's of no surprise that she ended up in Nashville. Industry and fans first turned their heads to this promising new voice with the 2014 release of her EP Blackbird, which landed her a feature in Billboard.

Eric Church owns Nashville crowd in first of two tour-closing shows


Again Sets Arena Record; Delivers Marathon 39-Song Set to 18,996

Saturday, May 27, 2017
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Eric Church fans have come to expect a transcendent experience when they attend one of his concerts. Friday night at Bridgestone Arena – the first of a two-night, sold-out hometown stand that wraps the Holdin’ My Own Tour – Church built a record crowd into a frenzy with the help of the East Nashville Magnet High School Choir as he closed show opener “Mistress Named Music.”

“Yeah, I’m married to a dream with a mistress named music,” the gathered throng sang in unison, nearly 19,000-strong record-breaking rocking Bridgestone Arena like the hometown Nashville Predators did just a few days ago in the same venue as they clinched a spot in the Stanley Cup.

Church told fans he promises attendees at every show the band will give everything they have. On Friday night, the visibly pumped singer-songwriter promised to take it further and made a simple request.

“I think it’s safe to say we’re going to give you more than we have over these two nights,” Church told the roaring crowd. “I just need you to meet me halfway.”

Of course, none of this is new for Church or his fans. Nashville has been full of milestone moments over the years and this weekend’s two-night hometown stand at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena marks the frenzied end of the cross-continent Holdin’ My Own Tour. Over 900,000 fans have made it the No.1 most-attended music tour in the world in 2017 (Pollstar) with sell outs in of each of the more than 60 shows he’s played since January.

Church has greeted each new crowd with a marathon set list and nearly four hours of music, playing more than three dozen fan favorites and deep cuts alike in a fully immersive experience that includes an intermission and no opening act. Friday night, while performing the title track of his fifth studio album, Mr. Misunderstood, Church brought out now-15-year-old McKinley "Mickey" Smay, who appears on the album's cover, to jam. Church's congregation responded in their usual overenthusiastic way, as captured by the Nashville Scene, which profiled "the country outsider" in a cover story to preview this weekend's shows.

“They’re not like other fans – especially country fans,” Marissa R. Ross wrote in the Scene. “They sing along and know every word, and are more excited for deep cuts than singles like ‘Springsteen.’ The camaraderie in the crowd, the fervent dedication, the way people in the audience respond to each song – offering up some Jack Daniels during ‘Drink in My Hand,’ or raising a shoe during ‘These Boots,’ as a sign of solidarity, but also in hope Church might grab one and sign it onstage – are more like the rituals of the traveling rock cults associated with Phish or The Grateful Dead.”

Speaking of the Dead, Church and his longtime band covered “Tennessee Jed” Friday night before reprising Chief’s “Over When It’s Over” with Joanna Cotten on guest vocals, followed by an unexpected cover of Ben Harper’s “Steal My Kisses”—two unique cover jams just for Bridgestone’s crowd. In all, Church played 39 songs during his two sets with the to-the-rafters crowd standing the entire show, raising their glasses—and boots – when prompted. At one point, more than two hours into the show, Church stopped to gather album covers, platters of vinyl and magazines from fans before taking out a silver Sharpie and signing each, handing them back to fans as the crowd cheered.

Church drew a new arena record 18,996 fans Friday night, breaking February’s 18,514 set by Bon Jovi. That record broke Church’s previous Bridgestone mark of 18,411 set Jan. 10, 2015. The singer has a chance to break his new record again Saturday night with another sold-out show, the 62nd and final of the tour. Church set the mark using a 360-degree stage and audience configuration and despite canceling 2,214 tickets for the shows previously listed on the secondary market.

Church once again opened a pop-up store in East Nashville (address: 218 South 11th Street) for the third consecutive year with a portion of the proceeds benefiting his and his wife Katherine’s non-profit Chief Cares foundation that serves more than 2.5 million people around the globe with charitable giving. For more information on Chief Cares Fund, visit

The pop-up store will be open through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. where it will feature rare items specific to the Holdin' My Own Tour. The store will open again Thursday, June 8, through Sunday, June 11, during the same hours and will feature exclusive merchandise unavailable anywhere else, such as the debut a never-before-seen design of his These Boots by Lucchese cowboy boot line, a custom Orion Cooler and vintage tour T-shirts and posters. The boot design is called The Chattanooga Lucy after the “the most thrilling country dance tune to come along in ages” (Rolling Stone Country) from his fifth studio album, Mr. Misunderstood. Church’s devotees have one more chance at making it to the sold-out Holdin’ My Own finale. If they come in to the Nashville pop-up store Saturday and purchase the store’s exclusive poster, they have a chance of finding a pair of tickets to that night’s show.

Set 1:
Mistress Named Music, That's Damn Rock & Roll, The Outsiders, Knives of New Orleans, Drink in My Hand, Carolina, How 'Bout You, What I Almost Was, Cold One, Round Here Buzz, Mr. Misunderstood, Talladega, Like a Wrecking Ball, Pledge Allegiance to the Hag, Smoke a Little Smoke
Set 2:
Ain't Killed Me Yet, Guys Like Me, Lotta Boot Left to Fill, Record Year, Homeboy, Chattanooga Lucy, Two Pink Lines ('17 version), Kill a Word, Tennessee Jed (Grateful Dead cover), Over When It's Over, Steal My Kisses (Ben Harper cover),

Three Year Old, These Boots, Springsteen
Sinners Like Me, 16th Avenue (Lacy J. Dalton cover), Those I've Loved, Holdin' My Own

Fans who will be in town for CMA Fest and missed Church’s two-night stand at Bridgestone can catch The Chief at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium Friday, June 9 at 10 p.m. And Church has announced eight more shows in 2017 after the close of his current tour:

Rhonda Vincent teams up with Daryle Singletary on upcoming duets album American Grandstand set for release July 7

Album Features 12 Traditional Country Tracks 
including Lead Single, “One” 
Pre-order at -

NASHVILLE, TENN. (May 26, 2017) 
Rhonda Vincent, who The Wall Street Journal dubbed “The New Queen of Bluegrass,” is teaming up with country sensation Daryle Singletary for the upcoming duets album, AMERICAN GRANDSTAND, set for release July 7. The project delivers real traditional country music with a unique American twist. This must-have album will be released via Upper Management Music, and fans can pre-order American Grandstand HERE.

“I’ve always loved singing with Daryle Singletary. He’s one of the greatest singers in this generation of country music,” said Vincent. “It’s so fun to sing with someone who challenges me as a singer. The songs were given great thought, along with one that was totally unexpected. It’s one of the best projects I’ve ever been part of. I am so proud of this recording, and I cannot wait for the world to hear our wonderful creation, American Grandstand.”

The lead single, “One,” offers the very first taste of American Grandstand. The slow love song takes fans on a musical journey. The track may sound familiar, as it was previously made famous by country legends George Jones and Tammy Wynette, whose demanding vocal duets helped propel both acts to superstardom. Singletary and Vincent first performed “One” together at the legendary Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman Auditorium in April of 2016. Due to the overwhelming response, the dynamic pair chose to add the track to American Grandstand.

Standout songs include the title track, which was written by Vincent. When Vincent and Singletary were first trying to think of a title, American Grandstand stood out, which by definition is “to behave or speak in a way that is intended to impress people and to gain public approval.” This isn’t Vincent’s first venture into country music, as her previous Grammy-nominated studio album Only Me featured a combination of six traditional country songs and six bluegrass tracks, featuring “We Must Have Been Out of Our Minds,” which is also included on American Grandstand.

“Rhonda and I have been singing together since my first CD on Giant Records in 1994. I've been a fan of Rhonda's singing before that, but since then for sure and it's obvious as she has sung on most of my Indie records as a background vocalist or a duet partner,” said Daryle Singletary. “If you love traditional country music, and remember songs originally sung by well-known duet partners like George Jones and Tammy Wynette, Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn, and Merle Haggard and Bonnie Owens, this is a must-have CD that we are extremely excited about.”

Fans will have the chance to experience both Singletary and Vincent together as they play select shows later this year (full schedule 
HERE). Fans in the Nashville area will get multiple opportunities to experience traditional music at its finest, as the pair will appear on the hit show, “Music City Roots," along with an appearance at CMA Music Festival, plus a must-see album release party at The Nashville Palace.
