After making his inaugural trip to the UK and Ireland in early 2013 for the CMA Songwriter’s Series with Kristian Bush, Brett James, and Bob DiPiero, RCA Records Nashville artist Chris Young is packing his bags for another hop across the pond in March to perform back-to-back dates at the C2C Festival. On March 15 he’ll take the stage in Dublin, Ireland then travel to London, England on March 16 for the closing date of the festival. The 28-year old will then join Braid Paisley as the “Beat This Winter” tour hits international turf for shows in Stavanger Norway (3/19), Oslo, Norway (3/22), Gotteborg, Sweden (3/23) and Stockholm, Sweden (3/25) before heading home at the end of the month.


Last year we had some lost luggage issues to start off the trip, so I’m really hoping my bags make it with me this time,” jokes Young. “I’m really excited to be returning to Europe! It’s so great to see so many fans in other countries and always cool to see them singing along with my songs, even if it hasn’t been a single.”


Chris’ new single, “Who I Am With You,” from his recently released album 'A.M.', is making an immediate impact at country radio and with critics. Music Row Magazine said, "This guy is arguably our finest young Country vocalist. This powerful love song gives him plenty of room to emote. I remain an enormous fan. Play this now.” After wrapping up Brad Paisley’s BEAT THIS WINTER TOUR, Chris will join George Strait on select dates in April before hitting the road with Dierks Bentley on the RISER TOUR beginning in May.

Brad Paisley To Be Honored With Harmony Award At 2013 Symphony Ball

Posted by Administrator on October 5, 2013 at 1:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Country superstar Brad Paisley will receive the 2013 Harmony Award at the 29th annual Symphony Ball, event co-chairs Mrs. Robert Dale Pilkinton, Jr. (Jane Anne) and Mrs. Gustavus A. Puryear IV (Jennifer) announced today. The award will be presented on Saturday, December 14, 2013, at Schermerhorn Symphony Center, where Paisley will join the orchestra to perform one of his hits.


Each December, at its annual Symphony Ball fundraiser, the Nashville Symphony presents the Harmony Award to an individual who exemplifies the harmonious spirit of Nashville’s thriving musical community. “As one of country music’s biggest stars, Brad has made a huge impact by staying true to his artistic and personal vision,” says Alan Valentine, CEO and President of the Nashville Symphony, “We can’t think of anyone today more deserving of this award, which over the years has honored the many artists who’ve helped make Nashville the thriving creative capital that it is today. Without a doubt, Brad’s talents and contribution to the music of Nashville have been outstanding.”


Over the course of his career, Paisley has earned three GRAMMY® Awards, 14 Academy of Country Music Awards (including five Male Vocalist of the Year awards) and 14 Country Music Association awards (including Entertainer of the Year in 2010), as well as three awards from ASCAP as Country Music Songwriter/Artist of the Year. He is also a proud member of the Grand Ole Opry, having been inducted in 2001. Since his first No. 1 single in 1999, Paisley has placed 22 singles at the top of the charts. His current single is “I Can’t Change the World,” from his acclaimed new album, Wheelhouse — which also includes the back-to-back No. 1 hits “Southern Comfort Zone” and “Beat This Summer.” Wheelhouse is Paisley’s first self-produced project, on which he wrote or co-wrote all of the tracks. He is currently finishing his highly successful 2013 Beat This Summer Tour, presented by Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® and will co-host the 47th Annual CMA Awards with Carrie Underwood for the sixth consecutive time on Nov. 6.


Paisley was born in 1972, in tiny Glen Dale, West Virginia. His earliest memory is of his railroad-worker grandfather, a fan of Merle Travis, Chet Atkins and Les Paul, playing guitar. At 8, Paisley received his first guitar from his grandfather. By 10 he was performing, and by 13 he was a regular on the Saturday-night Jamboree USA radio show at Wheeling’s WWVA, becoming the youngest person ever inducted into the Jamboree Hall of Fame. While still in his teens, he opened shows for Roy Clark, Jack Greene and Little Jimmy Dickens. He garnered a songwriting deal at EMI Music Publishing within a week of graduating from Belmont University’s music business program. Nashville demos on which he began to appear led to his signing by Arista Records.


Past recipients of the Nashville Symphony’s Harmony Award include Amy Grant, LeAnn Rimes, Michael W. Smith, Mike & Linda Curb, Lyle Lovett, Trisha Yearwood, Dolly Parton, The Judds, Steve Winwood, Vince Gill, Wynonna and Naomi Judd, Chet Atkins, Martina McBride, Rascal Flatts, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Marty Stuart and Keith Urban.

Artists Sign On For iHeartRadio's 'Show Your Stripes' Campaign

Posted by Administrator on June 12, 2013 at 10:45 AM Comments comments (0)


Clear Channel has launched iHeartRadio’s Show Your Stripes, a company-wide community service project to address unemployment among U.S. military veterans and to encourage businesses to hire skilled veterans. The company is set to spend more than $75 million on radio, digital and other resources to highlight skills brought back by returning servicemen and women that are valuable to employers.


To launch the campaign, artists including Elton John, John Legend, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, Ryan Seacrest, Mario Lopez, Trace Adkins and LL Cool J have recorded a series of PSAs that showcase stories from veterans who have successfully found jobs. Clarkson tells the story of Jeff Marshall, a 10-year member of the U.S. Air Force special operations command who is now working in online operations at Facebook.


By the year 2016, more than a million servicemen and women will end their military careers and transition back to civilian life. According to a 2012 survey by Prudential and Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, 60 percent of returning servicemen and women said they have faced a challenge translating the valuable skills they obtained in the military into civilian employment. 98 percent of all veterans cited at least one challenge in seeking employment.
