LOS ANGELES, Calif. (April 30, 2021) – Ashlee Williss is a genre-melding maverick, on the cutting edge of Pop, Dance and Country, she effortlessly blends her southern roots with a light EDM flare in her new single, “Don’t Let The Music Die”, available now on all digital platforms. The upbeat, dance-inspired tune, produced by T.I Jakke (Ava Max hit “Kings & Queens”) – offers listeners a much needed break from the heaviness of current times, and was written by Williss (in the stairwell of her apartment, no less) with the hope of creating a three-minute moment of feel-good fun and inclusivity.

“When I wrote ‘Don’t Let the Music Die,’ I was imagining being in a crowd of people lost in the music,” said Williss of the song. “Covid took away those magical moments you only experience with human interaction. I wanted to relive that, even if only in my mind.” “Don’t Let the Music Die” is just the start from the DJ-turned-artist, music video is due out May 11.

Ashlee (aka DJ Bad Ash) made her mark as the one & only female county music DJ as well as spinning some of the hottest celeb events and notable festivals across the globe, Williss returns to the world of original music with a strong lineup of on-deck releases coming down the pipeline in 2021.

RELEASE, “DON’T LET THE MUSIC DIE”
Produced by No. 1 Airplay Songwriter T.I Jakke

About Ashlee Williss:

Born out of a life of trials and tribulations, Ashlee Williss’ story is one of a singer-songwriter who needed music to escape – and turned that escape into her purpose. Seamlessly blending genres of pop, dance and country, her sound and story immediately connect with audiences who crave that same escape. Seeking out more than her humble beginnings had to offer in Jacksonville FL, a move to L.A. at 18 quickly saw promising opportunities including notoriety on ABC’s The Bachelor and Fuller House, several song placements on TV/Film; singing, songwriting and voiceover work for all 12 episodes of Netflix hit show Absurd Planet; Gibson guitar endorsement; performances at The GRAMMYS® and American Music Awards gifting suites; and even a song ‘on hold’ by country superstars Rascal Flatts.

After tragedy struck in 2013 (Williss’ boyfriend passed away the day she launched her debut single), Williss took a creative detour into the world of DJing. She found herself at the board as DJ Bad Ash, opening for acts like Snoop Dog, Gwen Stefani, Adam Levine, Diplo, and Cardi B (among others), and taking the stage at festivals like Stagecoach, Tortuga Music Festival, and Country2Country. Though the venture made Williss fall in love with music again, “I missed playing my own songs so much… I saw this as the perfect opportunity to re-embrace that exposed singer-songwriter I’d put aside for so long.” Partnering with hit producer T.I Jakke (Ava Max, “Kings & Queens”), “Don’t Let the Music Die” will launch the first of several new tunes from Williss – a dancy, mid-tempo tune encompassing her unique mix of pop, country and dance all in one.

NASHVILLE, TN – Aug. 25, 2020  – Multi-Platinum entertainer Jason Aldean joins Corona®, to celebrate the end of summer with a virtual backyard performance, hosted on Twitter (via @LiveNation) and Live from Home, Live Nation’s Virtual Concert Hub this Friday, (8/28 at 5:00P CT). With the Backyard Beach virtual concert, Corona is encouraging fans to kick back at their own backyard beach and enjoy some of their favorite music and beer.

“This summer has been a lot different for all of us with more time at home but I wanted to perform for my fans no matter where we all are,” Aldean said. “Everyone should get a chance to kick back and enjoy an ice-cold Corona and lime while listening to some music before summer is officially over.”

Aldean will perform fan-favorites from his catalog, that includes 23 radio chart-toppers, along with his current climbing single, “Got What I Got,” from his sixth consecutive #1 selling album 9 (Macon Music/Broken Bow Records).

Fans can take advantage of the final days of summer with the celebratory concert series and have a chance to win a variety of prizes by following the instructions in special sweepstakes call-to-action posts on Corona’s Instagram, Facebook and Twitter channels. The sweepstakes will run from Aug. 26 through Aug. 28, where one grand prize winner will be named “Jason’s featured fan of summer” and will win an autographed vinyl album, Corona merchandise and be featured on Jason’s website and social media accounts with a text shout out from Aldean.

As always, Corona encourages consumers 21 and older to enjoy its products and to Relax responsibly®.

After almost 15 years at the top of his format, three-time ACM “Entertainer of the Year” Aldean has seen trends come and go. He’s helped bring a few out of the shadows, like a Country-music Columbus making the mainstream’s first contact with hard rock (“Hicktown”), hip-hop (“Dirt Road Anthem”) and R&B (“Burnin’ It Down”). But after all that time, he continues to hold his ground making modern albums with an old-school soul—most recently with his ninth studio album, 9, which debuted at the top spot on Billboard’s Country Albums chart. Notably, all eight of Aldean’s previous studio albums have been certified GOLD or PLATINUM by the RIAA, while bolstering 15 billion streams and more than 18 million albums sold as well as 23 radio chart-toppers.

Country Music Legend, Charley Pride, Dies At 86

DALLAS, Texas. — Charley Pride, whose rich baritone voice and impeccable song-sense altered American culture, died Saturday, December 12, 2020, in Dallas, Texas of complications from Covid-19 at age 86.

Born a sharecropper’s son in Sledge, Mississippi, on March 18, 1934, Pride emerged from Southern cotton fields to become country music’s first Black superstar and the first Black member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.

“No person of color had ever done what he has done,” said Darius Rucker in the PBS American Masters film Charley Pride: I’m Just Me.

Pride was a gifted athlete who at first thought baseball would be his path from poverty, labor, and strife. But his musical acumen was more impressive than his pitching arm or his hitting skills, and he emerged as one of the most significant artists at RCA Records, with chart-topping hits including “Kiss An Angel Good Mornin’,” “Is Anybody Goin’ to San Antone,” and “Mountain of Love.” He won the Country Music Association’s Entertainer of the Year award in 1971, its top male vocalist prize in 1971 and 1972, and a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2020.

His final performance came on November 11, 2020, when he sang “Kiss An Angel Good Mornin’” during the CMA Awards show at Nashville’s Music City Center with Jimmie Allen, a modern-day hitmaker who counts Pride among his heroes.

Charley Frank Pride was not the first Black artist to make important contributions to country music — DeFord Bailey was a star of the Grand Ole Opry from 1927 through 1941 — but Pride was a trailblazer who emerged during a time of division and rancor.

After a stint in the Army, time working at a Missouri smelting plant, and some unsuccessful attempts to break into big-league baseball, he came to Nashville in 1963 and made demonstration recordings with help from manager Jack Johnson.

Those recordings languished for two years until Johnson met with producer Jack Clement, who offered songs for Pride to learn. On August 16, 1965, Clement produced Pride at RCA Studio B, and the results of that session impressed RCA’s Chet Atkins, who signed Pride to a recording contract.

In 1967, Pride’s recording of Clement’s “Just Between You and Me” broke into country’s Top Ten, and Pride quit his job as a smelter. Iron ore was behind him, and platinum records lay ahead.

Between 1967 and 1987, Pride delivered 52 Top 10 country hits, won Grammy awards, and became RCA Records’ top-selling country artist. His musicality opened minds and superseded prejudice.

“We’re not color blind yet, but we’ve advanced a few paces along the path and I like to think I’ve contributed something to that process,” Pride wrote in his memoir.

Today, Black artists including Allen, Rucker, Mickey Guyton, Rissi Palmer, Rhiannon Giddens, Yola, and others add new chapters to country music’s story. Charley Pride’s impact is evident and important to all of them, and also to every other country performer who builds bridges with melody and sincerity.

Charley Pride escaped the cotton fields, where labor hurt his hands, back, and knees. He transcended and ascended through connection. Through fortitude and artistry, he became a member of the Grand Ole Opry and a beloved American icon.

Charley Pride was the son of Tessie Stewart Pride and Mack Pride, Sr. He was the husband of Ebby Rozene Cohran Pride. His children are Carlton Kraig Pride, Charles Dion Pride, and Angela Rozene Pride. His grandchildren are Carlton Kraig Pride, Jr., Malachi Pride, Syler Pride, Ebby Pride, and Arrentino Vassar. His two great-grandchildren are Skyler Pride and Carlton Kraig Pride, III. he is preceded in death by brothers Jonas McIntyre, Mack Pride, Jr., Louis Pride, Edward Pride, and Joe L. Pride, and by sister Bessie Chambers. He leaves behind siblings Harmon Pride, Stephen Pride, Catherine Sanders, and Maxine Pride, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to The Pride Scholarship at Jesuit College Preparatory School, St. Philips School and Community Center, The Food Bank, or the charity of your choice.

Eric Church Wins Entertainer of the Year

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – In a year unlike any other, it’s fitting that the 54th annual CMA Awards culminated with the genre’s dark horse Eric Church earning the title of Entertainer of the Year.

“If there was ever a year not to win…” Church laughed as he took the stage to accept the night’s ultimate trophy. “This year, at least for me, has been about loss – loss of life, loss of playing shows, loss of freedom, loss of kids being in school… And you know what the win is? The win is we all were here tonight, together as Country music – in person, live and I believe this, I really believe this: It’s gonna be music that brings us out of this. That is the one thing that’s gonna save the world. Politicians are about division; music is about unity.”

Before leaving the stage, the stunned entertainer added as a rallying call, “And I promise you, it’s gonna take everyone in this room to unite.”

Now six studio albums into his career, the North Carolinian always approaches things differently. Whether playing back-to-back nights in nearly 30 cities on his 2019 Double Down Tour or pushing himself to new creative limits with his recording process, Church has steadily amassed a faithful congregation – the Church Choir – since 2006’s release of “How ‘Bout You.” Many of those fans took to social media to congratulate the star, with an outpouring of comments proclaiming, “Congratulations Chief!” And it was those fans he was speaking to in the press conference following the awards show.

“When you go to a concert and your favorite artist plays your favorite song, and you throw your arm around the person next to you, you don’t worry about whether he’s a Republican or a Democrat, whether he’s pro-life or pro-choice. You’re in that moment and you’re pulling on the rope the same way. I think what we’re missing right now in America is more of the stuff that unites us versus what divides us,” Church shared. “I swear — it’s going to be music that saves us… It’s going to be about how we do it, and how we do it responsibly, and how we show that this is how we’re gonna leave COVID in the dust.”

Praised by Esquire as “one of the most singular working artists in any genre,” Church’s foresight with his new music, while written pre-pandemic, still addresses the underlying sense of division that was already palpable in our nation. Whether threw his spoken word piece entitled “Who Will Answer The Call?”, released earlier this year, where he shared a message of resolve, or by offering hope in “Through My Ray-Bans,” Church’s music has already served as a unifier .

“There’s a point in the show where I walk out in the crowd and I put my arms around them, we get pictures and it’s what life’s about. It’s that moment… What ‘Through My Ray-Bans’ is about is that I wish we could freeze that and I wish that was how life was — right there, just how I saw you.”
          I see a place where a moment in time
          Is a kaleidoscope of color on a canvas of white
         Where the voices roar at the noise of the poet’s rhyme


         Everybody’s got their arms around everybody else’s shoulders
         Guarding against the world outside like an army of Friday night soldiers
         The battle wages tomorrow but tonight you don’t give a damn
         Wish you could stay the way I see you through my Ray-Bans

Country Thunder will make a Triumphant Return in 2021

Country Thunder 2020 has been officially cancelled, but it’ll be worth the wait!  Here’s some info from the folks at Country Thunder:

Due to the continued Covid-19 outbreak, and in consultation with state and local government officials, organizers have made the difficult decision to reschedule Country Thunder Arizona to 2021. With that announcement today,  Country Thunder ensures the biggest party in Arizona will be worth the wait!

As promised, the Country Thunder Arizona 2021 lineup is re-set to include some of the biggest names in country music, including Luke Combs, Eric Church, Moran Wallen, and Dustin Lynch.

Luke Combs continues to rewrite the country music record books at every turn. Last week he became the first artist in the 56-year history of Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart whose first two studio albums each logged 25 or more weeks at No. 1.

Combs’ sophomore album What You See Is What You Get logged its 25th week on top. His 2017 debut, This One’s for You, amassed 50 weeks on top. He surpassed Taylor Swift, whose first two studio albums each logged 24 or more weeks at No. 1. UNBELIEVABLE!

Eric Church, as always, will take no prisoners when it comes to his live performance. On a concert stage, he is simply untouchable – fans in Arizona know this all too well!

Since his first release in 2006, “Chief” has amassed seven top-5 albums (three No. 1s), too many top-ten singles to count and every industry award imaginable.

Wallen’s debut album, If I Know Me, yielded three consecutive No. 1 singles— “Up Down,” “Whiskey Glasses,” and “Chasin’ You.” The multi-platinum artist is on fire and will light up the stage with these hits, and many more fan favorites.

Scoring over 2 BILLION total career streams, Dustin Lynch continues to affirm his place as one of Country’s elite stars. With Lynch’s incredible list of hits, he will start off the festival with a bang!!

The always-stellar supporting cast will be announced as further details become available.

All ticketing options will be automatically honored for the rescheduled 2021 dates – fans do not have to do a thing. Ticket holders will receive additional information regarding ticket options via email on Friday July 31, 2020. 

Arizona, we can’t wait to get back and see you all again!

ERIC CHURCH SNARLS IN NEW SINGLE: “STICK THAT IN YOUR COUNTRY SONG”

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Praised by the Los Angeles Times as a “forthright truth-teller” in Country music, Eric Church shared earlier this year that new music was coming. Writing and recording in a rural cabin in North Carolina, the current ACM Entertainer of the Year nominee has had his eagerly-anticipated new single hinted and speculated at throughout recent performances on ACM Presents: Our Country (“Never Break Heart”), Stagecouch (“Jenny”) and in a defiant spoken-word recording, “Through My Ray Bans.” Set for a world premiere with iHeart, Cox and Country radio nationwide locked for this Thursday, June 25, at 6 a.m. ET ahead of its Monday, June 29 add date at Country radio, the new single is “Stick That In Your Country Song.”
 
In keeping with his trademark desire to put fans first, Church initially teased the release in a video sent directly to Church Choir members. “I wanted you guys to hear from me first that a new single is about to hit the world,” he shared. “It’s gonna be the tip of the spear for what’s coming after, and it’s a big spear. I believe it’s the best we’ve ever been in our career.”
 
“I try to put myself in the most uncomfortable situations,” Church explained at the CRS “Chasing Creativity” keynote event earlier this year. “Making it hard, and making sure no one is mailing it in. That’s always something we have to push ourselves to chase. For me, it’s very elusive. With creativity, the harder you try and stress, the more it doesn’t happen.”
 
Never afraid to speak his truth, Church is celebrated by Esquire as “one of the most singular working artists in any genre.” With this new single, he offers a social commentary on the state of the world and provides a rallying cry for cities from Detroit to Baltimore and people from young military veterans to school teachers, culminating in an emphatic “Stick That In Your Country Song” as each chorus hits. With a lyric video highlighting this poignant message, Church again puts the focus on fans first by offering his Church Choir an exclusive sneak peek at the video this Thursday, June 25 ahead of its wide release on Friday, June 26.

The new music follows Church’s most recent critically acclaimed project, 2018’s Desperate Man, his sixth studio album which was named one of the year’s best by American Songwriter, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, Esquire, Los Angeles Times, NPR, Rolling Stone, Variety and Vulture, among others, also earning a GRAMMY nod for Best Country Album (his third nomination in the category).
