Produced by Dave Bechtel and recorded at Ocean Way Studios in Nashville, Hurricane Stomp is a 5-song collection that throws some punches and invites listeners into compelling story lines. According to Brown, the EP tells stories with a traditional Country folklore style. “I just try to be real, and I don’t worry about political correctness or any of that stuff,” he says.

On it’s day of release, Hurricane Stomp peaked at No. 16 on iTunes’ top Country albums. The EP was also featured on the “New Artist Spotlight” page on iTunes.

Most recently, the Orlando Sentinel wrote a feature on Brown, stating, “Brown writes music with traditional home-grown lyrics blended with an upbeat style. His songwriting is inspired by old-school musicians such as Apopka’s own John Anderson and younger singers like Justin Moore.” The full article can be viewed here.

In 2009, Brown turned to YouTube where he started regularly posting videos showcasing his music, charm and humor. He quickly established a solid fan base on the social platform and was quickly discovered and recognized by USA Today, who noted him as being a YouTube sensation. He currently has over 226,000 followers on his Facebook; 46,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel and his videos have registered over 7 million in views.

Brown is a seasoned performer and has already opened up for popular acts, including Justin Moore, Jon Pardi and Brothers Osborne on the “College Town Throw Down” tour.

Keb’ Mo’ Set To Release “Keb’ Mo’ LIVE – That Hot Pink Blues Album” April 15; Available NOW For Pre-Sale

Nationwide Tour Set To Kick Off On March 3

(Nashville, Tenn. – Feb. 29, 2016) – Grammy award-winning singer, songwriter, guitarist and contemporary blues artist, Keb’ Mo’, is set to release Keb’ Mo’ LIVE – That Hot Pink Blues Album on April 15. Released on Kind of Blue Music/RED Distribution, the album is now available for pre-sale through iTunes, Amazon and KebMo.com with “Life Is Beautiful” being offered as an immediate download.

In his newest release, Keb’ Mo’ LIVE – That Hot Pink Blues Album, Keb’ Mo’ delivers some of his best material in the most authentic form, through live recordings. Recorded throughout the past year while on tour, and produced by Keb’s band mate and Grammy nominated producer, Casey Wasner, the double-disc album features 16 live recorded songs from Keb’ Mo’s extensive catalog. Captured in nine different cities, Keb’ is backed by keyboardist Michael B. Hicks, bassist Stan Sargeant (Leonard Cohen, Barry Manilow, Al Jarreau) and drummer Casey Wasner.

Working closely in the studio to choose just the right tracks, Keb’, Wasner and sound engineer/mixer, Aaron Hedden, forged a very special bond. Together, they lovingly chose a collection of songs that pays homage to an illustrious 21-year career in the music business, and it gleans stellar live cuts from many albums in Keb’s catalog. Several of the tracks are off his most recent album, BLUESAmericana, which garnered Keb’ Mo’ a 2015 Blues Music Award from the Blues Foundation for Best Contemporary Blues Album, three 2015 Grammy award nominations including Best Americana Album, and multiple other achievements.

Keb’ Mo’s combination of masterful, anecdotal writing skills, distinctive guitar versatility and rich, resonant, blues-soaked vocals are a testament to his respect in the music industry. Every song tells a story, and every story reminds listeners of why Keb’ Mo’ is one of the most multi-talented and engaging musical raconteurs on today’s roots rock and blues scene.

A portion of the proceeds from the album will be donated to Playing For Change, an organization that seeks to inspire, connect, and bring peace to the world through music by building music schools worldwide. Playing For Change has already supported the development of twelve schools, including in Mali, Thailand, Nepal, Brazil, South Africa and more. Keb’ has been involved with the organization since its inception. He has been featured in many related videos and events to help attend to the children’s human and artistic necessities and unite them through inspiration rather than devastation. Keb’ was featured on the Playing For Change album: Playing for Change 3: Songs Around the World, which was released in 2014 and features over 180 musicians from 31 countries, including Keith Richards, Sara Bareilles, David Hidalgo, Cesar Rosas, Taj Mahal and many others.

Leading up to the release of Keb’ Mo’ LIVE – That Hot Pink Blues Album, Keb’ Mo’ will make various media appearances in support of this highly anticipated new release. Following the album launch, Keb’ and his three-pieced band will take their show to fans across North America throughout their tour. For a full list of tour dates, visit www.kebmo.com.

The Cains’ New Music Video “Knock Knock” Now Premiering On CMT Music

Trio among the next group of emerging artists featured in CMT’s Artist Discovery campaign

Available for viewing HERE!

(Nashville, Tenn. – February 15, 2016) – Sibling trio, The Cains, have released a new music video for their single, “Knock Knock,” which is now premiering on CMT platforms. The Cains are among the next group of emerging artists to be featured in CMT’s Artist Discovery campaign this February. Directed by Justin Clough, the edgy new video is now available for viewing multiple times per day on the 24/7 digital music channel CMT Music and on CMT’s website, here.

Written by Jaida Dreyer, Stephony Smith and Dave Thompson, “Knock Knock” is the latest single off the group’s self-titled EP, The Cains, that features angst-filled vocals with a country-rock twist. The track is currently playing on Country radio, and is available on iTunes, Amazon and other major digital retailers.

Of the meaning behind the new video, The Cains’ Madison Cain commented, “At first listen, ‘Knock Knock’ seems to be written from the perspective of someone who is being shut out emotionally. So we sat down together and began thinking, ‘What if the song had another meaning? Something a little below the surface?’”

Regarding the visual aspects of the video, Madison explains, “The video tells a story of being completely locked in your own mind. We perform alone in a white room wearing clothes that are dark and surreal. In some scenes, we are frozen and can’t break out. ‘Lights are on, but nobody’s home’ is what we tried to portray.”

In addition to the release of their new single and music video, the trio was featured in the “Who’s New” section of a February issue of Country Weekly, where they discuss the making of the “Knock Knock” video and open up about Taylor Cain’s recent health scare.

The Cains have also added some impressive international performances to their list of accomplishments, including performances during C2C in 2015 and opening for Sasha McVeigh’s successful I Stand Alone U.K. Tour, returning with scores of dedicated new fans anxious to hear more music. They won’t be disappointed when they get their hands on “Knock Knock.”

The two sisters and brother from Hartselle, Ala. have shared a lot over the years, but their passion for music is what has brought them together as The Cains, a Country band with unique harmonies and a variety of influences. Taylor, Madison and Logan Cain are not only singers and songwriters, but also multifaceted entertainers and musicians who play guitar, piano, bass, harmonica, mandolin, drums and more. Their original music features compelling, edgy lyrics that evoke emotion and is inspired by a vast combination of genres from Country, soul and pop to Americana, folk and contemporary Christian.

CMC ROCKS QLD COUNTRY MUSIC FESTIVAL IS OFFICIALLY SOLD OUT

Recording Superstar Jason Aldean Headlines International Contingent to Play in Front of Capacity Australian Audience in March 2016

Brisbane QLD, AUS / Nashville, TN, USA – Feb. 11, 2016: Rob Potts, Entertainment Edge, and Chugg Entertainment announced today that the 2016 CMC Rocks QLD Country Music Festival, to be held in Queensland, Australia, March 11-13, 2016 has sold out of all tickets. This is Australian music history in the making as it is the first country music festival to have ever sold out in Australia.

This year’s festival has some of the biggest names in country music charts going to Australia, with ACM “Entertainer of the Year” nominee Jason Aldean being this year’s festival headliner. RIAA’s top digital country male artist of all time has headlined stadiums in The States and will continue the momentum when playing in front of a capacity crowd in Queensland. His “most ambitious album to date” (Associated Press) OLD BOOTS NEW DIRT has been certified PLATINUM and has yielded three consecutive number one hits.

“I’ve heard Australians know how to have a good time,” said Aldean. “I have been looking forward to heading down under, but to hear it’s sold out already without ever playing Australia is really cool. We’re going to be sure those fans are talking about our show until the next time we make it over!”

Other big international names performing this year include Florida Georgia Line, Brantley Gilbert, Kelsea Ballerini, Cam, Kip Moore and more.  They will be joined by some of Australia’s most successful and exciting country music stars during the three day country music festival.

“We started this festival 9 years ago with a real belief that if we could deliver an exciting format and world’s best festival standards and practices, Australian and indeed, country fans from across the world, would come out and support the event,” says festival promoter Rob Potts. “We have seen the festival evolve and grow, and the move last year to Willowbank near Ipswich in Queensland was the final piece in its evolution to maximum SOLD OUT capacity. It is truly exciting to be making music history with the first ever sold out country music festival in Australia. We look forward to delivering many more great local and International line-ups as CMC Rocks Aussie country music for many years to come.”

“We’re thrilled to announce that for the first time in the festivals history, CMC Rocks has completely sold out. We couldn’t have achieved this incredible milestone without the support and loyalty of passionate country music lovers from across Australia and New Zealand and thank them for their on-going support,” says promoter Matthew Lazarus Hall of Chugg Entertainment. “We look forward to hosting some of the biggest names in country music next month and putting on one of the best country music festivals Australia has ever experienced.”

From the first incarnation of the festival in 2008, CMC Rocks has grown and evolved to become the key event on the Australian country music calendar. Attracting the biggest global names in country music over the last nine years and now one of Australia’s most recognized annual music events, audience numbers have kept growing year after year. Massive international stars from Taylor Swift to Alan Jackson, Tim McGraw to Lady Antebellum, have traveled from the other side of the world to headline the festival, and lineups have seen the Aussie debuts of both legends and rising stars.

Preceding the festival on the evening of the 10th March, 2016 will be Foxtel’s 6th Annual CMC Music Awards, the only viewer voted country music awards in the southern hemisphere. It will be held at QPAC Brisbane and broadcast LIVE on Foxtel’s Country Music Channel (‘CMC’) at 8.30pm AEDT. The awards will feature a star-studded lineup including performances by Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, Kelsea Ballerini, and Australian artist Adam Harvey. It is hosted by CMC Rocks ambassador and Australian country superstar Morgan Evans.

CMC Rocks QLD 2016 will be held on Fri March 11 – Sun March 13, over three days and nights in Ipswich, Queensland. Located within a one hour drive from Brisbane and Gold Coast domestic and international airports, the site allows for fantastic camping and glamping and a variety of travel options for festival goers as well as added accommodation options within a multitude of price categories to suit all budgets.
