Tim Elliott Hits New Milestone with “I Got You” Breaking Top 40 on the Musicrow Chart

(Nashville, Tenn. – May 2, 2018) – 2018 has been a year of success so far for Country artist, TimElliott. Since the release of his most recent single, “I Got You,” the two-time North Carolina Artist of the Year has been receiving significant Country radio airplay. Just last week, Elliott hit a new milestone, breaking Top 40 on the MusicRow Chart.

Elliott looks back on the day he wrote the hit song, “When we sat down to write that day, we hoped to come up with a song that could connect with folks on an everyday basis. We thought something as simple as letting someone you love know ‘don’t worry I got you’ could make their day a little better. I never dreamed it would be my first Top 40. “

The single is the first ballad from Elliott, following his two up-tempo singles “Start Pourin’ Whiskey On It” and “What’s Not To Love,” both released in 2017. “I Got You” was written by Tim Elliott and Bill Diluigi and produced by Grammy Nominated Kent Wells.

“’I Got You’ was the first song I wrote when I got to Nashville. I knew we had something special when I heard the playback of the work tape. It’s been really cool to see the way this song has connected with fans and listeners,” says Elliott.

The blue-collar Country artist has built a solid touring foundation across the Southeast, playing more than 100 shows a year and reaching the impressive milestone of more than one million streams on Spotify. In 2017 alone, Elliott opened shows for Chris Young, Dustin Lynch, Frankie Ballard, Rodney Atkins, Tracy Lawrence, Kane Brown, Sammy Kershaw and others.

His music incorporates a diverse range of musical tastes and influences, including Hank Williams Sr., Frank Sinatra, and Sammy Davis.

Tim Elliott is the grandson of a West Virginia coal miner who also had a heart for music.  The backbreaking, dirty work didn’t stifle Elliott’s grandfather’s pursuit of playing music and serves as the backdrop of Elliott’s story; Bluegrass jam sessions were a regular occurrence on Saturday nights. Elliottmastered the acoustic guitar at the age of eight and banjo, mandolin and keyboard followed. Over the last few months, Elliott has traveled the country on a radio tour in support of the single release. Most recently, the Boone, North Carolina-native has visited Iowa, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Tennessee, New York, and Connecticut. He plans to continue traveling and visiting new stations throughout 2018.

Elliott is one of the founding members of Matthew 25:35, Inc., a non-profit organization which raises money to assist people in the community with a specific emphasis on feeding the hungry. He is also a passionate advocate for Cohn’s disease awareness; a disease that affects over 200,000 people each year in the US.

Ty Herndon Performs Outstanding Rendition of “America the Beautiful” and “God Bless America” at 2018 White House Correspondents’ Dinner

(Nashville, Tenn. – April 30, 2018) – Award-winning artist Ty Herndon was recently invited to perform at the 2018 White House Correspondents’ Dinner where he sang an exceptional rendition of “America The Beautiful” and “God Bless America.”  To view a clip of his performance, visit here.

The event, hosted by the White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA), featured comedian Michelle Wolf (Comedy Central’s Daily Show With Trevor Noah) on the entertainment line-up.

The Association, founded in 1914 to represent the White House press corps, works to maintain independent news media coverage of the president, advocating for access, handling logistics for pools of reporters who stay close to the president and those who travel with him and providing scholarships to journalism students.

The annual dinner has been attended by U.S. Presidents and First Ladies for decades as well as many other senior government officials and members of the press corps. Proceeds from the dinner support the association’s year-round work as well as scholarships for aspiring journalists and awards recognizing excellence in the journalism profession.

The WHCA represents the White House press corps in its dealings with the administration and advocates for journalists’ ability to see and report on the president and his staff.

Herndon attended the event with the intention of raising awareness for the “Beyond I Do” campaign which is working to bring attention to the discrimination of the LGBTQ community in the U.S. This campaign is raising awareness of this discrimination by giving real Americans a platform to tell their stories of being fired from their jobs, evicted from their homes, or denied basic services because of their sexual identity.

About Ty Herndon: Ty Herndon’s career has produced more than four million in album sales, a Grammy nomination, Dove Award and multiple No. 1 singles on the Country charts, including “What Mattered Most,” “Living in a Moment” and “It Must Be Love.”  Among his nine studio albums and 17-charted singles are the Top 10 hits, “I Want My Goodbye Back,” “Loved Too Much,” “A Man Holding On (To a Woman Letting Go)” and “Hands of a Working Man.”

Most recently, Herndon debuted his most ambitious album to date, titled House on Fire. He made history when he hosted the first-of-its-kind country music event, The Concert For Love and Acceptance. The event, designed to bring attention and support to at-risk youth, has received national attention from Boston Globe, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Tonight, and more.  Keep up with the latest on Ty Herndon and his music at www.tyherndon.com or follow him on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.

The City of Mcminnville Presents Steve Wariner with Key to the City

Wariner pays respect to long-time friend, mentor, fellow Opry member, and recently announced Country Music Hall of Fame inductee, Dottie West while visiting her hometown

                                           

(Nashville, Tenn. – April 30, 2018) Award-winning artist and highly regarded guitarist, Steve Wariner was recently presented with a key to the City of McMinnville.  The ceremony took place at the historic downtown Park Theater and coincided with Wariner’s concert benefitting the 10th Annual Citizens for Progress (CFP) Scholarship Fundraiser. Several government officials were in attendance for the special occasion including, the Mayor of McMinnville, Jimmy Haley, and Senator Janice Bowling, and the event was emceed by Colonel Thomas B. Vaughn. 

Wariner commented about the evening, saying “What a remarkable Saturday night! Keys to the great city of McMinnville from Mayor Jimmy Haley, a proclamation declaring Steve Wariner Day from the State Senator, Janice Bowling, along with the Mayor, and money raised for the Citizens for Progress Scholarship fund! Many thanks, Colonel Tom Vaughn and to everyone else who made the evening so special.”

The Citizens for Progress (CFP) was created in 2007 to help fund higher education for the youth of Warren County. Since the beginning, over $700,000 has been raised with over $600,000 awarded in scholarship aid. The focus of CFP is now to help support dual enrollment classes at Warren County High School (WCHS) for both TCAT and Motlow College in McMinnville.

While in the area, Wariner paid a visit to the gravesite of his long-time friend, mentor, fellow Opry member, and recently announced Country Music Hall of Fame inductee, Dottie West, who was born near McMinnville and whom Wariner toured with early on.

Wariner credits the legendary Dottie West for having discovered him at just 17 years old as he played a set in an Indiana club. West hired him on the spot to be her bass player, a gig that lasted three years. That opportunity led to Wariner being commissioned by his idol Chet Atkins to play bass in his band. It was Atkins that eventually signed Wariner to his first recording contract at RCA in 1977 and produced Wariner’s first recording session at the historic RCA Studio B. Since that day, Wariner has become a modern-day multi-genre icon earning fourteen #1 hits, over 30 Top 10 hits, three Gold albums, four GRAMMY Awards, three CMA Awards, one ACM Award, a Christian Country Music Association Award, a TNN/ Music City News Award and 15 BMI Million-Air Awards. Wariner is also a member of the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame, the National Thumbpickers Hall of Fame and the Music City Walk of Fame.  Wariner was one of only five guitar players in the world to be given the “Certified Guitar Player” (CGP) award by Chet Atkins (six including Atkins himself, the others being: John Knowles (guitarist), Marcel Dadi, Jerry Reed, and Tommy Emmanuel). His most recent project, All Over the Map, is available now at all digital retailers and streaming services.

Steve Wariner Gets “Satisfaction” Performing at Rolling Stones Exhibit in Nashville, Tennessee

(Nashville, Tenn. – April 27, 2018) – Award-winning artist and guitarist, Steve Wariner, was recently asked to perform at the Grand Opening of the Rolling Stones Exhibit, held at the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, Tennessee.  Portraying the unparalleled story of the most influential rock band in history through more than 500 artifacts and memorabilia from over the past 54 years, the opening event for the exhibit featured a guest list in excess of 300 people, including global sponsor DHL and U.S. sponsor Jackson along with the community, business, and music industry leaders. Band member, Ronnie Wood, was the guest of honor and brought with him a custom Zemaitis guitar to place in the exhibit.

Wariner commented about the Stones, saying “To this day, I remember the very first time I heard ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction‘ on the radio. I was hooked the minute I heard that classic guitar riff — man, it was so infectious. I wanted to hear it over and over! This young kid in Indiana could not getenough of it, so I gathered up Coke bottles to get money; then rode my bike up to G.C. Murphy’s store to buy the 45. My radar was perpetually up for Beatles and Stones! Fast forward to today, and I still smile when I think of a call I received from Chet Atkins in the late 80’s asking me to see The Stones with him at Vanderbilt Stadium. I regret that didn’t happen as I was traveling at the time and couldn’t make it, but I still think about how cool that Chet got to go. The mutual respect between The Stones is so great and so nice to see…” 

Twenty albums into his five-decade career, Steve Wariner still has plenty of musical tricks up his sleeve. The now Grand Ole Opry member was discovered by the legendary Dottie West at just 17 years old as he played a set in an Indiana club. West hired him on the spot to be her bass player, a gig that lasted three years. That opportunity would lead to Wariner being commissioned by his idol Chet Atkins to play bass in his band. It was Atkins that eventually signed Wariner to his first recording contract at RCA in 1977 and produced Wariner’s first recording session at the historic RCA Studio B.  Since that day, Wariner has become a modern-day multi-genre icon earning fourteen #1 hits, over 30 Top 10 hits, three Gold albums, four GRAMMY Awards, three CMA Awards, one ACM Award, a Christian Country Music Association Award, a TNN/Music City News Award and 15 BMI Million-Air Awards.

Nashville, TN – New York-born, South Carolina-raised songstress, Haley Mae Campbell has released her new EP, Lovers Lotterywhich is now available on all streaming platforms and digital retailers.

The 6-song collection, which she co-produced and is a live band recording, features Campbell’s current single “Oughta Be” and previous iTunes Top 5 country pre-order single “Lose My Number.” It displays her youthful, exciting energy that has created a buzz on Music Row, while also reflecting her growth as an artist.

Lovers Lottery, which debuted in the Top 100 of the iTunes Country chart and was previously at #22 on the Pre-Order chart, has already garnered great excitement, due to the popularity of “Oughta Be,” which was released onMarch 23 and currently has in excess of 65,000 plays on Spotify.  Additionally, “Lose My Number” has an astounding number of plays on Spotify at just over 341,000.

Campbell has written or co-written all songs on the EP and incorporates her past and present life experiences in her music. She likes to think of it as turning emotions into lyrics. “Having the opportunity to write or co-write every song on this EP is so special to me, and always has been, but the ability to co-produce this new music allowed me to create my ideal blend of country, rock, and pop influences. These songs tell the story of who I have become over the last two years, and I’m so excited to share them with the world,” she explains.

What sets Campbell apart from other young artists is that she takes the DIY approach, “I manage myself and I have built my fan base from the ground up on my own. I develop my own content, write my own music, I co-produced the EP and I am very hands-on with everything involving my music.”

Campbell, a multi-instrumentalist who includes guitar, violin, and piano among her talents, began performing on the streets of Charleston when she was only 13 years old. Her original music is a hybrid of city slicker sass and small-town sensibilities, mixing rock-style vocals with a country-style twang. She uses the words  “honest, personal and shimmering” to describe it.

Holloway Road is a country-pop duo from Essex, England, leading the way for the genre on the UK livecircuit; having enjoyed extensive radio support and national press coverage, more streams than any other independent UK country duo, and opening for likes of The Shires, Lindsay Ell and more as well as numerous major festival appearances including Country to Country and the first Country Music Week in London. Coverage to date has included Vice, Country Music Magazine and The Daily Mail (“an impressive set for a huge mob of fans…”), and with growing support from fans worldwide, success in a growing international country scene is increasingly becoming part of the Holloway Road story. The band recently completed their first UK headline tour, documented in the video for recent single ‘Under Cover’, and they are due to return to Nashville in April 2018. https://www.hollowayroadmusic.com/

American Young is comprised of songwriter/musician, Kristy Osmunson, and songwriter/producer, Jon Stone, who are complete opposites when it comes to personality, but come together to create hauntingly beautiful music stemmed solely from their own personal experiences. Both are established songwriters in their own right and wrote 11 out of the 12 tracks on their current debut album, AY, that was released in August 2016. They explicitly state that they will only pen lyrics that touch them on an emotional level such as “God Sends a Train,” which speaks of the devastation Kristy endured when her mother was hit by a train but lived and eventually walked again, “Be Here,” which pleads for a moment of peace without the distractions of today’s world, and “Something to You,” which Kristy fought back tears to record in the studio. Kristy Osmunson, born and raised in Idaho, grew up playing the violin. She went from playing at honky-tonks to co-founding the electrifying fiddle-duo Bomshel and writing the Joey + Rory hit “Cheater, Cheater,” well on her way as a solo artist before crossing paths with Stone. Jon Stone, originally from Oregon, is also country born and bred, for a while even working as a bull rider, before he was a solo act turned successful producer/songwriter including Kenny Chesney’s “Seven Days,” Blake Shelton’s “Kiss My Country Ass,” and Rascal Flatts’ “Me and My Gang.” http://www.americanyoung.com.

Kate Ellis is an Americana singer-songwriter, who was born in Louisiana, grew up in New York and is now based in London, England. Kate’s southern country-folk roots come from her father, an important early musical influence who once played the guitar with Hank Williams on the famous Louisiana Hayride, where Elvis and Johnny Cash started out. Kate’s emotional and seductive vocals take you into a world of private beauty, reflection and feelings; the music is always intimate and evocative – you listen and want to be there. A journalist for the Observer described “hauntingly beautiful songs”, while No Depression described her debut album ‘Carve Me Out’ as “an album of great warmth and feeling that just makes you press repeat. Definitely worthy of recognition.” http://kateellis.com.

The new Nashville Meets London monthly residency is co-produced by Peter Conway Management and Nashville-based agency, The AristoMedia Group in collaboration with PizzaExpress Live. U.K. based radio DJ Baylen Leonard is the Head Artistic Programmer.
