The new holiday release follows the original Country Faith Christmas album, which was released in October 2013.  Following its release, the album became the #1 CD Pick in People Country and was featured in Parade magazine as well as many other national publications, including Billboard, Country Weekly and more. Additionally, Country Faith Christmas debuted in the Top 10 on Apple Music’s Top Country Album Chart.

The Country Faith series was originally inspired by the popular books, Country Faith and Country Faith Christmas, written by Nashville-based journalist, Deborah Evans Price. Price is a Country Music Association award-winning author, as well as a freelance writer for Billboard, Sounds Like Nashville, First for Women, Redbook and Woman’s World. Price is the co-founder of Country Faith, LLC where, “Celebrating the Heart and Soul of Country Music,” is her ultimate goal.

“I’m so excited about the release of our two new collections this fall, ‘Country Faith Southern Gospel’ and ‘Country Faith Christmas, Vol. 2’. Evans Price stated. “It’s hard to believe the Christmas album is our eighth release since the series launched in 2013. Each project has been a labor of love. Country Faith Southern Gospel spotlights artists I’ve known and loved for years singing songs that have become beloved classics as well as stellar new offerings like the Oak Ridge Boys,’ “Brand New Star,” which is from their current album 17th Avenue Revival. The new Christmas collection features songs we all know and love like Brenda Lee’s, “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree,” and Carrie Underwood’s, “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” along with talented newcomer Liddy Clark’s beautiful version of “Do You Hear What I Hear,” an exclusive on Country Faith Christmas, Vol. 2. It’s so rewarding to see our brand grow with the addition of these two very special collections.”

Signs Booking Deal with Kosson Talent

The newcomer’s debut track “Let It Be You” is now available through all streaming platforms and digital retailers. The song was co-written by Johnson along with Jennifer Denmark and Briana Tyson and was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer, Guy Eckstine. This is Johnson’s light-hearted and authentic introduction to the Country music scene. “Let It Be You” illustrates the relatable truth of blurred lines in relationships between ‘just friends’ and ‘something more’ (listen here).

“My co-writers and I were discussing how sometimes friends turn into something more and that is how this song came to be. It was so much fun to write about something that is so common yet exciting and risky,” said Johnson about the track.

To coincide with the release, Johnson recently premiered the official music video for “Let It Be You” on Roughhstock.com. Directed by Brian Harstine, the video stars Johnson along with on-screen love interest, Gunnar Kallas and unravels the story of a high school romance (view here).

Following the world premiere, the clip was available to a panel of national, syndicated, closed circuit, Internet and regional outlets.

Johnson Commented, “I am so excited about the release of ‘Let It Be You!’ This track is upbeat, catchy and always puts a smile on my face. I had so much fun filming the music video for this song and I am so happy I get to share it!”

As Johnson begins rehearsals for her upcoming tour dates (soon to be announced) she is also gearing up for the release of her debut self-titled EP set for release Oct. 3, 2018.

About Danielle Johnson: Warsaw, North Carolina native, Danielle Johnson is an 18-year-old singer-songwriter with her sights set on the Country music scene. Delivering her music with a wide range of influences encompassing pop-appeal and rootsy authenticity, Johnson is ready to make her mark. The multi-talented artist has had experience acting in Broadway’s How The Grinch Stole Christmas, performing The National Anthem at NASCAR races including the Charlotte Motor Speedway and the Coca-Cola 600 among other events. Over the course of the last four years, Johnson has spent her time recording and co-writing with artists including Phil Galdston, Jennifer Denmark, Mike Dekle, Dave Brainard, JP Williams, Michael Hunter Ochs, and Keesy Timmer, among others. Danielle Johnson will continue to perform a string of dates in the Nashville area and will embark on a US tour this fall in support of her self-titled EP release.

Ana Cristina Cash Is Ready To Ring in the Holidays with My Christmas Collection Available October 26

Available for Pre-Order October 1

“O Holy Night” Ships to Radio October 15

(Nashville, Tenn.  September 17, 2018) – Singer-songwriter Ana Cristina Cash is preparing for the holidays with My Christmas Collection, a unique compilation featuring eleven all-time favorite Christmas classics and one original song.

The full album will be will be released on Oct. 26 and available for pre-order through all digital retailers on October 1. Upon pre-order purchase, fans will immediately receive the Instant Grat tracks, “O Holy Night” and “Carol of The Bells (God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen),” which will be sent to radio through PlayMPE.  “I am very proud of this record and I hope that people will add it to their personal and family holiday collections,” said Ana Cristina.

My Christmas Collection was produced by John Carter Cash and recorded at the historic Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee. The compilation features everything from a captivating bilingual track, “Silent Night (Noche de Paz)” that showcases Cash’s rich voice, outstanding harmonies and Hispanic American heritage to a heart-warming duet, “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” with John Carter Cash.

“Recording ‘My Christmas Collection’ has been a huge passion project for me. I have always dreamed of creating a traditional Christmas album for as long as I can remember, commented Ana Cristina. “We spent three and a half years working on it at the Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, TN. It was a wonderful experience to have my husband, John Carter Cash, at the helm of the project, producing it. I wanted all of the classic holiday songs to have a timeless and warm feel to them, so we added various elements to the orchestral arrangements such as strings and horns.” She went on to say, “The original song on the album, ‘Santa Claus Is Real’ was a fun and lighthearted co-write for John and me that details Santa’s visit on Christmas Eve. Probably one of the most intricate and detailed recordings of my career is the ‘Carol of the Bells/God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’ track on this album. I am the only person doing the various vocal parts, essentially becoming a one-woman-choir, and we ended up with over 200 of my vocal tracks for the song.”

Ana Cristina Cash was raised in Miami, Florida. Cash, of Cuban descent, is bi-lingual and began a professional career in music at the tender age of six. She quickly became an accomplished champion of the singing competitions on the variety show, “Sabado Gigante.” Cash’s recordings showcase her broad vocal range, from a deep resonating contralto to an amazing soaring soprano, revealing what is known to some as a “whistle register.” Cash signed to Sony Music’s Latin division at the age of 15 and recorded her debut album Ana Cristina in the Spanish language. Cash went on to be the first Hispanic American to perform the “Star Spangled Banner” for a presidential inauguration for President Bush in 2005. In 2016, Cash married music producer, John Carter Cash, and has since been writing and recording the music she was born to sing. Cash’s music perfectly blends her connection with rockabilly and gritty blues, adding in a flavor of country and soul to create her own distinctive sound.

My Christmas Collection Track Listing:

  1. My Christmas Collection
  2. Sleigh Ride
  3. Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree
  4. Carol of the Bells – God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
  5. Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Warner Music Nashville to Host Opening Day Luncheon Featuring a Performance by Blake Shelton at Country Radio Seminar’s 50th Anniversary Event (CRS 2019)

CRS Registration to Increase To $599 on Sept. 19; Register HERE!

(NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Sept. 17, 2018) When you hit the half-century mark, it’s time to celebrate. Country Radio Seminar is ready to mark its 50th Anniversary event with the return of a third luncheon, to be held on the Opening Day of CRS 2019Feb. 13, and hosted by Warner Music Nashville. Country music superstar, Blake Shelton, will headline the luncheon that will kick-off what is expected to be one of the most exciting Country Radio Seminars to date.  More WMN artists for the luncheon will be announced soon.

CRB, Inc.® also announced Blake Shelton has been named the recipient of the CRS 2019 Artist Humanitarian Award and will be honored during the Opening Day luncheon. The CRB Artist Humanitarian Award was created in 1990 by the organization’s board to honor those Country music artists who have exhibited exceptional humanitarian efforts during their career.  Past recipients of the annual award have included Dierks Bentley, Lady Antebellum, Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts, Tim McGraw, and Faith Hill, Trace Adkins, Randy Owen, Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Brooks & Dunn, Reba McEntire, Vince Gill, Garth Brooks, and Charlie Daniels, among others.

Blake Shelton has demonstrated his dedication to giving back through many charitable initiatives and events.  In May 2013, Blake hosted “Healing In The Heartland,” a benefit concert for those affected by the numerous tornadoes that ravaged the country.  The event was broadcast on NBC and more than $6 million dollars was raised for the American Red Cross of Oklahoma.  In September 2016, Blake donated $600,000 to the Jimmy Everest Children’s Hospital in Oklahoma City, OK. and in September 2017, he hosted “Hand In Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief,” a multi-city telethon that broadcast on all major television networks.  So far, more than $50 million has been raised for relief efforts for hurricane Harvey and Irma. In Sept. 2017, the Oklahomanative opened his Ole Red Bar & Grill in his hometown of Tishomingo, OK. All proceeds raised from his performance that evening were donated to a local charity in Tishomingo.

“Warner Music Nashville is very excited to kick-off CRS activities with an exciting and diverse line up of our amazing artists,” said WMN Chairman & CEO John Esposito.“I’m proud of Blake being recognized as Humanitarian of the Year.  Over the years, I’ve watched him give back in so many profound ways. He responded immediately to those in need after the devastating tornadoes in Oklahoma in 2013, holding a benefit that was televised nationwide. He continually gives back to his hometown of Tishomingo, to the children’s hospital in Oklahoma City and so much more. But it’s what he does on a daily basis that really sticks out to me.  He will send us an email about something he’s read and say, ‘I want to do this to help this person.’ And I think Blake has helped more stranded motorists than Triple A – but that’s just his character. He’s a humanitarian every day. Congratulations Blake, you earned it!”

(Nashville, Tenn. – September 7, 2018) – Following the release of her debut single, “Little By Little,” Country singer-songwriter Kelsey Lamb is back with the release of her new track “Only For The Summer.” This song breaks new territory for Lamb and illustrates the bittersweet story of a temporary summer romance. Listen to “Only For The Summer” here.

“Only For The Summer,” produced by Bill McDermott, was written by Lamb along with Jean Nolan and Taylor Goyette and recorded at Omni Studios in Nashville, TN. With lyrics that reference waves, blue skies and tan lines “Only For The Summer” is saying ‘goodbye’ to summer and ‘hello’ to fall.

After the success of her debut single “Little By Little” and traveling the country on a radio tour, Lamb wanted to release a follow-up track to transition into cooler weather and show a more emotional side to her music vocally and lyrically.

“I never thought I was going to release this song, but I knew it was special when I wrote it. I was listening to my old demos one day on the road and ‘Only For The Summer’ really hit me emotionally. I decided this song needed to be heard and thought fall was the perfect time to release it. This song takes me back to my roots and the sound I grew up on with an intimate Country storyline and melody,”Says Lamb.

Recently playing Whiskey Jam at Winners Bar & Grill, Lamb has several other upcoming dates in Nashville, TN including:
Saturday, Sept. 8th, 2018 – at The Listening Room (Nashville, TN)

I recall the wind in itself being alive and with a voice… It smelled awake, purposeful and spoke in a resounding tongue I perfectly understood. All was vast, open, dazzling and wondrous. I believe this to be the truth of the world……the MAGIC is inside us all. And though it may be forgotten, it can be remembered once again… It is only up to us to do one single thing, and do it purely…BELIEVE.”
