PISTOL ANNIES “STOP DROP AND ROLL ONE” WITH LATEST RELEASE FROM INTERSTATE GOSPEL

Country supertrio PISTOL ANNIES have released “Stop Drop and Roll One” off their anxiously-awaited third album INTERSTATE GOSPEL, releasing Nov. 2 on RCA Records Nashville.

Penned by the group’s Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe, and Angaleena Presley, “Stop Drop and Roll One” came after a particularly fruitful night of songwriting. “We’d just finished a song out at the farm, and Miranda said, ‘Girls, we’re on fire I think…,” and then she said, ‘So stop, drop and roll one!’” explained Monroe.

The upcoming 14-track album showcases the group’s stunning harmonies. Moving from celebratory anthems, classic country storytelling and vibey swagger, the Grammy-nominated trio are back and sounding Annie-er than ever.

Fans who pre-order the album at any digital retailer will instantly receive “Stop Drop and Roll One,” as well as previously-released songs including “more irreverent than earnest” (NPR) “Interstate Gospel”; “simultaneously funny and crushingly sad” (Rolling Stone) “Best Years of My Life”; and “ecstatic post-divorce declaration of independence” (People) “Got My Name Changed Back.” All four records are also available on all streaming platforms.

Pistol Annies will play Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium on Oct. 25 and NYC’s intimate venue The Town Hall on Nov. 2, both of which sold out in minutes. The trio will round out the their album release shows at LA’s breakout downtown concert hall The Novo on Nov. 7. These shows are the Annies’ way of inviting their fans into their living room to hang, talk, laugh and commiserate about real life while singing their own kind of country music. They will also perform at the 2018 CMT Artists of the Year ceremony on Oct. 17.

Arista Nashville Artist Carlton Anderson Has Home-Field Advantage When He Performs the National Anthem Sunday, Oct. 14 when the Buffalo Bills Face the Houston Texans at NRG Stadium

Full-circle moments are becoming commonplace for Arista Nashville singer/songwriter Carlton Anderson. First he records an acoustic cover of his current and climbing single “Drop Everything” at the Nashville honky-tonk where he caught the attention of the music industry, and now he returns to his hometown to sing the national anthem for the Houston Texans.

And there is a twist. Anderson was a high school junior when he was kicked out of the choir for skipping an event to go see the Texans’ Battle Red Day game with his dad. Now he’ll be center field at NRG Stadium singing the anthem at the Battle Red Day game between the Texans and the Buffalo Bills. The Texans will be wearing red jerseys for the matchup and Anderson will be encouraging fans to wear red, too.

Kickoff is set for noon/CT and the game will be broadcast on CBS.

Anderson grew up in Cypress, Texas playing football and music with equal abandon. After high school, he started performing in clubs and dancehalls in the area, but he had his heart set on Nashville. With financial support from his grandparents and the blessing of his blue-collar family, Anderson moved to Music City where he was the first to graduate college. To pay the bills he found regular work, a tip jar, and a devoted following of fans and industry tastemakers at Swingin’ Doors, a honky-tonk off Broadway.

His tenacity, hard work, and talent landed him a deal with Arista Nashville and the release of his debut song, “Drop Everything,” which was co-written by Rhett Akins, Matt Dragstrem, and Ashley Gorley. And like Anderson, the single is about taking chances, going after what you want, and having the juice to back it up.

Anderson is gaining a reputation for his steadfast belief in authenticity before trends. Billboard opined, that his debut “matches a masculine, southern voice with an anthemic chorus, a catchy melody, a swag lyric and a tight, retro-fit production.” And Taste of Country summed it up writing that “Drop Everything” is “reminiscent of a lot of things, but not a copycat of any.”

Carlton Anderson’s “Drop Everything” is available now to stream and download HERE

MITCHELL TENPENNY WILL TELL FANS ALL HIS SECRETS ON DEBUT ALBUM THIS DECEMBER

MITCHELL TENPENNY WILL TELL FANS ALL HIS SECRETS ON DEBUT ALBUM THIS DECEMBER

“Telling All My Secrets” Available December 14 on Riser House/Columbia Nashville

Nashville native Mitchell Tenpenny burst onto the scene earlier this year, as Billboard predicted, when his RIAA-certified Gold single, “Drunk Me” hit airwaves across the country. The breakthrough song has earned more than 77 million on-demand streams tracking 3 million a week, and has surpassed 500,000 units of downloads in the U.S. Now, the Riser House/Columbia Nashville artist is ready to formally introduce himself to fans with his debut album, Telling All My Secrets, available everywhere Friday, Dec. 14, 2018.

“The secret is out,” Tenpenny shared directly with fans yesterday. “So thankful to finally share what I’ve been working on with y’all.” The title track “Telling All My Secrets” is available now with pre-order HERE.

Growing up on Music Row under the watchful eye of his grandmother, industry veteran and first female CEO of Sony/ATV Music Publishing, Donna Hilley, Tenpenny is no stranger to the Music Row houses where he crafted his major label debut album. The soulful vocalist wrote 56 songs in preparation for the album narrowing it down to 11 strong tracks that tell his story including Top 15 single “Drunk Me,” and fan favorite “Alcohol You Later” and exclusively to digital and vinyl the polarizing track “Bitches.”  The tracks were featured on Tenpenny’s self-titled EP, which has garnered more than 91 million on-demand audio and video streams.

“I’m proud of the success of a track like ‘Bitches.’ It is always a favorite at our shows but for a new listener I understand it could be a bit divisive. The song isn’t about girls or guys, it is about cheaters and liars and haters and bullies. I hate bullies and I hate people that pick on others.” says Tenpenny of the song. “Sometimes there is only one word for a certain emotion. In this case it was bitch. I’m excited to ‘share all my secrets’ on this album so fans get the full picture of what I’m about.”

TIM MCGRAW RELEASES TWO NEW SONGS FIRST SOLO MUSIC IN OVER TWO YEARS

Listen Here

Grammy Award winning music superstar Tim McGraw released two new tracks today, the single, “NEON CHURCH” and an additional track “Thought About You,” which are available to stream and download now.  This marks his first new music for Columbia Nashville/McGraw Music.  “NEON CHURCH” has been shipped to radio for immediate airplay.  McGraw has indicated both songs are part of an upcoming 2019 album project.

“I love that there are no rules anymore and I can give fans more music at once. I really felt that both these songs were ready to be heard and will absolutely give a sense of where I’m going with my next project.  They’re meaningful to me and show the diversity of what I’ve been working on musically,” said McGraw who has most recently spent two years touring with his wife, Grammy Award winning artist, Faith Hill on the blockbuster Soul2Soul Tour in support of their first-ever album together, The Rest Of Our Life.

The lead radio single “NEON CHURCH” was written by Ben Goldsmith, Ben Stennis and Ross Ellis.  From the opening line of “I need Jesus or I need whiskey” listeners will immediately get a sense of a classic country music theme made relevant to 2018.  “There’s not a misplaced word in Neon Church,” explains McGraw. The second track “Thought About You” was written by Lee Thomas Miller, Brad Warren and Brett Warren.  The lyrics take the listener on an emotional journey about lost love and opportunity weaving McGraw’s signature vocals with a powerful message.

McGraw joined forces with long-time collaborator Byron Gallimore to produce both tracks.  “Tim had such a vision for the sound and shape of this new music.  NEON CHURCH is an anthem from the first note and is so unique sonically,” said Gallimore.  Together as co-producers, McGraw and Gallimore have sold over 50 million records
