MIRANDA LAMBERT COMES ROARING BACK TO COUNTRY RADIO WITH NEW SINGLE “IT ALL COMES OUT IN THE WASH”

GRAMMY Award-winning superstar Miranda Lambert is thundering back to country radio with her brand new single “It All Comes Out in the Wash,” which premiered this morning across radio stations nationwide – Lambert’s first taste of new solo music in nearly three years. 

“When we were little, our moms would say ‘let’s not worry about a stain.’ Everyone goes through times in life that are difficult and has moments that they wish would pass,” said Lambert, who co-wrote the track alongside The Love Junkies (Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna, Liz Rose). “This song is a mix of scenarios that we have all either been a part of or have seen, and is a fun reminder that hard times do eventually pass.”

Responding to deafening demand, Lambert surprised fans by also releasing “Locomotive,” which she describes as a “total country punk-rock” track written alongside Ashley Monroe and K.S. Rhodes. She debuted the “scorching” (Rolling Stone) song at CMA Fest in June. 

“It All Comes Out in The Wash” and “Locomotive” are both available now on all streaming platforms and digital retailers.

Lambert will hit the road for the Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour this fall, with special guests Maren Morris and Elle King, as well as Pistol Annies, Tenille Townes, Ashley McBryde and Caylee Hammack on various dates (details below). Tickets are on sale now.

LUKE COMBS JOINS THE GRAND OLE OPRY

Luke Combs was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry family Tuesday night by Opry members Joe Diffie and Vince Gill in front of a sold-out Opry crowd. Combs grew up on Diffie’s hits like “Pick Up Man” and “John Deere Green,” and the first concert he ever attended was Gill’s. After Combs performed his No. 1 smashes “When It Rains It Pours” and “Beer Never Broke My Heart,” Diffie and Gill joined him on stage, also flanked by Opry members The Gatlin Brothers, Chris Janson, Dustin Lynch, Craig Morgan, and Mark Wills. 

“This is what dreams are made of right here,” Gill began. Looking to Combs, he added, “If you’ll come here and you’ll invest in the people and this stage, you’ll get back a hundred-fold what you ever give to this place.” 

Presenting Combs with his Opry Member Award, Diffie added, “I remember being asked to be a member of the Opry, and it was like a dream. And it still feels like a dream, even to this day. On behalf of myself and all the Opry members past, present, and future, Luke Combs, you are now officially the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry!” 

Award in hand, Combs said, “Here I am on stage with people I grew up listening to and people who have shaped me as an artist. I just want to say thank you to you guys, thank you to the Grand Ole Opry, and thank you to the fans—without you all there is no country music, there is no Grand Ole Opry. Thank you so much for everything you guys do for making this possible for guys like us on this stage. I will never forget tonight!” 

The hit-maker then rounded out his Opry induction set with his first song as an Opry member, “This One’s For You.” 

Backstage, Opry General Manager Sally Williams shared, “Luke Combs’ love for the Grand Ole Opry is rivaled only by country music fans’ love of his music and his fellow Opry members’ appreciation both of his artistry and his friendship. Luke and all of us at the Opry have developed an incredible relationship since he made his Opry debut less than three years ago, and we are thrilled that as of tonight he has a musical home for the rest of his career. Welcome, Luke!”

MITCHELL TENPENNY AND SARAH CANNON PARTNER TO SUPPORT PEOPLE FACING CANCER

Mitchell Tenpenny and Sarah Cannon, the Cancer Institute of HCA Healthcare, have announced today a new partnership between the 10Penny Fund and the Sarah Cannon Fund to aid cancer patients and their loved ones through the cancer journey. The efforts of the campaign will focus on music as a source of strength and empowerment addressing the mental and social impact on people fighting cancer.  

“There are a lot of programs that are directly tied to research and aiming to find a cure for this illness, which are critical. In watching so many of my family members go through cancer, it became clear that there was also a significant need for resources that support you through the mental side of fighting cancer,” said Tenpenny. “How do you approach the disease mentally and say ‘I’m going to beat this’? I’ve seen so many success stories when you approach it that way, and wonder how things may have been different if my own family had access to support resources for this aspect of fighting cancer.”

“We are proud to partner with Mitchell to make an impact in the community. He has been in the shoes of so many of our patients and their families and has a powerful story to tell,” said Dee Anna Smith, CEO at Sarah Cannon. “Mitchell is helping to build a movement to help families get through the cancer journey with even more support than ever through the 10Penny Fund, in partnership with the Sarah Cannon Fund.”

Click here to read Tenpenny and Smith discuss the partnership exclusively with the Tennessean.

Tenpenny lost his father to cancer while in college, and has been vocal about how the experience affected him. “Walk Like Him,” a moving track from his debut album, was inspired by his father’s memory and puts to melody the moment he revealed his diagnosis.

Click here to watch Tenpenny share the story behind the song in his own words.

Guided by his experience, Tenpenny began the 10penny Fund in 2018 with a sincere desire to provide inspiration and support to cancer patients beyond traditional medical treatment. Determined to make change, the Fund invests in sustainable and meaningful programs that motivate patients, encourage healing, and build a community of support.

Tenpenny has been an active ambassador for Band Against Cancer, Sarah Cannon’s music-based initiative that unites communities in the fight against cancer, making this partnership the natural evolution to further connect people facing cancer with the resources they need.

MARSHMELLO AND KANE BROWN RELEASE HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED COLLABORATION “ONE THING RIGHT” TODAY

Multi-platinum award-winning artist Kane Brown and producer superstar Marshmello officially release their new single, “One Thing Right,” today.

Written by Brown, Marshmello, Jesse Frasure, Josh Hoge and Matthew McGinn, “One Thing Right” (Joytime Collective/RCA Nashville) is Marshmello’s first collaboration with a country music artist and pairs the international producer with “genre-defying” (Billboard) entertainer entertainer Kane Brown. Having shattered records in their respective musical genres, Marshmello and Brown will bring “One Thing Right” to GMA’s Summer Concert Series on August 30.

Brown spoke about the track late last year with Billboard: “It tells you everything that I’ve done wrong growing up, and it’s saying that the one thing I did get right, was you.” Although Brown originally thought of his wife, the song’s message can reflect a myriad of relationships, such as family and friends.

The two originally connected at the 2018 American Music Awards, where Brown won three awards (Favorite Male Artist – Country, Favorite Album – Country, and Favorite Song – Country for “Heaven”) and Marshmello took home Best Electronic Dance Artist. Initially written by Brown for what would become his No. 1 debuting Billboard 200 album, Experiment, “One Thing Right” ended up being an additional track that Brownsent to Marshmello for consideration.

“Marshmello had reached out to say congratulations while I was at the AMAs,” Brown said. “I sent him the song and he ended up being really passionate about it, and said he wanted to even make it a single, so we ended up working on it together. I am a huge Marshmello fan and think he is an incredible artist in his space, so I am thrilled to be able to get to collaborate with him on this. It’s amazing seeing a song you wrote come to life like that,” added Brown.

With billions of streams and multiple gold and double platinum certifications, Marshmello continues to redefine his space in the music world. In 2019, he played “the first-ever in-game concert” inside of Fortnite, which was noted as “revolutionary for the music industry.” Marshmello currently can be found in Las Vegas for an exclusive two-year engagement at KAOS Dayclub and Nightclub at the Palms Casino Resort. His smash hit single, “Happier” with Bastille, topped the charts around the world, with cumulative streams nearing one billion. Certified double platinum in the U.S., “Happier” held the No. 1 position for three consecutive weeks on Billboard’s BDS and Mediabase/Top 40 Radio Airplay chart.

A three-time AMA winner, Brown continues to “break boundaries” (Associated Press) in the format. Currently nominated for two Teen Choice Awards, he is the first artist in Billboard history to Top all 5 Billboard Country charts. With the Platinum certification of “Heaven,” he became one of only five country acts with multiple 4X Platinum hits (joining Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt and Taylor Swift). His sophomore chart-topping album Experiment debuted No. 1 on both the Billboard 200 and Top Country Albums chart, becoming the only male country artist in more than 24 years to debut at the top of the Billboard  200, and only one of three country artists to top the Billboard 200 chart in all of 2018. Ranked by The New York Times as one of the Top 10 Best Albums of the Year, Experiment is available to stream and download HERE.

SEAFORTH DEBUT NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR “LOVE THAT”

Rising country duo Seaforth have debuted the brand new music video for “Love That,” their debut single via RCA Nashville. 

Watch the colorful clip – directed by Alex Alvga – here.

“We’ve always loved music videos that are a little outside the box or kind of different from the concept of the song and adds another layer of life to it, so that’s what we were going for,” said the duo’s Tom Jordan. 

“This is really our first introduction, so getting those moments of personality in there was key for us,” added Mitch Thompson. “We want people to know we don’t take ourselves too seriously, we’re just fun dudes, and I think we portrayed that pretty well.”

“Love That” is the title track from Seaforth’s debut EP, which they co-produced alongside award-winning producer Dann Huff. Listenhere. The song hit country radio airwaves May 20 and has since been lauded as a “melodic, hook-filled singalong” (Billboard) and “an attractive debut” (MusicRow). The 2019 MusicRow Discovery Artist of the Year nominees are slated for upcoming performances at LakeShake and Faster Horses Festival after making waves as support for Kane Brown, Brett Young, and Mitchell Tenpenny.

RCA Records Nashville Breakout Artist/Songwriter Ryan Hurd Has Perfect Timing with New Song “Her Name Was Summer” Available Today

Fresh off a run of festivals and capacity tour stops, RCA Records Nashville artist/songwriter Ryan Hurd is releasing new music – “Her Name Was Summer” – and making his debut on the Chevy Riverfront Stage during CMA Music Festival on Sunday, June 9 (4:00 PM/CT) in Nashville. Listen HERE.

Written by Hurd with creative collaborator Aaron Eshuis and Mike Walker, “Her Name Was Summer” is the romantic counter punch to Hurd’s current single “To A T,” which continues to climb the country radio charts. Hurd recently released a stripped-down piano version of “To A T,” which is finding an ardent audience. Listen HERE.

And where “To A T” is a big picture relationship, “Her Name Was Summer,” is a smoldering snapshot:
Picture a girl with a smile make you fall too fast/
Yeah, high on a feeling that you know won’t last. 

With career streams exceeding 100 million worldwide, Hurd has a gripping point of view and a growing fan base. “To A T” already hit No. 1 on the SiriusXM The Highway’s Hot 30 Countdown and has caught the attention of entertainment tastemakers including men’s lifestyle playbook Esquire and Maxim.

Hurd’s continued ascension seems obvious. He was named the only country artist on Sirius XM’s all-genre “Future Five” for 2019. He was tapped by AOL as one of their country artists set for a breakout year, Amazon Music’s Best of 2018, and named an Artist to Watch by VEVO, Pandora, CMT, The Huffington Post, and Rolling Stone Country, which lauded him for “generating major buzz” and “making waves.”

The praise is earned. Hurd is one of Nashville’s most multi-dimensional young songwriters. He has had co-pen credits on some of the format’s biggest hits including “Lonely Tonight” (Blake Shelton), “You Look Good” (Lady Antebellum), “Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset” (Luke Bryan), and Lady Antebellum’s latest single, the critically-acclaimed “What If I Never Get Over You.”

Now he’s releasing his own music, including “Michigan For The Winter,” “To A T,” “Diamonds Or Twine,” and “Her Name Was Summer,” available on all digital retailers and streaming platforms ( HERE).

Hurd is headlining his own “To A Tour” with capacity crowds at some of the most respected music rooms in the country and later this fall he will be opening several dates on the Old Dominion “Make It Sweet Tour.”
