thumbdown.gif read the lyrics to JA's new song. I had read a pretty scathing review & then I saw Roughstock posted the lyrics... My review=gross! I haven't listened to the song but can't imagine any way these words can be sung to make them palatable. And it makes me SMH to see people sing it's praises!

@Roughstock: The new track from @Jason_Aldean, #BurninItDown is out. Lyric Video and Lyrics Here: http://t.co/12IdmTJwAI #NewMusic

The Unsung Heroism Of Chris Stapleton
http://www.americansongwriter.com/2014/07/...ton-songwriter/

When Chris Stapleton was approached to make a country record for a major label, he said he’d have to think about it.

“It wasn’t something that was even on my brain at that point in time,” he recalls, modestly.

On Music Row, Stapleton is a very familiar face, and not just because of the impressive beard. Over the last few years, he’s written No. 1 hits for Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Darius Rucker and Josh Turner. Plus he’s had more than 170 cuts ranging from Adele to George Strait.

Although he believes he’s more of a music guy than an idea guy when it comes to songwriting, there’s a growl in his voice that makes you pay attention to every word. Thus, a Chris Stapleton solo album seemed like a natural step to Universal A&R executive Brian Wright.

Stapleton and Wright have been friends for about a decade and Stapleton thought their lunch was just a chance to hang out, so the offer caught him by surprise. After talking it over with his wife, Stapleton signed with Mercury Records. Publishers and fellow songwriters cheered, thinking that a legitimately talented artist was about to break through.

Stapleton grew up in Staffordsville, Kentucky; his father and both grandfathers were coal miners. He didn’t sing in the high school choir, preferring sports instead. In 1996, he studied engineering at Nashville’s Vanderbilt University – but it didn’t take. After a year, he moved back to Kentucky, where he continued his education and worked odd jobs around the Morehead area.

Shortly after he quit college in Kentucky, Stapleton moved into a communal living situation. Four people lived in the place, there was no air conditioning and his share of the rent was about $80 a month.

“It’s since been condemned and torn down,” Stapleton says. “But we played bluegrass and I really got heavy into it. It was more of a modern bluegrass – Tim O’Brien, Darrell Scott. I loved Tony Rice and New Grass Revival. We listened to John Hartford a bunch. We’d sit around and pick and have a good time every night. That’s where the discovery of that kind of music came from. I didn’t really grow up with that kind of music.”

Through a friend at Morehead State University, Stapleton got in touch with songwriter Steve Leslie, who wanted to help an aspiring songwriter from that area. Stapleton submitted a few songs and Leslie heard potential. After three months of making trips back and forth from Nashville, Stapleton returned to Music City with two months of living expenses as a gift from an encouraging uncle.

“I moved to town with a chair, a sleeping bag, a sack full of clothes, a recorder and my guitar,” Stapleton says. “I didn’t want a cell phone. I didn’t want someone to be able to get a hold of me, or know where I was, at any point in time. I wanted to be able to throw all my stuff in my car and leave.”

The move paid off. Within the week, Stapleton signed a publishing deal. Rising to the occasion, he started writing two or three songs a day.

Stapleton’s bluegrass education served him well as a co-founder of The SteelDrivers, a Grammy-nominated band that released their debut album in 2008. With gritty vocals and a habit of killing off characters, Stapleton served as one of the band’s lead singers and principal songwriters.

After two albums, Stapleton left The SteelDrivers and briefly played in a loud garage band called The Jompson Brothers. Now he’s focused on the country album, which hasn’t come out yet.

As if he’s setting up a joke, Stapleton remembers label head Luke Lewis’ response to the project: “I love it, but I’ve got to tell you, I’m not going to be here next week.”

Following a merger of Universal and EMI’s labels in Nashville, Stapleton was sent back to the studio to record additional material. Last July, he sent out his first single, “What Are You Listening To.” He made the rounds at country radio, meeting programmers and eating steak dinners. But despite positive notices, the thoughtful mid-tempo song failed to crack the Top 40. There was no follow-up, although he remains on the label’s roster.

“It did what it did, and here we are,” Stapleton says. Diplomatically, he chalks up his current situation as downtime, then adds, “We’re still working on it and figuring out a plan. I’m still writing and making music, and writing for other people. It’s all one pot to me. When the right door of opportunity opens, we’ll walk through that.”




I really liked What Are You Listening To... probably would not have ever heard it if I had not been listening to KRTY!

Maddie and Tae's new song "Girl in a Country Song" is a spoof/protest on bro country. Their new video is a hoot! Here's the link to the video:

http://www.npr.org/blogs/therecord/2014/07...-a-country-song

From the npr blog post:

"The video (which we're premiering here today) amuses not only because the male actors nail the ridiculousness of what country videos currently ask of women, but because Maddie and Tae react with such verve and charm. Shots recreating the song's composition show ; with phrases like "sugar shaker" and "money maker," it's relevant to the whole history of popular music, and of women reclaiming the perspective from men.

Now that the media's paying attention, Maddie and Tae are being careful to note that they're not haters of the male acts their song skewers. Like most young artists seeking mainstream success today, they keep their protest fairly benign. But the message of "Girl in a Country Song" and its video can't be misconstrued. Stereotypes are ridiculous. It's time to slide away from them."

I LOVE this video!!!!!!!!!!! When you see guys treated like the way women are in videos it show how degrading and stupid the bro country videos are. Kudos to these women for stepping up and calling them all out. thumbsup.gif

This is awesome. Now if it actually becomes a bit hit that'll be even better. I think too many egos of TBTP in the industry and radio will be bruised...they are so "sensitive" you know...lol! I expect this to be more of a "talk about song" rather than a top 20 song. I would love to be wrong though!

Cute video. One comment, however:

Maddie and Tae's actual outfits and hair, etc. for the video are kind of cliches, too. Typical costumes/styles....but I'm not sure they realized they were kind of perpetuating the stereotypes.

Just listened to Jason Aldean's new song. Bad Country song but good Pop song! This is something more of the lines of Usher or Justin Timberlake. It could be a crossover hit and that is what they were going for. I'm just glad is wasn't another song about tailgates in the woods as the title suggested it could have been.

I don't know how well the song will do on radio but I'm guessing the video will be popular.

I just heard the new Jake Owen song called What We Ain't Got on my country station. Great song. I prefer Jake singing these types of songs.

If you want, take a listen.

Was looking at Gary Allan's schedule last night. Remember the article where UMG had placed management to handle Scotty's and Gary's careers? I can't remember the name or details (Some-timers). But Gary is headed to Australia for a couple of weeks!

Sep 25 Enmore Theatre Sydney, Australia
Sep 27 CMC Rocks North Townsville Qld, Australia
Sep 28 Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, Brisbane, Australia
Oct 01 Palais Theatre Melbourne, Australia
Oct 03 Deni Ute Muster Deniliquin, Australia

Wonder if Scotty's big news for next year might be something like this?! Listen up, Sonya, for any rumblings. haha.gif

This is similiar to what I posted yesterday about CMC Rocks the Hunter held in March each year. CMC is our pay television Country music channel and due to the success of the 3 day event they decided to cater for the North Queensland fans and hold a 1 day event in Townsville in Sept/Oct. Last year Alan Jackson headlined and performed in other shows down the east coast.

I did find out today though that this years event has been moved from the outdoor venue in Townsville (crowd capacity of 25 000) to an indoor one at the Townsville Entertainment Centre (crowd capacity of 8000) due to poor ticket sales.

Obviously Australian fans don't regard Gary Allan as a headlining act!
