RaeLynn: Glitter & Grit

newmusicweekly

Two-time ACM New Female Vocalist nominee RaeLynn continues to carve her unique lane in Country music with her gift for storytelling through songwriting, accented by a one-of-a-kind, electric personality. RaeLynn’s EP BAYTOWN – her first since signing to Round Here Records – released in 2020 and has surpassed 65 million streams, adding to her 840 million total career streams. Scoring high-profile features with People, American Songwriter, and Entertainment Tonight, she’s stacking acclaim for “a confident, joyous effort” (Billboard) that’s “equally tender-hearted and fiercely fun” (Tennessean). BAYTOWN follows her widely lauded debut WILDHORSE which arrived at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and was recognized among the best Country albums of 2017
by Rolling Stone, UPROXX and Stereogum. Most recently on Maren Morris’ GIRL: THE WORLD TOUR, she’s also joined Garth Brooks, Keith Urban, FGL, Kane Brown, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton on the road. With both GOLD (“Love Triangle”) and PLATINUM (“God Made Girls”) singles to her name and nearly 2.5 MILLION followers across her engaging online platforms, her star continues to rise after becoming the first Country face to represent the global beauty brand Too Faced and making her acting debut in Hallmark Channel’s A Nashville Christmas Carol. Welcome to our New Music Weekly Fall
Hits Special edition. As we move into the final quarter of 2021 we are setting our sights
even closer to the New Music Awards nominations. Take a good look at the weekly charts
in this issue that will give you an insight as to the artists and bands making huge progress
as we get to the end of a breakthrough year in music.

2021 Radio Hits:

Special Edition

Welcome to our New Music Weekly Special Fall Hits Edition. With the final quarter of the year in full bloom all of the labels

and artists are making their final push for 2021. It’s hard to believe that this year is almost over and that we are ever so near the holiday

season like it or not that time is almost upon us. For the music industry they are all geared up for this time as well and on the hopes

that they can turn 2021 into a profitable year. So far when looking back at last year, the numbers have vastly improved, and it looks

like there may me some time to celebrate as much of the industry has gotten back on its feet.

The major labels have pulled out all the stops via their signature artists to make a solid run to the finish line. From Justin Bieber,

who has had a pretty big year in music, to the likes of the Jonas Brothers, Coldplay, BTS & others, there has been a huge push to pull

the best numbers possible as they wrap up their business for the rest of this year and try to turn their biggest profits to date. They may

not have the banner year that they had hoped for but then again it is far better than 2020 which found the industry in a tailspin.

As the major labels try to break ground during this final quarter, the independent labels and artists have truly had a turnaround

year at that. All you have to do is take a look at our radio charts from mainstream to country to see the artists and bands that

are making huge strides in 2021. Many artists and bands again abandoned the major label machinery in favor of putting out their

own music. Again, with the deals that the majors have been offering, taking your music independently has proven to be a winning

combination.

With this final quarter of the year now well underway, it’s that time once again to look towards the award show season. Our

annual New Music Awards will once again honor artists, bands and record labels via nominations. We will also honor radio stations,

programmers, public relation firms and industry professionals who have had a hand in making 2021 a little extra special. No doubt

it will be a crowded field, but we expect so see a good solid showing of support from the music industry as we move towards that

time.

In the coming weeks we will begin speaking to radio stations, music and program directors about artists and bands that have

had an impact on their own local charts. We will take the first step in finding out what really worked for them this year as we begin

to plot out the nomination schedule. Also coming up in just a few weeks will be our annual open ballot for artists, bands and industry

professionals. The general public, and all of you reading this will have a special hand in helping to choose the New Music Award

nominees. We really encourage your participation in this process as it will make the nomination process run as smoothly as it can.

Always a bit chaotic, it at least opens the process up to our subscribers and allows for the music fans to have a helping hand as well.

The annual New Music Awards will once again feature formats from AC40, Country, Top40 to College giving the opportunity

to shine a solid spotlight on all of the varies music types. After all, NMW provides weekly charts for all of the formats that truly

matter and you will also see some solid crossover activity as well. Many artists this year especially made their music accessible to

multi-formats. The record labels have come to realize that crossing formats brings a much bigger audience and that means a bigger

financial reward for artists and bands on their roster. You can see those artists on our charts in this issue. Country radio especially has

seen a huge move towards the mainstream.

New Music Weekly will continue to once again offer the best “tools of the trade” when it comes to showcasing both the major

and the independent music artists. Many have taken the time to participate in our special advertising program and we can see that by

the special ads in this issue. Our STS tracking & Airplay Access are second to none in helping to service and chart artists from coast

to coast. Let’s have a solid end to 2021.

Justin Bieber keeps breaking hit after

hit at the Top40 format. His new offering in

“Ghost” (Def Jam) keeps his list of monster

hits growing by leaps and bounds and this one is no exception. The pairing of

Drake with Future and Young Thug has turned out to be quite the winner. “Way

2 Sexy” (OVO/300 Ent-Epic-Republic) is pulling in strong numbers at radio and

our music and program directors are all over this one big time. Another pairing

that is rocking the radio world comes from the always interesting Kanye West who

has joined forces with The Weeknd & Lil Baby. Together they are taking it to the

streets with “Hurricane” (Def Jam) and the results so far are “off the charts” so

please join the party.

Halsey is about as hot as they come in the female pop arena. She shows all of

what she has with her latest in “I am not a woman, I’m a God” (Capitol). With a title

like that you just know she means business. Best get on this one quick. Also doing

as well as any band can these days on the radio charts, OneRepublic is showing

everybody how its done as their new “Someday” (Interscope) takes flight. I really

like this one a whole lot. Billie Eilish is thrilled about her career and expresses it

very well in “Happier Than Ever” (Interscope). With a list of hits in her early career

already a mile long, why would you not be happy?

The Weeknd is taking no prisoners and keeping his quest for ruling the charts

alive and well as his new “Take My Breath” (Republic) blasts off like a rocket.

Seems after that big performance at the Super Bowl, this artist is truly at the top of

his game. Lil Nas X is also on fire pushing songs out like hot cakes. “That’s What

I Want” (Columbia) is a breakout hit and his pairing with Jack Harlow in “Industry

Baby” (Columbia) is also already a Top10 at radio. You can’t keep this kid down

for a minute or he’ll hurt you bad.

The new and ever exciting Mercury Messiah are making huge moves at the

format. “Sunlight Surfing” (Dovetail Entertainment) is the jam that everybody is

raving about and for good reason, it’s just that good. Those fun loving Primadonna

Reeds are also pulling in some rather impressive numbers. It’s all due to the single

“Spur Of The Moment” (Cascades) that is helping to keep them at the top of the

pack. Sofia Evangelina is also breaking strong from coast to coast. Her debut single

“Endure” (Crescendo) has already reached #1 on our AC40 Indie chart but it’s also

moving to the top at Top40 as well.

Drake is taking Future & Young Thug along for a musical ride and it all

appears to be working quite well. “Way 2 Sexy” (OVO/300 Ent-Epic-Republic) is

the jam that I’m talking about and what a great mix this is indeed. I would jump on

this right away and power it out. It’s a real red-hot hit! What’s with Walker Hayes?

It’s not so bad that he’s breaking at Country with “Fancy Like” (Monument/RCA),

he now pushing it at Top40 & Hot AC and the formats are loving it big time. All

the Country cats are moving towards mainstream to get bigger and better royalty

checks – can you blame them?

Meg Berry & “Built To Lose” (Farm to Table Sounds) has been proven to

be a solid winner for her. Love the track & so do our music and programmers. Tai

Verdes is also off like a rocket at the format and what a splendid showing for “A-

O-K” (Arista) that is fast becoming a real pop music anthem. Bella Poarch is also

building a very bright future with the single “Build A Bitch” (Warner) that seems

to still be getting lots of play around the USA.

Gramma Rikki has had quiet the run at the format for her “Closer” (OBCD)

single that has done remarkably well. John Journey has taken his new “Everyday

Angels” (Most Likely Music) to great heights as well & he continues to shine bright.

Larry Pascale is living the dream just as his single “Living A Dream” takes off like

a rocket. So many great artists to cover and such little space to actually to it all.

I’ll have more for you next time in this very column as we pull clover to our New

Music Award nominations. It’s that time already to be thinking annual awards and

to put your best foot forward.

Inside AC Radio

by: Larry Weir

Ed Sheeran continues his very red-hot

streak at Hot AC with the single “Shivers”

(Atlantic). It’s the follow-up to his #1 “Bad

Habits” & this one has all the makings of putting him back at #1 and in record

time. Ed seems to be in a real groove these days and there is nothing getting in his

way. Kacey Musgraves would like too but she has her own agenda. The plan is to

take her new single “justified” (MCA Nashville/Interscope) to pop radio, leaving

Country behind for a spell and she just may be on to something. She’s the definition

of “cool” & that’s what pop radio is all about these days. Regardless of her story the

song is really pulling in some rather bold and beautiful numbers, and it appears that

Kacey has taken the Taylor Swift route while the time is just right.

That little Doja Cat is about as hot as they come. “Need To Know” (Kemosabe/

RCA) has all of the kitties cooing and our panel of music and program directors

just can’t seem to get enough. Moving right along side of the little kitty is Olivia

Rodrigo. Her new track “Traitor” (Geffen/Interscope) is really quite something

and the spins tell the tale. Actually at this writing she has three to four tracks on

the charts at the same time and it appears that her wild and crazy plan of multiple

single releases out is just what the doctor ordered.

The new Elton John & Dua Lipa song is getting raves from coast to coast. The

song called Cold Heart (Mercury/Warner-Interscope) got a verbal promotion from

Ryan Seacrest on the Kelly & Ryan (ABC) national talk show when we professed

to having it play over and over again while jogging. How about that for a plug. The

numbers for the song are also staggering so Elton has to be pretty thrilled about being

back on Top40 where he once spent decades. John Mayer has a new one that’s out

and about that many are talking about. “Wild Blue” (Columbia) is the jam and I must

admit that it’s a very strong offering that deserves your immediate attention.

The Script were a pretty big deal not so long ago, but we really haven’t heard

a lot from them as of late. That may be about to change with the release of “I Want

It All” (Legacy Recordings). Hearing them now reminds us of why we liked them

so much in the first place. Andy Grammer is back and that’s always a good thing.

“Damn It Feels Good To Be Me” (S-Curve/Hollywood) is his latest and greatest

and I really think that Andy has a real winner on his hands provided his record

label makes it a big priority. I’m still head over heals for Tai Verdes and “A-O-K”

(Arista) so what do I really know. I’m still spinning Camila Cabello’s “Don’t Go

Yet” (Syco/Epic) in my room and it makes me cry every time.

Newcomer Sofia Evangelina has found a world of early believers. It’s all

due to her debut single “Endure” (Crescendo) that is really exceptional. Word has

it that a new single is on the horizon that will take her to an even higher level. So

far so good for this emerging new talent. While speaking of talent there is so much

going for Garrett Young that I don’t know here to begin. His current “Your Fool”

(West Coast Collective) is breaking in multiple formats from pop to Country and it

seems that everywhere we turn he is getting support. Garrett is now set for some live

shows and if you get the chance to see him check him out as his live performances

are quite a treat to the eyes and ears.

Chesney Claire is on the move at radio with her new fast moving single

“Distracted” (Zeiss). She’s also so talented and her songwriting is getting better

with each tune released. Chris Milo has a good thing gong as his “Memories”

(Milo Music) single takes flight. Kailee Spark is also “on fire” with her

amazing “Universe At Your Fingertips” (Kukuau Studio). Shytown are taking

the pop world by storm as their debut “Survive” (Ni Music Group) moves

past the rest. Tommy Rice and Patricia Barrett are making bold moves with

“You Are My Life...”(Tommy Rice Music) that is nothing short of brilliant &

Toni Land has reached greater heights with her “Hip Hip Hurray” (Stagework Music)

that everybody raves about. I hope to have more for you next time right here.

celebrate someone’s birthday and the restaurant’s staff substituted

a restaurant’s unique hand clapping “happy birthday”

song for the traditional song? Did you give any thought as

to why they didn’t use the traditional song?

John & Yoko Ono Lennon’s

Global Anthem, “Imagine,”

Certified Triple Platinum

As John & Yoko Ono Lennon’s paean for peace,

“Imagine,” continues to celebrate its 50th anniversary,

the iconic song has just been certified triple platinum

by the RIAA for selling 3 million units in the U.S. The

achievement comes on the eve of what would have been

John’s 81st birthday this Saturday, October 9th. “John

and I were both artists and we were living together, so

we inspired each other. The song ‘Imagine’ embodied

what we believed together at the time. John and I met

– he comes from the West and I come from the East – and

still we are together. We have this oneness and ‘the whole

world would eventually become one’ is the sense that we

will all be very happy together. All these instructions are

for people for how to spend eternity, because we have lots

of time.”– Yoko Ono Lennon. “We are thrilled to present

this award to Yoko for John & Yoko Ono Lennon’s

‘Imagine.’ One of the most important and universally

recognized songs in music, this historic achievement

coincides as we celebrate the song and album’s 50th

anniversary,” said Bruce Resnikoff, President & CEO of

UMe. “‘Imagine’ remains a timeless global anthem, and

John & Yoko’s message of peace is just as relevant today

as when it was first written.” In honor of Imagine’s golden

anniversary and John Lennon’s birthday, Yoko Ono

Lennon and the John Lennon Estate are celebrating the

legendary songwriter, musician, and peace activist with

a variety of events and releases throughout the weekend.

Jake Owen Drops Sun-Soaked Anthem

“Drunk On A Boat”

Big Loud Records’ MULTI-PLATINUM entertainer

Jake Owen drops anchor on a good time with his new track

“Drunk On A Boat,” letting worries float away today. Out

now as a choose-happiness themed anthem, it’s all about

riding the waves of a carefree day on the water – instead

of a dull day back on land. Featuring a breezy melody

and a weekend-anytime singalong, it’s the perfect vessel

for Owen’s easy-going Country style. “When I heard

this song for the first time, I knew it was right on-brand

for me,” says Owen. “I wanted to release ’Drunk On A

Boat’ as the sun sets on the season and give everyone

a feel-good summer memory as we head into fall.”

“Drunk On A Boat” was written by Rodney Clawson,

Jake Mitchell and David Lee Murphy, and produced by

Joey Moi. The new track follows last month’s release of

Owen’s current single, “Best Thing Since Backroads,”

which is nearing Top 20 at Country radio after becoming

the #1 most-added week upon its arrival. Both of the

new songs mark a new chapter from the Florida-born hitmaker,

after 2019’s extremely successful GREETINGS

FROM…JAKE album. That project featured three charttoppers

(“I Was Jack (You Were Diane),” “Homemade,”

“Made for You”) and a PLATINUM-certified smash

(“Down to the Honkytonk”) – and just crossed ONE

BILLION on-demand streams in August. Owen will

finish out the month with an October 30 appearance at

the star-studded iHeartCountry Festival in Austin, Texas.

For multi-Platinum entertainer Chase Rice,

like so many people, the past year was a period

of honest introspection as an unexpected break

from touring led him to reflect on his decadeplus

musical journey to date. The results of such

vulnerable and personal reflection are on full

display with brand-new single “If I Were Rock

& Roll,” produced by Jay Joyce and available

everywhere now, as Rice kicks off the next phase

of his songwriting-driven career with the first

major release he’s written completely independently.

“As I sat down to write this song at my

dining room table, with nothing but a guitar

and the line ‘If I Were Jesus,’ inspired by Bruce

Springsteen’s ‘If I Was the Priest,’ I wanted to

incorporate all of the things that have been such

a huge influence in my life into the lyrics,” notes

Rice. “From Earnhardt to my military buddies,

to Johnny Cash, to my grandpa… these are all

people and memories who have shaped the man

I am. It’s a very personal, real song to me and

yet how the song ends, with the one that got

away, makes it one that I think a lot of people

will relate to.”

to Def Leppard. They also graced the stage at Mother of

All Rock Festival as the only Mexican band and opened

two sold-out Monterrey shows for The Killers and for

Def Leppard in Mexico City and Guadalajara. Produced

by the legendary David Beneath (Paramore, Bring Me

The Horizon, Breaking Benjamin), MAYDAY is a

white-knuckle audio ride that dives hard into topics that

affect today’s younger generation from love, technology,

dealing with generation gaps, anxiety, and the intense

pressure to suppress emotions. “We grew a lot by

working with David,” said Ale. “He really helped us

refine the sound. We’ve matured, but our love for energy

is still there!” The Warning moved into high gear earlier

this year with the release of a stream of singles off of

their album. They quickly racked up a million streams

upon the release of “CHOKE,” the album’s first single.

Meanwhile, “EVOLVE,” the second single, muses on

the ever-present obsession with evolving and examines

its dehumanizing impact. Recorded in the band’s native

Spanish, “MARTIRIO” dives into the strength derived

from acceptance of suffering. The EP kicks off with the

fiery “DISCIPLE,” showcasing a band that has evolved

and mastered the art of building tension, deftly moving

through stunning signature changes, and exploding

into compelling choruses that demand the listener to

shout-sing along. The album also features the punktinged

“ANIMOSITY,” which sends up a clear warning

about feelings masked but not buried as well as “Z,” a

rebellious song about Generation Z, youth, vices, virtues

and the age in which we currently live. “We are so

proud to present the first half of our album through the

MAYDAY EP,” said the band. “It’s a blend of six wellbalanced

songs that touch topics close to our personal

experiences – something that hasn’t been the case in

our previous works – brought together with newfound

musical ways of expressing them!” The Warning has

drawn wide acclaim from media including Loudwire,

Rolling Stone and Rolling Stone Mexico, and Billboard

Argentina. In addition, Pau was called out by Olivia

Rodrigo and WILLOW for her stunning drum covers of

their songs “brutal” and “transparentsoul” on TikTok.

Blondie to Release Yuletide Throwdown

As the summer months come to a close, one can’t

help but look ahead and begin daydreaming about the

holidays to come. And this year, legendary New York

rock band Blondie are bringing a little more fun to the

holiday season with the release of their EP: Yuletide

Throwdown. The 3-track EP, released digitally today,

October 8th, and on 12” limited edition vinyl in both

magenta and black, on November 5th (via UMe-Capitol/

Numero Group) features the ultra-rare 80’s Christmasinspired

track “Yuletide Throwdown,” co-written

and performed with Fab 5 Freddy, along with a new,

exclusive remix of the song by Cut Chemist. The ultrarare

1981 holiday flexi-disc, now being reissued for the

first time on 180gram vinyl, was originally given away

by the U.K. magazine Flexipop and then rediscovered as

the band was researching and reviewing material from

their personal archive for their forthcoming box set,

to be released in August of 2022 If it sounds familiar,

here’s why: the track was actually the original recording

for what would later become one of Blondie’s biggest

hits, “Rapture.” After shelving this version because the

tempo was recorded too slowly (it was later recut into

what became the global hit song), Chris Stein decided to

go back into the studio a year later with the original track

to record Debbie Harry and Freddy’s “Throwdown”

vocals for this cheeky, holiday masterpiece. “It has

been an impossible amount of time since I believed in

Santa Claus, but I could very well believe again if he

was Freddy Brathwaite!! Some of my best times have

been making music with Chris Stein and Freddy B,”

notes Debbie Harry, with Chris Stein adding: “Freddy

has done as much as any multi-platinum selling Hip-Hop

star to promote rap culture.” Fab 5 Freddy expands: “In

the beginning of my journey into pop culture, Chris &

Debbie were among the first to take me and my ideas

about hip hop culture seriously and were like mentors to

me shining a light along the road and assisting my quest.

I’m happy after all this time the world can now hear this

fun holiday tune we did way back then! Flash forward

40 years - as the band sought to re-release the original

recording, they engaged DJ and producer Cut Chemist

(also known for his previous work as a member of both

Ozmalti and Jurassic 5) to put his spin on the track, thus

rounding out the Yuletide Throwdown EP project Cut

Chemist (Lucas MacFadden) explains: “Blondie and

Fab 5 Freddy are two giants in their respective cultures.

“Yuletide Throwdown” is a perfect example of those

worlds coming together. Chris Stein’s music and Debbie

trading raps with Fab created something entirely new

Country rocker and bearded businessman Tim Montana today shares that the second

annual Tim Montana & Friends American Thread Sporting Clays Shoot held this week

raised $264,867 for two charities that benefit our military (Special Ops Xcursions and

the Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation). Doubling the amount raised in its first

year (and then some), the event brought together a staggering number of supporters

to brave the rain and compete on the sporting clays course.

Natalie Hemby’s astounding career has been decades in the making

— she has earned two GRAMMY Awards, written eight No. 1

singles, become a founding member of standout female supergroup

The Highwomen alongside Brandi Carlile, Maren Morris and

Amanda Shires, and her incomparable songwriting has caught the

attention of artists like Sheryl Crow, Ed Sheeran, Alicia Keys, Lady

Gaga, Miranda Lambert and many others who have recorded her

songs. The culmination of her unparalleled journey is reflected on

her brilliant sophomore record ‘Pins and Needles’

Black Sheep is proud to welcome Janelle Arthur to their roster. The American Idol

finalist and female vocal powerhouse recently premiered her poignant new video for

her emotional self-penned song “Hand Me Downs” (featuring Dolly Parton). Arthur’s

introduction to performing professionally began at the age of eight in Dollywood’s production

of “Paradise Road,” where she portrayed a young Parton. Throughout the years

of touring, Janelle has traveled the U.S. and abroad performing thousands of shows

including multiple appearances on country music’s most hallowed stage, The Grand

Ole Opry. “The first time I heard Janelle’s duet ‘Hand Me Downs’ I knew she had a

talent like no one I have ever heard. When I had the opportunity to see her perform

live that just solidified my belief in her gift. Janelle is a superstar and we are so blessed

to be sharing this journey with her,” says Susan Hobbs, CEO/ Black Sheep.

After two decades as one of Texas Country’s definitive bands

– a mantle they have carried proudly to a massive, nationwide

audience – Randy Rogers Band truly know what the phrase

“time flies when you’re having fun” means. And with their

new single, “Picture Frames,” they capture the portrait of a

lifetime in love. Written by Rogers with Drew Kennedy with

the well-worn feel of heirloom anthem, the instant-classic

Country-rocker is full of nostalgia and cherished memories,

all about true love hanging on a hallway wall. Both the song

and its heartfelt lyric video speak to RRB’s 20 years together

as a band, and in the process, serve as the ideal beginning to

sounding. It was an honor to work on this project as I

have been a fan of their work for my entire life. The new

2021 mix of the original track, which appears on the EP,

was produced by 4x Grammy® winner Steve Rosenthal

and mixed from the original analog tapes by Grammy®

winner Tom Camuso on his vintage Neve console at

Sam Outlaw Focuses on

Positive Side of Life in “Sun Ain’t Set”

Sam Outlaw’s new wave-inspired record ‘Popular

Mechanics’ is due on November 12th, and today (10.8),

he’s sharing another preview of what to expect from the

ambitious project with the release of “Sun Ain’t Set.” Written

solely by Outlaw and produced by Cheyenne Medders, the

song is a prime example of Outlaw’s creative evolution. A

folk-rooted tune with an aesthetic makeover, the track pairs

fretless bass and subtle synths with an effortless, Lauperinspired

hook that feels just as fresh as it is nostalgic. “This

story is all about choice -- specifically, that each one of

us can decide to linger in the pain of the past, or process

it, learn from it, and step out into the new day,” Outlaw

explains. “The lyrics took on new meaning during the

seemingly endless ‘Groundhog Day’ effect of the COVID

lockdown, and after reworking the track with Cheyenne

[Medders], we ended up with a pop song that perfectly fits

into the album’s ecosystem, while also staying true to my

voice. “Sun Ain’t Set” is one of seven tracks written solely

by the LA-turned-Nashville resident on his forthcoming

album ‘Popular Mechanics,’ out Nov. 12th and available for

pre-order today (10.8). The song follows in the footsteps of

“For The Rest of Our Lives,” the project’s romantic debut.

Amanda Cooksey Released Retro

Music Video for Her Latest Breakup

Bop “Wish You Were Here”

Keeping with her signature 90’s throwback vibe,

Amanda Cooksey is releasing a captivating music video for

her latest single “Wish You Were Here.” From the TV set

fish tank in the opening scene, to the oversized set of dice,

this video is as entertaining visually as the track is musically.

Directed by Kolby Copeland, viewers experience a day-inthe-life

of someone just trying to make it through a breakup

without leaving the house. However, if you lived in this

house, why would you ever leave? “I think the ‘Wish You

Were Here’ video was one of the most fun music videos

I have ever shot. Kolby has directed a few of my other

videos, and he always does such a great job capturing my

vision. For this video, I wanted to create something fun

that felt like the vibe of the song, and I think the location

we shot at definitely helped bring that feel to life!” says

Amanda Cooksey. Her willingness to take risks and carve

out new areas of artistry places Amanda into a special

category, among many of her genre-bending inspirations

like Taylor Swift, Julia Michaels and Walker Hayes. She

has seen success with recent releases, including “What’s

His Name” and “In Denial,” both of which have garnished

support from Spotify and will be on her debut concept

album Him. Amanda is excited to unveil the connection

each song has with the release of her album later this month.

Steve Holy’s ‘A Christmas To

Remember’ Due Out Next Week

Steve Holy returns to the studio for the first time in

nearly a decade to release ‘A Christmas To Remember,’

available Fri., Oct. 22 via Thrill Hill Records. Known

for his multi-week No.1 singles “Brand New Girlfriend”

and “Good Morning Beautiful” -- a song released in

2000 that went on to become one of the decade’s most

played songs on country radio -- the Texas native will

ring in the holidays with a 10-track album chock-full of

festive favorites and one yuletide original. “I haven’t

been in the studio in almost 8 years,” says Holy. “And,

I couldn’t be more excited to share new music with

everyone and celebrate my favorite holiday!” Holy

stamps his signature, southern spin on seasonal staples

ranging from Bing Crosby’s poetic “I’ll Be Home for

Christmas” to Elvis Presley’s merry classic “Santa

Claus Is Back In Town” and “Bringing In A Brand New

Year,” a ‘60s swing by Charles Brown. The album’s

title track and sole original, written by Sam Hunter (who

also played guitar on the album) and his father Joe, is

a highlight on the project with its reminder to focus on

the true reason for the season -- spending much-needed

time with loved ones around the holidays -- which is

something that won’t be taken for granted this year, as

many will gather together in holiday celebration for

the first time since 2019. “A lot of thought went into

the way we sequenced this record. Starting with ‘A

Christmas To Remember,’ about spending time with

loved ones and ending with my all-time favorite holiday

song, ‘If Every Day Was Like Christmas’ which is

really an optimist’s prayer, were conscious decisions

to remind all of us what is important this time of year.”

Kylie Minogue Is Back!

With Single “Years & Years“

Pop icon Kylie Minogue releases her brand-new

single “A Second to Midnight”, co-written and recorded

with the brilliant Years & Years. The official video is

also out today - watch here. This is the first single to be

released from the forthcoming album DISCO: Guest List

Edition, which also features new tracks recorded with

disco legend Gloria Gaynor and British pop sensation

Jessie Ware, plus last year’s collaboration with Dua Lipa,

as well as an incredible array of remixes of tracks from the

original album release. The official video for “A Second

to Midnight” is also out today and stars Kylie and Years

and Years. It was directed by long-time Kylie collaborator

Sophie Muller and filmed at London’s historic Collins’

Music Hall. This new version of the album follows the

barnstorming 2020 release of DISCO, Kylie’s eighth UK

No.1 album, which saw her make chart history once more

as the first female artist to have a UK No.1 album in five

consecutive decades. With this brand-new edition Kylie

releases new tracks “A Second to Midnight” (with Years

& Years), “Can’t Stop Writing Songs About You” (with

Gloria Gaynor) and “Kiss of Life” (with Jessie Ware).

These new songs will be featured alongside previously

unreleased remixes plus established favorites including

“Real Groove (Studio 2054 Remix)” with Dua Lipa.

Platinum-selling band Parmalee impacts Country

Natalie Dean brings a soft rock-pop anthem

sound to “More Than This” with TLG Entertainment/INgrooves.

Natalie has mastered well

the cross-over genre production of music writing

many musicians these days are continuing to

develop. No longer placing one’s own creativity

in a box but being able to bend and change

much like life really works today. “More Than

This” can set itself very well in a variety of styles

and sounds and find itself perfectly comfortable

and at home in the indie, soft rock, pop world

of today. “More Than This” is multi-layered

and carries this blend of tones in a subliminal

attitude that is Natalie Dean’s signature style.

“hoppin’ little number that gets up and goes,” and a slap

bass sets the pace for Nashville’s A-Team players to meet

the challenge. The lyrics are as sassy as you’d presume

Andrea Bocelli Announces Annual

Bocelli announced the 2022 In Concert For Valentine’s

tour to celebrate the forthcoming February holiday.

The annual tour dates include five shows scheduled

for Atlanta, Charlotte, Las Vegas, Phoenix and

Sunrise, FL. In Concert For Valentine’s will have

Bocelli returning to the US following his extensive

upcoming 21-city Believe North American Tour,

which begins in October and features performances

at the legendary venues Hollywood Bowl in Los

Angeles and Madison Square Garden in New York

City. For the entire routing, please see dates listed

Broken Bow Records star Dustin Lynch’s got a 12-Point plan in his newest collaboration, “Huntin’ Land

(feat. Riley Green),” available now at all streaming platforms and digital retailers. “‘Huntin’ Land’ is

one of those fun songs that we can listen to and have a laugh at while hanging with our buddies,” shares

Lynch. “I’ve been playing this one out at shows recently, and it’s been cool watching fans react in real

time to it. So pumped Riley [Green] was able to hop on it too. Now we need to get a hunt on the books!”

Following the hunt over his heart, Lynch is biting the bullet and sticking it out – not for the girl, but

for her daddy’s “Huntin’ Land.” Going through hell for a little slice of God’s country, he justifies, “If I

ain’t in the stand / I’ll be holding her hand,” in the banjo-heavy runner produced by Zach Crowell and

penned by Lynch, Andy Albert, Hunter Phelps, and Will Weatherly. That is, at least until December.

From the farm to the woods, Lynch and Green pull the trigger on a day every country boy dreams of in

the adjoining music video. Directed by Matthew Paskert, watch as the avid outdoorsmen get Lynch’s

own real-life farm in tip-top shape for hunting season. Fans can also spot cameo appearances by some

of hunting’s most popular faces like the Drury Outdoors crew, Nate Hosie (HeadHunters TV), Phillip

Culpepper (Realtree Outdoors), and Michael Waddell (Realtree Outdoors).

Manny Blu unleashed “Doin’ Fine,” the first

single off of his upcoming Country Punk EP, today.

This track mixes heavy bass guitar, elevated

drums, and Blu’s powerhouse voice to give it a

punk rock vibe with the lyrical style of country

music storytelling. Written by Stephen Allbritten,

David Brown, and Nathan Dohse, “Doin’

Fine” sets the tone of Blu’s new EP as it embodies

his Country Punk attitude and energy. The single

tells the story of what it feels like to try to make

it in Nashville. It is a song to be embraced by all

dreamers who can relate to the grind, struggle,

and joy that accompany artists’ journeys to the

top of the entertainment industry.

Our pledge is dedicated to great music, artist and bands

which provide themselves with the talents to exploit their soundings to radio

peeps throughout the globe. Where there is good music to be heard, there

is great programming present. Hold strong against those powers

that suppress and expose the true notes which great artistry

stands . . . not reliant upon a frown of ignorance, but

rather the fidelity of what is and what will

be aired to the ears of enjoying fans.

Inside Country Radio

by: Buck McCoy

Sam Hunt is as hot as any country artist on

the planet. He wears it well as he sends the song

“23” (MCA Nashville) out for some radio spins.

It’s actually one of his best to date with a chorus that I can’t seem to get out of my head.

It appears that Sam is set for another top charter and in record time. If you wanna talk

chart-topper, look no further than the great and powerful Eric Church. His new “Heart

On Fire” (EMI Nashville) is actually “on-fire” and our music and programmers can’t

get enough of it. Already spinning in heavy on many outlets, make sure to include Eric

on your list of hot currents or suffer the consequences. At least I gave you a decent and

fair warning right?

Kane Brown is as hot as they come. His latest in “One Mississippi” (RCA Nashville)

is blowing out the phones and social media is also helping to propel it to even greater

heights. I truly believe that this is one of his best to date and don’t doubt me on it please.

Also pulling in some rather record setting numbers is Keith Urban. He’s got his new single

“Wild Hearts” (Capitol Nashville) in top form and stations are all over this one big time. In

fact, there aren’t many stations out there that are not playing it as of this writing. Could be

that Keith will take this one to #1 in record time and so far so very good for him.

Is Walker Hayes hot or what? “Fancy Like” (Monument/RCA) is not only a super

Country hit single, it is also crossing over to pop radio and they are loving it. It appears

that this song is set to become a music anthem and make no mistake about that. Chris

Young has teamed up with Tenpenny for a real solid winner. “At The End Of A Bar”

(RCA Nashville) is the little jam that I’m talking about and watch the numbers on this

one explode over the next few weeks. Also back in the saddle after a few missteps is

Morgan Wallen. Country is finally putting his music back on radio where it belongs and

that includes his latest offering in “Sand In My Boots” (Big Loud/Republic). This track

is bringing him back big time. Look for some major news regarding his live dates as he

gets set to get out there.

Ryan Price is having quite the run for his debut single “Why We Drive Trucks”

(Magenta). A great solid Country hit at that. Laci Kaye Booth is red hot and that’s a good

thing for country music fans. The track “Shuffle” (19 Recordings/BMLG) is as good

as anything out there so make sure to jump on it if you haven’t done so already. I must

admit that I’ve been following Midland for a spell now and their new single “Sunrise

Tells The Story” (Big Machine) is just what the career has ordered. It’s that good and

a bag of chips make it a real party. Nate Barnes has also got a thang going on and you

better believe it. “You Ain’t Pretty” (Quartz Hill) tells the tale and the chart numbers on

this one seem to get better day by day. Tenille Arts is back where she belongs and that’s

on the charts with “Back Then, Right Now” (19th & Grand). Lee Sims also deserves

support for his new “Big On Little Things” (Adelphos) that is off like a rocket & what

a terrific indie artist he is.

Frank Ray is building fans by leaps and bounds. It’s all due to a little tune called

“Country’d Look Good On You” (Stoney Creek). It’s one of those great story songs

that make us realize just why we are driven to country music. Rob Georg is back on

the charts and that’s always a good thing for all of us. “This Gift Called Life” (Coast)

is some of his best work yet and we see some #1 action already on the works for this

masterpiece. Also getting raves for new music is Eileen Carey. Her new “Leave It All

Behind” (Rolley Coaster) is not only building huge numbers at Country, it’s also crossing

over to pop radio where they are welcoming her with open arms. She’s always been one

of our true favorites.

The fabulous Zac Brown Band are back with “Same Boat” (Home Grown/Warner).

Chloe Collins is pulling in raves and spins as her “Somebody Else’s” (Collins Music)

moves past the pack. I’m also loving new Kevan Michaels called “Down Home Georgia”

(Apache Road). I spun it on a little radio show I host called New Music Monday for

WNHE radio and it blew up the phones. Kevan is the real-deal and this song deserves to

get powered up on all Country radio playlists. Chris Stapleton also has a great song out and

about called “You Should Probably Leave” (Mercury Nashville) that is so good. Is there

anything this guy does that’s not great? Hey this has been fun so let’s do it again.

T I M E

Carrie Underwood is no stranger to the word “reality.” After all, as the winner of the 2005 season of

“American Idol,” she won the hearts of millions of viewers across the world. Now, the singer has entered into

a promotion that is sure to please her fan following.

Sony Music Nashville and Aurasma, the world’s leading augmented reality platform, have partnered

to launch an augmented reality promotional campaign for Underwood’s No. 1 album, “Blown Away,” which

was released in May.

Using the free Aurasma Lite app for iPhones, iPads and Android devices available from the iTunes App

Store and Google Play, fans can launch exclusive video of Underwood that is triggered by aiming the device

at the cover image of Blown Away. The video leaps from the Blown Away image on the mobile device or

tablet and provides a click-through gateway to the album at the iTunes store. The promotion was launched

in Nashville recently at the CMA Music Festival.

“Carrie Underwood is always looking for ways to connect with her fans,” said Gary Overton, Sony

Music Nashville chairman and chief executive officer. “We are excited to embrace a cutting-edge technology like augmented reality to help give fans

something special and provide a cool, unique connection between the artist and audience. Sony Music Nashville is excited to watch this fun idea unfold

and is eager to partner with Aurasma on other future campaigns.”

Upon its release on May 1, “Blown Away” made history by debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country albums sales chart making Underwood

only the second country artist in the 47 year history of the chart to have each of their first four albums debut at No. 1. “Blown Away” also debuted at

No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart making Underwood only the second country artist in history to have three consecutive albums debut at No.

1. “Blown Away” became country’s best-selling digital album debut since 2010.

“Carrie Underwood is a proven superstar. We are thrilled to partner with Sony Music Nashville to help increase the momentum of her smash

album Blown Away,” said Jennifer Rapp, general manager of Aurasma. “By leveraging augmented reality to bridge the physical and virtual worlds, Sony

gives the fans something exclusive and special, helping to keep fans connected and Carrie in the spotlight.”

The free Aurasma app runs on iPhone 3GS (and above), iPad2 (and above), and high-powered Android devices.

Yesterday, Underwood performed the first of four concerts on the Australian leg of her tour to promote “Blown Away.” She kicked things off in

Melbourne, and will perform in Tamworth and Brisbane on Friday and Saturday, before finishing things in Sydney on Sunday. Also, Underwood has just

released the title cut as the second single -- to follow up the chart-topping success of “Good Girl,” which became her fifteenth number one record.

Country Date To Remember:

February 11, 1962

Somewhere, around Fenton, Mo, there are some students who

can say that they had one of music’s sexiest performers as a

teacher. Sheryl Crow - long before she hit it big in 1993 with

“All I Wanna Do,” was actually a music teacher at Kellison

Elementary School. Though her teaching days in school are

long over, Crow - who turns an amazing 50 years old today -

has educated many of her fans about some of Country Music’s

greatest performers, such as Loretta, Hank, and Johnny Cash.

Happy Birthday to one of Rock’s top women!

Concert Crowdfunding:

a Supplementary Way to

Fund Shows

by Mary Ivanova (show4me.com

Whether you are looking to get employed by a band, orchestra

or music collective or are preparing for a solo career, putting on

concerts can help you practice performing in public, build a great

concert resume to help propel your career and even book the job

of your dreams.

You don’t have to be selling out stadiums or concert halls to

be able to muster up an audience for a crowdfunded gig. Moreover,

you can start a crowdfunding campaign for a private event for your

friends only (a private show for 10-20 people) or an intimate show

with under 50 people in attendance. This will both help you dip your

toes in crowdfunding and putting together a show on your own.

Where to start?

Begin the process with coming up with a topic for your event,

approximate playlist, as well as lineup – is it going to be a solo night

or will there be any guest artists? What about a host?

Next, it’s important to be realistic about your budget. Write up

all your costs: venue and staffing fees, equipment rent, promotion,

travel/accommodation costs, stage decor and costumes, as well as

your own fee and taxes.

Be diligent in estimating show budget since you’ll have to set

your ticket price and crowdfunding campaign goal based on that.

Don’t just ballpark it. Do your research, contact the venue and all

the companies/contractors you’ll be using for the event to get their

current rates for your specific event.

Important note: add 20% on top of your budget for unexpected

expenses. Most projects run over budget and it’s better to be

safe than sorry. Concert crowdfunding is designed to alleviate the

financial risks of putting on a show. Running into red just because

you made a miscalculation on the budget sheet would be a shame.

Also remember to give some thought to the service you are

going to use as your crowdfunding platform. The options can be

narrowed down to two categories: general-purpose crowdfunding

platforms, like Kickstarter or Indiegogo, or concert-specific services,

like Show4me concert crowdfunding toolkit. We recommend the

latter since it offers all the tools you might need to hold a professional

concert, down to automatic ticket generation and distribution, as

well as a free ticket scanner app.

Fees on these platforms are success-based and only apply to

winning campaigns.

How to promote it?

Although crowdfunding music events have been slowly

becoming more mainstream, many musicians shy away from them

just because it seems weird to ask fans to pay their way into a show

or a concert. Thing is, when promoting any event, you have to ask

NMW - OCTOBER 15, 2021 Vol. 23 Issue 3

your fans to buy your tickets, so any inconvenience you might feel

about this is all in your head.

It’s important to explain to your fans though that they need to

buy tickets early since the show depends on their support. We’ve

had artists who crowdfunded their events in Show4me refer to this

model of funding as “alternative” or “experimental”.

These seem to be fitting terms to describe concert crowdfunding.

It’s an alternative to the traditional ticket sales and it’s experimental

because the whole process turns into a fun journey where the end

result is not guaranteed – the show either raises enough to be held

or all contributions get fully refunded to the supporters.

In order for an event to happen, you need to market it across

your social media, your email list and your community (yes, we are

talking calling up your friends, going door to door and printing up

physical posters to plaster on local message boards).

Exciting description of your upcoming show along with eyecatching

promo visuals can significantly improve the chances of

your event actually pre-selling enough tickets to happen! (Since all

contributions to your crowdfunding campaign are listed as tickets,

we consider it fitting to call such a campaign a ticket pre-sale as

fans essentially pre-order a concert from you and once it reaches its

minimum budget, the tickets get generated automatically and sent

out to all backers on your behalf when you set the event date).

My event got funded, now what?

So you launched your concert crowdfunding campaign, put

your blood and sweat in promoting it and finally met your event

budget! Congrats!

Now, you need to contact your venue, set the show date, iron

out all your event details and coordinate production duties with your

team and supporting acts, and start producing your show. You do all

of this after you arrange funds withdrawal from your crowdfunding

site.

As you are putting together your concert, you need to still be

very active on your crowdfunding page, as well as social media.

Post updates about the preparation process and behind-the-scenes

photos and videos. Remember that raising the funds is only half

the job, you also need to maintain your fans’ interest leading up to

your show!

Post updates even from behind the curtain as you are preparing

to go on stage. Provide your fans with sneak peaks at the electric

atmosphere both off and on stage at your shows and remember to

thank everyone who helped you make the show happen: your team,

fellow acts, crew, producers, and the fans.

Don’t just thank the fans right after the show from the stage

though. Take the time to send out thank you notes via email, post

them across your social media, in your Show4me Artist club, and

even think about using snail mail for notes to your most dedicated

fans. Taylor Swift does it, why can’t you!
