Lee Brice to Debut New Single on David Letterman TONIGHT!

Lee Brice I Don't Dance

Lee Brice is gearing up for a powerful I Don’t Dance (Sept. 9th) street week by debuting his second radio single “Drinking Class” tonight on “The Late Show With David Letterman” TONIGHT.  The song that “heads right down the blue-collar Springsteen highway” (Country Weekly) follows “I Don’t Dance” which recently became Brice’s fourth #1 Country hit.
The “evocative, rough-edged singer” (NY Times) that Redbook calls a “keeper,” returns to New York City on Sept. 8TH for an appearance on “Wake Up With Al” with Al Roker and a street day performance on NBC’s “Today.”

USA Today posted its exclusive stream of the 16-track I Don’t Dance Deluxe Edition saying, “nobody in Nashville writes a love song like Brice,” and this week’s print edition of Rolling Stone says Lee is a “rising Nashville star who’s mastered the art of appealing to all of his fans,” with an album whose “songwriting is as urgent as the production is ambitious.”

Having co-written and co-produced nearly every song on the “best album of his career,” (Billboard Country Update) Lee “might just be the hardest-working man on Music Row” (American Songwriter).

To round out his release week, Lee will perform at Madison Square Garden on Friday, Sept. 12th and Barclays Center on Sunday, Sept. 14th as part of Luke Bryan’s “That’s My Kind of Night” tour.

lady antebellum

Lady Antebellum has tipped the charts with their white-hot single “Bartender,” taking the No.One spot on both Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase radio charts this week. The track is the lead single off their upcoming fifth studio album 747, out Sept. 30th.

“There are enough sad, sulking breakup songs out there already,” said Lady A’s Hillary Scott. “We went into this wanting to put a spin on it and take the approach that the only way to get over it is to get out on the town with your girls! It’s also insanely fun to perform, and the three of us have had a blast pumping up the tempo and going all out on it. It’s been a great lead single to set up 747!”

Lady Antebellum’s upcoming fifth studio album 747 follows over 11 million albums sold worldwide, nine trips to No. One on the country radio charts, five Platinum singles and seven GRAMMY awards. The band is currently wrapping up their headlining TAKE ME DOWNTOWN TOUR, which saw thegroup hit 80 cities in Canada and the US.

Toby Keith’s Kones for the Korral Ice Cream Helps Children Battle Cancer

OK Kids Korral

The Toby Keith Foundation and Chatenay Square Merchants Association held the second annual Kones for the Korral ice cream festival on Monday (9/1/14).

The event, called Kones for the Korral, was designed to benefit OK Kids Korral, a cost-free home for families with children who are battling cancer. This was the second year for the event, which was hosted by the Toby Keith Foundation and the Chatenay Square Merchants Association.

Those who stopped by Chatenay Square for the event could indulge in all the ice cream they cared to eat, as well as bounce houses, face painting, pony rides, live musical acts, and free massages. The event coincided with Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, which is observed during September.

OK Kids Korral  is a  a cost-free home for families with children who are battling cancer.  Some families stay for one night and others stay for weeks or months at a time. The house, at 818 NE 8, is designed to provide a convenient and hopeful place for families to connect with each other and focus on the well-being of their children.

Traveling from home to the Oklahoma City metro area for treatment can be a huge burden for families who live in other parts of the state, said Juliet Nees-Bright, executive director of The Toby Keith Foundation.

“Our mission is to keep families together,” she said.

A number of the people who participated in Monday’s event have been touched by OK Kids Korral in some way.

Find Out How Rascal Flatts Stay Healthy on the Road

Rascal Flatts

Country music tends to go hand-in-hand with down-home comforts like Southern fried chicken and cold beer. And, as the band Rascal Flatts knows all too well, the life of a country singer isn’t always conducive to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, either. After years of late-night pizza binges on the tour bus, the award-winning country band is ready to make a change for the better. That’s why they’ve signed on as official spokesmen for the heartburn relief brand Nexium® 24HR , an over-the-counter acid blocker. It’s a cause that’s near and dear to their hearts (no pun intended).

“All three of us have frequent heartburn and we really hate to admit it, but it’s held us back, especially when we’re celebrating with family, friends and, of course, our fans,” explained Gary LeVox, lead singer of Rascal Flatts. “After joining the thousands of people who choose Nexium 24HR every day, we feel protected all day and all night from frequent heartburn. We invite everyone looking for complete protection from frequent heartburn to join us.”

Currently touring the country to promote their ninth and latest album, Rewind, the guys are making a concerted effort to stay healthy on the road.

Keith Urban Releasing Two Car Songs in a Row is Just a Coincidence

Keith Urban

If you think it’s by design that Keith Urban followed his hit “Cop Car” with another automobile song, “Somewhere in My Car,” he says you’d be wrong.

“It’s not intentional. It’s just the themes, I guess, that hit some of my songs,” Keith tells ABC News Radio. “Not all of them, it’s just with these singles — the order of the singles has seen this car theme, but they’re the only car songs on the whole album.”

Keith admits he is definitely a car aficionado, though.

“It’s the first thing, for me, that I was excited to be able to get, my first car,” he recalls, “and most people remember what their first car was. My dad was a car-lover, so I really inherited that. My taste in cars run the gamut of all sort of eclectic things, but it’s trucks, too. I love trucks, cars, everything, and we’ve got some truck songs on the record. But, ‘Somewhere in My Car’ is really, it’s not really about a car so much as it is what happens in the backseat of a car.”

When he’s in the front seat, the Aussie superstar does follow some more serious pursuits, it turns out.

”It’s where I still listen to more music than anywhere, probably, in the car,” he says. “It’s just a great place of sort of coming to terms with everything, you know what I mean? It’s the only quiet place you can get, sometimes, is in the car, as well.”

Next weekend, Keith takes his Raise ‘Em Up tour to Irvine and Mountain View, California.
