Reba’s Pray for Peace Movement

reba-pray-for-peace
On Monday (7/21) Reba McEntire released a new song and video “Pray For Peace” via her website and social media pages.

“The idea to write [the song] came to me last year as I was walking on our place in Gallatin, TN,” she says. “For days I’d sing, ‘Pray for Peace’ over and over. It wasn’t until several months later did the other parts start to fall in place. Some, not until we got into the studio to record it.”

The tune is already generating big name support. Keith Urban posted a YouTube video of his family praying. Amy Grant posted a video of herself singing the song on her Facebook page. And while there’s no official word on whether “Pray For Peace” will be on a new album, her pal Ronnie Dunn says via his Facebook page, “No record label knew what to do with it, so she made it an online thing.”

Following two stadium sellouts this weekend, two-time ACM “Male Vocalist Of The Year” Jason Aldean has released “Burnin’ It Down” as the lead single from his upcoming sixth studio album for Broken Bow Records. Again produced by Michael Knox and recorded with members of Aldean’s long time touring band, the smoking new single is available now at Country Radio and for purchase at all digital retailers.

“Sonically, this track definitely feels like something different for me and what I have typically put out as the lead single off my previous albums,” said Aldean. “I’ve pretty much always gone with a really guitar-driven song that’s pretty in your face, and this is more of a laid back thing with a really cool groove. We played it live for the first time this weekend in Cleveland and Cincy at the stadium gigs, and I’m excited to see how it takes off from here. There are some different things on this new album, and I hope this sets a good tone for what’s to come.”

Aldean is currently in the midst of a monumental stadium run which will take him through five stadiums as part of his headlining BURN IT DOWN 2014 TOUR. This past weekend Aldean played back to back sold out shows at Progressive Field and Great American Ball Park. Over the next two weekends Aldean will play Nationals Park (Washington, DC on 7/25); PNC Park (Pittsburgh, PA on 7/26) and Citizens Bank Park (Philadelphia, PA on 8/1).

Brad Paisley Sides with the Police

Brad Paisley is siding with the police regarding an incident where a woman and her 4 month old infant were removed from the pit area of the concert. She says it was because she was breastfeeding, but police say it was for the safety and welfare of the child.

There’s no way I would take a [4]-month-old baby into the pit at one of my concerts. It seemed to me, it sure seemed that she did the absolute wrong thing,” Brad tells Radio.com.

I was somewhere else on the stage at that point.” But, he said, “from what I was told by the authorities, according to the police it had nothing to do with breastfeeding at all. Nothing.From what I saw in the video, it looked like they were kind,” he said. “It didn’t look like they were mean.”

There’s no way I would take a [4]-month-old baby into the pit at one of my concerts. It seemed to me, it sure seemed that she did the absolute wrong thing. When my kids go to concerts—and believe it or not, they were there at that one, and they rarely go — they look like Princess Leia, they have these huge earphones. And they’re back at the soundboard. Because even back there it’s 100 decibels.”

And down front in the pit? That’s much louder. Not only are you hearing the concert’s basic audio, but as Paisley explained, you’re getting some serious bass. “The subs that carry the bass are right there under the stage. And this is how powerful those are: those reach the lawn. We don’t have a separate set that are way back in the amphitheater. You got a little baby that’s hearing [those] frequencies … I mean, come on!”

“People are crazy, they do some crazy things and make some bad decisions,” he continued. “And that was in every way a bad decision. And I wish she would just learn from this as opposed to pretending to be a victim.”

There ya have it folks… Concerts are loud…even Brad Paisley ones…
