Eli Young Band to perform “Wing-A-Palooza” concert for US Military Troops Stationed Japan

Eli Young Band

Military, Music and Wings – it’s a triple threat combination! As part of its “Battle of the Bases” contest, Pizza Hut and the Army Air Force Exchange Services (AAFES) partnered with Eli Young Band to reward Camp Schwab Military Base and neighboring Okinawa bases with a complimentary “Wing-A-Palooza” concert on November 1, 2014 for eating the most Pizza Hut wings among 30 installations worldwide.

Consuming more wings than their fellow service men and women, Camp Schwab in Okinawa, Japan won the contest and along with neighboring Okinawa military bases will enjoy a real treat on Halloween weekend filled with good music, food and the company of EYB lead singer Mike Eli, guitarist James Young, drummer Chris Thompson and bassist Jay Jones. AAFES, more commonly referred to as The Exchange, operates the 30 participating Pizza Hut locations on the military bases and does not make a profit. Rather all monies made by The Exchange are reinvested to make lives better on the US Military bases. The Exchange and Pizza Hut worked together to host the competition and concert.

“Working with AAFES on the inaugural ‘Battle of the Bases’ program has been a tremendous experience and opportunity for Pizza Hut to serve up some of our award-winning WingStreet wings to our military and their families,” said Molly Light, Director, Pizza Hut Express. “We chose Eli Young Band not only because of their local roots, but because of their tremendous passion for the armed services and personal affiliations with family and friends currently serving.”

 

“We all have family in the armed forces, so we jumped at the opportunity to fly to Japan and perform for these men and women that sacrifice so much,” said Eli Young Band. “We’re excited to team up with a company from our own backyard. We’ll always be honored to perform for our military and truth be told we’ve also never said no to pizza either.”

Pizza Hut first introduced its WingStreet concept 10 years ago and officially rolled it out nationally in March, making it present in more than 5,500 restaurants across America. The award-winning WingStreet wings are “kitchen-fried” and tossed with a choice of one of eight sauces to give customers a wing-joint-quality experience from America’s largest pizza company.

Jake Owen Releases “What We Ain’t Got” Lyric Video

Jake Owen premiered the brand new lyric video forhis new single “What We Ain’t Got,” and it’s a party…literally.

The video was shot at a huge block party Jake Owen recently hosted here in Nashville at the BMI building (and parking lot). We filmed some of his performance, and a very special moment happened onstage – Jake brought the co-writer (Travis Meadows) of his new single “What We Ain’t Got” onstage to sing the song with him. He has a compelling story of success, and struggle, and finding himself again.

Miranda Lambert’s Ladysmith a Place to Keep Her Stuff

ladysmith
Miranda Lambert
is a singer/songwriter and shop owner (Pink Pistol), but she recently added B&B owner to her resume. She sat down with Yahoo Travel to talk about The Ladysmith,s a quaint 113 year old building in downtown Toshomingo, Oklahoma that was inspired by Miranda’s unique collection of “Old Shit.”

It’s things I’ve acquired over a couple of years. I’ve been buying things I love, and I’d just put them in storage. Then when this B&B came up, I thought, “This is perfect.”

I needed to do something with it. I needed a B&B because I needed someplace to put my stuff!

It’s crazy. I’m a fan of preserving old things. I loved the building [a converted 1901 drugstore], which was just sitting there rotting. I wanted to turn it into something grand, to its original state. I bought it; it wasn’t for sale, but everything’s for sale. Then I said, “I don’t know the first thing about running a B&B.”But the building is what inspired me.

I wasn’t planning on doing this in my life, but I found a great innkeeper [Staci Addison] and staff. Every room has its own character, its message to say. I feel like that’s how my albums are.

Miranda hopes her face and name on the B&B along with her shop across the street will drive people to experience the small-town that she’s so proud of.

We really encourage everybody to visit all the businesses and restaurants.

There are a lot of great little boutiques down the street. And what I love is the small-town people.

[The Ladysmith] is the real deal. It’s a warm environment if you really want to know what it’s like to be in a small town. It’s a good way to get away.

Luke Bryan Credits Good Genes…er Jeans for His Smooth Moves

Luke Bryan

Last night, Luke Bryan was featured on Nightline where he spoke about his signature moves on stage and the music he sings. The moves…he gives all the credit to good jeans…Although we beg to differ… It may be good genes.

Over the past few years, Luke has been thrown into the ‘Bro-Country’ category with Florida Georgia Line, Cole Swindell, Jason Aldean and more. He isn’t flattered by the label…In fact, it’s just the opposite.

“It really aggravates me,” Bryan said. “It’s a derogatory term, in my opinion, of what me and the people that are doing this music… Yeah do I sing about a truck and a beer on one song, but then do I sing about a completely different subject matter. I mean, listen to the whole album and don’t judge me on one song.”

I wonder if he realizes it’s not the trucks and beer that give him that label. It’s the sudden change from “We Rode in Trucks” and “Tackle Box” to truck beds and girls getting frisky over a catfish dinner that slipped him into that stereotype.

Glen Campbell Documentary in Theaters Tomorrow

glen campbell

Glen Campbell’s wife says he’s at stage six of the seven stages of Alzheimer’s disease. Kim Campbell says he’s lost most of his language skills and he rarely understands anything that’s said to him. However, she says Campbell still communicates with hugs and smiles, and he’s healthy and is “a delight to be around.”

A documentary about him called “Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me” opens in theaters tomorrow. Director James Keach says the opening scene shows Campbell watching the film and not recognizing himself. Keach says once Campbell was told it’s him, he loved listening to his own music.

“We need to let people know about this disease, we need to do something about it,” she remembers her husband telling her at the time. “He really made himself vulnerable, because he wanted to make a difference.”

Campbell has not performed in public since November of 2012.   Glen’s  record label released his final studio recording: a heart-breaking ballad, “I’m Not Gonna Miss You.”  The single was recorded in January 2013 — just months after Campbell stopped performing in public.
