Motley Crue And Country Music Come Together In “Nashville Outlaws”

Motley

Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue believes you can have country artists covering their songs because the songs can be stripped down easily. Sixx says most of the songs were written on acoustic guitar and a good song will stand up to interpretation.

“Nashville Outlaws: A Tribute to Motley Crue” features acts like Justin Moore, Florida Georgia Line, Rascal Flatts and LeAnn Rimes remaking Motley Crue songs.

Moore says he was attracted to “Home Sweet Home” because it reminded him of his song, “Small Town USA.” He says he never would have thought that something like this would ever come to him, but he had fun with it.

“Nashville Outlaws” is out this week.

Friday, August 8th – Northern Quest Casino & Resort – Airway Heights, WA
Saturday, August 9th – Rocking’ River Music Festival – Mission, BC, CAN

On the cancellations, Rascal Flatts bassist Jay DeMarcus said, “It is incredibly difficult to make the decision to cancel shows and disappoint our loyal fans who have been so good to us over the years. The schedule of shows this past weekend, coupled with media days in New York City, have left him without a voice. We promise to return as soon as we can and give our fans the best show possible!”

Ticketholders should contact their venue for refund information.

Country superstars Rascal Flatts had an unforgettable evening on Friday, as their REWIND Tour 2014 rocked a sold-out Cleveland crowd at the Blossom Music Center. The band’s return to their home state of Ohio packed the arena with the tour’s biggest crowd yet.

The Plain Deale rsaid the band “kept the pavilion and lawn crowds on their feet, dancing and especially singing along.”

The title track marked their 15th #1 hit single. As one of the hottest-selling acts on tour in any genre, they’ve sold over 7 million concert tickets, and counting.
