HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY from Country Music Tattle Tale

fourth0715-of-july

Country Music Tattle Tale wishes all of our readers a very safe and Happy 4th of July!   With so much going on in our world today we believe it is important to remember why we celebrate this very important day in our history.

Every July 4th we celebrate the signing of one of the great documents of history. The Declaration of Independence is still cherished today, not only because it proclaimed the independence of a new nation; and not only because it declared that all Americans are free. The Declaration goes further than that, asserting, ‘that all men are created equal’.  Every day thousands of people leave their homeland to come to the “land of the free and the home of the brave” so they can begin their American Dream.

“The Star Spangled Banner”

by Francis Scott Key
20 September 1814

Oh, say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, now conceals, now discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines on the stream:
‘Tis the star-spangled banner! O long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wiped out their foul footstep’s pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heaven-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, for our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the star-spangled banner forever shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

In light of recent medical news about a band member, Little Big Town is rescheduling their show at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas on Friday, June 26 to Friday, December 4th. Tickets are on sale now.

The group posted the following on their Facebook page this week:
“With heavy hearts we want to let you guys know that Jimi will have to undergo surgery next week to remove a polyp on his vocal cord. As a result, doctors have ordered him to rest his voice and completely recuperate before we continue touring. All shows through July 30th will be cancelled or rescheduled. It breaks our hearts to let you guys down, but Jimi’s health is the most important thing and he is expected to make a full recovery with rest and treatment. We will keep everyone updated on Jimi’s progress. Thanks for your understanding and support.”

“Originally our date was going to be cancelled but we didn’t want to let down the Vegas fans so we scrambled to find a new date,” said Bobby Reynolds, VP of Booking for AEG Live Las Vegas. “We luckily found a new date with perfect timing. Friday, December 4 falls right during National Finals Rodeo so now more Little Big Town fans will have the opportunity to see them at The Joint.”

Tickets for the June 26th show will be valid for December 4th. Fans who wish to receive a refund will need to go through their original point of purchase. Special guests for the December 4th show will be announced at a later date.

Tickets start at $35 (plus applicable service fees) and are available at the Hard Rock Hotel box office, by calling 888.9.AXS.TIX or online at www.axs.com.
