Tim McGraw and Little Big Town Added to Carnival LIVE’s Exciting 2017 Lineup

carnival-live-tim-mcgraw-1 (2)

Carnival Cruise Line has announced its initial 2017 Carnival LIVE lineup featuring country music stars Tim McGraw and Little Big Town along with comedians Jay Leno and Jeff Foxworthy who will perform on seven different ships departing from five convenient U.S. homeports.

Carnival LIVE is a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience that brings the best in live music and comedy to the seas, providing guests an opportunity to enjoy captivating performances by top artists in a unique and memorable setting where there’s never a bad seat in the house.  Performances are held in the ships’ main show lounges which range in capacity from 900 to 1,300 – giving shows a more intimate and personal feel.

Three-time Grammy Award winner Tim McGraw will bring his signature brand of country music to two Carnival ships with show-stopping performances aboard Carnival Breeze March 2, and Carnival Valor March 3, while the ships are docked in Nassau, The Bahamas.   In addition to 21 number one singles, 11 of McGraw’s albums have debuted at number one on the Billboard country album chart.

Platinum recording artist Little Big Town will have audiences singing along and dancing in the aisles with shows in Nassau aboard Carnival Dream May 11, and Carnival Valor May 12.  The recipients of nine Country Music Association awards, the chart-topping band has earned a loyal following for their unique mix of harmonies and incredible musical talents.

One of the most successful comedians in the country, Jeff Foxworthy is the largest selling comedy recording artist in history, a multiple Grammy Award nominee and author of 11 books.  Famous for his “you might be a redneck if…” jokes, his comedy explores everyday family interactions and human nature.   Foxworthy will perform two shows – one aboard Carnival Freedom June 21, and another aboard Carnival Ecstasy June 22, while the ships are docked in Nassau.

A member of the Television Hall of Fame and a longtime host of NBC’s Tonight Show, Jay Leno will entertain guests with his observational humor with a pair of hilarious performances in Cozumel aboard the Carnival Victory May 3, and Carnival’s newest ship the Carnival Vista May 4.  Leno plays upwards of 200 shows a year and currently hosts “Jay Leno’s Garage” on the CNBC network.

Carnival LIVE tickets for Tim McGraw, Little Big Town, Jeff Foxworthy and Jay Leno range in price from $30 to $80 for general admission, significantly less than land-based venues.  VIP tickets are available for $100 to $300 and include seating in the first five rows, a photo opportunity with the artist and a commemorative concert pass.

A full listing of all Carnival LIVE performances is available at www.carnival.com/CarnivalLIVE. For additional information and reservations, contact any travel agent, call 1-800-CARNIVAL or visit carnival.com.

2016 British Country Music Awards Nominees Announced

bcma orginal1WITHOUT

The nominees for the prestigious British Country Music Awards have been announced.

This event has attracted and become the benchmark for many artists who were previously unknown to the Country music fans who just attend the many events around the club scene and as Country music in the UK grows more and more young acts have been enticed to the genre and so these awards recognise those up and coming artists both here and abroad as well as the more celebrated performers. They are open to all.

Members of the British Country Music Association will have the final say on the winners when voting takes place.

Of the nominees Ben Earle gets three nominations including two with Crissie Rhodes as part of The Shires. Nathan Carter gets another nod for Entertainer of the Year, he was nominated too in 2014 and 2015 as was Raintown who must be doing something right, they have four nominations this year, one for Entertainer and the other three in Video, Album and Group categories. Gary Perkins, who recently won CCN Band of the Year also gets a nomination in the Entertainer category.

Newcomers to the awards nominations are The Southern Companion, Ashton Lane, Thorne Hill and Red Sky July. A spokesman said: ‘The quality of the British acts who have come to the fore since British Country music has stepped up to the mark means we shall be soon listening to more of our own acts rather than importing them from across the world. We can match the US with quality, we just need to get them publicized more. The likes of The Southern Companion, Holloway Road, The Shires and Ward Thomas are creating waves and it is no wonder the large recording companies have opened offices in London.’

For more details of the Awards Show and the Best of British event to be held the day before at the same venue in London or go to bcmawards.co.uk.

Tim McGraw to Kick off Fourth of July at Stadium of Fire

tim mcgraw

Patriotism, fireworks and country superstar Tim McGraw — the perfect combination for a pre-Fourth of July celebration. Tim is headlining this year’s Stadium of Fire celebration on July 2.

“We think we’ve got an excellent show, and the whole show is built around patriotism,” said Paul Warner, executive director of the Freedom Festival. “We’re making a real effort to focus strictly on love of country and appreciation of military men and women and all the good things we do in the world and country.”

Tim is no stranger to honoring military members. He works with Operation Homefront, and organization which awards mortgage-free homes to veterans, according to his website. During his 2015 Shotgun Rider Tour, he was involved in awarding 36 homes to veterans.

One thing that’s different for the Stadium of Fire this year will be the length of the main performance. Last year there were people who wanted the Journey performance to last longer, so this year organizers decided to give Tim more time,

Warner said. He’ll have at least an hour, “maybe a little bit more.” But even with an hour, he may not get through all hits because there are so many.

There won’t be a backup performer like Stadium of Fire has had in years past, to give McGraw more time to perform, Warner added.

The Stadium of Fire has grown to become one of the United States’ premier patriotic celebrations, attracting an average of more than 40,000 people. It’s televised live to more than one million military men and women in more than 100 countries via the American Forces Network.

There are still tickets available for this year’s event.  To buy tickets, go to freedomfestival.org.
