Tim McGraw Releases “Shotgun Rider”

Shotgun-Rider

Tim McGraw is preparing for the release of his upcoming album, SUNDOWN HEAVEN TOWN (Big Machine Records), with a brand new single, “Shotgun Rider.” The breezy track touts romantic notions with an infectious melody and is available to radio today via Play MPE.

“This is one of those songs that really paints a picture and sets a mood,” says McGraw. “In my mind, you look over and see the person that you love next to you sitting in the front seat, and you think, ‘How good do I have it? Life is perfect.’ There is a certain warmth to this song and several others like it that really establish the tone for the whole album.”

As McGraw eyes the release of SUNDOWN HEAVEN TOWN, he’ll team up with award-winning director Bennett Miller (Moneyball, Capote) on release day, Sept. 16th, for the popular live stream music series “American Express Unstaged” at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom at 9:00 PM ET. The event will be live streamed at amexunstaged.com.

Tim McGraw to Stream Unstaged Concert from NYC

Tim McGraw is pairing with Oscar-nominated director Bennett Miller – but not for a movie. Bennett (Moneyball, Capote) will direct McGraw’s 9pm ET Sept. 16 concert from New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom in American Express Unstaged. The concert is on the same day McGraw’s album Sundown Heaven Town album is released and will be streamed live here.

“Bennett is such an incredibly talented director and I’m excited that we get to work together on the next ‘Unstaged,'” said McGraw. “I have a tremendous amount of respect for him and his work. I know with his unique, creative point of view, this will be a really special experience for me and my fans on the day my album comes out.”

This won’t be just any concert. Here are a few unique components of Unstaged:

  • Before Sept. 16, fans can visit amexunstaged.com to see McGraw telling the stories behind some of his songs.
  • If enough fans tweet using #AmexUNSTAGED leading up to and during the concert, they will unlock an encore performance. They can also vote on what that song is.
  • Throughout the live show, fans can control how they watch the show by switching between the director’s main stream and alternate points inside the venue.

Go Backstage at the Academy of Country Music Awards

ACM Awards

The Academy of Country Music is announcing that the first-ever ACM commemorative book, This Is Country: A Backstage Pass to the Academy of Country Music Awards will be available to music fans everywhere on Tuesday, September 23, 2014, at booksellers nationwide, and is available NOW for pre-order at Amazon.  Written by the Academy’s own Lisa Lee, with a foreword by Reba, the gorgeous 224 page book invites fans to peek behind the scenes of the ACM Awards.  All of the Academy’s proceeds from sales of the book will go to ACM Lifting Lives.

Featuring contributions by country music’s biggest stars from the 1960s to the present day, including Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Loretta Lynn, Alabama’s Randy Owen, Reba, Blake Shelton, George Strait, and Marty Stuart, and commentary from Kenny Chesney, Merle Haggard, Faith Hill, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw, Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and many more, This Is Country is a must-have for fans of music everywhere.

From the first informal ceremony at the Hollywood Palladium in the mid-’60s to today’s star-studded LIVE telecast viewed by millions, generations of country’s biggest superstars have graced the Academy of Country Music Awards stage.  Now, in anticipation of the 50th ACM Awards telecast next spring, the Academy has opened its archive for the first time ever to reveal candid, never-before-seen photographs and memorabilia capturing some of the greatest moments in the history of country music. Rich with backstage and performance photographs, compelling behind-the-scenes stories, and firsthand accounts from country legends and contemporary artists, This Is Country: A Backstage Pass to the Academy of Country Music Awards (Insight Editions / $50.00 / September 2014) offers a rare and intimate glimpse into the past, present, and evolution of the Academy.

“For five decades, the Academy of Country Music Awards has proudly showcased the best in country music, to the delight of millions of viewers,” said Bob Romeo, CEO of the Academy of Country Music. “We are so excited to share some of the most candid moments in our history with music fans. ‘This Is Country’ truly is a backstage pass to the ACM Awards.”

“It’s an incredible honor to help tell the story of the Academy as well as the stories of the amazing artists and people behind the scenes who have built it over the last 50 years,” said Lee.  “To flip through the pages and watch the show evolve from a Southern California banquet to a network television powerhouse is a sight to behold.”

“It’s been a wonderful experience working with the Academy and Lisa Lee,” said Robbie Schmidt, Insight Editions’ acquisitions editor. “The ACM has an incredibly rich history and we’re excited to offer country music fans this intimate look behind the scenes. A special thank you to the iconic artists whose participation and support made this book possible.”

All of the Academy’s proceeds from sales of the book will go to ACM Lifting Lives, the philanthropic arm of the Academy of Country Music, dedicated to improving lives through the power of music.  Through partnerships with artists and strong ties in the music industry, ACM Lifting Lives develops and funds music-related therapy and education programs, and serves members of the community who face unexpected hardships through its Diane Holcomb Emergency Relief Fund. Through generous donations and the support of artists and fans, ACM Lifting Lives is able to fund everything from disaster relief and helping communities in need, to music education in schools and music camps for those with disabilities, to supporting programs that use music therapy as a means to help our veterans and wounded warriors, while providing grants to help them ease back into life.  For more details on the book or for more information on ACM Lifting Lives, the charitable arm of the Academy of Country Music, please visit www.ACMcountry.com or www.ACMLiftingLives.org.
