Josh Kelley - New Lane RoadPreview Entire Album on NPR’s First Listen Now

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (Tuesday, April 19, 2016) – Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Josh Kelley will release his highly-anticipated new album, New Lane Road, on Sugar Hill Records this Friday, April 22. Coming after a nearly five-year hiatus from the “Georgia Clay” singer, New Lane Road is an extremely personal project, reflecting on his marriage, family and home he and actress wife Katherine Heigl built for themselves and their two children in rural Utah.

“I think this is definitely the most honest album I’ve ever done,” Kelley says of the project. “I’m finally at a place that I have compiled enough experiences in traveling to actually have some real substance to write about. It’s all about the land that we live on now. My family and I live out in Utah out in the middle of nowhere. Conceptually, the whole album is rooted in that place.”

Kelley devoted himself wholeheartedly to the creative process for three years while making the album, which he produced, engineered, co-wrote and played most of the instruments himself. Listeners… Continue reading

Kenny ChesneyFollow Up To The Big Revival Looks at the World, Life + Yes, Love

Nashville, Tenn. (April 1, 2016) – With “Noise,” the propulsive look at sonic overload and hyper connectivity, hitting the charts with an unprecedented 146 reporting radio stations, Kenny Chesney struck a nerve about the white noise overwhelming our daily lives. Look for the 8-time Entertainer of the Year to consider the state of the world we live in, resetting reality, drinking, dreams, love and yes, escape when he releases Some Town Somewhere July 8.

“In some ways, this record is more me than anything I’ve done,” Chesney says. “You get into my head, my heart and the way so much of what’s going on around all of us hits me. Taken as a whole, this is a record about seizing life in all its forms: the moments you wish wouldn’t end, the times that make you rethink your priorities, the simple stuff that gives us balance, a few characters at the bar and the hope that it’s all worth doing.”

Drawing on some of his favorite… Continue reading

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (March 2, 2016) –Hits Magazine calls Old Dominion “songwriter-driven, road-tested,” and the two-time ACM nominated band is certainly living up to that moniker.
