NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Paul Burch, a pioneer in fusing an unmistakably modern voice to American roots music, celebrates his 10th release, Meridian Rising, on Plowboy Records on February 26, 2016. Meridian Rising is a first-of-its-kind concept album based on the life of Jimmie Rodgers — the genre-breaking superstar of the late 1920s whose blend of pop, folk, and blues anticipated rock ’n’ roll.

The February 26, 2015 release also includes the issue of a limited-edition 10-inch EP of vinyl-only tracks featuring Billy Bragg, plus two songs recorded direct to the King Records cutting lathe atThird Man Records. The vinyl 10-inch includes a full download of Meridian Rising along with a poster by Country Music Hall of Fame artist-in-residence Jon Langford.

For more than two decades, Burch has combined an indie rock ethos with a personal vision of roots music that has attracted a mix of equally ineffable collaborators including Lambchop, Mark Knopfler, Vic Chesnutt, Candi Staton, the Waco Brothers, and Ralph Stanley. “At the risk of being impeached by the bluegrass purists,” wrote legendary music critic Chet Flippo in 2006, “I think Burch is the best duet partner Ralph Stanley has found since his brother, Carter Stanley, died in 1966.”

NASHVILLE, TN - November 30, 2015 (Press Release)- Alt-country singer/songwriter Bart Crow takes The Parade to the music fans in Ireland this week for a string of acoustic shows in Dublin as part of the Red Dirt Pub Crawl.

Red Dirt Pub Crawl (Dublin, Ireland):
Dec 3 Merchants Arch
Dec 3 Bad Ass Bar
Dec 5 Trinity Bar
Dec 6 Bachelor Inn
Dec 7 Temple Bar

Crow just received a huge honor in his home state. The Texas native and Army veteran was invited to add his name to the infamous “backstage pass” wall at the world’s largest honky-tonk - Billy Bob’s Texas. Crow joins ranks of many music legends to have earned the honor including Willie Nelson, Loretta Lynn,  Alan Jackson, Alabama, Hank Williams, Jr., Chris LeDoux, Blake Shelton, Dwight Yoakam, Charlie Robison, and Marty Stuart among others. 

In addition to the Ireland tour dates (Red Dirt Pub Crawl) and his Billy Bob’s Texas honor, The Parade- which No Depression says is one of the albums of “New Music You Need,” continues to vault his notoriety outside the borders of his home state. Crow made his debut on the AMA Americana Airplay album chart with The Parade and Starbucks chose “Dear Music,” from the album to feature in their Overhead Music program last month. The Texas native’s sixth album entered the chart at No. 40 and made an impressive leap 13 spots to No. 27 after only one week. “Life Comes At You Fast,” the debut single from The Parade, peaked at No. 2 on the Texas Music Chart after a solid 25 weeks. The single spent the last six weeks in the Top 5 of the Texas charts making it the longest running Top 5 Texas singles of the year. 

The Parade is available now at iTunes

Obviously a live show is pretty much IT, but when that cannot be, what's better than a concert call? A Stageit show works in my book. It's live music that you can watch in your bed, comfy chair, office or really, anywhere. 

On November 29th at 8pmEST, American Aquarium front man BJ Barham will be closing out Thanksgiving weekend by hosting a Stageit, playing old songs, new songs and really, anything he wants. It's going to be a "don't miss it" good one. So get the info. and grab a ticket here.

(Press Release) Eric Heatherly delivers a saucy holiday invitation that cannot be denied. With the sentiment and allure of “Be Mine For Christmas” (KEM--featuring Ledisi) and the Ann Margret/Al Hirt rendition of “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” this solo, seductive contemporary holiday track is “Mississippi Blues meets early Elvis.” Featuring saloon parlor ivories, screamin’ guitar licks and harmonica to jazz things up, this tune is a mood swinger.

"You freeze me like fire
Burn me like snow
When you stand there in the doorway underneath the mistletoe
Somethin's cookin' in the oven like a sugar cookie
Girl you're sweet lovin' makes me wanna boogie
I'll be your Santa Claus but I'll never leave
You feel like Christmas to me"

"These are songs that others aspire to be." - No Depression
(Press Release) Following the release of his critically acclaimed new album Daytime Turned To Nighttime, out now on Nine Mile Records, Patrick Sweany has released a new music video for the album's opening track "First Of The Week."
Watch the video on YouTube:
The Daily Beast called Patrick Sweany a "goddamned good guitarist and songwriter." Writer James Joiner elaborated and said, "On his latest record, Daytime Turned to Nighttime, he’s relaxed a little, settled into his role as a Southern gentleman, and the laconic tunes seep sincerity as much as they do musical dexterity."
For Daytime Turned To Nighttime, Sweany continued to work with local producer and engineer Joe McMahan, who lent his talents to Close To The Floor (2013) as well as That Old Southern Drag (2011). Together, they recruited Ron Eoff (The Band, The Cate Brothers) and Bryan Owings (Tony Joe White, Emmylou Harris) as the rhythm section. Sweany refers to them as "the funkiest, most soulful players you could ask for." 
Luke Torn of Uncut rated the album 8 out of 10 and said, "Digging deep into the essence of the late-'60s Muscle Shoals with every note, tapping into both the musical and emotional pull of myriad postwar blues, soul and country styles, Nashvillian Patrick Sweany crafts what sounds like a career highlight."
