NASHVILLE, Tenn. – In recent years, groundbreaking country music icon Tanya Tucker has been quietly writing and recording new music while coping with a wave of emotions surrounding Glen Campbell’s battle with Alzheimer's disease. While their relationship and breakup made headlines years ago, Tucker channeled her heartfelt feelings for Campbell in a new song titled “Forever Loving You.” A portion of the proceeds from “Forever Loving You” will benefit Alzheimer's Foundation of America, a non-profit organization which provides programs and services for people living with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers, as well as funds research towards a cure for Alzheimer’s.
Tanya Tucker statement on passing of Glen Campbell:
“I’m just devastated. Absolutely devastated. It’s been so hard these past several years knowing what he’s been going through. My heart just breaks. Glen and I shared some incredible, precious memories together for a long time. There were some ups and downs and, of course, all the downs were played out in the press. We both got past all that. Forgiveness is a wonderful thing. It’s why I’m releasing “Forever Loving You” in memory of Glen and for all of those who are losing or have lost someone they love. I’ll forever love you, Glen.”
Tucker co-wrote “Forever Loving You” with Michael Lynn Rogers and Rusty Crowe, a Tennessee State Senator who co-sponsored the Campbell/Falk Act. The Tennessee law protects communication rights for people who've become wards of the state and those who have conservators over their financial and living situations.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Chart-topping, ACM award-winning artist Justin Moore’s performance in a “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” skit landed an Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics category for “The Ballad of Claus Jorstad (Devil Stool).” The spoof was written by Jimmy Kimmel and Gary Greenberg.
"If you had told me I would be a part of earning an Emmy nod for singing a song about what I did, I would have thought you were crazy. Haha," said Moore. "Nonetheless, it's very cool to hear. I'm excited for Jimmy and his crew. Hopefully, we can bring it home. They told me this week that they would share it with me, so it would be pretty cool to add an Emmy to the mantle."
Watch here as the platinum-selling artist introduces his wicked sense of humor to the late night audience as he performed the song about an unlucky man in Norway who had an unfortunate run-in with an Ikea stool in the shower.
The 2017 Emmy Awards will air live on CBS on Sept. 17 at 8PM ET. A complete list of 2017’s Emmy Awards nominees is available on Emmys.com.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 28, 2017) – Logan Mize is an artist on the ascent with the numbers to back it up. His 12-track album — produced by Dan Agee— Come Back Road is out today and has already yielded a single demonstrating the power of his songwriting and voice. The full-length Big Yellow Dog Music release can be purchased HERE.
The debut single from the “driving” (Rolling Stone) Come Back Road, “Ain’t Always Pretty,” was pushed out early this year and has already exceeded 22 million streams on Spotify and has been selected for inclusion on popular playlists on both Spotify and Apple Music. With early support from The Bobby Bones Show, “Ain’t Always Pretty” has quickly become the most popular single ever released by Mize. He continues to prove that he is one of the hottest independent artists to watch in country music with cutting-edge success, strong fan feedback and glowing reviews.
“‘Come Back Road,’ written by Josh Kear, Ross Copperman and Rodney Clawson, benefits from symmetry in the production – a fingerpicked acoustic guitar and Mize's serrated edge vocals give way to a contemporary, thunderous drum loop before returning to the acoustic strums.” - Jon Freeman, Rolling Stone Country.
Exclusive premieres were released by Rolling Stone, Taste of Country, The Boot, Lovin’ Lyrics and The Shotgun Seat; all eager to be the first to share the music with their followers.
"I'm really blown away by the early response to this album. It's tough to drum up this kind of noise about a release without a major label and country radio airplay,” said Mize, adding, “I think the combined support of Spotify and Apple Music along with a decade of playing small town bars across the country has put us in a really great spot. Seeing these songs connect with country music fans in such a big way is a tremendous feeling.”
