Independent Country Artist Continues to Celebrate Mainstream Success Through Major Placement on Spotify and Billboard Chart Success
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Sept. 22, 2017) – In the midst of the career-defining release of his new album Come Back Road, Logan Mize has partnered with Budweiser on a monthly video series based around his song, “Somebody To Thank.”
"It is so important that we always remember and give thanks to those who helped us get to where we are. Even the smallest gesture of gratitude can make a big difference in someone's life. I can't think of any better time to announce as yesterday was 'World Gratitude Day,'" said Logan Mize.
A new video will be released monthly via Logan’s YouTube and Facebook spotlighting the relationships built around the struggles, gratitude and opportunities that have helped shape Mize into who he is as a person, artist, husband and father and to remind everyone to always say thank you to those who were a part of the journey.
Mize has an unusually colorful life story as he struggled for years in Nashville. From getting turned away up and down Music Row to holding down day jobs including driving a party bus and a dump truck.
Streaming services have played a huge part in Mize’s success and continuing to grow his fan base exponentially. Listen to the new Big Yellow Dog release, Come Back Road, on New Boots, Tailgate Party and Country Kind of Love on Spotify and download his music on iTunes and Amazon Music.

-- Big Announcement Coming Soon --
Nashville, TN -- (September 22, 2017) Ashlee, Shelby, and Whitney, better known as Post Monroe, are unveiling brand new music. In between appearances and live performances this year, the trio took time to concentrate on writing and they are delivering two amazing songs which are being featured on Spotify's "New Music Friday" playlist.
In a twist of nostalgia, the trio is coming with a song and a flipside, calling this their “Digital 45: Vol. 1,” which contains the freshly penned tracks “White Noise” and “Psycho," co-written with their producers David Fanning and Ben Stennis, which releases TODAY and can be downloaded HERE.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Country Music Hall of Fame members and five-time GRAMMY winning group, The Oak Ridge Boys, announced they will release a project with acclaimed producer Dave Cobb in the first quarter of 2018.
At a listening event during Americana Music Association AmericanaFest at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A, where the album was recorded, the Oaks performed songs from the yet-untitled project recorded with multi-award winning producer Dave Cobb. This is the group’s second project with Cobb, who produced the Oaks’ acclaimed The Boys Are Back album released in 2009.
For the new project, Cobb’s vision for the Oaks was to dig way back into their roots of gospel music. But a different kind of gospel. One that took a hard look at the early days of rock and roll, which was influenced by spiritual, or black gospel.
The album will be released by Lightning Rod Records and distributed by Thirty Tigers.
According to Logan Rogers, founder of Lightning Rod Records, “Everyone has heard the Boys sing gospel, but nobody has heard it quite like this. Under Dave Cobb’s direction, they touch on unchartered territory—and for a long-tenured act like The Oak Ridge Boys, that’s saying something.”
The event was hosted by Peter Cooper, Senior Director, Producer and Writer at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

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.
