KENNY CHESNEY: More Cosmic Info


Kenny Chesney revealed the cover and more information about his new album, Cosmic Hallelujah.

The album, which was originally titled Some Town Somewhere was supposed to be released in July, but that changed when he found the song "Setting the World on Fire." Kenny says, “I’ve been blessed with some of the best songs out there, some songs written, actually, just for this album by writers whose work I’ve loved for years. When ‘Setting the World on Fire’ came together, it opened a window of time – and some songs that had come in after we were done, I didn’t have to save for the next album."


Cosmic Hallelujah comes out on October 28th.

Lee Brice & Justin Moore Coming To Bloomington



For immediate release

LEE BRICE, JUSTIN MOORE ANNOUNCE 2017 CO-HEADLINE ‘AMERICAN MADE’ TOUR

William Michael Morgan, Brett Young Round Out Lineup as Direct Support

No ticket details have been released yet but keep listening as we'll pass along those details when they become available.

September 20, 2016 — Lee Brice and Justin Moore, two of country music’s most dynamic performers, will ring in 2017 with their co-headlined "American Made" tour kicking off January 12 in Indianapolis at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse. William Michael Morgan and Brett Young round out the tour as direct support. (Morgan and Young’s specific markets are noted in the tour schedule below.)

Moore released his fourth album ‘Kinda Don’t Care’ — his third #1 debut on the Country charts — in August. The lead single from the album, the Top-5 and-rising "You Look Like I Need a Drink," lines up right alongside his chart-topping Platinum and Gold-certified hits "Small Town USA," "If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away," "Point at You" and "Lettin’ The Night Roll." This also follows two Gold-certified albums ‘Justin Moore’ and ‘Outlaws Like Me.’ He debuted music from his new album last month with a live performance during the

Fox & Friends’ All-American Summer Concert Series.
Lee Brice is a multiple ACM and CMA award winner with a GRAMMY nomination, six RIAA platinum singles – and more than 10 Million singles sold —under his belt. The "melodically eloquent"
(New York Times) power vocalist, songwriter and producer has celebrated five #1s including "I Drive Your Truck" and "Drinking Class" and was most recently honored by the RIAA during a sold-out show at Madison Square Garden for the platinum certification of his #1 radio single, "I Don’t Dance." He quickly followed that career milestone with performances on NBC’s "The Voice," "Today" and ABC’s
"The Bachelor Live."

"It's very exciting to get back out there as a headliner," Justin says. "To be able to do it with my buddy Lee is even more exciting. I've been a fan of his for a long time. It's gonna definitely be a party every night. I hope the fans are as jacked up about it as we are."

"When we put this tour together we thought about the fans first," says Lee who kicked off 2016 with his own headlining "Life Off My Years" tour after being the only country artist in 2015 to perform in all 50 states. "I love playing live but what’s even more fun is interacting with the amazing people in the
audience. That’s what it’s all about. I can’t wait to get out there to play the songs everyone already
knows but we’re also planning to give these audiences a sneak peek into a few songs off the new record!"

About Justin Moore:

Justin Moore’s long-awaited fourth studio
‘Kinda Don’t Care’ was released in August and earned the singer his third consecutive #1 album debut. It features his current Top 5-and-rising single "You Look Like I Need a Drink." The project is chock-full of new music with 16 tracks on the deluxe version which shot to #1 on the iTunes Country and Billboard Country Albums charts upon release. The Arkansas native spent three years putting the project together, which serves as a follow up to his second #1 album release,
Off The Beaten Path.

Moore holds five #1 singles under his signature white cowboy hat including "Point At You," "Lettin’ The Night Roll" and the Platinum-certified "If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away." He has seven Top 10 hits and sold almost 8 million tracks to date.

The Valory Music Co. recording artist has earned multiple ACM, ACA and ACC Awards nominations including being named the 2014 ACM New Artist of the Year.
USA Today has exclaimed, "he has come to represent the best of a new generation in country music."
This is Moore’s third headlining tour having sold out dates across the country previously for his
Outlaws Like Me and Off The Beaten Path tour stops. Describing his electrifying live show, Billboard said "Fans literally started screaming for the Arkansas native from the beginning notes of "Till My Last Day" and continued all the way through his hit-filled set…"

He has shared the stage with Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert, Hank Williams Jr, Blake Shelton, Eric Church and is currently on the road with Brantley Gilbert once again for the
Take It Outside tour.

About Lee Brice:


With his latest album, ‘I Don’t Dance,’ (9.14) Lee has scored two Billboard Country #1 smashes. "I Don’t Dance" and "Drinking Class," with "That Don’t Sound Like You" earning a Top 10 chart position.
As "one of the finest singer-songwriters country music has to offer" (USA Today), Lee has written songs for artists including Garth Brooks' "More Than a Memory," Tim McGraw's "Still," the Eli Young Band's "Crazy Girl."

Lee Brice released his debut album, ‘Love Like Crazy,’ in 2009. The title track reached #3 on the Billboard Country chart and set a record as the longest-charting song in that chart’s history. In 2012, he topped his own success with ‘Hard 2 Love,’ an album that went Gold and featured three #1 Country singles, including "I Drive Your Truck," which won Song of the Year at both the CMA and ACM Awards. The record earned raves everywhere from NPR to Country Weekly and found the New York Times hailing him as "a sensitive macho man," a compliment that perfectly encapsulates both sides of Brice’s persona. ‘Hard 2 Love’ also garnered Lee his late-night debut with a stirring performance of "I Drive Your Truck" on NBC’s "The Tonight Show."

Brice took it a step further on his latest album, ‘I Don’t Dance’ (9.14), relishing the role of producer with a flair for experimentation, resulting in the album’s title track hitting #1 at radio the week the album came out. Lee can currently be heard alongside long-time friend and label-mate, Jerrod Niemann, on Jerrod’s latest single, "A Little More Love." Lee will continue to tour through the fall while also writing and recording his fourth studio album slated for release in 2017 on Curb Records.

About William Michael Morgan:


Breakout country star William Michael Morgan, who NPR Music praised for his "unreserved sentimentality and easeful, fine-tuned singing approach," will release his debut album Vinyl September 30th on Warner Bros. / Warner Music Nashville. A "Must-Hear Country Album" according to Rolling Stone, the 11-track work produced by hit-maker Scott Hendricks and Jimmy Ritchey features Morgan’s Top 5 and climbing debut radio hit "I Met A Girl." Penned by Sam Hunt, Shane McAnally and Trevor Rosen, it has clocked more than 13 million streams, including 5 million views of its official video, while drawing half a billion in audience since it was introduced. The single also topped SiriusXM’s "The Highway" Top 45 Countdown chart and was touted as a "Country Song of the Summer" by Billboard. Morgan was named an "Artist to Watch" by Pandora Radio, while CMA Close Up declared the 23-year-old Vicksburg, MS native "a leader of a new wave of traditional Country Music singers," noting "Morgan’s voice is unabashedly old-school velvet."

BLAKE, JASON, SAM, KENNY: Left Out of CMA Nominations


This year's nominations for the CMA Awards fulfilled a lot of expectations, but also contained surprises for music insiders.

Noticeably missing from the ballot is Blake Shelton. His latest album, If I'm Honest, has sold a half-million copies, making him the year's top-selling artist so far.

Also missing is Jason Aldean, who's had a steady stream of hits -- as well as a successful tour -- in the qualifying period. Jason hasn't won a CMA award since 2011, when "Do You Wanna Stay," his duet with Kelly Clarkson, was named Musical Event of the Year.

Four-time CMA Entertainer of the Year Kenny Chesney, who grabbed six nominations last year, went unrecognized this year -- in spite of his successful Spread the Love tour.

Sam Hunt had three nominations last year. He is also the first male vocalist to have four number-one singles on Billboard's Country Airplay chart from a debut album, but his name didn't get mentioned today, either.

JAKE OWEN: Tops the Album Chart


Jake Owen's album American Love debuts at the top of Billboard's Top Country Album Chart and number-four on the all-genreBillboard 200 Chart.

He says, “What an awesome feeling to wake up and find out that American Love is the number-one country album. And, I can’t believe that it debuted at number four on the Billboard 200 chart. That’s a first for me and I’m so pumped about that. I poured my heart and soul into making this album and I’m thrilled to know that people like it."

Jake has been on the road performing fair and festival dates and will open for Kenny Chesney's Spread the Love tour Saturday at Ford Field in Detroit. 

GWEN, BLAKE: Watch What Happens Live!


Rumors are flying about Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani planning a romantic wedding, and their NBC bosses are reportedly getting in on the action.

According to Radar Online, producers of The Voice want to turn the country superstar's proposal into must-see TV -- by having him pop the question while the cameras are rolling. A source close to the show says that it could happen, even though Gwen isn't slated to be a regular on season 11. The insider says, "Executives are really pushing for an on-air engagement. They told them both last season that there would be a huge bonus for them if they agreed to get engaged on the show, and of course, the offer still stands."

Gwen will return for season 12, but who knows how long true love can wait.

New Kenny Chesney Single Drops Thursday


Kenny Chesney will release "Setting the World on Fire" -- his much talked-about duet with Pink on Thursday at 4 p.m.

He says, “You can’t conjure a song that captures that feeling of being on the brink like this does. The lyrics are a perfect way of saying it, but when you feel that melody rise, the arrangement picking up momentum -- it’s bigger than you are, and all you want to do is throw yourself against the night. Then when Pink comes in -- well, that just brings this [song] to life."

Kenny's new album, Cosmic Hallelujah, comes out on October 28th. 

We will have it for you first right after 4pm on Thursday so tune in to hear it and we may even go live on Facebook to give you a sample of the new Kenny!
