Jason Aldean On Wife: “She Keeps Me Grounded”

Posted on: April 22nd, 2015 by Chris

Jason Aldean just took home another Male Vocalist of the Year at the ACM Awards on Sunday (April 19), and where a lot of people may be riding high on the moment Jason says his wife, Brittany Kerr, keeps him grounded.

He told People Magazine in the press room after the show, “She keeps me a little more focused and grounded, which is what I need in my life for sure.”

As for the timing of the show, it fell a day after their first month of being husband and wife, most of which has been spent on the road. “Yesterday was a month in. It’s been great, we’ve been on the road pretty much the whole time since we got married. We’ve gone all over the country and Europe for 10 days.”

The two were married in a surprise ceremony in Mexico this past March.

Joe Nichols At Work On New Music

Posted on: April 21st, 2015 by Chris

Joe Nichols is spending as much time in the studio as possible between tour dates, working on his next album. So far, he’s got six songs recorded, and he thinks four could be radio hits.

Joe tells The Arizona Republic, “We’ll probably cut 20, maybe more than 20, and then we’ll narrow it down to our favorite 13 to 15 songs and go from there. But I think we’ve got an incredible start and I think the next single will be off the next album.”

One thing you can be sure of, Joe won’t be hopping into the trend of rapping or dropping a dance beat into any of the songs. He says he’s committed to continuing the country sound from his latest album, ‘Crickets’, which produced the #1 hits “Sunny and 75″ and “Yeah.”

Joe plays Juana’s Pagodas and Sailor’s Grill’s Beach Blast on May 9. Get your tickets here!

So excited to watch the premiere of my new movie #DixieLand this weekend at the Tribeca Film Festival! #TFF2015

Pensacola Symphony season finale

Posted on: April 13th, 2015 by brent

Join the Pensacola Symphony on Saturday April 25th at 8pm in the Saenger Theatre as we close the season with a mighty performance that will feature the newly restored “Great Saenger Pipe Organ” with Saint-Saëns’ Third Symphony.

 

The program opens with Fountains of Rome by Italian composer Ottorino Respighi. It is the first of three tone poems in his “Roman trilogy” and is his most performed piece throughout concert halls. Respighi captures the beauty of four Roman fountains, each represented in its own movement at a specific point in the day – featured are the fountains of Valle Giulia (at Dawn)Triton (at Morn)Trevi (at Midday), and Villa Medici (at Sunset).

 

Following, the Orchestra will perform Atlantic Riband by guest composer Kenneth Fuchs. The piece was inspired by the great ships of the 20th century, specifically the “Blue Riband” – the ship crossed the North Atlantic from New York and still holds its achievement for the fastest transatlantic voyage. Fuchs stated, “…the work expresses the energy and optimism – as well as the foreboding, mystery, and danger – of the ocean-going enterprise.”

 

Finally, the evening will end on a triumphant note with a spectacular performance of Saint-Saëns’ Third Symphony, featuring the Saenger pipe organ on its first orchestral piece since renovation. The PSO will be among the first to perform with the 1925 Robert “Wonder Morton”, which has been unusable since damaged by the floodwaters of Ivan in 2004. In addition to the console, thousands of pipes had up be repaired or replaced – including some as tall as 16ft. After restoration, it will rival great theatre organs around the country, even the one located at Radio City Music Hall.

 

Prior to the concert on April 25, there will be a matinee dress rehearsal beginning at 2PM. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the Palafox entrance of the Saenger Theatre. At 7PM there will be a pre-concert lecture. It’s a great opportunity to learn more about the music. Both events are free with your concert ticket.

 

Tickets start at only $22 – available at pensacolasymphony.com, by phone at 850-435-2533, and at the Saenger Theatre, on the corner of Palafox and Intendencia.
