Hillary Scott Recording With Her Family

Posted on: November 25th, 2015 by Chris

Lady Antebellum may be taking a break as a group, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t working. With Charles Kelley recording a solo album and doing some touring to support it, Hillary Scott has been at work too, working on a different music project.

Scott shared a photo of herself in the studio to Instagram recently:

On Friday (November 20), her mother, singer Linda Davis, told Nashville’s ‘The Tennessean’ newspaper that Hillary is currently working on a gospel project with her mother, father and younger sister. Linda has had her own successful singing career, winning a Grammy and CMA Award for “Does He Love You,” her duet with Reba McEntire.

“As parents, it’s so fun to be able to be involved in a project with both of our children,” she says. “It’s a dream we didn’t even know to dream about that’s fallen into place.”

Ricky Skaggs is producing the album, which was inspired when the family performed together at Jim Ed Brown‘s funeral over the summer.

Did Gwen Say She Loves Blake Shelton?

Posted on: November 24th, 2015 by Chris

It was a couple of weeks ago Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani confirmed there was something going on between them. While stories vary and signals are mixed Gwen is admitting that she loves him….kind of.

Gwen was being interviewed by ‘Entertainment Tonight’ during a promo for ‘The Voice’ alongside Adam Levine, when the duo was asked what qualities they were thankful for in each of their fellow coaches.

There’s been no response from Blake but, there’s a good chance that if he does have something to say it will be on Twitter and will be addressed in his own, unique way.

Sam Hunt Finding Material For Second Album A Challenge

Posted on: November 23rd, 2015 by Chris

Sam Hunt is currently working on his sophomore album, but he admits that he’s having trouble with it.

When he wrote his debut disc, ’Montevallo’, he was living life largely out of the spotlight, and inspiration came a lot more easily; ”I was writing about my life at that moment and the years prior,” he tells Rolling Stone Country. But now that he has a No. 1 album, a slew of hit songs and a legion of devoted fans, life is extremely different, and it’s a bit of a double-edged sword: The recognition and awards nominations are great, but it can be hard to pull inspiration from “regular” life when you’re living out of a suitcase on tour.

“Now I am living a completely different lifestyle,” he continues. ”I am trying to draw inspiration from that, but it’s pretty much been stages and hotel rooms for the past two years. So I’m trying to figure out right now exactly what I want to say and what I want my voice to be for the second record.”

Miracle on Palafox – Raises over $15,000

Posted on: November 23rd, 2015 by brent

This year for Christmas Wishes, we are assisting United Way in helping needy children have toys under their Christmas tree.  It started with an idea…  What if we could raise thousands of dollars and fulfill more toy wishes this year?  The United Way says that Christmas 2015 will likely see the largest number of kids in need but there are fewer organizations who are able to help.

Next we came up with how we could do it… Have a Concert!  William Michael MorganMo Pitney and SCOTTY MCCREERY all agreed to come to Pensacola and donate their talent to the show.

Next…  how do we get a location that can hold enough people to make a difference?  That’s where Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union came in.  Gulf Winds has underwritten the cost of doing a concert event at the Saenger Theater on Palafox. Thanks to the generosity of Gulf Winds, all of the proceeds of the show go directly to United Way to help some needy children have something under their Christmas tree.

The result?  We raised over $15,072 to be distributed by the United Way!

United Way Escambia County is the fiscal agent. Florida Solicitation of Contributions Act# CH746.

Jason Aldean Promises New Music In The New Year

Posted on: November 20th, 2015 by Chris

Jason Aldean is ready to bring new music to fans in the new year. He says he’s headed back into the studio to work on the follow-up to his 2014′s ‘Old Boots, New Dirt.’

“Hopefully a new single [will be out] some time in the spring and album in the summer,” he recently said.

While he didn’t reveal any of the songs he’s been working on, he did say the album will be more rock-heavy than ‘Old Boots, New Dirt.’

“We didn’t really have any big, rock tempo records for this record. Honestly, that’s one thing we were lacking,” he admits. “It was more vibe-y than the big tempo stuff we always had. The new album has a lot of the big tempos, a lot more rock-oriented stuff on this next one.”

A new album brings the promise of a new tour, and one thing he wants to stay away from this time around, fire.

“I got a year and a half in without getting burned real bad,” he says of his ‘Burn It Down Tour’. “I had a couple sparks go down my shirt. I’m over the flames at this point. Maybe we’ll get some snowflakes on stage. Figure that out.”

Tyler Farr was at Brickstreet Bar in Oxford, OH on Wednesday (November 18) when he took ill. According to Brickstreet Bar management, Tyler felt sick not long after his band had set up for the show and completed sound check. He felt bad enough they took him to the emergency room.

Reports had him spitting up blood and experiencing “head cold” conditions. Sources say he was diagnosed with bronchitis and acute tonsillitis. He’ll reschedule any missed dates.
