Gary Allan Releasing New Album Early 2013

Gary Allan.

Gary Allan will be freeing fans with his new record due out early next year! He’ll be releasing “Set You Free” in early 2013. The album will feature his current single “Every Storm (Runs Out Of Rain)”. The album is the follow-up to 2010′s “Get Off On The Pain.” “Every Storm (Runs Out Of Rain)” is a co-write by Gary with Matt Warren and Hillary Lindsey.

On why he waited so long between albums, Gary admitted he was waiting for a change at MCA Nashville. He got his wish earlier this year when Mike Dungan took over the label. MCA Nashville is under the Universal Music Group label.

Preparing For a Hurricane? Download These Storm Savvy Songs!

This post is aimed at (primarily) my fellow Floridians as they anticipate and prepare for Tropical Storm/Hurricane Isaac. All of you who have been through one of these dreaded storms know that when the electricity goes out, it can be days (sometimes weeks) before it is restored. We at Keepin’ It Country thought it would be fun to give you some last minute storm savvy tunes to load on to your iPods. Hey, if you can’t avoid Isaac, welcome him with open arms … and great weather-related music!

Florida Georgia Line Lace Up Their Boots in Support of the Troops

scaled_e1339447503

Country newcomers Florida Georgia Line are proud to join forces with the Boot Campaign in support of the troops. The duo, Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard, have pledged their commitment to the cause by putting on their own combat boots to literally “take a walk in a soldier’s shoes.”

For the band, this is a cause that hits close to home. “Anything that we can do to help our soldiers past, present and future and their families, we are thankful to be a part of. This cause really hits close to home; my uncle and cousin both served overseas and my grandfather was awarded two purple hearts during his active duty. We are proud to be a part of The Boot Campaign and thrilled to have them on the road with us for the Country Throwdown Tour. We hope to see all the country fans at the show put their boots on and join us in supporting our veterans as they return home,” says Kelley.

Florida Georgia Line is in good company, as other celebrity supporters of the Boot Campaign include Dolly Parton, The Rock, FX’s Cast of Sons Of Anarchy, Troy Aikman, Brantley Gilbert, Eli Young Band, George Jones and Gary Allan. Supporters of the cause purchase boots, with all proceeds going to military charities, to put on in order to “symbolically walk in the shoes of our military men and women to remember their service and sacrifice.”

Florida Georgia Line is currently speeding up the charts with their debut single “Cruise,” from their new EP It’z Just What We Do. For more information on Florida Georgia Line and tour dates, visit www.FloridaGeorgiaLine.com.

Florida Georgia Line Cruisin’ Up the Country Charts

Florida-Georgia-Line

They may be a new name in country music, but the guys of Florida Georgia Line (FGL)  are quickly cruising up the country radio charts with their first single “Cruise.” The country rock duo’s summertime anthem has already hit the Top 50 on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart, selling over 20,000 copies in just seven weeks.  

“Cruise” is featured on their new Big Loud Mountain EP “It’z Just What We Do” produced by Joey Moi (Jake Owen, Nickelback). The EP debuted at number 35 on Billboard’s Country Albums Chart and the EP is available at all digital retailers.

“Cruise” was written by FGL’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley along with Joey Moi, Chase Rice and Jesse Rice and is quickly becoming a fan favorite during live shows. It has received rave reviews from critics and country radio. SiriusXM recently named the track a Highway Find and Music Row Magazine awarded the track the Discovery Award. The mag describes the song, saying, “After an a cappella intro, this takes off like a speedboat on a glassy lake. The track is rushing and wooshing, and the voices are sprightly. What more do you want? Get on board.” American Songwriter notes, “…it’s likely already attached itself into the heads of everyone who’s listened to it…” 
 
This up and coming duo will be cruising across the U.S. all summer long with the 2012 Country Throwdown Tour with Gary Allan, Rodney Atkins, and Justin Moore.

EXCLUSIVE: Interview With Jason Charles Miller

Untitled

Jason Charles Miller is definitely not your ordinary urban cowboy. Rather, he represents the dark, gritty side of country music – the type of country music that should receive more acknowledgement than it does.

Regardless, this Virginia native knows his way around the entertainment industry. Although he might be most known for heading the rock band Godhead, Jason has travelled many paths throughout his life. His impressive resume includes writing, producing, voiceover recording and acting. If that wasn’t enough, Jason is busy overseeing his own recording studio, Central Command Studios.

We caught up with Jason today to talk about the release of his new single “Up To Me,” his recent signing with Render Records, how he feels about the music industry and what he has to offer.

We can promise you that this man has a mind and heart evident in both his thoughts and music that any country music fan could appreciate and love. Take a look for yourself:
