Video: Keith Urban Performs New Single on American Idol

keith-urban-post

Keith Urban was pulling double duty on American Idol tonight. Our country judge took the stage during the finale to perform his new single, “Little Bit Of Everything” and he sounded great! Check out the video below to watch the performance.

Urban joined the Idol panel this season, and while there have been rumors that the show is cleaning house, there is no official word yet on Urban’s status.

People.com reported that at a press conference on Wednesday, the country superstar stated that he wanted to return as a judge next year:

“I would. I mean, I literally enjoy coming to work every day, and that’s a rarity.”

We would love to see KU back at the judges’ table for Season 13! We hope Idol leaves the decision up to him. While Randy Jackson and Nicki Minaj will not be returning to the panel, there is no official word yet on Mariah Carey.

Lady A’s Hillary Scott had this to share about the new song:

“There’s some sass to this track that makes it really fun to sing…it’s definitely a roll down the windows and bob your head kind of thing. We thought it was a fun way to launch the next record and a fitting preview of what’s to come!”

New Music From Gretchen Wilson

340

Grammy Award-winning artist, Gretchen Wilson, is back in full force and has plenty of new music set to be released this year!

In 2009, Wilson formed her own record company, Redneck Records. Her first album release under her label was her I Got Your Country Right Here CD. The record included the song (and one of my personal Gretchen favorites), “I’d Love To Be Your Last,” and garnered two Grammy nominations.

Wilson’s new album, Right On Time, will hit stores on April 2nd and will feature the single, “Still Rollin.'” The song, penned by Wilson and Vicky McGehee, ships to radio this week.

 

The critically acclaimed singer/songwriter is very excited for her upcoming releases:

 I am very excited to have so much new music coming out this year… We are already touring, and are looking forward to an incredible year with old friends, and new beginnings!

On May 28th, Wilson will also be releasing an album of classic 70s rock hits entitled Under The Covers. And if that isn’t enough new music for all of you fans, she is releasing a full-length Christmas album in October.

We are happy to have all of this Gretchen music to look forward to!

Jason Aldean Releases New Single to iTunes Today

Jason Aldean Take A Little Ride
Today is the day that Jason Aldean fans have been waiting for! If you’ve worn out your copy of My Kinda Party like we have, there’s no doubt you’ve been itching for new music from Jason. On the heels of five consecutive lead singles, Jason’s new track “Take A Little Ride” hits iTunes today and will be available in Walmart stores on August 7.

The track was written by Dylan Altman, Rodney Clawson and Jim McCormick. It’s typical Aldean with a distinct electric sound, perfect for a summer night tailgate or BBQ.

“Everyone has been asking if the new album is going to be different from the ‘My Kinda Party’ album,” said Aldean. “I tried to find the best songs that I could and also ones that fit what I do in my live show. There’s a little bit of everything, including some more traditional country stuff and some songs that might raise a few eyebrows. I thought this would be a great lead single to come with after ‘Fly Over States’…it’s about grabbing your girl and getting lost in the country. Sounds like a pretty good Friday night to me!”

Make sure to grab it on iTunes today! For more information on upcoming appearances and new music, please visit www.jasonaldean.com

She may be on the Gang of Outlaws Tour with ZZ Top & 3 Doors Down, but NRA Country Artist of the month, Gretchen Wilson, still has her roots firmly planted in country music. Her new single “One Good Friend” hit iTunes today and will be sent to radio soon.

 The single was written by Bekka Bramlett, Billy Burnette and Dennis Morgan, and produced by Gretchen and Blake Chancey. Chancey co-produced her last CD, I Got Your Country Right Here, which yielded the Grammy-nominated “I’d Love To Be Your Last.”

The single was love at first listen for Gretchen. “The first time I heard this song it blew me away. “The lyric hit me really hard, and fans at the ZZ Top shows are telling me it’s doing the same thing to them.”

Although she may seem a bit of an outcast on her current tour, Gretchen has nothing but raves about her current gig. “It’s been a blast out there,” she added. “People are coming up to me and saying, ‘I’ve never heard of you, but I’m buying all of your music!’ This has been a great opportunity to get out and hit a totally new audience.”
 
The tour will run through the end of June, and fans of Gretchen can purchase an exclusive VIP package that includes an exclusive meet & greet with Gretchen on her tour bus, a VIP-Only Laminate, a guaranteed ticket in one of the first 15 rows of the concert, one-of-a-kind Gretchen Wilson Box Set, personal photo taken with Gretchen, and an autographed copy of her critically acclaimed I Got Your Country Right Here album.

REVIEW: Dierks Bentley, “Home”

2983_dierks_bentley

Country star, Dierks Bentley, recently released the follow-up to his hit number one single, “Am I The Only One.” His new song, “Home,” is the second single off of his upcoming album of the same title. Bentley co-wrote the track with Dan Wilson and Brett Beavers.

The song was initially inspired by the tragic shooting surrounding Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords that took place in Arizona last January. Giffords was severely injured, 12 people were hurt, and 6 people lost their lives. “Home” was made the official song by Arizona’s Centennial Commission for the state’s 100-year celebration.

In an interview with All Things Considered host Melissa Block, Arizona native, Bentley, explained:

“I think the first thing I thought of when we started writing it was the shooting that happened in Tucson, Ariz., with [U.S. Rep.] Gabby Giffords. That had happened about four days earlier. That, for me, my home state — that invokes so many different feelings of anger and questions of why. And also, of course, the healing process. It all kind of came together in this song.”

“Home ” addresses patriotism in a heartfelt and honest manner. It recognizes our nation’s struggles and hardships as well as acknowledges people’s flaws while displaying hope for a better future. The underlying tone of the song unquestionably lies in sentiment of love and loyalty to our country.  Bentley’s smooth country drawl on top of the raw and melodic sound of the track match perfectly with the powerful message of the song.

Review: Jared Blake, “Don’t Mind”

Jared Blake

Jared Blake has worked with Gretchen Wilson, Big & Rich, and the Goo Goo Dolls, but he gained public notoriety this past summer as a contestant on the NBC talent competition, The Voice. Blake was a part of the four-member Blake Shelton team, until Shelton ultimately chose Dia Frampton and Xenia Martinez to move forward into the final rounds.

Now, Blake is back with a new single titled, “Don’t Mind.” The song is a perfect match for his soulful, country rock voice.
