Kathy Mattea Readies Pretty Bird For September Release

Artist: Kathy Mattea Album: Pretty Bird Label: Captain Potato Release date: September 9, 2018

Active since 1984 as a recording artist, she has charted more than thirty singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, including four that reached No. 1: "Goin' Gone", "Eighteen Wheels and a Dozen Roses", "Come from the Heart", and "Burnin' Old Memories", plus twelve more that charted within the top ten. She has released fourteen studio albums, two Christmas albums, and one greatest hits album. Most of her material was recorded for Universal Music Group Nashville's Mercury Records Nashville division between 1984 and 2000, with later albums being issued on Narada Productions, her own Captain Potato label, and Sugar Hill Records.

Now word has been released (or at least teased on Amazon) that Mattea will be using that Captain Potato label to release an all-new album this September called Pretty Bird. Details are scarce on the project, but her last two projects, Coal and Calling Me Home, were brilliant- and this goes to the top of what we're anticipating for the second half of the year.

BILLY RAY CYRUS RELEASES "THE GODDESS OF DEMOCRACY"

On this Independence Day, Billy Ray Cyrus released "The Goddess of Democracy," a rousing and thought-provoking anthem as he reflects on the current events in the U.S.

In an exclusive premiere with Parade.com, Billy Ray Cyrus shared: "On this #4thofJuly I wanted to share this thought from my new band. It's a sneak peek only up for 24 hours. Hope this brings some perspective and stimulates patriotism and loyalty to our beloved America."

The prolific and dynamic lyrics are written by Cyrus, Don Von Tress and John Brennan:

Talk about freedom boys Wouldn't you love to have some now When you gonna make that choice The golden calf or the sacred cow?

The paranoia of prophecies Require we sedate So I hid my dreams and memories Before it got too late I won't deny I liked to cried I guess it was her fate

The Goddess of Democracy Burning at the stake

TEGAN MARIE’S EMPOWERING “I KNOW HOW TO MAKE A BOY CRY” VIDEO MAKES ITS BROADCAST PREMIERE EXCLUSIVELY ON CMT

Warner Music Nashville and Sweety High Country sensation TEGAN MARIE premiered the empowering, Elvis-inspired video for her new song, “I Know How To Make A Boy Cry,” across CMT, the 24/7 digital music channel CMT Music and CMT.com.

In conjunction with the exclusive broadcast premiere, the video will be available across multiple media platforms.

Directed by Veronica Zelle, the liberating video serves as a tip of the hat to Elvis Presley’s iconic 1968 Comeback Special, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. Set to the sound of her upbeat self-worth anthem – all about inner strength and holding your head high when young love turns sour – 14-year-old Tegan Marie flips the script on an artist who famously made girls weep everywhere he went. Now it’s her turn to make the boys cry.

“I just love Elvis, that’s about the size of it,” says Tegan Marie. "I recently visited Graceland and it all just clicked. I got to understand him more, beyond the music. I was most moved by how much he cared for people. When my managers suggested we make a video as an homage to Elvis for my new song, it was an automatic yes!"

“I Know How To Make A Boy Cry” was produced by studio heavyweights Scott Hendricks (Blake Shelton) and Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift) – marking the first time the Platinum-selling pair have teamed up. Tegan Marie will keep working with the duo as she creates her first album.

Last Saturday (6/23), Tegan Marie showed off another aspect of her undeniable stage presence, taking part in the 2018 Radio Disney Music Awards with Mason Ramsey to present the award for The Freshest! - Radio Disney Country Best New Artist.

Tegan Marie then wowed fans of the MLB’s Los Angeles Dodgers with a flawless rendition of the national anthem before Tuesday night’s (6/26) game versus the Chicago Cubs. And looking ahead, the Michigan native will continueed her busy performance schedule with her eighth Grand Ole Opry appearance), plus a summer full of shows from Colorado to Connecticut on her first nationwide tour.

ABOUT TEGAN MARIE: With a larger-than-life voice, Tegan Marie, 14, was discovered by girls’ media platform Sweety High when her family started uploading her videos at age 7. Featured as a Radio Disney Country artist, she catapulted into the national spotlight when her breathtaking rendition of Florida Georgia Line’s "H.O.L.Y." received over 20M views online. Tegan Marie went on to a string of critically acclaimed performances at Stagecoach, Good Morning America, the Grand Ole Opry and on stage with Smokey Robinson for The Gershwin Prize broadcast on PBS. As her videos continued to gain a wide audience (over 100M views), Tegan Marie shared the stage with artists such as Cam, Hunter Hayes and Kelsea Ballerini while partnering with Pepsi for a tour across the Midwest. In 2017, at age 13, she became the youngest female artist signed to a major Country label (Warner Music Nashville) in over 45 years. She has since made her debut at the Ryman Auditorium, played the TODAY show and was featured on the 2018 watch lists for Billboard, Rolling Stone and Huffington Post. Following the release her new song, “I Know How To Make A Boy Cry,” she’s hard at work creating new music with hitmakers Scott Hendricks (Blake Shelton) and Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift).
