Sneak Peek of Upcoming Album Release

The only artist and athlete since Chris LeDoux to not only compete but also perform at the world’s largest outdoor rodeo, Cheyenne Frontier Days, Chancey Williams, proves to be the next cowboy of country music. Before pursuing country music professionally, Williams was a saddle bronc rider, following in his father's footsteps. Growing up on a ranch in the Cowboy State (Wyoming), Williams learned the importance of strong family values and a hard work ethic, both of which now serve as influences for his music.

Chancey Williams and The Younger Brothers Band released their prior studio album, Echo, in 2013, which charted on Billboard Heatseekers Albums. In July 2015, the group released the single for “Down With That," which earned the 2016 Rocky Mountain CMA Song of the Year award. The video (below), which was later released, amassed over 180k views on YouTube.

No strangers to the road, Williams and The Younger Brothers Band spend most of their time touring, having opened for legends (Chris LeDoux, Alabama, Merle Haggard, Dwight Yoakam)and current country mainstays alike (Old Dominion, Toby Keith, Billy Currington, Eli Young Band, Aaron Watson). Most recently, the band had the honor of performing the opening ceremony at the Thomas and Mack Center for the "superbowl of rodeo," 2016 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (WNFR).

The ten-song collection, Rodeo Cold Beer, which Williams collaborated on with Nashville singer-songwriters such as Trent Willmon (Eric Church, Little Big Town, Brad Paisley), is scheduled for full release tomorrow, Friday, May 19. With a distinct twang and gritty vibrato, Williams’ classic country voice puts a stamp of authenticity on the various stories of love, endurance, brotherhood and soul searching found on the album.

The title track, “Rodeo Cold Beer," serves as a motto for Williams and desperado cowboys alike who endure long hours of travel on the rodeo circuit only to ride, finish the day with a cold beer and fall victim to the life of the open road all over again.

The 2016 Rocky Mountain CMA Song of the Year, “Down With That,” provides a smooth groove over which Williams depicts a guy who's playing it cool by being down with whatever his girl has in mind for a carefree summer night, which anyone can relate to and get down with.

The seductive and sultry single, “Silhouette,” penned by Josh Thompson (“Any Ol’ Barstool”), paints a magic and magnetic picture of a couple melting into one another in a romantic embrace until its “two hearts, one silhouette.”

Thefinal and slower-tempoed track, “Whatever I’m Looking For,”finds Williams in a reflective, introspective assessment of his life, wondering if chasing his lofty dreams of gold buckles and platnum records is worth the sacrifices and all he leaves behind in his rear view mirror.

About Chancey Williams and The Younger Brothers Band:

Saddle bronc rider turned country singer-songwriter, Chancey Williams has gone from competing on horseback to performing on center stage at major rodeos. The only artist besides Chris LeDoux to both ride and entertain at the world’s “Daddy of ‘Em All” rodeo, Cheyenne Frontier Days, Williams is the authentic next cowboy of country music. Growing up on a ranch in the Cowboy State (Wyoming), Williams learned the cowboy-way-of-life from his father, and like his dad, Williams found himself a successful bronc rider, winning the National High School Rodeo Finals, the College National Finals and a couple rounds at Cheyenne Frontier Days. In 2013 Chancey Williams and the Younger Brothers Band released their first album, Echo, which graced the Billboard Heatseekers Chart. In July 2015, the group released the single for “Down With That," which earned the 2016 Rocky Mountain CMA Song of the Year award. The “Down With That” music video amassed over 180k views on YouTube. Williams and the Younger Brothers Band have opened for their heroes (Chris LeDoux, Merle Haggard, Alabama, Dwight Yoakam), as well as several current mainstream country acts (Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church). Presently, the band readies to release their sophomore album, Rodeo Cold Beer, on May 19.

KIP MOORE REFLECTS ON EXTENDED BREAK WITH CONDE NAST TRAVELER AS HE BRINGS “HIGH-ENERGY PARTY" BACK TO THE UK THIS FALL

Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter Kip Moore is looking forward, following an extended break earlier this year, spotlighted in an exclusive feature by Conde Nast Traveler. A relentless road warrior, Moore is getting back into the touring groove following trips to Costa Rica, Iceland, Australia and more, announcing today that he will return to the U.K this fall for a stint of headlining shows. The announcement is sure to be welcomed by Moore’s fervent international fanbase, with his previous headlining shows last spring selling out months in advance, prompting the move to bigger venues and inspiring unforgettable, impromptu post-show jams in the streets.

Moore has also invited Drake White and The Big Fire out on the highly-anticipated run, that will stop in Birmingham, UK (10/2), Manchester, UK (10/3), Glasgow, UK (10/4) and culminate in a special show as part of Country Music Week in London, UK at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on 10/6. Country Music Week is a brand new week-long series of shows, created by the organizers of the hugely successful Country To Country music festival. Moore first connected with fans during his debut performance as part of the festival two years ago, when he turned heads as he "led the 20,000-capacity through a singalong” (Rolling Stone Country.) Tickets to the shows will go on sale on Friday 19th May at 9am GMT here.

2017 is picking up momentum fast for Moore, as he will also return to Ireland later this summer for Harvest 2017, stopping in Westport, IE (8/26) and Enniskillen, IE (8/27.) Co-written by Moore, his new single “More Girls Like You,” and the lead single from his upcoming third album, is the fastest rising single of his career so far. The track is receiving praise from critics such as Taste Of Country, who notes the track “doubles down on a heavy, thumping formula he relied on to create one of the best country albums of 2015” and Entertainment Weekly declaring he “has made a name for himself weaving vignettes of Southern, blue-collar life and love into rollicking country anthems.” As he "consistently serves up clever roots-rock riffs and rhythms that separate Moore from the rock-meets-rap focus of his Nashville peers" (Associated Press), the release of "More Girls Like You" follows the acclaim that surrounded his sophomore album WILD ONES heralded as "an impressively singular release from Music Row" by The Guardian. Moore first turned heads with his debut album UP ALL NIGHT which was certified GOLD by the RIAA and spawned three No. One hit singles including GOLD certified "Beer Money," PLATINUM certified "Hey Pretty Girl," and the DOUBLE PLATINUM breakout hit "Somethin' 'Bout A Truck. Following an extended break, Moore is back out on the road playing some of country music’s biggest festivals this year, most recently at Stagecoach in California. This follows a recent trip to Australia where he was met by a staggering fan base, as well as a characteristically stacked touring schedule last year as he completed his fiercely successful WILD ONES TOUR, that he also unleashed across the pond for headlining sold-out dates in the UK and Ireland.

MOTHER-DAUGHTER COUNTRY DUO BELLES & WHISTLES CELEBRATED MOTHER'S DAY WITH THE RELEASE OF THEIR MUSIC VIDEO "FIRE"

Following the exclusive premiere on Whiskey Riff, mother-daughter duo Belles & Whistles announce the release of the music video for their latest single "Fire". Featuring lead singer and daughter Kelli as the protagonist getting "burned" by a troublesome love interest, the music video for "Fire" shows just how intense and explosive a relationship with a "bad boy" can be. Complete with scenes of uncontrollable flames and the Belles & Whistles adorning fire suits in safeguard of their hearts, the video is a powerful display of the play on words "never play with fire."

While achieving national attention, the Omaha-native duo makes sure to maintain close connections with their local community. In the wake of a tragic police shooting and in honor of International Firefighters' Day, Belles & Whistles performed "Fire" at the Council Bluffs fire station last Thursday, which helped to raise spirits and thank the first responders for their service.

Mother Jaymie and dauther Kelli formed Belles & Whistles in 2013, but have been singing harmonies together in the Jones household since Kelli’s childhood. Currently, having won the title of “Best Country Artists” from the Omaha Entertainment & Arts Awards for the last three consecutive years, Belles & Whistles are now expanding beyond their hometown and making their names known nationally. The duo have opened for notable country artists, including Old Dominion, Brett Eldredge, Lee Brice and Kenny Rogers. Belles & Whistles released their debut six-song EP, Look Up, which features the single "Fire," in September 2016.

About Belles & Whistles: Omaha-natives, Kelli and Jaymie Jones, formed Belles & Whistles in 2013, but the dynamic duo started playing music together during Kelli's childhood. The mother-daughter act, known for their rich harmonies and meaningful lyrics, are a little bit country and a little bit rock 'n' roll, with Jaymie bringing her roots from the 1999 group Mulberry Lane (formerly of Refuge/MCA Records). The group's hit song, "Harmless," placed Top 25 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart. After Mulberry Lane came to an end, Jaymie began to play on her own locally with Kelli soon singing backup. Now, Belles & Whistles have shared the stage with country music mainstays, such as Lee Brice, Old Dominion, Brett Eldridge, Kenny Rogers, and more and have won the title of "Best Country Artist" for the Omaha Entertainment & Arts Awards three years running. Their debut EP, Look Up, was recorded at the prestigious Legends Studio in Nashville and produced by Dan Frizsell (Lee Brice, American Young).
