Tim Elliott Sends Reminder "I Got You" With New Single Now Available

Two-time North Carolina Artist of the Year, Tim Elliott, has dropped a new single, “I Got You” to Country radio and digital retailers. The blue-collar Country artist, who has built a solid touring foundation across the Southeast, commented about the new release, stating, “It’s almost overwhelming to see my little song connect with people so soon. Just today, a new fan from New Jersey sent me a Facebook message that said ‘Thank you for this song, my husband got out of bed tonight and asked me to dance.’ Those are the moments that make all this hard work really mean something.” The single made it to the Top 5 Most Added on MusicRow’s CountryBreakout Chart on the day of its release. “I Got You” is now available through The Orchard/Sony (available here). The single is the first ballad from Elliott, following his two up-tempo singles “Start Pourin’ Whiskey On It” and “What’s Not To Love,” both released in 2017. “I Got You” was written by Tim Elliott and Bill Diluigi and produced by Grammy-nominated, Kent Wells. Through his previous releases, Elliott has garnered over one million streams through Spotify. His music incorporates a diverse range of musical tastes and influences, including Hank Williams Sr., Frank Sinatra, and Sammy Davis. Elliott is the two-time winner of Country Artist of the Year for the Carolina Music Awards, in which both North and South Carolina are included. He has toured the country performing over 200 dates. This year alone, he’s opened shows for Chris Young, Dustin Lynch, Frankie Ballard, Rodney Atkins, Tracy Lawrence, Kane Brown, Sammy Kershaw and others. Fans can also expect to hear more music from Tim Elliott on his EP, to be released this year. Tim Elliott is the grandson of a West Virginia coal miner who also had a heart for music. The backbreaking, dirty work didn’t stifle Elliott’s grandfather’s pursuit of playing music and serves as the backdrop of Elliott’s story; Bluegrass jam sessions were a regular occurrence on Saturday nights. Elliott mastered the acoustic guitar at the age of eight and banjo, mandolin and keyboard followed. Over the last few months, Elliott has traveled the country on a radio tour in support of the single release. Most recently, the Boone, North Carolina-native has visited Iowa, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Tennessee, New York, and Connecticut. He plans to continue traveling and visiting new stations in 2018. “I am really looking forward to kicking off the “I Got You” radio tour. I have met so many great people across the country. I look forward to revisiting my radio friends and making new ones!” said Tim. Elliott is one of the founding members of Matthew 25:35, Inc., a non-profit organization which raises money to assist people in the community with a specific emphasis on feeding the hungry. He is also a passionate advocate for Cohn’s disease awareness; a disease that affects over 200,000 people each year in the US.

RASCAL FLATTS RETURN TO THE ROAD THIS SUMMER WITH DYNAMIC BACK TO US TOUR INCLUDING SPECIAL GUESTS DAN + SHAY AND CARLY PEARCE

Known as one of the hottest-selling touring acts with over 10 million tickets sold, superstar vocal group Rascal Flatts revealed today that they will hit the road this summer for their headlining BACK TO US TOUR kicking off in Hartford, CT. Groundbreakers within the genre themselves, as well as established tastemakers where “the road has been where the band has done some of their most inspiring work over the years” (Billboard) encouraging and helping break artists following in their footsteps, the trio has invited chart-toppers Dan + Shay and Carly Pearce to join them this summer. The stacked headlining tour has been highly anticipated by fans excited to hear the group’s 17 career No. Ones and more, following their successful sold-out residency in Las Vegas last year. Fans can purchase tickets beginning Jan. 26 for select cities as part of Live Nation’s Country Megaticket at www.Megaticket.com. Live Nation is the national tour promoter.

“I can’t describe how much we are looking forward to the tour this summer!” said Gary LeVox. “We’ve been lucky enough to be in a position to tour consistently throughout our career, and last year felt like the perfect time to reset as we focused on the release of our 10th album. Coming back this year and with our friends Dan + Shay, who are some of the best guys around, as well as Carly who had an amazing year last year, makes it all the more exciting! It’s going to be an awesome time for us and the fans!”

A force to be reckoned with in any genre, ‪Rascal Flatts recently released their tenth studio album, BACK TO US (Big Machine Records), heralded by Rolling Stone as "the band is returning to their sweet spot,” as well as back-to-back chart topping singles “Yours If You Want It” and “I Like The Sound Of That." Time and success have only put the trio closer to their core on BACK TO US, their LP that's both a return to form and a proclamation of everything that this trio has come to represent over nearly two decades. And that's expert musicianship, razorsharp vocals and songs that have shaped lives, loves and the genre of country music itself. Known as the best-selling country vocal group of the past decade, Rascal Flatts has sold over 23.4 million albums, over 34.3 million digital downloads worldwide, as well as earning over 40 trophies from the ACA, ACM, AMA, CMA, People's Choice and more, also making them the most awarded country group of the past decade.

About Dan + Shay: Dan + Shay's sophomore album Obsessed, featuring their most recent No. 1 single, “How Not To,” debuted earlier this year and follows their 2014 Where It All Began, which made them the first new country duo in SoundScan recorded history to debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Albums Chart. The album included the Platinum-certified debut single, “19 You + Me” and their first No. 1 single, “Nothin’ Like You,” which earned RIAA Gold certification. Their first single off Obsessed, "From The Ground Up" also earned RIAA Platinum certification and marked their second to hit the top of the charts. They have earned four consecutive nominations for both ACM Vocal Duo of the Year and CMA’s Vocal Duo of the Year award as well as nods for an American Country Countdown Awards, CMT Awards, and Radio Disney Music Awards. In 2017 Dan + Shay headlined their Obsessed Tour and joined Thomas Rhett for several dates on his Home Team Tour. For more information and tour dates, please visit DanAndShay.com and follow @DanandShay on Twitter and Instagram.

About Carly Pearce: With her GOLD-certified No. 1 “Every Little Thing,” Kentucky native Carly Pearce scored the highest charting solo female debut since July 2015 and joined an elite group of only three women to accomplish this feat in the past 12 years. Carly’s textured vocals and emotive songwriting prowess are emphasized on the Big Machine Records album recorded with sought-after producer busbee, which Uproxx hailed “the best country debut of 2017” and features the blockbuster title track plus new single “Hide the Wine.” Back-to-back chart-toppers on SiriusXM’s The Highway helped solidify Carly in their Class of 2017. The CMT Next Women of Country alum was named to multiple 2017 Ones To Watch Lists as People touted her “the new voice of Country,” and Brett Young invited her on a sold-out run. The new year continues the trajectory, landing Carly to the esteemed 2018 CRS New Faces and Pandora Artist to Watch as well as dates with Blake Shelton’s COUNTRY MUSIC FREAKS, Thomas Rhett’s LIFE CHANGES and Rascal Flatts’ BACK TO US tours.

SHENANDOAH JOINS ADKINS PUBLICITY ROSTER

GRAMMY®, CMA and ACM-winning country music trailblazers, Shenandoah, join the ADKINS PUBLICITY roster for national and Nashville representation in advance of their highly-anticipated new album set for release this March via BMG.

Shenandoah, which includes founding members Marty Raybon and Mike McGuire, continues captivating audiences nationwide with their high-energy show packed with hits, including their new single "NOISE," which is currently No. 43 on the chart and rising fast. Over the last 30 years, the band has recorded 9 studio albums, 13 No. 1 records and charted 26 singles on the Billboard country charts. Their No. 1 hits include “Two Dozen Roses,” “Church on Cumberland Road,” “Next to You, Next to Me,” “I Want to be Loved Like That,” “Sunday In The South,” “Somewhere in the Vicinity of the Heart” and many more.



“We have found ourselves in the best of both worlds scenario. We have joined forces with ADKINS PUBLICITY. This will help to move along our plans of an aggressive strategy to get Shenandoah in front of as many people as possible on the national level while having Absolute Publicity continue our day to day touring press. That way, our fans and promoters alike will benefit. There are great things happening with our new single “NOISE,” and with new music coming out in March, we are turning up the awareness volume! We are proud to have Scott and his gang at Adkins Publicity on the team,” said Shenandoah lead singer Marty Raybon.

ABOUT SHENANDOAH: GRAMMY®, CMA and ACM-winning hitmakers Shenandoah are celebrating 30 years of chart-topping hits as the group gears up for new music and non-stop touring in 2018. Fueled by Marty Raybon’s distinctive vocals and the band’s skilled musicianship, Shenandoah became well known for delivering such hits as “Two Dozen Roses”, “Church on Cumberland Road” and “Next to You, Next to Me” as well as such achingly beautiful classics as “I Want to be Loved Like That” and the Grammy winning “Somewhere in the Vicinity of the Heart” duet with Alison Krauss. Today that legacy continues as original members Raybon and Mike McGuire reunite to launch a new chapter in Shenandoah’s storied career. Raybon and McGuire formed the band in 1984 in Muscle Shoals, Alabama with bassist Ralph Ezell, keyboardist Stan Thorn and guitarist Jim Seales. Shenandoah inked a deal with the legendary label and began establishing a national fan base with their self-titled debut in 1987. However, it was the band’s sophomore effort, The Road Not Taken, that spawned their first top ten hits—“She Doesn't Cry Anymore” and “Mama Knows.” Shenandoah followed with three consecutive No. 1 hits—“Church on Cumberland Road,” “Sunday in the South” and “Two Dozen Roses.” “The Church on Cumberland Road” spent two weeks at the top of the chart and made country music history as it marked the first time that a country band's first No. 1 single spent more than one week at the summit. It also helped propel sales of the album to more than half a million units thus giving Shenandoah their first gold album. Shenandoah became known for delivering songs that celebrated the importance of faith and family while reveling in the joys of small town life. “Next to You, Next to Me” topped the charts for three weeks and “Somewhere in the Vicinity of the Heart,” a beautiful duet with Alison Krauss, won a Country Music Association Award for Vocal Event of the year and a Grammy for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. Shenandoah also won the Academy of Country Music’s Vocal Group of the Year in 1991. Shenandoah recorded nine studio albums and placed 26 singles on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.
