    Traveller

    Chris Stapleton's highly anticipated solo debut album, Traveller, will be released on Mercury Records Nashville. As a special preview, a behind-the-scenes album trailer can now be viewed here.


    Already a world-renowned songwriter, Stapleton has enjoyed five #1 hits including the five-week No. 1 "Never Wanted Nothing More" recorded by Kenny Chesney, George Strait's "Love's Gonna Make it Alright" and Luke Bryan's "Drink A Beer," which Stapleton recently performed with Lady Antebellum at the recent CMT "Artists of the Year" show (watch the performance here).


    Recorded at Nashville's historic RCA Studio A (with additional production at The Castle and Blackbird Studio), Traveller was produced by Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell) and recorded by Vance Powell (Jack White). In addition to renditions of Dean Dillon and Linda Hargrove's "Tennessee Whiskey" and Don Sampson's "Was It 26," the album features twelve original songs, including fan-favorite "Sometimes I Cry." Last night, during a special album reveal party, Stapleton returned to RCA Studio A to record a new version of "Sometimes I Cry" live-to-tape in front of an audience-allowing a unique, once-in-a-lifetime glimpse inside the making of the album. The track is currently being mastered and will be added to the final track-listing very shortly.


    Of his inspiration behind the record, Stapleton comments, "This record was made standing on the shoulders of friends, family, and heroes. I hope people enjoy listening to it as much as I've enjoyed making it."


    Over the course of his acclaimed career, Stapleton has penned over 170 album cuts, including songs recorded by Adele, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley and Dierks Bentley, and has such notable co-writers as Vince Gill, Peter Frampton and Sheryl Crow among others. Additionally, Stapleton has shared the stage with such respected artists as Gill, Alison Krauss, Marty Stuart, Emmylou Harris and more. As lead vocalist for critically acclaimed bluegrass band The SteelDrivers, Stapleton earned three Grammy nominations including "Best Bluegrass Album," as well as an International Bluegrass Music Association Award for"Emerging Artist of the Year." He's also won eight ASCAP Awards and has contributed to the soundtracks of several feature films including "Cars 2" and "Valentine's Day."

    From A Room: Volume 1

    Chris Stapleton fans will have plenty of new music to keep them happy in 2017. The breakout country star has announced plans to release two new albums, both of which were recorded at RCA's legendary Studio A in Nashville


    The follow-up to Stapleton's smash 2015 debut album Traveller, From A Room: Volume 1 features nine new songs, eight of which Stapleton co-wrote with some of his go-to collaborators. The new tracks include "Broken Halos," "Second One to Know," "Death Row," and "Without Your Love," all co-written by Stapleton and former SteelDrivers bandmate Mike Henderson.


    The album also features "Either Way as well as "I Was Wrong," co-written with Craig Wiseman, and "Them Stems," a three-way collaboration with Jimmy Stewart and Shawn Camp. He also covers Willie Nelson's "Last Thing I Needed, First Thing This Morning."


    "I'm real proud of this record," Stapleton told the assembled reporters (quote via the Tennessean). "We made it right here like the last one. We camped out in here and had a lot of fun recording things."


    From A Room: Volume 2, which is linked conceptually with Volume 1, will be released later in 2017.

    The Steeldrivers

    Available for the first time on vinyl, The SteelDrivers' critically and commercially successful 2008 self-titled debut established the Nashville band as a force to be reckoned with. With Music Row songwriter Chris Stapleton at the helm - who has gone on to be a star in his own right- The SteelDrivers was praised for its contemporary mix of blues, Americana and country, garnering a GRAMMY nomination, and the attention of singer Adele, who covered "If It Hadn't Been For Love" on her 2010 LP, 21.

    Welcome Home

    Produced by Grammy-Award winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell) and In The Arena Productions, and recorded at Southern Ground Nashville studio, Welcome Home is what Zac Brown Band calls not only a return to their roots, but also a return to The Foundation, the band's debut album that is now 5X platinum.


    The theme of reflection is echoed throughout the 10-track album. Songs range from the first single, My Old Man, which paints a poignant picture of the ever-changing relationship between fathers and sons to Two Places at One Time, about juggling the conflict between life on the road and the comforts of home, and Roots, which honors the band's journey from their humble beginnings. In addition, the band continues their tradition of recording a cover song they all admire, this time with John Prine's All The Best.


    This is the most personal album we've ever done and we're very proud of it, said Brown. Welcome Home.

    American Love

    Jake Owen's fifth studio LP is new territory for the singer who's known for lighthearted beach and party tunes, and he feels really good about that. After the release of "Real Life" (which was also around the time his divorce was announced), Owen started over with new songs - and he is not releasing the material he originally planned on.
    "I was at a different place when I was making that record," he tells EW of ditching the material. "I was still married, and all of the sudden that ended, and I had to find a way to feel good again.


    "I started down that path and then I realized that, for me, making music is as about feeling good as the listeners that gets to hear it," he says. "I have to make an album that I enjoy singing every night."


    The album is about love. But don't expect every track to be a gushy love song. It turns out Jake Owen enjoys singing about love on tour: "I kept noticing this reoccurring theme. The word kept appearing, but it was said in such different ways. I'm really proud that I got to encompass how love can be felt different ways but still remain the same, if that makes sense."


    His vocals will be on full display for American Love. Though he's not entirely walking away from the ultra-cool speak-singing he's known for, Owen wants to really show country fans he can sing. "Sometimes my voice gets hidden," he admits. "People don't even have the opportunity to know that I love to sing."
    The album will street July 29, and Owen reveals that he listens to it in his car. "It's been a long time since I made a record that I put on in my car and listen to on my own - but I can't stop. It makes me happy, and I know how much work I put into it."


    Included in the album is a collaboration with Chris Stapleton. He helped write "If He Ain't Gonna Love You," and Stapleton also sings backup. "And it sounds so good," Owen tells Taste of Country Nights host Sam Alex. "He sounds unbelievable on it, so I'm so excited."

    That's It!

    Preservation Hall Jazz Band and its music continue to evolve
    as they embrace tradition and history while inspiring a new
    generation. Preservation Hall Jazz Band and My Morning Jacket
    rst met a few years ago and also performed together on tour
    and in New Orleans. As their support for each other has grown,
    Jim James (My Morning Jacket) decided to take on the role
    as co-producer with Ben Jaffe on what is the rst release of
    original music from Preservation Hall Jazz Band. With songs
    co-written with Dan Wilson, Chris Stapleton and the legendary
    Paul Williams, these new recordings have a fresh approach but
    still capture the classic feel of what has kept Preservation Hall
    Jazz Band relevant over the past 50 years.

    Shine On Rainy Day

    Out on Low Country Sounds/Elektra Records, Shine On Rainy Day was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, etc.) and recorded live over four days in Nashville.


    Of the music and working with producer (and cousin) Dave Cobb, Brent comments, "It's not as good as it's going to get. But if it's the last thing that I ever do, if I died the day after it came out, then thank God I was able to record it because the songs and the production, it was everything I wanted to say. Finally."


    Dave adds, "I wanted to work with Brent for very selfish reasons. When he lifts a pen and opens his mouth, it sounds like home. I did his record because he's part of the fabric of South Georgia and the soundtrack to my family. Pure rural country soul filled music."


    Already receiving notice, Brent was recently featured on WXPN's World CafÉ (listen to the full session here), while Rolling Stone featured him as one of their "30 Must-See Acts" at CMA Fest 2016, asserting, "Live, he's every bit the charming raconteur, setting up catchy rural anthems that have the loose and earthy feel of a front porch sing-along."


    Additionally, earlier this year, Brent was featured on Dave's widely praised Southern Family compilation-contributing the song "Down Home" and writing the standout "Sweet By & By," which was recorded by Miranda Lambert. Of "Down Home," Wide Open Country declares, " one of the most earnest and accurate retellings of everyday life in rural Georgia. The mixture of Cobb's charming southern drawl, brilliant storytelling and flawless production melds into a track that is impossible to resist."


    Born in Ellaville, GA (population 1,609), Brent moved to Nashville in 2008 and has since found widespread success as a writer with songs recorded by Lambert ("Old Shit"), Kenny Chesney ("Don't It"), Luke Bryan ("Tailgate Blues"), David Nail ("Grandpa's Farm"), Kellie Pickler ("Rockaway") and Eli Young Band ("Go Outside and Dance") among others.

    Hell Or High Water Soundtrack

    Directed by David Mackenzie Hell or High Water is a heist film starring Ben Foster, Chris Pine and Jeff Bridges. Based on the infamous 2012 Black List script, the film is set in West Texas, in an area formerly known as Comancheria, and tells the story of two brothers who plan a bank robbery to save their family farm. The film was extremely well-received during its Premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May.


    Critics praised and applauded the film's archetypal Americana, along with the memorable performances of its main protagonists and the composers' moody and minimalist score. Nick Cave of the Bad Seeds and his musical partner Warren Ellis deliver a ravishing score perfectly fitting the dry and arid landscape in which the characters strive to survive. The soundtrack album also includes Sleeping On The Backtop (Colter Wall), Outlaw State Of Mind (Chris Stapleton) and many more country music infused titles.

    Sleeping Through The War

    Produced by Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Rival Sons)
    and mixed/engineered by UK-bred young-gun Eddie Spear, All Them Witches'
    "Sleeping Through The War" is the quartet's most bold and well-crafted record
    to date. The album's creation marks the f irst time in the band's history that
    a record was written before entering the studio. This process allowed for an
    alignment of the band's art, desire and time. Convening in Nashville for only
    six days after a year of relentlessly touring their New West Records debut
    "Dying Surfer Meets Their Maker," the band's spirit coalesced in a rhythm of
    statement and melody that simply needs to be heard...repeatedly.


    With the guidance of Cobb and Spear, "Sleeping Through The War" captures the
    truest energy of the group, full blast, fun and contemplative. The record was
    made with volume in mind. "Sleeping Through The War" is meant to be played
    loud, cranked up and without reservation. Feel it live through your stereo
    system or listen to it speak in tongues through your headphones.


    The sounds are nothing without the songs and the songs are nothing without
    the lyrics. This record is a result of constant touring, world travel,
    overstimulated/divided humanity, and a learning of awareness and compassion.


    "They are the real deal - psychedelic blues-rock warriors who pray at the
    altar of Black Sabbath, space out like Pink Floyd and shred away their
    bummers like Blue Cheer." - Spin

    Side Pony

    Lake Street Dive announce their Nonesuch Records debut album, Side Pony. The four band members-drummer Michael Calabrese, bassist Bridget Kearney, singer Rachael Price, and guitarist/trumpeter Michael McDuck Olson-worked with Nashville-based producer Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton, Secret Sisters) on the record.


    Side Pony takes its name from a song on the record that refers to a whimsical hairstyle, but it also serves as a metaphor for Lake Street Dive's philosophy and personality as a band. As Kearney puts it, When we were settling on the album title, that one just stuck out to us as embodying the band's spirit. We've always been this somewhat uncategorizable, weird, outlying, genre-less band. That's the statement we wanted to make with this record: be yourself.


    Olson echoes her sentiment: It has also come to mean anything you're doing for the sheer joy of it. We have always 'rocked our side pony.' Now we have a convenient phrase for it.


    Cobb's working method was to keep the recording fast and loose, as live-in-the-studio as possible, and to embrace the unorthodox. This provided Lake Street Dive with a welcome challenge: an opportunity to experiment with sound and arrangements and to collaborate on songwriting in a way the band had never attempted before.


    Calabrese says of the recording process, Dave's process was mercurial, changing direction quickly, going from 'we don't have anything' to 'we've got it!' He continues, We weren't always so sure. But then we'd listen to a comp and we'd agree that he'd heard something we hadn't.


    Price adds, It was great to see, through this particular recording process, how beautifully our individual strengths complement each other.

    Back To Us (Deluxe)

    CM Awards Vocal Group of the Year Nominee Rascal Flatts release their highly-anticipated tenth studio album BACK TO US (Big Machine Records) . The collection is reminiscent of the trio's distinct sound that catapulted their status as international superstars, while maintaining an edge that has kept them at the forefront of the genre. With 12 of 13 tracks produced by the group with bassist Jay DeMarcus taking the reigns the album explores the powerful emotions of relationships with songwriting credits from the trio throughout, adding a personal depth to the release.

    Stacked with multiple standout moments, including the vocally-driven collaboration with Lauren Alaina, Are You Happy Now, the trio also called upon songwriting powerhouses and friends Dan + Shay, alongside Cary Barlowe and Jesse Frasure for the optimistically, upbeat Hopin You Were Lookin and Chris Stapleton, joined by Luke Laird, for the effervescent Vandalized. Hands Talk also welcomes red-hot producer busbee, who co-wrote and produced the track for the deluxe album.

    The infectious song is turning heads as one of the fastest moving singles on country radio charts (Entertainment Weekly) while Rolling Stone proclaims it showcases the band's vocal harmonies and knack for sing-along hooks.

    Walk The Earth (Pre-Order)


    Colored Vinyl


    Europe are pleased to announce the release of a new studio album "Walk The Earth."


    If Europe's 2015 album "War Of Kings" was the album that made the rock world realise what a formidable act Europe had become then
    "Walk The Earth" is the album that is set to establish the band as one of the most exciting contemporary rock acts of current times.
    From the anthemic sound of the opening track "Walk The Earth" - to the heavy vibe that is "Haze", from the instant melody of "Election
    Day" to the lyrical content of "Kingdom United", "Walk The Earth" is the album that should see Europe rightly acclaimed as a band at the
    height of their powers. The wonderful melodies and depth of Joey Tempest's vocals along with a powerhouse rhythm section and the
    guitar playing of John Norum, one of the great underrated guitarists. Norum's guitar playing shines across the record.


    This is an album that is big in its scope and sound. Much like previous album "War Of Kings", "Walk The Earth" is an album that has instant appeal but is also an
    album that needs to be lived with, in order to uncover it's depth. The album was recorded at famed Abbey Road Studios in London with
    Grammy winning producer Dave Cobb (Rival Sons, Shooter Jennings, Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton).

    The Things That We Are Made Of

    The Things That We Are Made Of, the new full-length album by renowned and beloved singer, songwriter and performer Mary Chapin Carpenter, will be released on Lambent Light Records via Thirty Tigers.


    Produced by 2016 Producer of the Year Grammy-nominee Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton), the album features eleven new songs, including the lead track "Something Tamed Something Wild. Of the song, Rolling Stone praises, " beautifully sums up where she's been and sets the stage for what's yet to come 'Something Tamed Something Wild' and indeed the entire new album finds the songwriter at her most thoughtful and also at times sweetly whimsical, perfectly capturing the buoyant spirit of her early successes and also serving as a reminder that she remains one of the most grounded, sentient songwriters of her generation."


    The Things That We Are Made Of was recorded at Nashville's Sound Emporium and Low Country Sound studios during the spring and summer of 2015. In addition to Carpenter (vocals, electric/acoustic guitar), the album features Cobb (electric/acoustic/gut string guitar, percussion, Moog, Mellotron), Annie Clements (bass), Brian Allen (bass), Chris Powell (drums, percussion), Mike Webb (piano, B3 organ, reed organ, Mellotron, Fender Rhodes) and Jimmy Wallace (piano, B3 organ).


    Of the album, Carpenter comments, "Working with Dave felt great from the first day of our sessions. He is always willing to try something new, believes that 'yes' is the only answer, and surrounds himself with wonderfully talented and generous musicians; by the end of the project, I felt as if I was a part of a new family." Cobb adds, "I wanted to work with Mary Chapin because very few people can cut with words like she can. She's an absolute poet and legend. I was so happy to collaborate on this album together."


    Over the course of her acclaimed career, Carpenter has recorded 14 albums and sold over 14 million records. With hits like "Passionate Kisses" and "He Thinks He'll Keep Her," she has won five Grammy Awards (with 15 nominations), two CMA awards, two Academy of Country Music awards for her vocals and is a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Most recently, in 2014, Carpenter released her acclaimed debut orchestral album, Songs From The Movie. Arranged and co-produced by six-time Grammy winner Vince Mendoza, the record is comprised of ten previously recorded compositions including "Between Here and Gone" and "Come On Come On." Since it's release, Carpenter has performed alongside the New York Philharmonic, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, the London Concert Orchestra, the L.A. Philharmonic and the National Symphony Orchestra among many others.
