Featured Artist: 10/26/10 Little Big Town

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

littlebigtownLittle Big Town is an American country music vocal group. Founded in 1998, the group has comprised the same four members since its inception: Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Jimi Westbrook, and Phillip Sweet. The quartet’s musical style relies heavily on four-part vocal harmonies, with all four members alternating as lead singers. Westbrook and Sweet also play rhythm guitar.

Little Big Town released their self-titled debut on Monument Records in 2002. It produced the singles “Don’t Waste My Time” and “Everything Changes”, which respectively peaked at #33 and #42 on the Billboard country charts. Their second album, The Road to Here, was released that year. Certified platinum in the U.S., it produced consecutive Top Ten singles on the country charts in “Boondocks” and “Bring It On Home“.  A Place to Land is the title of their third album, released in 2007. This album’s first single, “I’m with the Band”, was a Top 40 hit on the country charts.

Little Big Town have charted twelve songs on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. This figure includes a Christmas single which was made available only as a download, and a live cover of “Life in a Northern Town” (along with Sugarland and Jake Owen) which charted in 2008 based on unsolicited airplay.

Little Big Town released their fourth studio album, The Reason Why, on August 24, 2010 via Capitol Nashville.

In March 2010, the group released a new single titled “Little White Church“, as the lead-off single to their fourth studio album and first completely new album on Capitol Nashville, The Reason Why, which was released on August 24, 2010. “Little White Church” has become their highest charted single since “Bring It on Home” reached #4 in 2006. “Kiss Goodbye” will be the album’s second single.

A Come Back for Several Drivers!!

Monday, October 25th, 2010

denny-hamlin-wins-martinsville.665Denny Hamlin won Sunday’s Tums Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville and trimmed fifth-place finisher Jimmie Johnson’s lead in the Chase for the Sprint Cup to six points with four races left in the season.

The closest Chase ever through six races is on a collision course toward next Sunday’s AMP Energy Juice 500 at Talladega Superspeedway, the most dangerous and unpredictable race in the Chase. Crew chief Mike Ford and his over-the-wall crew gained three spots for their driver during their final pit stop, before a restart on Lap 394.

Hamlin could have a yard sale on grandfather clocks, after winning the distinctive Martinsville trophy for the fourth time and third in a row. The victory was Hamlin’s series-best seventh of the season and the 15th of his career.

For a while Sunday race, there was no one better than either Mark Martin or Dale Earnhardt Jr. Martin never led a lap and eventually finished second to race winner Denny Hamlin, but he was coming hard at the end, running faster laps than anyone else. Earnhardt eventually faded to seventh, but not before he energized the crowd by leading 90 laps.mark-martin.193

So in a season when they have been consistently outrun by their two teammates at Hendrick Motorsports, four-time Sprint Cup champions Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon, this was finally a day when Martin and Earnhardt also took their turns at shining.

Congratulations to both of them… and yeah Mark Martin!!!

Featured Artist: 10/19/10 Black Crows

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

The Black Crowes are an American rock and roll band that has sold over 30 million albums. They were labeled by Melody Maker as “The Most Rock ‘n’ Roll Rock ‘n’ Roll Band in the World”. In 1990, the readers of Rolling Stone voted them ‘Best New American Band’. The band has opened for rock and roll bands such as Heart, Robert Plant, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, the Dave Matthews Band and The Grateful Dead. The band is listed at number 92 on VH1’s “100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock”.

The band released its first studio album, Shake Your Money Maker, in 1990. On the strength of singles “Hard to Handle“, “She Talks to Angels“, “Jealous Again“, “Twice As Hard“, “Sister Luck”, and “Seeing Things”, their debut album received multi-platinum certification and eventually sold over three million copies. Their cover of Otis Redding’s “Hard to Handle” and their acoustic ballad “She Talks to Angels” both broke the Top 30 on the pop charts in 1991 while “Twice As Hard” and “Jealous Again” were moderate hits. The band launched its own tour that May and later took part in a Monsters of Rock tour in the Soviet Union, where they opened for Motley Crue and Queensrÿche, among others.

The band regrouped, adding Sven Pipien on bass prior to its next recording sessions. By Your Side was released in January 1999; the album stripped away the more adventurous sounds of Amorica and Three Snakes and One Charm in favor of leaner, soul-influenced songs ready for radio. The album’s more mainstream approach spawned singles in “Kickin’ My Heart Around”, “Only a Fool”, and “Go Faster”.

In May 2001, the band released Lions on Virgin mogul Richard Branson’s V2 record label. Singles “Lickin’” and “Soul Singing” had a solid presence on rock radio and Lions peaked at number 20 on the charts. The Black Crowes were inducted into the Guitar Center Rockwalk, a walk of fame honoring notable musical acts and artists. Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher and Slash were on hand for the ceremony. The band effectively dissolved in January 2002 with the departure of drummer Steve Gorman and an announcement that the band was “taking a hiatus.”

After several attempts at revitalizing the band, tours, albums and members….On April 21, 2010, the band announced an August 3 release date for the double, all acoustic album Croweology, as well as tour dates for the “Say Good Night to the Bad Guys Tour,” which will feature two 90-minute sets at the majority of shows: one acoustic and one electric. Another hiatus will follow the tour.

Green, White Checkered Finish, for those who did!

Monday, October 11th, 2010

stewart.VL.1459 of the chase drivers had troubles on Sunday in California. The Fontana track was tough on engines and tires. It was a challange for some machines to just make it to the finish including both of the Roush Fenway Racing teammates Greg Biffle and Matt Kenseth. Both Busch boys had problems, as well as Clint Boyer at the Pepsi Max 400.

Tony Stewart still needs help to catch Sprint Cup Series points leader Jimmie Johnson, but he jump-started his climb back into contention for the series championship Sunday at Auto Club Speedway.

Jeff Gordon also took a hit in the points after being flagged for speeding on pit road during stops under caution on Lap 156. He rallied for a ninth-place finish but still lost significant ground to Johnson.

As wome went up in Smoke, Tony Stewart aka: Smoke, beat resilient Clint Bowyer to the finish line by .466 seconds in Sunday’s Pepsi Max 400 to win his first race at the 2-mile track, his second of the year and the 39th of his career. Stewart, who gets his engines and chassis from Hendrick Motorsports, isn’t about to discount his chances of winning a third Cup title.

“We’re doing everything we can do,” said Stewart, who took the lead one lap after a restart on Lap 188 and held it the rest of the way. “We’re going to need some help, but we’re doing everything we can do. I’m proud of these guys, and just so thankful … they refuse to give up, they refuse to back down. We’ll just keep doing what we’re doing here.”
