About Shenandoah:

GRAMMY®, CMA and ACM-winning hitmakers Shenandoah, fueled by Marty Raybon’s distinctive vocals and the band’s skilled musicianship, are celebrated 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 Marty Raybon and Mike McGuire launch a new chapter in Shenandoah’s storied career with their new record Every Road. Raybon and McGuire formed Shenandoah in 1984 in Muscle Shoals, Alabama with bassist Ralph Ezell, keyboardist Stan Thorn and guitarist Jim Seales. Shenandoah inked a deal with Columbia Records 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.

Chris Young and Kane Brown Set to Perform on TODAY

Multi-platinum entertainer Chris Young and ACM award winning artist Kane Brown will perform their Billboard and Mediabase top 10 and rising collaboration, “Famous Friends,” on TODAY with Hoda & Jenna this Thursday, May 27 on NBC, celebrating the resilient class of 2021. 

Already a No. 1 smash on SiriusXM’s The Highway, Canadian country radio and Music Row’s CountryBreakout radio chart, the “Famous Friends” music video, which features Chris and Kane’s own hometown famous friends, is nominated for Collaborative Video of the Year at the 2021 CMT Awards.  

Written by Chris with Cary Barlowe and Corey Crowder from a headline tour stop in Tampa in 2018, “Famous Friends” was teased by Chris and Kane on social media last year. The autobiographical song mentions Rutherford County, where Chris grew up in Tennessee, and Kane’s hometown of Hamilton County along with Nashville’s Davidson County.   

An anthemic tribute to the names, faces, and legendary stories that make up each hometown, “Famous Friends” is Chris and Kane’s first collaboration since working together on Kane’s 2017: “Setting the Night On Fire.” Additionally, the song reunites the former tour mates from Chris’ 2018 Losing Sleep Headlining Tour—which included a sold-out hometown show at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena—and is a full-circle moment since Kane’s first live concert experience as a young Country fan was at a Brad Paisley and Chris Young tour stop.  

About Chris Young 

Multi-platinum RCA Records Nashville entertainer Chris Young has accumulated an impressive list of accomplishments, including membership in the iconic Grand Ole Opry, more than 4 Billion on-demand streams, 13 Million singles sold, 11 career No. 1 singles, 21 R.I.A.A. Gold/Platinum/Multi-Platinum certified projects, 2 Grammy nominations, 3 Country Music Association nominations and 4 Academy of Country Music nominations along with a win for Performance of the Year at 2020’s CMT Music Awards. 

As a prolific creator, Chris has given fans 7 studio albums in 15 years including Losing Sleep, his third project in less than two years. The title track is certified Platinum while “Hangin’ On” is his ninth No. 1 as a songwriter. Losing Sleep (2017) and I’m Comin’ Over (2015) debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart with “I’m Comin’ Over” becoming Young’s first 2x Platinum single. These accomplishments and more landed him in the Top 20 of Billboard’s top country artists of the decade.

Named “one of his era’s finest traditionalists” by the Associated Press, Chris has quickly become an international ambassador for country music, performing to capacity crowds around the world including the sold-out C2C Festival in the UK. With a hit-packed set that highlights his eleven chart-toppers — including back-to-back No. 1s “Losing Sleep,” “Sober Saturday Night,” “Think Of You,” and “I’m Comin’ Over” — the Grammy and ACM nominated vocalist headlined the Raised On Country World Tour, playing to over 400,000 fans in 3 countries in 2019.

ELLE KING × MIRANDA LAMBERT – “DRUNK (AND I DON’T WANNA GO HOME)”

ELLE KING AND MIRANDA LAMBERT’S “DRUNK (AND I DON’T WANNA GO HOME)” CRASHES INTO THE #1 SPOT ON BOTH THE BILLBOARD ROCK AND COUNTRY DIGITAL SONG CHARTS THIS WEEK.

Listen/Watch HERE

Elle King and Miranda Lambert’s brand new collaboration “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” is clearly the party everyone has been missing. The single debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Country Digital Song Sales Chart and #1 on the Rock Digital Sales Chart. Listen/Watch the Video HERE.

The song was co-written by Elle King with Martin Johnson, who also produced the track, and was recorded in Nashville and New York pre-pandemic.

This is the second time the two female powerhouse performers have recorded together with their first release “Fooled Around and Fell in Love” (along with Maren Morris, Ashley McBryde, Tenille Townes and Caylee Hammack) going on to win the 2020 ACM Award for “Music Event of The Year.”  Elle also was a special guest on Miranda’s 2019 Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars tour.

To accompany the track, the pair met up in Nashville to film an 80s-inspired wedding video starring Elle as the bride and Miranda as her Maid of Honor complete with a cameo from Elle’s real-life fiancé as the groom. The video was shot in January by directing duo Running Bear using strict COVID protocols.

Watch the video HERE.

Check out what the press is saying about “Drunk”:

“’Drunk’ is a fist-pump, feel good, girl-power anthem from these two country power houses, with a nostalgic, pastel music video to match.”

360 Magazine

“This may be end up being a top-10 pop song, country song, and rock song of 2021.”

“Brilliant stuff here at the intersection King’s sassy roots-rock shtick, Lambert’s sassy country shtick, and the Nashville mainstream’s constant drift toward arena rock.”

Stereogum

“…a euphoric collaboration…exhilarating new duet.”
“When the chorus hits, it’s neon-spattered, banjo-flecked euphoria that fits perfectly with the idea of blowing off steam well into the wee hours.”

Rolling Stone

“Firebrands King and Lambert hit one out of the bar with this singalong ode to handing your keys to the bartender and drinking all night because you don’t want to go home. The song will fuel a thousand karaoke nights and a million bridal parties, but it’s the cotton candy-colored video that really sells it, with King as a feisty bride and Lambert as the maid of honor who’s the first to spike the punch.”

“… an enjoyable glass-raising anthem, but it’s the way that the ‘Ex’s and Oh’s’ singer and country veteran complement one another on the track that denotes a longstanding bond, and an opportunity to listen in on their fun.”

Billboard
“Elle King and Miranda Lambert’s Duet ‘Drunk’ Is an ‘All-In’ Party of an Event”

“Drunk” is a memorable, feel-good anthem.”

CMT

“…a rip-roarin’ good time!”
“…this catchy tribute to a blackout night, complete with a fun-filled, wedding-themed music video…”

“Go Behind the Scenes of Their Gender-Bending Music Video (Exclusive)

Miranda Lambert and Elle King’s ‘Drunk’”- Watch HERE

Entertainment Tonight

“…hilarious music video…”
People

“Country superstar Miranda Lambert and rocker Elle King let loose for a wild-night duet …up-tempo anthem…features a driving rhythmic stomp and maxed out country-rock edge, mixing rolling banjos with party-all-night vocals. Lambert leads the rebellious second verse and also blends her vocal in with King’s gritty delivery throughout, and King says track’s devil-may-care attitude suits them both well.”
Sounds Like Nashville

“It’s a wild wedding — and Miranda and Elle are there to party.”
The Boot

“the badassery levels are off the charts. Co-written by King and Martin Johnson, it’s a fun tribute to staying out till dawn and drinking the night away (remember that?).”

Whiskey Riff

“…unapologetic anthem…a first pumping, banjo-led party song to rule any dance floor.”

“’Drunk’ is coasting at the top of the charts right now because the track crosses any sort of existing genre barriers – the long hailing queen of country revenge tales and the rock/pop King belting out how they’re both not ready to leave the cash bar just yet. It’s a wedding party we all want to be a part of.”

Earmilk

“…a dizzying new party anthem”

“One-time tourmates Miranda Lambert and Elle King join forces once again for the genre-bending party banger…”

ABC Radio News

“Fun, upbeat…Exhilarating…a party anthem all about living your best life on the spur of the moment.”

AUSTIN CITY LIMITS – THE MAVERICKS

By Cassandra Yany

Austin City Limits will spotlight renowned rock and country trailblazers The Mavericks on Nov. 21 at 8 p.m. CT/ 9 p.m. ET on PBS. The installment is part of the series’ 46th season and will showcase the band’s chart-topping, all Spanish-language album En Español.

The GRAMMY, CMA and ACM award-winning band reaches a career milestone with this being their first Spanish-language album, which debuted at no. 1 on Billboard’s Latin Pop Albums Chart. The genre-bending group return to their Miami roots to blend their eclecticism with a collection of Spanish language originals and traditional Latin songs that inspired them.

The four core Mavericks members— lead singer and songwriter Raul Malo, guitarist Eddie Perez, keyboardist Jerry Dale McFadden and drummer Paul Deakin— are elevated by horns, accordion and backing vocals for a powerful nine-musician combo. The band celebrates the diversity of cultures with their unique take on classic tracks from the vast Latin American catalog, starting off with the Cuban country track “La Sitiera,” which escalates to an exciting full-band bloom complete with horns and accordion. 

Malo— who is a first-generation Cuban American— introduces his late grandfather’s favorite song, “Me Olvidé de Vivir” by Julio Iglesias, which the Mavericks made their own in a country rendition. He also salutes one of his own favorite artists with the mariachi-flavored spin they take on Juan Gabriel’s “No Vale La Pena.”

The group delivers thrilling performances of new originals, including “Recuerdos,” which is backed by horns, and “Suspiro Azul,” which is amplified by standout harmonies. In tribute to performing at the house that Willie Nelson built, Malo gives a solo acoustic take on Nelson’s “Blue Eyes Crying In the Rain.” The band also performed Latin-influenced tracks form their 2013 reunion album In Time, including the lush “Come Unto Me,” featuring dueling guitar and accordion solos, and the energetic, rockabilly-flavored “As Long As There’s Loving Tonight.”

“Showcasing The Mavericks first all-Spanish album on Austin City Limits during the same week as the Latin Grammy Awards is perfect timing,” said ACL executive producer Terry Lickona. “Since I became co-producer of the Latin GRAMMYs, I’ve made it my mission to bring the joy and beauty of Latin music to the ACL stage every year. This show is a great ‘primer’ for that!”

The Mavericks’ episode was recorded in September and will be the second no-audience taping of the program due to the coronavirus pandemic. This marks the group’s third appearance on the show, being their first in two decades. 

During these tough times, ACL continues to provide viewers with a front row seat to live performances. The series airs weekly across the nation and full episodes are made available online for a limited time immediately following the broadcast. The second half of the Season 46 will be announced soon, with six new episodes to begin airing in January. Fans can also find exclusive songs, behind-the-scenes videos and full-length artist interviews on the ACL YouTube channel.
