If you missed Nashville’s first documentary, For the Love of Music: The Story of Nashville now is a great time to catch up. Telling the story of Nashville became Music City, the full film is available for viewing online now:

On March 16, the Grand Ole Opry paused all shows with a live audience,

but vowed to continue its nearly 95-year radio broadcast history with

acoustic performances from some Opry favorites and minimal crew. Almost

half a million fans streamed or listened to the show, helping the Opry

continue its streak as the world’s longest running radio show. That

will continue this Saturday, March 21, when Circle, Opry’s television

network, will again bring the Opry show to country music fans in their

own homes. Check your local listings, Facebook, and YouTube for more information and help keep the tradition alive by tuning in.

The music never stops in Nashville, and that is still the case. Many Nashville artists are sharing their talents with the world via social media and live streaming apps. Tune in to an upcoming show, or catch one you might have missed. Hear the music here.

SOUTHERN HALO’s JUST LIKE IN THE MOVIES

 SOUTHERN HALO‘s story arc expands with the April 27 release of their latest CD, the concept-driven, dream-inspired JUST LIKE IN THE MOVIES. This 14-track package, produced by Catt Gravitt and Gerald O’Brien, mirrors the emotional and musical growth of Natalia, Hannah and Christina Morris, the three sisters from the Mississippi Delta who form SOUTHERN HALO.

 

 

Inspired by a dream of Natalia’s, JUST LIKE IN THE MOVIES features 10 songs written or co-written by the lead vocalist/guitarist, and four titles from Music City’s hottest tunesmiths. The catchy ode to the glories of Southern womanhood, “Southern Halo,” kicks off the project and marks the first “scene” of this movie-made-music.  A co-write with Roxie Dean, the strong, multi-layered vocals and sing-along chorus make this a natural choice for the first “instant gratification track” offered with each  iTunes and Amazon pre-order of the CD.  The disc is the second outing for the trio with SESAC’s 2012 Writer of the Year Catt Gravitt (Kelly Clarkson, Jake Owen) and Gerald O’Brien (Martina McBride, Trace Adkins) at the helm.

 

 

Dream-Inspired Concept Disc Available For Pre-Order Now.
