Their stories of hard work, passion, and dedication are certain to resonate.”

OffScript brings creators and policymakers together to share stories – from life in the arts and coping with COVID to navigating politics in these strange and challenging times,” says RIAA Chairman & CEO Mitch Glazier. “Ruth and I had a blast talking with these legends and leaders and I think anyone who cares about music, politics, and our culture will find something in Off Script that lifts them up and makes them laugh.”

Listen: HERE.

“As I approached releasing 30 songs, celebrating my 30 years, it was natural to recreate some of the songs that were a major part of my journey and mix those up with new songs that have never been released,” says Lawrence of his Hindsight 2020 project. “Can’t wait for everyone to hear this next set of songs – some we’ve given a second life to and also, the new ones that I hope fans embrace the way they’ve done over these past 30 years.”

“‘Holes in the Wall’ is a song on that album that just sounded like it needed a fun collaboration,” continues Lawrence. “I thought, who better to have than my buddy, Tracy Byrd!”

Stephanie Quayle – We Buy Gold

Stephanie Quayle Cements Everlasting Love in Her Latest Release We Buy Gold Available Everywhere Now

Country music singer-songwriter and Big Sky Music Group recording artist, Stephanie Quayle, is celebrating unending love with her latest single We Buy Gold which is available now. The track, written by Park Chisolm, Anna Vaus, and Mark Irwin, and produced by Alex Kline, is a testament to how even though the world could be falling down around us and there are a million reasons to travel through life alone, we still long for that connection that we can carry with us for a lifetime.  

Listen to We Buy Gold here!

Growing up, ‘we buy gold’ was a sign in the storefront of my dad’s shop. Buying gold was part of my dad’s work so the title had me from the start. I understood it. Then when I actually heard the song, it really got me – the curiosities of how everything can be falling apart and we still fall in love, pair off, get engaged, married…We still find and choose each other, says Stephanie. 

She continues, We recorded this song years back and it just wasn’t quite right. We held onto it because we knew it was special. When Alex [Kline] brought this to life in her ‘Kline’ way, the story and the feel unfolded perfectly. I felt this song on a whole other level when my younger brother, John, got married at our farm during the Pandemic. The message never felt so honest as it did in that moment. Love prevailed when every possible hurdle came to pass. We still buy gold.

We Buy Gold is Stephanie’s third release in 2021 and rounds out a collection of songs that explore finding love and the journey that follows. Her most recently released tracks, By Heart and Wild Frontier, beautifully set the stage for this next single and tell a story seemingly pulled from Stephanie’s own life and romance with her husband. 

Stay tuned for even more new music from Stephanie this year!

Martina McBride

Martina McBride’s global charity initiative, Team Music Is Love (TMIL), hosted a wildly successful event at The Fairgrounds Nashville on Friday, June 7th to benefit the local community. This event included a food drive, book giveaway and storytelling, a diaper giveaway, and an essential item giveaway, which included items such as tooth brushes and toothpaste.
 
The Nashville Fairground neighborhood was selected as the location for this event due to its status as a food desert in Nashville – most people who live there lack easy access to affordable fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, as the closest grocery store is a two mile walk away.
 
To help, TMIL, in partnership with One Gen Away, brought in a truckload of over 20,000 pounds of locally sourced fresh produce and locally saved canned goods during the food drive, providing approximately 10,000 meals which will feed 380 families. This incredible feat will surely impact the local Nashville community given that 1 in 6 adults and 1 in 5 children in metro Nashville are food insecure – meaning they lack reliable access to nutritious food and may survive from fast food and convenience stores.
 
TMIL also partnered with The Word Wagon to give summer reading books to kids – two low income Nashville metro schools will receive free books – and partnered with the Nashville Diaper Bank to give diapers to families in need.
 
Of course, this event wouldn’t have been a success without the help of volunteers. People from 20 different states and 3 different countries showed up to help give away flowers, balloons, lemonade, and fill grocery carts with fresh foods and canned good staples. 
 

MuttNation Foundation Will Attend CMA Fest

MuttNation Foundation, founded by Miranda Lambert and her mother, Bev Lambert, will have a paw-stomping, tail-wagging presence at next week’s CMA Fest. After leading the Mutt March, featuring over 1,000 dog-loving participants and their pets, parading from Nissan Stadium to Walk of Fame Park, Miranda’s MuttNation will bring some of the most adorable, adoptable pups on the planet to the floor of Xfinity Fan Fair X at Music City Center.

“Our goal is to raise awareness for shelter pets across the country while we find as many loving homes as possible for the incredible pups from Nashville Humane. So, if you’ve got a heartbeat, be prepared to fall in love the minute you see them,” said Miranda, the proud owner of eight rescue dogs.

From Thursday through Sunday, 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Xfinity Fan Fair X, Nashville Humane Association will have a steady supply of playful pups looking for their new forever families. And while there’s no shortage of amazing performances during CMA Fest – including Miranda’s Nissan Stadium show on Saturday night – few things will be as entertaining as when the adoptable dogs all strut out to the MuttNation exhibit on the Music City Center floor, each day at noon.

“Nashville Humane is thrilled to partner with MuttNation again and can’t wait to join forces with the country fans to find more loving homes for our dogs,” said NHA’s Laura Chavarria, Executive Director. Here is a preview of some of your new best friends that will be available for adoption.

The MuttNation March and Adoption Drive are sponsored by Tractor Supply Company, the largest rural lifestyle retailer in the United States that also serves as a one-stop shop for all things pet. Tractor Supply is passionate about animals and supporting organizations like MuttNation Foundation that put deserving pets in loving homes.

2019 also marks the 10th Anniversary of MuttNation Foundation, which has grown from a mother-daughter venture to become a leading voice for animal advocacy. Since its inception, Miranda, Bev, and the MuttNation team have stepped up in times of natural disaster, providing millions of dollars to help rescue thousands of animals as well as supporting hundreds of shelters across the country. To help celebrate MuttNation’s 10th Anniversary, a one-of-a-kind Epiphone guitar signed by Miranda will be raffled off to benefit MuttNation’s mission. Enter the drawing here:
