RICKY SKAGGS ANNOUNCED AS 2018 COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME INDUCTEE

Nashville, Tenn. (March 27, 2018) — This fall, a bronze plaque depicting 15-time GRAMMY® Award-winning singer and musician Ricky Skaggswill be added to the Rotunda wall at the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum in Nashville. At a CMA-hosted press conference held this morning at the famed institution,Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwoodannounced Skaggs as one of three inductees for the Country Music Hall of Fame Class of 2018.
Later this year, Skaggs will be inducted in the “Modern Era Artist” category, along with the late Dottie West in the “Veterans Era Artist” category and the late Johnny Gimblein the “Recording and/or Touring Musician” category.
“I was totally shocked, and I burst into tears when I heard that I was gonna be the newest inductee into the Country Music Hall of Fame,” says Skaggs. “When I came to Nashville in 1980, I came to play music and hopefully get a record deal. All of that happened, but I never dreamed that I’d ever be a member of this hallowed Hall. Why me, and why now was going through my mind.”

Formal induction ceremonies for Skaggs, West, and Gimble will take place at the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum in the CMA Theater in the fall. Since 2007, the Museum’s Medallion Ceremony, an annual reunion of the Hall of Fame membership, has served as the official rite of induction for new members.
CMA created the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1961 to recognize noteworthy individuals for their outstanding contributions to the format with Country music’s highest honor.
“There are so many others that have inspired me, encouraged me, ones that I’ve truly learned from, and ones that have made such great contributions to Country and Bluegrass music,” notes Skaggs. “I’m humbled and very grateful to soon be listed among my many heroes in this great Country Music Hall of Fame. What an incredible honor. Thank you Jesus, and thank you CMA.”

Hall of Famers Set To Appear on Fox & Friends, Good Day NY, Varney & Company, Access Hollywood, PBS’s METRO FOCUS, IMUS in the Morning and more this week!!

“There’s a common thread linking the tracks, and gospel music in general: Humans locating the hope to be transported somewhere better.”​
– Jon Freeman, Rolling Stone Country

“The Oak Ridge Boys have a deep history of gospel singing, and they have no trouble picking up the habit here.”
– Jeff Gage, Rolling Stone

“The set is in fact an “organic” move for the Oaks, whose deep southern gospel music roots–along with early rock ‘n’ roll/R&B energy–have always been the bedrock of their unique country sound.”
– Jim Bessman, Centerline

“An album that shows that, well in their fifth decade of recording and touring together, the ‘Mighty Oaks’ still have plenty of fuel in the creative ignition.”

“You now have the perfect reason to put down that god-forsaken phone, buy the album…”

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – With the release of their highly anticipated new album 17th Avenue Revival (March 16, Lightning Rod Records), The Oak Ridge Boys are hitting the Big Apple this week where the quartet will make appearances on Good Day NY, Varney & Company, Access Hollywood, PBS’s METRO FOCUS, Fox & Friends, IMUS in the Morning, SiriusXM, and much more!

17th Avenue Revival brings The Oak Ridge Boys back to their gospel roots, but with an edge. Under the direction of famed-producer Dave Cobb, the Grand Ole Opry and Country Music Hall of Fame members touched on uncharted territory—and for a long-tenured act like The Oak Ridge Boys, that’s saying something. Somewhat retro, yet new and fresh at the same time, there was no vocal stacking and very few overdubs. For two of the songs, the Boys gathered around one microphone and let the harmonies shine, just as Dave Cobb had planned initially.

Since the start of their highly decorated career, the Oaks have achieved five GRAMMY® Awards, and multiple CMA, ACM and Dove Awards for their crossover brand of pop, country and gospel music that spans multiple generations.

The group—Joe Bonsall, Duane Allen, William Lee Golden, and Richard Sterban—have earned prestigious membership in the Country Music Hall of Fame (2015 Inductees) and Grand Ole Opry, and are known worldwide as one of recording history’s most extraordinary musical successes. They have charted single after single and album after album, celebrating two double-platinum albums and more than 30 Top 10 hits, including No. 1 chart-toppers “Elvira,” “Bobbie Sue,” “Thank God For Kids,” “American Made,” “Y’All Come Back Saloon,” among dozens more.

ABOUT SHENANDOAH:
GRAMMY®, CMA and ACM-winning hitmakers Shenandoah are celebrating 30 years of chart-topping hits as the group gears up for new music and non-stop touring in 2018. Fueled by Marty Raybon’s distinctive vocals and the band’s skilled musicianship, Shenandoah became well known 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 Raybon and Mike McGuire reunite to launch a new chapter in Shenandoah’s storied career. Raybon and McGuire formed the band in 1984 in Muscle Shoals, Alabama with bassist Ralph Ezell, keyboardist Stan Thorn and guitarist Jim Seales. Shenandoah inked a deal with the legendary label 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. Shenandoah recorded nine studio albums and placed 26 singles on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.

ABOUT THE BELLAMY BROTHERS:
Howard and David continue to prove that the trail they’ve ridden to fame has been as unique as their music itself—music that is now celebrating 40 years of success. The road that started on the pop music charts in the ‘70’s, took a winding turn into country music in the ‘80’s, paving the way for duos to come, such as Brooks & Dunn, Montgomery Gentry, Big & Rich, and The Judds. “If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me),” originally scrawled on a dinner napkin by David, rocketed them to the top of the country charts the way “Let Your Love Flow,” had done in the pop market just a few years earlier. It proved to be the first of a string of fourteen No. 1 singles in the U.S. alone. They’re the only U.S. country music act who’ve toured in India, Sri Lanka, New Caledonia and Qatar. The Bellamy Brothers hold the record in both the Academy of Country Music (ACM) and the Country Music Association Awards (CMA) for the most duo nominations. Numerous Grammy nods have also been directed toward the brothers. For more information, visitbellamybrothers.com.

Vincent and Singletary Featured on The Boot, Rolling Stone Country

NASHVILLE, TENN. – The wait is over as Rhonda Vincent and Daryle Singletary release their brand new duet album American Grandstand. The album includes 12 traditional country songs, combining classic duets, along with never before heard all-original music. This must-have album is released via Upper Management Music, and fans can purchase American Grandstand HERE.

Both artists have continued to generate buzz with American Grandstand, recently securing features on The Boot, Music City Roots, Nashville Sports & Entertainment Magazine, Nashville Country Club, Sounds Like Nashville, Roughstock, Nashville Access and more. Vincent will also appear on Heartland TV’s “Bluegrass Ridge,” where she will be the guest host for 4 consecutive weeks, beginning the week of July 10. Throughout each episode, she will share some of her most career-defining moments, and what led her to the latest venture. Vincent and Singletary are also giving fans an inside glimpse of tracks from the latest album with exclusive videos featured on The Country Note, The Daily Country, Roughstock, Nashville Country Club, Lovin’ Lyrics and more.

Fans got the first taste of American Grandstand with the lead single, “One.” The dynamic pair originally performed the song together in 2016 at the legendary Grand Ole Opry, which ultimately led them to record the song, originally made famous by country icons George Jones and Tammy Wynette. Each track includes their unique spin with their feel-good, distinctive vocals.

In addition to upcoming tour dates together, fans were treated to multiple performances as both artists teamed up for CMA Music Fest in Nashville, which was included in Rolling Stone Country’s 20 Best Free Concerts. Fans can catch Vincent, who the Wall Street Journal dubbed “The New Queen of Bluegrass,” at festivals and venues throughout North America, while fans in central Europe will get a chance to catch the most award winning band in bluegrass music, Rhonda Vincent & The Rage, when they return in September (see dates below).
