GAC's "MASTER SERIES" SET TO SPONSOR
RONNIE MILSAP'S "#1 HITS TOUR
GAC's "Master Series" named
the official media sponsor for
Ronnie Milsap's 2008 Tour
(Nashville, TN) - Great American Country's
(GAC) "Master Series" has joined forces with multi-Grammy winning
country and pop music artist, Ronnie Milsap for his 2008 "#1 Hits
Tour," booked exclusively by Buddy Lee Attractions.
"It's great news for the fans and myself," says Ronnie. "With GAC
partnering with me on this 2008 tour, the fans will not only have the
opportunity to see me live but also have access via GAC and their
website." Beginning in June and running through the end of the year, GAC
will create excitement and exposure for the tour through a "Master
Series" media partnership package. The sponsorship will capitalize on a
multi-tactical marketing approach providing exposure for Ronnie Milsap's
tour utilizing both GAC and GACTV.com.
GAC will utilize its network for on-air mentions and promotions and its
website for streaming interviews and features from the tour. GAC's
"Master Series" with Bill Cody will mention the tour on-air and shoot in
studio or on location from the tour.
"GAC has sponsored many tours but this opportunity allowed us to tie our
Master Series show directly to an artist with so many number one hits,"
says Scott Durand, vice president of marketing for GAC." GAC's Master
Series focuses on the great artists and their songs and Ronnie's tour
was a perfect fit."
Born into poverty in the Appalachian town of Robbinsville, North
Carolina, Ronnie was born blind and shortly after his first birthday, he
was cast off and given to his grandmother to raise. Taking refuge in
music and radio as a child served Ronnie well as he honed his talents
and has become pre-eminent country soul singer of his generation. His
first #1 hit came in 1974 with "Pure Love." This was the first of
Ronnie's 40 #1 hits. Throughout his career, Ronnie has won 6 Grammy
Awards, 4 ACM Awards, 8 CMA Awards and has sold more than 30 million

Country music legend Mel Tillis will receive IFCO's (the International
Fan Club Organization) Tex Ritter Award at the 2008 IFCO Fun Fest Show .

country music, the music community, and fans everywhere. This year's
show will be held Wednesday, June 4th at 7:00 p.m. at Cadillac Ranch
(305 Broadway) in Nashville, Tennessee. Tillis began performing in the
early 50s with The Westerners while serving as a baker in the United
States Air Force, stationed in Okinawa. In 1956, Webb Pierce recorded a
song written by Mel titled "Iım Tired," and it launched Melıs career. He
has written well over 1,000 songs, and approximately 600 have been
recorded by major artists, including "Ruby, Donıt Take Your Love To
Town" Kenny Rogers, "Emotions" Brenda Lee, "Detroit City" Bobby Bare,
and "Honey" (Open That Door) Ricky Skaggs.
As an artist Mel has recorded more than sixty albums, had thirty-six top
ten singles, with nine of them going to number one: "Good Woman Blues,"
"Coca Cola Cowboy," and "Southern Rain," to mention a few. One of Melıs
most popular recordings is the Old Dogs album with Bobby Bare, Waylon
Jennings, and Jerry Reed.

The Federal Communications Commission is considering allowing consumer
wireless devices to operate in the same spectrum, known as white space,
as wireless equipment used in live performances. On May 13 the Grand Ole
Opry, CMT/MTV Networks, CMA, Fitzgerald Hartley management, Dove Awards
producer SGTV, and audio engineers for the Doves and CMT Awards SeisMic
Sound called on the FCC to maintain its "cautious" approach when making
a decision. Interference with wireless microphones could affect
everything from in-ear monitors to wireless intercoms, as well as other
essentials such as cueing systems. The
aforementioned groups believe that Microsoft, Google, Motorola, and
others are trying to downplay the importance of continued FCC technical
testing, which they say has resulted in a poor performance prototype for
sharing the white space. The groups do not want to share the space
without fail-safe interference. Other companies such as Shure have also
filed with the FCC to promote further testing. ~ (Sarah Skates, @musicrow,
