Rhonda Vincent Films CMT.com's Studio 330 Sessions
Web Surfers Go Behind The Scenes

Nashville, TN - Rounder recording artist Rhonda Vincent recently stopped by the downtown Nashville CMT studios to film a segment of CMT.com's new online feature "STUDIO 330 SESSIONS." "I'm really excited to be a part of this new and innovative feature on CMT.com. I spend hours on my bus traveling from city to city and surf the web constantly. STUDIO 330 SESSIONS gives fans the chance to see us perform and also, while they're on the site, they can get all sorts of information and view photos of not only us, but also many other performing artists. It's like having 'all access' to our day to day lives," stated Vincent.

Vincent and her band The Rage performed "I've Forgotten You," "Jolene," "You Can't Take It with You When You Go" and "Last Best Place" all songs from Vincent's current CD/DVD project, Ragin' Live. Although the atmosphere is 'backstage one on one' style, verses the formal setting of the DVD which was recorded at the elegant Shelton Theater in St. Louis, it affords web surfers to get a taste of what is available on the Ragin' Live project right from their personal computers. Vincent's segment will begin airing on CMT.com at noon Central on Tuesday, April 19th,

STUDIO 330 SESSIONS is a unique presentation of informal performances from established country stars and exciting new artists. Taped at CMT's Nashville studio, STUDIO 330 SESSIONS features stripped down, spontaneous performances of new material and signature hits streamed exclusively on CMT.com. Each Tuesday a new performer will be added to the STUDIO 330 SESSIONS lineup. In addition to intimate performances, fans can find biographical information, tour dates, photos, discography, message boards and related Web links on CMT.com.

Rhonda Vincent Fans Get Ready to TIVO
"I've Forgotten You" Video a 'CMT Sneak Peak '

Nashville, TN - For those fans eager to view Rhonda Vincent's new Rounder Records video "I've Forgotten You" rumor has it that CMT TV will do a "Sneak Peak" on Thursday, April 21st during their "Top Twenty Countdown." Viewer's will be treated to seeing the video prior to it's arrival on the network's "World Premier" on "Wide Open Country" on April 24th .

With "I've Forgotten You" Vincent exhibits her extensive acting skills, playing opposite gorgeous actor, Ben Browning. Vincent expertly delves into the dilemma faced by the lead character, whose mind doesn't want to "forget" this beautiful past love. Vincent shines as her character unwillingly finds herself remembering the couple's tender moments together and shows the unwanted pain she experiences now that they are no longer a couple. "It wasn't hard to pretend to be infatuated with Ben. He's gorgeous; the next Ashton Kutcher," exuded Vincent in describing her video experience. "He even made the snow sledding scenes HOT."

Each week, Top Twenty Countdown host, Lance Smith, counts down the week's top videos on CMT TV, as well as sharing the No. 1 video from 2004. He'll be slipping in the 'sneak peak' of Vincent's "I've Forgotten You" into the two and a half hour program.

The video which was filmed in various Washington locales including the Cascade Mountains, Puget Sound and Seattle, as well as Nashville, TN., was produced and directed by Avenue B Pictures' Brent Hedgecock. "I've Forgotten You" is Vincent's current radio single and is from her just released DVD/CD project on Rounder, "Ragin' Live"

My songs are bipolar...
either way upbeat...
often to the point of slapstick comedy,
or way down in the dumps.

I have tried to explain this to people who have asked,
but I never got it quite right.
Let me try again.

I've been in some hopeless places,
and humor was my defense against fear and depression.
I guess that shows up in my funny material.

When I write the real downers,
I’m mostly writing from personal experience,
and I’d like to think I’m speaking for the people
who are currently living in those little hells.
Maybe my words can make them think about getting out.

Sometimes we live in mind prisons that look real,
but maybe we can break out
if we’re not afraid to take a chance.
Leaving the rut we're used to is seldom easy.
Prisoners can get attached to their cells.

Here’s a song I wrote about a couple
who are going through the pain of a big life change.


(He sings)
Second Tuesday in December,
icy rain is falling down
I took the bus out to the city line,
and then I watched it turn around.
Now as I walk down past the junkyard
by the closed-up drive-in show
I realize that really leaving
is the only way I'll ever go.

(She sings)
It was the seventh of September,
nineteen hundred sixty nine
95 degrees and rising,
we crossed the Pennsylvania line.
We paid a judge our last ten dollars
to bless us with his legal seal.
I guess that putting love on paper
doesn't always make it real

Second Tuesday in December,
icy rain is coming down.
All the snow that's left from Monday
lies gray and frozen on the ground
It's hard to understand this feeling
that a part of me is gone
Second Tuesday in December...
Looks like winter's coming on.

Anne just received this in an email today, this is a great accomplishment for her poetic side! Read the attached message she received below, and thanks for your continued support of this artist!

Curtis Andrews/CEO/PRES./ Ready Records

Dear Anne,

Over the past several months, we have been reviewing the thousands of poems submitted to us, as well as examining the poetic accomplishments of people whose poetry has appeared on the Internet and in various editions released by other poetry publishers in America and Europe. After an exhaustive examination of this poetic artistry, The International Library of Poetry is pleased to inform you that you have been nominated for inclusion in ..

The International Who's Who in Poetry

Congratulations on your accomplishment, Anne. We look forward to publishing your biographical information on a page dedicated entirely to you. Along with your biographical information, we plan to also include in depth information about your poetry, including your motivations, the meaning poetry has in your life, and your personal philosophical point of view. In addition to dedicating a page entirely to you and your personal background, we have also reserved a second complete page that will be used to showcase a new, unpublished poem that you will provide. This means that ..

The International Who's Who in Poetry will feature two full pages dedicated exclusively to Anne Brehm!
The International Who's Who in Poetry will be among the finest quality and most interesting books we have ever produced. Poets from several nations around the world will be featured. Every aspect of publication and design will display an uncompromising level of craftsmanship and attention to detail. This four hundred page coffee-table quality book will be printed in two colors on fine milled paper and will feature a highly detailed, ornate cover, and quality typography throughout. It will make a handsome addition to any library, a treasured family keepsake, or a highly valued personal gift.
Before going any further, Anne, let me make one thing clear ... you were selected for inclusion in this project based on your unique talent and previous poetic accomplishments. We believe you to be one of the most interesting poets we have encountered, so we have set aside two entire pages that will be devoted exclusively to you and your poetry in this special edition. In order to make our scheduled publication date, you must submit your biographical information and your new poem as soon as possible. Please feel free to include whatever personal information about yourself and your poetry that you feel would be of most interest to the reader. The new poem you submit must be original and written by you. Your poem may be 24 lines or less, on any subject, and in any style.

Again, congratulations, Anne. We enjoy your poetic artistry and look forward to dedicating two entire pages to you and your poetry in The International Who's Who in Poetry.


Howard Ely
Managing Editor
P.S. Anne, you should be genuinely proud of your accomplishment. You have been nominated to participate in The International Who's Who in Poetry because of your poetic accomplishments. We are pleased that two entire pages of this historic edition will be dedicated exclusively to you and your poetry.

PeteSchlegel-bw.jpg (4241 bytes)Country music artist Pete Schlegel will be hitting the road this May on his “Pour Me One” Tour. The tour will hit 18 cities across the Midwest in support of his new single, “Somethin’ Strong,” from his current CD Strong Stuff.

Pete Schlegel has had 3 national U.S. releases. “Short For Gone” spent 14 weeks on the Music Row charts before peaking at 51 in March 2004. The second release, “Leaving Ain’t As Easy As It Sounds,” spent 15 weeks on the Music Row charts before peaking at 54 in September 2004. Schlegel was chosen by Great American Country as the “Hot Pick” artist for November and December 2004 with the video for his third single, "It Takes A Whole Lotta Liquor To Like Her”. “Liquor to Like Her” has also been receiving airplay on VH1 Country.

Pete Schlegel’s music isn’t easily tagged, but a guitar-driven, up-tempo, honky-tonk sound describes it best. Reminiscent of his inspirations, Ernest Tubb, George Jones, and Brooks & Dunn, Schlegel’s sound is timeless. Schlegel’s vocals are delivered just the way they’re written: genuinely. No pretension or glossy over-production, just the range of human emotions and experience of one man.

For more information, please contact Laura Claffey at publicityhouse@comcast.net  or 615-825-0019. Please add the show/s in your area to your events calendar. Photos, music, show tickets for reviews, and interviews available by request.
