Gary Allan Does What He Sings
A line in the current Top 15 Gary Allan single, "A Feelin' Like That" references skydiving, which Gary has actually done - but just once. He says, "Skydiving is something that somebody took me to do for my birthday for a few years back. I did a tandem jump where someone is strapped to your back. That was pretty cool. It was 40 seconds of rush and I don't think I ever need to do that again!"

Cheryl K Warner

CherylKWarner.jpg (3533 bytes)Cheryl K Warner will be releasing “Dreams,” the first single off of her upcoming cd, on April 1! “Dreams” will be released on WHP #76 and CDX #420.

“Dreams,” a very romantic song that makes you feel a personal longing of the heart, was written by Matt Dorman in 2002. Ironically, the idea for “Dreams” came to Dorman in a dream. “The song wrote itself when I woke up,” says Dorman. “What gets me is every time I hear it, I get a haunting feeling that it means something more than I can grasp.”

“I could not get “Dreams” out of mind after hearing it,” says Cheryl K. “There was something about it that lingered and made me want to sing it…I believe that "Dreams" is both mystical and captivating, lyrically as well as musically.”

Combining the honesty of her country roots with the heart of gospel and the energy of rock, Cheryl K.’s voice provides a mirror in which her listeners see reflections of their lives and of their dreams.

The Fantasy CD, which includes “Dreams”, is scheduled for release in Fall of 2007.

For more information, please contact Laura at Laura@WildfirePublicity.net or 615-825-0019. Photos, “Dreams” MP3/cd, and interviews available to the media by request. MP3s are also available to radio on our download page or through Airplay Direct.

Pre-Order New Musikmesse Gear at Musician's Friend

NewMusicWeekly.jpg (6025 bytes)
From The Editor's Desk:


Los Angeles, CA - It is always a treat to head out of Los Angeles to Nashville for the CRS (Country Radio Seminar). It gives us a chance to hook up with old friends and to make lots of new ones. The major labels were in "full force" and plenty of independent labels, recording artists and bands as well. Many of our promotion folks were well attended from our local neighbors Alan Young and Debbie Gibson Palmer to others that were centrally located from Debbie Green, James Williams, Bill Wence, Chris Taylor and the always lovable Jerry Duncan among others. Without this illustrious gang, there would be no New Music Weekly and we thank them for their support.

Country recording artists were also in abundance from the likes of Darryl Worley, Jeff Carson, Pam Tillas to Little Texas, Lantana, Burrito Deluxe to name just a few. The media room at CRS was buzzing with lots of activity directed by Jeff Walker assisted by product manager Christy Walker. Major and independent label artists were all prepped and ready to talk about their releases, and we were there to cover their stories and hear their pitches. Unlike any other format, Country artists seem to come very well prepared and they seem to always do their homework. This makes it quite a breeze for us.

Radio stations still managed to get many of their music and program directors out and about. We ran into New Music Weekly reporter Mike Betten and his wife Janet in the media room. Mike does programming for both Country KLMJ and mainstream radio KQCR in Hampton, IA and that underscored the fact that many programmers in attendance deal with multi-formats. Also caught up with NMW winner Lee Richey WJTW (Warsaw, NY) NMW nominee Mike Thomas from KFAV (Warrenton, MO) and Lex Broadcasting’s Steve and Betty Martin to name just a few.

Our chief correspondent Buck McCoy was in top form having arrived early in the week and even got the chance to perform some magic tricks in the infamous bridge bar at the end of each evening. Capitol put on a great luncheon headlined by Trace Adkins and the New Faces show was the big closer of the week. For this main event there were some surprises. Kix Brooks from Brooks and Dunn hosted the evening and had some great stories to tell. Charley Monk was as funny as ever and hit hard with some strong and stinging jokes. Recording artists were in no short supply during the evening and ranged from Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, Jack Ingram to Trent Tomlinson and Rodney Atkins. One of our favorite moments was when Bill Dana showed up on stage and did a funny bit with Kix Brooks. He had us rolling in the isles & it was truly a great CRS moment.

The "after-hours" found Jewel sitting in with Big & Rich and it doesn’t get any better than that. Parties continued all night long and the Bridge Bar held court to more Country artists and record people than it could accommodate. Seems that their new "no smoking" policy had little effect on the turn out up there. For most of us it was another grand affair that allowed us to cover a lot of valuable ground in a rather short period of time and partaking in some much needed refreshments when the time was right. That time was right just about the entire time, and now we are paying the price.

This is also our Future Hits volume #29 issue. In this weeks magazine you will find our music sampler with some of the best new artists and releases out there. Make sure to take some time and check out this great collection of music. Many of the artists on independent labels deserve not only our attention but strong and honest support. This is your opportunity as radio programmers for to take the lead and help to break some new and exciting artists. Future Hits continues to provide a great service of getting new artists and their releases out to radio and at a fraction of what it would cost to do it themselves. The mailing alone is worth it and the sampler is going to those who can really make things happen for new artists. Hey, we’re talking about you!
