WHAT’S REALLY IMPORTANT FOR TRISHA YEARWOOD

TrishaYearwood2.jpg (6331 bytes)This past year, Trisha has been about reflecting on the things that really matter, and the Georgia native finds herself in a great place: “I got to a point where I began asking ‘if something happens to me tomorrow, what do I want to be doing today?’ I stopped doing things I didn’t want to do and stopped worrying about what people might say about the things I was gonna do,” notes Trisha. “And some of that just comes with age…it’s wonderful.

So that process spilled over into the new [Big Machine] deal. Let’s go for the things that really matter and have fun and enjoy everything. I’ve got that going in my personal life and I have an opportunity to do that in my professional life.” Trisha is currently in the studio working on her first studio album for Big Machine Records. The Grammy-winner also recorded a duet with Reba McEntire for Reba’s upcoming Duets project. Trisha joined Reba on the song “She Can’t Save Him”, set for release on September 18th.

The Charlie Daniels Band Releases Live From Iraq CD On Blue Hat/Koch Records June 26th


Tuesday, June 26th, The Charlie Daniels Band will release their newest album, “Live From Iraq” (Blue Hat/Koch Records). The two disc set includes thirteen songs picked from four performances recorded in Iraq when the Charlie Daniels Band performed for US/Multinational Troops as part of the Stars for Stripes Tour.

The war-torn country of Iraq is the backdrop for Live From Iraq, which is The Charlie Daniels Band's 19th release on Blue Hat Records.

The release features a bonus DVD containing never before seen documentary footage including an Easter service in Ur at the House of Abraham. During the band's time in Iraq, they entertained and visited with troops fighting the war on terror. They made stops in Arifjan, Baghdad, Tallil, Fallujah and other operating bases.

“I’ll never forget my trips to Iraq, having the honor of visiting with the heroes so far away from home who stand in harms way daily to keep the torch of freedom burning brightly. It is with great love, admiration, respect and gratitude that I dedicate this project to the men and women who wear the military uniform of The United States of America, past, present and future," says Daniels.

While promoting the release, Charlie Daniels will be making a series of appearances in Washington, DC. He is scheduled to appear on Fox News Channel’s Hannity & Colmes on Monday (6-25) and The Bill Bennett Show on Tuesday (6-26). Interviews with Daniels on Voice of America’s Live Music Show, Border Crossings with host Larry London and The Pentagon Channel will air over the July 4th weekend. Also that weekend is a one-hour radio special, produced by Huntsman Entertainment, on radio stations across the country. In the special, Daniels shares his thoughts and feelings from the tour.

CAPTION LABEL SET FOR "NEXT BEST THING"

Los Angeles, CA, June 25, 2007 - Caption records, the new independent record label formed by brothers Tom Weir & Larry Weir will get a lift from the television series the "Next Best Thing" (ABC-TV) Wednesday, June 27th. Recording artist Buck McCoy, the first country artist signed to the Caption label, will be seen by millions on their semi-finals, just as the label releases his debut Top Dog album, featuring the single "A Few Steps Away". The new single is already breaking on the New Music Weekly & Music Row charts, and the word is spreading fast. This Grand Prairie Texas native has a resemblance to Country superstar Tim McGraw, but the comparison stops there.

"I first saw him perform at the New Music Weekly Awards & he amazed me with his powerful style and stage presence", says radio program director Randy Adams at KFLS(Klamath Falls, OR) who already has Buck?s single in his Top 5 this week. "Buck McCoy is just a "few steps away" from stardom", notes program director Jay Walker from KTTI/FM (Yuma, AZ).

Larry Weir who runs the Heartland Entertainment Group, co-produced the 12 song album along with Tom Weir who mixed and engineered from his Studio City Sound in Southern California. Tom Weir recently won a Grammy for his work with Toots and the Maytals. Buck also joins female Country singer Kim McAbee, who worked with the late Buck Owens for a decade at the famous Crystal Palace for the duet "We Belong Together". The CD includes several strong ballads, and he even pays tribute to his favorite rock star with "My Moment With Sheryl Crow".

The first single release from the Caption label, "Finest Hour" by Sara Niemietz & Blake Ewing from Teen Witch, already broke on the Adult Contemporary charts at Mediabase & hit #1* on the AC40 at New Music Weekly and on the IMN Top30 countdown. The second single "Popular Girl" was just shipped to radio and expectations from the music industry are running high. "Our Teen Witch magic also continue d with an airing of the original 80?s movie over the weekend on the ABC Family Network", says Tom Weir who has also worked with the likes of Gwen Stefani, Natasha Bedingfield, Anna Nalick among others.

This fall the label will be supplying music from its artists in the feature film "Moondance Alexander", directed by Michael Damian, starring Lori Loughlin, Kay Panabaker, Don Johnson & Sasha Cohen. The film became a recent "winner" at the Newport Film Festival and will be distributed by Fox Faith, a division of 20 th Century Fox Films.

Bayside distributes product from Caption with digital distribution from N-Grooves. Both CD albums from Teen Witch & Buck McCoy are available now at Amazon.com. Visitwww.captionrecords.com and for more information contact Caption Records at 323-658-7449.

Skyla Spencer tells caller "You Said You'd Call Me"!

Skyla-caller.jpg (4618 bytes)Nashville, TN - Skyla Spencer performed "You Said You'd Call Me", the title cut from her current album, at the Full Moon Saloon during the CMA Festival in Nashville. "You Said You'd Call Me" is a funny, up-beat song written by Skyla and produced by Ted Hewitt.

"It is always fun to perform this song on stage," says Skyla. "I like to incorporate some acting into the song. The guy calls me up at the end of the song and is giving me all these excuses about why he hasn't called. It's fun to play with different scenerios. I like being creative with it and get the crowd going."

Peter Britt

Hi everyone....

I wanted to share some news with everyone. Something my record label has been working on just happened today I found out.

As of today, my music is live worldwide on itunes! I am very excited about it. Being on itunes is a very cool thing indeed and
it offers a degree of exposure that is phenomenal. So if you have itunes, go get some Peter Britt music. If you don't, go
download itunes, then go get some! I've been waiting for over 12 weeks for the record label to get this all in place, and it
finally is now. You can get the cd, or a single track on itunes and there will be more there soon.
I hope you go and check it out and download some music, but I wanted to share this news with everyone I know.
Thanks to all my friends and fans for your support and for putting up with me and my messages. I do appreciate all the
friendships I have and I thank you all for your continued support. :)
