MKOC Review of John Berry Posted on
I don't think this has ever happened before so it's very
flattering and I feel quite honored. Some of John Berry's fans saw the review I did of his
latest CD, "Hits". I received emails from a few of them thanking me for the
review and a day or so later, I got another email from one, Debbie, stating the following:
You probably already know this. Your review is on John's site now!! It first appeared as a
link in a post from a fan. That's how I found it. Now, for those who don't subscribe to
the forum can read it. Thanks again so much for the great review! Take care.

We Have not been online, have been in
Branson and watching Talya while the kids get the new show off and perfect. It is terrific
and getting a lot of very nice comments as usual. How they do all that work is beyond me

This is the actual 1st week that Talya was singing all alone, singing her little heart out

Learning by watching, she now is in love with the ballet dancers and can follow every step
they take as she performs off stage on the front row while show goes on ... Drawing tons
of attention & Loving it! ..
We have been trying to make a little clip of just her .. So you all can get a hint about
what she is doing. A beautiful yellow Shirley Temple like dress and she has long long hair
and a Princess Crown, and she struts out on that stage like she has been performing all
her life. She grabs the mic and starts her performance singing and doing her little moves
.. To the hit song if the forties "You Are My Sunshine". You sure do not want to
The show is as every bit as good as it ever was plus, has a real lot of new surprises in
store. More costume changes, more musical Instruments and lots of different kind of
dancing plus .. Joe and Tamra are now getting the reputation as two of Branson's Top Show
producers. They Both look forward to seeing you this Holiday Season, soon to be upon us.

Lee Greenwood's "Inspirational Songs" Album
If inspiration is what you are trying to find,
then Lee Greenwoods re-release of Inspirational Songs is where you will find it.
This album contains eleven re-recorded songs that will lift even the heaviest of sprits.
They range from Lees heart-felt rendition of Amazing Grace to the
soulful up-beat tune Bound for the Promise Land. However, if this is enough,
what Lee album is complete without the timeless classic God Bless the USA,
which is the feature of this compilation.
I think my choice of material has been an asset to my career. People recognize that
I choose songs that have quality and are not cheap shots, says Greenwood. I
always record songs that have more depth in the lyric. I am a songwriter and I go for
depth. Maybe thats what has made me have a lasting career.
Years of performing have taught Lee how to connect with his fans. His selective taste of
songs, combined with his distinctive voice, makes this re-release a must have for any

COLLIN RAYE RELEASES NEW CONCEPT ALBUM WITH
(Nashville, TN) The new
Collin Raye "SELECTED HITS" album is unique in that it contains six great songs
and is available exclusively at Wal-Mart stores for under $6. In addition to two new songs
("A Soldier's Prayer" and the equally powerful "Quitters") the album
contains four of Collin's biggest hits ("That's My Story," "Little
Rock," "I Think About You" and "Love Me" ) all recorded
"live" with the Salt Lake Symphony Orchestra in front of an audience of 8000 who
sang along. It is first time that live recordings of these have been available and there
is a six-minute interview with Collin as a bonus feature.
Produced by Alabama's Teddy Gentry and Michael Curtis, Raye believes this new CD is the
wave of the future. "People can purchase this CD for less than they can download
these songs and they get to hear me talk about the songs, their origins and special
qualities as well," says Collin.

All American Bluegrass Ambassador - Rhonda Vincent
For Immediate Release - GSTAAD, SWITZERLAND - Rhonda Vincent & The Rage introduced
what Ragin' LIVE is all about; before an International audience, during the 19th Annual
Country Nights Festival in Gstaad, Switzerland on September 21 & 22, 2007.
Two SOLD OUT evenings of enthusiastic International country music fans, traveled thousands
of miles from many countries; including France, Italy, Germany, Slovenia, Spain, Canada,
Switzerland, and many others to join in the village wide festival.
For some it was their first exposure to bluegrass, and an impression they won't soon
forget. Rhonda and her group received standing ovations and encore performances on both
nights. The crowd jumped to their feet in the middle of their first show, as Hunter Berry,
(a 5-time Fiddle Player of the Year at the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music
of America) performed the title song from his new solo project "Wow Baby," and
continued to pound their feet causing a great roar, as the crowd insisted on more of the
song, of which Rhonda and her group obliged. This was repeated on the second night when
Kenny Ingram played the "Foggy Mountain Breakdown".
"Tonight is a great night for bluegrass in Switzerland," stated Rosi Miller of
the Swiss Bluegrass Music Association. "This is a landmark occasion for bluegrass
music in Europe!" The organization was there with brochures and information about
bluegrass music. www.bluegrass.ch/
On their final encore performance, festival promoter Marcel Bach joined them onstage, and
insisted they play "Wow Baby" once again for their final song. And the crowd
Rhonda and every member of her group, (Hunter Berry, Mickey Harris, Kenny Ingram, and Josh
Williams), received a thunderous reception, and was quickly deemed the "hit of the
festival" by the crowd of fans surrounding Rhonda as she greeted each one for
signatures and photos after the show.
Also appearing at the festival were Riders In The Sky, Julie Roberts, and Randy Travis.
The entire entourage was treated to four days of Swiss culture. Riding a roller coaster
amidst a snow topped Glacier, viewing the Matterhorn, and listening to the songs of the
cows, as they paraded through town decorated with flowers and bells of all sizes, shapes,
Check out Rhonda's daily messages and photos from Gstaad, on her message board at
Rhonda Vincent & The Rage will also perform at the International Bluegrass Music
Awards on October 4, 2007 in Nashville, TN at the Grand Ole Opry House. Rhonda Vincent
& The Rage collectively received 12 nominations.
"We would love to take them all home," Rhonda states, "Regardless of the
outcome, it is an honor to receive these nominations, and join with our friends in
bluegrass for a night that honors everyone for their hard work, performing at bluegrass
festivals and venues like Gstaad, all across the world!"

TRISHA ZOOMS UP THE CMT CHART
Yearwood is watching her first up-tempo solo single in nine years quickly climb the
charts, and for the two-time CMA Female Vocalist Of The Year, finding quality up-tempo
songs is always a challenge: I think it is harder for me to find up-tempo
songs, notes Trisha. Heaven, Heartache And The Power Of Love
works, I think, because it still touches that nerve in people that makes them relate to
the lyric, like a great ballad does, but it makes you want to dance along at the same
time. I just think the song is fun. The fun songs video jumps into
the Top 10 on the CMT
Top 20 Countdown next week. more!

Jack Blanchard & Misty Morgan
This is the cover of our next 29 song CD album
on Velvet Saw Records.
Right now we have too many songs,
and we're trying to decide which ones to cut.
Some of them have never been on a CD or an album of any kind...
never heard outside of friends and family.
Title came from the fact that
these are ghost voices from our distant past...
recordings we made together and separately,
under "Jack Blanchard & Misty Morgan",
and also a number of aliases.
We were just learning who we were supposed to be.
And there are a few that we cut later that somehow
slipped between the black and white keys and were lost.
It should be ready to go in a few weeks.
Forgive us if we're kinda excited. :)

XM Clears The
Air..."Willie's Place" Not Changing - Just Getting Better...!!!
Wednesday - 26 September 2007
headline: Response From XM Radio To Opinion Article By Tracy
Short text: Ray Knight - Senior Director of Country Programming /
XM Satellite Radio
Text: Believe me; we are NOT dropping the Texas artists or the
"oldies". Between Willies 13 and America 10 we will always support the
Texas music scene, or any scene for that matter that keeps the traditional sound of
country alive. That is after all, our future. While there is Texas artists still played
every hour we are putting even more into the mix as we move forward. However, please keep
in mind this is our traditional country format, and is not meant to be only
Texas based artists. They will always be spread out amongst: America,
Willies, and even XCountry.
Between the three channels Texas is and will continue to be super served. You
will find no one more committed to the lesser know artists than myself. I have
been supporting them for 25 years, and will continue. If anything, you will notice more
Texas artists as we move forward into October and not less.
All we are doing is adding in some more of the traditional artists from the past which can
NOT be heard in 99 percent of the country. How can we forget the legends of the past?
Thank you for taking the time to write in, and feel free to call me at your convenience if
youd like to discuss further. Please pass along to anyone you would like.
