    Ask Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, or Bono about the roots of Irish Music, and they will point you to the McPeake Family!

    The four generations of the McPeake Family are one of those rare Irish gems that have been whispered as ‘folk-royalty.’ Their beloved song “Wild Mountain Thyme” has been on the lips of music lovers across the globe - in Irish pubs, concert halls, and music festivals worldwide - since it was first performed in the late 1940s. This hauntingly beautiful folk anthem has been covered by music superstars such as Glen Frey (The Eagles), Rod Stewart, Bob Dylan and Judy Collins, to name but a very few. It is the Celtic equivalent of Country Music’s “Will The Circle Be Unbroken”.

    Francis McPeake I penned “Wild Mountain Thyme;” Francis McPeake II influenced Van Morrison, Pete Seeger and Bob Dylan; Francis McPeake III taught John Lennon the Uilleann Pipes; and now Francis McPeake IV - who has worked with iconic Hollywood film companies, such as Walden Media, and Academy Award-winning actors - has formed the vibrant new band McPEAKE.

    Figuring prominently in the EMMY Award-winning PBS Special “Music of Ireland,” McPEAKE is taking the world of Celtic music by storm with its own contemporary brand of self-penned songs and compositions. Since their initial tour of USA in 2009, McPEAKE are now on the main stages of the USA festival circuit, performing regularly to audiences in excess 10,000 people. The new generation of this legendary family has developed a distinctive sound that is totally immersed in the popular culture of today, while maintaining a firm anchor in the influences of past generations.

    McPEAKE’s unique blend of Indie, Country, Folk and Irish music attracts widely diverse audiences that might not otherwise commingle. Fans consistently use superlatives such as fresh, authentic, original, and dazzling to describe the experience that is – McPEAKE!

    Jealous of the Sky is a moving perspective on loss and the beautiful chorus melody is certain to attract an emotional response from those who have loved and lost. It just might be one of the most beautiful love songs of its time.

    After releasing two co-writes for his first two singles from his forthcoming album, Marty has turned to Aussie country stars, husband and wife Rod McCormack and Gina Jeffreys, for his third single to follow ‘Graceland on the line’ and ‘We Had a Good Thing Goin’. Jealous of the Sky is a moving perspective on loss and the beautiful chorus melody is certain to attract an emotional response from those who have loved and lost. It just might be one of the most beautiful love songs of its time.

    The beauty of this song is well complimented by a stunning music video filmed at Hanging Rock, the location for the feature film ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’, and ideally captures some of the mystique and atmosphere of that iconic film. Many listeners and viewers of the music video will relate to the story in the song and its emotional beauty. This will only heighten the experience and the memories it leaves behind.

    Marty Rhone’s career as a singer & actor has no boundaries and one that few can match. A support to the Rolling Stones at just 17 and appearances with John Denver, Christopher Cross & the Bee Gees. No1 hit records, the London West End stage with Yul Brynner, a Broadway musical revival with Lou Diamond Phillips (Longmire, La Bamba), film & TV roles. When Marty isn’t writing or performing you might see him on AMC, Hulu and CBS in shows Preacher, Harrow and Bull respectively. It might explain why this Melbourne, Australia guy makes LA his home.

    Chuck Mead has been upending expectations and walking the line between hardcore country music and raucous rock ’n’ roll for the better part of 25 years. As a member of the alternative country music quintet BR5-49 in the early 1990s, Mead fused rock ’n’ roll excitement with the soul of the Music City’s honky tonk heritage, sparking the rebirth of Nashville’s Lower Broadway music scene. Over the course of the late ’90s and the early 21st century, he recorded seven albums with BR-549 and spread the gospel of neo-traditional country music around the world, garnering the band a CMA Award for Best International Touring Act and three Grammy nominations. Moving on from BR-549 Mead has recorded three successful solo albums and served as the Musical Director/Supervisor/Producer of the hit Broadway musical Million Dollar Quartet, as well as the companion CMT dramatic series, Sun Records.

    “Big Bear In The Sky” is the first Single from Chuck’s new album “Close To Home”.
    Rolling Stone - http://bit.ly/2RFGf1a

    The 11-track Close To Home album was recorded at the historic Sam Phillips Recording Studios in Memphis, Tenn., the album was produced by acclaimed Memphis recording engineer and producer Matt Ross-Spang. Ross-Spang has earned a reputation as one of the top engineers and producers in the Americana and roots music scene and hailed by Rolling Stone as “one of the most trusted arbiters of the modern Memphis sound,” who has worked with a who’s-who of roots artists, among them 61st Grammy Award nominees John Prine, Jason Isbell and Margo Price. He notched the Grammy for engineering Isbell’s The Nashville Sound (as he did for 2015’s Something More Than Free); co-produced Price’s stunning debut, Midwest Farmer’s Daughter, and sophomore effort All American Made; and engineered Prine’s The Tree of Forgiveness.

    This video makes an important statement that could possibly save the life of one of your viewers. Here are some sobering statistics:
    • Most statistical studies show 22 veterans die by suicide every day. That equates to over 8,000 a year.
    • Total US Military killed in action in Iraq since 2003 = 3,481
    • Total US Military killed in action in Afghanistan between 2001 and 2014 = 1,833

    • We lose more veterans to suicide, every year, than we lost to enemy combat in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars combined...

    www.blackbirdanthem.com - Independent band, BLACKBIRD ANTHEM, is on a mission to help revive original southern rock music while giving back to the military veteran community. Founded by lead singer and songwriter, Adam C. Martin (U.S. Army combat veteran), the band creates a sound reminiscent to the age of vinyl where country, rock, and blues merged somewhere below the Mason-Dixon line. Their gift for channeling raw emotion into lyrics, fueled by passionate performances give fans an experience of the grit, beauty, and pride of the south.

Together the band evokes vivid imagery and brings their heartwarming stories to life.

    Joe Hermes is a Bloomington, Illinois-based singer/songwriter with a deeply emotive style that takes in rock, outlaw country, and the troubadour tradition. Joe is a strong-willed Old Soul with little regard for following the rules and fearlessly takes on difficult topics including spirituality, addiction, and loss. His debut release, Souls With Stones EP, comes out September 6th, 2019 and was recorded in Nashville with producer Allan Barclay.
    The record features guest appearances by many top aces, including guitar icon Brent Mason, Buddy Hyatt (former Toto Keyboardist), and standout vocalist Mike Farris, and is expected to bring Joe and his songs to a much larger audience. Difficult life circumstances kept him in and out of playing music most of his life but his talent and desire were always there.
    These days, he’s back in it to win it and has evolved into an emerging recording artist with the kind of personal authenticity that only comes from living. He also performs solo and with his band Sundown Renegade throughout the Midwest region. Now, Joe makes music for his own reasons. “I wouldn't know how else to keep sane,” he says, “It is my outlet and medium of choice to help communicate not only to myself but to others.”
    Influenced by a wide range of artists from Johnny Cash to Metallica, he sets no limits on himself and easily maintains his own original space. As a singer, his low-toned voice has been compared to Eddie Vedder, Creed, and Crash Test Dummies but, taken as a complete artist, Joe Hermes is his own man in every way, a modern performer who remains connected to the emotional Truth and Humanity of American music and makes those things feel more relevant than ever before. Americana fans who are looking for something real need to start listening.

    Mallory Johnson hails from Conception Bay South, Newfoundland & Labrador, but is currently based in Nashville, TN. The 2017 CCMA Spotlight Performance winner released her debut EP in 2018 which earned her the 2019 ECMA for Country Recording of the Year, and 3 MusicNL nominations for Country Artist, Rising Star, and Female Artist of the Year. Her debut single "Tupelo" hit #6 on the Canadian Country iTunes Top Songs list and found a home on GAC and CMT.com. Her following single "Good Mistake to Make" broke top 50 on the Music Row Chart and top 30 on the CDX Breakout Chart.
    Raised on icons like Dolly, Merle and Loretta, it’s no surprise that Mallory wanted to pursue Country Music. However, hailing from Newfoundland and Labrador, another genre of music is near and dear to her heart — Celtic music. Mallory started her professional career performing with the 6-time musical award winning and ECMA nominated Celtic family band “The Cormiers”.

    In May of 2018, Mallory released her debut self-titled ep (produced by Sammy Kershaw) which earned her the 2019 ECMA for Country Recording of the Year and 3 musical nominations for Country Artist, Rising Star and Female Artist of the Year. The ep includes songs written by hit-makers Gordie Sampson, Hillary Lindsey, Troy Verges, and Steve McEwan and is “…packed with rollicking guitar solos, heartfelt storytelling, and catchy melodies—all supporting Johnson’s voice, a controlled, fierce, and empathetic instrument at the heart of each track” - Melody Lau (SOCAN Magazine).

    Following an audition for the war thriller “Into the Wilderness,” Mallory was asked to both act and write music for the feature film. Directed by Richard de Witt and starring Shuler Hensley, Christopher-Lawson Palmer, and Kelly Shipe, the film is aiming to be released in 2020.

    On September 20th 2019, Mallory released two brand new songs as a digital 45 called a “double shot” (produced by Dustin Olyan). The project includes the singles “Hungover” (written by Mallory Johnson, Krystan Bellows, and Christie Huff) and “Drunk Mind, Sober Heart” (written by Mallory Johnson, Tenille Arts, and Krystan Bellows). “Hungover” has already received an honorable mention in the 19th annual NSAI song contest presented by CMT and Martin guitars and strings.

    Nick has always enjoyed all kinds of music. As a kid, he especially loved singers with a deep bass voice.
    With his own rich country voice, just for the fun of it, Nick started singing covers of his favorite country artists like Trace Adkins and Josh Turner. When his mom, Cherie Brennan, award-winning inspirational country singer/songwriter, heard him singing, she asked if he’d ever thought of doing it for real.
    Nick had just graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in journalism. He hadn’t found a job yet, so he agreed to sing on a new song his mom had just written for him, “Buck Naked”. No sooner had they started to work on it when Nick received a job offer 1,500 miles from home in Marquette, MI. He took the offer to be the weekend anchor, producer, and reporter for NBC TV6.
    After his two-year assignment ended, he returned home to Jacksonville, Florida to jump into country music. Current country single at radio now, "It's a Good Time To Fall in Love". Find out more about Nick at nickbrennanmusic.com.

    http://www.NancyHays.com- Nancy Hays & her daughters Mary and Caroline sing "Mr. Santa" in the style of the Andrew Sisters "Mr. Sandman". Matthew Heffernan accompanies on fiddle. Music video choreography by Matt Crowle, vocal arrangement by Robert Ollis. Produced by Randy Gardner. Frank Trace & Jo Thompson have choreographed an easy, fun line dance to it!

    Nancy Hays is a professional singer, dancer, actor and entertainer. Nancy has worked as an opening act for major artists including Conway Twitty, Lee Greenwood, George Burns, Ronnie Milsap, Glen Campbell, Danny Thomas, Rita Rudner, The Smothers Brothers, Marty Stuart, Dan Seals, the Bellamy Brothers, Crystal Gayle, Barbara Mandrell, Kenny Rogers and many more. Nancy is a successful recording artist who has recorded five albums and made multiple DVDs and toured the UK four times with her own original music since 2000. Nancy’s country music song “Come Dance with Me” (with choreography by Jo Thompson) is an international hit and was named one of the most popular line dance songs in the world by multiple publications in Europe and the United States. The song was also nominated for the Crystal Boot Award in the UK.

    Nancy began her professional performing career playing the role of Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz at the Little Theatre on the Square as a teenager. Nancy worked as a singer and dancer at Six Flags over Mid-America and at Opryland USA in Nashville, Tennessee.
    After her first season at Opryland USA, Nancy was hired by Opryland to join a special elite cast that performed in Hawaii and Las Vegas and made a television show. Nancy sang demos for Nashville songwriters, wrote and recorded her own music and appeared on popular shows in Nashville including the WSM Waking Crew and the Nashville Noon Show as well as other shows on TNN during her 20s. Nancy graduated from the University of Illinois in Champaign Urbana with a degree in Advertising as a Bronze Tablet Scholar (top 3 percent) and also holds a Master’s Degree from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.

    While continuing to sing country music with her band, Nancy Hays & the Sawyer Brothers, Nancy began singing big band music in the 1990s at the Willowbrook Ballroom with the Bobby Benson Orchestra. During this same period, she also appeared in the Nashville North country music club, the Country Music Inn and at State Fairs and Festivals. During this time, Nancy began recording music specifically for dancers and developed her own ballroom and line dance series of DVDs and CDs featuring music she was performing for her live audiences. Her series “The Romance of Dance” drew national attention and her products were featured in an infomercial on Fit TV and on various shopping networks. As a sought after dance instructor and entertainer, Nancy was hired to make appearances on TV shows on ABC, the Discovery Channel, Fox, WGN, Wild Chicago and others. Her products also were reviewed favorably by The Washington Post, the LA Times, The Chicago Tribune, the Las Vegas Sun, Variety, Billboard and many other publications. On NBC Nancy taught Mario Lopez, Danny Bonaduce, and David Cassidy how to Salsa with style.
    Following media success of “The Romance of Dance”, Nancy was hired to perform her own ballroom show in Las Vegas with the full Caesar’s Palace Orchestra in the Circus Maximus Showroom. Nancy is one of the only act’s in Caesar’s history to stage her show with the audience dancing along with her at her concert in that venue.

    Nancy’s song “Come Dance with Me” became an international hit in 2004 and soon the demand for live performances increased particularly in Europe where the song was the rage with line dance fans in clubs and festivals and was being “covered” by many other artists. Nancy made tours of the UK in 2005, 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2012. She also worked an extended engagement performing her own show at the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas during National Finals Rodeo and on an international cruise.

    Since 1991, Nancy Hays has been a wife and mother and raised four children (all of whom have careers in the arts). Because Nancy’s kids share their mother’s love of music, Nancy has began incorporating them into her live performances. The family appeared multiple years at Chicago’s Summerdance Festival in Grant Park and at performing arts centers for Christmas music and at the Drake Hotel, the Hilton Orrington and at other venues.
    Nancy and three of her children; Mary, Matt and Caroline, recorded a country music Christmas song “Light in the Winter” in 2014 and made several television and live performances to promote the song to the public in 2014 and 2015.

    www.soulcircuscowboys.com - Soul Circus Cowboys are a Tampa Bay based band led by singer-songwriter Billy McKnight. These guys are as authentic as genuine leather and twice as tough. Collectively Soul Circus Cowboys have seen more road and travelled more country than the chrome bumper on a freight haulin’ eighteen wheeler. All this “livin’ has honed their talents to “craft” this incredible band that can more than deliver on record and in concert.

    See these guys perform live if you have to “sell the farm,” but be prepared, Soul Circus Cowboys are ridin’ at you hard with all four barrels and instruments blazin’…

    "We had Soul Circus Cowboys on the show this morning and I’m telling ya… they ROCKED the house!. Billy McKnight and the gang are pros yet good ol boys in the same breath."
    —Mitch English, The Daily Buzz

    "No one rocks the stage and leaves you wanting more better than the Soul Circus Cowboys!"
