One Mississippi

Cindy Holman

The other night on American Idol – Dexter came on and sang this BEAUTIFUL ballad by Brett Eldredge.  I love it when a contestant sings something unexpected.  A slow ballad after singing fast country tunes most of the season.  I loved it when Harry noted that all of the great “front men” from famous bands – can sing the slow stuff too and sing it very well.  The mark of a great singer – one who can sing any style and any speed and pull it off every time.   Something that seems easy, but is very difficult.  Dexter – you’ve got my vote.

Enjoy and God Bless

Concert Review: We Are Tonight Tour 2014

thisisherr

Having freedom and a little bit of income has done a world of good for my concert attendance record over the last couple years. Now it may be Tuesday afternoon, but my mind is still very much stuck on Saturday night in Troy, Ohio. I catch myself singing and swaying along to any song that pumped through our hearts that night.

This weekend, Billy Currington’s We Are Tonight Tour rolled through that west Ohio town, and I simply had to be there. I’ve always liked Billy, really liked opener Chase Rice, and I absolutely love Brett Eldredge.

Brett Eldredge Gets Piggy With It

New Country 105.1 FM - KNCI-FM Sacramento

Sometimes, if something seems impossible, people will say “it’ll happen when pigs fly.”  Early in his career, Brett Eldredge may have thought that a time or two about a successful music career as he performed before not-even-handfuls of people in the same Vegas casino where he was now set to perform as part of the Academy of Country Music Awards. Brett sat down with KNCI’s Tom Mailey of the Pat and Tom show during ACM week in Vegas, fresh from rehearsal in the arena at Mandalay Bay, and he marveled at how far he’s come.

“I played the cocktail lounge there like four or five years ago when I first started.” How many people were paying attention then? “Five. Maybe two. Sometimes zero.” But Brett hung in there, honing his skills as a singer, songwriter and performer and it paid off, with hits this past year like “Don’t Ya” and…

Jana Kramer and Brett Eldredge in New Campaign for Macy’s

KMLE Country @ 1079

Beginning in May, Jana Kramer and Brett Eldredge will be the stars of a new ad campaign in Macy’s.

The Country stars will appear in the “American Icons” campaign, a partnership with Macy’s and a veteran’s support initiative “Got Your 6,” which means “Got Your Back.” The ads will run starting on May 6 and will also feature Ryan Lochte, an Olympic gold medalist.

Kramer said in a story in People, “To me, an American icon is someone who follows their dreams, is a role model and never gives up and is someone you look up to.”

Starting on May 17, when shoppers donate to the “Got Your 6” endeavor, they will receive a savings pass to Macy’s. How cool is that? 100 percent of the money donated will go straight to vets coming home and military families.
