Kenny Rogers Raises $60,000 For Dolly's Imagination Library


PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (September 30, 2015) – Dolly Parton’s long time friend and duet partner Kenny Rogers returned to Dollywood this past weekend to help raise money and awareness for her Imagination Library, a book gifting program for kids from birth to age five. Just days after announcing his retirement on the TODAY show, Kenny sang to a sold-out crowd, giving everyone a night to remember at Dollywood’s D.P. Celebrity Theatre. Fans from around the world made their way to Pigeon Forge for a chance to see “The Gambler” performing songs from his treasure chest of mega hits in an intimate setting.
 
"You know she's an amazing person. She can take something and really grow it into something fantastic. Dolly has shipped over 70 million books! I think it’s a great idea," said Kenny Rogers. "I’m glad to be a part of this and I hope it helps!"
 
The autumn air of the Smokies was filled with the sweet sounds of Kenny’s hit songs throughout the park. From “Coward Of The County,” “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love To Town,” and “The Gambler,” to “Islands In The Stream,” “Lady,” and “You Can’t Make Old Friends,” the crowd again and again erupted in thunderous applause.
 
When it was time to count the money, Kenny’s performance raised over $60,000 for Dolly’s Imagination Library bringing the total raised during the benefit concert series to more than $635,000.
 
"I'm so grateful to Kenny for wanting to help my Imagination Library," said Dolly Parton. "He's always been such a great friend to me and I’m so happy that he made time to come to Dollywood and I know the fans just loved it. Kenny, if you’re reading this, I want to you to know just how much I appreciate you and you know I’ll always love you!”

Bonnie Brown Diagnosed With Lung Cancer



From the Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Country singer Bonnie Brown of the sibling group The Browns, who are to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame later this year, says she has lung cancer.

Brown, 78, said in a statement Monday provided to The Associated Press that she has been diagnosed with stage four adenocarcinoma right lung cancer. Her brother, Jim Ed Brown, died from cancer in June before the siblings could be inducted into the Hall of Fame in October.

The Browns, which included Jim Ed, Bonnie and Maxine Brown, had a huge crossover hit with their version of "The Three Bells" in 1959, as well as top country songs like "I Take the Chance" and "I Heard the Bluebirds Sing."

Bonnie Brown said she's being treated in Little Rock, Arkansas, and is "determined to live many more years."

Charlie Daniels Dedicates New Song For Wranglers Rodeo


LAS VEGAS, NV (September 28, 2015) – Iconic artist Charlie Daniels has produced a new song that uniquely captures the road that the cowboys endure to qualify for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas to seek the coveted Gold Buckle and title of world champion. Entitled “It Don’t Get No Better Than That,” the song is the ultimate tribute to the cowboys and Las Vegas, the city that has hosted the world’s richest and most prestigious rodeo since 1985.
 
The song will be available on iTunes beginning Monday, October 12. Proceeds from the song will be donated to the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund and other organizations. During the Wrangler NFR, which takes place Dec. 3 – 12 in Las Vegas, fans can download the song for free atwww.NFRSocialArena.com.
 
With kicking lyrics and riffs by Charlie Daniels and his band, the song emanates with the sight and sounds of rodeo. Specific lyrics include:To be one of the Cowboys headed to Nevada to try for the December Gold/Where the lights shine bright in the clear desert night and the people come to rock and roll/Where the best of the best are put to the test and the rest might as well stay home. The chorus continues with Got to make it out to Vegas to the NFR where eight seconds in the saddle can make you a star/Where the neon glitters and the party don't ever end.
 
"Being such a big rodeo fan, writing a song about cowboys and cowgirls, broncs and bulls and the excitement that surrounds the Wrangler NFR in Vegas every year was a natural for me,” said Charlie Daniels.  “It don't get no better than that."
 
The collaboration with the Wrangler NFR began long ago with Daniels’ interest in the sport and the cowboys who endure long trips, muddy arenas and battered bodies to pursue the dream of competing in Las Vegas.
 
“Charlie is a Wrangler National Finals Rodeo icon,” said Pat Christenson, president of Las Vegas Events. “We are proud and excited that he has penned and sung a song that tributes the experience of the Wrangler NFR and the road to get to Las Vegas.”
 
Entering his sixth decade producing music, Daniels has left an indelible mark on America’s musical landscape. From his Dove Award winning gospel albums to his genre-defining Southern rock anthems and his CMA Award-winning country hits, he has parlayed his passion for music into a multi-platinum career and a platform to support the military, underprivileged children and others in need.
 
Daniels recorded his self-titled solo album in 1970 for Capitol Records. Two years later he formed the Charlie Daniels Band and the group scored its first hit with the top ten “Uneasy Rider.” Since then the CDB has populated radio with such memorable hits as “Long Haired Country Boy,” “The South’s Gonna Do It Again,” “In America,” “The Legend of Wooley Swamp” and of course, his signature song, “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” which won a Grammy for Best Country Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group in 1979 as well as single of the year at the Country Music Association Awards.
 
The CDB will perform more than 100 concert dates this year including performances on the Grand Ole Opry. The band's latest release, "Off the Grid - Doin' It Dylan," features 10 Bob Dylan songs by the CDB, and is their first CDB studio release since 2007.
 
Set for release on Oct. 16, Charlie Daniels brings his career spanning over 50 years full circle and is set to release Live At Billy Bob's Texas CD and DVD. The 14-track project joins The Charlie Daniels Band with the likes of legendary country artists like Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Gary Stewart, David Allan Coe, Pat Green, Randy Rogers Band, Stoney LaRue, Charlie Robison and many others as a member of the Live at Billy Bob's Texas family.
 
Sold out for 290 consecutive performances at the Thomas & Mack Center, the Wrangler NFR attracts the top 15 contestants in bareback riding, steer wrestling, team roping, saddle bronc riding, tie-down roping, barrel racing, and bull riding. Under the new contract with the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association that runs through 2024, the purse in 2015 will jump to $10 million. Qualification is based on the 2015 PRCA World Standings.

Jeannie Seely Celebrates 48 Years On The Opry



NASHVILLE, Tenn. (September 25, 2015) – As Jeannie Seely arrived at the Grand Ole Opry this weekend she made her way to her regular dressing room, number 16, the Minnie Pearl room. She changed from her street clothes and comfortable shoes to her sparkly stage clothes and not quite so comfortable high-heeled boots. She touched up her make-up and made sure her hair was just right. She warmed up with the musicians to decide which songs she would perform that night. Seasonal allergies and too much yard work meant that one of the songs she wanted to do was just out of range for her fatigued vocal chords. But she was relieved to know that she would be able to perform the song that was on her mind most of all. While Jeannie considers it a privilege and an honor to perform any night at the Grand Ole Opry, this night was even more special and she wanted to perform a song that is very special to her.“Don’t Touch Me” was her first number one song, and even won her a Grammyaward in March 1967 for Best Female Country Vocal Performance. More important than that, however, “Don’t Touch Me” brought Jeannie to the attention of the country music industry and was a catalyst toward her achieving her lifelong dream of becoming a member of the Grand Ole Opry. In September 1967 that dream became a reality. And this night, on the48 year anniversary, Jeannie can hardly believe that dream has continued all this time.
 
“The Grand Ole Opry has been a part of my life since I first heard it at four years old,” said Jeannie. “For many years it seemed like an impossible dream to even attend it, let alone be on it. After I started seriously pursuing my career, I made it my goal to, someday, somehow, become a member of the Opry! Although I was of course thrilled with a hit record, once “Don’t Touch Me” topped the charts, I started lobbying to be invited as a guest with membership in the back of my mind. Nothing in my career means more than being a part of that wonderful ‘family’. To me, next to the Hall of Fame, your name on that membership wall signifies, more than anything else, your place in Country Music History. Celebrating my 48th Anniversary reminds me how fast time flies when you are having a wonderful time! I feel my role now is to carry on the tradition as best I can with a helpful eye on the new talent I’m privileged to introduce who will carry this marvelous American treasure into the future for many more generations to enjoy.”

Jeannie took the stage to the roar of an enthusiastic audience. Not only did she give her distinctive moving performance on her songs, but she was fervent in her duties as segment host and gave generous, welcoming introductions to the guest artists in her segment. With her usual infectious personality, she shared a couple of fun personal stories to the delight of the audience. As she was about to close out the segment and sing her career-changing song, “Don’t Touch Me,” she shared with the audience that she was celebrating her 48 year anniversary. She was nearly moved to tears as she told the audience how grateful she is for her long successful career and for the dreams that she has achieved in her life.
 
“Actually I am amazed that my career is still going after all this time,“ said Jeannie. “Every year I have thought it would probably be the last time I would be asked to do...whatever! I never take for granted how fortunate I’ve been to see my dreams come true, and to make a living doing what I love most of all. There’s simply no way I can express my gratitude for the acceptance I continue to receive from the industry, my peers, and country music fans.”

As much as Jeannie loves the Opry and being a member, the Opry folks love her just as much. “I can’t imagine a picture of the Grand Ole Opry family without Jeannie Seely in it,” said Opry Vice President and General Manager Pete Fisher. “She has shared her time and talents with the Opry through each stage of her career, and we’re thankful. I admire her work ethic and gift for entertaining, and I appreciate how important it is to her to welcome new artists to the Opry stage and to foster in them the same love for the Opry that she’s had all these years. On top of all that, she’s a heck of a lot of fun for all of us to hang with backstage. I have been made aware by anonymous sources that she is already planning her 50th Opry Anniversary party. I am not surprised.”
 
After Jeannie finished the last notes of her closing song and accepted the long enthusiastic applause from the adoring crowd, she stepped back and let the big red Opry curtain drape to the floor in front of her. She thanked the musicians and back-up singers for another great set. She made her way to the side of the stage to chat with artists and admirers who were waiting in the wings. Eventually she started working her way back toward her number 16 dressing room which is quite a long process considering how many friends she runs into along the way. After all the many hugs and well wishes are done she finally makes it to her dressing room and changes back into her street clothes and comfortable shoes. Her last stop before she heads out the back door is by the security desk where she wishes the familiar guards goodnight and they answer with, “have a good night Jeannie, see you next week.”
 
Jeannie Seely is in the sixth decade of her entertainment career that began when she was 11 years old singing on a WMGW morning radio show. She has had success as an actress, author, songwriter, and singer, but mostly she is known as being an amazing entertainer. She was first to wear a mini-skirt on the Grand Ole Opry stage and has always been known as an individualist. She’s been credited with changing the image of female country performers, and her infectious humor has always been one of her trademarks. When not out touring she can be found hosting and performing at the Opry on any given weekend that she is in town.
 
Jeannie Seely is represented by Carrie Moore-Reed at Third Coast Talent. For booking please emailcarrie@thirdcoasttalent.comor call 615-685-3331.

The hard-core traditional stylist will soon entertain loyal country fans in 10 cities on the Campbell’s Soup Country Concert Tour.
