COUNTRY ARTIST LORRIE MORGAN GUEST HOSTS THIS WEEKEND ON ANIMAL RADIO®
LOS ANGELES, Calif.

Lorrie Morgan is not only a powerhouse country performer, but she’s also a “hands-on” supporter of her local animal rescue foundation, New Leash on Life. Lorrie has performed several benefit concerts to help fund the non-profit animal welfare organization.
Lorrie also has a house full of fur including Weezy and Puddin’, her pit bulls, and Abbey and Ray, her Great Pyrenees, as well as a pond of not-so-furry koi fish. And like most pet lovers, she tolerates the dogs jockeying for position in bed every night.
“Pit bulls are misunderstood,” says Morgan. “I’ll often get on Facebook and see videos of animals being mistreated. I want to know who’s filming the videos, as I’d like to smack them in the head!”
“Lorrie doesn’t just talk the talk. She walks the walk when it comes to protecting our companion animals,” says Animal Radio® host Hal Abrams.
Catch this special nationwide broadcast Saturday and Sunday March 19 and 20 on any of the Animal Radio® program’s 132 AM/FM affiliate stations on the USA Radio Network, including flagship KOST 103.5 Los Angeles or eight digital properties including the Animal Radio® Smartphone App for iPhone/Android and iHeartRadio.

COUNTRY LEGEND JOHN ANDERSON TO RELEASE NEW SINGLE PENNED BY MERLE
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 15, 2016) – Country chart-topper John Anderson's new single "Magic Mama," penned by Merle Haggard just for Anderson, is now impacting radio. The feel-good anthem is the latest single from Anderson’s critically acclaimed album,Goldmine, which was listed as one of Rolling Stone’s “40 Best Country Albums of 2015.”
When speaking about the song, Haggard said, “It was recorded in an excellent way. Just the way I pictured it.”
“A couple of years ago I got a call from Merle saying that he had written a song with me in mind. I saw him about six months later and asked if he finished it,” Anderson said. “He pulled out a little piece of paper from his back pocket that had the lyrics on it, and he got a guitar and played it for me. That’s probably one of the greatest moments of my career, sitting there listening to Merle play that song that he had written for me.” He adds, “I was so pleased and I’m so thrilled to have a brand new Merle Haggard song on the latest cd. ‘Magic Mama,’ for me, will always be a treasure.”
The song showcases Anderson’s distinct vocals, which has made him one of the most sought-after artists in country music. Fans can catch Anderson on tour (see tour dates below), where he will be performing “Magic Mama.” The country hit-maker will also be playing other tracks off of theGoldmine album, along with his signature hits like “Swingin’” and “Seminole Wind.”

The latest album, which hits the highest and lowest of emotions, is available now on iTunes,Amazon and kellylang.net.

Grammy award winning singer Lee Greenwood teams with Lang on the ballad, “It Turns Me Inside Out".

ABOUT THE BELLAMY BROTHERS:
Howard and David continue to prove that the trail they’ve ridden to fame has been as unique as their music itself—music that is now celebrating 40 years of success. The road that started on the pop music charts in the ‘70’s, took a winding turn into country music in the ‘80’s, paving the way for duos to come, such as Brooks & Dunn, Montgomery Gentry, Big & Rich, and The Judds. “If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me),” originally scrawled on a dinner napkin by David, rocketed them to the top of the country charts the way “Let Your Love Flow,” had done in the pop market just a few years earlier. It proved to be the first of a string of fourteen No. 1 singles in the U.S. alone. They’re the only U.S. country music act who've toured in India, Sri Lanka, New Caledonia and Qatar. The Bellamy Brothers hold the record in both the Academy of Country Music (ACM) and the Country Music Association Awards (CMA) for the most duo nominations. Numerous Grammy nods have also been directed toward the brothers. For more information, visitbellamybrothers.com.

Dolly Parton's Largest North American Tour in 25 Years
Dolly Parton is set to bring her boundless energy to stages in over 60 cities as she embarks on her first major U.S. and Canadian tour in more than 25 years. For the last 20 years, Parton has only played select dates in the U.S., but her 2016 tour will cover cities across North America. As one of the hottest concert tickets of the summer, Parton’s legion of fans are destined to sell out the shows quickly. Parton’s set-list will include hit songs all while weaving in a few new songs from her double-disc album Pure & Simple with Dolly's Biggest Hits. She will also be playing songs that have not been heard live for decades.
“We’re so excited to get out there and see the fans again. I’m really looking forward to singing songs the fans have not heard in a while, as well as the hits, while debuting a few new ones off Pure & Simple,” Parton said.
Pure & Simple with Dolly's Biggest Hits 2-CD set will include all new material as well as a compilation of Parton’s biggest hits. A track listing for Pure & Simple will be announced soon.
The Country Music Hall of Famer is on one of the biggest hot streaks of her career after her hugely successful TV movie, “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors,” attracted a network record of 15.8+ million viewers and was the most watched movie on network TV in more than 3 years. “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors,” will be released on DVD May 3.
Stay tuned for tour date announcements and album details.

NITTY GRITTY DIRT BAND PACKS 50 YEARS OF HITS INTO STAR-STUDDED PBS
SPECIAL AIRING THROUGHOUT MARCH PBS Pledge Special Airs March 2016,
Check Local Listings
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 3, 2016) – The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band (Jeff Hanna, Jimmie Fadden, Bob Carpenter and John McEuen) will host a star-studded televised PBS special throughout March that was filmed at the historic Ryman Auditorium during a sold-out performance as the iconic group celebrates its 50th anniversary. Go to their website to find dates and times for when the PBS Pledge Special airs in your hometown.
The special also features guest artists, including John Prine, Sam Bush, Vince Gill, Jerry Jeff Walker, Alison Krauss, Rodney Crowell, Byron House, and Jerry Douglas as well as former members, Jimmy Ibbotson (long-time member for decades) and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and early NGDB member Jackson Browne.
“We are so humbled and honored to share the stage with these legendary artists who we’re grateful to call friends. And now our fans will have an opportunity to enjoy this historic show thanks to PBS and the Tennessee Department of Tourism,” Jeff Hanna said.
The special is made possible with support from the Tennessee Department of Tourism. “I’ve been a fan of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band for most of my life,” said Commissioner Kevin Triplett, Tennessee Department of Tourist Development.
“The influence of the band goes far beyond the enjoyment of listening to its music. There are pivotal projects in the history of music that are capable of changing a direction of a genre and raise awareness of an entire generation. It is not an overstatement to say the “Will The Circle Be Unbroken” album is one of those projects. Having the band launch their 50th anniversary celebration from the Mother Church of Country Music – The Ryman is more than appropriate, it is ordained. We’re fortunate to have them as part of ‘The Soundtrack of America, Made in Tennessee,’” Commissioner Triplett added.
There will be an accompanying CD and DVD that include extra songs and performances as well as concert tickets and meet and greets in select markets available exclusively through PBS member stations.
The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band continue non-stop touring in celebration of their Golden 50th anniversary planned to run through the end of 2017, with many additional dates to be announced. Plans are to be extensive with select shows featuring special guests in select markets as well as many new exciting show elements. This will be a tour not to be missed.
