Shania Twain Announces First New Album in 15 Years

Shania Twain Announces New Single “Life’s About to Get Good”and New Album

Shania revealed new music news when making an appearance on NBC’s The Voice

Shania Twain revealed new music news when making an appearance last night on NBC’s The Voice. While Shania served as a first-time-ever fifth judge on the hit show and a key advisor to the contestants, fans learned Shania’s “Life’s About to Get Good” is scheduled to hit country airwaves this June and her first album in 15 years is due out this September.

When writing “Life’s About to Get Good,” Shania explains, “I was at home looking out at the ocean and I said to myself, ‘Here I am stuck in this past of negativity, but it’s so beautiful out. I’m not in the mood to write a ‘feeling-sorry-for-myself’ song.”

The songwriter recognized that with all of the negative in life also comes the positive. “You can’t have the good without the bad. And that’s what the song ended up being about.”

Shania, who recently appeared as a guest on CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden, plans to debut her new single during her headlining set at this Saturday night in Indio, Calif. at Stagecoach Festival, one of the nation’s most prominent country music festivals.

Jim Rose Reports ON Bill O’Reilly After Fox

Jim Rose Reports On Bill O’Reilly

After Fox News Fires Bill O’Reilly From His Prime Time Post

FOX TV CAVES TO AGITATORS In 1966, recording artist Napoleon XIV’s single They’re Coming to Take Me Away! is apropos for FOX TV’s latest betrayal to remove its biggest star #1 rated Talk host Bill O’Reilly with a payout worth $25 million. New York Times sets in motion a campaign by left wing Media Matters which pressures O’Reilly advertisers to exit his show. Shortly after Fox News fires 67-year-old Bill O’Reilly, President Donald Trump offers him a post to move on up in his administration.

O’REILLY IS STILL A FACTOR After Fox News fires 67-year-old Bill O’Reilly from his prime time post, he is still a Factor because President Donald Trump offers him a post as Media Advisor. President Trump who knows that O’Reilly’s media savvy is first-rate, places him in position to work closely with Press Secretary Sean Spicer and Information and Propaganda Director Jeff Derpinger to help to improve voters’ perception of the Trump administration.

O’REILLY’S NEXT STOP After such a massive shakeup, where does someone of Bill O’Reilly’s magnitude land back on his feet? Because of his high voltage exposure, all of the alphabet networks are out of the picture. When O’Reilly’s non-compete clause runs out about six months from now, O’Reilly is free as a bird to land in any nest. JRRR predicts a possibility of Conservative media company Newsmax with its TV network (on cable and online), website, magazine and newsletter. Newsmax can use Bill O’Reilly’s superstar power.

Today’s Inspiration Station With Rhonnie Scheuerman

RhonsInspirationDaily2015aToday’s Inspiration Station With Rhonnie Scheuerman

Author ……Dianne Neal Matthews

A Friend told me about a day she got so wrapped up in her current project that she missed lunch and started dinner late

The more she wrote, the more ideas came to her.  By the time she took a break she noticed the street lights coming on and heard her stomach growling. I know the feeling of getting lost  in a good movie, an interesting conversation , or a challenging craft project.  I’m also too familiar with being so absorbed in a well- written novel I’m  oblivious to everything else, especially the number on my bedside clock.

These things are good in and out of themselves, but what I need too experience more often is getting lost in Jesus.  Meditating on His love and mercy.  Seeking to know Him on a deeper level.  Focusing on how I can learn more closely in His steps.

Jesus calls on us every single day to live for Him, making decisions that help us replace a self centered life with a sacrificial one.  As we get lost in Him, we’ll discover a new richness in our relationship, new opportunities for ministry, and renewed meaning and purpose in our lives…worth exceedingly great value.

Faith Step:

Today try to find a quiet moment to lose yourself in Jesus

so much that everything around you fades away

and His presence fills you to the brim with love, joy, and peace.

Jon Pardi: The 2017 Cover Story on WHISNews21

Jon Pardi: The Cover Story

Talks about breakout year with California Sunrise & having support from die-hard fans

Jon Pardi’s star power continues to rise after a year of back-to-back No. 1 singles and a big win at the ACM Awards where he took home the trophy for Best New Male Vocalist. At his home in Dixon, Calif., though, he was always the star.

An adorable 1991 clip of a young Pardi posted to YouTube shows the singer performing Alan Jackson’s “Don’t Rock the Jukebox” with a toy rifle in hand that he strums like a guitar and a makeshift microphone stand where he belts the lyrics. A hint of what was to come 26 years later, a now 31-year-old Pardi is witnessing his lifelong dream come to fruition with the success of “Head Over Boots” and “Dirt On My Boots” from his sophomore album California Sunrise and his first-ever ACM Awards win in early April. It is fair to say that 2017 is unequivocally Pardi’s breakthrough year.

“It’s definitely like opening another chapter to where I’m going and what I’m doing and it’s exciting,” Pardi tells Sounds Like Nashville over the phone recently from a tour stop in Canada. “I’ve been at the ACMs a lot so it was really awesome to go in there and win an award. It meant a lot to me. I was really sincere in my acceptance speech. The ACMs are great and there was the rush of playing on the awards show.”

The singer is currently on the road with Dierks Bentley and Cole Swindell as part of the What the Hell Tour and feels a different rush every night when he sees the seats filled as he takes the stage as the first opener each evening.

“There’s definitely a fan base out there that listens to all the music. California Sunrise is opening a new chapter to bigger things I would say. We’ve got a lot of great tours coming up next year that I can’t even talk about. You know how we’ve got to keep secrets,” he says with a laugh.

While he may be staying mum about what’s in store for the future, he is much more open about his past. Pardi moved to Nashville on February 23, 2008, a date forever etched in his memory. He nostalgically recalls dreaming of relocating to Music City since he was 18, but he says he had to grow up a bit first. He had a band in Chico, Calif., but the guys were graduating college and moving on to other jobs. After his drummer quit the band, Pardi knew he wanted to continue as a singer and songwriter even if he had to do it on his own. He saved money from working construction jobs, adamant that he had to at least try to chase a music career in Nashville.

After talking to several people in Nashville and learning more about Music Row and the songwriting community, he finally decided to made the leap from Northern California to Tennessee and hasn’t looked back since. While life as a musician is often a struggle, Pardi said it was songwriting that kept him going.

“Before Nashville, I was always writing melodies and songs. It’s like a piece of me that I kept recharged,” he admits.

ESPN CLEARS ITS LITTER Over the past five years, ESPN network loses 12 million subscribers. In November 2016 alone, ESPN loses 600,000. In October 2015, ESPN slashes 300 jobs, or about 5% of its staff. Just in time for Disney’s second-quarter earnings tally, ESPN apparently wants to shake things up a bit. In March 2017, Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch reports: ESPN has been tasked with paring tens of millions ($) of staff salary from its payroll, including staffers many viewers and readers will recognize.

EMAILS YES WE HAVE EMAIL

CC MCCARTNEY [ex KILT-610, KRBE FM, Voice Imaging] (Nashville, TN) It was early in 1974, I was doing early nights at KIMN (950), Denver and we had one of those all glassed incased control rooms. I had a request to play Stairway to Heaven and I was about ready for a nice 6 minute break, when this loud roaring sound started to cover the sounds of my monitors. Just as I looked up, I saw an old Dodge literally in my lobby. This guy ran his car up the outside stairs and thru the plate glass windows and from my control room I was maybe 5 feet from his smoking machine. I jumped up to see if he was alright and he said “ yes **** it, I was trying to kill myself”. After a short pause I told him when John McGuiness, The GM hears about this, he may still get his wish! True story. CC McCartney

CHUCK DUNAWAY [WABC-770, KLIF-1190, KBOX-1480 & KILT-610] (Houston-Katy, TX) Jim; Not to make you envious but…I danced with Ann Margaret in the WKY (930) studios once. Ronnie Kaye was interviewing her and I had just finished taping a kiddie TV show I was doing with Foreman Scotty…i was still in my overalls costume when I walked into the control room and there she was. I was a brassy jerk and grabbed her and (being a good sport) we swayed around the control room a bit. I remember how tiny she was. She was in town with Pat Boone doing a movie about car racing…the movie was set in Dallas, but we had a more photographic race track according to the movie guys. Ronnie loves to tell the story…me too. Chuck (www.chuckdunawaydj.com/)

JIM SHANNON [KULF-790, WIL-1430] (Ellisville-St. Louis, MO) Subject: KOB TV. Read with interest your note on KOB-TV Albuquerque being the first TV station between the Mississippi River and the West Coast. Folks here in St. Louis are proud that KSD-TV went on the air on Feb. 8, 1947, which pre-dates KOB (April 5, 1948) by more than a year. I may be splitting hairs here, but St. Louis in on the western side of the banks of the Mississippi. Did I get you on this one? Jim Shannon

T.J. CALLAHAN [ex KILT FM 1987-2008/Metro Traffic 1985-87/WTAW-KTAW 1982-85] (Houston-Sugar Land, TX) Subject: Birthday wishes. Hi Jim, Thanks for the birthday wishes. You are so sweet to always remember me. Keep up the good work. Love Jim Rose Remembers Radio! Teej

TRIVIA ANSWER: On April 20, 1961 the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approves the GE and Zenith systems of FM stereo broadcasting.

CHARLES GEORGE [ex KCHU FM-KC5RAI] (Dallas, TX) Subject: Future Radio. I don’t think Digital will kill FM. One reason is even in Dallas there, are places Digital Signals do not as well as either FM or AM. Also with Digital persons have, to subscribe, whereas, my radios can be turned on. If anything Kills radio it will be too many stations not developing new Talent, so as to keep it Fresh and not become a bore. Like some persons still blame those no longer around. Like a Patriarch, Gerhard Schuttger, from my church I grew up in passed away. I had mixed feelings, since we often disagreed but I knew he cared a lot for others. I often am more convinced by the actions of others over what they tell me. I am not much on trying to convert those, especially those converted and older than me. I am more of the type that likes stations with: More Music And Less Talk. Though I know it was fun hearing a DJ could talk up to the vocals on the start of a song where there was an instrumental. I think those who have made a career in Broadcasting often think differently than those that have not. I maybe wrong about the future of radio, but not getting rid of the ones I own. Though may not worth anything in the future. Anyway here are some photos of what I like listening to. 73, KC5RAI, Charles George

Devotional: Seeing Your Work as the Will of God

As long as it is day we must do the work of him who sent me Night is coming when no one can work John 9:4

jesus036

You’ll experience a new level of fulfilment when you begin to see what you do for a living as an important part of God’s will for your life. Jesus preached and healed, but He saw it all as ‘work’ given to Him by His Father. You must too. Instead of seeing church as a place where you meet with God on Sunday morning, see it as a place where you’re fed and strengthened so that you can carry the presence of God with you into the workplace. ‘Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him’ (Colossians 3:17). Notice two words here: 1) ‘Word.’ That covers skills of communication and information. 2) ‘Deed.’ That covers skills such as creativity and building. Whatever you do, you’re supposed to do it with a thankful heart, as though the Lord were your boss – because He is. When you work with that attitude, you come alive. One person comes alive when they pick up a musical instrument, another when they lead a team, another when they counsel someone who’s hurting, and another when they’re looking at a financial spreadsheet. When each of us is doing what God designed and called us to do, the world around us is enriched. All skill is God-given, and we’re invited to live in conscious interaction with the Holy Spirit as we work, so that we can develop the skills He gives us. Work is a form of love. We cannot be fully human without creating value.

Prayer Heavenly Father,

help me see that the work that I do is all part of the plan You have for me right now.

Thank You! In Jesus’ Name, Amen

Clint Black Announces New Tour Dates

Clint Black Announces New Tour Dates

Country music icon Clint Black will hit the road again, an extension of his “On Purpose” tour, on August 13th in New Jersey. The tour will feature music from an historic career that has produced 22 #1 singles and made him one of the most successful singer/songwriters of the modern era, as well as songs from Black’s recently released album On Purpose.  Tickets go on sale as of April 28th

Performing live in concert is the most rewarding part of my career,” said Black.  “It’s a chance every night, to connect with people through music and laughter in an exchange with the audience that goes beyond just playing music. For all of the travel and time away from our families, it’s that connection with the audience that makes it all worthwhile.

It is one of the most storied careers in modern music. Clint Black surged to superstardom as part of the fabled Class of ’89, reaching #1 with five consecutive singles from his triple-platinum debut, Killin’ Time. He followed that with the triple-platinum Put Yourself in My Shoes, and then a string of platinum and gold albums throughout the ’90s. Perhaps most impressively, Clint wrote or co-wrote every one of his more than three dozen chart hits, including “A Better Man,” “Where Are You Now,” “When My Ship Comes In,” “A Good Run of Bad Luck,” “Summer’s Comin’,” “Like the Rain” and “Nothin’ But the Taillights.”

Along the way, Clint has sold over 20 million records, earned more than a dozen gold and platinum awards in the U.S. and Canada, landed nearly two dozen major awards and nominations, including more than a dozen GRAMMY nominations, and earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

What God Expects From You !

But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows.

From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded & from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. Luke 12:48

Added blessing always brings added responsibility, so: 1) Stop complaining. Happiness doesn’t come from getting what you want; it comes from recognizing and enjoying what you have. So keep a positive attitude and be grateful every day. Rudyard Kipling said, ‘Don’t pay too much attention to fame, power, or money. Someday you’ll meet a person who cares for none of these, and then you’ll know how poor you are’. 2) Stop assuming. When you see your neighbors buying new furniture, taking expensive holidays, and driving the latest car, does something stir inside you to do the same? Be careful; just because someone appears to be in similar circumstances to yours doesn’t mean anything. They might earn twice as much. On the other hand, they may be in debt up to their ears or three-quarters of the way to bankruptcy or a divorce court. Stop making assumptions and trying to be like somebody else. 3) Stop withholding. Bruce Larson said, ‘Money is another pair of hands to heal, feed, and bless the desperate families of the earth. In other words, money is my other self’. But that’s only true if you’re willing to part with it. Money is like manure: If you let it pile up it stinks; if you spread it around it helps things grow. Money gives you options the less fortunate can only pray for. And one more very important thought: How you see your money – that it is all God’s -and how you use His resources that He entrusted you with- will be asked on the Judgement Day. “I was hungry, did you feed me …… Matthew 25:34-46

Prayer Heavenly Father,

help me be faithful with what You have entrusted me with to do Your will.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen
