Luke Bryan releases Born Here, Live Here, Die Here

Luke Bryan releases Born Here, Live Here, Die Here

Luke Bryan revealed details of his seventh studio album, setting April 24 for the release

Produced by longtime collaborators Jeff and Jody Stevens, the new set features 10 tracks including Bryan’s last chart topper, “Knockin’ Boots,” and his current Top 10 single, the steamy “What She Wants Tonight.”

Meanwhile, the superstar has also released the album’s reflective title track, a country-pride anthem written by Jake Mitchell, Jameson Rodgers and Josh Thompson which Bryan describes as the catalyst for the whole album. With a patient rhythm, organic sound built on acoustic and steel guitars and lyrics about why he’ll never leave the land he calls home, the track feels in some ways like a grown-up sequel to early-career favorites like “We Rode in Trucks,” with Bryan finding beauty in the consistency of rural life.

“Born here, live here, die here / From the roots, to the boots, to the lay me down suit / Yeah, I’m gonna be proud to be right here / Just like my daddy and his daddy did, too / Ride the same roads, work the same dirt / Go to the same church and drink the same beer / Born here, live here, die here,” goes the chorus.

“The second I heard the song ‘Born Here, Live Here, Die Here’ it related to me, how I grew up, how I have so many roots and so many ties to my hometown,” Bryan says. “Being tied to your hometown is very important in country music. I fell in love with the song right away and now we have an album and a tour derived from this song. It’s pretty amazing. I’m proud of this new music and I’m really excited to get it out!”

Bryan will return to ABC’s American Idol with Katy Perry and Lionel Richie this Sunday (February 16) at 8 p.m. ET. His Proud to Be Right Here Tour kicks off May 28 in Cincinnati, Ohio, with Morgan Wallen and Caylee Hammack.

Rhon Inspiration Station: Inspiration For The Weekend

inspirationstationNov2013It’s Friday and If You Have Come To The Station for Inspiration

We hope you will leave here Inspired for the Weekend

In this world of increasing electronic surveillance, privacy can be hard to come by. Safe places are also in short supply. So when you feel surrounded by trouble, remember this: I am your Hiding Place. Call out to Me, and I will protect you from trouble. I will even surround you with songs of deliverance. When you praise Me in the midst of a hard day, both you and I are blessed. I come near, and I hide you in the secret place of My Presence.

Rescue me from my enemies, O Lord, for I hide myself in you. -Psalm 143:9

“You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. -Psalm 32:7”

You are holy, O You Who dwell in [the holy place where] the praises of Israel [are offered]. -Psalm 22:3 amp

“You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence from the plots of man; You shall keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues. -Psalm 31:20 nkjv”

One of the best ways to draw upon My strength is to sing praises to Me. I actually dwell in the praises of My people. So when problems are weighing heavily upon you, break free by worshiping Me-in songs, in shouts, even in whispers. These sacred acclamations decimate the darkness and invite Me into your awareness, brightening the atmosphere around you. Problems fade into the background while you are engaged in worshiping Me.

Awareness of My Presence strengthens you and fills you with Joy

Is Mo Pitney One Of 2020’s Traditional Country Stars?

Is Mo Pitney one of 2020’s Traditional Country Stars

Getting To Know Country Singer Mo Pitney On AirplayExpress

When Mo Pitney sings “let me tell you about country” in his debut single, he’s doing more than telling. He’s showing. Appropriately titled, the song “Country” is as much positioning statement as introduction. In three minutes and 16 seconds, it is almost precisely who he is in word and deed. The vocal delivery, storytelling, musicianship and reflections of his outdoor lifestyle – as well as faith, family and patriotism – offer a spot-on portrayal. Joined by early fan favorites “Clean Up On Aisle Five” and “Come Do A Little Life,” the song carves an unmistakably country yet completely fresh groove for the genre. In short, it sounds like nothing else, but absolutely belongs.

To paraphrase the song, a life in music isn’t a place on a map; it’s a place in Mo Pitney’s heart. “I just love music,” Pitney says, exhibiting atypical maturity for someone still in their early twenties. “It has never been about praise. Playing the Grand Ole Opry was an amazing experience, but I have just as much fun sitting on my bed playing along to an old record. It’s always been that way.”

That music-centered outlook is already generating the unsought acclaim of which he speaks. Perhaps the best example is the aforementioned Opry performance. “Everybody asked me if I was nervous, but I don’t think I was,” he says. “I definitely thought about it a lot more than I normally do. My respect for that stage and the circle is great.

For his first song, he selected “Clean Up On Aisle Five” and eyed one goal: to sing his heart out. “I didn’t feel like anybody was sucked into the song at all, but when it was over I stepped back from the microphone and people erupted,” he says. A standing ovation approaching a full minute ensued. “After about 30 seconds, I stepped forward to say something because I thought I heard them dying down, but they just got louder. I lost it. It took me about a week to come off that feeling.”

That pivotal moment capped a journey that started in the red brick town of Cherry Valley, IL, where Mo grew up loving the outdoors. “Right out my back door was a lake about a mile away,” he says. “I’d ride my bike there with a fishing pole on each handlebar, like two tridents sticking out in front of me.”

Music was a family affair, and Pitney picked up the drums at six and guitar at 12. “I learned how to play with a cast on my arm by laying a rag over my dad’s guitar so it wouldn’t get scratched,” he says. “Johnny Cash At San Quentin was my introduction to playing music. I learned the whole album.”

Two weeks later, he played two Cash songs at an open mic night – his first public performance. “After I played, I saw a guy backstage playing a banjo, so I picked that up for a couple of years. By age 15, I grabbed the guitar again playing lead acoustic, my brother played bass and we had a friend who played mandolin.” His affection for bluegrass led him to Keith Whitley. “When I heard him sing it helped me bridge over into country music. I started hearing great country songs, songwriters and singers … and I just fell in love.”

Encouraged to move to Nashville by a songwriting friend, Pitney was the uncommon arrival who receives early interest from record labels. He signed with Curb and began working on bringing his songs and sound into alignment with his musical vision. One of the lynchpins was connecting with his producer, Tony Brown (George Strait).

“Instead of trying to put some songs together to come out of my mouth and create an artist with my face, Tony said, ‘I want to find out who you are, pull it out of you and put it on tape.’ It wasn’t just the way he said it, it was in everything he did. Realizing I can create a record the way I want to and use the musicians I want was an eye-opening experience. We recorded my vocals while I was sitting on a stool and playing guitar at the same time, so it’s a live record in a lot of ways. My hands were untied.”

As music lovers become exposed to his music, rousing receptions may be something he’ll become accustomed to seeing. But they won’t change Mo’s core motivation. “Even if this thing doesn’t go huge, I believe that I can make a decent living playing music,” he says. “And I always knew that I could do that. When I was younger, my plan was bluegrass. I used to buy and sell cars, I did body work and I trained bird dogs. I figured I would just kind of piddle around, doing different things around the music.

“People who have done this for a long time think there’s a place for my music, and I hope that’s the case. My eyes are set on being successful, but success is not number one for me. If I can make a comfortable living and have a career making music and keep my head on straight, that’s my goal. And I think that I have a great opportunity to do that if I don’t get ahead of myself.”

And that kind of seasoned perspective isn’t often heard from someone of his generation. “I’m a God-fearing man,” he says. “I love simple things. I love simplicity in songs because I love simplicity in life. But I’m also very deep, which is weird. I’m a thinker. And I go so deep, a lot of times I just confuse myself and get frustrated, but when I come home and my dog runs and jumps up on my lap, that does something to my spirit. I love to hunt and fish. I love the outdoors. I love my family. I try to live pretty morally square. Pretty clean guy. I’ve got my problems, but I try to stay pretty straight.”

Perhaps the best expression of how Mo Pitney has created his own definition of country music success is found in “Behind This Guitar,” a song by Don Sampson and Phil O’Donnell that may not even make the album. “People tell me I can’t cut it because the chorus says, ‘Behind this guitar there’s just a boy who had a dream in his heart, behind this guitar there’s just a guy that can’t believe he got this far.’ And they point out that I haven’t gotten anywhere yet, so save it for the second album. But I remember sitting on my bed with the dream of just making music the rest of my life. It wasn’t that I had to be on radio or even make a living doing it. I just loved music. Now I’m on the Opry. I have a record deal. And I’m loving the music that I’m making. I can’t believe I got this far! “I’m probably just going to cut the song.”

Loretta Needs To Listen To Independent Country

Loretta Needs To Listen To Independent Country

Hall of Fame Icon Loretta Lynn Has Pronounced Country Music “Dead,”

We all love Loretta but for her to say that Country Music is dead, it is like making a statement in a Box. “I’m not happy at all,” she explained. “I think that they’re completely losing it. And I think that’s a sad situation because we should never let country music die. I think that every type of music should be saved, and country is one of the greatest. It’s been around, as far as I’m concerned, longer than any of it.” Loretta said.

With all respect to our Hall Of Fame Icon, Loretta Lynn, she needs to listen to Independent Country. The Independent Country artists have been keeping the Traditional Country and real Country candle burning for longer than we care to remember. While artists like Taylor Swift and so many others, not even worth mentioning have deserted Country to expand their fan or should I say money base, the Independent Artists have been working harder than ever to keep Country music alive.  The Independent Artists have been putting their money where their mouths are, by spending their hard-earned money to record their real Country music in expensive studios with top class musicians and producers. Some have even spent thousands of hard-earned dollars promoting themselves, with little or no return on their investment.

Loretta Lynn herself has wondered away from Country from time to time so she is no angel when it comes to adding a few nails in Country’s coffin. However, it seems she has realized that something must be said and done about Country and especially about Traditional Country before its too late in her opinion.

It is my opinion and an opinion that I believe to be true that Country is being kept alive by the Independent Country Artists. If it were not for Independent Artists worldwide Country would truly have died a long time ago.

I know there are so many Independent Artists, I could fill a book with their names. However, here are just a few we are familiar with and please forgive me if I have left someone out as it would not have been intentional. It is also to be noted that these artists don’t always stick to Pure Country either but they all support Traditional and Country music and their songs and songwriting mostly prove that point.

Below are a few of the Brave artists/songwriters fighting for Country Music, who deserve to be named for truly keeping Country Music alive in 2020, with their songs and songwriting:

Allen Karl, Donna Cunningham, Larry M Clark, Kent Gill, Dave Caley, Jack Blanchard, Misty Morgan, Rose Angelica, Richard Lynch, Rita Faye, Annemarie Picerno, Luanne Hunt, Keith Bradford, Pat Garrett, Bobby G. Rice, Barbara Blevins, Audre Belt, Mike Contoni, Marty Denton, Marge Miller, Dan Schafer, Wendy, Steve Zuwala, Donny Richmond, Marty Dunn, Terry Crabtree, Eddie Cunningham, Todd Barrow, Terry Lawrence, Dan Kouba, Connie Cassell Tuck, Mandy Barnett, Frank Howell, Jackson Nickels, Crazy Joe,  Shane Bates, James Marvell, Michael Parker, Brad Tucker, Suzy Dalton, Vic Holdroyd, Billy Mac, Steve Hunt, Ricky Johnson, Preston A Starks, Lajay Dailey, Paul Arman, Timothy Bennington, Richard Lynch, Bob McGilpin, Mick McMains, Anna Watkins Anawalt, Tattoo Billy, Pappy Jack Stracker, Tim Fogarty, Dennis DiChiaro,  Caleb Twidwell, Tammy Kendrick, Cowboy Lone,  Chris Loid, Ed Dailey, Dean Holman, Todd Souhrada, John McCabe, Wayne Jacobs, Fraser Newcombe, Steven K, and the Bounty Hunters.

Country music may really have died a long time ago if it were not for the dedication and loyalty of the artists and songwriters mentioned above. “We at AirplayExpress salute you and thank you for everything you do, and hope you will never stop our ongoing Crusade to save the music we all love so much, Country Music.” Frans Maritz

If Loretta gets to read this article let it be known that Independent Country will never let the mainstream artists or major radio stations kill Country music. It will always be alive on Independent Country and Independent Country Radio. Long live Country Music as we know it.

Rhon Inspiration Station: When I say I’m a Christian

inspirationstationNov2013Rhon Inspiration Station: When I say that I’m a Christian

cropped-flag2048.gifWhen I say that ‘I am a Christian’,

I am not shouting that ‘I am clean living.

I’m whispering ‘I was lost, but now I’m found and forgiven.’

When I say ‘I am a Christian’ I don’t speak of this with pride.

I’m confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say ‘I am a Christian’ I’m not trying to be strong.

I’m professing that I’m weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say ‘I am a Christian’ I’m not bragging of success.

I’m admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say ‘I am a Christian’ I’m not claiming to be perfect.

My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say ‘I am a Christian’ I still feel the sting of pain.

I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say ‘I am a Christian’ I’m not holier than thou,

I’m just a simple sinner who received God’s good grace, somehow!

Be Blessed Be A Blessing

Ten Country Albums Turning 40 In 2020

Ten Country Albums Turning 40 In 2020

Despite the polarizing crossover success of 1980’s Urban Cowboy film and soundtrack, legends and old souls stood tall throughout the first year of a new decade.

It’s hard now to imagine the legacies of Merle Haggard, George Jones, Willie Nelson and Dolly Parton without their biggest songs of 1980. Meanwhile, Alabama, John Anderson, Emmylou Harris and Hank Williams Jr. found commercial success while honoring country music’s past.

As for the other end of the spectrum, Eddie Rabbitt and Johnny Lee did ’80s pop-country first, and few over the coming years did it better.

Read on to rediscover 10 definitive country music albums released in 1980.

 

RCA Records

Alabama’s ‘My Home’s in Alabama’

Alabama’s ownership of the charts throughout the ‘80s began with two hits: the Southern rock-inspired fiddle tune “Tennessee River” and the lovelorn “Why Lady Why.” Toss in the autobiographical title track, and you’ve got the first great Alabama album.

Warner Bros. Records

John Anderson’s ‘John Anderson’

John Anderson’s big-label debut lacked the commercial success of other albums on this list, but it deserves a mention for featuring songs of the caliber of “1959” and teasing the future rise of more traditional-sounding options in a pop-saturated marketplace.

MCA Records

Merle Haggard’s ‘Back to the Barrooms’

“The Hag” kicked off the ‘80s by rolling the clock back to his ‘60s honky-tonk output. Forty years later, it’s hard to imagine Haggard’s catalog — or his sons’ covers-heavy live sets — without “I Think I’ll Just Stay Here and Drink.”

Warner Bros. Records

Emmylou Harris’ ‘Roses in the Snow’

Ricky Skaggs, Jerry Douglas, Tony Rice, the Whites, Dolly Parton and Linda Ronstadt eased Emmylou Harris’ transition to the bluegrass-inspired sound heard on covers of the Louvin Brothers (“You’re Learning”), the Stanley Brothers (“Darkest Hour is Just Before Dawn”) and Paul Simon (“The Boxer”).

Epic Records

George Jones’ ‘I Am What I Am’

The opening track “He Stopped Loving Her Today” would be enough justification to list this album here; it is, after all, one of the greatest country songs ever. Beyond that, though, Jones covers Tom T. Hall (“I’m Not Ready Yet”) and Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson (“Good Hearted Woman”) on this project.

Columbia Records

Willie Nelson & Family’s ‘Honeysuckle Rose’ Soundtrack

The other impactful country music soundtrack of 1980 featured film star Willie Nelson and a few of his famous friends, including Jeannie Seely, Hank Cochran and Johnny Gimble. Its legacy, though, has got to be one of Nelson’s trademark hits, “On the Road Again.”

RCA Records

Dolly Parton’s ‘9 to 5 and Odd Jobs’

“9 to 5” still gets talked about more than any Dolly Parton song, aside from perhaps “Jolene.” Likewise, the film it’s from earns more praise than anything else Parton’s done outside of country music, philanthropy and the theme park business. Plus, there’s covers of folk and country classics by Woody Guthrie (“Deportee (Plane Wreck of Los Gatos)”) and Merle Travis (“Dark as a Dungeon”) on this album.

Elektra Records

Eddie Rabbitt’s ‘Horizon’

Eddie Rabbitt was a great country music songwriter with pop sensibilities, as heard a decade earlier when Elvis Presley struck gold with the Rabbitt co-write “Kentucky Rain.” Rabbitt continued a run of solo dominance in 1980 with crossover hits such as “Drivin’ My Life Away” and “I Love a Rainy Night.”

Full Moon/Asylum Records

Various Artists’ ‘Urban Cowboy’ Soundtrack

Whether they view it as a source of boundless nostalgia or an ugly blight in between the reigns of outlaw country singers and neo-traditionalists, fans of a certain age feel strongly about the film Urban Cowboy and its impact on the careers of Mickey Gilley and Johnny Lee.

Elektra/Curb Records

Hank Williams Jr.’s ‘Old Habits and New’

When he wasn’t griping about Donna Summer during “Dinosaur,” Bocephus cut some of his better tributes to his father, including a cover of ol’ (and older) Hank’s “Kaw-Liga” and Kris Kristofferson’s “If You Don’t Like Hank Williams.”

Coronavirus Nearly 6000 Cases Close to 200 Deaths

Coronavirus Nearly 6000 Cases Close to 200 Deaths

The Virus Is Contagious and Person to Person Spread Has Been Confirmed

As you might have heard, there has been an outbreak of a respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) Coronavirus that originated in the Hubei Province in China. This virus is contagious and person to person spread has been confirmed.

To date, nearly 6000 cases and close to 200 deaths have been reported globally. No cases have been reported in South Africa, but we are monitoring the situation and the National Department of Health (NDOH) has instituted measures to detect symptoms at important ports of entry.

Bonitas (SA) will also assist the various healthcare providers, facilities and stakeholders through continuous engagements to ensure that they are mitigating risks and implementing measures for early detection.

Signs and symptoms

For confirmed novel Coronavirus infections, reported illnesses have ranged from people with little to no symptoms, to people being severely ill. Symptoms may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 days after exposure.

Symptoms include fever, cough and shortness of breath, and these progress to severe illness signified by varied symptoms, including severe respiratory illness to multiple organ failure. The risk of being infected is higher for patients who may have underlying medical conditions.

Prevention

Currently, there is no vaccine to prevent the novel Coronavirus infection, and the best way to prevent infection is to avoid close contact with people who show signs and symptoms of the virus; and implementing standard infection control precautions.

The following standard precautions should be followed:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water or alcohol-based sanitiser
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Stay at home if you are sick
  • Practice cough etiquette, covering your cough or sneeze
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

Assessing your risk

Airports, harbours and train stations have been identified as high-risk areas where lots of people are around. If you plan on travelling through these ‘hubs’, we advise you to take extra precautions like wearing protective masks to minimise your risk.

As a Bonitas (SA)member, be sure to activate your Travel Insurance Benefit before you depart. Also be mindful of coming into contact with returning travellers from affected areas, especially those with flu-like symptoms.

The immediate health risk, based on current information, to the general South African public is low. But we urge you to take the necessary precautions when travelling to affected areas.

Yours in good health Bonitas Medical Fund South African News

Jack Blanchard’s Column: World Needs A Laugh

Jack Blanchard’s Column: The World Needs A Laugh

My father said, “I’d like to purchase a chicken.”
The farmer said, “Want a pullet?”
Dad said, “No. Just put it in a bag. I’ll carry it.”

“Bewitch me, darling.”
“I’ll bewitch you in a minute. I’m busy.”

They can keep me in prison
but they can’t keep my face from breaking out.

Back when we had the million-seller Tennessee Birdwalk
there were only a million people in the world.

In an old theater that had mice, Misty said, “Down-on-their-luck show mice.”

SONG. “They tried to sell us egg foo young.”

COUNTRY SONG. “Cranky, I’m Cranky for feeling so lonely.”

WARNING: Bears can go 35 mph… Faster if they’re in a car.

There’s a fly in here! I thought this was a No-Fly Zone!

It’s sunny, beautiful. and in the 50s here in Florida.
Makes me feel almost alive!

Our car only makes left turns. I’m never gone long.

HEARD ON THE ARK: “All hens on deck!”

EXCITEMENT IN A SENIOR COMMUNITY… The unexpected pregnancy.

MY NEW INVENTION… The Suppository Gun.

MY SELF-HELP BOOKS… “The Power of Positive Whining.
“Build a Mechanical Squirrel in Your Garage.”

THE LIMO. Misty and I once bought a raggedy old limousine for $90.
We needed transportation and would rather look eccentric than poor.
To add to the effect, we colored it powder blue with house paint and a brush.
At a gas station, two tough guys said they knew the car
and we owed them big money. We’d never been there before in our life!
I floored it and sped away at four miles an hour.

TO A HECKLER: “Why don’t you get a toupee with a brain in it?

A friend said, “I bet you never have a dull moment at your house.”
I said, “I’m having one right now.”

At Christmas, our phone never stops ringing!
It’s those four calling birds!

My dad had a mole on his nose. He had it tattooed to look like a fly.

I’m getting my elbows pierced
so I can wear cuff links with a short-sleeved shirt.

Aunt Bess could jump 3 feet straight up without bending her knees.

My dad talked to himself a lot. Nobody knew it because he was a ventriloquist.

A cashier demanded that I prove I’m NOT eligible for a senior discount.

On Thanksgiving, I enjoy catching squirrels and dressing them up as Pilgrims.

No more chicken for me. The feet get caught in my throat.

Misty said, “My hair looks like a drowned rat.”
I said, “No. It looks like a nice rat.” She laughed.

I’m heading for the roundhouse. They can’t corner me there.

Jack Blanchard.

Brooks & Dunn Announce Reboot 2020 Tour

Brooks & Dunn Announce Official Reunion For Reboot 2020 Tour

Iconic duo end “retirement” for a first nationwide tour in 10 years

Following their recent induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame, Brooks & Dunn are getting back in the saddle and returning to stages across the nation for their first tour in ten years.

Kicking off May 15 in St. Louis, Missouri, the Brooks & Dunn Reboot 2020 Tour will find Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn reuniting for 18 headlining dates from Texas to Massachusetts, wrapping up September 19 in Chicago. The now-legendary hitmakers stepped away from large-scale touring in 2010 following a highly publicized farewell run, but have since found it hard to retire for good. They soon embarked on a popular Las Vegas residency with Reba McEntire, and in 2019 released the Number One selling Reboot collaborations album.

“So much for ‘we quit,’ huh?” Dunn jokes in an official statement. “That horse that we were afraid of riding into the ground apparently didn’t share our sentiment … he gotta fire in his belly raring to go another round or two. I like the ring of it … ‘Brooks & Dunn ride again!’”

“The memories of playing live are what has kept the fire burning for us,” Brooks adds. “Performers who have had the kind of nights like we’ve had with our fans, can never really let that go. Live is where we’re most at home, and it’s gonna feel good to be back in the saddle, let’s rodeo! We’ll see y’all out there on the trail.”

Tickets for the Reboot 2020 Tour will first be available as part of the Live Nation Country Megaticket, with more information coming soon.
