Reba Celebrates No1 Album with Nash Nights Live

rebamcentirebacktogod002Reba McEntire Celebrates No. 1 Album with Nash Nights Live

Known to radiate an infectious energy and sheer joy, it’s no wonder iconic entertainer Reba McEntire was still smiling a day after her thirteenth summit to the top with SING IT NOW: SONGS OF FAITH & HOPE. The double-disc album ascended to No.1 on two charts – Billboard Country and Christian/Gospel – and continues her reign with the most Top Country Albums among women. Reba stopped Cumulus earlier today to celebrate and chat with Nash Nights Live hosts Shawn Parr and Elaina D. Smith.

The GRAMMY® Award winner invited her sisters, mom, Kelly Clarkson, Trisha Yearwood and The Isaacs into the studio for collaborations across traditional hymns and contemporary tracks, released jointly through Nash Icon Records and Capitol Christian Music Group.

Lauren Alaina Stars in new Movie Road Less Traveled

laurenalaina003With a Starring Role in the New Movie “Road Less Traveled,”

Lauren Alaina Has Officially Unleashed on 2017

On Jan. 27, Lauren released her sophomore album, Road Less Traveled, which debuted at No. 3 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, while the album’s title track is currently No. 11 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart.

laurenalaina001To coincide with the album’s release, Lauren joined Martina McBride’s Love Unleashed Tour for a string of dates through mid-March. On top of that, the Georgia native recently completed filming her first feature film, also titled Road Less Traveled, which is currently in post-production and tentatively slated for a 2017 release, according to IMDB. While Lauren couldn’t reveal all of the movie’s details just yet, she did sit down with Nash Country Daily to dish on the experience of filming the movie, the role she played and her Broadway aspirations.

NCD: What can you tell us about your new feature film, Road Less Traveled?

“I’m not really sure how much I can share, but I’ll just tell you about my character and kind of the baseline. I am Charlotte, and Charlotte is a 25-year-old, like mid-20s, songwriter that lives in Los Angeles. She’s getting married. It is this whole story about her journey to getting married, and she can’t find a dress. It’s just a bunch of getting married drama. I really had so much fun. It’s a lighthearted movie. It’s a romantic comedy. It’s the kind of movie that when you’re home in your pajamas, and you want to be comfy, it’s that kind of movie that you watch that makes you feel good. I love being home in my pajamas and feeling good, so I’m excited to share it with my fans. It’s a whole new side of me that no one’s ever seen. I really enjoyed that process. It was hectic, because we shot the whole movie in like three and a half weeks, because I’m touring, and I’m doing everything else. We worked like 15-hour days, every day, for three weeks straight.”

lauren-alaina-sqYou’re only 22 years old. What was it like playing an older woman?

“I know [laughing]. Well, I live the life of a 30-year-old I feel like. I don’t ever really get to act 22 unless I’m with my friends that are 22, which is nice. I make sure I have time to do that. The character is very similar to me. She’s only 25. It’s not like I had to act any more mature or any more . . . I just had to be this role, this character. I could play a 16-year-old . . . It’s not who you are. She’s very similar to me though. She drinks more [laughing].”

Is this a role that you went after, or did they come after you for it?

“It really happened naturally, honestly. I have wanted to pursue acting for a really long time, but I feel like you always have to do it at the right time, because if you do it too early . . . You don’t want it to overpower. Singing is my passion. Entertaining is my passion. Any way I can do that is what I live for. I love to sing, and I just didn’t want to do it too soon that it would take away from it or even that it would hold me back. I just have been waiting for the right moment. It just kind of came to me. It wasn’t something I was seeking out, really. Obviously, my agents and all the people I work with know that I’m interested in it, so when the opportunity presented itself, it came through actually my record label. There was a movie production company that approached the label.

“They were talking about this idea they had to do a movie based around an artist and their music, but the artist would play a role. I think that they talked about it and thought that I would be a good fit, which was such a compliment to me that they thought that I could do that. Then, I was super nervous. It almost forced me into it, which is a good thing, because I was kind of scared to pursue it. Then, it happened naturally. Now, I’m like all fired up about it and want to do it all the time. We’re trying to find ways that I can sneak it in, even though we are so busy right now that I can’t even wash my laundry. I’m like, ‘Oh, let’s act, too. Let’s throw another thing onto the list of things that we do.’”

Singing and acting. How are your dance moves? You might be a legitimate triple threat.

“I can dance, but I’ve never had any type of training that makes me a dancer, but I feel like if I had an extensive time of lessons, extensive probably, I would be a decent dancer.”

Broadway here you come. You’re the next Jennifer Nettles.

“I really think that that’s something I could do. I think that that would be a cool thing for me to do at some point, like a Broadway show.”

Today’s Inspiration Station With Rhonnie Scheuerman

Today’s Inspiration Station With Rhonnie Scheuerman

Share Your Life  – All the believers were one in heart and mind.

No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own,

but they shared everything they had. Acts 4:32

Jesus005

When you read the story of the New Testament Church, you tend to get caught up in its explosive growth and amazing miracles. But here’s a component you shouldn’t miss: ‘No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they shared everything they had…There were no needy persons among them…those who owned lands or houses sold them, brought the money…and it was distributed to anyone as he had need’ (vv. 32-35). You say, ‘If I just had more money I’d be happy.’ You might feel more secure and have fewer worries, but you wouldn’t necessarily be happier. In the Journal of Happiness Studies, researchers looked at what distinguished quite happy people from less happy people. One factor consistently separated those two groups. It’s not about how much money you have; it’s not about your health, security, attractiveness, IQ, or career success.

What distinguishes consistently happy people from less happy people is the presence of rich, deep, joy-producing, life-changing, meaningful relationships. Social researcher Robert Putnam writes: ‘The single most common finding from a half-century’s research on life satisfaction, not only in the U.S. but around the world, is that happiness is best predicted by the breadth and depth of one’s social connections.’ But you can know a lot of people without really being known by any of them, and end up lonely.

Those folks in the New Testament Church got it right: it’s in sharing with one another spiritually, emotionally, financially, and relationally that you achieve your highest level of joy.

Prayer Heavenly Father,

thank You for putting into my life people I am able to share life with.

People who know You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

Singer Carly Pearce Shares 10 Little Things

 

carlypearce002“Every Little Thing” Singer Carly Pearce Shares 10 Little Things

That Shaped Her Into Who She Is Today “Don’t quit your day job”

Which can be a spirit-crushing piece of advice. Thankfully, it’s one that Carly Pearce never heeded

.

carlypearce001After then-22-year-old Carly lost her developmental record deal with Sony in 2013, she took a job scrubbing toilets and changing sheets at an Airbnb. It wasn’t exactly the future the Kentucky native envisioned when she dropped out of high school at age 16 and moved to Pigeon Forge, Tenn., so she could perform at Dollywood. But here she is, 10 years after leaving Kentucky, thankful that she quit that stinkin’ day job cleaning toilets.

Carly, who was named to the 2016 CMT Next Women of Country class, signed a new record deal with Big Machine Label Group in January. After hearing Carly’s new song, “Every Little Thing,” which soared to the top of Sirius XM’s The Highway, Big Machine CEO Scott Borchetta literally flew across the country to sign Carly to his label.

As Carly gears up to release “Every Little Thing” to country radio on February 22, she sat down with Nash Country Daily to talk about 10 little things that have made her who she is today.

1. You were part of CMT’s 2016 Next Women of Country class. As a woman in the industry, I imagine you’ve heard the word “no” a lot. Is CMT’s Next Women of Country all about saying “yes”?

“Oh yes, for sure. I think being able to be included in that class of women was amazing. CMT has been so amazing to allow all of us new female artists to have a place to kind of have a community and to be able to build each other up and learn from each other and strengthen each other and also realize that there are a lot of really empowering women in the genre that just haven’t, for whatever reason, gotten to have their moment. I just think it’s been encouraging to get to be a part of that and to see how many talented women we have in this town.”

2. You came to a lot of people’s attention, including mine, through your 2015 duet with Josh Abbott, “Wasn’t That Drunk,” a song that peaked at No. 37 on the Billboard chart. Every time Josh performed that song, you got to perform it with him. You got to go do Jimmy Kimmel Live and the radio station tours.

“It’s been amazing. If you just kind of dig deep into my story, I’ve had a lot of opportunities. I’ve been in Nashville eight years and just have had a lot of things come my way that maybe in my brain weren’t the way I thought I was going to get to where I’m at right now, but I continue to say yes. Just took my blinders off a few years ago and just said, ‘I’m going to chase whatever comes my way.’ The Josh Abbott Band situation, they messaged me about a song. We had only been Twitter friends. He had seen me play in Nashville at a thing called Whiskey Jam. That song was never meant to be a single, but it got [such a big reaction] that they changed their whole marketing plan and promo plan to build around that song.

“So I devoted a lot of 2015 and 2016 to that song and, in return, got to go into radio stations and got to go on tour with him. Josh is the king of the Texas scene, and I got to play in front of more people than I’d ever performed in front of and really understood what it meant to put on a show. The Texas crowd is really different from the Nashville crowd, so I had to work a little harder to make them listen to me and buy into me. Getting to do national television, it’s just all of these experiences as a new artist that was unsigned at the time, you don’t get to do that usually. I just became a sponge and said hopefully this is leading me to be able to branch out on my own and let people see more of what Carly Pearce is.”

3. When you were 16, you left high school and your Kentucky home and moved to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. You started performing at Dollywood five times a day, five days a week. Is that like musical boot camp?

“I always joke and say . . . this is just for my dad so that he feels better about the fact that I never went to college and that I got my high school diploma in the mail, but I always knew I wanted to be an artist. I always knew that I wanted to move to Nashville, and I think that Dollywood was a good college for me for a few years of understanding what it meant to have a real singing job where I had to learn how to sing sick, I had to learn how to put on a show every day, I worked with other artists. It was really a boot camp or a college or something like that where I learned a lot of valuable lessons that I use even today.”

4. You moved to Nashville at 19 and then signed a short-lived publishing deal. Did you ever think about giving up after that? What was your thought process when you were 19, 20, and you had moved here and maybe things weren’t working out as you had expected?

“I have a crazy roller-coaster ride story. I had a publishing deal. I then had a developmental record deal on Sony. My situation there just ended up being unfortunate that the A&R lady that was working with me got fired, so I got let go. Of course there were moments that I wanted to quit music. My condo has seen many tears and heard many prayers at night. I’ve always known I wanted to do this, and like I said a little earlier, when you open your brain to still staying in the game and waiting it out and fighting and really understanding that this is a business. I just started to be open-minded to taking opportunities that were coming to me and really can see where every single opportunity that I said yes to that maybe somebody told me not to do or I thought maybe I don’t really want to do this, but it has all kind of connected the dots and led me to where I am now. So I’m thankful for the journey.”

5. What was the worst job you had between the point when you lost your contract to today?

I mean, cleaning toilets in Airbnbs and cleaning sheets is pretty horrible. I would say that’s pretty terrible. People were nasty. Just parties, bachelor parties and stuff. I just was disgusted at how people left them. Leave your Airbnbs clean, y’all.

6. Let’s talk about something that’s not so terrible, your single “Every Little Thing,” which you released late last year independently, has had so much success. It went to No. 1 on on Sirius XM’s The Highway. That’s got to be a huge confidence booster.

“It’s reminding me of the power of a song. I only had two or three days to prep to put this song out once I found out it was going to be a Highway Find. I wrote this song from a very personal place of a heartbreak that I experienced and never really thought anybody was going to hear it. I certainly didn’t think that it was going to be something that would be my debut into the country genre. I thought that maybe my fans would have to buy into me a little bit to understand the artistic side of this song. I joke and say I’ve put out a lot of songs and been a part of a lot of things, but this song, as soon as it came out, it felt like it had its own wings and it was kind of out of my control.”

7. Has the impact the song has had on other people surprised you?

“It’s about a relationship that was four or five years ago, but I wrote it last year. I think about a year ago I wrote it. It’s interesting to have this song come out, and those feelings were so real, but now, so much life has happened and I’m thankful that that relationship didn’t work. It’s been amazing just to hear different stories of people that are going through that or even people that are attaching the song to something much greater like a death or being a widow or something like that.”

8. After “Every Little Thing” gets played on The Highway, what happens? Scott Borchetta just knocks on your door and says, “Hey, Big Machine would like to give you a record contract”?

“You know what’s crazy is the night that the song came out, his staff was kind of already on the move, and within 24 hours, he was on a plane back from L.A. to see me play at the Opry. Before any of the success really had happened, he really was invested and excited about it from the moment that he heard it, so it made me understand. Obviously, when you sell a lot of units independently and you get the buzz around it that I feel like this song has gotten, other people come to the table, but he was there from the beginning. So I felt like he was buying into and excited about Carly Pearce, not just ‘Every Little Thing’”.

9. “Every Little Thing” is going to country radio on February 22. Are you ready for that?

“Are you kidding? I’ve waited my whole life for this.”

10. As far as a new EP or album, what’s in the works? Are you writing? Are you in the studio?

“So, my producer is busbee. Many of you may know him from [co-producing] Maren Morris’ record [Hero] and the new Lady Antebellum song [“You Look Good”] and he’s worked with Keith [Urban] and he’s kind of killing it. I’m actually the first artist that he’s developed, especially in the country world, that has kind of done something. We’ve been working together for almost two years now. We are about to cut the first five songs for my record, and hopefully the album will be out sometime this year. We’re working really hard and getting really excited.”

Indoor ‘drive-in’ movie theater planned For Nashville

augustmoondrivein001August Moon indoor drive-in movie theater bar planned near Nissan Stadium

$10 million project with largest non-IMAX movie screen in North America aims to create ’60s era vibe

.

augustmoondrivein002A drive-in theater that’s expected to have the largest non-IMAX movie screen in North America is on the drawing board for an East Nashville parking lot across from Nissan Stadium.

New York-based director and entertainment entrepreneur Michael Counts is behind plans for the August Moon Drive-In, which will also offer American comfort food such as burgers and milkshakes and several full bars.

aug-moon2_1486428470476_54680274_ver1-0_640_480Counts, who’s known for creating immersive entertainment experiences such as “The Walking Dead Experience,” is raising money towards the $10 million project planned for 14 James Robertson Parkway near Interstate 24.

“We think that Nashville is a great location for it and the concept really fits what Nashville represents,” he said, citing a 2014 study from personal finance website WalletHub that branded Nashville the most “American” of U.S. metro areas.

manager Ken Levitan is among Counts’ investors in August Moon Drive-In, which is targeted for opening by the summer of 2018. Others include music executive and entrepreneur James Diener, talent manager Michael Solomon and Daniel Frishwasser, who has backed theatrical and film productions such as Count’s The Ride.

“We’re really excited about the project,” said Levitan, who also owns stakes in local restaurants such as Adele’s in the Gulch. “We’ve raised some of the money and have to finish the raise.”

poster_0ce7dea1afff4360a42a8a9ac958a090_54684409_ver1-0_640_480Counts has a letter of intent with property owners Randy and Bill Bailey for a ground lease of the 7.7-acre parking lot.

Plans call for a 40,000 square foot air-supported dome designed like a mini indoor theme park with features to include 50 mid-1960s classic cars to enhance the way people experience movies. There’ll also be multiple dining areas; private “tree house” event and party spaces; and a separate lounge that features live music programming before and after the movie along with dozens of trees, grass, gravel pathways and other scenic elements such as a starry sky overhead, fireflies and an August “sailor’s moon” just above the tree line.

august2-5898b56b358a6August Moon Drive-In is expected to operate daily with an initial schedule of 18 showings a week of first-run movies and favorites from all genres that are no longer widely screened. The entry price is expected to range from $8 to $20 with seating ranging from stadium seats to tree swings and the highest $20 cost for watching a movie while sitting in a car.

A membership model will allow people to see any movie without paying admission and will offer other perks such as food and drink specials, seating upgrades and special access. Members and social media followers of August Moon will be able vote on certain titles, enabling the community to choose the programming at selected times
