CD: THE PARTONS - No More Chains

THE PARTONS
No More Chains
At Calvary - I Didn't See - Wayfaring Stranger - Stop By Here - No More Chains - Homesick For A Home - I See God - Only You - Preparing For Rain - When God's Spirit Moved
 
Robert Ownby, who lives in Tennessee, is one of our faithful members of the National Traditional Country Music Association.  He's also a very gifted songwriter, and has two songs on this very nice Southern-Gospel country sounding album by the Partons.  He wrote "I Didn't See" and "Homesick For A Home."  It just never ceases to amaze me how 'real' rural music survives, and maintains itself in the hands and hearts of true believers like the Partons.  Does the name Parton sound familiar to you?  Yes it should, Tim Parton is Dolly's cousin, and is a radio and television host and programmer.  He holds the music close to his heart however, with wife and daughter providing some harmony vocalizing that astounds me.  Just as soon as this trio went into "Wayfaring Stranger" I began to realize how dedicated they are to Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. The Dobro player Tim Dingus plays a most soulful lead here, and the song modulates to another key making it even more interesting. The blessings of Christ shine through on this group, especially the musicians that gave their talent and musical understanding to this project.  Shane Roark on piano and organ; Tony Dingus on Dobro, steel, and slide guitar; Burton Akers on bass; David Castle on electric guitar; Greg English on banjo, mandolin, & acoustic guitar; and Johnathon Presnell on drums and programming.  In total, it's a remarkable gathering of gifted musicians, add to this the dedicated and beautiful voices of the Partons, and we have a winner.  I really liked "I Didn't See" a nice up-tempo song that features some really close harmony.  The Rural Roots Music Commission has made some of their selections for CD of the Year awards this year, but they aren't finished yet, so off it goes.

CD: THE HASKEW FAMILY - Songs From the Fiery Gizzard

THE HASKEW FAMILY
Songs From the Fiery Gizzard
Disc One - Fiery Gizzard Blues - I Wish I Were A Babe - Ring A Tiny Bell - My Rockabye - A Woman Like you - Little Ol' Aimsley Jane - You Broke My Heart - Blessed Baby Child - If I Only Had A Tail - The Waffle House Blues - The Wonderful One-Eyed Beau Dog - A Lion Named Sam - Song For A Drifter  /  Disc Two - Songbird - On My Way To You - Drive-In Movie Picture Show - The Lady Of The Highlands - Wintertime - The Old Ball Glove - The Love Story Of The Ages - Take Our Country Back Again - Forever - Bless Us Oh Indeed
 
No doubt about it, it took some time to listen to all 23 songs on this incredibly well done 'tribute' album.  I say tribute, because that word stands out several times in dealing with this project.  It's a 'tribute' to the parents of  both Jerre Haskew and his wife Barbara Lucile Short.  I found that not only refreshing, but a definite indication of how this family holds high their musical pursuits.  If you weren't aware, Jerre Haskew is the founder of the Cumberland Trio, one of America's fondest folk groups.  They won the National Collegiate Folk Festival 1st prize, appeared on ABC-TV's "Hootenanny" and recorded for RCA in Nashville under the guidance of Chet Atkins.  The 'roots' had already been safely ensconced in the mind and musical talent of Jerre Haskew.  After the 60's when folk music began to fade away, he took up work at a bank eventually becoming the CEO before acquiring the Guild Guitar Corporation, and then later co-founded "Sport Talk" but as time went by, wife Barbara wrote a children's book "A Lion Named Sam," and suggested a revival of the Cumberland Trio music.  This led to more time passing, children raising, retiring from business and education, and today this  incredible project that leads me to the second 'tribute' definition....leading back to the Cumberland Trio and all the terrific music they made.  This carefully executed 2-disc release is a wonder to behold.  Holly Haskew Tambling, Jerre and Barbara's daughter does major lead vocal chores on the first disc.  The beginning song, a down to earth rural sounding blues song is super.  She carries her lovely voice through on all of the succeeding songs.  Most of the songs on disc-2 presents Jerre himself as the lead vocalist, as well as a major contributor in the musical instrument department.  What a wonderful idea this whole project is.  And the songs!  What about the songs, where could they possibly find this many terrifically well written songs to record?  Songs that reflect another time of course, but songs that have consistently over the years been an American tradition to tell stories, truthfully, honestly, sometimes simply, in the older folk-song tradition.  For me, it's simply beautiful.  Add to this the gifted musicians that bring the full force of how really well written and interpreted these songs are.  And who wrote the songs?  Both Jerre and Barbara hold them in their own hands and hearts.  Memories, actual experiences, heart break, protest, discrimination, remembrances, blessedness, patriotism, exactly what the folk tradition in America has been over the years, though absent from main-stream radio in recent years, it's back again in full force with this incredible undertaking.  The many musicians that lend their talent to this 23-song escapade are also at their very best.  Mike Headrick might be the most influential providing licks on lead guitar, harmonica (extremely well done on the first song), steel guitar, mandolin, bass and more.  Bob Wilkerson on bass, Lou Wamp on Dobro, Gene Norman on piano, and the list goes on.  Disc-2 features an old personal friend of mine, Johnny Bellar on Dobro.  Jerre Haskew contributes many different instruments throughout the entire project.  In totality, it's an incredible 'family' gathering of super terrific acoustic musicians, creating a 'modern' look back at what was once real, and is again thanks to this beautiful offering. It's hard to pick a 'favorite' out of such a beautiful list of options, but forgive me Jerre, the one I really like is "Drive-In Movie Picture Show" which reveals a little slice of American life now long gone. BUT, for words expressing 'real' feelings, I have to put #1 on another song "The Love Story Of The Ages." Well ok, there's three I like best.  "Take Our Country Back Again" is written in the pattern of Guthrie, and holds the union together once again.  Whew, good stuff here all the way around.  Can't wait to see what happens when it hits those radio stations that still present 'honest' music.  You know, if you want to hear this yourself, you can go to I-tunes, or Amazon, or CDBaby and you'll find it there.  I will be sending it along to the Rural Roots Music Commission, and have a pretty good idea what they are going to do after they listen to this incredible undertaking.

George Jones Museum Opens!

Country Music's finest turn out for gala opening
Nashville, Tenn. (April 24, 2015) – Some of the biggest stars in country music turned out for a red carpet event Thursday, April 23, to commemorate the grand opening of the George Jones Museum, celebrating the life and work of one of the icons of country music. More than 800 people turned out for the gala event.

Among those seen walking the red carpet were Naomi Judd, Ricky Skaggs, Lee Greenwood, Moe Bandy, Joe Stampley, T. Graham Brown, John Rich, T.G. Sheppard, Dierks Bentley, and Lorrie Morgan. Country music great Jan Howard strolled the museum and shared first-hand stories of the years she knew Jones. But the biggest star of the evening was Jones himself and a musical legacy spanning more than 50 years.

The museum is the result of years’ worth of effort by Jones’s wife, Nancy, who announced the museum’s creation last fall. The grand opening corresponds to the second anniversary of Jones’s passing, April 26. The new museum is a world-class exhibition that documents Jones’s life and cements his position in the history of country music.

“I was so touched to see how all of George’s friends came out tonight,” said Nancy Jones. “George always thought he didn’t have any friends and he’d tell me to build a museum but no one would come. Well, here we are, and everybody came!”

Also among the museum’s first attendees was Jones’s sister, Helen Scroggins. Now 93, she is the last remaining of eight Jones siblings. Nashville Mayor Karl Dean, U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, and Tennessee Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey were among the dozens of celebrities, government officials, and hundreds of music industry professionals who turned out to honor Jones and his legacy.

Spanning more than 44,000 square feet, the George Jones Museum features exhaustive displays of memorabilia and photos, video displays and interactive experiences. The museum also includes a 40-seat, rocking chair theatre that shows clips from Jones’s television broadcasts, concert appearances, and interviews.

In addition to the displays of Jones memorabilia and history in the museum and a lobby gift shop, the George Jones Museum includes two restaurants, a public exhibition space and event center, and a roof-top bar that overlooks the Cumberland River and LP Field, home of the Tennessee Titans.

The museum opened to the public Friday, April 24. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for children ages 6-15. The George Jones Museum is located at 128 Second Avenue North, just one block off of Broadway.

New Single Impacts Today, Ed Spacek Spearheading Promotion Campaign


HOUSTON, Texas(April 23, 2015) - Josh Fuller is pleased to announce the release of his fourth radio single, "On The Radio."* The first track from the forthcoming album, KEEP ON BEIN' ME, the up-tempo tune was penned by Fuller and produced by Jason Rooks. Dominated by lead and slide guitar, this driving rocker layers electric guitars with a hint of piano/keyboards and hard hitting drums to provide a full, polished and edgy sound. "On The Radio" is impacting radio now with Ed Spacek of The Spacek Company as promoter. The single will be available May 12th on iTunes, Amazon, and Fuller's website through indieExtreme/ InGrooves Fontana.

"Music is a powerful mood altering drug; the right song at the right time connects with your soul," states Fuller. "We can't always control what happens in our day to day life, but we all have that song -- that song that makes us forget our troubles, put your hands up and start dancing. 'On the Radio' is an attempt to capture that moment when your song, your jam, comes on the radio and, at that moment, everything is okay."
