Top 100 Movers

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year. His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year. Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.” Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.

Dolly Parton has been named to the 2021 TIME100, TIME’s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. The list, selected by editors and now in its eighteenth year, recognizes the impact, innovation and achievement of the world’s most influential individuals. Dolly’s profile piece was written by her God-daughter, Miley Cyrus. In the opening of the piece, Miley writes, “Have you ever met anyone who doesn’t love Dolly Parton? I never have. Dolly is not only my idol because of her incomparable career—she’s also my role model because of her steadfast morals and values. At her core, she is the definition of a humanitarian. She’s also the world’s most impeccably purposeful walking contradiction, having developed her iconic look after being inspired by the town tramp. Now she’s known as a saintly, even godlike, figure.” Miley adds, “There’s a theory that you shouldn’t meet your heroes, but I wish everyone had the chance to meet Dolly Parton, because she’s even better than your sparkliest dreams. She may be my fairy godmother, but I think she’s that to everyone else too. I am happy to share her with the world.” View Dolly’s entire Time 100 profile, written by Miley Cyrus, here: https://time.com/collection/100-most-influential-people-2021/6096090/dolly-parton/ Along with Kane, the 2021 Time 100 [...]

It’s finally fall, meaning college football is back, and we all know how intertwined it is with country music! There are many superstars that have proudly shared their love of football, and their SEC affiliations, throughout their careers – including Kenny Chesney.  View this post on Instagram A post shared by Kenny Chesney (@kennychesney) It’s just been announced that the Knoxville native is teaming up with the Southeastern Conference and ESPN to executive produce a new 90-minute film called More Than A Voice – telling the stories of iconic football play-by-play announcers from the SEC. The SEC became an institutional custom in the South long before TV sets were household commodities, so play-by-play radio announcers were the only way fans could be a part of the game if they weren’t there in person, and these voices became an integral part of the identity of each team.   The film will highlight announcers such as Tennessee’s John Ward, Alabama’s John Forney and Eli Gold, Florida’s Mick Hubert, Georgia’s Larry Munson, and more. The film will be produced by Don Lepore and directed by Shaun Silva. When asked about being involved with the film, Kenny shared, “It was important for me to be a part of this film, [...]

Carly Pearce‘s new album, 29: Written In Stone arrives Friday. One of the tracks from the 15-song project is “Never Wanted To Be That Girl” – which features Ashley McBryde! Carly says that she’s known Ashley for years, and always wanted to work on something with her…so, much like she did when she asked Luke Combs to write “I Hope You’re Happy Now” – Carly took a shot and asked Ashley if she wanted to work together, “I know that Ashley and I are very different, but in a lot of ways…musically and vocally we’re quite similar, and I would sit next to her in ’rounds that we’ve played over the years, and just be like ‘uh, I want to sing with her’ and I just asked her if she wanted to write a song, much like I did with Luke (Combs) and she did.” Ashley shares, “I think we discussed a couple of, not really exchanging stories about being cheated on, but some scenarios that could happen. How does other girl meet guy? How does this happen? And I think we started with the first line. We were just talking about what if it were as innocent as needing help changing a [...]

Congrats to Thomas Rhett who claimed the number-one spot in country music with “Country Again.” Thomas was in full dad-mode sitting on his couch next to his daughter Lennon, when he recorded a message of thanks for the success of his song… Turns out that Thomas can also thank his wife, Lauren, and the stay at home orders of 2020 for the hit song as well. You see, Thomas did not do well at the start of quarantine last year. He was thrown out of his routine, and in a way, with all the time he had on his hands…he didn’t know what to do with himself. But it was a conversation with Lauren, that help center Thomas back on the things he knew were important. That’s where the song “Country Again” found its footing. Thomas shares the story, “The first 30, 40 days of quarantine I was freaking out cause I did not know what to do. You know, I was like, ‘We’re supposed to be in rehearsal. We’re supposed to be on the road. We’re supposed to be doing this.’ And my wife was like, ‘Honey, I think you have to just realize that you can’t do this right now. So, maybe why [...]

When George Birge got to meet Clay Walker on a songwriter’s retreat, he immediately knew this was his chance to ask questions and get advice from a country singer and songwriter that he looked up to. Not wanting to miss his chance George asked Clay what he should do to help his career, and get his music to a wider audience. Clay looked at the younger artist and said “just put your songs on TikTok”. George admits that was not the advice he expect to get. But it turns out that Clay knows what he’s talking about…the country crooner is very active on the app with nearly a million followers. @claywalkerAnother favorite from the album ##TexasToTennessee. ##LovingYouThen ##countrymusic ##ranchlife ##farmtiktok ##dadlife ##cows ##cowsoftiktok♬ Loving You Then – Clay Walker So, George took a leap of faith…or maybe a click of faith, and he signed on to the social media site. After getting the advice from Clay, George shares, “I did get on TikTok that night actually, the night he told me. I clicked on the country music hashtag, and the first thing I saw was this girl Erynn Chambers who I know and I’ve become friends with…but she was making fun of country music saying it ain’t [...]

Doesn’t matter whether you’re famous or not…everyone has to deal with online trolls or bullies at some point. Tenille Arts is very active on social media sharing things with her fans…like the behind the scenes of her music video for “Back The, Right Now.” And most of the time what Tenille gets back from her fans is a positive experience with them messaging and commenting in a polite and nice way. But, there’s also the haters…and it’s those people that will try to provoke a negative response from Tenille. Tenille discovered that when someone leaves a rude or mean comment, she addresses that post in a calm and respectful manner, and most of the time she can defuse the situation and even turn the mean-poster into a nice one. She shares, “It’s always funny how the tone changes…if you like their comment and then just say something underneath like it doesn’t even have to…it doesn’t have to be negative you can just be like ‘oh hey glad you saw me on the show.’ You know, it’s just kind of acknowledging that people…when people make negative comments they think that the artist don’t see them or whatever it is but it’s like the second you show [...]

Mitchell Tenpenny‘s 8-track EP, Midtown Diaries is available now for fans to check out… Mitchell shares that the title of the project was inspired by a part of Nashville that had a big influence on his life, “Midtown Diaries comes from, that’s where I hang out all the time. I mean, when we’re done writing songs, I go to Midtown…It’s just right off Music Row. Music Row is where a lot of the writing happens where a lot of the publishing companies and record labels are. So at the end of the day, it’s a really easy walk to get down to Midtown in Nashville. And a lot of these songs have derived from there. I’ve been broken up there, met my girlfriend there. I’ve got a lot of titles from songs there. So it just made sense. When I was putting together this project, this EP to name it after Midtown, because these songs wouldn’t exist honestly, without it.” When it comes to the tracks on the EP, Mitchell says that the songs vary enough that he think there’s something for everyone, “I did so many different songs, so many different, you know, feels and vibes because I wanted people to [...]

Carrie Underwood kicked off the Sunday Night Football game on the first week of the season – which is Carrie’s 9th year of doing so. Carrie loves being associated with the sport, which she says is pretty ingrained in her, “I love being the voice of Sunday Night Football because I grew up watching football…from birth. I’m from Oklahoma – we’re a football state.” Carrie loves the way fans get so involved with the weekly game, and her intro, “Everybody has their teams and there’s such an energy about it. You have your favorites. They have their rivals. There’s an excitement to it that really, it’s unlike anything else, so being a small part of that is absolutely amazing. It’s been so wonderful working with everybody at SNF, and I count myself very lucky and very blessed that I get to be a small part of something that I’ve loved my whole life.â€� While Oklahoma does not have its own NFL team, Carrie remembers heading south to Texas to watch ‘Dem Boys live and in-person, “We would drive down to Dallas and watch the Cowboys play whenever we could. There’s just something about being at a live sporting event or watching it on [...]
