BRANTLEY GILBERT’S AMERICAN MUSIC AWARD UPSET – Outlier Country Star Takes Album of the Year with JUST AS I AM

3b8d0f29-ca5d-49a2-bee7-330645493a16

BRANTLEY GILBERT has quietly gone about making music that matters to the people. A full-grown man from Jefferson, GA who made his bones as a songwriter for others and a punch-it-out-on-the-road performer watched as his JUST AS I AM (The Valory Music Co.) took the Favorite Country Album award at tonight’s American Music Awards over critically-lauded outlaw Eric Church’s The Outsiders and living legend Garth Brooks’ Blame It On My Roots: Five Decades of Influences.

“I wasn’t expecting this,” a stunned Gilbert said onstage. “It was an honor just to be considered for this award, to be in the same category as two people I really look up to and respect in this business…I wanna give credit to the people that don’t get all the bright lights and get to take one of these home: the fans, call’em friends or whatever you want to, this one’s for y’all!”

GOLDEN GIRLS IN A COUNTRY SONG!

MT EP

MADDIE & TAE wrote “Girl In A Country Song” on St. Patrick’s Day, signed their record deal while recording it – and yet, just two weeks before Thanksgiving – the duo’s debut single is Top 5 at Country radio and certified GOLD by the RIAA for sales exceeding 500,000 digital downloads. It’s not quite a Cinderella story, as Maddie Marlow and Tae Dye’s incisive writing has been praised by Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, The Washington Post and USA Today, but it does make the young women from Sugar Land, TX and Ada, OK, respectively,  the fastest rising female act in eight years.

“We had no idea people would respond like this,” says Maddie. “We wrote a song where we looked at how the girl in these songs must feel… It’s hard, being expected to be in those Daisy Dukes and that bikini top all the time… Tae and I wanted …
