    Known to go “big,” the Big Machine Label Group showcased the first round of stellar talent at Marathon Music Works last night (2/18) during their annual party to kick off Country Radio Seminar (CRS) week in Nashville. Co-hosted by CMT Radio, the capacity-crowd was treated to performances by Superstars Tim McGraw and Rascal Flatts. Hot newcomers The Cadillac Three introduced radio programmers from across the country to the rocking sound of their first single entitled “The South.” Eli Young Band’s Mike Eli, Thomas Rhett and Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley joined the trio for their southern-themed anthem. The Eli Young Band had the crowd singing at the top of their lungs with their most recent #1 hit “Drunk Last Night.”

    BMLG President/CEO Scott Borchetta welcomed invited VIP guests then handed the mic to the evening’s host, CMT Radio’s Cody Alan. Music execs mingling and noshing on delectable nibbles included: Republic Nashville President/BMLG EVP Jimmy Harnen; BMLG COO Andrew Kautz; Big Machine Records SVP Promotion Jack Purcell; CMT’s SVP of Music Strategy Leslie Fram; Red Light Management’s Coran Capshaw, Spalding Entertainment’s Clarence Spalding and Clear Channel’s EVP Country Programming Clay Hunnicutt.

    Halfway through the night, party attendees were asked to raise their “shot glass necklaces” for a massive toast with Florida Georgia Line’s signature favorite: Fireball Whisky.

    To help them get a good night’s rest after the bash, all attendees were gifted a luxury pillow from Comfort Revolution.

    The party will continue tonight with performances by Danielle Bradbery, Justin Moore, Brantley Gilbert and Motley Crue.

    THE CADILLAC THREE PROVES WHY IT’S ALL ABOUT “THE SOUTH”

    February 11, 2014 0 Comments

    Nashville natives Jaren Johnston (Guitar & Lead Vocals), Kelby Ray (Bass Steel Guitar, Dobro, Acoustic & Vocals) and Neil Mason (Drums, Percussion & Vocals) – The Cadillac Three – are quickly making some noise with the help of a few famous friends. The Music City born-and-bred boys boldly sing, “this is where I was born and this is where I’ll die,” in their gritty debut single “The South,” featuring Florida Georgia Line, Dierks Bentley and Mike Eli (Eli Young Band). Watch the music video here.

    “I remembered the first time I heard 'Sweet Home Alabama,' and I was just mesmerized with it. I thought we needed something that would resonate with people the way 'Sweet Home Alabama' did for me as a kid,” said lead singer Jaren who penned “The South,” which sold over 10,000 downloads in the first week.

    The high-energy trio is already building buzz with their unique musical tones, raw lyrics and eccentric styling. The Cadillac Three scored a spot on CMT’s ten new artists to discover list saying, “[the] shaggy-haired three-piece band have already made tons of friends in country music, as you can see in their video for their loud-and-proud single, ’The South.’" A recent Billboard.com profile gives more of an introduction to the talented trio and states, “there's an exciting new sound on the airwaves of country radio – The Cadillac Three.”

    “We call our sound ‘country fuzz.’ It’s the best of both of those worlds – a little lap steel, some raunchy, Southern vocals and story songwriting with big drums. Really, a combination of what we all grew up listening to – Bocephus and Skynyrd – infused with some of what’s going on today – a little Eric [Church] and Dierks [Bentley]. Being born and raised here, we’re just excited to do something a little different for Nashville,” continued Jaren. He has also penned hits for Tim McGraw (“Southern Girl”), Keith Urban (“You Gonna Fly”) as well as several others for Kenny Chesney, Jake Owen and Dierks Bentley.

    While spending time the last several months visiting radio stations across the country, The Cadillac Three is set to tour Europe with Eric Church this Spring and return stateside to join Jake Owen on his DAYS OF GOLD TOUR, beginning March 20. On April 4, they will perform in Las Vegas during the ACM PARTY FOR A CAUSE Festival alongside labelmates Rascal Flatts and Thomas Rhett, benefitting Outnumber Hunger to help secure meals at local food banks for the 1 in 6 Americans across the nation who struggle.

    In addition to their live performances, The Cadillac Three marked their second appearance on ABC’s hit drama “NASHVILLE,” showcasing “The South” for Rayna James (Connie Britton).

    U.S. Marine Honored as Brickyard Sprint Cup Series Race Namesake

    June 27, 2013 0 Comments

    While deployed in Iraq, Gunnery Sergeant Samuel Deeds, a diehard NASCAR fan, dreamed of working in the sport after completing his service. In 2005, those dreams took a back seat when Deeds placed himself in harm’s way to save the lives of his fellow Marines. This summer Deeds will travel to one of the country’s most historic tracks, Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS), not as a fan or employee, but as the race namesake.

    Today in his hometown of Erlanger, Ky., Deeds was recognized as the winner of Crown Royal’s “Your Hero’s Name Here” program, which awards one deserving individual naming rights to the July 28th NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at IMS. Surrounded by friends, family and Marines, Deeds cemented his place in the NASCAR record books by laying the final brick, engraved with the official race logo, in a ceremonial “Yard of Bricks” at Flagship Park in Erlanger.

    While deployed in Iraq, Deeds came across an improvised explosive device (IED) while setting up a vehicle checkpoint. Upon seeing fellow Marines approaching, he exposed himself to the device, risking his own life to save others. He was severely injured and underwent more than 30 surgeries and procedures following the blast. Three years later, while still recovering, Deeds’ heroic instincts took charge once again when he saved the lives of three individuals caught in a rip tide off the coast of North Carolina.

    In addition to Deeds’ friends and family, special representatives from Crown Royal, Big Machine Label Group (BMLG), and IMS attended the ceremony and spoke of Deeds’ many accomplishments. NASCAR driver Kurt Busch surprised Deeds during the ceremony, appearing on behalf of the Armed Forces Foundation (AFF), and country music star Justin Moore debuted a special song titled “Heroes,” which was penned specifically for the “Your Hero’s Name Here” program. Consumers 21 and over can visit CrownHeroesSong.com to download “Heroes” for free. For every download redeemed between now and the Samuel Deeds 400 on July 28th, Crown Royal will donate one dollar to AFF.

    “I was so fortunate to be part of this program last summer,” said Moore. “That experience and the brave men and women I met along the way served as inspiration for this new song. The opportunity to debut ‘Heroes’ in front of a true hero like Samuel, his friends, family and community, is incredibly special to me as well as all of the folks at BMLG.”

    This will mark the seventh time Crown Royal has awarded race naming rights to an adult fan. After receiving thousands of entries during the nomination period, five heroes were chosen as finalists and adult fans had the opportunity to cast their votes for the person they felt was most deserving of the honor. As the winner of the program, Deeds will participate in a VIP race weekend experience, riding in the pre-race pace car, delivering the trophy bearing his name to the race winner in Victory Lane, and participating in the “kissing the bricks” ceremony following the race.

    “I’ve been a NASCAR fan for as long as I can remember, so the reality of having my name on a track with such rich history and meaning is beyond words,” said Deeds. “I am so grateful to all of those who took the time to hear my story and vote for me. I can’t wait to attend the race and dedicate that special weekend to all fellow servicemen and women who put their lives on the line every day.”

    Deeds, now retired from his service in the Marines, is a husband and father of two boys. His wife, April, nominated him for the program for his unwavering commitment to his country.

    “We could not be more honored to announce Gunnery Sergeant Samuel Deeds as the 2013 ‘Your Hero’s Name Here’ winner,” said Abby Wise, Brand Director for Crown Royal. “His sacrifice and continued acts of heroism serve as an inspiration to all of us at Crown Royal and we are proud to provide him with the ultimate race experience at the Brickyard next month.”

    The official race title, Crown Royal Presents the Samuel Deeds 400 at the Brickyard Powered by BigMachineRecords.com, will be incorporated into race memorabilia as well as the winner’s trophy. Various events and celebrations will take place leading up to and throughout race weekend to honor Deeds, during which Crown Royal would like to remind adult consumers to please drink responsibly.

    “It is our privilege to participate in this program with Crown Royal for the second year at IMS,” said Indianapolis Motor Speedway Corporation COO Doug Boles. “We’ve been introduced to so many deserving American heroes, and we look forward to rolling out the red carpet for Samuel and all other heroes in attendance at this year’s race.”

    Through a partnership with Crown Royal and IMS, country music artists from Big Machine Label Group including Justin Moore, Cadillac Three, Cassadee Pope and Dustin Lynch, will perform special concerts throughout the race weekend.
