Right now, my right arm Mr. Joshua Wallace wrote a terrific article about their recent Georgia show HERE. I wanted to talk about the new release and give you the rundown on the track listing in this article.

The Steel Woods have been one of my favorite live bands in the last 10 years, and they have endured more tragedy than many of their ilk. In my opinion, they are destined to become larger than life because all what they have endured would have sent other bands home crying.

Last month, my staff writer Mr. Donnie Shelly wrote a heartfelt tribute to Mr. Jason “Rowdy” Cope, you can read that HERE.

Next weekend, The Steel Woods will be releasing this third album in my own turf here in Nashville! Their album release party will be May 14th at the Nashville Palace. There they will be be playing the album for us, and it will be available for sale.

Track Listing:

  1. Intro
  2. Out Of The Blue
  3. You’re Cold
  4. You Never Came Home
  5. Ole Pal
  6. I Need You ( Ashley Monroe )
  7. Run On Ahead

On the Rise Country Artist, Noah Garner, Releases Official Video in Support of Upbeat Summer Anthem, “Spring Break Town”

I have been catching up on some new albums today, and ran across this young man. Initially I really didn’t like the more “radio friendly” format of the first song there, however as I delved deeper into this short album, I did enjoy the last two songs.

One was called “Cover Up Tattoo” which I’m quite sure many people can easily relate to. I guess this album had more a pop flavor to it, but you know what? I liked it!

I think when I was the age of this artist here, I also spoke of the dreaded hangover and swore I was never “Gonna Drink Again”. Ohhhh yes I had so many vivid memories of being sick all those mornings. Even though this song is targeting younger listeners, it speaks to older listeners who have those memories.

Watch the official video for “Spring Break Town” here.

ON THE RISE COUNTRY ARTIST, NOAH GARNER, RELEASES OFFICIAL VIDEO IN SUPPORT OF UPBEAT SUMMER ANTHEM “SPRING BREAK TOWN”

Video Premiered and Featured on AIM MUSIC and Nashville Country TV

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 20, 2021) — Noah Garner, an on the rise Country music singer/songwriter has released the official video in support of his current EP and featured single of the same name, “Spring Break Town.” The video was premiered by AIM MUSIC, and it was also featured on Nashville Country TV. The message to viewers is the hope it brings up memories for people of that one time, with that one person, in that one special beach town that they never want to forget. Video content was captured in Panama City Beach, FL featuring Garner with special guest Damara Coniglione by ThreePartFilms and directed by Jordan Marking. Watch the video on the Noah Garner Music YouTube Channel.

The story behind the video is a guy meets an amazing girl while on Spring Break and has one of those hot, fast burning loves. She has to leave back home, but she never leaves his mind. When he returns to perform a show in the same town, she goes back too, and comes out to his show, and they reconnect.

Noah wanted to highlight some iconic places in and around Panama City Beach with the visuals and the production team did an amazing job capturing footage in six locations all in one day.

“The artist and team for Noah Garner are a powerhouse of talent and beautiful humanity. They are fun to work with, professional and genuine people that I will always say yes to working with,” shared ThreePartFilms – Jordan Marking. “After working with them, it always feels like family.”

“The story and video for “Spring Break Town” basically made itself as it is built into the song and it is so easy to understand, everything just fell into place perfectly,” stated Noah Garner.

The upbeat Summer anthem was co-written by Noah Garner and Lenny Pey, produced by Michael Cruz and Buddy Hyatt and recorded at Freeway Sound Studios and Music City Trax. Distribution is being serviced by Mercia Records/Sony Orchard. Music is available for download and streaming here.

“I wrote this song because I have lived and heard the stories of many people that had experienced the excitement of Spring Break. I lived in Panama City Beach for ten years, and I was able to add my own personal story to it,” shared Noah Garner. “I came up with the idea when I was talking to my mom and best friend about Panama City and said the words “it’s nothing but a spring break town” and I ran with the idea. It is the first song that my good buddy, Lenny Pey, and I worked on together.”

The Caverns To Return To Underground Shows.

 News  Comments Off on The Caverns To Return To Underground Shows.
May 082021
 

Out of the many venues I ardently support in my area, The Caverns have always been one of them. In this article, I shall be telling you about how they adapted to the pandemic, to recover from being closed.

In February, I published an article HERE about how they had returned to live music by devising a plan to host above ground shows on their property all spring this year. However it has been announced that they will be returning to the underground facility in august.

Here is a plethora of information on what’s going on for the next few months, and as far as I can tell, they will be returning to the underground in august. It appears to be the outdoor pod atmosphere that will be continuing until august 8th.

Now, this brings me to another quandary that hasn’t yet been resolved by my own emails. I bought tickets last year for the taping of Bluegrass Underground, and it has not been rescheduled or re announced yet.  I’m currently hanging onto my tickets, in hopes that they will re schedule it underground as it was intended.
