PRESS RELEASE

(Nashville, Tenn. – July 23, 2014) – Newcomer Nate Green is garnering media attention after releasing his debut single “Wild and Free.” Combining edgy country lyrics with sharp pop elements, the single has a unique sound reflective of the talent’s artistic styling.

A music video was created for the single, which is also gaining attention both domestically and internationally. The video is currently airing regularly on ZUUS Country, Romania’s Country Do Club, UK’s The Lawrence John Show, and is showing increased spins across regional outlets in the East, South Central and West markets. The video first premiered on Roughstock.com, and is available for viewing through Green’s YouTube channel and VEVO page.

Green will be featured in an upcoming episode of ZUUS Country’s “On The Rise,” which will air in early September. The episode will give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at Nate Green’s music and who he is as an artist. For a list of ZUUS stations in your area, click here. Green’s “Wild and Free” video was also added to ZUUS.com’s Country Hunks channel, and can be viewed here.

 Green commented about the song, "Wild and Free is about a reckless kind of love that makes sense in your life when nothing else really does. I wrote it from a 'living on love' standpoint, and it's all about a time in your life when maybe the only thing going right for you is this relationship you're in that allows you to feel wild and reckless while also experiencing a freedom you've never felt before. The song came to life both lyrically and instrumentally while I was traveling the world, and I think the fact that I was experiencing so many of those feelings while creating this track really helped add an honest and unique flair to the song."

Already boasting an impressive social following and fan base, Nate is quickly taking the female 13-24 age group demographic by storm. Numerous domestic and international fan-run Street Teams have popped up, and his fans have coined the nickname “wild things” for themselves.

Green was recently named one of the “10 Hottest Guys You’ve Ever Seen In Country Music” by Teen.com. Additionally, Home Sweet Country has named Green as an “Artist Of The Week”.

A true musician, Green traveled the world to study how music differs in various cultures and which instruments are prominent in various regions and why. His journey took him to Germany, Switzerland, France, Spain, Mexico, New York, Miami, L.A. and Nashville, which gives his music a truly unique sound.

Green is currently in the studio finishing his debut EP, which is set to release this fall. The EP was written, recorded and produced during Green’s travels and is highly anticipated by his growing national and international fan base.

Already an accomplished performer, he’s shared stages with acts such as Little Big Town, Dierks Bentley, Zac Brown Band and Latin sensation Gloria Trevi – and he hasn’t even released a single to radio yet.

SINGLE REVIEW: "DRINKIN' BEER" - RAY SCOTT

SINGLE: "Drinkin' Beer"
ARTIST: Ray Scott

Ray Scott is back and he's ready to give country fans a big dose of "Rayality". If you loved Ray's comedic hit "Those Jeans", then you're sure to love “Drinkin’ Beer”, the somewhat rowdy, irreverent follow-up to the popular single that sold over 200,000 downloads and the video that scored top billing on GAC! The new single is the first release from his upcoming brand new album, aptly titled "Ray Scott" because if there is anything fans love about Ray is that he is simply himself in every song he sings and that wins them over every time. He knows how to keep it honest, keep it fun and keep fans coming back. The album is due for release later in 2014.

Both the song and the album are a “Rayincarnation” for this former Warner Bros. artist. Ray says, "This is sort of a regroup for me – not only artistically, but in terms of my career. My music and my sense of where it fits in the music business has really taken shape over the past several years. So this is an introduction to that for people who may not be familiar with me, and it’s a defining of that vision for those who already know my music.”

Drinkin’ Beer” is sure to be another hit for Ray who had already built a huge, dedicated fan following and is always a crowd pleaser with his quick wit and easy going personality. Fans love him, critics love his music and he's well on his way to showing potential fans what good time country music can be and what it's all about. This is just a great, kick back with your friends on a Saturday night and pop a top song. We know you're gonna love it and if you haven't familiarized yourself with Ray's music, sit down, take a load off and get started with this one. Ray Scott isn't just a one in a million artist, he's a once in a lifetime artist and I can promise that you won't find another like him no matter how hard you try. He has a style all his own, one that no one can duplicate and the reason is that his style is 100% Ray Scott.

You can purchase your copy of "Drinkin' Beer" on iTunes and when you download, please be sure to leave a review and let Ray know what you think of the song!

We give it a "Rayting" of 5 out of 5 Hell Yeahs and give it our official seal of country awesomeness!

PRESS RELEASE

Nashville, TN – July 22, 2014 – Country star Kristian Bush made his solo debut at the Grand Ole Opry on Friday night (7/18). The country singer, also known as one-half of Platinum-selling duo Sugarland, stepped up to the microphone and took the opportunity to introduce his voice and new material to the live audience.

"I feel so grateful, to the Opry for inviting me, to the audience who heard me use my voice, and to my brother for joining me in both writing this song and performing it on such a hallowed stage. It was an amazing experience, like a roller coaster I want to get back on,” said Bush.

Bush performed his new single “Trailer Hitch,” an infectious song that carries the underlying message of enjoying the gift of giving back over the desire for material things. Already available for pre-order on iTunes, "Trailer Hitch" is set to hit Country radio nationwide on July 28. He also treated the packed crowd to the tune “Southern Gravity,” his own love song to the South. Both songs will be featured on Bush’s upcoming debut solo album for which he is collaborating with longtime producer Byron Gallimore to be released on Streamsound Records.

Bush has been leaving his mark on music for more than two decades.

To date, Bush garnered six BMI Awards for his songwriting, and in 2011 founded the music publishing company and songwriting collective Songs of the Architect. Recent producing/songwriting collaborations include Mike Elizondo, Rita Wilson, Dia Frampton, Ellis Paul, Matt Nathanson, the dB’s, Martin Johnson of Boys Like Girls, Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale, and up-and-comers including Larkin Poe, Natalie Stovall, Canaan Smith, Jaida Dreyer, Alana Springsteen, and The Voice contestant Savannah Berry.
