CHELSEA BAIN TO PERFORM DURING SUPER BOWL XLIX WEEK IN PHOENIX

Appearances Set For NFL Experience Engineered by GMC and The NFL Game Day Fan Plaza


PRESS RELEASE

(Nashville, Tennessee...) - Rising country singer/songwriter Chelsea Bain performed at NASCAR's biggest races last year, and now she has her sites set on the biggest week in football - Super Bowl XLIX week in Arizona. Chelsea has been confirmed to perform at three officially-sanctioned concerts leading up to the Super Bowl in Arizona: January 28 and 29 at the NFL Experience Engineered by GMC at the Phoenix Convention Center and February 1 at the NFL Game Day Fan Plaza just outside of University of Phoenix Stadium.

"I was already excited about the Super Bowl being held in my home town," said Phoenix native Chelsea. "And being invited to perform three shows with my band is unreal...I'm stoked!"

The NFL Experience Engineered by GMC is one of the most exciting continuous events surrounding Super Bowl XLIX - pro football's interactive theme park offering participatory games, displays, entertainment attractions, youth football clinics and free autograph sessions from NFL players. A list of NFL player appearances will be posted on SuperBowl.com on January 16. The NFL Experience is a ticketed event, and more information can be found here.

Chelsea has created a legion of fans across the country through constant touring, much of it on the Bass Pro/Webasto Stage at NASCAR races and opening for artists the likes of Tim McGraw, Brett Eldredge, Lonestar and others. Her high-energy stage show, captivating original music and a bigger-than-life persona have yielded over 319,000 Facebook "Likes."

EXCLUSIVE ARTIST INTERVIEW: APRIL KRY


We love getting to know new artists, it's what we're here for. We like to bring them a little closer to potential fans and keep them close to fans they've already won over. We recently interviewed new artist, April Kry. If you're a Sirius XM The Highway listener, you've already heard her debut single, "Fireflies" and she hopes to hit the same stride soon with country mainstream. She's also had her music featured in shows such as MTV's "The Real World" and Oxygen's "Love Games". Her video for her song "Beauty Queen" has been featured on CMT.com.

Success isn't a far "Kry" for this new artist, she's well on her way ...

Lovin' Lyrics: Can you give a little self descriptive bio? How did you get started? How long have you been performing?

April Kry: I started singing in the church with my dad who was the worship leader there. I guess you could say he passed those musical genes along to my sister and I! I've been performing for as long as I can remember. My mom would book me at any and EVERY function/festival/contest growing up, so I feel like the stage is my home.

Lovin' Lyrics: You just released your debut single, "Fireflies". Tell us about the song itself, did you write it? What's the single about? How would you "sell it" to a potential new fan?

April Kry: As soon as I heard the song, I immediately had a connection with it because it talks about falling in love for the first time. It brought me back to those precious moments I'll never forget, and that's what I'm hoping it will do for the listener as well! It's one of those "love anthem" songs you could easily sing along to on a car ride with your girlfriends! The song was written by the extremely talented- Jennifer Pappas, JP Rende and Kathryn Rende.

Lovin' Lyrics: Are you planning on releasing a full length CD or an EP?

April Kry: Right now I have an EP in the works, but I'd love to do a full length in the near future, for sure!

Lovin' Lyrics: In the "boys club" of country music, do you find it more difficult being a female trying to get your music heard?

April Kry: It's definitely more of a challenge, but I think the women of country music are rising up this year. Look at all these amazing newcomers like, RaeLynn, Kelsea Ballerini, and Mickey Guyton! Country needs some strong female voices, and I hope to be one of them!

Lovin' Lyrics: What advice would you give to a new female artist just getting started?

April Kry: My dad always told me to be true to my roots and I think that's really important. Don't try to be somebody you're not just to please people. The fans know when something is authentic and latch onto it.

Lovin' Lyrics: Have you opened for any big name artists? What has your favorite performance been so far?

April Kry: That's my goal for this year! I'd love to be an opening act for a big artist. Performing live is what I love the most. I have to say my favorite performance I've ever done was singing at the legendary Apollo theater in Harlem. It was one of the most humbling and exciting performances I've ever done because of the all the prominent names that had performed on that stage before me.

Lovin' Lyrics: Have you had any really embarrassing moments as an artist?

April Kry: Ha ha...oh yes. There is one particular moment that I'll never forget. I was rehearsing a song for a musical I did in high school. The whole cast was there, and I had to belt this high G, which is insane...but I decided that I would go for it and I guess i didn't get enough air so...I fainted in front of everyone. It was pretty mortifying.

Lovin' Lyrics: What's your definition of success?

April Kry: To me, its simply touching the lives of others in a positive way.

Lovin' Lyrics: Tell us something about yourself that others might find surprising.

April Kry: I'm a bit of a perfectionist...especially when it comes to my music :) It's a good and a bad thing, I guess!

Lovin' Lyrics: How can fans find you on social media and do you handle your own engagement?

April Kry: They can find me on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram...all the links to those outlets are on my website - www.AprilKry.com and yes, I love engaging with my fans. Without their support I wouldn't be where I am today and I'm forever grateful for that. :)

Wolfe describes the album as a personal journey, saying, “Natural Man is a concept that I have wanted to record for a few years. This album stretches me as an artist and as a vocalist, while staying true to who I am. I have known how I wanted it to sound, and how I wanted it to look for some time now.

The up-beat tune features Wolfe’s familiar traditional sound while showcasing a new modern flair. With its catchy hook and foot-tapping melody, “Smile On Mine” tells the story of budding romance on a first date.

Of the new single, Wolfe comments, “My new single “Smile On Mine” really clicked with me the first time I heard it. It represents this important bridge between traditional country and the more edgy, modern melodies we're hearing on the radio these days. That's what I feel like my whole new album is doing - I'm staying true to my roots and my traditional voice, but also growing and adapting with the times. I think my fans are going to love it!”

From his native small town in Miami, Oklahoma to the bustling Texas dancehalls and honky-tonks; Wolfe’s music has been burning up the Texas Charts where he garnered six consecutive Top Ten singles  (“Let A Country Boy Love You,” “That Girl In Texas,” “I Don’t Dance,” “It All Happened In A Honky Tonk,” “The Only Time You Call” and “What Are You Doin’ Right Now”), making Wolfe a “must see” act in the Texas touring scene.

His 2010 release, It All Happened In A Honky Tonk, became such a regional success that it was re-released as a Deluxe Edition by Warner Music Nashville in 2013. The album debuted at #34 on the Billboard Album Chart and has collectively sold 25,000 units.

A seasoned performer, Wolfe has opened for some of Country’s biggest stars and has played more than 400 live shows over the past four years. He has a busy 2015 tour schedule on the horizon. Details surrounding the forthcoming tour will be released in the coming weeks.
