To coincide with the release of his ALL OF THE ABOVE album out this Friday (April 12) on OID Music, ROSS VALORY has unveiled a new video for “Windmill.” Directed by Michael Cotten, the visually thrilling video leans into the song’s Brazilian flair with live action to animation video with tropical seascapes, samba dancers, and picturesque city scenes, alongside ROSS and the other musicians playing the song. Watch the video HERE.

“’Windmill’ is another Latin-inspired tune [from the album] that dances across Brazil!” ROSS says. “It was written on guitar and as a result this is the first time I’ve recorded guitar.”

He continues, “This is the third music video release, on which I am so very happy to be collaborating with Michael Cotten. His work is unique and sophisticated, and I’m honored to have my music paired with his visual  magic. Michael and I are continuing to develop video concepts for the entire album.”

“Creating the videos for Ross Valory’s new music ‘All Of The Above’ has been both challenging and thrilling!” Michael Cotten adds. “To have such great musical inspiration is a dream project for my video art.  Regarding ‘Windmill,’ Ross has created a musical playground that brings to mind a fantasy ‘Sambascape’ that celebrates the spirit of Brazil in an engaging visual party.”

For the track, VALORY brought in Celso Alberti, the brilliant Brazilian drummer from the Steve Winwood band, who lit up the piece, laying down a track where Karl Perazzo [from Santana] added his percussion. Core team member and acclaimed keyboardist Eric Levy added piano and synths. The original guitar part that VALORY played on his Godin nylon-string electric remained, as did some other electric guitar parts he played. VALORY dropped a new bass part on the track and saxophonist Marc Russo finished the piece.

“Windmill” marks the third video and track from the debut album from one of rock’s best bass guitarists and an original member of the multi-platinum band Journey until his 2020 departure. It follows the album’s two previous Cotten created for Wild Kingdom (with its Latin-fired intensity) and Tomland” (the album’s hypnotic first single).

The track’s credits are as follows:

ROSS VALORY always had pieces of music tucked away that he had written, although songwriting contributions to Journey slipped away after the first three “experimental” albums. As a member of Journey, VALORY concentrated on shaping the rhythm section and contributing his baritone vocals to the background blend.

During the band’s second coming following the 1995 reunion album Trial By Fire, VALORY began sorting through his files and polishing up some of his old notes. In between tour dates, he pulled together a tight-knit group of collaborators and slowly began to finish what he started. After a lifetime in music, VALORY scrupulously etched ALL OF THE ABOVE. The album was produced by VALORY and co-produced by Jacob Stowe and Eric Levy.

VALORY developed a repertory company of musicians over the years that came together at his studio. He cultivated individual numbers like sprawling projects, experimenting with different arrangements played by an assortment of musicians. Sometimes spending years jamming on these ideas, the pieces took shape slowly. Different ideas were tried and discarded, remodeled and refurbished. The basic concept was to find the heart of the material and expand upon it until VALORY could refine and shape the music’s path to his supreme satisfaction. He cast specific musicians to specific parts. The studio became his laboratory and the compositions his experiments.

From the Latin-fired intensity of “Wild Kingdom” to the ethereal dirge of “No One Wins a War,” the raucous party on “Low Rider” or the brilliant reprise of Santana’s “Incident of Neshabur,” the album presents an evolved artist fully in command of his vision, a lifetime of experience behind the project, augmenting his core associates with guest musicians such as Gregg Errico of Sly & the Family Stone, drummer Steve Smith, and saxophonist Marc Russo. The nine tracks on the album represent the full maturity of VALORY’s musical gifts, cutting a broad swath through the instrumental territory the music travels. He plays keyboards, guitar, and, of course, many basses in a display of cultivated virtuosity across a palette far broader than could be found in his work with Journey. He is stepping out from behind his bass and, for the first time in his more than half-century as a professional musician, representing his vision and his compositions.

VALORY left Journey in 2020 and the band members worked out their issues in a peaceful mediated settlement. VALORY, who spent most of his life as a member of Journey, has no regrets. He counts his blessings at having spent an amazing career with a remarkable group of musicians who succeeded beyond their wildest dreams.

ABOUT JAKE JACOBSEN

Country crooner Jake Jacobson is cut from a different cloth.

A world-class athlete from the age of five, Jacobson performed at levels most people never dream of — all before he turned 17. And during the most stressful times of his young career, Jacobson turned to country music. Now, the neo-traditional “throwback kid” is spinning his own country gold.

With roots in Reno, Nevada, and an upbringing in a Northern California ranching town of 2,000 people, Jacobson finds himself drawn to the stories and lifestyles of the unique characters intersecting his life. And those are precisely the people and places that jump from the speakers on his latest work, the four-song EP Reno.

On Reno, Jacobson celebrates what made him — from the blistering weather of Nevada’s high desert to the neo-traditional country sounds he first heard from his dad’s own honky tonk band in the late 90s and early 2000s. You don’t need to listen hard to hear the influence Jacobson pulled from getting up on stage as a young kid and singing along to Brooks & Dunn’s “Neon Moon” with his dad.

But Jacobson is far from a tribute act. Much like his heroes before him (artists like Keith Whitley, Randy Travis, and Cody Johnson), Jacobson finds inspiration in the people and places that make his perspective unique.

“Reno is a city where there’s no last call,” Jacobson says. The combination of alcohol, gambling, and nearby outdoor destinations like Lake Tahoe make it a unique cross-section of all kinds of kinds. In his song “First Call,” Jacobson turns that trope on its head as a clever ode to leaning on the reliable ones in your life instead of the vices that can dig you deeper into the ground.

Reno the EP is much like Reno the city, in a lot of ways. For one, the four-song EP takes turns that feel uniquely distinct but each vital to what makes the work whole — much like the changing weather in the mountain town. “We truly have all four seasons of weather,” Jacobson says. “You just never know when one season stops and the other begins because they rotate year-round.”

And while Jacobson’s rising path to success is one tinged with a tip of the hat to the modern age — his first big break came when Randall King caught wind of a cover he posted on Twitter and invited him to come out to Nashville, eventually leading to his debut EP with Trent Willmon and a slew of dates opening for artists like King, Clay walker, and Kip Moore — there’s no doubt his continued success will be a testament to the timeless values of hard work and good storytelling.

ABOUT TIGIRLILY GOLD

Sister duo Tigirlily Gold has been playing music together since they could walk, and officially formed their band in high school. Growing up, they crisscrossed the mid-west, growing a fierce fan base and selling out amphitheaters across their home-state of North Dakota. After moving to Nashville, they landed a weekly residence at Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row on Nashville’s famed lower Broadway. Playing four-hour sets, three to four nights a week, the sisters developed a performance style that’s not only captivating and fun but shows just how much entertaining is in their blood.

After releasing their original song “Somebody Does,” in 2021, the track topped the iTunes chart and Tigirlily Gold was signed to Monument Records. They released their self-titled debut EP in July 2021, working with multi-Grammy Award Winner Shane McAnally, and hit the road with artists Walker Hayes and Ashley McBryde.

Now, the powerhouse duo has embarked on a new musical chapter with their latest EP, Blonde – a deeply personal record that includes poignant tales of love and loss alongside powerful anthems and songs of female empowerment. The first release off the EP, “Shoot Tequila,” came out in January and has already found viral success with over 50 million views on the song across social media. Ready to bring girl group energy back to country music, Tigirlily Gold is poised for a breakout year.

The documentary is available to order on DVD HERE.

The program is an engaging 1-hour documentary about the making of this tribute album to Chet Atkins featuring 22 artists (read full list of artists HERE) from the country, rock, bluegrass and acoustic musical realms. Due out April 19, it contains some of the world’s best artists and guitar players including Vince Gill, Eric Clapton, Tommy Emmanuel C.G.P., Ricky Skaggs, James Taylor, Alison Krauss, Brad Paisley, Sierra Hull, and many more. The documentary was executive produced by Martin Fischer and produced and directed by Kathryn Russ for Opry Entertainment Group.

Kathryn Russ, Producer Quote:

“The first day of filming was marked by Tommy Emmanuel’s recording of ‘Mr. Guitar.’ However, it was his intimate stories that truly captured the essence of the man they sought to honor. Chet Atkins was more than just a talented producer, studio head, and guitarist; he was also a humble, caring mentor who left a profound impact on countless musicians. Everyone interviewed for the project, including Vince Gill, Ricky Skaggs, Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, and others, shared humorous and heartfelt stories. Grammy-winning Producer Carl Jackson helmed the tribute album which anchored our narrative. As a producer, ‘Chet, We Still Can’t Say Good Bye’ meant more to me than mere documentation; it was a labor of love and a testament to the enduring legacy of the man known as Mr. Guitar.”

Martin Fischer, Executive Producer Quote:

“Producing this TV special on the making of the new tribute album for iconic Opry member Chet Atkins has been truly inspiring. It’s been a remarkable experience witnessing legendary artists unite to honor Chet’s legacy. Through this special, we hope viewers experience the timeless and lasting influence the extraordinary Chet Atkins had on country music.”

Opry Entertainment Group and Morningstar Music Productions recently announced a collaboration HERE with The Opry Shop for WE STILL CAN’T SAY GOOD BYE – A Musicians’ Tribute to Chet Atkins. Opry Entertainment Group will be the main selling channel for a variety of physical packages including vinyl albums, limited edition numbered vinyls and orange color vinyls, CD’s, and the DVD.

The album WE STILL CAN’T SAY GOOD BYE was conceived and produced by 3-time Grammy-winning, bluegrass and country songwriter, producer and guitarist Carl Jackson, a longtime Glen Campbell collaborator, vocal arranger for TRIO II with Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton; Jackson also produced the 2003 Grammy-winning Country Album of the Year Livin’, Lovin’, Losin’ – Songs Of The Louvin Brothers. He has had songs recorded by Garth Brooks, Ricky Skaggs, Rhonda Vincent, Emmylou Harris, and Trisha Yearwood.

CHET ATKINS is the most recorded solo instrumentalist in music history who traveled far to become “Mr. Guitar.” The journey took the legendary icon from Appalachian poverty to international acclaim, from utter obscurity to three Halls of Fame. He is a 14x Grammy Award winner, a Grammy Lifetime Achievement recipient, A Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and a Country Music Hall of Fame inductee. Now, for the very first time on one album, some of the world’s best guitar players and artists join together to pay a musicians’ tribute to the innovator, songwriter, producer, record company executive and visionary Chet Atkins, as Nashville and the music industry prepare to celebrate what would have been his 100th birthday on June 20.

ABOUT MORNINGSTAR MUSIC PRODUCTIONS:

Morningstar Music Productions was created by executive producers and longtime great friends Rodger Glaspey and Ken Leister. The two partners performed in groups that recorded albums during the 70’s as collegians during the Folk/Rock invasion. Carl

Jackson approached Rodger and Ken with the desire to produce an album to honor Chet Atkins. The temptation to executive produce an album in Nashville paying homage to Chet Atkins with some of the finest artists and guitar players in the world including Vince Gill, Tommy Emmanuel, Brad Paisley, and other greats was too captivating to pass up… and thus, Morningstar Music Productions was born, with their first album release We Still Can’t Say Good Bye – A Musicians’ Tribute To Chet Atkins out April 19.

ABOUT STEPHEN WESLEY AND FLAMINGO TWIN

Stephen Wesley is a 2x Billboard charting artist. The genre-bending country singer/songwriter has collaborations with several of music’s most accomplished and well-known bands and solo acts. From Slash of Guns N’ Roses fame, to Smash Mouth, Bubba Sparxxx and his recent release, “Rock N Roll ft. T-Pain,” Stephen continues to push the boundaries of music and create his own sound. Flamingo Twin also features Kenny Harris (formerly of Panic! at the Disco); Jerrod Bettis (formerly of OneRepublic); Nathan December (formerly of Goo Goo Dolls), and Michael Ward (formerly of The Wallflowers).

ABOUT LOGAN MIZE

Ten years ago, when Logan Mize was busy being a Music Row staff songwriter, he’d occasionally feel homesick for Kansas, where he grew up. So, he invented a way to get back there without leaving Nashville.

“My friend Blake Chaffin and I came up with this imaginary town called Prairieville,” Mize says. “Blake is from Kansas, like me, and we have this certain way of speaking, with similar quirks in the way that we say things. So over the years, we wrote about fifty songs together about this town.”

They based the characters on people they’d grown up around and used stories they’d heard as inspirations for their sharply observed portraits of heartland life. “Whenever we’d get together, we’d be like, ‘What’s happening in Prairieville this week?’,” Mize says with a smile. “It was almost like our Lake Wobegon. It inspired us. Gradually, it morphed from writing about a town into a certain style of writing that we found to be completely our own, to where we could really tell that our songs had a certain stamp on them. We took the best of those songs and that’s this project.”

Welcome to Prairieville, Mize’s fifth album, may be based on a fictional place, but it’s also his most deeply personal work to date. And while the project was first conceived in Nashville, he’s now closer to a real-life version of Prairieville, as he and his family recently moved back to Kansas, to his wife’s family farm in Andale.

ABOUT CHASE WRIGHT

Chase Wright is doing more than make his childhood dreams come true: he’s introducing himself as a bold new Nashville artist with a freewheeling approach to genre, firm footing in relatable storytelling and soft spot for big choruses. Respect for country music’s way around a story without feeling beholden to it defines the Indiana native’s energetic songs, which rely on electric loops and pop-rock chords alongside more traditional sounds made from steel strings and wood. It’s a confident blend that belies the fact that Wright first picked up a guitar as a freshman track star at DePauw University. After graduating with a degree in economics, Wright packed his bags for Nashville, where he has since earned a publishing deal with Toby & Molly Music and signed with Morris Higham for management. 2022 was a breakout year for the rising star who was recognized by Spotify as a Hot Country Artist to Watch and named among SiriusXM’s Highway Finds class. Most recently, Wright was recognized among Pandora’s Artists to Watch 2023: Country list. Following the 2021 release of his debut album Intertwined, Wright continues to roll out new music with his latest hit “Hurt No More” available to stream everywhere now. In total, fans have streamed his music to the tune of 170 million times.

ABOUT KYLIE MORGAN

Kylie Morgan has quickly proven herself to be a relatable storyteller and an engaging live performer. The Oklahoma native is known for baring her soul in her confessional lyrics and leaving her heart on the stage, whether she’s headlining her own tour or supporting acts like Old Dominion. In doing so, she makes her listeners feel less alone.

While Kylie began writing songs at a young age, it wasn’t until her grandfather bought her a pink acoustic guitar for Christmas that it all came together. “I got my first guitar and it just clicked: Here’s where a verse goes, here’s where the chorus goes,” she says of her early songs around age 12. “It actually started to make sense for me, and you couldn’t get me out of my room writing songs.”

She has since spent the past 14 years honing her craft in the writing room and on the stage. Kylie vividly recalls first sharing a microphone with her grandfather at a young age while singing Elvis Presley’s “That’s All Right.” At 14, she set out on the open road and began touring full-time and hasn’t slowed down since.

“ALL I EVER NEED IS YOU,” the second single from the upcoming multi-artist album WE STILL CAN’T SAY GOODBYE – A Musicians’ Tribute to Chet Atkins, has been released today (Friday, April 5) to all streaming platforms via Morningstar Music Productions, with digital distribution worldwide by MVD Entertainment (see the track listing below.) “ALL I EVER NEED IS YOU” is performed by SIERRA HULL, the 2x Grammy-nominated artist and award-winning mandolin and guitarist, songwriter and vocalist. Listen to the song HERE and view a sizzle reel about the album HERE.

“Sierra wasn’t yet a teenager the first time I met her,” shares the album’s producer Carl Jackson. “And she was already playing mandolin with a precision that can only be described as ‘machine-like’. I later found out she was just as gifted on the guitar and a very talented vocalist as well, and her choice of ‘All I Ever Need Is You’ was inspired by Chet and Jerry Reed’s version.”

CHET ATKINS is the most recorded solo instrumentalist in music history who traveled far to become “Mr. Guitar.” The journey took the legendary icon from Appalachian poverty to international acclaim, from utter obscurity to three Halls of Fame. He is a 14x Grammy Award winner, a Grammy Lifetime Achievement recipient, A Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and a Country Music Hall of Fame inductee. Now, for the very first time on one album, some of the world’s best guitar players and artists join together to pay a musicians’ tribute to the innovator, songwriter, producer, record company executive and visionary Chet Atkins, as Nashville and the music industry prepare to celebrate what would have been his 100th birthday on June 20.

ABOUT MORNINGSTAR MUSIC PRODUCTIONS:

Morningstar Music Productions was created by executive producers and longtime great friends Rodger Glaspey and Ken Leister. The two partners performed in groups that recorded albums during the 70’s as collegians during the Folk/Rock invasion. Producer and musician Carl Jackson approached Rodger and Ken with the desire to produce an album to honor Chet Atkins. The temptation to executive produce an album in Nashville paying homage to Chet Atkins with some of the finest artists and guitar players in the world including Vince Gill, Tommy Emmanuel, Brad Paisley, and other greats was too captivating to pass up… and thus, Morningstar Music Productions was born, with their first album release We Still Can’t Say Good Bye – A Musicians’ Tribute To Chet Atkins out April 19.

It happens organically, but I know I can put all the elements in place to bring about a joyous and delirious couple of hours.  That’s more important now than ever.”

FRANKY & THE ALL NIGHTERS
ANNOUNCE “HOT VEGAS NIGHTS” RESIDENCIES IN BOTH
LAS VEGAS AND LOS ANGELES
LAUNCHING THIS SUMMER

FRANKY PEREZ AND HIS BAND
ALSO RELEASE NEW SONG AND VIDEO,
“HOT VEGAS NIGHTS”
LISTEN HERE / WATCH HERE

This year stands to set a new record for high temperatures with the sizzling heat FRANKY & THE ALL NIGHTERS plan to generate with their newly announced “Hot Vegas Nights” artist residencies in both Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Today (April 1), they’ve also released a new single and video, “Hot Vegas Nights.” Listen to it HERE and watch the video HERE.

FRANKY—a Vegas native who previously lived in L.A. before returning to his roots—will perform with his stellar band one show every month in both Vegas and in L.A. starting in June and wrapping in (October). In Vegas, the singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist will take over Red Rock Casino Resort; in Los Angeles, FRANKY will light up the iconic Sunset Strip venue, the Whisky a Go Go. The shows are as follows:

Whisky a Go Go: 6/5, 7/10, 8/7, 9/11, 10/16 (tickets now available HERE)

Red Rock Casino Resort: 6/7, 7/12, 8/9, 9/13, 10/18

FRANKY PEREZ is a dynamic and engaging artist that can take any genre and make it his own. He was born to entertain, whether he’s performing one of his critically acclaimed originals, a moving ballad from the American songbook, or the latest in-demand pop hit. He delivers it all with an authenticity that will captivate any audience.  Life should be celebrated. And any great celebration demands a hot spot and a stage dripping with unparalleled entertainment.

In the “Hot Vegas Nights” show, FRANKY is backed by his band THE ALL NIGHTERS—which includes a blistering horn section and some of Las Vegas’ sexiest and most talented dancer/showgirls. No Vegas show would be complete without a variety of entertainment, so FRANKY is bringing along a revolving cast of up-and-coming comedians, specialty acts, and a burlesque troupe to warm up the audience. This show will be unrivaled and unlike anything on or off The Strip.

“I’m a huge fan of comedy and have always loved it when bands bring comics on the road with them or vice versa,” says FRANKY. “Mostly I want the audience to be engaged the entire night and experience something that hasn’t been done in years. A real Vegas variety show. That’s why we also decided to bring along one of the sexiest burlesque troops I’ve ever seen. Music, comics, showgirls, dancers, and burlesque! What’s more entertaining than that!?”

PEREZ has a special relationship with both Los Angeles and Las Vegas and was inspired to connect the dots between these two sister cities with these twin residencies.

“Since the first neon light flickered in the desert, Los Angelenos have been running away to Vegas for the weekend and when the heat becomes unbearable, Las Vegans flock to LA to marvel at the Pacific,” he says. “Two very different cities, two very different skylines, two very different climates with one striking similarity…they were built to entertain. Just like me and the All Nighters!”

More Quotes from FRANKY PEREZ
About “Hot Vegas Nights”

 What inspired you to form Franky & The All Nighters and call your show “Hot Vegas Nights”?

FRANKY: I was born and raised in Vegas and cut my teeth on the stages of this town. I learned how to entertain audiences from the greats that have graced those same stages before me. I’ve performed all over the world, but I am yet to find anything that compares to the perfect hot Vegas night, figuratively or literally. To answer your question, I don’t know about you but when I find something good…I want it to last ALL NIGHT!

 

Can you tell us about your upcoming residency that will see you perform once a month in both Las Vegas (Red Rock Casino Resort) and Los Angeles (The Whisky a Go Go)?

FRANKY: As an entertainer I’ve always had one foot in Vegas and the other in LA but my shows tended to be very different in each city. In LA I’m known primarily as a rock singer whereas in Vegas I’m able to stretch and explore every genre. This residency is going to be a melding of the two. The bullet train between the two cities without a stop in Baker!

Which songs will you perform? From which eras?

Along with some of my fan favorite originals I will be performing music from the ‘50s all the way to the current day.  When I choose songs for sets, I make sure that I believe wholeheartedly in each one. It makes for an honest set and a memorable evening. I will say that I plan on keeping the energy at a high-level and the band sweating all night long.
