Next Nascar Stop: Atlanta

HAMPTON, Ga. (Feb. 22, 2016) – After the closest finish in Daytona 500 history – Denny Hamlin winning by a 0.010-second margin over Martin Truex, Jr. – the  2016 NASCAR season shifts 400 miles north, to Atlanta Motor Speedway, a track that has seen its own share of photo finishes over the years.  Aside from yesterday’s thrilling final lap, Atlanta Motor Speedway is unlike Daytona International Speedway in nearly every other facet. The track is a mile shorter, the surface is aged and abrasive, and cars’ speeds and performance aren’t reined in by restrictor plates. Additionally, the much-anticipated low-downforce aerodynamic package being used in the Sprint Cup Series in 2016 will debut at Atlanta this weekend. It provides decreased downforce on the car, creating less grip and forcing the driver to manipulate the car more than ever before. It also allows cars to race closer together, enabling more passing at high speeds and generally creates a more competitive racing atmosphere. “It’s goin…

Josh Turner Kills Monster Hog!!!

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (February 11, 2016) – While touring on the west coast this past December, MCA Nashville’s Josh Turner took some time to join former pro football player Mike Pawlawski on a wild hog hunt for Outdoor Channel’s “Gridiron Outdoors.”
The episode, airing Feb. 14 at 6 p.m. ET (re-air Feb. 17 at 1 p.m. ET), follows Turner and Pawlawski in the hills of California’s San Joaquin Valley as they seek out a mammoth 300+ lb. wild boar. Preview the episode HERE.
“What an exciting day,” expresses Turner.  “Mike and the guys were great to hunt with and this hog is incredible.  They say he’s in the top 1% of what they see as far as size goes.  It took four grown men to hoist him onto the tailgate!”

Madd and Tae "Fly " to Lee Brice

NASHVILLE, TN (February 5, 2016) – Maddie & Tae are the kind of girls who are always there for someone in trouble. So when Tyler Farr was put on aggressive vocal rest after surgery and needed to pull off friend Lee Brice’s LIFE OFF MY YEARS TOUR, the female duo easily shifted gears and stepped up, performing the first show of opening weekend last night in Salisbury, MD. 
“When they called us, we were scheduled to write because we’re already thinking about our next record – and songwriting is so important to us,” explains Tae Dye. “I couldn’t imagine being in that position, right as you’re about to kick-off a tour...”
“So we figured, we should do this,” Maddie Marlow continues. “Not only are we friends of both Lee and Tyler, when you put good energy into the world, it sets an example of kindness for our fans. We’ll get back to writing next week!”
Putting pen to paper and melodies to lyrics has been a successful passion for the Sugarland, Texan and Ada, Oklahoman. Their second single, …
