Danielle Bradbery...Just Gets Better!!

LOS ANGELES — After winning Season 4 of NBC’s The Voice in 2013, Danielle Bradbery found success, yet she still felt like she needed to find her own identity. Wanting to take hold of the creative process on her next project, she took four years to hone her writing skills and come into her own. The Texas-native showed that transformative sound when she returned to its stage for a live performance of her album cut, “Worth It,” in celebration of her BMLG Records sophomore album,  I DON’T BELIEVE WE’VE MET, that NPR calls “a significant, and successful, reinvention captured in a taut 10 tracks,” available now. 
“I am so thankful to everyone at The Voice and to all the incredible fans that have supported me along the way. They have stuck with me all this time and it’s incredible,” explained Bradbery. “I had some growing up to do since I won, so it was amazing to return where it all started for me, to show everyone how much I’ve grown, and what I’ve been up to.” A stark difference from the de…

Statement from Jerry Lee Lewis on Fats Domino

"It was a very upsetting day to hear about my dear friend Fats. We spent many good times together, from rockin' on the road to spending time in each other's homes for a good downhome country dinner. We're both piano players from Louisiana. I love him, and now I miss him." - Jerry Lee Lewis

Fats Domino was one of the first inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986. Of the original 13 pioneers, only three remain; Don Everly of The Everly Brothers, Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis. Rest in Peace, Fats.

Saluting Kenny Rogers

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Kenny Rogers’ musical career has touched many different styles of music throughout various generations, and his farewell performance to Nashville, All In For The Gambler, served as a reminder of the musical impact that his career has had – and will continue to make for years to come. An all-star cast of Rogers’ contemporaries – and many of today’s hottest musical artists – turned up last night (October 25) at the Bridgestone Arena in Music City to pay tribute to the Country Music Hall of Fame member, who is in the midst of his farewell tour, “The Gambler’s Last Deal.” Perhaps the most emotional moment of the night belonged to Dolly Parton, who teamed with Rogers one last time on their 1983 hit “Islands In The Stream” after surprising both Rogers – and the audience – with a heartfelt performance of “I Will Always Love You” to her friend and collaborator. The two also reminisced about their lengthy friendship – which dates back to a Rogers appearance on her syndicated…
