Na als begeleidings band van Linda Ronstadt te hebben gefungeerd, sloegen de leden van de band hun vleugels uit en The Eagles en daarmee de echte pure country rock was geboren. De song Take It Easy van het 1e Album Eagles is daar een uitstekend voorbeeld van.

Caroline Jones – “Chasin’ Me”
Caroline Jones has released her latest music video “Chasin’ Me.” The new video is a continuation of the storyline introduced in “The Difference,”and opens with a recap of the cross-country car chase that ignited a love story between Jones and co-star Cody Walker (brother of late Fast & Furious star Paul Walker.) The tone of part-2 is set as the video transitions from a fast-paced pop-country rhythm into a slower, wistful sound. Jones’ guarded walls begin to chip away as her persistent suitor follows her through Utah’s Zion National Park and ultimately to the coastal surf-town of Big Sur. From sunrise in Key West to sunset on the West Coast, the 2-part series ends as the co-stars embrace, proving that all things come in good time. Jones is also set to spend much of this year on tour opening for Kenny Chesney on his Song for the Saints Tour. In the the past she has shared the stage with acts including Zac Brown Band, Jimmy Buffet, the Eagles, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, and Vince Gill. In an interview with Billboard.com she cites Zac Brown and Jimmy Buffett personal mentors she hopes to pattern her career after. “I really owe my success thus far to them. I watch them lead by example — their bands, their crews, and their fans all share their values and understand the message and significance of the music. It’s an honor to play a small role in tours that uplift, inspire and bring joy to literally millions of people.”
Nick Alligood – “Drinking Left To Do”
Nick Alligood grew up in the Peach State, but relocated to Nashville, TN in 2015 to pursue his life-long dream of being a career musician full-time. He has toured throughout the country sharing the stage with well known artists such as Easton Corbin, Jerrod Niemann, Joe Nichols, Big and Rich, Eric Paslay, and Craig Campbell. His self-released single “Take a Drive” hit Top 100 on the Country Charts and he currently has over 100,000 followers across social media. His latest video “Drinkin’ Left To Do” was written in honor of his friend and hero, the late Weston C. Lee. The song was co-written with AJ Gatio and Big Vinny (Trailer Choir/Biggest Loser) and was shot and produced by Jacob Meyers and Richard Fishburn (White Boy Rick, Fate of Furious.) The video is presented by Red White & Blue Apperal, a popular patriotic themed apparel company who fell in love with the songs message and was instrumental in bringing it to life and the entire cast of the video is made up of American veterans.
