Vanwege de vakantie heb je de tips van AristoMedia enige tijd moeten missen. We gaan de schade nu inhalen.

We krijgen regelmatig tips van onze contactpersoon bij The AristoMedia Group in Nashville. Deze tips betreffen dan meestal beginnende country artiesten die nog niet zijn doorgebroken bij het grote publiek. We zullen proberen je zo veel mogelijk op de hoogte te houden van deze tips.

Tony Jackson – “Drink by Drink”

The son of a United States Navy officer, United States Marine Tony Jackson began to feel a love for country music at an early age listening to Armed Forces Radio on various military bases. Now a regular performer on Richmond VA’s Old Dominion Barn Dance radio show, Tony came to CRS in Nashville, TN at the urging of his manager, Jim Della Croce. It was here that he debuted his first single, “Drink by Drink” at an intimate media event on Music Row. Tony Jackson has since released the official music video for the single which premiered last week on Country Rebel.

Paul Bogart – Grow

Paul Bogart, simply put, is the epitome of traditional country music. Though his songs are fresh and he himself is young, he is an old soul with a knack of capturing time honored traditions and summing up classic sentiments. His songs are infectiously unforgettable and his fine-tuned performances never fail to garner an invitation back.

The idea for his new single and music video “Grow” came about shortly after Paul and his wife Tanya found out she was pregnant. “It’s a song about life,” he states, “As I brainstormed, I visualized our son while he grew in his mama’s belly, but I also visualized a majestic oak tree that was once just a sprout but grew up to be a great big mature tree. I also considered our own faith, or love that we have for someone.”

Jordyn Mallory – Boat Friend

Singer-songwriter Jordyn Mallory has released her debut music video for Boat Friend. The video premiered Tuesday, May 10 as part of CMT’s Artist Discovery campaign. 

Directed by Les Umberger, the video was shot on Old Hockory Lake in Handersonville, Tenn. with multiple yachts, speedboats and wakeboard champion Nathan Strange included to embrace the summertime anthem.

“Boat Friend,” written by Mallory with Greg Becker and Mike Shimshack, is the single release from Mallory’s self-titled EP now available via Spotify.

“Two summers ago, I was in a Jeep with my girlfriends when one of the girls said ‘I really wanna be single this summer but we need to find some guys with a boat,’ and I said ‘You don’t want a boyfriend, you need a boat friend.’ Everyone laughed and I immediately knew I was going to write that song,” said Mallory.

At 24, the Okolona, Miss native is already making her mark within the music industry. In 2010, Mallory won a position on Simon Fuller’s If I Can Dream series on Hulu.com and later became a contestant on the eleventh season of American Idol. Mallory has since been the opening act for Loretta Lynn, Jake Owen, and more.  Additionally, she is already earning herself a name within the songwriting community and has co-written cuts with Kip Moore and Dan Couch.

She has two Grammy nominations, a CMA Vocal Duo of the Year Award, numerous Billboard chart-topping singles and albums, and has entertained millions of people through film, television, radio, literature, live concerts and Broadway performances.

It was produced by veteran Country/Pop/Latin producer Jason Deere, and features notable guest artists such as Olivia Newton-John, Diamond Rio, SisQo (Dru Hill), John Rich (Big & Rich), Marty Roe, and Alex Boye. The album was in the Top Ten albums sold the week of its release, and the new video from the title track is not only highly entertaining, but also helps raise awareness for the Children’s Mircale Network Hospitals.
