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 – “Aint’ No App For That”
You probably remember Tony Jackson from his cover of “The Grand Tour” by George Jones which went viral with over 1 million Youtube streams as well as an impressive 38 million views and 982,000 shares on Facebook. The rising country artist has been keeping busy touring with upcoming dates ranging from appearances in Virginia all the way to Oregon. His new video “Ain’t No App For That” directed by CMA winning director Jim Shea is about a man whose dependance on technology destroys his relationship, but in the end he realizes what is important as all his devices go up in flames. The video is a good reminder about what really matters in life and for some things there “Ain’t No App For That.”
We Banjo 3 – “Light In the Sky”
We Banjo 3 have been described as, “the chief proprietor of Celtgrass” by No Depression. The Ireland based quartet combines traditional Irish and American roots music creating a unique sound that has remained consistent throughout all of their releases. The group has just released their fourth studio album, Haven which reached #1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart shortly after its debut, as well as charting #4 on the Word Chart, #10 on the Top New Artist Albums Chart, and #26 Independent Album Chart in the weeks following its release. They have been featured on iTunes, Spotify, and Amazon as well charting in the top of each outlet’s respective folk/new artist categories. With over 60 upcoming tour dates in the next 8 months the group will surely stay busy as they gain new fans at every stop. The new single “Light In the Sky” will have you singing along with its infectious hook and melodies, and the visually striking new video is filled with scenic shots of the group and landscape as they hike to the top of a cliff at sunrise at Harpeth River State Park in Tennessee. Even though it comes from the Americana roots world, the video is also a hit with Country fans being one of the Top 4 trending videos on CMT.com since it’s release.
Brice – “Rumor”
Lee Brice didn’t have to look far to find a co-star for his latest video “Rumor.” The official music video features his wife, Sara as the two bring the song about a long term relationship to life. The video, shot in Nashville, TN features a romantic night out between the two as they try to escape the rumors about them and just enjoy a special moment together. The new song is from Lee Brice’s self-titled fourth studio album coming early November via Curb Records. The new album from the CMA, ACM, and Grammy nominated artist is the follow up to his #1 charting album I Don’t Dance.
AIN’T NO APP FOR THAT
HE JUST SAT THERE STARIN’ DOWN, LIKE A KING WHO’D LOST HIS CROWN I SAID “WHAT’S HER NAME?” HE SAID, “IT DON’T MATTER NOW”
I’VE DONE EVERYTHING I KNOW, HE RAISED HIS PHONE UP LIKE A TOAST AND SAID, “WHAT A PRICE I’D PAY, IF I COULD ONLY BRING HER HOME”
“BUT THERE AIN’T NO APP FOR THAT, AIN’T NO BUTTON I CAN PUSH THAT CAN BRING HER BACK, OH, AND LORD KNOWS IF I COULD SWIPE ACROSS MY SCREEN, WIPE HER MEMORY CLEAN
SAVE THE GOOD TIMES AND DELETE ALL OF THE BAD
BUT THERE AIN’T NO APP FOR THAT, OH NO”
“I CAN BUY A TICKET TO A GAME, BUT WITH ONE SEAT IT’S NOT THE SAME LOOK THROUGH PICTURES ON HER PAGE, OH BUT I CAN’T KISS HER FACE I CAN DO NEAR ANYTHING WITH THIS TINY FLAT MACHINE
I’M A POWERFUL MAN WITH IT IN MY HAND, BUT I CAN’T MAKE IT RING”
“CAUSE THERE AIN’T NO APP FOR THAT, AIN’T NO BUTTON I CAN PUSH THAT CAN BRING HER BACK, OH, AND LORD KNOWS IF I COULD
SWIPE ACROSS MY SCREEN, WIPE HER MEMORY CLEAN
SAVE THE GOOD TIMES AND DELETE ALL OF THE BAD”
“I COULD TEXT A LOVE POEM, POST A LINK TO OUR OLD SONG
I COULD WRITE A LETTER, BUT I COULD NEVER RIGHT THE WRONGS”
