Hello! My name is Alison. I’ve been passionate about country music since I was very young. I got to know music by following styles – rock, southern rock and the country music styles of today – and by cruising through the USA. I’ve also bought a lot of CDs! In recent years, I started broadcasting the “Les News de Nashville” on the Big Cactus Country presented by my friend Johnny Da Piedade. You can read my blog post on the Big Cactus Country site as well as here on the HorizonVU Music Blog and SHOP!

Team News Nashville visited Switzerland last weekend during the 26th edition of the Country Night Gstaad!

The festival was packed with an audience ccoming from all over Europe, attracted by a beautiful poster, the choice of the organizer Marcel Bach, who has put together a program “High Color” in the terms of the American artistic artistic plateau.

THe night featured one of the masters of bluegrass music, Ricky Skaggs, singer Kellie Pickler and the talented Josh Turner. Accompanied by top musicians Mister Ricky Skaggs offered us, as usual, an excellent performance, drawing here and there on the register of classic Traditional Bluegrass withthe inevitable “Uncle Pen” or taking from the Country 80s with some major hits like “Heartbroke” and “Highway 40 Blues.” Ricky Skaggs has announced that he will release a new album entitled “Hearts Like Ours” to be released September 30. Kellie Pickler brought a a very mice surprise!

Kellie sang his hits interpreted as New Country, but she also performed the true traditional country music with good times from the repertoire of her idols like Tammy Wynette. She perfectly imitated the voice of the title Tammy on “Stand By Your Man.”

Kellie ignited the audience with a great version of the famous very rock’n’roll tinged title of the legendary George Jones “White Lightning,” . She also performed covers of Loretta Lynn, Pam Tillis (“Someone somewere Tonight”) and finally, a cover of the legendary Patsy Cline and “Crazy” sung “a cappella,” which was not an easy task ! A very moving show with anecdotes that Kellie Pickler told us throughout the concert. Above all the audience was pleasantly surprised by the talent of excellent musicians and the undeniable vocal power of Kellie Pickler, very impressive!

Then finally came the highly anticipated artist Josh Turner, the top of the poster for the 2014 Country Night. Josh Turner also gave a superb, extremely well-rehearsed performance,including “American” and numerous music videos. The performance was impeccable, so perfect it was like listening to a CD.

We were fortunate to discover a preview of the new single which arrives this week on American radio waves but also on iTunes, entitled “Lay Low,” a title that will appear on a new album, but we still do not know the name and release date. Josh Turner has not lost his way, but for a while he became commercial reminding us repeatedly of the address of his website www.joshtuner.com,

mentioning the name of its sponsor “Ariat” which is just another brand of boots and not to forget the release of his first book “Man Stuff” In short, the pure direct sales Live! As you can see, the 27th edition of the Country Night Gstaad was a real success!
