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!

The son of Hank Williams will set fire to Nashville. It will be a very special night for Hank Jr, because December 31, 2013 is also the 60th anniversary of the death of his father. Hank Williams, Jr. also known as the “Bocephus” told the American press “that there had never been a day of the year, in honor of his father.” This will be a first for him. If Hank Williams had lived, he would have been 90 years old.

Here is somle great news. I have to say one word: Excellent! I’m of course talking about the concert in France by the family trio, The Band Perry, who performed their first concert in Paris as part of their world tour through the production company Very Show.



The small venue, Le Divan du Monde was packed and the atmosphere encouraged a very reactive and public! The group offered a unique and dynamic show, country rock tinged with a hint of pop. Kimberly, Neil and Reid Perry, were able to set fire to Le Divan with the powerful voice of Kimberly with her two brothers and great musicians!

We have experienced their great joy to finally play in France after 15-year career and two visits to the French capital as tourists! They interpreted their finest tracks. We like the song “If I Die Young”, as well as the “Postcard From Paris”, “Better Dig Too”, their first hit “Hip To My Heart”, and their superb single “Do not Let Me Be Lonely”!

The Band Perry was preceded by the young Canadian native from Calgary. Lindsay Ell gave us an intimate acoustic show, which allowed us to appreciate her vocal potential and talent on the guitar. A wonderful evening not be missed!

The program was promoted all summer on the network of over 120 radio partners and Big Cactus Country certainly contributed to the success!

I must say that the 2013 musical program was very attractive and the concept of the festival as upscale well received. The country festival was five stars, with its “all inclusive” formula including all the amenities and services with a broad Spanish smile, not to mention live music every night in a tent specially designed for the purpose and much more. Throughout the six-days, courses were offered for country dancing and there was a show of the Country French artist Pierre Lorry every lunchtime. Every evening there was a different concert waiting for us. A top level was achieved under the supervision of talented guitarist and singer Mister Jay,the head of the music program.

Mister Jay!

Tyler Farr, the name probably tells you something? If you are listening to the Big Cactus Country, you should know the title “Crazy Redneck.”

This song is currently in second place on the charts mediabase. If I talk about Tyler, it is because of his first album titled (as is the single) “Redneck Crazy”, released on Columbia Nashville label.

Tyler is best known as a songwriter as he wrote all the songs “Hey Yall” for the rapper Colt Ford, not to mention “She’s Just Like That” for Joe Nichols.

The arsonist piled newspapers at the entrance of Ryman and set them on fire, quickly harming the door. Fortunately, the security service viewed the act on the cameras of Ryman. The police and fire depepartment reacted right away.

Burned Doors

Reassure yourselves. Thanks to the quick intervention of the firemen, the fire was very quickly stopped and there were no injuries. The security service was supported and the arsonist warned in view on 27 August with a$20 000 fine. Nashville without Ryman Auditorium wouldn’t really be Nashville. Doors harmed by the fire were immediately replaced and concerts are going to resume from September 8th.
