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!

Big Cactus Country Radio Show!!! The best of American Country presented by Johnny Da Piedade and Alison Hebert! The BCC is a syndicated radio Show presented by Johnny Da Piedade and Alison Hebert broadcast weekly more than 250 times. The BCC network is 120 affiliated radio stations in France, Reunion Island, St-Pierre-et-Miquelon, Belgium, Switzerland, Quebec and more.

In a few weeks it will be New Year’s and the heart of Nashville’s Music City will be ignited by an explosion of color with the fireworks season sky!

The streets will be crowded, invaded by the crowd coming especially to live an exceptional moment in front of the huge stage of the “Music City New Year’s Eve Bash On Broadway”, which as the name suggests, takes place downtown on the night of December 31, 2013 – January 1, 2014.

To end the year on a beautiful note, three new entrants have been brought in: Brett Eldredge, The Kopecky Family Band, the group Striking Matches, and a little Southern rock from Blackberry Smoke.

I wish to inform you that Blackberry Smoke is preparing a European tour that will pass through France. They will be the Nouveau Casino in Paris March 15, 2014! Now, back to the celebration of New Year’s Day in Nashville with headliner Mister Hank Williams, Jr!

Hank Williams, Jr.

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.
