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 BCC network is 120 affiliated radio stations in France, Reunion Island, St-Pierre-et-Miquelon, Belgium, Switzerland, Quebec and more.

The weekend of the 4th, 5th and 6th July Team News Nashville returned to Tours for the occasion of the great American Tours Festival.

During these three days, many people attended because of the 100% American program and because of the very attractive price. There were really a large number of visitors!

Something for everyone whatever, fans rock’n’roll, Bikers, Cowboys Rodeo, or fans of good country music, thanks to the famous Canadian Country Music Night, held as every year by Mr. Franck Boucheraud!

For the fourth consecutive year The Big Cactus Country Radio Show was the official partner of the Canadian Country Music Night, so once again, Johnny Da Piedade was the facilitator who had the pleasure and the honor to present Adam Gregory and Jake Mathews.

I remind you that these two songwriters, musicians and performers, are both real stars Country to Canada and each has a different style, which brought some diversity and to the program as seen by Franck, the organizer, attracting a wider audience. But still, pure Country.

The talented, young 28 year old, friendly Adam Gregory had the honor of opening the show. Adam gave an excellent performance, with a mix of pop and country music including (here and there) a touch of rock – such as the superb cover of a classic Bruce Springsteen song and another from the repertoire of Brian Adams,

which immediately affected the audience of connoisseurs, and rightly so, because two of the musicians were also part of the group who recently accompanied the Bryan Adams tour … Adam Gregory, not forgetting his own compositions, often hits in Canada, and known in France, played to an audience responding positively.

In the second part, Jake Mathews offered a more traditional show to a different audience, this time consisting of mainly country purists and more knowledgeable fans. So we were treated to a beautiful collection of superb Country hymns, including some beautiful rearrangements of classic cowboy Alan Jackson or King George Strait not to mention Dwight Yoakam a real treat!

Jake Mathews put the icing on the cake, and even graced us with a wealth of detail about his career in French. Side surprises – we were spoiled with the arrival on scene of the very young Raffi, a gifted pianist and singer only 12 years who came to sing “Let Your Love Flow” a hit of the Bellamy Brothers. It was a total success for Jake Mathews and a Country show which was very exciting for fans of the genre!

We note that the superb delivery of the little prodigy Raffi literally ignited the audience. And it was still young Raffi who had the privilege of accompanying on piano, with other French musicians, the highly awaited and legendary Wanda Jackson!

Raffi!

Raffi!

From her 76 years, Wanda brought us a very varied show, mixing country and her greatest rock’n’roll hits. A memorable concert punctuated again crispy and authentic stories between songs, but this time in VO! This is a great success for American Tours Festival and its organizers. All lovers of America and its music, whether or Country Rock’n’Roll parties are absolutely thrilled! Rendezvous is already for next year for the 2015 edition of the Canadian Country Music Night at the American Festival Tours.

The country pop trio Lady A, that is, Lady Antebellum, reappears this week on American country radio airwaves with a new single called “Bartender”

which is to be found on their fifth album coming soon! “Bartender” has nothing original and nothing country because suprisingly it brings the two previous singles “Downtown” and “Compass”! Lady A is confined more and more to a style that combines all the elements of music trends today, that is say tasteless pop, and the opposite of country music.

Held from March 14 to 16 in Dublin, Ireland and also in London in the UK, the C2C (Country To Country), arrived in Europe for the second consecutive year!

The country stars who have made the trip to Dublin are big: Dierks Bentley, the female trio, Dixie Chicks, the great Zac Brown Band, the pop country trio Rascal Flatts, Cowboy Chris Young, the manic and guitar virtuoso Brad Paisley and the surprise guest was the pop country trio The Band Perry! On this occasion the News from Nashville team were welcomed in the City of Dublin in Ireland to attend this mega show. It was fantastic and tailored to the beautiful O2 containing 14000 places and somd out both nights!

Friday night, Dierks Bentley opened the festivities with a fairly classical repertoire. We were able to enjoy all the best tracks. So we enjoyed a Dierks Bentley performance. The evening continued with the arrival on scene of the female trio, The Dixie Chicks. Obviously the Irish public loved and knew the lyrics of all their songs, even the rock and the unexpected cover of Miley Cyrus. Headining the show on Friday: ZBB otherwise Zac Brown Band!

Zac Brown began by taking the front of the stage and thanking the audience for making the financial effort, despite the crisis, coming to C2C and saying he was very honored to be here in Europe. This talented group showed a high color mixture of Country and Southern Rock, the hard rock of Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” and a great surprise medley title Uncaged , Kashmire of Led Zeppelin and the Mega Hit of the Charlie Daniels Band “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” – the group appeared dressed as skeletons to finish the show!

Chris Young

The artist who opened Saturday was Cowboy Chris Young giving a superb performance with his professionalism and his powerful voice that has had its effect on the Irish public. The Rascal Flatts followed. It as a very good concert with beautiful vocal harmonies and again a mix of rock and pop country, the audience really loved them. Then there was the surprise guest who appeared in the form of a trio, The Band Perry with their country rock sound, always full of energy, perhaps too much because the singer Kimberly Perry jumped and ran around from one end to the other of the great stage of the O2 Dublin tending to shout rather than actually sing, too bad.

The Band Perry

But the best is yet to come up with the headline that alone was worth the trip, Mister Brad Paisley! We were able to attend a very different show from what we had seen previously in London and even Nashville.

Brad arrived in Europe with all his paraphernalia of video material, full of visual effects, lasers and very professional technical giving his show a dramatic side, but also with a lot of humor, jokes, funny video clips including a goat as a vocalist who brought much laughter to the Irish public, really fun!

Mr. Kyle Young, director of the Country Music Hall Of Fame And Museum Nashville has chosen artist Miranda Lambert as the main subject for his new exhibition which will take place May du16 to 9 November 2014.

Miranda is a star that has a lot of personality. She is one of the most popular country artists and most popular stars with today’s public. Thanks to her dynamism and vocal power, she triggers a lot of emotions through her songs which are hard or soft. The Texan Miranda Lambert exhibit at the Country Music Hall Of Fame And Museum in Nashville will last for 7 months: her dresses, costumes, her awards won at the CMA ceremonies, Grammys, ACM, ACA’s – in short enough to fill a museum.

Miranda Lambert continued to climb the ladder in the U.S. country charts with her new unreleased single “Automatic” a track from a new album to be released soon. If you are passing through the Music City, Nashville, do not miss it out!

At a time when the Music City, Nashville, seems to have lost the sense of things with country becoming very pop or rock, Texans want to defend true country music according to the dictionary definition.

Wyndham Garden Hotel and Woodward Conference Center

Same thing is for true rock’n’roll which disappeared, the “Honky Tonk” sound and “Western Swing” which is increasingly rare even in the U.S.! This week in the City of Austin, Texas is the place of the first edition of the Ameripolitan Music Awards in the prestigious Wyndham Garden Hotel and Woodward Conference Center. The purpose of this new event is to show the world what real country music is and to restore its true value.

By definition, country music is the harmony between musical creativity and stories – so,gs tell the stories. All songs must maintain traditional instrumentation.

For example, the “Honky Tonk”, must be dancing like a waltz, and that the words be varied, often with patriotic themes, but they speak of love and life. Ditto for the Western Swing , with lyrics mostly based on life, and of course, dancing, as has it has been with the group Asleep At The Wheel Group!

Asleep At The Wheel

Asleep At The Wheel

The Outlaw style is the archetype of the true country, rhythm and rock like that of the great Waylon Jennings his wife, Jessie Colter – and do not forget Willie Nelson. On rockabilly, dance can ensconce the tempos and the song lyrics are simple.

Rockabilly’s favorite subject, of course, is cars, but also dating. These were themes of the songs of legends: Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis and many others! The ceremony will place (like all great evenings) with entertainment and prizes awarded to the best artists of Rockabilly or Country.
