Chase Rice Roars Across the U.S. with “Lambs and Lions Tour”

Chase Rice knows who he is as artist; and who he’s not. And he is set to release a new album, Lambs & Lions, with a new label partner BBR Music Group/BMG, and kick off a coast-to-coast “Lambs and Lions Tour” that strikes at the heart of what the industry outlier believes about reaching fans and making music that reflects more than the just the bravado that garnered the North Carolina native national acclaim. With the confidence that comes from writing and playing from a deeper emotional well, Rice is launching the “Lambs and Lions Tour” in Boone, N.C. at Appalachian State University. It ends two continents, three countries, six months, five support acts and 30 tour dates later at Atlanta’s Buckhead Theatre. In between, he is playing gritty clubs, festivals, arenas, and some of the most revered music venues in the country. Unapologetic and fiercely independent, Rice is clearly comfortable in his own skin and on any stage.

As stated in an article by Marissa Moss in Rolling Stone, his current musical path “is a chance for him to move past bro-dom, experiment with new sounds and textures, and discuss much more than just the party. It’s about finding faith in relationships and learning how to persevere when things get a little tough, and is also an emotional dip into the world of an artist who, like many of his peers, was dismissed before he could reach a lot deeper.” Rice has been one of country music’s most exciting figures since arriving in Nashville. He co-wrote Florida Georgia Line’s mega hit Diamond certified “Cruise” and his 2014 major label debut album, Ignite the Night, opened at No. 1 and yielded two Top 5 hits with “Ready Set Roll” and “Gonna Wanna Tonight,” in addition to more than 900,000 in album sales. Rice initially released “Ready Set Roll” through his own Dack Janiels label and later partnered with Columbia Nashville for a wider release, though he never gave up control of his music to sign a long-term deal.

He signed with BBR Music Group because of the label’s proven track record of fostering an independent spirit while still helping deliver hits for its acts including Jason Aldean, Dustin Lynch, Randy Houser, and Granger Smith, all artists who began as independents and continue to chart their own paths with millions of songs and albums sold.

The 31-year-old singer-songwriter has had eclectic life for inspiration, playing football at the University of North Carolina, serving as a NASCAR pit crew member, even a role on a season of Survivor, all before finding success as a singer/songwriter/entertainer. His unrivaled live show has led to numerous sold out tours, a slot performing on Kenny Chesney’s stadium tour stops in 2015, and to ESPN’s Marty Smith noting in that sense, “Rice is an anomaly.”

Florida Georgia Line & Backstreet Boys Collab “GOD, YOUR MAMA, AND ME” went #1

Every Single From DIG YOUR ROOTS Album is No. 1

Superstar duo FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE have just scored their 13th career No. 1 song, peaking at the top of both Billboard and Country Aircheck/Mediabase Country Airplay charts this week with their heartfelt ballad, “God, Your Mama, And Me” (featuring Backstreet Boys).

“Wow. Country radio, you have made this the best Monday morning,” shares Tyler Hubbard. “Finding out that ‘God, Your Mama, And Me’ went #1 is surreal – really cool to be a part of Backstreet Boys’ first Country #1!”

Brian Kelley adds, “If you told me growing up that I would share a #1 song with BSB, I would have told you to get outta here! Dream big, work hard, surround yourself with an amazing team and anything is possible.”

Hitmakers Josh Kear, Hillary Lindsey and Gordie Sampson wrote “God, Your Mama, And Me,” a lush sonic tapestry of unconditional love and spirituality, which elevated to instant-classic status with the inclusion of Backstreet Boys. Harmonizing alongside FGL, this is the first time the ‘90s Pop idols have contributed to a Country single.

“We’re fans of each other and that’s one of the reasons why the song works so well,” says Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter. “I’m glad it’s with these boys that we just reached #1 at Country radio for the first time.”

The PLATINUM-certified track marks another highpoint in FGL’s unprecedented career, as all three singles from the duo’s DIG YOUR ROOTS album (BMLG Records) have now reached the top spot. Their consecutive trifecta of No. 1s also includes mega hits “H.O.L.Y.” and “May We All” (featuring Tim McGraw).

News of their latest chart-topping success comes just as Hubbard and Kelley launch into yet another summer at the top of their game. In early June, the award-winning pair kicked off THE SMOOTH TOUR 2017, a genre-defying concert experience that features Hip-hop icon Nelly and breakout Country talent Chris Lane, as well as Ryan Hurd, Morgan Wallen and Russell Dickerson on select dates. Backstreet Boys will join the run for FGL’s first-ever headline stadium shows in Boston (7/7), Minneapolis (7/29) and Chicago (8/12) as the tour continues to draw roaring SOLD-OUT crowds.

FGL made another crossover statement at the 2017 CMT Music Awards, where they took home the award for Duo Video of the Year (“H.O.L.Y.”) and performed with Electro-pop sensation The Chainsmokers. And days later at the 2017 CMA Music Festival, they closed out the all-star Saturday night lineup at Nashville’s massive Nissan Stadium by performing for upwards of 70,000 fans. Tune-in for the highlights on “CMA Fest,” The Music Event of Summer, airing Wednesday, August 16 at 8:00P ET on the ABC television network.

Meanwhile, FGL just opened the doors to their first restaurant and entertainment destination, pulling fans even deeper into their anything-goes world of epic good times. Called FGL HOUSE, the venue offers four-stories of vibey music, food, and fun in the heart of downtown Nashville’s Lower Broadway.

THE SMOOTH TOUR 2017 rolls on through summer and into fall, with coast-to-coast dates scheduled through October 7 in Portland, Oregon.

Tyler Joseph Talks Twenty One Pilots New Album, “I know what we’re making is for a group of people out there that want to hear it”

Twenty One Pilots without a doubt had massive year’s in 2015/2016, with their album Blurryface topping the charts for weeks at a time. With 6 smash hit singles flooding the radio from the album including “Fairly Local,” “Tear in my Heart,” “Stressed Out,” “Lane Boy,” “Ride,” and “HeavyDirtySoul, this record cycle has come to a close with their stent of shows in their home state of Ohio with their #TourDeColumbus. Now it is time for new music, Tyler Joseph recently chatted with Alternative Press’s Editor In Chief Jason Pettigrew about how the industry wanted to turn them into something they aren’t. Toward the end of their conversation, Joseph opened up on some new Twenty One Pilots music. Talking about their fifth studio album which, we are assuming is in the works as we speak.


Read Tyler Joseph’s Statement below:

“Looking forward to the next record, I feel a greater sense of freedom and less pressure. I felt a lot more pressure going from Vessel to Blurryface. It didn’t happen the way [industry people] talk about it. There wasn’t a massive single [from Vessel] that projected into the pop charts. What we did was still different from their formula. Because it got beyond a certain point, I feel so much confidence that I can look at those people and look at myself and say, ‘I know what we’re making is for a group of people out there that want to hear it.’ That’s all the confidence I need.

I’m looking forward to what an even more confident Twenty One Pilots record sounds like. I’m not saying the songs will sound confident, I’m saying the song structures will. Lyrically, the songs will always be the same reason why I started writing them in the first place—to say things that I felt I couldn’t say in a regular context.”

Even More New Slang Terms Added To The Oxford English Dictionary

(PCM) Each year the Oxford English Dictionary is updated with new and accepted words, some of which happen to be what we would define as “slang”. One word in particular that made the cut this year is “woke”. The slang term has been around for quite some time as one of its’ earliest references was used as the title of a event that took place in Harlem, NY during the 1920’s called the “Stay Woke Ball” which was an event that ran all night long from 5am to 5pm the next day. “Woke” was later used in the 1960’s to describe someone who was “aware or well-informed”.

In more recent years “woke” surfaced once again being used in support of the Black Lives Matter movement and to support social justice and activist movements. “Woke” has now been officially added to the Oxford English Dictionary and it’s definition is as follows:  “woke, adjective: Originally: well-informed, up-to-date. Now chiefly: alert to racial or social discrimination and injustice; frequently in stay woke.”

Joining “woke” and making the cut for this year’s addition of new words is “swimmer” mean to reference male sperm, “post-truth” meaning facts that matter less than perception and “unclick” which means exactly what you would assume, as in not clicking on something.

Anonymous Claims NASA Is About To Reveal Details About Alien Life

(PCM) A new YouTube video posted by the hacking group Anonymous claims that NASA has concrete proof of alien life and will soon be releasing the truth to the general public. In the 12-minute video released by Anonymous they explain that NASA has already been in contact with the intelligent extraterrestrial civilizations and this proves the theory that intelligent life forms exist on planets other than Earth.

Anonymous goes on the further explain that NASA has known the information for quite some time, however they are trying to determine the best time to release the information to the public to avoid mass hysteria and chaos. While many still continue to dismiss Anonymous’s claims as “conspiracy theory”, NASA has been dropping their own batch of hints about the possibility of intelligent life on other planets.

They have recently revealed that they have discovered several other Earth-like planets that could support organic life forms and have been shifting the focus of many of their mission to the study of astrobiology. The new information obtained by Anonymous is purely speculative at this point in the game, however we can certainly see where they would reach a lot of these conclusions based upon NASA’s recent work and the small hints that have been dropped over the years.

We still feel it will be a good number of years before NASA ever fully discloses the truth about intelligent life on other planets, but it is rather egotistical of us to believe that we are the only planet in the entire galaxy that could possibly have intelligent life forms. For now we will just have to wait and see, but don’t you think this news for Anonymous comes just a little too close to “Independence Day” to be a coincidence. Just remember … the truth is out there!  You can check out Anonymous’s video below … why do they always have to make them so darn creepy! The Guy Fawkes mask is just unnerving!

Barb Will See Justice In ‘Stranger Things’ Season Two!

(AOTN) Being huge fans of the Netflix original series “Stranger Things” and of course being a member of “Team Barb” we, of course, are overjoyed at the news that our beloved character will be seeing some kind of justice when season two of the hit series returns this October.

No, this does not mean that Barb will be coming back from the dead, but rest assured her character has not been forgotten. Many fans were angered that Barb’s mysteriously disappearance and untimely death in the series was for the most part ignored by the main characters in the series. They even started the social media hashtag #JusticeForBarb!

The show was stolen by Eleven, played by the incredible Millie Bobby Brown, and the search for Will in season one, however Barb, played by actress Shannon Purser, stole our hearts and we definitely feel the character deserves some kind of closure in the upcoming season.

Actor David Harbour, who plays police chief Jim Hopper in the series, spoke with TV Guide and commented on the Justice For Barb movement saying “Barb is clearly dead. But as a result, I think, of some of the fandom and also as a result of what we want to explore, justice for Barb is a big thing in Season two. Barb was not given the justice she deserved in Season 1 because we were focused on Will and saving a child, but so we’ve realized from the fans that Barb is important, and so we are going to treat her with the respect that she deserves.”

This news should be satisfying to fans and we will just have to wait and see what the Duffer Brothers will do to give the character her due closure. Now it’s time to wait on the edge of our seats until season two of “Stranger Things” begins streaming on October 31st.

Doctors Warn About Dangers Of Using Coca-Cola As Self-Tanner

(PCM) One of the latest summer beauty trends that is making the rounds is using Coca-Cola (yes, the beverage) as a self-tanner. People will seemingly try just about anything when attempting to get a nice golden glow, however doctors warn that using Coca-Cola as a self-tanning oil can pose some serious health risks and cause permanent damage to your skin.

Advocates of the Coca-Cola self-tanning method claim that the soda can enhance your caramel skin tones, giving your skin a nice even bronzing. While this may be the case, doctors warn that many of the other chemicals contained in Coca-Cola can cause a lot of breakage and irreversible damage to the skin when they are exposed to direct sunlight.

When speaking with Allure Magazine ,Joshua Zeichner, director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City claims, “Applying Coca-Cola to the skin may lead to a temporary darkening or staining of the skin, but because sodas are acidic, it may exfoliate dead cells, enhancing the ability of UV light to penetrate into the skin. Ultimately, this may increase your risk of a sunburn.”

The use of Coca-Cola as a self-tanner was really big in the UK, so much so that the Coca-Cola website in the UK even made a post about it in their FAQ section saying they would not recommend using the product as a self-tanner, as there is no sun protection factor in it, as it is a drink.

There you have it folk! Coca-Cola as a self-tanner is just a bad idea! Stay safe and enjoy it as a beverage (like it was intended) instead!
