Kevin Fowler To Entertain Bull Riding Fans And Vince Gill Auctioning Roses For Valentine’s Day
- One of the regulars readers of The 9513, Matt C., was at the Colgate Country Showdown yesterday and gave us the scoop on what happened:
The winner of the 25th Annual Colgate Country Showdown is Shelby, NC native Megan Peeler.
Megan sang Waylon Jennings’ “The Wurlitzer Prize” and an original song entitled “Damsel in Distress.” While there was a lot of talent on stage, Megan was clearly better than the rest and the judges made the right decision.
The program was taped for a screening on GAC at a later date but I’ll post comments sometime tomorrow for those interested.
- C3 Presents, a new company in Austin born out of the merger between two companies and the former president of another, is producing Austin City Limits Music Festival and a new country music festival at Texas Motor Speedway near College Station. The country music festival will take place in October. I can’t seem to find any more information about the festival, so it’ll be interesting to find out what it’s all about.
- Kevin Fowler and bull riding, who thought of that and why didn’t they think of it sooner? From what I know, Fowler is definitely one of the rowdier live performers and will keep the attention of the fans who like bull riding.
Expect some new tunes from Fowler’s upcoming album as well as old favorites such as “Beer, Bait and Ammo,” which the legendary country vocalist George Jones covered on the compilation album “All Gone Fishin’” on Jones’ Bandit Records label.
- I finally caught an episode of Nashville Star and was pretty much underwhelmed by everyone. The only person that came close to peaking my interest was Angela Hacker. I liked the smoky, raspy sound of her voice. Maybe I just caught it on a bad night.
- The 2007 Bloggie nominations are available for voting on, unfortunately there are no country blogs represented in the music category.
- Forbes is reporting that three country stars made it to the Top 10 of the biggest moneymakers in music. Tim McGraw & Faith Hill (2), Rascal Flatts (3), and Kenny Chesney (6) all appear on the list.
- I think this is a brilliant marketing move. In order to promote his newest album, These Days, Gill is auctioning off a dozen roses and a signed Valentine’s card on eBay. It’ll set you back a pretty penny if you want to win, the bidding is already up to $455 and it doesn’t stop until January 30. Although there’s only going to be one winning bid, it’s got tremendous potential to create some buzz about his album.
