Press Release

Lee Ann Womack - Texas native Lee Ann Womack is a Grammy-winning vocalist whose pure voice and successful releases reminded contemporary country music fans of the genre’s roots. After moving to Nashville to attend Belmont University, she signed to Decca Records and, in 1997, released her self–titled debut which reached the Top Ten. Later recordings like “Call Me Crazy,” “I Hope You Dance” and the 2005 Country Music Association’s Album of the Year “There’s More Where That Came From” secured her place in mainstream country. The much-awarded singer was featured at the Concert for the Nobel Peace Prize, has performed for multiple Presidents, and recorded award-wining duets with Willie Nelson and George Strait. Her latest release, “The Way I’m Livin’,” is a more rootsier effort that includes songs by Hayes Carll, Mindy Smith, Buddy Miller and Neil Young. 

 

Mac McAnally - As a player, Mac McAnally has won an unprecedented seven consecutive Musician of the Year awards from the Country Music Association. As a songwriter, his four-decade long career includes numerous hits for artists including Alabama, Jimmy Buffet, Ricky Van Shelton and Steve Wariner. As a producer, the Mississippi native has helped shape albums for artists as diverse as Ricky Skaggs, Sawyer Brown, Jimmy Buffett, and Chris LeDoux. In his teens, McAnally dropped out of school and hired on at the legendary Muscle Shoals studio. He went on to play for years in Jimmy Buffett's Coral Reefer Band and, in 2009, finally scored his first No. 1 as an artist with a collaboration with Kenny Chesney. McAnally played on Lee Ann Womack’s new release, “The Way I’m Livin’.”

 

Angaleena Presley - A native of Beauty, KY, and member of  the Pistol Annies (along with Miranda Lambert and Ashley Monroe), Angaleena Presley has the makings of an old-school country music star. Thanks to her parents, she grew up listening to Carole King and Janis Joplin, as well as Ralph Stanley, Merle Haggard, and Bill Monroe. But she also was a fan of the Indigo Girls - and sometimes skipped school and drove to Loretta Lynn’s home at Butcher Holler to seek inspiration. Presley’s solo debut, “American Middle Class,” is not only a revealing memoir of her colorful life but also a powerful and probing look at contemporary rural American life - prescription pills and all. Her co-writers include Matraca Berg and Lori McKenna while singers including Patty Loveless and Emily Saliers (Indigo Girls) contributed backing vocals. 

 

Charlie Worsham - Raised in the north Mississippi hills, Charlie Worsham was proficient on most stringed instruments at a young age and, at 10, played banjo onstage with bluegrass Jimmy Martin at the Ryman Auditorium. He made his Grand Ole Opry debut with Mike Snyder at age 12. Worsham went on to earn a degree in music production and engineering at the Berklee School of Music in Boston. After moving to Nashville, he landed a writing deal with a publishing company and before long was playing with the Nashville band KingBilly. He toured with Taylor Swift in 2011 and has opened for Miranda Lambert and Wade Bowen. Worsham released his debut single, "Could It Be," on Warner Bros. Records in 2013. The album, “Rubberband,” featured cameos by Vince Gill and Marty Stuart. In 2014, he appeared in an episode of the FOX TV Series “Bones” which also featured his song "Love Don't Die Easy."

 

Kristin Andreasssen - Having toured the world with the string band Uncle Earl, the “folk noir” singing trio Sometymes Why and the renowned traditional percussive dance ensemble Footworks, Kristin Andreassen has now set off on her own. Her solo debut, “Kiss Me Hello,” kicked off with the John Lennon Song Contest Grand Prize-winning “Crayola Doesn’t Make a Color for Your Eyes.” Andreassen has recorded albums of original and traditional music with producers John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), Dirk Powell (Cold Mountain, Joan Baez) and Mark Schatz (Nickel Creek). Her current projects include an upcoming solo release, “Gondolier,” and “The Bright Siders: Music for Kids,” a collaboration with child psychiatrist Dr. Kari Groff. The latter’s collection of songs and skits use humor and music to help kids and families have meaningful conversations about emotions. Andreassen is also the co-founder of Miles of Music Camp, an all-ages music camp with weekend programs in Brooklyn & Boston as well as a week-long summer intensive on an island in New Hampshire’s Lake Winnipesaukee.
