Ash Bowers signs with Stoney Creek

Monday, June 29, 2009 – Singer/songwriter Ash Bowers signed with the new Stoney Creek Record label. Bowers' new single, Stuck, will arrive at radio in July.

"The first time I saw Ash perform live I was completely blown away. His passion for performing was extremely apparent in his stage presence," said CEO/President Benny Brown.

In 2003, Bowers gave up his day job as a John Deere tractor mechanic to hit the road and follow his dream of music. His CD was produced by Buddy Cannon, Kenny Chesney's producer. Bowers wrote seven songs. Struck was written by Billy Montana and Frank Myers and is going for radio adds Aug. 17.

Megan Mullin also is on the label founded by Brown, who started Broken Bow Records as well.

Concert Review: Moorer, Gauthier pull for each other – In their own right, Allison Moorer and Mary Gauthier did not really need the other because each is most capable of headlining. But in one of those geniuses of booking, fans had the chance to see the two in a most enjoyable and alternative setting - a good, old-fashioned guitar pull. That meant that the two were seated in comfortable chairs on... »»»

Nathan Stanley carries on family tradition Young bluegrass artist Nathan Stanley doesn't fall far from the branches of the family tree; he honors the legacy of his grandfather, Dr. Ralph Stanley, by delivering straight ahead traditional bluegrass music, interpreting old classics that have shaped him and his music. At the same time, young Stanley is an original, refusing to sing the old songs in the ways they've been performed before. "If it's been done," he says, "I don't think I'll do it that way."... »»»
