McClymonts open for Aldean tour

Friday, August 27, 2010 – Aussie group The McClymonts will open dates this fall opening for Jason Aldean. The sisters recently released their debut album "Chaos and Bright Lights" in the U.S. on Executive Music Group.

"We love the fans here in the US; they make us feel so at home," the group said in a statement. "When we got the call from our team that Jason had extended us an invitation to tour with him, we did a little jig, in other words, we were elated and honored to tour with one of country music's hottest acts," they continued.

Already certified gold in their native Australia, the trio of sisters - Brooke, Sam and Mollie - worked with some of Nashville's musicians and hit record producer Adam Anders (music producer for Fox TV's "Glee," Shania Twain, Hannah Montana, and Nick Jonas) in co-writing all 12-tracks on "Chaos and Bright Lights."

The group walked away with four CMAA (Country Music Association of Australia) awards including "Best New Talent" and have received the "Group Of The Year" honor at the Golden Guitar Awards three years in a row. Earlier this year, the single Finally Over Blue tipped The Eagles chart-topping 10-month run off the Australian radio airplay charts.

CD reviews for The McClymonts

Wrapped Up Good
If we were living on Australia time, this second album from the McClymont sisters-three would already be old news. It came out there in January 2010, snapping up awards in the process. Of course, planning American invasions takes time. For this outing they brought in assistants with downright gaudy success - a producer with a mountain of (mostly Disney teen pop) success and a Taylor Swift MVP (producer Nathan Chapman). While locking in likeability up to a point, the risk any artist runs with »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Stapleton places trust in power of song – Chris Stapleton's unlikely mainstream country popularity has graduated the scruffy singer/songwriter from large theaters to the hockey stadiums, and one had to wonder how much this audience growth would affect his performing style. If tonight is any indicator, though, it hasn't changed much. His wife Morgane was absent, as she's home... »»»
Concert Review: It's no wonder that 10 String Symphony stays busy – To say that Rachel Baiman has been busy might be an understatement. Last year, she released the very fine "Shame" CD and toured behind that. Just last month, she and musical collaborator Christian Sedelmyer put out their third album, "Generation Frustration," under the moniker 10 String Symphony. The two were on an ultra-short tour... »»»

Folk Soul Revival CD review - Folk Soul Revival
Folk Soul Revival has built a reputation for wild energetic live shows. This recording proves they can do well in the studio environment too. The band now makes their home in Bristol, Tenn., the birthplace of country. Make no mistake, FSR has already arrived, but they've had to deal with shifting personnel. »»»
