McCurdy sings for Generation Love
Tuesday, April 12, 2011
– Jennette McCurdy, star of Nickelodeon's iCarly, released a single, Generation Love,
to country radio Monday.
McCurdy has engaged in a multi-week cross country mall tour, Generation Love For St. Jude, raising money for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. McCurdy has made it her personal mission to raise $100,000 for St. Jude.
"When I visited St. Jude a few months back, I was so impressed to find out how above and beyond they go to provide care for the children treated at the facility," said McCurdy. "The hospital pays for the patient's family's travel and lodging expenses, and most importantly, St Jude doesn't turn any child away, regardless of the situation at hand."
The song was produced by Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts and is available for purchase at digital retailers. The single will appear on McCurdy's debut country album in stores this fall.

Concert Review: For Doug Seegers, no pinching needed

If looking for opposites of what passes for a country musician these days, Seegers would probably just about be the top pick. Yes, he lives in Nashville, but he just retired after... »»»
Concert Review: Cynics be damned, Carter girl endures
Cynical naysayers without a clue would aim their vitriol at Carlene Carter. Yes, she is one of the progeny of the Carter family, the first family of country music. And she is quite proud of it.
So much so that after watching Maybelle Carter perform with her sisters and being the daughter of June Carter Cash (not to mention Johnny Cash's... »»»

Taking a second look at the two-album deal he had recently signed with the Rounder/Concord group, and then at his busy upcoming touring schedule, Jerry Douglas suddenly realized he didn't have a lot of time to waste. The first album, "Three Bells," a collaboration with fellow resophonic guitar (aka "Dobro") titans Rob Ickes of Blue Highway and the late Mike Auldridge was pretty much ready to go, the sessions having been completed shortly before Auldridge's passing in December 2012 following a lengthy struggle with cancer.... »»»
