Jana Kramer currently has a top five Country single “Why Ya Wanna” and a top five album. She has starred on the hit TV series One Tree Hill and has had roles on many others including Entourage, Friday Night Lights, and the re-make of Beverly Hills 90210. Jana is no stranger to the bright lights with her impressive string of movie and television roles, but she credits her recent break into the music industry as her most important accomplishment to date.“I love acting, but my heart and soul is in singing. I’ve been terrified to pursue this dream because it’s so personal to me. If someone tells me they don’t like my voice, it’s a lot harder of a hit to take,” said Jana. “This is what I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve wanted to do music my entire life.Growing up in Michigan, Jana is no stranger to the rich history of country music, crediting one of her favorite memories to baking cookies with her grandmother while listening to Patsy Cline. These little moments are one of the many reasons why Jana hopes to share her music with others.And she’s doing just that as the singer-songwriter is lighting up country music with her emotionally moving songs and sweet, country vocals, selling over 150,000 digital singles in the first six months. All eyes are on Jana as she boldly graces country music with a fresh, new sound and powerful new music.

“Country music is in my blood. I love country music because it tells a story and I have a lot of stories to tell.”

Southside of the Tracks is a home-grown southern rock band, whose members are rooted in country, rock, and blues, and have accordingly combined those roots to create a modern country-rock sound that has captivated the hearts and souls all of those they’ve played before.Southside of the Tracks has already achieved considerable local success playing many of Georgia’s most esteemed stages .Southside of the Tracks performs over a dozen very popular original tunes along with their plethora of multi-genre cover songs that are all crowd-pleasers. A local Atlanta radio station, 94.9 The Bull, has called Southside of the Tracks; “The band that’s taking the Southeast by storm,” and that certainly seems to be the case. Being a relatively new force to be reckoned with in the southeastern music scene.

 

The Shuggah Piescombine bone-chilling family harmonies, heartfelt – honest lyrics and genuine musicianship. The result is a stripped-down organic sound that leaves the listener wondering where The Shuggah Pies have been all their lives. This trifecta of talent truly makes The Shuggah Pies a force to be reckoned with. They have called Nashville home for the past six years, devoting that time honing their craft and creating a fresh, true to themselves sound. These sister’s have spent the better part of their lives singing and performing together and there is truly no comparison. Get ready for The Shuggah Pies!

Cry With Us! Puddles Pity Party in Orlando

Ange Alex

I owe him a poem:

Here’s a story of a sad clown who one night in February was traveling through O-town. 

He brought a suitcase and a lot of gum, he brought music and videos and tons of fun.

He sang high but mostly he sang low, and he put of one hell of a good show.

He gave a bearded guy a cupcake and danced with a lady, a wolf he would make

There is no doubt he is a boss sir, he even got love from Kevin Costner.

Fans filled the plaza for a night of delight as the 7 foot clown gave us some real insight.

He sang Bowie and Queen and even some Who, also Cash, Lorde and “Let it go” too

Videos played of pets and babies crying, also beautiful artwork and people smiling.

Last night Orlando was anything but mad as we showed much love for a clown that is sad.

Ok, I’d cry too after that poem. Here’s some more info:

If you haven’t been to see a Puddles Pity Party show, you are missing out. 

The show had me smiling and laughing so hard my stomach hurt, but I was also moved so many times by the range of Puddles voice. True entertainment never gets old and I have a feeling he is going to last forever.

I loved the interaction he had with the crowd. He pulled numerous people up to help him on stage and all of them were good sports, one man even singing the entire song, “All by myself” karaoke style! The show was so well thought out and planned but with room for some hilarious improv. Especially at the end when he pulled the 3 fans from the audience dressed like clowns. At the end of them performing together, Puddles suddenly remembers that he is scared of clowns! Genius! 

Hands down one of the best performances I’ve seen in years.
