"My So Called Life" - Music Video on CMT!!
Matt Austin grew up in the Detroit downriver area with a guitar-playing father but he didn’t gain interest in playing until his uncle from Texas moved to Michigan. He was inspired first by the sound of the blues guitar greats Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jimi Hendrix. Matt later fell in love with this new age country genre that is growing by leaps and bounds.
In 2013 along with releasing his new EP Matt Austin, was also direct support for Lee Brice, Brantley Gilbert, Uncle Kracker, Aaron Lewis, Josh Gracin, Charlie Worsham, Chase Rice and Jerrod Niemann.
MA has also performed in 2013 to thousands at many of the great country music festivals in Michigan such as 99.5 WYCD’s downtown hoedown and the Faster Horses series at Michigan international speedway.
Growing up in small town MN was the basis for Greg's love of country music.
Eden Valley, a farm community of about 800 people and no stop lights, is where he got his first guitar and wrote his first country song. He grew up on the edge of a main road, railroad track, and a corn field. It's a place where he learned to hunt, fish, play sports, and appreciate music of many genres. It's where he learned about honesty, family, friendship, and team work. All of which come into play in the songs he writes, in his live show and on a daily basis. If he's not out playing or writing country songs, he's in the woods with a bow, on a lake fishing bass, cruising dirt roads in his truck with his buddies, or out listening to area classic country bands.
Influenced by the vinyl record sounds from his father's collection of country greats such as Haggard, Strait, and Cash...Greg found that a strong song and a strong vocal is key to a good career. He was later influenced by the sounds and live shows of more modern day artists like Kenny Chesney, Brooks & Dunn, Tim McGraw, etc. and also the 90's country scene. He has worked hard over the years to develop his skills as a country performer and songwriter. He has been fortunate to have played in the company of many talented MN musicians, and opening shows for talented National acts such as
Jamey Johnson, Little Texas, Emerson Drive, Colt Ford, and Trent Willmon.
Sonia Leigh has exploded onto the Nashville scene with her newest smash single, “Put It In Your Pocket” which debut on Sirius XM Radio, 59, The Highway on July 1st 2014.
Sonia relocated to Nashville October 2012 from her longtime home of Atlanta, Ga., and quickly began captivating Nashville audiences with her own special brand of female attitude modern country.
Her newest single drives you into the very heart of summer time fun, friends, and living life in the moment.
Hannah Bethel grew up on country music and classic rock in the backwoods of Northern Michigan. At a young age, it was apparent that Hannah was a natural entertainer. She sang for anyone who would listen. She loved to make people laugh and think and feel the emotion of the songs. At fourteen she picked up a Squire acoustic guitar that her younger sister had ditched and soon after she was traveling the Upper Midwest, performing original music at fairs, bars, talent shows, coffee houses, shopping malls and country and western shows. Hannah self-released her first record at 17 and the following year she moved to Nashville, Tennessee.
Hannah is an avid writer and co-writer. She has written with some of Nashville’s finest songwriters, from big names to newcomers. One of those newcomers is Momentum Label Group artist, Rachele Lynae. Hannah had her first song cut in 2013 with Rachele’s sophomoric single, “Fishin’ For Something”, which received extensive radio play across the US. Hannah has recently been named one of CMA Close Up’s Who New to Watch in 2014.
Doug Briney began like so many other musicians, singing in church. His first solo was when he was two years old. He continued singing throughout high school and then graduated in 1988 from Pacific Coast Baptist Bible College as a Vocal Music Major. During his college days, Doug had the opportunity to sing with a gospel quartet and travel all over the western half of the USA. He also had the unique opportunity to sing with the San Diego Opera Chorus. After graduating Doug went on and has spent the next 23 years leading worship in churches and pastoring.
Doug's new project "Super Country Cowboy" was released November 5, 2013. With a strong title track that is really a reflection of who Doug is as a person and cowboy this track blends traditional with an edge ready for radio. "I Get To" is a track Doug is extremely proud of and it has been a motto for his family for the past 23 years. Doug chose to cover a Brook's and Dunn classic "Believe" and brings a very raw emotion to the song. This project is truly a snapshot of Doug's life in every song.
Award-winning music biographer Jake Brown returns to store shelves nationwide with a shift from the rock world to the country world with his new book Nashville Songwriter: The Inside Stories Behind Country Music’s Greatest Hits which includes exclusive interviews with country legends Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, and a long list of hit songwriters.
The book features interviews with the writers behind country's greatest hits like Tim McGraw's Live Like You Were Dying, Lady Antebellum's We Owned The Night, Carrie Underwood's Jesus Take The Wheel, and many more.
Songwriters featured, in this 300-plus page book, include Craig Wiseman, Dean Dillon, Bob DiPiero, Bill Anderson, Sonny Curtis, Tom Shapiro, Kelley Lovelace, Rivers Rutherford, Tom T. Hall, Wayne Carson, Chris Dubois, Dallas Davidson, David Lee Murphy, and Freddy Powers.
In addition to these never-before-revealed stories behind the songs, aspiring songwriters will find countless gems of wisdom about the craft and career of songwriting itself.
Jake Brown has written 35 published books since 2001, featuring many authorized collaborations with some of rock’s biggest artists, including 2013 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees Heart (with Ann and Nancy Wilson), living guitar legend Joe Satriani, heavy metal pioneers Motorhead (with Lemmy Kilmister), late hip hop icon Tupac Shakur (with the estate), celebrated Rock drummer Kenny Aronoff, late Funk pioneer Rick James, and the all-star rock producers anthology ‘Behind the Boards’, among many others.
It was April of 2008, and the LoCash Cowboys were doing what they do best--rocking a packed house. They were at Nashville's Wildhorse Saloon, where the two of them--Preston Brust and Chris Lucas--had met a few years earlier. The amped-up crowd was living, screaming proof that they had put the time since then to good use. They had been criss-crossing the country, honing their craft on stages large and small, developing one of the most dynamic live shows in any genre of music. Along the way, they had sold more than 60,000 copies of their homemade CD, earned endorsements from the likes of Budweiser, shared bills with artists including Charlie Daniels and ZZ Top, performed at halftime of NBA and U.S. Olympic team basketball games, and earned television appearances ranging from Tanya Tucker's reality show "Tuckerville" to "Pageant School: Becoming Miss America," writing the theme songs for both.
Jiggley Jones, the project, came about in late 2007. Since then, while developing his new venture, he has worked with industry pros like former Shania Twain bandleader and Nashville based producer Terry Wendt, and LA based producer Chris Tristram, a former bassist for Capitol Records recording artist Marjorie Fair.
Jiggley has had consistent radio airplay overseas in Europe, Asia and Australia, having hundreds of stations a week spin his music for many months straight. His internet radio success has been equally successful gaining and holding Top 5 spots in two separate categories on the Roots Music Report charts. His videos have gained over a quarter of a million views to date and his live performances have taken him from New York, to Philadelphia, to Virginia, and down to Nashville where he performed at BB King’s during the CMA Festival. He’s played the legendary Bitter End in NYC, the fabulous World Café in Wilmington, De. and the renowned South Street region of Philadelphia to mention a few. His song “Baby Blue” from his independent release has also been picked up by one of the premier karaoke brokers.
Country music is a soundtrack of the south. With the artistry of vocalist and songwriter Amanda Lamb, the compass points to Southern California and the sun swept shores of Orange County. Amanda’s new single, “We Were Here,” is an invitation to a coastline drive and an exuberant nod to her West coast roots. Her wistful “Endless Summer” evokes a vivid panorama of rusted Woodies, shivering palm trees, abandoned surfboards and deserted cottages.
Growing up in Newport Beach, humming along to Dixie Chicks and Shania Twain on the radio, Amanda Lamb was entranced by the authenticity of country music. “The stories in these songs sounded real,” she says. When she began her personal musical journey, she recalls her grandmother making a perceptive suggestion. “She said, ‘Why aren't you singing country?’” Recording in Nashville, she realized that her Grandmother had been right. “Country Music feels more comfortable than anything I have ever done,” she says. “It feels like home.”
We're back! After a busy, busy summer, Fred and Marg are back with Lies My Country Told Me and are excited about today's guest, Darryl of DI.
After six years as serving as the voice of democracy, Blog Talk Radio's popular weekly show, "Democracy Interactive" also known as DI, turned of the lights and closed the door. Like clockwork, DI aired on Sundays and with its unique progressive chat community, was one of the best shows BTR offered.

Lies My Country Told Me is thrilled that Darryl, DI's host, has agreed to come on air as today's featured guest. His advocacy for democracy has involved him in many, many projects and campaigns over the years and we all know that his fight for a democratic nation did not stop three months ago, with the airing of his last show.
