NWP welcomes the legend and the man, Charlie Daniels!
From his Dove Award winning gospel albums to his genre-defining Southern rock anthems and his CMA Award-winning country hits, few artists have left a more indelible mark on America’s musical landscape than Charlie Daniels. An outspoken patriot, beloved mentor to young artists and still a road warrior at age 76, Charlie has parlayed his passion for music into a multi-platinum career and a platform to support the military, underprivileged children and others in need. Raised among the longleaf pines of North Carolina, Charlie began his career playing bluegrass music with the Misty Mountain Boys
Each year Charlie also hosts The Charlie Daniels Celebrity Golf Classic & Angelus Concert in Hudson, FL, a benefit for The Angelus, a full-time residential facility and day school program for the severely handicapped. Charlie is also a member of the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Professional Advisory Board and has been a longtime supporter of the T. J. Martell Foundation and its numerous events aiding cancer research. He’s also the headliner every year for the Christmas 4 Kids concert at the Ryman Auditorium, which raises money to provide a happy holiday for needy children. “I have a very unique opportunity because of being in the music community,” Charlie says of using his celebrity status to aid worthy causes. “You try to give back to some extent. I do feel like people should. We should all do as much as we can.” http://www.charliedaniels.com

We've got a great pair of aritst interviews this week, and they certainly contrast as far as musical styles go.
First up, we bring you a conversation with on-the-rise country performer Trinity Bradshaw. A native of Prince Edward Island, Trinity now calls Calgary home and has been garnering a lot of attention and accolades of late. She's performed the Viper Room in LA, the Bluebird in Nashville, and major Canadian country festivals like the Cavendish Beach Music Festival, Big Valley Jamboree, Boots and Hearts, and Calgary Stampede. We'll speak to the Alberta CMA nominee about the year she's had and what's coming up on the horizon.
Then, switching gears, we've got one of Canadian rock's hottest acts, Saskatoon's One Bad Son. Over the past couple of years, the band has had multiple radio hits, toured alongside Buckcherry, Three Days Grace, and Monster Truck, and is currently prepping for an upcoming Fall 2014 release. We'll chat about the progress on that and what fans can expect from the four-piece powerhouse.
Hailing from Tucson, Arizona, Haeley may look like an angel, but there’s more to her than meets the eye. This girl knows how to get down country-style and isn’t afraid to show it. Her new EP Hoot n’ Holler showcases Haeley’s infectious personality with her boot-stompin’ tunes including Boom in the Boondocks and Shakin’ in Your Boots, a vindictive anthem of a girl done wrong. While Haeley has been performing her whole life, her first big break came when she was just 16 when her American Idol Season 9 audition resulted in a spot among the Top 20 finalists. This success gave her the confidence boost she needed to “hit the ground running” in terms of her career. Following Idol, Haeley made the move to Nashville and since then, she has been writing and performing non-stop and has been taking part in several industry events, including performing and signing autographs during the CMA Music Festival and playing regularly at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge in Nashville. Haeley is on her way to becoming country pop’s next darling with her genuine optimism, infectious effervescent personality and enthusiasm for singing that cannot be deterred.
