On the heels of his three #1, "A Guy Walks into a Bar," "Redneck Crazy," & "Whiskey in my Water", Tyler Farr is singing a decidedly different tune with his new single, "I Should Go to Church Sometime." "I'm not exactly known for walking the straight & narrow," he admits, "but I have a strong conscience & I was taught right from wrong." Tyler heads out on The Devil Don't Sleep Tour with Brantley Gilbert & his label mate Luke Combs.

Lady Antebellum's new HEART BREAK album won't be out until June 9, but fans are in for a surprise several weeks before, thanks to the soundtrack for TV'S new Dirty Dancing remake. For the new TV version, Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley & Dave Haywood cover "Hey Baby," Bruce Channel's #1 hit from 1962. It was one of only 12 tracks included on the original soundtrack for the 1987 film starring Patrick Swayze & Jennifer Grey.

Chris Young is hitting the road with Jason Aldean on the They Don't Know tour. Chris is super excited to get out there for the fans & sing his #1 hits like "Sober Saturday Night," "I'm Comin' Over" & "Think Of You." Chris is also excited to get to spend some time with his buddies Jason & Kane Brown. Chris & Jason have toured together before, & Chris & Kane are not only friends, but Chris has co-written a couple of songs with Kane.

One of the best parts about Luke Combs success & the rise of his smash hit "Hurricane" is Luke's ability to share the experience with his parents. Luke is close with his mum & dad, & he says "my parents are super proud & I'm just happy to make them proud. That's all I kind of set out to do." Mum & Dad Combs are sure to be super proud again when Luke's Life's About to Get Good" will be the lead single from Shania Twain's first new album in 15 years. The single is scheduled for release in June, with the album due out in September.

It's the final album, Adios, by Glen Campbell "Everybody's Talkin'" is about the desire to take a break, when life becomes too much to handle, & head to the ocean to reset. Campbell's version of "Everybody's Talkin'" is a cover. The song was originally written by Fred Neil, who released his version of the track on a self-titled album in 1967. The song rose to popularity, however, after Harry Nilsson recorded it & released it as a single in 1968, in 1969, Nilsson's version was used as the theme song for the movie Midnight Cowboy & hit #6 on the Billboard Hot 100. Nilsson received a Grammys trophy for "Everybody's Talkin'," & the song has since been covered by a number of artists, & been used in movies such as Forrest Gump, Borat & The Hangover Part III.

Have a great week!

Bob Taylor.
