{"key":"5025","name":"Lady Antebellum","bio":"Lady Antebellum is a country group formed in Nashville, Tennessee in 2006. The trio is composed of Charles Kelley (lead and background vocals), Dave Haywood (background vocals, guitar, piano, mandolin) and Hillary Scott (lead and background vocals). Scott is the daughter of country music singer Linda Davis, and Charles Kelley is the brother of pop artist Josh Kelley. It was these family connections and music industry ties that helped launch the band. Kelley moved to Nashville in mid-2005 from Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where he had been working construction with his brother John. Trying to become a successful solo country artist, Kelley convinced his old middle-school classmate, Haywood, to move to Nashville from Georgia in 2006 so they could write music together. Shortly thereafter, Scott recognized Kelley from MySpace, and they started to talk at a Nashville music club. Kelley later invited Scott to join him and Haywood in the new group, which assumed the name Lady Antebellum. The name Antebellum comes from when the group were photographing \"antebellum\" homes. The antebellum ('pre-war') architectural style describes the large plantation homes in the American South. While photographing the houses one of the group said that there's a great band name in there, and they adopted the Lady Antebellum name shortly after. The trio then began performing at local venues in Nashville before being signed in July 2007 to a recording contract with Capitol Records Nashville. In an interview with Sirius Satellite Radio, Scott claimed she was rejected from the hit show American Idol two times, not even making it past the first round.Shortly after the trio signed to the label, adult contemporary artist Jim Brickman chose Lady Antebellum to sing on his 2007 single Never Alone, which reached #14 on the Billboard adult contemporary charts. In mid-2007, Lady Antebellum also wrote a song for the MTV reality television series The Hills.Their solo debut single Love Don't Live Here was released in September of 2007, with a music video for the song following in December. This song was the lead-off single to the band's self-titled debut album. Released on April 15, 2008, Lady Antebellum was produced by Paul Worley and Victoria Shaw, a Nashville songwriter and former solo artist. Love Don't Live Here reached #3 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. The album itself was the first album by a new duo or group to debut at Number One on the Billboard Top Country Albums charts.A second single, Lookin' for a Good Time, was issued in June 2008 and peaked at #11 in December. In addition, Lady Antebellum was signed as an opening act on Martina McBride's \"Waking Up Laughing Tour\" in 2008. Lady Antebellum also contributed the song I Was Here to the AT&T Team USA Soundtrack, a song which peaked at #24 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 based on downloads. In December 2008, their rendition of Baby, It's Cold Outside peaked at #3 on the same chart. Their third official single, I Run to You, was released in January 2009. It eventually became the trio's first Number One in July 2009.On October 7, 2009 their debut album was certified platinum by the RIAA for shipments of one million copies in the United States.In August 2009, the group released their fourth single, Need You Now, the lead-off single and title track to their second studio album. It debuted at #50 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and became their second Number One hit on the charts for the week of November 28, 2009. The song also reached a peak of #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was a number-one hit on the Hot Adult Contemporary chart, making it a crossover hit. A second single, American Honey, was released to radio on January 11, 2010 and would become their third #1 hit. Our Kind of Love was released as the third single from the album on May 31, 2010 and became a #1 single in September, 2010. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and Top Country Albums charts for the week of Feb. 2, 2010, selling 480,922 copies in the first week. Four weeks after the album's release, it was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.The week of January 9, 2011, the group ventured into the studio to begin recording for their third studio album. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Kelley said, \"We actually just went ahead and decided we\u2019re gonna take two, two and a half months straight in the studio to create this thing and not have all this distraction. Hopefully that will be a good thing\". He goes on to say that the group has around 50 songs which they plan to choose from along with songs from other songwriters. However, he singles out a song called Dancing Away With My Heart as one the band is particularly excited about, a song that the group co-wrote with Josh Kear, who previously wrote with the group on their hit Need You Now.On May 2, 2011, the group released the first single from their upcoming album, titled Just a Kiss. The group performed the single on stage on American Idol's result show on May 5, 2011.Official website found here: http:\/\/ladyantebellum.com\/","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/5025_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"500,000 - 1,000,000"}

Back home, he helped his father with his peanut and fertilizer businesses while playing sports and enjoying the great outdoors. Yet he can remember his mother urging him to belt out George Strait songs over and over while she drove him into town to shop. By age 14, his parents bought him an Alvarez guitar. By 15, his father would take him down to a nearby club, Skinner's, where he shared guitar licks and lead vocals with other local country singers.At age 16, two local songwriters who'd enjoyed some success providing tunes for Nashville artists invited him to join their twice-a-week writing sessions at a local church. By that time, Bryan led his own band, playing at Skinner's and various community events.Encouraged by everyone who heard him play, Bryan planned to move to Nashville after high school graduation. Supported by his family, he was loading his car for the move when tragedy struck. His older brother Chris, Bryan's biggest supporter and one of his best friends, was killed in an auto accident the day Bryan was to leave town.He continued to devote himself to music, finding escape and emotional release in its songs. He poured his feelings into his songwriting, and after enrolling in Georgia Southern University, Bryan and his band would perform nearly every weekend on campus or at nearby clubs or parties. He eventually recorded an album of 10 songs, nine of which he'd written.Despite everyone's encouragement, he stubbornly refused to reconsider moving to Tennessee. After graduation, he went to work for his father's agriculture business. Bryan loved the work, but a year into it, his father forced him to quit the job and move to Nashville. He arrived in Music City on Sept. 1, 2001.Within two months, he'd signed a publishing deal with a company owned by songwriter Roger Murrah.

By the age of fifteen, she had formed an all-girl group called Sol Four. Later that year she won a talent contest on the popular TV show, \u201cSing, Sing, Sing,\u201d which earned her a trip to London. By 1963, Olivia was appearing on local daytime TV shows and weekly pop music programs in Australia. Olivia cut her first single for Decca Records in 1966, a version of Jackie DeShannon\u2019s \"Till You Say You\u2019ll Be Mine.\" In 1971, she recorded a cover of Bob Dylan\u2019s \"If Not For You,\" co-produced by John Farrar, who she continues to collaborate with today. Her 1973 U.S. album debut, \"Let Me Be There,\" produced her first top ten single of the same name, with Olivia being honored by the Academy Of Country Music as Most Promising Female Vocalist and a Grammy Award as Best Country Vocalist. This proved to be only the beginning of a very exciting career. Her countless successes include three more Grammys, numerous Country Music Awards, American Music Awards and Peoples Choice Awards, five 1 hits including \u201cPhysical,\u201d which topped the charts for ten consecutive weeks, and 15 top 10 singles. In 1978, her co-starring role with John Travolta in \u201cGrease\u201d catapulted Olivia into super-stardom. This film led to the production of the most successful movie musical soundtrack in history, featuring the duets \"You\u2019re The One That I Want\" and \"Summer Nights,\" with Travolta, as well as her mega-hit, \"Hopelessly Devoted To You.\" The film was re-released worldwide in 1998 in celebration of its 20th anniversary to even more acclaim, a true testament to the film\u2019s timeless quality. Her other film credits include \u201cXanadu,\u201d \u201cTwo Of A Kind,\u201d \u201cIt\u2019s My Party,\u201d and \u201cSordid Lives.\u201d She followed that success, by co-starring with her daughter, Chloe, in the Showtime movie, \u201cThe Wilde Girls.\u201d Clearly following in her mother\u2019s footsteps, Chloe has recently signed her first record label contract. Olivia\u2019s appeal seems to be timeless. With a career spanning more than three decades she is still a vibrant, creative individual that is adored by fans across the world.

Ms. Newton-John\u2019s devotion and shared commitment to CHEC\u2019s mission and goals enabled the organization to receive worldwide attention and support. (For more information visit www.CHECnet.org.) Her charmed life has not been without its share of upset. In the 90\u2019s, Olivia successfully overcame her own battle with breast cancer, which inspired her self-penned and produced album, \u201cGAIA,\u201d her most personal album reflecting upon her experiences with cancer. She used these experiences to gain greater self-awareness and became a positive inspiration to millions of people battling cancer. As a breast cancer survivor, Olivia has become increasingly well known and respected for talking openly about her battle with breast cancer and for promoting public awareness of the importance of early detection. Her personal victory against cancer led her to announce her partnership with the Austin & Repatriation Medical Centre and the creation of the \u201cOlivia Newton-John Cancer Centre\u201d (ONJCC) on the Austin Campus in her hometown, Melbourne, Australia. The ONJCC will provide a comprehensive range of services and facilities for cancer treatment, education, training and research. (For more information visit www.armc.org.au.)

Olivia was thrilled to perform at the Opening Ceremony of the Sydney 2000 Olympics to an estimated global viewing audience of four billion people. Adding to this Olympic experience is what Olivia feels is one of her most memorable moments \u2013 the honor of carrying the Olympic Torch during the Olympic Torch Relay. Her passion for Australia was ignited again when Olivia reunited with friend and business partner, Pat Farrar, to promote the Koala Blue brand with distinctly Australian wines to proudly bring \u201cthe taste of Australia\u201d to the rest of the world. Her healing spirit also led to the opening of the GAIA Retreat & Spa in her homeland of Australia (www.GaiaRetreat.com.au). Olivia shows no signs of slowing down with recording. In 1999, her album, \"Back With A Heart,\" garnered her an Emmy Award for her songwriting. In 2000\/2001, Olivia released her only live album, \"One Woman\u2019s Live Journey,\" followed by \u201cMagic - The Very Best of Olivia Newton-John,\u201d which celebrated thirty years of recording.

She is also the stepdaughter of June Carter Cash and the stepsister of country singer Carlene Carter.Cash released her first single in 1979, a duet with Bobby Bare called \"We Don't Need No Memories Hangin' 'Round\". Two years later, she had her first country No. 1 (and the biggest commercial hit of her career), \"Seven Year Ache\". Although Cash was a prominent country star throughout the '80s, alongside fellow decade-defining artists Emmylou Harris, Juice Newton, and Dolly Parton, her music was anything but traditional: She topped the charts with songs written not only by herself, but by her father (\"Tennessee Flat Top Box\"), John Hiatt (\"The Way We Make a Broken Heart\"), Tom Petty (\"Never Be You\") and the Beatles (\"I Don't Want to Spoil the Party\"), \"I Don't Know Why You Don't Want Me\", which won her a Grammy in 1985, and \"It's Such a Small World\", a 1987 duet with Rodney Crowell on his album Diamonds & Dirt, provided further hits. A sampling of these songs and more are included on the compilation Hits 1979-1989. In 1979, she married Rodney Crowell, who was to produce most of her hit records. Their stormy marriage lasted until 1992; its break-up is chronicled in Cash's Interiors and in Crowell's album Life Is Messy. Cash later married John Leventhal, who produced her albums The Wheel, 10 Song Demo, Rules of Travel, and Black Cadillac.To date, Cash has had more than twenty top 40 country singles, including eleven chart-toppers, but none since 1990, and she has left Nashville in both spirit and body to pursue her artistic vision. Although she had recorded all of her hits for Columbia Records' Nashville division, she released 10 Song Demo for the pop division of Capitol. Cash resurfaced in 2003 with Rules of Travel. The album features guest appearances by Sheryl Crow and Steve Earle, as well as a tune penned by Joe Henry and the Wallflowers' Jakob Dylan. Cash's latest album, entitled Black Cadillac, was released by Capitol Records in January 2006 to critical acclaim. Many of the songs were written by Cash and address the losses (within a 24-month span) of her step-mother, her father, her step-sister (Rosey Nix Adams) and then finally her mother on Cash's fiftieth birthday.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/5359_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"40,000 - 75,000"}

She was later adopted and grew up in Maine and Massachusetts. She went on to earn a Ph.D. in Fine Arts from the University of Massachusetts and also holds degrees in both Oriental Philosophy and teaching.By 1962, having graduated, Buffy began to tour alone, developing her craft and performing in various concert halls, folk festivals and Native reservations across the U.S, Canada and abroad. She spent a considerable amount of time in the coffeehouses of downtown Toronto's old Yorkville district, and New York City's Greenwich Village as part of the early to mid-1960s folk scene, often alongside other emerging Canadian contemporaries Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell and Neil Young.She quickly earned a reputation as a gifted songwriter, and many of her earliest songs, such as Until It's Time For You To Go, were turned into hits by other artists including Barbra Streisand, Elvis Presley, Sonny and Cher, Chet Atkins, Roberta Flack, Janis Joplin and Neil Diamond, among others.Her debut album, It's My Way, was released on Vanguard Records in 1964 and she was subsequently named Billboard Magazine's Best New Artist. This album also contained the critically acclaimed protest song Universal Soldier that later became a hit for Donovan.In 1967 she released the album Fire and Fleet and Candlelight which contained probably the definitive interpretation of the traditional song Lyke Wake Dirge, and the hit Now that the Buffalo's Gone, a protest over broken treaties with First nations people. Sainte-Marie's other well-known songs as a performer include Mister Can't You See (a Top 40 U.S. hit in 1972) and He's An Indian Cowboy In The Rodeo.In the late sixties, she used a Buchla synthesizer to record the album Illuminations, but it didn't get much notice. \"People were more in love with the Pocahontas-with-a-guitar image,\" she said in a 1998 interview.She married musician Jack Nitzsche in 1969, and regularly appeared on the children's TV series Sesame Street over a five year period from 1976 - 1981, with her son Dakota Starblanket Wolfchild.The song Up Where We Belong (which she co-wrote with Will Jennings and Jack Nitzsche) as performed by Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes for the film An Officer and A Gentleman, received the Academy Award for Best Song in 1982.In 1992, she appeared in the television movie The Broken Chain with Pierce Brosnan.In 1992, after a 16 year recording hiatus, Buffy released the album Coincidence and Likely Stories. Recorded at home on her computer, the album contained the politically charged songs The Big Ones Get Away and Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee, both regarding the on-going plight of Native Americans. She followed up in 1996 with Up Where We Belong, an album in which she re-recorded a number of her greatest hits in more unplugged and acoustic versions, including Universal Soldier.A gifted digital artist, her creations have been displayed at the Glenbow Museum in Calgary, the Winnipeg Art Gallery, the Emily Carr Gallery in Vancouver and the American Indian Arts Museum in Santa Fe.In 2004, a track written and performed by her entitled Lazarus was sampled by Hip Hop producer Kanye West and performed by Cam'Ron and Jim Jones of The Diplomats.

He was one of country music's most popular and influential performers of the 1970s and 1980s. He became country music's first well-known blind singer, and one of the most successful and versatile country \"crossover\" singers of his time, appealing to both country and pop music music markets with successful songs that incorporated pop, R&B, and rock and roll elements.Milsap was born in Robbinsville, North Carolina with a congenital disorder that left him almost completely blind. He was abandoned by his mother as an infant and raised by his grandparents until the age of five, when he was sent to the Governor Morehead School for the Blind in Raleigh, North Carolina.Milsap showed musical aptitude at an early age. The school stressed classical music training but he preferred country, gospel and rhythm-and-blues. He released his first single, Total Disaster, in 1963 at the age of twenty. This was followed by several Ashford And Simpson, compositions, including the memorable \"Let's Go Get Stoned\", which, unfortunately for Milsap, was relegated to a b-side. A few months later it would become a million-selling single for the more popular blind pianist, Ray Charles. 1972 found him working regularly at Roger Miller's King of the Road Club in Nashville, Tennessee and he signed with RCA Records in 1973. He was at his peak of popularity in the late 1970s and early 1980s with songs that made his name familiar to pop as well as country audiences, such as \"It Was Almost Like A Song,\" \"{There's) No Gettin' Over Me,\" \"Smoky Mountain Rain,\" \"I Wouldn't Have Missed It For The World,\" and a remake of Chuck Jackson's \"Any Day Now\" (which was named Billboard magazine's Number One Adult Contemporary hit of 1982). Milsap recorded for RCA until 1992. During that time he created five gold albums, one platinum album and one double platinum album. He also won six Grammy Awards and eight Country Music Association awards including the coveted Entertainer of the Year Award.
