I'm a big fan of 1950s Elvis when he would go on stage and scare people because he was a force and girls would go nuts! You can say the same thing for Prince or The Police. It's just guys who know that people are here to see a show, so I watch those guys and I love studying them because I'm a fan,\" he stated.In 2010 he said, \"Growing up in Hawaii made me the man I am.

Released 8 November 2004 in the U.K., January 2005 in Malaysia, and February 2005 in India on 2Point9 Records, Relentless Records, and Virgin Records, 'Me Against Myself' achieved highly supportive critical reviews, with Dan Gennoe of Yahoo! Music praising Sean's work as \"an album of phenomenally accomplished R&B\". His release was certified as multi-platinum in his native India and gold in the U.K. His three singles (composed with help from Sean's mentor Rishi Rich) also met with British chart success: \"Dance With You\" (#12), \"Eyes On You\" (#6), and \"Stolen\" (#4).Sean's touring, as well as the success of his singles in clubs, led Tareck Ghoneim of Contactmusic.com to call Sean an \"Asian sensation\". Still, he had his eyes on breaking into the U.S. while also keeping his stride with the U.K. charts, and he wanted as well to incorporate more of a slick pop sound to his coming work. His sophomore release, 'My Own Way', featured him on the cover looking as dapper in his light brown suit as a master of business. Released 12 May 2008 on Jayded Records and 2Point9 Records, the work suffered from various leaks and also received some mixed reviews from critics.Nonetheless, the album became commercially successful in the U.K., reaching #6 on the U.K. Albums Chart and #1 on the UK R&B Chart. It eventually became certified platinum. Lead single \"Ride It\" also garnered major airplay throughout Europe, featuring Sean remarking about \"all about the games people play across the dance-floor on a night out\". Momentum building, his third studio album, 'All or Nothing', came out 23 November 2009 with strong promotion in the U.S.International top 40 singles \"Down\" and \"Do You Remember\" cemented Sean's status as a global superstar. With massive tours leading him from TV show to stadium across countries, \"Down\" (also known as \"Down (Feat. Lil' Wayne)\" and other titles due to Lil' Wayne's presence) in particular hit the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming later known as one of the iconic singles of 2009 in American memory. Other nation's listeners also gave his singles strong airplay.The first official single from Jay Sean's fourth studio album, titled 'Worth It All', was \"I'm All Yours\", which he sent for airplay on April 18, 2012. The song featured rapper and entertainer Pitbull. Although not quite achiving as much success as he had hoped in the U.S., it became a major international hit, reaching the top 40 in both Germany and New Zealand, and it ended up being mutli-platinum certified in Australia.When it comes to the business of being a singer there are artists, there are stars and there are phenomenons. Jay Sean is all of the above. The proof is in the press, the sales, the fans and above all, the music.ALL OR NOTHING is both Jay Sean's first American release and first for Cash Money\/Universal Republic Records. But while it's his debut over here, the 29-year-old Pop\/R&B singer\/songwriter\/producer has been a major sensation and multi-platinum artist over there since 2004; releasing two smash albums, scoring two top ten singles, nominated for Britain's heralded MOBO (Music of Black Origin) Award twice and building a worldwide, fervid fan-base that stretches from Russia to Australia to NYC.In some ways ALL OR NOTHING is the best of both worlds. Featuring sizzling, brand new tracks like the lead off single \"Down\" (featuring label mate Lil' Wayne), ALL OR NOTHING also includes some of the songs that helped Jay Sean blow up around the rest of the world.One of those songs is \"Ride It\" written \"strictly on a vibe,\" built on a hypnotic, sinewy track, and delivered with Jay Sean's slick vocals. The video for \"Ride It\" clocked an astonishing 12 million hits on You Tube (20+ million hits across all online video channels) and captivated fans everywhere; including Cash\/Money Records CEO and co-founder, Ronald \"Slim\" Williams who was turned on to Jay Sean's music by one of the singer's producers. Slim liked what he heard and proved it by making Jay Sean the first UK artist to join the Cash\/Money family.The match up of Nawlins swagger and UK Pop\/R&B drives ALL OR NOTHING's first single \"Down\" ft\/ Cash\/Money soldier Lil' Wayne. Already taking radio by storm, \"Down\" resulted from a conversation that began about what's wrong in the world, and blossomed into a celebration of everything that's right - namely love.Offers Jay Sean, \"I'm a very positive, optimistic person and thought let me write a song about the idea that if you've got someone special in your life then nothing else really matters how you need to appreciate the little things. The title is a play on the word 'down.' That's why Lil' Wayne says, 'Are you down like the economy.' It's a fun, very easy track something to pump in your car.\"Another mid tempo breeze born out of real life is \"War.\" The message? \"To battle with anybody, whether it's your girl, family or another country never solved anything,\" explains Jay Sean.It is that mix of introspection and keenly crafted Pop\/R&B songs that has brought Jay Sean from where he was to where he is.Born and raised in London, England and of Indian\/Punjabi heritage, Jay Sean started rapping at 12 and credits rap with helping him structure, produce and write songs. Inspired by R&B stars Jodeci, Brian McKnight, Joe, and Musiq Soulchild, Jay Sean started singing hooks and then stepped it up.Amazingly, at the same time he was exploring his artistic side, Jay Sean was at med school; surely a steadier profession than \"pop-star.\" Luckily Jay Sean's parents had his back.\"It wasn't as though they suddenly went 'you sing?' Jay Sean laughs. \"They knew there might be a strong possibility I'd do music. They told me, 'The same way you apply yourself to your studies you have to work hard doing music.' That's always stayed with me.\"Jay Sean's songs caught the attention of a producer putting together a groundbreaking project fusing traditional Punjabi music and contemporary Pop\/R&B. As soon as the single dropped, Jay Sean became the face and voice of a new generation.\"It was so interesting that the kids who love listening to Pop\/R&B and traditional Indian music said, 'What the hell is this, it's brand new.'\"Along with galvanizing a heretofore, untapped demographic, Jay Sean caught the ears of the industry, because as he explains, \"The English labels knew I had this huge following.His solo debut ME AGAINST MYSELF dropped in 2004 and exploded on the Internet. Jay Sean toured through Europe, South East Asia, as well as spot dates in the US. He even performed, with Akon, at the Ruler of Dubai's daughter's sweet sixteen. In India, this album outsold Jay-Z, Britney Spears and Madonna.\"I have a heavy fan-base in many countries including India. I'm in a minority culture but in many countries, there's still Indians there and they all knew me,\" says Jay Sean.After dealing with creative issues and the desire to change his musical direction to straight-forward Pop\/R&B, Jay Sean made the decision in 2008 to go for self.\"I realized I had a global fan base so why not make the music myself?\"Those instincts paid off and then some when MY OWN WAY, his first release on his own label, Jayded Records, out sold and then some Jay Sean's prior effort. The album peaked at #6 on the UK album chart.All of which brings Jay Sean to ALL OR NOTHING and a future that is just beginning.Speaking with a refreshing mix of humility and confidence, Jay Sean says, \"I've got a different up-bringing and take on a music that you guys make so well and would like to think that I'm a fresh new face and voice. Hopefully American audiences will like it. People always like a change. That's what I have to offer.\"See: www.jaysean.com","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/7940_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"75,000 - 150,000"}

The band consists of Josiah Johnson (vocals, guitar), Jonathan Russell (vocals, guitar), Charity Rose Thielen (violin, vocals), Chris Zasche (bass), Kenny Hensley (keyboards) and Tyler Williams (drums).Composed primarily of transplants to the Seattle area, The Head and the Heart write and play songs that speak to the newness of a fresh start, of the ghosts left behind, of moving forward, all brimming with a soulfulness and hope for a better life than the one we've all been sold.Stylistically, think a folksy Beatles or The Avett Brothers with a little extra oomph. Catchy piano melodies stand side by side with a tight trio of harmonies, and solid minimalist drums, groovin' bass, and plenty of hand percussion and foot stomps make the live show inspiring and really goddamn fun.After the band self-released its eponymous debut album in June 2010, the emblematic Seattle label Sub Pop re-released the album. For the Sub Pop version, the song \u201cSounds like Hallelujah\u201d has been re-recorded, live favorite \u201cRivers and Roads\u201d has been added, and the album has been re-mastered.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/14502_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

Apr\u00e8s un 1er album \u00abDe verre en vers\u00bb, couronn\u00e9 de succ\u00e8s, et qui l\u2019a r\u00e9v\u00e9l\u00e9 au grand public (plus de 60.000 albums vendus), Yves Jamait l\u00e8ve le voile sur son nouvel opus baptis\u00e9 Le Coquelicot. Enfant de prolo de la r\u00e9gion de Dijon \u00e9lev\u00e9 par sa m\u00e8re, s\u2019\u00e9tant frott\u00e9 au monde ouvrier durant toute sa jeunesse, Jamait d\u00e9couvre aujourd\u2019hui avec ses yeux d\u2019enfant ce succ\u00e8s naissant, alors que ce m\u00e9tier reste pour lui un \u00e9ternel r\u00eave de gosse. C\u2019est en effet tr\u00e8s t\u00f4t qu\u2019il se prend d\u2019amour pour la \u00ab vari\u00e9toche fran\u00e7aise \u00bb, comme il aime \u00e0 le dire, d\u00e9couvrant Maxime Le Forestier alors qu\u2019il \u00e9tait aide-cuisinier dans une colonie de vacances. Du coup, tr\u00e8s vite, il ach\u00e8te les disques du chanteur et s\u2019essaye \u00e0 l\u2019\u00e9criture. Il s\u2019en suivra la cr\u00e9ation de son premier groupe L\u2019Adam de Sagesse, dont l\u2019existence durera le temps d\u2019un concert avant d\u2019\u00eatre rattrap\u00e9 par des ann\u00e9es sombres de d\u00e9rive avec pour seul horizon: les zincs. Ce sera la naissance de son fils qui sera l\u2019\u00e9lectrochoc pour Jamait. Alors ouvrier \u00e0 l\u2019usine, il rencontre un musicien et cr\u00e9e un trio au nom sans \u00e9quivoque, De verre en Vers. Le groupe tourne dans la r\u00e9gion dijonnaise et embrasse un public de plus en plus large.A 38 ans, Jamait quitte l\u2019usine et avec sa prime de licenciement \u2013 et celles des autres membres du groupe - finance la r\u00e9alisation dudit premier album autoproduit, De verre en vers. Ce premier galop d\u2019essai, pass\u00e9 aupr\u00e8s du public avec brio, Yves Jamait nous d\u00e9voile d\u00e9sormais son nouvel opus baptis\u00e9 Le Coquelicot. Cet album plus sombre, selon les propres termes de cet enfant de prolo, met en lumi\u00e8re la personnalit\u00e9 tortur\u00e9e de ce saltimbanque \u00e9corch\u00e9, \u00e0 la tendresse sinc\u00e8re, casquette irlandaise \u00e9ternellement viss\u00e9e sur la t\u00eate, devenu chanteur sur le tard.A l\u2019\u00e9coute de l\u2019album, vous pensiez tout simplement cueillir ces 15 nouvelles chansons comme l\u2019on cueille ce charmant sourire vermillon que la nature en f\u00eate adresse aux hommes ? Un gentil coquelicot ? Loin de l\u00e0. Ici, le coquelicot n\u2019est pas que gentil, c\u2019est le rouge \u00e9tendard des \u00e9t\u00e9s inond\u00e9s de soleil; c'est la t\u00e2che de sang clair des moissons d'or. C\u2019est le symbole de la vie, de la joie, de la pl\u00e9nitude, du bonheur, \u00e0 l\u2019image de son interpr\u00e8te, mais c\u2019est aussi sa face sombre : une fleur rebelle qui peuple non seulement les bl\u00e9s m\u00fbrs, mais aussi tous les terrains vagues, toutes les cultures. Indomptable comme lorsque le coquelicot pousse en gros massifs fr\u00e9missants sur les flancs des collines.Et plus encore : c\u2019est aussi le cousin en habit \u00e9clatant du pavot oriental aux \"vertus dormitives\" qui calme, adoucit, mais ne tue jamais. \u00ab J\u2019aime cette fleur, explique Yves Jamait, car c\u2019est une fleur rebelle qu\u2019on ne peut pas mettre en pot ni en bouquet \u00bb. Comme \u00e0 son image : celle d\u2019un artiste qu\u2019on ne peut pas museler ni mettre en cage.Et, de reprendre : \u00ab J\u2019aime le rouge du coquelicot, cette couleur \u00e9tendard. Et puis, le coquelicot, c\u2019est aussi le pavot et cela ressemble \u00e0 un sexe de femme. Bref, toutes ces m\u00e9taphores me plaisent et r\u00e9sument bien l\u2019album \u00bb. Un album de composition r\u00e9aliste qui, une nouvelle fois, procure des \u00e9motions brutes, indicibles, avec des textes burin\u00e9s par la vie et l\u2019envie de piquer juste et au c\u0153ur. On y d\u00e9couvre plus que jamais les f\u00ealures d\u2019un artiste attachant, caboss\u00e9 par la vie, \u00e0 la voix de r\u00e2pe, comme r\u00e9tam\u00e9e par l\u2019enclume des zincs trop longtemps fr\u00e9quent\u00e9s et qui trahit parfois mal une voix \u00e9reint\u00e9e par la cigarette. Du v\u00e9cu.Jamait chante la vie, son quotidien et ses gal\u00e8res avec une interpr\u00e9tation d\u00e9chirante atypique. Des rengaines r\u00e9alistes et populaires, \u00e9closes sur les pav\u00e9s des cit\u00e9s sombres, qui racontent l\u2019amour perdu, les adieux merdeux, la fraternit\u00e9, la vie des zincs, des cirques, la complainte d\u2019un clown, les d\u00e9boires d\u2019une vie de d\u00e9zingu\u00e9 avec cette pudeur qui sied aux poulbots de culture ouvri\u00e8re. Les chansonsTout l\u2019univers de Jamait y figure : des amours d\u00e9trouss\u00e9es comme dans L\u2019Adieu merdeux (\u00ab Il est un peu merdeux ton adieu \/ C'est vraiment l'plus merdeux des adieux\u2026Je te pr\u00e9f\u00e8re dans tes silences immobiles, comme deux c\u0153urs arr\u00eat\u00e9s \/ D\u00e9pos\u00e9s l\u00e0, comme des distances entre nous, pour l'\u00e9ternit\u00e9 \u00bb) ou le superbe Qu\u2019est-ce que tu fous ? sorte d\u2019appel vibrant au retour de l\u2019\u00eatre aim\u00e9. (\u00ab Qu\u2019est-ce que tu fous sans moi ? \/ Qu\u2019est-ce que tu fous l\u00e0-bas ? \/ Tu dois avoir, j\u2019imagine, une raison \u00e0 toi pour ne pas \u00eatre l\u00e0 \/ Je suis s\u00fbr qu\u2019il t\u2019embobine \/ Je suis s\u00fbr qu\u2019il te regarde avec, au fond des yeux, des promesses d\u2019amour \/ Quel que soit le serment qu\u2019il farde, tu n\u2019y vois que du bleu dans cette basse cour \u00bb) ;Ou encore des amours tangentes qui ne tiennent qu\u2019\u00e0 un fil comme la chanson L\u2019Equilibre (\u00ab Tu me dis que je perds l'\u00e9quilibre sur le fil du temps \/ Que je serai plus facile \u00e0 suivre \u00e0 mon enterrement \/ Que le vin qui m'enivre \u00e0 de mauvais relents \u00bb).Jamait nous livre \u00e9galement sa \u00ab po\u00e9tique des bistrots \u00bb, avec la reprise de la chanson d\u2019Aznavour (une de ses idoles), La Salle et la Terrasse ainsi que dans la chanson Jean-Louis ou le monologue du client (\u00ab Boire, \u00e7a r\u00e9chauffe le c\u0153ur, m\u00eame si \u00e7a nique le foie.\/ Pour sortir d'la torpeur que veux-tu, je bois \/ Allez mon vieux Jean-Louis, sers m'en donc une derni\u00e8re, je m'sens un peu aigri, pour tout dire, j'suis amer \u00bb). Mais Jamait chante \u00e9galement la vie, \u00e9clairant d\u2019un jour cru son exp\u00e9rience de \u00ab cette chienne de vie \u00bb, qui ne l\u2019a pas toujours m\u00e9nag\u00e9, \u00e0 l\u2019instar de la chanson C\u2019est la vie, une des plus courtes mais assur\u00e9ment la plus percutante : \u00ab C'n'est pas moi qui suis aigri, c'est la vie qu'est mortelle, qui te sort du nid et te rogne les ailes \u00bb. Tout est dit. Une \u00e9motion qui atteint son paroxysme lorsqu\u2019il interpr\u00e8te Vierzon, chanson d\u00e9di\u00e9e \u00e0 son p\u00e8re, en \u00e9cho \u00e0 Barbara, B\u00e9ranger et Brel. \u00ab J\u2019ai retrouv\u00e9 mon p\u00e8re il y a 2 ans, je ne l\u2019avais jamais connu. On m\u2019a appel\u00e9 pour me dire qu\u2019il \u00e9tait mort, vers Vierzon. En allant l\u00e0-bas, j\u2019ai touch\u00e9 pour la premi\u00e8re fois un mort et j\u2019ai d\u00e9couvert mon p\u00e8re. Cela m\u2019a suffisamment boulevers\u00e9 pour que j\u2019en fasse une chanson.\u00bb Jamait ponctue l\u2019album avec Dijon, sa ville de naissance, ville avec qui il nourrit une relation d\u2019amour - agacement (\u00ab Je te salue, ma belle Dijon, \u00f4 ma\u00eetresse burgonde\/ Je te salue, ma vieille Dijon\/ Et nulle part au monde je n'aurais voulu na\u00eetre.\/ Bien s\u00fbr tu as exacerb\u00e9 mes aigreurs de jeunesse\/ Mais tu es longue \u00e0 d\u00e9coincer, \u00e0 te bouger les fesses\/ Aussi, j'ai voulu te quitter pour une autre, plus littorale\/ Bien que la fille f\u00fbt dessal\u00e9e, me manquait mon canal\/ Et vois-tu, je suis revenu, ma pr\u00e9cieuse bourgeoise\/ Et je ne te quitterai jamais plus pour une plus grivoise \u00bb).

{"key":"5016","name":"Tim McGraw","bio":"Samuel Timothy \"Tim\" McGraw (born May 1, 1967 in Delhi, Louisiana) is an American country singer and actor. With many of his albums and singles topping the country music charts, Tim has achieved total album sales in excess of 40 million units. He is married to country singer Faith Hill and is the son of former baseball player Tug McGraw. His trademark hit songs include Indian Outlaw, Don't Take the Girl, I Like It, I Love It, Something Like That, It's Your Love (featuring his wife, Faith Hill), and Live Like You Were Dying.McGraw had eleven consecutive albums to debut at Number One on the Billboard albums charts; Twenty-one singles to hit number 1 on the Billboard Hot Country 100 chart; three singles named the #1 country song of the year; (It's Your Love, Just To See You Smile, and Live Like You Were Dying) Won 3 Grammys, 14 Academy of Country Music awards, 11 Country Music Association (CMA) awards, 10 American Music Awards and 3 People's Choice Awards. Ranked as one of the top five in all genres of music, his Soul2Soul II tour with Faith Hill became the highest-grossing tour in country music history.McGraw has ventured into acting, with a supporting role in the Billy Bob Thornton film, Friday Night Lights, a role in The Kingdom, a lead role in 2006's Flicka and a supporting role in Four Christmases with Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon. He is also a minority owner of the Arena Football League's Nashville Kats.McGraw came to the attention of Curb Records in 1990. After cutting a demo single, McGraw gave a copy to his father, Tug McGraw. A man who was friends with Curb Records executives heard the demo while driving with Tug McGraw one day and recommended that Curb contact the young singer. Several weeks after he was able to play his tape for Curb executives, they signed him to a recording contract. Two years later, in 1992, he had his first minor hit Welcome to the Club off his self-titled debut album, Tim McGraw. Although the album failed to make much of a dent on the charts, McGraw did have two other minor hits from it in 1993, Memory Lane and Two Steppin Mind.All I Want, released in 1995, continued his run of success, debuting at number one on the country charts. The album sold over two million copies and reached the top 5 on the Billboard 200. I Like It, I Love It reached number one on the country charts as the leadoff single, while She Never Lets It Go to Her Heart also went to number one in 1996. Can't Be Really Gone, All I Want is a Life, and Maybe We Should Just Sleep On It were all top 5 hits.In 1996, McGraw headlined the most successful country tour of the year, The Spontaneous Combustion Tour, with Faith Hill as his supporting act. Faith Hill broke off her engagement to her former producer Scott Hendricks so that she and Tim could start dating each other; then married on October 6, 1996. The couple have since had three daughters, Gracie Katherine (born May 1997), Maggie Elizabeth (born August 1998) and Audrey Caroline (born December 2001).McGraw's next album, 1997's Everywhere, again topped the country charts and reached number two on the album charts, selling 4 million copies. The first single, It\u2019s Your Love, a duet with Faith Hill, became the first single in twenty years to spend six weeks on top of Billboard's country singles chart (the previous such song had been Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson's \"Luckenbach, Texas (Back to the Basics of Love)\" in 1977). The single reached #7 on the pop chart (and gained platinum status); and became the most played single in the history of the Billboard country charts. Five more singles Everywhere, Where the Green Grass Grows, One of These Days, For a Little While, and Just to See You Smile reached the top of the country charts from the album, with the last of these setting a new record by spending 42 weeks on the Billboard charts. The Country Music Association awarded Everywhere its Album of the Year award for 1997.A Place in the Sun in 1999 continued McGraw's streak, debuting atop both the US pop and country album charts and selling three million albums. It featured another four chart topping singles on the country charts including Please Remember Me, Something Like That, My Best Friend, and My Next Thirty Years; Some Things Never Change reached #7 on the country chart. He also contributed a song for the Grammy-winning tribute album to Bob Wills, Ride With Bob. His song, a cover of Milk Cow Blues, was recorded as a duet with Asleep at the Wheel, whom he had met while performing together at the George Strait Country Music Festival.McGraw recorded two more duets with his wife in the late 1990s, both of which appeared on her albums. Just to Hear You Say That You Love Me off her multi-platinum 1998 album Faith, reached the top five of the US country charts, while her follow-up and 1999 album Breathe featured Let's Make Love, which would win a Grammy Award in 2000 for Best Country Vocal Collaboration.In 2000, McGraw released his Greatest Hits album which topped the charts for nine weeks and sold almost 6 million copies, making it one of the biggest selling albums in the modern country market. In the latter half of the year, he and Hill went out on the Soul2Soul Tour, playing to sellout crowds in 64 venues including Madison Square Garden. It was one of the top tours of any genre in the US and the leading country tour during 2000.While in Buffalo, McGraw and Kenny Chesney became involved in a scuffle with police officers after Chesney, who had permission from the sheriff's daughter, attempted to ride a police horse. McGraw came to Chesney's aid after police officers nearby believed the horse was being stolen and tried to arrest him. The two were arrested and charged with assault, but were later cleared. During a concert with the George Strait Country Music Festival several weeks later, Hill, dressed as a police officer, made an unscheduled appearance at the end of McGraw's set and led him off the stage.McGraw's next album, Set This Circus Down, was released in April 2001 and spawned four number one country hits - Grown Men Don't Cry, Angry All the Time (with Faith Hill), The Cowboy in Me, and Unbroken. He also provided harmony vocals for the Jo Dee Messina song Bring On the Rain, which he also produced. The song topped the country charts.Hungry for more of his music, fans downloaded a version of his performance of the song Things Change from his appearance at the Country Music Association Awards Show. The song was played extensively on radio, becoming the first country song to appear on the charts from a fully downloaded version.In 2002, Tim McGraw bucked country music traditions by recording his album Tim McGraw and the Dancehall Doctors with his tour band The Dancehall Doctors. Unlike rock music, where it is commonplace for touring bands to provide the music on albums recorded by the artist they support, country albums are typically recorded with session musicians. McGraw chose to use his own touring band in order to recognize their part in his success and to capture some of the feel of a real band.All of the Dancehall Doctors have worked with McGraw since at least 1996. They include: * Darran Smith - Lead Guitar, Acoustic guitar * Bob Minner - Rhythm Guitar, Acoustic guitar, Banjo, Mandolin * Denny Hemingson - Steel Guitar, Electric, Baritone, and Slide Guitars, Dobro * John Marcus - Bass guitar * Dean Brown - Fiddle, Mandolin * Jeff McMahon - Piano, Organ, Synthesizer, Keyboards * Billy Mason - Drums * David Dunkley - Percussion.The album debuted at number 2 on the country albums charts, with the single Real Good Man reaching number one on the Hot Country Songs chart. She's My Kind of Rain reached number 2 in 2003 and Red Ragtop reached the top 5. The album also featured a cover version of an early Elton John 1970 classic Tiny Dancer, as well as appearances by Kim Carnes on Comfort Me - a response to the September 11, 2001 attacks - and Don Henley and Timothy B. Schmit of the Eagles on Illegal.2004's Live Like You Were Dying continued McGraw's record of commercial success. The title track, dedicated to his father Tug McGraw who died of a brain tumor earlier in the year, was a soaring ode to living life fully and in the moment, while the second single Back When was a paean to an easy nostalgia. Live Like You Were Dying spent seven non-consecutive weeks at #1 on Billboard (10 weeks on Radio & Records) and went on to become the biggest hit single of the year. It also became one the most awarded songs\/records by winning ACM Single and Song of the Year, CMA Single and Song of the Year and a Grammy.In late 2004, his unlikely duet with hip-hop artist Nelly on Over and Over, a soft ballad of lost love, became a crossover hit spending 10 weeks atop the Top 40 chart. This made Tim the first modern country artist to have two 10 week number one hits in a single year. \"Over and Over\" brought McGraw a success he had never previously experienced on contemporary hit radio, rap radio, and brought both artists success neither had previously experienced in the hot adult contemporary market. The song also spent a week at the top of the UK single charts, and was McGraw's first visit to the UK hit countdown.Throughout the 2005 NFL season McGraw sang an alternate version of I Like It, I Love It every week during the season. The alternate lyrics, which changed each week, would make reference to plays during Sunday's games and the song would be played alongside video highlights during halftime on Monday Night Football. Later in the year McGraw became a minority owner of the Arena Football League's Nashville Kats when majority owner Bud Adams (owner of the NFL's Tennessee Titans) was awarded the expansion franchise. It was dedicated to Tug McGraw..In April 2006 McGraw and Hill began their 73-concert, 55 city, Soul2Soul II Tour 2006, again to strong commercial acceptance. The tour grossed nearly $89 million and sold almost 1.1 million tickets, making it the top grossing tour in the history of country music. It was named \"Major Tour of the Year\" by the prestigious Pollstar Magazine, beating out such heavyweights as Madonna and the Rolling Stones. In a special gesture, the couple donated all of the profits from their performance in New Orleans to Hurricane Katrina relief.Tim, along with Kenny Chesney, contributed to a version of Tracy Lawrence 's song Find Out Who Your Friends Are, which can be found on Lawrence's album For the Love. Although the official single version features only Lawrence's vocals, many stations have opted to play the version with McGraw and Chesney instead.McGraw released his eleventh album, Let It Go, on March 27, 2007. The album's debut single, Last Dollar (Fly Away), reached No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs chart, marking Tim's first No. 1 single since Back When in late 2004. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and #1 on the Billboard Country Album chart, marking his 4th #1 top 200 album and 9th #1 country album. His daughters can be heard singing the chorus during the last few seconds of the song on the video.During the Academy of Country Music awards show on May 21, 2007, McGraw performed a song titled If You're Reading This, which he co-wrote with The Warren Brothers. Several radio stations began to play the live recording of the song; as a result, it entered the Hot Country Songs chart at #35.McGraw also produced the debut album of country music duo Halfway to Hazard. The duo's first single, Daisy, peaked at #39 on the country charts in Summer of 2007.In the summer of 2007 McGraw and Hill toured together once again in the Soul2Soul 2007 tour.In the January 18, 2008 edition of the USA Today newspaper, McGraw was featured on the Def Leppard album Songs From The Sparkle Lounge and has co-written the first single, Nine Lives, with Def Leppard band members Joe Elliott, Phil Collen and Rick Savage. The unusual pairing goes back to 2006 when McGraw joined Def Leppard onstage for the song Pour Some Sugar On Me. The album has a release date of May 6, 2008.In May 2008 he hit the road with the Live Your Voice Tour. The mainly outdoor arena concert tour will be his first solo outing in nearly three years. Also in May 2008, he debuted a new song off of his follow-up to Let It Go at the Stagecoach Music Festival in Indio, California.In July 2008, Tim McGraw's sixth single, and the title track of his album, Let It Go, was released to country radio. Following that, a seventh single, Nothin' To Die For, entered the Country charts at 57 late December. Tim McGraw released his third greatest hits package, Greatest Hits 3 on October 7, 2008. The album features 12 tracks. No new material was recorded for the compilation. A new album of all new material was scheduled for release in October, but has since been pushed back to 2009.The Better Than I Used To Be Songfacts states that after over 20 years with Curb Records and a legal battle, Tim McGraw finally left the label after a judge freed him from his contract. Curb immediately released Better Than I Used To Be as the second single from Emotional Traffic, an album that had been shelved for several months following the dispute.The Truck Yeah Songfacts reports that McGraw signed with Big Machine Records on May 21, 2012.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/5016_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"13591","name":"Craig David","bio":"R&B sensation Craig David was barely out of his teens when he took a hold of the U.K. pop circuit, twisted it around, and threw it back on its head during fall 2000. This fresh-faced native of Southampton, England, was merely playing into his love of funkadelic hip-hop and crooning urban stylings when he started writing songs as a teenager. His love for Terence Trent D'Arby, Sisqo, and Donnell Jones allowed him to put his creative love for art, culture, and history into a musical beat all his own. And the new millennium belonged to him and garage had been redefined.Born Craig Ashley David on May 5, 1981, David was slicing and dicing ragga and R&B on the local station PCRS 106.5FM and found himself playing club gigs prior to rubbing elbows with some of music's finest. It was during this time he hooked with Artful Dodger's Mark Hill. After winning a national writing competition, Craig was more than ready to start producing with Hill. His big break came when he put his own additives on Damage's \"I'm Ready,\" a B-side to \"Wonderful Tonight.\" Soon thereafter he remixed his own version of Human League's \"Human\" and started himself a regular spot in area clubs during the weekends. \"Rewind\" was another underground smash, specifically a definitive move for David. His respect for Stevie Wonder, Faith Evans, and R. Kelly was most apparent, however his own vocal talent was beginning to shine. He and Hill's specialty show on Capital Radio provided another outlet for David to shape his musical work of genius. \"Fill Me In\" proved yet another hit, shooting straight to number one in summer 2000. David was now the youngest British male solo artist to have a number one single. He was 19-years-old. A deal with Wildstar Records in the U.K. sparked toward the end of the summer as \"Re-Rewind\" and \"7 Days\" gained praise in late November. A stateside agreement with Atlantic also led to more global hype. He had sold 3.5 million records worldwide and garage was finally becoming massive overseas and it was David's debut Born to Do It that was at the head. But not all were pulling for this R&B prodigy. Aside from winning three awards at the MOBO's in October, Craig David walked away empty handed at the 2000 Brit Awards in February 2001. He was up for six nominations, including Best British Male Solo Artist, Best British Newcomer, and Best British Single for \"7 Days,\" but industry politics fell into operation. Many mainstream stars came to David's defense, artists such as Elton John, U2, and Robbie Williams, professing their disgust for the ill recognition for David and his musical efforts in the past year. Death threats soon followed for the superstar in spring 2001 as he took the stage in a show in London. An anonymous caller claimed a soldier would injure David with tear gas and hand grenades. Still, his record sales continued to soar in the U.K. with sales of Born to Do It increasing over 100 percent after his dismal beginning months of 2001. He bombared American Shores with a deal with Atlantic and released Born to Do It stateside in summer 2001. Mainstream radio flocked to him immediately. Missy Elliott, Beyonc\u00e9 Knowles, and Usher called themselves fans. The next year, things didn't simmer down for the now international pop star. Craig David returned with a sophomore effort Slicker Than Your Average in November 2002. This particular album saw a much grittier side from David. Debut single \"What's Your Flava?\" also became one of the year's hottest singles.In 2005 he released his 3rd album \"The Story Goes\u2026\", the first single of the album, \"All The Way\", returned him to the top three, and the second single, \"Don't Love You No More (I'm Sorry)\", tied with \"7 Days\" as his longest running single in the charts since \"Rewind\", spending 15 weeks inside the UK top 75. However, the album's third single, \"Unbelievable\", debuted and peaked at #18 in March 2006.In 2007, he collaborated with UK rapper Kano on his upcoming album London Town, for the single \"This is the Girl\". The track was released on August 27, 2007 and debuted at #18 on the UK charts.The first single \"Hot Stuff\" from the album Trust Me, was released on November 5, 2007 . The single was a top ten hit, whilst the album charted at #18 on the UK Albums Chart.\"6 of 1 Thing\", the second single to be taken from Trust Me charted at thirty-nine on the UK Singles Chart, becoming his second lowest charting single to date.His UK tour will start in June 2008, details of which can be found on the official website.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/13591_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"145176","name":"Justin Hayward","bio":"Justin Hayward (born David Justin Hayward, on 14 October 1946, in Swindon, England) is best known as the main singer, guitarist and composer with The Moody Blues.Having played with local bands in the Swindon area since the age of 13, Hayward's professional career began in 1964 when he joined Marty Wilde and his wife, Joyce, in the Wilde Three. While still only 17, and against Wilde's advice, Hayward signed a publishing contract with the skiffle artist and record producer, Lonnie Donegan. This was a move that Hayward would go on to regret as it meant that the songwriter's and composer's rights to all the songs he wrote up until 1974 would forever be owned by Donegan's Tyler Music.Hayward joined the Moody Blues in late 1966, replacing the departing vocalist, Denny Laine. Bassist John Lodge replaced Clint Warwick at the same time.The integration of Hayward and Lodge into the Moody Blues sparked greater commercial success and recognition for the band, transforming them from a mainly covers band into one of the biggest selling acts of all-time. Their album sales from 1978 to date (2006) are in excess of 60 million. The exact figures for the bands' album sales from 1967 to 1978 have been contested in court as record company and accountants' figures differ considerably.The 1967 album \"Days of Future Passed\", one of the first and most influential albums of its genre, spawned the Hayward-penned singles \"Tuesday Afternoon\" and the classic \"Nights in White Satin\" that went on to sell in excess of 2 million copies. Hayward also wrote \"Question\" (that was held off the No1 spot in the UK by the England 1970 World Cup Squad with \"Back Home\") as well as the majority of the group's other singles including \"Driftwood\" (1978), \"The Voice\" (1981), \"Blue World\" (1983), \"Your Wildest Dreams\" (1986), \"I Know You're Out There Somewhere\" (1988), \"Bless the Wings\" (1991), \"English Sunset\" (1999) and \"Haunted\" (1999).In 1972, the group decided to take a break from performing and recording as a unit. During this time, Hayward found international solo success - in 1977, with his album, \"Songwriter\", and the first single from it, \"One Lonely Room\"; and in 1978, collaborating on the concept album \"Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of H G Wells' 'The War of the Worlds'\" that yielded his hits \"Forever Autumn\" and \"The Eve of the War\".Hayward has also co-written songs with other members of the band during their career, most prolifically with the band's bassist\/vocalist, John Lodge. Together, in 1975, they had a hit single, \"Blue Guitar\", and album, \"Blue Jays\".During the 1980s, Hayward composed and performed for film and television, including the theme song, \"It Won't Be Easy\", for the 1987 BBC2 science fiction series, \"Star Cops\". He also wrote \"Something Evil, Something Dangerous\" for the film \"The Howling IV\", \"Eternal Woman\" for the film \"She\" and music for \"The Shoe People\".In 1989, with producer-arranger Mike Batt, Hayward released \"Classic Blue\" - an album of standards written by other composers, set to orchestration and arranged by Batt. His most recent solo album, \"The View From The Hill\", was released in 1996 and a live recording, \"Live in San Juan Capistrano\" followed in 1998.In 1974, Hayward was awarded the first of numerous ASCAP awards he has received for songwriting. In 1985, the Moody Blues picked up the Ivor Novello Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music, followed in 1988 by Hayward receiving the Ivor Novello Award, among other honours, for Composer of the Year for \"I Know You're Out There Somewhere\". In 2004, Hayward was awarded the \"Gold Badge\" for lifetime achievement by the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors (BASCA) to add to the \"Golden Note\" for lifetime achievement that he was awarded in 2000 by the American Society of Songwriters, Composers and Publishers (ASCAP) - one of only a handful of British artists to have received this award, the previous before Hayward being Elton John in 1991.In a recent BBC World Service interview, Hayward and Lodge made it clear they have no plans to stop working and regarded it as \"a privilege\" to still be working in the music business and have people still want to see them perform and buy their music.Hayward continues to tour and record with Moody Blues and as a solo artist. In April 2006, he took part in the stage tour of \"Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of H G Wells' 'The War of the Worlds' \". The show received outstanding reviews from audiences and critics alike and an international tour of the show is currently in the planning stage (June 2006).Hayward has lived in Monte Carlo since 1996 with his wife, Marie (married December 1970). They have one daughter, Doremi Celeste (born December 1972).","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/145176_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"40,000 - 75,000"}
