90's Country Night

Brothers Osborne

Two sons from a working-class family, John and TJ Osborne grew up in a small, Maryland water town writing and playing songs for friends and family in their father͛s shed. John moved to Nashville first to play in other bands and two years later, TJ joined him. It was then they formed Brothers Osborne as a twang-and-crunch duo that blends equal parts country and rock into one of the freshest, most identifiable sounds to come out of Nashville in recent years. The singer/songwriter siblings recently earned back-to-back ACM Vocal Duo of the Year Awards along with ACM Music Video of the Year for their Top 10, GRAMMY-nominated single, ͞It Ain͛t My Fault.͟ The award-winning video also stands as the current CMA Music Video of the Year. Brothers Osborne also currently reigns as the two-time CMA Vocal Duo of the Year. Brothers Osborne͛s debut album PAWN SHOP was released January 2016 and was recently certified Gold by the RIAA. PAWN SHOP features three GRAMMY-nominated tracks including ͞It Ain͛t My Fault,͟the Platinum Certified No. 1 smash hit ͞Stay A Little Longer,͟ as well as Top 25 hit ͞21 Summer.͟ They just released their sophomore album, PORT SAINT JOE, in April and currently have a Top 30 single with ͞Shoot Me Straight͟. Brothers Osborne has previously toured with Chris Stapleton, Eric Church, Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert and more. They are direct support for Dierks Bentley on his Mountain High Tour this summer and recently came back from a sold out headlining tour in the UK.

Born in the bluegrass state of Kentucky, Carly Pearce was destined for country music stardom. She fronted a touring bluegrass band at the tender age of 11, later leaving her high school and moving to Pigeon Forge to perform at "Dollywood" at the age of 16. Since moving to Nashville in 2009, Carly has shared the stage with artists such as Hunter Hayes, Florida Georgia Line and Gary Alan, toured with "Pretty Little Liars" star Lucy Hale as her backup singer, been a regular artist at the legendary "Bluebird Cafe" and made her Grand Ole Opry debut May 30th.

Her first single, "Blame the Whiskey," has been a listener favorite on Sirius XM's The Highway over the last year, she signed an endorsement deal with international makeup line "Essence" cosmetics, was named one of Rolling Stones' "10 Artists to Watch This Summer", became one of CMT's "Next Women of Country" for 2016, signed with CAA Nashville for booking and currently opening for artists such as Kelsea Ballerini and the Josh Abbott Band, who she recorded a duet ("Wasn't That Drunk") with that will hit radio in January 2016.

Carly recently signed a publishing deal with BMG Nashville and is currently working on new music with hit producer, Busbee.

Raw talent is essential for an artist to develop a successful career, but a strong sense of identity is just as crucial. Adam Sanders possesses both. In a day and time where budding entertainers can be shaken by numerous factors from social media critics to music industry gatekeepers, it takes a special caliber of person to know what’s truly important to them and, even more difficult, to hold fast to those values. Sanders knows who he is and his music reflects that. The proof is in the listening on his compelling new EP.



Faith, Family, Music, the Outdoors and Fitness are the pillars his life revolves around and Sanders has discovered those are priorities for many of the folks he’s singing too as well. “I’ve grown a lot in the past year and I thought, ‘Who am I, really?’ I always thought of myself as an everyday guy, but different than the guy on stage,” he says of reconciling his public and private personas. “I’ve learned over the last year that that guy off stage needs to be the same guy on stage so it’s real. I want to be relatable and I want to be me in every area of my life. Fans can see when it’s not real, and I’m happier and more successful when I am not pretending to be something I’m not.”

A native of Lake City, FL, Sanders knew at an early age that music would be his life. “My mom likes to say I could sing before I could talk,” says the avid outdoorsman and fitness fanatic. “I’ve got tons of pictures of me dressed up in a cowboy hat, boots and jeans because I idolized Alan Jackson very early on and envisioned him as my hero.”
Most of Sanders’ family had musical talent, especially his uncle Scotty Sanders, a professional steel guitar player, who encouraged his nephew’s dream. After honing his skills performing around northern Florida, Sanders moved to Nashville in 2009. He worked construction to pay the bills while developing his chops as a songwriter. His skills caught the attention of executives at Big Yellow Dog who signed him to a publishing deal.
Sanders first found success in Nashville as a songwriter, penning songs for Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley and Tyler Farr, among others. One of Music Row’s hottest young songwriters, Sanders has topped the charts with such #1 singles as Cole Swindell’s “Ain’t Worth the Whiskey” and Dustin Lynch’s “Hell of a Night.” He honed his craft hanging out with pals like Swindell, Farr, Jon Pardi, Chase Rice and Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, and became like a younger brother to a group of hit-bound young talents on the cusp of success.
Sanders learned how to craft a song that was right in the pocket for country radio. He then embarked on his artist career, quickly earning a reputation as an up and comer to watch as he independently sold over 70,000 singles and scored over 30 million Spotify streams. Yet Sanders admits his early efforts weren’t truly synonymous with who he really is as a person. “I started feeling like a puppet just trying to chase what labels thought I needed to sound like and so I finally just stepped back,” he says. “I’ve found what I’m not and I know what I am. For a while, I tried to run from being country and there’s no way you can take that away from me because it’s the way I grew up. And I never took a guitar lesson. I never took vocal lessons. Everything that I’ve done at this point is through just hard work and dedication.”
Self-examination led to Sanders focusing on what is truly important to him and what he wants to say to his growing audience. The result is his new EP and the life-affirming songs that are his personal country music manifesto. The lead single, “Thankful For,” is quintessential Adam Sanders. It’s an upbeat ode to all the blessings he’s grateful to enjoy. Ironically, he was in a difficult place when he wrote it. “I was going through a breakup and things in my life were shifting,” he says. “I didn’t realize how much I was going to need that song or how much it was really going to become ME until last year. I’m growing in my faith and a lot of things are really just taking shape in my life. Now when I sing it, I believe every word of it and it truly describes me.”



Another song that is close to his heart is “Alan Jackson.” It’s an upbeat number that not only honors his hero, but tells the humorous story of a guy trying to win his girlfriend back utilizing Jackson’s music, and winsomely observing that “If Alan can’t get her back, then I guess she’s gone.”



The EP is filled with songs that are vividly brought to life through Sanders’ smooth, evocative voice and his searing visual lyrics. A prime example is “Burning Roses,” a heartbreak ballad about a guy who turns a truck load of flowers into crimson ash as he dips each stem in kerosene and sets fire to half a week’s pay along with his hopes and dreams. Co-written with Josh Kear, other artists have tried to record it, but Sanders held onto it for his project, and after hearing his aching vocals, it’s hard to imagine anyone else doing the song justice.



“Prayed for Me” is a tune that perfectly illuminates where Adam Sanders is both personally and musically. It’s solid country with a positive message—the very definition of this young man and his artistry. “Every day it applies more and more to my life,” he smiles. “I grew up in church my whole life and that applies to me because I do know that there’s a lot of people that’s prayed for me and my music and for a long time.”



Through faith, hard work and God-given talent, Adam Sanders is seeing those prayers answered these days. “I was able to tear everything in my life back to the foundation and built brick by brick back right this time, and now I’m starting to see the wheels turn again in my career,” he says. “I know without a doubt that music is what I’ve been born to do and I want to impact people in a positive way.”

With a building sheath of synth and down on it groove, Lucie Silvas digs in on ͞Kite,͟ the reckless kind of women who knows no fear. Pounding, pumping, thumping, this is a dance song about a woman getting gone, showing that the New Zealand/United Kingdom-grown songstress isn͛t afraid to thrown down. Not that everything the dusty blond lifts her voice to lands that aggressive. For the irrepressible Silvas who can tempest and coo, it͛s about hitting the emotional bull͛s eye that lends an immediacy to the songs on E.G.O, the utterly independent project that follows her critically acclaimed Letters To Ghosts. ͞Fleetwood Mac, the Carpenters, Carole King: I love the way they write songs,͟concedes the pianist who͛s been an international sensation and walked away from it. ͞Bowie to Bacharach to the Beach Boys, Karen Carpenter to the Jackson 5 and Dusty Springfield, it͛s all mixed up in there.͟ She laughs. ͞It͛s like I͛m doing arts & crafts with my career, like I have a sewing machine in the back of my shitty apartment. I͛m just piecing and patching together all these things I love, making something else altogether.͟Working with producer and ͞my best friend͟ Jon Green, the pair excavated a nu soul/cocktail/dance͛n͛roll hybrid that moves through an emotional palette reflective of a young woman on the brink of the best part of her life. For the young woman who͛s seen more than most, who manages to outrun the jaded that dampen most people in the music industry, there͛s a vulnerability that permeates this record. Even drawing the line, Lucie Silvas believes in humanity, in possibility, in hope. Here, Silvas͛ greatest strength is manifested: not quite magical thinking, but the ability – at least in song -- to make faith attainable.
