About Sixwire:
Sixwire's first Warner Brothers release debuted in the top 30, and spawned the chart hits LOOK AT ME NOW and WAY TOO DEEP.  Touring followed with artists like Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, Martina McBride, Phil Vassar, and others.  When Sixwire departed Warner Brothers, some of the band members served as the house band on USA Network's NASHVILLE STAR for 3 seasons.  Sixwire was chosen to be a part of FOX Network show called THE NEXT GREAT AMERICAN BAND.  The three-month filming schedule required a temporary move to Los Angeles for the quintet, and established a larger nation-wide following than Sixwire's prior exposure from country radio. 

Sixwire returned to Nashville to become the house band for CMT's CAN YOU DUET for two seasons.  American Idol producer recruited Sixwire to serve as house band on their new show CMT's NEXT SUPERSTAR.

That led to a call from ABC and LION'S GATE to be backing band for character 'Rayna Jaymes' played by actress CONNIE BRITTON on ABC's 'NASHVILLE'.  Sixwire was regularly seen with Britton, and also with co-star CHARLES ESTEN who plays the character 'Deacon Claybourne'.  Esten befriended the band, and asked Sixwire to join him on tour, which sometimes also features actress CLARE BOWEN ('Scarlett O'Connor' on 'Nashville') and other cast members. 'NASHVILLE' is currently in its 6th season, and airing on its new home, CMT Network. Sixwire is currently recording a new studio album.

About Stranger Friends:
If you combine two independent songwriters, one with a Grammy nomination and the other with multiple Garth Brooks cuts, then mix in an original 10 song soundtrack they wrote for the upcoming feature film, Dog Years, starring Burt Reynolds and Ariel Winter - you would have Nashville’s newest duo, Stranger Friends. John Martin and Jamie Floyd create an intimate West Coast sound rooted in vintage country music delivered with a modern style. Through laid back, rootsy arrangements with lyric driven, classic songwriting and a vulnerable approach to vocals/harmonies, Stranger Friends sound invites you in to be a part of their uncommon story.
 
About Andrea Zonn:
 
Andrea is a profoundly prolific singer songwriter and phenomenal musician. Andrea’s years on the road as a fiddler and harmony singer for James Taylor, Vince Gill, Trace Adkins and others have drawn her close to some important artists. She’s the first to tell you how much she values working for them. But on "Rise," Zonn’s second album as an artist, they’re supporting her.
Her good friends worked on her last CD project are Taylor on harmony vocals, plus country legend Gill.  Also lending extraordinary talent was modern day blues master Keb’ Mo’ singing and playing guitar, and dobro star Jerry Douglas, Newgrass-founding mandolinist Sam Bush, list, current Doobie Brother John Cowan, and multi-award winning musician Mac McAnally.

<![CDATA[Little River Band starts online Fund Raiser to help Domestic and Wildlife animals suffering in Texas]]>Tue, 29 Aug 2017 22:00:01 GMThttp://insidethesong.com/press-releases/little-river-band-starts-online-fund-raiser-to-help-domestic-and-wildlife-animals-suffering-in-texasPicture
Little River Band created a fund raiser to try and help raise funds for Wildlife and Domestic Animals in Houston, Texas. Everyone can see devastation by just turning on their TV's.  The Red Cross and many other organizations are taking care of people that are in need in Houston. The animals are going to need help as well.  

When the band was doing research regarding organizations and not for profits that help animals in Houston, they ran across Harvey the Hurricane Hawk and TWRC Wildlife Center

Harvey the Hurricane Hawk




PictureHarvey the Hurricane Hawk
Harvey is a hawk that dodge the winds of the hurricane by flying into a local cab in Houston.  The cab driver let him stay a day or two.  Then he safely delivered Harvey into the skilled hands of someone who works for the TWRC Wildlife Center in Houston.  After Harvey was examined, it was discovered that he does have an injury which is probably why he was not flying away from the threat of the hurricane.  He would have surely perished in the hurricane if he did not take shelter in that cab.  

Hey look its Harvey

Harvey is bringing a lot of attention to all the animals both domestic and wild in the Houston area.  We have seen dogs swimming down the flooded streets turned rivers in Houston.  We have seen animals left chained to trees and poles.  We have seen people carrying dogs and cats to safety.  We have seen animals in all situations in all levels of need.  



Little River Band would like to help TWRC Wildlife Center take care of these animals.

Harvey stole the heart of Little River Band's 
Wayne Nelson



Little River Band has a fan club called the "Night Owls," and their mascot is HOOT- THE OWL after LRB's hit song, "The Night Owls." When Harvey was brought to Wayne Nelson's attention he thought he and his rescue venue TWRC Wildlife Center should be featured in the fund raising campaign.  It just felt right said Wayne Nelson.  

CHECK OUT THE FUND RAISER AND MAKE SURE TO WATCH THE VIDEOS!! Please help if you can.

Little River Band is scheduled to perform at Dosey Doe's on September 10, 2017.  They plan to present a check to TWRC Wildlife Center while they are in Texas.

Since 1999, there's been a change in the band's energy - to get back to writing and recording new material.

And you'll see and hear a band that's committed to making sure every show is special for that audience on that night.”

About Rickey Medlocke
Rickey Medlocke formed the band BLACKFOOT when he was in his late teens. Medlocke was the lead vocalist and front man and kept the band going releasing over 10 hard rock albums. During a brief time in 1971 Rickey left BLACKFOOT to tour with Lynyrd Skynyrd as their drummer until 1973.  He then reformed BLACKFOOT where he remained until the mid 1990's.
During his early time with Skynyrd, Medlocke wrote and recorded with the band.  He sang lead on some songs like: "One More Time", "Preacher’s Daughter", "Lend A Helpin’ Hand", "Wino", "White Dove", "Comin' Home", "The Seasons", "Ain’t Too Proud To Pray," and "You Run Around." 
After a few successful years with Skynyrd, Medlocke went back and reformed BLACKFOOT.  The band began touring and started producing hit songs that included, "Train Train", written by Medlocke’s grandfather, and "Highway Song", written by Medlocke and BLACKFOOT drummer Jakson Spires. 
In 1996 Rickey received a phone call from Gary Rossington inviting him to rejoin Lynyrd Skynyrd as lead guitarist and primary songwriter.  Medlocke continues to be a full time guitarist for Lynyrd Skynyrd touring and recording.  Medlocke is still heavily involved in BLACKFOOT.  He handpicked the next generation of musicians for the band where he mentors, producers and writes for the band.  
In 2008, Medlocke was inducted into the Native American Music Hall of Fame.  In 2013 Rickey Medlocke won a Native American Music Award for Best Instrumental Recording with Homeland Nation Soundtrack at the 14th Annual Native American Music Awards.  Now in 2016 Rickey is featured in this wonderful documentary honoring his heritage in: ‘RUMBLE, The Indians Who Rocked the World.’
