Tuesday, 30 September 2014 16:29
With Two Bonus Tracks, Album Available Exclusively at All Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® Locations and CrackerBarrel.com
LEBANON, Tenn. (Sept. 30, 2014) – Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® and fan-favorite country music artist Neal McCoy announce the upcoming CD release of Pride: A Tribute to Charley Pride: Deluxe Edition, which will be available on Nov. 3 exclusively at all 633 Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® locations and online at crackerbarrel.com. The digital album will also be available for purchase at select digital retailers. Pride: A Tribute to Charley Pride: Deluxe Edition contains two exclusive bonus tracks not found on the original edition that was released in 2013 by Slate Creek Records. The album contains McCoy’s versions of 13 songs made famous by the legendary Pride, and will sell for $11.99. Highlights include McCoy performing duets with three of country music’s greatest voices. McCoy sings “Roll On Mississippi” with Trace Adkins, “I’m Just Me” with Raul Malo, and Pride’s signature song (which earned songwriter Ben Peters a GRAMMY Award in 1972 for Best Country song), “Kiss an Angel Good Mornin’” with Darius Rucker.
“I wanted to open people’s eyes about Charley and remind them of all that he has accomplished,” said McCoy. “I thought the best way to do that was to just put his music out there and let people hear what great country music sounds like. I am, and always have been, a huge fan of Cracker Barrel® and I am proud to join their exclusive music program and release a Deluxe Edition of this album so that more people can be reminded of Charley’s amazing musical legacy.” “Cracker Barrel is excited to welcome Neal McCoy to our exclusive music family and join him in his mission to shine a spotlight on his mentor, the great Charley Pride,” said Cracker Barrel Marketing Manager Julie Craig. “We know our guests will enjoy Neal’s album and we are happy to bring it to them in an exclusive Deluxe Edition.”
Hits Billboard’s Top 40 Two Weeks Before Add Date as The Big Revival Picks Up Good Reviews and Strong Sales
Nashville, TENN. (September 29, 2014) - Kenny Chesney heard “Til It’s Gone” and he knew he had the distillation of everything The Big Revival was destined to represent. Not about how far or how much, the surging midtempo David Lee Murphy/Rodney Clawson/Jimmy Yeary song was an invitation to not just being in the moment, but hanging onto the one or ones you love for all its worth.
“Obviously, it’s a song for a guy and girl and that moment in a relationship where you put everything on the table,” Chesney says of the song that sweeps listeners up in another one of the intriguing rhythms on Revival. “But when I heard it, I thought of my audience, of the No Shoes Nation – and what an act of faith it is for us to get together. There are people whose lives might be falling apart, who’ve travelled a hundred miles to get there, who just need to have that night where their faith in living is restored... and if you live like that, I think, the song suggests you can get all the good out of what’s meant to be.”
With “American Kids,” The Big Revival’s debut single, spending two weeks at #1 on the Country airplay charts, Chesney knew he had to come with something that packed the same stopping power. A direct invitation, “Til It’s Gone” is powerful, long on the embrace of the audience and full of the passion he sought to capture on his new record. Chesney chose wisely: two weeks before radio stations were even supposed to add the single, it hit Billboard’s Top 40.
