When speaking about the single, Jansen’s Jamz wrote “Taking the classic country twang, giving it a modern twist and telling a relatable love story, her new single is filled with raw, foot-tappin’ fun. Bursting with a jubilant melody of invigorating drums, howling guitars and joyous organ, the lively track pulls you on to the dance floor. And with her high-spirited vocal power adding a bit of sass, this country hoe-down will still be enjoyed the morning after.”

Today’s Country Music Magazine added “Finding your niche among a crowded country music scene is no easy task for an independent artist, and while there are no clear-cut blueprints for it, Maddie Leigh sticks her neck out on the line to take a solid risk with Morning After.”

In addition, Fierce & Fabulous Revolution also posted a glowing review, stating “Throughout this song, Maddie delivers a vibrant performance, which perfectly highlights the passionately characteristic tones within her angelic harmonies.”

“I really loved writing this song and the video was so much fun to shoot, especially with it being a comedic take on a one night stand,” Maddie explains.

She and her two younger sisters grew up surrounded by horses, cats and dogs, cultivating her love for animals and the outdoors.

COUNTRY SINGER CHANCE MOORE RELEASES NEW SINGLE “A LITTLE BIT OF MISSIN’ YOU”

Nashville, TN (September 23, 2022) – Country music singer/songwriter and Mississippi native Chance Moore recently released his new single called “A Little Bit of Missin’ You.” You can listen to the song HERE!

With tender lyrics like I’ll do what I have to do, to spend my life loving you, “A Little Bit of Missin’ You” brings a traditional country style, combined with Chance’s smooth, strong baritone.

“The past few years, I let a whole lot of things distract me from my dream of music,” Chance explains. “I put it on the back burner and just worked all the time.  Though my business has become a success, music has been there constantly tugging at my heart, not wanting me to let go.  And, if I’ve realized one thing, it’s that if you try to run from what you’re meant to do in life, you’ll be miserable everyday of it.  Now, I plan on running the right direction.”

About Chance Moore:
From the time he was just a kid, Chance fell in love with country music. He grew up listening to his heroes in the 90’s, like George Strait, Alan Jackson and Randy Travis – but, the first time he heard Hank Williams, he was hooked. “I remember it like it was yesterday,” he said. “I was at the local drugstore in my hometown and saw one of Hank’s albums in there.  I talked my grandpa into carrying me back to buy it. I was mesmerized by how Hank could make you feel exactly what he was feeling through his songs. So, not long after, I bought another one, and another, and then another one.”

As time went on and he moved off to college, he began to dig into songwriting. After college and over the next several years, Chance worked different jobs to get by as he honed his craft for singing. It was just a few years ago that Chance decided that if a career in music is what he wanted, then it was time to pick himself up and get after it.

Chance started singing for the first time in church. As time went on, Chance moved off to college and worked different jobs to get by as he honed his craft for singing. “I knew in my heart I wanted to pursue music, but another part of me knew that I needed to take the time to hone my craft.” He began digging into the music of Merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings. “It really stood out me the smoothness of Merle’s delivery and how you could understand every word he sang.  And, I was really impressed with the power and depth of Waylon’s voice…so, I think I found my space somewhere in between.”

Soon, Chance started making frequent trips to Nashville. It was there that, through a friend, he met Chris Latham – a Grammy winning producer – and together they produced Chance’s self-titled debut EP.  Chance is also a writer himself, penning the last song on the album. “It was one of the first country songs I wrote, and it sums up who I am as a whole. I really enjoy song writing, and I look forward to recording more original material in the future,” he said.

Chance has opened for country music superstars like T. Graham Brown, Diamond Rio, The Kentucky Headhunters, and James Otto. Many miles, late nights, and struggles have brought Chance to this point in his career. “I am anxious for what the future holds and ready for wherever the music takes me. If you like traditional country, then look no further!”

JUSTINE BLAZER RELEASES OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “NEVER GET AWAY”

“This song is a rockin’, bluesy anthem written by Lou Molitch and I,” Justine explains. “It’s about ‘us musicians’ having a love/hate relationship with the music industry. This song features Natalie Jean on vocals, Kitt Wakeley on piano and Kerry Adams on guitar. We love the music-making part and hate the industry aspect…but in the end, we can never get away.”

She continues, “We filmed this video in Printers Alley in downtown Nashville. Even when our videographer, Mexx Heart, was filming, we experienced what this entire song embodies! From getting yelled at by residents because ‘the music was too loud,’ to patrons mocking us – we experienced it all.  In the video, we tried to display four examples of some things we deal with on a regular basis: asking us to play for free and for exposure only, men trying to grab at us while we’re trying to head to a show, showing up to find the venue is closed, and having people making fun of us.  But, we love the music and have that passion. I hope people see the energy in this video and dig the song!”

The album has been receiving rave reviews from fans, radio and press, and has been featured in publications like Billboard Magazine, Spinex Music, Broadway World, Nash in Tune, The Sounds Won’t Stop and more. She was also featured on the cover of Lazie Indie Music Magazine‘s August edition.

BRANDON BLACKBURN RELEASES DEBUT COUNTRY SINGLE “472”

Nashville, TN (September 21, 2022) – Country rocker Brandon Blackburn recently released his debut single “472.” You can listen to the song HERE!

With spellbinding lyrics like my gypsy soul rolls from town to town, with different faces and different crowds, all my life I’ve never known someone to miss me when I’m gone, “472” describes a bittersweet romance for a touring artist.

“I wrote 472 about a long distance relationship that I was in, as I was seeing someone in Nashville at the time,” Brandon explains. “Being a musician, I’m always on the road performing. I absolutely love traveling and playing in places I’ve never been, but once I started seeing this girl, I found that instead of wanting to go on the road to these new places, all I wanted to do was make the long lonely drive to Tennessee. Those 472 miles from Orange Beach to Nashville were the only stretch of road I cared about. They gave me the inspiration to write my first original song and I hope the audience enjoys it as much as I do.”

About Brandon Blackburn:
Brandon Blackburn has loved music for as long as he can remember. Born in Memphis, Tennessee, he and his family moved all around the country during his childhood while his father attended medical school. “My father played guitar growing up and was really into the 80’s hair metal. He definitely gave me the passion I have for music and the love for that era of music definitely got passed down to me.”

After getting his first guitar as a Christmas present in third grade, Brandon’s father taught him the basic chords. Before long, he had mastered their favorite song – “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.” Heavily influenced by the likes of Eric Church, Poison, Nelly and Matchbox 20, Brandon has cultivated his own unique sound by combining modern country with a hint of alternative rock.

In 2016, Brandon graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Mississippi. He received his bachelor’s degree in business administration, with an emphasis on finance and risk management. He credits his college years for giving him the confidence to perform on stage. “I would go out on Wednesday nights, get liquored up, and hit karaoke night. That’s where I found the nerve, I guess you would say, to start singing in front of other people.”

“I’m a jokester, so I’m always giving corny toasts and engaging with the crowd by making them laugh, making them drink, etc. I absolutely love taking requests and no request is too out there. At my shows, I’ll go from Bon Jovi and Alan Jackson to Prince and Slipknot…I’ve even busted out some SpongeBob SquarePants a time or two!”

Over the last four years, Brandon has been performing at local bars all over the gulf coast and, most recently, the entire southeast.  In 2021, he was awarded the honor of “Best Country Performer” by Lagniappe Magazine, a Mobile-based magazine that focuses on South Alabama.

In July of 2022, he finished writing his first original song and released “472” on September 21st. You can follow Brandon on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and Spotify.
