AMANDA McCARTHY RELEASES NEW SINGLE “DON’T STOP ME”

Nashville, TN (March 16, 2022) – Nashville based singer/songwriter Amanda McCarthy recently released her new single “Don’t Stop Me.” You can listen to the song HERE!

Known for her powerful vocals and lyricism, Amanda has a unique ability to connect emotionally with her fans. With empowering lyrics like packing up my bags and I’m leaving today, I don’t got time for that, and if you don’t like what I say, don’t stop me as I’m walking away, “Don’t Stop Me” is sure to be an energizing anthem to all who listen.

“I wrote Don’t Stop Me with my friend Ty Openshaw prior to moving to Nashville,” Amanda explains. “Funny enough, what we wrote the song about initially revolved around a situation in his life. But, when I moved to Nashville and I started playing this song at rounds, the song grew to mean a lot to me and my complicated relationship with my hometown that I had just left behind. I love my home state of New Hampshire, but growing up in the specific town I’m from, I carried a lot of mixed feelings due to trauma, lack of support in school, and always feeling like my music career was never taken seriously – even as I was seeing success in Boston and NYC. Moving to Nashville was a huge step in my healing and leaving those feelings behind, which is why this song is so special as my Nashville debut, the first song I’m releasing since moving here.”

With relatable lyrics like now it’s time one of us learns to say goodbye, no more maybe next time, “No More” is sure to tug on the heartstrings of listeners.
“It’s an interesting story actually,” Trace explains. “This song came about from a challenge, versus some inspirational hook that popped in my head at 3AM. I’ve been blessed to have built several relationships with artists, writers, and publishers over the years which has developed into good friendships. During a publisher meeting, my friend, Butch Baker, gave me a challenge of writing my favorite 90’s song into a modern lyric…up-tempo, of course, and with an intriguing story line that keeps the listener wondering what happens next.  I wanted to challenge myself to grow as a writer and an artist. This has proven to be an incredible experience with releases from other artists like Carrie Cunningham (“All Over Me”) and Jackson Snelling from American Idol (“Forgot I Was Forgetting”) over the past year.  It’s really solidified how much I love the art of writing and I have songs that just resonate with me personally that I want to release, too.”

About Trace Thompson:
Singer/Songwriter Trace Thompson is based out of Greenwood, IN, but travels to Nashville, TN monthly for co-writes & shows.  Trace really jumped into the artist lane in 2018 when he released his debut album Get It Right, which landed on nationally syndicated radio, as well as earning him over 30 award nominations across multiple platforms resulting in 6 different awards since the release.  Trace has performed on hundreds of stages to an audience of thousands, with over a dozen national acts including Randy Houser, Midland, Chase Rice, Dillon Carmichael, Billy Dean, Neal McCoy, Colt Ford, and Justin Moore.

COUNTRY DUO, WESTER, RINGS IN THE NEW YEAR WITH “ROOFTOP PARTY”

Nashville, TN (December 31, 2021) – It’s time to ring in the new year Nashville Style! Country music recording artists and dynamic sibling duo Wester recently released their second single Rooftop Party – a high energy, contagious song that everyone is invited to sing along to. You can listen to the song HERE!

With rowdy lyrics like I maxed out my credit card, don’t know how or why, a couple tattoos and a bunch of uber rides, “Rooftop Party” is the perfect song to blast while celebrating with friends.

“This is a wild story but it’s the truth,” Pearl Clarkin explains. “Rafe and I are here in Nashville working on a music career and going to college. Nashville has a scene that you will not find going on anywhere else. Last Saturday night, Rafe and I were in the car going on a late Chick-fil-A dinner run and we got a call from a famous producer who works in LA and Nashville. He said Pearlie the party is at Aldean’s Rooftop tonight. Come on down and text me. I’ll have security bring you up. It was me, Rafe, the producer and the world’s most famous singer in the middle of about 20 people, who have flown to Nashville from all over the world to be at this rooftop party. This goes on every weekend on Broadway – it’s fun and it’s wild, so Rafe wrote a song about it. One day I will write a book and tell my stories. But for now our song names no names.”

“The thing about writing a song is you can tell the story of what’s happening,” Rafe Wester continues. “What’s happening now is the Nashville scene – its changing and evolving with a new generation. When Hank Williams wrote Jumbalaya, it was about the country party scene of his day. You can still listen to his song and catch the vibe. I wrote Rooftop Partyso I could share what the move is going into 2022. If we’re lucky, this is how we spend our Saturday nights. But, you have to have an invite. Our song Rooftop Party is everyone’s invite to this party. Come on up!”

About Wester:
Rafe Wester grew up with an uncanny resemblance to Randy Travis. People would ask, Do you sing country music?

Pearl Clarkin has been singing and writing songs since childhood. At age 12, she was recruited by American Idol for its training camp. By 14, she had been named one of the top unsigned artists in the country by CMT. The invitations to come sing in Nashville came streaming in and by 16, Pearl was traveling on weekends to sing at a Hard Rock Cafe Nashville for a weekly showcase. By the time Pearl enrolled at Belmont University, the whole family decided to move from Pensacola Beach to Nashville.

Pearl knew Rafe had a beautiful bass voice, so when he was 15 she signed him up to sing at church. But, while Pearl put her music before everything, Rafe always seemed to have something else to do. When Rafe turned 18, he officially got bitten by the “music bug” and also began studying at Belmont University.

When the Covid-19 pandemic hit and the two siblings found themselves in the house together 24/7, Pearl taught Rafe how to play the guitar. They began to write songs about the wild and crazy Nashville scene, North Florida, alligators, crawfish boils, the beach, and the farm. A year later when the restrictions were lifted, they took their 40 songs and toured the country, singing over 50 shows in 2021.

In August 2021 Wester released their first single called “Redneck Rollercoaster” – a song dedicated to fun times singing on Lower Broadway in Nashville. The following November, they released their cover of the Christmas hit “Jingle Bell Rock,” which received more than 11,000 views on YouTube.

Look for a very big 2022 as these two kids plan to release four more songs and sing another 50 gigs around the country and who knows what else. The energy and enthusiasm is on full blast. Wester is off to a great start!
