Here's To The Good Times
Florida Georgia Line
Republic Nashville, 2012
It's been more than two decades since a new country act has captured the public's imagination the way Florida Georgia Line has. Currently in the Top 5 (and poised for #1), the duo's breakthrough single, .Cruise,. hit the Top 10 just 14 weeks after its release, faster than any debut since Brooks & Dunn s .Brand New Man. in 1991. It's the kind of affirmation few young artists ever experience, and yet was just the cap on a year that saw Brian ...

Mumford & Sons
"We are more than excited to release Babel into the world. We had started writing new songs well before we got into the studio to record. At first, we peeled ourselves off the road quite reluctantly. We love playing live, obviously, but it had also become an important part of our creative process, we had been writing and rehearsing in soundchecks, and sort of road-testing new songs on our very gracious audiences. But then we fell in love with ...

Big Machine Records, 2012
Hi, I'm Taylor. I love the number 13. I was born in December on a Christmas tree farm. I like imagining what life was like hundreds of years ago. I have blurry eyesight. My favorite thing in life is writing about life, specifically the parts of life concerning love. Because, as far as I'm concerned, love is absolutely everything. I'm easily excited, thrilled, scared, and shocked. I'm 22 now, but I never stopped jumping up and down when ...

Hip-O Records, 2005
Johnny Cash's death at age 71 on September 12, 2003, nearly four months after the passing of his beloved wife and musical partner June Carter Cash, closed a career spanning nearly an even half a century. It launched a worldwide groundswell of grief and media attention comparable to that for a deceased head of state. Cash was far more than one of country music's greatest stars. While his lonesome baritone defied fad or fashion, his charismatic ...

O Brother, Where Art Thou?
Disenchanted with the daily drudge of crushing rocks on a prison farm in Mississippi, the dapper, silver-tongued Ulysses Everett McGill (George Clooney, THE PERFECT STORM) busts loose. Except he's still shackled to his own chain-mates from the chain gang -- bad-tempered Pete (John Turturro, SUMMER OF SAM), and sweet, dimwitted Delmar (Tim Blake Nelson, HAMLET). With nothing to lose and buried loot to regain -- before it's lost forever in a flood ...
