Jolene & Barry first foot The Prairie Star
Northern Nashville 2010
Tickets and accomodation info available at www.nncmc.co.uk
The Line-up of artists includes Kieran Goss, Hank Wangford, John Miller, Finbar Furey, Iain Mathews and many more. The big interest for Country fans has to be a gig from Carlene Carter, who is staying on after appearing at the Belfast Nashville Songwriters Festival at the end of February.
As the daughter of legendary and beloved June Carter Cash and Country Music Hall of Famer Carl Smith, Carlene is heir to one of the richest musical legacies of all time.
Carlene took the Carter sound and name in another direction, to another generation, as she mixed the traditional music of her heritage with the current rock & roll of the late 1970s. Carlene's biggest success came with her Grammy-nominated country hit "I Fell In Love" in 1990. She was married for a time to rocker Nick Lowe, and dueted with Dave Edmunds, on the amazing hit “Baby Ride Easy”
Mundell Music, the force behind Fifestock, and the events at The Inn At Lathones have also lined up five days of song from the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville with a Showcase of Nashville Singer songwriters later in the spring This is a unique event and a first for the World Famous Bluebird Cafe!
Artists will include, Kim Richey, Don Henry, Craig Carothers, Danny Flowers, Andrea Glass and Benny Gallagher.
The dates are Tuesday 13th- Saturday 17th April. Up to date details at www.mundellmusic.com

Phil Vasser for Glasgow
Country song for X Factor winner
The song has already been a No.1 Country hit Stateside for Miley Cyrus. The Hannah Montana star's version had been nominated for a Grammy award next month, but has now been ruled out. The song had been shortlisted for the best song written for motion picture, television or other visual media prize, but because the track was not specifically written for the film, it has now been replaced by another song.
Writer Jessi Alexander was featured in the CMA's New From Nashville show at Celtic Connections a few years back. Although she has not recorded "The Climb" commercially, you can catch a video of her version on You Tube, and hear the song the way it was intended to be sung.
