New Dean Owens EP
Inspired by the story of a soldier returning from the front writing to his loved one about how it gets harder to be away from home the closer you get to returning, Dean has written a song that poignantly describes the emotions of those at war and those they love.
The ‘No Man’s Land EP’ arrives appropriately enough in the week of Armistice Day in the year when we remember 100 years since the beginning of The Great War. Backed, with three further war themed songs and with a stunning cover featuring the original painting ‘Sea Of Red’ by Philip Braham . ‘The Closer To Home’ is a true representation of the songwriting talent that has earned Dean high praise:
Recorded in Nashville and produced by Neilson Hubbard (Ben Glover, Kim Richey), ‘Closer To Home’ is taken from the forthcoming album ‘Into The Sea’ .
Dean Owens has been confirmed to appear at Celtic Connections 2015.
New award for Vince Gill
Gill choked up during a video salute aired during the Awards as artists including Rodney Crowell, Merle Haggard, Emmylou Harris, Taylor Swift, James Taylor, and Keith Urban paid tribute to Gill’s artistry and impact on Country Music.
The Irving Waugh Award of Excellence is awarded to an individual who is the originator and caretaker of demonstrated ideas and actions that have dramatically broadened and improved Country Music's influence on a national or international level for the benefit of the industry. It is the intention that these ideas and actions typically will have run a course of years and shall have a proven historical impact on the format.
The Award was created in 1983, when it was presented to its namesake Irving Waugh, a visionary who was instrumental in the creation of the CMA Awards. Since then, the Irving Waugh Award of Excellence has only been presented four times including Frances Preston (1987), a legendary figure in BMI history; Jo Walker-Meador (1991), the Executive Director of the Country Music Association from 1962 to 1991; the iconic Johnny Cash (2003); and longtime, former producer of the CMA Awards, Walter Miller (2009).
Gill has a long history with the CMA Awards himself, including hosting the annual gala 12 times (1992-2003).
Tucker exhibit at Hall Of Fame
Tucker’s story is told through a collection of artifacts that illustrate her tough and tender duality and ahead-of-her-time tenure as a female country crossover star. Gorgeous stage costumes, including several Nudie’s Rodeo Tailor designs from very early in her career and gowns worn at award shows contrast with her numerous National Cutting Horse Association awards and a Harley-Davidson 1992 Screamin’ Eagle— customized in her special hue of pink paint. A copy of the September 26, 1974 Rolling Stone magazine featuring Tucker as the first female country artist to appear on the cover underscores her impact, as do Tucker’s outfit from the 1994 Super Bowl halftime show and a script from her 1981 appearance on an episode of the massively popular TV series The Love Boat.
