About Ned LeDoux:
LeDoux is well respected for his high-energy live shows that mix his western roots with the rock and roll influences he acquired in his youth. He routinely headlines his own shows as well as earning coveted opening slots for Toby Keith, Aaron Watson and Garth Brooks. “We opened for Garth in Indianapolis last year and it was our first football stadium which was crazy,” he says. “When people are coming out to our shows and spending their hard-earned money on a ticket, I don’t want to leave them disappointed. We’re going to give you a show and leave you wanting more. I’m always out of breath and soaking wet when we’re done, but it’s so much fun!”

About Jonah Prill:
On a humble ranch in Montana, surrounded by mountains as far as the eye can see, a 23-year-old rancher by the name of Jonah Prill decided to say ‘hey’ to something other than his horses…and share his music with the world.
Within a matter of months, over a million people across the country and around the world were roped in by his country boy charm and simple way of life. The casanova’s lyrics draw a crowd, that’s for sure, but he is not just any other social media influencer. He is a TikTok cowboy if you will, a TikTok cowboy with a voice that lights a fire like kerosene and words that keep it lit.
And he doesn’t plan to let the fire fizzle out anytime soon.
Though people might be quick to make assumptions about guys like Jonah Prill, this talented singer/songwriter with the undeniable western charm comes from pure country music pedigree, having grown up in the shadow of his famous grandfather Dean Evans. You see, Evans was a country artist himself, having released country songs such as “Lottin Dottin” and playing multiple gigs in Texas before making the ultimate decision to move to Montana to become a cowboy.
Freddy Fender. 15 Years Gone But Never Forgotten. By Tom Bomb for Country Music News International
This past week was the 15th anniversary of Freddy Fender’s passing on October 14, 2006. But his legacy is that of tenacity, self-effacement, and innovation. But it wasn’t an easy road to get there. His life and career consisted of an interesting story involving early success to a prison sentence leading to a lengthy pause in his career to working as a mechanic to becoming the first Tejano country music star.

CD Review: Falk – Nie Wieder Allein (Never Alone Again) – by Antony Bailey for Country Music News International
German country singer-songwriter Sebastian Falk, otherwise known as Falk, released ‘Nie Wieder Allein’ in 2019 alongside Alster Records and translates into English as ‘Never Alone Again’. The six-song album repeatedly touches on sentimental notes and spreads messages of love, hope, despair, and reconciliation – leaving the audience with a concoction of emotions including a sense of dejection combined with a feeling of being elated.

CD Review: Maple & Rye – For Everything – by Ritchie Ritchison for Country Music News International
Con of the Century
Whenever an album comes across my desk for review I take a look at the name of the artist or group and try to imagine what I am about to hear. I had never heard of Maple and Rye but the name sounded fresh and a little nostalgic at the same time and I anticipated an album of unique country music with possibly a little southern rock flavor to spice things up.

CD Review: Charlene Keyes – Better In Boots – by Ritchie Ritchison for Country Music News International
Charlene Keyes started her career out as Charlene Gordon with Log Cabin Christmas and you can still see the video on her youtube page. She also had a guest appearance on Hee Haw singing her original composition “Listen to the Harp Strings Ring” a song she wrote because of her love for the Carter Family and the Autoharp. Charlene is one of the torch bearers of this uniquely American instrument.
