NASHVILLE, TN (November 19, 2012) – Creative “sparks” flew when members of Country band LiveWire toured Nashville last week to promote their debut Way Out West Records‘ album, LIVIN’ and new single, “Lies.” 
In a 3-day trip packed with interviews and acoustic performances for
some of Nashville’s top movers-and-shakers, the Joplin, Missouri-based
musicians impressed with their refreshing Ozark Mountain firebrand
Country Rock sound and top-notch songwriting skills.

After LiveWire lead singer/acoustic guitarist Andy Eutsler, rhythm guitarist/backing vocalist Danny Bell and bassist Landon Rolfe performed on Bill Cody’s morning show on WSM-AM, the legendary radio and television personality stated: “It’s
often said in Nashville, ‘It all starts with a song.’  That’s what had
me hooked the first time I heard LiveWire’s LIVIN’ CD.  The songs, many
of them originals, immediately set them apart.  “Lies,” “History,”
“Livin’,” “Better”  …one time through and I just had to hear them
again.  They’ve worked hard to hone their craft; it’s obvious they’ve
succeeded.  This is one strong debut!”
In another career highlight, the assembled members performed for radio industry heavyweight Lon Helton and his staff at Country Aircheck.
Following a morning interview with the band members, Matt Bjorke of Roughstock issued a 4-star review of LIVIN’ where he observed that the album “finds
LiveWire showcasing a unique modern Country sound that also feels
timeless.  The lyrics are original and not just same-ol, same-ol
Nashville stuff.  LIVIN’ is one of the year’s better, most-complete
albums.”
During the press junket, the group (which also includes lead guitarist and group founder Bobby DeGonia and fiddle man Cory Shultz
who were unable to make the trip due to personal obligations) was
interviewed by a number of popular television and Internet outlets,
including Inside Music Row, Entertainment Circle Network, Nashville.com, Nashville Country Club, Cyber Country and StageShottz Magazine.
Principal
songwriters Eutsler and Bell — both singled as top-shelf songwriters
in almost every review of LiveWire’s music to date — also met with
several top-level music publishing and songwriting professionals from
the Nashville creative community.  The experience was capped when they
had an evening writing session with their long-time friend 2012 MusicRow “Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year,” Johnny Bulford
(“A Woman Like You” by Lee Brice). LiveWire’s relationship with the
singer/songwriter dates from when Bulford won the top prize over
LiveWire and a field of other hopefuls at the 2009 “Colgate Country Showdown”
held at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. In the ensuing years, the band
and the singer/songwriter have become friends and supporters; LiveWire
included three of Bulford’s compositions on LIVIN’.  
LiveWire is currently performing shows in their region and preparing for a Midwest radio tour.

About LiveWire:
Since
forming in the mid-’90s, LiveWire has forged a reputation as one of the
top-draw live acts in the Midwest by regularly packing venues in the
band’s home state of Missouri and in the surrounding states of Oklahoma,
Kansas and Arkansas.  Along the way, this homegrown talent has taken
the members of the sextet across America opening for Country superstars
including Toby Keith, LeAnn Rimes, Montgomery Gentry, Diamond Rio and
Kix Brooks.  The group experienced a brush with the “big time” as
finalists in the 2009 Colgate Country Showdown.  LiveWire released a
self-titled EP in 2011 which included its debut radio single, “Tater
Fed,” a stirring backwoods rocker that quickly became the band’s anthem.
 After signing with Way Out West Records in late 2011, LiveWire
released a video for “Tater Fed” and a benefit single and video of
“Miracle Of The Human Spirit,” which benefited the group’s
tornado-ravaged hometown of Joplin, Mo.  LiveWire’s music has found
success at Country radio, both in the U.S. and in Europe, and its videos
have received airplay on CMT Pure, The Country Network, Yallwire and
other outlets.
