BLUE JEAN GIRL placed in a movie!!

14 year old singing sensation Kelsey K’s song Blue Jean Girl had been placed in an upcoming summer movie, to be announced later this winter. The song, co-written by Nichols and Myers, is really an autobiographical song about Kelsey’s life in her native Iowa, and is the title of her first full length CD. Stay tuned for much more from this dynamic artist this year!!

Sessions, sessions, sessions!!

With January almost in the bag already, The holidays are truly over for Music City!! The town notoriously shuts down for most of the first month while artists are finishing their vacations, but there was no rest for team Robby Johnson!! During the Christmas season, Robby’s first single South Of Me, from his upcoming album, of the same name, took off like a snow sled and after only 8 weeks....four of them during the holidays, is already at #45 on the Music Row Chart and is headed for inclusion on the Mediabase monitored chart! Not bad for a previously unknown country artist from Quebec with no label!! And his music video of the same name has over 2.7 million views!! The CD, produced my Jimmy and Grammy winning songwriter Frank Myers is due out later this year and features 12 original songs, some penned by Johnson himself, as well as Nichols, Myers, and many of Nashville’s most revered songwriters. Her’s hoping for lots of success from Robby!! Check out his debut video here!.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwLeg-_mwtM

Jimmy’s also slated to head back in the studio with The Swon Brothers, who are finishing their debut CD for Sony Nashville. These guys are the real deal, and you can check out their single here...http://www.swonbrothers.com

KT Oslin's back!!

Near the end of 2013, Jimmy had the pleasure of meeting one of country music’s most successful female recording artist, with no less than three Grammy’s and nearly a dozen smash hits to her name, KT broke down so many barriers for women during the 80”s and has become an icon for so many. She abruptly retired from the country music scene, and hasn’t toured in over 25 years!! But that all changed this past November, when she did a sold out performance at Franklin’s iconic Theater south on Music City. With Jimmy as her band leader and keyboardist, along with David Santos of Billy Joel/John Fogerty fame, Dennis Holt, who’s performed with the likes of Kerry Livgren of Kansas and Restless Heart, and Mike Durham, formerly from the Dave Mathews Band, this mighty four piece band proved to be the ultimate in intimate backdrop for KT’s amazing age defying voice. Along with her quick wit, great stories and songs written from her heart, She wove a tapestry of her life in front of an adoring crowd, made up of all ages, who drank her in like a fine wine....though occasionally a sip of beer did cross their lips!! KT now has the bug to perhaps do more shows this year, and has already asked the came band to accompany her if this happens. Keep checking in for updates on possible dates in 2014!!
