Statement from Bonnie Brown of The Browns

It comes with great sadness that I have been diagnosed with Stage 4 Adenocarcinoma Right lung cancer. I have recently undergone tests to determine the best type of treatment for this horrible disease. This news came as a shock to our family as we are still mourning the loss of my big brother, Jim Ed, who passed away from the same cancer in June. As Jim Ed said at the announcement of our induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame earlier this year, ‘Cancer is no fun,’ and I agree.

I have full faith in my oncologist and the many specialists at CARTI in Little Rock, and I trust in them to determine the best path to my full recovery. I am surrounded by the love and support of my family and I am determined to live many more years.

Prayers and good wishes are always welcome. Should anyone want to send a “get well” card, please mail to: PO Box 233, Dardanelle, Arkansas, 72834-0233. 9-28-15

Country Fix Hosts World Premiere Of Denny Strickland's Latest Video, "Waymore's Blues," Today

Nashville, TN (September 28, 2015) -- Popular television show Country Fix will host the world premiere of Denny Strickland's acoustic video, "Waymore's Blues" on Monday, September 28.  Part of THE DIVE SESSIONS, the classic Country cover of original "outlaw" Waylon Jennings' much-loved ode to Jimmie Rogers and women is one of three music videos Denny filmed under the guidance of producer/director Brian Harstine (Dolly Parton, Ke$ha) at a popular Nashville "dive bar" called Springwater.  Strickland wanted to pay tribute to artists who had inspired his career, and this endeavor offered the perfect vehicle.  "I've been really lucky, but so far my hits have been in a more contemporary vein," notes the talented newcomer.  "The SESSIONS are stripped down and raw - and they are all more traditional in style."  With subdued lighting and tight camera shots, the clip shows Denny exuding his natural magnetic intensity, and accompanied by only a guitarist.   





Nashville, TN (September 16, 2015) - THE BOOT will host the global premiere of Erica Nicole's powerful "I'm Making Mine" video today.  The multi-talented Country newcomer not only directed the filming, she crafted the treatment, acted, and performed in the video as well.  Shot at various locations in Thomaston, Georgia under the guidance of Pulitzer Prize-nominated photographer and Producer Shane Durrance, the video shows a marriage broken by faithlessness - and portrayed in vignettes of guilt, anger, loss and separation.  "It was fascinating seeing it all come to life," admits Erica Nicole.  "We worked hard to show a range of emotions while conveying the message to be true to yourself - and to never let anyone else compromise your happiness."
