Tonja Rose Celebrates Chart Debut & New Album Release

Written by scoopsnews on June 8, 2018 – 9:39 am -

(Pictured: Album Cover for ‘Me, Jesus & The Highway’ – High Rez 3000×3000 Available Upon Request)

Franklin, TN (June 8th, 2018) – July will be a special month for Tonja Rose and BlueGrass Valley / Mansion Entertainment as there will not only be a chart debut single but the debut of a new album.

 
“When The Mountain Can’t Be Moved” will debut in the Singing News Bluegrass Gospel Top 10 for the month of July. The single was released prior to the completion of Tonja’s new album and was co-written by Tonja and John Mathis. The idea for the song began through an exchange of emails before the concept of doing an album was conceived. The single has also landed in the SGN Scoops Christian Country Top 40 with the official video release receiving organic response through social media and is scheduled airing on several national television programs including Harmony Road TV. 
 
After months of planning, writing songs, selecting material and recording in the studio, the debut album from Tonja Rose official will release during the month of July. ‘Me, Jesus & The Highway’ is being released by Mansion Entertainment on its BlueGrass Valley label and will be available through all world wide digital outlets on July 6, 2018, including digital streaming outlets. Mansion Entertainment digital releases are distributed through The Orchard, a division of Sony.

The new album was co-produced at Mansion Entertainment by Tonja Rose and John Mathis and contains 12 songs from songwriters such as Tonja, Erin Ashleigh, Jim Gaines, Sandy Carroll, Karen Staley, Tricia Walker, AJ Masters (songs recorded by Faith Hill, The Oak Ridge Boys, John Berry, etc), Ken Harrell, Phil Everly (of the Everly Brothers), John Mathis and Mark Narmore. The title cut of the album was co-written by Tonja, John Mathis and Mark Narmore (songs recorded by Josh Turner, Craig Morgan, Shenandoah and many others). This trio of songwriters also penned another song for the album, “Walking Each Other Home”, which features a duet between Tonja and Benjy Gaither. ‘Me, Jesus & The Highway’ also includes a few favorite traditional songs like “Jesus On The Mainline”, “Pass Me Not” and “Softly and Tenderly”.

Label manager John Mathis commented, “Tonja has been in Nashville for several years, she’s had songwriting deals and been a part of other vocal endeavors. I always thought her voice would be a great fit for Bluegrass Gospel and it is! I think vocally and artistically she has found a home. Tonja is not only a great singer, she is also a great songwriter. It’s obvious she worked hard on crafting and selecting the songs for this recording. My good friend George Hairr was involved in some of the post production work and after spending the evening at the studio working on the album he called me the next morning and said ‘John, there are some great songs on here!’ I always consider an unsolicited opinion like that from an industry peer, who has heard thousands and thousands of songs, a huge compliment. I think the songs on this album contain messages that will connect and resonate with listeners across the Bluegrass and Southern Gospel genres … and beyond.”

Tonja recently joined Devin O’Day on The Legendary 650 WSM to talk about the album and will be the special guest artist at several concerts for the Multi-Dove Award Winning group, Selah, throughout the summer.

Congratulations In Order at Hey Ya’ll Media

Written by scoopsnews on June 7, 2018 – 3:48 am -

 

Heflin, Alabama (June 6, 2018) – Hey Y’all Media is thrilled to announce that several of their artists are Top Five Diamond Award Nominees. Congratulations are in order to ten Hey Ya’ll Media artists.

The Pine Ridge Boys are known for a rich quartet sound that captivates an audience. In 1963, the Pine Ridge Boys began a journey that is still going strong today. These men are nominated for Quartet Of The Year.

In the category of Duet Of The Year, the top five nominees included Josh and Ashley Franks. “Other than the fact that Ashley is my daughter, I have watched how God has blessed their ministry and I am so proud of both of them,” states Vonda Easley, owner of Hey Ya’ll Media. Most recently, Josh and Ashley came to yet another season of change in life, as God called them to serve as Pastor of People’s Tabernacle Church in Savannah, Tenn. They have been serving as Lead/Senior Pastors since 2015.

Breakthrough artist, Chronicle, made the top five in three categories. These artists are nominated for Sunrise Duet Of The Year and Sunrise Song of The Year with, “Where Did The Wind Go?” In addition, Tim Kinchen is nominated for the Anthony Burger Instrumentalist of the Year. Chronicle is from Denham Springs, Louisiana. Tim and Melissa Kinchen have one mission and that is to tell everyone through song and word about Jesus. God is truly blessing this group.

Day Three has been nominated in the top five Sunrise Trio Of The Year Category. Day Three is making waves in the industry with their current single, “I’m Not A Failure,” penned by Joseph Habedank and Rodney Griffin. Although this trio is a fairly new group, each member has a rich heritage in gospel music.

Brothers 4 (Bros. 4) is a Southern Gospel Quartet from Central Mississippi. Bros.4 offers high energy performances with tight harmonies and quality vocals. We are thrilled that they were nominated for Sunrise Quartet Of The Year.

Hailing from the beautiful Blue Mountains west of Sydney, Australia, Peter Christie is an award-winning Country Gospel and Bluegrass artist. As a Christian man, the music that Peter writes and performs reflects his strong faith and his family values. Congratulations, Peter, on your nomination for Bluegrass Male Vocalist Of The Year.

In the category of Christian Country Group of the Year, we are blessed to have two Hey Y’all Media artists. McKay Project from Columbus, Mississippi has had a stellar year! Their most recent achievement  was their very first Number 1 song, “Taking Me Home.”  Be watching for Big New Things for this group.

In just a short amount of time, MARK209 has garnered the interest of the industry, therefore it was no surprise to hear of their nomination for Christian Country Group Of The Year. MARK209 consists of Nathaniel Justice, Jym Howe, Jimmy Reno, and Ray Woconish; four superbly distinctive and recognizable voices blended together to bring fun, encouragement, inspiration, and an interactive worship experience to all ages.

Corey Pearson started playing music at eight years old and started playing drums for his mom and dad of The Diplomats when he was 12. To name the instruments he can play would take too long to list, but he can take over any part that is needed. Congratulations Corey for being nominated in the top five for the Anthony Burger Instrumentalist Of The Year.

And last but not least is Eagles Wings. This multi-talented group is nominated in several categories, including:
BLUEGRASS GOSPEL SONG OF THE YEAR for “A Rugged Cross And An Empty Grave”
BLUEGRASS GOSPEL MALE ARTIST OF THE YEAR: Matthew Wilson
BLUEGRASS GOSPEL FEMALE ARTIST OF THE YEAR: Debra Wilson
BLUEGRASS GOSPEL GROUP OF THE YEAR: Eagle’s Wings

“Eagle’s Wings is one of the premier Bluegrass groups in gospel music. I am honored to work with them. All of these artists are family,” states Vonda.

The Diamond Awards are presented by SGN Scoops Magazine. You can visit www.sgnscoops.com to place your vote for your favorites.

“This Is Your Now” By Jonathan Dale -Single Drops TODAY

Written by scoopsnews on January 29, 2018 – 4:38 am -

JONATHAN DALE – THIS IS YOUR NOW – PRESS RELEASE –   

In the summer of 2008 CMT (Country Music Television), along with producers of American Idol, Fremantle Media, began production for a new singing competition reality TV Show entitled, “Can You Duet”. Season one produced America’s sweethearts “Joey +  Rory”, and also “Caitlin and Will”, and “Kate and Kasey”. The love story between Joey and Rory Feek went on to touch the hearts of millions across the nation.  

 

In 2009, the casting had begun for Season Two of CMTs Can You Duet, auditions were held in Nashville, Tennessee at the famous Wildhorse Saloon on Broadway. Jonathan Dale Cox and Brandon Green had made it through the first round with different duo partners, and had yet to meet.  

 

Shortly into round two, Brandon’s cousin, and Jonathan’s friend were eliminated, which led Dale and Green to be partnered together by celebrity judges Big Kenny of Big and Rich, Scott Borchetta owner and CEO of Big Machine Label Group, and legendary Country Music icon, Naomi Judd of The Judd’s. Jonathan and Brandon together formed the all American Male Country Music duo, “JB Rocket”.  

 

Getting their name from their initials and a coincidental pair of the same Rocket Dog shoes that they both were wearing on the day they met each other, JB Rocket quickly became one of America’s favorite “duos” on the reality TV Singing Competition.  

 

JB Rocket completely dominated season two with performance like, “Neon Moon”, and “More Than a Memory”. Jonathan and Brandon advanced into the finale and final round and then competed against Joshua Scott Jones and Meghan Linsey (The Voice), together known as Steel Magnolia. 

 

JB Rocket finished on season two of CMTs Can You Duet as the first runner up and signed a major record deal with the Valory Music Group of Big Machine Records. A few years later Jonathan and Brandon walked away from their record deal and went into separate careers.  

 

Since then, Jonathan Dale of JB Rocket has been awarded the Carolina Music Awards Country Male Vocalist of the Year, released two albums, and multiple single tracks, married his best friend Courtney, and is a father to his newborn daughter, Presley Jane. His Christian radio single, “I’m Still Standing” reached the top 80 at #66 in the national Gospel Charts, in Singing News Magazine. 

 

Jonathan’s new single, “This is Your Now” will be released to iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music, and all other social media music outlets on January 29th, 2018.  

 

“This is Your Now” is all about living life to the fullest and embodying the power to keep trying and keeping your faith. I believe in raising a generation of risk takers, and people who fight for what they believe in and what they want to see come to pass. We are the author of the story of our lives, what happens next is up to you.” Says Jonathan Dale
