COUNTRY NEWCOMER JORDAN ANDERSON PERFORMS TO PRESERVE HISTORY 


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 8, 2014) - For those that have heard artist Jordan Anderson's music, it's clear she has quite the voice. But to those attending the Tips for Tuscaloosa event at Billy's Sports Grill on Wednesday night in Northport, it became evident the Kent Wells Productions artist has quite the heart as well.



Joining several other songwriters, Anderson performed originals "Please Don't", "American Dream" and "Started With a Smile" to raise money for the Tuscaloosa County Preservation Society - a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving Tuscaloosa County's heritage. Hosted by fellow artists Hope Cassity and Victoria Camp, the round is one of many in Cassity's Tips 4 Our Town campaign, which connects live music events with non-profits to raise money for community needs.



"I have such a passion for both music and giving back - to pair the two only seems natural," said Anderson. "I'm thankful I was asked to be a part of an event benefiting such a great town."



Anderson's new single "American Dream" released to country radio last week. Her previous single "Please Don't" hit top 30 on the Music Row chart, landing at #28 after just 13 weeks.

ARTIST LINDSAY LAWLER TO KICK OFF SECOND TRUCK STOP TOUR  


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 5, 2014) - "On the road again..." Country recording artist and Highway Angel program spokesperson Lindsay Lawler will hit the road later this month for her second consecutive Highway Angel Truck Stop Tour - and TravelCenters of America LLC (TA) has just announced its reprised role as host to this year's series of events. The tour, designed to promote a better trucking industry image through the exposure of the Truckload Carriers Association's (TCA) Highway Angel program, will kick off later this month at the Knoxville West TA location on May 21st beginning at 9 am. Spanning five months (the tour will wrap in late September), performances will also take place in Nevada, Alabama, Virginia, New York and Minnesota.
 
"The TCA's goal of putting the spotlight on great deeds by the professional truck driving community through the Highway Angel program is consistent with what we do each day," said Tom O'Brien, President and CEO of TravelCenters of America, LLC. "Like the TCA, we promote all that is good about our industry and Lindsay's concerts provide a way for all of us to say 'thank you' to our customers through her unique musical and vocal talent."
 
"We saw a lot of success with last year's tour," said Lawler of the tour's initial run in 2013. "We had so many drivers come to each location, thrilled that they hadn't been forgotten and feeling like finally someone noticed and was rewarding their hard work. It's a great feeling being able to provide free music and entertainment to some of the hardest working men and women our nation has to offer."
 
Another tour objective for the country artist? Rebuilding relations between the trucking and country music industries.
 
"Country music and trucking used to be synonymous with one another. While the country music industry continues to sing of the hardworking, middle-class man or woman just trying to live the American dream - by all means a definition of those working in the trucking industry - the relationship between the two declined at some point. I'd love to see it prosper once again."
 
Each tour stop features an hour-long acoustic performance by Highway Angel spokesperson Lindsay Lawler from atop her flatbed truck stage (provided by Fikes Truck Line), as well as a live broadcast radio component. All tour stops are posted on the tour's official website,
www.truckstoptour.com, and are subject to change.
 
Launched in August 1997, the Highway Angel program has recognized hundreds of drivers for the unusual kindness, courtesy, and courage they have shown others while on the job. To nominate a driver or learn more about the program and its honorees, visit the Highway Angel Web page at

RUSSELL CROWE'S 'TONIGHT SHOW' PERFORMANCE BEING COMPARED TO ANGEL MARY AND THE TENNESSEE WEREWOLVES 



NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 2, 2014) - What could a famous Aussie actor and a country rock trio from Tennessee possibly have in common? More than one would think, as it turns out. Russell Crowe's Thursday Tonight Show performance of Johnny Cash's Folsom Prison Blues - the same song Angel Mary and the Tennessee Werewolves released for their last single - is being compared to the group's version by country radio stations nationwide.
 
"Don't quit your day job, luckily it pays well," said K99 Asheville personality Roger McCoy of Crowe's performance. "If you want to hear a great cover of Folsom Prison, then make sure to check out rising country trio Angel Mary and the Tennessee Werewolves."

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 31, 2014)
 - Like a true wolf pack supporting their own, country's latest trio Angel Mary and the Tennessee Werewolves (AMTW) was 
on-hand to support veteran broadcaster and Country Radio Hall of Fame member Ed Salamon during a recent book signing at Two Old Hippies Nashville for his new book,WHN: When New York City Went Country. In the book, the former WHN program director chronicles the station's move from a middle-of-the-road format to "Easy Lovin' Country" and eventual rise to the most listened to country station of all time.

"What a great read with great behind the scenes stories," said Antoine Wolf, singer and bassist for AMTW. "And what a bold move - daring to bring country music to NYC and succeeding at becoming #1 in the business! With that kind of attitude, as well as the support he's shown us over the years, we consider Ed a lifetime member of our wolf pack!"

The relationship between Salamon and AMTW has always been one of mutual respect and support: 
He praised the trio at his signing, saying, "That Angel Mary and the Tennessee Werewolves makes me wish I was back in radio so I could play their music." 
 
Recently named the new face of fellow recording artist John Rich's (Big & Rich) new clothing line, Redneck Riviera, AMTW is preparing for the release of their yet-to-be-announced new single, due at radio in late spring. The trio will also be kicking off their 2014 tour, which includes two New York performances - Thunder Bash (presented by Thunder 102) at The Monticello Casino and Racetrack on April 26th, and the Hudson Valley Ribfest (presented by 107.3 WRWD) on August 15th.
