Hit Nashville songwriter Natalie Hemby jumps into spotlight with 'Puxico'
Huffington Post - about 1 month
You may not have heard of Natalie Hemby, but you have heard her songs. Call her a 19-year overnight success. Miranda Lambert's "White Liar" was co-written with Hemby, who also co-wrote Lady Antebellum's hit "Downtown" with Luke Laird and Shane McAnally and Little Big Town's "Pontoon" with Laird and Barry Dean. She's also sung backup with Lambert and written songs with Kacey Musgraves and Lori Mckenna. A Nashville native (a bit of a rarity these days) and country music writing staple, Hemby finally released her first solo album, "Puxico," earlier this month. It's already receiving a lot of buzz, including on NPR here. And this week "Puxico" hit the Top 10 on the Billboard Americana/Folk Albums chart making Hemby the only female solo artist on the list. Puxico, population 871, is the name of her father's hometown in Missouri and the place where Hemby spent her childhood summers playing on her grandparent's farm, spending time with people who loved her and establishing her mus ...

Dear Congresswoman Blackburn, Please Reconsider Your Stance On Climate Change
Huffington Post - about 1 month
Dear Congresswoman Blackburn, Thank you for your service to Tennessee, the beloved state I have called home for the last 11 years. I truly appreciate and am grateful to you for your service, and I admire your dedication to public service. I was born and raised in a small town in the bootheel of Missouri. Our trips to the big city of Memphis every Christmas to Goldsmith's department store to visit Santa Claus was a major highlight of my year. I grew up going to Kentucky Lake where it meets the Tennessee River. From a young age, I dreamed of playing the Ryman someday and have had the good fortune of doing so many times. And I have deep affection and respect for the many wonderful artists who come from here. Like so many folks of my generation, I was raised at a time when video games and cable TV did not exist. Our entertainment consisted of a bicycle and nature, and my imagination grew monumentally because of my parents' belief that there is no more beautiful exhibition of ...

Beyond Bono: Music and Philanthropy
Huffington Post - about 1 year
I wish I could sing, and belt out every feeling like Nina Simone or sing a love letter to my daughter like Paul Simon. I love music and have long been impressed with the artists that enrich our world in so many ways. A while back I started exploring the idea of writing a thoughtful compilation of the efforts in philanthropy made by the music industry. The deeper I dug, the more I uncovered a world of beautiful people destined to create, heal, and challenge humanity to be better. Musicians give us the soundtrack to our lives and define our times, and can also show us how to truly make an impact by giving back. John Legend performed at an event benefitting nonprofit organization Common Threads. Photo courtesy of Common Threads. This is a topic that I have visited and revisited over the last few years.

Huffington Post - over 1 year
Jeb Bush thinks the country would benefit from a localized recession in Washington, D.C., because nothing closes federal budget deficits like schadenfreude in flyover country. The Treasury Department says there's no way for the U.S. government to avoid defaulting on its debt without Congress raising the debt limit, advising Republicans that creditors won't accept a vial of John Boehner's tears as collateral. And House conservatives have their knives out for Paul Ryan because he's got a liberal immigration record the size of a cantaloupe.

    Crow appeared in the "New Faces" section of Rolling Stone in 1993.
    More Details Hide Details Tuesday Night Music Club featured many of the songs written by Crow's friends, including the second single, "Leaving Las Vegas". The album was slow to garner attention, until "All I Wanna Do" became an unexpected smash hit in the fall of 1994. As she later stated in People, she found an old poetry book in a used book store in the L.A. area and used a poem as lyrics in the song. The singles "Strong Enough" and "Can't Cry Anymore" were also released, with the first song ("Strong Enough") charting at No. 5 on Billboard and "Can't Cry Anymore" hitting the Top 40. Tuesday Night Music Club went on to sell more than 7 million copies in the U.S. and U.K. during the 1990s.

    The self-titled debut album was due to be released on September 22, 1992, but Crow and her label mutually decided that the album did not merit release.
    More Details Hide Details Crow described it as "too produced". However, a handful of cassette copies of the album were leaked, along with press folders for album publicity. This album has been widely dispersed via file sharing networks and fan trading. In the meantime, Crow's songs were recorded by major artists such as Celine Dion, Tina Turner and Wynonna Judd. She then began dating Kevin Gilbert and joined him in an ad hoc group of musicians known to themselves as the "Tuesday Music Club." Group members Gilbert, David Baerwald, and David Ricketts (both formerly of David & David), Bill Bottrell, Brian MacLeod, and Dan Schwartz share songwriting credits with Crow on her debut album, Tuesday Night Music Club. The group existed as a casual songwriting collective prior to its association with Crow but rapidly developed into a vehicle for her debut album after her arrival. Her relationship with Gilbert became acrimonious soon after the album was released, and disputes arose about songwriting credits.
    In 1992, Crow recorded her first attempt at a debut album with Phil Collins' record producer Hugh Padgham.
