Churchs current album, The Outsiders, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart and the Billboard Country Albums Chart earlier this year, and his current hit single Give Me Back My Hometown, is Top 5-and-rising. Eric Church is working on a level that few other country artists of his generation can touch, said Ken Tucker at NPR Music in his review of the album, continuing, Shrewd, defiant, sly and funny, Eric Church has succeeded in what he set out to do: Hes using the power hes accrued from making hit records to make exactly the kind of album he wants, heedless of industry approval. And this is how good he is: Now hell go out and through the singles hell release, the touring hell do and the videos hell make probably turn this personal project into a big commercial deal. The Outsiders deserves nothing less.
The Outsiders is the follow-up to Churchs Platinum-certified album Chief, (named the 2012 Album of the Year by both CMA and ACM, and GRAMMY-nominated for Best Country Album) which featured five Top 20 singles: Homeboy (certified Platinum for sales in excess of one million singles); the Top 10 Like Jesus Does and the Top 5 Creepin (both certified Gold for sales in excess of 500,000 singles each); and two No. 1 hits Drink in My Hand (certified Platinum) and Springsteen (certified Double Platinum for sales in excess of two million singles). Churchs debut album, Sinners Like Me (2006) and his sophomore album Carolina (2009) are both RIAA Gold-certified. Carolina had three hit singles: the Top 10 Hell on the Heart as well as Top 20 hit Smoke A Little Smoke and Top 10 smash Love Your Love The Most, which were both certified Gold. Sinners Like Me spawned three Top 20 singles: How Bout You, Two Pink Lines, and Guys Like Me.
Dwight Yoakam has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide, placing him in an elite group of global superstars. Nearly 40 of Yoakams singles have charted, with 14 peaking in the Top 10, including the hits Honky Tonk Man, Please, Please Baby, Little Ways, I Sang Dixie, It Only Hurts When I Cry, and Fast as You. He is a 21-time nominated, 2-time GRAMMY Award winner. In celebration of his latest critically acclaimed album, 3 Pears, he received the Artist of the Year award at the 2013 Americana Music Honors & Awards ceremony, the most prestigious award offered by the organization. In 2014, Yoakam will appear as a recurring guest star in multiple episodes of the thrilling CBS series, Under the Dome, based on Stephen Kings best-selling novel of the same name.

- Slaid Cleaves
Event on 2014-10-01 19:30:00
Slaid Cleaves spins stories with a novelists eye and a poets heart. Twenty years into his career, the celebrated songwriters Still Fighting the War spotlights an artist in peak form. Cleaves seamless new collection delivers vivid snapshots as wildly cinematic as they are carefully chiseled. Dress William Faulkner with faded jeans and a worn six-string for a good idea. Slaids a craftsman, says Terri Hendrix, who sings harmony on Texas Love Song. He goes about his songs like a woodworker.Accordingly, Cleaves earthy narratives stand oak strong. Men go off to war for a hundred reasons/But they all come home with the same demons, he sings on the albums title track. Some you can keep at bay for a while/Some will pin you to the floor/Youve been home for a couple of years now, buddy/But youre still fighting the war. Few writers frame bruised souls as clearly. Fewer still deliver a punch with such striking immediacy. I started Still Fighting the War four years ago and originally each verse was a separate character, Cleaves explains. Each verse was about getting swindled. One was about the economy, one was about a returning veteran, one was about a broken-up couple. It was too cumbersome, so I focused in on the soldier. The key that made it all work came as I was talking to my friend and occasional co-writer, Ron Coy. A troubled Vietnam vet buddy of his had recently passed away. Ron said, All this time, it was like he was still fighting the war. I knew instantly that was the perfect way to summarize the song.Cleaves delivers equal measures of hope and resignation throughout this 2013 release as life lessons slide subtly through side doors. Normally when I start writing a new batch, a theme starts to emerge after three or four songs, says Cleaves, who built an unlikely success story from scratch after moving to Austin, Texas, from Maine two decades ago. This time around I thought, Im just gonna write where the muse takes me and each song will be its own thing. So I ended up with a CD that has a bit more variety on it compared to my previous releases. Half the songs are about struggle and perseverance and half are all over the place, some tongue-in-cheek stuff, a gospel song, a Texas pride song. Witness deft wordplay on the latter: Your wits as sharp as a prickly pear/The sun shines in your golden hair/Your smile hits me right in the solar plexus, Cleaves sings with a wink in Texas Love Song. Skin as soft as early morning rain/Temper like a Gulf Coast hurricane/I love you even more than I love Texas. Originally, the phrase was I love you almost as much as I love Texas, Cleaves says, because that's about as far as a true proud Texan will go. Then I realized that if I committed the sin of saying I love you even more than I love Texas, it trips off the tongue better. It was a fun little challenge to come up with so many rhymes for Texas.Of course, Cleaves conquered the task. Longtime fans expect nothing less. After all, Still Fighting the War follows the razor sharp songwriters undeniable hat trick Broke Down (2000), Wishbones (2004) and Everything You Love Will Be Taken Away (2009) that established him as a singular storyteller. His golden key: effortlessly shading dark with light. Cue Cleaves excellent double-disc Sorrow & Smoke: Live at the Horseshoe Lounge for inarguable evidence (Drinkin Days, Wishbones, Horseshoe Lounge). You get a lot of the man behind the lyrics, Hendrix says. What you see with Slaid is what you get: He doesnt have the eyes of a cynic. He has optimism about him through a realistic gaze and writes with a wise voice. The Kerrville Folk Festival recognized those intangible qualities long ago when Cleaves won its hallowed New Folk award in 1992. Hes doubled down ever since with literate story songs exponentially more mature and meaningful.Consider one other new high water mark. But they figured it out/And shipped the elbow grease/Down to Mexico/And off to the Chinese, Cleaves sings on the haunting meditation Rust Belt Fields. And I learned a little something 'bout how things are/No one remembers your name just for working hard. Childhood friend Rod Picott co-wrote those potent lines – the duo has split pages on several indelible blue-collar vignettes over the years (Broke Down, Sinners Prayer, Bring It On, Black T-shirt). Slaid is my favorite co-writer, says Picott, who also co-wrote the new albums standout Welding Burns. Hes a smart writer with a gift for wringing the most out of a melody. Slaid understands that the song has to rule. He's patient and unwavering in his pursuit of the best. Cleaves humbly accepts the praise. Despite the odds, through persistence and good fortune I've carved out a niche for myself, he says. You could say I have a Whim of Iron."

Not that long ago, I bought a new house, and signed up for internet. Since getting my internet connection, I have not been very happy with the speed of the internet. I guess there are too many devices on my home network, for this connection speed to be acceptable. But it takes way too long to open a website, and I want to get some information on Champaign high speed internet deals to see if there are any good deals that might be available to me.
All year long I have been looking forward to Summer so I can finally take the vacation that I’ve been dreaming of for months! Ever since I was a child I’ve wanted the chance to visit Malaysia. But growing up with very little money our family wasn’t able to take vacations – unlike a lot of the parents of kids that I was around, my parents had to hold down two jobs each just to be able to afford the school I was in. But, finally, I’m riding in a car rental in Penang at nineteen years old with my parents accompanying me.
Personal education is not something that we should do without. For years I have been self-focused on my own personal need to educate myself; that doesn’t mean I would always have to settle with going to University and paying a great deal of money in order to find knowledge but it does mean that I often have to work that much harder to gain the knowledge I wish to possess. With help from programs like the Singapore MBA, I can easily work toward these goals from home without having to pay so much out of pocket that I taken on the burden of debt.
Debt is going to be end of student loans. With the amount of students finding themselves unable to pay back their loans across the globe (at least those countries who actually force their citizens to pay for a higher education), the burden of debt falls back onto the banks and the government assistance programs which supply the money to these individuals.
I have spent most of my morning trying to locate the best deals for good, quality home owner’s insurance. It has been a lot of work, and I still have not made a whole lot of progress in figuring out the home owner’s policy that I actually want to go with. I was on one site, when I came across a banner that said, “click here for deals“, and so I followed it. I decided that I did not have anything to lose in following the banner. The site that it took me to is a site that apparently allows you to compare different home owner insurance policies, that are offered by different insurance companies in the area.
I am living in the state of Massachusetts, and that is where I also purchased my new home. My family has not moved into the new house yet, but that should be starting to happen in the next couple of days.
I remember my first stock market investment. It was actually a retirement plan at my first real job. They offered a 401k that invested in mutual funds. You could pick the level of risk you wanted to go for. I picked low risk because I did not want to lose money. Nothing came out of my paycheck, it was just part of the benefits of working there. Now that I am older, I have a little money to risk for higher returns. That got me reading a review at http://www.clickmediareviews.com/auto-binary-signals-review.
I was talking to some of my friends about how bad the economy still is. I knew that there were a lot of people that were still losing their jobs in our area and I knew that it was time to try to help those that were down on their luck. My husband has a great job and I felt bad that others were having such a rough time. Finding things like the cheapest internet service was going to help a lot of people who wanted to be able to have access to the internet as they needed it to find a job. I knew that my degree in Communications would help those people who needed some help in finding a job. I could help them with their resumes and I would also be able to help them with their interview skills, I had no problem helping others that were down on their luck.
The people that I talked to told me that they would really like some of our free help. I assembled more than a few people to help them take care of the people that were in desperate need. I heard that there were a lot of people that heard about what we were doing and local business owners said that they wanted to come and interview those that did not have a job. We were talking at a meeting about how much they were going to contribute to those in our community and the business owners said that they felt like it was their job to take care of those in the same community. I heard that the best thing to do was to make it public that we all needed a lot of help and that would get people to come out and volunteer and that was the truth.
I have always lived in the country, so moving to the city was a shock to my system in a number of ways. The traffic was the worst part as well as not being able to go outside and explore acres of land. There were a lot of positive things though. The water was a lot tastier, and I realized I would no longer need to have slow technology. I always had dial up because that was all that was available. That changed though when I found http://www.internetproviders.us/cable-internet-providers/.
I wanted to have all of my utilities working before I moved into our new home, but the Internet was one of the last things that I managed to get turned on. I used the Internet at work to look at my different options, and I was surprised that there was more than one choice that I could decide from.
