We hope to see you at one of our Warner Sound events next week, June 5 – 9, inside aVenue located at 120 3rd Avenue South during the 2013 CMA Music Festival. The Warner Sound will feature artist signings and photo ops with artists such as Ashley Monroe, Big & Rich, Blake Shelton, Brett Eldredge, Charlie Worsham, Gloriana, Hunter Hayes, Jana Kramer, Frankie Ballard, Randy Travis, Sheryl Crow, The Farm and more.

Warner Music Nashville’s favorite newcomer Charlie Worsham will be releasing his debut album, titled Rubberband, August 20th on Warner Bros. Records. The 11 track release, which features his first single, “Could It Be,” was entirely co-written by Worsham, and co-produced with Ryan Tyndell (Executive Produced by Arturo Buenahora). "Could It Be," which earned Charlie the title of Country Aircheck’s No. 1 most added male artist for first week radio adds, is currently available on iTunes.

Gloriana celebrates another career milestone as their last single “(Kissed You) Good Night” gets certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (R.I.A.A.) for selling a million copies. “(Kissed You) Good Night,” which was the most played single by a group at Country Radio in 2012, is from the trio’s critically acclaimed second studio album A Thousand Miles Left Behind. Gloriana’s current single “Can’t Shake You” has landed in the Top 20 on the Billboard Country Singles Chart and is steadily climbing.

Blake Shelton has organized and will headline the telethon "Healing in the Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert" on May 29, to take place at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City.

Grammy Award-winning artists Miranda Lambert, Reba and Vince Gill will also perform. Additional guests for the concert will be announced shortly.

The concert will be televised live at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC. It will also air on cable networks Style, G4, Bravo, E! and CMT on either a live or delayed basis.

“The Voice” coach Blake Shelton, as well as advisor Sheryl Crow, are set to perform on the hit NBC musical competition series next week.

Shelton will perform “Boys ’Round Here” on the May 27 edition of the show, while Crow will sing “Easy” on May 28.

“Boys ’Round Here” is the second single released off Blake’s new album, “Based on a True Story …,” which was released earlier this year and features the Pistol Annies.

Actor, comedian and multiple GRAMMY nominated musician, Rick Moranis, is set to release his brand new album, My Mother’s Brisket & Other Love Songs, June 18th on Warner Bros. Records/LoudMouth Entertainment. The album, which is available for pre-order today, allows fans to choose between four special packages featuring My Mother’s Brisket & Other Love Songs on CD and/or digital download.

Jana Kramer’s new single “I Hope It Rains,” from her highly praised self-titled debut album is impacting radio now. While fans can already purchase the single at iTunes, the ACM New Female Vocalist of the Year, recently shot her new video for “I Hope It Rains” just outside of Nashville to be released next month. Kramer is currently on tour with Darius Rucker through June; joining Blake Shelton on the “Ten Times Crazier Tour” this July.

"The goal of starting a high school record label and building a professional recording studio within one year was incredibly ambitious, but, here we are," says Scott Hendricks, Sr. VP of A&R at Warner Music Nashville and GRAMMY, CMA and ACM award-winning producer. "This is truly a testament to a large team of people from all across Nashville who gave above and beyond to see this vision become a reality. These students and the ones to follow now have the tools to hone their craft and pursue their musical dreams. Nashville should be proud."
