Lady Antebellum To Release 747 on 9/30

Lady Antebellum announced this week that their fifth studio album 747 will land in stores on September 30. The album’s sultry lead single “Bartender” is already soaring up the country charts to become one of their fastest rising singles.  Nathan Chapman co-produced the 11-song disc with Lady A for the Capitol Records Nashville release.

“We unanimously knew that our album title had to be 747,” said Lady A’s Hillary Scott. “The track itself has this pushing, driving spirit about it that sums up our attitude right now.  We are pushing ourselves as a band and as songwriters…taking ourselves out of our comfort zone and not taking ourselves too seriously.   There's an urgency and an energy to it that we've never released before."

“We are so ready to get this music out,” continued Charles Kelley. “To get the reaction we’ve gotten from ‘Bartender’ has only made us more fired up about the rest of these songs!”

“We had the opportunity to write with some new songwriters and really dig for outside songs that were songs we wish we’d written,” added Dave Haywood. “As we took them into the studio, we changed our approach and challenged ourselves to try some new things that were outside of what we’d done before."

Sarah Buxton and Friends Release Skyline Motel EP

Sarah Buxton, Kate York, Daniel Tashian, and Ian Fitchuk formed their quartet, Skyline Motel, in 2012 to create music on their own terms. Now, nearly two years later, the band has released their first EP. With a nod as much to Fleetwood Mac as to Nashville, it's truly great engaging songwriting from four very talented artists.

“Most of the singers in the band have been through the ringer with the label world and the music business in general,” said York to Music Row. “So the idea behind this whole project was just to make music for fun and on our terms. It has been nothing but fun since we started.”

“Skyline Motel started out as an idea that Kate had and would not let go!” Buxton teased.

“Years ago Daniel and I talked about how much we wanted to be in a Fleetwood Mac type band,” said York. “The idea for Skyline Motel came after meeting Sarah and turning in a song to my publisher, Carla Wallace, who said, ‘Who is this? Stevie Nicks and Christy McVie?’”

“There was no agenda that preceded the night that we wrote all the material,” said Fitchuk. “Everything since then has been a natural motion forward, an energy we’re just trying to enjoy.”

Buxton had a couple of mid-level hits of her own with "Space" and "Outside My Window," wrote "Stupid Boy" and "Put You In a Song" for Keith Urban and is the lovely vocals behind David Nail on "Let It Rain."  York has released three independent albums and has worked as an engineer and songwriter for over a decade in Nashville. Tashian has been a staff writer for Universal Music, Windswept Pacific/ Bug and is currently published by Big Yellow Dog Music in Nashville TN.  He was signed as an artist for Elektra records in the late 90′s and made one major label LP with T. Bone Burnett. Futchuk is another longtime Nashville grinder acting as a producer, writer, songwriter and musician for many years in town.

Skyline Motel EP Track Listing:
1. Language of Love
2. Skyline Motel
3. Sleep With Me
4. Feel Like Singing
5. Not About You
