57,368 Fans at Arrowhead Stadium Topples Two Decade Old Number Kansas City, Mo. (August 2, 2015) — The traffic on I-70 was backed up for well over an hour going both directions. The parking lots were flooded as soon as they opened the gates. It should’ve been obvious before the tickets were tallied something special was going on; but for fans coming to Arrowhead Stadium for Kenny Chesney’s Big Revival, it seemed like it was the annual rite of summer for the No Shoes Nation. But when the tickets were counted, Chesney had shattered Pink Floyd’s 1994 record of 56,134 with 57,368 in attendance. This year’s show marked Chesney fourth headlining stand at Arrowhead Stadium. “I had no idea about the number when we took the stage,” Chesney marveled when he was told. “Pink Floyd are rock icons. Every kid’s high school experience… I never ever would’ve thought something like that could happen. We’ve been coming to Kansas City for years, and they’ve always been really loud audiences. But when we hit the stage, it felt like all those years, all those shows were added up into one – and that was what we were being hit with.” Find out more straight from the source! http://ebmediapr.com/kennychesney/940-kenny-chesney-breaks-pink-floyds-record

Folk-influenced LP out Sept. 11 on Sugar Hill Records, offers fans 14 new tracks; Available for pre-order here now. NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 28, 2015) – She first appeared on the scene like a supernova and now, just five years since her last singer-songwriter album, Jewel is returning to the deep, personal territory and folk sound that made her one of music’s most exciting young voices when she released the transcendent Pieces of You. As revealed by RollingStone.com this morning, Jewel will release her new album Picking Up the Pieces on Sept. 11 through Sugar Hill Records, now available for pre-order here. She self-produced the 14-track LP – with her first producer, the late Ben Keith, always in mind – and hired a band comprised mostly of Neil Young collaborators to help her strip away the veneer she’d built up over two decades in the music business. “This is just me. These are my thoughts. These are my feelings. This is my poetry,” Jewel said. “It really felt like returning to a part of me that I didn’t mean to lose, but with time and relationships and life and surviving and dealing, you take on new things and not all of them are great.” Find out more straight from the source! http://ebmediapr.com/home/138-ebm/933-jewel-returns-to-her-roots-with-personal-new-album-picking-up-the-pieces

In 1977, Anderson signed with Warner Brothers Records and had his first major hit in 1980 with Billy Joe Shaver’s, “I’m Just an Old Chunk of Coal (But I’m Gonna Be a Diamond Someday).” Other hits include the classic “Wild and Blue” released in 1982, and “Swingin,” the No. 1 Billboard Country single co-written with Lionel Delmore that would lead Anderson to garner the CMA Horizon Award.
