Nashville, TN (February 26, 2014) – Armed with “Wasting All These Tears,” the Top 10 Country debut single that has sold nearly 1 million copies, talented newcomer Cassadee Pope has released a brand new music video! The petite powerhouse’s latest offering, “I Wish I Could Break Your Heart,” has already garnered buzz with over 310,000 fans viewing online. Watch now via

Director Wes Edwards utilized the blank canvas of a sound stage in Nashville to capture a balance of femininity and empowerment. Soft scenes draped in ivory lace and pearls are intercut with dark visuals depicting broken hearts, mimicking the whirlwind of emotions that come with a failed relationship. Cassadee’s band is also featured in a rockin’ performance as she belts out the driving chorus.

The single is from Cassadee’s album FRAME BY FRAME, which debuted in the upper echelon on the Billboard charts – #1 Top Country Albums and Top 10 all-genre Top Albums. The achievement marked Cassadee as one of only two solo women in the past five years to top the Country chart with a debut release. The singer/songwriter stole the national spotlight when she won The Voice (season 3) as part of Team Blake (Shelton) and dominated the #1 spot on iTunes All-Genre chart with three of her performances.

Cassadee, who has previously toured with Rascal Flatts and Dean Brody, will join Tim McGraw’s SUNDOWN HEAVEN TOWN 2014 TOUR this Summer. For tour dates and more, visit

LOS ANGELES - February 26, 2014 – AEG Live announced today that Rod Stewart and Santana, two of music’s most influential hit makers and dynamic live performers, will join forces and embark on an 18-concert North American tour this summer. Kicking-off May 23 in Albany, NY, the tour unites two musical trailblazers who have helped redefine the sound of popular music for the last five decades through their combined love of rock, soul, world rhythms, funk, jazz and blues. Both Stewart and Santana are known for their high-energy, hit-packed live concerts -- making the combination an incomparable experience for all music fans. (tour itinerary below)
Tickets for the tour will go on sale beginning Friday, March 7 at 10AM (local time). American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets for Rosemont, IL before the general public beginning Monday, March 3rd at 10AM (CST) through Thursday, March 6th at 10PM (CST).

With his singular voice, narrative songwriting and passionate live performances, Rod Stewart has built one of the most successful and enduring music careers of all time. In a career spanning more than five decades, he has amassed sales of more than 150 million albums worldwide and has countless chart-topping hits and industry accolades - including two inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2007, he was bestowed Commander of the British Empire (CBE) by the Queen of England. In May 2013, Stewart released Time, his first rock album in a dozen years, on Capitol Records. The album features 11 original tracks and marks Rod’s return to songwriting after
nearly two decades. Time entered the UK Albums Chart at No. 1, setting a new British record for the longest gap between chart-topping albums by an artist -- and in the US, it marked Stewart’s highest-charting album of original material since 1979. In addition to touring, Stewart headlines one of Las Vegas’ most critically and commercially successful residencies at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
For forty years and as many albums later, Santana has sold more than 100 million records and reached more than 100 million fans at concerts worldwide. To date, Santana has won ten GRAMMY ® Awards and three Latin GRAMMY ® Awards. He won a record-tying nine GRAMMYs for a single project for 1999’s Supernatural (including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for “Smooth”). He has also received the Billboard Century Award (1996), was ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1998), and received the Billboard Latin Music Awards’ Lifetime Achievement honor (2009). Among many other honors, Carlos Santana has also been cited by
Rolling Stone as #15 on their list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” Celebrating the chart debut of Guitar Heaven (Arista) in 2010, Santana joined the ranks of the Rolling Stones as the only musical act in chart history to score at least one Top 10 album in every decade beginning with the 1960s. He is also currently headlining at a multi-year residency at House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas. In 2013, Carlos Santana was the recipient of the 2013 Kennedy Center Honors Award. Santana’s new album CORAZÓN (RCA/Sony Latin Iberia) due out May 6, 2014 is a collaborative effort with the biggest names in Latin music.

February 25th, 2014 - LOS ANGELES, CA - Green Day will release Demolicious - a collection of 18 demos recorded at Jingletown Studios in Oakland, CA, in 2012 during the sessions for the band's Green Day ¡Uno!, Green Day ¡Dos!, Green Day ¡Tré! album trilogy - in conjunction with Record Store Day on April 19th, 2014. The two-disc set will be released on red or clear vinyl, and will also be available on CD and cassette.

In addition to the 18 demos, Demolicious includes a previously unreleased track, "State of Shock," and an acoustic version of "Stay The Night" from Green Day ¡Uno!.



GREEN DAY - vocalist/guitarist BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG bassist MIKE DIRNT, and drummer TRÉ COOL - were kids from working-class backgrounds who came of age in the underground punk scene in Berkeley. Even though they had released two records prior (1039 / Smoothed Out Slappy Hours and Kerplunk), they announced their arrival with 1994's Dookie, a dynamic blast of exuberant punk-pop that sold 15 million copies and earned the band its first Grammy® Award for Best Alternative Music Performance. Over the years, Green Day continued to top the charts with their subsequent studio albums Insomniac, Nimrod and Warning, while entertaining millions of fans with their frenetic live shows. But it was their landmark 2004 album American Idiot that launched Green Day into the stratosphere. American Idiot debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard chart, spawned five hit singles, earned seven Grammy® nominations (winning two, including BestRock Album), and raised the bar for modern rock and roll. In 2009, Green Day released 21st Century Breakdown, which won the 2010 Grammy® Award for Best Rock Album. It spawned two hit singles: the gold "Know Your Enemy," which was the first song ever to top Billboard's Rock, Alternative, and Mainstream Rock charts simultaneously, and the double-platinum "21 Guns," which earned them three 2009 MTV Video Music Awards including Best Rock Video. Green Day also took home an American Music Award for Favorite Alternative Rock Music Artist. Later that year, Green Day collaborated with Tony Award winning director of Spring Awakening, Michael Mayer, for the stage musical of American Idiot. The play bowed at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre in September 2009 and set attendance records during its limited engagement. The play went on to Broadway and ran for a year at the St. James Theatre and won two Tony Awards Green Day's highly anticipated album trilogy kicked off with the release of Green Day ¡Uno!, (September 25, 2012) followed by Green Day ¡Dos! (November 13th), and Green Day ¡Tré! (December 11th). The band is currently on the road in Australia for the Soundwave Festival.  For more info visit

STL comedy FESTIVAL brings sommore & star-studded cast of comedians to CHAIFETZ ARENA ON SATURDAY, April 12

Tickets go on-sale on friday, FEBRUARY 7 at 10 a.m. at
Queen of Comedy Sommore, alongside veteran comedians Bruce Bruce, Earthquake, Arnez J, Gary Owen, and Tony Rock will command the stage at Chaifetz Arena at Saint Louis University with “The Royal Comedy Tour” on Saturday, April 12 at 8 p.m.

Tickets are $47.50, $59.50, and $78 and go on sale on Friday, February 7 at 10 a.m. at, charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000, Ticketmaster outlets and at the Chaifetz Arena Box Office.

As the undisputed “Queen of Comedy,” Sommore is widely considered one of America’s top comedic female entertainers and combines sass and class to entertain audiences. She is the star of the 2013 comedy special “Chandelier Status” and was the first woman to host BET’s “Comic View.” Sommore offers a hilarious, yet piercing look at today’s issues from a woman’s perspective, which led Oprah Winfrey to proclaim her “a force to be reckoned with in the new millennium.”

Bruce Bruce’s steady style of captivating improv skills and larger-than-life comedic style has been showcased across the country. Bruce Bruce brought his comedy routine to the Comedy Act Theater in Atlanta and was an instant hit. Bruce Bruce has appeared in “Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector,” “Who’s Your Caddy” and Ice Cube’s “XXX: State of the Union.”

Earthquake originally hails from Washington D.C., but has taken the nation by storm since bursting onto the comedy scene in the late 1990s. Earthquake has performed on stages at HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam,” and made special appearances on Comedy Central, Bill Maher, and Conan O’Brien. His breakout performance came with his hit special “About Got Damn Time” and his performances on “Clerks II” and “Everybody Hates Chris” cemented his place as a stalwart in comedy.

After realizing that stand-up comedy was his true calling, Arnez J. began to work the comedy circuit in Georgia. Arnez J. has made television appearances on Comedy Central’s “Make Me Laugh,” Russell Simmons’ “Def Comedy Jam” and “Louie Anderson’s Comedy Showcase” among others.

Gary Owen has been bringing laughter to America for over a decade as he’s filled major comedy rooms across the nation. Recently, Owen toured as part of the renowned, Mike Epps Presents: Live from the Club Nokia. Beyond stand-up, Owen made a name for himself as he has been featured in films including “Daddy Day Care,” “Little Man,” and “College.”

Younger brother of Chris, Tony Rock has also hosted several of his own shows, including the “Tony Rock Project” and a feature on “Comedy Central Presents.” Rock appeared as a recurring character in the TV series “Everybody Hates Chris” and has had numerous appearances on the big screen including roles in “Hitch,” “Three Can Play That Game” and “Life Support.”

Vince Gill, Kathleen Madigan to Headline Second Annual
‘Ozzie & Friends Concert’ Benefiting PGA REACH

Lineup Curated by Hall of Fame Shortstop Ozzie Smith to Help Keep St. Louis Youth in School
ST. LOUIS (February 10, 2014) – Hall of Fame shortstop Ozzie Smith is proud to announce the entertainment lineup for the second annual “Ozzie & Friends Concert – A Benefit for PGA Reach,” featuring Grammy Award-winning country music star Vince Gill and world-renowned comedian Kathleen Madigan, with Smith’s son, and American Idol finalist, Nikko Smith as the opening act.
The Ozzie & Friends Concert will take place on Thursday, May 1, 2014, at the Peabody Opera House in St. Louis.  Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and entertainment will begin at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets for the event, beginning at $30 each, will go on sale via Ticketmaster on Friday, February 14, 2014.
In addition to selling more than 26 million albums, Gill has been honored with multiple industry accolades, including 20 Grammy Awards, 18 CMA Awards, and Entertainer of the Year in 1993 and 1994.  Madigan, meanwhile, is a St. Louis Native who has won the American Comedy and Phyllis Diller Award for “Best Female Comedian.”
All proceeds will directly benefit PGA REACH (Recreation, Education, Awareness, Community, and Health), helping keep St. Louis-area youths in school.  Founded locally by the Gateway PGA Foundation, the PGA of America, and the St. Louis golfing community, PGA REACH has partnered with the Boys & Girls Club, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri, and Urban K-Life to help fill idle time for at-risk youth, improving their health, wellness and career prospects. Within those partner programs, PGA REACH also has a larger goal of applying the lessons learned in golf – including focus and determination – well beyond the 18th hole.
“PGA REACH is a cause that’s near and dear to my heart,” said Smith, who serves as the president of the Gateway PGA Foundation. “Youths spend more than 80 percent of their days outside the classroom.  Our partner organizations help fill that idle time with productive activities.  Meanwhile, introducing them to the sport of golf, which requires immense self-control and discipline, will no doubt carry over to other parts of their lives and help them fulfill their potential within our community.”

February 19, 2014 (New York, New York) -- Tori Amos is set to release her brand new studio album, Unrepentant Geraldines, May 13th in the U.S. on Mercury Classics/Universal Music Classics. Unrepentant Geraldines is pop/rock in both content and feel and is a change in pace from Amos’ most recent releases.  The album is both one step further in the evolution of one of the most successful and influential artists of her generation, and a return to the inspiring and personal music that Amos is known for all around the world.
Read more about Unrepentant Geraldines from Tori Amos on Rolling Stone:
Tori Amos’ worldwide tour kicks off in May, with U.S. dates now announced for July and August (see attached). Fans will have exclusive access to a ticket pre-sale before the general public on-sale dates by pre-ordering Unrepentant Geraldines on-line.  Once a pre-order for the album is placed through , individuals will later receive a code to grant them access to pre-sales tickets for the U.S. show of their choice.
Unrepentant Geraldines is her 14th studio recording, and a return to her core identity as a creator of contemporary songs, following a series of more classically-inspired and innovative musical projects of the last four years. These have included the seasonal collection Midwinter Graces, the classically influenced Night of Hunters, and Gold Dust, a collection of orchestral re-workings of songs from across her career. Released in October 2012 Gold Dust included “Flavor,” which was remixed by the late DJ Peter Rauhofer and peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Club Dance Chart in February 2013.  
Amos recently also launched her most ambitious project to date as a composer, along with book writer Samuel Adamson, with the musical The Light Princes, which premiered at London's National Theatre in fall of 2013.
Tori Amos has sold over 12 million albums, has played over a thousand shows and has won numerous awards. Since the release of her debut album Little Earthquakes 21 years ago in 1992 where she pushed boundaries with her confessional style of songwriting, Amos continues to be adored, picking up new fans along the way, romanced by her messages of empowerment, tenderness, acerbic assertiveness, and of course her utterly peerless sound.
A pioneer across multiple platforms, Tori Amos was the first major label artist to offer a single for download. She has had her songs turned into graphic novels and has produced groundbreaking videos throughout her career. Ms. Amos is also a noted humanitarian and co-founder of RAINN (Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network), which is the United States’ largest anti-sexual assault organization.

Pharrell Williams To Release New Album

 "G I R L" Monday, March 3  




 Global superstar Pharrell Williams has just announced the release of his Columbia Records debut album, G  I  R  L.  Highlighted by his Oscar-nominated hit single "Happy," G  I  R  L will be released worldwide Monday, March 3. Pre-order the album here:

"When Columbia Records presented me with the opportunity to make an album, three things came to mind," says Pharrell. "One was the sense of overwhelming honor that I felt when I realized that they were interested in partnering with me on the album that I had always dreamt of making.  Two, it would have to feel festive and urgent.  And three, I instantly knew it would be called G  I  R  L. I hope you like it."
Pharrell is currently in London, where he will perform "Happy" at the BRIT Awards this evening, and on Sunday, March 2, Pharrell is slated to perform the song on the 86th Annual Academy Awards. Pharrell will also perform on Germany's Wetten Das and France's Le Grand Journal later this month. This past Sunday, Pharrell kicked off the NBA All-Star Game with an incredible retrospective performance of some of his greatest hits.
"Happy," which was first featured on Despicable Me 2 (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), has become an international phenomenon and radio smash. Currently #1 on the iTunes' Songs chart in the U.S., the song has topped the chart in more than 75 countries, selling more than 2.3 million downloads worldwide. In addition to jumping to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week, "Happy" has also become the highest-charting Oscar-nominated song in more than a decade. With more than 120 million in audience, the song is currently charting at seven U.S. radio formats—Top 40, Rhythm, AC, Hot AC, Urban, Urban AC, and AAA. Around the world, "Happy" tops radio charts in 14 countries including Australia, France, Germany, U.K., Belgium, Denmark, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, South Africa, Switzerland, and Poland.
Just last month, Pharrell took home four GRAMMY® awards, including Producer of the Year, Album of the Year for Daft Punk's Random Access Memories, and Record of the Year as well as Best Pop Duo/Performance for Daft Punk's "Get Lucky." Pharrell has won a career-spanning total of seven GRAMMYs.
Redefining cool for a new generation, Pharrell Williams is a creative force, using music, fashion, and design to express his distinctive style. From his beginnings as a teenage prodigy and multi-instrumentalist in Virginia Beach back in the early '90s, through enough hits to earn him Billboard's Producer of the Decade in 2010, to his current status as multi-media superstar, Williams has never stopped creating. Starting his producing career as one half of The Neptunes with Chad Hugo, Williams has helped create such classics as Daft Punk's "Get Lucky," Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," Nelly's "Hot in Herre," Jay-Z's "I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me)," Britney Spears' "I'm A Slave 4 U," and Justin Timberlake's "Like I Love You."
With over 100 million copies of his productions sold, his music sounds like something no one else has thought of just yet. He's also created a new way of looking at established stars like Snoop Dogg, Madonna, and even the Rolling Stones. Over four albums, Williams and Hugo along with Shae Haley created an unpredictable hybrid as part of the alt-rock/hip-hop group N.E.R.D. His prolific body of work also ranges from designing a sculpture with Tokyo-born artist Takashi Murakami to accessories and jewelry for luxury goods brands Louis Vuitton and Moncler. Now, with his latest venture i am OTHER — a multi-media creative collective that serves as an umbrella for all his endeavors, including Billionaire Boys Club & ICECREAM apparel, textile company Bionic Yarn and dedicated YouTube channel — Williams' vision continues to push pop culture forward.
