Neil Haislop reports: This week starts the major push for the "Flicka" movie release on October 20th. TODAY (10/10) at the historic Belcourt Theatre, Nashville's non-profit venue for film, music and events, Tim McGraw will screen “Flicka” for the industry. The event will kick off with an acoustic guitar pull on the theatre stage featuring soundtrack artists the Warren Brothers, the Dancehall Doctors, Holly Williams, Catherine Raney and special guest, writer Tom Douglas (who co-wrote "My Little Girl" with Tim). THE GUESTS, Warren Brothers, Holly Williams, Catherine Raney and the Dance Hall Doctors, will likely sing the songs each act contributed to the Flicka Soundtrack Album that is being released by pre-order to WalMart prior to the film’s Sountdrack Album release Oct. 17th. (Warrens perform “Where Did I Go Right,” Holly Williams sings “Rodeo Road,” Catherin Raney performs “All the Pretty Little Ponies, and even the Dance Hall Doctors add their own rendition of “The Fireman.”)
Brad Paisley’s TIME WELL WASTED TOUR featuring Carrie Underwood and special guest Jake Owen sold-out the Lafayette, LA Cajun Dome in less than an hour this past Saturday – maximum capacity. The tour is on a course to exceed over 700,000 tickets sold for 2006 and will rank in the Top 5 of all country tours this year. Tour continues through Dec. 8. ALSO… BRAD PAISLEY CHRISTMAS – the 11-track collection of holiday songs delivers what Paisley does best, musically blending heart and humor topped with his stellar guitar work and arrangements. There are seven traditional favorites and four Paisley penned originals, including “Born on Christmas Day,” which he wrote as a 13 year old and performed on his first official appearance at the legendary Jamboree U.S.A. A highlight on the disk includes original audio from this performance mixed with Paisley’s voice today to create a magical listen. Paisley’s current single is “She’s Everything” – written by Paisley and Will Nance - a love song that Paisley wrote about his wife, Kimberly Williams-Paisley but can relate to any couple.
