After the jump, info about a new CD in the works ...
This from today's e-mail:
Nashville Records, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NSHV) is proud to announce the addition of Johnny Lee and John Ford Coley -- two prominent artists with # 1 hits -- to its upcoming Christmas album. These signings are another major step in ensuring the successful release of this unique production which will blend classic and original Christmas songs by a growing group of talented artists.
Other releases have said the CD will also include Brooke Morton, Cook & Glenn, Paul Overstreet, Lucas Hoge, T.G. Sheppard, Anita Cochran and Roy Clark.
And, given my fascination with holiday tunes, I hunted up the original announcement of the CD, which said this:
Nashville Records, Inc., a Tennessee Corporation, and Neuroscience Therapy Corp. (PINKSHEETS: NPYC) have announced an upcoming 2007 Christmas Compilation release with some of County Music's big name legends, which will be under the Company's own Nashville Records Label™. The album is completely fresh with all new songs and is about 1/3 complete.
To date the musicians for the album are courtesy of Dolly Parton and John Michael Montgomery band, as well as several other top Nashville players and vocalists, such as guitarist Alfons Kettner, and background vocalist Perry Coleman, whose impressive resume includes Faith Hill, Carrie Underwood, Toby Keith, and LeAnn Rimes. Nashville Records™ hired two of the top producers in Nashville to produce the tracks. Kent Wells, who produces Dolly Parton, has produced two of the songs, as well as producer Kimo Forrest, who has produced three of the songs to date.
The Company says it will have some of country music's legends performing the songs as well as several of the younger but great artists. One such artist is Daryle Singletary, whose performance of "Swingin' Into Christmas" is an upbeat and fun song that country music enthusiasts will love. Singletary is widely known for such hits as "I Let Her Lie" and "Too Much Fun." A clip of the Christmas song can be heard at www.nashvillerecords.com.
