Janie Fricke Turns Passion Into Second Career DALLAS, TX (July 2, 2015) – Janie Fricke, a two-time “CMA Female Vocalist of the Year,” past Grammy nominee, and a voice of some of the most recognizable advertising jingles ever, has yet another passion, textiles and fabrics. The Janie Fricke Collection is a line of fine home accents, whose fabrics are personally selected and cut by Janie herself to create one of a kind designs. Janie has turned her life-long knowledge of fabric and sewing skills, a family tradition, into the Janie Fricke Collection. This specialized high end brand of products includes decorative pillows, throws, table runners, seasonal items as well as a line of customized “bling” items that she terms “ranch chic.” “My mother and grandmother sewed so I've been doing this since I was very young,” says Fricke. “They never really taught me but I just watched and started to pick up on it, and have always made my own designs. I've made things for friends and family for years but someone pushed me to start my own collection and it’s turned into a second career.”

Daryle Singletary Proves "There's Still A Little Country Left" NASHVILLE, TN (June 30, 2015) – Daryle Singletary sounds like a man on a mission in his latest album, There’s Still a Little Country Left, which drops nationwide in music stores and online July 28th. The album is his first release since 2009’s Rockin’ in the Country. With his latest album, Daryle remains true to his roots, which he describes as “hardcore country traditionalist.” “When I moved to Nashville in 1990, I left Georgia telling my Daddy, ‘I want to make my living in country music,’” Daryle says. For him, country music means the kind of traditional country he grew up listening to. Each selection on There’s Still A Little Country Left harkens back to Country at its core. Daryle takes a no-holds-barred approach to the subject as well, underscoring his theme with the album’s opening number, “Get Out of My Country.”
