Randy Rogers and Wade Bowen to release Hold My Beer, Vol 2 in May

first_imgRandy Rogers and Wade Bowen have teamed up once again for new studio album Hold My Beer, Vol 2.Released on 8th May 2020, the 12-track project is the follow-up to 2015’s Hold My Beer, Vol 1 and their 2016 Watch This live album. The collection is produced by the legendary Lloyd Maines.“Unlike our first record, which kind of happened out of nowhere, this album was really planned,” explains Bowen. “We made a conscious effort to write for this specific project and also focused on bringing the best outside songs to the table. It was really important for us to be as mindful and purposeful as possible when it came to choosing the songs that made the cut for this volume.”“Every single song on the album comes from the heart,” Rogers continues. “Some will make you laugh. Others will make you cry… But when it’s all said and done, we just hope the music speaks for itself and reflects the amount of time and love that went into each of these songs, from the melodies to the lyrics. We couldn’t be prouder of this album.”The track listing for Hold My Beer, Vol 2 is:1. AM/FM (Wade Bowen, Randy Rogers, Jon Randall, Jim Beavers)2. Rodeo Clown (Chris DuBois, David Lee)3. Habits (Wade Bowen, Randy Rogers, Jon Randall, Jim Beavers)4. Let Merle Be Merle (Casey Twist, Ross Cooper, Josh Abbott)5. Rhinestoned (Lori McKenna, Ryan Beaver, Ashley Ray)6. Ode To Ben Dorcy (Lovey’s Song) feat. Waylon Jennings and Shooter Jennings (Waylon Jennings)7. Mi Amigo feat. Asleep at the Wheel (Wade Bowen, Randy Rogers, Jon Randall, Jim Beavers)8. This Ain’t My Town (Wade Bowen, Randy Rogers, Jon Randall, Jim Beavers)9. Warm Beer (Adam Wright)10. Speak to Me Jukebox (Wade Bowen, Will Knaak)11. Her (Dean Dillon, Buddy Cannon)12. Hold My Beer (Wade Bowen, Randy Rogers, Jim Beavers)As a teaser for the album, the pair have released Rodeo Clown, written by Chris DuBois and David Lee. It’s a comedic meditation on heartbreak, with its leading man losing his lover to a less than ideal candidate.“Rodeo Clown is the perfect example of what we were aiming for, when it came to picking songs for this album,” says Bowen. “It really shows how lyrics can truly set the tone for a song – because at its core, the track itself is a classic, country ballad about heartache, but the funny lyrics take its ‘sad’ story in a completely different direction.”Rogers and Bowen have more surprises planned for the weeks leading up to the release of Hold My Beer, Vol 2.last_img read more

Cameron Carter Celebrated as Man of Integrity, Passion

first_imgThompson: “It’s the guy he was, I think, he was a fireman’s fireman. He loved to train, he loved to train people. He was in it for the right reasons and everyone liked that model and followed him.” FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Today Cameron Carter’s presence is felt at Central Emergency Services as intensely as this same day seven years ago when Carter and two others went down in a helicopter crash near Whittier. A scholarship fund was set up in Carter’s name… Carter, just 24 at the time, was working his second job as a paramedic with LifeGuard, now LifeMed. The helicopter was carrying a patient suffering complications from a surgery from Cordova to Anchorage when it disappeared into Prince William Sound. The accident was memorialized by a black ribbon decal affixed to LifeMed helicopters, which was recently changed to three blue stars. We asked Engineer Josh Thompson why Carter’s legacy is still so strong… Thompson said he’ll be joining others tonight as part of an annual tradition… Thompson: “We usually do it every year. We just get together and get the LifeMed crew together with us and share some stories and have a drink in his honor.” Thompson: “Through the UAA paramedic program. And they have a fund set up through that they offer every year to a certain student that meets the qualification.” Despite a seven-day search after the accident, only one body was recovered, that of 47-year-old flight nurse John Stumpff. The helicopter’s pilot, 42-year-old Lance Brabham, and the patient, 60-year-old Gaye McDowell of Cordova, were never found.last_img read more

District Continues Developing Safety Threat Responses

first_imgThe third step down is a “heightened awareness” mode where students are watched more closely but there’s no significant change to activities. Erkeneff said the district also modifies the response depending on the age of the students… Erkeneff: “We do have full lock down response, where we’re locking doors, we’re barricading classrooms, and that is the full emergency response lockdown. Then we have what we’re calling stay put, that’s what we used to call a modified lockdown, but the word ‘lockdown’ makes people scared. A stay put means that all the doors are locked, any students that are on the grounds have come into the building, classroom instruction is going on, but we’re not opening the doors for parents to take kids and come and go. It’s staying in place, stay put.” Little more is known about the ongoing computerized threats. Erkeneff said law enforcement is still asking for any public tips or information as they investigate the phone calls. Erkeneff: “For our high school students and our older students, they might have learned how to ‘counter,’ so if someone makes into a classroom and has a really bad intent, they’re not going to be sitting quietly. They’re going to be picking up a fire extinguisher, books, cans, and responding in the classroom in a different way than our little kids would.” FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Amidst continuing state school threats, the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District has been honing their new response system. Pegge Erkeneff with the District said K-Beach Elementary was placed into an official lockdown yesterday for 20 minutes after they received a threatening phone call. All other area schools were in stay put mode for an hour…last_img read more

REPORT: Bristol Rugby 17 – 41 Exeter Chiefs

first_imgTries from Thomas Waldrom (2), Olly Woodburn (2) and Sam Hill – plus 16 points from the boot of Gareth Steenson – cancelled out three scores from the home side, courtesy of Jordan Williams, Ross McMillan and Max Crumpton.It was first blood to Exeter as early as the fourth minute when Olly Woodburn applied the finishing touches to a slick handling move to slide in the right-hand corner. Steenson’s touchline conversion was on the money to give Chiefs a 7-0 lead.The hosts’ response was a spirited one and after a bout of kick tennis, a dangerous challenge from Chiefs wing Ian Whitten on Ryan Edwards saw him sent to the sin-bin.But despite being at a numerical disadvantage, Chiefs added their second try of the evening on the 19-minute mark, when Woodburn was again on hand to receive the final pass after strong work from Sam Hill. Steenson was on target again from under the posts.Bristol responded with character and hit back courtesy of a Jordan Williams try, after Ryan Edwards had shown burning pace to round Lachie Turner and send the full-back clear.Pisi’s conversion was wide but Steenson made no such mistake on 28 minutes, firing over a penalty to stretch the visitors’ lead to 17-5.It was 24-5 just three minutes later, as Thomas Waldrow burrowed over from close range following a spell of prolonged pressure in the Bristol 22 – and Steenson maintained his perfect record from the tee with the simplest of conversions.Chiefs went close again shortly before the break, but a resolute Bristol pack held firm at scrum time and the teams retreated down the tunnel.When they returned, it didn’t take long for Waldrom to record a second from close range, with Steenson’s conversion extending Chiefs’ lead to 31-5.Bristol responded in kind with McMillan barging over on the back of a surging maul that had driven Exeter 15 metres – but Pisi’s conversion drifted wide as Bristol pushed for a way back into the game.A second Steenson penalty gave Chiefs a 24-point cushion with 20 minutes to play, only for Max Crumpton to reduce deficit to 17 points, as the replacement hooker fought off two tacklers to touch down in the corner. Jordan Williams took over the kicking duties and fired over a pinpoint touchline conversion for 17-34.Chiefs though, had the final say, when Sam Hill latched on to an offload and rounded the covering Bristol defence for a fifth score of the evening, while the pristine boot of Steenson made the final score 17-41.Bristol: Jordan Williams; Ryan Edwards, Will Hurrell, Thretton Palamo, Tom Varndell (Amesbury 48); Tusi Pisi, Will Cliff (Roberts 64 (Roberts)); Kyle Traynor (Tonga’uiha 59), Ross McMillan (Crumpton 59), Gaston Cortes (Ford-Robinson 59), James Phillips, Mark Sorenson, Jon Fisher (Joyce 64), Jack Lam (c), Jordan Crane (Eadie 48).Replacements: Max Crumpton, Soane Tonga’uiha, Jamal Ford-Robinson, Joe Joyce, Mitch Eadie, Martin Roberts, Adrian Jarvis, Charlie Amesbury.Exeter Chiefs: Lachie Turner, Olly Woodburn, Sam Hill, Henry Slade (Short 71), Ian Whitten, Gareth Steenson (c), Will Chudley, Alec Hepburn (Yeandle 55), Luke Cowan-Dickie (Moon 55), Greg Holmes (Williams 55), Mitch Lees, Damian Welch, Dave Dennis, Julian Salvi, Thomas Waldrom.Replacements: Jack Yeandle, Ben Moon, Harry Williams, Geoff Parling, Kai Horstmann, Dave Lewis, Ollie Devoto, James Short.Referee: Tom Foleylast_img read more

REPORT: Worcester Warriors 31-25 Bristol Rugby

first_imgA first half try from Giorgi Nemsadze and late scores from Jack Wallace and Tom Varndell saw the visitors claw their way back having trailed 31-13 with ten minutes to play – but a spell of late pressure was to no avail as Worcester held on for the win.What happened?After spending the opening five minutes very much in the ascendency, Bristol found themselves behind when Josh Adams scooped up a loose pass to charge in from 50 metres.But they hit back immediately and following another spell of possession in Worcester territory, Giorgi Nemsadze’s neat footwork saw him coast in from close range, while Searle’s conversion nudged the visitors into a narrow lead.Searle extended the lead further with a beautifully struck penalty from 40 metres out and a second on 22 minutes – from much closer range – put Bristol 13-5 ahead.With the half drawing to a close, Worcester fought their way back with a second try of the night courtesy of Max Stelling, who was the beneficiary of some sharp handling from Shillcock and Pennell in the hosts’ backline. The fly half’s conversion was again off target, fading across the face of the posts to give Bristol a one-point lead at the interval.TRY-TIME: Giorgi Nemsadze dives over for Bristol’s opening try at Sixways (Photo: JMP UK).The second half began poorly for the visitors, with Rob Hawkins sent to the sin-bin just two minutes in – and the Warriors took instant advantage as Josh Adams crossed for his second of the evening, with Shillcock nailing the touchline conversion.Things got worse for Bristol on 49 minutes when Jack Wallace’s sin-binning – for a high tackle – saw them reduced to 13 men for a short period.Warriors’ numerical advantage paid dividend again not long after, with scrum half Michael Dowsett cruising in untouched and Shillcock once again adding the extras for a 24-13 lead.Max Stelling then produced a moment of magic for his second of the night, racing down the left wing before collecting his own chip ahead and shaking off the covering Bristol defence. Shillcock’s touchline conversion was on target again.Bristol though, refused to lie down and pulled a score back 12 minutes from time through Jack Wallace, who went over from close range after Luke Arscott’s interception had taken them to within two metres of the Worcester line. Searle stroked over the conversion to maintain his 100 percent record from the tee.BREAKAWAY: Rhodri Williams takes on the Worcester defence (Photo: JMP UK). They closed the gap further when Tom Varndell sprinted in from 30 metres after latching on to Wallace’s beautifully timed pass to leave just a six-point deficit heading into the final few minutes.With time ticking away, Varndell was soon back in the thick of the action, chipping ahead before taken out illegally by Matt Cox, who was shown a yellow card.From the resulting penalty, Bristol kicked to the corner only to see their maul rebuffed by the home pack.The visitors came again, but were once again shutdown by a resilient Worcester defence, before a knock-on in midfield signalled the end of a tense cup clash.Key moment:Two yellow cards early in the second half – to Rob Hawkins and Jack Wallace – cost Bristol dear as Worcester ran in 14 unanswered points in that period.Photo of the match:IN THE CLEAR: Tom Varndell races to the try line in the closing stages (Photo: JMP UK). Man of the match: Giorgi NemsadzeThe big Georgian was at his barnstorming best at Sixways, opening the scoring in the first half and putting himself in the thick of the action throughout the evening with some strong ball carrying and neat linnet work.Social post of the day: The teams: Bristol Rugby: Jack Wallace, Tom Varndell, Gareth Maule (Arscott 61), James Newey, David Lemi (c); Billy Searle, Rhodri Williams (Uren 61); Soane Tonga’uiha (O’Connell 54), Rob Hawkins (Shervington 63), Jamal Ford-Robinson (Hall 63), Giorgi Nemsadze, Ian Evans (Hawkins 65), Nick Koster, Olly Robinson (Smid 63), Nick Fenton-Wells.Replacements: Edd Shervington, Jack O’Connell, James Hall, John Hawkins, Rayn Smid, Andy Uren, Elias Caven, Luke Arscott.Worcester Warriors: Chris Pennell (C), Josh Adams, Max Stelling, Jackson Willison (Heathcote 67), Andy Short, Jamie Shillcock, Michael Dowsett (De Colthi 64); Na’ama Leleimalefaga (Bower 54), Jack Singleton (Annett 64), James Johnston (Alo 40), Andrew Kitchener, Charlie Hewitt, Dewald Potgieter, Huw Taylor, Matt Cox.Replacements: Niall Annett, Ryan Bower, Biyi Alo, Justin Clegg, Sam Ripper-Smith, George de Cothi, Tom Heathcote, Afeafe Haisila Lokotui.last_img read more
