“Simple is a song about a relationship that doesn’t work out,” recalls Tyler. “You can remember the progression from the moment you really felt the relationship taking off all the way to how it felt when it was all over. You can play a million what ifs, but all you’re left with is a memory of what was.”

Tyler recently launched his new album Good for Me featuring the single Simple on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play & Amazon premiering inside the Top 40 on iTunes Country Album Charts on January 26. The first preview of Tyler’s project was launched at the close of 2017 when The Boot premiered the lyric video for the title track Good For Me. Since that premiere, outlets like All Access, AXS-TV, Billboard Country Update, Country Music Pride, The Country Note, KTUL-TV (Tulsa), Speed Sport, Tulsa World, WBKO-ABC (Bowling Green, KY), WGGC-FM (Bowling Green, KY), Young Millennial Money and many others have been buzzing about this Georgia native.

About Tyler Williams
This Stone Mountain, GA native was reared in a household with parents that spun the hits of Marvin Gaye and Michael W. Smith while Tyler and his older brother were discovering the hit makers of the 90s — Alan Jackson, George Strait, Boyz II Men & Mariah Carey. Recognizing early on that he wanted a career in entertainment, he would capture a role in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and performed for two years at the Fox Theater in Atlanta at ages 11 and 12. However, a failed performance at age 13 in a rock band caused him to change directions.

Tyler would then spend his summers with his uncles in the auto shop learning the mechanics behind combustion engines and began his path to the NASCAR late model and sprint car racing series. After nearly a decade of milestones that would find him capturing his first victory lane among 15 years veterans during his fourth year as a driver and even finishing as the #2 ranking position in points in his series, he decided to finally overcome his fear of the stage and redirected his focus to music.

This journey would spawn a debut ep Believe Again and book I Have a Voice, the inspirational and motivational look at the lessons he’s learned in the racing and now music community. Continuing to hone his craft while he furthers his racing career, Tyler’s second project Good For Me premiered on January 26 inside the Top 40 on the iTunes Country Album Charts.

Beyond The Sun Exclusively Premieres Lyric Video for Dance Floor on Digital Journal

Beyond the Sun, the Canadian reared trio of brothers, is excited to share the lyric video for their new single Dance Floor via an exclusive premiere on today.

“Their rich vocals on Dance Floor are youthful and refreshing, where the listeners can recall the pop-rock band Fun (fronted by Nate Ruess). The song has a liberating vibe to it, which will resonate well with their fan-base,” wrote the Digital Journal’s Markos Papadatos.

The trio also performed the single today at “Today in Nashville” on WSMV-NBC in Music City. Hosted by Kelly Sutton and Carole Sullivan, the appearance marked Beyond the Sun’s second appearance on the program since their move to Music City. Click the image below for the segment.

About Beyond the Sun

Canadian bred band Beyond the Sun is paving their own path in a genre they coined as “shuffle.” Made up of three tight-knit brothers, the group features (l-r) guitarist Phil, singer Colin and drummer Dalton Radu, who were reared in the small town of Bowmanville, Ontario. It all started with plastic guitars and living room concerts for their parents at the ages of 6, 8 and 11. Little did they know at the time that just over a decade later they would be hearing themselves on Sirius XM radio and headlining a 7,000-person sold-out crowd at Puerto Rico’s Wild Summer Festival. With traces of their influences – which include artists like Coldplay, Billy Currington, Bruce Springsteen and Florida Georgia Line – threaded into each one of their songs, their sound is a progressive mix that is putting them on the heels of acts like Chris Lane and Ryan Follese. Now, the trio has relocated to Nashville, Tenn. where they recently celebrated the release of their new single, Dance Floor as a follow up to the Music Row charts breakthrough Cruisin’ Round Town.

Kalie Shorr Releases Electric New Music Video For Hit Single “Two Hands” Already Spinning On Cmt, Gac And Vevo

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (February 2, 2018) — Best defined as “punk country,” Kalie Shorr proved yet again that she is the queen of content, releasing an electric new music video for her hit single “Two Hands.” Shorr gave a sneak peek to a sold-out crowd of industry and media VIPS, fans and friends during her launch party for her new EP Awake last week at The Back Corner in Nashville. The color filled, psychedelic video premiered on CMT and Friday morning and has since been added to GAC and to the top of Vevo’s DSCVR  playlist. Vote for “Two Hands” on CMT Hot 20 Countdown Heatseeker Poll here.

Says Shorr, “This video is the most visually creative thing I have ever done. During the process of finding my sound on Awake, I also found what my world looks like. I have a lot of freedom as an independent artist, so I was able to lean pretty far from tradition on this video, keeping it youthful and exactly what I wanted. I am excited for this to be the first music video from the record and I am thankful to have the support of CMT, GAC and VEVO!”

The neon-dream visuals were brought to life at The Listening Room Cafe and Stormlight Pictures Company by director Rob Bennett and Quinton Cook, with Thomas Kuttenkuler as the male lead.

“Kalie Shorr’s perspective is needed in today’s country music. With a sound that’s equal parts Haim and Shania Twain, her music is a daring reflection of today’s world as well as a dreamy escape from it.” – Lauren Tingle, CMT

Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers’ Native Heart Debuts at #14 on iTunes Chart

Roger Clyne and The Peacemaker’s eighth studio album, Native Heart, is now available through all digital retailers. The ten-track project was produced by Grammy winning legend Steve Berlin and mixed by Michael Brauer at the iconic Electric Lady Studios; they shine new light on a band that’s built a career on trekking their own path with their own sound style of twang and taller-than-life characters of the Southwest to a rock & roll soundtrack. The group will celebrate the release of Native Heart with a show tonight at Livewire in Scottsdale, AZ. Tickets are available on their website,

About Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers
Bridging the gap between rock & roll, roadhouse Americana, and the music sounds of the southwestern United States, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers have carved their own path over 15 years. They’ve traveled the world, sent eight albums to the top of the Billboard Internet Sales Chart, launched an annual music festival in Mexico, started their own line of ultra premium tequila and built a global community of music-lovers and peacemakers – all while remaining 100% independent.

The band’s roots run deep, sinking back to a time with The Refreshments – the hometown heroes of Phoenix during the mid-1990s, fueled by a major-label deal with Mercury Records, a popular song (”Banditos”) on American rock radio and MTV and the unique distinction of being both the composers and performers of the theme song for the cultural favorite “King of the Hill” TV show. All served to introduce Roger Clyne’s songwriting to a national audience. The Refreshments sang about Mexico, liquored-up bandits and troubadours, mixing the lore of the American Southwest with guitar muscle and pop/rock melody. Clyne deepened that sound with his next project, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers, a roots rock sound relying not on a record label for support, but on near-constant touring and a rare, genuine connection with fans.

In April of 2017, the band’s founders, Roger Clyne & PH Naffah, appeared in a documentary, “Here’s To Life,” about The Refreshments. Which celebrates the 20th Anniversary of the debut album, Fizzy Fuzzy Big & Buzzy. Two decades after its release, the album continues to influence a wide range of rock and country musicians, 12 of who put their own stamp on the album’s music with an upcoming, all-star tribute album recreation of Fizzy Fuzzy Big and Buzzy.

Music, dancing and fireflies floating in the sawgrass.   You’ve got a caller and a band and folks having fun under the moonlight.  With lyrics rooted in scenes of the deep south, think lights strung up around an outdoor patio in the heart of a town where they still love to square dance, it’s what ties them together.  You’ll find yourself wanting to take a turn into A Love Like This!

Few powerhouse talents are capable of taking a vision from inception all the way through to product and Kally O’Mally is one of them.    O’Mally hails from a Kentucky lineage that has generations of musical roots,  “I was enthralled by the music of my youth and far more interested in the stereo than the television.  My parents had a classic country and Southern Rock record collection that consisted of Loretta Lynn, Waylon Jennings, Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Anne Murray, Barbara Mandrell and others.”  That love of music laid the foundation of what’s clearly a longtime pursuit towards mastery and a willingness to push her own limits to bring her music to fruition.

O’Mally grew up in South Florida which helped cultivate her deep love of world musics and Latin rhythms. “South Florida is steeped in an incredible variety of world sounds, rich horn sections and energetic percussive beats; congas, bongos, steel drums, you name it.   Anything to get people grooving and dancing and having a good time.  When I’ve accomplished that, I’m happy.”  O’Mally has a particular knack for combining styles and can move from writing a classic traditional sounding song like, Bourbon on my Deathbed to the more raucous and tongue in cheek, Wild West Medicine Show.  An admitted computer geek with a competitive side, she was inspired to jump into sound engineering so she could fully execute her musical vision.  Being a multi-instrumentalist makes it even easier for her.  O’Mally is at home and comfortable playing guitar, keyboard, bass, ukulele and a whole host of percussion instruments.

O’Mally currently resides in Northern, California (Sacramento), where she performs live throughout the region.
