The MICKEYS Sail To The Top Of The Chart
With Their Smash Single "Old Kentucky Wind"

   Nashville, TN (October 30, 2003) - - The MICKEYS sail to the top of the Euro chart with their smash single "Old Kentucky Wind." After four weeks the record hits the #1 spot, taking the acoustic/roots musical twins on their first trip to the top.
  "We are overwhelmed with the success of "Old Kentucky Wind," says Julie Mickey. "Amy and I want to thank everyone – the DJs, fans, the songwriters, media and our support staff – for making this happen. We look forward to meeting all of our new international friends and fans in 2004, when we plan to tour Germany, Switzerland and Canada."
   This year’s CMA week will be a busy one for the duo, who will be conducting interviews and can be seen on the upcoming pre-CMA Awards Special "Countdown To Country." The show will air in various markets in Tennessee, Kentucky, Arkansas, Texas and Georgia on November 5.

   Nashville -When Cross Canadian Ragweed materialized onto the Midwestern music scene some years back, their unique blend of country rock fell like a sledgehammer upon unsuspecting ears. Their somewhat puzzling name quickly became common words on the lips of media and music enthusiasts alike launching them full force onto a higher platform along side of rock icons like Lynyrd Skynyrd and ZZ Top. It was a constant uphill jaunt for the guys after they took their first "touring steps" and it wasn't long until every venue in the Midwest was on the phone with booking agents trying to set a date. Though at first it was hard to pin point exactly what it was that the band was able to create on stage, it came to be known as that certain "magic" bestowed only upon a certain few. Childhood friends and music blood brothers, Cody Canada, Grady Cross, Jeremy Plato, and Randy Ragsdale travel a road rich with creative prosperity, and now they are tearing it up in even bigger company.
   In the few years leading up to the band's signing with Universal South Records, Ragweed had developed a reputation that thrust them into the world of "arena," playing in company with musicians such as Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Hank Williams Jr., Rodney Crowell, Billy Joe Shaver, and Lee Ann Womack. Now at the end of 2003, with a ferocious crew of support behind them, Ragweed has roamed out of the yard to "piss with the big dogs." Scott Galloway at the William Morris Agency comments on his experience working with the band.
   "It has been a GREAT year. By the end of 2003, CROSS CANADIAN RAGWEED will
have performed in 2 countries, 33 states, and 120 cities delivering their one-of-a-kind musical revolution to the die-hards as well as gaining new friends and legions of fans every step of the way. They have done so much "damage" on the road this year that the big dogs took notice and they were invited to tour with Lynyrd Skynyrd, Sammy Hagar, and ZZ Top. They were so well received and so embraced by the bands themselves, that there is no doubt in my mind that Cross Canadian Ragweed is the heir apparent to these rock n' roll icons. They will carry the torch. These guys rock like they'll live forever and they play every show like it's their last. Cross Canadian Ragweed is the real deal and I will say the same thing 30 years from now. These guys are SERIOUS. You can quote me on that."

Cross Canadian Ragweed will appear:
w/ Lynyrd Skynyrd on 10/30 in Little Rock, Arkansas
w/ Lynyrd Skynyrd on 10/31 in Bossier City, Louisiana
w/ ZZ Top on 11/20 in Knoxville, Tennessee
