Rustie Blue had this to say upon hearing about the award: I'm overwhelmed to have Rustie Blue - country music singerrecorded with the Legendary "Whisperin Bill Anderson; It was such an honor! I'm so thankful to have had the song "Chip Chip" reach the #1 position on the ECMA chart in October, stay on the chart for several weeks, and still is high on the chart, to have performed with Bill Anderson on January 8th, 2005 at the "Midnite Jamboree" in Nashville, to hear Bill announce that night that he is releasing his new album, "The Way I Feel" and included “Chip Chip” on the album, to be nominated by the ECMA for "Vocal Collaboration Of The Year", now to win in that category! What an honor! Thanks goes 1st to my fans, you are the reason I do what I do, to the ECMA and the DJ's that played “Chip Chip”, thanks to Bill for giving me the privilege of recording “Chip Chip” with him and for all of his support, thanks to my entire music team, you are the bridge between my fans and me! I'm definitely on a high!"

Presents Tribute To Pete Sayers In May
Festival Appearances & Concert Tours Announced

One of Nashville’s most popular exports, George Hamilton IV, is set to present a George Hamilton IV, country music singerspecial tribute to Pete Sayers on his forthcoming visit. Titling the event “On A Blue Ridge Sunday”, it will take place on Sunday, May 15, at St. Andrew’s Church in Isleham, Cambridgeshire.

George explains that “it’ll be an evening of country-gospel music with special guests and a few of Pete’s pickin’ buddies”. Admission is free and there will be a collection with all proceeds to the church repair fund.

Pete Sayers was one of Britain’s most successful country music entertainers who, in the late 1960s/early 70s, enjoyed a successful career in Nashville with his own television series. Upon his return to Britain he created his band the Radio Cowboys, launched the Newmarket Opry and enjoyed a diverse career that took in recording, television shows, touring and summer seasons. He died on February 11, following a lengthy battle with cancer.

The forthcoming tribute is part of George IV's latest round of British appearances which takes in both secular and religious performances, and commenced last month with a 2½ week (March 13-29) concert tour of Ireland and Scotland with Scottish folk singer Alastair McDonald. It was followed by a brief return to native shores for a week of concerts in Ontario, Canada (April 5-11).

George IV returns to the U.K. later this month to present his unique country-gospel show in English Churches followed, in May, by a tour of Scottish Churches.

Among the other highlights scheduled in this ever busy entertainer’s diary are:

  • Appearance at Paul Wheater’s Whitby Gospel Music Convention in Whitby, Yorkshire (May 20-22)

  • Special guest appearance at the 25th Americana Festival in Newark, Notts (July 10)

  • Dutch tour (August 8-14), including an appearance at the annual Floralia Festival in Oosterhout (14);

  • Irish tour with Nashville singer/songwriters Barry & Holly Tashian (August 15-23)

  • Appearance at the Scottish Country Music Festival, at the Haven Holiday Park in Ayr (November 5).

Last autumn George Hamilton IV was presented with a Special Award from the BCMA (British Country Music Association) in recognition of his groundbreaking international activities over the years. With his forthcoming schedule, it’s obvious that the International Ambassador of Country Music doesn’t intend to rest upon his laurels!
