Jerry Reed Brings On The Heat -- Releases LIVE STILL April 19

"It was one of those nights when the band was on, I was on and so was the audience. It was magic." - Jerry Reed

Nashville, TN (February 21, 2005) - With over 50 years of entertaining behind him, audiences might wonder whether Jerry Reed can still bring on the heat. Jerry ReedPut your fears to rest: "The Guitar Man" is as hot as ever. LIVE STILL is just that: a live recording of eight of Reed's greatest hits and two outstanding new songs taped during a performance in Parsons, Kansas last year. LIVE STILL is proof that Reed is a master craftsman whose arsenal still includes that voice - that guitar - and more damned charisma than the law allows. Co-produced by Reed and Chet Hinesley (Doug Stone, Tony Joe White) and distributed by REDEYE, the R2K Records' release will be available in stores on April 19.

LIVE STILL is testimony to the well-roundedness of Jerry's long and successful career. That career is far from over, even though Jerry "officially" ended his touring days last fall. His upcoming single, "Father Time And Gravity," shows his energy and sense of humor are still intact. An irreverent and hilarious self- examination of the aging process, the record is sure to ring bells with anyone over the age of 30. "A Brand New Me" is a gospel-tinged nod to his Savior and the "country-church" sound made popular by The Statler Brothers

Jerry captivates and controls on this 10-song selection, from the opening notes of "Guitar Man," to the very last note played. His style is unmistakable - - and the race is on as Reed rips through his smash hits: "When You're Hot You're Hot"; "She Got The Goldmine (I Got The Shaft)"; "East Bound And Down"; "Amos Moses"; "Thing Called Love"; "Lord Mr. Ford" and "Jerry's Breakdown Revisited." These radio classics are played with Jerry's signature purpose, deftness and determination. His gut string and electric are prominent throughout, and his long- time band members, Bobby Lovett; Mark Thornton; John Riffe; Ms. Priss; Mike Bush; Jerry Roe and Hargus "Pig" Robbins tie it all together

Lisa O'Kane's New Single "Sometimes" Hits International Radio Tomorrow

"Sometimes you lose, sometimes you win Sometimes you think you'll never find your way again And sometimes you just don't Lisa O'Kane know Which way your life will go Stuck in the ebb and flow" O'Kane/Fosson

Nashville, TN (February 28, 2005) - Lisa O'Kane's voice is a silver thread weaving magic on "Sometimes." The song's intricate structure is highlighted by an ever-evolving chorus that is compelling and fine-tuned. The latest release from this California singer/songwriter, "Sometimes," hits international radio tomorrow via the March Country HotDisc.

Written by Lisa and partner Mark Fosson, the track evokes the winsomeness of Judy Collins's best and the earthiness of early Roseanne Cash. Fosson's finger-style acoustic is impeccable as always, and Ed Tree offers talented assistance on acoustic and electric. Jay Dee Maness rings on the pedal steel; Bob Glaub's bass is flawless and David Raven shows a gentle touch on drums. The combined vocal harmonies of Fosson and Charity Chapman offer a brilliant counterpoint to Lisa's vocal ballet.

Lisa's success cannot be denied. She is a remarkable talent in her prime. Look for "Sometimes" to join the long list of O'Kane #1s. As Roots Music Report says, "This is pure, pleasing country music that screams to be heard."
