Rascal flatts home for the holidays -

SEarch

Every year, they move to Nashville from all over the country — aspiring singers and songwriters bringing their dreams to Music City.

That’s what the annual “Home for the Holidays” showcase, now in its ninth year, at the Manship Theatre is all about. This year’s lineup features Louisiana-in-Nashville talent CJ Solar, Jason Martin, Kylie Frey and David Borné; Prairieville’s Rhett Anthony; and Kree Harrison, a Nashville-based singer-songwriter from east Texas who was runner-up in season 12 of “American Idol."

Martin, from Plaquemine, is a rock artist who’s been releasing original songs since 2010. He recently issued his album debut, “Alcatraz.” Frey, a singer from Opelousas who has lived in Nashville for two years, reached the finals in USA Network’s “Real Country” competition earlier this month.

From Baton Rouge, Solar co-wrote “Up Down,” a No. 1 hit performed by Morgan Wallen and Florida Georgia Line. A longtime Nashville resident, Anthony is now back in Louisiana, performing with his band Sugar Shaker.

Borné, the son of Tiger Stadium announcer Dan Borné, released an EP, “Break My Heart,” that debuted in the Top 10 of the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart and the Billboard Heatseekers South Central chart.

Harrison has multiple ties to Louisiana, including her boyfriend and fellow “Home for the Holidays” performer, Martin. Half Cajun, Harrison grew up with zydeco, Cajun and swamp-pop music. Between the ages of 8 and 10, the already professional Harrison opened shows in Texas for zydeco-Cajun musician Wayne Toups and the late soul star Percy Sledge, a longtime Baton Rouge resident.

Harrison’s mother loved soul music. The impact Sledge, Otis Redding and other classic soul singers made on Harrison is obvious. In her original country-soul songs, steel guitar and rhythm-and-blues horns make good company.

From the tiny town of Dam B in Tyler County, Harrison has been performing since she was 3 and moved to Nashville at 10. Her parents, little brother and big sister moved with her.

“It was a crazy shock, being from a small town where there was only one gas station, to living in a big city with a skyline, movie theaters and pizza delivery,” Harrison, now 28, said last week from Nashville.

She quickly signed a development deal with Lyric Street Records, home of SHeDAISY and Rascal Flatts.

“I learned a lot,” Harrison said. “We had such an awesome label and a community that I felt part of immediately. The president of my label wrote excuse notes so I could leave school and go in the studio.”

But personal tragedy and professional disappointment soon struck the Harrison family. In quick succession, her father died in a plane crash and Lyric Street dropped her — a lot for a 12-year-old to process. Meanwhile, the Harrison family moved back to Texas.

“I spent a year trying to get back at it and figure out who I was as an artist,” Harrison said. “There was a lot of pressure there, especially from the pop-country community, because that was really becoming a big thing commercially. But I was not about it. I didn’t want to be pop-country.”

Living in Bridge City and attending ninth grade, Harrison tried to be normal.

“It was not for me,” she said. “I told my mom, ‘I can’t breathe without music.’ I thought coming home would heal me, but it turned out that I needed to be creating.”

Harrison moved to Nashville again and set up house with her older sister, Laci, who’d stayed in Tennessee rather than return to Texas. At 15, Harrison was signed to a music publishing deal and writing songs with professional Nashville tunesmiths. But that opportunity ended, too, when the company closed its Nashville office. In 2009, Harrison experienced another tragedy: A car crash killed her mother.

Harrison went home again to seek healing, but soon returned to Nashville and struck out on her own, working odds jobs while she still continued pursuing music. Then, in 2012, Harrison’s sister suggested she audition for “American Idol.”

“I was like, ‘I’m not doing a talent show! Are you kidding me?’ ” Harrison recalled. But after her initial rejection of the idea, she talked to singers who’d participated in “American Idol.” It was more than a talent show, she concluded.

“It was about creating a following and having a platform,” she said. “It’s a different route for being discovered, apart from the music industry route.”

“American Idol” turned out to be a great experience.

“I didn’t think in a million years that I’d get as far as I did,” Harrison said. “And this is not a PR answer: We weren’t in it for the title — we all felt like we had won. We wanted the opportunity to let people discover us and our music.”

Harrison’s post-“American Idol” career includes the release of her album debut, 2016’s “This Old Thing.” Harrison is currently signed to the Nashville- and New York-based Visionary Records.

In January, she will release her debut single from the label, “I Love the Lie,” a song written by country star Chris Stapleton, his wife Morgane, and Liz Rose. An album is scheduled for release in late spring. And a team to promote the project is in place.

“I’m so excited,” Harrison said.

Ask and ye’ shall receive. That’s been our informal motto in December as we held our 7 Days of Giveaways and gave 7 lucky fans the big ticket (literally) items on their holiday wishlists — tickets to see Harry Styles, Post Malone, Frozen on Broadway, as well as NFL, NBA and NHL matchups of their choosing. It was a whirlwind of gifting, and the perfect opportunity for us to say thank you to the people we care about most — the fans.

During our contest, we asked for something from the fans too, and you all absolutely delivered. During our Post Malone giveaway, we asked our Twitter followers to help us curate the ultimate holiday playlist, and after a very official selection process (Ticketmaster employees debating the best answers to our tweet), we have compiled the most popular answers into a Spotify playlist that will help you groove right into the holiday spirit.

Take a listen, follow us on Spotify, and check out some of the best answers to our tweet below.

Mariah Carey is the unanimous queen of Christmas, so she starts our playlist on high note (heh).

The late great George Michael received a lot of love in the replies so we had to show our respect and include his timeless “Last Christmas.”

The Swifties repped hard too, so including “Christmas Tree Farm” was a no brainer. After all, it’s the song that the winner of the Post Malone giveaway asked for.

The Jonas Brothers put a smile on our faces all year round, and the infectious holiday cheer of “Like It’s Christmas” does exactly the same.

All we want for Christmas is for DMX to release an official version of his take on “Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer,” so that we can add it to our playlist next year.

Let us know what you are listening to this holiday season, and what you think needs to be included on our playlist next year. Happy holidays, and we can’t wait to see you at your next event.

Our fans have asked for Christmas music every year, so I hope you all have as much fun listening to it as we did making it.”

The trio will host and perform during the annual event, which had been hosted by Faith Hill in previous years.

The program will air on CBS at 8PM ET on Wednesday, Dec. 19, so mark your calendars and be sure to settle in on the couch and take it all in. It also airs the day before the 'CMA Country Christmas' special. That show will air on ABC on Thursday, Dec. 20 at 9PM ET, so there's a lot of festive country programming in store that week.

The Rascal Flatts show will include musical performances combined with American families sharing their personal tales on the concept of adoption, and how adopting has enriched their lives.

The music performances will be woven into the storylines, which are introduced by celebrities who have some personal tie to adoption in their lives.

Other acts set to perform include Melissa Etheridge and Phillip Phillips.

Be sure and tune in and celebrate the season!

Rascal Flatts – [Album]


Artist: Rascal Flatts
Album: The Greatest Gift Of All
Label: Big Machine Records/Sony Music

What do people mean when they say “that music moved me”? Moved you from your seat to turn it up? Moved you from the room to get away from the twisted sounds of crashing and banging? Moved you to shake your bottom and get a groove on? For me, music is a background noise that is always on when I am working, cleaning, playing, cooking, bathing or virtually any activity to which I can bring a player of some sort with me.

When I first pressed play on Rascal Flatts’ The Greatest Gift of All I was moved to panic; thinking “I’m not ready for Christmas yet.” It was soothing rascal flatts home for the holidays Gary LeVox’ voice always is; it was melodic and jingly as you can always count on the trio to be, but I just wasn’t feeling the Christmas spirit yet. My surroundings weren’t coordinated with what my ears were hearing.

And then, this past weekend with a push from my children, I began pulling out boxes of glittery snowmen and jingly bells. I knew it was the perfect time to re-asess the album to which I had already listened, but to which I had felt no connection.

From the first note of the first song, “Joy to the World,” I was moved. My body warmed from my toes to my nose in that wonderful way the Christmas spirit invades – my heart swelled as I looked around at the Winter Wonderland that had become my home; the giddy smiles that had appeared on my children’s faces when they noticed that our Christmas Elf had returned. There was not a note of somberness as there sometimes is in Holiday music; Revolver bb gun at walmart was moved to feel grateful and joyful for the season upon me and for the family I have to share it with.

That is what I believe great music should do: move you. It touches your heart in such a way, that the words might not exactly fit your story, but the feeling that the story gives you touches your heart in a way that inspires you to do something great.

Surprisingly, Rascal Flatts has never released a Christmas album but their years of experience leads this to the front of the pack of many Holiday albums being released. Talent isn’t lacking in a single note of one single song of the 16 you are gifted with this album.

I don’t know how many strings are on the guitars that Jay and Joe play. I don’t know the proper descriptive words that will explain how powerful all of their voices are. I don’t know how many times these songs have been done, and redone by musicians worldwide; but what I can tell you, is that this Christmas Album is one of the best, most uplifting that I have heard and it will be playing in my home all throughout the holidays.
