Country music star Garth Brooks is back! The singer, 52, announced the news today that he is planning on kicking off a three-year world tour with the first date to be announced Monday.

Brooks retired back in 2001 to raise his two young daughters.

“I want to thank God and everyone who is giving me a chance to actually look at a second half of a career. I don’t know many artists who get this chance,” Brooks said.

A new double album is set to drop around Black Friday, with new music set for release sometime in the next two months, the country superstar said during a much-anticipated live stream news conference. “The new record is gong to be a double album because we have a lot to say.

For the first time, Brooks’ fans will be able to buy some of the singles through his site,

“His big change is making his music available to download,” says Lon Helton, publisher of Country Aircheck, an industry trade publication. “And he’s not giving it to iTunes.”

Brooks, the top-selling artist in the USA since 1991, has been one of the last major holdouts in the digital realm. Some people might think “I’m giving it away, but I’m not,” he says. But it will be offered “at a stupid price.”

“I guarantee you it’s something where you buy the whole catalog,” says Kris Rochester, co-host of the syndicated radio show Tony and Kris in the Morning. “He’ll sell millions.”

Brooks has signed with Sony Music Nashville, and his new album will bear the RCA imprint. That album “is what we would traditionally think of as a double album, just because there’s a lot to say,” he says. One of the album’s songs “might very well have taken the place of The Dance as my favorite song ever.”

DMB is excited to announce their June 1, 2013 Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, as the 2

When his wife, singer Trisha Yearwood, asked if he was sure he wanted to stay on the road, he says he told her, “I’ve never been more sure of anything, because the kids are healthy, and I’m touring with you.”

Womack was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease two years ago and had been dealing with a number of health issues, including prostate cancer. Despite it all, he performed live at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, Tenn., last week and seemed in good health, according to reports.

His older brother, Friendly Womack Jr., also confirmed the sad news noting, that Bobby was found dead, in his bed.

“I was shocked, because I just spoke to him. When I talked with Bobby last night he was getting ready to go to Amsterdam, they had seven dates out there and he was telling me that he was coming back to L.A. and he had a couple of recording companies he was looking at signing with. But things happen. God has control, and whatever happens, he is in control,” Womack said.

At the time of his death, Womack was in the process of completing a new album, tentatively titled “The Best Is Yet to Come” and, according to Rolling Stone, reportedly to feature guest spots from Stevie Wonder, Rod Stewart, and Snoop Dogg.

Womack was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2009. His career spanned the gospel and doo-wop late 1950s, the soul ’60s and the funky ’70s.

The singer was most famous for  hits such as “Across 110th Street” and “Woman’s Gotta Have It.”

He was inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2009, and in 2012 he released his first album in more than a decade, “The Bravest Man in the Universe.” The album was full of electronic music and beats.

“You know more at 65 than you did at 25. I understand the songs much better now,” he told Rolling Stone at that time.

The legend also sang background and played instruments on tracks for many other artists, including Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, King Curtis, Janis Joplin and Dusty Springfield, Elvis Presley, and Sly and the Family Stone.

According to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame website, Womack sang gospel music at a young age, performing with his brothers,  The Womack Brothers.

Womack was remarried to his second wife, Regina, at the time of his death, and is survived by his wife, his two brothers, two sons and a daughter.

Funeral arrangements are incomplete, details forthcoming.

Singer Lourdes Duque Baron has released a new cover song and it’s available to download for free!

‘Cry Me A River’ Music Review

Move over teen-pop movement and make way for the baby boomers; the hipsters, propagandists — and the leader of the pack, 67 year old beauty queen, Lourdes Duque Baron. She’s coming for y’all!

Revisiting When Music Was Nice & Good…

The fifties and sixty’s brought about a revolution in music, from jazz, bebop, and big band sounds, including crooners like Sarah Vaughan, Bing Crosby, Diana Krall, Pat Boone, Sam Cooke, The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra and many more musical legends. An era where feel good music reverberated in the atmosphere…in every faction.

Fast Forward…New Age

Fast forward 4 decades to 2014 where sexual deviants, greedy music executives and mainstream ‘trends’ have hijacked much of the industry. Well music lovers, you can now thank your lucky stars, because break-out soloist, Lourdes is giving us all a taste of what we have been missing. Baron, a sexy, hip-swiveling debutante, clearly influenced by her era.

Frank Zappa Fans, Rejoice

The ‘Feeling Good At Any Age’ singer has put her spin on Diana Krall’s ‘Cry Me A River,‘ the red stamp and made it her own – with the release of an fervent version of the hit single.

A waterfall of tears, booming chords infused with spite and retribution, (“You drove me, nearly drove me, out of my head, While you never shed a tear, Remember, I remember, all that you said”)  Baron’s pounding, fiery score weaving the single into a twisted work of drama and ill humor. I can dig it!

It’s completely lovely in an effortless sort of way.

Lourdes is providing music lovers a fulcrum of possibility. Her soulful, fusion vibes helps to create the possibility for a national, even worldwide phenomenon.

Lourdes Duque Baron ‘Feeling Good’ – New Music Review

 “It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life…for me and I’m feeling good. Fish in the sea, you know how I feel. River running free, you know how I feel. Blossom on the tree, you know how I feel. It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day…it’s a new life… for me…and I’m feeling good,” Lourdes Duque Baron pompously declares over a volley of chords, amplified resonance, rhythm, measure and melody in the dramatic introduction to Feeling Good.

Lourdes Duque Baron — ‘Feeling Good’

Let’s face it. Subtlety was never the 67 -year-old’s strong point. From the amazing cover of Amy Winehouse’s, Me & Mr. Jones to others like, Our Day Will Come, a “jaunty, twangy trip inside the psyche of every woman.” The come-hither baby boomer wants the world to know that she is here, bitches – and feels good about it! Hell yes! Baron has survived the toxic terrain of the 60′s & 70′s – the American feminist movement, where a generation of college-educated housewives felt trapped and unfulfilled. Today, post woman’s rights turf – is now ready to – excuse the awful plant metaphor – bloom again!

#TeamBaron knows that the big-lunged songbirds voice & sheer will sets her apart and they’ve taken every opportunity to show it off.

The Andrew Lane produced anthem is a simmering adrenalin-charged shot of pop & soul that proves once and for all that age is nothing but a number. Talent, passion & beauty trumps all – and a phenomenal, inspiring entertainer… almost 70 years old can in fact be very marketable and packaged…like so…fitting rather comfortably in the new age sound-scape that has taken over the music industry. Heaven is smiling …and with an instrument as powerful as this — well, it’s no wonder why she’s hot.Baron delivers tracks that reel in music lovers young & old — and you can bet your bottom dollar – long after the buzz subsides this Feel Good crooner…will still be winning.

Feeling Good is now available for purchase through many digital platforms, click here.

Singer August Alsina has had an amazing career the past couple years, seeing massive success for his hit singles “Ghetto” featuring Rich Homie Quan and “Make It Home” featuring Young Jeezy.

Yesterday Alsina stopped by 106 & Park to promote his new album, ‘Testimony,” and during the interview, well — something we can only label ‘weird and unusual’ happened.

106 & Park host Keshia Chante decided to push her luck and ask a question that apparently was to be off limits. Now if you remember a few weeks ago a VladTV interview with August went viral. He was addressing the cancellation of a show that was supposed to take place with him and Trey Songz. In the video he implied Trey Songz thought he was better than him and was acting funny. August said straight up, “I don’t f@*k with Trey”! Keshia asked if he thought the two could bury the hatchet and this is what happened…


“So you just gonna go against the grain and go against everything that … I just told ya’ll not to ask me that [expletive] when I got up in here,” he replied to Chante.

Check out the interview below, which includes graphic language.

Lourdes D. Baron’s ‘Me & Mr. Jones’ Headed to Billboards Hot 100, this you can be sure of.

Then the lo-fi beats set in and the voice begins anew, recalling Emily Blunt in her heyday, before wings soaring upward, epitomizing hot chicks with super power & smarts that our Mothers and Grandmothers would be proud of. Girl Power at its finest and the lyrics, well… are both acerbic and buoyant. And whether they realize it or not, our Men, they can never…will ever… get enough of us, them, super hot, feisty chicks with super powers — that shoal can sing.

The song is off the singers ‘Feeling Good At Any Age,’ album which is slated for release June 2014 by way of Drew Right Music.
