Johnny Lee´s Daughter, Cherish Lee, releases debut album

Billboard Country Artist To Watch,  Cherish Lee, debuted her album, Tequila Cowgirl, to a packed audience in Nashville on Thursday night. Nashville Country Club and Nashville Noise debuted songs from the album. Cherish was introduced onstage by actress and childhood friend, Kaitlin Doubleday, star of the show Nashville and Empire.

 

"[Tequila Cowgirl] was the perfect introduction to Lee and her classic country sound with a rock ‘n roll edge. After all, “This Ain’t Your Grandma’s Country Song.” The debut album is now days away from its release and it can best be described as honest storytelling. Lee doesn’t pretend to have it all together (you’ll notice that in “Diamonds and Flaws”) and she’s unapologetically herself. She co-wrote all of the song’s tracks, making this debut truly her own story." - Coti Howell, Nashville Noise

 

Music industry VIP guests, media and her fans enjoyed a private tasting of award winning G4 Tequila as they raised a glass to celebrate the release of Tequila Cowgirlby Cherish Lee. During the performance of "Wyatt's Song," a surprise appearance by the Tennessee Titans cheerleaders dancing and sprinkling confetti throughout the venue brought a unique element of fun to the celebration. Fellow Billboard Country Artist to Watch, Lewis Brice joined her on the duet "One Pillow Over" and Rion Paige performed a stunning opening set.

The King of Country, George Strait, announces two shows in Las Vegas.

The King of Country George Strait will play two final shows in 2018 on December 7-8 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas with special guests Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen. Tickets go on sale in one month on Friday, April 6 at 10 a.m. PT at www.StraitToVegas.com.

 

The trio of Texans shared the stage earlier this month for the first shows of 2018 after initially coming together last year for Hand in Hand Texas: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief, which was a humanitarian campaign assembled by Strait—a night that ultimately raised tens of millions of dollars for hurricane relief efforts. Strait will be recognized by his home state with the prestigious Texan of the Year honor on March 22 in New Braunfels, Texas.

 

With an unmatched 60 singles hitting the top of the charts – more than any other artist in any genre – during the span of his 30-year career, Strait is the undeniable “King of Country Music.” He has collected 33 Platinum or multi-Platinum-selling albums, more than any country artist and third across all genres behind only the Beatles and Elvis Presley. Strait has sold nearly 70 million albums and earned more than 60 major entertainment industry awards including induction in the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006.
