Jim Ed Brown
In Style Again
Opry member, Jim Ed Brown’s new CD, In Style Again, is his first studio album in 30
years. This project is a musical gem with Jim Ed delivering each song with his characteristic smooth vocal style and an underlying depth that only comes with age and understanding. Of particular interest is the title cut, “In Style Again.” It’s unbelievable that the
music industry would allow such talent to go unrecorded for so long, but with the release of this album, Jim Ed Brown proves that he is always in style!
RailRoad Rob
Leaving On That Train Southbound
Railroad Rob brings back some familiar tunes on his CD, Leaving On That Train
Southbound. From “The Auctioneer Song,” “Wabash Cannon Ball,” Blue Moon Of
Kentucky” and “The Wreck Of Old #9,” there is plenty to enjoy on this project. Railroad Rob is obviously having fun with this country/bluegrass production and it shows in
his vocals. The album culminates with a sobering rendition of the spiritual “How Great
Thou Art.”

A Special Moment with Dolly Parton
Ronnie McDowell is highly respected by his peers and loved by his fans. Radio favorites and chart topper’s such as “Older Women” and “You’re Gonna
Ruin My Bad Reputation,” along with “Watchin’ Girls Go By,” “All Tied
Up” and “In A New York Minute” laid the foundation to an impressive career
spanning more than forty years.
It wasn't that long ago that Ronnie was presented with the opportunity to sing
a duet with the legendary Dolly Parton called “Last Night I Dreamed About
Elvis.” It seemed like the obvious choice because she knew he had the same
love for Elvis as she did. Dolly shared with Ronnie her story about the time
Elvis wanted to record “I Will Always Love You,” she was so excited about it
and had told everyone. Due to disagreements over publishing with Colonel
Tom Parker, Elvis’ manager, Dolly never got her Elvis moment.
Touched by the story, Ronnie put one of his lesser known talents to work and
not only created an Elvis moment for Dolly, but one designed to stand the test
of time. Ronnie shares, “When the time came to reveal the big surprise,
I took the cover off and Dolly’s expression was priceless and was followed by screams and more screams. I filmed it and I’m so glad I did
because it was magic.”
Painting description: Elvis and Dolly are on a picnic in her hometown
of Sevierville, TN with the Great Smoky Mountains in the background.
The lyric sheet to “I Will Always Love You,” which is also the name of
the painting, is laying on the blanket with Dolly holding her guitar with
a butterfly resting gently on it.
When Dolly had a moment to compose herself, she exclaimed
“Damn! I WISH I looked that good!”

her debut single "Hot Lipz" via its colorful, high-energy video, which features Annie in a day/night roller rink

in late spring or early summer.
