bt Music News #7 “We” are growing
We are at #7 and going strong. A big thanks to everyone supporting our efforts. We are having more and more bands share our post but not only bands but just lovers of music. Sharing these articles are the best way to help spread the news! We are working with a few venues and outlets in the area to help with just that. In the next few month you'll be seeing us in more areas & associated with more pages involving music and musicians so stay tuned!
Attention Bands! If you want us to showcase one of your songs from a recent release email us a copy and if picked we'll embed it in our newsletter along with a short bio and links to your site. Email songs to firstname.lastname@example.org
OUR GOAL: To introduce you to local artists ...sometimes hidden in the far reaches of the hills of Appalachia
Hillbilly Days 2017 will be April 20 - April 22 and a big part of our Hillbilly Days is the live entertainment on the Billy Johnson Stage. Live bands & solo artists playing all three days. It's always a great time and a great opportunity to see our regional artists at there best. bt Media Group has been tasked to take care of the booking this year and we'll be making announcements about that soon.
The Corbin Arena is on our radar again this month. They have been on fire booking great country and rock shows. This week they announced Hip Hop act Flo-rida (April 15th) & Travis Tritt with Charlie Daniels in May. Great to see arena's and theaters bring in solid acts.

Allman Brothers Band Drummer Butch Trucks, 1947-2017
Saddened to hear that Butch Trucks died. One of the founding members of the Allman Brothers Band and — along with Jai Johanny “Jaimoe” Johanson — a God Father of the two-drummer concept, Trucks' style and creativity will never be forgotten. May he rest in peace.
