The hard-working mother-of-three spoke with People about the ups and downs of motherhood, postpartum depression and having “the coolest job on earth.” –

“For a mom, sometimes it’s all about just getting through the day,” said Kellogg. “But our kids look up to us so much and they truly think that we’re incredible. We could be having the worst day of our lives, and there are our kids thinking that we are the best mom ever.”

And Kellogg finds strength through other women in country music who inspire her as she navigates her career as an artist as well as her full-time job as a mother. She named just a few of those incredible artists in her Motherhood Playlist with Sounds Like Nashville

She has a dedicated fanbase that grows daily filled with those who find their stories told through her “emotional and uplifting lyrics…paired with sweeping instrumentation” (Sounds Like Nashville).

And “Hey Mama” is truly a family affair as Kellogg’s youngest makes her recording debut. The Nash News notes, “The beautiful song also features Kellogg’s adorable three-year-old daughter, Harlow singing on one of the verses, so if you weren’t already tearing up, just wait until you hear her angelic voice.” –

Kellogg has previously shared the stage with some of country music’s biggest names including Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, Little Big Town, Kane Brown, Chris Young, Lee Brice, and Martina McBride. She is currently on the road this summer and fall introducing her new music to fans.

About Jordan Rowe:
Jordan Rowe’s love for music and dream to become a successful Country artist began when he was just a kid in the small town of Adel in the heart of South Georgia.

His artistry has been described as “traditional as Alan Jackson, but as fresh, young, and fun as Jon Pardi.” He grew up listening to artists such as Joe Diffie, Alan Jackson, and Luke Bryan— all of who have played a major role in how he has crafted his sound. Rowe studied agribusiness and music business at the University of Georgia. While attending college five hours from music city, he would travel back and forth on breaks and weekends to intern at River House Artists. He began to write with some of country music’s most recent hit songwriters such as Ray Fulcher, Thomas Archer, and Cole Taylor and has since made the move to Nashville in 2019.

Rowe’s debut album Bad Case of the Good Ole Boy dropped on Aug. 6 and includes features from some of Nashville’s hottest rising artists and Country legends. Produced by Derek Wells, the new record showcases Rowe’s ability to mix progressive production with modern twists while staying true to his traditional roots.

No strangers to crossover success, the Bellamy Brothers transcend genres on Covers From The Brothers, which also includes everything from some of their favorites by Bob Dylan (“Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door”) and Stevie Wonder (“I Just Called to Say I Love You”) to the songs they performed countless times in their early bands like “Games People Play” (Joe South).

“I Can Help” featuring Dennis Quaid was released as the project’s lead single on July 9 along with a video to accompany the “rollicking track” (Taste of Country). The Bellamys filmed the video during their recording session with Quaid where they “got to witness a transformation that crossed a veteran actors’ creative process with his lifelong love of music (Wide Open Country).” premiered the video, filmed by Derrek Kupish of dkupish productions, while the trio debuted their live version on the Grand Ole Opry.

The Bellamy Brothers were inspired to record an entire album of covers after a label in Switzerland asked them to cut a couple of covers for a duets project. Produced by the Bellamy Brothers and Randy Hiebert, the 12-song collection also includes the talents of Paul Franklin from Vince Gill’s band and Jenee Fleenor from Blake Shelton’s band. Covers From The Brothers follows the Bellamys’ 2020 Bucket List EP that included their collaboration with John Anderson, “No Country Music For Old Men,” which has amassed over 3 million views.

When the stay-at-home orders took effect in March of 2020, the Bellamy Brothers were on Blake Shelton’s Friends And Heroes Tour. They returned to their Florida homestead where their hit reality series, “Honky Tonk Ranch,” is filmed and stayed busy through a partnership with the Florida-based medical marijuana company Trulieve on their Old Hippie Stash flower product line. The Bellamys recently celebrated the one-year anniversary of that partnership and are back on the road performing to fans across the country and gearing up for their 2022 European tour.

Jackson Melnick’s Abilene available today

Produced by Christopher Henry (Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band) and featuring Jason Carter, Matt Combs, Alex Leach, Tuck Tucker, and Cory Walker

Colorado songwriter Jackson Melnick is pleased to announce the release of his album, Abilene. Available everywhere today, Abilene finds Melnick’s songwriting prowess matched perfectly with the musical talent of collaborators Jason Carter, Matt Combs, Alex Leach, Tuck Tucker, and Cory Walker. Christopher Henry from Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band helmed the band as producer. Although the arrangements draw on the traditional sound of Bill Monroe and Ralph Stanley, among others, Abilene is at heart a songwriter’s record. Across these 10 tracks, Melnick combines his reverence for bluegrass with a lyrical point of view that is both mystical and topical.
Growing up in Crested Butte, Colorado, Melnick began meditating when he was 8 years old. Within a few years, he learned to play guitar and started busking—first singing John Denver and Steve Earle songs, then moving toward Dylan classics. Through most of his teenage years he hosted a weekly radio show on a local community station, too. But the most transformative moment may have been when he was 17 years old and saw a video of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings on stage. “I was watching them, and I felt like I knew exactly what they were doing, and how they did it. It was a transmission, like, ‘I know how to do that,’” Melnick recalls. “It hit me like a stack of bricks. Then I went to my guitar and I wrote three songs. They just sort of poured out and that was the beginning for me.”
Spend some time with Abilene today on your preferred listening platform. More details here.

10 Year Anniversary Tour Stops in Hometown with Ryman Auditorium Shows

Truly a product of their raising, THE CADILLAC THREE returned to their hometown of Nashville for a two-night stint at the Ryman Auditorium exuding the same fervor of their youth. Singer-guitarist Jaren Johnston, drummer Neil Mason and lap-steel guitarist Kelby Ray have been performing together since their high school days and officially celebrate a decade as TC3 with their 10th Anniversary Tour, which traverses the globe through December. Last night the always-amplified trio launched with signature “I’m Southern” as “Tennessee Mojo,” “Bury Me In My Boots,” American Slang,” “The Jam” and more followed. The palpable energy from their instinctive sonic tendencies and chart-topping songwriting rolled through a myriad of jams incorporating Country, Rock and Funk fusion.

“We’re grateful to be here with you all tonight in our hometown of Nashville, Tennessee! This past year has been hard on fans, families and independent venues so we’ve tried to help highlight these special rooms where so many memories – and for some of you, a few babies – are made,” joked Jaren. “It’s been a hell of ride with Neil and Kelby, but being back at the Ryman to play you all songs from over a decade of life is pretty badass!”

Last night’s (9/1) set kicked off with Hey Steve and Boy Named Banjo will heat up the crowd tonight (9/2). Also making a debut, TC3’s collaboration with Flytes Brewhouse on Country Buzz Beer. The honey amber ale, brewed with Cascade Hopes and honey (5.5% ABV) is available at Ryman concessions during TC3’s shows as well as the Pleasant View, TN brewhouse and select locations in Nashville and surrounding areas. More details on the brew here.

“I discovered Flytes on a motorcycle ride one day and quickly became a fan,” recounts Kelby. “Fast forward about a year and it turns out, owners John and Trish Nelson are actually fans of ours too so we all thought it would be pretty cool to create something. We all got together and created our own unique flavor! Country Buzz Beer is just like us – unexpected, refreshing and a little buzzed! If you’re a beer fan, you’ll love Country Buzz!”

TC3 has remained resolute in their creativity, releasing two albums in 2020 – February’s COUNTRY FUZZ and October’s surprise TABASCO & SWEET TEA – hosting COUNTRY FUZZ RADIO and serving the music community. The Cadillac Three’s contribution to a year like no other can be measured in albums released, songs released (28), live-streamed shows recorded, donations collected, venues supported, mouths fed, and positive messages sent. Landing a spot on the revered list [ACM Awards], among their friends, collaborators, and peers, feels like a victory for the trio who has never stopped putting in the work,” observes AMERICAN SONGWRITER. With “Long After Last Call” Rolling Stone noted TC3 “Sound the Alarm for Clubs in Crisis” while their “Bridges” music video shoot teamed up with Music Venue Alliance Nashville.

Neil shares, “playing music together and figuring out life on the road is all we’ve known for most of our lives. Jaren, Kelby and I are hopeful and really happy to be back on the stage seeing familiar faces in the crowd and some new ones singing along. Stay safe everyone!”

As the last note of their GOLD-certified “The South” reverberated, it’s clear TC3’s musical roots run deep.

When hearing of Warner Music Nashville’s rising band BEXAR, you might stop and ask yourself, “is it bex-ar? Where does the “x” come from?” Well, BEXAR has arrived with their major label debut EP to set the record straight: it’s Pronounced BEAR (LISTEN HERE). An ode to the phonetic spelling of the band’s name, which originates from lead vocalist Chris Ryan’s home turf of Bexar County, TX, the six-track EP was produced by award-winning producers Ross Copperman and Luke Laird and showcases the band’s fresh and expressive sound, with all tracks co-written by at least one band member.
“We’re super excited for the album to be out now,” said the band. “These songs really do mean the world to us, and we feel it’s exactly what we want to say and how we want to say it. Ross and Luke really understood our vision for this EP and were a big part of bringing that vision to life.”
BEXAR started teasing the EP with their first major label song release, “Again,” which Billboard called “serious earworm potential.” MusicRow raved about the track, stating “put this on your playlist at once.” The band followed with “One Day” and most recently “Key To Life,” which Rolling Stone described as “an amiable slice of folk-pop with hints of the Lumineers and Avett Brothers.” Now, with the full EP out, fans can hear new tracks “Carry You Home,” “Be Good To Her” and “Mexico.” The body of work helps define their mix of timeless and trendy, blending their backgrounds to create a combination of Texas country and Kentucky bluegrass. American Songwriter’s The Zak Kuhn Show summarized the BEXAR brand well by stating, “these guys are going to make you wish you were in a band.”
BEXAR will soon bring the new EP to their live show when they join superstar Keith Urban on “Keith Urban Live – Las Vegas” from September 17-25. “We can’t think of a better way to follow up the release of our EP than to go out on tour with one of our biggest musical influences,” said the band. “We’re super grateful to him and his team for deciding to bring us out on the road and give us this opportunity.” The residency will take place at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, and tickets can be purchased HERE.
The band, comprised of Chris Ryan (lead vocals/guitar) and Logan Turner (vocals/banjo/guitar), draws inspiration from groups such as Mumford & Sons, The Avett Brothers and Avicii and reintroduces country to the pop potential of wooden instruments and organic soul. Since their 2018 self-released EP, BEXAR has accumulated nearly 40 million streams to date and has been named to Sounds Like Nashville’s 2021 Artists To Watch list. For more information, visit

The Tennessee Star Exclusively Premieres First Listen

Australian singer/songwriter Jasmin Bade releases her playful new single “X’s & Y’s” and lyric video, which premiered on American Songwriter, today. “X’s & Y’s” provides a positive outlook on embracing the single life.

The Tennessee Star premiered a first listen to the “fun, relatable” track, while American Songwriter premiered the lyric video for the song, which they praised as a “fun, bubbly vibe and lyrics that are almost Shane McAnally-esque.”

“I would come out of these relationships, and so would my friends, and we would look back a while later and think, ‘why did I even date this guy in the first place?’ I think everyone has an ex or someone in their life that in hindsight, seems like a huge mistake. And there are so many sad songs about being single, when in reality, more and more people are choosing to stay single for longer and longer every year. So, I wrote ‘X’s and Y’s’ because we’ve all been through it, and now all there’s left to do is laugh about it,” shared Bade.

An advocate for mental health, Bade released her debut single, “I’m Fine,” in 2019. The single reached radio play in over 50 countries and landed on key Spotify playlists such as New Music Nashville.
