The Morning Hangover: Woman Crush Wednesday
The Academy of Country Music welcomed Warner Music Nashville singer/songwriter Avery Anna to the Red Barrel Lounge stage at the Academy’s new headquarters in Nashville’s Wedgewood Houston neighborhood on Tuesday. Avery played songs off her debut EP Mood Swings, which came out in October of 2022, as well as her cover of A Great Big World’s “Say Something” which helped Avery gain fame on social media and opened the door to her music career.
The Academy of Country Music welcomed Black River songwriter/artist MaRynn Taylor to the Red Barrel Lounge stage at the Academy’s new headquarters in Nashville’s Wedgewood Houston neighborhood on Thursday. Taylor played a handful of original songs, including a soon-to-be-released single.
Two entertainment icons Dolly Parton and Olivia Newton-John come together for the first time to reimagine Dolly’s timeless hit “Jolene." The original version of the song was ranked No. 63 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of "the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time" in 2021. This new version is the last song and music video Olivia recorded before her passing in 2022 and is included on her upcoming album Just the Two of Us: The Duets Collection. Video edited by Andrew Seger, produced by Green Hill, both the song and video are out today. Stream/download "Jolene" here.
Dolly and Olivia became friends after Olivia won 1974’s Country Music Association Female Vocalist of the Year award. To this day, Olivia is the only non-American born artist to win the award. As a nod to their friendship, Olivia recorded an acclaimed version of Parton’s “Jolene” for her 1976 seventh studio album Come On Over which received critical praise from fans and industry alike.
