Brad & Carrie Win

August 27th 2016

Back in 2011 Brad Paisley & Carrie Underwood recorded their hit 'Remind Me'.  Another singer/songwriter, Amy Bowen, had written a song back in 2007 also called 'Remind Me'. She shopped the song around Nashville including at a 2008 workshop where Chris Dubois and Kelley Lovelace were advisors.  They are also co-writers on Brad's "Remind Me'.  Amy decided to take them to court saying Brad's song was similiar to hers.  Amy asked for 10 million.  A judgement has been handed down and the ruling basically says there is no copyright infringement so Brad and his co-writers are off the hook.

A Dad Requests A Song From KennyChesney For His Son

August 26th 2016

Kenny Chesney will be playing his last gig on his 'Spread The Love Tour' this weekend.  Al Briere is going to be there and he's hoping Kenny will perform a song for him.  Al lost his 19 year old son Joey in a car accident five years ago.  There were two of Kenny's songs that helped Al get through that very difficult time.  'Happy On The Hey Now' and 'Who You'd Be Today'.  Al has gone on Facebook requesting Kenny to play one of them.  No word on whether Kenny or his people have seen the post so we don't know if he'll play either song.  Guess we will know by the end of the weekend.  We'll keep you posted.
