The Hotdisc chart is compiled from DJs and industry professionals’ ratings of songs currently being promoted on the Rush Released CD. They are not airplay charts, as airplay charts cannot work in Europe because there are no terrestrial country stations. The hundreds of country programmes on air which we service are likely to play a particular song only twice at most in a three month period, therefore rendering airplay charts insignificant in Europe. It works well in America where there are plenty of non-stop country stations but it does not work here. Any Airplay Chart you may see claiming to provide this service is bogus and Hotdisc does not condone these charts at all. They are misleading at best for the reasons stated.

The Hotdisc charts are put together weekly using ratings supplied by DJs who give scores to every song on the last three months’ editions of Rush Released. The scores are averaged out per week to give an accurate guide to the songs which are being championed by the industry. The aim is to showcase the songs which the industry professionals are flagging up as quality songs. This is a very useful exercise as it is free of politics, hype and rigging and done solely on merit!

HotDisc Top 40 at Music Charts Magazine

Music Charts Magazine® CD Reviews - Jon Wolfe - Natural Man - by Donna ReaI think the tourism folks in Texas use the slogan, “it’s not just country music, it’s music country”. And, they are right. There is so much really good country music coming out of Texas these days, and Jon Wolfe is just one more example of that. For anyone who loves country music, and has not had the pleasure of listening to Jon Wolfe, the best place to start is to point you to his web site (www.jonwolfecountry.com). The bio on that site will tell you all you need to know about Jon, and there is even a music section where you can listen to some of his songs.

The best introduction to Jon Wolfe is the basic yet not so simple fact that he’s a Country singer and songwriter who’s Country to the core. With an array of influences including George Strait, Clint Black, Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks and Merle Haggard, the Oklahoma native turned Texan has been burning up the Texas Charts where he garnered six consecutive Top Ten singles (“Let A Country Boy Love You,” “That Girl In Texas,” “I Don’t Dance,” “It All Happened In A Honky Tonk,” “The Only Time You Call” and “What Are You Doin’ Right Now”). Wolfe has opened for some of the platform’s biggest stars and has played more than 400 shows in the past four years. A storyteller at heart, Wolfe’s traditional Country sound has led him from his small hometown of Miami, Oklahoma to the dancehalls and honky-tonks of Texas, and now to Music Row.

I am excited to tell you about Jon’s new album, called Natural Man. The album can be pre-ordered on his web site now, with an official release date of March 31, 2015. It gives us 13 great country songs! The album was produced by Jon, Lex Lipsitz and Billy Decker, and the music is a well-laid out combination of today’s country and real traditional country.

The 13 songs you will get on the album are, If You’re Lonely Too, That’s What I’m Talkin’ About, Smile on Mine, It Just Feels Right, Outrun Her Memory, Don’t It Feel Good, She Beats All I’ve Ever Seen, Singin’ Thing, Natural Man, What Are You Doin’ Right Now, I’m Doin’ Alright, Married to Nothin’ and When I Get to Heaven.  Every song on this CD became my favorite. I believe everyone who likes country music will feel the same way. 

This is an album full of good country music. You get everything from ‘upbeat tempo’ and memorable lyrics, to great instrumentation and really good story-telling. You get ballads, love songs, and the ones that will make you want to get up and dance. Jon Wolfe pulls all that together with his strong vocals, and very likeable country style.

Like any album that makes me lean back in my chair and say, “this is country music,” I have nothing but great things to say about this album. The last song, “When I Get to Heaven,” is outstanding! With lyrics like ‘when I get to heaven, will I ever hear a country song again’…there’s a beautiful story in this one. It’s about how much he loves the sound of a steel guitar, and fiddles – and it talks about all the awesome things that we’ll find in heaven – and his hope that there will also be the country music he love.

For those of you who really enjoy social media, you can follow Jon on Twitter @jonwolfe. In addition to reading Country’s Chatter (www.countryschatter.com), we hope you are following us on Twitter, too. You will find us @countryschatter.

Her heart was in Country music, She became an 80’s Pop music teen idol known across the world, she found her way back to her Country music roots Her life, Her Story

(An audio Exclusive)

Music Charts Magazine® Proudly Presents

“Tiffany”

 

Tiffany Renee Darwish (born October 2, 1971) is an American singer, songwriter, actress and former teen icon. She is most notable for her 1987 cover of “I Think We’re Alone Now”, originally recorded by Tommy James and the Shondells in 1967. Released as the second single from her eponymous album, Tiffany, the song quickly became a teen anthem. Thanks to an original mall tour, “The Beautiful You: Celebrating The Good Life Shopping Mall Tour ’87”, Tiffany found commercial success; both the single and the album peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and Billboard 200 charts, respectively. The singles, “Could’ve Been” and “I Saw Him Standing There”, a cover version of The Beatles’ “I Saw Her Standing There”, followed soon after, with the former also claiming the number one position on the Billboard Hot 100.


Music Charts Magazine® Proudly Presents Tiffany - A Celebrity Audio InterviewTIFFANY is back! …to her roots. The dynamic voice of the 80s has returned to where it all started for her, country music and the Nashville music scene. Now a critically praised songwriter, Tiffany is set to capture your hearts again with her new album “Rose Tattoo”.

She recently starred in 2 Highly Rated SyFy Channel TV Movies (Mega Piranha & Mega Python Vs. Gatoroid), stars in a national commercial with Meatloaf, & appeared on the CBS TV shows “The Young & the Restless” & “How I Met Your Mother.”

Once upon a time in the 1980s, a little girl came to Nashville from her hometown of Norwalk, Calif., with dreams of becoming a country singer. She was raised on a steady diet of Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn and Patsy Cline, and by age 9 was performing their songs with her own band. The following year she was discovered by legendary country songwriters Hoyt and Mae Axton, and earned an invitation to perform in Music City on The Ralph Emery Show. Things didn’t work out as she’d hoped back then, but three years ago that same little girl—now all grown up, with a family of her own—returned to Nashville for good, determined to make her long-deferred dream come true.

A heck of a lot happened in between. Instead of finding a home in the country world, the teenage Tiffany instead became a pop superstar. She sold more than 15 million albums worldwide and scored hits like “I Think We’re Alone Now,” “Could’ve Been” and “All This Time.” But she did so as her manager dictated the songs that she sang—none of which she had a hand in writing. “I’ve always had to fight to be me,” she says now. “I spent most of my career in the early days feeling like people thought I was manufactured, like I was a gimmick—but my voice was real.” Now Tiffany’s voice—literally and figuratively—can be heard at its finest on Rose Tattoo, her eighth studio album and the first to fully explore her country music roots. “It’s come full circle,” she says.

Tiffany took the long way around that circle, to be sure. Exploring opportunities as they arose: there were two critically acclaimed singer-songwriter albums, 2000’s The Color of Silence and 2007’s Just Me; a successful stint on the TV reality competition Hit Me Baby One More Time; and an acting career in projects like the recent tongue-in-cheek monster flick Mega Python Vs. Gatoroid (co-starring fellow ‘80s teen icon Debbie Gibson). Perhaps most significant was her foray into dance music, which yielded three hits on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Songs chart. But as pressure grew to build on her rapidly growing reputation as a dance diva, Tiffany remained determined to follow her heart to Nashville. “It was fun,” she says, “but that’s not my life.”

So three years ago, Tiffany, Elijah and her husband Benn George put down stakes in the Nashville area. “When IMusic Charts Magazine® Proudly Presents Pop music superstar teen idol Tiffany came to town I had black hair, so nobody recognized me,” says the famously red-tressed singer. “I went to songwriting showcases and just chilled and watched people. I took the temperature of the town.” She began writing with local songwriters and performing at low-key writers’-night events, gradually convincing local skeptics of her commitment to the genre. As she wrote the songs that would become Rose Tattoo, she reconnected with the reasons she loved country music in the first place. “Country artists are never bigger than their fans,” she explains. “My niche is writing about real life—experiences, heartbreak, seeing your child grow up, all of those real things that me and my fans are going through now.”

Finally, she felt confident enough to start work on a new album of her own. She discovered producer Chris Roberts through her friend and fellow singer-songwriter Lindsay Lawler (who duets on the album’s raucous “Crazy Girls”). The two set up shop at East Nashville’s Yackland Studio armed with some of the city’s finest musicians and a clear creative vision. “Chris and I talked about what I heard on every song, what the direction was,” she says. “It’s like Little Big Town meets Stevie Ray Vaughn with a little bit of Fleetwood Mac.”

Music Charts Magazine® Proudly Presents - Tiffany - Rose Tattoo - New Country Music Album from Pop superstar TiffanyMix all that up and you have Rose Tattoo—a warm, buoyant album that finds Tiffany sounding entirely herself and entirely at home. This is music that is close to the heart, right down to the album title—a tribute to both the Rose Tattoo nightclub where she learned her craft onstage as a youngster, and to the actual rose tattoo she got as a rebellious teen. “He’s All Man” bursts with the joy of love, while “He Won’t Miss Me” addresses the pain of divorce; the aptly titled “Feel the Music” is a tribute to the power of song, and Tiffany shows a sultry side on come-hither cuts like “Love All Over You” and “Love You Good.” The buoyant “Just That Girl” is Tiffany’s clearest statement of principle yet, showcasing both her vulnerability and her strength—and her charmingly self-deprecating sense of humor. “I’m the girl that walks the red carpet with toilet paper on her shoe,” she says with a chuckle. “I look at other artists and everything’s so glossy and fabulous. I don’t know that life. I’m still trying to find my footing—in love, in business, in everything. I’ve learned to laugh about it and to be comfortable with myself.”

Throughout Rose Tattoo, Tiffany introduces herself to a new audience while showing longtime fans a side of her they may have never seen—and she’s just getting started. “I’m not going backwards,” she says. “I feel like I’ve really come into my own. This is my sound. This feels good, it feels like my home now. I wanted it to be home for so long, and now I’m not going anywhere.”

JACK BLANCHARD'S COLUMN at Music Charts Magazine®

 

THE BULLY.

When I was in third grade there was a tough kid named Red Webster
who was in the fourth grade and loved to bully the younger kids,
especially me.

He had bright red hair, his pie face was covered with red freckles,
and he had a tough Irish look, at least to us smaller kids.
This went on for several years,
until I was in the seventh or eighth grade.

There was a huge empty field of grass and high weeds near our house
where we played baseball in the Spring and Summer and football in the Fall.
One spring day the guys were gathering for the first game of the season,
and Red Webster showed up yelling provocative insults at me.
It was a mistake.
I was big and strong by then.

When I was up at bat he yelled from right field,
“Hey, glasses, try and hit one this far. Haha.”
I turned my batting stance more to the right
and hit the ball way over his head and beyond.
By the time he found it in the weeds I had a home run.
Then I stomped out there and beat the crap out of him.

After that he wanted to be my side-kick,
so we were friends for about a year,
but occasionally I picked on him just for old times’ sake.

I saw him about ten years later, and felt nothing…
no friendship, no hard feelings.
He was just a jerk who started as a bully,
and worked his way up to nothing.

Red sneaked around with my at-the-time girlfriend.
I didn’t much care.
They deserved each other.

I would kinda like to see him again
just to slap the old bastard around one more time.
