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!

Doo Wop Legend - Sonny Turner -of - The PLATTERS - does exclusive MusicCharts Magazine Celebrity Interview - AUDIOMusic Charts Magazine® is proud to bring to you this interview with the legendary singer Sonny Turner. 

 

“Most of the world at some point or another has heard Sonny Turner sing on the radio.  When Sonny tells you he is Still Singin’ & Swingin’, he means it.  I believe Sonny Turner has more electricity flowing through him than Niagara Falls can produce.  This man is a full on steamship full of love, fun & a joy for singing.  We are proud to know this music legend Sonny Turner and call him a friend.”  ~ Music Charts Magazine®

 

Sonny Turner was born September 24, 1939 in Fairmont, West Virginia.  He is the singer best known for replacing Tony Williams as lead singer of The Platters.

 

 

The Platters (Sonny Turner) The Platters were one of the most successful vocal groups of the early rock and roll era.  The group had 40 charting singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart between 1955 and 1967, including four no. 1 hits.

In late 1959, Sonny Turner replaced Tony Williams as the lead singer of the original Platters. Chosen out of 100 singers who auditioned, Sonny at the young age of 19, toured the world with “The Platters” bringing their music to people of all nations.

[embeddoc url=”http://www.musicchartsmagazine.com/wp-content/uploads/Sonny-Turner.docx” viewer=”microsoft”]

Sonny brought The Platters back to the pop charts in the 1960’s with such hits as “I Love You 1000 Times”, “With This Ring” and “Washed Ashore”; as well as re-recording major Platters hits like “Only You”, “The Great Pretender” and “The Magic Touch.” You can hear Sonny’s voice in various movies such as “The Nutty Professor II” starring Eddie Murphy, “Hearts in Atlantis” starring Anthony Hopkins, and “Prince of the City” starring Robert DeNiro.

There is only one surviving member of The Platters still alive today that can be heard on the hundreds of recordings and hit records that made The Platters one of the most successful vocal groups of all time, and that is Sonny Turner. Sonny remained with The Platters from late 1959 until 1970 when he left to pursue a solo career.

In 2005, Mr. Turner received The Lifetime Excellence in Entertainment presented to him by consumer’s entertainment exchange and Doo Wop Hall of Fame.

In 2009 at Wildwood New Jersey, Sonny Turner was inducted to the Pacific Avenue of the Stars and in 2008 received The Gateway Classic Lifetime Achievement Award. He received the Black Music Award in 2007. Also Sonny has been inducted into the Beach Music Hall of Fame and Vocal Group Hall of Fame. He is recognized by the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame in his home town Cleveland, Ohio. Sonny was instrumental in getting the truth in music laws passed in the state of Nevada and North Dakota.

In 2013, Sonny’s home state, The State of West Virginia and Senator A James Manchin, honored Sonny with a plaque, and enducted him into the Hall of Fame.

Today Sonny continues to perform all over the world…

Billy Yates - These Old Walls - Music Charts Magazine Exclusive Interview - June 2015

Billy Wayne Yates

Billy Yates’ hobbies include art (pencil, watercolor, pen and ink portraits), collecting vintage guitars, and working with wood & gardening.

Billy has written and/or sang national commercials for Chevy Trucks, Ford Trucks, Kellogg’s, Slick 50, Heinz 57, Seven Eleven & Pepsi Cola.

 

“Die Hard Country music fans sometime ask where the country is in the country music now a days.  If you’re a hardcore country music fan – Billy Yates has you covered.” ~ Music Charts Magazine®

 

Billy is an American country music artist. He was born March 13, 1963 in Doniphan, Missouri. Billy has released eight studio albums and has charted four singles on the Billboard country charts, including the number 36 “Flowers” in 1997. Yates also co-wrote George Jones’ singles “I Don’t Need Your Rockin’ Chair” and “Choices”.

 

Country artist Billy Yates rolled the dice in 2001 when he walked away from Columbia Records Nashville to form his own company, M.O.D. (My Own Damn) Record Label. At the time it was unheard of in Music City for an artist to make such a move. Yates’ decision to go independent was brazen considering the fact the singer/songwriter had yet to build much of a fan base while signed to a major label. During a meeting with (then) Columbia Nashville label chief Allen Butler, Yates voiced his desire to make an old-school country album free from the restrictions of a major corporation. Once it was clear that Yates wasn’t leaving to join a competitor’s roster, Butler released the singer from his contract. The very next day, Yates began work on what would become his first indie release, the critically acclaimed If I Could Go Back (2001).

 

Born into a musical family, Yates got his start singing alongside his father  and mother (Sunday mornings before church) on a local radio program. The future country star grew up on a farm, where the family “lived off the land” and raised its own “beef, pork and poultry.” A steady diet of hardcore country music — artists like Jim Reeves, Ernest Tubb, Buck Owens, and Merle Haggard — helped form the musical foundation on which Yates would later build his career. At one point too shy to perform in public, Yates eventually summoned the courage to approach the owner of the Lake Wappapello Opry in Wappapello, MO. An impromptu performance of Ricky Skaggs’ “Cryin’ My Heart Out Over You” won the young performer a spot on the weekly show. After three years (during which time he began making regular trips to Nashville), Yates landed a theater gig in West Plains, MO.

 

After a brief stint in college, Yates attended barber school. Once he received his barber’s license, the singer returned home, where for five years he cut hair in the day, played music on the weekends, and worked at a local radio station in the evenings. In 1987 Yates made the move to Nashville and later signed a publishing deal with Hori Pro Entertainment. The wordsmith’s first cuts as a songwriter came when legendary country artist George Jones recorded two Yates compositions for his 1992 album Walls Can Fall, including “I Don’t Need Your Rockin’ Chair,” the 1993 Country Music Association’s Vocal Event of the Year. Jones would later take the Yates-penned “Choices” into the Top 30 on the country charts. The song earned Yates and co-writer Mike Curtis a Grammy nomination. More cuts came for Yates while he pursued his own record deal. Almo Sounds released the singer’s self-titled debut in 1997. The album’s first single, the riveting “Flowers,” cemented Yates’ reputation as a traditionalist. Sadly, Almo Sounds folded before the singer could establish himself in the country music community. Yates would eventually sign with Columbia Records Nashville. After a few false starts, and after years on the major-label treadmill, Yates made the decision to leave Columbia and form his own record label. The singer/songwriter produced nine critically lauded studio albums and one hits package (Favorites) between 2001-2013, including masterstroke collections Harmony Man (2005),That’s Why I Run (2008), along with his current 2015 release, These Old Walls. While success as a performer has all but eluded him in the United States, Yates has built a large and loyal following in Europe, where he enjoys hit singles and sold-out tours. Yates’ songs have been recorded by various artists, including Gary Allan, Tracy Lawrence, George Strait, Sara Evans, and Kenny Chesney. ~ Todd Sterling, Rovi
