Joel Crouse’s single – “If You Want Some”

First Music Video from Young Singer Who is Opening 16 Stadium Shows for Taylor Swift This Summer


NASHVILLE – June 19, 2013 – Show Dog Universal Music recording artist Joel Crouse will debut his first music video, “If You Want Some,” on tomorrow, Thursday, June 20.  The video, directed by Chris Hicky, features Crouse and his band setting up to perform and party with friends outside a convenience market after their tour van breaks down.   Check out the worldwide video premiere teaser here.  Pick up a copy of Crouse’s new single “If You Want Some” on iTunes here.
“I can’t really describe how exciting this is for me,” said Crouse, who recently turned 21 on June 14.   “First, I have a record deal and I’m working on my album, which is the fulfillment of a dream I’ve had since I was a kid.  Then, I’m touring stadiums with Taylor Swift, which is awesome.  And now, I’ve filmed a music video and is playing it first!  It just doesn’t get much better than that.”
“If You Want Some” was written by Luke Laird, Jamie Houston and Crouse and will appear on his forthcoming debut album.  PEOPLE Country calls Crouse’s debut a “beer-drinking anthem” and Taste of Country proclaims the record is “just different enough from everything else on the radio hoping to engage younger audiences, but not so different that the traditionalists will be turned off.”  Billboard adds, “‘If You Want Some’ has an inviting groove that perfectly frames Crouse’s soulful country vocals, and his vibrant personality on the mic will make country fans want to hear more.”
Crouse, who recently made his Grand Ole Opry debut, will continue performing with Taylor Swift on her “Red Tour” through the end of July.  Each week, Crouse hosts #DressingRoomSessions on his website, where he posts a new video offering fans a glimpse of his pre-show warm-up on the tour.  To view the #DressingRoomSessions or for tour information, visit   Follow Crouse on Facebook at, on Twitter@JoelCrouse, and on Instagram at joelcrousemusic

Gordon Stoker & Elvis, May 28th 1966 at the ‘How Great Thou Art’ session

Gordon Stoker lived to be 88 years old.  He died at his home in Brentwood, TN.

Stoker was a native of Gleason, Tennessee, where he grew up in a musical family.

1st there was the “Foggy River Boys”.  When Gordon Stoker replaced Bob Money as the pianist a new group was formed named the “Melodizing Matthews”.  The group was based in Springfield, Missouri. 

The Melodizing Matthews soon changed their name to The Jordanaires, after Jordan Creek in Missouri—not after the Jordan River, as many have thought.

Gordon Stroker was a tenor singer for the Jordanaires from 1951 to 2013.
