Ashley Gearing made history when she was just twelve years old, as she became the youngest artist to enter Billboard's Hot Country Singles Chart, breaking the record held by Brenda Lee. Ashley's version of 'Can You Hear Me When I Talk To You' gave her national exposure by displaying a talent well beyond her years. Now as part of Curb Records' growing roster, Kelly Lynn had a chance to visit with Ashley to talk about her new music. Check it out here.
The Cleverlys are a family bluegrass group that hails from their farm in Arkansas, where they raised crops as well as tobacco. These days they are taking their routine on the road, putting a lot of comedy in their show and covering hits from Black Eyes Peas, Katy Perry, and Beyonce...but with a bluegrass twist. Kelly Lynn caught up with them at a recent show at Nashville's Station Inn. Click here to see what they're all about.
When our nation's military serve on active duty, oftentimes their other dreams and ambitions get put on hold while they give their all to our country. 'Operation: Sound Off!' was created to provide music recording and performing opportunities to our active duty military and veterans alike. OSO was formed by Robert Reynolds and Scotty Huff...two longtime Nashville musicians...to help our heroes live out their dreams, telling their stories through music. For the complete story, click here.
Kelly Lynn gets set to talk with Scotty Huff and Robert Reynolds about their
new endeavor called Operation: Sound Off, which allows active duty military
and veterans access to the music industry if their dreams are put on hold
temporarily while they serve their country.

IMR Featured Event
One of the missions of the Country Music Association is to Keep The Music Playing in Metro Nashville Public Schools. They believe in this mission so much that they donate half of the proceeds from the ever-popular CMA Music Festival to this exciting program. Luke Bryan recently hosted an All-Stars concert at Nashville's Schermerhorn Symphony Center for a few of Nashville's All-Stars to show off what they have been able to accomplish thanks to the CMA. Check it out here.
