Kristian Bush, Robert Ellis Lead 30A Songwriters Festival Lineup

Here’s a sobering thought: winter actually just started, and it will be dragging on until next March. Happy holidays, right?

But for those close to the Gulf of Mexico — or anyone eager to escape the freeze — winter will be made a little more tolerable with the 30A Songwriters Festival in Florida’s South Walton County. Scheduled for January 15th, 16th and 17th, the festival will feature the talents of Jackson Browne, Grace Potter, Robert Ellis, JD Souther, Shovels & Rope, Leigh Nash and Kristian Bush, among many others. Additionally, top shelf pro songwriters Matraca Berg, Gretchen Peters and Suzy Bogguss will be featured as Wine, Women & Song. 

Taking place along a scenic strip of the Emerald Coast in an assortment of venues, the 30A Songwriters Festival will boast over 200 performances from country, Americana, rock and more. Among them are Tonic’s Emerson Hart, Hayes Carll, Jim Lauderdale, Parker Millsap and Shawn Mullins.

Tickets for the weekend are $230 and available — along with the full lineup — here.

30A is the first of many country and country-adjacent music festivals to visit Florida. In April, the Tortuga Music Festival will set up in Fort Lauderdale with headliners Tim McGraw, Dierks Bentley and Blake Shelton. More songwriter-oriented fare will be featured at the Key West Songwriters Festival in May, and the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam will visit Panama City Beach in September as summer is drawing to a close.

The-Dream Surprise-Releases Sam Cooke Covers Album

Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter Terius “The-Dream” Nash took to Instagram Tuesday to announce the release of IAMSAM, a Sam Cooke covers album. The eight-track album was secretly recorded in 2010 while Nash was working on Beyoncé’s 4; but Nash’s heartwarming renditions of hits like “Cupid” and “A Change Is Gonna Come” ring truer to Cooke’s original 1960s productions than The-Dream’s work on “Single Ladies.” The album is available to stream on Soundcloud below to coincide with the 23rd anniversary of Nash’s mother’s death.

“My Mother loved a lot of artists growing up,” said The-Dream. “But the one we shared the most interest in together was Sam Cooke, so tonight, I give him back to her.”

The album is a welcome release after the numerous delays of his upcoming full-length album, Crown Jewel.

Oklahoma Wesleyan President Tells Students This is a University Not a Daycare Interesting Is Who Really Wants it to be a ‘Daycare’

Everett Piper, the UM presidents and Steve Sarkisian living breathing examples it’s time to hold to the same scrutiny both older and younger generations; while the younger generation has spent at minimum the last decade and more under the microscope, older adults have enjoyed a free pass socially having their bad, deplorable, head-scratchingly bizarre behaviors classified under odd news, justifiable responses to brazen young whippersnappers sans respect, manners or decency, road rage and standard criminal acts. It’s time to put the accusations of colleges becoming daycares, the infantilization, wussification of America squarely, equally where it belongs, on both sides; more and more stacking up against the older generations too.

Henry Rollins: 'Bored Rich Guy' Donald Trump Doesn't Want Presidency

Henry Rollins reiterated his support for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and called Donald Trump a “bored rich guy just being crass” in a wide-ranging interview with The Daily Beast.

Though on-hand to discuss He Never Died — a new horror-comedy in which Rollins plays an immortal cannibal who’s reunited with his estranged daughter — the political punk vet offered his thoughts on the 2016 election, Sanders’ electability and Trump’s appeal.

“I’m not a Trump fan at all, but he will say what’s on his mind,” Rollins said. “Like, ‘No more Muslims!’ You just said that. And of course in this country, a lot of people agree. Trump, one day he held up his cell phone and said, ‘Here’s Lindsey Graham’s number!’ I could not not laugh … He would be a disastrous president, but at the same time, I don’t think he wants to be president. I think he’s a bored rich guy just being crass.”

Rollins noted that Republicans wouldn’t have stood for Trump’s “racist and xenophobic” posturing during the Reagan era, and blamed cynicism towards Washington D.C. on the left and right for allowing a such a non-mainstream figure to emerge. “[Trump] bespeaks of an America that’s sick of war, sick of a crap economy, sick of the richest economy in the world with poverty, and nobody on either side of the aisle seems to want to fix it — otherwise we would have.”

While Rollins is throwing his support behind Sanders, he copped to some political cynicism of his own, saying, “he’ll never get elected” and “his concepts are way too radical for America.

“I like him, because I think he’s a straight shooter,” Rollins added. “I love his progressive ideas about health care, election campaign reform and foreign policy. I’ve always liked him because he’s honest to a fault. He’s a true statesman.”

Rollins did suggest Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton had a good chance of winning the election, but said, “I think [she] will be astonishingly mediocre. I think she’s a brilliant woman, she’s just kind of status quo and we won’t get anywhere. That sucks.”
