Chesney had this to say, "As we're getting back out there, I wanted people to remember how much fun, how many good times and memories are made at these shows.
"I mean, when we're firing, there's no feeling like it on that stage, but even more exciting for me are the faces, the places and the moments out in the parking lot and the stands.
"To me, it's a straight line from there to the state of mind that is all that boat footage, being out on the water and having the best day of your life… And I wanted to capture that as we're starting another trip around, well, the country." Check it outhere.

"Out to Sea" is the debut Instrumental Progressive Rock Album by Fernando Perdomo, guitarist and bassist of the Dave Kerzner Band. The album draws inspiration from classic 70s Art Rock albums by the likes of Steve Hackett, Peter Banks, Steve Howe, and Jan Akkerman. Acclaimed artist Paul Whitehead painted the cover image. Other covers by Whitehead include "Trespass," "Nursery Cryme," and "Foxtrot" by Genesis. While all instruments on the record were played Fernando, save one drum track, he has put together a stellar group to perform the music of "Out To Sea" live.
"Out To Sea" was a pre-release on Cruise To The Edge 2018, a progressive rock concert cruise headlined by the band Yes, where Fernando played with the Dave Kerzner Band alongside Kerzner, Derek Cintron, Roger Houdaille, vocalists Durga and Lorelei McBroom (Pink Floyd), and special guests Randy McStine (The Fringe), John Wesley (Porcupine Tree), Steve Rothery (Marillion), Steve Hackett (Genesis), Harry Waters (Roger Waters), Gabriel Agudo (Bad Dreams) as well as Geoff Downes, Jon Davison, and Billy Sherwood of Yes. Fernando also played guitar in a special tribute to John Wetton with Kerzner and Thijs Van Leer of Focus. On previous performances on Cruise To The Edge, Fernando accompanied Sonja Kristina (Curved Air) and an all-star line up of progressive rock musicians in Dave Kerzner Band's tribute to the late Greg Lake of Emerson, Lake and Palmer.

Guadalcanal Diary exploded on the scene in 1985 when the previous year's Walking in the Shadow of the Big Man was issued via Elektra Records and spawned the hit "Watusi Rodeo." Over the next four years, Murray Attaway (vocals, guitar), Jeff Walls (guitar, vocals), Rhett Crowe (bass, vocals), and John Poe (drums, vocals) released three more critically acclaimed albums before calling it a day. The band reconvened for live shows in the late '90s; tape was rolling during a two-night stand at Smith's Olde Bar in Atlanta, Ga., January 1998. The following year, At Your Birthday Party was self-released as a thank-you to "Guadal fans everywhere."
This 16-track performance finally will receive worldwide distribution on July 13, 2018 via Omnivore Recordings, with updated artwork and new liner notes from Attaway. It encompasses everything their fans love about the band - favorites from all four Elektra releases, as well as one song that only appears on this collection, plus the hooks and passion that filled venues.

Mazur had the following to say about the brand new track, "When I initially heard Greyson's vocals I knew that I had to take the production in an organic direction.
"I started the track in Copenhagen and then I finished it in Los Angeles which makes this track really special to me. Lighthouse is my interpretation of a modern electronic R&B sound anno 2018. I hope you guys dig it!" Listen to ithere.
The story behind my latest single, "If God Doesn't Want It" is quite interesting, actually. This is one of my oldest songs. I first wrote the song when I was 11 years old. It sounds completely different than it does now. The lyrics were the same, but the chords were pretty different. When the lyrics were written, I wrote them based on what I've learned and experienced so far. It just made sense to me that trusting in God and knowing that all things work out for the best would make my life more peaceful. I honestly don't even remember sitting down and working on it. It kind of just came.
When I was 16 I revisited the song, solidifying the lyrics that you hear on the verses and also making the chords more similar to the chords in the current version. To make it the song it is now, I actually asked my husband to get involved. I was getting ready to leave on tour in Florida and I asked him if he could give the song a hip-hop feel while I was away.
When I came back and heard what he accomplished, I was absolutely blown away. And to be honest, that was one of his first producing experiences so it didn't even make sense for him to, without any production background, make a radio worthy song. It was seriously a God thing.
After that, I asked him to rap on it because I knew it would really add to the song. I added some of my musical touches with the production, we worked together to finalize really important details, and tada! There's "If God Doesn't Want It"! I would've never believed it would sound like this when I first wrote it, but I'm beyond ecstatic with how everything turned out.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the albumright here!
