Which Song From Garth Brooks Inspire You The Most?


Garth Brooks has made songs for not only adults, but also for kids to. In the early 1990s, country music embraced Garth Brooks and a style known as New Country that infused the genre with many of the musical sounds and performance practices of stadium rock bands.

With this rock-influenced approach to making country music, Garth Brooks garnered unprecedented success. Brooks destabilized the idea that country was distinct and different from other genres with his open acknowledgement that he was drawing from rock roots.

New Country of the 1990s was not the first time that country and rock had intersected. In the mid 1950s, Elvis Presley and other early rockabilly stars emerged directly out of the country music industry.

All of these developments reinforce the idea that borrowing across genres is a time-honored source of innovation in all of popular music. Garth Brooks in particular, his public avowal of rock as a major influence ironically helped him become the biggest selling country artist of all time and injected country music with a boost in popularity.

So which song from Garth Brooks inspired you the most? What song can you relate to? This is a survey being held by the Wrap-Up Magazine. Leave your thoughts and feelings below!

Understand Whitney Houston And Dolly Parton Hit Song "I Will Always Love You"


Most fans of Whitney Houston today never knew she was connected to country music singer Dolly Parton. Dolly Parton and Whitney Houston will undoubtedly remain connected through their smash hit song “I Will Always Love You.”

"I Will Always Love You" was the second of five consecutive #1 Country hits that Parton had after establishing herself as a solo artist. Parton later recorded a second version of this song for the 1982 film The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas, which she starred in along with Burt Reynolds. The second version not only became a #1 Country hit (like the first version), but also became a crossover hit, reaching #53 on the Hot 100.


When this song was chosen for the 1992 film The Bodyguard, it proved to be a huge benefit for both Parton and Whitney Houston. For Houston, it provided her signature song, showcasing her otherworldly talents as a singer. Her version became a worldwide success in pop music, earning huge royalties for both artists. Dolly Parton's country ballad was now familiar to audiences of pop, soul, and adult contemporary.

In 1995, Parton recorded a third version of this song with Vince Gill as a duet. This version became a Top 20 Country hit and won the 1995 Country Music Association Award and received a Grammy nomination.

Country music legend Dolly Parton said she was "shattered" when she heard Whitney Houston's version of her song, "I Will Always Love You."

Houston’s dramatic rendition of “I Will Always Love You” sold more than 4 million singles and won two Grammys. The Bodyguard soundtrack sold 17 million copies.

Dolly Parton has always praised Houston’s version of the song, noting, “I will always be grateful and in awe of the wonderful performance.” She has also expressed her gratitude to Costner for including the song in The Bodyguard.

Garth Brooks Pulls Out Of The CMA's


Garth Brooks won't compete for "Entertainer of the Year" at the Country Music Association Awards. 

Brooks, a seven-times recipient of the top country music honor, said Wednesday that "it's time for somebody else to hold that award."

He last won CMA "Entertainer of the Year" in 2019, when some in country music fandom argued passionately for Carrie Underwood or Eric Church to earn the annual trophy. 

'There's one tweet in there that really stuck in my head," Brooks said in a virtual press conference Wednesday. "It said, 'Hey, man. This guy, why doesn't he just step down (and leave) the entertainer for the next generation?' 100% agree."

Should Lil Nas X Be Enlisted As A Country Artist?


Why is Lil Nas X finding it hard to gain acceptance in the world of mainstream country mirrors? Influential black artists found it difficult to get airplay on country radio.

Lil Nas X's viral country rap hit "Old Town Road" soared to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Lil Nas X now has the ultimate revenge story as his song, "Old Town Road" which was pulled from Billboards country charts for not being country enough, is now the no.1 single in the country.

In a world where everything is racist, this goes to show how even the music industry has discrimination. Lil Nas X has introduced African Americans to a new sound of Country music which they have come to love.

Who am I to tell Billboard that "Old Town Road" is Country and deserves it's spot. Many blacks of today's generation didn't even know who Billy Ray Cirus was unless you talk about Miley Cirus.

We can now say that all cultures from hip-hop to country can now swing to a new tempo. Times are changing and I do believe that this may be the correct way to go. This vote this song even higher. Let it be known that more will come for its spot in country music billboards.

Why China Has The Fastest Growing Market For Music


China’s music market is one of the fastest growing markets in the world. If you don’t want to enter China, your music business is equal to “drop a big wallet”. The world’s most populous country, and their consumers’ pockets are bulging, and there is no reason why you should not come to China to do the music business.

China’s music media has many particularities due to historical reasons. It didn’t really form until the late 1980s. At that time,mainly music media are the newspaper, radio and television station.

In 1987, China’s first popular music magazine, “Audio & Video World”, was born, and the magazine was hailed as China’s “Rolling Stone” magazine(and later, it did,In 2006 They published a music magazine together, named “Rolling Stone China Edition”.but only one issue and forbidden by government ). Basic function as with “Rolling Stone”, as long as “Audio & Video World” magazine introduces artists, it must be famous and popular.

With the birth of “Audio & Video World” , many music magazines, such as X Music, Music Heaven, Modern Music Field,Hit Music, have been born. And also the TVs and radios were growing up before 2000, basically, all these music media were called music market orientation.

TV stations, for example, are still a better platform, but they only recommend famous artists. For new artist, It is very difficult to get the chance to get exposure.So when you promote your artists and new music, you can choose some magazines such as “X Music ” ,”Q magazine Chinese edition”, “Easy Music World”,and even some foreign music magazine will also report it such as the Pump it Up magazine. They often focus on China music market.

Jay Z Talks Tidal, Jimmy Iovine, And Rewriting The Music Rulebook

Jay Z doesn’t give many interviews. In conversation, he often pauses mid-sentence, considers, rewinds, slices and reshapes his answer, choosing a more appropriate word or analogy that draws a finer point before revealing it to the interviewer. What’s commonly assumed is a mistrust of the press may just be that unlike his work in the studio or onstage, Jay Z doesn’t ultimately control the final result of an interview, and therefore treads more carefully while giving one.

V-LO The Maestro (@VLOsWorld) - "Can't Phase Me"

V-Lo The Maestro has had a lifelong passion for music. Like so many independent rappers, his dream was to be able to see his music video on BET television, a goal that he’d held on to ever since he was a child in his rural hometown of Washington, Louisiana. With a population of roughly 943, Washington, Louisiana is a small town with one stoplight and no Walmart. Here, students are transported by yellow school buses to the nearest city for classes. Washington is the place where V-LO The Maestro, as an independent rap artist, began to think outside of the box and reach for opportunities beyond what he was limited to locally. “I always knew if I made the music and produced a quality product, I’d find a market. The Internet has made it possible to take the sound out of the country, around the world, and bring it back home.” V-LO has been able to build his music audience organically, through grassroots efforts and an active Social Media presence. He’s grown his Instagram to over 100,000+ followers and his collaboration, “Tipsy,” featuring Kevin Gates, the impassioned rapper from Baton Rouge, earned 25,000 Spotify downloads while the music video reached over 1 million views on V-LO The Maestro’s Facebook artist page. V-LO’s music has made its way into rotation by famed DJs, including DJ Flex. These milestones helped pave the way for what had been V-LO’s dream for quite some time. Directed by Majacul, footage for “Can’t Phase Me” was filmed with permission at Nissan Stadium and features a string of exotic race cars—the Ferrari F430, Rolls Royce Ghost, Corvette, and BMW i8. The video tallied 200,000 views on Youtube. On April 4th 2019, the music video for “Can’t Phase Me,” by V-LO The Maestro made its BET television debut, an achievement that is also a monumental first for the residents of Washington, Louisiana. In recent years, New Orleans had become the state’s pipeline for rap talent, introducing Cajun flavor to rap music lovers through the likes of a bevy of artists, including Master P and son Romeo, Silk the Shocker, Mystikal, Birdman, and Lil Wayne (Weezy). They are among the most influential rappers in the industry, and their signature sound has become coveted by audiences worldwide. According to Nielsen Music reports, Hip-Hop/R&B is now the most dominant genre in the United States. Music streaming has now become the preferred medium, with rap artist Drake shattering music streaming records with an astounding 8.2 billion plays. One added benefit of digital distribution is that it also opens up opportunities for focused, independent music artists. A rap artist like V-LO The Maestro from Washington, Louisiana, a rural area nowhere close to New Orleans, could create and promote music from his hometown that reaches audiences in major cities, as well as in other countries. “Not everyone is going to believe in your dreams,” says V-LO. “Some might even come out and tell you your ideas are crazy because they don’t believe what you are trying to do is even possible. But whatever your talent, do it well. Do it with passion. Own it. And be bold enough to represent. I’m from a small town, but I didn’t let that stop me. I am so grateful that BET television has given me this opportunity.”

DotCom: One of the best unknown recording/mixing engineers in Atlanta

Stephen Farrow, who goes by the musician name “DotCom,” is a GRAMMY-nominated recording and mix engineer, music industry veteran. Originally from Montgomery, Alabama, he has since become a part of the Atlanta music scene, getting his start within the hip-hop genre in the early 2000’s.

Around this time, an experience in a Birmingham, Alabama studio left him hooked and determined to pursue music for a living. From that first taste, he fell in love with the different knobs, buttons, and faders, and all of the effects that they could achieve. He began a deep-dive into music creation, learning about beats, vocals, mixing, and everything in-between. From there he went on to go to Omnitech for digital media, and in 2014 became a recording engineer for Quality Control Studios. He has since worked with artists such as Cardi BNick CannonLil YachtyMigos, and more.

As people sing the lyrics to my songs, they have so much passion because it’s not just a good hook and a fire beat. It’s their life story! I say the things that people want to express, but aren’t sure how others will view them after it’s been said. Everybody wants to be the “toughest gangsta” in a lot of Rap songs today but my music explores the importance of being human, making mistakes, and learning from them to turn mistakes into income.”   K1NG ZOE, a retired US Navy vet, has had an innate love for music since he was a child. In middle school he participated in the school’s band ensemble, furthering his passion for music. While on active duty, he served as a Hospital Corpsmen and it was during his tour in Afghanistan where he started writing about his experiences while there.

He is now slated to release a catalog of new music with up and coming artists under Black Sneaks Entertainment/Against All Odds Music Group. Currently working on his debut EP “Season of Revenge” for 2019, K1NG ZOE will also blow you away with his singles “73 featuring Ice Billion Berg” and “FRANCO L1NK.”   Speaking of “FRANCO L1NK,”he explains, “Everyone measures how successful you are by comparing it to some material worth. They’re checking for how big your crib is or the type of foreign you drive. As for myself, a Franco Link is my chaining day. No pun intended. After the countless sacrifices made to reach my pinnacle, a Franco Link speaks for it all. I want to be able to have the power to make a phone call and change someone’s life completely. And while doing it, that Franco Link will sit just right.”   K1NG ZOE is just getting started and it has been a very promising start. As with all great creators, he has embarked on fulfilling his entrepreneurial vision. Stay tuned as he declares,    “My only limit is that which I impose on myself.

The Lavish Lifestyle Of Garth Brooks


Garth Brooks, a country music singer-songwriter who was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma on February 7, 1962, is known professionally by his middle name.

In 1993, Brooks' album entitled, In Pieces, eventually sold 10 million albums, and the run continued for the remainder of the decade. By 2000, the family conflicts, in part, resulted in Brooks announcing his retirement, though he did release an album in late 2001.

What Songs Will Last A Lifetime To You?


Whether you listen to rap, dance, hip-hop, techno, country, jazz, rock-n-roll, or pop music, the Wrap-Up Magazine would like to know, what song last a lifetime to you?

Nielsen Music, the industry-standard information and sales tracking sector, released a mid-year report highlighting 2020's current most popular genre. Stats reveal hip-hop as America's favorite and most influential genre, so far.

If you’re a songwriter, I would think that longevity is something you strive for when writing a tune. You want your music to live on, especially if your career doesn’t. We love the nineties. The nineties gave us grunge and gangster rap as well as (unfortunately) a cringeworthy combination of the two.

Additionally, the 1990s gave us Nirvana, Beyonce, Oasis, Pearl Jam, Beck, The Fugees, Snoop Dogg, Green Day, and Smashing Pumpkins. The following decade is when pop truly took over, followed closely behind by rap. It’s when rock started to fade a bit despite stellar offerings from Kings of Leon and Green Day.

Lil Nas X Sued For $25 Million


The mission for the entertainment business was to stop Lil Nas X from entering into the Country music category, but this just takes the cake away from the young artist.

Lil Nas X is being sued over a song he released five months before he hit it big with "Old Town Road" and the company going after him is $25 million in damages.

The company then claims that in June of 2019, Sony acquired the rights to all of Lil Nas X's songs, including "Carry On." The Music Force claims that Sony "knew or should have known ... to make sure all elements of 'Carry On' had been cleared."

The Music Force is suing for copyright infringement and they are also asking for the court to rule that Lil Nas X's song is "a joint work" owned by The Music Force and the defendants. They are seeking $10 million in damages and then an additional $15 million in punitive damages.
