By Creative Media Times

Darkroom – Interscope

Just days after winning top honors at the American Music Awards, Billie Eilish is set to be awarded with Billboard’s 2019 ‘Woman of the Year.’

The 17 year old singer and songwriter is set to be awarded at Billboard’s Women in Music event on Dec. 12, making her the youngest recipient of the title.

“Billie has disrupted the entertainment industry through her music and social media platforms, leaving an indelible impact on the global cultural zeitgeist,” says Hannah Karp, Billboard’s Editorial Director. “Her ability to speak to the Gen-Z population, making teens and young adults feel accepted in today’s society has quickly allowed Eilish to grow to the top of the charts, breaking the mold for this generation with her electric hair-color and sharp attitude.”

Previous honorees include Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, Madonna, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift, who will receive Billboard’s inaugural Woman of the Decade honor.

Earlier this year, Eilish’s debut album, “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” debuted at No. 1 Billboard’s album chart. One of the singles in the album, “Bad Guy” reached number one on Billboard Hot 100, ending the record-breaking 19-week run of “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X featuring Billy Ray Cyrus.

Eilish is set to embark on a massive world tour in 2020.

Lizzo, Billie Eilish, Lil Nas X Lead Grammy Nominations

By Creative Media Times

After some of the nominees were leaked this week, the official nominations for 62nd annual Grammy Awards is finally revealed, with Lizzo, Billie Eilish, and Lil Nas X leading the list.

It was a big day for Lizzo, who received eight noms, the most nominations than any other artists this year, including Album of the Year (“Cuz I Love You”), Best New Artist, Song, and Record of the Year for her chart-topping hit “Truth Hurts.”

The record-breaking song “Old Town Road” helped Lil Nas X in receiving six nominations, including Album and Record of the Year. The song, assisted by a remix version featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, stayed at number one for nineteen consecutive weeks, surpassing “One Sweet Day” (Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men) and Despacito (Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee ft Justin Bieber).

Zac Brown Band Announces “The Owl Tour” Spring 2020 Dates

Today, multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning, Zac Brown Band announced they are extending their highly successful summer 2019 “The Owl Tour” to include spring 2020 dates.

“The Owl Tour” celebrates and features music from the band’s newest album, The Owl, as well as hits from the band’s entire discography and a diverse range of cover songs that have become a signature part of any Zac Brown Band show. Featuring the dynamic melodies they have long been known for and new, genre-bending sounds, the album and tour draw inspiration from the mythology and mystery surrounding the Great Horned Owl that can see perfectly in the night, serving as a guide when we need sight even in the darkest of moments.

The spring 2020 leg of “The Owl Tour” follows this past summer’s epic, 32-stop tour that brought the band to some of the nation’s most storied music venues including Boston’s Fenway Park, where Zac Brown Band played two consecutive sold-out shows, extending their record to eleven consecutive sold-out shows – the most of any other act at the famed venue. The spring 2020 leg of ‘The Owl Tour’ will feature support acts from Amos Lee and Jason ‘Poo Bear’ Boyd throughout the run.

“The energy throughout ‘The Owl Tour’ has been electric at every stop,” said Zac Brown. “It’s been an unforgettable year and we’ve had so much fun sharing the new music with our fans. We can’t wait to get back on the road next spring.”

The Black Crowes Present Shake Your Money Maker 2020 World Tour

The Black Crowes’ Chris and Rich Robinson will herald the thirty-year anniversary of their landmark quintuple platinum debut album Shake Your Money Maker with a world tour beginning June 17 in Austin, Texas. Tickets and VIP packages are on sale now. To celebrate the announce, the band will play two intimate shows, first at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City this evening, followed by the Troubadour in Los Angeles on November 14. More info about tickets will be shared on @theblackcrowes Instagram page.

The Black Crowes, which Melody Maker proclaimed as “the most Rock n’ Roll Rock n’ Roll band in the world” will be playing their debut, described by Rolling Stone as, “a guitar-party cracker that marries Southern R&B crunch and Anglo cock-strutting attitude” in its entirety plus all the hits from the band’s illustrious catalogue. The ever-volatile Robinson brothers have not played a show since 2013 when they vowed never to play or speak together again. Thankfully for fans, times seems to have healed these wounds.

Chris Robinson says of reuniting, “I’m thrilled & blessed to be playing with my brother celebrating the music we’ve made & bringing our lives together full circle. Long live Rock n’ Roll & The Black Crowes!”

Rich Robinson adds, “First and foremost, I’m really happy to have my brother back in my life. To be able to play music again together and celebrate the first record we made as kids, is a gift. To have these songs stand up after 30 years is something I could’ve never fathomed.”

In 1990, when journalists were lamenting the death of rock, as cheesy pop and hair metal dominated the charts, Atlanta’s Black Crowes gave the genre a swift and much needed kick in the ass with Shake Your Money Maker. Fueled by singles “Jealous Again”, “Twice As Hard”, “She Talks To Angels”, and the rollicking cover of Otis Redding’s “Hard To Handle” the band immediately took the rock world by storm, topping Rolling Stone‘s “Best New American Band Readers Poll” in late 1990.

The Black Crowes went on to release eight studio and four live albums, selling in the tens of millions along the way; they sold out shows around the world; had legendary guitarist Jimmy Page join as a member; got kicked off a tour with ZZ Top for insulting the sponsor; got screwed by bad record deals; got married and divorced, fought amongst themselves and the rest of the world; in other words they’ve done everything a legendary rock group should do. 2020’s reunion and tour produced by Live Nation is sure to further cement the band’s legacy as one of the best and most loved rock bands of all time.
