 “Steve Gulley has been a big part of Rural Rhythm’s success over the past years contributing his talents on many important album projects for the label.  It a been an absolute joy and privilege to be working side by side with Steve over the years to create a string of very successful album projects that I know music fans have enjoyed all over the world.  We are very excited to be a part of Steve’s music family now and in the future and look forward to all the creative music this highly talented singer, songwriter and producer will grace us with over the years”, commented Sam Passamano, II – President / CEO of Rural Rhythm Records

“ I am so proud to have been a part of the Rural Rhythm family for sometime now so the signing of the long term recording and production agreement was an easy decision for me.

GOD DIDN’T CHOOSE SIDES: Civil War True Stories about Real People

cw_2012_01-300wRural Rhythm Records is proud to present a special event album GOD DIDN’T CHOOSE SIDES: Civil War True Stories about Real People.  The album release date is February 12, 2013 on Abraham Lincoln’s birthday.

There have been hundreds of books, movies and songs created about the battles, presidents, generals & heroes as told in our history books about the Civil War. However, rarely do we hear the stories on a personal level of the unsung heroes who gave their lives or had their lives totally turned upside down during the War Between the States, which has had such an important impact on our American culture and historical foundation.  Such people like Carrie McGavock, “Tod” Carter, John P. Parker, Jennie Wade, Amos Humiston, Nancy Hart, John Burns, Andrew Jackson Andrews and more.

GOD DIDN’T CHOOSE SIDES is the first release from a new series of albums that focus on the common men and women who were thrown together into the realities and horrors of war and displayed amazing acts of kindness, selflessness, faith, love and brotherhood to their fellow Americans.

Project creator Sam Passamano, II explains; Even as a young child I have always been drawn to the events and people during the Civil War, probably because of the importance these years had on our American history and culture.  Being a second generation record executive and the president of Rural Rhythm Records I have had a dream for a long time to do a different type of Civil War album project.  There are many songs available about the popular military commanders, battles and the politics, but I wanted to focus on real stories about the common soldiers, citizens, slaves and immigrants whose lives, and the lives of those around them, were changed forever because of the Civil War…these true stories and people should not be forgotten or lost through the years”.

This new music series combines today’s top artists with new original songs written by some of today’s top songwriters, bringing to life real stories about important people, places and events during the Civil War.  Produced by Steve Gulley, GOD DIDN’T CHOOSE SIDES contains songs written by top Country, Bluegrass & Roots music songwriters; Paula Breedlove, Mark Brinkman, Brad Davis, Ray Edwards, Mike Evans, Terry Foust, Steve Gulley and Tim Stafford with performances by #1 hit artists including Marty Raybon, Russell Moore, Ronnie Bowman, Lonesome River Band, Dale Ann Bradley, Steve Gulley, Carrie Hassler, Bradley Walker, Tim Stafford, and more.  In addition, a who’s who list of award winning musicians were chosen to accompany these top vocalists including; Ron Stewart, Adam Steffey, Justin Moses, Tim Stafford, Alan Bibey and Mark Fain.

“God Didn’t Choose Sides has been a labor of love having taken over two years to create songs that would be worthy of the project. The songs not only had to be historically accurate, but would have to bring the soul, heart and emotion of these incredible people and times to life through music. All of the songwriters cared deeply about the songs and I can tell you we laughed, cried, felt humbled and had many bouts with chill bumps creating them. When you add many of the best vocalists on the planet and an incredible cast of musicians, the result is a magical, emotional and extremely powerful!” – Mark “Brink” Brinkman

Accompanying the 13 song album is an extensive 16 page booklet filled with historical notes, photographs and lyrics on the songs.  The historical content supervision and photographs for the album project was provided by the Carol Campbell and Michelle Ganz at Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum of Lincoln Memorial University, Harrogate, TN and the historical booklet notes were provided by Jamie Lynn Brinkman.

“I’m Almost Home” was written by Steve Gulley and Tim Stafford and performed by Steve Gulley.  The song has been sent to radio stations and is available now on AirPlay Direct.  The song is about Theodrick “Tod” Carter who grew up in the quiet village of Franklin, Tennessee.  In the Spring of 1861, Tod left a promising law career to follow his older brother into the Confederate Army.  In 1864, Tod found himself only a few miles from home.  Energized by the thought of seeing his family, Carter volunteered to lead the 20th Tennessee Infantry in a charge toward the Union lines entrenched just south of Franklin, shouting “follow me boys, I’m almost home!”  Tod was mortally wounded in the battle yards from his doorstep.  His father found him, and after three years away from home, he died in his front parlor surrounded by his family.

“This project has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my musical career. It really serves as a group of portraits based on real-life events that help to define a unique, ironic, divisive time in American history. What I love about the music and group of songs is the fact that they are documented, real stories about real people, their struggles, faith and triumphs. Collectively, they form a snapshot of true Americana that allows you to not only hear, but see and feel every emotion in every song. I’m so proud to have helped create this great historical work of music.” – Steve Gulley, Album Producer/Featured Performer

This story and eleven other true stories about real people during the Civil War is what comprise GOD DIDN’T CHOOSE SIDES.  Rural Rhythm has set up a dedicated page for GOD DIDN’T CHOOSE SIDES which includes interviews about the album and additional content relating to the history behind the songs, songwriters, performing artists and musicians.

CHRISTMAS: THE MOUNTAIN WAY TV Program Taping in Pineville, KY June 19

Rural Rhythm Records is proud to announce “Christmas: The Mountain Way” –  a live performance musical show that showcases Christmas and its traditions in the Appalachian Mountains.  The program, which is being filmed for broadcast on national cable network BlueHighways TV, will be shot at the historic Bell Theater in Pineville, KY, a community nestled in the Cumberland Mountains of Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia on June 19, 2012 before a live audience.

The show is the brainchild of Rural Rhythm Records owner Sam Passamano, Jr., longtime music business veteran Tony Spinosa and artist/producer Steve Gulley.  “Christmas: The Mountain Way” will bring together some of the finest performers in Bluegrass, Country and Roots music for a night of traditional Christmas music and stories.

The Bell Theater will be turned into a Christmas wonderland for filming on June 19.  The show will be hosted by Mike Scott (Mike Scott’s Nashville Band, Ronnie Reno Tradition, Jim & Jesse, Bill Monroe) and feature performances by: Steve Gulley; 2011 IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year) Dale Ann Bradley; Grammy winning artist Marty Raybon, bluegrass vocalist and guitarist Audie Blaylock; Harlan, KY based national touring band and emerging artist Cumberland River; Bell County, Kentucky’s Common Strings; and students from the Cumberland River Academy.

“Christmas is a very special time in our hearts and souls.  It connects us with family, friends and traditions passed down through the generations.  Over the years working with many artists with ties to the mountain community I have heard a strong recurring message about The Mountain Way.  We have asked some artist friends to help us put together a TV special filled with all the traditions, memories and cherished music that represents the charm, beauty and grace of “Christmas: The Mountain Way”, commented Passamano.

Artist and producer Steve Gulley added: “Growing up in the East Tennessee mountains near the Cumberland Gap National Historic Park, I learned early on the respect and reverence the people of the mountains hold for the Christmas holiday.  I’m proud to say that tradition still holds true today in the Cumberland Mountains that I love so dear.  Technology, money, commercialism and the ‘flavor of the month’ mentality that has evolved over the years for so many is replaced with old fashioned values, tradition, heritage and thankful praise.  I believe this videotaping will let the rest of the world get a glimpse of true Americana and allow the spirit of the season to shine through in the brightest of ways.  I’m proud to be a part of this production and share Christmas the best way I know…..Christmas: The Mountain Way.”

 “Christmas: The Mountain Way” will air on BlueHighways TV during the 2012 Christmas season, with multiple airings in November and December.
