C'mon - Amber Hayes

Amber Hayes released her debut EP, Câ??mon, on Aug. 31, 2010 and staging a unique CD release party and live radio broadcast Sept. 2, 2010 at Nashvilleâ??s Station Inn.

Hayes first began work on Câ??mon during her standout run as Kathy Twitty in the Conway Twitty musical, â??Conway Twitty: The Man, The Music, The Legend, The Musical.â? After the traveling production ended in 2009, Hayes finished her album in Nashville, co-writing every track and co-producing the project herself. Influenced by a host of legendary female singers including Barbara Mandrell, Dolly Parton, Jeannie Seely and Reba McEntire, Câ??mon integrates a healthy dose of fiddle, mandolin and steel guitar with a modern production and songwriting emphasis.

â??Growing up in rural Oklahoma, I was exposed to a lot of traditional Country music, and I guess I gravitated more toward the female singers like Dolly and Barbara, and then later, Reba,â? says Hayes. â??Iâ??ve got great respect for the history of Country music, and itâ??s always been a dream of mine to play the Opry. Iâ??ve had the incredible privilege to get to know and perform alongside some fabulous ladies like Jean Shepard, Helen Cornelius and Jeannie Seely, which blows my mind every time I think about it. My music definitely has a contemporary style to it, and I think it connects with todayâ??s Country music fans, but my roots go back a long way.â?

Hayes celebrated the release of Câ??mon with a CD release party and live broadcast performance on WSMâ??s acclaimed â??Station Inn Sessionsâ? radio show on Thursday, Sept. 2. Listeners can tune in to an interview with Hayes at 5 p.m. CST and hear her performance at 6 p.m. CST on WSM 650AM or online at www.WSMOnline.com. The CD release party and performance are both free and open for the public to attend. The Station Inn, located at 402 12th Ave. South, Nashville, TN, 37203, opens at 3 p.m. each Thursday to broadcast WSMâ??s â??Station Inn Sessionsâ? radio show.

â??WSM is thrilled to have Amber Hayes celebrate her new album and perform some of her new songs on our live â??Station Inn Sessionsâ?? program,â? says WSM Program Director Joe Limardi. â??The first time we heard Amber on the WSM acoustic stage earlier this year at CMA Music Fest, we knew that she had a real appreciation for the roots of Country music, but with just the right touch of modern Country. I think our â??Station Inn Sessionsâ?? is the perfect platform to launch Amberâ??s new record, and weâ??re excited to interview this talented young lady and broadcast her show live for her fans, for the Nashville industry and for the whole world to hear.â?
