Adrenaline Nation Has Recorded a Live Concert Album and TV Special for Broadcast on ANTV, for Release via Internet Download, and as a CD and DVD Box Set
NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 11, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Adrenaline Nation Entertainment, Inc. (Other OTC:ADNN.PK - News), which produces Adrenaline Nation TV, the leading channel for cutting edge independent music TV, innovative short films, motor sports, and adrenaline sports for the highly coveted 18-49 demographic, announced today that it has signed Billy Burnette as the first artist on is newly formed record label, Adrenaline Nation Records.
ANTV has already recorded a live Billy Burnette concert that it will release as a TV Special for Broadcast on Adrenaline Nation's Channel in June. Adrenaline Nation will also make it available via Internet download, and as a CD and DVD box set.
For the concert and album Billy selected a smoking backing band comprised of some of Nashville's finest musicians: guitarist Kenny Vaughn, drummer George Ricelli, and bassist David Roe for the TV concert and box set. The album will be available through Internet download and traditional retail as a box set on compact discs and DVD.
``The album is exactly what I do live,'' says Burnette, ``and it was a fun concert to play and record to make!''
Burnette, who put the Billy in the term Rockabilly, comes by his musical and songwriting roots naturally; his father, Dorsey Burnette, and uncle, Johnny Burnette, were both rockabilly legends (of ``Rock and Roll Trio'' fame). Burnette is probably best known for his association with Fleetwood Mac. He recorded four albums with the band, including Greatest Hits, Behind the Mask, The Chain and Time, and spent eight years on the road with them from 1988 to 1996. Billy Burnette's success as a songwriter and guitarist have proven him worthy of bearing the family name.
Billy's career has skyrocketed and his schedule has been packed full. He is dividing his time between his solo career and a live concert with Mick Fleetwood and Rick Vito, known as the men from Fleetwood Mac. He also recently toured Australia with Bob Dylan and is recording a new album with John Fogerty. Burnette's songwriting accolades include penning tunes for Jerry Lee Lewis, Fleetwood Mac, Ringo Starr, Loretta Lynn, Roy Orbison, Ray Charles, Tammy Wynette, Christine McVie, Faith Hill, Bonnie Raitt, Rod Stewart, and Ray Charles, just to name a few.
``We have always loved working with Billy we are proud that he has selected Adrenaline Nation to produce this exciting concert as a TV special and box set,'' said Keith Dressel, CEO of Adrenaline Nation Entertainment, Inc.
