July 17 - Songwriters Hall of Fame

Due for release from the Rock Legends import-label is the CD "Las Vegas' Voice - Volume 1 - Rock Legends" containing the February 3, 1974 Midnight Show performance. 
Note: This concert was previously released by the Straight Arrow import label as "With A Humble Heart". 

From the press-release:
Coming soon from the Rock Legends label is the first volume of "Las Vegas' Voice", featuring the complete February 3, 1974 Midnight show. It's not often recordings from Elvis' 10th concert season in Las Vegas were released in such good quality. This show is taken from an unreleased original booth recording and way above average from the standard audience recording. The sound quality is excellent and reveal altogether that Elvis was happy to be back in Vegas, especially with his new contract for appearing only two weeks instead of the usual four weeks up to the August 1973 season. Besides the only released soundboard from the January / February Las Vegas season this is certainly one of the best sounding show ever put out from this engagement. Watch out for the second volume with a complete unreleased show from the very same season!

Suspicious Hall Of Fame

The Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame will have four new members later this year. Rosanne Cash, Mark James, Even Stevens and Craig Wiseman will be inducted during the organization’s annual ceremony on October 11, 2015 James, Stevens and Wiseman celebrated the news with friends and family Thursday morning at a private gathering on Music Row. 

Pop songs don’t get much bigger than the ones James has in his catalog. In addition to Elvis Presley’s “Suspicious Minds” and Willie Nelson’s “Always On My Mind,” the Texas-bred songsmith wrote “Hooked On a Feeling,” which was heard by millions in last year’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie. 

The four songwriters will be inducted at the Hall of Fame’s annual gala, taking place Sunday, October 11 at the Music City Center in Nashville.
