Pitch Perfect 3

Universal Pictures, Perfect World Pictures and Gold Circle Films present a PG-13, 93 minute, Music, Comedy, directed by Trish Sie, screenplay and story by Kay Cannon with a theatre release date of December 22, 2017.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (December 8, 2017) – The Christmas season brings opportunities to share joy and help those in need and 117 Entertainment Artists, Lewis Brice, Paul Bogart, Scooter Brown Band and Amanda Winter are generously participating in the Christmas 4 Kids Tour Bus Show taking place at the Walmart Supercenter (204 N Hendersonville Lane/Hendersonville TN) on Monday, December 11, 2017 from 5-9 pm CST.

All proceeds go to the nonprofit organization, Christmas 4 Kids, that will supply Christmas shopping money to more than four hundred underprivileged children at the annual event. Dozens of artist buses are decorated with Christmas themes, providing an opportunity for fans to get an inside look at the artists’ home away from home. A donation of $5 for adults and $2 for children ages 2-12 gives the ticket-holder the chance to see more than 50 tour buses and meet artists and celebrities inside every bus, take photographs and get autographs.

Lewis Brice: With a sound rooted at the intersection of country, rhythm & blues and southern rock, Lewis Brice comes at you with high-energy stories, sounds that catch the ear and beats that make you want to move. Born and raised in Sumter, South Carolina, he grew up singing in church choir and praise bands. Throughout his career he has spread his music in front of attentive audiences and continuously grown a strong fan base while playing shows with many talented artists he admires such as Lee Brice, Randy Houser, Jerrod Niemann, The Cadillac Three, Dierks Bentley and many more.

Lewis made headlines with 2010's “Ordinary Girl,” co-written with Dallas Rogers, which made a small window on the Mediabase charts and reached #67 on the iTunes Country Music chart. He appeared in CMT’s first season of "Can You Duet,” coming in 8th place out of the thousands who auditioned. Additionally, Lewis took on the lead role in the 2014 ACM Song of the Year music video for “I Drive Your Truck,” performed by his brother Lee Brice.

Paul Bogart: Though his songs are fresh and he himself is young, he is an old soul with a knack for capturing time-honored traditions and summing up classic sentiments in catchy, three-minute songs. Exuding sincerity and a rare, down-to-earth charm, Paul Bogart is, simply put, the epitome of traditional country music. After nearly a decade of writing, playing and touring, Bogart has begun pulling in big numbers in every arena, literally. Whether it’s the main stage at the AQHA World Championships with thousands in attendance or the social media scene with almost 4 million fans reached through his YouTube tribute, “Cowboy Ride,” Bogart’s songs have connected with America’s Heartland in a real, tangible way that modern country has perhaps missed. For more information on Paul Bogart visit

Scooter Brown Band: After 4 years and 3 months, 2 tours overseas with 1 tour of combat in Iraq as a United States Marine, Scott “Scooter” Brown traded his guns in for guitars and hit the road. The Scooter Brown Band was formed and began playing mainly in and around Houston, Texas. Along with their growing notoriety came their first radio single "Apology." Other regional radio releases were soon to follow and include "Whiskey Talkin", "Soldiers Christmas Eve", "Feels Like Home,", and "Summer Song". The band released several independent albums, strengthening their chops in the studio, however they truly shine in their live show. SBB has toured the country and opened for some of their biggest influences including Charlie Daniels Band, Travis Tritt and the Marshall Tucker Band, just to name a few. For the last year the band has been building a new era in their career, gearing up for the release of their newest project American Son -- defining modern southern rock. For more information, please visit

Amanda Winter: From a very early age, Amanda Winter has been wowing audiences with her small size and larger-than-life vocals. Her life growing up revolved around country music.  Amanda Winter is no stranger to the uncertainty that life can bring, growing up in the foster care system, her main focus remained on her love of music. She made her move to Nashville in August of 2013, without knowing anyone, without a job out there waiting and with nothing more than everything that fit inside of her car. In May of 2015, Amanda released her very first Nashville EP, consisting of seven original songs, two of which she co-wrote.  Her first self-penned song “Little Girl…Big Dream” became an anthem for her life. A song to tell the world that no one can define you, if you really chase after your dreams, anything is possible. Growing up herself as a foster child, she continues to be an activist for children everywhere, and hopes to be living proof that it doesn’t matter where you come from, that you can achieve it all if you work hard and dream big. Make sure to follow Amanda on

Rock Dog

Lionsgate, Mandoo Pictures, Huayi Tencent Entertainment Company, Eracme Entertainment, Dream Factory Group, Summit Entertainment and Summit Premiere present a PG, 80 minute, Animation, Comedy, Family film, directed and story by Ash Brannon with additional story material by Denise Bradley with a theater release date of February 24, 2017.


BURBANK, Calif. (Jan. 19, 2017) – Five-time GRAMMY® winning and best-selling recording artist Celine Dion will perform an all-new original song, “How Does A Moment Last Forever,” for Disney’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast.” The song will also be included on the film’s soundtrack.

Written by eight-time Oscar®-winning composer Alan Menken (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin”) and veteran lyricist and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice (“The Lion King,” “Evita”), “How Does A Moment Last Forever” is an emotional ballad about holding onto life’s precious moments. Portions of the song are performed throughout the film and interpolated into the underscore before Dion’s full-length version debuts in the film’s custom main-on-end title design.

Says Dion, “Being a part of the original ‘Beauty and the Beast’ was such a magical experience in my life, and I'm truly honored to be a part of this film again.”  

President of Music for Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Production, Mitchell Leib, approached the artist on behalf of the project with the idea of recording one of the three new songs written for the film. “Celine was the unanimous choice of the filmmakers and studio to perform this song,” says Leib, “And everyone involved with the film is thrilled she agreed to be part of this new live-action adaptation.”

Dion originally performed the duet “Beauty and the Beast” – featuring Menken’s haunting melody and two-time Oscar-winner Howard Ashman’s unforgettable lyrics – with Peabo Bryson for the animated film. The song became an instant classic and went on to receive an Academy Award®, Golden Globe® and three GRAMMY Awards.

Menken also provides the film score along with new recordings of the classic songs from the animated film written by himself and Ashman. The original motion picture soundtrack will be released by Walt Disney Records on March 10, 2017. The pre-order is available now at

About the film:

The story and characters audiences know and love come to spectacular life in the live-action adaptation of Disney’s animated classic “Beauty and the Beast,” a stunning, cinematic event celebrating one of the most beloved tales ever told. “Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a Beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart of the true Prince within. The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s father; Josh Gad as LeFou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Ewan McGregor as Lumière, the candelabra; Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Audra McDonald as Madame de Garderobe, the wardrobe; Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, the feather duster; Hattie Morahan as the enchantress; and Nathan Mack as Chip, the teacup; with Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.

Directed by Bill Condon based on the 1991 animated film “Beauty and the Beast,” the screenplay is written by Stephen Chbosky and Evan Spiliotopoulos and produced by Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman, p.g.a. and Todd Lieberman, p.g.a. with Jeffrey Silver, Thomas Schumacher and Don Hahn serving as executive producers. “Beauty and the Beast” will be released in U.S. theaters on March 17, 2017.

About Collin Raye
Collin Raye’s searing ballads and electric performances have been captivating country audiences for more than 25 years. With 16 No. 1 hits, 24 top 10s and ten Male Vocalist Of The Year nominations, Raye has clearly emerged as one of the great voices of our time. The De Queen, Arkansas native rose to fame in 1991 with the timeless number one hit, “Love, Me.” In 1994, his music video for “Little Rock,” led to over 100,000 phone calls to help lines from those seeking help with their addictions. “Not That Different,” was a song that pleaded for tolerance, and “I Think About You” (awarded as “Video Of The Year” by the Academy of Country Music in 1997) exposed exploitation of women and children. His latest album projects include His Love Remains, his first inspirational hymns album, as well as Still On The Line, a tribute album to Glen Campbell. In 2014, he released his moving autobiography, A Voice Undefeated.

About The Bellamy Brothers:
Howard and David continue to prove that the trail they’ve ridden to fame has been as unique as their music itself—music that is now celebrating 40 years of success. The road that started on the pop music charts in the ‘70’s, took a winding turn into country music in the ‘80’s, paving the way for duos to come, such as Brooks & Dunn, Montgomery Gentry, Big & Rich, and The Judds. “If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me),” originally scrawled on a dinner napkin by David, rocketed them to the top of the country charts the way “Let Your Love Flow,” had done in the pop market just a few years earlier. It proved to be the first of a string of fourteen No. 1 singles in the U.S. alone. They’re the only U.S. country music act who've toured in India, Sri Lanka, New Caledonia and Qatar. The Bellamy Brothers hold the record in both the Academy of Country Music (ACM) and the Country Music Association Awards (CMA) for the most duo nominations. Numerous Grammy nods have also been directed toward the brothers. For more information, visit

No Stressed Pets This Holiday Season

-Pet Acoustics calms anxious pets with holiday music specially composed in frequencies pets like best.

(Washington Depot, Conn.) November 17, 2016- The holidays are not just a stressful time for owners, it can be a very anxious time for pets as well: new places, new people and new sounds. Music has the power to heal, relax and comfort during times of stress, but our pets hear in different frequencies than we do. Janet Marlow, sound behaviorist and Founder and CEO of Pet Acoustics, Inc. is proud to offer a solution for stressed pets this holiday season, through Pet Acoustics Holiday Music for use with Pet Tunes pre-loaded Bluetooth® speakers.    

This collection of music provides pets and pet parents a gentle and calm atmosphere during the holiday season and is proven to alleviate anxious behaviors in dogs and cats. Original holiday orchestrations, composed by Marlow are designed with species-specific hearing sensitivities in mind. High frequencies and jarring volumes are agitating to dogs and cats for example and have therefore been eliminated from the music.

“When you play the holiday music through the Bluetooth® speakers, not only is it enjoyable for our ears, but you can immediately notice the pets connecting with the music and experiencing signs of relaxation,” said Marlow. “Separation anxiety, travel nerves, noise phobias are at a high this time of year, and I’m so thrilled to   provide a safe, natural and easy solution to help our pets manage.”  

Pet Acoustics offers two options for pet owners: the Pet Tunes mobile Bluetooth® speaker, pre-loaded with soothing music and Holiday Music CD and chip or the Ultra Calmer canine stress relief sonic collar for on the go pets.   The speaker is great for pets staying home that may experience separation anxiety or noise phobias, while the sonic collar is great to have while in the car or on board a plane.
