PostSubject: Anna Wilson's "Countrypolitan Duets"   Tue Jan 25, 2011 10:05 am

It looks like Anna has started promoting her CD, which is due out a week from today. I'm wondering if Matt will join her for any appearances. This one looks like it was just Anna. Even the bass player in Anna's band who has been such a good source of Anna information does not appear to have been there.

I don't know when this happened, but the release date of Anna's CD has been moved back to April 5. Anna announced it yesterday on twitter. If what Matt said to Jim C. doesn't change about YDKM being re-released in March/April, it may come out ahead of the album.

Meanwhile, there is a new and very positive review of Anna's CD at http://www.musicnewsnashville.com/archives/reviews/2011/annawilson.htm

Here's the quote about YDKM:

Quote :

The lead-off track, Eddy Arnold’s “You Don’t Know Me” is another solid showcase for Wilson (along with Matt Giraud). You can actually see the smoke rising up at the piano bar on this track.

And the final quote about the CD:

Quote :

The year is young, but go ahead and reserve a spot for Wilson on the “Best Albums of 2011” list……and that’s a guarantee!

You may have seen Anna's tweet about three of the songs from her CD being up on youtube, including YDKM.

Quote :

@ogdenfoamusic thanks for the mention! Check out youtube.com/musicworldent for a 1st listen to 3 tracks w/ @ImMattGiraud @KeithUrban & more!

I also checked out the Music World website, and you can hear all of the songs streaming there. It's a cool album. Nevertheless, I think "You Don't Know Me" really stands out vocally. I'm sure hoping there will be some promotion that involves Matt. The album comes out on April 5. Here's the link:

Thank you for posting that, csprof!

I, for one, am itching to have something from Matt to request on the radio. It can't come sooner. I hope something's being planned seriously.

I know what you mean, mattyfan, but for now it seems that YDKM promotion will happen sooner than any original music, so I am hoping it will give him a chance to get out there and be in the public eye.

Matt tweeted he's going to a jazz awards show in San Diego. There is something called the Oasis Contemporary Jazz Awards on March 10-13. So far it does not show Anna as a performer, but maybe they have something planned and not yet announced. Here's the link:

Yay! I hope they get to perform! IS YDKM out on radio? Can we request it? It'll be fun to have somethign to request again.

I hope Matt does gigs wherever he goes. Nashville, San Diego, etc. It'll get his die-hard fans something to tide them over till he finally gets his album out and tours.

Haha mattyfan, it looks like this thread is a conversation between the two of us.

I am watching Mediabase periodically, and so far YDKM has not been released to radio. In a recent interview, Matt said they were planning a re-release in March or April to help promote the CD. I was wondering if it was the acoustic version they recorded in November. I'm very curious what plans they have for that acoustic version. I think it was Anna who said in November that they planned to release the song to radio.

I think Anna will give us the word if it is released. Matt will probably tell us a week or so after it is out in a tweet with three other topics. Smile

LOL, csprof! You got Matt all figured out! I am excited for YDKM to be out on radio, and to see what they'll do with the acoustic version! Anything with Matt on the radio, we're ready to request! Very Happy

Ok, back to waiting.... Wink

Oh well. It looks like San Diego's jazz awards are a bust. Here is a tweet from Anna:

@annawilson
I was so looking forward to performing at theOasis Jazz Awards in San Diego this weekend but they just got cancelled. Bummer:( 31 minutes ago via Facebook

Mattyfan,

The entire awards show is cancelled. They could not sell enough tickets. There is an explanation at the website I posted earlier in this thread. I'm sure they would have loved to have Anna and Matt perform. They really do sound great.

Oh my! What a loss for jazz fans. Crying or Very sad I really think America needs someone fresh and current like Jamie Cullum to spark some love for jazz among younger people. I really wouldn't mind if Matt took on the challenge!

Anna's website just got a facelift, in preparation for the release of her CD. Check out http://www.annawilson.com.

It sadly has less Matt on it, but I think that is probably appropriate. Meanwhile, she has announced some tour dates with Matt Dusk, mostly in Canada, and there is one scheduled in early May in Michigan. I have hopes Matt G. will make the drive to Royal Oak Michigan to appear with her.

Quote :
'' Yet they're all outsung by American Idol's Matt Giraud, who thrillingly channels Ray Charles on ''You Don't Know Me.''



Matt, so many people know how incredibly talented you are! I just know when you release your CD so many people will fall in love with your music. Everyone I play your music to always comments on how amazing your voice is!

Here's another review of Anna's CD from Jazziz magazine, with a very positive mention of YDKM:

Quote :

Both at the Opry and on the album itself, Wilson put her showstopper up front, taking Cindy Walker and Eddy Arnold's classic and oft-covered "You Don't Know Me" to dynamic new heights with the help of soulful 2009 American Idol contestant Matt Giraud."

Here's a link to the full article: http://annawilson.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/jazziz.pdf

Anna's CD comes out in just 3 days, and I am looking forward to further buzz on it. I have yet to read anything but glowing comments about Matt's vocals on this track. Loved, loved, loved the mention in the EW review. And I love it that it is his vocals that are getting all the attention!

Anna is on tour in Canada right now with Matt Dusk, but she has a few days off coming up and I'm wondering if/how she'll be promoting the CD.

Anna's CD is available today! Also, Matt and Anna recorded an "unplugged" version of YDKM that is also available: http://itun.es/i6h8s7

And here is something fun to watch! YDKM Unplugged is climbing the ITUNES jazz chart. It is currently at #85.


EDIT: Here is a fun quote from a review in streetdate.radio.com:
Quote :

On Countrypolitan Duets, esteemed jazz singer Anna Wilson invites current superstars Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts, and Matt Giraud, along with legendary crooners Kenny Rodgers, Ray Price, and Connie Smith, to reveal the shared roots of both styles.

Another awesome review of Anna's CD that Anna posted:

http://new.music.yahoo.com/blogs/ourcountry/94300/jazz-gal-anna-wilson-shakes-up-country-standards-with-keith-urban-lady-antebellum-rascal-flatts-more/

The article includes an embedded Youtube video of YDKM from last year's Forest Hills concert.

Also, YDKM Unplugged has climbed up to #56 on the ITUNES jazz chart. I hope it will keep going.

I'm sure it WAS at #53, but unfortunately it is dropping. Right now it is at #74.

An hour later it is back up to #68. So maybe it will go up again today as more people hear about it.

Wow, I must say that I have listened to the unplugged version several times now and am loving it more and more each time. It is more stylized and sleepier than the previous version, but the jazzy phrasing and what Matt does with his voice give me chills at points. I hope people who love Matt will hear about this recording because it is a real showcase for his voice.

I couldn't check the chart during the afternoon, but I saw YDKM Unplugged get as high as #40. Now it is at #62. Maybe it will pick back up again tomorrow. Meanwhile, Anna's album is at #9 on the jazz chart, and I bet that will keep going up at least for a few days.
