GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING COUNTRY GROUP LITTLE BIG TOWN TO PERFORM ON THE “BOSTON POPS FIREWORKS SPECTACULAR,”

TO BE BROADCAST LIVE FOR TWO HOURS,

MONDAY, JULY 4, ON CBS

Country Superstars Join Previously Announced Performers

Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas

Grammy Award-winning country group Little Big Town will perform on the BOSTON POPS FIREWORKS SPECTACULAR, a two-hour entertainment special to be broadcast live from the Charles River Esplanade in Boston, Monday, July 4 (9:00-11:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT), on the CBS Television Network.

Little Big Town joins previously announced artists Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas, who will perform some of their biggest hits, accompanied by the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra under the direction of conductor Keith Lockhart.

The BOSTON POPS FIREWORKS SPECTACULAR, now in its 43rd year, is the orchestra’s annual free outdoor Fourth of July concert. David Mugar, who will also serve as executive producer, founded the event in 1974.

Little Big Town – consisting of Karen Fairchild, Phillip Sweet, Kimberly Schlapman and Jimi Westbrook – first entered the music scene more than 18 years ago with hits “Boondocks,” “Bring It on Home,” “Good as Gone” and the Grammy-nominated single “Little White Church.” With albums Tornado and Painkiller, they have seen massive success with #1 singles “Pontoon,” “Tornado” and “Day Drinking” and, most recently, the best-selling country single of 2015, “Girl Crush.” In October 2014, the group fulfilled a career milestone and lifelong dream when Reba McIntire asked them to become the newest members of the Grand Ole Opry. Little Big Town has earned over 35 award show nominations and in the past five years has taken home nearly 20 awards, including multiple Grammy, CMA and ACM Awards and an Emmy Award. This past November, they received honors from the CMA for Vocal Group of the Year and Single of the Year for “Girl Crush,” and the song was also honored as CMA’s Song of the Year. At the 2016 Grammy Awards, Little Big Town won “Best Country Group/Duo Performance,” and “Girl Crush” received the honor for “Best Country Song.” Most recently, Little Big Town received honors from the Academy of Country Music for Vocal Group of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year with Miranda Lambert, and was recognized with the Crystal Milestone Award. At the Billboard Awards, Little Big Town and “Girl Crush” were nominated for Top Country Song as well as Chart Achievement Award, and the group was honored as the 2016 Music Business Association Artist of the Year. Currently, Little Big Town is on the road with Luke Bryan for the Kill the Lights Tour. Their new album, Wanderlust, produced by Pharrell Williams, was released June 10.

The BOSTON POPS FIREWORKS SPECTACULAR live broadcast will be produced by White Cherry Entertainment, and the live event by Boston 4 Productions. Glenn Weiss, Ricky Kirshner and R.A. Clark will serve as executive producers for the national telecast. The executive producers for Boston 4 Productions are David G. Mugar, Pamela Picard and Rich MacDonald. Michael Mathis of IMG Media and Pamela Picard will produce the local telecast seen on WBZ-TV Boston 8:00- 9:00 PM, live ET. Glenn Weiss will direct the network broadcast, and Robin Abrams will direct the local broadcast.

RATING: To Be Announced

EMMY AWARD NOMINEE JOHN STAMOS JOINS THE CAST OF “SCREAM QUEENS” ON FOX

June 19, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Series Hails From Creators, Executive Producers and Directors Ryan Murphy,

Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan

Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin,

Keke Palmer, Billie Lourd, Glen Powell and Niecy Nash Reprise Season One Roles

Second Season of Series to Premiere Tuesday, September 20, on FOX

John Stamos (“Grandfathered,” “Fuller House”) has been cast in a series regular role in the upcoming second season of SCREAM QUEENS, the comedy-horror series from award-winning executive producers Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan.

 

Premiering Tuesday, Sept. 20 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), on FOX, Season Two of SCREAM QUEENS graduates from the college campus and into an all-new location, as a terrifyingly funny mystery will begin once again. Set in a hospital, where some of the most fascinating and bizarre medical cases are under observation, Stamos will play DR. BROCK HOLT, the hospital’s brilliant, but secretive, head surgeon. Stamos previously collaborated with Murphy in guest-starring roles on the comedies “Glee” and “The New Normal.”

 

As previously announced, Golden Globe Award nominee Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Glen Powell and Niecy Nash are set to reprise their Season One characters. Additional casting to be announced.

 

Emmy Award-nominated actor and producer John Stamos continues to captivate audiences with an array of multi-faceted performances across television, film and theater. With a career spanning 30 years, Stamos has become one of the most revered television stars of his generation. In 2016, Stamos won the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Actor in a New TV Series, for his role on FOX’s “Grandfathered,” and was awarded TV Land’s Timeless Icon Award, presented to him by longtime friend and mentor Garry Marshall. Earlier this year, “Fuller House,” a multi-camera comedy spin-off of iconic comedy “Full House,” premiered, with Stamos serving as a producer and guest star. The series was recently renewed for a second season. Stamos’ additional television credits include “General Hospital,” “Necessary Roughness,” “Galavant,” “Entourage,” “Two and A Half Men” and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” as well as the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning drama “ER.” As a producer, Stamos is in development with Twentieth Century Fox and Academy Award-winning producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan, on a musical feature set to the songs of the Beach Boys.

 

Stamos also has established a strong stage presence, beginning with his Broadway debut in “How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying” as “J. Pierrepont Finch.” Other Broadway credits include Gore Vidal’s Tony Award-nominated political play, “The Best Man,” with James Earl Jones; Roundabout Theatre Company’s “Bye Bye Birdie”; and the Tony Award-winning musicals “Nine” and “Cabaret.” Additional theater credits include “Hairspray” and “The Little Mermaid” at the Hollywood Bowl. A gifted drummer, singer and musician, Stamos occasionally tours with the legendary band the Beach Boys, of which he’s been a part for 30 years. As an advocate for Project Cuddle, Stamos serves as the non-profit’s national spokesperson and Chairman of the advisory board, and has been a supporter of the charity for nearly 10 years.

 

SCREAM QUEENS was this past season’s No. 1 new comedy among Adults 18-34 and the No. 1 new series in social media. Across platforms, SCREAM QUEENS averages a +186% gain versus its Live + Same Day delivery (8.0 vs. 2.8 million) – the biggest multi-platform percentage gain versus Live + Same Day ever for a FOX program over the comparable period.

 

SCREAM QUEENS is from Ryan Murphy Television and Brad Falchuk Teley-Vision in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The series is created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, who also serve as writers and directors on the series. SCREAM QUEENS is executive-produced by Murphy, Falchuk, Brennan and Alexis Martin Woodall (“American Horror Story: Hotel”). “Like” SCREAM QUEENS on Facebook at facebook.com/ScreamQueensFOX.

SALT-N-PEPA TO BE HONORED AT VH1 HIP HOP HONORS: ALL HAIL THE QUEENS

EVENT TO HONOR THE TRAILBLAZING LADIES OF HIP HOP

MONDAY, JULY 11 AT 9PM ET LIVE FROM NEW YORK

NEW YORK, NY, June 15, 2016 – Iconic musicians Salt-n-Pepa will be honored at VH1 HIP HOP HONORS: ALL HAIL THE QUEENS, VH1 announced today. They join previously announced honorees Queen Latifah and Missy Elliott.

After a six-year hiatus, the revered VH1 HIP HOP HONORS is back celebrating the best and brightest in hip hop with a twist. This year’s live event will pay homage to the female pioneers, trailblazers and trend-setters who led a movement and infiltrated the ranks of the male-dominated genre to make their voices heard and still do today. The final female artist being honored will be announced tomorrow.

Salt-n-Pepa helped pave the way for women in hip hop and has found an enviable longevity. They are the first female rap group to attain platinum status and have gone on to sell more than 12 million albums. Whether it was winning a Grammy in 1995 or Deadpool listening to “Push It” in 2016, Salt-n-Pepa’s influence has never waned.

“VH1 HIP HOP HONORS: ALL HAIL THE QUEENS” will air Monday, July 11th at 9PM ET LIVE from New York

Since its inception in 2004, “VH1 HIP HOP HONORS” has recognized the luminaries who broke new ground and propelled the genre into the cultural phenomenon it has become. From Hip Hop’s pioneers like Public Enemy and Tupac Shakur to Def Jam Records and Russell Simmons, VH1 has honored Hip Hop from its origins through the numerous phases of its musical evolution.

Current sponsors of the “VH1 HIP HOP HONORS: ALL HAIL THE QUEENS” special event include MetroPCS® and Taco Bell®.

ABOUT SALT-N-PEPA
With truck gold ropes around their necks and a fire in their hearts to entertain, inspire, and slay the competition— three feminine figures emerged from the shadows and kicked in the door of the male dominated hip-hop industry.

The legend of Salt-n-Pepa was born.

Hip-Hop aficionados have long branded the 80’s and early 90’s the ‘Golden-Era’ of hip-hop. And if that is the case, Salt-n-Pepa is the sparkling shiny finish on that block of gold. Long before the days of high profile social media platforms, Salt-n-Pepa commanded the attention of millions of followers by way of their air-tight rhyme flow, mass pop appeal, fashion, fun and unapologetic femininity.

They are the first female rap group to attain platinum status. They have since gone on to sell more than 12 million albums. Their brand of girl power and strong feminine artistry changed the hip-hop landscape and blazed a trail for numerous female artists and groups in pop, R&B, and hip-hop genres.

Included in their catalog of hits from five studio albums are such classics as ‘Push It’, ‘Shoop’, ‘Whatta Man’, ‘Let’s Talk About Sex’, ‘Expression’, ‘Independent’, and the Grammy Award winning hit ‘None of Your Business’. These songs have appeared on numerous film soundtracks and television commercials around the globe thrusting them far beyond the scope of just hip-hop. They have toured internationally on the strength of these records.

More specifically, their smash hit ‘Push It’ has a lasting appeal that made it an anthem for high school proms in the 80’s as well as the theme for a Superbowl commercial in 2015.

‘Shoop’, one of their trademark singles that was released in the Fall of 1993, re-entered various charts in February of 2016 on the strength of its placement in Marvel’s smash hit ‘Deadpool’ film.

Among their many achievements are a Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group (1995), MTV Video Music Award for Best Electronic Dance Music Video (1994), MTV Video Music Award for Best Choreography (1994), MTV Video Music Award for Best R&B Video (1994) and in 2010 BET honored us with the ‘I Am Hip-Hop Icon Award’.

In recent years Salt-n-Pepa has reunited for several successful tours in the United States and abroad. In 2016, the 30th Anniversary of the influential group, the ladies are headlining the ‘I Love the 90’s Tour’ and prepping to release a new cookbook entitled ‘Cook it Real Good’. In between shows, they are burning up the talk show circuit with recent appearances on The View, The Wendy Williams Show, The Meredith Vieira Show, The Breakfast Club, and The Chew.

With the success of N.W.A biopic ‘Straight Out of Compton’, a great interest has resurfaced from Hollywood executives in telling the epic story of Salt-n-Pepa. While they consider their options in that arena they are developing the ‘Cooking With Salt-n-Pepa’ concept for the Cooking Channel.

And what is sure to be sweet music to the ears of old and new fans alike, they are finally back in the studio working on new music.
In the meantime, there is one grand honor that has eluded Salt-n-Pepa but it may not be long before that too is scratched from their bucket list. The trio of divas has yet to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of fame.
