The announcement two weeks ago that The Tallest Man On Earth will release his first new album since 2012 this spring on Dead Oceans was met with open arms and eager anticipation. While the trailer is a beautiful indication of whats to come, the first single, Sagres, takes us a step further into the world of Dark Bird Is Home. Its an album that presents Kristian Mattson at his most personal and direct, deeper and darker than ever at times, yet also an album with strokes of whimsy and the scent of new beginnings. It feels fresh and well timed. Reliably, the melodies and arrangements are sturdy and classic, and the lyrics and their delivery are both comforting and alarming. You should expect the loudest and proudest songs yet from The Tallest Man On Earth on album number four, but also the softest and the lowest.

The Tallest Man On Earths Dark Bird Is Home is out May 12th on Dead Oceans and available for pre-order now. All iTunes and SC Distribution pre-orders come with an instant free download of Sagres.

For the next few years, the Dark Bird tour will come to your city or a town nearby, and for the first time The Man is bringing a band to the stage with him.

Music Health Alliance, Nashville Based Non-Profit, Announces Inaugural “First and Worst Event” Featuring Richard Leigh, Liz Rose, Phil Barton, Roxie Dean, and Wynn Varble


(PRWEB) February 23, 2015

On April 1, 2015, some of Nashvilles most recognized songwriters will come together for the inaugural “First And The Worst” charity event hosted at 3rd and Lindsley, benefitting the Music Health Alliance. The First and The Worst, which will take place at 3rd and Lindsley, will showcase hit songwriters performing the first and the worst songs they ever wrote, as well as their songs that have become top-selling records recorded by superstar artists, all for a worthy cause.

Hosted by Grammy-nominated songwriter, producer, and music critic Peter Cooper, the evening will feature Richard Leigh (Dont It Make My Brown Eyes Blue and Ill Get Over You/Crystal Gayle, The Greatest Man I Never Knew/Reba McEntire), Liz Rose (Tim McGraw, Teardrops On My Guitar, and “You Belong To Me”/Taylor Swift), Phil Barton (“A Woman Like You”/Lee Brice, She Rides Away/David Nail, Yeah Yeah Yeah/Dustin Lynch), Roxie Dean (“When I Think About Angels”/Jamie O’Neal, Why They Call It Falling/Lee Ann Womack), Wynn Varble (Waitin On A Woman/Brad Paisley, Have You Forgotten/Darryl Worley, and Im A Little More Country Than That/Easton Corbin) and others to be announced.

All event proceeds from sponsorship tables, ticket sales and the silent auction will benefit Music Health Alliance. The non-profits work assists songwriters, artists and music industry professionals in finding affordable health solutions and financial resources at every stage of their career. The mission of Music Health Alliance is to Heal the Music by providing access to healthcare through services that protect, direct & connect music professionals with medical and financial solutions. In two short years, they have saved over $ 5.5 million dollars in insurance premiums, reduction of medical bills, and prescription savings.

Tatum Hauck Allsep, MHAs Founder/Executive Director said, The First and The Worst will enable Music Health Alliance to provide life saving healthcare access to the music industry in it most vulnerable time of need. MHA is thrilled to be the beneficiary of such an incredibly clever and entertaining evening of music.

First and The Worst is the brainchild of Grammy-nominated songwriter, Sandy Knox (Does He Love You, “She Thinks His Name Was John,” and “Why Haven’t I Heard From You”/Reba McEntire and her own early gems Upchuck and Mr. Phone).

The First and The Worst is an event I have dreamed about for close to 20 yearsa night in which the audience is allowed to peek inside the brilliant minds of hit songwriters long before they had ever written a hit, explains Knox about the idea becoming a reality. And, having it benefit the Music Health Alliance makes it all about giving back to our community.

Doors to the event will open at 5:00 p.m. and the show will start at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are now available for purchase through the 3rd and Lindsley website. Tickets are $ 20 for balcony and $ 75 for reserved seating. Table sponsorships are available for $ 1,500, $ 2,000 and $ 2,500, and $ 10,000 for the title sponsorship. There are a limited number of tables available for sponsorship. Please contact Shelia Shipley Biddy at shelia(at)musichealthalliance(dot)com for more information.
