(Nashville, TN - June 11, 2008) NSA/Midas recording artist Adam Gregory can thank the success of his debut single "Crazy Days" for a whirlwind schedule of appearances and performances that turned into one "Crazy Week" during this year's CMA Music Festival.

Gregory broke from his current four-month radio tour to perform Thursday and Friday at the sweltering Greased Lightning Daytime Stages, but also made a surprise appearance at the CMA Global Artist Party, worked the runways at the Country Weekly Fashion Show, and hosted the first annual Adam Gregory Jam at Fuel Bar. He swung the bats for charity at the Celebrity Softball Challenge and somehow still made plenty of time to sign autographs for his fans.Gregory showed up Monday night at the Global Artist Party at The Stage on Broadway first as a spectator, but was quickly coerced into performing a spontaneous set that thrilled the international crowd. The following night he hosted and performed at his first annual Adam Gregory Jam at Fuel Bar and Nightclub.

Gregory then switched gears and tried his hand at modeling, donning the latest fashions at the Wildhorse Saloon later that night to benefit Musicians on Call.Thursday, Gregory's time was devoted purely to the fans, signing autographs (GAC, Border's booths) and performing at the Greased Lightning Daytime Stages for thousands of festival goers. His set included the hit that's shooting up the country charts, "Crazy Days," currently at #46 on the R&R charts and climbing seven spots this week to #36 on the Music Row charts.

Singer Misses Parade Ride, Sings At Ernest Tubb's, Celebrates Joe Stampley's 65th Birthday On Riverfront Stage Nashville, TN (June 10, 2008)

When Texas recording artist Jeff Griffith arrived in Nashville for his first CMA Music Festival, he never imagined how jam-packed the week would be - or how much fun he would have. "It was amazing," Griffith says. "I loved every minute of it - from the booths to performing - it was incredible."
Griffith certainly made the most out of his Music Festival debut, but admits to a moment of near-panic when he realized he'd missed his ride in the opening-day festivities parade. "I was there," says the sociable Texan. "But I guess I was talkin' to someone and didn't hear 'em call my name. The driver just fell in line - without me!"
On the Riverfront Stage, Jeff, along with compadre Joe Stampley, held sway over the crowd - and celebrated Joe's 65th birthday with the Moe & Joe classic, "Good Ol' Boys," and the title track from Griffith's debut CD, IF IT AIN'T ONE THING IT'S ANOTHER.

Jeff drew a large crowd to the Ernest Tubb Record Shop for a live interview with and acoustic performance for WSM Radio's Keith Bilbrey. Jeff sang his current hit, "Holed Up In Some Honky Tonk," and shared a brand new composition, "That's Why I Had To Say Goodbye," with fans.

In between his Festival activities, Jeff found his way to Hendersonville and the home of legendary songwriter Hank Cochran. "He was so gracious," Griffith says of Cochran. "He's already pitched me some hits for my next album."
