Jerry Lee Lewis to write autobiography. Jerry Lee Lewis is going to tell his incredible story in an autobiography for HarperCollins Publishers. “I have spent my life listening to those who know so little say so much about me and my life,” said Lewis in a statement. “I am ready to say a whole lot about why I lived my life the way I did. People can read it, burn it, or never give it another thought. Either way the truth is about to be told, and I’m the only man still standing who can touch it.” Jerry Lee Lewis is a living legend and literally the last man standing from the crop that gave is Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Roy Orbison. “Mr. Lewis personifies the American story, in all its richness and contradiction,” said Cal Morgan for IT Books. “He’s a man of astonishing natural talent, profound belief, and indomitable spirit. What a thrill to have the chance to work with him on this unforgettable book.” Morgan won the rights to the book after an auction. Jerry Lee Lewis signed to iconic Sun Records in the 50s and delivered early rock and roll hits like ‘Great Balls of Fire’ and ‘Whole Lotta Shakin’ Going On’ more than half a decade before The Beatles formed. The Lewis book will be released in 2012.
Reaction to the new single, “Love’s Like A Rodeo,” has Nashville asking for more from a new band called Soul Circus Cowboys. The band is led by singer/songwriter, Billy McKnight, who first burst onto the country music scene with his knock-out debut album titled “All-American.” Quickly known as a talented songwriter and singer, Billy aspired for more. Billy utilized the expertise of producers Frank J. Myers and Johnny Garcia along with engineer Kevin Beamish, known for his work with REO Speedwagon, to produce an album featuring the smash hit, “Talk About Love.” Joining Billy in Soul Circus Cowboys is veteran guitarist, Terry Cole, who had this to say:“After the first round of demos for ‘Love’s Like A Rodeo’ went out to radio stations, the response was very positive.”To hear the song, click the link below: http://mediaproductions.tv/LovesLikeARodeo.mp3 “In fact,” continued Cole, “we have been asked by Mike Borchetta from our label, Lofton Creek Records, to cut more songs in Nashville. He’s really pumped about it. Of course, his family has music in their blood. Mike’s son, Scott, works with Taylor Swift.”“And that means that Soul Circus Cowboys will be working again with the legendary Henry Paul who produced ‘Love’s Like A Rodeo’ for us,” added Cole. It is definitely good news for Soul Circus Cowboys. Anyone who knows the music business is familiar with Henry Paul, a front man who made appearances at big venues like the Citrus Bowl when his band was on the bill with Van Halen and the Rolling Stones.

About Billy McKnight Billy McKnight made an upward spiral on the charts with tracks such as “All-American” and “You Wanna Make Somethin of It.” With a wide vocal range, and impressive stage presence, Billy has become one of the best “crowd pleasers” country music has seen in some time.
Growing up with a mom who sang and played guitar, Billy was introduced to a variety of music – from “fifties” rock and roll to whatever was current at the time including ballads, and country.
That family experience fueled Billy’s desire to pursue his own music career.
His early heroes included Conway Twitty, the Everly Brothers, Loretta Lynn, The Eagles, E.T. Conley, the Righteous Brothers and Garth Brooks; one of his favorite singers was Roy Orbison.
Billy’s musical quest landed him a spot on Ed McMahons’ “Star Search.” Although he didn’t win, he realized then that this was the dream he needed to pursue.
He met the challenge and relocated to Nashville, Tennessee and recorded his first album, “All-American.” After working with some of the best producers in country music, Billy re-mixed and re-mastered several of his songs, and even added a few new songs, including the hit song, “Talk About Love.”

Bob Dylan wants to duet with Sir Paul McCartney. The ‘Blowin’ in the Wind’ singer – whose latest LP ‘Together Through Time’ is number one in the UK album chart – has named the former Beatles star as the artist he most wants to collaborate with. The 68-year-old musician said: “That would be exciting to do something with Paul. But you know your paths have to cross for something like that to make sense.’ Friends say 66-year-old McCartney – who has previously worked with Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Elvis Costello and recently declared Dylan his favourite living songwriter – would love to perform with Dylan. A source said: ‘This would obviously be a major moment in musical history if Bob and Paul got together and it’s quite likely that Paul will be interested.’ It would not be the first time Dylan has teamed up with a former Beatle. He was a member of supergroup the Traveling Wilburys with the late George Harrison in the 1980s. The band also featured Roy Orbison, Tom Petty and Electric Light Orchestra star Jeff Lynne.
