Maybe it was the round of tequilas they just downed, but the Last Bandoleros are fired up. In fact, the four members of the young country-rock band – bassist Diego Navaira and his older brother, drummer Emilio Navaira, and guitarists Jerry Fuentes and Derek James – are nearly causing a scene at an outside table at Dino's, the East Nashville dive bar and burger joint, as they debate the merits of Liam Gallagher's just-released solo album.
Cabinet, the Americana band that blended bluegrass, country and jam elements and built a dedicated fan base via inspired, often frenetic concerts, have announced they're taking an "indefinite hiatus." Writing on Facebook on Wednesday, the group, formed in 2006 and named one of Rolling Stone Country's Artists You Need to Know in 2015, attributed the break to a need to "take a step back, reflect, focus on our families, on ourselves, breathe and be grateful.
Chris Janson's two Number One singles, the 2015 breakout "Buy Me a Boat" and this year's "Fix a Drink," painted the Missouri singer-songwriter as a guy focused on the short-term: daydreaming of being rich or about that tantalizing 5 o'clock libation. His new single "Drunk Girl," however, presents Janson – a devoted father who doesn't miss an opportunity to praise his wife and family – as an emerging woke voice in a genre that, for the past few years, liked to call out women's "sugar shakers."
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
