The annual Peach Music Festival, set for August 10th through 13th at Montage Mountain in Scranton, Pennsylvania, has announced a tribute to two of its co-founders: Gregg Allman and Butch Trucks. Both members of the Allman Brothers Band, who launched the Peach in 2012, died this past year.
When Vince Gill joined the Eagles last month for his first rehearsal with the storied band, ahead of the group's two reunion shows at July festival gigs in New York and L.A., the country singer-guitarist had to pinch himself. "It was a surreal experience," he says, sitting on a couch in his home studio in Nashville, his 21 Grammys and vast guitar collection behind him. "Don's there, Timothy is there and I'm singing these songs. It was an amazing gift."
Jason Aldean, Darius Rucker and Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley performed "Midnight Rider" to open the 2017 CMT Music Awards in honor of late Southern-rock icon Gregg Allman. The country trio was joined by Derek Trucks, former member of a later incarnation of the Allman Brothers Band, on guitar. Shrouded in shadow, Aldean, Rucker and Kelley began the song a cappella, trading lines, with Aldean remarking, "This is for the one and only, Mr. Gregg Allman."
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
