Willie Nelson has been recovering from the flu, but the music legend can't wait to get on the road again. On May 18, he and his band the Family and Alison Krauss will perform at Ascend Amphitheater. The show comes just three weeks after Nelson, who turns 85 in April, releases new album "Last Man Standing." Krauss, one of music's finest voices, released the acclaimed solo album "Windy City" last year. In October, she played two sold-out shows at the Ryman Auditorium with David Gray.
Willie Nelson turns 85 in two months, and he plans to celebrate with a new album. "Last Man Standing" will be released on Legacy Recordings on Apr. 27, two days before the country music legend's birthday. "I don't want to be the last man standing. On second thought, maybe I do," he sings on the toe-tapping title track, in which he names the late Waylon Jennings, Ray Price, Merle Haggard and Norro Wilson. "It's getting hard to watch my pals check out; cuts like a wore-out knife.
Half a century ago, steel guitar greats Lloyd Green and Jay Dee Maness played pedal steel on the Byrds' 1968 record "Sweetheart of the Rodeo." Now, they're revisiting the seminal country rock album. On Apr. 20, they will release "Journey to the Beginning: A Steel Guitar Tribute to the Byrds."
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".
