David Luning "Whiskey Bottle" airs on TV Series Grimm April 22, 2016
The song is “Whiskey Bottle,” a fan favorite at local concerts and club dates, written and performed by David Luning of Forestville, who won national attention a little over years ago, when “American Idol” televised his audition and interview. He said at the time he just wanted exposure and didn’t expect to win, but he was happy to make the top 100.
“Whiskey Bottle,” a country blues lament laced with wry humor, recounts a series of unlucky romances, leaving the bottle the best prospect for companionship.
Jen Adan: penned #1 hit "She Wouldn't Be Gone"
“She Wouldn’t Be Gone”, Number One song on the Hot Country Songs chart for February 2009, was written by local West Coast Songwriter Jennifer Adan. The song, performed by Blake Shelton and recorded on his latest album Startin’ Fires has earned Adan her first #1 party at the end of February in Nashville.
Allmusic critic Steve Leggett, states "[It's] a brilliant portrayal of a man who finally finds his passion and love for a woman when it's way too late and she's already gone, and the chorus swells to passionate, almost white-knuckle perfection. It's a great song and Shelton gives it everything."
West Coast Songwriter, Executive Director Ian Crombie was thrilled to hear the news, “We at WCS are so happy for her. She really has worked hard to develop her songwriting craft by attending as many WCS events. It’s a tribute to her tenacity.”
Overall, Shelton has charted fourteen singles on the country charts, including five Number One hits. Shelton will be performing “She Wouldn’t be Gone” at the Oracle Arena on March 21st, 2009.
