Tuesday 8pm: Feature Artist – Stevie Nicks

Stephanie Lynn Nicks (born May 26, 1948) is an American singer-songwriter.

Nicks is best known for her work as a songwriter and vocalist with Fleetwood Mac, and also for her chart-topping solo career. She is known for her distinctive voice, mystical stage persona and poetic, symbolic lyrics. Collectively, her work both as a member of Fleetwood Mac and as a solo artist has produced over 40 top-50 hits and sold over 140 million records, making her one of the best selling music acts of all time with Fleetwood Mac.

Nicks has been named one of the 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time, and as one of the world’s top “100 Greatest Singers of All Time” by Rolling Stone. As a member of Fleetwood Mac, she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998. She has garnered eight Grammy Award nominations and two American Music Award nominations as a solo artist. She has won numerous awards with Fleetwood Mac, including a Grammy Award and five Grammy Award nominations.

Nicks joined Fleetwood Mac in 1975 along with her then-boyfriend, Lindsey Buckingham. Rumours, Fleetwood Mac’s second album after the incorporation of Nicks and Buckingham, was the best-selling album of the year of its release, and to date, has sold over 40 million copies worldwide, making it the fifth-highest selling studio album of all time. The album remained at number one on the American albums chart for 31 weeks and reached Number One in various countries worldwide. The album won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1978. It produced four U.S. top-10 singles, with Nicks’ “Dreams” being the band’s first and only U.S. number-one hit.

In 1981, while remaining a member of Fleetwood Mac, Nicks began her solo career, releasing the album Bella Donna, which topped the Billboard album charts and has reached multi-platinum status. She has released a total of eight solo studio albums to date, with her most recent titled 24 Karat Gold: Songs from the Vault, released in October 2014. – Wikipedia

Tuesday 6pm: Feature Artist – Rosanne Cash

Rosanne Cash (born May 24, 1955) is an American singer-songwriter and author. She is the eldest daughter of country music icon Johnny Cash and Vivian Liberto Cash Distin, Johnny Cash’s first wife.

Although Cash is often classified as a country artist, her music draws on many genres, including folk, pop, rock, blues, and most notably americana. In the 1980s, she had a string of chart-topping singles, which crossed musical genres and landed on both the country and pop charts, the most commercially successful being her 1981 breakthrough hit “Seven Year Ache”, which topped the U.S. country singles charts and reached the Top 30 on the U.S. pop singles charts.

In 1990, Cash released Interiors, a spare, introspective album which signaled a break from her pop country past.

The following year, in 1991, Cash ended her marriage and moved from Nashville to New York City, where she has continued to write, record, and perform. Since 1991 she has released five albums, written two books, and edited a collection of short stories. Her fiction and essays have been published in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, The Oxford American, New York Magazine, and various other periodicals and collections.

Cash won a Grammy in 1985 for “I Don’t Know Why You Don’t Want Me”, and has received 12[1] other Grammy nominations. She has had 11 No. 1 country hit singles, 21 Top 40 country singles, and two gold records. Cash was the 2014 recipient of Smithsonian magazine’s American Ingenuity Award in the Performing Arts category.

On February 8, 2015, Cash won three Grammy awards for Best Americana Album for The River & the Thread, Best American Roots Song with John Leventhal and Best American Roots Performance for A Feather’s Not A Bird.

Cash was honored further on October 11, 2015, when she was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Cash was portrayed, as a child, by Hailey Anne Nelson in Walk the Line, the 2005 Academy-award-winning film about her father’s life. – Wikipedia

Saturday 9am: Feature Artist – Bob Dylan Part I (1962 – 1986)

Bob Dylan (born Robert Allen Zimmerman, May 24, 1941) is an American singer-songwriter, author, and painter who has been an influential figure in popular music and culture for more than five decades. Much of his most celebrated work dates from the 1960s, when he became a reluctant “voice of a generation” with songs such as “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “The Times They Are a-Changin'” that became anthems for the Civil Rights Movement and anti-war movement. In 1965, he controversially abandoned his early fan-base in the American folk music revival, recording a six-minute single, “Like a Rolling Stone”, which enlarged the scope of popular music. – Wikipedia
