Country artist Sammy Sadler Added to Turnberry Records Family
It is with much enthusiasm that Turnberry Records and Management Team, a Division of The Bluegrass Standard Magazine, announces a new relationship with country artist Sammy Sadler, for whom the company will be both booking dates and releasing music via its label.
Sadler -- who has logged three independent singles, four “Top 15” records on the Texas Music Chart, and Three Billboard country singles (recorded with John Anderson and Steve Wariner) -- is working on an upcoming 10-track CD, with the first single releasing soon via the Turnberry Records label. It is expected to be a mix of up-tempo numbers and ballads that are pure classic country.
“I’m excited about signing with them,” Sadler said. “It’s been a long time since I’ve been excited about signing a record deal. It’s gonna be good to get my music out to the people.”
Sadler said he’s been booking a solid slate of dates in anticipation of the new album and hopes the Turnberry relationship will further contribute to getting his music heard by more and more fans. In addition to working on the new CD, he’s knee-deep in his national “Takin’ The Country Back” tour, featuring a five-piece band (lead guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, steel) and fellow country musicians Ken Mellons and Jeff Carsons.
The tour kicked off in March at Nashville’s storied Station Inn and was broadcast globally via 650AM-WSM’s Station Inn Sessions with Mike Terry. Sadler fans might recognize some of his previous hits, which include numbers such as “Heart Shaped Like Texas” and “I’ll Always Have Denver.”
Jeff Brown -- of the Freedom Festival -- commented on Sadler and Mellon’s participation.
“I had the pleasure of working with Sammy and Ken as part of the ‘Takin’ the Country Back’ tour. These guys are true professionals,” Brown said. “They define real country music.”
Sadler -- whose life story is rich, complicated with intrigue, and worthy of its own country song -- has been captured in book form, where he recounts being shot back in 1989, just as his music career was taking off. The near-fatal gunshot wound -- and the dramatic events surrounding it -- inform the life and music of this critically-acclaimed musician who can best be described as genuine country.
