Reckless Kelly Announces New Album Release Date, Tour Schedule

Reckless Kelly has a new album on the way.

The veteran country act announced this week that it will release its new album Sunset Motel this summer.  The album is the band’s first since 2013’s Grammy® Award-winning album Long Night Moon and its ninth full-length studio recording.  In anticipation of the album’s release, the band premiered the album’s lead single ‘How Can You Love Him (You Don’t Even Like Him)’ via Rolling Stone Country this week, and announced a series of live dates in support of the album.  Pre-orders for Sunset Motel open July 29th and will include a free, instant download of its new single.  Rolling Stone Country writer Chris Parton said of the band’s new album, “Sunset Motel finds the band in familiar musical territory — bounding fearlessly between the sounds of jangling heartland rock and scrappy, hardscrabble country, with stories that refuse to dumb themselves down for mass appeal.”

The band’s upcoming tour in support of Sunset Motel is now officially under way.  It will see the band spending the weekend in Lubbock, Texas before moving on to Reno, Nevada to start the new week and the new month.  There are also dates in Colorado, South Dakota, and even North Carolina among many others included in the band’s roughly 14-week tour.  The full schedule for the band’s tour is noted below.

ESPN Announces More On-Air Moves Ahead Of 2016 – ’17 NFL Season

NFL on ESPN Logo

ESPN is making even more moves in its on-air ranks as the 2016 – 2017 NFL season nears.

It was announced this week that NFL Nation’s Giants reporter Dan Graziano has now been named a National NFL Insider for ESPN.  This means that he will have more on-air presence including appearances on NFL Insiders, NFL Live, SportsCenter, ESPN Radio, ESPN.com, and ESPN The Magazine.  Graziano’s first official day in the position was this past Friday, July 22nd when he broke the story about Steelers’ star running back Le’Veon Bell’s upcoming four-game suspension.  The punishment was put in place in reaction to Bell violating the leagues drug policy.  Chad Millman, Vice President and Editorial Director of Domestic Digital content noted Graziano’s contributions to ESPN in discussing his new move.  “Dan has been a strong reporter for us on so many platforms over the course of five years,” Millman said.  “He consistently breaks stories on a national level and has an understanding of what’s happening across the entire league. This new role benefits our NFL team and, most importantly, our readers and viewers.”   When he originally started out at ESPN in 2011, he served as an NFL East blogger.  In 2013 he turned his focus specifically to the New York Giants as ESPN’s NFL Nation Network grew.  He has also served as a contributor to ESPN’s NFL Insiders since its inception in 2013.

As Graziano moves upward in ESPN’s on-air ranks, he will be replaced in his previous position by Jordan Raanan.  He was most recently the Giants reporter for NJ Advance Media.  He boasts more than a decade of experience as he comes in to his new position.  He also has covered the St. Louis Rams for ESPN for three seasons.  On a related note, Nick Wagoner has been named the new San Francisco 49ers reporter for ESPN.  More information on these and other moves being made by ESPN is available online now at:
