CMA Names Teen Band Jetset Getset 'Who New to Watch in 2013'
Teen musical group Jetset Getset (JSGS) has been named by the Country Music Association among "Who New to Watch in 2013." The prestigious list, which is published in the February issue of CMA Close Up Magazine, includes 20 rising stars in Nashville, and is widely regarded as a barometer of future success.
Other artists on the list include Dylan Scott, Scarletta, Jasmine Seibers, Morgan Frazier, Rachel Farley, Jason Cassidy, Logan Tudeen, Logan Mize, John Karl, Reed Turner, Hudson Moore, Sweetwater Rain, Joe Bachman, Erica Nicole, Tyler Barham, High Valley, Juliet & The Lonesome Romeos, Kayla Calabrese, and The Henningsens, whose debut single "American Beautiful," has been climbing the country charts.
"We are honored to appear on the CMA's list of artists to watch," said Kelli Jette, manager of Jetset Getset. "The CMA is the country music industry's most influential organization. To be acknowledged in this way is vindication for our hard work."
Fronted by singers Tori Little (16), Avery Eliason (15) and Sadie Loveland (15), Jetset Getset has lately been attracting attention in Nashville and Los Angeles, with Music Connection Magazine describing their music as "sprightly country twang" and Music News Nashville writing that Jetset Getset "has the potential to be country music's next powerhouse female trio."
"To be chosen among all the hundreds of country artists out there, is an honor," Eliason said. "It makes me happy to see how our work has paid off."
"It's surreal that this is happening," added Little. "Never in a million years would I have thought we would be named a band to watch by the CMA."
"We have always done our best, but now I feel it's more important than ever to be the best we can," said Loveland.
Jetset Getset's first Nashville-produced album, "Saturday Night," contains 10 new songs, including several by acclaimed Nashville songwriter Tom Paden, who has written hits for Reba McEntire, Kenny Rogers and other leading artists. The album was the brainchild of veteran producers Jack Gale and Jim Pierce (Playback Records), after Gale discovered the group performing last year on "The Shotgun Red Variety Show" on RFD-TV. The title track is now being released to radio stations, in collaboration with GrassRoots Promotion in Nashville and World Domination Music in Europe.
"I couldn't be prouder of Jetset Getset," Gale said. "There are very few kids singing country music, and these girls' harmonies are different from anything that anyone else is doing."
