Country trailblazer, Kalie Shorr is releasing two additional tracks in preparation for her upcoming album Open Booktoday. Premiered by Taste of Country, “Too Much To Say” is an honest take on being honest and a fitting introduction to Shorr's new sonic direction. Tapering the rock n' roll sound to a more sustained acoustic vibe, her second song debuted by The Boot, “Escape,” is an emotionally raw but hopeful piece that has proven to be a fan favorite at Shorr's live shows. Both songs are available instantly with the pre-order of the album which officially launches today along with a Spotify pre-save campaign. These dynamic songs are just a taste of what is to come as she will be releasing her debut full-length album Open Book on September 27. Additionally, nationally-syndicated radio host, Bobby Bones, is featuring Shorr's first single from the new record, “Lullaby,” this week on his acclaimed Women of iHeartCountry radio show.

Irving Weiser composed the song 'There I Go' which was #1 in the USA for three weeks in December, 1940. It was recorded by Frank Sinatra, Doris Day, Fats Waller, Dinah Washington and about 30 others. Weiser also composed the music for the song 'That's My Affair' which is sung by the Andrews Sisters in the Universal film Always A Bridesmaid. Weiser turned to teaching music in the 1950s, but never stopped composing. He placed his songs in a box in his basement where they remained hidden for decades. After Weiser's grandson, Adam Kreiselman, discovered the box, he founded Kreiselman Music Publishing to focus on the Weiser catalog. Demos and videos are regularly produced and all songs are available for licensing.
