GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE Version 2, June 1991 Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc. 51 Franklin St, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110, USA Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed. Preamble The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too. When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things. To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it. For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights. We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software. Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors' reputations. Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all. The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow. GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below, refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program" means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you". Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the Program does. Jessie G Introduces Debut Country Single ‘Drop A Line’ | For The Country Record


Jessie G Introduces Debut Country Single ‘Drop A Line’

Singer-songwriter Jessie G (Hook & Line) will make official introductions to the country music sector and its listeners with her debut single entitled Drop A Line.” Co-written alongside Joshua Withenshaw and Davis Branch, and produced by Grammy-award winning entertainer Gretchen Wilson, the track is featured on Jessie G’s upcoming self-titled independent EP and is scheduled to impact radio Monday, April 18, 2016.

The catchy, up beat, tongue-in-cheek tune is a comfortable mix of country rock and swampy blues. With the kick of Miranda Lambert’s “Gunpowder And Lead” and the reveled sentiment of “Redneck Woman” (Gretchen Wilson), the harmonica and banjo-driven “Drop A Line” showcases badass, girl-powered, matter-of-fact lyrics fully dressed in a fun-loving, good-time vibe.

Don’t you wanna pull in a keeper?
Head over heels; hook, line and sinker
Make you wanna tie the knot, rock on my finger
Drop a line

“This song fits me like a glove. It’s a play on words encompassing my family heritage (four generations of fisherman) and our lifestyle; it’s who I am,” said Jessie G. “The songwriting is demonstrative of my style; the lyrics are poetic and have multiple meanings; the vocals are gritty and the instrumentation is bluesy and rockin’. I think the song makes a bold statement; I’m laying it out there just like folks would usually only hear from men!”

As a youngster, Jessie spent much of her childhood tagging alongside her dad on the fishing docks, aboard the hand-built family boat or selling fresh-caught seafood in her hometown of Brookings, Oregon. The lifestyle and hard work became Jessie’s early means to support her true passion—to become a performing country artist.

Jessie’s music translation infuses a well-rounded mix of genres—the sounds of Janis Joplin, Reba McEntire, The Dixie Chicks, Halestorm, Van Halen and Aerosmith. Listeners will be entrenched by her hard rock edge intertwined with jazz rhythms all wrapped up in a country mix bursting with flavor.

“From the moment I heard her voice, I knew she was someone special with special talent,” said Gretchen Wilson. “I’ve met and seen some extraordinarily talented artists, but none have made the impression that Jessie has. Jessie G means business when it comes to her music and we should welcome her to the music business!”

A seasoned performer, Jessie has taken the stage at notable fairs and festivals (including The Oregon Jamboree, Willamette Country Music Festival, Cape Blanco Music Festival and more), and at some of Nashville’s hot spots (such as Listening Room Café, Tin Roof and Winners).

Jessie will release her debut seven-song self-titled EP (JESSIE G/produced by Gretchen Wilson featuring Wilson co-writes and harmony vocals) in the coming months. “Drop A Line” will be available via all digital outlets Monday, April 4, 2016; Ed Gertler/Digital Delivery Services will oversee the digital retail distribution.
