Kane Brown Teams With Marshmello for New Single, “One Thing Right” [Listen]

Even More Music News - Fri, 06/21/2019 - 10:24

Kane Brown joined forces with electronic music producer/DJ Marshmello for a new single, “One Thing Right.”

Penned by Kane, Marshmello, Jesse Frasure, Josh Hoge and Matthew McGinn, “One Thing Right” is Marshmello’s first collaboration with a country artist. The tune was initially slated for Kane’s 2018 sophomore album, Experiment, but Kane decided to send it to Marshmello after meeting him at the 2018 American Music Awards.

“Marshmello had reached out to say congratulations while I was at the AMAs,” says Kane. “I sent him the song and he ended up being really passionate about it, and said he wanted to even make it a single, so we ended up working on it together. I am a huge Marshmello fan and think he is an incredible artist in his space, so I am thrilled to be able to get to collaborate with him on this. It’s amazing seeing a song you wrote come to life like that.”

Marshmello and Kane will bring “One Thing Right” to Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series on August 30.

Singer Sues Carrie Underwood, NBC & NFL Over “Game On” Copyright Infringement

Even More Music News - Fri, 06/21/2019 - 08:47

Singer/songwriter Heidi Merrill filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Carrie Underwood, NBC and the NFL over “Game On,” the 2018 theme song to Sunday Night Football.

According to the lawsuit, Heidi claims that her song, “Game On,” which she penned with three others in 2016, recorded and posted to YouTube in 2017, is “substantially—even strikingly—similar, if not identical” to Carrie’s version of the song, which was co-penned by Carrie, Chris DeStefano and Brett James.

Heidi also claims she met Carrie’s producer, Mark Bright, at an event in Nashville and pitched the song to him.

Heidi and the co-writers of the song have named Carrie, Mark Bright, NBC, the NFL, Sony Corp., Warner Music Group and more as co-defendants in the lawsuit, which was filed in New York on June 19.

The plaintiffs are seeking an unspecified amount in damages.
