Nashville Records™ Announces Release of More Artists

NASHVILLE, TN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 29, 2007 -- Nashville Records, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NPYC) is announcing more artists being signed for an upcoming Christmas compilation album on the Company's own Label. The album will be distributed in major markets and will feature some of country music's greatest legends and two newer artists. The album will consist of 1/2 traditional Christmas music and 1/2 original material and will include 16 songs.

Earlier in the week the Company announced artists; Daryle Singletary, Jeff Cook & Mitch Glenn and rising star, Brooke Morton. Two more artists have been named. They are Paul Overstreet and Lucas Hoge.

Paul Overstreet -- Paul Overstreet is one of the most successful songwriters in contemporary country music, penning hits for artists like George Jones, Randy Travis, Tanya Tucker, and Marie Osmond, as well as scoring hits on his own. In 1973, he graduated from high school and headed for Nashville. Despite his efforts, Overstreet couldn't break into the industry.

Eventually, his songs were being recorded by other, more established artists. In 1982, his "Same Ole Me" was recorded by George Jones, who took the song to number 5. That same year, Overstreet had his first charting single, when "Beautiful Baby" climbed to number 76. Three years later the Forrester Sisters took his "I Fell in Love Again Last Night" -- which he co-wrote with Thom Schuyler -- to number one. Later in 1985, Randy Travis had hits with two Overstreet compositions -- "On the Other Hand" (which was co-written with Don Schlitz) and "Diggin' Up Bones," the singer's first number one hit. Tanya Tucker, Marie Osmond and Paul Davis also had success with Overstreet songs that year.

Overstreet became a full-fledged recording artist in 1986 scoring a number one hit with "Baby's Got a New Baby." In 1987, Overstreet scored one of his biggest songwriting hits when he provided Randy Travis with "Forever and Ever, Amen." As his string of hits for other artists continued, Overstreet released his 1989 debut album, "Sowin' Love," which made it to the Top 40 and produced other hits. His second album, "Heroes," came out in 1991 and stayed on the charts for nearly a year. Later he released "Seein' My Father In Me."

Lucas Hoge -- Lucas Hoge has as much talent and potential as any artist and Nashville Records™ says the hits will follow.

Since then he has performed in the round at Douglas Corner, Hotel Preston, the Broken Spoke, Hall of Fame Lounge, the Alabama Grill, Tootsies Orchid Lounge and in numerous other venues.

In 2002 Lucas released his debut CD "In My Dreams." He got his first major television cut on the television smash hit and syndicated show "Smallville" on the WB with the song "If Only I Could" that he performed and co-wrote with Corey Barker and Brent Anderson.

After releasing "DIRT" Lucas made the top 5 most requested songs coming in at number 3. "DIRT" is also currently hanging on in the top 20 Independent Country songs in Europe. Lucas was nominated for "Male Country Singer/Songwriter of the Year" for "Dirt" and twice for "Male Contemporary Christian Singer/Songwriter of the Year" with "Reign Over Me" and "Get The Door." He was also nominated for "Country Album of the Year" for "DIRT" in the 16th Annual LA Music Awards 2006. Lucas walked away winning: "Country Album Of The Year" and "Male Contemporary Christian Singer/Songwriter of the Year" for "Get The Door."
