JUDY SEALE INTERNATIONAL
DELIVERS COUNTRY MUSIC TO EXPAND FAN BASE.

In the last eight months, Judy Seale, President and CEO of Judy Seale International has produced and facilitated over thirty international festivals and concert events in 13 countries to bring Country music to a new and growing audience; the international audience.

NASHVILLE, Tennessee (PRWEB) In the last eight months, Judy Seale, President and CEO of Judy Seale International has produced and facilitated over thirty international festivals and concert events in 13 countries to bring Country music to a new and growing audience--the international audience. She's orchestrated events spanning from Holland, Switzerland, Norway, Japan, Spain, Sweden, France, and Scotland and has coordinated concert events for the benefit of our troops in Kuwait, Qatar, Korea and Iraq. She's acted as international talent coordinator for numerous festivals throughout Europe and Asia.

This year Judy Seale International has brought artists overseas to perform in front of crowds ranging from 250 to 30,000. Offering their talents in the effort to bring Country music abroad this year include recording artists Deborah Allen, the Bellamy Brothers, Jolie Edwards, Danni Leigh, Brad Martin, Heather Myles, Brad Paisley and Chely Wright to name a few.

According to Seale, "An international tour is an educational and memorable experience for any artist. But more important, overseas opportunities can expand artist development potential in the long term to build a base which can last for many years--extending the artist's career overall. Touring internationally is a win-win for the artist and our international friends who enjoy their music."

Judy's international efforts span over sixteen years beginning with her first tour in Japan to accompany Brenda Lee who performed in more than 12 cities. Seale's international tour achievements include production of the "first" country events in Japan, Hong Kong, Brazil, Thailand, Argentina, and Manila.

In addition to producing international tours and festivals, Judy Seale International currently provides management services on behalf of Jolie Edwards, Pat Boone, and Shalom.

Her charitable endeavors include soliciting artists to perform for the U.S. military based throughout the world. These military tours have provided welcomed entertainment for troops serving in the conflicts in Haiti, Bosnia, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Uzbekistan and Kosovo as well as Christmas Tours for troops away from family and friends while based in remote locations during the holidays.

Seale recognizes strong and growing interest in Country music from the UK, Ireland, Scandanavia and Australia. In 2004, Judy Seale International has artists scheduled to perform in Switzerland, Japan, Norway, Sweden, and Korea.

Seale adds, "It's amazing, when considering technology alone, the world is becoming a smaller place."

Seale is currently in the development stages to organize Stars for Stripes, a non-profit organization to support our troops stationed overseas. Details to follow.

"AN EVENING WITH LARRY GATLIN
AND
THE GATLIN BROTHERS."

SPECIAL DVD RELEASE. FIRST OF A TWO PART SERIES

   Nashville- Have you ever seen, or remember seeing, a real first class entertainer…someone who shows you many faces of the entertainment sphere in one single setting…an entertainer who can completely captivate any audience with effortless command from start to finish…an entertainer who's quick witted humor grips the very core of your laughter with a logical brilliancy that can only be found on the other side of "crazy," somewhere deep down in the heart of "been there, done that," Texas…an entertainer who's voice is still perfectly unaffected by the wear and tear of a 40 year star-studded career, not to mention three vocal surgeries completed, and sings with soul that far exceeds his religious nature…quite simply, have you ever seen a man who's live performance is the quintessential example of "genuine showmanship?" No? Well, then you haven't seen Larry Gatlin.
   "An Evening with Larry Gatlin and The Gatlin Brothers" is the first DVD release of a two-part series available only through www.GatlinBrothers.com. Brought to you by Intersound/Magnet, this exclusive live performance footage is among some of the very first recorded since Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers took a break from their ten-year hiatus and reunited for a select city tour earlier this year. This "Homecoming" performance, recorded on country music's original "granddaddy" stage in Nashville, Tennessee, reveals the unmistakable sound of the three Grammy award-winning brothers who brought the music world songs like "All The Gold In California," "Broken Lady," "Houston," "Statues Without Hearts," and who can forget "I've Done Enough Dyin' Today." If you missed the one-time television debut of "An Evening with Larry Gatlin and The Gatlin Brothers" on GAC (Great American Country) that aired earlier this month then make sure to log on to the website. This special edition can be yours for $14.98 plus $4.00 shipping and handling.
   The second part of the series will bring
you Larry, Rudy, and Steve's interpretation of a "family Christmas," acclaimed for their yuletide antics, their renditions of Christmas classics and their incredible gift of the Gospel flavor. "Christmastime with Larry Gatlin and The Gatlin Brothers" will be released on October 14, 2003. This special collection will not only make the perfect gift, but if you yourself are an avid music lover…here is a state of the art lesson in "music 101." This is vintage "Gatlin" and it shows beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are still on top of their game…don't believe it? See for yourself.
