American Music Icon Loretta Lynn Revisits Her Musical Roots On First New Studio Album In Over Ten Years

‘Full Circle’ To Be Released March 4, 2016 On Legacy Recordings

Legacy Recordings will release Full Circle, the first new studio album in over ten years from American music icon Loretta Lynn, on March 4, 2016. Produced by Patsy Lynn Russell and John Carter Cash, and recorded at the Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee, Full Circle takes listeners on a journey through Loretta’s musical story, from the Appalachian folk songs and gospel music she learned as a child, to new interpretations of her classic hits and country standards, to songs newly-written for the project.

Drawing inspiration from personal memories and deep connections to American music, Lynn’s 13 new recordings capture the essence of these songs in intimate new performances. (Full Circle is available for pre-order now at Amazon Music: http://smarturl.it/ll_fc_amzncd.)

Full Circle is Loretta’s first album of new recordings since Van Lear Rose, her 2004 collaboration with Jack White, which took home a pair of Grammys including Best Country Album of the Year. It is also volume one of the Cash Cabin Recordings, a series of new album projects imagined and created at the Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee.

Highlights from FULL CIRCLE include “Lay Me Down,” a duet with Willie Nelson; “Everything It Takes,” featuring guest vocals from Elvis Costello; “Whispering Sea,” a new version of the first song Loretta ever wrote; and soulful new renditions of some of Lynn’s classic tunes, including rousing renditions of “Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven” and “Fist City.” The album also includes traditional Appalachian songs from Loretta’s childhood such as “Black Jack David” and “I Never Will Marry.” At 83 years old, Lynn’s voice sounds as powerful as ever, and this new material only adds to her legend as a performer.

Loretta Lynn has long been established as the undisputed Queen of Country Music, with more than 50 years of recording and touring to her name. A self-taught guitarist and songwriter, Lynn was one of the most distinctive performers in Nashville in the 1960s and 1970s. She shook up Nashville by writing her own songs, many of which tackled boundary-pushing topics drawn from her own life experiences as a wife and mother. “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” “Fist City” and “Don’t Come Home A’ Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ on Your Mind)” are just three of 16 country No. 1 singles.

Lynn is also one of the most awarded musicians of all time. She has been inducted into more music Halls of Fame than any female recording artist, including The Country Music Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and was the first woman to be named the Country Music Association‘s Entertainer of the Year in 1972. Lynn received Kennedy Center Honors in 2003 and a Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2013. She has won four Grammy Awards (including a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010) and sold more than 45 million records worldwide.

Fans will also have an opportunity to watch a new documentary about Loretta’s remarkable life and career when American Masters — Loretta Lynn: Still a Mountain Girl premieres nationwide Friday, March 4, 2016, 9:00-11:00 p.m. on PBS (check local listings). The film will explore the country legend’s hard-fought road to stardom. From her Appalachian roots to the Oscar-winning biopic of her life, “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” Lynn struggled to balance family and her music career and is still going strong over 50 years later.

Boll & Branch Unveils New Line of 100% Organic Baby Products

The Fair Trade Certified Line Features Two Styles Of Baby Blankets And Four Styles Of Crib Sheets.

Boll & Branch, the market leader in organic and sustainable luxury bedding,announced the launch of a revolutionary line of products specifically designed for babies and children. Made from the identical 100% Organic Cotton material as the brand’s sheets, blankets and towels, Boll & Branch‘s new line of crib sheets and baby blankets set a new industry standard by becoming the first of their kind to be certified by Fair Trade USA and the Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS). Impeccably designed and made from materials that were grown without dangerous chemicals, parents won’t have to choose between style, comfort and safety when laying their babies down to rest.

People spend a third of their lives in bed, and yet the bedding industry is dominated by non-sustainable, mass-produced products that are not good for farmers, customers, or the environment. Boll & Branch was founded in 2014 to provide a better alternative. All Boll & Branch’s products are created with pure, organic cotton that farmers earn a good wage growing. The company also sells directly- to-consumers online, which makes it possible to offer the unique, high-quality products at an affordable price and with total transparency. Boll & Branch’s products cost 50-75% less than traditional retail.

The company’s mission is clearly resonating. Boll & Branch is one of the fastest growing consumer brands ever and one of the largest purchasers of organic cotton in the world. Founded by parents, Scott & Missy Tannen, the founders realized that the same customers who care about the quality of their own sheets care just as much, if not more, about the bedding for their babies. This inspired them to develop the baby line, which is now available for sale online at https://www.bollandbranch.com/baby.

As a mom, I’ve struggled with designing my daughters’ bedrooms,” said Boll & Branch co-founder and President Missy Tannen. “I only wanted my children to sleep on the safest materials, but in doing so I always had to sacrifice style and design. I’m thrilled that after almost a year of development, we’ve created the sweetest and kindest bedding line. With both our designs and safety standards, there are many sweet dreams ahead.”

Just like the time and care that is put into making Boll & Branch’s adult sheets, the baby line reflects the same attention to detail, and handmade, quality feel. The crib sheets come in four styles — three prints and one solid. The prints were created with original works of art. “Cottontail” features a pencil sketched bunny pattern that highlights the “cotton” tail, a reference to the cotton that the company is known for. The “seedling” pattern is an abstract version of Boll & Branch’s logo done in watercolor, and the trellis pattern was created using markers, to have slightly imperfect lines. Solid sheets will be available in petal (light pink), sky (light blue), sweet grey, navy, white and natural.

Boll & Branch’s baby blankets are 30″ x 40″ and come in two styles: cable knit and a flat knit. The classic cable knit patterns will be available in petal, sky, grey, antique white and navy. The second blanket style is a flat knit in a small diamond “Origami” pattern, and comes in petal/white, sky/white, and grey/white. All the sheets and blankets share the same color scheme, creating a nursery that is instantly coordinated and beautiful.

Breaking News!: John Frieda Hair Care 2016 New Product Pre-Launches – Available NOW at Target.com

JOHN FRIEDA® COLOUR REINVENTION. RETHINK EVERYTHING.

Unique Breakthrough Innovation That Allows You To Alter Your Hair Colour Right In The Shower In Just Minutesimage002

Christmas came early this year for women (and men) who love and adore John Frieda hair products. The new products being introduced (and re-introduced) will not only give you workable options in-between color appointments at the salon, they will also save you tons of time so that you can go about enjoying your life. They’re the kind of hair care innovations you dream about – products that let you wash in brighter or deeper tones in minutes, perfectly blur regrowth to give your color extra mileage between touch-ups, and conjure up satiny-soft, air-dry waves you can run your fingers through.

You only have to choose the effect: With revolutionary, in-shower treatments that take your hair up to 1 shade lighter or darker for just $9.99, John Frieda® Hair Care, once again, is changing the hair-color game. And while the majority of these products won’t be officially available until 2016, you can get these John Frieda® innovations online through a target.com presale event, starting today.

Sheer Blonde Go Blonder In-Shower Treatment

Sheer Blonde Go Blonder In-Shower Treatment

If you’re a natural or color-treated blonde, the brand’s new Sheer Blonde® Go Blonder In-Shower Treatment (the newest product in its celebrated Sheer Blonde® line) instantly lifts blonde hair up to 1 shade in just one wash, to help you maintain a bright, natural-looking blonde. And it works all over, softening dark roots and lightening blonde tones to give you believable, shimmering colour from root to tip. The peroxide-based lightener lifts melanin from the hair cuticle to brighten strands and is designed to be used once a month or 1-2 times between your coloring cycle.

Meanwhile, the John Frieda® Hair Care experts have completely reinvented its Brilliant Brunette® Collection, with treatments, shampoos and conditioners that let every brunette customize the shade of her dreams – whether warm and honey toned or dark and rich – right there in the shower. For both brunette in-shower treatments below, the John Frieda® Hair Care experts are also introducing complementary shampoos and conditioners. Made with a proprietary technology, New Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Brighter™ In-Shower Treatment instantly lifts brunette color up to 1 shade, bringing out its lighter, warmer dimensions. New Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Deeper™ In-Shower Treatment instantly darkens hair by up to 1 shade, locking in rich, cool brunette colour with dimension and shine. The semi-permanent formula can also be used to refresh fading brunette hues. Use it after shampooing, once or twice a week.

As with all the John Frieda® new in-shower treatment for blondes, it’s designed to be used once a month. Both formulas deliver gentle, all-over permanent lightening without radically altering your colour. Bonus: They’re refreshingly easy to use (no precise application required), with built-in toners to ensure perfect, natural-looking results.

New Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Deeper™ Shampoo and Conditioner ($9.99 each) gradually infuses cool tones to keep brunette shades fresher, longer. Conversely, the new Visibly Brighter™ Shampoo and Conditioner ($9.99 each) gradually brighten & illuminate glowing brunette tones for a natural looking, sun-kissed glow.

It’s hard to believe that Martha Stewart Living is twenty-five years old! We are so proud to have created content that ultimately established and founded a new lifestyle category for publishing. We have seen our readership grow tremendously over the years, and our editorial content continues to inspire, instruct, and please our readers,” says Martha Stewart, Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Inc.

For the anniversary issue’s cover, Martha Stewart posed for world-renowned artist Will Cotton, whose fantastical painting features Martha in a sweet, sugary wonderland. This portrait provided the inspiration for eight delectable holiday desserts in the issue. The December/January issue celebrates the silver anniversary with brilliant decorating, recipe and gift ideas— with the classic sheen of silver. There is also a cookie advent calendar, which highlights 25 of Martha’s favorite cookies, one from every year the magazine has been published. All the recipes are available at www.marthastewart.com/cookie-calendar.

When Martha launched the magazine, she set out to create a new kind of publication, one that focused on the joy to be had in all aspects of the home,” says Martha Stewart Living Editor-in-Chief, Eric Pike. “The brand and the magazine have evolved with the times, but we have always remained true to the core mission. Twenty-five amazing years later we are still producing beautiful, inspirational, how-to content in every issue – and that is truly something to celebrate.”

The 25th Anniversary issue features a number of special silver anniversary-themed features including:

Magical sugary original candies and confections that showcase the versatility of this simple ingredient,

Show-stopping DIY decorative touches that will set the mood for winter celebrations, including chic cookie tins, glitter-dusted candles, sparkling wreaths, and no-sew clutches embellished with silver leaf

Shimmering make-up picks for creating a glamorous holiday glow this holiday season.

“We are extremely proud of this special anniversary issue, and are looking forward to continuing to delight and inspire readers for 25 more years,” says Pike. “It is especially rewarding to see Martha Stewart Living‘s strong appeal among millennials, who personalize and customize our content in ways we never imagined; it’s fun to see all of their versions across all social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.”

Meredith National Media Group Vice President and Martha Stewart Living Publisher Daren Mazzucca notes the brand continues to resonate with consumers and marketers.

The magazine’s passion for celebrating and enhancing readers’ lives has never been more relevant to marketers,” says Mazzucca. “Our ability to engage with consumers across multiple channels and platforms about what matters most to them in their lives, homes and personal pursuits has enabled us to grow the magazine in new and exciting ways.”

According to the most recent Magazine 360 Report, the Martha Stewart Living magazine brand reaches a multi-channel audience of 16.4 million. In addition, the recent MRI.com Score report found that Martha Stewart Living has grown by double digits (11 percent) among Millennial audiences. Overall, Meredith serves 100 million unduplicated American women and more than 60 percent of U.S. Millennial women.

Mazzucca notes that Martha Stewart Living has posted growth in a number of key advertising categories, including retail, automotive, toiletries and cosmetics, and food and beverage. This growth has been supported by well-recognized brands and marketers, such as GMC, Toyota, Ford, Pier 1, Macy’s, The Home Depot, Mars/M&Ms, Lindt Chocolate, Hillshire Farm, Bertolli, McCormick, and Oscar Mayer.

Top brands recognize that Martha Stewart Living resonates and engages with their key audiences on many platforms,” says Mazzucca. “This includes special integrated advertising programs such as the Advent Calendar – featuring 25 of Martha’s favorite cookies – which is sponsored by Starbucks.”
