MP3 DeLon - Highways Of Life


12 MP3 Songs
COUNTRY: Traditional Country, COUNTRY: Country Folk

AT LAST IT''S HERE!!! DeLon''s new album, "HIGHWAYS OF LIFE," HIS SECOND ALBUM, brings to you a collection of songs, eleven of which were written by the artist himself.

DeLon''s new release to overseas country radio for January, 2005, is a song entitled, "RAISED WATCHIN'' FOOTBALL"(on a black ''n white TV). This song''s lyrics have taken on a new emphasis, because of the terrible Tsunami disasters at the end of 2004. The song is not about football, but rather it is about people, regardless of race, ethnicity, or religion, having respect for one another and helping one another. We are seeing, in real life, the suggestions of the song being played out by people of many Nations, who are working together to assist and help in the recovery of this terrible tragedy.

This album has achieved several things, since its release back in 2003.

As of January 15, 2005, according to the "WORLDWIDE MAINSTREAM AIRPLAY CHART" for both independent and mainstream artists, including the "big stars" from Nashville, DeLon was ranked in the "TOP 10" at the # 7 position out of 3,167 total artists, who had their music played on overseas country radio stations. This includes all of Europe, England, Scotland, Ireland, the Scandanavian countries, New Zealand, Australia and several Asian countries. And, for the period of January, 2004 through March 31, 2005, DeLon averaged a # 52 ranking on the above-mentioned airplay chart. In addition, here are some other notable achievements:

"FAMILY FARM" This song reached the #17
position on the EMS European
"TOP 30" in April, 2003.

"RODEO LIFE" This song reached the #13 spot
on the EMS European "TOP 30" as

"AWESOME ARIZONA" This song reached the #59 spot on

chart as of February, 2004.

"KOFA" This song reached the #4 spot on

John Rees, DeLon''s producer, music arranger and keyboard player on his albums, has assembled another great group of Nashville musicians playing on this album. Jimmy Capps,a member of the Grand Ole Opry staff band in Nashville and a well-known sessions musician plays lead guitar. Hal Rugg, steel guitar player and member of the steel guitar player''s Hall of Fame, makes an appearance on the song, WHAT CONDITION IS OUR COUNTRY IN?--PART II". The mix of musical instruments is really exciting, including lead guitar, bass guitar, rhythm guitar, steel guitar, keyboards, drums, fiddle, dobro and banjo. You will enjoy listening to this album over and over again.

"WHAT CONDITION IS OUR COUNTRY IN?--PART II" is a song addressing the situation after the 9/11 tragedy in the USA. This song prompted personal letters to DeLon from both President George Bush and then-mayor of New York City, Rudy Guilani.

DeLon is a voting member of the CMA(Country Music Association) and has been since fulfilling the requirements for membership in 2002.

DeLon, a former professional baseball player and businessman
began his career in 1997, when he made his first trip to Nashville to record his debut album, "DeLon--TRADITIONAL COUNTRY", which can also be found at the https://www.tradebit.com site.

DeLon is very much into physical fitness, working out at a gym 5-6 times per week and playing on a fast-pitch baseball team several times per week. They refer to the much younger stars in Nashville as the "flat bellies" and DeLon certainly belongs in this group, even with the difference in ages.

The music he writes is going to reflect story songs, love songs, feel-good songs and songs to make you think and make a decision as to where you stand on certain social issues. He has spent the summer of 2004, writing new music in preparation for another country album and his first-ever Christian/Gospel country album. DeLon has said, "whatever happens in the future, I will not deviate from what I do, nor will I join the Nashville style of contemporary, pop/rock country music, when writing new songs. I know this, and that is I will always keep trying to be "KEEPIN'' IT COUNTRY"!!!

DeLon wishes to thank the many, many fans, who are supporting his music career by buying his CD albums. In addition, he wants to say thank you to the country music radio DJ''s from all over the world, who choose to play his music on their programs and make it available to their respective listening audiences. This wide-spread support is genuinely appreciated by him and makes it possible for him to keep bringing out more new music in the future.

DeLon has two major goals: he would like to be able to perform live on the famous Grand Ole Opry stage in Nashville, TN; and he is looking forward to being able to travel overseas to perform in concert, in the many countries, which are playing his music on their country music radio stations. At the present time, he is working with a couple of promoters, hoping to be able to achieve the appearances overseas in 2005 or 2006 at the latest.

For all of his fans overseas, he hopes to see you soon, in person.

DeLon continues to make personal appearances in many different venues including: casinos, hotels, resorts, corporate events, charitable events, rodeos and RV resorts.

He loves the sounds of "TRADITIONAL COUNTRY MUSIC" and wants you to enjoy this album, as well as his debut album, knowing that those sounds are what you will hear, when you purchase an album, which he has recorded.
