Stacy's Music Row Report

HELEN CORNELIUS' fans, concerned that neither Helen's official website nor her official Facebook page have been updated in over a decade, are, according to ICEBERG-FAQ 21, sadly learning  that Cornelius, turning 82 on December 6, 2023, is "seriously ill."

The 'Berg reports that Helen is "in the final stages of Parkinson's Disease." 

As JIM ED BROWN's publicist I got to know Helen fairly well, but that was after my time repping Brown at Top Billing.  So, no, I was never Helen's publicist.

Sure and begorrah!  Thanks to DAN BLAKESLEE Stacy's Music Row Report is somewhat of a big deal in Ireland!

GEORGE STRAIT fans will want to know that, following a Forex.com-commissioned analysis of celebrities' investments  (including business ventures, intellectual property, luxury properties, financial instruments and collectibles), Strait ranks ninth among the top ten entertainers found to be "the most money-savvy... music artists" generating "the highest returns on their net worth."


With an estimated worth of $310 million, George is thought to earn $3 million/month based on "real estate, luxury vehicles and ownership investments."  If true, Strait enjoys an 11.6% return on his net worth. 
from an FB, (and reportedly closer) friend and Grand Ole Opry member (whose name I am withholding)

I won't tell you how that ROI compares with my own, except to confirm that this published estimate is laughably way off (hence, no doubt the disclaimers).

"Come celebrate GEORGE JONES' birthday with NANCY JONES.

"You are invited to a private gathering at Nancy Jones' home." 

So read the invitation from JEREMY WESTBY and SCOTT SEXTON.  The September 11, 2023 afternoon gathering in Franklin, Tennessee,  a day before what would have been George's 92nd birthday.


I had been a media guest at the Jones' former Nestledown Farms home but, while Nancy remains a Williamson County resident, George's widow has relocated since then.


Invitees who journeyed to the Cool Springs area received a gate code for the 2023 posthumous birthday celebration where those present were given the opportunity to preview clips from Still Playin' Possum, the Fathom Events all-star concert tribute to George premiering in theaters October 17, 2023.



 "Nancy will also have copies her new book, Playin' Possum: My Memories of George Jones for attendees."
 
 KEN ABRAHAM is Nancy' s ghostwriter.  Look for a review here soon.

As an ASCAP songwriter (CONNIE BRADLEY is spinning in her grave), I always want to share the wealth.

Want to be a part of collecting on the relaunch of KANE BROWN's
Grand with a Life of Rights investment term?

Consider that the song has already racked over 28.5 million Spotify streams as well as nearly 30 million Pandora streams and that these streams and other public performances have chalked up $27,131 earnings over the first three quarters- with 65% of the earnings attributed to streaming and radio airplay.

Further, Brown is wrapping up his 2023 tour that has featured Grand on Kane's set list for every show.  (BMI has yet to pay out for U.S. dates.  These will be payable to the buyer.)
