For Immediate Release:

Can Country Music Newcomer Michael Lee Austin Compete With Kenny Chesney?

Raleigh, NC – The question is this… can a virtually unknown country music artist, on a new label, compete head to head with country music superstar Kenny Chesney during his debut album release?

Chesney’s latest album due out November 8th “The Road & The Radio” and Austin’s debut album “Labor Pains” will both hit media outlets the same week.

When asked about this Austin had this to say… “I know it may seem like album suicide to release my first album the same week as Kenny Chesney, but we have built a pretty strong online fanbase and we are going against the grain a bit with our promotion. All I can really say is I hope that Kenny has a little compassion and sends some of those sales my way.”

Austin’s website (www.MichaelLeeAustin.com) has been literally giving away FREE fan club memberships from his website for the past few weeks and building a strong online presence.

Armand Morin, VP of Marketing for Alive Records, Austin’s label states… “We don’t really plan to market Michael in the traditional way as the major labels at first. Our initial game plan revolves around our strong point of online marketing. Yes, we’ll be in iTunes, Napster, Yahoo Music and others, but we will also be marketing directly through our website.”

Michael Lee Austin’s album “Labor Pains” due out the week of November 7th has been touted as a refreshing revival of a traditional country sound. Radio promoters all across the country are getting rave reviews from listeners and can’t play the title song “Labor Pains” enough.
