Trainor is nominated for “Favorite New Artist” and “Song of the Year” for “All About That Bass” at 2015 Kids’ Choice Awards, airing March 28 on Nickelodeon. The next day Sunday, March 29, she will perform at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles, broadcasted live on NBC from the Shrine Auditorium. At the ceremony, she’s also nominated in three top categories including “Best New Artist,” “Renegade,” and “Song of the Year” for “All About That Bass.”
Meghan’s two-time Grammy-nominated debut single, “All About That Bass,” spent eight weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and has been certified six-times RIAA platinum in the U.S. alone. The song has worked its way into pop culture with numerous cover versions and homages, including NBC’s Saturday Night Live and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon (with collective YouTube views of more than 40 million).
Globally, “All About That Bass” has hit number one in 58 countries, generated more than 10 million downloads, over 275 million streams, and nearly 700 million YouTube views to date. The follow-up single “Lips Are Movin” has been certified RIAA double platinum, has reached the top five on the Billboard Hot 100, top five at top 40 radio, and has over 180 million video views.
For over four decades, Boston has been a staple of classic rock music, selling over 30 million albums worldwide. Centered on guitarist, keyboardist, songwriter and producer Tom Scholz, the band is best known for the songs “More Than A Feeling,” “Rock And Roll Band,” “Don’t Look Back,” and “Amanda”.
Boston’s new studio album “Life, Love and Hope” was released in December of 2014 and is now available everywhere. Tom Scholz says, “These songs are from the heart, each of them taking many months of effort to write, arrange, perform and record, always up to the demands of Boston’s harshest critic, me.”
The 2015 California Mid-State Fair runs July 22 through August 2.
