NASHVILLE, TENN. (December 1, 2011) – For nearly two decades Blair Garner has helped launch and further the careers of countless country music stars through his nightly syndicated radio show, “After MidNite.” Seven nights a week, millions of listeners in the U.S. and Canada enjoy Blair’s entertaining and surprisingly candid conversations with the format’s top stars. Now he’s releasing a first-ever type of musical compilation, BEYOND The Hits, taking fans beyond the hits they already know. BEYOND The Hits assembles 20 of country music’s biggest recording artists, featuring tracks from previously released albums; songs that might very well have been hits had they been released as singles. Sometimes you’ve got to go BEYOND.
BEYOND The Hits Volume 1 will be available on iTunes as a $9.99 digital album beginning January 10, 2012.

"The idea of having a charitable arm for the project is important for all of us,” Garner says. “You look at any artist on this record and you'll find that each and every one of them is a terrific role-model for the idea of giving back. We hope to follow their leads and make equally significant donations."
