This has been one action-packed summer for Melissa Etheridge -- she's already a month into an extended world tour (check your local listings for a concert near you) and it was recently announced that she's been tapped to perform at the Marconi Radio Awards Dinner & Show at the 2012 Radio Show produced by the NAB and the RAB. Her appearance is scheduled for Thursday, September 20 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, and is sponsored by St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

"Melissa Etheridge is an extraordinary artist who's sure to deliver an unforgettable performance at this year’s Marconis," said NAB EVP of Radio John David. "We look forward to hearing her perform classic hits as well as songs from her highly anticipated new album."

Ah, yes, the new album -- Melissa's forthcoming Island Records album, 4th Street Feeling is set for release on Tuesday, September 4. The album's first single, "Falling Up" recently debuted on RollingStone.com and is available on iTunes starting today.

And Ms. Etheridge is not planning to take any time off in the foreseeable future -- she continues to host her successful Melissa Etheridge Radio Show, syndicated through Benztown Radio Networks, plus she's preparing to be honored by the National Women's Museum of Art in Washington as part of the new exhibition,

"Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power," organized by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. The exhibit starts on Friday, September 7 and runs through January 6, 2013.

Pre-sale for Melissa's new album (4th Street Feeling) starts Aug 7, 2012

Melissa's latest studio album will be available for pre-order and the first single, “Falling Up” will be available for sale beginning on Tuesday, August 7. The album will be released September 4th by Island Records.

Recorded in Los Angeles at HOB Studios, the album was produced by Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Norah Jones) and Steve Booker (Duffy), and co-produced by Melissa. Melissa wrote twelve new songs for the album, which features Blair Sinta on drums, Brett Simons on bass, Zac Rae on keyboards. Melissa takes the lead on vocals, piano, harmonica, banjitar and some of her most stirring lead guitar work to date.

Still my favorite....
