Hunter Hayes Premieres New Video for “Tattoo”

Hunter Hayes

Multi-talented and multi-platinum recording artist Hunter Hayes is entering a new dimension with the fresh music video for his current single, “Tattoo,” premiering worldwide across CMT platforms and on more than 120 Clear Channel country station websites, along with the newly launched CMT Artists App for iPhone and Android today, July 28. Directed by Kristen Barlowe, the street-art-inspired piece brings “Tattoo” to life with animated graphics, graffiti art and of course, a beautiful brunette who plays the muse to Hayes’ energetic performance.

“With a song like ‘Tattoo,’ it’s a very visual thing,” Hayes told PEOPLE Country. “Lyrically, the goal is to bring you to a place where all these artistic elements of inspiration come to life around you. So, for the video, rather than just explain how a relationship can inspire you, we wanted to go beyond the expected and make a musically inspired moment jump out of a two-dimensional space.”

Written by Hayes and fellow Nashville songsmiths Barry Dean and Troy Verges, “Tattoo” is the second single off of Hayes’ chart-topping sophomore album, Storyline. Previous hits for the four-time GRAMMY nominee include the consecutive No. 1 smashes “Wanted,” “Somebody’s Heartbreak” and “I Want Crazy,” as well as Storyline’s moving lead single, “Invisible.”

Hayes just completed the international leg of his promotional tour for Storyline and is currently headlining dates across the U.S. and Canada. For more information, visit or connect on Twitter and Facebook @HunterHayes.

Big & Rich Breaking New Ground with Historic New Album Release

Big and Rich

Country superstars Big & Rich, Big Kenny and John Rich, are celebrating 10 years of hit music making with their highly-anticipated new album, Gravity.   It’s the multi-platinum selling duo’s fifth studio album and is set to launch on September 23, 2014.  Big & Rich’s lead-off single for the project, “Look at You” has already proven a chart-climbing success.  Their first studio album, Horse of a Different Color, was released by Warner Bros. in 2004, producing four straight hits, including the iconic “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy).”   Other accolades include being first-rate songwriters, producers and musicians with a roster of collaborations and hits produced or penned for various artists including Jason Aldean, Gretchen Wilson, James Otto, Martina McBride, Faith Hill, Merle Haggard, Bon Jovi, John Anderson, Willie Nelson, Jewel, Keith Anderson, Hank Williams, Jr., John Legend, Wyclef Jean, Tim McGraw, Ky-Mani Marley and Cowboy Troy.

In addition to the latest recording project, the larger-than-life duo has formed its own label, Big & Rich Records, a partnership with Kobalt Label Services.  Big Kenny describes the business venture and forthcoming CD as a platform for gaining creative control of their trailblazing musical legacy.

“This is an exciting and intense time in the history of Big and Rich.  We continue to embrace all the change that happens in our business of entertainment.  As artists, we are now at the place where we can finally gain complete creative control.  That’s huge.  It allows us to be true to ourselves and be the trailblazers we’ve always risked being. We want to be important to Country music.  It’s important to Big and Rich. It is our musical legacy.  Our new album title is perfect.  Big and Rich can now really feel the Gravity.  We are counting our blessings,” he says.

John Rich adds, “We couldn’t be happier with how the fans and radio are responding to our new music!  To take on the challenge of being your own label and slugging it out with the majors is a gambler’s move, but BK and I are happy to just let it all ride.”

Big & Rich are generating rave reviews for the summer leg of their 2014 concert tour with shows spanning across the U.S. and Canada.  Cities among upcoming stops for the tour include Orlando, Grand Rapids, Spokane, Hampton, Panama City and more.

Brad Paisley Leaking Moonshine in the Trunk Against Labels Wishes

brad paisley

Brad Paisley has gone rogue!!!!!!! On Saturday (July 26) Brad took to his Twitter page to leak a short YouTube video of clips of  each song from his forthcoming Moonshine in the Trunk album.

“I’m going rogue,” Brad wrote in his first of many tweets Saturday night. “The label doesn’t know I’m doing this. Seriously. But I made a Moonshine Preview teaser. Don’t tell. Better listen to this while you can. I bet the label tries to pull it down. Clock’s ticking.”

Brad was right!  His label, Sony Music Nashville, shut Brad down quickly making the video private and sending him emails pleading with him to stop.    Not to be out down Brad posted the email exchange along with very funny captions.

“Hurry up and Listen,” he wrote. “I’m going to detention. Breakfast club!!! Here I come.”

Brad made sure his fans knew that he certainly loves his label folks but admitted to loving his fans even more by saying,

I really do love my record label.Especially for puttin’up with my $h@t. But I love ya’ll even more. Ha! Priorities.


It looks like Brad’s label has given up the chase.  His most recent preview video is still ONLINE!  Listen below:

And don’t worry Brad Paisley fans. It doesn’t seem like Brad is going to stop just because he won the battle.

He revealed that a 3rd clip is ready to go!

“The 3rd clip is ready to upload. Ha! Gotta get up pretty early in the morning to beat ole BP. Sometimes I feel for those vicariously responsible for my actions. Victory! Wow this was hilarious. Can’t believe I just had this exchange. Really funny.”

As Brad wrapped up his tweets to head on stage for his show, Brad left fans with one more teaser.

“Wonder if I can get away with that with an entire song….” he wrote. “Someone just asked if the label really didn’t know I was gonna post this clip tonight. They really& truly didn’t know. Y’all should be ready tomorrow night cause I may just leak somethin’else during @RisingStarABC -til then,BP-1 suits-0.”

And that teaser turned into a reality this morning when Brad sent Bobby Bones his remix of  ‘River Bank’ featuring Colt Ford.
Take a listen before it gets taken down to:

Brad’s Moonshine in the Trunk album is set to hit stores on August 26.
