Video Premiere: “Run” – Matt Nathanson Ft. Sugarland

Matt Nathanson & Sugarland

Singer-songwriter, Matt Nathanson, celebrated the world premiere of the music video for his single, “Run,” yesterday. The track features Sugarland with Jennifer Nettles lending her smooth vocals, and appears on Nathanson’s latest album, Modern Love.

Nathanson is currently on tour opening for Kelly Clarkson on the Stronger Tour, and is also out on the road for his All Night Noise Tour. I had the pleasure of seeing Nathanson perform on the Stronger Tour back in January. He is a very talented artist with excellent stage presence, and he also happens to be extremely funny. If you have seen him live, you probably understand the quick shot of the scrabble board in the new video for “Run.”

Meanwhile, country super duo, Sugarland, will be hitting the road in April for their In Your Hands Tour. In addition, Nettles will be one of the judges/mentors on ABC’s upcoming show, Duets, along with Clarkson, Lionel Richie, and Robin Thicke.

Video Picks Of The Week: March 13, 2012

Matt Nathanson & Ashley Arrison

Hi friends…

It’s time for our “Video Picks of the Week.”

Music Video

This week’s music video is Jack Ingram, “Lips Of An Angel.” The song was originally sung and made popular by the rock band, Hinder. Ingram later gave the song his own spin and earned himself a country hit with his version. The track served as the lead single off of his album, This is It. 

I have always enjoyed Ingram’s version and it introduced me to his music back in 2006.

Here is his website: http://www.jackingram.net/.

Top 10 Live Tracks (2000 – Now)

There’s nothing we here at Keepin’ It Country love more than live music, so it only made sense to put together a list of some of our favorite live tracks to share with you all, our lovely readers! This particular list is made up of only live tracks from 2000 – 2012, mostly because trying to go through the entire live history of country music turned out to be a bit daunting. Also, all tracks in consideration had to have been released commercially at some point, so no bootlegs here! (Though that could easily be another list.)

Now that the fine print is out of the way, check out our picks below!

10. Love & Theft – “Don’t Wake Me” – Live in Savannah EP

Love & Theft’s performance of “Don’t Wake Me,” off of the band’s Live in Savannah EP, highlights everything that’s great about the group. Three (now two) great looking guys singing perfect harmonies on killer pop-country songs. Any cut from this album could have made our list, but this was a personal favorite. The band gained certain notoriety when Taylor Swift wrote “Hey Stephen” about member Stephen Barker Liles, but if Love & Theft can keep their moment going with live shows like this one there’s a good chance they’ll give Rascal Flatts a run for their money in a few years.

9. Kenny Chesney – “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy – Live Those Songs Again

Kenny Chesney has long ruled the country music touring circuit; one of the few acts in any genre that can consistently sell out stadiums, so it should be no surprise that he made our list. “Tractor” is a reminder of exactly what makes Kenny so fun to see live. It’s a fun summertime party with the best soundtrack.

Check out the rest of the list after the jump!
