A distraught young woman, given a second chance. A mysterious funeral dated back in 1995. A present day heated altercation in a garage. An angry young man taking out his frustrations on a classic car with a bat. Sound like you’re watching the latest series on prime time? Is this by David Lynch?
That was all part of Eric Church‘s video “San Destino Rising: Movimiento De Una” which, set up his latest video “A Man Who Was Gonna Die Young.” All the players are back, moving the storyline along, this time with Eric singing solemnly interspersed. This unique way of sharing the stories he tells in song on his album The Outsiders is a great way of getting fans involved in them. Says Eric:
“I love mysteries. That’s kind of where this whole video thing, when we started this teaser thing, we already had the concept for what these videos were gonna be. And we wanted it to be this big mystery, level of intrigue, that just was fun for fans that we could have this thing of trying to figure it out and looking at where clues were.”
Fans are encouraged, as the videos are released, to pay attention to the clues and characters that Eric and his team are laying down. After all, don’t we all want to know whose funeral is going on on the roadside?
“All the characters that are in that, light will be shed on them as we go through this single process and video process. Throughout this entire album, that storyline will continue to play out and the ending is quite remarkable. We’ll get to that one day.”
We are definitely looking forward to it!

We all know that Kip Moore had a big year in 2013, but expect him to make an even bigger name for himself in 2014. I personally just cannot get enough of his raspy yet smooth vocals; he’s one of my new favorite country voices.
After great success with “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck,” “Beer Money” and “Hey Pretty Girl,” the ACM “New Artist of the Year” finalist recently released his latest single, “Young Love.”
With the song currently climbing the charts, CMT and iHeartRadio premiered the music video yesterday.
Check it out below:
You take Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert, give them a duet, and you get a dream collaboration.
Written by Nicolle Galyon, Jimmy Robbins, and Jon Nite, “We Were Us” is one of the best songs out right now and we love it.
The duet seems to be years in the making. Lambert opened for Urban on his tour back in 2005 when she was just starting out. Since then, Urban has been waiting for the perfect song to sing with Lambert. “We Were Us” was it.
“When I heard ‘We Were Us,’ it was instant,” Urban told People magazine. “I had two thoughts. The first [was] ”This is that song’ and the second – ‘Man, I sure hope she says yes!’ ”
The “We Were Us” music video premiered on Friday evening via Urban’s Facebook page. The video was filmed in front of a live audience at Edna’s neighborhood bar in Oklahoma City. Check it out below!
The Voice Season 4 champion and Big Machine recording artist, Danielle Bradbery, has released her first music video for her debut single, “The Heart of Dixie!”
The video was directed by Shane Drake and shot at Butterfly Hollow outside of Nashville. Bradbery’s best friends were on sight to co-star in her debut.
Danielle shared: “Shooting my first music video was an incredible experience. It matches perfectly the storytelling in the song. I can’t wait for everyone to see it!”
The rising star’s first studio album is due out in November.
Bradbery stole the hearts of America last spring as part of Team Blake on The Voice. Not only did Bradbery take home the title, she also sold the most iTunes downloads in the show’s history and was the youngest contestant ever to win.
We expect to see continued success from the seventeen-year-old country powerhouse!

If you haven’t heard of Maggie Sajak yet, it’s time we introduce you to the rising pop-country star. She recently released the music video for “Wild Boy,” the follow up single to her debut, “First Kiss.”
The track and video reflect Maggie’s growth, as both an artist and a person. “For better or worse, most of us girls have had a wild boy in our life, and we’ve had to decide when to put our hearts on the line,” says Sajak.
The video is a reflection on personal experiences, a collaboration of top photographers, directors, stylists and artists, whose artistic interpretation of the song led to an honest and refreshing video. “It was such an honor to work with so many creative minds when filming. The directors wanted to create an open environment where we could all work together to organically craft a video that truly embodied the song, and we were able to do just that.”
Love the song? You can purchase it on iTunes now!
Kelly Clarkson is getting married, y’all, and she wants the world to “Tie It Up” right along with her.

The video features Kelly in the role of wedding singer extraordinaire (who just happens to flash that giant sparkler a few times), mixed with wedding videos and fan photos.
Now, it’s time to kick off your shoes, grab a beverage and join her in this adorable celebration of wedding day bliss.
