Video Premiere: Kip Moore, “Young Love”

Kip Moore

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.

It’s no secret to anyone that we here at Keepin’ It Country are super fans of the sometimes-pop/ sometimes-country/ always-awesome, Kelly Clarkson. Today, she released the video for “Catch My Breath,” the first single off of her Greatest Hits – Chapter One, due out on November 19th. While the clip isn’t exactly riveting in terms of storyline, KC looks STUNNING and the song is just as catchy on my 545th listen.

Carrie Underwood to Release “Blown Away” as Next Single

carrie_underwood300

Carrie Underwood has consistently blown fans away with her new hit album, Blown Away, and will be releasing the album’s title track as her next single. The song will officially impact country radio on July 9, but has already become a fan-favorite, due  to Carrie’s performances of the song on national television. It was penned by Josh Kear and Chris Tompkins, who also wrote Underwood’s smash “Before He Cheats.”

Aside from being a favorite amongst fans, “Blown Away” has received rave reviews from critics. Billboard writes, “Mark Bright’s brooding, atmospheric production and Underwood’s bold performance elevate this cinematic tune to an instant classic. When the girl shuts herself in the storm cellar, leaving her alcoholic father passed out on the couch in the path of a twister, you can almost feel the wind.”

Additionally, Carrie’s record label, Arista Nashville, will be promoting the new video in a unique way, by offering country radio the chance to win a Private World Premiere of the “Blown Away” music video. The prize will include a “red carpet” event for the station’s listeners, including an appearance by Underwood.

The video was directed by Randee St. Nicholas and produced by Brandon Bonfiglio. It is sure to wow fans, and the trailer can be viewed at: http://smarturl.it/blownawaytrailer.

Jerrod Niemann to Premiere New Music Video “Shinin’ On Me” This Monday

Jerrod-Niemann-CountryMusicIsLove

Jerrod Niemann may currently be a special guest on Miranda Lambert‘s On Fire Tour, but his career is also very much on fire these days. His current single “Shinin’ On Me” is the perfect summer anthem, and it’s currently climbing the country radio charts. In conjunction with its rapid ascent up the charts comes the premiere of its video exclusively on AOL’S TheBoot.com on Monday, May 21st. Shortly after it’s premiere, the video will also be added into rotation on GAC, CMT and VEVO and all other streaming partners.

The video, directed by Chris Hicky, mixes raucous partying, an overworked businessman, performances shots and an ending that you’ll just have to tune in to see.

“Shinin’ on Me” is the first single from Jerrod’s upcoming sophomore album, which comes on the heels of his #1 Country Album “Judge Jerrod & the Hung Jury.” Niemann promises that this first single is just a taste of that fans can expect on the upcoming album that he is co-producing with Dave Brainard.

On this album, Niemann hopes to flex his creative muscles, creating a unique sound that mixes classic country with a sound that’s distinctly his. “I feel like making an album with horns is definitely a risky step, but my favorite thing about it is that it gives my listeners a taste of something unique,” Niemann says. “I have been watching people react to my music out on the road for years, and because I have the feeling that people are actually listening, it makes me more inspired to become a better musician, producer, songwriter, artist and really give them something different, and a sound that I love.”

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.
