Bush single goes for adds
Thursday, July 24, 2014
– Kristian Bush's first single as a solo artist, "Trailer Hitch," goes for adds July 28.
Bush, one-half of Sugarland, released the song in June on Streamsound Records. Bush put out the song after two years of songwriting and more than 300 songs. Executive producer Byron Gallimore, best known for his work with Tim McGraw, Sugarland and Faith Hill, was behind the release as well. Gallimore launched the label in 2012.
"My passion is creating and performing music. I love making records, and creating my first solo album has been one of my most joyous experiences to date. I know it's just the beginning. I am committed and determined to share my new music with as many people as I can reach," said Bush.
Bush recorded the playful, summertime vibe video for the song on the streets of Chicago on June 27. In the video, he is shown busking during the day in downtown Chicago, but instead of asking for contributions, he gives away money from his guitar case.
Bush wrote the song in one afternoon with his co-writer Tim Owens and brother Brandon Bush.
Bush has 10 solo shows this summer throughout the U.S. going through Sept. 19 in Raleigh, N.C.
Jennifer Nettles, Bush's counterpart in Sugarland, released her solo disc last year and has been touring behind it.

These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Combs, Gill, Harris, Crow comprise one final musical platter

Gill joked from the outset that this All for the Hall fundraising show needed Combs to sell tickets, and by the audience's response, it was clear many came only to see Combs.... »»»
Concert Review: Stapleton shows his traditional roots
Chris Stapleton's All-American Road show feels like a singular mission to rid the genre of the bro country scourge that has plagued it for years. He came out with a blazing one-two punch of "Second One To Know" and "Without Your Love" and packed a stadium sized onslaught into a 9,000-seat arena. He never once veered from his... »»»
