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.

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: Rising Appalachia buck the mainsteam, and that's fine with them – Rising Appalachia would not be accused of being in the musical mainstream. Not too many bands who combine folk and Appalachian sounds with new world music could possibly be. And that suits the sister-led duo of Chloe Smith and Leah Song just fine. In fact, at one point, Chloe made it clear she did not embrace radio play as a sign of success... »»»
Concert Review: Bingham plays with something to prove – Ryan Bingham mainly focused on songs from his sixth album "American Love Song," for this lively show. Backed by a supportive band that also included two female backup singers and a fiddler, Bingham's eclectic setlist touched upon country, singer/songwriter folk, rock and blues. Bingham reached for lively country sounds early on, with... »»»
