Filmore visits "London"

Friday, November 22, 2019 – Filmore is out with a new song, "London," the first of several new releases coming soon from the Curb Records recording artist.

Filmore is also set to join Lauren Alaina for her That Girl Was Me Tour, which kicks off at Nashville's famed Exit/In on Jan. 15, 2020.

"As I continue to put out new music, I want to share more of both who I am as an artist as well as my personal experiences with fans," said Filmore. "This song felt like the perfect place to start sharing the state I'm in. I first visited London for only 12 hours around this same time years ago, and that trip helped inspire the song."

Written by Filmore and John Luke Carter and produced by Zach Abend and Carter, the up-tempo, heartbreak song chronicles the hurt a breakup can create while visiting a place you'd planned to be experience together.

Lyrics include:
I feel so helpless, and I feel so far away
If you knew where I was, I wonder what you'd say
I feel guilty, and I don't know how to tell you
I saw London without you

"'London' is about visiting a new city alone that you had always planned on seeing with someone special," said the Wildwood, Mo.-native. "All the details in the song relate to missing an ex with the hope of one day coming back to share it all with one another."

Directed by Dusty Barker, the music video for "London" was shot during a 48-hour trip to the city that inspired it. "With my tour schedule, it was a crazy quick trip," Filmore said. "We visited every spot I mention in the song along with some places I've always wanted to see. We walked about eight miles a day, but it was so cool to go back after writing the song and relive those moments."

Filmore will return to London next year as part of C2C Country to Country which will include performances at O2 Arena. Additional European dates for C2C will be announced soon. He expects to release an album in 2020.

Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. 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: For Brooks and fans, a most unusual change of pace – To say that this was a change of pace for Garth Brooks - not to mention his fans - would be an understatement of the highest degree. Brooks all but begged during the show to be playing next door at Gillette Stadium where the New England Patriots play. But, alas, Brooks exuded joy and excitement at the chance to play before about 500 people at a club,... »»»
Concert Review: LBT proves more than capable – If you have seen Little Big Town in the last decade, it could have been anywhere from a B stage at a Rib Fest to a 20,000-seat amphitheater as the opener for some of country's top acts. Their current "Nightfall" tour rightfully proves they are more than capable and well deserved being billed as a top headlining act.... »»»
