Olsen looks for "Good Time"

Thursday, March 19, 2015 – Steven Lee Olsen today premiered his music video for his song, "Raised By A Good Time," on Rolling Stone Country.

The video for the co-penned autobiographical anthem was directed by Mason Dixon.

"'Raised By A Good Time' is a song I wrote a few years back with one of my best friends, Cary Barlowe," Olsen said. "I think everyone has those memories from growing up where you and your friends were out, carefree, maybe past curfew, feeling like you were all getting away with stuff and just being young. I really look at those days as moments that helped shape who I ultimately became, and I wanted the video to reflect the spirit of that."

Signed to Sony Music Nashville in 2014, Olsen co-penned "Cold Like That" off of Garth Brooks' "Man Against Machine."

Olsen has enjoyed 2 top 20 hits on Canadian radio, as well as nominations for a Canadian Radio Music Award for his single, "Now" and his single "Make Hay While The Sun Shines."

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... »»»
