NASHVILLE, TENN. (May 1, 2017) – Larger-than-life duo Big & Rich unveiled their new video for their latest single “California” on HitsMeUp, a digital platform for fans to interact and engage with artists (watch HERE).
“California” is already generating buzz and moving up the charts! The “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)” singers are also stepping up their promotional efforts with a hilarious infomercial inviting fans to listen and download the single. In true Big & Rich style, they joke that fans can purchase “California” right now on iTunes for 5 easy payments of $0.252! CLICK HERE to watch.
“California” will also be promoted by HitsMeUp in over 100 major cable markets in a series of commercials highlighting the new video. “California” is the lead single from Big & Rich’s upcoming album, Did It For The Party, slated for a third quarter release. Fans can catch the hit makers on tour this summer as they embark on their 2017 Did It For The Party Tour. Throughout the year, the must-see show will make stops throughout North America, stopping at venues and festivals nationwide.
Shot on location in Nashville, Tenn. and directed by P.R. Brown, the video spotlights a young woman and her journey to California. The partnership between Big & Rich and HitsMeUp was a natural fit because HitsMeUp recognized the “value gap” that exists due to the current, antiquated monetary distribution system. For this reason, HitsMeUp distributes a significantly higher revenue share with artists and content owners.
