So my two favorite music acts team up to produce one of the hottest videos I have seen in a long time. The song co-written by Kirstie Lovelady and James Ford, from Them Dirty Roses, is proof once again, these musicians, are doing things on their own terms, in their own way. Two unknown singers, team up to release a hot new video… “No one does that!” A female, trying to break into country music shoots a video in a boxing ring because that is how she sees the video…. “No one does that!” Well whoever “no one” is has never met Kirstie Lovelady and Them Dirty Roses. Just as the song’s message is about doing things, your way, not the way everyone else does it, this video follows that message.
When I talked to Kirstie yesterday, I told her “No one has done it this way, because they have been waiting on YOU to do it”. This video was shot at GetFit615 and Music City Boxing and the locations could not tell the story any better than Kirstie and James do in the song writing. The guys were lucky to have the video directed by Preston Leatherman who took the vision and brought it to life.
I cannot say enough good things about the first cut “Head On” from Kirstie Lovelady’s new EP “Weeds”. The video is a clear portrayal of the fight to be your own artist, in your own way, in your own time, and feeling that strong about being you and not someone who the industry expects.
I hope that CMT and GAC will pick the video up and give their viewers the opportunity to see what a total badass, rocking lady looks like and how awesome Them Dirty Roses are and the void they will in fill in music today.
Give it a listen, call your radio stations, and music channels and let’s get this some airplay. I love they did this their way.
