I promised everyone more country, and I am delivering. But you thought I meant Nashville, didn't you.? We we had Nashville well represented last week with Sarah Love and the week before with Mindy Smith. This week we are giong north to Canada to interview Amy Rose. Part down-home country girl, part sophisticated musical veteran and “Redneck Diva,” Amy has already earned a reputation for being one of Canada’s best-known country music exports. From her early years on small-town fair and festival stages, to her recent radio airplay, charting and awards, Amy Rose’s soaring vocal range and pop country sensibilities has garnered high praise and international airplay for “I just Want You to Know” – which reached #9 on the New Weekly country chart, and “Party Like a Redneck”, which hit #6. She has received a 2013 Ontario Country Music Association nomination for “Rising Star” and was named Country Music Entertainer of the Year by the International Music and Entertainment Association.
This Friday, she is announcing the world premiere of her new music video for her current radio single, “Sunshine” (Wild Rose Music/MTS.). The video will premiere Friday at 8 pm ET on Amy’s Youtube Channel and we will play the music from the video and talk to her live on air about its production and where she is going now. The video was shot in October, at the Jam Spot in Newmarket, Ontario, under the direction of Niloo Ravaei with Director of Photography and Executive Producer - and Amy’s husband -Jeff Fraser. The song “Sunshine” was released to US country radio this past September, and it is currently on several major airplay charts. The single will be re-released in Canada, after the New Year. The artwork video currently has 169,000 views on Youtube.
