AC Thomas – “Man Of Constant Sorrow”

Birmingham, Alabama duo AC Thomas premiered their music video for “Man Of Constant Sorrow” earlier this week. The new release, a remake of the hit single from the 2000 film O Brother, Where Art Thou?  puts a new spin on the Grammy winning song. “We have always loved the movie ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou?,’ and connected with the lyrics of  ‘Man of Constant Sorrow,’ a track that is featured in the film. We wanted to release our own take on the track with an urban spin and it is now serving as the focal track for our debut EP,” explained the duo. Directed by Stokes Nielsen, the clip features the duo driving down back roads with the law hot on their heels. The new video also compliments the release of their debut EP, Paradox produced by Sean Giovanni and distributed by Intercept Music.

Stephanie Urbina Jones and the Honky Tonk Mariachis – “Jolene”

Stephanie Urbina Jones is back with a great new video, a latin mariachi take on the classic Dolly Parton song “Jolene.” The San Antonio, TX native remains in touch with her Mexican roots in her music often releasing new music in both English and Spanish. The new single and video is from her latest album Tularosa which combines classic country hits with mariachi rhythms. In addition to covering Dolly Parton, the album honors many of her favorite country icons including Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Hank Williams, and more. The mariachi element goes along with her Mexican heritage creating what her late grandmother called “country music with chili peppers.” Stephanie also has an amazing track record of top charting singles on the Texas music charts. Her single, “Shakin’ Things Up” made history when she became the first female artist to have a a single hold the #1 spot on the Texas Music Chart for 5 weeks in a row. Since then she has had 5 more singles chart Top 30 singles on the Texas charts. The new video follows Stephanie and her mariachi band as they walk through Nashville’s Honky Tonk district and perform at the iconic, Robert’s Western World on Broadway. “Having been cheated on, I have lived the desperation of that song,” she says. “When we gave it this new feel, it came alive and felt even more like a telenovela — and more true to song’s intention.”

Caroline Jones – “Chasin’ Me”
 
Caroline Jones has released her latest music video “Chasin’ Me.” The new video is a continuation of the storyline introduced in “The Difference,”and opens with a recap of the cross-country car chase that ignited a love story between Jones and co-star Cody Walker (brother of late Fast & Furious star Paul Walker.) The tone of part-2 is set as the video transitions from a fast-paced pop-country rhythm into a slower, wistful sound. Jones’ guarded walls begin to chip away as her persistent suitor follows her through Utah’s Zion National Park and ultimately to the coastal surf-town of Big Sur. From sunrise in Key West to sunset on the West Coast, the 2-part series ends as the co-stars embrace, proving that all things come in good time. Jones is also set to spend much of this year on tour opening for Kenny Chesney on his Song for the Saints Tour. In the the past she has shared the stage with acts including Zac Brown Band, Jimmy Buffet, the Eagles, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, and Vince Gill. In an interview with Billboard.com she cites Zac Brown and Jimmy Buffett personal mentors she hopes to pattern her career after. “I really owe my success thus far to them. I watch them lead by example — their bands, their crews, and their fans all share their values and understand the message and significance of the music. It’s an honor to play a small role in tours that uplift, inspire and bring joy to literally millions of people.”

CoCo O’Connor – “The Devil, A Wounded Man, And Me”

Singer-songwriter Coco O’Connor has just released the new music video for her International Acoustic Music Awards (IAMA) winning song, “The Devil, A Wounded Man, and Me.” The new single from her latest album This Ol’ War was awarded First Prize in the Country/Bluegrass category at the 15th annual awards ceremony. O’Connor has also recently signed with Bonfire Recording Co. and is working on releasing a full-length follow up to This Ol’ War later this year. The self proclaimed “music city outsider” continues to explore innovative forms of songwriting that mimics the careful, smooth-like honey process of country and blues long past. “The Devil, A Wounded Man, and Me” has that same old-school traditional sound that O’Connor has crafted by bucking the conventional sharp songwriter outlines that rule the fast-paced bustling Nashville music empire.

QUEEVA – “How Do You Know”

Rising artist, QUEEVA has released her latest music video “How Do You Know.”  The new clip, which premiered on CMT.com yesterday, is about young love and the judgements, trials, and tribulations that come along with falling in love at a young age. Co-written by Queeva and hit songwriting duo Jamie O’Neal and Shaye Smith, the song is something both young and older audiences can relate to. The video takes a twist near the end when it is revealed the young love is actually between a girl and her newly adopted puppy instead of the cliche teen romance implied in the beginning. A devoted animal lover, QUEEVA focused the video on pet rescues and animal adoption centers featuring two local pet retail shops in Nashville: Happy ReTales and Preppy Pets. The new release is a follow up to QUEEVA’s latest single, “Stand Out” which was added to Spotify’s Wild Country playlist with the corresponding video also playing on CMT.com. QUEEVA also continues to tour the country performing at music festivals. She has been featured on Nick Music’s Fresh Faces and has also landed national TV spots, appearing in a Build-a-Bear commercial and even had a role in an episode of “Chicago Fire.”
