Catch Hayes’ street-art-inspired music video on newly launched CMT Artists App and CMT.com
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 28, 2014) – Multi-talented and multi-platinum recording artist Hunter Hayes is entering a new dimension with the fresh music video for his current single, “Tattoo,” premiering worldwide across CMT platforms and on more than 120 Clear Channel country station websites, along with the newly launched CMT Artists App for iPhone and Android today, July 28. Directed by Kristen Barlowe, the street-art-inspired piece brings “Tattoo” to life with animated graphics, graffiti art and of course, a beautiful brunette who plays the muse to Hayes’ energetic performance.
“With a song like 'Tattoo,' it's a very visual thing," Hayes told PEOPLE Country. "Lyrically, the goal is to bring you to a place where all these artistic elements of inspiration come to life around you. So, for the video, rather than just explain how a relationship can inspire you, we wanted to go beyond the expected and make a musically inspired moment jump out of a two-dimensional space."

Pre-orders for Ignite the Night propel new album to No. 1 on iTunes Country Albums ahead of August 19 release date
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 24, 2014) – Ignite the Night is proving to be a fitting title for country music star Chase Rice’s forthcoming album, as it rocketed to the top of the iTunes Country Albums chart this week thanks to strong pre-order sales. Releasing August 19 on Columbia Nashville/Dack Janiels, Ignite the Night was produced by Chris DeStefano and features 15 tracks including the Gold-certified, hit lead single “Ready Set Roll,” which Rice will perform Wednesday, August 6 when he makes his late-night debut on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers.
“I can’t thank the fans enough for sticking by me, coming out to the shows night after night and buying my music,” said Rice. “The fact that ‘Ready Set Roll’ went Gold before it even hit the Top 20 and now Ignite the Night is already blowing up on iTunes means we must be doing something right, and I can’t wait to give them all I’ve got with this new album.”
