Available Now Exclusively on Rare Country

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Jan. 15, 2016) — Drake White has partnered with Rare Country for an exclusive premiere of the lyric video for his new Dot Records’ single “Livin’ The Dream.” Watch now here. Available through Vevo tomorrow (Jan. 16), the heartfelt video was directed by Matt Zervos and filmed on White’s farm in Nashville, Tenn.

“Livin’ The Dream” was penned by Tom Douglas, Jaren Johnson (of The Cadillac Three) and Luke Laird with Ross Copperman and Jeremy Stover sharing producer credits. All Access calls the track “a ready-made hit,” while One Stop Country raves it “elevates him to exciting new heights.” The video features White and his wife Alex spending time on their farm on the outskirts of Nashville as whimsical lyrics float on the screen: “Look at us with a picket fence / Don’t got a lot of money but we’re makin’ a dent / Old Ford truck with a dog in the back, now / Ain’t we livin’ the dream / Big blue sky, green, green grass / Ain’t doin’ half bad for a half full glass / Kiss me baby, yeah just like that, now / Ain’t we livin’ the dream”

“Livin’ The Dream” can mean a lot of different things,” said White about the song. “Check out our new lyric video and see what it means to me. Turn up the volume and keep the good vibes goin’!!”

White, who performs with his band The Big Fire, emulates more of a revival than a concert setting. Rolling Stone Country, who touted him as one of the Top 10 Country Artists to Watch, recently characterized his performance as “a growling, stomping spitfire, blasting his songs with bluesy energy that’s as infectious as his catchy choruses.”

The swampy singer/songwriter kicked off the new year as one of Huffington Post’s Top Country Artists to Watch in 2016 and is currently featured in the Nashville Lifestyles music issue. With performances at the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s “Stars for Wishes” benefit on Jan. 16 as well as Nashville Lifestyle’s annual Music in the City event on Jan. 27, White shows no signs of slowing down. White’s rock-infused, soulful country sound and signature foot-stomp previously earned him tours with Willie Nelson, Eric Church, Zac Brown Band and Little Big Town.

Thanks for taking a few seconds to read this. I have been with MTRS since its inception. Love doing the live broadcasts and interviewing my hero's and other very interesting people over the decade of this. MTR is my therapy. Have always looked at this site and station as being part of the solution for the artists. We have NEVER pushed our own agenda, it has always been in the name of the bands, the music and the direction in which we have an influence in helping. We are part of the solution. Its simple! We are here to help bands and entertainers succeed. We go way far beyond of what is expected of a station/PR piece.
