Building on the release of his solo debut with catchy Top 20 hit “Trailer Hitch,” Bush’s new single “Light Me Up” is an anthemic love song that has already been spotlighted as a favorite track on APPLE MUSIC, PEOPLE, ETONLINE, and BILLBOARD.COM. The stunning lyric video featuring real couples in love can be viewed HERE.
Both songs are featured on Bush’s debut solo album SOUTHERN GRAVITY, which COUNTRY WEEKLYnamed the “feel-good album of the year.” It received rave reviews across the board, including THE BOSTON GLOBE, ROLLING STONE, USA TODAY, and THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD.
The GRAMMY-winning recording artist has been leaving his mark on music for more than two decades. The singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist started his career with folk-rock duo Billy Pilgrim in the early ‘90s; in 2004, he exploded onto the country music scene with Sugarland, surpassing sales of over 22 million albums worldwide, achieving five No. 1 singles and winning numerous awards, including GRAMMYs, AMAs, ACMs, CMT Music Awards and CMAs. To date, Bush has garnered six BMI Awards for his songwriting, and in 2011 he founded the music publishing company and songwriting collective Songs of the Architect. Recent collaborations include Laura Bell Bundy, Larkin Poe, Dan Tyminski, Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale and more. Bush is currently serving as a celebrity ambassador for Goodwill Industries International, with “Trailer Hitch” featured as the centerpiece of their #GiveItAway campaign.
