Celebrity-Driven Headlines & Global News Premieres Country Newcomer Callie Twisselman's"Hung Me On The Line" Music Video
Nashville, TN (October 26, 2015) - Celebrity-driven Headlines & Global News premieres Country newcomer Callie Twisselman's new music video, "Hung Me On The Line,"today, as the young star begins a two week stint as guest host on the popular television show Country Fix through November 8.
The video concept centers on a classic Western theme with modern-day twists. Filmed primarily on the Twisselman family ranch in Cholame, California, additional locations include the Varian Ranch and Parkfield Café (Parkfield, CA), "Hung Me On The Line" features a saloon, horses, grasslands and loose women. A gunshot echoes at the close of the clip, which fades out with shots of Twisselman, playing the cowgirl, riding away. "Hung Me On The Line" is Callie's current single, following her recent Top 30 MusicRow CountryBreakout™ Chart hit, "Breathe."
Producer/Director Sam Schneider (Super Bowl, Thirty Seconds To Mars, Memphis May Fire) assumed acting duties as well. His appearances in the movies "Soldiers Horse," "David and Goliath" and the upcoming "Aquarius" served him well and his experience made for a powerful love interest-pairing with Twisselman, whose previous acting roles includes the movie, "Almost Salinas."
Acting, singing and songwriting aren't Twisselman's only talents: the young entertainer recently launched her own clothing line, Sassy Girl, and is wearing one of the label's signature white dresses in the video's opening scenes. "We're new, and so we're always adding new pieces," explains Callie. "Fall means wonderful neutral and earth tones - and I love fringe, so it's a real mix of stylish colors with a dash of fun." Sassy Girl features dresses, casual tank tops, blouses, vests and sweaters as well.
The busy blonde will enter 100 MILLION households this week via Country Fix; fans can catch Callie on DISH Network, Blue Highways TV, Heartland TV, Angel Two, The Family Channel and AMG. "There is so much going on right now," Twisselman admits. "To have my video debut on Headlines & Global News the same day that the Country Fix shows begin airing is just incredible. Folks are liking my music. I am thrilled, excited, over-the-moon happy."

Popular Country Newcomer Alexandra Demetree's Acoustic Music Video,"Outta My Head," Premieres Today On THE BOOT
"Delivering a passionate and aching vocal somewhere between LeAnn Rimes and Kelly Clarkson, Demetree fits right in with today's country radio." - Music News Miami
"She is an angelic songbird who has mastered her craft ... finding a gem like this is a rarity in any genre." - One Stop Country
Nashville, TN (October 22, 2015) -- Popular Country newcomer Alexandra Demetree's new acoustic music video, "Outta My Head,"premieres today on THE BOOT. Filmed at a vast, aged warehouse in Nashville's historic Germantown district, the video is stunning in its stark simplicity. Demetree's emotionally-charged vocal and the song's high-impact lyrics take center stage, while abundant natural daylight, a sense of space and timelessness play supporting roles. Producer/director Brian Harstine's (Dolly Parton, Ke$ha) minimalistic approach kept the camera focused on Demetree, three supporting musicians (Josh O'Keefe, Jason Roller and Jaran Sorenson), and a few quirky "abandoned" props
Alexandra Demetree "Outta My Head" video
"It was a very straightforward concept," explains Alexandra. "The entire focus was on showcasing the emotion and musical validity of the song in an organic way." For Demetree, returning to the basics was an exciting challenge. "To go back to square one and make an acoustic version of this dynamic, mid-tempo power ballad was just a fantastic experience." The single, produced by Bobby Huff (Reba, 3 Doors Down, Journey, Heart) and written by Mark and Cherie Oakley, is rising on the MusicRow CountryBreakout™ Chart, currentlysitting at # 60. "Outta My Head" delves into the reminders left behind when a relationship ends: the photos, the empty space beside the bed and more. It's a tale that most listeners can relate to, and it follows the petite brunette's three previous successful Country radio releases, including the popular single/video duet of her own composition, "Lay It On Me," with The Bachelorette's Wes Hayden.
Demetree wraps a four-day radio promotion tour of Oklahoma today; the tour will resume in a few weeks. She continues to work on her upcoming EP. Fans can learn more about Alexandra from recent features at The Daily Country, Music News San Francisco, Digital Rodeo and One Stop Country.
ABOUT ALEXANDRA DEMETREE
Alexandra's first performance, at the tender age of two, was singing Christmas carols for her Grandma's bridge group. Throughout her childhood, she sang in her church choir - in Latin. Music quickly became Demetree's passion and her life goal - to the extent that this true "Southerner," traveled all the way to Illinois to secure a degree from Northwestern University's prestigious musical theater program. With musical influences ranging from Motown, Celine Dion, LeAnn Rimes, David Nail, Garth Brooks, Adele and The Eli Young Band, it's no surprise that this native Floridian is an inspiring and energetic performer. Demetree has entertained crowds at Festivals, Fairs and venues ranging from New York's world-famous Carnegie Hall to stages in Cape Town, South Africa. She's performed for First Lady Barbara Bush, at Walt Disney World and at the Toyota Gator Bowl. She's opened for Andy Griggs and toured with singer/actor Wes Hayden. Alexandra has released three successful Country radio singles to date, including the popular single/video duet of her self-composed, "Lay It On Me," with The Bachelorette's Hayden. The singer/songwriter is most comfortable wearing jeans and cowboy boots. In her spare time, she enjoys creating Lebanese dishes, reading and traveling. Demetree supports The Children's Hospital at Oklahoma University Medical Center and resides in Oklahoma City with her family.
