ROLLING STONE TO PREMIERE ALLISON MOORER’S NEW VIDEO FOR “TEAR ME APART”

RELEASE OF EMOTION-FILLED ALBUM
DOWN TO BELIEVING
HAS CRITICS RAVING AT RESULTS

CMT PURE To Feature Video
On Their Channel Next Week

Academy and Grammy award nominated songstress, Allison Moorer, releases her new music video for her hit-single, “Tear Me Apart,” to a Rolling Stone live stream on Thursday, April 16, 2015. Rolling Stone will stream the video exclusively on all platforms following the release of her eighth studio album, Down To Believing, which was also streamed by Rolling Stone earlier last month. CMT PURE also plans to feature Moorer’s new video on their channel beginning next week.

Since the release of Moorer’s eighth studio album, Down To Believing, produced by Kenny Greenberg, critics have been applauding Moorer’s transparent approach to her lyrics regarding the harsh realities of life on the road to healing.

In a recent interview with Country Weekly, Moorer explains the heart behind her album, Down To Believing. “The idea that I had was that you wake up every day and you work at it because that’s what it requires, and when you wake up and realize that you can’t believe in it anymore, you have a decision to make.”

Moorer’s new video for “Tear Me Apart” captures the confusion of a broken heart. Filled with barbed wire, fragile glass hearts shattering and the final scene of her walking away into an open field, Moorer shows her fans that while there may be a broken road ahead, there is hope.

“It’s a brave album, at times with anger – ’Tear Me Apart’ is a showdown song.” – Neil Spencer [The Guardian]

“Everything is going to hell in “Tear Me Apart,” as Moorer sings about being in a destructive relationship and wanting to get out of it. She wonders why he wants to tear her apart and how she wants to just scream if he looks her way…She sings about how she wishes she had more strength to keep the relationship going longer and to keep that love alive, but there just isn’t any love left in her heart. Moorer’s vocals are just as flawless as the great lyrics in this song. This is arguably the best song on Down To Believing.” – Josh Schott [Country Perspective]

MOORER TO CO-HOST SIRIUS XM’S OUTLAW COUNTRY WITH

Moorer’s Eighth Studio Album Is About Coming To Terms With Emotional Pain and Heartache

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 17, 2015) – Academy and Grammy award nominated songstress, Allison Moorer, releases her highly anticipated album, Down To Believing today. Produced by friend and producer, Kenny Greenburg, Allison Moorer’s Down To Believing was born in a place of real pain and heartache and captures a powerful story of raw honesty and acceptance, making it some of the bravest and most confessional work of any songwriter on her road to healing. Rolling Stone featured a live stream of the album on Monday, March 16 and Allison Moorer will soon join host Meredith Ochs of SiriusXM’s Outlaw Country. Download Allison Moorer’s Down To Believing HERE.

Down To Believing is Allison Moorer’s eighth studio album since her 1998’s Alabama Song, and she considers this release to be her best yet. With 13 new songs from the country-rocking first single “Like It Used To Be,” to the emotionally-charged songs like “Thunderstorm Hurricane,” “Tear Me Apart,” and “Mama Let The Wolf In,” Moorer’s new album allows listeners to experience the tough reality and heartache of divorce and daily struggles of a son living with autism.

CMT Senior VP of Music Strategy Leslie Fram says, “Raw, genuine and full of passion & grit, Allison Moorer’s ‘Down To Believing’ is the album we’ve been waiting for, a timeless journey into life and loss.”

Rolling Stone also calls the body of work “brilliant and extraordinarily candid,” while Huffington Post praised her Americana Fest set as one of this year’s highlights and Country Weekly proclaimed the nuances of her songs hit home.

Country artist Miranda Lambert also took note of Allison’s soulful approach to songwriting saying in a recent interview with AL.com, “I love Allison Moorer. She’s kind of the reason I started writing songs. I learned from her music that it’s OK for women to write about heartache and problems.”

What They Are Saying:

“Extraordinary.” – Stephen L. Betts [Rolling Stone]

“Moorer, a superb singer, has too much edge, drive and energy to wallow and her lyrics pare the throbbing pain down to a minimal plainless: I lost my crystal ball/ Found Me a Wrecking ball.” – [People Magazine] [Allison Moorer] “continues to keep it honest, as she deals with a great deal of change and upheaval in her personal life.” – Colin Stutz [Billboard]

“It’s a brave album, at times raw with anger.” – Neil Spencer [The Guardian]

“Out of the pain and anger, Moorer has fashioned the finest album of her career.”
– Nigel Williamson [Uncut Magazine]

“This break-up record, recorded after her seven-year marriage to Steve Earle fell apart, is full of raw emotion. There is a neat cover of Creedence’s Have You Ever Seen the Rain but the best songs are her own heartfelt and brooding country ones.” – Martin Chilton [The Telegraph]

“She is a Southern girl with a big heart and an honest streak running throughout her soul. You piss her off and she’s going to tell you. If she loves you, she will tell you that too.” – Troy Michael [Innocent Words]

“There’s no doubt that Allison Moorer poured her heart into this album. As you listen, you feel like you’re right beside her as she sings about the ups and downs of her relationships, marriage, and family. There are heavy influences of love, heartbreak, and emotional healing so props to Allison for being brave enough to talk about the hard stuff.” – Lindsay Thomas [Nashville Country Club]

“Allison Moorer is at her best when she writes from real personal experiences.” – [FDRMX]
