FIRST SINGLE FROM THE MARCH 17 RELEASE DOWN TO BELIEVING ON eONE
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 7, 2015) – Academy and Grammy award nominated songstress Allison Moorer is set to hit the CMT airwaves on Wednesday, January 7th with her sultry video for “Like It Used To Be,” the first single from her March 17th eOne Music release Down To Believing. The video can be seen at 6:00 and 11:00 am EST, and preorders are available here: PREORDER LINK HERE. The clip is directed and produced by Coleman Saunders of Americus Studios. Watch the clip here: LIKE IT USED TO BE.
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. The song and video for ‘Like It Use To Be’ sets the tone for this brilliant awakening.”
Fram seems to be right in line with what others are hearing from Moorer. Rolling Stone calls the body of work “brilliant and extraordinarily candid,” 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.
This marks Moorer’s 9th album since 1998’s Alabama Song, and continues to offer the listener some of the most bravest, directly confessional work of any songwriter. Moorer reunites with producer and musician Kenny Greenberg (he produced her first 2 MCA releases) on the 13 -track collection of what Moorer calls her “best piece of work she feels she has ever done.”
Moorer will be performing the new songs during the popular 30A Songwriters Festival in South Walton, FL in January before she heads to Scotland for the Celtic Connections Festival. The first leg of the Down To Believing tour will begin the week of release (Please see tour dates below).
