article imageSugarland's Kristian Bush is 'Giving It Away' in new lyric video

By Markos Papadatos     Jul 13, 2014 in Music
Platinum-selling country star Kristian Bush (best known for his work in the country duo Sugarland) is giving cash away in the lyric video for his new single "Trailer Hitch."
With his guitar over his shoulder, Bush took to the streets of Chicago and he filled his guitar case with cash to give away to the people that were passing by.
He co-wrote the new single with his brother Brandon Bush and Tim Owens. The tune carries the underlying message of enjoying the gift of giving back over the desire for material things.
In the "Trailer Hitch" lyric video, he inscribed the words "please take on" on the sidewalk in chalk next to his open guitar case that was full of cash, and he encouraged people to pay it forward. By the end, Bush leaves with a big smile after giving away $300 in less than two hours.
"I thought how cool it would be if we tried to give away money from a guitar case instead of ask for money," Bush remarked in a press release. "People were looking at me funny; they got suspicious. I mean, here I am giving strangers money on the street. People would say no, and then I'd say, 'Go give it to someone who needs it.' Then they caught on. It turns out, people are much more comfortable giving than they are taking."
This song is the lead single from Bush's debut solo album, where he collaborated with longtime producer Byron Gallimore. The project will be released on Streamsound Records. It will hit the country radio airwaves nationwide on July 28.
Throughout his musical career, as a member of Sugarland, he has sold over 22 million albums worldwide, achieved five No. 1 singles and won every music award possible. In 2011, he founded the music publishing company and songwriting collective Songs of the Architect.
