Country artist Marlee Scott is celebrating the iTunes release of her new “Train Wreck” single and the world premiere of the song’s music video across several prominent CMT platforms this week.
Marlee’s “Train Wreck” officially world premieres today, March 5, in conjunction with the release of the new CMT Insider application for iPad. The app gives Country music fans an exclusive first look at Marlee’s new music video, directed by CMT Director of the Year award-winner Roman White (Taylor Swift’s “Fifteen,” Blake Shelton’s “Hillbilly Bone,” Lady Antebellum’s “Hello World”). The CMT Insider app is also available on iPhone, iPod Touch, and Android devices.
“Marlee is a young, emerging artist who has done a good job of promoting her music across several platforms – new and traditional,” said Stephen Linn, CMT’s Senior Director, Music Programming and Promotion. “That’s one reason we think world premiering “Train Wreck” across our various platforms like the Insider app, CMT Pure and CMT.com will work well for the video.”
Produced by David Kalmusky, the tongue-in-cheek “Train Wreck” single debuts for purchase on iTunes on Tuesday, March 6. A high-energy dance version, produced and remixed by Allen Morgan, will also be available for purchase. The dance remix has been received enthusiastically at clubs across the country, thanks in part to its custom choreographed “Wreck’d” line dance.
Featuring a guest appearance from Vince Gill and written by acclaimed Nashville songwriters Marcus Hummon, Jedd Hughes and Sarah Buxton, the up-tempo single has been steadily moving up the Billboard, Aircheck and Music Row Country radio charts for the past several weeks. “Train Wreck” is the second release from Marlee’s debut album, due out in the coming months on Big Ride Records. In 2011, the Nashville-based singer introduced herself to Country radio with the uplifting anthem “Beautiful Maybe.”
Marlee has already visited more than 100 radio stations on a nationwide radio tour in support of “Train Wreck.” She made several appearances at prominent sporting events in 2011, including the Breeders’ Cup World Championships, the Clemson/Virginia Tech college football ACC Championship game and several MLB baseball and NHL hockey games. She also launched her “Make It or Bake It” webisode cooking series. The humorous videos (view them here) feature some of Marlee’s favorite food and drink recipes. Her latest installment is a rum-based concoction called “Super Hot Chocolate.”
