A teaser for “Girls On Bars”, the video for the new rock-and-country-crossover song from POISON singer Bret Michaels, can be seen below. The full clip is expected to be released on May 12.
Said Michaels about the track: “It is a very Americana, fun summer song that reminds me how much I love music with a sublime video feel of hanging with the fans.
“I wrote this song with my good friend and fellow Pennsylvanian, Luke Laird, who is a Grammy Award-winning songwriter of hits like LITTLE BIG TOWN‘s ‘Pontoon’, Eric Church‘s ‘Talledega’ and Luke Bryan‘s ‘I See You’.”
“Girls On Bars” is the first single from Bret‘s upcoming album, “True Grit”, featuring 21 new and classic Michaels hits.
Regarding his interest in country music, Michaels previously told Chicago Interview, “I think country and what I call classic rock have kind of mixed together a little bit. Country isn’t as old school as it used to be.”
He continued: “Remember, I grew up on Johnny Cash, Hank Williams senior and Merle Haggard — all the songs that my dad loved. And then I also grew up on THE BEATLES and THE [ROLLING] STONES that my mom loved. But I’ve probably got more traditional country in me than some of the new country artists.”
