– Kristian Bush's first single as a solo artist, "Trailer Hitch," goes for adds July 28.
Bush, one-half of Sugarland, released the song in June on Streamsound Records. Bush put out the song after two years of songwriting and more than 300 songs. Executive producer Byron Gallimore, best known for his work with Tim McGraw, Sugarland and Faith Hill, was behind the release as well. Gallimore launched the label in 2012.
"My passion is creating and performing music. I love making records, and creating my first solo album has been one of my most joyous experiences to date. I know it's just the beginning. I am committed and determined to share my new music with as many people as I can reach," said Bush.
Bush recorded the playful, summertime vibe video for the song on the streets of Chicago on June 27. In the video, he is shown busking during the day in downtown Chicago, but instead of asking for contributions, he gives away money from his guitar case.
Bush wrote the song in one afternoon with his co-writer Tim Owens and brother Brandon Bush.
Bush has 10 solo shows this summer throughout the U.S. going through Sept. 19 in Raleigh, N.C.
Jennifer Nettles, Bush's counterpart in Sugarland, released her solo disc last year and has been touring behind it.
