Kristian Bush – Light Me Up
More About Kristian
Platinum-selling country star and Streamsound Recording artist Kristian Bush is letting sparks fly with the release of his new single “Light Me Up.” The track is already one of the most added at country radio.
The anthemic love song, co-written by Bush and Jesse Rice (“Cruise”), marks the eagerly awaited follow-up to Bush’s Top 20 hit “Trailer Hitch,” and shows a different side of this multi-faceted artist. “When you are loved by someone, it changes you forever,” says Bush of “Light Me Up.” “I decided to write a song to celebrate that.”
Bush is currently on the road for a two-week long military tour of U.S. military bases in Japan. Following those performances, he will return to Nashville, TN for the CMA Music Festival, making several appearances throughout the week including the Bluebird Cafe (6/9), the CMA Close-Up Stage (6/11), the Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman (6/13), the Chevy Riverfront stage (6/13), and the HGTV Lodge (6/14). In the evenings, he will sit in as the on-air host for BBC2 Radio/Bob Harris Country’s coverage of the LP Field concerts for the third consecutive year.
The GRAMMY-winning recording artist has been leaving his mark on music for more than two decades. The singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist started his career with folk-rock duo Billy Pilgrim in the early ‘90s; in 2004, he exploded onto the country music scene with Sugarland, surpassing sales of over 22 million albums worldwide, achieving five No. 1 singles and winning numerous awards, including GRAMMYs, AMAs, ACMs, CMT Music Awards and CMAs. To date, Bush has garnered six BMI Awards for his songwriting, and in 2011 he founded the music publishing company and songwriting collective Songs of the Architect. Recent collaborations include Laura Bell Bundy, Larkin Poe, Dan Tyminski, Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale and more. Bush is currently serving as a celebrity ambassador for Goodwill Industries International, with “Trailer Hitch” featured as the centerpiece of their #GiveItAway campaign.

Everyone asks “what exactly do you do Jessica?” What some of my family members say, “she tweets for a living” is my favorite, but really the title that puts food on the table is “Social Media Influencer,” the definition sounds simple, someone who influences others through social media, but I consider myself a Citizen Journalist broadcasting and entertaining with news, thoughts, opinions, delivering information in my own unique way. Famous for my ‘sass wit and straight from the hip’ style I’ve always been called a “Social Media Pioneer” in the music industry. I’m also an On-Air/Online Broadcasting Host and Personality, Digital Media Strategist, Country and Music Blogger/Journalist as well as a Nationally recognized Speaker and Founder of Country Music Chat, News and Views Entertainment Website CMChatLIVE.com. My favorite accomplishment is starting the largest Country Music Hashtag community in the world Country Music’s #CMChat.
It all started with a hunch…back in the early 2000’s I would dial up the internet via AOL and join chat rooms whilst watching my favorite programs on TV. Loved watching Reality Shows with my Mom in Tucson, and blowing her mind with how I always knew who was going home on the Bachelor or Big Brother. Don’t think she ever caught on that I was talking to people via computer on the East Coast, where it had already aired. (We didn’t have the uber-spoiler Twitter or Facebook to ruin results and awards shows for us yet.)
I’ve been taking over the internet, one tweet at a time and have accumulated over 3 Million followers/friends/fans across all my Social Media networks. Over the years I’ve been consistently ranked as an influential online personality and even named as a Forbes Top 50 Social Media Power Influencer. I was the first person Merle Haggard followed when he got on Twitter and spent the day with Garth Brooks at Twitter and Facebook when joined the social media world.
