Elektra Records country singer-songwriter Dean Alexander premiered the official music video for his new single “Live A Little” this week. The track recently reached the Top 50 at Billboard and is also available on digital retailers now. Named one of “Tomorrow’s Hits” by Billboard and the first single off his forthcoming album, “Live A Little” is a hook-filled celebration of life and an up-tempo call to seize the day — something Alexander’s life has more than qualified him to share about. In his introductory video, No Other Road, fans can explore a little more about Alexander’s life and story behind his music which truly is the reason he is here today. Engaging his fans on Facebook and Twitter, he encourages everyone to share their own #livealittle stories with him on social media.
Moving to Nashville in 2003 with only $100 and his guitar, Alexander worked odd jobs while living out of his car and honing his craft on the famous Broadway strip downtown. He found himself landscaping for (the now late) Barbara Orbison where she asked him for a demo CD while, quite literally, he was shoveling manure in her flowers. Within a week, Orbison herself offered him his first publishing deal. Fast forward to the fall of 2010, when Alexander was discovered by award-winning legendary producer Scott Hendricks, which ultimately led to his signing with the Warner Music Nashville family.
In the meantime, Alexander has already been named “One to Watch in 2014″ by Country Weekly as well as “Best Local Music Celebrity (2012)” by the Nashville Scene, alongside Taylor Swift and Jack White. “Dean’s music will stand out of the crowd from a songwriting sense and his vocal delivery,” raves Scott Hendricks, SVP of A&R, Warner Music Nashville. “There is simply nothing like it in our format. I’m anxious for the world to hear what we’ve been excited about since we met.”
