Rich Enlists Rourke, Kristofferson for “Detroit” Video

Warner Bros. Records Artist John Rich will release his new solo album, Son Of A Preacher Man, on Tuesday, March 24. As the album’s debut single, “Shuttin’ Detroit Down” climbs toward the Top 10, Rich called on a couple of famous friends — actor Mickey Rourke and Country Music Hall of Fame member Kris Kristofferson — to help him shoot the song’s video. The two-day “Shuttin’ Detroit Down” video shoot took place this week in West Nashville. Rourke flew into Nashville from Moscow the day before the shoot and Kristofferson arrived from Los Angeles.

“I cannot think of two guys who have pulled themselves up by the boot straps time and time again, blue collar level superstars than Mickey Rourke and Kris Kristofferson,” said Rich. “These guys have faces that tell a story. It is a humbling experience working with these guys. I am way out of my league.”

Rich will get behind Son Of A Preacher Man with a barrage of promotional TV appearances including ABC’s Good Morning America and Fox News’ Hannity’s America on March 24, Fox News’ Glenn Beck on March 25, NBC’s Today Show and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on March 26 and Fox News’ America’s Newsroom with Megyn Kelly on March 27.
