  • CLARE DUNN DEBUTS NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR ‘TUXEDO.’

    Clare Dunn debuted her “Tuxedo” music video with VEVO today. The video, directed by Kristin Barlowe, was shot on an actual working Tennessee farm.

    Clare explains, “’Tuxedo’ is a song about my dream guy and the example my dad set for me as to what to look for in strength of character in a man. So that’s where ‘Tuxedo’ came from, and I wanted to represent that real story in the video.”

    The Colorado native came up with the concept for the video. “I’m so proud that I got a chance to show the fans out there more of who I am just as a person, as a farm girl,” she says. “I grew up riding horses and working out in a horse barn and working cattle and fixing fence, and I grew up watching the men and women out there in my part of the world working side-by-side. And so, I was just very excited to get to bring more of who I am as a farm girl to this video and get to show people that side of me.”

    Currently playing at radio, “Tuxedo” is off Clare’s self-titled EP and was written by Clare, Ben West and Brett James.

    Declared “One To Watch” by Billboard, The Boston Globe, Huffington Post, Rolling Stone, USA Today and more, Clare has made a strong impression on critics and audiences alike with her stellar guitar work, her honest lyrics and her no-holds-barred stage show.

    Audio / We asked Clare Dunn if her model-esque leading man in the “Tuxedo” video could actually fix a fence (ride a horse, etc.) or did she have to whisper how to do it while filming. Here’s what she had to say:

    Download

    Clare Dunn (Tuxedo video leading man) OC: …got it done. [laughs] :34
    “Our leading man, Lee, I have no doubt knows how to fix [a] fence. For the sake of time and because we were on an actual ranch, we could not [laughs] cut the fence and rebuild it. But Lee comes from sort of a similar background as I do and grew up with cattle, and so I have no doubt that he knew how to fix the fence. But even if he hadn’t, I’m confident that I could’ve whispered some tips and tricks to him and we could’ve got it done.’ [laughs]

    Audio / The video for Clare Dunn’s single “Tuxedo,” was her concept, one that actually reflects how she grew up.

    Clare Dunn (Tuxedo video concept) OC: …side of me. 1:14
    “The video is actually the movie that was playing in my head when I wrote the song – these are the things that I was imagining, and when I write songs I sort of write the video right there in my head. I called Joanna up at my record label, and I told her my idea and I was lucky enough that they all liked it and we set to work finding a director that got it and understood my vision. We were so lucky to find Kristin Barlowe, and she definitely, she understood what I wanted and then it was a process of all of us honing in on my ideas. I was very fortunate to have a team that just really worked so hard to bring my vision to life. I’m so proud that I got a chance to show the fans out there more of who I am just as a person, as a farm girl. I grew up riding horses and working out in a horse barn and working cattle and fixing fence, and I grew up watching the men and women out there in my part of the world working side-by-side. And so, I was just very excited to get to bring more of who I am as a farm girl to this video and get to show people that side of me.”

  • CLARE DUNN IS GETTING READY TO PREMIERE THE VIDEO FOR ‘TUXEDO.’

    Clare Dunn premieres the video for her single, “Tuxedo,” Wednesday (May 11th) on Vevo. The clip is a look into how she grew up on a farm/ranch, and all the things that influenced her as a young farm girl…just like the song.

    “I always watched and admired and dated farm boys and cowboys and that’s where the inspiration for the song itself comes from,” says Clare. “It’s really me dreaming about wanting to find my ‘Tuxedo’ man and all the things that I hoped he would be and all the things that are important to me, and so I wanted that to reflect in the video.”

    “Tuxedo” is on her self-titled EP, which also features the songs “Move On,” “Ferrari,” “Old Hat” and “Cowboy Side of You.”

    You can catch Clare performing “Tuxedo,” as well as many other songs, as she crisscrosses the country on tour. Find more information on Clare and her tour dates at claredunn.com.

    “The video for ‘Tuxedo’ is definitely a look at how I grew up on a small farming ranch in Southeast Colorado and all the things that influenced me as a young farm girl. I always watched and admired and dated farm boys and cowboys and that’s where the inspiration for the song itself comes from. It’s really me dreaming about wanting to find my ‘Tuxedo’ man and all the things that I* hoped he would be and all the things that are important to me, and so I wanted that to reflect in the video. I come from the farming way of life, the country way of life, the ranching way of life, and I wanted to show that in the video.”

    “She is unrelenting in her love and her support, and even when we’re crazy kids and we screw up, it doesn’t matter. Her love knows no bounds. And her undying devotion to her kids – to my sister and I – always believing in us a million percent, always backing us up a million percent and helping us navigate life and navigate our dreams and helping us go towards that goal – those are some of the qualities that I hope to have some day as a mother, you know? And I’m so grateful I have THE best mom in the WORLD!”

    Darius Rucker (Mother’s Day) OC: …killed me. :17

    “I think that’s the main reason I am how I am…an innate fear of disappointing my mom.  My mom’s not even alive, and I have a fear of her looking down from heaven and going, ‘Man I’m just disappointed in my son.’ She could have said anything in the world to me, but if she would have said, ‘Son, you just disappointed me,’ That would have killed me. It would have killed me.”

    Audio / Darius Rucker recalls one of his favorite memories of his mother.

    Darius Rucker (favorite memory of his mother) OC: …my Mom’s song. :34
    “Oh goodness! A lot of great memories of her, but probably one of my favorite memories, I was a young kid, probably eight or nine, and she was in the kitchen cooking and listening to the gospel station and Shirley Caesar’s ‘No Charge’ came on and she was singing ‘No Charge.’ I just remember I ran into our living room which was adjoined to our kitchen and I just sat there and I just listened to her sing that song, and I remember thinking, ‘Wow! What an amazing voice.’ That’s just always a memory I’ve always had, and that song still to this day when I hear it just moves me because that was my mom’s song.”

    Dierks (Mother’s Day) OC: …for sure. :20
    “When it’s your actual mom, you know, there’s some slack there, but when with your wife – any touring husband, anyone who tours who has kids and a wife back home, it’s tough man. It’s a lot of work. So, I definitely need to step up to think of something great to do this Sunday, for sure.”

    Audio / Eric Church says he’s learned quite a bit from his mom.

    Eric Church (Mother’s Day) OC: …as a man. :57
    “My mom, even though my dad won’t like this, my mom is by far the toughest person that I’ve met. She’s tough. One of those people that’s been through a lot in her life, adversity wise and never complains, always really resilient with anything that’s happened to her. And it’s just that attitude, the positive attitude, regardless of what has happened that I think is the one thing that I got from her. With career, she’s always been a person that’s been really positive through times that I couldn’t find a positive streak, [laughs] and she was always really positive, and very much believes in tough it out, keep working hard, and that’s her motto with stuff like that. I’ve always been impressed with that stuff. Then musically, she’s where I get my talent from, musically. She sings great, always has, her mom sang great. I owe my musical chops to her. And she still sings some. So, career-wise, I owe her everything. And just in life-wise she’s given me a lot of the qualities that it has taken for me to get me where I am. Not only as a musician, but as a man.”

She’s always been like that, and she’s a great mother. She’s always proud, and she’s always there supporting and being a great mom. She’s just a good human being. There’s not one mean bone in her body. And she cries about every time I talk to her. She always worries about me. I have to tell her, ‘Stop worrying about me.’”

She makes soap and they’re beautiful and they smell really good and they’re all natural. My sister has an etsy store, and she’s constantly creating something, sewing pillows and taking pictures.”

    “We were honestly, at times, pretty hard to handle, both of us. We used to play our music loud up above on the second floor [of the house], bang on the drums and the guitar. And my mom’s just one of those people, she’ll do anything for her family and she sacrificed a lot for us boys. Anytime we needed something, she made it happen. And so, we owe her a lot. She’s definitely the reason we’re playing music.”

    Lauren Alaina (Mom) OC: …same for her. :19
    “I honestly would not be able to do it without my mom. I get overwhelmed sometimes, and if she wasn’t there to comfort me or tell me, ‘Look just realize what you’ve got going for you,’ I’d be up the creek [without a paddle]. She’s got my back. My mom would walk through a fire pit for me, and I’d do the same for her.”

    “Being a mother is a life-long dream for me. When I was a kid, that’s what I wanted to be is a mama. It took a long time. I wasn’t ever sure that I would be, but I am now, and it’s the greatest gift of my life. And as I’m a mother now, I see what my mother gave up and her sacrifices and her love and how she made us the most important thing in her life, and that’s what I strive to do for my little girl. It’s the most important job I have, and it’s the most responsibility that I have, and I try to live up to a great example that I had for my mother.”

    MCA Nashville’s Clare Dunn attended her first ever NASCAR events over the weekend, performing a full band set in the Bristol Motor Speedway infield following Saturday’s XFINITY Series race and singing the National Anthem at Sunday’s Sprint Cup Series Food City 500. While there, she was able to meet a few of NASCAR’s biggest names including Danica Patrick and Sunday’s race-winner, Carl Edwards.

    Clare shared the photo above on her socials saying, “So great meeting Carl Edwards after winning at Bristol Motor Speedway! Such an awesome day!!” While this may have been the first race for Clare, the dynamic up-and-comer declares it is “definitely not my last!”

  • CLARE DUNN MAKES HER OPRY DEBUT.

    Clare Opry debut

    MCA Nashville’s bold, new up-and-comer Clare Dunn fulfilled a life-long dream when she took the stage at Nashville’s famed Grand Ole Opry Saturday night. Performing her brand new single, “Tuxedo,” and the heartfelt “Old Hat” off her self-titled EP, Clare received a warm reception from the packed Grand Ole Opry House. The audience included friends and family in town from her home state of Colorado, and former co-workers from Clare’s early days in Nashville when she worked in the Opry gift shop.

    “Singing my songs at the Grand Ole Opry is something I’ve dreamed of for so long,” Clare shares through joyous tears. “To share this now with my family, who always believed in me and worked so hard to help me pursue my dreams, I just cannot put into words how much this moment means to me.”

    Declared “One To Watch” by Billboard, The Boston Globe, Huffington Post, Rolling Stone, USA Today and more, Clare has made a strong impression on critics and audiences alike with her stellar guitar work, her honest lyrics and her no-holds-barred stage show. Clare has upcoming shows in Mont.; Mass.; Penn. and Maine including opening for Lee Brice on the Life Off My Years Tour.

    Clare recalls one of the “coolest” shows she watched while working at the Opry. It was during Marty Stuart‘s birthday celebration, and he was joined onstage by Keith Urban. “Marty and Keith sat alone on bar stools with acoustic guitars and proceeded to bring the house down with Hank Sr.’s ‘I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry.’ And I just remember standing at the back and feeling that electricity and never felt a room like that before. I’d never felt that feeling at a show. It was unlike anything I had ever witnessed. That was truly inspiring night for me, along with many countless shows that I got to watch while working there.”

    “I think one of the best and most memorable shows I ever got to watch at the Opry while I was working there was during Marty Stuart’s birthday celebration and Keith Urban joined Marty on stage for a duet. So, Marty and Keith sat alone on bar stools with acoustic guitars and proceeded to bring the house down with Hank Sr.’s ‘I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry.’ And I just remember standing at the back and feeling that electricity and never felt a room like that before. I’d never felt that feeling at a show. It was unlike anything I had ever witnessed. That was truly inspiring night for me, along with many countless shows that I got to watch while working there.”

  • CLARE DUNN WILL COME ‘FULL CIRCLE’ AS SHE MAKES HER DEBUT AT THE GRAND OLE OPRY THIS WEEKEND.

    Clare Dunn makes her debut at the Grand Ole Opry Saturday night (March 5th), and it’s a homecoming of sorts for the singer from Colorado. The day after she moved to Nashville, she got a job working at the Opry’s gift shop. She worked there for several years while she was in college, and even after signing her first publishing deal as a songwriter.

    “I worked in the gift shop and I sold ‘Picture History Books’ before every show,” recalls Clare. “Every chance that I could and even a lot of times when I shouldn’t have, I would sneak into the house, and I would watch as much of the show as possible each night. Considering I worked every show every night, maybe I owe the Opry a buck or two back. [laughs] Anyway, I got to see Porter Wagoner before he passed away. I knew every Little Jimmy Dickens’ joke. I watched Jeanie Sealy & Jean Shepard in their elements every night, and witnessed so many new artists play the Opry for their first time and then go on to become superstars and return to the Opry. And it was just such an amazing experience.”

    So, for Clare, performing at the Grand Ole Opry is a full circle moment; one she’s not taking lightly. “I never dreamed in a million years while growing up driving tractors out on the Great Plains where I’m and listening to all the artists that played the Opry, I never dreamed that I would get a chance to see them or even be able to chase this dream myself,” says Clare. “So, working at the Opry was treasured time for me. It was a time of absorbing as much of the rich history of the Opry as I possibly could. It was a time of just getting to be near the music that shaped our genre, and getting to witness not only how the Opry house itself affects the fans, but the artists who are so honored to play that stage that made country music famous.”

    Clare has hit the airwaves with her new single, “Tuxedo,” which is featured on her self-titled EP that was released this past fall.

    “So I got a job working at the Grand Ole Opry literally the DAY AFTER I moved to Nashville! I worked there for several years while I was in college and during my first deal as a songwriter in town. I worked in the gift shop and I sold ‘Picture History Books’ before every show. There was a woman who would dress up like ‘Minnie Pearl’ and then every night she would make an announcement down in front of the audience about the Picture History Books, then my fellow book sellers and I would go down front, we’d hold up our books and immediate set to work hawking them for 15 bucks or whatever it was. And then every chance that I could, and even a lot of times when I shouldn’t have, I would sneak into the house and I would watch as much of the show as possible each night. Considering I worked every show every night, maybe I owe the Opry a buck or two back. [laughs] Anyway, I got to see Porter Wagoner before he passed away. I knew every Little Jimmy Dickens’ joke.

I don’t know how I’m going to get through it, but here we come Grand Ole Opry.”
