Nashville, TN (October 13, 2016)
Expanded Press Release
Denny Strickland's latest music video, "Get A Grip,"premiered (Oct 12, 2016) on VEVO while the cast, crew, industry elite and media attended a private Nashville screening party at The Cellar @ The Sutler Saloon.  VEVO, the world's leading music video and entertainment platform, boasts viewership numbers exceeding 18 BILLION per month. 
The "Get A Grip" video can be seen now on VEVO and on Denny's VEVO YouTube channel. 

Composers: Bill DiLuigi, Jack Williams, Troy Johnson | 2016 Red Star Label Group
Denny Strickland - “Get A Grip” (Red Star Productions): The independent singer/songwriter makes a case for mainstream success with his latest single. “Get A Grip” has wholly contemporary radio production and lyrics and an inviting melody -

The video, directed and produced by Brian Harstine (Dolly Parton, Ke$ha) for Liquid Crystal Productions, was shot at Plush Ultra Lounge on Nashville's historic 2nd Avenue.  The late-night hot spot was the perfect fit for the seductive video, with its high-end club effects enhanced by Harstine's visionary talents.  

Featuring numerous area dancers and Titans' cheerleaders both past and present, the stars of the clip are without a doubt celebrity models Jessica Ashley (Miss June 2014 - Playboy, Miss COED October 2013) and Tina Louise (Maxim, Playboy, Inked, FHM, Galore, Esquire).

Hypnotic, pulsating and sensual are the words that best describe the mood-imbued piece, which pushes the boundaries of Country music's comfort zone! 

Denny's deep-throated rumble rivets the listener, while his sultry looks and commanding physical presence are used to maximum advantage.  

From his entrance on a customized motorcycle to his swaggering walk into the Lounge, the vibe is set.   This is a video for adults: the lust, energy and excitement of the club scene are shown in all their youthful, cathartic wonder.  "The key throughout the production was to purposefully blend Denny's distinct Country style with the song's clear Pop/Hip Hop tones," notes Harstine. "We kept the composition focused on the artist while a Filmatic pace was maintained. 
Lasers and heavy color wash added atmospheric elements that were ably handled by the Arri-Alexa camera used."   LCProductions has previously created two acoustic performance video series for Strickland: 2015's Dive Sessions and this year's Cellar Sessions.

Strickland's marketing team made the most of the cast's strong combined social media following of SIX MILLION-plus, encouraging tweets, posts and screen captures throughout the private party. "The Cellar gathering was really a continuation of the wild ride we started during the video shoot itself," comments Denny.  "I just hope fans like the video as much as we enjoyed makin' it."

The "Get A Grip" single is already firing up listeners overseas. It made a debut at #17 on the International Hotdisc Top 40 (chart week Sept 11, 2016). 
It has climbed to #2 (chart week Oct 16, 2016) the song retaining its current peak spot. Hotdisc now goes out to 750-800 DJs and media folk around Europe who critique and score the submitted tracks from 1 - 10.

Stateside, the release is moving up theMusicRow Country Breakout ™ Chart.   The hip, hot and hypnotic trackwas written by Bill DiLuigi (Richie McDonald, Shaun Murphy), Troy Johnson (Dixie Chicks, Tim McGraw) and Henry Jack Williams (Little River Band, Uriah Heep).

The single follows Denny's two previous MusicRow Chart hits: the full throttle "Swerve On"and the suggestive "How Far You Wanna Go."  Denny's sultry acoustic cover of Conway Twitty's "I'd Love To Lay You Down" earned him a staggering four-week #1 run on the HotdiscChart.  Strickland performs across the U.S. and has opened for many of today's biggest stars (Maddie & Tae, Jamey Johnson, 3 Doors Down, The Kentucky Headhunters).

Tina grew up in a three-bedroom cottage in the Australian countryside with six other family members.
Tina was 15, and she “went from being a tomboy and grew into being a young woman, and that’s when I began learning about fashion and beauty,” she told website Eden Knows Implants.

She was discovered at age 21 by a photographer who took a few shots of her that ended up on the cover of Maxim. She then won the title of Australia’s Hottest Bikini Model at age 25. Tina has landed covers for other magazines, including FHM and Zoo Weekly.

The heavily tattooed beauty got her first ink at age 18, but she didn’t get her second tattoo—a cross to remind her that God is most important in her life—until 27. She didn’t start work on her sleeves until after she moved to the United States.
She then realized that tattooed models are more acceptable in America. “I’ve always loved tattoos, but in Australia you are limited on what you can do, so I always restrained myself from getting more,” she told Inked Magazine. “Now I book more jobs being a tattooed model then I did when I had none.”
