Pete Kennedy Releases His Debut Music Video for “I Am The One”
(NASHVILLE, TN) Irish singer-songwriter Pete Kennedy
takes to the streets and bars of Nashville’s Lower Broadway in the new
music video for his hit single, “I Am The One”. The song comes from Pete’s award-winning album, The Nashville Sessions Volume 1, and the video can be found online here.
The video, directed by Kevin Scott Page, features Kennedy playing
at the Whiskey Bent Saloon and walking along Nashville’s legendary
Broadway Avenue. Celebrity fashion line, Corello (Miranda Lambert, The Band Perry, Ne-Yo)
styled Pete for the shoot with a one-of-a-kind eel skin cuff and fitted
logo tee. Pete also contributed footage from his small hometown in
Ireland, where the inspiration for “I Am The One”
originated. “My father passed tragically when I was a young boy,” said
Pete. “This song is my way of encompassing what I would say to my father
if he was here now.”
Pete Kennedy is currently on a 3-month tour of the UK, playing 10 shows with the great pop singer/pianist/composer Neil Sedaka,and then switching gears as he opens for Philadelphia soul group, The Stylistics throughout
November and December. He is excited to share a stage with these
legendary acts as he brings his music to new audiences around the world.
Pete Kennedy is the walking, talking, singing embodiment
of how the world sees the people of Ireland—repeatedly bouncing back
from tragedy and finding inspiration in music. After a lifetime of
working solely to support his family, Pete was finally able to pursue
his love of music in 2008. Forging his path by playing local pubs in
Germany and the UK, Pete began to make a name for himself in the world
of country music. His entrepreneurial style resulted in the formation of
his own label, KEMC Records and his first EP. From there, he caught the
eye of CMR Nashville’s Lee Williams, who brought Pete to Nashville to
play his first show at Cadillac Ranch as a representative of Ireland for
the International Artist Showcase prior to the 2011 CMA Awards. He has
since released his first album, The Nashville Sessions Volume 1, which has received critical acclaim and was named UK Album of the Year at the 2012 British Country Music Awards.
