Singer/songwriter Ronnie McDowell debuts his new music video,
“Bring Back Rock and Roll,” this week on the popular television show,
Country Classics. McDowell is hosting the show over the next four
weeks, sharing stories along with
his latest news while bringing videos to country music fans.
Ronnie McDowell’s new video is for the first single off of his
upcoming album, “The Studio Chronicles.” “Bring Back Rock and Roll”
features McDowell with the legendary Bill Medley (The Righteous
Brothers) and hitmaker Billy Swan (“I Can Help”), as well as
entrepreneur Steve Geppi who sparked the idea for the song. “We were in
Vegas and only heard constant loud music with no melody. That is when
Steve said, ‘We need to bring back rock and roll.’ And I knew
immediately we had a song,” remembers McDowell.
The melody is reminiscent of the 50’s rock and roll sounds that
‘stirred the soul.’ Footage of rockers Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley and
Buddy Holly is scattered between studio recording takes.
Ronnie McDowell also introduces videos from other country music
legends during the episodes. Fans can tune in on Heartland, The Family
Channel, Angel Two Network, The Country Network, Keep It Country,
Country Tv and various networks the weeks of August 20th, August 27th,
September 3rd and September 10th. Check local listing for day and time.
