I got a message on Twitter yesterday morning, it simply said. “@countryschatter what are the chances of you doing a write up on @ChristianKane01 the house rules video debut. mgr is @BrandXmgmt.” My answer to TweebaKane, the chances are very good.
Until I got that Tweet yesterday, I had no idea who Christian Kane was. So I did a little looking around, and found out that if I had been watching CMT this weekend, instead of spending the entire weekend at our local Apple Festival, I might have found out that he had his debut video premiered on CMT during the new music weekend, Oct. 1-3. If you missed it too, you can see it here.
I really hate to compare artists, but when I listened to this song, the first thing that came to mind was– if you like Jason Aldean, you are going to like Christian Kane. If you stand the two side by side, they don’t even slightly resemble each other – however, when you listen to “The House Rules,” you might for at least a minute think you’re listening to Jason Aldean, and when you get to the part where he sings “welcome to my house, buckle up tight, everybody sings and drinks…” you might think you’re listening to part of “She’s Country” that you somehow missed the other times you heard the song. The second time I heard the song, there were parts where he reminded me a little of Randy Houser, too.
His bio lists his hometown as Dallas, Texas, Norman, Okla., but he resides in Los Angeles and Nashville. His birthday is June 27, he got his education at the University of Oklahoma, and he has one sister, Jennifer. His hobbies include cooking, and of course singing and songwriting.
And if you think he looks more than a little bit familiar, that could be because you’ve seen him on television. Christian is also an actor. You can find out more about that by clicking here. If you watch the TNT series “Leverage,” you’ve seen Christian. He’s one of the shows stars, and plays the role of Elliott Spencer.
When I go to find out about an artist who is new to me, I always hit YouTube. When I searched out Christian, I didn’t have to listen to many songs before I picked a favorite – It’s “Thinking Of You.” I guess I like the slower ones that remind me more of country than they do of rock music. And “Thinking of You” does.
When I got done watching clips from YouTube, I decided to put this one up for all of you, because it has a lot of great photos of Christian in it. I think you’ll enjoy looking at them. You’ll also have a chance to decide if he should go long hair, or short hair.The song is called “All I Did Was Love Her.” And, I really like it.
It’s Monday, time to head off to the office. I hope all of you had a really fun weekend. We have definitely got Fall in the air this morning! Remember to drop me a line when you get a chance. It’s always great hearing from you guys.
I’ll talk to you real soon,
