Australian Trio Garnering Airplay On CMT Pure & Great American Country
Nashville, TN (August 9, 2011) — Australian country music trio, The McClymonts are set to release their new album, WRAPPED UP GOOD in the U.S. on August 23rd. These triple threat sisters – Sam, Mollie & Brooke – were inspired by a U.S. record executive who told them, “You won’t make it here, because you are girls & girls don’t sell in country music.” The three twenty-something singers’ self-reliant attitude grew from that point on, and now has manifested in their ambition.
These attractive young women moved to Nashville and started their own imprint, BSM Music with a worldwide partnership with Universal Music Group. They have recently embarked on their own U.S. tour performing at county and state fairs coast to coast after coming off of the 2010 Jason Aldean fall tour.
The talents of The McClymonts go beyond singing and playing instruments, having co-written 11 out of 12 songs on the WRAPPED UP GOOD collection. Helping to share their creative energies they enlisted the talents of highly sought after record producers, Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift) and Adam Anders (Fox TV’s Glee-Music Exec. Producer/Backstreet Boys/Nick Jonas/Sinead O’Connor).
Robert K. Oermann (Music Row Magazine) comments about the title track, “Wrapped Up Good.” “Attractively minor key, with cool dobro backing and a punchy rhythmic thump. The trio’s vocal arrangements are quite imaginative, alternating between straightforward harmonizing and Greek-chorus “answering” passages. Smartly bopping, maddeningly catchy and insanely listenable.”
In 2010, these three Australian sisters dominated the country music airwaves and charts in their homeland. The Australian release of “Wrapped Up Good” ended up being the Top 5 Best Selling Country Album of the Year (2010), outselling U.S. country artists like Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, Alan Jackson, Kenny Chesney amongst others. The first four singles from Wrapped Up Good all went straight to No.1 on the Australian Country charts.
Now this triple talented group brings their award-winning disc to share with American country music lovers on August 23rd. The sassy, fun video for “Wrapped Up Good” can currently be viewed on national networks, CMT Pure and Great American Country (GAC).
