Show Dog Universal Music recording artist Joel Crouse will debut his first music video, "If You Want Some," on RollingStone.com tomorrow, Thursday, June 20. The video, directed by Chris Hicky, features Crouse and his band setting up to perform and party with friends outside a convenience market after their tour van breaks down. Check out the worldwide video premiere teaser here. Pick up a copy of Crouse's new single "If You Want Some" on iTunes here.
"I can't really describe how exciting this is for me," said Crouse, who recently turned 21 on June 14. "First, I have a record deal and I'm working on my album, which is the fulfillment of a dream I've had since I was a kid. Then, I'm touring stadiums with Taylor Swift, which is awesome. And now, I've filmed a music video and RollingStone.com is playing it first! It just doesn't get much better than that."
"If You Want Some" was written by Luke Laird, Jamie Houston and Crouse and will appear on his forthcoming debut album. PEOPLE Country calls Crouse's debut a "beer-drinking anthem" and Taste of Country proclaims the record is "just different enough from everything else on the radio hoping to engage younger audiences, but not so different that the traditionalists will be turned off." Billboard adds, "'If You Want Some' has an inviting groove that perfectly frames Crouse's soulful country vocals, and his vibrant personality on the mic will make country fans want to hear more."
Crouse, who recently made his Grand Ole Opry debut, will continue performing with Taylor Swift on her "Red Tour" through the end of July. Each week, Crouse hosts #DressingRoomSessions on his website, where he posts a new video offering fans a glimpse of his pre-show warm-up on the tour.
