MUSIC NEWS: TED NUGENT Premieres New Single "She's Gone" Featuring Sammy Hagar Today (6/9)

Today (6/9) multi-platinum guitar icon TED NUGENT premiered the first single "She's Gone" featuring Sammy Hagar--off his new studio album SHUTUP&JAM! (out Tuesday, July 8 on Frontiers Records)--on ULTIMATECLASSICROCK.com, listen here: http://bit.ly/1o5E7y1.

Special guest Sammy Hagar brings his vocal power to "She's Gone" for an epic lead vocal duet with NUGENT. The song also features a special performance from one of the most respected drummers in rock, Johnny "Bee" Badanjek of the legendary Detroit band Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels. SHUTUP&JAM! marks the first all-new studio album from the Motor City Madman in seven years. NUGENT leads the pack of renowned musicians, handling guitar and vocal duties, alongside bassist Greg Smith, drummer Mick Brown and longtime musical cohort guitarist/vocalist Derek St. Holmes. SHUTUP&JAM! is available now for pre-order at Amazon and iTunes. "She's Gone" is available as an instant grat on iTunes for fans who pre-order the album there (for those who don't know, this means the song will automatically download to their iTunes once they complete the pre-order purchase).

NUGENT declares, "My guitar has never gently weeped, but she does suckerpunch me mercilessly at regular intervals. 'She's Gone' is just another example of what we do together every day after I complete my ranch chores at home in Texas, and the MotorCity soulmusic slugfest erupts into spiritual love songs like this. Sammy Hagar said he wasn't interested in writing or singing any more pop songs, so he fell in love with this masterpiece jammout instantly. Clearly Sammy and I deserve each other. And she's gone."  

HAGAR shares of his involvement on the track "She's Gone": "When I first heard Ted's demo of this song, I immediately responded with 'I'm in.' Ted's ripping the guitar like the days of old…very inspiring to sing to a track like that—old-school blues riff, hard edged rock 'n roll on fire!!!"

To coincide with the release of SHUTUP&JAM!, TED has announced that he's packing up and hitting the road. This past weekend (6/7) he joined Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper, Volbeat and other rock titans at the Sweden Rock Festival in Sölvesborg, Sweden. Now he's gearing up for his national headlining tour that kicks off July 3 in Wichita Falls, TX (full tour itinerary below). Ticket info for all shows is available at https://tour.tednugent.com.
