2014 Nominee – Music Video of the Year – 24th Annual LA Music Awards
In the summer of 2013, California’s Ry Bradley made a splash when he released his debut single “New Kind of Lonely” off of his EP titled “Freedom Like This.” “New Kind of Lonely” received national airplay from over 100 Country radio stations, which lead to a 3 week showcase of the record on SiriusXM’s break out Country station, “The Highway.” The momentum from “New Kind of Lonely” led to opportunities for Ry to open for Country Music heavyweights, Florida Georgia Line, Kellie Pickler, Jerrod Nieman, Scotty McCreery and later this summer for Miranda Lambert. Ry also toured Northern California with The Lost Trailers and on the Hard Rock Cafe Stage at 2014’s CMA Fest in Nashville.
Ry Bradley is a songwriter raised on Merle Haggard and schooled by The Rolling Stones. “When I was a little kid I thought that Merle was a long lost uncle or something, my family was always playing his stuff and talking about him, but by the time I got my first guitar all I wanted to do was rock, Aerosmith, The Stones, Gn’R… Country songs are about raw real life so thats where my songs come from, but I gotta turn it up and have some fun. It’s always been about the guitar for me, rockin guitar.”
Known for being both a songwriter and a live-wire entertainer, Ry’s songs caught the attention of Nashville publisher Charlie Monk and then Academy of Country Music Award’s Chairman Butch Waugh. This Nashville connection powered Ry’s collaborations with Nashville’s master class of songwriters such as Victoria Shaw, Radney Foster, Doug Johnson, and blues superstar Keb Mo.
Ry has launched a California focused campaign #CaliforniaCountry to coincide with his July 2014 release of his second single “Freedom Like This”, that includes a dynamic music video shot on California’s most inspiring desert vistas, and an online content piece partnered with California country stations. Ry is bringing national awareness to California’s fresh and unique Country Music scene, while also forging his own path as one of the hottest performers.
