Celebrity-Driven Headlines & Global News Premieres Country Newcomer Callie Twisselman's"Hung Me On The Line" Music Video
Nashville, TN (October 26, 2015) - Celebrity-driven Headlines & Global News premieres Country newcomer Callie Twisselman's new music video, "Hung Me On The Line,"today, as the young star begins a two week stint as guest host on the popular television show Country Fix through November 8.
The video concept centers on a classic Western theme with modern-day twists. Filmed primarily on the Twisselman family ranch in Cholame, California, additional locations include the Varian Ranch and Parkfield Café (Parkfield, CA), "Hung Me On The Line" features a saloon, horses, grasslands and loose women. A gunshot echoes at the close of the clip, which fades out with shots of Twisselman, playing the cowgirl, riding away. "Hung Me On The Line" is Callie's current single, following her recent Top 30 MusicRow CountryBreakout™ Chart hit, "Breathe."
Producer/Director Sam Schneider (Super Bowl, Thirty Seconds To Mars, Memphis May Fire) assumed acting duties as well. His appearances in the movies "Soldiers Horse," "David and Goliath" and the upcoming "Aquarius" served him well and his experience made for a powerful love interest-pairing with Twisselman, whose previous acting roles includes the movie, "Almost Salinas."
Acting, singing and songwriting aren't Twisselman's only talents: the young entertainer recently launched her own clothing line, Sassy Girl, and is wearing one of the label's signature white dresses in the video's opening scenes. "We're new, and so we're always adding new pieces," explains Callie. "Fall means wonderful neutral and earth tones - and I love fringe, so it's a real mix of stylish colors with a dash of fun." Sassy Girl features dresses, casual tank tops, blouses, vests and sweaters as well.
The busy blonde will enter 100 MILLION households this week via Country Fix; fans can catch Callie on DISH Network, Blue Highways TV, Heartland TV, Angel Two, The Family Channel and AMG. "There is so much going on right now," Twisselman admits. "To have my video debut on Headlines & Global News the same day that the Country Fix shows begin airing is just incredible. Folks are liking my music. I am thrilled, excited, over-the-moon happy."
