Tim Hicks Releases LR Baggs Presents Session
NASHVILLE, TN (JUNE 17, 2019) … Keeping in the Father’s Day spirit, Tim Hicks and LR Baggs have released an acoustic video of “Throw A Ball” from 2018’s award-winning album, New Tattoo, celebrating the joys of the relationship between father and child. “Throw A Ball” joins acoustic renditions of “1975” and the chart-topping “What a Song Should Do” as the latest session in the LR Baggs Presents series. The session was filmed at Soundcheck in Nashville, with directing and editing by Mike Luckett, camera work by Dave Johnson, and audio mixing by David Brubaker.
Hicks released his fourth full-length studio album New Tattoo in June 2018, followed by the national “Get Loud” headlining tour last fall, where he partnered with PLUS1 to donate $1 from every ticket to the Unison Fund and their work providing counseling and emergency relief services to the Canadian music community. The album’s first single, “Loud”, was licensed by the NHL in North America, and was the #1 most added song at Canadian radio (all formats), its first week of release. The track currently has over 3 million streams – adding to his collective 60 million streams worldwide to date.
Hicks’ current single “What A Song Should Do” soared up the charts, reaching #1 on the Canadian chart last week, as Tim heads into the CMAOntario Awards this weekend with a leading six nominations.
