OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO OUT NOW
NASHVILLE, TENN. (March 24, 2019) – Big Loud Records singer-songwriter Larry Fleet is bringing the booze, the tunes, and the good times in the “Mix ‘Em With Whiskey” video, out today.
Rolling Stone had the first look at the clip, which features Fleet kicking off a soulful serenade in a smoky bar, before supplying sips of whiskey to those around him. The special rye whiskey – branded “Papa Fleet”— serves to break up arguments, take the edge off, and cure the blues of the bar’s patrons. Directed by Justin Clough, the video was filmed 50 miles outside of Nashville at a roadside bar in Santa Fe, TN.

“Mix ‘Em With Whiskey” – penned by Ryan Beaver, Rodney Clawson, Andrew DeRoberts, and Adam Hambrick – is “built around a reverb-soaked, rising-and-falling electric guitar riff that nods to Sixties soul and cruises along at a relaxed pace.” (Rolling Stone).
“The first time I heard this song, I was immediately drawn to the soulfulness and groove of it and knew I had to record it,” Fleet shared with Rolling Stone. “It has such a unique, fun opening guitar riff that I love playing live.”
“Mix ‘Em With Whiskey” is featured on Fleet’s Big Loud Records debut WORKIN’ HARD, produced by Joey Moi. WORKIN’ HARD garnered critical acclaim upon its November release, with American Songwriter praising the album “reflects Fleet’s character — easy going, passionate and hard-working…,” while Fleet scored a coveted spot on 2020 artist to watch lists including Pandora and Sounds Like Nashville.
Previously sharing the bill with Jon Pardi and Willie Nelson, Fleet hit the road in early 2020 for Jake Owen’s DOWN TO THE TIKI TONK TOUR, and “instantly impressed a crowd that chanted his name throughout the night” (Green Bay Press Gazette).
