Christian Kane Releases New Single "Let Me Go" To Country Radio


On the heels of the season-four premiere of the hit television series “Leverage” on TNT, Christian Kane releases his much-anticipated second single, “Let Me Go,” on July 11, 2011, announced today by Bigger Picture Group. The song, produced by Bob Ezrin (The Wall and Kiss's Destroyer) and Jimmie Lee Sloas (Reba McEntire, Lee Ann Womack and Danny Gokey), and written by hitmakers Casey Beathard (“Ten Rounds With Jose Cuervo” and “Drinkin’ Bone” by Tracy Byrd and “Beer Man” by Trent Willmon) and Tom Shapiro ("You Look Good In My Shirt," recorded by Keith Urban and "Living And Living Well," recorded by George Strait), is a classic country power ballad that tells a vivid and relatable story of the challenges and surprises that come with being in love. “Let Me Go” was one of only three songs on the album that Kane did not have a hand in writing.

“This song spoke to me [through] personal experiences and gives me chills to this day [when I sing it]. I followed Casey Beathard around town begging to get this song. He finally said yes and it fit perfectly into [the story of my] journey while [also] being utterly relatable to anyone who has selfishly, unselfishly let someone go for the better of both. I had to have this on the album for the simple fact [that] it was the missing piece to the eclectic, yet one page puzzle, that is ‘The House Rules,’” said Kane.

The moving lyrics coupled with Kane’s powerful narrative vocals paint an authentic picture of a couple on the brink of big changes while capturing both vantage points; the effect is simultaneously heartbreaking and hopeful.

Though the native Oklahoma country singer is most well-known for his role as “Eliot” on TNT’s “Leverage,” where he choreographs all his own fight scenes, he dedicated time to focus his attention on his first love: music and his budding music career.

“I’m from Oklahoma, and country music has always been first and foremost in my heart,” said Kane. “I am truly fortunate to be able to do something that I love and to have such supportive fans.”

Kane recently wrapped filming the music video for “Let Me Go,” which will debut later this month. Shot on location in Los Angeles, the video was directed by legendary director, Roman White, whose credits include Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Reba McEntire, Justin Bieber and Martina McBride, as well as the 2011 CMT Music Award for “Video of the Year” for Taylor Swift’s hit “Mine.”

  2. I love storytelling songs, and especially those with a twist. Though Chris didn't write this song, one of his many talents is knowing a good thing when he sees/hears it, and I think this hit close enough to home to fit right in with the story of his life. His talent for feeling/living the stories he sings shines through brilliantly on this recording, in which he manages to portray both sides of the relationship emotionally and vocally without falling into the trap of going falsetto. Both characters are litterally given voice, each showing equal vulnerability and strength. I can't wait to see the video, I know it will be wonderful, though in my mind the scene will always take place on a dirt path in the middle of an Oklahoma field!
