Nashville, TN. (Rust Records) - The PovertyNeck Hillbillies are set to team up with the world champion Pittsburgh Steelers Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, 'Big Ben,' to shoot the video for their latest single 'Mr. Right Now,' from their self-titled debut album (Rust Records). As the 'official band' of the Pittsburgh Steelers and a personal favorite of Roethlisberger the guys could not be happier to have him star in their video, which will be shot on Tuesday, July 18th at Heinz
Field, home of the World Champion
The PovertyNeck Hillbillies have had quite a ride since signing with Rust Records. Between releasing their self-titled album June 6th, which debuted at No 7 at the Billboard Heat Seekers Chart and No 31 on the Billboard Country Albums sales chart, and claiming the No 3 spot as the top selling artist at the 2006 CMA Music Festival the guys have shown no signs of slowing down. Now they are set to shoot the video for their new single 'Mr. Right Now,' which was released to radio June 16th.
The PovertyNeck Hillbillies' strong ties to Pittsburgh made asking 'Big Ben' to star in their debut video seem only natural. Roethlisberger agreed, not only because he is a fan of their music, but because of his profound respect for the groups' hard work and determination to succeed as musicians.
'It's really exciting for us to have Ben in our first video,' said The PovertyNeck Hillbillies. 'We are huge fans of the Steelers, and Ben, so we are really looking forward to making our first video a truly memorable one.'
