Last week we posted about the new Randy Kohrs video being included in the Pure 12-Pack Countdown on CMT’s new digital music channel, CMT Pure. Randy was pitted against top country entertainers for viewer votes, and he came in number 3 overall in the poll. Only Dwight Yoakam and Blake Shelton’s videos received more votes than Randy’s.
When we made mention of the online vote and suggested that support from the bluegrass community might put them in the running, Randy’s video for Who’s Goin’ With Me wasn’t even in the top 12. What a fine thing to see a bluegrass artist do so well based on grassroots appeal.
Randy asked us to thank everyone who voted for them at CMT.com, and mention that they are once again in the countdown this week, with voting closed on Wednesday (10/31), and the winners announced on Friday (11/2).
Here’s the video, which features Randy and his crack band (The Lites), along with a bevy of bluegrass notables in either feature or cameo roles. Recognize anyone?
