Bret Michaels Releases Teaser Video for New Single ‘Girls on Bars’
Bret Michaels offers fans an advance sample of his new album True Grit with a teaser clip from the album's upcoming first single, "Girls on Bars."
As you might expect given its title, the song finds the Poison frontman extolling the virtues of girls who dance on bars, then going on to sing about things that rhyme with "bars" (example: "And girls like boys / Drivin' fast cars"). Michaels co-wrote the tune with songwriter Luke Laird, whose Grammy-winning career includes hits for Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan and many more.
The full-length "Girls on Bars" single and video are due May 12, and marks his first solo release since 2014's "A Beautiful Soul," which he premiered on Oprah's Lifeclass. The song joins a series of recent singles that also includes 2012's "They Don't Make an App For That (The App Song)," originally released on the official Bret Michaels app; on the non-musical front, he's also recently partnered with Overstock.com to debut his Live Bret Michaels line of home decor.
The True Grit album is still waiting for an official release date, but according to Michaels' official site, it will feature no fewer than "21 new and classic Michaels hits."
"It is a very Americana, fun summer song that reminds me how much I love music with a Sublime video feel of hanging with the fans," writes Michaels, who encourages visitors to watch for "the BIGGEST Mother's Day contest ever," an adds, "I am thankful to all the fans for all the great years of getting to make music."
