Stevens shares, “For someone that has dreamt of recording and releasing music for over a decade, to say I’m excited is an understatement. I feel like the songs we selected for the album are a real reflection of my personality—they range from fun-loving to serious and everything in between.

TATE STEVENS’ HOMETOWN HONORS HIM ON WATER TOWER

Syco/RCA Nashville recording artist Tate Stevens is experiencing a lot of firsts this year following his first place finish on FOX’s The X Factor, including landing a record deal, releasing new single “Power of a Love Song” to country radio, and his upcoming April 23 self-titled debut album release. Now Stevens can claim a new “first” as his hometown honors him with an impressive 160′ City of Belton water tower, freshly painted with “Home of Tate Stevens, Live the Dream!”

Stevens, a former blue collar road worker for the city, always displayed such appreciation for his small hometown while pursuing his life-long dream of becoming a country music star on The X Factor. Viewers were captivated by this unassuming Southern gentleman with the powerhouse vocals. Among those viewers was a contingent of Belton residents, who led the charge to raise 100% the funds for the water tower repainting and dedication.

“It’s moments like this that really make me smile,” shares Stevens. “The support I’ve felt from the community is incredible, and I hope I can continue to make them proud. I’m so incredibly humbled by this honor.”

Belton officials unveiled the landmark, located near Stevens’ home off Interstate 49 and M-58 Highway on Sunday, March 31 with the formal dedication, which Stevens will attend, scheduled for Monday, April 22, with media call-time at 10:30a.m. CDT. Stevens will perform a sold out show in Kansas City, Mo. at the Midland by AMC on Sunday, but fans can still purchase a limited number of tickets to his Monday night performance.

THE X FACTOR WINNER TATE STEVENS TO UNVEIL DEBUT MUSIC VIDEO ON FEB. 10

New Music Video for “Holler If You’re With Me” to be Featured in a Pepsi Commercial During The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards; Song Available for Download Beginning February 5 on iTunes

Belton, Missouri native Tate Stevens captivated viewers worldwide on FOX’s The X Factor Season 2 with his emotive and powerful country vocal performances—never placing less than second throughout the entire competition. Now, from appearances on one star-studded stage to the next, Stevens will unveil a first look of his debut music video for the song “Holler If You’re With Me,” as part of a Pepsi commercial during The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards on February 10 on CBS at 8 p.m. EST/PST. The new music is merely part of the grand prize awarded to Stevens in addition to his $5 million recording contract with Syco Music/RCA Nashville. Additionally, the song, “Holler If You’re With Me,” will be available for download on iTunes beginning Tuesday, February 5.

Starting out the competition as a 37-year-old blue collar construction worker with humble roots and a seemingly far-fetched dream of becoming a country music superstar, Stevens’ recent win on The X Factor proved to the world that in fact, dreams do come true. “Things are moving very fast since the finale of X Factor, and we’re already laying down tracks for my new album that will be out this spring. I truly feel so blessed to have been given this opportunity,” Stevens says.

Viewers of the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards can expect the new Pepsi music video “Holler If You’re With Me” to be what Stevens calls “a feel good anthem song,” and the accompanying video to encompass the picturesque scenery of Simi Valley, Calif. “Having chased this dream for nearly a decade, I was certainly familiar with the concept of a music video, but I had no idea what to expect. In spite of the 50 mph winds, everyone on the set had a great time. It’s a party song and so it was only fitting that we threw a party! I’m sure more than a few folks watching the GRAMMYs at home can relate,” Stevens says beaming.

As spring approaches, Stevens is gearing up for the release of his debut country album, which he says will have an overall upbeat, feel-good tone. A true singer’s singer and songwriter, he plans to write many of the songs on the record, teaming up with Rhett Akins, Ben Hayslip, Shane Minor and David Lee Murphy. Renowned Nashville producer, Blake Chancey, will produce the record.

Included in his co-writes for the album, Stevens recently collaborated with his long-time idol, country singer/songwriter Joe Diffie. “The moment I sat down in that room with Joe it hit me – this is my life now, this is my chance to follow in the path of my heroes and make my own unique mark on the genre – and that’s exactly what I plan to do.”

Hey TateNation!

I am so excited to go home for Christmas. My whole family is here for the finale this week, but when it¹s over we’ll be headed home to celebrate the holidays together. I plan to be with my family and my 2 dogs, Jake and Joe. I miss them so much!

We will be headed to visit my parents, my brothers and all the family on my wife’s side. A Stevens holiday involves eating lots of awesome food and watching Bowl games, but we also have very special tradition where my wife, kids and I donate our time to Harvester’s Food Drive and adopt a family in need. My kids came up with the idea for this tradition, and it has become something very important to our family. My son told me that half of what I spend on him should be spent on someone who needs it most. I¹m so proud of him!

I’m looking forward to recharging my batteries, but then I plan to get to work in the first part of the year! Bring on the New Year! I’m excited for what’s coming! Thank you for all the support TateNation. See you in 2013!
