McAlister Kemp Release "Cold Beer, Hot Women" Video


When McAlister Kemp’s new album Country Proud was released last month, not only did it debut at #1 on the ARIA Country Album chart, but as high as #18 on the all genre album sales chart as well.

‘Cold Beer, Hot Women’ follows the success of the ‘Country Proud’ single… which is fast becoming Australian Country Music’s new anthem!

‘Cold Beer, Hot Women’ has already become a fan favourite at McAlister Kemp live shows.

Drew McAlister and Troy Kemp are very honest in their assessment of the song…

“The title kinda says it all really… a fun, no holes barred, down and dirty, country rock song with a blues flavour,” say McAlister Kemp.

The music video for ‘Cold Beer, Hot Women’ features 2011 Italian Playboy Playmate of the Year Lauren Vickers, plus other popular cameo appearances.

McAlister Kemp will appear on the 2012 CMC Rocks The Hunter television special, airing nationally on CMC from April 21.

The 2011 Golden Guitar and CMC Music Award winners will then perform at Rooty Hill RSL on April 28, the Dubbo Show on May 18 and the Mullewa Muster & Rodeo on June 2.

The official Country Proud Tour then begins at the end of June with shows in Canberra, Stawell, Macksville, Belmont, Cooma, Goulburn, Bathurst and Hallam.
