American Express x country legend Tim McGraw x Bennett Miller. That's a formula for a good time.
All three will come together to "bring it" in NYC on September 16 for the next American Express Unstaged show.
The credit card and the country singer have teamed up with the award-winning director for the ever-popular live stream music series American Express Unstaged, in partnership with Vevo and YouTube.
McGraw's September 16 concert from New York City's Hammerstein Ballroom at 9PM ET will be directed by Miller and then live streamed at amexunstaged.com.
It's a HUGE promo opp for a country legend, who is always amazing live.
The performance is timed around the release date of McGraw's newest album, Sundown Heaven Town, available on First Play on iTunes Radio, presented by American Express, beginning September 9. First Play on iTunes Radio allows fans to listen to full-length albums a week prior to release.
"Bennett is such an incredibly talented director and I'm excited that we get to work together on the next Unstaged," said Tim McGraw. "I have a tremendous amount of respect for him and his work. I know with his unique, creative point of view, this will be a really special experience for me and my fans on the day my album comes out."
McGraw and Miller's collaboration represents the 15th installment of the innovative live stream music series American Express Unstaged. Launched in the summer of 2010, American Express Unstaged showcases some of the music industry's most breakthrough artists playing at landmark venues around the world, while tapping some of today's most influential filmmakers to direct the live streams and using digital and social media to connect the online audience to the live shows in unexpected ways.
Award-winning director Bennett Miller (Moneyball, Capote and more) is one of contemporary film's most influential and unique storytellers. He will be tasked with capturing the excitement and emotion of McGraw's performance through an engaging digital viewing experience.
"This is a different kind of experience for me and I'm really looking forward to it," said Miller. "Tim is a great talent and a genuine person and I'm looking forward to shooting this show in a way that will allow his fans to get a little closer and appreciate him a bit more directly than they might ever have before."
We would love it if Mrs. Tim McGraw, aka country singer Faith Hill, would make a cameo for the event! That would rule, right?
