February 3, 2012 - Nashville, TN - CMT hosted the the multi-platform world premiere of Jessie James’ new video, “When You Say My Name”, directed by Kristin Barlowe, today during music hours from 6 a.m. – Noon, ET/PT. The video also debuted on CMT.com and CMT Pure, the network’s digital all-music channel.
James’ first single for Show Dog – Universal Music, was produced by label president Mark Wright and released digitally on iTunes this week with plans to launch at country radio later this year.
A larger-than-life talent in a petite package, James has been ready for her close-up since she was two, when the well-traveled military brat, born a fiery Aries in a military field hospital in Italy, began singing into a toy microphone and tape recorder, a gift from her mom. By the time she was nine, she was composing her own songs on a plastic guitar and performing in front of large audiences.
