CMT Will Debut The Mini-Movie “MIXTAPE” July 7.
Eric Church will reveal the backstory to his hit song and video, “Springsteen,” with the premiere of MIXTAPE on Saturday, July 7 at 10:15 am ET/PT. The 30-minute short film will air commercial-free on CMT and was the basis for his video. MIXTAPE will repeat on Sunday, July 8 at 8:15 am ET/PT and fans can watch it on demand at CMT.com following the network premiere.
“I am very excited to share MIXTAPE with everyone. I’ve gotten a lot of questions about the music video, asking about the actors, where did the scenes come from, what did they pertain to? Well, this movie will clear everything up. Peter Zavadil crafted an art representation that adds a whole new emotional element to the song and video. In fact, it essentially inspired the video. I’m honored to show it on CMT.” -Church
To go along with the premiere, Church will host an online contest for one lucky fan to win two tickets to see and meet him live on his Blood, Sweat and Beers Tour. Fans must watch to win, making note of the full list of songs and instrumental tracks in order as they appear in MIXTAPE.
