Steve Richard World Premiers New Video For "Toothbrush"
Force/MP Entertainment recording artist Steve Richard is excited to announce the world premiere of the brand new video for his new single, “Toothbrush.” Fans can catch a glimpse of the new clip on GAC TV online here. The video will also debut this week in "Breaking Out" on The Country Network .
The whimsical tune about how love really all starts with a toothbrush is captured perfectly in the new clip, a sweet, stop-action story that follows a date as it turns into forever and eventually a brand new family. Shawn Foster at Tacklebox Films directed the new video, which features the main character in the story anxiously preparing for a first date, brushing his teeth as he anticipates how the evening will go with a girl he is clearly smitten with. Following the couple’s story as their relationship blossoms, the charming clip illustrates how the biggest things in life often start out from the little things and come full circle as we watch the couple – who are now a happy family -- later helping their adorable little boy up onto a stool at the sink to brush his own teeth with his new toothbrush.
“Toothbrush” has already taken off at radio in a big way, becoming a Number One hit on the Power Source chart and moving steadily up the Music Row chart. The single was recently the Hot Shot Debut on the Billboard Indicator chart as well.
The tune is the lead single from Steve’s brand new release, which is due out later this year.
Steve has been hard at work in the studio putting the finishing touches on the new release, which will include an exciting new collaboration with Laura Dodd, the 2010 ICM New Artist of the Year.

"Our visit with Steve was a lot of fun! We even gave him a piece of "snicker pie" so he would have a reason to need a "Toothbrush" afterwards.
