TNT's "Leverage" actor Christian Kane will release his debut Country album called "The House Rules" on Bigger Picture Group, in partnership with Christian's own Outlaw Saints Music, on December 7th. The title track from the album, "The House Rules," was recently released to Country radio and was the 7th most added song on Mediabase Country stations on its official impact date.
"After all these years of hard work I cannot tell you how exciting it is to see how everyone's patience and participation have come together on this album," said Christian. "The overwhelming response we have gotten on 'The House Rules' has been such an honor and I am really looking forward to getting the album in the hands of the fans that have made this all happen."
When putting together the album, Christian worked with well-known producers Bob Ezrin (Aerosmith, Peter Gabriel, Pink Floyd) and Jimmie Lee Sloas (Keith Urban, Garth Brooks, Carrie Underwood), all while finishing the taping of the third season of "Leverage" in which he stars alongside Academy Award winner Timothy Hutton. Timothy also directed the video for "The House Rules," which can be seen on CMT and at CMT.com. A "director's cut" version of the video is available now for purchase on iTunes.
Christian co-wrote 8 of the 11 tracks on the album. The CD also includes "Thinking of You," which Christian performed on the July 18th episode of "Leverage" and helping score the series' biggest audience since its December 2008 premiere.
