Watch Runaway June’s Carefree Video for “Lipstick” Starring “Bachelorette” favorite Luke Pell

Newcomers Runaway June —Naomi Cooke, Hannah Mulholland and Jennifer Wayne—have been making a splash in country music with their current single, “Lipstick.” Now the girls have drawn attention to themselves with the release of their footloose and fancy-free new video for the single.

The video, directed by Peter Zavidil, finds The Bachelorette alum, Luke Pell—Season 12 with JoJo Fletcher —as the male lead and at the center of the ladies attention.

“We wanted something carefree, about having fun with no worries and finding someone who makes you happy,” Runaway June tells People. “That Thelma & Louise vibe fit in with it, and Luke was more than perfect for that. He’s not really a love interest, per se, but more of a drifter we pick up and go on an epic adventure with.”

The trio has been front and center lately appearing at the recent 50th Annual CMA Awards as Carrie Underwood’s background vocal group and being named 2017 CMT Next Women of Country. “Lipstick” is currently in the Top 40 of the Mediabase Country Airplay chart, making the ladies the first female trio in 10 years to earn a Top 40 hit.

Check out their new video for “Lipstick.”

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
