Dalton, GA (July 23, 2014) Don't miss out on Channing Eleton's hot new video release in support of his fresh radio single “Big Top” which is on his new independent CD release, Fredericksburg. This song has been in the making for quite a few years. It gives a southern sound with Channing's Gospel piano playing and singing causing it to be a smooth listen. The video will remind you of the old days when a big top tent and metal chairs were a sure sign of a tent revival where many miracles were expected to happen.
Eleton said "As you can see, I had a pretty vivid imagination growing up. I was fascinated with all the details of those old tents and camp-meetings I attended as a kid." Channing continued stating "I actually began writing the song back in June of 2008. I had been invited to come play at a tent revival that was actually out 'on the county line' of where I live. It brought back all these great memories I remembered as a kid...the music, the preaching, playing in the sawdust, standing in line for cotton candy and ice cream... I could go on and on."
Channing also commented “The people in the video are friends and family of mine. The Preacher, David Cummings, is a close friend to my wife and I. He actually introduced me to my wife 17 years ago, of which we've been married 15. This is a fun song and video that will have some reminiscing. For others, I'll be introducing for the very first time this very unique slice of Americana."
This magnificent video was produced and directed by Kim White of ViewFinders, Inc.
