Hot Chelle Rae is out with a brand new hit album, single, and celebrating an American Music Award for “New Artist of the Year.” Walmart Risers sat down with the guys to get the inside info, discussing their collaboration with New Boyz on ‘I Like It Like That’, the organic filming of the song’s music video at a Walmart parking lot, the inspiration for their ‘Tonight Tonight’ single, how all the songs on the ‘Whatever’ album are a story of the ride they’ve been on the past year, how the band met, an internet imposter inspiring the band’s name, touring with The Script, and keeping in contact with fans via Twitter.
“We said that ‘Tonight Tonight’ was inspired by one night of being crazy, and ‘I Like It Like That’ was basically like a year of those nights,” frontman Ryan Follesé explained. “Nashville is like a really fun town where we’re from, it’s filled with honky tonks and music and tons of musicians, and it really is a testament to the way that we live and how we are and how much fun we like to have when we’re not working our butts off.”
The interview, with Ryan and guitarist Nash Overstreet doing all the talking and bassist Ian Keaggy and drummer Jamie Follesé looking on, at soundcheck.walmart.com has since been removed. Check out more photos from the visit after the cut. (more…)

Hot Chelle Rae performed ‘Bleed’ for a private group of Q92 contest winners on July 27th for the Canton, Ohio station’s “Stripped Down Concert Series”. The song is off the Nashville, Tennessee pop rock group’s debut album ‘Lovesick Electric’, out now on Jive Records. Watch the acoustic performance via YouTube below.
Tatiana Diana of YoungHollywood.com hung out with Hot Chelle Rae to chat about their debut album ‘Lovesick Electric’, the story behind their band name, growing up in a musical household, how their hometown Nashville is a great scene for rock bands, and more.
“All of our parents are musicians,” frontman Ryan Follesé said. “We kinda grew up in musican households and we never really pushed to do music, but when it’s constantly around you, you kind of absorb it and it just becomes a way of life.”
“We are super proud of it,” guitarist Nash Overstreet said of the band’s LP. “Since R.K. [Follese] and I met, we’ve been working on songs for it. Doing about 20 at a time, written 20 more, I think we got to 60 or 70 before we chose the 11 that are on it.”
Watch the interview below.
