Track Now Available At iTunes; Video Debuted Yesterday on CMT LOL Videos
NASHVILLE, March 2, 2012 – Parody singer-songwriter Cledus T. Judd returns with “Double D Cups,” his first major label single in nearly a decade. An uproarious answer to Toby Keith’s smash hit “Red Solo Cup”—with an obvious tweak in subject matter— “Double D Cups” is exactly the kind of instantly memorable and quick-witted track his legions of fans have come to expect from Judd, often called the “Weird Al” Yankovic of country music. “There ain’t a redneck in America that won’t sing along with ‘Double D Cups,’” Judd laughs. “I’ve bought several pair myself, you know.”
The song – which serves as the first single off Judd’s as-yet-untitled album, expected later this year from Warner Music Nashville – is available today at iTunes. Additionally, the video for “Double D Cups” made its world premiere yesterday on CMT’s LOL Videos, a weekly program saluting music videos that will make you laugh out loud.
In 1995, Judd released his debut album, Cledus T. Judd: No Relation, kicking off a career that spans nine studio albums and boasts over two million records sold. His first video, “If Shania Was Mine” (his take on Shania Twain's “Any Man of Mine”) won CMT's 1996 Independent Video Of the Year award, launching his reputation as a must-see video star; 1996’s I Stoled This Record was certified gold; 1998’s Did I Shave My Back For This? hit the Top 20 on the country album charts, and he cracked the country singles chart for the first time in 2000 with “My Cellmate Thinks I’m Sexy.” His albums and videos have featured guest performances by everyone from Buck Owens to Brad Paisley, and he’s thrilled crowds as an opener and emcee for acts like Brooks & Dunn, the Dixie Chicks, and Toby Keith. Judd was recently nominated for a 2012 Academy of Country Music Award as Major Market Personality for his work on the morning airwaves at WQYK in Tampa/St. Petersburg, Florida, alongside partners Dave McKay and Veronica.
