The video for “We Don’t Sleep” came out even better than I ever imagined. I’m really proud of this single and knew the video had to really capture the emotion behind it. Brian and I talked a lot about what we needed to get the right mood and I think he nailed it! I’m really excited to share this project with the fans,” Strickland said.
The video, shot and directed by Brian Harstine (Dolly Parton, Ke$ha), perfectly brings to life the emotional and steamy track, which is the first released song from his upcoming album, “CALIFORNIA DREAMIN”. The video was shot locally in various locations in Nashville, including the popular Urban Cowboy Bed & Breakfast in East Nashville.
The expressive single was co-produced by Sean Giovanni and written by the successful Tommy Cecil, Jaida Dreyer, Jody Stevens and Cole Tyler. The sultry song displays Strickland’s widespread influences that provide listeners with a “structured depth of a Pop/Country record along with the emotional impact of a live band feel,” according to Giovanni.

Strickland is no stranger to the spotlight. The now country singer songwriter first got his start as an American Quarter Horse Champion, riding horses that would ultimately get him a world title. In the music world, however, his long list of accomplishments includes performances at some of the biggest venues in the United States, sold-out shows during CMA Music Festival week, and high-profile openings for many of today’s biggest stars (Jamey Johnson, 3 Doors Down, The Kentucky Headhunters).
Additionally, Strickland’s latest single, “We Don’t Sleep” has been featured on Spotify’s Wild Country playlist and has racked up over 100,000 streams so far. “We Don’t Sleep” is available now on Spotify, Apple Music and Google Play.
