Ry climbed to new heights during the shooting of his newly released video for “Freedom Like This!”
Ry debuted his new music video to his loyal fans for his upcoming single titled “Freedom Like This” which is set for public release on August 11th! This picturesque video directed by Stokes Nielson and a crew from Nashville, TN was shot across various locales in Southern California.
The video immerses viewers into the soul of the song “leaving it all behind for love,” as you ride along for a journey in a “64 Mustang” convertible with stops along some of California’s most dramatic desert vistas.
Ry’s behind the scenes thoughts “I was balancing in boots on the edge of this sheer cliff for my guitar solo, the director kept telling me to rock out more. Every time I did, I came closer to falling over backwards. But in the end it was worth it as the shot turned out great!”
The single “Freedom Like This” is available today for pre-ordered on iTunes and will be officially released on Monday, August 11th.
Fantasy Springs Casino in the California desert hit record highs when Ry Bradley hit the stage with his smokin’ hot performance. After facing six talented competitors, Ry Bradley won the 33rd annual Kix Hot Country “Country Showdown!”

Ry finished the song with a powerful guitar solo that had him playing his guitar held high behind his head as the crowd erupted in a thunderous applause.
Ry’s final song of the evening was his upcoming single “Freedom Like This” due to be released on August 11th. Ry added an extended guitar outro that took the crowd right into the heartbeat of the song and to the tips of their toes.

The final judge Jules Hamland simply asked, “Why are you not famous yet?” When given a chance to respond to the judges, Ry humbly stated that he was “just happy to be there and grateful to be a part of the event” and then joked to Ms. Hamland that “my mom keeps asking me the same question.”
