Ted Nugent Streams New Holiday-Appropriate Song, ‘I Love My BBQ’
Stream a holiday-appropriate new song, as Ted Nugent releases “I Love My BBQ” just in time for the Fourth of July weekend.
The track is part of Nugent’s first new studio album in eight years. ‘Shutup&Jam,’ which features guest spots by Sammy Hagar and longtime Nugent collaborator Derek St. Holmes, is due on July 8 via Frontiers Records.
Nugent recently talked to Ultimate Classic Rock about the inspiration for songs like ‘I Love My BBQ,’ going in depth on his in-the-moment process: “I create every song I’ve ever written, screaming and jamming in my living room like an idiot. Or backstage or at a rehearsal with the band while the band’s tuning up and they’ll typically come up to me and go, ‘What the f— is that? That’s awesome!’ and I’ll go, ‘I don’t know, I’ve never played it before, but it is awesome!'”
Nugent is also kicking off a national tour tonight (July 3) in Wichita Falls, Texas, with dates continuing through August.
