Country star Katie Armiger has dedicated her new single, “Safe,” from her chart-topping album Fall Into Me, to our nation’s first responders creating a supporting campaign,Project Feel Safe, to honor the brave men and women who keep us safe. In addition to TV markets across the country that have supported Project Feel Safe, including the nationally syndicated “Daytime,” FOX 411’s “Country Roundup” and RFD-TV’s “Rural Evening News” and “Market Day Report,” Armiger is scheduled for national television appearances in support her new single and campaign on CNN’s Headline News and FOX & Friends. Supporters can tune in to HLN on Friday, January 24, during the four o’clock hour, then on Monday, January 27, fans can tune into FOX & Friends; cable’s No.1 morning show.
“Safe,” co-written by Armiger and Mallary Hope, is a song about love and the secure feeling one receives when in a positive relationship, but for Armiger its meaning transformed into an expression of gratitude towards the men and women who risk their lives to make others feel safe. Armiger explains the creation of her Project Feel Safe campaign, stating, “The core meaning of the new single, ‘Safe,’ is about love and feeling protected. When we decided we wanted to do something to give back to our nation’s first responders, that was what I wanted to support because it is so dear to all of us after all of the events that took place this past year.”
The music video, posted on YouTube less than two-weeks ago, has gone viral with over 80 views per minute. Directed by Justin Baldoni, the video has served as a powerful platform to build a tribute to our nation’s first responders and their families. Feeling more like a scene on the evening news with no band performance or singing, the music video dramatically depicts the everyday sacrifices of our nation’s first responders. To stay true to the imminent danger faced daily, Armiger featured real firefighters from the Long Beach Fire Department in the video. The music video for “Safe” has also been added to video networks including Great American Country, CMT Pure, CMT.com and ZUUS Country.
Katie Armiger has been touring fire stations across the country, already making stops at fire departments inMoore, OK, Boston, MA, Union Beach, NJ, Lindenhurst, NY and her most recent visit in Perryville, MD. Armiger will continue her Project Feel Safe Tour throughout 2014 to personally thank first responders and their families. These visits and their heroic personal stories are shared on the Project Feel Safecampaign’s website at www.YouMakeMeFeelSafe.com. Armiger encourages the public to watch these videos and learn more.
The Project Feel Safe campaign is designed to give the general public an opportunity to give thanks and share their support for the brave men and women in their community. Supporters are encouraged to use#projectfeelsafe on their social media sites to share their own personal stories, photos, and messages of thanks for first responders.
