I’ve always taken a hands on approach to my career as an artist. However, this project took it to a whole new level. My good friend, Justin Mayotte “Squeaks” shot and edited the video footage from one of our live performances at The Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville, TN. I owe Squeaks an atta boy for the amazing job he did on this video.
When it came time to tackle the lyric portion of the video, I decided I’d take a swing at it myself. I knew absolutely nothing about how to make a lyric video. So, why not? Right? 🙂
My decision to take on this project led to many late nights and early mornings. I spent every spare minute of my creative energy learning a new software and making it up as I went. There were several moments during the process I thought, this just ain’t gonna happen.
However, thanks to countless YouTube tutorials and the opportunity to learn on the job, we ended up with what is now the official lyric video for “Tough.”
I couldn’t be happier to share another product of my creative soul with you. I hope you dig it and share it with all of your friends! Thanks for giving me the opportunity to continue to find new ways to express myself through music. Your support means more than you know. As always, thank you doesn’t say enough.

Doug is teaming up with fellow South Carolina naive, Cody Webb to launch The Palmetto Roots Tour presented by Classic Carolinas. The tour is scheduled to kick off March 02 in Myrtle Beach, SC and will highlight several hard ticket shows across the Palmetto state.
Doug McCormick releases his brand new single, “Good Beers Left,” to all digital outlets and streaming services. The track, produced by Marshall Altman (Frankie Ballard, Aaron Watson), is the follow-up to his Sweet Dixie Memory EP, and is the next step in introducing his brand of #mccormickcountry to the masses.
He says of the new track, “I’m excited to continue to tell my story with this song. I feel like it reveals a side of my artistry I haven’t really shown before. Yeah, I’m a simple, laid back kind of guy, but I do like to cut loose from time to time. That’s what this song is all about. For me, ‘Good Beers Left’ is a tip of the hat to some incredible memories, and even more than that, it’s a toast to all of the good times ahead.”
Earlier this year, McCormick enjoyed a 10-week run in the Top 3 of CMT’s 12 Pack Countdown with his video for “Dirt Road Dancin'” from the Sweet Dixie Memory EP. Shortly after, he entered the studio to record “Good Beers Left,” a song he co-wrote with fellow Nashville songwriter, Thomas Archer (“Hurricane – Luke Combs”).
A South Carolina native, Doug moved to Nashville and landed a songwriting deal with BMG/Chrysalis in 2013, and has steadily built a following through grassroots touring and his dynamic live performances around the region and beyond. With this new release, Doug’s profile continues to rise.
