NASHVILLE, TN (July 30, 2021) – The official music video for Ben Gallaher’s anthemic debut single, “Every Small Town” world-premieres today (7/30) on CMT and CMT Music.
Directed by David Abbott (John Rich, Lady A), the music video for “Every Small Town” celebrates small town life and the people who live it.
“‘Every Small Town’ is a song about the American spirit. It’s about being proud of who you are, where you’re from and where you live. I feel like everyone has a little bit of small town in them. It’s a song about character and values. We wanted to do a video that showcases just that,” explains Gallaher.
The official video - shot on the outskirts of Nashville - closely follows the storyline and lyrics of the song. It also features a few cameos including Ben’s wife Monica Gallaher as the “girl,” Ben’s real-life friends as the “cold beer crowd,” and even the first truck Ben ever bought when he was just 16-years-old (HINT: It’s the broken-down truck on the side of the road)!

Last month, the triple-threat singer, songwriter and guitarist released his debut Quartz Hill EP, Every Small Town. Gallaher co-wrote each of the five songs on the project which was produced by acclaimed music producers Mickey Jack Cones (Jason Aldean, Thomas Rhett) and Derek George (Randy Houser, Joe Nichols).
Sounds Like Nashville praised the project as containing “highly relatable stories and themes” calling Gallaher “a promising star in the format” while American Songwriter has declared Gallaher as an artist possessing “an authenticity that shines through.”
Gallaher has already earned TWO MILLION YouTube streams of the EP’s title track “Every Small Town,” which is also the rising star’s first single on Quartz Hill Records. The milestone comes ahead of the song’s impact date at country radio this Fall.

About Ben Gallaher:
A self-taught musician with a strong reverence for guitar masters, Gallaher’s songs are autobiographical anthems of growing up in the small town of Camp Hill, Pennsylvania that radiate a passion for the lyric-driven country music that influenced him. The burgeoning star’s vocals exude a smoky texture reflective of the backwoods bars in which the young artist honed his unbridled stage craft, driving to the Eastern corridor to perform each weekend while pursuing a degree in Entertainment Industry Studies at Nashville’s Belmont University. The Quartz Hill Records artist has earned a fast-growing fanbase due to his commanding guitar prowess and energetic live shows while opening for the likes of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Hank Williams Jr., Blake Shelton, 3 Doors Down, Lee Brice, and has toured the Pennsylvania State Prisons for ten years on his annual, headlining Prison Tour.
Gallaher’s debut EP, Every Small Town, is available now. He is currently in the studio recording his debut Quartz Hill Records album with acclaimed music producers Mickey Jack Cones (Jason Aldean, Thomas Rhett) and Derek George (Randy Houser, Joe Nichols).
