For the follow-up to his top 20 hit “Trailer Hitch,” Kristian was eager to show his romantic side. “When you are loved by someone, it changes you forever,” he muses. “I decided to write a song to celebrate that.” “Light Me Up” was co-written with Jesse Rice, one of the men behind Florida Georgia Line’s smash “Cruise.”

Currently on a two-week tour of U.S. military bases in Japan, Kristian returns to the States in time to cover the nightly concerts at CMA Music Festival for BBC2 Radio.
