NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Following the exclusive premiere on Whiskey Riff, mother-daughter duo Belles & Whistles announce the release of the music video for their latest single "Fire" today, Friday, May 12. Featuring lead singer and daughter Kelli as the protagonist getting "burned" by a troublesome love interest, the music video for "Fire" shows just how intense and explosive a relationship with a "bad boy" can be. Complete with scenes of uncontrollable flames and the Belles & Whistles adorning fire suits in safeguard of their hearts, the video is a powerful display of the play on words "never play with fire."

While achieving national attention, the Omaha-native duo makes sure to maintain close connections with their local community. In the wake of a tragic police shooting and in honor of International Firefighters' Day, Belles & Whistles performed "Fire" at the Council Bluffs fire station last Thursday, which helped to raise spirits and thank the first responders for their service. In honor of Mother's Day, the duo performed "Fire" live today on their local CBS affiliate KMTV’s “Morning Blend” and will perform "Fire" live on Sunday, May 14, at 7pm at a special hometown show at the Slowdown in Omaha, Nebraska.

About Belles & Whistles:

Omaha-natives, Kelli and Jaymie Jones, formed Belles & Whistles in 2013, but the dynamic duo started playing music together during Kelli's childhood. The mother-daughter act, known for their rich harmonies and meaningful lyrics, are a little bit country and a little bit rock 'n' roll, with Jaymie bringing her roots from the 1999 group Mulberry Lane (formerly of Refuge/MCA Records). The group's hit song, "Harmless," placed Top 25 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart. After Mulberry Lane came to an end, Jaymie began to play on her own locally with Kelli soon singing backup. Now, Belles & Whistles have shared the stage with country music mainstays, such as Lee Brice, Old Dominion, Brett Eldridge, Kenny Rogers, and more and have won the title of "Best Country Artist" for the Omaha Entertainment & Arts Awards three years running. Their debut EP, Look Up, was recorded at the prestigious Legends Studio in Nashville and produced by Dan Frizsell (Lee Brice, American Young).
