First country music video on Sprint HTC EVO 4G recorded by Lauren Rainey


The creativity and inspiration of country music artist and songwriter Lauren Rainey helped HTC EVO 4G achieve another first.

Launched by Sprint in June 2010, HTC EVO 4G was the first 4G phone in the country. Now it played a starring role in the first country-music video recorded on an HTC EVO 4G.

Rainey’s “Crazy in Love” music video was shot using the phone’s standard settings straight out of the box without enhancements, additional lighting or special effects.

“I chose to shoot the video on a wireless phone to help set myself apart from other artists as I continue to find new ways to get my music out there. I am so proud of how the video turned out and I’m thrilled that Sprint loved it, too. It shows that anyone, anywhere, can record a broadcast-quality video simply and easily using the HTC EVO 4G.”

-David Owens, Sprint vice president-Product Realization

“We have been impressed with her music, and her passion for Sprint is second to none. She understands how the technology and value from Sprint is different from our competitors. She’s proved that you can take an HTC EVO 4G and use it just as it is to create a high-quality video.”

As a former on-air host for Country Music Television’s “Custom Built” and, most recently, a concert tour host for Rascal Flatts, Rainey understands the intense competition in the country music industry. In order to get her music and unique style in front of a national audience she decided it would require new creativity and the use of cutting-edge technology.

“I came up with the concept of shooting the video on the HTC EVO 4G with the help of friends who are creative thinkers, including Bill Filipiak and Jo Hunt from ‘Thinking Bee Productions,’ who shot and edited the video,” Rainey said.

HTC EVO 4G boasts a large 4.3 inch display and 4G speeds that deliver a full, no-compromise Internet and video experience. The smartphone features a handy kickstand built in the back, making it easy to watch videos on-the-go, and two cameras, including an 8.0 megapixel auto-focus camera with HD-capable video camcorder.
