Country music’s rising new family trio The Henningsens have partnered with a classic American brand, Sue Bee Honey®, America’s Honey® - the world’s largest honey marketing cooperative and packer of 100% made-in-the-USA honey. Both have a deep pride in generations of family and honest hard working American-made values and traditions, which are also represented in the band’s current Top 20 debut single “American Beautiful.”
The Henningsens talk about their partnership with Sue Bee Honey® in this exclusive video http://suebee.com/sue_bee_and_the_henningsens
“When we were approached about the partnership with Sue Bee Honey® we were so excited because our farm has been in our family for seven generations,” said Clara Henningsen.
“We have a really large family,” said father Brian Henningsen. “My wife and I have 10 children. We love the multi-generation aspect of farming and music. And that was a really good fit for us in partnering with and becoming friends with the folks at Sue Bee Honey®. They are America’s Honey®, an American company through and through.”
Brian adds, “The farm we live in has been in my family now for 142 years. The history and the roots and ‘grounded-ness’ that that gives you as a family is very special to us. It’s a very special thing, a very American thing, to value that kind of multi-generational relationship and to want to build something that can be passed to your children as a heritage. It’s really cool to be in a venture with someone (Sue Bee Honey) like that.”
“It was a natural fit for The Henningsens and Sue Bee Honey® to form a partnership because The Henningsens are an inspiring American band; Sue Bee Honey® is America’s Honey® and together they are ‘American Beautiful,’” said Lisa Hansel, Assistant Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Sue Bee Honey®. “The Henningsens and Sue Bee Honey® look forward to providing their loyal fans and customers with 100% pure, all-natural AMERICAN music and honey for generations to come.”
The Henningsens, consisting of Brian Henningsen and his son Aaron and daughter Clara, grew up on their 1700-acre working farm, in their family since 1871, raising bees, corn, soybeans and cows. It has offered The Henningsens a home and a livelihood, and at times school, playground, and even birthplace. The Henningsens and the values they represent along with their fresh, vibrant and unique music was a natural alignment for Sue Bee Honey®, who - like the family trio, is committed to providing consumers with the purest high quality American made product - whether it be music or honey.
The Arista Nashville trio, currently on tour with Brad Paisley’s Beat This Summer Tour presented by Cracker Barrel Old Country Store®, is scheduled to release their self-titled digital EP release on May 28. The EP includes their current debut single “American Beautiful,” co-written by Clara, Aaron, and Brian Henningsen and Brett Beavers.
“American Beautiful” is #14 and #17, respectively, this week on the Country Aircheck and Billboard country airplay charts. It is the only new-artist debut single currently inside the Top 25.
