Premiere: L.A. country artist Sam Outlaw hits the rodeo in 'Angeleno' video

A country singer in Los Angeles can start to identify with the Lone Ranger these days.

Although there’s a long, proud history of country music emanating from the West Coast, especially the vibrant scene that emerged in Bakersfield in the 1950s and '60s, almost half a century later, singer-songwriter Sam Outlaw feels like kindred spirits are relatively few and far between.

That’s the theme he puts across in the new video for the title track from his debut album, “Angeleno,” and no, that’s not a stage name -- it’s a family name on his mother’s side.
