Cat Footwear Signs Tyler Hilton As Earthmover

ROCKFORD, Mich., May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cat Footwear is excited to announce a new addition to their Earthmovers Campaign: recording artist, Tyler Hilton.  In keeping with the Caterpillar Inc. brand, the Earthmovers Campaign celebrates individuals who positively impact the world around them and who "move the earth" in their everyday lives.  Dedicated, confident, and bold, an Earthmover is an individual who embodies the brand's tradition of hard work and fearlessness.

A native of sunny Palm Springs, California, Tyler Hilton is a singer, songwriter and actor.  The son of an electrical contractor and a teacher, Hilton grew up in a musically inclined family, where he took to playing guitar and singing at a very young age.  After releasing an independent self-titled album in 2004, he was signed to Warner Bros. Records and put out his first major-label album the same year he made his acting debut starring in the CW's "One Tree Hill," and later as Elvis Presley in the Johnny Cash biopic, "Walk The Line."

Yet, while his cover songs appeared on the Grammy Award-winning soundtrack for "Walk The Line," and his originals aired on "One Tree Hill", Hilton had yet to release another full-length album.  After a series of attempted new releases were thwarted by the major label scene, Hilton opted to leave his record deal to finally release his much-anticipated third studio album in 2012, "Forget The Storm," through his own label, Hooptie Tune Records, marking his first independent full-length release in 8 years.  Today, Hilton is busy touring the U.S., Canada and Europe, sharing the new material with his fans.

"When we first heard about Tyler's story," says Kelly Ballou, USA Marketing Manager for Cat Footwear, "We loved his independent, pioneering spirit, and that he refused to let anyone dictate how or what his musical career should be.  Tyler's boldness really personifies what an Earthmover is."

"When I learned that to Cat Footwear, an Earthmover is someone who inspires the world through dedication and commitment to their craft, I was really honored," says Hilton. "It has been a challenging couple of years and I had to take a big risk and leave a lot behind to start my own label. Without all the rules and red tape, I'm now able to write honest Americana Rock n' Roll and be much closer to who I really am.   It's so cool to be acknowledged for that."
