1406302748000-Jenny-Risher-Photography3 Ted Nugent calls “Everything Matters” from his new SHUTUP&JAM! album a “grooving, classic R&B song.”

The song’s sepia-toned video, premiering at USA TODAY, gives fans a good, long look at the guitarist’s beloved Gibson Byrdland and his rhythm section, bassist Greg Smith and drummer Greg Brown. Derek St. Holmes, whose history with Nugent goes back to 70s hits like Stranglehold and Cat Scratch Fever, returns to sing lead.
