After releasing his new single "Nothing To Lose" ahead of schedule, thanks to a flood of attention surrounding the track, Bret Michaels headed to late night show Lopez Tonight for the first live performance of the ballad. Michaels stripped down the performance sitting under the stage lights just himself and an acoustic guitar, as the song was originally written. Witnessing the audience's reaction to Michaels' heartfelt performance George Lopez closed with, "That is how real rockstars do it!" Fans of Bret can catch him on tour starting March 12th and on the new season of Celebrity Apprentice starting March 14th. "Nothing To Lose" is also available on iTunes and at www.BretMichaels.com on CD which includes all five recorded versions of the song; solo, solo acoustic, featuring Miley Cyrus, acoustic featuring Miley Cyrus and a country version also featuring the Disney starlet. "Nothing To Lose" will also be on Michaels' forthcoming full-length Custom Built.
