Nashville Scene Music Video Premiere “Crazy Over Love”

“Sometimes, when things aren’t going well, the last thing you want is someone asking how you’re doing — or even worse, telling you to cheer up. That particular kind of salt in the wound runs throughout “Crazy Over Love,” a melancholy tune in which Tanya Montana Coe, daughter of outlaw country cult hero David Allan Coe, looks back over her shoulder at a relationship she’d rather forget.”

So excited for y’all to check out my new video for “Crazy Over Love”  This is the only song on the album that I play guitar on because it wasn’t recorded in the studio. We ended up using the voice memo that I recorded on my phone the night I wrote it. Special thanks to theNashville Scene Nashville Cream for the premiere, Shane Tutmarc for filming and editing, the American Legion Post 82 and all our friends fromHonkyTonk Tuesday Nights!

“The artists that have dominated the country charts for many years have become household names: Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, Kenny Chesney, etc.But there is a thriving underground country music scene that features artists holding true to the old school, honky-tonk sounds and draw influence from bluegrass, popular country of the 60s and 70s as well as the mountain hymns of Appalachia and the delta blues. In recent years, this music has received more attention thanks to ground breaking releases from troubadours like Sturgill Simpson and Margo Price.”

Special thanks to 95.3 The Bear for including me and my song “How Low” on this list!
