Eric Church Releases Second Video In Cryptic Series

EC_TO_Cvr_5x5_300_PRINT

A distraught young woman, given a second chance. A mysterious funeral dated back in 1995. A present day heated altercation in a garage. An angry young man taking out his frustrations on a classic car with a bat. Sound like you’re watching the latest series on prime time? Is this by David Lynch?

Nope.

That was all part of Eric Church‘s video “San Destino Rising: Movimiento De Una” which, set up his latest video “A Man Who Was Gonna Die Young.” All the players are back, moving the storyline along, this time with Eric singing solemnly interspersed. This unique way of sharing the stories he tells in song on his album The Outsiders is a great way of getting fans involved in them. Says Eric:

“I love mysteries. That’s kind of where this whole video thing, when we started this teaser thing, we already had the concept for what these videos were gonna be. And we wanted it to be this big mystery, level of intrigue, that just was fun for fans that we could have this thing of trying to figure it out and looking at where clues were.”

Fans are encouraged, as the videos are released, to pay attention to the clues and characters that Eric and his team are laying down. After all, don’t we all want to know whose funeral is going on on the roadside?

“All the characters that are in that, light will be shed on them as we go through this single process and video process. Throughout this entire album, that storyline will continue to play out and the ending is quite remarkable. We’ll get to that one day.”

We are definitely looking forward to it!

PREMIERE: Cassadee Pope’s New Video – “I Wish I Could Break Your Heart”

Fresh off the heels of Cassadee Pope‘s Top 10 debut country music single, “Wasting All These Tears,” comes her next sure-to-be hit song, “I Wish I Could Break Your Heart,” and its accompanying music video. Cassadee’s sophomore country single shows a different side of the multifaceted young artist who has experienced enormous successes since breaking into the genre.

“I Wish I Could Break Your Heart” is a song about wishing you could get revenge against someone who hurt you, but, because of the love you had for the person, you would never follow through — even though it sure would be nice! The video for this single shows country music fans a completely different side of Cassadee, specifically in the catchy chorus where she channels her rocker roots, lets loose, and sets her feet firmly in her comfort zone.

Fans who have had the pleasure of seeing Cassadee live will recognize the honesty in the performance aspects of the music video, as the high energy, fun-loving Cassadee you see on your screen is the Cassadee you will get in concert. Fans of one of country music’s biggest breakout female artists as of late will also notice (and enjoy) the sneaky smile that spreads across Cassadee’s face as she sings the vengeful lyrics, almost as if she has a secret that she has no intention of sharing. Another standout quality of this music video is the gorgeous artistry, specifically with the glass heart shattering to the touch throughout and the strategically placed lit hearts in the performance sections.

On an album chock full of potential hits, Cassadee and her team got it right with the release of “I Wish I Could Break Your Heart.” We are certain this single will continue Cassadee on her uphill climb to the top of the list of influential females in country music.

I have never had so much fun writing, recording and performing a song before,” says Houghton. “I went into this video wanting to put a smile on people’s faces. I hope my fans have as much fun watching it as I had shooting it!”
