“Sometimes as artists, we get all the credit, but man, without the songs, we wouldn’t be anything. I just want people to know that songwriters, they make the music world go-round and I’m just glad to be one. I love being on stage and singing, but if all I got to do was write songs, then I think I’d be all right. But, I’m going to keep singing them while they let me!”
I don’t think the album would’ve been the same without this one. So glad it’s finally at country radio! Turn it up.. summer is here 🤝🍻 pic.twitter.com/tq6JKG0ig5

The video for She Had Me At Heads Carolina was directed by Spidey Smith and filmed at a downtown Nashville bar in the legendary Printer’s Alley.
In the video, a man walks into a bar on karaoke night and instantly falls for a woman singing the Jo Dee Messina hit Heads Carolina, Tails California.
Jo Dee Messina makes a cameo appearance in the video as the bartender.
“I was so excited when I got the chance to talk to Jo Dee and let her know that I’ve been a fan of hers for a long time. Now I to get to call her a friend. We wouldn’t have this song without her.”
