NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 07, 2023) — Country singer-songwriter Brei Carter‘s jovial pop-country anthem “Straight Up Country Crazy” is proving to be popular among her fans and with certain Music Row tastemakers. The song’s music video treatment rolled out today in an exclusive premiere during her Coffee, Country & Cody appearance on Circle All Access & WSM Radio. Carter teased fans with a sneak peak of the new video ahead of its official release on Saturday, July 08 at 9am CT on YouTube. The video, which is simply a good old-fashioned barn party Brei hosted with some of her friends and music pals, is also scheduled to premiere on The Country Network on Monday, July 10, at CMT.com on Friday, July 14, and as part of AIM Country Network‘s Your New Favorite Song premiering on Sunday, July 09. The song is also gaining traction on Spotify, having been recently added to their Hot Country & Country Hits editorial playlists. Carter co-wrote the song with Ken Matthiesen, Blaine Younger, and Rachel Seiler.
“Country isn’t just a place, it’s a state of mind,” says Carter. “It’s where sanity rides shotgun with a little bit of crazy, beatin’ the dust off life’s dirt road. This is what I call straight up country crazy. It’s a movement of freedom!”
Known for having a vivacious and dynamic personality which directly translates into her music, the fast rising country songstress first premiered the song on Nashville.com ahead of its June 9 release by Brown Lee Entertainment & The Orchard (orcd.co/BreiCarterCountryCrazy). Brei also teased the song for the first time with her band live on WSMV-TV’s Today In Nashville in May.
