Country artist Alyssa Trahan released her new single “We Used To Be Happy” on January 27, 2021, and today we are pleased to premiere the Official Music Video for the acoustic version of her recently released song.
“This song is all about nostalgia and longing for the early days of a relationship when it’s still new and unknown before life inevitably gets in the way. The production is super cool and modern, but as with all of my songs, the acoustic guitar is at the center of it all.”
~ Alyssa Trahan
The track shares a sense of deep longing for what could have been. Kicking off the first verse, written by Trahan and co-producer Jonathan Guzman along with Adam Drexler and David Cole, with vivid visuals, she traces the story of romantic fallout when the magic disappears.

“This is my favorite song I’ve ever released. Working with Jonathan on the production really made it sparkle and it has some of my favorite lyrics in it. This is a little sneak peek into my upcoming album and I couldn’t be more excited!” said Trahan.
