Nashville-based singer songwriter & CMT's Next Woman of Country Emily Hackettreleased her official video for her single "Easy," out everywhere today on Youtube/Vevo. The Preston Leatherman directed visual, which premiered yesterday on Atwood Magazine, was inspired in part by True Detective Season 3. '“Easy” is written in the form of questioning myself," Emily explains. "So when I was conceptualizing the video, my mind went to a questioning room at a police station. I loved the last season of True Detective, so I thought it would be cool to take that idea and give it the seventies feel of much of that season. We allude to me being two characters in the video but we don’t reveal that I’m both detective and the one in question until the end. I wanted a cinematic feel to match the eerie tone of the song." Watch the official video HERE.
"Enchanting and vulnerable, Nashville artist Emily Hackett’s “Easy” explores the aftermath of betrayal and heartbreak through an arrestingly cinematic portrayal of love, pain, and self-reflection." - Mitch Mosk, Atwood Magazine
