Country newcomer Sherry Lynn, who is among Examiner’s “Top 5 Female Country Newcomers” of 2014, debuts the new video for her “Girls Will Be Girls” music today on CMT.com.
The clip, per an April 28 email from her PR camp, “offers a visual feast-filled with fun images of classic cars, a bachelorette party and lissome line-dancers, while the song’s hooky chorus and melodic riffs make for a toe-tapping sonic boom.”
Regarding the making of the retro-inspired video, “It was really cool being around all the old classic cars, especially the General Lee, since I am a ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ re-run fan,” Lynn told exclusively told Examiner on April 28.
“I had the full support of all the locals and they made this video extra special,” she added. “My retro dress with (the) patent leather belt was a total find; I found it online at Pin Up Girl clothing. I found my patent leather six-inch spike heels at my local mall in Deptford, N.J.”
Produced by Tom Frkovich (Kennedy Center, Amazon, United Way) and co-directed by Nicole Agostino (“Silver Linings Playbook”) and Frkovich, the clip was shot in New Jersey at various locations, including the Tombstone Saloon (Buena), Joe’s Lean To Garage (Franklinville) and Paulsboro High School (Paulsboro). Additional footage was captured at a private home in Paulsboro.
The “Girls Will Be Girls” track is contained on Lynn’s sophomore CD, “A Beautiful Life.” The 10-track collection was released March 11 under the Steal Heart Music imprint. Last year, the entertainer made her Grand Ole Opry debut, alongside Country legend Crystal Gayle, singing their hit duet, “Beautiful Life.” Lynn also entertained crowds during CMA Music Festival week, released a popular holiday video (“Christmas On My Mind”) and played select dates throughout the year.
Inked by Ashley Gorley, the 2009 ASCAP Songwriter of the Year; Kelley Lovelace, who’s penned eight No. 1s for Brad Paisley; and Bryan Simpson, “Girls” is a rowdy recap of modern femininity. In turn, choreographers Bob and Marlene Peyre-Ferry were inspired to create a popular line dance that is being promoted at clubs nationwide while the single continues its rise (No. 41 at this writing) on the MusicRow Chart.
