Aubrie Sellers, one of CMT’s Next Women of Country, will release her debut album, New City Blues, later this month. But until then, we can all “Sit Here and Cry.”
Sellers’ brand new video for “Sit Here and Cry” was shot at Nashville’s Springwater Supper Club, and the country newcomer told me that after she and Adam Wright wrote the tune, she knew wanted the video to reflect how different the song is from its title.
“It sounds like it would be a sad, downer of a song, but the energy of the song is really rocking. And I wanted the video to be a celebration and a party,” she told me. “We shot it with Roger Pistole at Springwater, which is like a hole in the wall joint, so it turned out really cool.”
The first time any of us saw Sellers in a music video, she was only 9 years old, and she had a starring role in her mother Lee Ann Womack’s video for “I Hope You Dance” in 2000.
And, she says, while her own kind of country music isn’t exactly like the traditional country her mom has been making for the past two decades, she knows she sounds a lot like Womack vocally. Sellers also gets some of her musical DNA from her father, singer-songwriter Jason Sellers. (Her parents divorced in 1996.)
