Cam has followed the success of her breakout smash “Burning House” with yet another visually stunning, deeply symbolic video for her new single “Mayday.”
Starring as a 1930s Amelia Earhart-esque pilot in the throwback piece, Cam sings about being stuck in a bad relationship and not having the guts to leave.
Even though — spoiler alert — the flight doesn’t end well, Cam’s character in the video inspires a young girl to follow her dreams.
In real life, the song somewhat relates to the current resurgence of women in country music.
“There seems to be a lot of similarities in country music right now,” Cam told People magazine in a behind-the-scenes exclusive.
“There’s kind of a similar feeling where you get to be one of the few women. It shouldn’t be that way. But hopefully this is an inspiring thing for a lot of other women musicians that are going to come back.”
