CMT Premiere: Joshua Hedley Applies Honkytonk to his Broken Heart in “Neon Blue” Video

Joshua Hedley said he didn't want "Neon Blue" to be his "typical brand of sad-sack country."

Joshua Hedley calls himself a “singing professor of country & western,” and he earns his title in his new song “Neon Blue.” An up-tempo, twangy tune about a broken heart, “Neon Blue” sounds like a mid-‘90s honky-tonk anthem.

“The last bastion of country music was the early 1990s, roughly 1989 and 1996,” Hedley said. “You could turn on the radio and immediately know you’re hearing a country song. You could still hear steel guitar and fiddle.”
