Kelleigh Bannen Goes Behind ‘Cheap Sunglasses’ [Exclusive Premiere]
Kelleigh Bannen gives some insight into the music industry in a two-part exclusive behind-the-scenes video about her new EP, Cheap Sunglasses. Taste of Country premieres the video today and next Thursday (July 28).
"Right now I don't know what's going to happen, but for the first time in five years I get to put music out," she says with a big smile at the start of the clip, which airs from a rooftop that overlooks the Nashville skyline.
Bannen recently separated from her label, which now gives her the freedom to release her music when she wishes. The nearly four-minute video documentary shows a typical day for the singer, with cameos from her friends, band, personal trainer and dog.
Whether she's onstage doing push-ups with the band before the show, making cocktails for friends or simply playing with her dog, Bannen's positive energy is contagious.
It hasn't been an easy road for Bannen, but she believes that community and fellowship will keep her going.
"S--t is going to happen, but we're all in it together," she says.
This can be seen firsthand, as she has some truck trouble when the camera pans to her turning the ignition and the truck doesn't turn on. After a few tries she manages to get it started, proving that not every day is sunshine and roses, but Bannen manages to stay optimistic through it all.
After an intense workout and a show with her band, she's back at home with her friends, mixing cocktails and hanging out in the pool. Fellow singer Mickey Guyton even makes an appearance as the friends sing Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody."
Watch Bannen's Cheap Sunglasses documentary above. Her new EP, Cheap Sunglasses, is out now.
