Indigo Summer – “Wishful Drinking”

You may remember Indigo Summer from their previous videos “A1A” and “Something You Miss.” The duo (Bryan Edwards and Hope Nix) took the country world by storm when they released their self-titled debut album last October. They have opened for some of the biggest names in the industry, including Keith Urban, Jason Aldean, and Charlie Daniels. Their new single “Wishful Drinking” was co-written with Ashlee Whitley of Post Monroe and is the first of four singles to be released by the duo in 2018. The dreamy and contemplative new video showcases Edwards and Nix performing at a bar as a story of lost love, pining, and an attempt to move unfolds before the viewer. Directed by Stephen Byrum and Dylan Price, “Wishful Drinking” was shot over the course of one evening in Nashville, TN.

Haley and Michaels – “Me Too” (feat. Tirana Banks)

Husband and wife duo Haley & Michaels have released a new song inspired by their reaction to the #MeToo movement stating that, “We are very inspired and moved by the movement and the strength it shows and gives to others. We’ve always been driven to write about things that have impacted us and moved us deeply.” The anthem sends a message to survivors everywhere letting them know that they are not alone. The song has been called an “empowering statement of solidarity” by Refinery29, and Parade declared “Me Too” “a song that offers both hope and understanding to anyone who’s been there.”

The video directed by Tommy Douglas, features a diverse group of individuals standing strong together in solidarity joined by a vocal collaboration and video appearance from #MeToo movement founder, Tarana Burke. “We could not have dreamed of a more meaningful collaboration,” the duo stated adding that one hundred percent of the song’s proceeds will be going toward Burke’s organization, Girls for Gender Equality. The new video debuted last week on TIME, and since its launch it already has over 1.2 million streams on Youtube.
