Songwriter and country music artist Brenda Cay has been spreading her songwriting skills behind the scenes from Chattanooga to Nashville, TN.
In 2019, she decided to put her vocals behind some of her songs as a vehicle to share her gift of lyrical genius with her fans. “1-2-3-Floor,” Brenda’s first single release from forth-coming EP, has an infectious rhythm with lyrics that are witty and fun. The story line is relatable because most of us have that memory of drinking too much and losing ourselves in the moment. Brenda has performed the single out at gigs and the crowd quickly catches the spirit and sings along. This is what country music has always been about. No bells and whistles here, just a good ol’ country music tune.
Brenda shared, “The idea for this song was something I read on a t-shirt while in Gatlinburg, TN. The shirt was a warning against drinking too much moonshine. It made me smile and resonated with me..so of course I wrote a song.”
The single was released on February 21st, 2020 and we are excited to share with you the premiere of the accompanying music video:
