The summer excitement continues for LuckySky Music recording artist Tori Martin. Not only was “Fun,” the second single from her forthcoming album, Lucky, released just weeks ago and is already nearing 30,000 streams, but the “Fun” video is now out and recently premiered on her YouTube channel via a virtual release party.
The video was filmed earlier this year in and around Azle, Texas (in the Dallas/Fort Worth area) where Martin spent her early years before moving to Nashville to pursue her musical dreams. It was directed by Dave Pelletier and produced by Go Media. Martin added, “I adored having the opportunity to film this video with my family and close friends in Fort Worth, and I will cherish it forever! I hope you love the video as much as I do and have “fun” every time you watch it!”
The catchy uptempo tune was co-written with award-winning songwriters, Kirsti Manna (Blake Shelton’s “Austin”), Bill DiLuigi, and produced by Bill Warner, also President of LuckySky Music. More at https://www.thetorimartin.com/.
