Candi Carpenter Releases Stunning Video for Her New Song “Cry Baby”

 

“Syrupy pedal steel pairs with Carpenter’s rich timbre and soaring high notes on ‘Cry Baby.'” – The Boot

Up and coming Nashville-based country singer Candi Carpenter shows off her powerful voice in her debut music video for her new song, “Cry Baby”, which premiered yesterday on The Boot. “Cry Baby” was inspired by the artist’s first few months in Nashville; she moved to Music City at the age of 15.

“I had the opportunity to perform with other icons like Loretta Lynn, Little Jimmy Dickens, Porter Wagoner and Jean Shepard. Patsy Cline is one of my biggest influences, and “Cry Baby” pays homage not only to her, but also to my traditional country background.”

In addition to the “Cry Baby” music video, Carpenter wants fans to send in videos of them lip-syncing the song for a lyric video, to be released this spring. Those interested can e-mail submissions to TeamCandiLand@gmail.com, with a note stating that Carpenter can use the clip. Fans are also encouraged to share their videos on social media.

More about Candi Carpenter

“I write my best songs when men piss me off,” says Candi Carpenter, whose fiery first single, “Burn The Bed” tells the story of a scorned woman’s cheating husband. Her aching, soulful voice has drawn comparisons to Janis Joplin and Patsy Cline, while critics have dubbed her “the modern Loretta Lynn” of country songwriting.

“A lot of people say I have a crazy story,” she says. “Maybe I do, but I think we’re all messed up in our own way. That’s why I write about the bad, the ugly, and the good that makes it all worthwhile. The hurt, and the healing, and everything in between.”

Candi’s musical roots are buried deep in memories of stained glass windows and dog eared hymnals, as she toured the midwest with her family’s gospel band. At age 11, she crashed a Vince Gill concert by writing “Can I yodel for you?” on the back of a ticket stub. Later that year, she signed her first production deal in Nashville. She traded high school for a small room at The Shoney’s Inn downtown, and the stages of honky tonk dives like Tootsies and The Broken Spoke Saloon became her classroom. She performed every night until the bars closed down, hiding from the police in the bathrooms.
