The Swon Brothers are highlighting their love for Nashville in the new music video for their single “Don’t Call Me.” The song is the lead release from their recently-released EP, Pretty Cool Scars, and is one that stood out to the duo almost immediately after listening to it for the first time.
“Me and my brother knew we had something golden when we just sat down and played it for the first time in the living room with just the two of us, and it just felt like it was written for us,” said Zach Swon (quote via The Boot).
Fans seemed to agree with the brothers’ sentiment as they tried it out on the road during their opening slot on Carrie Underwood’s Storyteller Tour.
“We always like to try out songs in our live show before we make the decision to record them. We like to listen to our fans that way, and hands down, our fans gave us every indication that this was definitely a keeper,” Zach explained.
The video was directed by Jeff Johnson and produced by Ryan Schmidt for FlyHi Films. The clip follows a couple picking up the pieces of a broken love while also featuring some of Music City’s most notable cityscapes.
“We were so excited when Jeff sent us his treatment for this video. He really captured the message and essence of the song,” said Zach. “Jeff is the master. We are so proud of how this video turned out and we really love the great shots of our second home, Nashville,” added his brother, Colton.
The Swon Brothers will take their new single and plenty of other tracks from Pretty Cool Scars to fans as they are set to perform during the 2017 CMA Music Festival on the Cherovlet Park Stage, located in the Park between the Hilton Suites and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
