Taylon Hope has released the first single and official video from her third album which was produced by Kent Wells. The single, “Country In Me,” was penned by hit songwriter Bridgette Tatum (“She’s Country” recorded by Jason Aldean) and Taylon Hope. “This song really defines who I am. I was honored to work with Bridgette Tatum while writing the song as she has a very in depth way of reaching into your soul to bring out the feelings and put them into words,” says Taylon. “We filmed the video at a very quaint rural setting in Franklin and I think it captures the meaning of the song and translates everything I wanted to say and feel into a visual for the listeners.”
“A little Reba McEntire on a backwoods winding road. If you turn it up I’m gonna sing along.
Every single mile, it’s filling up my soul and if I get to far, it always brings me home.
There’s a feeling I can find every single time.
That put the Country in Me. That’s the things I love and the things I grew up on.
That put the Country in Me. And I’ll take it with me, take it with me, take it with me everywhere I go.
Everywhere I go yeah…”
