NYCS Exclusive Video Premiere: Brett Sheroky “Better On Paper”

Nashville singer-songwriter, Brett Sheroky is premiering a video for his latest single “Better On Paper” exclusively with NYCountry Swag today.  The lyrics are honest and raw, outlining a relationship that’s falling apart and the emotions one feels during that tragic time.

The video which is entirely in black and white is simple, no frills but allows for an uncomplicated listen to the lyric.  Sheroky sits at a table, fumbling through a box of old keepsakes and reminiscing on when things were not as difficult. With each item he tosses into the garbage, a memory goes with them, as his left hand is prominently featured, still wearing his wedding band.  Ultimately and reluctantly he signs the divorce papers, struggling with every pen stroke and leaves his wedding band on top.  “Better On Paper” is also one of our September Picks: “What We are Listening To”.

The song and video are certainly not for tailgating at a concert, but something about the truth in the lyrics and the storytelling is what country music is based upon.  Watch the video for “Better On Paper”  below and follow Brett Sheroky on social media, on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

    Good stuff. The perfect voice to relay the raw emotion of these lyrics. Of course with that voice, this guy could sing an excerpt of the phone book and I’d be all in! Keep ‘em coming, Brett. This is just the beginning!

    Brett – This is it, this is exactly what i meant! Its perfect. So gut wrenching, raw, and real, yet elegant, and simple. The story is told in your voice. But the video conveyed emotions not heard . Fantastic job my friend . Cant wait to share this!!!
