We consider ourselves at NYCountry Swag to have our finger on the pulse of new music and new talent in the industry. LAKEVIEW, a duo comprised of Jesse Denaro and Luke Healy are another act that we believe has a big career ahead of them. We recently caught up with them for our Swag Spotlight feature, and now we are introducing fans to their brand new song, “She Drove Me To the Bar.”
The Nashville transplants wrote and ultimately recorded the track with Dave Thomson. Although it is a song about drinking to get over heartbreak, the men somehow manage to bring a unique perspective to the lyrics. The title itself is a clever play on words, using figurative language, rather than literal language. In other words, someone’s actions made them want to go to the bar. The men sing the catchy lyric, “She ain’t even in the car, but she drove me to the bar” hooking fans almost instantly.
With the upcoming music video, the men hope to showcase the song through a different lens. “As things unfold this year with the tornado and the Coronavirus, our friend at The Crying Wolf bar was impacted not only financially, but our friend Andrew, some of the people that worked in his bar tragically died in the tornadoes,” they shared with us, “We wanted to show support for tour friends and a city that has welcomed us without asking any questions.”
The trajectory of the music video took a turn, and the men of LAKEVIEW utilized their platform for those affected in Nashville to talk and share about their experiences and how we can all help. “It is going to be a cool opportunity to showcase how these local business owners work so hard to support their communities.”
Check back next week for the official music video.
