Country pop sensation Carly Waddell delights us with her latest song/video Your Friends Like Me More. Born and raised in Dallas, Carly has toured around the world and performed in front of many audiences. She is now fulfilling her lifelong dream of recording her own original music and sharing it with the world.
Let me tell you a little about Carly‘s background. Her first performance was at 7, this was the moment when her passion for acting and singing awakened. As part of the CAP21 program at Tisch School of the Arts, she continued performing in musicals and country music reviews. Stefani Germanotta, better known as Lady Gaga, was one of the students. Then she started studying at the University of Oklahoma, acting alongside Broadway legends like Kelli O’Hara and Will Charse at the Lyric Theatre. She started working in the cruise industry, where she performed in cabarets, review shows, and sang her own music for guests. She traveled around the world but returned to Dallas. She was a regular on the Bachelor franchise where she met Evan Bass. They stayed married for five years before sadly breaking up. Now she’s a proud mom of two. While Carly took a break to be a mom, she prepared to return to the music industry. She was thrilled to do what she loved most. Writing, recording and performing. She’s living proof there’s no holding back when chasing your dreams.
Your Friends Like Me More is the first single from her upcoming EP. Carly shows us her musical prowess, while the rhythm is very lighthearted, her lyrics are powerful and with a touch of bittersweet, showing us that she’s moving forward with a “I don’t give a damn” attitude. Her voice is strong and full of emotion. The track’s production is modern and upbeat, making it enjoyable to listen to. The song is a flawless balance of emotion and energy. Carly‘s Your Friends Like Me More is a strong statement of her newfound resilience and determination. Suffice it to say, Carly is not playing around this time – she means business!
Visually, the video is simple but effective. Carly shared this with her friends. She let it all out. A warm hue permeates the landscape and makes everything feel right, as though we are at home. The music and visuals come together to create an atmosphere of acceptance and understanding. It is a reminder that sometimes, all we need is a safe space where we can express ourselves freely. We can all relate to this feeling, and it is one that should be cherished. The video captures this sentiment and captures it beautifully. It is a reminder that we are not alone and that we can always find solace in each other. This feeling of togetherness and acceptance is something that we all seek and strive for. It is a reminder that we can find comfort and understanding even in our darkest moments. The video brings this sentiment to life, creating a safe space for viewers to explore and express their emotions. This space of understanding is something that we should all cherish and strive to create in our everyday lives.
I’m very excited about her upcoming EP. This single is nothing short of amazing. I’m sure it will be full of similarly moving and inspiring themes. We can all benefit from listening to her music and reflecting on our own emotions. The video is live on YouTube. Please go listen/watch it. You won’t regret it!
