RCA Records artist Joanna Smith spent a rainy Friday in scenic downtown Franklin, Tenn. recently shooting a music video for her debut RCA single “We Can’t Be Friends,” from her Be What It Wants To Be EP. The clip follows Smith as she runs into her old flame and deals with the heartache of knowing it’s time to move on. Directed by Ry Cox and produced by April Dace for Revolution Pictures, the video will hit airwaves next month.
