Bill Anderson & Dolly Parton Team Up For Newest Music Video
Bill Anderson and Dolly Parton have teamed up for a special music video for their duet “Someday It’ll All Make Sense.” The track was originally featured on Anderson’s 2016 compilation project, As Far As I Can See: The Best Of.
The two country legends, Anderson’s publicists and management, and Parton’s manager were on hand with the video’s director, Trea Fanjoy, during the shoot earlier this week.
“Working with my ol’ buddy Bill Anderson was the most meaningful fun I’ve had in years,” shared Parton. “I love the song we sang, I love how we sounded together on it and getting to do a video with him was just icing on the cake. I hope the fans enjoy it as much as we enjoyed being together on it.”
Brooke Eden Visits Girls Inc. As Part Of Music Matters Campaign
Earlier this month, Brooke Eden participated in her second Music Matters with RIAA event as she visited with campers at Girls Inc. at YWCA Nashville & Middle Tennessee. During her visit, she performed music from her upcoming EP, Choosing You, shared how music inspired her to be her true self, and encouraged campers to share their stories and what songs have inspired them.
“Girls Inc. is a safe, girl-powered environment where we encourage our students to value themselves and discover their strengths,” explains Vanessa Helbig Johnson, Executive Director of Girls Inc. “Partnerships like these give us the opportunity to connect with our girls and show them that there are many avenues of self-discovery and expression. Brooke’s story and leadership created a safe and brave space for our girls’ confidence to grow so they can chase their dreams for the future.”
Music Matters with RIAA is a partnership designed to demonstrate how music can enable our authentic voice, give us purpose, connect us to each other and give us strength and courage to navigate life’s challenges. Eden also previously spoke with Congressman David Cicilline, Chair of the Congressional LGBTQ+ Equality Caucus, about LGBTQ+ equality and representation.
