Alexis Taylor gets all warm ’n’ fuzzy with a new love in her breezy, bouncy single and video Cool With That — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
“It’s a fun, flirty tune about that ‘puppy love’ stage of a relationship,” the Huntsville, Ont. country-pop artist quips. “It’s about that stage where you just can’t get enough of each other.”
Taylor’s audience certainly can’t get enough of her. Since first stepping onto the scene in 2016, the second-generation songwriter has racked up over 200,000 streams across all platforms, played Canadian Music Week, CMA Fest in Nashville, and opened for the likes of Marshall Tucker Band, Love and Theft, Meghan Patrick, Doug Seegers (on his Scandinavian tour!) and more. She’s won Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2018 Tennessee Music Awards, and has been nominated for Modern Country Vocalist of the Year at the 2020 Josie Music Awards this September.
On the topic of Tennessee: Cool With That was recorded and produced in Nashville with award-winning artist and producer John Willis (Shania Twain, Taylor Swift, Willie Nelson, Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan). On the other hand, most of the scenes from the video were filmed in her hometown of Huntsville, a rural region about 200 kilometres north of Toronto. “I wanted to reflect who I am when I’m not on the road or on stage,” she explains. “It was nice to be able to include where I grew up in this music video. Where I’m from is a big part of who I am, and it has made me the person I am today!”
And as for her co-star: “I wanted to shoot something that would leave a smile on people’s faces. I think he adds an undeniable amount of cuteness to the song, don’t you?”
