Acclaimed Nashville singer-songwriter Caitlin Rose heads to the stables in her new music video for “Nobody’s Sweetheart.”
Released today (Sept. 28), the fresh track serves as the latest preview of Rose’s highly-awaited new record Cazimi, due out Nov. 18 via Missing Pierce Records. Co-written with accomplished songwriter and producer Daniel Tashian, “Nobody’s Sweetheart” finds Rose trying to accept the cards she’s been dealt. She embraces herself and the life she’s cultivated wholly, rejecting the societal norms and expectations others may have.
“For a long time I was doing a little series on Instagram where I would punchline all of the old sheet music I was collecting,” Rose explains. “There’s a 1924 tune called ‘Nobody’s Sweetheart’ and I added ‘and nobody’s fool’ as a crack. I ended up taking it down because I knew it would be a really fun one to write. Daniel Tashian just happened to be on my schedule that week and was the perfect musical cohort to explore this. I wanted something anthemic and fun (and easy) to play in sets and that definitely scratched the itch.”
Directed by Austin Leih, the track’s charming, nostalgic music video finds Rose saddling up for a ride around Loretta Lynn‘s Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn.
“Similarly, the video just came out of wanting to ride horses and, more specifically, that I always thought Nobody’s Sweetheart was a perfect racing name. We were able to film at the Loretta Lynn ranch thanks to some amazing friends. Crystal Lynn patiently guided me through an entire week’s worth of riding lessons in one day. I’m so thankful to the Lynn family for one of the best days I’ve had in a long time and for this perfect opportunity to become a born-again horse girl.”
