Alabama singer-songwriter Amy McCarley has been gaining a steady buzz since releasing her self-titled debut in 2011, even being listed as one of 12 Northern Alabama artists to watch by The Huntsville Times that very year. This June McCarley released her highly anticipated follow-up, Jet Engines, earning praise for her thoughtful lyrics, sultry voice, and one-of-a-kind Americana tunes.
Glide Magazine is excited to premiere the first official music video off Jet Engines, “Smart Man.” To give some insight into what the song is all about, Amy McCarley offers these thoughts…
““Smart Man,” the last cut to make my new album, Jet Engines, was written as I was evaluating whether it was time to go back into the studio. The song is about making the continued commitment to pursue a career path more for passion than security and the inevitability of suffering, the impermanence of existence and the freedom that comes with the acceptance of those facts.”
