The music video has a fun organic quality that really brings her single to life. Just regular people enjoying a night out, and perhaps enjoying it a little too much? Brenda hopes that the video will inspire some living room line dancing as many folks are staying home and their favorite public venues are closed right now. Brenda shares, "I hope this video brings smiles and a little laughter to everyone that needs it!" The single falls into the category that we hear often, "classic country". With it's upbeat and catchy lyrics and toe stomping beats it is quickly becoming a line dancing favorite in our favorite country venues. Brenda is known for her clever classic story telling lyrics. She brings a charm to her songs and although she is a mild mannered southern lady her sense of humor shines through the story line. 1-2-3-Floor has an infectious rhythm and the lyrics are witty and fun. The story line is relatable because most of us have that memory of drinking too much and losing ourselves in the moment. Brenda has performed the single out at gigs and the crowd quickly catches the spirit and sings along. This is what country music has always been about. No bells and whistles here, just a good ol' country music tune. "The idea for this song was something I read on a t-shirt while in Gatlinburg, TN. The shirt was a warning against drinking too much moonshine. It made me smile and resonated with me..so of course I wrote a song."
The instrumental tracks for 1-2-3-Floor were recorded at Sound Resources with Steve Babb, Fred Schendel and Brian Brewer (Chattanooga, TN). The vocal tracks were engineered in Nashville with Justine Blazer Productions and Kristin K. Smith on vocal production.
