The stunning retro visuals take you through the journey of infidelity. Says the singer, “It’s the apology so many spouses deserve, but never get. The other woman is coming forward to break the news to the wife about an affair, respecting her enough to have that hard conversation, once she realized he was married. And in true country fashion, I’ve set the whole raw story to upbeat music, so you can dance while you process it all.”
California-born singer/songwriter Cam emerged as one of the true breakthrough artists of the past two years. Her international hit, “Burning House” garnered Cam her first Platinum record, #1 country single and earned her a GRAMMY® Award nomination for Best Country Solo Performance, six nods at the Academy of Country Music Awards, three at the CMT Music Awards, two CMA Awards nominations and one at the 2016 American Music Awards. “Burning House” is still the most-downloaded song by a female country artist since its release in 2015 and is off Cam’s debut album Untamed, which debuted at #2 on Billboard ’s Top Country Albums chart with the year’s best first-week album sales by a debut country artist. Produced by GRAMMY-winning Producer of the Year Jeff Bhasker (Harry Styles, Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars) and multiple-GRAMMY nominee Tyler Johnson (Harry Styles, Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran), Untamed was met with widespread critical acclaim from The New York Times,Entertainment Weekly, PEOPLE, Associated Press, and many others. Since her debut, Cam has appeared on national TV programs including Good Morning America, Today, CBS This Morning, The Voice, The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Talk, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, LIVE with Kelly, The Grammys, CMA Awards, ACM Awards, and The 10th ACM Honors CBS special with Alicia Keys. In addition to sharing the stage with music superstars like Harry Styles, George Strait and Tim McGraw & Faith Hill, 2017 also highlighted Cam’s prolific songwriting. Cam co-wrote the song “Palace” off Sam Smith’s latest release, The Thrill Of It All . The track, which includes Cam contributing background vocals and electric guitar, was featured in the recent Holiday commercial for Apple. Now in 2018, Cam returns with a bold new single, “Diane,” the lead song off her forthcoming Arista Nashville/RCA Records sophomore album. Joining forces again with her “Burning House” co-writers, “Diane” is a driving, tempo-rich track that delivers a sonically refreshing tale of love, regret, and commiseration. Less than a month after its release, the song was praised as one of the Best Songs (all-genre) of 2017 by NPR and #3 on the 25 Best Country Songs of 2017 by Rolling Stone Country and made a multi-week residency on Spotify’s Viral 50 USA Chart.
