Having released her sophomore album, Jet Engines, this past June, Alabama country singer/songwriter Amy McCarley has a new video for “Smart Man,” the last song to make the final cut. Owing more to the longing of Jet Engines’ acoustic opener, “Everybody Wants To,” than the rambling “Head Out of Town” or skittering “Hands Tied,” the downbeat “Smart Man” with McCarley’s curt delivery speaks to the song’s lyrics of immediacy and ambition.
And on the sidelines
You never get what you’re after
It’s just another way to lose your mind
It’s just another way to waste your time
McCarley has a number of dates scheduled throughout the southeast for the remainder of 2014. See her schedule here.
